Jona learned to code because six years ago he wanted to make a Thing. That’s also why he writes things other than code, like words. He’s a big fan of words, in fact, and is also a long-time Lion King aficionado. On the same note, he’s worked at such places as IBM, Amobee, and Gartner – all of which helped him understand the Circle of [a Coder’s] Life. Likewise, he enjoys playing frisbee – which is circular as well.

Where will the coding bootcamp take place?

The coding bootcamp will take place in a gorgeous location in Panama.

What is included in the program?

As the coding bootcamp will take place in a gorgeous location across Panama, you can leave the planning to us. You will be required to book only the international flight to and from Panama. We already took care of everything else.

Our basic package includes accommodation at Selina’s location, Co-work spaces booked for us throughout the entire time (coffee included), transportations between airports to Selina’s locations and back, Internal flights from one location to another if needed (longest flight 1h 20m). Would you like to add some extra activities? Upgrade your room? – No worries, before completing payment we’ll be able to tailor the order to your needs.

What practical skill sets can I expect to have upon completion of the course?

Our curriculum is based on the most in-demand technical skills that employers look for in a junior web developer.  By the end of this intensive bootcamp, you will be able to:

  • Write HTML, CSS, and JavaScript that displays as intended in modern browsers
  • Develop a dynamic front-end to your application using a modern framework used to create single-page apps, such as Angular or React
  • Consume web APIs from third-party sites
  • Write secure applications and deploy them to cloud services like Heroku
  • Collaborate within a team using an agile development workflow and widely-accepted collaboration practices using Git

We teach Node, MongoDB and SQL. You will be able to build interactive websites from end-to-end (client, server, and DB). Most importantly, we provide you with the tools and skills to think like a developer and quickly pick up new languages and skills on your own.

You will also participate in hackathons, group projects and mentoring and a final project presentation.

Who is this course for?

Employers don’t just hire based on someone’s skills and qualifications, but also on their personality, work ethic and interpersonal skills. For this reason we accept students who are not only strong analytical thinkers, but also are passionate, humble and willing to work hard.

What is the course commitment?

The Elevation Coding Bootcamp is 12 weeks long and full-time. Actual time spent on the course consists of class on Monday – Friday from 9am – 5pm.
There is an additional ~20 hours of homework per week.

What does a typical day look like?

Since our coding bootcamp is taking place in Panama, part of the idea is to enjoy what each location has to offer. A typical day may start with a yoga class or a surf lesson. We’ll then meet in class for an interactive lecture about a particular skill or topic. You will then read through the course curriculum with a partner and practice your newly learned skills by working on a coding project. Our Coding Bootcamp support team is there to offer help and guidance every step of the way.

What language is this course taught in?

English. It’s an international program, we’ll be meeting people from different places around the world.

What kind of jobs do Coding Bootcamp graduates get?

Coding Bootcampers excel in both small and large companies. The kinds of jobs graduates get vary, and can range from Junior Front-End and Back-End Web Developers to QA positions. It all depends on the needs of the organization and your desire and capabilities.

Can I really get a job as a junior developer after this program?

We can’t guarantee you a job, no one can. We provide all students with career development and placement assistance. The demand for web developers is always growing, and we do our best to prepare our students for careers as junior full-stack web developers.

What if I’m a beginner and can’t keep up with the pace?

Don’t worry! We have set up our bootcamp to ensure every student gets personalized attention and support. You’ll have our amazing Coding Bootcamp Instructor and TA available for you there at all time. Additionally, we’ll be working with a flexible syllabus, that will allow us to feel the class and adjust our lessons accordingly if needed, in real time. 

Will I have to learn something before the course?

Yes. Every student must complete the Pre-Work at least 1 week before the start date. Completing the pre-work is very important for preparing us to day 1 of the coding bootcamp. Lack of that pre-work might result in having a hard time mastering the course content and completing our coding bootcamp. If you’re having trouble with the pre-work or require extra help, we could offer free Pre-Work online meetups held from our Tel Aviv campus (In English).

All information regarding the Pre-Work meetups will be emailed to you before the course begins.

What kind of project will I work on?

Students usually work on a web app. Here are some examples:
