The Opportunity

There is no better time than now to jump into the world of software development!  As the world becomes increasingly reliant on technology, the demand for programming skills is at an all-time high. Our grads see an average increase in salary of $15,000 in their first job after graduation, and salaries only continue to grow from there.  This program teaches the most widely used programming language in the world – JavaScript.  Companies big and small, including Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, and Netflix all use JavaScript to power parts of their web applications.

Program Benefits

In addition to learning in-demand skills, our graduates are job-ready upon graduation with the assistance of our Career Services team.  While in class, our students learn about the tech industry, career pathways, the job market, and the job search process, and receive a customized job search strategy and unlimited 1:1 career coaching.  Alongside technical instruction and Career Services, students develop their interpersonal skills through collaboration, where they work on a real-world project with a real company that further enhances their experience in speaking the industry language and building the skills necessary to effectively contribute to a team.  Network weekly with guest speakers from the tech industry where we hear from different software developers, web designers, and development managers. See what code looks like in real technical environments, and discuss interviewing techniques, career pathways, and much more.

What You Will Learn

Over the course of 12 weeks, you will learn how to build, test, and deploy software applications using JavaScript on the client- and server-side of an application (front-end + back-end).  Starting with fundamentals, you will quickly move into more complex programming concepts that are solidified through challenges, such as pair programming, weekly projects, lab exercises, and code reviews.  The projects you create throughout the course will be used to build your portfolio which will serve as a showcase of your work and a valuable asset to your post-bootcamp job hunt.  You will learn how to code with JavaScript, web design, responsive layout, client-side programming, server-side programming, React apps, and databases, plus several professional and soft skills from collaborating with teams and working with Career Services.
