What You’ll Learn
Bootcamp Prep will teach you two things.
- Problem Solving
These two skills are paramount to becoming a software engineer and being accepted into Code Platoon. Specifically, your problem solving ability. When most people start learning to code, they just learn the syntax of a language, and then when it comes time to solve coding challenges, they immediately get stuck and give up. Bootcamp Prep will help you develop your problem-solving skills by giving you coding challenges that put you to the test.
