    Life changing experience!

    I've decided to switch my career and was coding on my own for quite some time until I realized I've only learnt some HTML in 3 months and the speed and motivation for my learning is not leading me anywhere. My friend recommended looking into coding bootcamps and I started researching. Fullstack Academy had great reviews and job landing rates so I looked no further and applied. They provided great recommendations on how to prepare for their application process, I knew zero JavaScript at t...

    Great environment for productive struggle, growth, learning, with support of great staff

    This one was one of the best experiences I've had in my adult life. Sounds dramatic, but working with full stack helped me to reawaken the potential from inside of myself that I have not felt since college. Enrolling in FSA was the first step of my career change into software engineering. The admissions process was tougher than I expected. New students must have a firm grasp of javascript basics, and must pass a coding assessment and interview process to be placed in a cohort. The pace i...

    I still can't believe I did it!

    Before attending Fullstack Academy, I was a fashion designer working full time during the pandemic and decided to quit my job to become a software engineer. It was such a crazy decision to make, but it's well worth it because I got an offer from a company that I really like after about 3-4 months of job searching. I think 3-4 months was reasonable and as expected. 

    I attended the Grace Hopper Program at FA from Sep 2020 to Dec 2020. The full-time remote immersive program was super...

    Awesome program worth your time and money

    Fullstack Academy (FSA) transformed me from a beginner of almost zero coding experience to a full-time employed full-stack developer within 10 months. To clarify, the 10 months cover pre-bootcamp preparation, self-paced foundation phase, immersive junior and senior phases (the main body of FAS), and 3 months of job hunting after graduation. My program focused on web development; the curriculum covered a up-to-date set of full-stack languages and technologies, including Javascript, React,...

    Amazing school, amazing curriculum

    I graduated from Fullstack's Web Development Fellowship in July 2020 (shout out to WDF-2004!!!). I'm currently set to begin an internship this summer at a company that aligns well with my values and interests and will stretch my knowledge and experience of languages and tools I was exposed to at Fullstack.

    I had the privilege to begin the bootcamp prep in person with those who would be my cohort mates in January 2020 under the instruction of Sarah Zhao (who is so amazing at what s...

    Great program!

    I'm a recent grad from the Fullstack WDF program. It was such an intense learning experience, and the staff there seem to truly care about your success. They handled all questions from my cohort gracefully and patiently, no matter how silly or repetitive the questions were. The career service team provided us with an abundant amount of information, and made themselves available if we ever needed extra office hours to discuss our individual career goals.

    FullTime Immersive Program

    This isn’t something that is easy or will fall in your lap Software Engineering is Hard! That being said there are few programs that I feel could prepare you as well as my program did!! What I love and will rave about to any one looking for a bootcamp is the resources and prep that Full stack offers prior to even taking the immersive bootcamp course. I first took a month long bootcamp prep course where they have industry folks teaching. Also where I met my teacher who referred me for my ...

    Best Decision I've Ever Made

    Attending Fullstack was easily the best decision I've ever made in my life. I found the curriculum and the style of teaching excellent. From the Foundations course through Senior Phase, and beyond, with career support, my expectations were surpassed at every step of the way. It's difficult to look back and think about where I stood before day one of the program, because of how rapidly I was able to grow during this time. I truly went from very little experience to feeling job-ready, as a...

    One of the best bootcamps

    Fullstack Academy definitely taught me so much more than what I would normally learn in your typical computer science course.  I started out as a relative newcomer to the field and they took me from knowing practically nothing to being able to pair program and do all kinds of stuff.  It’s really that type of school.  The instructors were always there to answer our questions and provided us with a massive amount of help whenever we needed it.  Fullstack Academy is a really good choice, espe...

    Software Engineer

    Attending Fullstack Academy was one of the best career decisions I ever made. I applied to Fullstack after attending another coding bootcamp that left me completely unprepared for the job market, not supported, and disillusioned. Fullstack was the boost I needed to become a full-time professional software engineer. The instructors are amazingly talented and really care about your success, the curriculum is challenging, but relevant to the skills needed for the tech job market, and their ...

    Best decision of my life!

    I applied to Fullstack Academy though the NYC Tech Talent Pipeline for a chance at a fellowship opportunity. With a degree in computer science and the terrible market due to the corona virus, I knew it was going to take a lot more to stand out. That and in today's age, a CS degree holds little weight compared to practical skill in today's climate. Anyway, I applied, went through a bootcamp to learn the fundamentals of JavaScript. I had to take a midterm and a final to get a shot at the a...

    Fast way to software

    Overall I am very pleased with my experience at the Grace Hopper Program. I considered the self teaching route, but I am an impatient person and I wanted to do whatever was going to help me transition into tech fastest. I have a background in aerospace engineering and have experience coding from college, but not in web development. I feel that if I had self taught then the process probably would have taken around 2x as long, and I might not have learned the best technologies or have gott...
