What browser should I be using?
Our recommended browser is the latest version of Google Chrome; that is what we use in our programme examples. All other standard-compliant browsers, including Mozilla Firefox and Microsoft Edge should work in the same way, but we would only be providing support with issues on Chrome, so using any other browser is at the student's discretion.
What type of computing environment do I need for this course?
You need to have a computer running one of the following operating systems: Microsoft Windows, version XP or greater (XP, Windows Vista, or Windows 7); Apple OSX, version 10.2 or greater; Linux, most distributions that have been released within the past two years should work.
Can I meet other students in the program?
You can connect with other students through our Slack community, but we will not specifically organize any events or ask you to participate with others in the programme.
Are there additional resources covering soft skills?
Yes, we have tons of great text and video content on our blog: https://www.codeinstitute.net/blog/
What is the format of the program?
The program consists of video lectures, which are broken into small chunks, that feature instructors, along with occasional 'guest lecture' videos featuring industry experts on coding. The content also includes self paced projects. Throughout the programme you'll also find questions that test your comprehension. You can proceed through all of this material at your own pace.
I find it hard to troubleshoot issues with my code, do you have any suggestions?
