HackerYou’s Lifelong Skills Guarantee: Be Confident Your Code is Always at its Best

At HackerYou, our mission isn’t just to help you learn to code, but to give you those skills for life.

Since HackerYou was founded in 2012, thousands of students have graduated from our courses with the ability to build complex websites and applications from scratch. Armed with best-in-class coding skills and knowledge of best practices, our alumni have integrated their new skills into their chosen professions, landed promotions, started businesses and side hustles, and hundreds and hundreds have switched careers completely to become web developers. Many of our alumni put their coding knowledge to use every day and their skills get even better with time.

But we know that not all of our students - especially those who aren’t interested in complete career changes - are lucky enough to be able to use their coding skills every day. Not being able to practice their code on a regular basis results in skills erosion - it’s easy for their coding skills and knowledge to drift away over time. Coding isn’t like riding a bike - if you don’t use your skills, you lose ‘em.

On top of that, bicycles have worked basically the same since their invention, but the world of web development changes all the time. New best practices are established on a regular basis and industry standards seem to evolve just as quickly as you master the old ones. The way that we built websites five years ago isn’t how we build them today. In fact, the way we built them a year ago isn’t how we build them today! While this is one of the things that makes web development interesting and exciting, it also means that it’s easy for your coding skills to fall behind if you’re not using them regularly.

For this reason, we’re excited to introduce our brand-new Lifelong Skills Guarantee. If you ever feel like your coding skills need brushing up or are out-of-date, you can refresh them by retaking HackerYou courses you have already taken for just $500 plus tax.

Having lifetime access to course content is something that HackerYou has always offered. No matter when a student takes a course, they will always have access to the course notes. Even better, those course notes are updated with best practices and industry standards on an ongoing basis. We put this in place to ensure that our students could always feel secure in their decision to learn to code at HackerYou.

But starting today, we’re taking that lifetime access a step further. With our Lifelong Skills Guarantee, our alumni have lifetime access to in-person HackerYou courses too - it’s just $500 to return, anytime you want, as many times as you want, to retake the courses you have already taken. No matter where you are in your coding journey, we want our students to have best-in-class coding skills, and our new Guarantee is just one of the ways that we can show our commitment to that. So what do you need to know?

The Guarantee

Our Lifetime Skills Guarantee enables alumni to retake courses they have already taken at HackerYou for just $500 plus tax.

If you’d like to apply for the Lifetime Skills Guarantee, you can fill out the form here. Once you apply, you will be contacted by a member of our Admissions Team, and added to the next course that works for your schedule and has seats available. While we give priority to students taking a course for the first time, we’ll work hard to ensure we can find a class that works for you as quickly as we can.

The Fine Print

An exciting part of this initiative is that you can take the class in any format. This means that no matter when or how you took your courses the first time, you have the option of taking them on weeknights, weekends, or even in our new Accelerated format. So even though your first courses might have taken 12 weeks, you could choose to relearn that content in just two weeks on a full-time basis.

All of our ongoing Continuing-Education courses are eligible for this Guarantee. This includes Web Development, JavaScript, and our Full-Stack Masterclass. Our Web Development Immersive is not included in this Guarantee since it is a full-time program. UX Design is also not included, since we will be running the last sesson of this class in April.

It’s important to note that we also require an attendance commitment from you as part of the Lifelong Skills Guarantee. To participate, it’s required that you attend every class in the courses you are enrolled in. If you miss more than two classes, you will be de-registered, and asked to return to a different session that works better for your schedule. While we understand that life is busy, this requirement is in place to ensure that students taking the courses for the first time aren’t disrupted, so that they have the same great experience you did when taking the courses for the first time.


At HackerYou, our goal has always been to make sure our students have the best learning experience possible. We want you to leave HackerYou confident with your skills, happy with your experience, and excited about your future. Our commitment to this has always been clear, but today we’re taking it one step further with our Lifelong Skills Guarantee. It is our promise to you that no matter who you are or when you choose to learn with us, we’re committed to you and the skills you came here for. If our new Guarantee is something you’d like to take advantage of, apply now to be one of the first people to refresh your skills at HackerYou.
