By the end of the second week, you'll have built and deployed your app. By week 3, you'll have extended it into your minimum viable product (MVP) and be ready to start testing with users.
If applicable, we'll provide a tool to help you get your first 50 users from the Bootcamp cohort itself. Previous Myntor projects that have achieved 100+ users include:

Django is an industry-standard Python web development framework, and is used to build apps in social media (Instagram), e-commerce (Shopify), music (Spotify), transportation (Uber), and AI/ML (Myntor). It comes with a built-in database, user management, admin, and security protocols that you normally need to build and manage, and which can be easily swapped with other technologies as your app develops. This enables you to build a high quality app right out of the box, and then extend it in a way that will be maintainable by other engineers as you grow your team.
Over the course of three weeks (about 24 hours total), you'll go from coding novice to building your own web app. Click the weeks below for more detail.
Every Python Django app fundamentally consists of a few key components: database, user management/admin, models, views, and templates. We'll build these first, deploy them onto a public URL, then provide additional optional tutorials and 1-on-1 live mentorship to extend this architecture to build your MVP.
This allows you to scale your team by building your product so it will be compatible with the 10.1M Python developers worldwide.
Learning how to code can be hard.
This bootcamp is designed around providing continuous support to help you when you get stuck. As you learn, you'll be joined by Bumblebee, our conversational AI, to answer your questions and help if you get frustrated or stuck.
Bumblebee is a first-of-his-kind conversational AI designed to help guide you through building your own Python web app. If you get stuck, ask 'Bee!
Whether it's setting up your virtual environment, searching for a bug, or launching your product, our goal is to provide resources that empower the next generation of builders who will address the world's most important problems.
Instant answers 24/7, delivered by our conversational AI.
Real-time chat with other people working on the same lesson at the same time.
Weekly office hours with a live instructor over both chat and Zoom.
Weekend peer review to answer questions like "how did you do that?"
...and our subReddit, r/myntor!
How much does it cost?
We charge $199 for the Bootcamp - this allows us to continue building tools and providing feedback to increase student success rates! We really want to help you build something awesome.
What's the time commitment?
Generally, this takes a total of 12-15 hours, but some students move faster or slower, which is ok! Most people have deployed their app to a public URL by the middle of the 2nd week.
Is this live or asynchronous?
It's asynchronous! Your cohort buddies though are generally on all the time, and instructors have office hours almost every day during the week. So no matter what time you're building, there will be people and AI to help if you get stuck!
Are there prerequisites?
A laptop computer that you can install programs onto, an internet connection, and a desire to build a useful app. No prior Python knowledge is required.
I could just watch videos on YouTube. Why Myntor?
Building a webapp is hard, and not everyone can do it by just watching YouTube videos. High quality, fast feedback is usually the key to learning something quickly and well - and that's what Myntor provides.
What do I get after the course?
You'll have a publicly accessible webapp which you can use to start a company, show prospective employers, or use in your college admissions. Python and Django are industry tools used at some of the world's most valuable companies and organizations, including Instagram, Facebook, Spotify, Uber, and NASA.
