FAQs

What does a 'proto class' mean exactly?
This course is an early release intended to streamline our program before we launch this fall. Because we are testing our curriculum and program, we are giving our first students an 80% discount (reflected in the current price). This means that you will be able to take this course for an incredible value and have the opportunity to provide feedback to enhance the course in its full form.
What is the time commitment for this program?
A) This is a 10-week program. Each week, you’re required to attend class Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 6pm to 9pm. The instructor will hold open office hours from 10am to 4pm Monday and Friday, and we recommend utilizing this time and putting in an additional 8 hours of practice on your own each week.
Do I need programming experience to participate?
A) Not at all. Ideal students will have strong critical thinking skills and can demonstrate the ability to solve complex problems in other areas of work. The best asset to a programmer is thinking like a programmer.
How many students are in a class?
A) We’re planning on 15-20 students in our first cohort.
What equipment do I need?
A) You’ll need your own laptop, with the most recent operating system (Windows or OS X) installed, as well as a modern internet browser (Chrome, Firefox, etc).
Can this course help me get a job?
A) While we can’t guarantee placement, it is very possible. Not only are these skills in demand (the unemployment rate among developers is less than 4%), but by locating inside Impact Hub Salt Lake, you’ll be interacting with startups, entrepreneurs, non-profits, and other organizations on a daily basis. The best way to get a job is to make a friend, and learn some awesome new skills.
How good will I be at the end of the course?
A) As long as you take your work very seriously, participate in all classes and projects, and put in some outside practice time, you’ll finish with the solid base abilities for a new, professional programmer. You’ll be able to develop your own website or web app from start to finish. Sure, there will always be more to learn, but you’ll know what questions to ask, know the basic skills necessary for programmers, and know where to look when you’re stuck.
What is the application process?
A) Because this course includes an Impact Hub Salt Lake membership, we will need to make sure you a good fit.
