Bootcamp Prep in a Month is for any student who's interested in applying to any of Fullstack Academy's prestigious immersive programs -- such as the Software Engineering Immersive -- and desires to acquire the programming skills needed to pass the coding assessment and technical interview.

This is a 3.5 week part-time class running Monday through Thursday nights. Any classes that fall on holidays or are canceled due to inclement weather will be rescheduled.

Required pre-work

When you sign up, you’ll receive instant access to the Bootcamp Prep prework module, which must be completed before the first day of class.

In the pre-work module, you'll watch 5 lecture videos — taught by Fullstack Academy founders David and Nimit — then do some coding challenges to make sure you understand the concepts. Once you have tried the problems, you watch solution videos to see a detailed walk-through of the answer to each problem.

The pre-work takes about 10 hours to complete and, once you have successfully completed it, you'll know you are prepared to do well in Bootcamp Prep!
