DevBootstrap is an intensive, software developer training course, conducted full-time over 1 week and across three streams: Client Side, Server Side and Game Development. At end of the course, students will have the skills needed to hit the ground running as a skilled software developer.
The course is not going to be easy but it will be fun! On DevBootstrap you will need to work harder than you have ever before! We have expert teachers, with years of experience, to guide and assist you on your journey to becoming an expert software developer – ready to take on the world! At the end of the course, you’ll be amazed what you have achieved and what you can do.
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.
On the Game Development Stream, students will learn how to develop fully functioning games using Unity 3D. The course will start with a primer in C# and quickly move onto the Unity 3D developer application, game engine, and then a deep study of the components of game development: cameras, lighting, sound, physics, animations and so on.

Dev Bootstrap aims to give students hands on experience from the get go. Students will learn right away what it takes to build real world, production ready applications.
There is a lot to cover during the course and it won’t be easy! However, we will make sure that at every step of the way, students are comfortable with where they are at and confident to build well tested, working applications. Students must be prepared to put in a lot of energy into this course to get the best experience!
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.
