What You'll Learn
The curriculum for Bootcamp Prep includes lectures, workshops, pair programming, coding challenges, and a culminating project—many of the same elements you’ll find in our immersive programs, which is why Bootcamp Prep is great practice for ultimately enrolling in a coding bootcamp.
All our Bootcamp Prep courses (especially Prep in a Week) are demanding and intense. They are not for true beginners (anyone who has never written any code before), and we recommend them only for those who are actually considering attending a coding bootcamp like Fullstack Academy or the Grace Hopper Program.
Defining and invoking functions
Control flow, truthy/falsy, and loops
Multidimensional arrays and nested loops
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 cofounders 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, cofounded and sold tech start-ups, and are now on your screen, teaching you to code… and sneaking in a dad joke or two.
