  • Let go of the fantasy of attending a three-month bootcamp and returning as an excellent coder.... There's a reason there's a four-year curriculum dedicated to learning how to program, so assuming you'll go to a three-month bootcamp and instantly become an outstanding coder isn't going to happen

  • Here are some crucial keywords to look for in a front-end bootcamp: JQuery and JavaScript (Not only just HTML and CSS)

  • JavaScript is a difficult language to learn, and it's one of those that weeds people out, so you should devote as much time as possible to learning it (JS Framework)

  • Git is something you can learn on your own, so it's not a deal killer, but it would be strange if they didn't use any sort of version control, because every organization employs some sort of version control. You can also host your projects there so that potential employers can see what you've been up to

  • Projects with a focus on team-based projects must be of high quality

  • But I'm talking about high-quality projects that will provide you a decent foundation to expand on after you leave the bootcamp or to showcase on your CV as something that connects together many concepts and things you'll be studying throughout the curriculum

  • When it comes to job hunting, testing, and debugging, your projects will be your selling point

  • Let's look at the back-end curriculum, which includes python, node.js, and ruby on rails

  • Python is the most beginner-friendly programming language

  • The curriculum frameworks for whatever language you're using Diango (Python use) should be the chosen back-end language or JavaScript that use node.js

  • Restful APIs are another one of those things where you don't need to know what it means right now; all you need to know is that it's on the curriculum and that you know how to completely develop, use, and describe what it implies

  • Any database, whether sequel or not It's almost a requirement that they teach you how to work with databases

  • Data Structure is a subject that you should know like the back of your hand.
