Testimonials

By the time I left Fullstack, I felt like I’d fast-tracked my way into an elite professional network of ridiculously skilled developers... There’s nowhere I would have rather enrolled than Fullstack.

Sam Lau

Developer, Percolate

Fullstack Academy is the fastest and most effective way to learn to code today. I know that acquiring the same knowledge would have taken at least 5X longer without Fullstack, if not more.

Nathan Grotticelli

Founder, unightlife.io

You can't find better instructors when it comes to learning development because these two know their shit. Not only are they great teachers with reputable Software Engineer resumes, but they are great guys that you end up becoming good friends with. I highly recommend Fullstack Academy to anyone considering a bootcamp.

Tara Lerias

Developer, Sport195

Fullstack has been by far one of the best experiences I've had so far in my life. A place with a great community and wonderful teachers. I'm pretty sure I learned more in three months there than I did during my entire 4 years at college. I made great friends, and David and Nimit are great mentors. Definitely worth it.

The Program

Our goal is to make you a strong professional developer—good enough that we'd want to hire you at our own startups.

# Structure

The Fullstack curriculum is divided into three major courses: Foundations, the Academy and Flight.

Fullstack Foundations

The first part of your educational journey at Fullstack, Foundations, is an intensive introductory course designed to help you master the core concepts of programming.

Foundations is not just a list of links to online tutorials. In Foundations, you'll be working on a targeted core curriculum with live instructors and real coding projects. You'll be prepared to hit the ground running when you come to campus.

Fullstack Academy

While the required on-campus Fullstack course runs weekdays from 9:00am to 6:30pm — many students find themselves staying much longer to attend talks and to work on projects. You'll truly be in an immersive environment - like moving to Beijing to learn Chinese.

Much of your learning at the Academy will happen in hands-on workshops. You'll never before have encountered another learning environment with classmates who are this smart, passionate and humble.

Fullstack Flight

In the 2nd half of your semester, our placement team will begin matching your interests with employers — a process that will continue after graduation. With our dedicated training program on technical interviewing and becoming a star developer, we'll make sure you're ready!

To ensure your skills continue improving throughout the recruitment process, the Flight curriculum will provide you the structure, projects and focus you need to keep learning and growing.

Being a Fullstack Developer isn't about knowing everything, but about being fearless in the face of new technologies and challenges.
