Daily Syllabus

Confidently comprehensive.

No frills. Just do.

Intro to programming. Learn about basic data types, writing functions, file I/O, and classes. Understand the control-flow with if statements and for loops.

Write your first server with node. Understand REST, routing, APIs, and more

Build out the client side with HTML and CSS! Now you'll have a full static website built.

Increase your front-end skills by adding some more functionality to your website by using JQuery!

Polish up your website, go over any other points of confusion, and talk about next steps! We will also go over some interview questions in this class if we have time

Day to Day

Maximize Learning

  • 30 Minute Lecture
  • Collaborative Building

Laptops down! Learn new concepts from our instructor. Format ranges from an in-class demo to lecture slides to active participation demos. We purposefully keep our lectures short to focus on building and making projects as we believe doing is better than saying.

Build Build Build! The best way to learn is by building. We'll be applying what we learn immediately and start coding up a stormr

Why Polyglot?

Learn Real Software Engineering

Curriculum

Cohesive curriculum with each lecture building on the last. This is something that community programs often don’t offer, but paid ones do. Programming concepts are not isolated from each other. Having a structured and rigorous curriculum that teaches students how to build things from complete scratch is something that drop-in classes cannot do.Think of it as the difference in taking a community ballet class vs paid lessons. Community classes are great, but ultimately limited in how far it can take you.

Instructors

Teachers who know the material like the back of their hand. Having experienced instructors means that the program can put more advanced topics in their curriculum and are not limited by the quality of instructors they get.

Depth

Complexity and applicability to the industry. Often, coding classes are limited in the number of hours they spend with each student. They then resort to only teaching simple concepts. This includes learning Scratch, teaching simple data structures in python, and intro robotics. A byproduct of this is learning a bunch of disjoint concepts and never knowing how to put it together (which is back to point 1). Polyglot isn’t afraid to teach complex topics to students, because we want them to learn like an engineer.
