Get ready for the bootcamp

Our Web Development Course is very intense. To save time and nail it from the beginning, our students must complete the PrepWork on our custom-built platform before starting the bootcamp. This work takes around 60 hours and gives our students a basic knowledge of:

  • Web 101, how the web works
  • Terminal basic commands
  • Git basic commands
  • HTML / CSS foundations
  • Javascript foundations
  • Tech workflows and tools in a startup

Developer tools & workflow

Work with the right developer tools and workflow. Learn the basics of the command line, use a code text editor and install Ruby with a version management tool. Get familiar with most useful developer packages and learn how to version your code with git and push it on Github.

Programming Basics in Ruby

Write programs manipulating variables, loops, conditions and data structures (Array and Hash). Detect text patterns with Regular Expressions and start parsing data from structured files (CSV, JSON, XML, HTML) fetched using web-scraping or by building requests to JSON APIs.

Software Architecture

Structure your software following Object-Oriented principles. Learn the Model-View-Controller pattern in-depth (most common application design pattern) by coding several MVC softwares from scratch. You will have to code everything on your own, even simulating your database storing data in CSV files.

Relational Database, SQL & ORM

Learn to design a relational database schema and to build structured queries to your database with SQL. Build simple CRUD queries (Create, Read, Update, Delete) or advanced JOIN queries. Learn to connect your database to your ruby software with an ORM (Object Relational Mapping) called Active Record.

Frontend Development

Build your web pages following atomic design principles and code your own UI kit of web components & layouts by applying the latest CSS techniques. Build pages with an adaptive design thanks to media queries and learn to quickly prototype a web app with Bootstrap 4.0 and its responsive grid system.

ES6

Learn ES6, your second programming language after ruby, to add dynamic behaviors to your website or update pages without reloading thanks to AJAX. Understand JavaScript fundamental concepts and learn to use all the necessary JS web tools like Babel, Webpack or yarn.

Ruby on Rails

Wrap it all together by coding your first Ruby on Rails applications. Deploy your applications in production & start coding “the Rails way”. Go deep into Rails discovering advanced concepts like nested resources, namespaces, or how to refactor an app with services or to build an API with Rails.

Cloning Airbnb in teams

Code a clone of Airbnb from scratch in 5 days. You will work in teams to learn to collaborate on Github using pull requests and deploy your apps on Heroku, using the same workflow as successful startups. Implement advanced features (payment, image upload, search, geocoding, background jobs, etc…) and learn to cover your code with tests.

Turn an idea into a product in 2 weeks

Projects Phase is the ultimate experience of the course: invent, pitch, design, code and deploy an original project in teams of 3 or 4 people during the two final weeks. You will have to go through all the process from the idea to the live app in production on a real domain name, ready to be tested on the market!

  • Define the Product's target users and unique value proposition
  • Build an interactive prototype with Figma to validate the UX
  • Split the work in your teams by defining and assigning user stories
  • Code the web application from scratch: from the back-end to the user interface
  • Deploy your app on a production environment
  • Pitch your product during the Demo Day!

Unbelievable ! It allowed me to be reconciled with the world of code that I hated. The short is well distributed. It's really well structured and precise. This allows to understand the fundamentals and especially to execute the concepts immediately.

L'aide individuelle à la formation (AIF) | Pôle emploi

L'aide individuelle à la formation permet au candidat de demander à Pôle emploi le financement d'une partie de sa formation. Il faut faire la demande au maximum 10 jours ouvrés avant le début de la formation.

Le déblocage du CPF via https://www.moncompteformation.gouv.fr

Depuis le 21 novembre 2019, la Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations s’occupe du déblocage du CPF pour tous (demandeurs d’emplois, salariés, freelance, ...). Voici la marche à suivre:

https://www.moncompteformation.gouv.fr/espace-public/comment-sinscrire-une-session-de-formation-directement-en-ligne

https://www.moncompteformation.gouv.fr/espace-public/jai-fait-une-demande-dinscription-et-apres

Tu trouveras notre formation au nom de FAST, qui est le nom de la société en rentrant les données suivantes “Développeur Web Mobile” et “13006".

La Préparation Opérationnelle à l'Emploi Individuelle (POEI) | Pôle emploi

La Préparation Opérationnelle à l'Emploi Individuelle permet à un candidat de se faire financer sa formation en partie par Pôle Emploi (8€/h max) et par l'OPCO de l'entreprise qui souhaite l'embaucher après la formation, à condition qu'il lui reste du budget. Tous les papiers doivent être envoyés au maximum 10 jours ouvrés avant le début de la formation.

Fongecif

Le financement par Fongecif va permettre de financer majoritairement des personnes en reconversion professionnelle. Ces personnes peuvent avoir plusieurs statuts: CDI, CDD, demandeurs d'emploi ayant fait la demande de financement avant la fin de leur contrat de travail.

Les délais à respecter pour déposer les dossiers sont les suivants: Lorsque la demande est faite par une personne en CDI : 3 mois minimum avant le début officiel de la formation. Lorsque la demande est faite par une personne en CDD : 2 mois minimum avant le début officiel de la formation.

Opérateurs de compétences (OPCO)

Les OPCO permettent aux entreprises de financer entièrement ou partiellement la formation de leurs salariés. Le dossier doit être finalisé au moins un mois avant la date de début officielle de la formation.

Le financement via les caisses de retraite

Certaines caisses de retraite disposent d’un budget d’aide à la formation de leurs cotisants. Il faut compter 2 semaines pour monter le dossier. Une fois que le dossier est monté, le temps de traitement peut être long : 3 à 5 mois. Le montant dépend de chaque dossier.

C'est donc une option pour se faire rembourser une partie de la formation à posteriori.

Les gains fiscaux

Lors de votre déclaration de revenu (faite en mai), le déclarant a droit à une déduction forfaitaire sur ses revenus salariaux et rémunérations de 10% (déduction automatique par l’administration fiscale). Mais il peut aussi choisir, si c’est à son avantage, d’opter pour la déduction des frais réels professionnels réellement engagés (transports pour travailler, etc…).

Cette règle s’applique aussi aux frais engagés pour sa propre formation dès lors que la formation suivie se rapporte bien à son activité professionnelle.

Si vous suivez une formation dont vous supportez le coût total ou en partie, il est donc important de pouvoir calculer le coût de l’ensemble de vos frais, formation incluse, afin de déterminer si ces frais sont supérieurs à 10% de vos revenus (revenus comprenant salaires, salaires d’associés, rémunérations des gérants et associés, droits d’auteur, avantages en nature et indemnisations journalières).

Si tel est le cas, l’option pour les frais réels et non l’abattement forfaitaire vous permettra de réduire d’autant votre revenu imposable. Mais bien sûr, il faut garder tous les justificatifs.

Le prêt étudiant avec notre banque partenaire

Le partenariat permet aux candidats de faire une demande de financement pour tout ou une partie de la formation.

Le prêt est à des conditions très avantageuses: - Taux: 0,9% ; - Durée : jusqu'à 9 ans ; - Possibilité de différer le remboursement jusqu'à 5 an ; - Frais de CB offerts pendant un an.

Il est conseillé de faire la demande au moins 10 jours ouvrés avant le début de la formation.
