Frequently Asked Questions.

Can't find what you are looking for? Try these FAQs or send us a message here.

What am I paying for?

You are paying for the coaching sessions with a software developer who will provide feedback and guidance on your journey to become a software developer yourself, as well as Get Coding to keep track of the local trends and career guidance.

How do I get into Phase II?

Just because you're admitted to join Phase I of the program doesn't mean you'll definitely be invited to join the Phase II. After the Phase I, the Get Coding team will review your experience and performance. If you enjoy the structure of Get Coding, and we are satisfied with your performance, you will be given admission into Phase II.

How long does the program last?

It takes between 6 - 12 months, depending on how quickly you learn, how much time you spend coding each week, and what projects you come up with.

Are there any technical prerequisites? 

Not really. We look for general technical aptitude and commitment to switching your career.

Does everyone get into the program?

We reserve the right to refuse entry to our program to anyone. You may not get into the program if you are not fully committed to switching your career, or have shown poor technical aptitude.

What are your admission criteria? 

We look for people who are genuinely committed to switching careers and becoming software developers. Plus, it's good to have a good grasp of the local and global tech scenes. We'll put your commitment to the test through our Admission Project and evaluate your answers during the laid-back Admission Interview.

What is the time commitment? 

You need to have a minimum commitment of 15 hours per week to code in order to see tangible results. However, you have the flexibility to pause or discontinue your journey at any time, as there is no long-term commitment required.

Is there a certificate or diploma on the end of the program?

We don't value certificates as an accurate measure of technical skills, and we encourage you not to rely on them either. Instead, our emphasis is on helping you build an impressive portfolio of real-life projects that will truly impress others.

Do you have another question?

Send us a message here and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

What if I need or want to withdraw from the program?

You can stop at any time.

There are couple things to note. Once you stop, your spot in the program will not be reserved and we do not provide refunds.
