How does the program work?
ALC 2.0 is split into two ‘tracks’ based on level of experience.
The beginner track is for candidates with no prior programming experience. It starts from the absolute beginning and provides candidates the option to learn how to develop apps, build websites, and/or build technology products. The intermediate track is for candidates who have 1-2 years prior programming experience on Android, web development, or product design.
ALC is powered by self-learning, but the program features peer-learning groups through online and physical community meetups.
The program is delivered through an online Udacity course. It features learning content from Google and small group learning programs organized and run by Andela. Andela provides offline content for learners with limited internet access at meetups.
