Learn to code while making a social impact | Dedicated

Programming for Good

Knowing how to code or understanding the workflow of coding is an essential professional skill for the 21st century.

Jeff Immelt, board chair at General Electric says, “It doesn’t matter whether you are in sales, finance or operations,” everyone will need this skill.

What if you could learn to code while making a social impact?

The Reboot Labs Bootcamp not only teaches its students how to code. It provides a staged experiential learning curriculum that reinforces lessons with real-world, digital project management.

No prerequisites are necessary to enter Reboot’s 10 week, 10hrs per week, course. The course is designed for professionals of all ages.

It is intended for anyone who would like to learn how to code or who would like to communicate more effectively with web development teams that they manage, hire, or work with.

After the initial five weeks in the classroom, students are mentored through a self-guided process of building a website from scratch for a 501c3 (non-profit) or social impact project.

Students are paired with clients by the instructor and reinforce their learning through doing while being guided and supervised by the course instructor. All students leave the course with a knowledge of coding basics as well as a self-built website they can use for their professional portfolio.

The Reboot Labs Bootcamp was started by Nate Cooper. Nate has been training beginners to code for over a decade. He has taught at corporations like Apple as well as academic institutions like the School for Visual Arts (SVA) and the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT).

In 2014, No Starch Press Published Nate’s book, Build Your Own Website: A Comic Guide to HTML CSS and WordPress. The book, a comic book and illustrated guide for learning how to code has been a best-seller on Amazon in the category Programming > CSS and has been translated into Brazilian Portuguese, Czech, Korean, and Polish. Nate will be the course instructor for the September and October bootcamps.
