Dev Bootcamp students are smart, passionate individuals who are committed to putting in tremendous time and energy towards learning in a collaborative environment. They are also lifelong learners and people who bring a positive, open-minded attitude to the learning process.
Successful Dev Bootcamp students have:
Strong communication skills: Because much of your time at Dev Bootcamp will be spent solving coding challenges and building projects in pairs and groups, we are looking for people who can communicate what they understand, can ask clarifying questions when they are confused, and are comfortable struggling with new information.
Displayed interest in the field of programming: While our program is designed for those new to software development, it is important that students have a demonstrated interest in technology and coding. We recommend exploring online resources, attending meetups or hackathons, or creating your own projects.
Kindness and self-awareness: Our unique Engineering Empathy program is a series of seminars that focus on the human side of software development. The curriculum addresses a wide range of issues that enable teams to be more effective and productive by removing interpersonal or intrapersonal barriers that can stand in the way. This curriculum is frequently cited by alumni and employers as an important learning outcome of of the Dev Bootcamp experience and one that distinguishes Dev Bootcamp graduates from those of other bootcamp programs.
