How it Works

For both part-time and full-time coding bootcamps, the Grace Hopper Program curriculum is divided into 3 phases. Starting with Foundations, you’ll master Javascript fundamentals plus basic HTML and CSS to support your development in the Junior and Senior phases.

During the Senior phase, you’ll have the opportunity to showcase your skills with a real-world application project. This is also the phase in which you’ll start to work with our professional career coaches to refine your resume, network, and interview skills. That way, you’ll graduate job-ready with technical and practical prowess–plus the portfolio to prove it.

Phases

In this part-time introductory phase, all students rise to the same technical level.

Overview

  • Part-time
  • Regular timed assessments
  • Rolling start each Friday

Curriculum

  • HTML & CSS

  • Advanced JavaScript Closure, scoping, prototypal inheritance, recursion

  • Web development environment

  • Intro to front-end vs. back-end development

Resources

  • Videos, workshops, projects

  • Experienced industry mentor

  • Discussion forum

This is one of the more intense phases of the program, when you will be delving into practical application of your code. You will study:

1. Front-end development

User expectations of Web and Mobile Applications have significantly increased in the last 10 years, and the sophistication of front-end development has increased to match it. You will study HTML5 and advanced CSS, and go beyond with modern technologies like React.

2. Back-end development

You will take your JavaScript skills to the back-end, with Node.js and the amazing ecosystem of libraries that have made JavaScript the leader in next-generation back-end web engineering. You will master the use of APIs to connect to vast amounts of user data.

3. Databases

You will master data persistence by building your own SQL database engine, learning about popular SQL databases like Postgres, and how to integrate these into your applications.

At this point, you will have a solid understanding of the core technologies taught in the immersive program. It is now time to put that knowledge to use by building fully functional web applications from scratch. You will continue to deepen your knowledge by solving real-world problems and learning best practices.

1. Guided team project

You will work in a group of 3-4 students to build an e-commerce site and will build all the components of a web application from the ground up — including the front-end, back-end and database.

2. Personal project

You will come up with an idea for a web or mobile application, and build it from scratch. You will take design considerations into account, like user experience and information architecture. You will learn new technologies or libraries in order to complete this project, which will help you "learn how to learn" new areas in software development.

3. Capstone project

You will work with a team of students to come up with an ambitious idea for an app, then build it out. This will be the most impressive project in your portfolio, and will demonstrate your full understanding of software development and industry best-practices.


What We Look For in Grace Hopper Program Students

The Software Engineering Immersive at the Grace Hopper Program is designed to be both challenging and rewarding. Our curriculum provides all the tools you need to succeed, including an immersive online environment, expert instructional material, optimized learning tools, and engaging activities.

It’s our remarkable student experiences and outcomes that truly set us apart, though. For these, we rely on the commitment of the entire Grace Hopper Program community–its current students, staff, and alums. That’s why we encourage prospective students to ensure that they possess or aspire to these qualifications before submitting their application.

Foundational Coding Skills

The bootcamp does not start at a pure beginner level, so you will need to already be comfortable with coding fundamentals (loops, conditionals, arrays, objects, and functions). Take our Intro to Coding or Bootcamp Prep course to get started.

Drive

Coding bootcamps are built for accelerated learning to launch your career sooner. That means topics will be covered quickly, and you may need to set aside additional time for study, mentorship, or skills practice to stay on track.

Transparency

You’ll have support every step of the way, but it is up to you to communicate your specific needs. Be sure to master regular, honest correspondence across all channels to collaborate effectively with others.

Allyship

More than teamwork alone, allyship requires respect, empathy, and understanding. Students should be aligned with our mission - to transform lives and communities with technologies that power the future - and committed to equity and diversity in tech.
