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. 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 - Flex Immersive

Fullstack Flex Immersive covers the same curriculum as our full-time course, but it is structured in a part-time format over 24 weeks. You'll build many fullstack applications: using MongoDB for data storage, Express and Node.js on the backend, and AngularJS on the front-end to create dynamic and real-time application interfaces.

Fullstack Flight

In the 2nd half of your course, 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 for whatever your next step after Fullstack is.

Learn more about the course schedule.

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

# 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 gain the foundation to learn the innovative technologies of the future.

FullStack Web Development

Our namesake is our promise. You'll learn end-to-end web development using Node.js/Express, JavaScript, Angular.js, HTML5, and CSS3. You'll develop and hone your code-sense for seeing problems and imagining innovative ways to solve them in code.

Best Practices and Tools

Professional development is a lot more than just writing code. You'll learn best-practices and how to use all the right tools, from source control to web inspector to analytics.

Developer Culture

Fullstack will immerse you in one of the most vibrant tech communities in the world. You'll contribute to open source, attend tech meetups, win hackathons and build a strong network in Silicon Alley.

Q3. Do I have to participate in Hiring Day after Fullstack?

You will have the opportunity to participate in a Hiring Day after Fullstack if you wish to explore development positions, however, there is no requirement to do so. You are welcome to apply your code-ninja skills to make your existing job more awesome!

Q4. How long is the Fullstack Flex Class?

The Fullstack Flex Immersive course is 24 weeks long.

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 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.

Tara Lerias

Developer, Priceline

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.
