Core Technologies

On DevBootstrap we will start with the fundamentals of programming using languages Ruby, Javascript or C# (depending the stream) before moving on to the frameworks Rails, Angular JS or Unity 3D (again depending on the stream). Students will also learn about test driven development, pair programming, software versioning using Git, client demos and much more. Fasten your seat-belts – the course is totally immersive and completely hands on!
Rails

Server Side Stream: Ruby on Rails

On the Sever Side Stream, students will learn about Ruby and Rails. Rails is an incredibly popular and powerful server side technology for rapidly building prototypes and world class production ready applications. Deeply rooted in the ‘convention over configuration’ ideology and ‘Model View Controller’ pattern of building applications – Rails has quickly become a first choice framework for startups and developers the world over.

Students must be prepared to put in a lot of energy into this course to get the best experience!

Coaching

A key challenge of learning to be a developer is to know how to learn independently. Many times during a typical working day, a typical developer may get ‘stuck’ on something. Being able to quickly get out of that situation is an important skill to have. During Dev Bootstrap, students will likely get stuck more than ever and our Coaches will be there to guide the students back on track.
