Each Fundamentals of Web Development cohort is assigned to a specific full-time instructor. This instructor (aka Phase Lead) will be in touch with students, tracking them and assisting them to make sure they successfully learn with the program. Instructors are hired because they have just the right mix of coding industry work experience, technical knowledge, and effective teaching skills. Some of our instructors even went through Dev Bootcamp’s 18-week immersive experience, including Fundamentals of Web Development, so they really understand the student experience.
Guides are Dev Bootcamp alumni at various stages of their web development careers. Some have just graduated from Dev Bootcamp’s 18-week immersive program and have an excellent perspective into the experience of being a student. Others graduated well over a year ago and have been working as web developers. Guides are hired to serve as great resources for students, answering, questions, and guiding live pair programming sessions.
