Curriculum
Python Focus

Our immersive course emphasizes the Python coding language, a backend language.  We chose to focus on Python due to its speed and analytical capabilities, yet, simplicity.  Python developers are sought out by companies including Google, Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, BuzzFeed, and more. Many of which work with us to shape our curriculum.

Other Languages

Instruction in frontend languages is also provided so students can develop full web applications.  These languages include JavaScript, HTML/HTML5 and  CSS/CSS3.  Sample course topics include: Python libraries, data structures, data visualization, SQL, Pandas, AJX, React, React Native, and more.

Structure

The program is composed of three phases.

  • Phase 1: four-week intensive learning experience dedicated to Python backend fundamentals.
  • Phase 2: four weeks focused on Python frontend design and implementation
  • Phase 3:  six weeks developing two fullstack applications with project focuses available including data science, FinTech, and blockchain
Projects

The program facilitates an environment for teamwork and collaboration. Students create numerous 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.  Sample past projects include:

  • MoneyMusic: music recommendation enginer which creates playlists based an a user’s Spotify library
  • Botserver: allows businesses to interact with their community via artificial intelligence chatbots
  • Medical Map:  Proof of Concept for real MedTech startup
  • PolitiPic: Predicts voter outcomes using facial recognition.
Industry Tracks

Our optional tracks allow students to focus on a desired industry through project work and industry mentors. These students also take our Python fullstack core technology curriculum.

Data Science

With the Python being one of the most popular languages in the data sciences, students may choose a data science focus during the program.  In addition to the core technology curriculum, students will dig deeper into topics such as data science libraries, machine learning,  data acquisition, data analysis and more. Many go into roles such as data analyst, data engineer and data scientist upon completion of the course.

FinTech

In our most popular industry track, students apply programming to the financial industry in order to graduate with the ability to build financial applications.  Students work with APIs widely used in the financial industry.  Ares of FinTech include: payments, insurance (InsurTech), robo-advisory, regulatory tech (RegTech) and more.  Sample past student projects include:

  • 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 help place them at a top company upon graduation. Please see Outcomes for details.
