About our Coding Bootcamp

Our web developer bootcamp takes you from being an amateur to a professional web developer in four intensive weeks. Most of the time will be in coding with fanatic support to provide you feedback in a timely manner. By the end of the course, you will be able to create a fully functional website using all the latest technologies.  Whether you are planning on changing your career from a non-technical field to an IT field or whether you are a recent graduate looking to get hands-on coding experience or whether you are looking to set-up a web-based start-up, this course is ideal for you.

We cover skills for front-end, back-end and a programming language.  Upon successful completion of the course, not only will you be easily able to create web sites but also build web based applications and integrate with databases. We cover concepts as applied in the real-world and teach you all the best practices that make for a good web programmer. Usually in large scale projects, it is common to have people that are separated by functional knowledge such as a designer, a database engineer, a programmer etc. Throughout this course, we try to make you good at all these roles.

This program is not for the faint hearted because you will be learning at a high intensity fast paced environment. What people take a year to learn in college will be learnt in a month. You are likely to be spending close to 10 hours each day with 75% of the time in coding. By the end of it, your skills will be at a much higher level than a computer science student passing out of college.

The one month web programming boot camp is done in small groups so that the instructor can provide close attention to each individual. Participants will also have remote support after class. There will be an optional coding test at the end of each week to test how far you have come and determine if any extra after class coaching is needed. Many of our participants attend our programming workshop as an alternative to attending a year of two in a college.

At the end of the program, you will have an opportunity to showcase what you have learnt through a demo. You will be required to work on a project of your choosing and need to complete this project for the demo. We will invite people from the industry to this demo and this will be give you an opportunity to network and showcase your skills.

In case you want to continue on the learning path, you can complete Ruby on Rails with us.

Course Outline

Introduction to becoming a Web Developer

This module is focused on the fundamentals of web development. The module provides an overview of all the technologies available and the strengths and weaknesses of each technology. Participants will be setting up their development environment on their laptops. All the software used during the program is open source and as such can be easily downloaded.

HTML, CSS

This module introduces you to the front-end world of web programming. HTML is the foundational framework for all modern websites. This module will teach you to hand-code a website using the best practices of HTML. Ever wonder what some website look really good and some bland? This is the work of CSS or cascading style sheets. All the styles and effects that you see on a website is usually attributed to CSS. This module covers knowledge to create and implement a CSS to make your website look very good.

jQuery and jQueryUI

jQuery is a powerful and popular JavaScript library. This makes a web site come alive. Participants will be able to create rich interactions to enhance a user’s experience. Participants will learn to add animated effects to elements on their website using events, functions and methods. This module also covers AJAX to a reasonable level.

Databases, MySQL

A professional web developer is expected to be well versed in creating websites that integrate with a database. This module covers skills required to create your own database using MySQL Workbench. Participants will learn to create ERD diagrams and port them to create schemas. By the end of this module, participants will be able to write complex queries that can connect, retrieve, insert and manipulate data in the database.

PHP

PHP is the main programming language for building dynamic websites. Participants will learn how to code using PHP. This module is technical in nature and teaches participants programming skills. PHP stands for Hypertext preprocessor and is the most widely used programming language for websites. Did you know Facebook was written in PHP? PHP is a server-side scripting language and can be easily embedded within HTML pages. Once you become good at a programming language such as PHP, you can learn other languages such as Ruby or Python which we think is too much to cover in the short time period and hence is out of scope (Ruby, Python).

Frameworks and Plugins

The most important aspect of applications development is code re usability and efficiency. Working in teams means having to sync each others' work and ensure the application can scale up in terms of features. In this module, we introduce you to the MVC framework. In addition, you will also learn frameworks for web design such as twitter bootstrap, wordpress etc.,

Ruby on Rails (Additional 3 weeks)

Ruby on Rails is a technology centered around elegant web development. This would complement your PHP learning and can be a great successor to completion of your PHP training. Before you can learn Ruby, we want you to be comfortable in PHP.

Frequently Asked Questions

We will start the day with a brief lecture about a relevant concept followed by a demonstration. Participants will then be provided with an exercise and instructions of how to go about. Participants will then need to complete the exercises by following the videos provided or referring to any resources including the internet. If a participant is unable to determine a solution after 15 minutes of struggling, a facilitator will guide the participant through. Facilitators are available throughout the duration. Our intention is to get you to practice coding as much as possible and learn through mistakes. By the end of the evening participants are expected to submit the code for review to our remote facilitators who will provide detailed recorded feedback within the next day. This cycle continues each day. At the end of the week, participants will take an optional time-boxed live coding exam.

Yes, absolutely. The only two essentials requirements are that you should be passionate and perseverant. Many of our participants have not written a single line of code before attending our boot camp. With the two essential qualities, they have gone on to become very good professional web developers.

Learning at a University could take anywhere from a year to 3 years and most of it is academic theoretical stuff which gain points only with the professors. By the end of it, you may not even be able to create simple database driven website. A university education makes sense when you are not sure of the career options. For example, if you believe that you could get into robotics or hardware or cryptography, then a university education makes sense because it is broader in scope. But if your interest is in just web development, a university education is way too much of a wasted time.

Our participants come from diverse backgrounds. We have had participants who are doctors, lawyers, housewives, taxi drivers, students, accountants, managers, engineers etc. Diversity makes the class very interesting and fun. Recently we had an accountant who after completing the course went to create a successful web based start-up in the food industry. We also get many participants from different countries.

The course is not very difficult but it is intensive. There are concepts which you may find very difficult and concepts that you cruise through. We believe that the best way to learn something is to struggle at first. If you are good at a particular concept, we expect you to help other students and when you are struggling with a concept, seek help from another student. In addition, our friendly facilitators are constantly available during and even after class for any additional support.

Not recommended. The bootcamp follows a sequence which will be affected if you miss a single day of class. However, if you are able to complete the assignment for the day from home then you will be able to take day/days off. During the program duration, we recommend that you stay away from any possible distractions. You will need to be completely immersed in the world of web development.

Yes. We expect you to complete around 40 hours of pre course work before attending the class. We will tell you what you need to study and practice. We will also provide you with the resources needed for preparation.

For MAC users, intall MAMP, For Windows users, intall WAMP. In addition, participants will need to download and install MySQL Workbench and Sublime text editor.

All participants are accepted to the class after an interview over phone. This interview is essential because we need to understand your background and current skills. This will also help in determining whether our course is suitable for you. Since it is a significant investment in time and effort on your part, we want to ensure that our participants take away valuable knowledge and skills. As such we do an interview to assess your success probability. In case you are not accepted for a class, it could be because a class is full or the course may not be the right choice for you.

After you complete the online sign up form, we will schedule a phone interview with one of our facilitators. Following the phone interview, you will be informed if you are accepted into the class.

In case you are unemployed or in between jobs or a student, you get special discounted rates on the published price. Call us for more details.
