Learning new technologies is how software engineers grow! This course is a step up in difficulty from the Web Applications course, aimed at giving you two short projects that challenge you to learn something new. Through one guided project and one project completely of your own creation, learn to integrate something (or two things) that you didn’t know already, and use these projects as a tool to grow your development knowledge.
The best way to learn new technologies is to incorporate them into a new project. Through two small projects, incorporate two technologies you haven’t used before and gain mastery of some new tools.
For those who have some programming experience and who might already know some web development technologies, this course is a great way to gain experience with web technologies while also expanding your own knowledge and toolset. Learn a new back end or front end technology through two projects of your own design. Each project will include a design meeting, followed by twice daily meetings to troubleshoot and keep you on track, as well as improve your code and project organization. Leave the course with two structured, managed projects under your belt, and increased knowledge and portfolio content.

Byte really understands what it takes to get a great job…I can genuinely say that the learning which Byte Academy provided me with, was pinnacle to receiving an offer.
Byte Academy has been fantastic… I really like launching myself into an immersive hands on program from day one. Where an experience like this teaches you the theory, but every moment is devoted to learning how to apply that theory.
The skills I learned helped me pivot into the tech industry. The base language of Byte, Python, is particularly valuable for anyone looking to get into data-intensive industries or roles (I recently accepted a position as a Data Integration Engineer).
Having exposure to CFD, I learned how mathematical models are used to solve analysis problems. I wanted to know the coding behind them and then do it myself. But it was implemented in C++, which has a hard learning curve. Recently learned about data science & since it was done using Python which is comparatively easier, I got interested in data science. Its scope for implementing improvements, optimizations & new practices based upon data analysis interested me. I can also go into machine learning & take advantage of the large data sets available. And also due to growing opportunities in the field.
I heard Python was the most comprehensive programming language so I wanted to learn it. I heard about Byte Academy from a friend studying there. Also, I wanted to return to India and Byte offered the perfect opportunity for me to do that. It also seemed like a small institution where I could get all the hands-on learning I need to learn to program.
My experience at Byte Academy Bangalore was a life changing one. I went from having no experience with coding to being very comfortable with Python and SQL. The experience was both challenging and exciting and requires a lot of hard work behind the scenes to keep up with the intense curriculum and work load. The teaching assistants were always helpful and very knowledgable. I would recommend this school to anyone without coding experience and especially to people who have a passion for working with computers. This was truly an amazing experience.

Greg originally learned Python as a scripting language for environmental mapping software and statistical analysis. He graduated with a BS in Environmental Science (environmental toxicology specifically) and minors in Economics and Biology. He then turned to web development which he found more fulfilling than statistics, though he has also done iOS development. His areas of interest include front-end development in React and statistical analysis in sports, primarily the NHL and European soccer. In his spare time, he enjoys playing soccer and visiting breweries, and is an avid homebrewer.
