What You’ll Learn and Build in 12 Weeks
Dive into what you’ll learn in our Intermediate Coding Bootcamp. Before you begin, you’ll brush up on the basics with our precourse curriculum so you’re ready on the first day.
- Write HTML and CSS to build working and interactive web applications
- Use a relational and non-relational database to store and retrieve data for an application
- Use REST APIs to real data to bring life to dynamic websites.
Projects: You’ll contribute to 12 projects during 2-day sprints, just like professional software engineers. You’ll work with other software engineers in pairs as you improve your technical communication and ability to research and solve unfamiliar problems. You’ll design a database, write server code, create a React application with hooks, and design a REST API.
Building on the robust knowledge learned previously, you’ll continue by exploring how to build even more complex web applications using modern software architectural methods and learning industry practice.
- Work on three Agile teams to complete features based on business requirements and design documents
- Build, deploy, and test scalable applications and architecture with backend performance tuning
- Learn how to effectively use the AI-powered tool GitHub Copilot
- Apply the latest design and technical principles to create microservices
Project: Your senior project models how you’ll work in a real-world software development team. 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. You’ll also push the limits of scaling by making performance optimizations.
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 12 weeks include:
- 1:1 coaching sessions
- Mock interviews
- Portfolio and resume building
- Professional development workshops
- Networking exercises
- Access to a broad alumni network
