Becoming a well-rounded developer is much more than learning language syntax.
In this intensive course, you will study the common core of software development, including the MVC pattern, object-oriented and functional programming, and computer science fundamentals such as basic data structures and algorithms. Come learn how to create and deploy web apps in the “MERN” stack with Mongo, Express, React, and Node.js, with the help of third-party APIs and libraries from around the web.
This course includes a career coaching curriculum to get you ready for your job search. The course totals 160 hours, including lectures, lab, coworking, and collaborative projects.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
- Design dynamic frontend and backend applications which can function together or independently and are deployed to cloud platforms.
- Explain the fundamentals of how the World Wide Web works, over the internet.
- Utilize dependency management techniques to build with third-party libraries such as ExpressJS and React-Bootstrap
- Persist one-to-many relational data across multiple tables in a SQL database, sourced from third-party API or user-generated content.
- Follow agile software development practices during week-long sprints, including pair-programming, stand-ups, daily retrospectives, project management with Kanban boards, regular refactoring, and working in a shared code base.
- Have the skills to enroll in a Code 401 course or attain an entry-level website development job or internship by completing the course requirements.
Once you are accepted into the course, please complete the Code 301 Prework. This important Prework makes up a part of your 301 grades!
Computer & Material Requirements
Students are required to bring their own laptop with plenty of free space on the hard drive. By the first day of class, students will need:
- The latest version of Google Chrome
- A text editor: Visual Studio Code
- A GitHub account
- Supplemental course material will be based on Treehouse and Code School, both of which require a subscription. You may already be using these excellent resources to prepare for this course.
- Linux: Windows machines should be set up to dual-boot a Linux operating system. We recommend Ubuntu.
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 »
DeltaV Code School provides only a pass/fail transcript and does not assign letter grades to each student. However, to monitor student progress throughout each program, DeltaV Code School uses a point-based grading system that is introduced to the students on the first day of each program. In order to pass the class, students must attain at least 90% of available points. For more information, see Grading System and Disciplinary Action For Low Grades.
Punctuality, participation in discussions, completion of assignments, and demonstration of professional courtesy to others are required. Attendance will be taken at the beginning of every class. Passing requires at least 90% attendance. Students should always contact the instructors ahead of time if they are unable to attend all or part of a class session.
