More about Hackbright Academy: Hackbright Academy is an intensive software engineering school for women. Highly driven and accomplished women come to Hackbright to "pivot" in their careers.

They complete a full-time (12 week) or part-time (26 week), in-person, 500-hour boot camp rooted in the programming language of Python with the focus of learning full-stack web application development. Students learn JavaScript as a secondary programming language as well as HTML/CSS and the templating language Jinja. They learn software development techniques and technologies such as AJAX, *nix command-line, and how to work with APIs such as Google Maps and Twitter.

They learn the fundamentals of Computer Science data structures such as linked lists, dictionaries and trees, as well as object-oriented design. They also learn the fundamentals of basic networking concepts and how the internet works including the HTTP internet protocol. Techniques used in the industry such as pair programming, Git and version control, and deploying to cloud services such as Amazon Lightsail are also components of the program.

Students learn how to write unit-tests, integration tests, and functional tests for their code, and many also explore Test-Driven Development techniques. To manage database structures, they learn SQL. In object-oriented design they learn how to master Object Relational Mapping techniques with the SQLAlchemy library. Lastly, they use a virtual machine technology called Vagrant in order to access a consistent development environment running Ubuntu, a distribution of the Linux operating system. Can’t believe they learn all this in 12 intensive weeks?

Be our guest, meet the engineers, learn about what they've accomplished, and enjoy the evening!
