How it Works

Fullstack Academy's online coding bootcamp is divided into 3 phases.

Weeks

The live online, instructor-led Full-Time Foundations course is the first phase of the Beginner Web Development Immersive. For 6 weeks, you’ll study full-time (Monday-Friday) with other beginner coders to prepare for the core curriculum of our Web Development Immersive.

The self-paced, online Foundations course is the first phase of the Software Engineering Immersive for intermediate students to prepare for the core curriculum. You’ll learn through videos, coding sessions, and digital exercises for 15-30 hours per week over 4 weeks—with access to a discussion forum and mentor guidance throughout.

Foundations Web Development Curriculum

  • HTML and CSS

  • Introduction to JavaScript programming

  • Advanced JavaScript including closure, prototypical inheritance, and recursion

  • Web development environment and industry-standard tools

Foundations Features

  • Student-centered, inquiry-based learning in teams

  • Instructor-facilitated, live online classroom format

  • Immersive digital learning tools

  • Hands-on, collaborative, and team-building projects

HASE 2

Throughout this rigorous second phase, you’ll be studying to master technical skills and professional coding communication.

Junior Phase Web Development Curriculum

  • 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.

  • 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 industry standard of back-end web engineering. We’ll teach you to use APIs (Application Programming Interfaces) to connect to vast amounts of data to power your web applications.

  • Databases. You will then master data organization and storage by working with popular SQL relational databases like Postgres, and learn how to integrate them into your applications.

Junior Phase Features

  • Pair Programming. Working with a fellow student, you’ll each use your newfound knowledge to write and optimize front-end and back-end code. This helps you build real-world experience and prepare for industry standard, technical coding interviews.

  • Interview Prep. You’ll learn the basics of standard interviewing Q&A and start to integrate these best practices into pair programming communications.

At this point, you’ll have a solid understanding of the technologies taught in the immersive program. The Senior phase is your time to put that knowledge to use by building fully functional web applications from scratch. You will continue deepening your knowledge by solving real-world problems and applying best practices to your work.

Senior Phase Web Development Curriculum

  • Guided team project. You’ll join a group of 3-4 students to collectively create a functional e-commerce site with all the components of a web application–including the front-end, back-end, and database.

  • Personal project. After formulating your own idea for a web or mobile application, you’ll start to build it from scratch. You will take design considerations into account, like user experience and information architecture in addition to full stack development. You will learn new technologies or libraries in order to complete this project, which will help you learn how to learn advanced coding concepts throughout your career.

  • Capstone project. You will work with a team of students to come up with an ambitious idea for an app, and build it out over 2 weeks. This will be the most impressive project in your portfolio and will demonstrate your full understanding of software development and industry best practices.

Senior Phase Features

  • Career Coaching. Fullstack Academy’s Career Coaches are your one-stop professional development resource. They’ll work with you on core aspects of the job search–from technical interview preparation to resume optimization–throughout the Senior phase of your coding journey and beyond.

Testimonials

The curriculum is constantly updated and delivered by first-rate, passionate educators. The positivity and encouragement offered by the entire faculty was awesome, and in every step of the process, it was clear that my learning experience was the foremost of their concerns. The experience as a whole is one that has changed the course of my life, and I would wholeheartedly encourage anyone considering to apply to Fullstack Academy.

I was a little nervous about joining the first Remote Immersive cohort (it’s always scary being the first!), but having come out on the other side, I can most definitely say it is and will always be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I made lifelong friends and mentors, learned an incredible amount, and definitely grew as a developer, a teammate, and a person.

  • Fullstack JavaScript Is the Future

    We love Ruby on Rails and Python/Django (we built our successful startups using those two stacks). However, the web industry waits for no developer or technology. 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. Listening to these industry trends, and after lots of research and conversations with our CTO colleagues at top startups from Y Combinator, we’ve come to the conclusion that fullstack JavaScript is the future of web development. Consequently, it is what we primarily immerse our students in at Fullstack Academy.

    Full-stack JavaScript Is the Best Way to Learn Web Development

    Not only is fullstack JS where “the puck is moving,” but it’s also the best way to learn how to code. Modern web development requires keeping many different parts of the stack in your mind at the same time. As a student, this is challenging enough. Now imagine that on top of this, each part of the stack requires you to understand and write in a completely different programming language (e.g., Ruby, SQL, and JavaScript). The context switch required by switching back and forth between languages significantly slows down the learning process. Fullstack JavaScript eliminates this problem, as every part of the stack uses one language: JavaScript.

    As evidence for how quickly one can be productive when learning on a single-language stack, two Fullstack Academy teams won the Grand Prize at two different hackathons in New York City in February 2014. Both winning teams were using fullstack JavaScript and were only 4 weeks into their semester at Fullstack. They each won $5,000 and $1,000, respectively, in cash prizes while competing with other serious teams made up of experienced developers. In December, Fullstack students swept the awards at The New York Times Hackathon, including the Best In Show and category-specific awards. More recently, students have won awards at NYC’s Fintech hackathon and the 2015 Video Hack Day.

    What about Ruby on Rails? Why are other schools teaching Rails?

    When we first discovered Rails, in 2005, developers were coming from an age where PHP back-end sites were getting increasingly complex and were becoming difficult to manage and scale. Rails excelled in this world, where the goal was still to develop HTML/CSS-centric web interfaces with heavy back-ends. Rails consolidated many best practices in back-end web development and made it easier for developers to build large sites in an organized way.

    A lot has changed since 2005, however. Cutting-edge companies today want to give users highly interactive and responsive experiences that don’t require a page refresh at every step. As a result, the web of today is dominated by “single page” applications or SPAs written in JavaScript using frameworks like React or Ember.js, making JavaScript one of the best programming languages to learn. Increasingly, the role of Rails has shifted to serve as an API layer to the back-end of web applications. You can read more about why a lot of schools teach Rails here.

    On top of these reasons, JavaScript offers several educational advantages over other languages. And as the majority of other coding schools teach Ruby on Rails, Fullstack graduates have a more in-demand skill set that separates them from the competition. Learn more about the educational and job-seeking advantages offered by a JavaScript curriculum here: Is the programming language taught at a coding bootcamp important?
