Course Overview

E

Team Lift Off

During stage one, you’ll get to know the team of students joining you at MCS, what your days will look like, and a birds-eye perspective on how incremental programming works.

When you’re done with Week One, you’ll have a solid understanding of programming from its highest levels and be able to make real changes to code (it’s ok to use your cheat sheet!).

Front-End Development

During stage two, you’ll learn the most popular tools and technologies behind some of the world’s greatest web companies – including HTML5, CSS3, Sass, jQuery JavaScript, React and more.

This will be your programming foundation.

Back-End Development

To be a tried-and-true full stack developer you will need to learn how to build and manage your own servers. Stage three will teach you the most popular backend JavaScript language: Node.js

Paired Programming

Things start to heat up during stage four. You and a partner will program a project from scratch using what you have learned.

You and your partner will be given a real problem Montana businesses face that software can solve – carrying responsibility for both delivering the product and communicating with the client.

Nobody will ever give you exact specs for their software – so you’ll learn how to ask the right questions, which will enable you to build the right product.

Team Development

Stage five has, as a capstone assignment, you will be placed into teams tasked with creating your own web apps. It’s up to you and your team to brainstorm what this app will do, how will it function, and who will it help – then build it.

This is where you will become truly valuable to an employer. You will learn how to put it all together as a team-oriented, full stack developer capable of seeing issues globally and diving deep to fix any bugs.

Financing

Montana Code School works hard to provide its students with financing options that make sense.  We are excited to partner with Missoula Federal Credit Union for students who need help financing their tuition. These Montana Code School specific loans vary in rates dependent on individual credit score, history and how much you borrow. The plans are affordable and convenient. Please contact us for details.

Questions?

Housing

Montana Code School requires that attendees find housing off-campus. We are unable to provide on-campus housing at this time. However, we expect that you will find the cost of living in Missoula to be very affordable. We are working with local property managers to provide discounts and month-to-month options for admitted students.
