We're running a remote special edition of our full-length coding bootcamp starting on 10th August 2020. Applications are open. Find out more here.

Our Developer Pathway courses are postponed, but don't worry! You can still apply, attempt our Entry Challenge and secure your place. We will still be online to help you with your application and to help you get started coding and provide support. Find out more here.
The Developer Pathway is a 12-week course divided into four 3-week blocks.

If you need more time to consolidate your skills, you'll have the opportunity to repeat any block immediately, with bespoke support, at no additional cost.

Learning to code with us

Support from the day you apply

We'll help you get started with code for free, and give you access to unique content to help you navigate your first few weeks.

You'll be invited to laid-back, in-person support sessions to help you master the basics and secure your place at Northcoders. These are the perfect way to get a feel for life on a coding bootcamp and make sure it's right for you.

You'll also have access to our online support network with tutors on hand to answer your questions.

Fundamentals (3 Weeks)

First things first. We’ll give you a solid understanding of the fundamentals and best practices of programming. We'll cover test-driven development, pair programming, object-oriented programming and a range of other core tools and workplace practices through the medium of JavaScript.

Back End (3 Weeks)

JavaScript is the only language that can be run both on the front and back end. Next, we show you how we can use Node.js to run code for the back end, and focus on ways of dealing with asynchronous programming. We'll look at APIs and databases, and cover Express and SQL. We’ll also work with some pretty cool third-party data sets and APIs, and help you deploy applications to the cloud!

Front End (3 Weeks)

It's front end next - you'll learn all about the DOM and how to make accessible websites with semantic HTML and responsive CSS, and we'll introduce you to UX. React is the most in-demand front-end framework. We'll teach you to use it in-depth - but we don't stop there. We'll introduce you to its key peripheral technologies, and teach you all about testing front-end applications.

Project Phase (3 Weeks)

There's no better way to consolidate and extend your knowledge, and prove what you can do, than to get hands on with a real, green-field team project. With previous groups exploring Virtual Reality, Machine Learning, image recognition and blockchain (to name a few!); what you create is limited by your imagination.
