Select a Program

Most bootcamps run a Full Stack Software Developer program, but we found that it's better to specialize in either Front End or Back End. Because of this, we offer two separate, full-length programs - one for each stack. This way, students spend more time mastering their selected track and becoming strong candidates for a role in development.

Upcoming Start Dates:

Back End Program 7/20
Front End Program 8/17

Back End Software Developers are in charge of building applications that do the behind-the-scenes work. This typically involves receiving requests from a Front End application, processing the request, reading and writing to a database, and responding back to requests from other applications.

 

In this 18-week, Back End Software Development program, students take three courses to learn the skills and technologies necessary to enter the industry as a Back End Software Developer: Introduction to Java, Relational Databases with MySQL, and Web API Design with Spring Boot.

 

Skills and technologies learned include Java 1.8, Algorithms, OOP, Design Patterns, Unit Testing, SQL, DDL, DML, Database Concepts, JDBC, Spring Boot, Spring Data, REST, JPA, JWT, AWS, and more.

Front End Software Developers build the pieces of applications and websites that users see and interact with. This involves creating components that look good and provide functionality when a user interacts with them. It also involves interacting with the Back End applications and displaying data in an aesthetically pleasing manner.

In the 18-week, Front End Software Development program, students take three courses to learn the skills and technologies necessary to enter the industry as a Front End Software Developer: Introduction to JavaScript, Front End Technologies, and Web App Design with React.
 

Skills and technologies learned include JavaScript, Algorithms, OOP, Design Patterns, Unit Testing, HTML, CSS, JQuery, Bootstrap, AJAX, React, JSX, REST, NPM, AWS, and more.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS THE DAILY STRUCTURE OF THIS 18 WEEK BOOTCAMP?


Students meet for class once a week on a weekday evening 7:00-8:30 CST. Students start each academic week on Sunday and are required to watch all videos and start working on assignments/projects before coming to class on Wednesday to be prepared.




WHY DO STUDENTS START ASSIGNMENTS BEFORE THEY MEET FOR CLASS?


We have students start reviewing curriculum and working on weekly assignments three days before class as part of our two-point learning process. The two sections of our learning process are "learn" and "solidify". We have students start the learning process by reviewing the curriculum and starting assignments before class. That way, when they come to class they are already familiar with the concepts and the instructor can start the second phase by ensuring they practice and understand what they are learning, or have already learned. Studies show that a flipped educational model, such as this, help students learn quicker and retain more information.




IS THE COURSE INSTRUCTOR-LED? WHAT IS THE BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE OF YOUR INSTRUCTORS?


Yes, the course is instructor led by experienced software engineers who have teaching and training experience.
