Can I graduate without a coding partner?

Do you want to join as a "solo" student, without pair programming and collaboration elements?

Yes, you can. We do not make it compulsory for each student to graduate only if you have coding partners. You graduate if you’re able to solve the assignments and capstone projects. It’s as simple as that.

Take note though, that our whole learning methodology is based on peer dynamics. We believe that in order to become a great software developer, you should not only learn how to write high-quality code but also, soft skills, like how to:

Teach to and learn from fellow developers
Collaborate well with a diverse set of people
Listen to others and respond appropriately
Communicate your ideas in an effective manner
Connect with future colleagues and employees
Practice good manners
Mentor and get mentorship from others
Negotiate compromises in working styles and ideas
Give constructive criticism
Maintain professionalism every day

As a student in the Program, you will learn each of these things by working with your coding partners. Our goal is to help you become great software developers AND well-rounded employees/coworkers/mentors as well.
