The Front-End Immersive Program
How much time am I expected to commit?
For our weekend course, class is scheduled 10AM – 5pm. For our evening course, classes are scheduled Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday from 5pm-10pm. On top of scheduled course time, we anticipate students to spend anywhere between 8-10 hours a week learning to code through our hybrid online platform. It’s up to you how far you want to take this course!
What is the daily schedule?
The day will start with announcements and a lecture followed by hands on programming. After break you will continue to work or have another short lecture followed by more hands on programming. At varying dates, guest speakers, random Q&As, and industry networking will take place during course hours.
What will I learn over 10 weeks?
After 10 intense and satisfying weeks you will have learned the essentials of web development fundamentals, and how to think like a programmer.
You will emerge with the confidence to tackle new and old technical challenges that may have intimidated you before.
Students will cover the following topics:
- HTML / CSS
- Git / Github
- Data Structures
- Single Page App Architecture
- Servers / API
- Project Management / Soft Skills
But remember, learning how to program is a lifelong endeavour and we urge you to continue learning the niche you are most passionate about.
What is the student to instructor ratio?
Our goal is to maintain a high student-instructor ratio depending on the day and the lesson. By keeping the class size low, we give our students more one on one time with our instructors and course mentors!
Am I guaranteed a job after taking AngelHack EDU?
Unfortunately, there is no way we can guarantee a job X days after ending the course. That being said, our goal is to help give you the tools, the experience, and the network to move forward. We are not aiming to send you off to a senior level position, but rather with a skillset better than that of an entry-level programmer.
In addition to covering the topics mentioned above (see list of topics), you will have the opportunity to interact and receive advice from Senior Web Developers, recruiters, hiring managers, and employers throughout the program. You will also have the opportunity to attend a Career Night held for the graduating cohort. During Career Night, you will meet and interact with select hiring companies in your city.
How will this program prepare me for getting a job?
We will help you build a strong foundation required to become a web developer. We don’t just teach how to code. We will be teaching you how to think like a programmer, and also how to build and utilize other highly desirable skills (soft skills) that are lacking in many of today’s developers.
We will also highly recommend our Apprenticeship program, which will allow you to see into the industry as an intern before you make the dive headfirst. We will be preparing you through interview processes, and resume critiques. We won’t just get you a job, we want to help you build a career!
