Before our semester starts, you will spend 2-4 weeks on your own working on learning basics. During this time, we will organize meet-ups and hold office hours where you can collaborate with future classmates and learn this material at your own pace.
The required course runs for 12 weeks, Monday through Friday from 9am to 6pm in New York. You may find yourself there longer to attend talks and to work on your projects. We believe in mastering over memorizing and so much of your learning will happen in a hands-on environment.
After you graduate Fullstack, we will help you find a great full-time job. We have a dedicated training program on technical interviewing, becoming a star contributor and engineering leadership. There will also be employer fairs, startup visits and mock interviews to help you prepare.
The tuition for one semester at Fullstack is $12,500. If you start your career with one of our hiring partners, we'll refund $4,000 of your tuition.
The next semester starts on April 14th, 2014 and goes through to July 11th, 2014. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, so the earlier you apply, the better your chances.
We are looking for students who are at the top of their game. Here are characteristics that will make you a successful student at Fullstack Academy.
You're passionate about coding. You have demonstrated this fact by trying to learn on your own in a significant way. You have the determination to become a developer whether you get into Fullstack or not.
Whatever you've been working on so far, you've been among the best. You are helpful and help others around you also succeed.
We like to live by a no-asshole policy. We look for students who are considerate, understanding, helpful and generally pleasant to be around.
Your time at Fullstack will be an intense journey. There will be both blood and glory. Are you ready to commit yourself to making it through?
Nimit and David are incredibly patient and knowledgeable, and their passion for this space is visible and very motivating!
Harvard Business School
I found the course to be incredibly useful. I’ve been independently trying to learn various elements of front end and computer programming and found it difficult to manage the process on my own. 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.
The Wharton School
I have to admit, after signing up for the 12 hour coding class with H4H, I was really nervous. I worried that the material would be over my head (I didn't even know what HTML was), or that I would burn out by lunch. Instead, I learned a ton, had a great time with Nimit and David, and I'm pretty sure I added more to my marketability to future employers in those 12 hours than in my two years at HBS!
Harvard Business 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. I am now significantly more confident writing and discussing code!
Nimit loves both writing code and teaching and so Fullstack is a true venture of love. Recently, he co-founded MBA Code School where he taught coding workshops at top MBA schools, co-founded bloomspot, a local offers startup with millions of users that was acquired by JPMorgan/Chase and worked as an engineering lead at Yahoo!. Nimit discovered his love for teaching while volunteer-teaching middle school students as part of the West Philly Tutoring Project.
David's been building and managing NYC engineering tech teams for many years at companies like RecycleBank, Gilt Groupe and BrightWire Media. David has previously worked as an engineer at Microsoft, IBM, Yahoo! and Deloitte Consulting but fell in love with the energy and spirit of teaching coding through MBA Code School.
Our Fall class will be kept intentionally small in size and so spots are limited. This means our Fall class is more selective but our students will also get unprecedented personal attention - almost like having a personal tutor.
