What a typical day looks like in Bogotá Bootcamp

9:00

MORNING SESSION

We start our mornings with a review session and coffee. Every Monday we will cover content from the previous week; Granger will recap the important stuff in order to really drill it in.

10:30

BASIC CONCEPTS

Depending on what week it is, Granger will cover the basic concepts throughout the early morning and then give you a problem that forces you use the new concepts. Most likely these problems involve computer science theory. In the morning, your mind will work quicker and absorb more. So, we use this time to get the harder problems out of the way.

12:30

ALMUERZO! LUNCH!

Take a break. You need it. Lunch is mandatory! Get some Colombian fuel, and go for a walk. We are right next to a basketball court and we have yoga matts available if you need to stretch out and move.Don’t forget to chat up your classmates; everyone has an interesting story to tell.

14:00

PRACTICAL APPLICATION

After an entire morning of coding, your mind is going to function a bit slower. So, we dedicate our afternoons to work on some practical problems;the coding concepts introduced in the morning will be applied to a real world scenario. Sometimes you will work on your own, and other days we will set up in teams.Being able to work with others is an important skill to have as a software developer because many companies will give projects to groups not individuals.

16:00

PROJECT WORK & SUPPORT

During weeks 5, 8 and 10 much of your afternoon will be spent on project work. During these hours of the day you will focus on your individual or group project that you have planned We are with you throughout the entire process. After our course you’ll have three projects to showcase in your portfolio!

17:00-17:30

QUESTIONS

Go home, class is over. Just kidding, Granger will stick around to answer any questions. We will help you plan your next project, or go over some concepts that we covered in the morning and they just didn’t stick.Don’t be shy ask away!

What our students say about us!

Life Changing

"I wanted to go somewhere else and focus on learning Ruby on Rails without breaking the bank, and that's exactly what I got. I liked the fact that, as a preparation for the job market, we had to work on practical problems from a programming standpoint. The teacher is dynamic and good communicator, and the program is well-organized. "

Florette Massillon
Incredible Bootcamp

"This bootcamp helped me acquire high coding skills in a short amount of time and improve my professional profile and job opportunities thanks to the portfolio I built here. The classes were fun and dynamic, and as a Colombian I was also able to practice my English and meet people from around the world."

Diego Zuluaga
Unforgettable experience

"I have gotten so much out of this course! I started with very minimal coding experience and have been able to catch on quickly. Granger is a great communicator and his experience as a professional coder and a teacher are a great combination. I would highly recommend the course as it is unbeatable for the price and is run in an organised and professional manner."

Matt Kirk
Highly Recommended

"The course was an amazing learning experience. The instructor is not only a highly skilled web developer, but also a great teacher. The class size is small which means that you can get more individual attention and get your questions answered fast. The course takes you from the very basics of programming all the way to building multiple full-fledged web apps with all the bells and whistles."
