This is the curriculum for the 2019 Alpha Web Developer Bootcamp.

Professional Development Week Overview

This week we hone our focus on student's professional development. At LEARN we want our students to succeed not only during the program, but also after graduation. We spend the week preparing them for their upcoming job search and introducing them to the different ways LEARNs career services can supplement their search.
