More about Hackbright Academy: Hackbright Academy is an intensive software engineering school for women. Highly driven & accomplished women come to Hackbright to "pivot" in their careers.
They learn the fundamentals of Computer Science data structures such as linked lists, dictionaries & trees, as well as object-oriented design. They also learn the fundamentals of basic networking concepts & how the internet works including the HTTP internet protocol. Techniques used in the industry such as pair programming, Git & version control, & deploying to cloud services such asAmazon Lightsailare also components of the program.
Students learn how to write unit-tests, integration tests, & functional tests for their code, & many also explore Test-Driven Development techniques. To manage database structures, they learn SQL. In object-oriented design they learn how to master Object Relational Mapping techniques with the SQLAlchemy library. Lastly, they use a virtual machine technology called Vagrant in order to access a consistent development environment running Ubuntu, a distribution of the Linux operating system. Can't believe they learn all this in 12 intensive weeks?
Be our guest, meet the engineers, learn about what they've accomplished, & enjoy the evening!
