At the end of the course, the students successfully completed a mini project of building up a pizza-size editor.

It’s not an easy thing to keep learning new things after work, but our brave wcoders managed to do it and upgraded their tech skills through consistent efforts and dedication. Well done and congratulations! 

3. Dev Bootcamp Batch 19’s Graduation & Demo Day

After an intensive 12-week journey, our web development students showcased their final group project and the skills they learned during the bootcamp on our Demo Day.

Inspired by the team’s experiences of looking for jobs in Korea, they built a career-matching platform ‘Waygukwin‘ to help English speakers in Korea find an ideal position based on users’ technical skills, visa status, education backgrounds…etc. 

After the presentation, our alumni, developers, and attendees gave insightful feedback and advice from both technical and business perspectives. It was indeed a great opportunity for the students to showcase the technologies they learned and experience how a team works in a real IT working environment. 

We’re proud of what these graduates have accomplished, and we know they have the skills and determination to succeed. Congratulations to the graduates, and best of luck in their future endeavors!

Our brave coders from Dev Bootcamp (12-Week Full-Time program) just completed their very first front-end project of building a school website!

For our Bootcamp students, being able to apply the coding knowledge to an actual IT project and explain the codes is an important step of becoming a real developer.

The opportunity to showcase what they have learned in front of our senior developers and received feedback from our alumni and dev team is definitely valuable for our students. We were also glad to see their progress in such a short time! 

Next, they will work on a bigger and more functional group project by adding more back-end features as well. We look forward to their final presentation on the Demo Day soon! 

1.  Wcoding Dev Bootcamp Batch 17: Students Show Creativity on Their First Web Project

The best practice to develop your web development skills is to get your hands dirty and create a website yourself! Last month, during our Dev Bootcamp Batch 17, students presented their solo projects for a school website. 

We are glad to see each student develop the website with their own characteristics and creativity! This is the first time they connect everything the Bootcamp has covered so far and build a coding project from the ground up with the concepts they have learned over the past month and dive into complexities. 

They will work on more projects using more advanced technologies and collaborate in a team to accomplish bigger tasks in the next phase!

2. Wcoding Dev Bootcamp Batch 17 Demo Day & Graduation

3. Dev Bootcamp Batch 15 Demo Day and Graduation 🧑‍💻🎓

Batch 15 has successfully completed their 12-week Fullstack Intensive Bootcamp and presented their final project that they’ve developed over the course.

Congratulations to wcoding Dev Bootcamp – Batch 15 graduates!

On their last day of the course, the students presented their final project ‘ProPhoto’ to showcase what they have learned during their 3 months course of the intensive bootcamp. ProPhoto is a platform for photographers to share their works and for everyone to download or buy high-quality photos online.   

What’s special about this project is that the platform is using its own virtual coins as the main currency for trade. The team also worked on log-in, member profiles, photo uploads, search functions, and developed an online payment system for virtual coins.  

We are truly glad to see how far this group of students has come in just a few months. The Demo Day was also a great opportunity for the batch to learn how to turn ideas into plans, use codes to turn plans into actual products, and provide IT solutions for real-world problems.

4. Congratulations to Our Newest ‘Weekend Class’ Graduates! 🎊

The fresh coders from our ‘Intro to Web Dev’ Course successfully created their very first IT project on the last day of their 2 months course. 

Congratulations to our brave ‘challengers’ from the weekend Intro to Web Dev!  🎊

Have you ever imagined how capable you can be just by investing a few hours a week in learning to code? The brave coders from our weekend class are showing you how!

Most of the students in the batch come from non-IT backgrounds and have ZERO experience in coding. After 8 weeks of learning for 2 hours every Saturday, they were able to build a simple but impressive weather app using HTML, CSS, and a bit of JavaScript! 

One of the graduates commented in the course review “It’s not easy to maintain your work schedule and learn new skills at the same time, but it feels like a team when learning with your classmates and it definitely motivates you a lot.”
