What is it?

meet our part time instructors

This unique course is designed to help bootcamp graduates prepare for the next stage in their career.

You did it - through hard work and dedication, you became a professional developer sans computer science degree. But you know that there are things people learn in Computer Science programs that would be useful to you. If you could combine your practical web development skills with some of these foundational Computer Science concepts, all while applying what you’re learning to develop full-stack development skills, you’d be almost unstoppable.

Enter HackerYou’s Full-Stack Masterclass. Using a format that’s entirely new to HackerYou based on what we know bootcamp graduates want and need, this 57-hour, nine-week part-time course is designed to fill in your gaps, push you to level up and ultimately narrow the gap between you and the Full-Stack Developer you admire most.

What can I expect?

HackerYou’s Full-Stack Masterclass utilizes a unique format designed to give Bootcamp grads the skills they need to level up in their career.

Features of HackerYou’s Full-Stack Masterclass:

  • It’s selective. Though we encourage anyone to apply, this course just isn’t a fit for everyone. With a maximum size of 25 students, we’re looking for top-of-their-class Bootcamp graduates for this program.
  • Leading-edge full-stack content. We have made a significant investment in building the right content for this course. Bring high expectations - what we teach you is going to have a tangible and significant impact on your career.
  • Led by Simon Bloom. Simon is one of HackerYou’s most knowledgeable, passionate and dynamic instructors.
  • Sunday classes. Rather than twice a week in the evenings like most of our part-time courses, our Full-Stack Masterclass takes place on Sundays from 10 am to 4 pm, giving us time to really dig in and explore complex concepts each class.
  • Computer Science lessons. Led by the CTO of Nascent, our Full-Stack Masterclass will fill in gaps in your knowledge by teaching Computer Science Fundamentals, led by one of Toronto’s most knowledgeable and passionate CTOs, Simeon de Dios.
  • More Project Work-Time. Every other Tuesday evening, there is dedicated project work-time where you’ll be assisted by Nascent’s cross-functional team. You’ll have access to engineers, architects, designers, and more.
  • Nine weeks. Mimicking HackerYou’s bootcamp, our Fullstack Masterclass is nine weeks long. And just like in the bootcamp, you’ll receive a fob for 24/7 access to HackerYou HQ.
  • UX and Design support. It’s critical that you leave the Full-Stack Masterclass with an impressive, polished portfolio piece that shows off your new knowledge and skills, which is why you’ll receive UX and design support throughout the program.

Why Full-Stack Masterclass?

Tons of support

This fall’s Full-Stack Masterclass features lead instructor Simon Bloom. Our lead mentor is Ksenija Gogic, and Computer Science lessons will be led by Simeon de Dios, CTO of Nascent.

The best content

We've worked with professional educators (people with degrees in education!) to design our courses and develop our curriculum. The content and exercises are updated constantly to keep the material fresh and highly relevant.

Be a big fish in a small pond

Our Full-Stack Masterclass is limited to 25 students. This size allows our classes to be hands-on and project-based, but also social and collaborative.

Learn with the best and brightest

We’re looking for top-of-their-class Bootcamp graduates for this program. There’s an interview process and we’ll be accepting only those who are going to be a good fit.

Learning for everyone

This course is hands-on, project-based learning at its finest. Between Simon and Ksenija, we’re going to make sure you’re with us every step of the way. Our goal is to make your successful. No matter what.

Intensive learning

The nine-week format for this course was developed in an attempt to make learning fit your life. By joining us for six hours every Sunday, we’re able to really dig in and explore complex concepts each class.

A modern classroom

We use technology to make learning more efficient. Real industry tools like Slack and Basecamp connect students outside of class. Through our own course notes system, you’ll have access to updates long after the course has ended.
