React Native is a modern MVC framework for building native mobile applications and is powered by Facebook. In our opinion, its a perfect tool for building native mobile applciations and as a client side companion to Rails.
Unity 3D is a popular gaming engine. Its solid foundation, rich API and easy deployment to multiple platforms make it an obvious choice for game development. DevBootstrap firmly believes in the future of gaming development on the Unity 3D platform!
In addition to the above, there will be several real world projects to choose from (or bring your own!) and build in either Rails, Angular JS or a combination of the two (Rails REST API + Angular JS Client). The actual projects vary between each iteration of Dev Bootstrap but, in reality, can be anything as long as it demonstrates and exercises (almost) all of the skills learnt at Dev Bootstrap.
To become a competent, expert programmer can take many years (some say up to 10 years or more!). What DevBootstrap aims to do is kick start that journey. Some of the steepest learning curves of programming are at the beginning and that’s why with DevBootstrap we are there to level out those curves and get you confident and running in no time. To put it simply you will be ready to work and have a head start in your career. When you land your first job you will keep learning and gaining experience for many years to come (in fact for the lifetime of your career probably!)
In short – right now! In reality, once you have a reserved place on DevBootstrap and you have secured funding you need to start 3 weeks before the on site training starts. During this phase, coaches will send you exercises via email and be available on chat, email and phone for any assistance. The idea is that you come prepared when the Dev Bootstrap program starts.

At DevBootstrap we like to immerse the students in what they are doing. That’s why we keep the lecture time to an absolute minimum and the hands on, building time to the max! Right from the start, you’ll begin coding in Ruby and then in no time at all you’ll be building applications in Rails. Note also that even though class time is scheduled at 40 hours per week, you’ll be working more like 60 or even 70 hours per week!
