What You’ll Learn and Build in 12 Weeks
- Write HTML and CSS to build working and interactive web applications
- Use a relational and non-relational database to store and retrieve data for an application
- Build and use RESTful APIs; leverage existing APIs to bring real data to life in dynamic websites
Projects: You’ll contribute to projects during two-day sprints, just like professional software engineers. You’ll work with other software engineers in pairs as you improve your technical communication and ability to research and solve unfamiliar problems. You’ll design a database, write server code, create a React application with hooks, and design a REST API.
Building on the robust knowledge learned previously, you’ll continue by exploring how to build even more complex web applications using modern software architectural methods and learning industry practice.
- Work on three Agile teams to complete features based on business requirements and design documents
- Build, deploy, and test scalable applications and architecture with backend performance tuning
- Learn how to effectively use the AI-powered tool GitHub Copilot
- Apply the latest design and technical principles to create microservices
Project: Your senior project models how you’ll work in a real-world software development team. 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. You’ll also push the limits of scaling by making performance optimizations.
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 12 weeks include:

After you’re accepted, you’ll enroll, complete precourse work, determine your financial path, and prepare to transform through tech.
Submit Your Application
Next, submit your application in 10-20 minutes.
Optional Basic Prep Course
Free self-paced Basic Prep course to prepare for the technical assessment.
Two parts: coding challenge and Technical Admissions Assessment (TAA).
How Precourse Work Prepares You for the Intermediate Bootcamp
Prior to your start date, you’ll be required to complete the precourse curriculum, which takes anywhere from 90-120 hours.
“I appreciated the steps that were required to prepare for the course (precourse) so that I could see how I liked coding and the Hack Reactor culture before starting.”

During our coding bootcamps and for six months after graduation, students are given access to our career services. This involves resume and portfolio help, interview prep, and assistance in making connections with companies within and outside our partner network who want to hire our grads. You are welcome to review our recent student outcomes data here.
International students will receive the same support as all other students, but please note our network and support is historically much stronger for those living and targeting jobs in the U.S.
You’re likely at an intermediate level if:
- You Already Have Some Coding Experience
You can write a function or functions that include the use of conditionals, iteration, variables, and data structures. You can apply an understanding of programming language syntax and concepts to solve and debug simple discrete problems.
- You’ve Taken Our Free Basic Prep Course
If you’ve worked through modules 0-3 of our free Basic Prep course, and you feel comfortable with the material, then you’re ready to try the required Technical Admissions Assessment (TAA).
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.
