FEATURED STORIES

The program started with a career lecture on the global expansion of technology and the increasing need for IT jobs in the Philippines and overseas.

The actual coding classes were led by Zuitt’s Instructors. Throughout the sessions, participants were encouraged to ask questions and to share their concerns as though they’re attending an actual live Bootcamp session. Tips, Tricks, FAQs, and all questions were addressed to allow an active learning environment.

On the First Day, the code-along class was led by Instructor Jino where he taught basic HTML and Bootstrap to the participants. On the next day, participants worked with Instructor Earl to incorporate CSS into their code – making their basic web page interesting and eye-catching by using different fonts, features, and colors. The instructors provided a step-by-step guide on how to make their web pages accessible to anyone online. Overall, the participants enjoyed the crash course because it allowed them to create a basic web page in a span of two days.

Participant Feedback on Zuitt’s Free Coding Bootcamp

“It was fun and I was able to grasp many concepts about HTML, CSS, and Bootstrap w/o having a strong foundation about those.” – Jhon A.

“It was fun! The instructors were very patient in attending to the queries of the participants and the lessons were beginner-friendly.” – Cyrena T.

“This session is a great experience. It was fun and I was able to get acquainted with real developers. This experience gave me an idea on upskilling to become a developer. Actually, I wanna shift to an IT field career but had no idea because ever since, in my working career, I’ve only had BPO experiences. I wanna upskill myself and want a career that is fulfilling.” – Jeremiah O.

Opportunities for everyone, everywhere

In line with its company vision, Zuitt has instructed over 2,300 developers in 190+ batches for over 300 organizations during the last 6 years. In 2020, Zuitt successfully transitioned from  offline to online classes. In the same year, Zuitt also expanded its coding classes overseas.

The Bootcamp has been providing world-class quality classes to those interested in coding, whether they are students, career shifters, or current tech professionals. Zuitt developed and created the Developer Career Program, in which the students are equipped with the necessary tools and coding languages that they need to jumpstart their tech career.

Zuitt Developer Career Program Curriculum

The Bootcamp has been providing beginner-friendly world-class quality classes. Zuitt’s Developer Career Program has three main courses – Front-end course, Back-end Course, and the Full-stack Course.

The students will be first introduced to Front-end Development, or the creation of what the users see when they visit websites. By the end of the first course, they will be able to create fully-customizable, mobile-responsive websites. Next is the Back-end Course, which consists of making the database and server to make the website retrieve needed information and data. After that, the student completes their skill-set with the Full-Stack by combining their back-end know-how with an understanding of client and server interaction through the MERN stack (MongoDB, Express.js, React.js, Node.js). The course comes full-circle as the developers will be asked to create a fully-functional web application complete with user authentication and management of assets.

Career Services and Flexible Payment Plan

On top of the coding classes, Zuitt also helps their boot campers in preparing for their job search after commencement by providing career preparation services such as resume writing, interview coaching, and career roadmap building.

For the Bootcamp fee, flexible payment options are offered. Zuitt offers a Study-Now-Pay-Later plan where a minimal amount of deposit is needed to start their Developer Career Program training while the rest of the course fee will only be paid after completing the courses.
