Students in over 150 countries pursue CIE examinations each year to gain entry into prestigious universities worldwide, including those in the UK, USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. Brickfields Asia College (BAC), a Cambridge International Associate Partner is proud to offer the CIE A-Level programme which would enable students to progress into degrees in Accounting, Business Management, Commerce, Economics, Finance, ITC, Communication, Law, Marketing and Mass Communication amongst others. This last year 4 of our students achieved the honour of being "Top Student in the World"!! Students should consider whether the Standard or Express Route will suit them better. With the Express Route, students can complete their A-Levels in just 11 months, from January to November and are able to start their first year Degree in Business or Law in the January and actually begin their second year of their Degree Course in the September, saving a year on their overall studies - Graduate faster. We generally restrict students who take this option to 2 A-Levels, but this is the normal entrance level to our UK university partners where in most cases students in Law or Business study their first two years in Malaysia then go the the UK for their final year, unless they would prefer to study all three years in just one country. However for those wishing to take 3 or more subjects the Standard Route will be the best option and this takes around 18 months to complete, after which time students can decide whether to continue their studies with us or attend another university, either way we will be happy to advise you of the best option.

Then, we'll dive into what we've created and help you really understand what's going on. We'll show you how to work with models, views, and controllers to quickly add new features to your app. By the end of this course, you'll be ready to create basic web apps in Rails. What you'll learn Creating Rails apps Models Views Controllers Creating an App We'll create a new Rails app, and a simple resource. A resource is something you want users to be able to create, read, update, and delete instances of. With just a couple Rails commands, your site will be ready to run and fully interactive! Handling Requests In this stage, we'll take a closer look at the resource we've created, and show you how Rails handles requests. Using the Rails Console The Rails console is useful when you need to do an operation on many model objects at once, or to look at model attributes that you haven't yet added to your views. We'll show you how to update model objects using the console. Adding a Model Attribute Our app is able to store titles for our posts, but we forgot to add a post body to hold the actual post content. In this stage, we're going to fix that. First, we need to add a column to the database, so that our post model objects can store the value of their body attributes. Then we'll need to update our views to let us show those values. And finally, we'll need to update the controller to allow new body text to be submitted from HTML forms.

Ronin (Junior Web Developer Course)

Makers Academy
Online Full time 16 weeks June 2017 United Kingdom London

Ronin is a course like no other - totally online, highly immersive, full-time, and entirely focused on getting you into your first job as a developer. [+]

Become a Junior Web Developer 100% REMOTE | 100% FULL TIME | 100% REAL JOBS What is Ronin? Ronin is a course like no other - totally online, highly immersive, full-time, and entirely focused on getting you into your first job as a developer. We've spent the last couple of years researching and refining how to transform people into software engineers, but not everyone can move to London to join us at our in-person campus. In February 2015, we launched Ronin: a course that leverages everything we've learned at Makers Academy to help people all over the world learn to code - from the comfort of their own home. Does it really work? We're at an early stage, but results so far have been incredibly positive, with graduates of Ronin I taking an average of 28 days to find a job. Since then, we've launched the 3rd & 4th Ronin courses, even bigger and even better, and they SOLD OUT! Register now for the next three releases of our fantastic remote learning option. Places are strictly limited, so apply now before it's too late. Step-by-step education One of the main problems people have when learning to code is knowing what order to learn things in. Should you learn HTML first, then Ruby? Or perhaps start with Javascript and work your way to Rails? We remove this barrier with our curriculum - developed with the finest software engineers - walking you through the best way to learn each of the pieces individually, then how to fit them all together, always using the latest best practices. Unlike all the other online or remote programmes, you won't just learn syntax. You'll learn to become an engineer. You'll learn the principles of Software Craftsmanship. You'll learn to write elegant, readable, beautiful code, and you'll be fielding multiple job offers as a result. Pair program Learning how to code can be challenging - but it's much easier if you do it with other people. Ronin is the first online and remote learning programme that connects you with other learners, allowing you to pair-program remotely with them in real-time. Peer-to-peer model The thing that makes Makers Academy so special is we aren't like a normal school. Yes, we have coaches, but no, we don't spend all day 'in the classroom'. We use a peer-driven model, so you learn through creative, project-driven development, just like in the workplace. While you'll have access to an experienced course facilitator who'll guide you at all times, provide workshops and breakout sessions and giving help when you get stuck, the vast majority of your learning will be supported by the other members of your cohort. Ronin is the first online/offline proposition for the person who's serious about learning how to code. There are a lot of resources out there for learning about small pieces of the puzzle, but Ronin is the first one that brings everything together, giving you a clear path to a job as a junior web developer, and a support system that will push you over the finishing line. Enrolling as a student on Ronin will mean that you spend the next 12-16 weeks simulating life as a developer, doing daily stand-ups and working in teams on real projects. This puts you in a fantastic position after you graduate, As you have a tonne of experience that most beginners could only hope for. Real jobs at the end Unlike all the other 'Learn to Code Online' options out there, graduates of Ronin finish the programme as highly employable 'artisan' developers, just like the students at Makers Academy HQ. Once you graduate, our hiring team will work with you just like they do with our regular students, giving interview training, doing practice technical tests, and introducing you to our Hiring Partner Network.
