Faqs

You've Got Questions We've Got Answers

  • What is a Full Stack?

    A Full Stack is made up of the front-end, the back-end, and the database. The front-end is what you see when you go onto the internet: the colors, the buttons, the content, etc. Each full stack uses different tools, frameworks, and technologies. So when we say we teach a "full-stack", we mean we will teach you the language as well as the associated front and back-end tools you'll need to create your own application start to finish.

  • Why 3 stacks vs 1? What are the benefits?

    We teach 3 stacks because we have found that very few companies use only one language, but also because learning to learn is an essential skill for a developer. According to a survey of over 100,000 developers by HackerRank published in 2020, 60% of full-stack developers were required to learn a completely new framework in the last year—more than any other role polled. Full-stack developers also have to learn the most languages: 45% reported that they had to pick up a new one within the last year. In addition, a survey by Stack Overflow of 65,000 developers said 75% of respondents noted that they learn a new technology at least every few months or once a year. By learning 3 stacks now, you’ll feel confident learning new technologies going forward.

  • Is it realistic to learn so many languages so fast?

    We've been around since 2012. Our curriculum is based on 10 years of learning science. Collectively, our team has taught over 6000 students, and we have found that the 3 full stack model really helps our students stand out from the pack. As long as you put in the work, our instructors and student success team will be there to help.

  • Is this REALLY beginner-friendly?

    Yes! 70-80% of our students don't have coding experience when they enroll in the program. Lots of bootcamps say they don't require coding experience, but then have all these hurdles to getting started. We don't have a coding challenge or technical assessment to enroll, because we know that we can teach you, no matter where you start.

  • I work for myself and want to develop my own app? Do I need 3 full stacks?

    That totally depends on what type of app you are building! Some apps can be run on one full-stack, some can't. If you have a specific app in mind, your instructor can definitely help you create a plan to build it.

  • Do I have to decide on adding a second or third stack right now?

    Nope! You can choose to add on a new stack at any time during the program.

  • Do I have to start my second stack right away?

    Nope! You can take a pause for up to 8 weeks in between stacks.

  • Which stack should I do first?

    We highly recommend that students start with Python unless they have a strong conviction about learning MERN or Java. Over the years, we’ve seen that Python is the best first stack to quickly ramp-up a beginner, because it tends to be easier to learn and is also just as effective as our other stacks in terms of teaching you software development. Python reads the most like english, which makes writing / reading the code much easier for beginners. Java is considered intermediate, so we recommend that as your second stack. MERN is the most complicated, and would be pretty hard for a beginner to grasp.

  • What if I only want to take one stack? Will I still be able to get a job?

    Of course! There are plenty of roles out there for full-stack developers that choose to specialize in one language. However, if you choose to learn multiple stacks you might have a wider range of opportunities, and your portfolio might be more robust for interviews. In addition, you may find it easier to learn new technologies or languages down the line - a mission-critical skill for developers!

  • What is the average salary made upon graduation?

    Our grads have seen an average starting salary of $72,000 nationwide.
