"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 online, full-time coding bootcamp to give you the same successful outcome as our campus-based, full-time programs, but from your own home.


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.



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.


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.


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.
