It’s been four weeks since the launch of theClubhouse’s Code Bootcamp and the students are well on their way to becoming entry-level Full-Stack Developers. It’s been an intense month for all ten students and we’ve come a long way since our first week of learning Web Development. Each of the students have successfully created their first Web Application project, a personal website reminiscent of a blogging platform, complete with both Front-End and Back-End.
It’s been one hell of a first month, I am enjoying my time as a teacher. My proudest moments are when I can delegate tasks to the students with minimal instruction and they will complete them without any necessary guidance. I’ve limited my lectures to only covering topics that would apply to all students or doing topical overviews. Aside from that, most of my instructions are given on a one-on-one basis in regards to a specific question or idea a student may be curious about. My goal was to have the students begin coding as soon as possible, which allowed them to visually learn their limits and then go beyond those limitations. By the end of this class, each student will possess a myriad of skills and the ability to prototype any idea they want to make into reality.
