Bootcamp Prep in a Week at Fullstack Academy

New York, NY - Jun 23 10:00 am to Jul 1, 2018 5:00 pm

Price: more than $250


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

This one-week, intensive course starts with two full days of weekend learning, continues Monday through Thursday evenings, and concludes with another two full days of weekend learning. It's our entire Bootcamp Prep curriculum condensed into a single week.

What is the Admissions Process like for Bootcamp Prep?

There is a light admissions process for Bootcamp Prep. Although it's designed for beginners, the curriculum starts with the assumption that students have basic familiarity with JavaScript syntax, which allows the class to move at a good pace and yield quality outcomes for students. There are about 10 hours of required pre-work to work through before the class starts, to make sure you're prepared to succeed on Day 1. Once you've finished the pre-work, we ask you to take the JavaScript Review to confirm your newly acquired skills!

Here's what the admissions process looks like:

1) When you sign up for Bootcamp Prep, you'll answer several short, admissions-related questions.

2) You'll be given immediate access to the Bootcamp Prep Pre-Work, which consists of about 10 hours of material meant to prepare you for the first day of class.

3) Once you've finished the pre-work, you're invited to take a short coding assessment. The assessment has “easy” level questions on topics like Strings, Arrays, and Loops.

4) After you take the assessment, we'll get back to you in a few days to let you know the outcome.

5) If you pass the test and are accepted, your spot in Bootcamp Prep will be confirmed and you’ll be ready to start class on Day 1 of your selected cohort.

6) If you don't pass the test, you will have the option to defer to the next Bootcamp Prep cohort (free of charge), so you have a chance to study some more and take the test again, or to receive a full refund of your course fee.

What is the curriculum?

As a Bootcamp Prep in a Week student, you’ll be taught by professional software engineers with years of experience. You’ll attend class for a full weekend, then for 4 nights a week, and finish up with another full weekend of work. Each class begins with instruction, then segues into practical workshops to solidify your understanding of the day's concepts. Throughout the course, you'll develop core programming skills and use them to solve various coding challenges, and as the course draws to a close, you'll focus on a project that pulls together everything you've learned and demonstrates the practical application of JavaScript.The week's curriculum includes the following fundamentals of JavaScript programming:

  • Nested loops
  • Nested conditional statements
  • Test specs (Jasmine)
  • Objects
  • API’s
  • JSON
  • How the web works
  • The call stack
  • Recursion
  • Functions
  • Scope
  • How to master coding challenges

What is the tuition?

Tuition for this course is $750. We accept all major credit cards and checks. Should you be accepted to one of Fullstack Academy's Immersive programs after taking Bootcamp Prep, whatever you've paid for Bootcamp Prep will be applied towards your immersive tuition, essentially rendering Bootcamp Prep free.

Does completing Bootcamp Prep guarantee me a spot in an immersive program at Fullstack Academy?

This course does prepare you for the Fullstack admissions process, but completing the course does not guarantee acceptance to any of our immersive programs. You will still need to complete the same coding assessment and interview process as all other Fullstack applicants.

What do I need for class?

You need to have a functioning computer for each class. Macs are preferred, however, Windows machines are acceptable.
