FAQ

1. What is a Full Stack?

Full-stack refers to a developer’s ability to work across the front-end/client-side, back-end/server-side, database, and DevOps areas of code. It is normal to have an emphasis on one of the areas, but you can generally understand and work on these parts of the projects.

2. Is it realistic to learn so many languages so fast?

Coding languages follow the same concepts. Once you understand the underlying programming concepts, you can use them in different languages. When you start learning these different languages, you will find that they have different strengths and weaknesses, and one language may help you better understand another.

3. What if I don’t get a job?

Getting a job is not guaranteed, but good professionals are in high demand, and this experience will highlight you to your future employers and distinguish you from your competition. In the end, every person must work for and earn a job themselves, but we will be on your team as you search for your next job. You will benefit from the BuildUp network which includes your teammates, cohorts, alumni, tutors, deans, mentors, business partners, and more. In short, you will have a much better chance after you BuildUp!

4. How many people are going to be in my class? If I have a question will the instructor be able to answer?

Your class structure is such that there will be a focus on peer-to-peer learning. This means that you should prioritize learning with your teammates and classmates; this may include you asking for their help, helping them, or learning something new together. To assist you in the cases you will need, there will be office hours to speak with your programs’ tutor, dean, and mentor. 

5. I can’t pay during the program, what are my options to defer payment?

You won’t have to pay in advance. Instead, you will be sponsored by our generous partners and will start making monthly payments after you will find your next job. Please refer to BuildUp’s payment plan for details.

6. What happens if it’s too difficult for me and I have to drop out?

The program is very competitive to join. Those who do will need the skills to perform their function on a lean, cross-functional team where they will be the only ones with their knowhow to guide the team in that regard and do all the work. BuildUp’s front-end focused full-stack developers will be responsible for building most (if not all) of the front-end of the project as well as much of the back end.

7. Where are the Coding Boot Camp classes held?

The lectures will be live, online sessions that you will regularly attend with your classmates. Then you will meet in person with your teammates to collaborate on your project. 

8. Can I keep working while studying in the program?

The program is very demanding and will require many hours of your work for lectures and other learning as well as a team and individual work. But you still can work as you will need to devote time to this mostly after work.

9. How much does it cost?

The beauty of BuildUp is that no payment is required at the beginning. However, you will be required to pay 1700$ USD eventually. We offer a special agreement called an ISA (Income Sharing Agreement), which means that you don't owe a payment when accepted, but once your salary reaches a specific level, you will be required to come back to our community, became part of it, and pay it forward in the form of 100$ USD dollars per month for 17 continuous months. Please note these terms may change in the future.
