The first part of the boot camp takes place over the course of a week during which participants are introduced to scrum agile development principles and earn a Mendix Rapid Developer certificate.
In the second part of the boot camp, participants independently create an application using Mendix modeling tools. Successful participants are required to develop a user-friendly Mendix application in a fictitious practical environment that meets specific business requirements.
