"I started off with no coding experience and at the end of the 24 weeks I felt confident in my abilities to break into the field of software engineering. It definitely wasn't easy, those 60 - 80+ hour weeks they tell you about are true, but with perseverance and hard work it's worth it."

Day-to-Day at App Academy

We designed our 24 Week Online Full-Time Bootcamp to transform you into a thriving software engineer, but at a more gradual pace than our 16 Week Online Full-Time Accelerated Bootcamp.

Lecture

Every morning, you and your classmates will attend live lectures and demos (a few are pre-recorded), which will cover both theoretical and practical use cases. Next, you’ll have a chance to get any questions you have answered, during a live Q&A session, before we ask you to put the concepts you just learned into action.

8am
11am

Lunch

Take a break, eat some food, and connect with classmates. This is a great time to develop relationships with others who will be one part of your huge alumni network through App Academy.

Projects + Pair Programming

After lunch, you will pair-up with a classmate and work on projects that drive home the concepts from the morning’s lecture. Working with others is something you’ll do almost all the time in software development, so learning to adapt to different people on different projects is very important. It also helps to talk through problems with one another, work as a team, and find solutions together.

12pm
4pm

Group Review

You spent the day working through different projects to master key concepts. Now, reflect on what you just accomplished by talking about it with your classmates in a group setting. Share what you did during the day. Find out how others did things differently. Gain a wider perspective on the material by synthesizing experiences with your classmates.

Homework

Now, it’s time to get ready for the next day. You will spend an hour or so going through preparatory material for the following day’s class. You’ll get exposed to the important ideas, sleep on it, and return the next morning to take one more step toward software programming mastery.

Admissions Survey

With the survey, we’ll ask you 20 questions that will help us measure your your current logical reasoning, pattern recognition and web development skills. This survey is not based on a pass or fail grading system. Rather we’ll use your results to be able to better guide you to your next step.

Code-Along Project (requirement varies)

For those asked to complete the project, you’ll be creating a flash card app using basic HTML, CSS, and Javascript. It will take 4 hours on average to complete. This step is not required for all applicants and is based on your score on our Admissions Survey.

Non-Technical Interview

You’ll answer a series of questions and we’ll assess your professionalism, passion for coding, resiliency and work ethic, etc. during this asynchronous online interview. Most applicants will be invited for a second interview if they do not pass on their first attempt.

Acceptance & Enrollment

Once you’ve passed the Non-Technical Interview, you’ll officially be accepted to App Academy. Then you’ll work with your Admissions Specialist to select a payment plan, complete your paperwork & enroll in your desired bootcamp.
