A DAY IN THE LIFE
A DAY IN THE LIFE
Open up your daily readings: they’ll help you to start thinking and talking like an industry leader. Get to campus early to discuss them over a cup of coffee with your classmates.
Head into coding lectures and open your laptop. An industry professional will take you through the day’s new coding concepts. You’ll code along and get to work through practical exercises to make sure that you are grasping the concepts. This is your opportunity to ask questions.
Put your coding skills to the test with coding projects. By the end of the course, you should have a portfolio that enables you to grab that position as a junior web developer! On project days you can choose to work from our co-working space or wherever you feel most productive (working remotely is one of the perks of your future career in tech). You’ll have access to a coach who can guide you along when you work through tricky bugs in your code.
Gather around the lunch table for a meal with your classmates and others working from the coworking space.
On some afternoons guest lecturers will share cutting-edge industry trends with you; on others you’ll learn how to use Design Thinking to create innovative solutions. These are the critical 21st century skills that will future proof your career!
