Fullstack Academy New York

Fullstack Academy is one of the most challenging educational experiences you’ll ever have.

Our part-time coding bootcamp curriculum is built to:

Fullstack
  • Help you master a single in-demand language: fullstack JavaScript
  • Expose you to pair programming and team projects
  • Give you a leg up in the working world

Combine all that with top-notch career counseling and you’ll graduate with the tech skills and career know-how to land your next position and build the career you want.

Strong Outcomes for All

You don’t have to have worked in web development or gotten a degree in CS to be successful here. If you can be disciplined enough to learn the basics on your own and pass our assessment and dedicate yourself to software engineering for 28 weeks, you can emerge with the training required to land a job in tech.

Fullstack Flex grads go on to get hired at:

From immense challenge to immense reward—with all the support you need along the way.

We take a holistic approach to learning.

Moving your career forward is about more than knowing how to do a job; it’s about knowing how to get a job—and having enough personal and professional support to make it happen.

So while you’ll definitely learn JavaScript here, the most important thing you’ll learn is how to learn JavaScript—so you can then go on to learn other languages throughout your career.

Every employer will use a different stack, and the stacks employers are using today won’t look anything like the ones in use a decade from now.

All our hiring partners agree: JavaScript is in demand now, but an employee’s most important skill is the ability to learn new technology quickly. And by completing the part-time coding bootcamp at Fullstack Academy New York, you’ll prove you can do just that.

We don’t make you do it alone.

We provide a full suite of instructors, career counselors, program leads, and fellows—not to mention a cohort full of dedicated learners—to keep you motivated and inspire you to aim higher and work harder.

Our number one rule is “No assholes.”

We strive to create an inclusive environment where we acknowledge and work to reduce bias, discuss issues of inequality in the industry, offer advice for overcoming obstacles, and expose students to opportunities to change the culture of tech.

The people you learn from and with will form the professional network that helps you find and get work. But more than that? They’ll be your friends. They’ll commiserate with you when times are tough, motivate you to keep pushing, and celebrate with you when you succeed.

How It Works

Each Fullstack coding bootcamp is divided into 3 phases

  • 1
    Foundations Off-Campus | Part-Time
  • 2
    Junior Phase On-Campus | Part-Time
  • 3
    Senior Phase On-Campus | Part-Time

In this phase, all students rise to the same technical level before the start of the on-campus immersive.

Program Overview

  • Off-campus
  • Part-time 15–30 hrs, depending on skill level
  • Min. 4 weeks to complete
  • Regular timed assessments
  • Rolling start each Friday. Materials available once deposit & SEA submitted

Resources

  • Videos, workshops, projects
  • Experienced industry mentor
  • Discussion forum

Curriculum

  • HTML & CSS
  • Advanced JavaScript closure, scoping, prototypal inheritance, recursion
  • Web development environment
  • Intro to front-end vs. back-end development

FAQs

  • Foundations is required. Students may not opt out
  • Students must pass final checkpoint to move on to on-campus immersive
  • The sooner you enroll, the sooner you’ll get access to Foundations materials
  • Many students work part-tirne during Foundations

This is one of the most intense phases of the program. You will study:

1. Front-end development

User expectations of web and mobile applications have significantly increased in the last 10 years, and the sophistication of front-end development has increased to match it. You will study HTML5 and advanced CSS and go beyond with modern technologies like React.

2. Back-end development

You’ll take your JavaScript skills to the back-end, with Node.js and the amazing ecosystem of libraries that have made JavaScript the leader in next-generation back-end web engineering. You’ll master the use of APIs to connect to vast amounts of user data.

3. Databases

You’ll master data persistence by building your own SQL database engine, learning about popular SQL databases like Postgres, and integrating them into your applications.

At this point, you’ll have a solid understanding of the core technologies taught in the immersive program. It’s now time to put that knowledge to use by building fully functional web applications from scratch. You’ll continue to deepen your knowledge by solving real-world problems and learning best practices.

1. Guided team project

You’ll work in a group of 3–4 students to build an e-commerce site and will build all the components of a web application from the ground up, including the front-end, back-end, and database.

2. Personal project

You’ll come up with an idea for a web or mobile application and build it from scratch. You’ll take design considerations into account, like user experience and information architecture. You’ll learn new technologies or libraries to complete this project, which will help you learn how to learn new areas in software development.

3. Capstone project

You’ll work with a team of students to come up with an ambitious idea for an app and build it out over 4 weeks. This will be the most impressive project in your portfolio and will demonstrate your full understanding of software development and industry best practices.

Facilitated Connections

While many part-time coding bootcamp students are looking to either move up or move into a more technical role at their current place of work, other New York Flex Immersive grads are looking for new opportunities. That’s why we offer Flex grads the chance to attend Launch Day, our in-house job fair exclusively for Fullstack Academy and Grace Hopper grads. It’s a full afternoon of speed interviews, plus a networking happy hour with 20–30 actively hiring employer partners like Google, JPMorgan Chase, Zola, Black Rock, Data Dog, and many more.

Master Series

Master series

We know learning doesn’t end on graduation day. That’s why we’ve created the Master Series, a collection of workshops and lectures designed to deepen your understanding of key computer science concepts and industry best practices. These materials give you the tools and confidence you need to keep moving forward in your new career.
