Perficient has developed this custom bootcamp in partnership with Strayer University’s Hackbright Academy, a coding bootcamp and software engineering program designed for women, and DevMountain, a design and coding bootcamp specifically designed to equip minority students from underrepresented communities with the skills to start their journey toward a career in technology.

Our 16-week fully funded, customized coding bootcamp is designed to prepare students for the workforce and study in-demand programs such as Python, JavaScript, Java, React, and Structured Query Language (SQL). During the first eight weeks of the program, students will complete coursework focusing on the foundational concepts of coding. For the remaining eight weeks of the program, students will then choose a specialty focus track and develop their own applications.
