"Teaching has been incredibly rewarding because of the professional and social impact on students. I look forward to helping more students achieve their potential, and seeing our graduates reach greater heights."
Our bootcamp curriculum focuses on coding concepts (not languages) that match the changing demands of our students and industry needs. Throughout the program, we cover key topics like frontend and backend frameworks, cloud infrastructure, data structures and algorithms.
"Rocket runs a great bootcamp with very intelligent software engineers as teachers! The curriculum was well paced, making learning really fun and giving enough time for concepts to sink in. At the end of it, it provided me with the confidence and necessary skills to transition into a career as a developer, and more importantly, I left with the skills to teach myself new languages and the classical CS concepts."
Our ‘flipped-classroom’ methodology ensures you receive a comprehensive curriculum and access to professional instructors who are ready and excited to answer your questions and guide you further.
"I joined Rocket Academy as a Coding Fundamentals student in 2021 with the intention to explore a possible career path while finishing my last semester in university as a music undergraduate. The flipped-classroom curriculum, which allowed for just enough guided instruction and encouraged independent learning, together with the close-knit community drew me in and I signed up for the part-time bootcamp immediately.
Like anyone else, I had initial doubts and worries about a ‘career-switch’, but I developed confidence through the bootcamp curriculum and advice from instructors with industry experience. I was able to build a strong foundation but also improve on learning new things fast - a skill that I greatly appreciate as a software engineer now. Experience on building projects from ideation to deployment, both individually and as a group, with advice and support from Kai and his team, was also very valuable.
I have taken away much more than I expected from my journey with Rocket Academy - not only technical skills, but also career advice as well as meaningful connections - and will definitely recommend Rocket Academy’s bootcamp to anyone who is keen in becoming a software engineer."
Stanford-quality interview prep and resume review by experienced software engineers. Plus, our network of alumni and instructors from top companies and schools are committed to helping you succeed.
"Rocket's community was one of the main reasons I took the leap of faith to do my career switch with them instead of other bootcamp providers. The camaraderie and energy levels of my course mates and alumni of the other batches really value-added to my learning and always gave me motivation to achieve more with each project, which ultimately helped me land my current job."
