We've spent the last three years training students for jobs as web developers and software engineers. We offer the deferred tuition model for our Immersive Program and the Guaranteed Tier for our Flex Program because we firmly believe that we are better teachers when we share the risk and the success with our students. That same belief motivates us to constantly refine our approach and upgrade our curriculum, as our industry changes, to ensure that Viking students have the best options for a successful career upgrade.
Why we Made the Switch
2. We can be more efficient by teaching just one core language
How the Course Looks Now
What Stays the Same: The curriculum used by our Immersive Program will continue to cover the same level of depth as before across all significant areas, including the fundamentals of programming, databases, testing, security, frontend frameworks, hiring and so on.
A diagram of our curriculum progression, which shows both the Ruby/Rails and JS/Node tracks, is provided below. I recommend that you Download the Course Syllabus to see the full scope of our newly upgraded curriculum across both programs.
How This Affects Other Viking Programs
The Viking Flex Program, which allows you to take our course part-time and with exactly the level of support you want, will continue to use our newly-updated Rails course on the back end and it will shortly transition to using React on the front end as well.
How You Can Get Started
You can take advantage of this newly upgraded course path by applying for the March 2017 cohort of the Viking Immersive Program. Applications are currently open but the deadlines will begin arriving very quickly. We accept a very limited number of students into each cohort and the process is extremely competitive.
Your best bet is to:
- Apply now for the March 2017 Immersive Program
- Dive into our comprehensive -- and free -- Prep Work as soon as possible so you can prepare for your interviews and get ready for Day 1.
The benefits of starting with the free Prep Work are many -- you will not only learn many things that you haven't seen before but you also get a chance to test drive us. So give it a shot!
Regardless of what your first step is, I hope you'll join us to take the next one in your developer career.
