Duration: 16 weeks

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.

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.

This course is not easy. It has 5 weeks of pre-work, plus the actual course work. It's fast paced and won't slow down for you. However, it is a very supportive environment, one which doesn't require any prior knowledge of coding. If you are interested... Read More
