Lab course

Lab course (weekly courses for four months + two months of development): Web service developer course: Global Geek audition, Android developer course Teaches practical skills and trains pro engineers capable of creating web services. After students learn the fundamental curriculum, they are offered a choice between the web service developer’s course and the Android developer’s course. Following a four-month intensive study of everything from server-side (PHP & Ruby on Rails) to front-end (Javascript & HTML 5) platforms, students will undertake a two-month graduation project, where leading active engineers & mentors will offer tutorials on GitHUB and provide complete coaching up to the launch of the service.
In the final “Global Geek Operation,” various businesses and seed accelerators will evaluate the services students have created, leading to a chance for the students to be scouted and receive investment funding

Weekly FlowWeekly flow of classes, communication, and the Digital Hollywood online school

  • Weekly Flow
  • After your weekly Saturday (or Sunday) class, you can work on your assignment while receiving support for our tutors, which will allow you to get a handle on the size of your assignment and its degree of difficulty. In the week following, you’ll come to grips with your programming assignment, and you’ll have until 23:59 the day before the next class to use the version control tools to upload your assignment. Also, before the next class begins, you can use our “flipped classroom” system to prepare for the session by reviewing Digital Hollywood teaching materials and taking a self-check test. There are also Partner Study sessions planned for each group where you can learn from fellow students.
    Approximately 8 to 15 hours will be required for each weekly assignment. We realize that busy working adults have many responsibilities, but our system is designed for students who are serious about their work. Hard work here will without a doubt reap benefits for you in the future.
