What is it?

meet our part time instructors

Intro and Advanced Web Development are our two most popular part-time courses. When you come to HackerYou, we commit to teaching you real, tangible web development skills. We offer two options for our web development classes: twice a week in the evenings, or once a week on Saturdays. Regardless of which option you choose, both Intro and Advanced web development run for six weeks each. To build skills you have to put in the time, and we make it easy and fun!

All of our part-time courses are led by talented instructors who can’t wait to teach you the latest web development skills. With hundreds of in-class exercises, and intensive projects, you’ll leave HackerYou with real skills and a portfolio you’ll want to show off. While you’re here, we offer tons of support to help you meet your goals, such as one-on-one time with your instructor team and access to our ever-growing alumni community. There’s always someone available if you need extra help.

What can I expect?

Our Intro and Advanced Web Development courses give you the skills you need to produce rich, responsive websites using HTML5 and CSS3.

Our part-time web development courses are perfect for tech-savvy beginners. Whether you’ve completed a Ladies Learning Code workshop, played around online, or are a coding novice looking to develop the skills to build a website from scratch, our part-time web development courses are for you.

At HackerYou, we don’t create generalists. Our courses are meant to help you learn how to actually code. You’ll leave our part-time courses with tangible skills that you can put into practice in the real world. We’re thoughtful about what we include in our curriculum, and we ensure that there's time to cover our chosen topics thoroughly.

Our part-time courses are a blend of lessons and hands-on exercises. After each lesson, you’ll have the opportunity to test and strengthen your learning through an exercise or challenge. In Intro to Web Development, you’ll complete over 100 exercises, and you’ll build a single-page site from scratch using the skills you’ve learned. In Advanced Web Development, you’ll complete over 150 exercises, and you’ll complete two projects to test your learning. If you take both classes, you’ll have built three complete websites from scratch.

Why part-time web development?

Tons of support

For all of HackerYou’s part-time courses, there are three instructors in every class. Our 10:1 ratio of students to instructors ensures that you can get the help you need at the exact moment you need it.

The best content

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

Be a big fish in a small pond

Each HackerYou part-time course has about 30 students. This allows our classes to be hands-on and project-based, but also social and collaborative.

Learn with the best and brightest

HackerYou's part-time courses are designed for tech-savvy beginners. We interview everyone before they're accepted to ensure they're going to be a good fit.

Learning for everyone

Our part-time curriculum was designed for everyone. Whether you like to learn with drawings and charts; by reading; or by listening and reviewing later – each lesson is accompanied by exercises to give you many opportunities to practice what you’re learning.

Intensive learning

Our part-time web development courses run many times a year, either twice a week in the evening, or once a week on Saturdays. We want HackerYou to fit into your life! Whichever option you choose, you’ll have six hours of class a week.

A modern classroom

We use technology to make learning more efficient. Real industry tools like Slack and Basecamp connect students outside of class. We’ve even built our own course notes system, which gives students access to updates long after their courses have ended.

What will I build?

Learn to build websites completely from scratch.

At HackerYou, our emphasis is ensuring you can create dynamic projects that show off your skills. In both Intro and Advanced Web Development, you’ll build websites from scratch. Check out some examples below:

Bootcamp Week1

Intro: Project One

One Page Website

For this project, you will build a single-page site for a fictional client of your choice, or for yourself, utilizing the skills you’ve learned in the course. You’lll be required to use semantic HTML elements to describe your content, and CSS to style IMG elements and backgrounds.

Bootcamp Week1

Advanced: Project One

Design to HTML

For this project, you will build a site from a provided design file. One of the best ways to improve your coding skills is to take an existing design and replicate it in HTML and CSS. This lets you focus solely on your code to improve your technical skills!

Bootcamp Week1

Advanced: Project Two

Fully Responsive Website

Make a personal website, portfolio, or build a client project. Your site must be responsive, and should integrate all the tools and tricks you’ve learned in this class. This is your time to shine. If you nail this project, you could comfortably take on web projects upon completion.
