Q's and A's about Savvy Coders
Where are classes held?
All classes are held at the Refinery in Nashville. Besides being a warm and inviting location, it also smells of leather-bound books and rich mahogany.
What time are classes held?
Generally, classes will be held Monday-Friday from 6pm-9pm.
Sometimes, though, holidays happen. So there is always a chance that hours will be modified in some way. We have 60 hours of materials to cover, and we're committed to making sure that all class times do not conflict with working hours. This may mean that classes will be held on Saturday to make up for lost time. All schedules will be officially sent out to students before classes start.
Do I have to apply to get in?
We would appreciate it if you fill out our application in the menu at the top of this page. Once you've done that, we'll contact you about how to get started!
How much does the class cost? When do I have to pay?
The month-long class is $1799, payable by check, credit card, or cash before class begins.
What equipment do I need to bring?
You need a laptop that's able to run a modern browser. It can be Mac, Linux, or Windows... just no Chromebooks, please. And that's it!
Where does the class material come from? How do I know it works?
Is this class for me?
Probably! If you can type, have your own laptop, and are excited by the idea of 60hrs of guided technology work, then you've come to the right place.
No previous programming experience is required.
This course is for folks that work during the day or aren't yet ready to commit to a full career change into software engineering. You will, however, be ready to build a killer website, display your work in a public portfolio, and understand the front-end of web development. All of these things will make you a top candidate with the best bootcamps in Nashville and around the country if you choose to pursue programming as a career.
Is financial aid available?
Not at the moment. But we have priced the class such that a graduate would be able to easily cover the cost of tuition by doing freelance web development for local small businesses. With a going rate of $1000 per website for many single-page solutions, the class should pay for itself (and then some!) with just two post-graduation projects.
Does Savvy Coders offer a certificate or diploma?
No, we don't. We offer something better, though: a project-filled portfolio that demonstrates your skills better than any piece of paper ever could.
