About our Mission:
As the classical education system has shown itself to be largely inadequate for producing IT students with a practical skill base, coding bootcamps have been on the rise for the past several years. The core reason for their success is that they offer exactly what degree programs do not; practical, hands-on experience at a competitive price point. In this spirit, Droid Rocks! aims to take core elements of the coding bootcamp model to the next level. By accepting students with no formal coding experience, we kickoff the program by laying a foundation for Object Oriented programming, continue on to Android basics and finish by guiding students through their own real-world projects based on the SDLC (Software Development Life Cycle) process used in corporate environments around the world. This allows us to develop Android applications at a reduced cost while offering our students invaluable job experience. Using this model, we are also able to establish Droid Rocks! as a reliable 3rd party developer and potentially offer positions to students who successfully complete the program. Talk about a win-win situation for everyone!
