About the Bootcamp

The 8-week iOS Swift evening bootcamp provides accelerated training in app development for experienced engineers. The course was designed to cover all the major topics required to build Swift apps according to current industry best practices through the following components:

  • Weekly 2 hour session to review key mobile concepts and topics.
  • Weekly lab session to collaborate on projects and complete coding challenges.
  • Weekly app assignments to immediately apply each new topic introduced.
  • Group project to design and develop a complete app with a team over the course.

At the end of the program, your group will compete for cash prizes at Demo Day and you will join our CodePath alumni network which provides access to curated events, opportunities to network with other alums, and priority selection for future classes.

Hands-on Projects

The bootcamp curriculum is entirely centered around building interesting projects that reinforce every concept introduced.

The only way to learn development skills is to build and during this bootcamp, you will get experience building a diverse set of apps.

The Teachers

Ben Sandofsky

BS Double Major: Computer Science + Humanities, Worcester Polytechnic Institute.

I've worked as a professional engineer for over ten years. I was at Twitter over four years, where I was Tech Lead on Twitter for iPhone, iPad, and Mac. Before that, I was lead on mobile.twitter.com, one of the company's largest Ruby systems. When the company shifted to mobile, I ran bootcamps for the hundreds of existing web engineers. Prior to Twitter, I've worked everywhere from tiny, three person startups, to large enterprise companies with thousands of employees.

Timothy Lee

BS Computer Engineering and MS Electrical Engineering from the University of Texas and Stanford.

I've been programming web and mobile apps for the last three years. Founded a Google Ventures startup called Miso. Prior to that, I worked in the robotics industry for four years. That was fun, but I saw the massive shift to web and mobile, and I realized that it was essential I learned these technologies. Since then, I've been helping others learn web and mobile and thinking of better ways to learn and teach online.
