Collaboration

Learn with Stacked Modules

Concepts in each of our courses are taught using stacked modules, where a new concept is introduced in each class session, building upon what came before it. This is a challenging style that requires persistence, practice, and collaboration, but allows more concepts to be introduced over the length of the course. This method helps students learn and retain more information in a short period of time. Learn more about stacked modules.

Outcomes

By the end of this course, you will:

Career Development

We dedicate 2 full days of Code 401 to workshops and presentations that teach you the skills you’ll need for your job search. You’ll cover topics such as personal branding techniques, effective networking practices, how to create an attractive resume, mastering personal and technical interviews, and job search best practices!

Additionally, during each project week, you and your classmates will present collaborative projects that will build your professional portfolio.

Code for Community

We encourage Code 401 students to work on apps that prompt social change or support your communities. Projects that focus on bringing real value to the lives of others not only shine on a resume but will help you focus on solving real-world problems with just your computers and an internet connection.

Partners and Market-specific Training

To ensure that our training prepares students for successful careers, we partner with local companies—small and large—to stay up to date on market trends and technology.

As our partners share which frameworks and tools they’re are looking for, we incorporate the most in-demand skills into our curriculum. Our partners are involved in the education process by speaking to classes and actively hiring graduates.

Ongoing Support

Our support and guidance extends well beyond graduation day. After successfully completing the course, Code 401 graduates receive job search tips and leads, gain access to our alumni network, and can continue to get one-on-one feedback and guidance on their job search.

Prerequisites

*Students with previous experience can test out of this requirement in their application. If you’d like to test straight into Code 401, please make sure you have experience with all of the topics listed on the Code 201 and Code 301 course pages.

Prework

Once you are accepted into the course, please complete the Code 401 Prework. This important Prework makes up part of your 401 grades!

Material Requirements

You are required to supply your own laptop that meets the below requirements. Chromebooks are not suitable for this course, since you can’t directly control installed software. You are responsible for the upkeep and maintenance of your computer throughout the course. The course will include a class session dedicated to configuring your computer to be ready for professional-grade software development the first day of class.

Plus, we offer tuition assistance and are GI Bill® approved!

Nights and Weekends

DeltaV understands that our software development program is a huge undertaking. That’s why we adapted the Code 301: Intermediate Software Development curriculum to a nights and weekends format! The program stretches our 4-week daytime program across 7 weeks of classes Mondays through Thursdays and Saturdays. The course still features live instruction, group projects and presentations, and career coaching, but at the pace that fits your busy life!

What are you waiting for? Let’s continue your coding journey with Code 301 Nights and Weekends!
