Develop Me’s Ruby Bootcamp is a hands on, project driven, intensive 12 week course in Ruby web development. You’ll get to grips with all the technologies, tools, processes and skills you need to embark on a career as a Ruby developer – whilst putting together a portfolio of real world project work; working in industry on a work placement and making some great contacts along the way.
All of this will put you in the perfect position to get a job as a junior developer straight from graduation. We’ll even help you make that transition and put you in touch with our partner companies that are hiring at the time.
Rails is a web application development framework written in the Ruby language.
It is designed to make programming web applications easier by making assumptions about what every developer needs to get started.
It is popular for building web apps especially in start-ups, and was used by Twitter, Soundcloud, Goodreads, and Kickstarter.
Not only will we teach you all the tech skills you’ll need to embark on your career as a Ruby on Rails Web Developer, we’ll also provide you with a whole heap of career support, advice and guidance along the way too.
This support will come in a variety of forms including:
- Work placement – a 1-3 month long paid work placement in industry with one of our partners will give you the chance to put all you’ve learnt into practice and help cement your knowledge and skills harnessed over the previous 12 weeks
- CV workshops & interview advice
- Career guidance and information on the possibilities and opportunities in the tech sector
- Development of a portfolio of project work
- Networking opportunities with both the local tech community & employers
- Help and support in applying for and securing your first role upon graduation (and onwards for as long as you like)
The Coding Fellowship is a highly intensive programme which requires a big commitment from our students. To learn everything you’ll need, to the level required, to head straight into industry upon graduation you’ll have to put a lot of time and effort in. We’ll do our bit and teach you everything you need to know and provide as much support as possible, but we’ll need you to do your bit too!
You can expect to be onsite from 9-5:30 every weekday involved in a variety of lectures, workshops and project work.
Outside of this you will probably find yourself spending a few hours working with your fellow students on further study activities – on your own at home practicing what you’ve learnt or working on projects – at evening events, industry meetups and hackathons.
It will be an intense ride! But we hope it will be an extremely rewarding one too.
We promise it won’t all be hard work though. You’ll be surrounded by a group of likeminded students all going through the same experience. There will be A LOT of collaborative project work and plenty of opportunities for fun along the way. Bristol is an incredible city with a strong and very welcoming tech community.
Our instructors are all specialists in their fields and actively work in industry as professional developers, software engineers and technical project managers.
This experience and continued participation in their respective sectors allow our instructors to remain up to date with their skills and accordingly what they pass on to you remains current and highly relevant.
Years of industry experience means our instructors have seen it all. Having them on hand is incredibly valuable for coders who are just starting out.
