How is the course structured? ​

Our 15-week Full-Stack Web Development bootcamp is split into two sections:

Live online learning

12 weeks

For the first 12 weeks you’ll be learning live online from wherever you are, honing your coding skills in intructor-led lectures, group projects and allocated self-study sessions.

Learning in Berlin

3 weeks

You’ll round off your final 3 weeks at our WBS CODING CAMPUS Berlin, where you’ll meet the other students from your study group. During this time, you’ll work on your final project, explore the thriving Berlin tech scene with your course mates and take advantage of our specialist career coaching designed to optimize your future employment prospects.

So, what does a typical day at WBS CODING SCHOOL look like?

Morning drive

You’ll be fresher and more focused at the start of the day. So grab yourself a coffee and get immerse into the chosen topic of the day. 
 

Pre-lunch energy rush

Your coffee should have kicked in by now – so what better time to tackle live coding, applying all the skills you’ve learnt or attend lectures with your instructor?

Afternoon exchange

Fed and watered, you’ll be all set to dive into stimulating teamwork projects, programming in either pairs or groups.

 

End of day reflection

It’s been a busy day. Time for one last lecture before reviewing everything you’ve covered and buckling down to some consolidation exercises.

Methodology

Why spend time and money commuting, when you can learn from the comfort of your own couch?

Interactive remote learning is the future, from live instructor-led lectures and team coding challenges to one-to-one sessions. Our Full-Stack Web & App Development course is specially designed to immerse you in the whole web developer experience – from wherever you are.

And yes, you’ll have access to all your lectures online too via the learning platform. Thanks to our awesome livestream facility, you’ll also be able to interact with your course-mates every day in a virtual classroom environment. Key features like video and voice messaging and screen-sharing will enable you to exchange thoughts, while following your instructor.

The state-of-the-art communication tool not only facilitates regular collaboration via Chat but also promotes mutual learning support among students.

At WBS CODING SCHOOL, we fully recognize the importance of community-driven learning. And that’s why you’ll spend the last 3 weeks of your course at our WBS CODING CAMPUS Berlin along with other students from your group. Here, you’ll collaborate on your final project, which will bolster your project-portfolio.

But it’s not all work, work, work! You’ll also have the chance to explore Berlin’s dynamic start-up scene and make the most of expert career coaching.

Mentoring

Learning software development might seem daunting. But when the going gets tough, there is always someone on hand to help. Each group of 15 students benefits from two dedicated expert instructors, who are there to support you whenever you need them.

Pre-course preparation

Worried about getting left behind? Don’t be. Our self-study pre-course material has been carefully crafted to get you up to speed on the basics of web development – all on your own. The tasks will enable you to grasp the fundamentals of programming languages like HTML, CSS and JavaScript and should take you roughly between 20-40 hours to complete.

Entry Requirements​

WBS CODING SCHOOL does not require applicants to have any prior experience in web development. You just need to be highly motivated, eager to learn and over 18. We believe everyone has to start somewhere.
