Learn HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Python, and Build your Project Portfolio

This program takes you from beginner to job-ready in 19 weeks using a modern, module-based curriculum focused on putting new skills and knowledge into practice right away.

Download the Syllabus

Dive into the world of a full-stack software engineer. These subjects represent the core knowledge and skills that are used in nearly every software engineering job.

  • Turn software requirements into a running application with Python and Django
  • Write HTML and CSS to build working and interactive web applications
  • Use a relational database to store and retrieve data for an application
  • Use Visual Studio Code (VSCode), Bash or PowerShell, and Git to create high-quality code and projects

Project: Your first project uses everything you’ve learned in the previous four weeks to build a meaningful full-stack web application. You’ll design the database, write the server code to create the responses to drive the application experience, and author the client code to render an attractive, intuitive, and responsive web application interface.

Building on the robust knowledge learned in the first module, you’ll continue by exploring how to build even more complex web applications using modern software architectural methods.

  • Use Domain Driven Design to model and design large software applications
  • Build scalable and fault-tolerant applications using messaging middleware
  • Apply the latest design and technical principles to create microservices
  • Create stand-alone web application front-ends using JavaScript and React

Project: Your second project models how you’ll work in a real-world software development team, utilizing the power of independent development in a collaborative environment. You and your team will use Agile software development practices to individually build microservices that seamlessly work together to create a robust and scalable web application.

Combine everything from the first 12 weeks with new skills to manage large amounts of data. Then learn development, security, and operations (DevSecOps) to harness the power of the cloud.

  • Build near-real-time applications that automatically update all User Interfaces (UIs) with WebSockets and FastAPI
  • Learn how to effectively use the AI-powered tool GitHub Copilot
  • Write algorithms that work with different shapes of data
  • Use different types of persistent data stores for different kinds of data with MongoDB
  • Plan, create, and monitor a continuous integration and delivery pipeline with GitLab Pipelines

Project: You’ve spent weeks learning how to build robust, scalable, and interesting web-based applications. Now you get to show it all off by combining cloud-native services with your own custom code. Again working as part of an Agile software development effort, you’ll design and build a durable and responsive web application using a cloud platform.

At this stage, you’ll begin your job search, leaning on the many things you’ve learned from our Career Services team during your time in the bootcamp. We’ll be right by your side, helping you find, land, and negotiate terms for the job of your dreams.

Career services during your 19 weeks include:

  • 1:1 coaching sessions
  • Mock interviews
  • Portfolio and resume building
  • Professional development workshops
  • Networking exercises
  • Access to a broad alumni network

The recent leap in artificial intelligence (AI) tools will enhance the productivity of the software engineer like nothing before it. Perhaps the greatest recipients of this technology will be our graduates, and those just starting out or entering the software engineering field.

That is why we’re proud to teach the AI-powered tool GitHub Copilot in our instructor-taught curriculum in all our coding bootcamps. Read more about our approach to teaching GitHub Copilot, and our firm belief that new coders and new software engineers should learn foundational skills before being introduced to these types of productivity-enhancing tools. For more on AI and its impact on software engineering, read a panel discussion with Galvanize experts.

Yes. We teach students how to use the AI-powered tool GitHub Copilot in all our coding bootcamps. We teach students how to integrate Copilot into their software development workflow during the later modules of all of our coding bootcamps, after proficiency in programming has been obtained. Students will use this tool to build a portfolio project (a non-trivial application) to demonstrate their ability to evaluate and blend AI-generated code with their own.

Our instructional teams, which are composed of industry veterans, have managed the responsible use of productivity-enhancement tools throughout their careers and are well-equipped to teach this newest tool.
