Students learn best by doing. As an NYC Web Development Fellowship student, you will first complete Fullstack's Bootcamp Prep course, before diving into the Immersive Program. The 17-week immersive curriculum is a unique educational program that combines lectures, workshops, projects, and more to help you gain a deep, practical understanding of our curriculum. During the process, you will build an impressive portfolio that demonstrates your skills as a developer.
Key points of the Bootcamp Prep curriculum will include:
Defining and invoking functions
Loops and truthy/falsey statements
Objects and multidimensional arrays
Approaching coding challenges and mock interviews
Completed directly following Bootcamp Prep, Foundations is a full-time, in-person beginning to our course that you will take for 4 weeks. You will work through the Foundations material on your own pace on-campus, to get ready for the immersive that starts in week 5.
In Foundations, you will develop a solid base of programming knowledge, allowing you to start the immersive portion of the course at an intermediate level, and at a fast pace.
This is one of the most intense phases of the program, when you will be working all day up to six days a week. You will study:
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.
You will master data persistence by building your own SQL database engine, learning about popular SQL databases like Postgres, and how to integrate these into your applications.
At this point, you will have a solid understanding of the core technologies taught in the immersive program. It is now time to put that knowledge to use by building fully functional web applications from scratch. You will continue to work full-time during this phase, while you deepen your knowledge by solving real-world problems and learning best practices.
Guided team project
You will 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.
You will come up with an idea for a web or mobile application, and build it from scratch. You will take design considerations into account, like user experience and information architecture. You will learn new technologies or libraries in order to complete this project, which will help you "learn how to learn" new areas in software development.
You will work with a team of students to come up with an ambitious idea for an app, and build it out over the final weeks of the immersive program. This will be the most impressive project in your portfolio, and will demonstrate your full understanding of software development and industry best-practices.
Following the core curriculum, all NYC fellows will be placed in a two month paid internship at an NYC tech company. With the skills gained during the core curriculum, all graduates will be able to make impactful contributions to a professional engineering team.
This internship will serve as valuable real-world work experience and provide fellows a comfortable and measured transition into their first software engineering role after graduation.
Following the internship portion of the fellowship, graduates will receive guidance and mentorship from Fullstack Academy’s career success team. Not only will alumni of the fellowship program have the benefit of Fullstack’s vast alumni network, they will also conduct regular check-ins, mock interview practice, periodic whiteboard-interview prep, and job search strategy sessions with our dedicated career professionals.
Fullstack’s Career Success modules have proven successful as graduates of the Immersive Program now work at some of the largest tech firms in the world, as well as hundreds of innovative and growing companies across NYC.
Build a portfolio of apps
By the time you graduate from the Web Development
Fellowship @ Fullstack, you will have four projects in your software
engineering portfolio — including three web applications and a
Tech Talk. During your job search, these projects will be invaluable,
serving as proof of your coding expertise. Check out some actual examples of
what you will be able to build at Fullstack.
