Our unique approach to helping students learn Unix development skills combines on-demand training with personal facilitation and comprehensive hands-on exercises to assure successful training and competence in the IT workplace. Our support staff provides personal setup assistance, guidance and lab equipment setup for each student. An instructor, who is an experience Unix developer, is assigned to each student to assist in completing lab exercises and to help with any questions about the Unix Developer Bootcamp content. Our Unix bootcamp is designed to be 50% lecture and 50% hands on exercises. Lab exercises are performed via direct high-speed access to a dedicated lab machine, providing responsive interaction and anywhere/anytime accessibility by the lab facilitator as well as the student.
Students in the Unix Developer Bootcamp will learn important commands, file system structure and navigation, and process creation and management in Unix environments, and will also gain comprehensive practice writing Korn and Bash shell scripts. Students will be introduced to all major C language elements including fundamental data types, flow control, and standard function libraries.
Upon completion of this program, students will have developed an appropriate knowledge base and hands-on development experience to code in a Unix environment, and will be able to pursue an entry-level C programming position in the workforce. The student could also pursue an entry-level C++ or Java Programming position, depending on which optional course is taken. Students will be able to work as a developer in these languages in either a Windows or Unix environment, since the program covers Unix environment fundamentals as well as shell scripting. If desired, a student would have sufficient knowledge to pursue a Linux Essentials certification from the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) after program completion.
Career Opportunities as a UNIX Developer
After successfully completing the Unix Developer Bootcamp, students will have a wide range of options. Students may elect to join the workforce in an entry-level capacity or pursue professional certifications. If desired, a student would have sufficient knowledge to pursue a Linux Essentials certification from the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) after program completion. If a student opts to join the workforce as a Unix developer, they have the skills to be well compensated and can expect to earn between $49,000 - $68,000 to start. With normal career progression students can earn into the six figures for annual compensation. With completion of the Unix Developer Bootcamp, a student’s skillset would be appropriate for programmer positions utilizing the C, C++, and/or Java programming languages in both Windows and Unix environments.
