Core Curriculum: Junior Phase
Throughout this rigorous second phase, you’ll be studying full-time 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.
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.
Core Curriculum: Senior Phase
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 to study full-time during this phase–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–building 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.

Build a Portfolio of Apps
By the time you graduate from the Beginner Web Development Bootcamp, you’ll have 3 projects in your software engineering portfolio: a group e-commerce website, a personal hackathon project, and your final team capstone project. All your code will be housed on Github and built out with real-world libraries and methodologies–demonstrating your technical, practical, and creative skills to future employers.
Check out some of our past coding student capstone projects.
Beginner Web Development Bootcamp Daily Schedule
You’ll get a full live online classroom experience with your classmates and instructors through a mix of live instruction, coding exercises, and team projects. No two days are the same, but here’s an example of what a typical day looks like in the Junior Phase of our online coding bootcamps:
Your morning starts with a self-led review of notes and other learning materials to prepare for class.
You’ll receive live instruction from a Fullstack Academy instructor, followed by a real-time demonstration of each new concept.
The class then breaks into groups or pairs for a collaborative coding session facilitated by our highly interactive video conferencing platform. Pair programming is an essential skill for any developer and also aids in the learning process by cultivating skills like reading documentation and thinking creatively to solve programming challenges.
You will take a 90-minute break to recharge and refuel. Many of our students take advantage of this time to get some exercise as well, which helps to get energized for the rest of the day.
The afternoon consists of additional instruction or a continuation of pair exercises. Your instructor or teaching mentors are then available to review your code and answer any questions you may have via our learning management system.
Throughout bootcamp, you’ll program alongside a partner. Together, you’ll assume defined roles to solve programming challenges and double-check each other’s work.
Some things are better when they are shared
Employers love to see ample pair programming experience on your resume because it demonstrates practical knowledge as well as creative problem-solving skills. Plus, pair programming helps you get a feel for real-world remote work environments while building lasting, meaningful professional relationships.
Prepare for a Career in Coding
Upon graduation and for a full year beyond, you’ll opt into Career Success to receive the guidance and tools you’ll need to power your job search and land the ideal web developer role for you.
Portfolio of Apps
The projects and prototypes you build throughout bootcamp come together to form a comprehensive web developer portfolio.
We’ll help you write and optimize a profile to jumpstart the networking process and demo your web applications for employer visibility.
Tech employers across the board want to see a strong Github profile—and that is exactly what you will have by the end of the program.
You’ll work with our Career Success Team to craft an elegant resume that shows off your skills as a full stack web developer.
Our career coaches will also help you prepare for standard and technical interviews with group sessions, events, presentations, and more!
Fullstack Academy Graduates Get Hired by Industry Leaders:
With an in-depth curriculum spanning computer science fundamentals to front-end and back-end web development, the beginner coding bootcamp is best for motivated students who are passionate about tech.
The curriculum starts at the beginner level, but is still designed to engage and challenge students throughout their coding journey in standard, accelerated Fullstack Academy fashion. That’s why we’ve developed a thoughtful, comprehensive application process to ensure prospective students are a good fit for the program–and vice-versa!
Here's what we look for in prospective students.
Passion for Coding
You’ve demonstrated your passion and are determined to become a developer.
We look for students who are considerate, collaborative, and driven.
No matter where your interests take you, you’re always continuing to learn and grow along the way.
Within 4 weeks, I received 2 job offers at companies I was really excited about. During my interviews, both companies were pleasantly surprised by how knowledgable and capable a bootcamp grad could be. Truly, I owe it all to Fullstack Academy's education and preparation.
Full-Stack Developer, PreparedHealth
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.
Front-End Engineer, Amazon
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 5,500 students graduate job-ready with the skills, drive, and portfolio to build lasting, thriving careers in tech.
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 bootcamps are built around ensuring students have everything they need to build a thriving career–all within an accelerated, supportive, and career-focused environment for learning.
We love Ruby on Rails and Python/Django. 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.
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.
Fullstack Academy is not currently able to accept tuition assistance payments from the new GI Bill (though we’re working hard on changing this!). However, veterans do automatically qualify for our $1,000 scholarship, and additional tuition assistance may be acquired through VET TEC or VRRAP.
Contact your local VA office for details, then visit our friends at Operation Code to learn more about veteran tech training efforts and how you can support the cause.
We recommend applying at least two weeks prior to your desired cohort start date - the earlier the better. This will allow you time to take the no-risk admissions assessment, receive your admissions decision, and complete your enrollment materials.
Our organization is based in one of the greatest cities on earth - New York City! However, all bootcamps offered by Fullstack Academy and the Grace Hopper Program are held in a live online format.
As part of our commitment to delivering a high-quality student experience as well as considerations resulting from Covid-19, we aim to meet the moment with a bootcamp format that’s more practical, versatile, and accessible to students nationwide.
