How to fit the bootcamp into a busy schedule
Most weeks, these events will occur on the same day
at or around the same time slot you have chosen, giving you consistency, flexibility and visibility to plan ahead.
For instance, if these time slots occur in the middle of your work day, you can block out 9-10 AM PT or 8-9 PM EDT and request your manager and colleagues not to book meetings with you during this hour.
The bootcamp also includes project work and theory lessons
—you can do them whenever your schedule permits
(before work, after work, on weekends, etc.). These components do have deadlines
, but they're very well-spaced and generous so as to take the pressure off you.
