HTML— Hypertext Markup Language is the basic building block used to create websites. Think of a website as a house, and HTML is the foundation used to frame and support the building. From here we can transition into HTML5, which is like updating and adding onto our current home. These updates include cross platform uses, and building a more complex website that has better graphics and support for music and videos.
CSS3— Cascading style sheets is a language used to make the website look pretty. paint, fancy doors, and fine details of a house that makes it stick out from the other houses on the block: It is the unique qualities that make an app. The look and format depends on the browser which allows developers to build rich-content webpages without the bulky code requirements. Like a house, the updated functions are still compatible with the old features— CSS3 is backwards compatible with earlier versions of CSS.
Bootstrap is like a library of ready-made code that can be used to build an awesome website. Developers can reference to this huge database instead of building everything from scratch, saving time and energy. The framework contains multitudes of code that can help with styling and design. It would also make it easier to shift your work between different platforms (desktop to tablet to mobile).
Git is a way for you to store and merge your code. It's a distributed revision control and source code management (SCM) system with an emphasis on speed. Git thinks of its data more like a set of snapshots of a mini filesystem. Every time you commit, or save the state of your project in Git, it basically takes a picture of what all your files look like at that moment and stores a reference to that snapshot.
NoSQL (MongoDB Couch etc.) database movement came about to address the shortcomings of relational databases (SQL). MongoDB is the leading NoSQL database, with significant adoption among the Fortune 500 and Global 500. It is an agile database that allows schemas to change quickly as applications evolve, while still providing the functionality developers require. MongoDB is built for scalability, performance and high availability. It can scale single server deployments to large, complex multi-site architectures.
Express is a minimal and flexible Node.js web application framework. It provides a robust set of features for building web applications. It is a light-weight, Sinatra-inspired web development framework. Express provides several great features such as an intuitive view system, robust routing, and an executable for generating applications.
By deploying an application, service, or component, you distribute it for installation on other computers, devices, servers, or in the cloud. The key to a successful deployment is understanding what technology to use, and why we should use it. This module goes through the basics of such technology including Joyent, ASW, EC2, Ninefold, and many more, which can be used to ensure successful deployment of the application, service or component you have created.
Ruby on Rails, or simply Rails, is an open source web application framework written in Ruby. Rails is a full-stack framework that emphasizes the use of well-known software engineering patterns and paradigms, including convention over configuration (CoC), don't repeat yourself (DRY), the active record pattern, and model–view–controller (MVC)
LAMP stack is a popular open source web platform commonly used to run dynamic web sites and servers. It includes Linux, Apache, MySQL, and PHP/Python/Perl and is considered by many the platform of choice for development and deployment of high performance web applications which require a solid and reliable foundation.
One of the biggest challenges of developing mobile applications is trying to port the application to multiple platforms. jQuery Mobile is a HTML5-based user interface system designed to make responsive web sites and apps that are accessible on all mobile, tablet and desktop devices. Mainly used for touch interface devices, it is effort-less and multi-platform, and it uses only HTML5 standard code.
The beautiful, open source front-end SDK for developing hybrid mobile apps with HTML5. Build great hybrid apps with web technologies you already know and love. Free and open source, Ionic offers a library of mobile-optimized HTML, CSS and JS components, gestures, and tools for building highly interactive apps. Built with Sass and optimized for AngularJS.
Putting your project together can be challenging. We use this time to wrap up your code and prepare for final deployment. We also encourage our students to make their code free and available to others on GitHub. The applications you have developed will become your resume. If you can hold an intelligent conversation discussing the process, creation, and purpose, you have officially become a rock star developer who is ready for the real world!

The following are just a few reasons Node.js is a great framework:
Image Event-driven scalability: Node.js applies a unique logic to handling web requests. Rather than having multiple threads waiting to process web requests, with Node.js they are processed on the same thread, using a basic event model. This allows Node.js webservers to scale in ways that traditional webservers can’t.
Image Extensibility: Node.js has a great following and very active development community. People are providing new modules to extend Node.js functionality all the time. Also, it is very simple to install and include new modules in Node.js; you can extend a Node.js project to include new functionality in minutes.
Image Fast implementation: Setting up Node.js and developing in it are super easy. In only a few minutes you can install Node.js and have a working webserver.
Plus Node.js jobs are among the highest paying web development jobs.
AngularJS provides functionality to handle user input in the browser, manipulate data on the client side, and control how elements are displayed in the browser view. Here are some of the benefits AngularJS provides:
Image Data binding: AngularJS has a very clean method for binding data to HTML elements, using its powerful scope mechanism.
Image Extensibility: The AngularJS architecture allows you to easily extend almost every aspect of the language to provide your own custom implementations.
Image Clean: AngularJS forces you to write clean, logical code.
Image Reusable code: The combination of extensibility and clean code makes it very easy to write reusable code in AngularJS. In fact, the language often forces you to do so when creating custom services.
Image Support: Google is investing a lot into this project, which gives it an advantage over similar initiatives that have failed.
Plus Angular.js jobs are among the highest paying front-end web development jobs.
MongoDB is an agile and very scalable NoSQL database. MongoDB provides great website backend storage for high-traffic websites that need to store data such as user comments, blogs, or other items because it is quickly scalable and easy to implement.
The following are some of the reasons that MongoDB really fits well in the Node.js stack:
Image Document orientation: Because MongoDB is document oriented, data is stored in the database in a format that is very close to what you deal with in both server-side and client-side scripts. This eliminates the need to transfer data from rows to objects and back.
Image High performance: MongoDB is one of the highest-performing databases available. Especially today, with more and more people interacting with websites, it is important to have a backend that can support heavy traffic.
Image High availability: MongoDB’s replication model makes it very easy to maintain scalability while keeping high performance.
Image High scalability: MongoDB’s structure makes it easy to scale horizontally by sharding the data across multiple servers.
Image No SQL injection: MongoDB is not susceptible to SQL injection (that is, putting SQL statements in web forms or other input from the browser and thereby compromising database security). This is the case because objects are stored as objects, not using SQL strings.
Plus MongoDB jobs are among the highest paying web development jobs.
Seriously you can go cross-platform with HTML5.
jQuery Mobile framework takes the "write less, do more" mantra to the next level: Instead of writing unique applications for each mobile device or OS, the jQuery mobile framework allows you to design a single highly-branded responsive web site or application that will work on all popular smartphone, tablet, and desktop platforms.
Plus jQuery Mobile jobs are among the highest paying development jobs.
The program is 12 weeks long and runs from 9:30 am - 6:00 pm Monday through Friday. However, students typically end up working a few extra hours on their own each night and around 8-10 hours over the weekend as well. We suggest you let everyone in your life know you are going on an educational sabbatical for 12 weeks.
You will need your brain, your computer, your excitement and self-motivation. We do NOT provide computers, you must bring your own. Mac computers are preferred but PCs are welcome as well as long as you are running Ubuntu (Don’t worry we will help you with this)
Yes, absolutely! There is no prior programming experience needed for the program. We will teach you everything you need to know. This program is actually perfect for beginners. You will be amazed at the progress you will make over 12 weeks.
This program is still for you! You will not only learn Node.js but also work on your management abilities and work as part of a team. This program will help you build a strong portfolio and build a deeper understanding of programmatic thinking that can be applied to any and all languages.
You are in the right place! Many of our previous students have been entrepreneurs looking to build up their technical skills to either work better with developers or hire and manage developers efficiently. Through the bootcamp you will learn to be a developer for the 10 weeks of the course to be able to then put yourself in your technical staffs shoes easily and effectively.
We are not a certified program, however, this is for a very particular reason - under a certification program we are unable to adjust curriculum to match that of the market and what is the most updated version of the technologies we teach. Being uncertified allows us to update our program as soon as the industry standard evolves.
If you are unsure of the program and have more questions than our website is able to answer please make sure to email (email@example.com) or call us (888.432.3387). Also think about attending an info session to meet our team in person and get your feet wet with the material.
Once you have decided that the program is for you, you must fill out an application. Click on the ‘Apply’ button at the top right hand corner of the website and tell us a little bit about yourself. We will then send you an email and set up an in person interview with the program director and the bootcamp instructors. We are a rolling admission organization and within one to two weeks of your interview we will email you with your acceptance. After receiving your acceptance you will be given instructions on payments and on pre-work for you to do prior to the first day of class to familiarize yourself with the concepts.
Each class varies in the number of students, however, most are anywhere between 10-30 students in each cohort.
Throughout the program we will also be preparing you for how to work as a developer in the workplace. Our program is built to mimic a real development shop so all of our students get a good idea of what it feels like to actually work as a developer. We will also prepare you for the job seeking process as a developer. We will help you build your resume, your github, prepare for technical interviews and connect you to anyone we know through our networks.
You are still welcome at School of Devs and will still have access to instructors and your fellow students. We do not abandon our students and we make sure that they are set up to succeed. Yet, at the end of the day though, finding a job is your responsibility.
