Over the course of 3 weeks, students will learn the fundamentals of web development (HTML, CSS, JS) and create their own website, from A to Z.
Once a week, students will have the opportunity to visit one of the hottest tech companies in SF like Google, LinkedIn, Airbnb and exciting startups. They will discover what working in a tech company looks like and meet professionals to gain invaluable insights.
Finally, students will have the opportunity to interact and learn with current Holberton students and mentors who are professionals working in the Tech industry.
The Holberton Summer Coding Camp will take place at the Holberton School of Software Engineering.
We are located in San Francisco Financial District, only a block away from public transportation such as Muni and Bart.
Students will be experiencing the financial district, home of many leading Tech companies and startups.
The 3-week summer coding camp is free!
If you cannot afford public transportation fees, we can work with you to provide public transit assistance.
Students can bring their lunchbox (the school has a kitchen and fridge) or grab food at options around the school.
No computer needed! Students will work on brand new Apple iMacs.
