Curriculum
Python_logo-256 Python

Since 2014 Python has been the core coding language of our curriculum.  In fact, we were the first in New York City, our headquarters, to offer a full-time program emphasizing the language. We have chosen to expand our Python instruction to Houston in part due to the rising economic growth, number of high-tech startups and biotech companies in the region.  Python is great for processing multiple levels of data and used by companies such as Google, Bank of America, Instagram, Goldman Sachs and more.

Fullstack With An Industry Focus

Our program includes instruction in JavaScript and front-end languages including HTML, HTML5, CSS/CSS3 so that you will be able to develop a full web application upon graduation.   Moreover, you may choose an industry focus as part of the program which helps you apply your software development skills to a chosen industry.  We are particularly known for our FinTech curriculum as we were the first coding bootcamp to offer a FinTech coding program.  Other popular choices include medicine (or MedTech), Data Science, Quant Algos and blockchain.

Outcomes

Our number one priority is to get you a job. We work with companies to develop and adapt our curriculum to teach skill-sets that match real hiring needs. We also utilize the expertise of leading business executives, industry professionals, and those passionate about education and software development to craft each course. To show our commitment to get you a great career, we offer a tuition reimbursement program.  Please see FAQ for details.

Structure

Our bootcamp programs consists of three phases of equal length.  Students may sign-up for only Phase 1 to see if the bootcamp is a fit.  However, most students end up completing our three phase course.  An assessment must be passed in order to advance from one level to the next.  For full-time courses, career services are provided from Day 1 and after graduating our program.

 

Programs

  • Python Fullstack

    Our full and part-time fullstack bootcamps with optional industry focus teach you how to develop web applications using Python in conjunction with frontend languages such as JavaScript, HTML/HTML5 and CSS/CSS3.  Topics covered include: Python libraries, data structures, SQL, Pandas, Django, AJAX and more.

    Why?

    We chose to emphasize the Python programming language due to its speed, relevance, ease of use and demand for Python developers in the job market. For instance, there are 6x more open developer roles looking for Python expertise in the Houston area than those looking for Ruby.*  In addition to programmers, analysts and management at companies are using Python for data analysis, particularly with Microsoft Excel.   Companies using Python include Google, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and more.

  • Python Foundation

    Our introductory evening program teaches the fundamentals of Python development, the core coding language of our curriculum.  Many use Python Foundation to prepare for our more immersive Python bootcamp program.  Upon passing Python Foundation, you may skip the bootcamp pre-work and the cost of the Foundation course will apply to your tuition.

    Many also just use the course to help  automate the “boring stuff” in life and before more efficient, particularly with using Microsoft Excel and other office tools.  Topics covered include variables, data structures, introduction to algorithms, computer science topics and more.
