    Testimonials

    A word of advice to older prospective students like myself. You may be frustrated where you are right now but afraid to make the leap, to quit your job, to spend your savings on a bootcamp, to take three months to learn, to work 80 hours a week. I promise it’s worth it.

    Fullstack Academy is, by all measures, the best investment I have made to date, and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to anybody considering it, especially those with little to no prior programming knowledge. I will note, however, that hard, consistent, and dedicated individual work is a must if you want to make the most out of the Fullstack Academy investment.

    FAQs

    • No matter where you are in your coding journey, you can hone the skills, knowledge, and practical experience of a professional web developer with Fullstack Academy. As a trusted trailblazer in tech education, we’ve helped over 10,000+ students graduate job-ready with the skills, drive, and portfolio to build lasting, thriving careers in tech.

    • The future of web development has moved toward sophisticated, responsive, and dynamic single-page applications running in the browser. Apps like Gmail, Asana, Trello, Facebook, and Google Maps have redefined what users expect from web applications and what developers need to deliver.

      After observing these trends, plus conducting lots of research and conversations with industry experts, we’ve come to the conclusion that full stack JavaScript is the future of web development. Consequently, it is what we primarily immerse our students in at Fullstack Academy.

      What about Ruby on Rails, Python, or other engineering languages? Why are other schools teaching these-or a combination of these- instead?

      Ruby on Rails has been instrumental in consolidating many best practices in back-end web development–making it easier for developers to build large sites in an organized way. Meanwhile, Python has completely revolutionized the way sites record and use data—and we do teach Python foundational skills in our Data Analytics bootcamps.

      Primarily, though, research and use cases show that today’s web runs on highly interactive and responsive experiences that don’t require a page refresh at every step. As a result, single-page applications (SPAs) written in JavaScript using frameworks like React or Vue.js make JavaScript one of the best programming languages to learn.

      JavaScript also offers professional advantages over other languages. Fullstack Academy graduates are well-rounded coders with both a thorough understanding of the full stack and programming concepts in general. We’ve learned through years of tech education that students may more easily understand and master other coding languages once they’ve learned full stack JavaScript. This gives our graduates a more in-demand skill set that separates them from the competition and widens the range of coding job types they’re qualified for.

    • All our coding bootcamps are thorough, comprehensive, immersive, and rigorous. We’re backed by multi-year experience in online tech training to deliver consistent, in-demand coding curricula and digital learning tools in a remote environment.

      Specifically, the Full-Time Software Engineering Bootcamp is designed to support you in leveling up your coding skills, building a robust portfolio, and launching a career in tech. Learn more about online learning with Fullstack Academy.

    • There are a great number of online resources available and we encourage you to try them. Particularly for beginners, tools like Codecademy, Code School, and Team Treehouse can help you learn and practice in-demand coding concepts.

      At Fullstack Academy, learning and practicing coding concepts are only part of the equation. Our Software Engineering Immersive centers on ensuring students have everything they need to build a thriving career—all within an accelerated, guided, supportive, and career-focused environment for learning.

      Additionally, the Software Engineering Immersive centers on active learning and competency-based evaluation metrics, so prospective students can effectively build practical coding skills with real-world application to become well-rounded software engineers.
