"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."
"It was a great course and well taught. The part time program is great because it spreads enough time which provides time for information to sink in and for course work to be completed. It also is possible to maintain a full time job while completing the course which makes it financially possible to participate in a bootcamp. Overall, great experience and would definitely recommend!"
"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."
"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 24-week, part-time, evening schedule program is designed to prepare you for a career in web development without requiring you to quit your job and while maintaining your other commitments. The first four weeks are an online course that you can attend from anywhere and the last 20 weeks are in-person at our campus in Boulder, Colorado. In-person classes are held Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings from 6pm to 9pm and Saturdays from 9am to 5pm. You should also plan on dedicating 3-15 hours per week to homework and practicing your skills.

CURRICULUM & SCHEDULE
Servers, Databases and SQL
This week we learn about what server-side means as well as gain our first exposure to MySQL databases while learning SQL syntax. We’ll learn about how the Internet works behind the scenes and start looking at how server side code differs from client side code, particularly the use of callback functions. We’ll also begin to use the terminal almost exclusively as the starting point for our app development projects!
Terminal and Git
This week we begin to explore the use of terminal commands and how to use Git, NPM, Bower and other Terminal CLI’s (command line interfaces). We’ll begin to explore development via terminal vs. traditional development methods.
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 practice applying all of the skills you’ve learned!
This week we learn about the app development framework React, we’ll look at React both as a development philosophy and also introduce you to the basics of React as a development platform.
During the final four 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.
Upon successful completion of the program, you will be equipped with the technical skills of a junior web developer to pursue the following jobs and more:
