LearnTech Courses

The most casual and accessible of our courses are the Mini-Bootcamps, which are intended to be run as night and weekend programs. Our two core programs are a Computer Science Bootcamp and a Web Development Bootcamp, both of which are built for full time, 3-4 month long Bootcamps. These two Bootcamps combine to form the comprehensive Academy Program, which is 8 months long.

Bootcamps

Our Bootcamp courses are structured as three, one-month labs, with a final project plus career training in the fourth month. Each course balances theory and practice and culminates in structured career training. Interested in attending in Oakland? These courses are running at Port Academy this fall!

Computer Science

Get the best of both worlds by combining theory and practice. Employers love the new hands-on approach of coding bootcamps, but some complain that students miss the deeper understanding of modern computing. To address that, this class focuses on algorithms, data structures, and optimization.

Mini Bootcamps

Our Mini-Bootcamps are designed to be held on the weekends or in the evening, delivering 20 hrs of class time spread across 5 weeks. Students receive hands on support during class as well as working outside of class to complete a final project. Interested in attending in Oakland? These courses are running at Port Academy this summer!

Web

Front End Web Design w/JavaScript

In this front end JavaScript course we'll cover the basics of visual and graphic design, as well as UI / UX and wireframing with Balsamiq Mockups. Then bring the designs to life with HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery and Bootstrap. Finally we'll register a domain, host the website, and cover webmaster basics like SEO and Analytics.

Intermediate Web Dev w/Javascript

Come learn how to design, develop and host front end websites. You’ll get more practice using Bootstrap to whip up professional looking user interfaces, and dive into more JavaScript focusing on jQuery and object oriented design. Then you’ll take on a number of algorithmic coding exercises, culminating in the final project, recreating the classic game Connect 4.

Thinking like a Developer

In Silicon Valley not everyone is a coder, but most people interact with coders and other tech professionals. It does not take long to realize that coders, and engineers in general, speak their own language, and think in very foreign ways. This course is designed to give you a window into that world, and come away able to speak with and think like programmers and techies of all kinds.
