Learn Programming Without Quitting Your Job
Does this sound like you?
You're interested in learning to code but can't quit your job right now. Maybe you've tried online learning and want something more hands-on and collaborative. Maybe you're worried you're not quite ready for a full-time software development program.
Join us at Turing Second Shift and learn to code or improve your coding skills from the very first session.
What is Second Shift?
Turing Second Shift is a 6-week evening class that will take place Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6-9pm, from January 24th to March 2nd at Turing School of Software & Design.
Why would I sign up for Second Shift?
Depending on what you want out of it and where your skills are, Second Shift could be:
- an opportunity to ramp up your skills in preparation for Turing's full time program
- a stand-alone program you can use to build your coding skill set for your current job
- a way to see if computer programming is the right fit for you
- a chance to learn new skills and meet new people in a collaborative, interactive environment
What will I learn?
When you finish the six-week course, you'll be able to:
- Understand fundamental Ruby syntax
- Decompose complex technical challenges into a series of smaller problems.
- Build software using automated tests, pseudocode, implementation code, and refactoring.
Do I need any programming experience?
No programming experience is required to participate. You must have basic computer skills, as we will not be teaching basic computer use (using the mouse, typing, navigating windows, etc.)
Are there admission requirements?
You do not need to submit an application to attend Second Shift, just sign up below. You must be at least 18 years old when the first session begins on January 24th.
How much does it cost?
Second Shift tuition is $500. If you complete the program and decide to enroll in Turing as a full time student, $500 will be credited to your tuition (this offer cannot be combined with Try Turing discounts). Limited scholarships are available and based on need.
