We’re proud to announce that we’re kicking off a new UX & Front-End Development bootcamp with Metis this Fall. Earlier this year, we helped launch the Ruby on Rails bootcamp with great success and as a design-driven company, it’s a natural step to expand into product design.
Designers today are increasingly involved in every step of a product’s evolution. It’s now common for our role to include front-end development and product, visual, interaction, and user experience design. Things move quick, products change rapidly, and having capable designers tightly integrated throughout the process is crucial. Our bootcamp at Metis is no different and we’ve been developing our curriculum around this notion.
The first bootcamp will be September 22nd through November 21st (9 weeks) and take place in New York City. It will consist of 100% in-person instruction, Monday–Friday, 9–6. I’m grateful to be joined by Allison House as my co-instructor. She’s worked with companies such as Dropbox, Codecademy and Treehouse and brings an incredible amount of knowledge and skill to our team.
Our goal is for students to graduate with confidence in producing quality digital product design solutions, with capabilities ranging from prototyping, to designing mobile and web applications, and working with HTML and CSS. Students will be able to pursue a job as an entry-level product designer, user experience designer, web designer or mobile designer.
