Curriculum

There’s a revolution happening in web development. The progression from cumbersome MVC frameworks like Ruby on Rails and AngularJS, to the modular Node.js runtime and functional ReactJS library, is making programming for the web more fun and productive than ever. Unfortunately, many coding bootcamps have failed to update their curriculum to prepare students for the future of web development. Barcelona Code School’s Full-Stack JavaScript Bootcamp teaches the skills with the highest and fastest-growing demand in the entry-level job market.

Community

Barcelona Code School is dedicated to helping students succeed before, during and after the Full-Stack JavaScript Bootcamp. Before the bootcamp, workshops are available to help students learn some basics helping them to be better prepared for the program. Tuition assistance in the form of financing is also available. In addition to Lead Instructor the Full-Stack JavaScript Bootcamp team includes Teaching Assistants who ensure students get the individual attention they need to overcome obstacles and keep up with coursework. Evening and weekend activities give students the physical and mental breaks needed for optimal performance in the classroom. During the bootcamp you could be introduced to local recruiters and industry professionals to talk about interviewing skills and how to find a job after graduation. There are an incredible number of tech startups and established companies in need of full-stack developers in Barcelona. Upon graduation, Barcelona Code School offers an optional residency program to help students build on what they learned in the bootcamp while networking and interviewing for jobs.

WHY A CODING BOOTCAMP?

Where are many ways to learn coding. The main three are self-teaching, college degree and coding bootcamp. Self-teaching works for some people who like to read documentation and are capable to understand how to apply this information to a project. Indeed it takes time and much effort with self discipline. The college degree is great. We believe it gives some indepth knowledge and in a slow pace you have plenty of time to understand a lot of theoretical knowledge and also practice some coding. The downturn of college CS degree is that it costs a lot and the curriculums are mainly outdated. So upon graduation you will have to study web dev by yourself. A coding bootcamp gives you a huge boost since it is so intensive and you practice immediately. Students cover the same volume of knowledge that they could learn in a year on their own. If you put all of your effort into it you will be on another level in 2 months. It is proved that you can ge to the entry level developer after the bootcamp. Of course you will be only progressing inside the selected stack. Good thing is that you will get the understanding of general logic and thinking in coding that will make it much easier to learn a new language or framework afterwards. If you would decide to look for a JavaScript developer job in Barcelona things are looking quite promising. With tech scene booming in BCN there is a strong need for JavaScript full-stack developers both in local startups and established companies. According to jobsbcn.com the average salary range for JavaScript developers in Barcelona startups is somewhere between 26000€ – 37000€ with maximum reaching 50000€.

WHY JAVASCRIPT?

Ubiquitous

Javascript is the world’s most popular programming language, and it’s easy to see why. It is used by apps and web browsers in billions of laptops and mobile devices, and is becoming the language of choice for server-side programming at leading online companies like Netflix.

Asynchronous

JavaScript is taking over server-side development because of its ability to process multiple requests simultaneously. This enables huge performance gains without upgrading hardware.

Isomorphic

Unlike languages such as Ruby and Python that only run on web servers, JavaScript is used both on servers and in web browsers and mobile apps. This lets developers focus on business logic and user experience, rather than the idiosyncrasies of multiple programming languages.

JOB PLACEMENT

Learning coding is a long path with a lot of skills and experience obtained during long hours of working on your projects, debugging, trying and failing before succeeding. We believe that it’s not possible to train a developer in 8 weeks (or 12, or 16, or 20 for that matter). Since we accept students with zero experience what we do is try to give them the fundamental understanding of how web development works, introduce to the right tools and libraries and help them to get on track of improving and mastering their skills. We firmly believe, that without 4-10 months of developing experience it would be pretty hard to land a good paying job. One way to do it is to apply for the internship (for which there are many possibilities in Barcelona and outside it) and after that while gaining mastery grow inside chosen company. Another way to work for clients or non-profits implementing knowledge obtained during our bootcamp and with gained experience and impressive portfolio apply for your dream job. Some students might find it interesting to stay with us after the graduation and have an internship as an assistant instructors or work on some projects coming from our web dev lab. Where are many options really and we will try our best to help you to chose your path and succeed on it. Just please don’t believe the false promises, better believe in yourself and you’ll be fine. We are going to make sure of it!
