Web Development from the Ground Up

Galvanize Full Stack is a 24-week program that teaches you how to make an impact as a contributing member of a development team. The program culminates in hiring day, where students meet potential employers, present projects, and show off everything they’ve learned.

Placement

After graduating from the Full Stack Program, many of our alumni pursue roles as full-stack software developers, while others pursue roles in front-end development, quality assurance engineering, product management, and sales engineering. Throughout the Galvanize program, students have the opportunity to explore these career paths and engage with professionals working in the field, as well as potential employers.

Where our Graduates Work

After leaving Galvanize, our students go on to work at some of the most exciting and innovative tech companies all across the country. Here are just a few of them:

PuppyLove
Rory Grant & Dana Mulder

PuppyLove is an app built to match dogs around the
city based on location and personality traits. This social network that allows users to connect based on the compatibility of their pets was built using test-driven development and pair programming.

Rereddit
Cameron Irmas & Michael Smykowski 

Rereddit is a mobile-centric application that allows you to more elegantly browse Reddit, to save your favorite posts to boards, and to follow and interact with your friends. The app is built with Meteor, a full-stack JavaScript framework that excels in the development of real-time applications.

Comeback

Comeback is a data visualization that describes the history of the gray wolf. The interface features a map visualizing populations over time and interactive infographics. Built using D3.js, TopoJSON, JavaScript, Sass, Ruby, jQuery and object-oriented data handling and parsing.

Cyvasse
Alex McRitchie

Cyvasse is a board game built in JavaScript/jQuery and Rails, based on a fictitious game from the book series A Song of Ice and Fire. In the series there are only hints to how the game is played, so the rules are a combination of the specifics found in the books combined with the views on game design and user feedback.

Galvanize full stack is the only external immersive program that consistently produces the industry-ready engineers that can meet Pivotal's standards

Campus Life

At our campuses, diversity and collaboration are the norm: programmers, data scientists, and community members learn from each other and work together. With expert instructors, startups, and industry partners working side by side, there’s always someone to help you get unstuck or offer you new challenges to put your skills to the test.

Career Preparation

The curriculum is designed around solving practical, real-world problems with the latest tools. Instructors will work with you to conduct mock interviews, help you put together a top-notch resume, and ensure you put your best foot forward when applying for job opportunities as graduation approaches. Present your project and interview with 30+ companies at our Hiring Day.

Admissions

During the application process, you’ll receive a take-home exercise and have two interviews with Galvanize faculty – one to assess your goals for the program, and another to evaluate your programming ability. Programming experience isn’t required, but we are looking for advanced beginners who’ve taught themselves the basics.

Scholarships and Financial Aid

We offer partial scholarships based on merit, demonstrated financial need, and increasing participation in technology among underrepresented groups such as women, veterans, minorities, and people who identify as LGBT. We also partner with Skills Fund and Climb Credit for students who need help financing their tuition.
