The Grace Hopper Program offers live instruction and support compared to many other online resources. There are a number of great online learning-resources available, and we encourage you to explore them. Completing an online tutorial is a great way to sample your own interest in programming. However, self-driven learning can be difficult: i.e. if you become stuck, you lose momentum, you don’t establish a consistent regimen, etc.
If you've done Codecademy, Code School, or TeamTreehouse and are looking to take your programming career to the next level, apply to Grace Hopper!
