Before founding San Diego Code School, I was the Chief Academic Officer at a coding bootcamp program that offered a part-time option. The information I am going to share is from my observation of students from many cohorts over the past two years. I am sharing my thoughts with the hope it will help students make an informed decision about how they can successfully learn to code in a short period.
TLDR; While I think part-time programs can work, it’s not a great fit for the majority of students. A part-time accelerated coding program is tricky at best. Painfully discouraging and ineffective at worst.
