Of course! Our pre-course materials start from scratch, and equip you with the framework, context and new vocabulary to allow you to excel in the course.
This is a non-credit bearing course but upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a Certificate of Completion from Greenfield Community College.
If you are taking the full-time course which is Monday-Friday, 9:00-5:00pm, for 12 weeks, it will be too challenging for you to work and take this demanding Bootcamp. In addition to the 40 hours of class time, you will be required to do work outside of class as well. If you take the part-time course, which is evening and weekend over 24 weeks, you will have the capacity to work.
Participants are required to have access to a modern laptop to bring to each class session, which can run up-to-date operating systems including MacOS, Windows, or Linux. Learners must have video/audio functionality in order to participate in the online courses.
All laptops must be able to run the following software:
Google Chrome version 70.0 or higher (browser)
Mozilla Firefox version 60.0 or higher (browser)
Windows Visual Studio Code version 1.28.0 or higher (editor)
Git version 2.19.1 or higher (version control)
Heroku-CLI version 7.18.0 or higher (application platform)
If you need to miss a class for any reason, don't worry! Life happens. You'll be responsible for reviewing the lecture(s), material(s) that you missed and for submitting any project work related to the classes you missed. Let your course instructor know if you need anything.
All of our course programs are communities. Alongside technical skills, the coursework also provides professional development, presentation of yourself to future employers, and networking opportunities. GCC has an extensive network to help connect you to hiring partners.
