Holberton Summer Coding Camp

Summer coding camp

Over the course of 3 weeks students will learn the basics of programming.

Visits to the hottest tech companies (think: Google, LinkedIn, Airbnb) as well as some of the most exciting startups in San Francisco. They will discover what working in a tech company looks like in addition to meeting professionals to gain invaluable insights.

Students will have the opportunity to interact with current Holberton students and mentors who are professionals working in the tech industry.

Dates

July 9th - July 27th

Curriculum

HTML: Students will learn the fundamentals of web development. Using HTML, CSS and Javascript, they will create their own website, from A to Z.


iOS: The iOS curriculum is for our more advanced students. Students will be able to build their first apps, learn the foundations of software engineering using Swift, understand how to think though the UX of project from start to finish, and as a final project, create their very own app culminating in a showcase on the last day of camp for family, friends, mentors and the like.

This is a fast pace curriculum, and students should come to camp with ideas of an app to build. No formal training is required as a prerequisite, but this not a class for total beginners. We are looking for students who can demonstrate a thirst for challenge and have tinkered with some aspect of software engineering in the past.


All campers will work on a final project that they’ll be able to present at the end of the three week camp. Additionally, each camper will have the opportunity to attend a tech company site visit.
