Can I do this part time?

Not at the moment. Kenzie Academy offers a demanding learning program, students are required to commit to full-time participation. Learning how to code is learning a new language; devotion and immersion are required. Students with extensive life and work commitments outside of class would not be a fit for our full-time programs. We will be offering part-time non-career track programs in the future for students interested in learning to code but not yet ready to commit full-time towards the career track.

 

What Is a “Full stack engineer / Developer”?

Full-Stack web developers will be comfortable with both front-end technologies such as HTML, CSS, and Javascript that control the appearance of pages in the web browser, as well as at least one server side language such as Python and effective use of relational databases.
