Curriculum
Python Focus

Our Python Fullstack Immersive course teaches web application development in Python, Javascript, React, HTML, and CSS. Python is a powerful, multi-domain language and ranks among the highest-paid and most sought-after skillsets in the tech industry; it is used by top companies including Google, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, BuzzFeed and many more. Beyond app development, Python has applications in data science, artificial intelligence and system administration, among others. Skills learned in this program launch our graduates into many different fields.

Skillset

In our small class size, seminar-style program, students learn Python for backend web development and gain familiarity with its data toolkit (pandas, numpy, matplotlib, jupyter) as well as its extensive standard library. We teach SQL relational database design & queries as well as web server configuration and deployment. Students complete their projects as live websites, visible to the world.

Students will develop their projects with the latest HTML5 & CSS3 standards and receive thorough instruction in Javascript, the language of dynamic web frontends. The frontend development phase concludes with the React.js framework, a modern and highly in-demand framework for building dynamic single-page apps developed by Facebook.

In addition to learning the web stack, students will learn concepts from computer science, with an emphasis on their application to coding interview questions.

During the final phase, students develop two projects, at least one of which must be a team effort. Projects often involve students’ prior expertise in their field and instructor-guided study in technologies beyond the standard curriculum. Past student project work has included applications in FinTech, Artificial Intelligence, Game Development, MedTech, Blockchain, and others.

Structure

The program is composed of three phases.

  • Phase 1: A four-week intensive course in core Python programming skills & concepts and various areas of application.
  • Phase 2: Web technology including server-side page rendering in an industry-standard Python web framework (Flask or Django) and dynamic frontend development with HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, and React.js
  • Phase 3: Six-week project development phase in which students build two portfolio-quality projects to display to potential employers.
Projects

The program fosters an environment of teamwork and collaboration. Students create three projects which are part of a portfolio that they showcase to potential employers. Some students have the opportunity to work on projects to aid companies in the real world. Past projects have included:

  • MoneyMusic: music recommendation engine creating playlists based on a user’s Spotify library
  • Botserver:
  • allows businesses to interact with their community via artificial intelligence chatbots
  • Medical Map: Proof of Concept for a real MedTech startup
  • PolitiPic: Predicts voter outcomes using facial recognition
  • FlexInvest: crowdfunds Wall Street investments
  • MarketTracker: graphs stock prices related to tweets
  • Jade Lizard: options strategy to maximize returns
Career Services

Throughout the program, our career services team works closely with students to get them hired by top companies upon graduation. Please see Outcomes for details.

    After, graduating from college, I felt that I didn’t have the hands on experience that a lot of companies are seeking. Byte Academy not only gave me the full stack development skills; they also gave me the finance education that allowed me to find and thrive in the FinTech industry. Upon leaving the bootcamp I found a position as an python developer in a startup company, called Enso Financial in the fintech industry. After, the company saw a successful acquisition, I left the company to work at one of the world's leading investing banks JPMorgan Chase & Co. For anyone thinking about learning to code, they should learn the basic and see if they truly enjoy it. And know that programming isn’t a solo act, it takes a team. Thats why learning programming in a group setting works the best. While attending byte I did not only learn to program but also build friendships that followed me through out my career dis far.

    Going to Byte Academy was the best decision of my Life

    I can't say enough good things about Byte Academy. From the admissions, to the instructors, and everywhere in between this is a great bootcamp. The environment is very relaxed, while also maintaining a professional atmoshphere. I learned enough to build full stack apps, and if I am unsure of something, I now have the know-how to research and learn something new. I would recommend Byte Academy to anyone, and ecourage anyone who is on the fence, to go ahead and enroll!

    BEST BOOTCAMP: GREAT CHOICE

    I come from a computer science background. I graduated college in December 2015 and joined Byte in January 2016. I wanted to be a stronger developer so i wanted to join a boot camp. I was pretty skeptical of where I wanted to go, and I remember reading the reviews on this site, and becoming more skeptical, not knowing if Byte would be a great experience. However, because I wanted to learn python/django I went with it and joined byte. Jeff was my instructor for the three phases; he was a very helpful and great person along with all the other instructors at Byte. Byte is probably the best choice I’ve made in my life so far. It was much better than just having a degree in computer science. If you are thinking of join Byte I suggest you come in and just talk to some of the students that are in the later phases. Don’t even bother with speaking to the heads of Byte. Speak to the students and find out for yourself. I graduated Byte in April 2016, and I am so glad I chose byte and worked with a language like Python. Facts: -The curriculum is pretty hard but manageable, also there are ways to catch up if you slack off. -The space is not the biggest They do have lots of monitors and tables Instructors are very helpful. They all are willing to help you with a problem until you understand completely They are open 24/7 so you are able to come in and code weekends or late night ( I really love that about them) There are many other small features, like presentations, which help you prepare for the job world. You will be in mid down, lots of food places, great view. They have big name companies (Bloomberg, Ibm...) that actively take resumes of graduates from Byte. very helpful with resumes, cover letters, and preparing for interviews.

    Summary: Great for beginners. Do the prework. The smallness is both a positive (hands on instruction) and a slight negative (small network of fellow students and alumni through whom to find jobs). Great at teaching you the basics and how to learn. The phase 3 project is an awesome opportunity to build skills and build a portfolio showpiece. Python is great for the finance industry, academia, and data heavy projects. The career services aspect is a little lacking, and needs more structure. Attended: February-May 2016 Background: One quantitative methods in Mathematica course in college, one week of Coursera R programming, and some very limited self taught VBA skills. This course is great for those looking to get into full stack web development, especially those with a limited background in programming. In the first two phases you will learn the basics of object oriented programming and web development. The plentiful coursework and hands on instruction mean that, if the student puts in the time and energy, they will be able to build some pretty cool projects in phase 3. The course will give you a foundation in data structures, algorithms, database design, API's, and MVC architecture in phase 1. In phase 2 you will put these concepts into practice with the Django framework for the back end and JavaScript for the front end. You will also learn AJAX, so that by the end of phase 2 you can make a single page application. Phase 3, when you build your own project, is when you "take the training wheels off" and start figuring out frameworks or technologies yourself, and how to incorporate them into your project. Instructors will help point you in the right direction, while giving you the space to do your own work. Many students collaborate on their final project, which is not only an opportunity to build a better project than you could have on your own, but also gives you the opportunity to learn and use a version control system (in my case Git). Pros: hands on instruction, great curriculum, and a balance between instilling best practices and learning how to learn. That is, instructors will emphasize doing things the "right way" while also preparing you to figure out how to build projects yourself and learn yourself. Also learning Python and Django are great if you want to go into a more data heavy engineering role. Another advantage of Python is that it has many packages and libraries, so once you get the hang of it you can quickly use those packages and libraries to do some really cool things. Cons: If you're a complete beginner and don't do the pre-work it's very likely you will need to re-do phase one. The pre-work is essential for the student to hit the ground running. That's not really a con but just a note that it is really more like a four month commitment than a three month commitment. Also finding a job can take some time, but I think that's true for other bootcamps as well. "This course is great for those looking to get into full stack web development, especially those with a limited background in programming. Instructors will point you in the right direction, while giving you space to do your own work.”

    “Byte Academy became a bridge towards my career in programming. A very fast-paced, challenging program was just what I needed to learn coding. In my opinion the biggest advantage is that it teaches Python! My relationship with BA continues past my graduation and I am very happy I chose Byte!"
