1. What Students Built at Wcoding Dev Bootcamp: Batch 16 Demo Day

This Summer, a group of proud wcoders completed their studies in Fullstack Web Development and showcased what they have built in just a few weeks on wcoding’s Demo Day.

Demo Day is a day at the end of the bootcamp for the students to present their final group project to our senior developers and business team. It is also a great opportunity to apply tech knowledge in a real-life project and learn how programmers work as a team in the development field.  This batch created a short-term housing rental service platform  ‘ROOM-EZ‘ and added member profiles, log-in, booking, and Kakao map search functions.

We are glad to see all students successfully completed the 12-week Dev Bootcamp at wcoding and accomplished an amazing project in a short time. Although graduated, the learning doesn’t stop. This will be the beginning of the journey to becoming a programmer and we look forward to their growth in the future!

2. Python Nights Batch 15 Graduation

Happy graduation to Python Nights for Beginners Batch 15! During the past 2 months, the batch not only learned the fundamental concepts of Python but also touched on the basics of SQL, Sqlite3, API, and Flask. At the end of the course, the students successfully completed a mini project of building up a Music Store.

It’s not an easy thing to keep learning new things after work, but four brave wcoders managed to do it! Well done and congratulations!

3. Dev Nightly: Mid-term Project Showcase

The Dev Nightly class presented their first solo project on building a school website page. The task was to only use HTML & CSS to make the web page, add animations, and design. This was a great opportunity to review the concepts of web fundamentals and master the skills in building websites before diving deeper into JavaScript and other programming languages.

After the presentation, wcoding’s Development Team provided feedback on the code structures and solutions to some technical issues which students had when executing the project. 

4. Welcome, Dev Bootcamp Batch 17!  🙋‍♂️ Korean BBQ Dinner with wcoding Alumni

A new batch of Dev Bootcamp just started this Summer and wcoding hosted a welcome dinner for the newbies!

It was the first dinner gathering with batch 17, but everyone had a lot of fun! It was also a great opportunity for students to get to know their classmates and to understand more about wcoding! We also expect to have different networking events with current students and alumni in the near future. After all, who doesn’t love food and soju?

5. wcoding x CodeSeoul: Over the Hump Workshop Series

Currently, CodeSeoul is hosting a series of workshops on various topics in Tech every Wednesday night at wcoding. The topics include SSH, concurrent React, computer vision and face recognition, and more. All events are free of charge. 

CodeSeoul is our sister NGO which is dedicated to connecting coders of all levels and backgrounds to learn, teach, and build things together. If you want to connect with other tech enthusiasts in Seoul and be more involved in the international community, feel free to join our events! 

6. Intro to Web Dev Batch 2 Graduation

Happy graduation to Intro to Web Dev Batch 2! The students invested their Saturday mornings to learn knowledge in website structure and visual design elements like font, color, and spaces. Although most of the students were first-time coders, in their last class, the batch successfully made a mini project of building a weather app using HTML, CSS, and basic JavaScript! Well done!

7. wcoding and KOREC Launch IT Bootcamp for Japanese Job Market

wcoding is glad to announce a new partnership with KOREC, an talent matching agency that provides employment and training services for Koreans looking to start their careers in Japan!

This year, wcoding and KOREC are going to launch a Korean IT Bootcamp (일본 IT 취업 부트캠프) for talents who seek to launch their careers in Japan. Students can expect to receive 3-month programming education and full career support from wcoding and KOREC. Also, selected students can receive exclusive interview opportunities with Japanese corporates and get 50% tuition back if get hired.

8. A Glimpse to wcoding’s Night Class!

What do you do after work? Watching TV? Workout? Or hang out with friends? Our Python Nights students and Dev Nightly students are utilizing the time to learn new skills!

This week, our Dev Nightly students completed their 3rd project of making a website for a travel blog, while our Python class learned concepts of boolean logic and control flow for data management. 

Most of our night students have other schedules in the daytime, such as teaching English at schools, working in companies, or taking Korean language classes. “It’s a great investment to take the time after work in exchange for some in-demand career skills!” said a student from the night class.
