Do I need to complete Coding Basics Experience?

Already confident in your coding skills? Then Coding Basics Experience is not necessary. But you're still welcome to join!

No, it is completely optional. We facilitate these learning opportunities to help you succeed at the Coding Assessments. However, you can learn using any resources, or skip Coding Basics Experience completely.

šŸ‘ØšŸ»ā€šŸ’» How do I know whether Coding Basics Experience is for me?

Great question! By visiting the Coding Basics Experience (hosted in Gather), you are not committing to doing any amount of work or investing any amount of time. That means you can visit, determine if it's useful to you, and make a decision from there.

We like to break down the potential value you could gain from Coding Basics based on your prior coding exposure:

šŸ£ I'm pretty new to coding

Fantastic! If you have some, little, or even no previous experience coding at all, then I am happy to say that Coding Basics Experience was designed specifically for you šŸ’œ

šŸ„ I know some coding, but I'm not an expert

Awesome! Try popping in and, depending on your current skills and knowledge, start working from a level or topic that challenges you (instead of starting at level 1 if it's too easy).

If you can make it to the finishing line, then you have ample skills to carry you through the Coding Challenges and beyond.

šŸ“ I'm good at coding

Even if you're highly skilled, Coding Basics Experience facilitates human connection. You can enjoy meeting applicants and Sigma School alumni to help you decide whether Sigma School is a good path for you.
