In just three weeks, learn how to code.

Learn Coding Skills 

Students will learn by doing. This is not a memorization course. You'll write a lot of code, sometimes small programs to establish a concept, and sometimes larger programs like working with APIs, text mining projects, and DataFrames with pandas and basic analytics.

Earn Four Credits

Complete the three-week program and receive four credits that count toward your Boston College graduation requirements and can be applied to a Carroll School minor in General Business.

Hear from Experts

In addition to several hours of hands-on coding experience each day, you'll hear from guest speakers and go on site visits designed to provide insight into how coding skills provide value for professionals and companies.
