Course Overview

Coding Fellowship Bootcamp

An immersive and comprehensive project-driven, 16 week bootcamp course in web development. You’ll get to grips with all the technologies, tools, processes and skills you need to embark on a career as a software engineer – whilst putting together a portfolio of real world project work and making some great contacts along the way.

There is a 4-6 week part-time pre-course (60+ hours), completed flexibly in your own time before the intensive bootcamp begins. This enables our students to come fully prepared so they can make the most of the full-time 12 week intensive bootcamp element of the programme. (Currently delivered via a live, remote classroom as full-day 9:00-17:30 sessions).

All of this will put you in the perfect position to land a job as a developer straight from graduation. With a 95% hire rate we even help you make that transition by organising interviews with our hiring partners. Have a look at what our students say.

Course Details

We get a wide variety of people enrolling on the Fellowship. The one thing that ties everyone together is a clear motivation and interest in a career in tech. If you’re looking for a fast route into the industry and are willing to work hard to get there, the Fellowship is for you.

Take a look at our student testimonials to see some of the backgrounds that our students have had before joining us and where they end up after graduation.

Our immersive coding bootcamp equips you with a solid and well rounded skill base, enabling you to enter the industry immediately from graduation.

  • Create beautiful front-end components
  • Pick apart a design and build it in code
  • Solve real-world problems with programming
  • Work with, and integrate, external APIs
  • Design and build your own APIs
  • Write clean, maintainable and well tested code
  • Build complex, robust and scalable web apps
  • Work effectively as part of a development team
  • Clearly communicate complex technical problems / solutions
  • Develop a thorough logical problem solving process
  • Refine a development workflow
  • Plan, architect and build entire projects independently and as part of development teams

The web development industry moves fast, so our curriculum is crafted around giving you exposure to not only current technologies but also the concepts that underlie them. We have a dedicated member of our team who keeps the curriculum bang up to date with the latest technologies.

Week 1 & 2: HTML & CSS

The course begins with two weeks learning HTML and CSS. You’ll learn how to write modern semantic HTML and pickup the latest CSS techniques. You’ll also become familiar with using a text editor, UX fundamentals, accessibility, getting a website online, and planning and structuring the content. By the end of these two weeks you’ll be able to plan and create a beautiful website from scratch.

Week 3: Programming Fundamentals with JavaScript

This module focuses on programming fundamentals: those things which all programming languages have in common. We’ll be using JavaScript to do this, but the lessons you’ll learn will be much more widely applicable. You’ll learn about types, variables, functions, data structures, and much more. Once the week is over you’ll be able to learn new programming languages with ease.

Week 4: JavaScript in the Browser with the DOM

This module teaches you how to add interactivity to a website using JavaScript. You can do a lot with just HTML & CSS, but if you want your website to be truly interactive you’ll need to use JavaScript. You’ll learn about the DOM (Document Object Model) and how to use it to add functionality to any website. You’ll also learn about event-driven programming: a key concept for any interactive system. By the end of this week you’ll know everything you need to create a fully interactive website from scratch.

Week 5: Tooling with Git, npm & Gulp

If you can, it’s better to let your computer do the hard work for you. In this module we’ll look at version management using Git and GitHub so that you can collaborate on large codebases with other people easily. You’ll also learn about build tools such as Gulp and npm. By the end of this week you’ll be able to work easily with teams anywhere in the world, and save yourself time by automating repetitive development tasks.

Week 6: Object-Oriented Programming with PHP

This week focuses on the core concepts of Object-Oriented Programming – probably the most popular way to write software. We’ll start the week by learning modern PHP. Then we’ll look at how to write a complex application using OOP principles.

Week 7 & 8: Server-Side Web Apps with Laravel

In these weeks you’ll learn Laravel, one of the most popular server-side frameworks out there. You’ll cover everything from MySQL, database migrations, templating languages, and APIs; to deployment on AWS with Capistrano. By the end of these weeks you’ll be able to write a server-side web app with its own API.

Week 9 & 10: Building a UI with React

If you want to build a modern web app you’ll need some way of easily building up complex user interfaces. That’s exactly what React – the most popular front-end UI library in the world – is designed for. By the end of these weeks you will be building complex user interface components with ease.

Week 11: State Management with Redux

Building complex apps is hard. In this week we’ll look at application architecture and how to build an app of any complexity: by keeping things simple. We’ll use Redux with React, to build a web app that can be scaled-up in functionality without becoming difficult to work with. This is the final piece in the jigsaw of becoming a software developer. By the end of the week you’ll know everything you need to build a modern web app of any complexity.

Week 12: Project – Build an App in a week

In the final week of the course you’ll work in a team to create a complete web app from scratch. You’ll decide what to build and how to build it. This will bring together everything you’ve learnt from the previous 15 weeks, culminating in a real app that you can be proud of.

Our instructors are all specialists in their fields and actively work in industry as professional web developers, software engineers, designers and UXers.

This experience and continued participation in their respective sectors allow our instructors to remain up to date with their skills, and accordingly what they pass on to you remains current and highly relevant.

Years of industry experience means our bootcamp instructors have seen it all. Having them on hand is incredibly valuable for people just starting out in the coding careers.

The Coding Fellowship Bootcamp is a highly intensive programme (it’s called a coding bootcamp for a reason) which requires a big commitment from our students. In order to learn everything you need, to head straight into industry upon graduation, you will have to put a lot of time and effort in. We’ll do our bit and teach you everything you need to know and provide as much support as possible, but we’ll need you to do your bit too!

You can expect to be in a LIVE, real-time, learning environment logged on from home, from 9 – 5:30 every weekday involved in a mix of live lectures, coding challenges and project work, with support available throughout the day whenever you need it.

Outside of the core hours you will need to spend extra time immersed in the world of development. This might be working with your fellow students on further study activities; on your own at home practicing what you’ve learnt or working on projects; at evening events, industry meetups and hacks.

It will be an intense ride, but an extremely extremely rewarding one!

We promise it won’t all be hard work though. You’ll be surrounded by a group of likeminded students all going through the same experience. There will be A LOT of collaborative project work and plenty of opportunities for fun along the way.

 

Not only will we teach you all the tech skills you’ll need to embark on your career as developer, we’ll also provide you with a whole heap of career support, advice and guidance along the way too.

This support will come in a variety of forms including:

  • Arrange multiple developer job interviews with hiring partners
  • CV workshops
  • Interview advice
  • Career guidance and opportunities in the tech sector
  • Portfolio development
  • Networking opportunities with UK tech community & employers
  • Industry Mentor Programme
  • Ongoing Career Support – first role and beyond
