Coding Experience

I don’t have any experience coding. Can I still apply?

Ada’s Core Program is not for beginners. Students need to understand foundational concepts such as using loops, lists, and dictionaries. Make sure you take some time looking into free resources – there’s a ton available! Once you get a handle on the fundamentals, expand your knowledge through the Ada Build program for beginners. This is a great start to see if coding is for you!

I would like to apply to the program. Where do I get started?

Our application opens six months before the cohort begins and remains open for approximately three weeks. The application will be accessible on our website once opened. You can expect to submit a resume, short answer essays, and data challenge responses.

Campus Choice

How is the Atlanta campus different from the Digital campus?

Students must relocate to Atlanta during the second half of the program to meet the internship requirement. If students are unable to relocate, consider remote options with our digital program!
