|Description||Holberton School provides a two-year higher-education program made up of three different parts: 9 months of intense training on software engineering fundamentals, a 6-month internship, and 9 months of remote study in a specialization of your choice. During the first 9 months, students are expected to spend as much time as possible together at school. The rest of the curriculum is designed to be done remotely as students are working part-time or full-time at a company or on their own project / startup. The goal of Holberton School is not to teach students a specific programming language or a specific framework, but to teach them problem solving so that they can be successful during their entire career. Students learn whatever they need to learn to accomplish objectives, including low-level and system programming, higher level programming, web and mobile development, system administration and operations, open-source, algorithms, reverse engineering, etc… as well as documentation, communication, community building, etc. At Holberton School, students develop hundreds of small to complex applications, scripts and systems, in many different languages, and on different devices, operating systems, and clouds. Here are a few examples of technical and non-technical projects: Clone Twitter and a service of your choice such as Airbnb, Build a search engine, Code your own shell, Create a computer virus, Contribute to an open source project, Build secure and scalable infrastructures that support your applications, Organize meetups, Interview industry leaders. Student projects are open-sourced online on the project host of their choice.|

The Holberton School is great alternative for Bootcamps ( quite short, and focused on only one technology) and CS College (often too much theoretical, not industry oriented). They offer a 2 year program (9 months on site in SF, then 6 months internship and finally 9 months remote) to trained the next generation of software engineers. They also help us to find an internship or job in the industry (we are trained with specific exercises, and with advices from expert in HR for tech ).
The education is project based, there are no formal teachers. But the students and the team are much closer because there is only 30 students per batch and the projects are peer-reviewed. Moreover they offer something unique: a very strong community of industry experts. Many projects and Meet-ups are gi...Read more
Holberton School is not like any other school out there right now. We are a project based, peer learning school. It's not a full 4 year university, and it's so much more than a bootcamp. The best part of Holberton it is geared towards getting its students industry ready. Here we focus on the foundations of software engineering, the goal is to get a full picture of the industry before we move into specialization. That means that we get experience in low level and high level programing, front end and back end, system administration, deep learning, and so much more. A lot of bootcamps are focusing on specific frameworks or languages these days - the only issue with that approach is that it does not take into account how quickly this industry moves forward and changes. I you only know one l...Read more
