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.

Cutting-Edge Curriculum

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.

The stack we teach is 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.


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 technologies like 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.

Program Structure

Fullstack Foundations

Foundations is an intensive part-time course designed to help you master the core concepts of JavaScript before you get to campus. 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 from 9:30am to 6:30pm — many students stay 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 will happen through hands-on workshops and building projects. In your Senior phase, the CTO program will take you beyond software and mold you into a well-rounded engineer.

Career Success

In the 2nd half of your semester, our Career Success 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!

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

Customer Testimonails

A word of advice to older prospective students like myself. You may be frustrated where you are right now, but afraid to make the leap, to quit your job, to spend your savings on a bootcamp, to take three months to learn, to work 80 hours a week. I promise it's worth it.

Andrew Ash

Fullstack Academy is, by all measures, the best investment I have made to date, and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anybody considering it, especially those with little to no prior programming knowledge. I will note, however, that hard, consistent, and dedicated individual work is a must if you want to make the most out of the Fullstack investment.

Clement Mihailescu

The instructors are always available for one-on-one help and will take the time to guide you through questions and problems. Their level of engagement in each student's learning process is what sets Fullstack apart.

Within 4 weeks, I received 2 job offers at companies I was really excited about. During my interviews, both companies were pleasantly surprised by how knowledgable and capable a boot camp grad could be. Truly, I owe it all to Fullstack's education and preparation.
