Moringa Core is our full-time 15 week program where our engineers choose either a Full Stack or Mobile development track. Our full-time courses run (officially) 5 days per week, 11 hours a day, though most students work much more than that.
We use a blended learning model, and have students pair programming or working in groups throughout almost the entire course. This teaches autonomy and teamwork: two of the most important skills of holistic developers.
