WHY CODE, CLOUD & CYBER SECURITY?
Every year, more and more of us are storing our personal and company data “in the Cloud”. According to CIO, 2018 saw 96% of businesses implement cloud computing to make sure employees had easier access to company-wide data from anywhere, at anytime. For individuals, cloud technologies have also become the new normal. Many of us continue to migrate to the cloud so that the 2.5 billion gigabytes of data we produce daily is stored safely.
However, such enormous growth comes at a price. Year on year, cyber attacks and data breaches have grown just as aggressively and quickly as cloud technologies. The first half of 2019 saw 4.1 billion records exposed, and the threat of cyber security risks is not looking to decrease anytime soon. With countries like Australia only having 7% of the cyber security talent it needs, it’s important we begin to equip ourselves with the skills we need to keep our organisations and citizens safe.
Coder Academy’s new online Code, Cloud & Cyber Security Bootcamp enables you to become a cyber-aware Back End Developer capable of building scalable cloud solutions in just 10 months. Our developers graduate with a nationally recognised higher ed Diploma of IT, a chance to sit the esteemed AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner Exam, and the opportunity to participate in a 1 month optional internship in industry.
LEARNING IN OUR VIRTUAL CLASSROOM
Canvas allows you to interact with your instructor and peers, just as you would if you were learning in a face-to-face class. It also provides access to learning resources, video, audio, real-time sharing of presentations – and includes collaborative features such as a live whiteboard, breakout rooms and discussion boards. You will have the same level of access to our academic and student support teams that you would have on campus, plus a direct line to an amazing e-learning support team. Through the leading e-learning platform we have chosen, you will receive an equally rich, engaging, and hands-on learning experience on par with our on-campus delivery.

Technical skills aren't the only important factor in getting a job in Code, Cloud and Cyber. Coder Academy’s industry partners emphasise the importance of soft skills, which include collaboration, communication, management skills, and emotional intelligence. Agile methodology and other developer tools are also utilised in the classroom to emulate the real-world work environment.
Successful completion of assessments, coursework, and sufficient attendance will lead to the award of a higher education Diploma of Information Technology by the Academy of Information Technology.
The trainers for the Diploma of Information Technology are experienced educators and developers who make sure you are learning fundamentals of software development, assess your competence throughout the course and support you to get the most out of the learning opportunities offered in the course.
What if I don’t have a laptop?
You will need your own device to access your virtual classroom.
What laptop specs are required?
Please ensure your computer is 2015 or later with at least 8GB of RAM. You will have a better experience with a Mac or Linux but a computer with Windows 10 is also fine.
Are there any other requirements or equipment needed?
We will provide all software applications that are required throughout the course. Other than your own device and general stationery items there is nothing else you will need to bring.
What is the expected commitment outside of class hours? Will I have homework?
In order to complete the projects throughout the course students will need to spend time outside of class hours studying, practicing and working on assessments. The amount of time and effort you can put in will reflect what you get out of the course. It is suggested that students in the bootcamp would do at least 10 hours per week self-study. The more you put in, the more you will get out of it.
Is there a part time option?
The Code, Cloud & Cyber Bootcamp is designed to be an intensive and accelerated course, therefore no part time option is available.
Is this course available to International students?
The Code, Cloud & Cyber Bootcamp is a great first step for graduates and career changers looking to start careers and/or develop their skills toward the following roles:
- Back End Developer/Engineer
- DevOps Engineer
- DevSecOps Engineer
- Cloud Engineer
- Systems Administrator
At Coder Academy, we’re passionate about looking for ways we can encourage diversity in the tech workforce, particularly in information security. Women currently hold only 11% of cyber security positions globally, and only 28% of tech in Australia is female. Unfortunately, these stats are similar for many other minority groups.
To combat the lack of diversity in the field of information security, Coder Academy is proud to offer Diversity Scholarships for the upcoming intake of the Code, Cloud & Cyber Bootcamp. The scholarship will cover 50% of the total course fee to open the door for those who need it most.
All scholarship entries will be judged on an application form and video submission, and finalists will be determined following an interview.
