A Bit of Inspiration: Meet Katsuki Chan
Katsuki Chan, a Developer Bootcamp Instructor at Bits of Good studying computer science at Georgia Tech, shares his experience as a developer and bootcamp instructor, providing insight into what Georg
To allow students to further explore their specific areas of interest, BoG has considered and experimented with implementing “tracks,” allowing students to specialize in either front-end or back-end development. For now, only one track is offered each semester.
“We want to go back to the two-track bootcamp and teach both front-end and back-end,” Chan said. “We hope that going back to that format will allow bootcampers to learn about what they’re interested in. We’re also thinking of experimenting with a larger bootcamp size!”
With a variety of hands-on projects designed to contextualize the content covered in lectures, the bootcamp is a great opportunity for students to explore their interests in web development. That said, Chan emphasizes that the bootcamp is a significant time commitment and requires several hours of work each week.
“The Developer Bootcamp is interactive and thorough, requiring a consistent time commitment of several additional hours beyond our meeting times each week. [However, as a bootcamper,] you get exposed to [how we do social good] in the organization while also [working] directly [on] the technical details that drive our web apps.”
Whether you’re interested in learning the skills required for the work you’d do as a developer at Bits of Good, participating in social and professional events throughout the semester, or meeting like-minded people in the organization, the bootcamp is the perfect opportunity for you!
