Galvanize’s Web Development curriculum is special because it was backwards planned—we started by asking the question, “What skills, habits, and mindsets do developers need to be successful in both getting and keeping jobs in today’s market?” Rooted in the NEAP stack (Node / Express / Angular / PostgreSQL), our program covers the languages, frameworks, and computer science fundamentals you need to land a career in web development.
Server-Side Programming w/ Node | Express and PostgreSQL
Angular | Single-Page Applications | APIs and Microservice Architecture
Data Structures | Capstone Project | Graduation
As part of our curriculum, you’ll work on individual and group projects, which includes a personal capstone project that you’ll present at hiring day. You also may have the opportunity to work with real tech companies to put your new-found skills to work. Here are just a few awesome things our students have built:
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.

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.
As a Galvanize student, your career search will run parallel to your in-class curriculum, as we encourage you to explore the hiring landscape, roles, and industries through alumni and guest speakers; guide you through the job search process; level up your resume and online profiles; and provide opportunities for employers to directly connect with you. Whether via on-campus interviews, our proprietary job portal, our Capstone Showcase, or in-class presentations, you will be ready to engage with employers, and ready to embark on your new career.
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.
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.
