Do I need to purchase software licenses?

No. No licenses are required. Extra tools like GitHub Copilot are encouraged but not required.

What will I learn?

You will learn how to build enterprise .NET applications the right way from a product specification.

Your learning will cover more than just code and technologies, it will cover best practices, processes and methodologies.

Do I need to bring a laptop?

Yes. You need a laptop. The minimum hardware requirements are:

  • Intel i5 CPU (or similar AMD)
  • 32GB RAM
  • 512GB SSD
  • Full HD display (1080p resolution)
  • Long-lasting battery life (eg: 4+ Hours)

Life after FireBootCamp

What can I expect from the course? How much better will I be?

You will learn how to build full stack .NET applications the way that they should be built. This is very different from how they are built in nearly every other course on the market. You will learn the architecture that professional developers use to write large enterprise applications. This maintainable approach is used by SSW for some of the largest websites in the country.

  • You will know how to build enterprise full stack .NET applications.
  • You will walk away knowing Scrum inside and out.
  • You will learn development tools like GitHub
  • You will learn how to do database development with EF Core and SQL Server
  • You will learn how to be a frontend wizard with Angular
  • You will develop soft skills to effectively communicate with stakeholders

What chance of getting a job do I have after I graduate?

After FireBootCamp you will walk away job ready. We teach you everything you need to know to walk into an employer and be confident that you can contribute to the team from day 1.

Upon graduation, you may also have an opportunity to interview at SSW!
