Coding Mentor / Teacher
Wednesday, August 30

Launch Phase: You will prepare and run coding workshops in Shanghai on topics such as:

  • Code a landing page in 2 hours with Bootstrap
  • APIs for beginners
  • Git and Github
  • Web components in CSS
  • Technical workflow in startups
  • Javascript for beginners
  • During 3 to 5 days a week, you'll teach programming and web-development to a class of 10 to 20 entrepreneurs learning ruby, HTML/CSS/javascript and ruby on Rails
  • From 9am to 10:30am (1h30): You will make a lecture on various topics (ruby basics, Database & SQL, Rails, frontend). We will give you slides and videos to prepare
  • From 10:30am to 5:30pm (5h30): You will help students on their coding challenges. Most of the time, students will be autonomous (when they read challenge's instructions, try to understand what they have to code and implement a first solution). Still, they will need your help when they don't understand an error or some important concept
  • From 5:30pm to 7pm (1h30): You will make a live-code to correct new challenges with the class projecting your screen on the wall

We will give you all the material (lesson, exercises, challenges) to help you prepare and run the classes. At the end of the bootcamp, during two weeks, you will help students code their MVPs (define their user-stories, split tasks, collaborate on Github with their team, and ship great products). Here is a testimonial of a lead teacher. It will give you an idea of what the job looks like!
