SYLLABUS

CORE LANGUAGE

Students will learn the core languages of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript through Pluralsight video tutorial modules. These modules are self directed and require ten lines of code to be written for every one hour watched.

GROUP PROJECT

Students will apply learned languages to a group project that they will present at the end of the boot camp. This will require collaboration and exploration in the field of coding. The prompt will be, “Find a problem in the world, and fix it through coding.”

NETWORKING EVENT

Students will attend a day long event where they will attend 20 minute rotation seminars from experts in the field. They will then be able to network and ask questions to business professionals over a luncheon.

APTITUDE TESTING

Students will take aptitude tests before and after each language they learn via Pluralsight. This will provide students and CTS measurable for program effectiveness, areas of improvement, and focus. This aptitude testing is integrated into Pluralsight’s interface.

MENTORS

BUSINESS

Tech businesses in the community like Pluralsight, Xactware, Jive and more, are partnered up with CTS campuses and have a professional mentor over that campus. Duties include one weekly visit to the campus, being a resource for students to better understand the job market, giving examples of real world coding problems and solutions and providing answers to questions and problems students are running into.

INTERN

University students from the University of Utah, SLCC, WSU and more will apply for a paid internship to mentor a CTS campus on a daily basis. Students will benefit from a consistent individual who knows the curriculum and can help students work through daily problems. Duties include daily attendance, a weekly written report on class progress, individual student mentoring, and any other requirements for university credit.

PEER

Peer mentors are assigned to a campus, and are selected from students who graduated CTS in the previous year. They must apply for the position, and show a basic level of proficiency. These students will be there to help pace students, answer questions within their ability, and give insight on how the program works. Peer mentors will also have access to Pluralsights to continue their studies.
