Module 1

HTML/CSS

Learn the foundations of web development with HTML, CSS, Git, and the Command Line. This module will begin with the basics and quickly move into building your first professionally developed website. By the end of this module, you’ll have the confidence to build and organize coding projects and create multi-page websites using tools/methodologies like Bootstrap, CSS Grid, and Flexbox. Along the way, you will be learning how to back up, revise, and share your code with collaborators using Git.

Module 2 & 3

Python

Get started with scripting in module 2 with Python. This module will get you up to speed on the core concepts of programming using Python’s elegant, easy-to-learn syntax. You’ll learn about looping, conditional statements, data types, object-oriented programming, and more – culminating in a series of small Python applications like shopping carts and interactive games. Module 3 will contain intermediate to advanced techniques building off of a basic knowledge of Python. We’ll learn about regular expressions, user-defined data structures, common algorithms, the importance of time and space complexity, as well as how to communicate our code’s efficiency with other engineers.

We’ll learn about components, how to move information within our front-end apps with Redux, how to connect to the back-end APIs, and more. This module will cover Typescript, functional programming, hosting and authenticating via Google’s Firebase, and creating custom hooks as well.

Technologies Used

React, Google Firebase, Custom Hooks, NPM

Skills Learned:

TypeScript, State Management, Functional Components, Routing, 3rd Party OAuth, Google Cloud Hosting

Building Modern Front-End Applications Building Modern Front-End Applications

Develop real-world single-page applications using react with functional components. Create a robust client-facing website that will seamlessly integrate with the backend we built in previous modules. You will learn industry standard best practices with Redux state-management, writing your own custom hooks, and hosting on Google Firebase.

Module 8

Capstone Project

There will be one capstone project for this course.

Project: Creating your first Full-Stack Application Project: Creating your first Full-Stack Application

Build a phonebook app together with your instructor in-class by incorporating Flask, postgreSQL, HTML, and CSS to build a backend API. Practice your new skills on your own by building your own meme generator or mock library application.

Self-Paced Software Engineering graduates

Five Stars

"I completed the self-paced program in 3-months with no prior coding experience. Never in a million years did I think I could learn to write full-stack applications in just a couple of months, but the program is structured in such a way that even beginners are able to master the content very quickly. Even though the program was self-paced, I never felt unsupported or alone."

Marlisa Rebaum

Five Stars

"This was the best decision I have ever made. I learned so much during the three months at Coding Temple. I can now build full stack applications!! How amazing is that!! With the skillset I acquired at Coding Temple, I was able to land a job as a Software Engineer. I could not have landed it without the amazing instructors at Coding Temple."

Aydee Reichert

Five Stars

"Coding Temple will take you where you want to go. It is hard to see progress in yourself until its exceptionally obvious, but trust the reviews and the program. For me, the structure, and expert guidance was the allure for this camp and I was not disappointed. I highly recommend this course, for anyone looking to get into software development as a career."

Joseph Madenjian

Five Stars

“I didn't want a program that was set up as a bunch of videos to watch with no real support. I could get that from YouTube. So when I was researching the different bootcamp options out there, I liked that Coding Temple offered an instructor. Most did for full-time/in-person courses but CT also offers instructor support in their Self-Paced program. The instructor was extremely helpful when I ran into issues or needed a bit more explanation on various things we were learning. The assignments were engaging, dare I say FUN and challenged you to truly apply what you were learning in the course.”

FAQs

How many hours a week do I need to commit to the Self-Paced Bootcamp?

Our Self-paced bootcamps allow students to work at their own pace and on their own schedule, rather than following a set schedule of live instruction and assignments. The number of hours you need to commit to a self-paced bootcamp will depend on the specific program you choose and your personal learning style and goals. We recommend that you dedicate a minimum of 10-30 hrs per week to complete the program.

Who is a Self-Paced Bootcamp best for?

Our Self-paced bootcamps are generally best for people who are self-motivated, disciplined, and able to manage their own time effectively. This may also be a good option for people who are comfortable learning independently, as this learning option does not involve live instruction or the same level of support as our Full-Time or Part-Time learning options. This program is also a good option for people who are unable to commit to a full-time or part-time program due to other commitments, such as work or family obligations.

It’s important to carefully consider your own learning style and needs before deciding whether a self-paced bootcamp is the right option for you.
