Byte Academy is a New York City-based coding bootcamp that specializes in Python for software engineering, data science, full stack web development, blockchain, and more.
Students can opt to take a full-time immersive bootcamp, a remote course, a part-time course, a summer bootcamp, or a Python workshop. Byte Academy is located on the 35th floor of 295 Madison Avenue in New York City. The bootcamp also has a location in Houston, Texas. The school features rolling admissions, and courses start periodically throughout the year. Students who can’t make the in-person courses can opt to take classes online instead.
Students in need of housing are encouraged to join the cohort Discord channel to discuss options. Prior to beginning the full-length courses, students are required to complete pre-work or take the introductory Python Foundation Workshop. Once they complete either one of these pre-course options, students move on to select their program. The Python foundation course runs on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. Students in this course attend 8 sessions to graduate. The part-time Python full stack program runs for 24 weeks. Students attend classes twice per week from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM. The immersive full-time data science bootcamp runs for 14 weeks, and students attend class from Monday to Friday, 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM. The full-time Python full stack immersive course follows the same schedule as the immersive data science bootcamp. Completion time for the remote bootcamps vary, and the remote course features rolling start dates.
Byte Academy offers services that prepare students for job interviews throughout the program. The school also introduces students to potential employers in the third phase of the program and after graduation. Through the Byte Academy alumni network, students are promised career assistance services for life.
