Join us for an upcoming HackerYou Industry Day event!

Time flies when you’re having fun! When our full-time immersive bootcamp students “graduate” from HackerYou, we like to invite some of our students’ favourite companies to come to meet them and see what they can do.

At our Industry Day event, our bootcamp graduates will each be set up around HackerYou, ready to show you the different projects they’ve created over the past nine weeks. You’ll sit with each graduate for two minutes to meet them, see their work, and determine if they might be a fit for your company or opportunity, after the quick interview round you’ll have some time to mingle and chat with the students in a more causal setting and take a bit more time with anyone that you wanted to chat with further. We’re sure you’ll be impressed – these are the best-trained front-end developers in the country. Learn more about them here.

Our Graduates’ Skills:

  • HTML5, CSS3 and responsive design
  • Precompiled syntaxes such as Jade and Sass
  • JavaScript fundamentals, jQuery and using APIs
  • Workflow automation and JavaScript tooling with Gulp
  • WordPress theme development (including converting HTML & CSS sites to WordPress themes, using custom post types and custom fields, etc.)
  • Version control and open-sourcing code using Git and Github
  • Paired programming & working in teams
  • Sublime Text
  • Best practices for modern web development
  • Website accessibility requirements
  • Plus whatever skills they had coming in to the program! All of them had former careers in everything from design to marketing to writing to system programming, and everything in between. Many have leadership experience, and are just looking for their next opportunity to deliver major value to an organization.
