Question 8. What happens if I miss a class?

Our program is designed to be fast-paced and intense. We want you to be successful and see you achieve your goal of learning code. Therefore, it is critical to maintain a good attendance record. If you must be absent, we will do what we can to help you catch up. However, it will require that you commit time outside of class to learn the material covered during your absence. Every absence will put you behind the class. So, it is highly encouraged that you do not miss any classes.
