Master the Fundamentals While Exploring New Tech

Our Software Engineering Immersive bootcamp goes beyond teaching the most in-demand technologies. Teaching Hack Reactor’s rigorous industry-tested software engineering curriculum, our bootcamp emphasizes soft skills and brings together cutting-edge tech like React, ES6 and blockchain with computer science fundamentals. After completing this program, you’ll be prepared to understand new tech languages, libraries and frameworks.

Think Like a Software Engineer

Professional software engineers have defined goals, but no roadmap of how to get there. Our students don’t just follow directions, they learn how to chart the course.

Build Production-Grade Web Apps

Hack Reactor’s immersive curriculum is results focused. Students learn technologies and fundamentals, then immediately put them into action with carefully designed assignments and a capstone project that you’ll build from the ground up.

Grow Your Network

At Galvanize, you gain more than an education, you develop a network. Our campuses are home to hundreds of startups, entrepreneurs and Fortune 1000 companies, giving you the opportunity to work and learn alongside some of the best and brightest minds in the tech industry.
