Reboot Kamp is the coding bootcamp of the Middle East. Based on the Hack Reactor curriculum, they accomplish in 4 months what most universities in the world fail to deliver in 4 years : market ready software engineers experienced in the world’s favourite internet programming language.
Delivered in English only, the entire program lasts for 16 weeks and is divided into two phases, the Prep and the Immersive. The Prep is an onsite final assessment that students are required to pass in order to be admitted into the Immersive phase. Only upon successful completion of the Prep will students be admitted to the Immersive phase where the fun begins. During this stage, students will be exposed to a variety of programming methods while working in a diverse group to enhance their teamwork experience.
