Coding Boot Camp Curriculum

Success as a web developer starts with having a solid grasp of computer science fundamentals. For that reason, the curriculum at The Coding Boot Camp at UCLA Extension includes a deep dive into the basics of data structure and coding.

We are also firm believers of learning by doing, and we know that the best way to establish credibility with potential employers is to demonstrate your skills on real-world projects. That’s why hands-on experience is at the center of our program.
