FAQ

Q: How much are your courses?

A: We employ a flexible pricing strategy, much the way airlines do. The price we offer you will reflect numerous factors, including your travel distance, and demand for spaces. You'll have a chance to negotiate the price you pay during the extended intake and interview process, finalized at acceptance.


Q: I'm coming from __________. Do you offer travel discounts?

A: In different times the past, we've offered rebates on flights. Now, our flexible pricing has the same effect. 

Q: do you offer accommodations?

A: Yes! If you choose that option, we will find you a place to stay during the duration of the course. Cost will reflect what you're looking for.

Q: can I bring my partner | family | friend to ruby on the beach?

A:  Of course! We love it when people share an awesome once-in-a-lifetime experience with the people they love! (Did we mention that one of our participants named her first baby Ruby, after our course?)

 We can help find accommodation suited to your needs if you do.

People not taking the course can't attend at the school during class time, but there are many social and recreation events that they're welcome to be part of.

Q: What's the curriculum of your course(s)?

A: That can change, as we refine our courses. So we provide that in an information package on request, and as part of the interview process. In general, we  teach you how to

  1. create backends
  2. consume and create APIs
  3.  create programmatic front ends
  4. build responsive browser interfaces
  5. work with sql and non sql datastores, including remote stores
  6. write tests and code to pass tests (TDD)
  7. work in an Agile environment

All of these are much in demand skills that are key to entry level employment. They also stand people looking to include coding services in their design and entrepreneurial businesses in good stead.

Q: Will you find me a job?

A: We may be able to help, with a personalized program to connect students with recruiters and with job offers. No past student who sought programming work after our course failed to find a job within a few months or weeks. Talk to us in the interview process and we'll tell you more.

Q: you suggest that you're focused on entrepreneurs. How?

A: We've seen many entrepreneurs come through our courses, and we know that not everyone is using our course to get an entry level job. While we can't help you build your dream app, we do give you the flexibility to shape the course to meet your specific needs. If this sounds like you, we can talk about it in the interview process.
