They say there’s nothing in life for free, but that’s actually not true. It’s possible to change your career to the lucrative field of programming. And the best part? You can enrol on a free trial software development course with HyperionDev.
Not only do programmers receive higher-than-average salaries, they often enjoy perks such as flexible hours, remote days, extended leave and international travel. The HyperionDev free trial provides a fantastic opportunity to check out whether this is the right career step for you with no commitments. We’ll now take you step-by-step through the process of your free trial and what you can expect.
Signing Up: Free Trial Software Development Course
The top right hand corner of the HyperionDev website has an ‘Enroll Now’ link. Via this link you can choose your career ambition: Full Stack Web Development, Software Engineering or Mobile Development. (Read more here about the difference between Software Engineering and Web development.) You can also select a ‘not yet sure’ option. Alternatively, you can sample all of the bootcamps for an unlimited time and you can upgrade to the full experience whenever you’re ready.
Free Trial: What You Can Expect
Once you’ve signed up for your free trial, you can expect to encounter the following:
To Start Coding Early and To Write Code Regularly
The aim of the bootcamps (and the free trial software development course of your choosing) is to get you coding right away. You’ll complete a number of tasks (as well as a capstone projects once you sign up for the full course). You’ll also need to complete compulsory coding exercises.
Your code will be reviewed by a human. This is a key difference between HyperionDev and other bootcamps. This means that the quality of your code is reviewed, which can’t happen with an automated code review.
If you upgrade to a bootcamp, you’ll be assigned your own personal mentor who will review your code within 48 hours of submission. Learning 1:1 via a mentor has a number of specific advantages, including:
- Making you truly fluent as a developer (automated code checking is equivalent to a spell check for writing; you can’t write a world-class essay with just good spelling – you need the right tone, fact, grammar and style; a mentor will help you achieve this).
- Ensuring you receive on-demand help when you’re stuck or frustrated.
- Exposing you to the industry standard from day one. Developers in the real world have their work assessed by senior developer though the technique of code review. HyperionDev utilises this technique from the first day.
Free Trial: What You’ll Cover
In the Full Stack Web Developer free trial, you’ll cover the following:
- Industry Knowledge (including where to begin with coding, why you should learn how to code, software development as a career, ‘The Coder Mindset’, choosing the right programme and joining the HyperionDev online community)
- Creating an online portfolio (including the reasons for creating such a portfolio, tools to get started, HTML basics and submitting your portfolio)
In the Software Engineering free trial, you’ll cover the following:
- Industry Knowledge
- Introduction to Python (including an introduction to variables, casting, programing with numbers, working with strings, an introduction to algorithms and if statements)
In the Mobile Developer free trial, you’ll cover the following:
- Industry knowledge
- Java for Android Developers (including an introduction to Android and Java, variables, variable arithmetic, working with variables, order of operations, errors, casting, getting input from the user, if statements and putting it all together)
Now that you know what the free trials are about, think about signing up for a free trial software development course via HyperionDev. There are many advantages to a free trial including:
- Checking out, at no cost, whether you enjoy a particular area of programming.
- Swapping between the different bootcamps and getting an extensive overview of all the fields.
- Learning some initial concepts which you can then extend on your own or via bootcamp upgrade. Remember, with the upgrade you’ll have access to your your own personal mentor.
