Courses

Software Engineer

Cost: $8,900
Duration: 46 weeks
Locations: Online
Course Description:

Over this 10-month course, you'll acquire the skills you need to become an excellent software engineer. You'll work on six real, industry-level projects: a webpage made with HTML & CSS; an adaptive website; an interactive social network; a website built with React, a back-end server using Node.js; and a full-fledged independent web application. From the very beginning, we teach our students not only how to code properly, but also how to work with all the professional tools used in the industry — learn as you work, work as you learn. Using this knowledge, you'll fill your GitHub account with polished projects that meet industry standards and catch the attention of employers.

In addition to educational projects, you will work on case studies for real companies, add professional-level projects to your portfolio, and get a chance to receive recommendations for LinkedIn.

Practicum bootcamp stands on the quality of the programs; if you don't secure a position within six months of graduating, we'll refund your money — guaranteed.

You will get:
- A comprehensive curriculum covering both hard and soft skills

Theory and practice will take place on our interactive platform. You'll learn how to implement page layouts, code in JavaScript, build user interfaces with React, develop website infrastructure, and debug code. You'll also learn how to communicate with coworkers and clients effectively.

Each course is capped by an independent project, and at the end of the program, you'll complete a project incorporating everything you've studied.

Project submission deadlines will come every two to three weeks. To keep up, you should be prepared to devote about 20 hours per week to your studies.

- Tutor support and code reviews

Practicum’s tutors work in leading tech companies, so they understand the industry and its best practices like the back of their hands. They make regular group video calls with students. And you can always ask for one-on-one meetings if you need help on a project or are seeking career advice.

A professional software engineer will check each line of your code to make sure it works the way it's supposed to and conforms to industry best practices.

- Career Prep course and Career Acceleration program

Students will have the opportunity to enroll in our free Career Prep course and Career Acceleration program. Participants will learn how to write a standout resume and a cover letter, create LinkedIn and GitHub profiles, make a professional portfolio, and other employment pro tips. There are one-to-one sessions with a career coach to develop a job search strategy, and 4+ free hours of mock interviews to gain the confidence to nail a real one. We stay in touch during the first two months of employment, to make sure you are confident in your new position.

Every big module has a project which is reviewed by experienced professionals, The review you get really helps to learn better. It was really helpful to me. All the projects and modules need to be completed within the timeline which helps you to make daily learning habits. It has more than 15 projects for Data Scientists track which is the best part.

Online biweekly webinars are learning with fun, The instructor was a former data scientist. He always shares tips and tricks from his experience.

This Bootcamp was a complete package that you don't want to miss, one of the best learning experience.

"A Supportive, Rigorous, and Hands-on Bootcamp"

I'm currently finishing up the Data Analysis track (roughly 6 months to complete) as an Alpha tester of which I have found to be a highly positive experience. The program is innovative in its bi-weekly sprint-like teaching approach in which students have... Read More

As a newbie in the tech field I was lost with the number of resources available. My background is in psychology but I wanted to learn how to code to augment my research skills as I aspire to be a data analyst in the tech or nonprofit sector. Being a new field to me I felt really lost about what the whole data analysis process looks and among many other questions. I decided to take many courses on other platforms (ie. Coursera, Udacity, DataQuest) but TBH most of them only taught me the basics and didn't get me an in-depth understanding of the field nor advanced my data analysis skills. Thankfully, I came across the Practicum by Yandex Data Analysis program of which has met and surpassed that need! The courses are tailored to gradually develop the needed skills in data analysis (ie. systems thinking, python, asking great questions etc.) as well as to help you get a more nuanced understanding of what the field will entail (webinar, projects, etc.).

All that to say that I'm very impressed with and happy to be apart of Practicum's Data Analysis program! I have no question to believe that the other programs that they teach (web development, data science etc.) are of the same, if not greater quality. Speaking from my personal experience, if you're truly looking to develop the necessary skills and understanding to become an effective data analyst then this is the program for you.
