We do require our students apply for acceptance to our school. We do this for two really important reasons. The first, we want to make sure that everyone that attends our school has the right aptitude for our classes. At Savvy Coders we want all of our graduates to be ready for success and our application process is geared to gauge the student's ability to thrive in our program.
We also need to ensure that our class sizes stay small so our instructors have time for one-on-one interaction. Our application process allows us to segment our students accordingly.
Students typically hear back from us in two to three business days. We are typically able to place students within a week of their application.
We accept cash, check or credit card payable before class begins. We also work with employers who have professional development programs for their employees, offering the necessary documentation as required by the respective companies.
Savvy Coders will allow students to pay with 3 installments of $700, $700 reserves your spot , $700 is due the first day of class and $700 is due 4 weeks later.
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!
The entire class curriculum is made accessible to students on the first day of class and we have each student participate in our class slack channel, this allows for instructor to student communicate during and outside of class hours. On day one, students create their own github profile, which they will contribute to throughout class.
We start class with a preview of what’s going to be covered for that class and at the beginning of each class we do a review of what was covered in the class the time before. We include hack a thons where everyone participates of a project. Most of the material is taught via examples and projects.
We our proud to host classes in Nashville, Chattanooga, and St. Louis.
Our St. Louis, Missouri classes are held at CiC Cortex, located at 4220 Duncan Ave, St. Louis MO 63110
Our Nashville, Tennesee classes are held at Refinery Nashville, 438 Houston St. Ste. 263
Nashville, TN 37203
Our Chattanooga classes are held in cooperation with Tech Town Foundation, at 1100 Market Street Chattanooga, TN 37402.
Generally, classes will be held Monday-Thursday from 6:15pm-9:15pm.
Sometimes, though, holidays happen. So there is always a chance that hours will be modified in some way. We have 120 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.
Probably! If you can type, have your own laptop, and are excited by the idea of 80hrs 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.
We would be happy to talk with your leadership about offering a course specifically for your work group. Please reach out to Elaine Queathem at [email protected].
