• Is Intro to Ruby really free?

    Yes, our Intro to Ruby course does not require any credit card information and does not have a time limit. You’ll begin learning to code alongside a community of fellow students and have full access to 30+ hours of Ruby lessons and labs – as well as on-demand support from our Technical Coaches.

  • Do I need to finish all of Intro to Ruby to apply to Flatiron School?

    While making progress in our free courses is the best way to strengthen your application to our Online Web Developer Program and NYC Software Engineering Immersive, finishing the full Intro to Ruby course is not required to apply. This free course is meant to help you gauge whether you want to pursue a lifelong programming career, and whether you can successfully learn to code through our teaching techniques and technology.

    Our admissions team primarily wants to see consistency in how you’re preparing. You’re encouraged to apply for our Online Web Developer Program or NYC Software Engineering Immersive as soon as you feel ready to commit your time and energy to an immersive program. (Note: It’s important to understand that your initial application and interview is a way to for us to get to know you and for you to get to know us, and includes no technical questions.)
