Developers in Berkseides web development industry have the opportunity to take the next step in their career by working at Bootcamp Berks.
The program is an eight-week bootcamp aimed at web developers who want to explore the benefits of using Django for their applications.
Participants will learn Django development and manage their team at bootcamp.
There is no fee to take part in the program, but participants can book up to four people per group for up to six days per week.
There are three days per day to complete tasks such as coding, development, and marketing.
Students are expected to complete a minimum of 50 hours of work per week during the bootcamp period.
“It’s a really great opportunity to get your foot in the door,” said co-founder and CEO of Bootcamp, Paul Pugh.
“The curriculum covers a wide range of skills, and there’s a great opportunity for those with a keen interest in coding to get into it.”
There are six classes, with three courses per week, and students can work as a team, on their own or in a team environment.
“They’ll learn a lot about the Django community, and they can start learning from someone who’s already working in the Django world,” said Pugh, adding that the program also helps to bridge the gap between developers and those in other industries.
“We see it as a great way to bridge a gap in the industry and get those skills in the hands of developers who might otherwise not be able to get those hands-on experience,” he added.
While the Bootcamp program is not for everyone, there are many benefits.
Pugh believes the program is more than just a coding bootcamp; it’s also an opportunity to learn a new language.
“People in our industry have been using Django in their everyday life for years,” he said.
“With Django, we’re not only using it for coding, but also as a front end development framework.”
For people who want a more hands-off approach to development, we see this as a good opportunity to give them a little bit of a taste of that.
