Learning to code is not easy! If it was we would all be developers making good money working for Netflix and have UNLIMITED vacation days. While learning to code is not easy it can be made easier. This coding bootcamp attempts to do just that! I have decided to help career changers think and learn like a developer. This is my version of a book on 'how to become a developer'. And guess what? It's interactive!Apply Today
You will not only learn how to create web applications like a simple social network site but you will learn it with the technologies and tech stacks that employers want! There are no books, slides or a rigid curriculum. Instead you will learn the way most developers learn...the web!Download Class Syllabus
Hi I am Avan. I a software developer, coding tutor, mentor and teacher. I have a computer science degree, went through a paid coding bootcamp and worked as a Java developer for about 2 years. I consider myself a senior entry-level developer. I am also an amateur Fifa player.More Info
We code to impress. You will create portfolio ready items that you can show off to employers. I will even offer a free monthly career meeting to go over your resume, GitHub (a locker for your code), online presence etc.
No woman will be left behind. The coding bootcamp is meant for people who have never coded before and based on the philosohphy that we are only as strong as our 'weakest' link.
I graduated from a software engineering bootcamp which was great, but since it was my first time learning coding, it was difficult to remember all the terms and really grasp everything since it was so quick. Taking Avan’s bootcamp was AMAZING because he never judged and never made me feel like I asked a “stupid” question. He was super patient with all of us and definitely explained everything in a way that was simple for us to learn. He provided great examples of everything he taught us and never left us hanging if we had questions. He also didn’t give us the answer, he would help us reach the answer, which for me is the best way to learn!! Loved this and would definitely take the bootcamp again!!
Great at teaching such a broad range of both front-end and back-end development topics in a very simplified and easy-to-follow way. I highly recommend the cohort but only if you have the time to devote to it—a lot of material is covered in just a few months.
I have been attempting to learn programming for years on and off. After going through FCB I am so happy I made the decision to invest the time with the cohort. The format was informal but effective at exposing the class to new concepts and ultimately creating projects with what we were learning. Going from complete beginner was challenging and there were days I felt completely lost but the constant practice and ability to have peers and Avan as a resource was invaluable.
Job prospects for web developers should continue to be favorable through to 2024 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. There were 148,500 positions in 2014. This figure should grow by 27% by 2024 to about 188,000 positions. This growth rate is higher than other computer occupations, which is 12%. And when looking at all jobs across the U.S., the figure is only 7%. All of this considered, it is very lucrative to be a web developer.
Coding bootcamps are sort like podcasts. In the sense that there seems to be a google amount of them! And just like with podcasts, some are 'better' than others. So how do you pick which one to choose? I personally like a bootcamp that helps you achieve your most important goal. For most that is getting hired as a developer! That is why I recommend General Assembly as a coding bootcamp. They are just great! They have built a huge network of employers that hire from them. That in itself is worth the $10,000+ you pay them in my opinion. However $10k and attending a bootcamp full-time does not work for some people. This is where my bootcamp comes in. You can learn in-demand web-development skills for well...nothing and you can attend it part-time. So instead of having to commit 50+ a week you can get away with just 20 hours a week.
Additionally, this bootcamp is nothing like any other bootcamp or coding class out there. It feels more like a one-on-one tutoring session than a class. It's very personal, the small co-hort size helps with that, and most teaching is just practical rather than theoretical. I apply a do first learn later approach. There are no slides or books, just a coder (me), google, W3 Schools and the best amongst the rest of web. You will learn how to develop software, web-sites and web-apps the way most awesome developers have done it before you...using the best of the web.
You will be a better developer than most self learners and other bootcamp students but only under condition: you are commited to this and truly want to become a great developer!Apply Today
