ROOTs Technology

Learn web development basics from the ground up

About Us

ROOTs Technology is a tutoring, and mentoring service, for those interested in learning the basics of web development. Being self-taught engineers ourselves, we've curated a curriculum of online, interactive, resources to help beginners start teaching themselves, while making ourselves available to mentor and guide them along the way. We offer various forms of support to our learners such as email support and video tutoring sessions, where we help the learner address any code-related questions they're dealing with, and provide insight into what it's like working as a software engineer. Our curriculum and tutoring service is a cheaper alternative to the expensive coding bootcamp options that saddle students with loans, and no engineering job.

Although no-one can guarantee a learner a job after learning to code, we do our best to help the learner build a solid software development foundation, and have plenty of projects for their portfolio, at a reasonable price. When learning to code, having a mentor there to ask questions along the way makes a big difference in crossing the finish line, and that's what we provide.
