COURSES

iOS

In our iOS summer course we  will provide you with the tools and skills necessary to develop an iOS App from scratch. By the end of this  course you will be able to demonstrate intermediate application of programming in Swift, the powerful new programming language for iOS. Guided by best practices you will become proficient with syntax, object oriented principles, memory management, functional concepts and more in programming with Swift. This course is unique in its dedication to teaching Swift 3.The latest Swift programming language. With new features and capabilities you will be at the forefront of writing iOS apps.

Android

Android course, will teach you how to use various Android Studio tools, such as the debugger, resource editor, logging mechanisms, etc.  This MOOC also covers basic concepts and APIs related to Android’s Material Design paradigm. Students will work incrementally on a hands-on project involving a simple Material Design-based music streaming app throughout the MOOC, i.e., each week they will add additional capabilities to it, based on the material covered in that week’s lecture.

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 12:30PM

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! 

12:30PM TO 1:30PM

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. 

1:30PM TO 4:30PM

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.

4:30PM TO 5:00PM

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!
