GDI Launches Hybrid Course (On-Demand Class + Live Instruction)

Exciting news, coders and community! Starting this August, GDI is launching hybrid classes based on your incredible feedback. This innovative approach blends pre-recorded class materials with live virtual sessions, delivering a flexible and engaging learning experience. Our goal is to make course content more accessible and provide ample opportunities for support and interaction. Get ready for a whole new level of learning with GDI!

We're constantly evolving to better serve our community. Before 2020, GDI classes were limited to in-person sessions, valuable but not accessible to all. Recognizing the need for inclusivity and flexibility, we successfully transitioned to online courses. This pivot opened up opportunities for our members worldwide, overcoming the challenges of work, transportation, and family commitments. With the support of our adaptable members, we continue to expand access to instructors, content, and networks, ensuring that everyone can benefit from GDI's offerings.

Our new hybrid classes offer the best of both worlds: the flexibility of accessing course materials anytime, anywhere, and the interactive support of live sessions. This game-changing approach allows learners to balance their multiple responsibilities while receiving the GDI style of engagement and assistance. Instructors, who are industry experts, share real-world experiences and insights, enriching the educational journey. With personalized guidance from mentors, students can overcome challenges and achieve their goals, ensuring access and support are top priorities at GDI.

How will it work?

We're excited to announce our inaugural Hybrid class, "Technical Interviewing 1: Intro to Algorithms & Problem Solving." This 5-week course consists of 12 engaging learning modules. When you register, you'll receive the first three modules and an invitation to join the course Slack channel.

The journey begins with a live session on Monday, August 14th, where we'll dive into practices, questions, and additional insights from the initial three modules. As the session concludes, you'll receive the next three modules to continue your learning. We highly value feedback from our participants, and this first cohort will play a crucial role in shaping the format, timing, accessibility, and other aspects of this hybrid model. Your input will guide us in delivering an exceptional learning experience.

Get ready for an exciting mix of traditional live courses and new hybrid offerings on our schedule! We're venturing into this virtual learning space at a steady pace, determined to deliver the best experience possible. If you have any thoughts, questions, or even a class proposal in mind, don't hesitate to reach out to me at Your input is invaluable to us as we continue to expand our offerings and support this amazing community.

Together, let's embark on a journey of growth, learning, and fun! Stay tuned for more updates and join us in shaping the future of GDI.
