# Structure

Fullstack Foundations

The first part of your educational journey at Fullstack, Foundations is a "Programming 101" course designed to help you master the core concepts in programming that you will need to succeed at Fullstack.

It can be compared to the "pre-work" of other schools, but it is far more than just a long list of links to study independently. In Foundations, you will be completing real projects, practice coding assignments and will have access to live help from instructors in office hours. You will also have access to an internal "Stack Overflow" and Learn.FS, our custom-built learning system. The work you put in during Foundations will pay off in a big way at Fullstack, so don't take this part of the journey lightly.

Fullstack Academy

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

We believe in mastering over memorizing, and so much of your learning will happen in hands-on workshops. We are confident that you will never before have encountered another learning environment filled with people who are this smart, passionate and humble.

Fullstack Flight

As you approach Fullstack's graduation day, our dedicated placement coordinator will begin the process of matching your interests with employers — a process that will continue weeks after graduation. We have a dedicated training program on technical interviewing, becoming a star contributor and engineering leadership. We'll also hold mock interviews, employer fairs and visits to startups to help you prepare. In short, we'll make sure you're ready!

To further ensure your skills stay sharp (and are improving) throughout the recruitment process, the post-Academy curriculum in Flight provides you the structure, projects and focus to help you adjust to life after Fullstack.

# What will I learn?


We build a solid core of programming fundamentals to catalyze a long and productive career in software development. Master the technologies that are currently in-demand and be ready and gain the foundation to learn the innovative technologies of the future.

I learned a ton and had a great time with Nimit and David, and I'm pretty sure I added more to my marketability to future employers [by taking the course] than in my two years at HBS!

Neda Navab

Harvard Business School

Nimit and David are extremely competent and interested in teaching. They also have the valuable background of entrepreneurs that make their knowledge and teaching much more relevant.

Brett Lewis

The Wharton School

Having tried other courses unsuccessfully, coding was intimidating to me. The course allowed me the time to fail at, and then grasp each concept.

Jeremy Cohen


The Founders

David and Nimit are both engineers who have each spent over 15 years programming, both professionally and as a hobby. They have built large e-commerce sites, Facebook games with 5 million+ users, enterprise healthcare software, on all different kinds of platforms.
