Frequently Asked Questions

The future of web development has moved toward sophisticated, responsive, and dynamic single-page applications running in the browser. Apps like Gmail, Asana, Trello, Facebook, and Google Maps have redefined what users expect from web applications and what developers need to deliver. Another plus point is that once you master JS, you'll be eligible to join Metana's advanced solidity bootcamp. 

After observing these trends, plus conducting lots of research and conversations with industry experts, we’ve come to the conclusion that full-stack JavaScript is the future of web development. Consequently, it is what we primarily immerse our students in at Metana.

What about Ruby on Rails, Python, or other engineering languages? Why are other schools teaching these—or a combination of these—instead?

Ruby on Rails has been instrumental in consolidating many best practices in back-end web development—making it easier for developers to build large sites organized. Meanwhile, Python has completely revolutionized the way sites record and use data—and we do teach Python foundational skills in our Data Analytics bootcamps.

However, research and use cases show that today’s web runs on highly interactive and responsive experiences that don’t require a page refresh at every step. As a result, single-page applications (SPAs) written in JavaScript using frameworks like React or Vue.js make JavaScript one of the best programming languages to learn.

JavaScript also offers professional advantages over other languages. Metana graduates are well-rounded coders with both a thorough understanding of the full stack and programming concepts in general. We’ve learned through years of tech education that students may more easily understand and master other coding languages once they’ve learned full-stack JavaScript. This gives our graduates a more in-demand skill set that separates them from the competition and widens the range of coding job types they’re qualified for.

All our coding bootcamps are thorough, comprehensive, immersive, and rigorous. We’re backed by multi-year experience in online tech training to deliver consistent, in-demand coding curricula and digital learning tools in a remote environment.

Specifically, the  Software Engineering Bootcamp is designed to support you in leveling up your coding skills, building a robust portfolio, and launching a career in tech.

Metana's Full stack software engineering bootcamp is a 4-month (6 Months Part time) program delivered in online sessions. Participants will have access to online course materials and lectures.

Both intermediate and beginner coders are welcome.  No matter where you are in your coding journey, you can hone the skills, knowledge, and practical experience of a professional web developer with Metana.

For the full-time program, with participants expected to devote approximately 40 hours per week to coursework and projects.

If done part time, 20-30 hours per week is sufficient. 

Yes, participants who successfully complete the bootcamp will receive a certificate of completion.

You must be proficient in English. 

Some scholarships and financial assistance may be available for eligible participants.

The recent leap in artificial intelligence (AI) tools will enhance the productivity of the software engineer like nothing before it. Perhaps the greatest recipients of this technology will be our graduates, and those just starting out or entering the software engineering field.

That is why we’re proud to teach the AI-powered tool GitHub Copilot in our instructor-taught curriculum in all our coding bootcamps. At Metana we believe that new coders and new software engineers should learn foundational skills before being introduced to these types of productivity-enhancing tools.

A BIG YES. We teach students how to use the AI-powered tool GitHub Copilot in all our coding bootcamps. We teach students how to integrate Copilot into their software development workflow during the later modules of all of our coding bootcamps, after proficiency in programming has been obtained. Students will use this tool to build a portfolio project (a non-trivial application) to demonstrate their ability to evaluate and blend AI-generated code with their own.

Our instructional teams, which are composed of industry veterans, have managed the responsible use of productivity-enhancement tools throughout their careers and are well-equipped to teach this newest tool.

Pros & cons

The limitations of self-learning for achieving professional success and landing a job!

⌛️Outdated Resources

We’ve all been there – endlessly scrolling through pages of free online resources, only to discover that most of them are outdated and useless. It’s a common problem that can hinder your learning progress.

😵‍💫 Distractions

Distractions can easily derail your learning journey, especially in a world filled with endless distractions. Staying motivated and on track can feel nearly impossible without some form of accountability or support system.

⚠️ Lack of clear roadmaps

The lack of clear roadmaps can be a major roadblock for learners. But finding one that actually works in practice can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack. Often, the roadmaps that look good on paper turn out to be impractical and difficult to follow.

🤷‍♂️ No guidance

Without the right guidance, learning can feel like an aimless and frustrating pursuit. It’s like trying to hit a target blindfolded, hoping to get lucky. It’s no wonder many learners struggle to stay motivated and make progress. The absence of a mentor or guide can leave you feeling lost and directionless, unsure of how to improve or what steps to take next. If you’re serious about achieving your goals, don’t go it alone. Seek out a mentor who can provide the support, advice, and direction you need to succeed.

😩 Finding a job

It’s frustrating when you’ve put in all the hard work to learn a new skill, only to find that landing a job in that field can be an uphill battle. You may spend countless hours tailoring your resume and cover letter, but often receive no response or feedback. And even if you do manage to snag an interview, the pressure is on to make yourself stand out as the ideal candidate, with no clear direction on how to do so. It’s no wonder that finding a job can feel like an overwhelming and demotivating experience.

🤔 Doubt in knowledge & skills

Have you ever questioned whether you’re truly ready to tackle the challenges? With new vulnerabilities and exploits constantly emerging, it’s hard to feel confident that you’ve truly mastered the skills you need to create safe and effective applications.

🫤 Staying up-to Date

Keeping up with the ever-changing landscape of technology can be a daunting task. There’s always something new to learn, and it can be hard to know where to start. Plus, with so many other responsibilities vying for your attention, finding the time to stay up to date can feel impossible. And even when you do find the time, how can you be sure you’re getting the right information from the right sources?
