Your typical day at App Academy

With a deep understanding gained from over five years and more than 3,800 graduates from our in-person program, we carefully designed our online program to give you the same experience and, most importantly, the same successful outcome.

Lecture

Every morning, you and your classmates will watch short lectures and demos discussing both theoretical and practical use cases. You can speed-up or slow-down the lecture and write down any questions when you have them. Lectures are followed by live Q&A sessions to answer any questions before you put those concepts into action.

8am
11am

Lunch

Take a break, eat some food, and connect with classmates. This is a great time to develop relationships with others who will be one part of your huge alumni network through App Academy.

Projects + Pair Programming

After lunch, you will pair-up with a classmate and work on collaborative projects that drive home the concepts from the morning’s lecture. Working with others is something you’ll do almost all the time in software development, so learning to adapt to different people on different projects is very important. It also helps to talk through problems with one another, work as a team, and find solutions together.

12pm
4pm

Group Review

You spent the day working through different projects to master key concepts. Now, reflect on what you just accomplished by talking about it with your classmates in a group setting. Share what you did during the day. Find out how others did things differently. Gain a wider perspective on the material by synthesizing experiences with your classmates.

Homework

Now, it’s time to get ready for the next day. You will spend an hour or so going through preparatory material for the following day’s class. You’ll get exposed to the important ideas, sleep on it, and return the next morning to take one more step toward software programming mastery.
