Bootcamp Prep Online is taught by Fullstack’s founders

How many bootcamp founders do you know who still teach regularly?

When you take Bootcamp Prep Online, you’ll be taught by Fullstack Academy co-founders David and Nimit, who each have more than 17 years’ worth of programming experience.

They worked together at Yahoo, built an educational games company with millions of players, co-founded and sold tech start-ups—and are now on your screen, teaching you to code... and sneaking in a dad joke or two.

Instructors are amazing and very helpful! I would recommend this course to all my friends.

The Bootcamp Prep program was exactly what I needed in order to pass the Fullstack entrance exam. It was not only informative but enjoyable.

Michael Romani

Getting to do pair programming with other beginners gave me tons of confidence even though I was definitely one of the most beginner beginners in the class. AND, not to mention, I was able to get into Grace Hopper about three weeks after the course was over, something I was not sure I was ready for at all prior to taking the course!

The deeper sense of understanding JavaScript that I received from the Bootcamp Prep course allowed me to approach my application and interview process with confidence.

Required pre-work for Prep in a Week and Prep in a Month

When you sign up, you’ll receive instant access to the Bootcamp Prep prework module, which must be completed before the first day of class.

In the pre-work module, you'll watch 5 lecture videos — taught by Fullstack Academy founders David and Nimit — then do some coding challenges to make sure you understand the concepts. Once you have tried the problems, you watch solution videos to see a detailed walk-through of the answer to each problem.

The pre-work takes about 10 hours to complete and, once you have successfully completed it, you'll know you are prepared to do well in Bootcamp Prep!
