Where to Begin? Right here.

 

 

First, it is necessary to understand RBK’s Mission. We are not your typical career accelerator or coding bootcamp. Unlike our competitors, we are focused on the most vulnerable and generally more concerned with molding the kind of character that aligns with human progress and our hiring partners expectations than producing code monkeys. What separates RBK from everyone else is this focus on character building which involves mindfulness training, yoga, meditation, restorative justice practice and a ton of physical (food, housing, transportation) and psycho social (counseling, Talking Circles) support. 

This more than anything else, more than the curriculum, more than selecting high, more than the staff, more than student support (food, housing, transportation), more than alumni support, accounts for their success and our extremely high replacement rate. Remove the self-awareness training and the character building and the worth of our enterprise goes to zero.

Code bootcamp pedagogy combines several traditional methodologies – fail-based learning, problem/project-based learning, collaborative learning, immersive learning – with agile scrum and mindfulness training. RBK calls this eXtreme Learning (XL).

How To Apply

Our online coding bootcamp admissions process is designed to swiftly identify those candidates with drive and determination, and enhance their knowledge, skills, and preparation prior to an immersive.

Prepare

RBK receives a lot of applications for each 40 person cohort. poor English is the most common reason applicants are rejected.

English ability correlates strongly with success in our program so we highly recommend you improve your English before applying. If you are less than B1, you should consider enrolling in an online self-study course. Test yourself HERE. .

There are many FREE online resources.

Or simply pick up a book and start reading but keep a dictionary close.

If your English is at least B1 and you want to prepare yourself for the technical aspects of the program, check out some of these sites:

  • Codecademy – Start with HTML/CSS lessons. Advance to Javascript after you have mastered HTML/CSS. Good for beginners.
  • Khan Academy’s Computer Programming courses – Fantastic for beginners. Highly recommended.
  • r/learnJavascript – A Reddit subreddit with a lot of good links and other JavaScript learners

Finally, can you type without looking down at your keyboard? If not, practice your typing, it will save you valuable time.

Mastering all the above does not guarantee you a seat in our program but it will greatly enhance your chances.

Good luck!

Admissions Process

Similar to how our immersive models the engineering industry, our admissions models the immersive. We provide introductory-level curriculum to teach you everything you need to know about the basics of JavaScript and how to solve problems like an engineer. Show us you’ve mastered what we look for and that you’re ready to go further.

The whole process, from beginning to day one of the immersive, typically takes 2-4 months. It is challenging, but it is a rewarding and incredible growth journey. When you’re admitted, you’ll know you’re among other incredible peers, all fully ready, motivated and vetted for success.
