How To Prepare For A Coding Bootcamp

If you are planning to take a coding bootcamp, there are things you should consider before your first day at camp. If you enrolled on a Web Development bootcamp then you can apply these tips.

  1.     Go to FreeCodeCamp.com and do everything until advance algorithm & scripting.

FreeCodeCamp is an open source community that can help you to learn code. There’s no need to do advance algorithm and scripting on this community in order to be ready for bootcamp. But if you have more time, then do it. That will make you more ready for bootcamp. With FreeCodeCamp you can learn skills like JavaScript.

  1.       Get additional practice with html/css by creating a personal portfolio, and cloning websites that you like

After learning on FreeCodeCamp you can try making your own good projects and put it on your portfolio. This can help you practice what you’ve learned and easily apply it on bootcamp. You can also try to clone a website you like.

  1. Take an online AngularJS course. I like Teamtreehouse's course much more than codeschool or codecademy.

After learning and applying JavaScript, HTML and CSS, take an online AngularJS course. One of the good online AngularJS courses is Teamtreehouse. You can learn web design and coding from more than 1000 videos on this course. Here's an affiliate link to Team Treehouse: http://engineeredtruth.com/TTH

  1. You don't need to learn bootstrap

You don’t really need to learn bootstrap before attending bootcamp but it will be helpful for you to easily make a responsive website.

  1. You should absolutely learn code before going to a bootcamp to get the most out of it.

Before attending a bootcamp, it is important that you already know the basics because if you don’t it will be hard for you to learn advanced skills. Learning the basics while on the bootcamp will only eat your time that will result to learning few skills and waste of money and time.

Why is Codeworks is one of the most elite coding bootcamps in Europe?

Which is good for the students so they will learn both at the same time.

2. Codeworks’ acceptance rate is only 4% because of their difficult JavaScript entrance examination. The company is giving free JavaScript classes every Saturday in order for the interested students to pass the examination.

Princess Castle Orphanage in Guatemala: WorkPlayLove (non-profit)

It is estimated there are 153 million orphans around the world according to UNICEF. Many of them are living in orphanages or on the streets. All of them are in need of intensive care. From this, over 370,000 orphans are from Guatemala. Most of these children are product of extreme poverty and abuse. Good thing there are organizations where they can call a safe place and one of these is WorkPlayLove.

Kim, Mike and Steve Meila have been business partners with Legalshield for almost 2 decades. Upon arriving at the Hogar Miguel Magone orphanage in Guatemala, they realized that this is what they had been looking for. A place where they can support and give love to children. Hogar Miguel Magone is an orphanage housing 65 boys. The partners were told by the orphanage's directors that they are planning to build another orphanage for girls next to the boys orphanage. With this, brothers and sisters will never have to split up. This led them to open the second orphanage called Maria Auxiliadora Hogar. After 4 years, with the help of volunteers, it is now housing 35 girls who are all excited because of its princess theme. Maria Auxiliadora Hogar is the only castle orphanage in the world. These girls will never be worried about their safety, food and health.

If you want to help these kids on their daily costs including their food, medicine, teachers and psychiatrists, there is a program called Hogar Hero where you can donate. Your donation will not only cover one child but all the girls and the boys as well.

You can visit their website at workplaylove.org

I hired my social media manager and blogger from OnlineJobs.ph and prefer it over Upwork and Freelancer.org. The main reason is that Upwork and Freelancer take a percent cut throughout the duration of the contract. While with OnlineJobs.PH, I just have to sign up as a PRO Member for a month then once I find my employee can pay them directly with Paypal. I cancel my PRO membership until the next time I need an employee.
