Kodeco's iOS On-Demand Bootcamp Details

Become an iOS developer... on your own terms! With Kodeco's iOS On-Demand Bootcamp, you can dive into the world of building elegant, high-performing apps anytime — no need to adjust your life to someone else's schedule. Experience the full breadth of our live bootcamp content whenever it suits you, enriched by tailored feedback and guidance from our expert mentors.

Just as with Kodeco’s live bootcamps, you'll start by laying a strong foundation in the fundamentals of Swift, Apple's modern programming language. Then, you'll move to building modern, stylish apps in Xcode, Apple's integrated development environment. You'll use SwiftUI and other tools such as live preview to build flexible, responsive layouts. You'll then bring more logic and complexity into your apps as you tackle networking, saving data, and concurrency. By the end of this bootcamp, you'll not only master crucial iOS development skills, but also complete a feature-rich app to showcase in your portfolio. Plus, you'll learn interview techniques and soft skills to truly set you apart from other candidates at work or in the job market.

Prerequisites

You are self-driven and motivated to learn. You have a Mac computer capable of running macOS Ventura, as well as Xcode 14.3.1. A basic understanding of computers and coding is helpful.

Modules 1-4: Building a Strong Foundation

Start off by installing Xcode and learning the essentials of version control with Git. By the end of Module 2, you'll have crafted your first app and explore how useful SwiftUI is in creating modern apps. Modules 3 and 4 deepen your understanding of Swift, taking you from the basics to more advanced topics. You'll finish this section armed with the foundational skills to build apps confidently.


Modules 5-7: Mastering SwiftUI & Data Management

Here, you really get into the art of app building. You’ll learn how to build layouts in SwiftUI, navigate through data displays and create engaging animations. To give your apps a backbone, Module 7 will teach you the crucial skill of saving data. Striking a balance between design and function is key, and this section ensures you nail it.


Modules 8-12: Networking & Advanced Concepts

Here is where your app really starts to shine. Learn the basics of networking with URLSession and then challenge yourself with its advanced techniques. Embrace the efficiency of modern concurrency in Modules 10 and 11. And just in case things get tricky, Module 12 has your back with essential testing and debugging skills. The goal? Crafting dynamic, efficient, and robust apps that demonstrate your skills.


Modules 13-15: Capstone & Graduation

It's showtime. Module 13 marks the start of your Capstone Project. Harness everything you've learned to design a standout app for your portfolio. Refine and polish in Module 14, ensuring every detail reflects your newfound expertise. And then, the cherry on top – Module 15 celebrates your achievements and marks your graduation. Ready to make a splash in the app world? The stage is yours.

Frequently asked questions

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for? Check out our FAQ page.

Which should I choose, a live bootcamp or an on-demand bootcamp?

Kodeco’s Live Bootcamps are the ideal choice for learners who:

 

- Desire structure and routine, committing to two enriching live sessions per week at preset times.

- Seek to harness the adrenaline and motivation from tight deadlines to propel their growth.

- Value the camaraderie of collaborating and growing alongside a dedicated cohort of like-minded peers.

- Benefit from hands-on mentorship, cherishing the in-depth guidance and feedback that our experienced mentors provide.


Kodeco’s On-Demand Bootcamps are tailor-made for individuals who:


- Cherish freedom and flexibility, requiring a learning model that molds to their unique lifestyles and time constraints.

- Exhibit strong self-discipline, setting and adhering to their personal study schedules with gusto.

- Delight in independent exploration, navigating the world of coding at a pace that aligns with their absorption and comfort.

- Appreciate financial flexibility, favoring a pay-as-you-go system that lets them invest in their education on their terms.

Is the monthly or the annual plan better for me?

If you believe you can progress through the material swiftly, the monthly plan might be your best bet. If you follow the ambitious pace of our  live bootcamps (but on your own timeline), you'd complete the curriculum in roughly four months.

On the other hand, if you prefer a stress-free experience without the monthly payment reminders, opting for the one-time annual payment is ideal. This not only grants you ample time to complete the bootcamp curriculum, but if you finish early, you can dive into our comprehensive library of expert-crafted resources for further learning!

How soon will my on-demand bootcamp be accessible after I complete my enrollment?

We’ll activate your account within 24 hours of enrollment!

Is the on-demand bootcamp asynchronous or in person?

Kodeco’s on-demand bootcamps take place asynchronously so that you can work at your own pace and on your own schedule. The mentors will give you support and feedback through Discord, and will return your homework within three days of submission.

What are the prerequisites for enrolling?

To be well prepared for this bootcamp, you need some familiarity with computers and coding, a Mac computer capable of running the latest OS and the most recent version of Xcode.

Do I need programming experience?

Familiarity with the basics of any coding language is recommended but not required.

Can I choose my own start date?

Yes! You can start anytime you like, and you’ll finish up once you’ve worked your way through the materials, submitted your homework with a satisfactory level of work and completed the capstone project.

What happens if I have to withdraw from the on-demand bootcamp?

If you are unable to focus on your studies and feel you must withdraw from the program, your options depend on which billing cycle you enrolled with:

 

- Monthly: You can cancel your future billing with your membership and you will not be renewed on your next billing date OR you can pause your membership for up to three months, then you can pick up your studies again at that time.


- Annual: While we do not offer refunds on annual purchases, you can take a break for the time you need and revisit the content again if you are still within your purchase window. The annual plan will not renew automatically without your request to do so.

What will the assignments look like?

You’ll work your way through 15 modules that cover everything you need to know to create a real iOS app using Swift and SwiftUI. 

Each module will have a content assignment made up of books, articles, videos and other types of content. 

In most modules, you’ll receive a homework assignment once you’ve studied the content. The assignments consist of quizzes and/or coding practice. 

When you’ve completed the assignment, you’ll submit it for grading. You can then choose to practice the module’s subject in more depth or move on to the next module.

How long will I need to wait to receive a grade on my homework?

The mentors will grade and return your homework within three days of receiving it.

Do I need to follow a specific schedule when working through the modules?

No, you’ll need to complete the modules in order, but as soon as you complete a module, you can move on to the next. 

If I struggle with a concept or homework, can I ask my mentor to hop on a video call with me?

In short, no. Our mentors are generally working devs who have full-time jobs themselves, and aren’t paid to provide on-call video chat support for students. But don't worry — we’ll train you in the right way to get your questions answered! You'll learn and practice how to troubleshoot any problem you run into asynchronously via text in our dedicated bootcamp chat channel. You'll need this skill throughout your developer career.

If you fall behind and feel you’d benefit from individual tutoring, you can talk to the bootcamp coordinator about options.

Is interview or job prep included?

If you want to find a job as a professional developer or learn to be a better team member at your current job, Kodeco provides optional professional growth content for you to pursue.
