What is the pre-course?

The pre-course is a 4-week long online course that makes sure that people joining the on-site course have the same level of knowledge and that they can work on coding challenges in a group.

The pre-course is a one month, part-time course(about 25 hours/week) to prepare you for the full time onsite course at Makers. You'll take the pre-course in the four weeks leading up to your onsite start date and will need to commit approximately 20 hours per week to the course although it may be slightly more or slightly less depending on your learning style. 

You'll study online at home and learn the basics of Command Line and Git for a week, followed by 3 challenges in Ruby. This will allow us to dive straight into code on your first day on the full-time course.
