App Factory was started to bring new and exciting opportunities to dreamers.
In the Spring of 2012, a product manager and developer started App Factory bootcamps as a part-time training program for aspiring web and app developers.
5 bootcamps, over 100 coders, dozens of apps, 2 online portals, 1 book and loads of fun later, App Factory is broadening its offering for both entrepreneurs and job seekers in technology.
The Next Session of Bootcamps runs January 6th -> April 2nd, 2015
with Pre-work assignments beginining November 15th, 2014.
We are proud of the dozens of apps and sites built by our bootcamp students and alumni! Here is a mini-showcase of apps and services we've shipped over the years.
All selected students from our program undergo intense training either on weekdays or on Saturdays. We pair students into groups based on skills and personality. We teach you the following, in this order:
We cover the basics of HTML5, CSS3, HAML, Bootstrap and jQuery to deploy landing pages with their own domain names.
We work in groups to demonstrate how to share and manage code-bases on OpenShift, Heroku, and GitHub.
We examine MongoDB (NoSQL) with Node.js chat apps. We explore MYSQL with PHP beta sign-up web apps. Then, we examine SQLite and PostgreSQL with Rails apps.
We dive into using jQuery and Zepto plugins for advanced user-experience offerings in our web applications and Wordpress pages, along with back-end APIs like Stripe and PayPal to process payments.
We build simple, yet rebust applications based on repositories selected from GitHub to learn to read and write elegant code.
We use the Ionic and Angular frameworks to rapidly prototype and develop iPhone and Android apps for release by the end of the bootcamp.
We have 3 primary offerings for our app development school and co-op. Additionally, we have specialized, more focused seminars and courses for our alumni.
