The Front-End Immersive Program
How much time am I expected to commit?
Technically, the program is scheduled 9AM – 6PM Monday through Saturday. However, we anticipate students to spend anywhere between 65 – 80 hours a week learning to code. It’s really up to you.
What is the daily schedule?
The day will start with announcements and a lecture followed by hands on programming. After lunch you will continue to work or have another short lecture followed by more hands on programming. Afternoons and evenings will vary from extra coding time, to guest speakers, to random Q&As, to game nights and activities.
What will I learn over 12 weeks?
After 12 intense and satisfying weeks you will have learned the essentials of web development fundamentals, and how to think like an engineer. 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:
- Automation tools
- Version Control
- Responsive Design
- Photoshop (catered for developers)
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 8:1 student-instructor ratio depending on the day and the lesson. The maximum amount of students in each cohort is 20.
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 your best shot at getting a fresh start. We are not aiming to send you off at a Senior level 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 foundation of the skill set required to become a web developer. But we don’t just teach how to code. We will also be integrating and building other highly desirable skills (soft skills) that are lacking in many of today’s developers.
We will also help critique your resumes and get your online resume and portfolio ready for potential employers.
