Full-time, immersive

The following 3 methods of delivery are immersive, our students all work together in peer groups, we mix and match students into peer groups amongst these 3 categories, based on best fit for the desired results. In the peer groups, students interact with another doing code reviews. Mentors interact with students and peer groups on a regular daily basis or when required , via video call and / or in-person meetings.

Virtual

We have many students that are never physically in class. We broadcast every lecture as a webinar for our remote students. We use the best of the remote tools like Discord, Google Meet to keep our distance-learning students engaged and part of the team. They learn at the same pace than the others in class. Online training for us is not sitting alone in front of your computer and reading online material. Online for us is more like "in webinar" all the time. You can switch between the delivery types at any time as the price is the same for each.

Hybrid

Our Bootcamp was actually designed to be delivered in 6 stages as follows: one week full-time in the classroom and 3 weeks at home doing assignments. This is still possible as we have streamlined the virtual engagement of the students doing assignments at home. We have daily meetings and team goals that ensures every one is engaged al the time. Online training for us is not sitting alone in front of your computer and reading online material. Online for us is more like "in webinar" all the time. You can switch between the delivery types at any time as the price is the same for each.

In Person

The modules are still delivered in 6 stages and the students who attend full-time still have the core modules delivered in the beginning of the module and then practicals can be done in the classroom as well. This is good for some of us who function better when working in an in-person enviroment with our trainers and co-students around us all the time. You can switch between the delivery types at any time as the price is the same for each.

Part-time, flexible

Virtual

For Part-time students we offer a more flexible online-delivery to enable different paces for different students due to difference in hours that each has available for studying

  • Mentor meetings are after hours during the weekdays between 16h00 and 18h00 unless pre-arranged for different time slots
  • Peer meetings are arranged amongst part-time students at their own convenience
  • In-person meetings are arranged if there are groups of more than 4 people in a localised area at one of our flexi-office premises

The Back-End

Java and Spring Framework

Java is the most in-demand, widely used, portable back-end language which represents all programming concepts of a contemporary programming language. If you know Java - you can switch to any other language very quickly (but not vice-versa). While you are learning your fundamentals of your career, you might as well make a good job of it, because if a company is not using Java, you can switch to any other language quickly.
