Course Description:

Students will learn client-side (front-end) technology: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript as well as server-side (back-end) technology such as .NET or Ruby on Rails. At the end of the course, students will be able to create beautiful, fully functional websites backed by databases and server-side applications.

Fundamentals
The first unit of the program will cover fundamental skills for software developers. Students will get to know their development environment and tools while diving into the core web technologies: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

Front-end Frameworks
Going into the second unit, students will get hands-on experience with the latest best practices for modern JavaScript development. Students will learn about building complex interactive applications with React, a popular JavaScript library for building user interfaces.

Back-end Frameworks
In the final unit, students will round out their full-stack toolkit with an exploration of the server- side technologies that power applications on the web and mobile devices. Students will be able to choose a focus, such as Ruby on Rails (and the Ruby programming language) or .NET (and the C# programming language).

Students also receive career services guidance including mentoring and coaching on interview techniques, decoding technical job descriptions, resume writing workshops, and portfolio building.

"Best gift I have ever given myself."

I'm a former firefighter turned small business owner that had zero tech experience before SDG. I first learned about SDG while searching for coding schools in Florida. They were offering a test drive class at the time so I decided that would be a good... Read More

"Life Changing"

I enrolled in SDG with a background in healthcare billing and almost no programming experience. I was always hesitant about pulling the trigger on a bootcamp before; even though I loved tech and everything related to it for some reason I just thought... Read More

Firstly, understand that Suncoast Developers Guild is more than just a Code Bootcamp. As the name implies, it is a GUILD; an association of people for mutual aid or the pursuit of a common goal. That common goal is turning you into a full-stack developer in 12 weeks and there are none better suited to take on that task than the staff at SDG. I couldn’t have asked for a more knowledgable, friendly and supportive group of people to to help me attain my goals and that extends to my classmates as well. You form bonds in this course, you make connections with people all struggling to kickstart their careers and learn new technologies.

And struggle you will! Don’t be fooled by the relatively short duration of the course. You are getting a top notch education which will require to really focus and work hard to grasp all of the material they throw your way, fortunately the staff are excellent and always there to help with anything that you need, and the collaborative learning environment really helps you get over some of those hurdles you’re bound to encounter.

On top of all of that the career support was phenomenal. I never had a LinkedIn profile before but SDG taught me how to market myself as a professional developer and gave me the skills I needed to network and land myself a role as a web developer. Now, I have my dream job working in an industry that I love which was previously inconceivable to me. I still can’t believe how much my life has changed in such a short period of time.

In summary, if you’ve been thinking about getting into tech and were on the fence like me, don’t be. I promise the grass is greener on this side. Suncoast Developers Guild is the best code school in the Tampa Bay Area and is more than worth the price of admission.

"Amazing"

I moved to the St. Pete/Tampa area from Cleveland, Ohio with intentions to go to some sort of bootcamp and I am glad I decided on SDG. I came here knowing no one and no real career path, connections, or deep knowledge in web development. From the very... Read More

This place truly creates a family like bond in 12 weeks. The training i received completely changed my life. Ive met life long friends, entered the career field where i feel like no day is spent just working. Mark (Core Instructor )and Jason(CEO / senior developer) are remarkable people who are insanely knowledgable developers. These two can tech you things you never thought possible while explaining them in ways to help you understand being new to the industry.

Katherine the campus director is the sweetest person who will talk to you about anything while also being a strong developer. She is your go to person with any issue or concerns. Her caring personality shines when you finish the program you start your job search and Katherine is working just as hard as you to land you that first job.

I cant recommend this school enough if you live near the area. It's truly life changing if you put in the time and effort.

"In 12 weeks to change your life!"

I heard about Suncoast Developers Guild from a friend of mine who has been a developer in the area for years. I was working a robot-zombie job and I desperately wanted out of it. I started looking into their program, and their job placement percentage,... Read More

Once I was accepted, I threw myself into the pre-work, because I wanted to be very good at this and I felt like I was starting out behind. I can't express how much fun I had in this program. I went from not being quite sure what html tags were to, 12 weeks later, demonstrating a full-stack app I made exactly to my specifications to local developers. I learned HTML, CSS, Javascript, React, .Net, C#, SQL as well as how to work with Powershell and Github. The head instructor, Mark, jokes that this program is "drinking from a fire hose" and he's not wrong. It's a lot.

I had a great time working through this curriculum but what I loved was the people I got to work with. My cohort was 11 people, which is about the average size. I think we did a very good job of keeping each other on track, working together, and working through the curriculum together. The staff is, simply put, amazing. The instructors are focused and brilliant, and ready to help even if your problem isn't in their wheelhouse. Katherine is the Campus Director, and she is a unicorn. She was a great resource, in addition to Katherine just being fantastic to talk with.

I have happily recommended this program to everyone who has asked me about it since I started and I plan to keep recommending it.

"Amazing Academy"

What sets Suncoast Developers Guild Academy apart from other code camps is the program's willingness and ability to adapt to each cohort's learning style and pace. I found this particularly helpful in moments of struggle, and I know my classmates did... Read More

We made an effort to keep each other afloat during a very intense, fast-paced learning environment. The faculty care--really care--about the well-being and future of their students. You can see this as far up as the top with the school's president, Toni Warren, to each member of their community. When we say, SDG Family, we mean it. I felt like a member of the family before I enrolled because that's the vibe.

You will often find alumni working remotely from the campus, and they are generous to help if you're stuck on a concept or a code line in your project. What's more, people are smart but remain humble and humorous. The projects are unique, challenging and engaging. Mark Dewey, the main instructor, is nominated for the best web developer in Tampa Bay 2019 because he's that good.

Katherine Trammell works all hours to get you employed. Fridays are dedicated to job skills, networking, and setting yourself up for success. Plus, Friday's are half-days arranged for afternoon socials.

SDG was a great experience. An experience that keeps going long after one receives her certificate as a full-stack web developer.
