Program Structure

Students learn best by doing. As an NYC Web Development Fellowship student, you will first complete Fullstack's Bootcamp Prep course, before diving into the Immersive Program. The 17-week immersive curriculum is a unique educational program that combines lectures, workshops, projects, and more to help you gain a deep, practical understanding of our curriculum. During the process, you will build an impressive portfolio that demonstrates your skills as a developer.

  • Fullstack's Bootcamp Prep is a part-time class that meets 4 nights each week for 4 weeks. This course will prepare students for the admissions checkpoint to enter the software engineering immersive section of the program. You'll learn more than just the fundamentals of programming, you'll learn how to solve real-world coding problems using the JavaScript language.

    Key points of the Bootcamp Prep curriculum will include:

    • Defining and invoking functions
    • Loops and truthy/falsey statements
    • Objects and multidimensional arrays
    • Nested loops
    • Recursion
    • Approaching coding challenges and mock interviews

  • Completed directly following Bootcamp Prep, Foundations is a full-time, in-person beginning to our course that you will take for 4 weeks. You will work through the Foundations material on your own pace on-campus, to get ready for the immersive.

    In Foundations, you will develop a solid base of programming knowledge, allowing you to start the immersive portion of the course at an intermediate level, and at a fast pace.

    After completing Foundations, you will have a firm grasp on the more advanced areas of JavaScript — including closure, scoping, prototypal inheritance and recursion. You will also be completely comfortable working in the web development environment, will be well versed in HTML & CSS, and will have built your first Node.js application.

  • This is one of the most intense phases of the program, when you will be working all day up to six days a week. You will study:

    • 1

      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.

    • 2

      Back-end development

      You will take your JavaScript skills to the back-end, with Node.js and the amazing ecosystem of libraries that have made JavaScript the leader in next-generation back-end web engineering. You will master the use of APIs to connect to vast amounts of user data.

    • 3


      You will master data persistence by building your own SQL database engine, learning about popular SQL databases like Postgres, and how to integrate these into your applications.

  • At this point, you will have a solid understanding of the core technologies taught in the immersive program. It is now time to put that knowledge to use by building fully functional web applications from scratch. You will continue to work full-time during this phase, while you deepen your knowledge by solving real-world problems and learning best practices.

    • 1

      Guided team project

      You will work in a group of 3-4 students to build an e-commerce site, and will build all the components of a web application from the ground up — including the front-end, back-end and database.

    • 2

      Personal project

      You will come up with an idea for a web or mobile application, and build it from scratch. You will take design considerations into account, like user experience and information architecture. You will learn new technologies or libraries in order to complete this project, which will help you "learn how to learn" new areas in software development.

    • 3

      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 the final weeks of the immersive program. This will be the most impressive project in your portfolio, and will demonstrate your full understanding of software development and industry best-practices.

  • Following the core curriculum, Fullstack will assist NYC fellows in finding two-month paid apprenticeships at NYC tech companies. With the skills gained during the core curriculum, graduates will be able to make impactful contributions to a professional engineering team.

    This apprenticeship will serve as valuable real-world work experience and provide fellows a comfortable and measured transition into their first software engineering role after graduation.

  • Following the internship portion of the fellowship, graduates will receive guidance and mentorship from Fullstack Academy’s career success team. Not only will alumni of the fellowship program have the benefit of Fullstack’s vast alumni network, they will also conduct regular check-ins, mock interview practice, periodic whiteboard-interview prep, and job search strategy sessions with our dedicated career professionals.

    Fullstack’s Career Success modules have proven successful as graduates of the Immersive Program now work at some of the largest tech firms in the world, as well as hundreds of innovative and growing companies across NYC.
