Fullstack Academy is one of the most challenging educational experiences you’ll ever have.
Our part-time coding bootcamp curriculum is built to:
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.

What Are We Looking For?
Passion for Coding
You’ve demonstrated your passion by beginning to learn on your own and are determined to become a developer whether you get into Fullstack or not.
Whatever you have worked on so far, you’ve strived for excellence. You’re focused on growth for yourself and others.
We look for students who are considerate, understanding, helpful, and generally pleasant to be around.
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 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.
All students pay a $2,000 enrollment deposit upon acceptance.

During the last week of classes, New York Flex Immersive graduates present their final of three projects to fellow classmates at an evening of demos and can then use the full portfolio they’ve built to demonstrate their qualifications to employers.
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
Get the tools to build a long and successful career in software development.
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.
