The Actualize bootcamp provides you with the training and experience you need to launch and succeed in your new career as a software developer. We've now brought our program online so that students anywhere can immerse themselves in the Actualize experience.

After four weeks prework, you'll complete our 12-week part-time, live online training program to learn full-stack web development. Our schedule (Sundays 9a-5p and Mon-Thurs 6-9:30p) allows you to keep your full-time job throughout the course. The online program is not a series of pre-recorded lectures. Instead, it is identical to our signature in-person part-time course, led by our Lead Instructors and joined by students all in real time.

At Actualize, we are educators before all else. We focus on educational best practices and pedagogy as we train our graduates to develop the mindset and skills they need transition to full-time software engineering, empowering them to launch rewarding lives and careers.

Course Description:

Actualize is a coding bootcamp that values quality education above all else. We only hire lead instructors who have professional educational experience in addition to professional software development experience. Our combination of teaching expertise and instruction-driven curriculum allows us to teach on a part-time basis what similar programs teach on a full-time basis. Because of this part-time schedule, our students are able to transition to successful careers in web development without having to quit their original jobs while learning to code in our program.

In addition to teaching programming skills, Actualize is committed to mentoring students find their first job in the software industry. Actualize has a deeply integrated Job Hacking curriculum, which provides the distinct skills necessary to be successful with interviews and landing a job. Actualize also offers a structured Job Hacking career support program after the bootcamp to help our graduates execute their job hunt in a specific and timely manner.

Actualize runs two award-winning programs. Our Online Live course, available to every location in North America, is the world’s only online coding bootcamp that is 100% live, including all instruction and exercises. The Online Live program uses the same immersive curriculum as the in-person program, with classes conducted real time with video conferencing. Both in-person and online classes follow the same 12 week part-time schedule on Sundays and weeknights. Our in-person course is the longest running Chicago coding bootcamp, with in-person classes available at our Chicago River North campus.

"I <3 Actualize"

I chose Actualize after reviewing many different bootcamps. Actualize enticed me most because they have had a remote program for years and the programs weren't 9-5pm, like most bootcamps. As someone who had little programming experience I knew I didn't... Read More

"Couldn't be happier"

I picked Actualize as my coding bootcamp because they have a huge number of good reviews and because they're based out of Chicago. I couldn't be happier with my decision. We focused on the core concepts from the 4-week pre-work stage through the 12-week... Read More

"Exactly what I was looking for in a bootcamp"

When I was comparing different coding bootcamps, I saw a lot of schools that focused on cramming a ton of languages into your resume. But knowing how quickly languages fall in and out of popularity, I cared more about learning the fundamentals of programming.... Read More
