I’ll be joining Facebook in July, and like everyone else, ll’ be going through the Bootcamp.

Throughout my career I’ve been working with Java stack and bit of node.

Any advice on brushing up any specific programming languages to make life a little easy during early days??

    Don’t prepare for boot camp. Enjoy this time without long term job responsibilities.

    You will have plenty of time to learn new things during boot camp. Most engineers we hire have never worked with php before.

    Worst case, you spend a couple of extra weeks in boot camp before joining a team with no cost or negative impact to you.

    How do you join a bootcamp? And do you automatically get a job offer?

      When you join Facebook, the first 6-8 weeks will be in Bootcamp. Your primary responsibility during bootcamp is to learn as much as you can about the various code stacks and technologies used at Facebook and to find a team you will work on after you finish. We do team selection after you join so you have the opportunity to make an informed decision about what excites you with access to confidential information and being able to talk to people on the team and to sit with them to see how you like each potential team.

    You’ll be working on all kinds of languages during boot camp ... you need to just be a quick learner and the tasks aren’t that hard
