 BOOTCAMP Schedule

Our part-time program meets Monday and Wednesday evenings and on Saturday mornings.

MODULE 1

Intro to Programming and Front-end Development

Learn the fundamentals of Coding using C++ and extend those fundamentals to Object Oriented Programming which will help you develop the basic skills necessary to keep pace in a technologically changing world.

MODULE 2

Front-end Development and Server-side programming

Learn the fundamentals of JavaScript, programming, and basic algorithms. Build web pages with HTML, style them with CSS, and make them interactive. At the end of this module, you are required to build your own client-side app. Then build and deploy dynamic server-side web applications and learn how to manage databases using MySQL. At the end of this module, you and a team of classmates are required to create a server-side application using agile workflow.

MODULE 3

Data Structures, Algorithms and Interview Prep

Explore how to tackle more complex algorithms such as sorting and searching, and learn how to calculate the Big O notation of functions and work on tree and graph traversal. Then, practice demonstrating them on a whiteboard – an essential skill for most technical interviews.

FINAL PROJECT

A capstone project that demonstrates the full range of your skills and versatility to employers is your final assignment. Capstone projects combine course topics and any technologies you choose to learn and apply outside of the classroom to best position yourself for your goals.
