Ada Build Live is an 8-week virtual series led by staff and volunteers who review the Ada Build curriculum with students to build comfort with Python and coding fundamentals. This series takes place in the winter, spring, summer and fall.
Please note that this program is for women and gender-expansive adults who identify as Black, Latine, Indigenous, Pacific Islander, and Native Hawaiian.
Once you finish the Ada Build curriculum, give our practice test a try. This practice test will show you what the Technical Coding Challenge will look like should you advance to that stage. This practice test will only be available for a limited time before the next application cycle opens.
Please make sure to read all instructions before beginning your practice test.
