    Overview

    Viking Code School is a 16-week immersive online software engineering and job placement program. Students learn in-demand skills in the tech sector today by working with the full web development stack in a team-based immersive learning environment focused on turning students into world class web developers. Participants work closely with instructors and teammates to learn the fundamentals of software engineering and the modern web development stack, mastering new technologies and solving complex problems. Daily group project-building tasks allow students to build a portfolio of deployed applications and the skills to take on production-scale challenges in a career as a developer. Instructors and mentors offer guidance and support throughout the program with tech talks, group demos, 1-on-1 sessions, pairing help, and code reviews, keeping an emphasis on constant collaboration and pair programming.

    In addition to the core programming curriculum, the course offers daily training in self-marketing skills to ensure participants find the job they want, and comfortably ace the technical interview process. The program finishes with a no-holds-barred hiring bootcamp and Demo Day, with the opportunity to present projects to interested employers.

    Cohorts run for 16 weeks plus a 1-week break in the middle. Admissions are done on a rolling basis until the cohort fills up. Preparation takes 4-8 weeks. The program does not charge for tuition, but offers a deferred fee model where participants pay a fee which is 18% of their first year's salary.
