Four Phases of Learning
PHASE 1: INTRODUCTION TO WEB DEVELOPMENT
PHASE 2: BACK-END DEVELOPMENT
Learn about code that runs on a server using Python, how to set up and use relational databases, and how to develop fully functioning web applications using the Django framework.
PHASE 3: ADVANCED FRONT-END AND BACK-END
Dig deeper into the aspects of web development that interest you the most. You can learn how to build rich interactive web applications that work as well on mobile as on the desktop with front-end technologies. Or work like a back-end web developer to dig into the cloud, and learn how to set up servers and run complicated processes.
PHASE 4: AGILE DEVELOPMENT
Tackle modern Agile development practices by building a final team project. Gain the skills you need to contribute to a development team, like participating in code reviews, using Agile planning, giving technical presentations, and pair programming.
Instructors are available from 9 AM- 5:30 PM EST Monday-Friday.
Lab time with instructors is set aside to work on assignments and provide office hours, 1:1 support, and additional lectures to address students' needs.
Expect to put in a typical Monday-Friday, 40-hour work week during final projects.
Group work typically runs into the evenings and weekends.

What do we look for in students?
Starting a new career takes a lot of work and dedication. At Momentum, we have created a supportive and rigorous environment to help people learn and gain practical job skills to start a career in tech. We look to admit students to our course who are eager to start a career in tech, have tinkered with coding enough to know a career writing code is the right fit for them, and who are ready to work alongside others through the learning process. This means we accept students who demonstrate the soft skills required to learn and work in groups.
