Additional information about the camp

In order to learn the material quickly, it is expected that you will spend approximately 30 hours per week watching and reading the instructional material, researching concepts, practicing skills, and working with your group.

The camps are asynchronous meaning you can complete the material on your schedule. However, there are due dates weekly so you need to carve out the 30 hours each week starting on Monday and ending on Sunday. There will be optional synchronous office hours to assist you in your learning and optional synchronous panels with industry professionals, educational leaders, and IT experts.
