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 Web Development is the only external immersive program that consistently produces the industry-ready engineers that can meet Pivotal's standards

Campus Life

Galvanize campuses are designed from the ground up to be conducive to learning to code. From the classrooms and the lab space to the carefully vetted companies renting workspaces, Galvanize is the learning community for technology.

The instructors at Galvanize are passionate about both teaching and writing code. They come from diverse technological backgrounds having worked in dozens of different languages and technologies. They’ve come together because they want to take on a new challenge: the craft of teaching.

Career Preparation

You will work with a Career Services Manager in the city in which you attended the program. They will help you identify your strengths and career interests, help you refine your career goals, and identify opportunities for you to connect with hiring partners. Working in tandem with each of our Career Services Managers is a Partnerships Relations Manager, dedicated to identifying, cultivating, and developing regional and national employer relationships for you and all of our Galvanize students.

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.
