LEARN THE FUNDAMENTALS OF JAVASCRIPT

Sometimes knowing where to start when learning to code can be the hardest part. DecodeMTL is an intensive coding school specializing in training the future generation of developers.


FORMAT

This course runs on Saturdays and Sundays from 12PM to 4PM during 4 consecutive weekends. We teach using a flipped classroom model, structured after Udacity's Intro to JavaScript course.

Students will be required to watch lecture videos before class. Class time will be used for practical exercises. We will go through problem sets, discuss solutions, pair program, and work in teams.

You will also have access to a dedicated Slack channel, where you can ask questions to instructors outside of class time.


WHO SHOULD TAKE THIS COURSE

This course has primarily been created for those concidering applying to our Full-Time Web Development Bootcamp. Our main goal is to teach you the fundamentals of JavaScript and help you pass our admissions interview.


CURRICULUM & DATES

12PM to 4PM Saturdays & Sundays.

We will teach you the absolute basics of programming using JavaScript. This will serve as the foundation as you continue learning and grow as a developer.

On top of class time, there will be a minimum 2 hours of homework (watching lecture videos, problem sets, etc.) per week. (But you should probably not aim to do just the minimum)

May 5 & 6: What is JS, Data Types, Variables, Conditionals
May 12 & 13: Loops
May 19 & 20: Functions
May 26 & 27: Arrays, Objects

FAQS!

Are there any pre-requisites?

This is a beginner level course and extensive or prior programming experience is not required. However, teaching people how to code for the past few years has taught us that a critical aspect of learning is time spent alone getting comfortable with the syntax.

Our instructors are highly knowledgeable, but their main effort is to answer the more complicated and important questions around the nuances of code rather than basic syntax explanation. This is to the benefits of the students as well who can expect to get the most value out of their human instructors while they are in class. Therefore we do require students to complete the CodeCademy JavaScript course before attending the lectures to make sure that the initial shock and awe of seeing code has subsided and more interesting learning can occur.

What do I need to bring with me?

You will need to bring a laptop.

I have more questions before signing up, who can I ask?

Please email our team at hello@decodemtl.com with any questions you may have.
