What level of programming experience do I need to join Sigma School?

Read this article to learn whether your programming experience is suitable to join the Sigma School’s Complete Software Development Programme

To avoid making subjective decisions, we have created a list of more objective experience levels. 

Level 0: I have no experience coding
Level 1: I have completed some basic tutorials and courses

If you are in Level 0 or Level 1, you'll likely need a bit more practice before taking on the technical challenges in our application process. Don't worry, though; we're here to help you! You can choose to go through the Coding Basics Experience where you'll learn alongside other applicants, as well as, in coordinated sessions within the Coding Basics Experience. These resources provide a great introduction to HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Git and help you pass our technical challenges.

Level 2: I'm comfortable building simple algorithms and applications
Level 3: I have built and deployed applications used by real users in production

If you are in Level 2 - 3, you are already a great fit for Sigma School! You should try our Assessments right after signing up.

Level 4: I'm a professional software developer, but I want to improve my skills

If you are in Level 4, then we still think that you could greatly benefit from our program. However, you must know that, regardless of how much experience you already have, you will still have to go through our entire curriculum to graduate from the programme.

Level 5: I'm a professional software developer and I just want a remote job

The school will probably not be the right fit for you. You can get in touch with us! We will still try to match you to our recruitment partners. However, full priority goes to all our students first.
