Firstly, he gives students some at-home materials before the Bootcamp even starts. All Bootcamp participants do some self-paced preparation before they meet each other. This way, the whole group has a basic understanding of the most important concepts before teamwork and collaboration is required of them.

The module lasts for 4 weeks, and the group slowly progresses by completing materials, tasks, homework, and a lot of reading.
