Cutting-Edge Curriculum

We teach computer science using fullstack JavaScript. JavaScript is here in a big way and it is growing bigger every day. This surge in popularity is driven by the demands of today's internet users for real-time, interactive and dynamic applications, built in JavaScript. These are exactly the type of projects you'll build at Fullstack.

Read more about why we choose JavaScript.

Program Structure

Fullstack Foundations

Foundations is an intensive part-time course designed to help you master the core concepts of development and JavaScript before you even get to campus. We want you to get the most from your time with us and Foundations gets you mentally ready for the challenge ahead.

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 through hands-on workshops and building projects. Near the end of the curriculum, the CTO program will take you beyond software and molds you into a well-rounded and professional engineer.

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 with the structure, projects and focus you need to keep learning and growing.

What will I learn?

Being a great software engineer means not only being fluent with the latest frameworks and programming languages, but also having an evolved intuition for writing code that is efficient, secure and maintainable. The Fullstack curriculum is designed to help you build a strong theoretical core as well as master higher level technologies in software development for the web.


Computer Science

We stand on the shoulders of giants - become fluent in the use of data structures, algorithms and run-time analysis. We'll also study best practices in software engineering: Object-Oriented Design, asynchronous programming and software design.

Front-end Development

User expectations of Web and Mobile Applications have significantly increased in the last 10 years and the level of sophistication of front-end development has increased to match it. We'll study HTML5 and CSS and go beyond with modern frameworks like Angular and React.

Back-end Development

Take your JavaScript skills to the backend with Node.js and the amazing ecosystem of libraries that have made JavaScript the leader in next-generation backend web engineering. Master the use of APIs to connect to vast amounts of user data.

Databases

Master data persistence by building your own SQL database engine, learning about new NoSQL databases like Redis and Mongo and how to integrate these into your applications.

Tools & best practices

Git, text editors, Test-Driven Development, virtual machines... know the state of the art tools that developers are using to increase the productivity of their work.

CTO Program

We know your dreams don’t stop at making your first app. Our curriculum includes the CTO Program, breakout modules that get you ready to become a leader in the exciting and in-demand software development industry.

What will I learn?

Computer Science

Before mastering the higher-level technologies in software development for the web, it is vital to understand the underpinnings of lower-level theory. This is why your journey at Fullstack will start with a deep dive into the fundamentals of Computer Science.

  • Data structures
  • Algorithms
  • Big-O space & time analysis

Front-end Development

JavaScript is redefining what it means to be a modern web application. We'll study design patterns of "Single Page Web Applications" using AngularJS. You will know how JavaScript frameworks are used to build advanced web client applications like Gmail, Facebook and Google Maps.

  • Angular.js & JavaScript MVC
  • HTML & CSS
  • JavaScript frameworks

Back-end Development

JavaScript is an incredibly flexible and popular language, quickly becoming the "lingua franca" of the web. Node.js, a platform built on Chrome's JavaScript runtime, allows JavaScript to run server-side. This makes JavaScript the only programming language that runs in the front-end and back-end.

  • Node.js
  • Services & APIs
  • System architecture

Databases

Study how we efficiently and scalably store data in our web apps. From SQL to newer trends like NoSQL, MongoDB and client-side storage, master how data can be made, validated, synced and stored. We'll also build our own lightweight database to learn how the internals work.

  • SQL
  • MongoDB
  • ORM Tools

Tools & best practices

Learn the tools of the developer trade, from version control systems to text editors and the command line. The curriculum also covers test driven development and design patterns, giving students the opportunity to write optimized, scalable code.

  • Git version control
  • Shell & systems
  • Test-driven development

The knowledge, connections, and opportunities I've gained from the Fullstack experience well exceeded my expectations. Fullstack was one of the best professional decisions I've ever made.

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.

You can't find better instructors when it comes to learning development because these two know their stuff. 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…

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…
