Bootcamp began November 5th!
Break into any core tech job with our 3-month bootcamp.
Start with the fundamentals, contribute to high-impact projects and learn high-quality engineering.
All online, all for FREE.
Flexible time commitment.
We partner with startups and non-profits working on cutting-edge products and making real impact.
We will be re-architecting plateletdonors.org with modern front-end and back-end technologies, with the added challenge of exploring PWA (Progressive Web Apps) for efficient mobile rendering on slower networks.
We will be building a productivity software based on images received from a drone survey for a construction SAAS startup.
Learning outcomes - state-of-the-art front-end technologies (Virtual DOM, ReactJS, Functional JS), cloud processing at scale (processing 100k images), photogrammetry, technology-stack for computer stereo vision.
The Proso bootcamp is for you if -
Five years ago, while in college, we were building our first startup, working on things that we knew zero theory for. Theory eventually caught up.
It's not rocket science.
Engineering banks on some very simple fundamentals that are just repeated across domains. Recruiters look for candidates who are able to start from first principles, break a vague problem down into its building blocks and conquer each part individually.
Make no mistake, this is easier said than done. The patience and persistence required to follow this approach does not come easy. It takes practice and it takes work.
Through the course of our bootcamp, we will help with you just that - the fundamental building blocks in engineering coupled with hands-on tasks. Armed with this, you will be able to take up challenges, break it down into solvable chunks of problems and come up with elegant solutions.
By the end of these 3 months, nothing for you will be off-reach.
Q. I am currently working as a full time employee in another firm. Am I eligible to join? How much time would the bootcamp need?
A. Yes! The bootcamp will roughly need 10 hours of your time per week, including weekends. Tasks are allocated on a weekly basis. If you are not available for a week, you can shrink your time for that week and compensate in some other week.
Q. I am a student and interested to be a part of this bootcamp. Am I eligible to join?
A. Absolutely! Why write "library management system" on your resume when you can write real projects and back them up with real learnings.
Q. What technology stack will I be working on?
A. We choose the stack on the basis of the active projects and languages that suit them the most. In the current active projects, following are the languages we will use -
Backend - NodeJS, Python, Clojure, Redis
Frontend - ReactJS, Functional Vanilla JS, SCSS, HTML5, WebGL
General - Git (PRs, issues, tags, branching strategies, MD files for design documents)
Q. Where is this bootcamp?
A. It's 100% online. Increasingly, companies are going remote and candidates who are familiar with remote tools (such as Zoom, Trello etc) and have worked remotely in the past have a lot of leverage while finding jobs. Also, this format will force us to stay organised, communicate effectively and document things of importance. All our lessons, tasks and messages will be available online through industry-standard tools.
Q. How much is the fees for the bootcamp?
A. Its absolutely free of cost. Think about it for a moment, we will together be solving real problems. With one of our active projects, you will literally be helping save lives. Secondly, we want this bootcamp to reach people who really need this. By introducing a fees, we will be adding friction to that objective and that's not the right thing to do.
Q. What are the prerequisites to be a part of this bootcamp?
A. A computer, an active internet connection and a firm belief that you can learn anything you set your mind to (we have absolute faith in this). While not required, if you have written a basic "Hello World" program in any programming language before, it will definitely help! For those who are well beyond this, we have provisions to jump right into things you want to focus on.
