Short Course

Join our two-week evening online Intro to Programming (Coding Bootcamp Prep Course) and gain all the skills you need to start your programming journey.

Details

The course is designed to help you get the most out of our coding bootcamps - both Web Development Coding Bootcamp and Data Science Coding Bootcamp. However, if you're not (yet) looking to immerse yourself fully into programming, you can also take this course on its own.

In 8 online evening sessions, we’ll cover topics such as the bigger picture of software development, setting up your development environment, basics of structuring and styling a website, core programming concepts, and best practices for working with your computer efficiently. By the end of the 2-week program, you will have learnt coding fundamentals, developed your technical communication skillset and refined your problem-solving skills.

Intro to Programming (Coding Bootcamp Prep Course) is a live class, taught real-time by our instructors. You’ll have time to ask questions and interact with the instructors, plus have a chance to get feedback on your code. You’ll also meet and get to know other people at the same point on their coding journeys.

Over the span of just two weeks, we will cover the building blocks of web development for you to be successful in your future coding bootcamp experience. Self-prep for a coding bootcamp can be difficult without guidance and this course was designed for beginners to efficiently build their skills step by step.

The course is built around Coding Bootcamp Praha’s active learning approach, which emphasizes practical skill-building and prepares students for accelerated bootcamp learning. Diving into a full-time coding bootcamp can feel intimidating, so building a solid foundation before you begin a bootcamp may be reassuring. Or if you simply prefer extra practice or picking up new skills, the course is also be a good option for you.
