Aloha! My name is Emily, and I’m interested in becoming a software engineer. But because I’m just starting out, I think I need a pretty comprehensive program. In particular, I'd like to know if the bootcamp mainly consists of video-based learning materials or if there will be something more.
Hi, Emily! Thank you for your question. Wherever you are in your tech career journey, our bootcamps are made to help you gain the skills you need to secure a job in your chosen field.
And because of that, your education at TripleTen consists of much more than videos. Here’s why we know you’ll get that comprehensive learning experience you’re looking for.
Expert-backed program content
The bootcamp program is created by professionals, specifically experts with extensive experience in software engineering, data analytics, quality assurance, and data science. They developed six modules for each learning direction, made to transform beginners into entry-level specialists. That’s why each bootcamp includes training in all the necessary skills for beginners. Throughout your studies, you'll:
- Gain advanced knowledge of HTML and CSS
- Be introduced to BEM, Git, and debugging
- Develop an understanding of programming logic
- Use React library and Node.js.
Even though only 13% of students have prior experience in STEM, everyone manages to learn.
That’s because the program is understandable and user-friendly, even for beginners without experience. Each term is broken down, and the logic is fully explained in a digestible way.
Students say they love the learning process at TripleTen. What's the secret? Our interactive platform! TripleTen’s platform provides theory, coding practice, and projects all in one window. And it’s intuitively easy to use. Through TripleTen's interactive and engaging content, you'll be well on your way to a new profession while having fun learning.
To break down the content, our learning process is divided into sprints — two- to three-week planned periods of work toward a tangible outcome. Most tech companies work in sprints, so you'll show up prepared. Each sprint caps off with a project that's reviewed line-by-line by a professional software engineer. You won't be watching lecture videos about theory all day. Our sprints help students effectively grasp the theory and later apply it to real-world tasks.
Professional code review
Despite the fact that students learn independently, they are not left alone. There is always someone to clarify any misunderstanding or even check their code. A professional software engineer will review every line of your codeTripleTen Code Reviews: Why, Who, How? to make sure it works the way it's supposed to and follows industry best practices. Rest assured, you will learn methods that are inaccessible to many beginners, which will set you apart in the job market.
Support along the way
Mastering a new skill comes with challenges. Difficult moments sometimes require outside perspective or assistance to overcome. That's why we allocate support hours to meet your specific needs. We’re ready to support your education, provide advice, and help you solve coding tasks. Tech support will assist you in getting your tools up and running while a community manager will guide you through the program.
In addition to the hard skills you’ll learn throughout the course, we also focus on the practical things you’ll need to land a job. That’s why we launched our Career Prep course to teach you how to write a standout resume and cover letter, create a professional LinkedIn profile, build an impressive GitHub portfolio, and excel in your job search.
And along the way, you’ll have access to tutors who will teach you the most critical and in-demand skills for tech. Plus, you can always reach out to our career coaches, who can not only help you prepare for interviews, but give you the confidence to ace them.
Externships for a standout portfolio
Our partner tech companies turn to TripleTen to address pressing problems, and we gather a team of students to solve these problems. As a result, participating in the externship boosts your LinkedIn profile and impresses your future employers with relevant projects, not to mention reviews from a real company.
