From zero to .NET hero in 9 weeks with FireBootCamp

I am proud to announce the launch of the best training course we have ever done. It takes a beginner .NET developer to a *Job Ready* world class junior developer in 9 weeks.

Long story short, they get thrown into the fire, continuously mentored, while building a real world app. They will successfully complete 4 sprints. I called it FireBootCamp.

I’ve approached this very differently from all the training SSW has done for many years for companies around Australia. It has aspects of the best practices we’ve learned presenting at conferences around the world and lecturing at the University of Technology Sydney for many years.  We all learn better by doing and working with others. The successful applicants become “FireBootCampers” spending 40-60 hours per week for 9 weeks. They will learn the right way to do .NET enterprise applications using a series of generally accepted patterns and practices. Most teams will build an ASP.NET MVC app all the way from concept to deployment.

No one will get stuck. No one will go down the wrong path. They will be mentored by an SSW Solution Architect each day during the program and we believe this is one of the keys to success. Having an experienced architect help them get over the hurdles when they get stuck, teaching them on best practices and pushing them to work hard and work smart, will turn these new recruits into job ready coders.

Employers: At the end of the program we welcome you to join our Gala night where the students will show off the apps they have built. You will have the first opportunity to add a “FireBootCamper” to your team. So if you are looking to hire a passionate junior world class developer, then register at and be a part of the Gala night on 15th February 2013 at 2-6pm in Sydney, Australia. (If the demand is there, we may live stream the event.)

Job Seekers: If you want to be part of the action, build a great app and get great experience, become a “FireBootCamper” for the next 3 months.

The first FireBootCamp starts 16th December 2013 in Sydney. Get in early for a special half price introductory fee.
