Curriculum

You will learn something new every day. You will write code every day. Everything that is included in the curriculum is relevant and important to starting a career in web development. Industry experts have created an integrated curriculum that leads you through the theory but more importantly the practice. You will work individually, in pairs and in small teams to solve problems, crack the code and build real world web applications. You will work much harder and for much longer than you think.

Completion

Everything you have learned comes together in final phase of the bootcamp as you demonstrate proficiency in web development skills through an individual project and a team project. What you have learned prepares you for the first step in a career including confidence, skills and knowledge. The applications you have created build a portfolio of work that you will be proud of and able to take with you.

Careers

Embedded throughout the program are a series of career exploration related activities. The curriculum includes networking events, peer level meetups, job searching skills, resume writing and interview techniques to add to the body of web development work you have completed. A career fair as part of the final phase of the bootcamp enables you to meet with local web development agencies and employers.
