A typical day at bootcamp

Grab some coffee and settle in… by 9am our instructors begin the first hour of lecture. After morning lecture you dive into hands-on assignments that cover the day’s newest material, working individually or within small groups. After an afternoon lunch break we gather at 2pm for afternoon lecture, followed by additional coding time. We end each day with a “what went well” group session to discuss the day’s successes. Evenings often include guest lectures, networking events, or social gatherings.
