Experience

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 an in-person group interview and acceptances will be sent out the following week. Our Bootcamp admissions process is structured to ensure that everyone accepted has what it takes to be successful not only as a Front-End Developer, but as a member of a development team and the tech community at large.

Inside the Classroom

Over your nine weeks 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.

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, and 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, HackerYou's CEO, Heather Payne, hosts a weekly meeting to support you as you transition from bootcamp to job hunt. After about a month, she moves to one-on-one meetings with job seekers to help everyone implement the HackerYou job hunting strategy, informed by everything we’ve learned from helping graduates who came before you. Even once you’ve started working, our team is available for career support. Heather and other team members are happy to offer one-on-one advice anytime. We're just a Slack message away!
