What is the difference between Codecademy Pro Intensive and Codecademy Pro?

Codecademy Pro is a great tool for learning the basics of coding, but it also allows one to develop a deeper knowledge and refine your skills to go beyond our free content. Pro comes with quizzes and projects that are otherwise not available in our free offering. Codecademy Pro provides custom paths for a specified learning experience as well as on-demand code support from our team of advisors.

Codecademy Pro Intensives are designed to immerse learners in website development and programming skills. Learners will follow structured, detailed syllabi, with a curriculum that is broken down into focused units so to organize a learning experience.

Highlights of the program entail various forms of support, access to exclusive content, and a structured curriculum holding one accountable and ensuring you meet your deadlines.

Included in Codecademy Pro Intensives:

    • Detailed syllabi and curriculum are broken down into clearly divided units designed to break up your learning experience evenly.
    • Access to Slack chat rooms, with peers who are learning the same material.
      • There are 3 chat rooms to jump into:
        1. #online_now Check in each day as you begin your work. See who’s online, and find others to work with. This channel is supported by peers and classmates, as well as a dedicated mentor who checks in daily. We encourage you to be active on this channel.

        2. #highlights Join to stay informed. Mentors will summarize important discussions, highlight key resources, and post updates here.

        3. #resources Share great resources on the week’s material or website development in general. 

Receiving supplemental support from the community is a valuable part of Pro Intensive. On the start date of the program, we will invite you to join us in these few online chat channels.

Working with peers to understand and solve problems is often the best way to learn yourself!

Deadlines help learners develop disciplined, daily routines, which is key to acquiring a new skill.

A “what by when” structure helps learners stay on track and commit to prioritizing work, accomplishing goals and producing results.

You will submit several projects which are reviewed by our team of professionals. They will provide notes and detailed feedback on each project submitted.

Codecademy Pro Intensive not only provides the skills, challenges, resources, and strategies needed to succeed in web development and programming languages, it also opens up new possibilities for career changes, upcycling existing projects, or simply utilizing creativity differently!
