Coding is among one of the most in-demand skills in today’s job market. In this one week bootcamp, you are going to gain real-world experience as you learn the basics of coding, start to understand computational thinking, and learn how to manage your source code. You will learn all about if statements, for loops, functions and more. And you are going to learn how to break bigger problems down into smaller pieces so that you can create structured programs that are easy to maintain.
Because GIT is a critical skill as you learn how to become a software developer, this bootcamp will also place emphasis on version control. You will learn how to manage your source code history and use version control as a tool for both developing and debugging your software. You will also learn how to use GIT to collaborate on projects with other developers and learn how you can contribute to open source projects on the internet. By contributing to open source projects as a student, you will be able to build a real-world portfolio of coding work as you move through your college career. With these fundamentals, you’ll be equipped to tackle whatever coding challenges you face next!
