Frequently Asked Questions


    How does this work?

    This is a remote programming course. It's a real class, but happening remotely. You'll have to attend to class every week. You'll have other classmates, with whom you'll create teams to work on projects together. You'll have a professor that will lecture during classes about the topics of each week. There are also mentors available all the time to help you.

    What are the requirements?

    You should know how to work with a computer (install things, use your internet browser, etc) and the very basics of programming: what is a variable, what's a simple IF statement, etc. The Codacademy Python Track is a good start for that.

    Are there any ID requirements or an age limit to participate?

    No.

    How can I contact a real human if I have any questions?

    You can write us to: questions@rmotr.com. Make sure you ask for Yoda.

    Why do you need my credit card?

    As you can imagine, there are many folks just "fooling around". We need to make sure that our students are committed and serious about the course.

    How much time this course requires?

    At least 10 hours per week. You have two classes per week (2hs each) + some solo work + projects. Aside from the classes that have a fixed schedule, you can arrange the rest of the time in whatever way works better for you (weekends, nights, mornings, etc).

    Are the classes recorded? Who can access them?

    ALL classes are recorded. They are exclusively shared with students in that class. We respect your privacy.
