Curriculum
Python

With our part-time Python fullstack development bootcamp students learn our core Python fullstack curriculum then have the option to dig deeper by applying it to specific industries by choosing an industry focus such as  FinTech, Blockchain or Medicine.

We emphasize Python due to its speed and analytical capabilities. It is popular in areas including finance and data analysis, and is used by companies in multiple industries such as Bank of America, JP Morgan, BuzzFeed and Pinterest.  It has been ranked as the highest paid coding language for recent bootcamp grads.*  Python is known for its efficiency yet simplicity. Python has numerous open-source libraries and is actually named after the Monty Python movie!

Other Languages

In addition to Python, instruction in other front and backend languages is provided so that you may develop a full web application upon graduation. Frontend languages include JavaScript, HTML/HTML5 and  CSS/CSS3.  Other  topics include: SQL, Pandas, Django, AJAX, Flask, jQuery, Python libraries, data structures and more. We’ll also provide coverage of blockchain technology including blockchain APIs in Python.  We offer a blockchain track for those who seek a stronger focus.   Students will also have access to industry experts, including founders and CEOs, who guest lecture and/or mentor.

Curriculum is heavily project based with emphasis on teamwork.  Past projects includes:

  • Botserver – Allows businesses to interact with their community via artificial intelligence chatbots.
  • Valorem – Commercial real estate data aggregator.
  • Medical Map – Proof of Concept for real MedTech startup.
