Professional Software Development in Full-Stack JavaScript

Cost: $24,000
Duration: 25 weeks
Locations: Online
Course Description:

Any working software developer will tell you that becoming hirable is about more than learning to write some code. That's why Alchemy's courses were designed by our instructional team of senior developers so you can learn in a hands-on, iterative progression. It simulates what will be expected of you in a professional setting. Our program launches grads toward exponential opportunity and salary growth.

Whether you've never looked at code or have already completed a bootcamp or online course, Alchemy graduates emerge as industry-ready software developers. The full-time, 25-week program teaches students progressively through four segments, which are each six weeks long.

00 ONBOARDING: One Week of Getting Ready for Professional Software Development
01 WEB: Introduction to Full Stack Web Development
02 REACT: Modern React in Full Stack Web Development
03 ADV REACT: Advanced Professional React Development
04 EXPRESS: Backend Servers and Data Modeling - REST APIs and Real Time with Web Sockets

Lessons are organized around a series of learning objectives—clear statements of what you will be able to do—and a combination of deliverables you progressively complete, fix, build from scratch, and improve. By avoiding limited tutorials, sandboxes, or pre-recorded videos, you'll be able to quickly connect concepts to application, ask questions, and apply what you learn to real software development applications outside the classroom (where it matters).

Alongside learning these specific technologies, you'll develop the problem-solving skills, and technical design and architecture thinking that you'll need as a professional software developer.

Career support is integrated from day one so that every student is fully supported in planning and achieving their career and job obtainment goals. Graduates of our program move directly into rewarding careers as full time software developers without the need for an internship.

Subjects:
CSS, Git, HTML, Github, PostgreSQL, Heroku, NPM, API, Redux, React.js, SQL, Node.js, Express.js, JavaScript, Back-End Web Development, Front-End Web Development

"Inconsistency Ruins an Otherwise Solid Experience"

TLDR: My experience at Alchemy contained a lengthy break (due to legal issues with curriculum)from classes before I was even three months in. After that break they had a new curriculum that treated my cohort as guinea pigs. I am left in the dark with... Read More

"Top notch curriculum, brilliant instructors, and they actually give a crap about you."

Alchemy was the best decision I could have made for myself and my career. Through my time at Alchemy, I never felt like I was just another student they were trying to get through. I felt like I was seen as a whole person with a desire to become a software... Read More

"The free Dev 101 course was excellent, and everything I've seen leads me to believe the full bootcamp will be excellent"

In terms of the bootcamp's first module being called Dev 102 and requiring you to be familiar with the concepts covered in Dev 101, it's potentially quite easy to be prepared for the bootcamp without taking Dev 101 - but it's still the best way to determine... Read More
