The instructors commitment was outstanding. They made themselves available at all hours for consulting and support. Since graduating, I have been able to use my coding skills to automate processes at my current job. The bootcamp is worth it regardless if you want to be a programmer or just better understand how to deal with engineers.
“As with any program or course that lasts only 10 weeks, be prepared to challenged in a BIG way. Erty, the lead instructor, and Sarah, the assistant instructor, do an impeccable job of teaching the important basics of the MEAN stack. They stay after-hours to help get you to a point of understanding material that may not have sunk in during class.”
“Previous classes that I’ve taken have only taught syntax, and I already knew much of that from free online classes. The school taught me more than just coding, however. I learned how to work on a development team, how to structure code properly, and how to develop a minimal viable product in a short amount of time. The small class size made it very easy for the teachers to help with any questions the rest of the class and I had.”
“I came in to this cohort with more of a creative background and wasn’t sure if my brain was going to absorb seemingly complex programming languages. I was pleasantly surprised by the instructor’s conscious teaching approach, directing his explanations to both the math-minded and the visual-creatives, like myself. It takes a special gift to switch from a technical expanation to a visual explanation so quickly.”
“Not only do they directly teach the hard skills you need, they teach you how to teach yourself, which is so important in the ever-changing world of technology. It’s a great fast-paced curriculum, and they support you in rapid-learning.”
This is an intensive, full-time, 12-week bootcamp designed to prepare you to be a junior web developer! The first two weeks are an online course that you can attend from anywhere and the last 10 weeks are in-person at our campus in Boulder, Colorado. The in-person classes are held from 9am - 5pm, Monday through Friday. You should also plan on spending another 5-20 hours working on projects and additional learning during evenings and on weekends.

OVERVIEW & WHAT YOU’LL LEARN
FULL STACK DEVELOPMENT
In our industry the tools and technologies change constantly. Therefore, we’re passionate about teaching our students how to be a programmer, rather than simply mastering a particular technology or language. We teach our students how to think like an experienced programmer so they are successful in crafting elegant solutions to any application requirement, regardless of the current state of tools and technology.
DEDICATED TO OUR STUDENTS
At CodeCraft, the instructional team closely monitors every student’s progress each and every day so nobody is left behind. Students who need extra help are guided with one-on-one support. And, we have two instructors for each class and the cohorts are limited to only 20 students making them much smaller and more personalized than most bootcamps.
Our bootcamps are designed specifically for accelerated career transformation. During the program we teach you practical skills that reflect the needs of employers. Along the way you’ll be connected industry peers as you work on projects that build your portfolio. After graduation we help you create a strategy for your job search and provide you with a wealth of information on how to effectively find relevant opportunities that align with your goals. In addition, we’re always growing our network of employer partners.

With over 12-years of successfully training digital professionals, we will teach you to think like an experienced programmer so you can constantly adapt to evolving technology. Our instructors are industry experts who are passionate about what they teach, and our small class sizes allow for plenty of one-on-one time with these professionals. Throughout our program we will connect you with a variety of industry players and we will help you find your dream tech job that aligns with your unique skills and goals.

Week 6: Server-Side with Node.js & Express.js
Week 7: MongoDB & Hackathon
This week we’ll explore common databases and how they’re used when building web applications. You’ll learn about MongoDB, Mongoose.js, localized storage in HTML5, along with best practices and merits of each of these tools. We’ll also do a weekend hackathon to apply all of the skills you’ve learned!
Week 8: Singe Page Apps & Pair Programming
This week you’ll take everything that you’ve learned so far and put the pieces together to build a fully-functional Single Page App (SPA). You’ll pair program with other students, our instructors, and mentors as you develop your app.
Weeks 9 & 10: Angular.js and Vue.js
Learning a full-stack frontend framework is no easy feat, so we’ll take two weeks to introduce you to Vue.js, then Angular.js! The two frameworks are very similar: though Angular is more popular, Vue is easier to learn, and provides a great stepping stone on the way to a job with any framework.
Weeks 11 & 12: Final Projects & Demos
During the final two weeks of the program you’ll be developing your own app using all the skills and technologies you’ve learned, including deploying the app to either AWS or Heroku. While our instructors and mentors will be available, you’ll be encouraged to troubleshoot and solve any challenges that arise in order to be fully prepared for your first job.
