Why Choose a Part-Time Coding Bootcamp for Women
Comprehensive learning outcomes.
Unlike other part-time offerings, the Grace Hopper Program part-time coding bootcamp is designed with the same curriculum concepts, web development projects, career support, and outcomes as our full-time programs. That means you don’t have to sacrifice valuable instruction and a gender-allied environment in favor of a part-time schedule—you can have it all.
Weekday evening classes.
Part-time coding bootcamp classes are held on weekday evenings only (Eastern time), so you can work, provide care, or tend to other life commitments during standard business hours.
Steady instructional pace.
While still rigorous and fast-paced, our part-time coding curriculum structure aims to provide a consistent workload week over week.
Our set weekly schedule, online help desk, and sophisticated Learning Management System combine to help you manage part-time coding bootcamp on top of your day-to-day responsibilities.
Community and Accountability.
Regular attendance and outside-of-class study are a must for success in bootcamp learning, but can be difficult to maintain. According to the Pew Research Center, this is especially true for women and nonbinary coders, who often carry heavier domestic workloads than their male counterparts.
The Grace Hopper Program part-time coding bootcamp environment fosters a built-in community of peers with whom you can build lasting professional relationships—supporting and motivating each other to reach your full potential throughout bootcamp and beyond.

- Front-End Framework - You’ll start to understand pre-written modules and their primary use cases in web development.
- Pair Programming - Working with a fellow student, you’ll each use your newfound knowledge to write and optimize front-end code. This helps you build real-world experience and prepare for technical coding interviews.
React, React Router, and React Hooks
- Prototyping - Throughout bootcamp, you’ll begin each project by scoping, researching, and beginning to build full stack web applications—touching on every stage of a typical, real-world prototype development process.
You’ll master data organization and storage by working with SQL relational databases and learn how to integrate them into your applications. Then, it’s time to start building your own full stack application!
- Full Stack Capstone Project - You will work with a team of students to come up with an ambitious idea for an app, and start building 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.
- Full Stack Project Pitching - After formulating your own idea for a web or mobile application, you’ll pitch it to the class. Taking market, design, and utility considerations into account, you’ll understand through your pitch process how development projects come to fruition in real-world scenarios.
- Portfolio Development - As you complete your full stack web development projects, all your code will be housed in GitHub to demonstrate your technical prowess and creativity to potential employers.
- Career Coaching - Grace Hopper Program Career Coaches are your one-stop professional development resource. They’ll work with you on core aspects of the job search–from interview preparation to resume optimization–throughout the final stages of your bootcamp experience and beyond.

Who Should Pursue the Part-Time Coding Bootcamp?
The Grace Hopper Program at Fullstack Academy has graduated women and non-binary students of all personal and professional backgrounds. We believe that furthering our mission to close the gender gap in tech depends on increasing access to quality tech education for learners of all starting skill levels, including those who are new to code.
Instead, these are the archetypes (and their associated interpersonal skills) we look for in prospective Grace Hopper Program part-time coding bootcamp students. These skills not only translate to lasting software engineering careers for individuals, but help to build a better tech industry overall.
When you set out to do something, you follow through without hesitation. You’re often the most consistent and reliable person on a team, but your true strength lies in your efficiency, forethought, and detail-oriented approach to get the job done.
Whether or not you’re a parent or caregiver in your personal life, you’re always anticipating the needs of others. You do your best work under pressure—or in the absence of a clear solution—thanks to your affinity for creative problem-solving.
You care deeply about the health and safety of your community, and are motivated by helping it to thrive. A dream job scenario for you involves creating or contributing to actionable initiatives that power a diverse, equitable future.
