If you’re new to coding, don’t be intimidated by our HTML & CSS pre-requisite. Most people who come to HackerYou started as beginners and gained the requisite skills through our part-time or Accelerated courses. Book a tour, and we’ll help you pick the right path!

What We Look For

  • Motivation
  • Coding Experience
  • Leadership Potential
  • Resilience and Adaptability
  • Written and Verbal Communication Skills

From application to graduation, your experience will look something like this…

Application & Admissions

We consider your potential to thrive as a member of the HackerYou community just as much as your technical abilities. To begin the application process, you will complete a video interview and an HTML & CSS-focused tech challenge. Those who are successful will be invited to interview with a member of HackerYou’s team, either in-person or over video. We make offers of early acceptance on a rolling basis, so the sooner you apply, the better your chances! Our Bootcamp admissions process is structured to ensure that everyone accepted has what it takes to be successful not only as a Web Developer, but as a member of a development team and the tech community at large.

Inside the Classroom

During your learning journey with us, you’ll follow a proven curriculum that is constantly updated featuring industry best practices. From HTML to React, our instructors take care to create lessons that are hands-on, exercise heavy and perfectly paced. Group work, portfolio projects, weekly presentations, and afterhours mentor sessions will deepen your knowledge of each topic. And don’t forget about Beyond Bootcamp, the six-week part-time course that starts two weeks after your Bootcamp graduation, designed to help you level up while you job hunt.

Your Community

One of the best things about enrolling at HackerYou is joining our incredible community of alumni. Feeling stuck on certain concepts, or just need some support? We’ve got you covered. Just reach out on one of our dedicated Slack channels. You will also be paired with a “Bootcamp Buddy”: a past graduate who will be available as a support system throughout your experience. We also run after-hours mentoring sessions during which alumni volunteer their time to assist with that week's topics.

Bootcamp Life

Because learning new concepts eight hours a day for nine weeks straight can be exhausting, we make sure to balance out curriculum with a lot of fun. You can look forward to things like morning kick-off games, Salad Club on Wednesdays, Show-and-Tell on Fridays, and much more. Oh, and you’ll also have the opportunity to grab a fob for 24/7 access to the space. It’s not uncommon for students to come hang out and work on projects on the weekend or late into the evening. Sure, it’s going to be an intense nine weeks, but you’re going to have a lot of fun and make long-lasting friendships, too!

The Job Hunt & Career Support

Your job hunt officially begins on the last day of the Bootcamp, when you show off your newly minted portfolio to potential employers at Industry Day. After Bootcamp is over, we host a weekly meeting with you and your cohort-mates to support you as you transition from bootcamp to job hunt. Our Career Services department is there to offer one-on-one support, too - even once you’ve started working. Our goal is 100% placement, and because Income Share Agreements mean we only get paid when you get paid, you know without a doubt that we’re on your side.

Beyond Bootcamp

After your nine weeks of full-time Bootcamp are complete you will begin your job hunt, while participating in our part-time Beyond Bootcamp course. This six-week course that starts two weeks after your Bootcamp graduation is entirely bonus material, added to our bootcamp starting in 2019. The course runs twice a week in the evenings so that it doesn’t interfere with your job hunt. During this course, you’ll review some of the more complex concepts from Bootcamp and explore new concepts - all with the help of some of our most seasoned and talented instructors. Though over 80% of our bootcamp grads find employment within four months, we know that the job hunt can be stressful. That’s why we added this course - to help you prepare for interviews, level up your skills, and give you access to a support system during your job search. Learn more about Beyond Bootcamp.
