COURSE OVERVIEW

You'll write apps starting Day One and during the 12 weeks, you'll work through intense projects, problems, and challenges with your teammates. When you get stuck, we'll be your guide— teaching you how to fish. After 12 weeks, you'll know how to find or make your own solutions to new challenges. Just like in the real world.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN iOS

WEEKS 1 THROUGH 5

Structured like a real dev shop, you'll work  mostly in teams. You'll learn Objective-C so you can be navigate legacy code and Swift so you can stay on the cutting edge.

Your work begins prior to the first day with about 30 hours of work to  get you ready. In the first five weeks of the cohort, you'll pair-program to strengthen the learning.  Morning sessions with our instructors and afternoon challenges with your teammates reinforce software development patterns, techniques, tools and code skills needed as a developer.

We're telling you now: You Won't believe what you've accomplished by the fifth week. 

WEEKS 6 THROUGH 8

In Week 6, you'll pitch and vote on your own app ideas, then break into small teams to develop them.

These days are a bit less structured but every bit as intense. We'll guide you through your architecture decisions and how to get unstuck when you hit a wall. We will hold you accountable for your deliverables.

During these three weeks, we'll introduce techniques.

You'll also hone your abilities to talk about your code and work effectively within a team.

WEEKS 9 THROUGH 12

The last few days are even more focused. Expect to work late many nights as you complete your app and prepare to submit it to the App Store.

On the final day, we invite members of the tech community to see what you have built and give you a chance to talk about your accomplishments at our Meet the Makers event.

We'll take a back seat: This is your time to shine—to stand out in front of your peers and potential employers.

Enjoy it. You've earned it.

STUDENT LIFE 

8:30AM TO 9:00AM

Coffee —rub the sleep out of your eyes and start talking code.

Team-based code reviews and discussion about the prior day's challenges. Everyone will learn and participate in the discussion as well as be required to show off their own work. This allows everyone to get used to talking in front of team members and explaining their code.

9:00AM TO 10:00AM

 

Hackwiches. What's a Hackwich? It's a technique we created based on studies of how people learn and process information. One of our instructors demonstrates a new topic by coding in front of the group, discussing it as its built, then letting everyone mimic what was just done. It's akin to watching a blacksmith work, then returning to your anvil to try it out yourself. Each step is no more than 10 minutes, and we layer them on top of each other, answering questions as we go. It ends up making a type of "sandwich"… get it? Hackwich! 

10:00AM TO 12:30PM

Lunch! Our neighborhoods have some of the best places to eat. If you aren't eating out, we have a fridge and microwave so you can bring your lunch. 

12:30PM TO 1:30PM

Afternoon Coding Challenge. You'll be working in pairs to work on the day's challenges or week's project. You'll start feeling what it's like to work as a developer on a team. You'll be finding your own answers and discovering new techniques, asking questions, and building apps. When you get stuck, grab an instructor who will talk you over your hurdle. 

1:30PM TO 4:30PM

Midday check-in. Our team will discuss any topics that are troublesome, to prepare you to continue coding into the evening before they head out. 

5:00PM ONWARD

You'll likely stay at the space to keep working with your team on challenges. WE also encourage you to use this time to meet with your mentor or attend a networking event. It's not unrealistic for you to keep coding in the space until 9 or 10pm or later. Fortunately, local eateries are open late!

"Mark has helped me learn several technologies. Not only he has wide array of technologies under his belt but also he has amazing teaching skills. Every class Mark taught, class material was covered step by step and with implementation. That really helped me understand what I was learning. Moreover, he is energetic and passionate about making learning process fun." - Amit Chaudhari

"It is obvious that he is passionate about teaching coding. He makes sometimes dry subjects very entertaining with his humor and overall teaching style. He never loses patience with students and takes the time to make sure you understand. 
Mark also goes the extra mile with students. Whenever I would be stuck or in need of help on a project he would take time to help me. I was lucky he took the time to get to know me and assist in the understand subjects I had difficulty with." - Jacob Evans
