At the end of the week, you would have a clear idea of what testing is and would have sufficient knowledge to begin writing your own tests for your future projects.
Why does Google employ thousands of developers? Great developers build apps which are simple from a user experience standpoint but complex on the backend. Aside from building new features and testing new things out, a lot of engineering work goes to improving the code base for speed and ease of modification. In this week, you'll learn some how to speed your app up to prepare your app for scaling to more users.
Bitly helps shorten long URLs to look prettier when shared on social media, and helps track the number of clicks they received.
In Week 5, you will build your own version of Bitly that you will show off to your friends!

Beginners have a tendency to focus on what languages and what frameworks to learn. Which technology stack to first learn is not as important as understanding the fundamentals and paradigms of building applications. It is no different than building a house on a rock as opposed to sand. The reality is that languages and frameworks are easy to learn once your foundations are strong. Most experienced developers code in various languages/frameworks. You will find other courses or training programs that teaches you a specific technology or framework from day 1. To become a coder who can truly build anything, you need to understand core coding principals and how things work. Our program will help you with that.
Forget the lecture style learning. They are boring and ineffective, especially for coding. At NEXT Academy, we have minimal lectures. Instead, we learn in a fast-paced environment where hands-on coding is prioritized. Everyday, we give you a set of challenges that you have to solve. These challenges breaks down the learning into smaller bite-sized components to form a comprehensive understanding of software development.
Instructors are always available for questions. Everyone learns differently and have different questions. We maintain a healthy student-instructor ratio to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to ask questions. As beginners, the real challenge in learning how to code is in asking the right questions. Mentors are there to guide students to simplify complex thoughts. Over time, students become good at asking the right questions which allows them to be independent enough to build things on their own.
Perhaps you have tried to learn to code before and the greatest barrier to seeing any form of progress is consistency. Our program is designed to to last no more than 3 months but as impactful as a year long learning in universities. Everyday, morning till late, you'll be coding at least 70% of the time. This ensures your learning to be progressive and fast. It's also a lot of fun to be in such an immersive environment.
Stop learning on your own. If you have ever tried learning to code on your own either through books or online courses, you may notice how hard it is when you get stuck or feel demotivated. At NEXT Academy, you will meet fellow students who are equally as excited as you to learn. We do not differentiate A students or C students. Everyone has the same ambition of becoming good with code.
