At GW Boot Camps, our courses use a combination of lectures and exercises, both individual and in groups. Students work in the classroom and at home to master these new valuable skills. Homework assignments allow you to apply the concepts that are taught in class to solve real-world problems. Learning to put the course concepts to use is a vital part of mastering the topics covered. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive learning experience with real insight into a “day in the life” of a full-stack developer, data analyst, or UX research/UI designer.
Our boot camps cover complex fields, and we believe it’s advantageous to learn the fundamental skills for these industries in a classroom setting. We provide an intimate environment with ample support, both in and outside of the classroom. Students have access to skilled instructors, as well as knowledgeable TAs, and every member of our staff is eager to provide in-depth support.
Don’t second guess yourself if you want to do it, I say just go ahead and do it. With the way the job market and technology is going, this is almost a perfect situation for someone to jump into.-Alfred, 2017 GW Coding Boot Camp Grad
All work is completed via laptop, so there’s no need to purchase textbooks. Students acquire applied knowledge through hands-on experience. By working with your peers on web development or data analytics projects, you learn to solve real world problems while building an impressive portfolio. Each course structure is broken up into three main groups:
Class discussions are led by skilled instructors and cover the background, history, and use of a new technology, method, or concept.
Classroom teaching is put to the test during individual and group exercises that are completed during class. Students also practice and develop their skills as they complete projects outside of class that can be used to build their portfolio.
Your portfolio demonstrates that you are ready to take on real projects. During the program, you’ll build a substantial portfolio of projects that exhibits your abilities across a variety of technologies.
