Web Development Bootcamp


Holmesglen has partnered with Lighthouse Labs to offer an intensive program aimed at those serious about a career in web development. Lighthouse Labs is a start up that has quickly grown to be one of Canada's largest web development training companies. Its main point of difference is that it was started by developers for developers. Partnering with Holmesglen to deliver this for the first time in Australia , this course will provide you a global and relevant education in a supportive but intensive Bootcamp format.

The goal of the Web Development Bootcamp is to transform you into a professional web developer. You'll come to understand coding logic using popular languages and frameworks like JavaScript & Ruby on Rails, while learning how to think like a programmer by building software from the ground up. The web development bootcamp will provide you with mentorship, data-driven curriculum, and a top-notch learning environment that will launch you into your first Junior Web Developer role.

What you will learn


   JavaScript & Node.js

JavaScript is the universal programming language of the web. You'll become familiar with solving problems using the language and writing client-side scripts to create dynamic content.

Node.js & React JS

JavaScript is better with its tools. Learn to use Node.js and React to increase JavaScript's usefulness. Using Node, execute scripts outside of a web browser. With the React library and its tools, build stronger user interfaces and use automated testing.

ruby rails
Ruby on Rails

Ruby, when paired with the Rails framework, is among the most versatile, intuitive, and practical programming languages. You'll learn about key concepts like the MVC design pattern and communicating with databases.

HTML, CSS,  & More

HTML and CSS are essential components for the web. Learn to use this duo to write, modify, and read code in well-structured, easily-maintained ways, and apply the techniques of responsive web design.

SQL database 
 SQL & Relational Databases

Learning to use relational databases is essential for designing web applications. Use SQL to expertly manage the data held in relational databases.

Software Architecture

You'll learn software architecture from good database modeling to abstraction and well-encapsulated code, as well as modular design.

Frequently Asked Questions

No formal education is required to be admitted to Lighthouse Labs! While having some coding knowledge always helps, your background does not matter as much as a genuine interest in code or data science and a raw determination to succeed in this challenging environment.

If you’re interested in our bootcamp but brand new to code or data, our intro courses are a perfect way to figure out if you're ready for a career as a developer or data analyst.
The bootcamp educational model is built very differently from the ones you experienced in high school and/or university. Holmesglen’s partner, Lighthouse Labs, practices a flipped, immersive model of education that puts the emphasis on the development of practical skills through building real-world applications using an incremental and cumulative collection of tools and best practices.
Lectures take up a maximum of two and a half hours in any given day, with another eight to ten hours being spent each day working in a lab setting. You can expect to introduce yourself to new concepts through readings and exercises, getting your knowledge bolstered and backfilled with lectures throughout the week.

It is our core belief that 80% of the learning should be done on the job and we’ve tailored every part of our program around it. Our curriculum is constantly interrupted by a community of passionate developers based off feedback from employers, students, alumni and industry trends. We won’t teach you everything about software development (that takes years of practice), but we will give you the foundation so you can continue learning in your new career as a developer as quickly as possible.
Web Flex will prepare you to work in a role as a professional developer. Some roles you might occupy include web developer, front-end developer, back-end developer, and full-stack developer.
You don’t need any experience in coding or computer science to succeed in Web Development and be connected to employment afterwards. This program will provide you with everything you need to work as a professional web developer at an entry level position.
The first step to becoming a developer is laying your basic foundation with our Prep Course. The 70 hours you’ll spend on completing preparatory work will introduce the basic technologies you’ll use throughout bootcamp.
We have had many-a-grads build games using web-based game engines for their final projects!
LHL’s curriculum trains you to be a full stack developer which includes these skills:
Client-server separation (via APIs, etc)
Object-Oriented Programming
Algorithm complexity analysis
CS topics such as recursion trees
Data persistence and databases (server-side but also often client-side)
TCP and real-time client-server networking (actually learned by coding a multiplayer snake game!)
Lighthouse Labs has a handful of grads go on to work as game devs after taking our program, because you learn to be a software developer, albeit focused on the web.  As most games involve the internet, it also helps them be more well rounded when thinking about the server-side of games (apis, networking, databases, etc).

Both these programs exist so as to accommodate students’ lifestyles and priorities. If you’re currently working in a position that you want to continue while training, we recommend you enroll in the less concentrated Web Flex. This is also a great option if you’re a parent or caregiver with substantial childcare duties.

If you want to get started with a new career as a web developer as soon as possible, and don’t want to wait for six months, Web Bootcamp is the better option for you. This is also a good fit if you have priorities to attend to half a year down the road.

Web development bootcamp will prepare you to work in a role as a professional full stack developer. Some roles you might occupy include web applications developer, front-end developer, back-end developer, and full-stack developer. You may get entry level positions that will allow you to learn more about the company’s technology and be mentored by more senior people, and you will certainly be able to contribute to the technical side of the business.

Yes! If you enrol in the Bootcamp with Career Boost program, you can get job support from Lighthouse Labs' Career Services team after you arrive in Canada and prove your legal working rights.
