If pre-training training is needed, TurnToTech offers 80 hours of free in-person prep-work to get ready for the full-time course. There is also a 40-hour, pre-training selection process for cyber security programs that is integral to ensuring that students are both technically capable and a professional fit for the cyber security jobs they seek.

The bootcamp has a recommended 12 weeks of coursework and 4 weeks of internship but students who move faster can spend more time on their internship. In the mobile courses, students will learn fundamentals and understanding end-to-end software development, including requirements management, system design, architecture, development, testing and software versioning. In cyber security courses, students will learn the fundamentals of cyber security, Python, penetration testing, ethical hacking, risk management, and more powered by HackerUSA.

    At the end of the course, we want you to be able to program fluently in Java, use the Android tools with confidence and build fully functional Android apps of almost any complexity. For example, as part of our course, we will be building a camera app which supports filters, GPS, sharing over Facebook and storage of photos on Amazon S3 cloud – which is very similar in its features to the Instagram app. The course meets 8 weeks for two, 3 hour classes each week.

    If you have the commitment and passion to get into iOS development, I highly recommend considering Turn To Tech.  They offers lectures, structured projects spanning the entire iOS eco-system, part-time classes for Swift and a community of dedicated students - all whom have something to offer each other.  The instructors are knowledgeable and passionate about conveying the complexities of software engineering in a clear and concise manner.  If you are committed to learning iOS or Android, I recommend checking out the full-time course in particular.  I can honestly say that my duration here was essential to landing a job in tech.

    I've spoken to a few potential TTT students and the most important thing that I make sure to tell them is that: The value you get out of TTT is entirely dependent on the commitment you make to it. Here's what I mean, if you study hard and take it seriously, and take advantage of every single resource that TTT provides, then you can get an amazing job afterwards. However, if you slack off and show up at 12pm everyday and treat it casually, you will find yourself with a mediocre education and limited job prospects. I make sure to say this to potential students because I have seen examples of both students. I've seen many students, including myself, spend 70+ hours a week studying, and get amazing jobs, some with 6 figure salaries. I also had friends who showed up in the afternoon and joked around and didn't take the course seriously, they remained unemployed for a long time, if not still unemployed. 
     
    Anyways, if you decide to take it seriously, it's a great program. There are no classes or batches where students have to learn at the same pace. You learn at your own pace. This type of learning is infinitely better than the 19th century style public education. The course consists of 12 projects that will ultimately serve as your portfolio. When you have questions for the instructor, they do not just give you the answer and walk away. Their teaching style is very Socratic. They will help lead you to the answer so that you can determine the answer for yourself. This is hugely important as a programmer for two reasons: 1) Defining and breaking down problems is the fundamental skill that all programmers use everyday. 2) I cannot ask my senior engineer at my current job for help everytime I have a question. I need to be able to come to the solution on my own. 
     
    tl;dr: TTT is a great course for people who are motivated and have self discipline. (Both skills needed to be a successfull software engineer.)

Thanks!
