UPCOMING PROGRAM DATES
Class runs from 6pm – 9pm Monday through Thursday. We offer this course in Pacific Standard Time (PST).
Dive into the world of a full-stack software engineer. These subjects represent the core knowledge and skills that are used in nearly every software engineering job.
Project: Your first project uses everything you’ve learned in the previous four weeks to build a meaningful full-stack web application. You’ll design the database, write the server code to create the responses to drive the application experience, and author the client code to render an attractive, intuitive, and responsive web application interface.
Building on the robust knowledge learned in the first module, you’ll continue by exploring how to build even more complex web applications using modern software architectural methods.
Project: Your second project models how you’ll work in a real-world software development team, utilizing the power of independent development in a collaborative environment. You and your team will use agile software development practices to individually build microservices that seamlessly work together to create a robust and scalable web application.
Combine everything from the first 12 weeks with new skills to manage large amounts of data. Then learn development, security, and operations (DevSecOps) to harness the power of the cloud.
Project: You’ve spent weeks learning how to build robust, scalable, and interesting web-based applications. Now you get to show it all off by combining cloud-native services with your own custom code. Again working as part of an agile software development effort, you’ll design and build a durable and responsive web application using a cloud platform.
At this stage, you’ll begin your job search, leaning on the many things you’ve learned from our career services team during your time in the bootcamp. We’ll be right by your side, helping you find, land, and negotiate terms for the job of your dreams.
Career services during your 19 weeks include:
Adding databases and server-side technologies to your toolkit, you can now build full-stack applications. You’ll combine your programming knowledge and front-end experience with Next.js, MongoDB, and PostgreSQL to build dynamic, data-driven applications like the kind you use every day. You can create your own APIs to build whatever you can dream.
As you prepare to go live with your full-stack application, you’ll learn best practices to simplify and personalize your app. You’ll start using an object-relational mapping system to help reduce the effort to interact with your application’s database. Then, you’ll incorporate authentication and authorization to allow people to use social sites to log into your application. You’ll learn the ins and outs of Agile software development, then build your own personal project.
You’ll start getting ready for your job search. Then, you’ll collaborate with your fellow programmers to emulate the day-to-day work of a software engineer and learn about project management, group dynamics and collaboration, product design, software architecture design, and production-level systems. You round out the last module with a final week of intense job search preparedness.
