Turing School of Software and Design

Introduction

We Are Educators

Being a good software developer does not prepare you to teach development. The Turing staff blends computer programming experience with years of classroom instruction. No other team can match our depth of expertise and on-the-ground instructional experience.

Our team

  • Is skilled in education pedagogy with over 70 years of aggregate classroom experience.
  • Builds on lessons learned from creating both Hungry Academy and gSchool.
  • Trains professional development teams at top technology companies like LivingSocial, Boeing, Accenture, and Sony PlayStation.
  • Contributes to the community, presenting at and helping organize RubyConf, RailsConf, JSConf and dozens of smaller conferences.
  • Is committed to making our program inviting and accessible to a broad range of people, regardless of academic background, professional background, age, race, gender, gender identification or sexual orientation.

Everything You Need to Become Successful

No other software development program approaches the depth of expertise our students develop. Beyond simple Rails applications, our students master Test-Driven Development, build and consume APIs, implement systems for coordinating applications, and understand strong Object-Oriented design.

Our academic curriculum

  • Has been refined over the past five years of full-time teaching.
  • Includes everything a developer needs to build professional-quality web applications.
  • Teaches the principles behind the code.
  • Is published as open source, benefitting the community beyond our walls

Moving from the basics of object-oriented programming and data structures to building database-backed web applications in Sinatra and Ruby on Rails, our Back-End Engineering program provides the fundamental skills to launch your career in software development.

The seven-month program includes:

Object-Oriented Programming with Ruby Web Applications with Ruby Professional Rails Applications Client-Side Development with JavaScript Object-Oriented Programming with Ruby Overview

In module 1, students learn how to solve problems using Object-Oriented programming. To do so, they build data structures and build command-line applications using the Ruby programming language. By the end of this module, students should be able to take a complex problem, create an algorithm to solve it and feel comfortable test-driving their implementation.... [-]


Front-End Engineering

Fundamental Web Technologies Web Development with JavaScript Professional Client-Side Development Desktop and Mobile Applications with Web Technologies Fundamental Web Technologies Overview

Module 1 focuses on introducing developers to the foundations of the web platform and the tools used to build software for the web. In this module, we'll discuss the three major technologies used for building software that runs in the web browser: HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Students will learn the fundamentals of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. They'll use CSS to dynamically resize the page content to fit a wide variety of screen sizes—from small mobile devices to large desktop displays. They'll write their own grid layout system and add custom interactions using jQuery. Students will learn software engineering fundamentals like test-driven development and version control. We'll also cover best practices used by professional developers such as version control, user personas, and wireframes.... [-]
