Like San Diego Coding School, Nucamp offers flexible web development and software engineering bootcamps with in-person and online components. People who are looking to take their courses onsite in San Diego can choose from 2 tracks: front end web & mobile development (17 weeks) and full stack web & mobile development (22 weeks). Those in the front end track, which is project-based, learn how to use in-demand tools such as bootstrap, React, React Native, Microsoft Visual Studio Code, and Git & GitHub. Besides teaching the same material as the front end track, the full stack program covers important tools and concepts in server-side development, including back-end with NodeJS, Express, databases with MongoDB, and storage. Both tracks include an online component. Students spend 6-14 hours per week working through recorded lectures and exercises at their own pace. For the in-person part of the program, students meet Saturday from 9am-1pm to discuss projects with peers and instructors. After completing coursework, Nucamp grads are invited to take the bootcamp’s 6-week career development course, which covers the nuts and bolts of resume building, LinkedIn optimization, and interview prep.
