FUNDAMENTALS

In web development, as in sports, you can’t succeed without a solid grounding in the fundamentals. That’s why our curriculum begins with a deep dive into the building blocks of programming - Data Structures & Algorithms. We then hone those fundamentals every Sunday in our technical interview prep so you feel ready to tackle any company’s interview. That said, we recognize that the surest way to impress prospective employers and get job offers is to demonstrate your skills on real-world projects. You’ll be working on monthly coding projects and will have to complete a final capstone project to ensure you earn Build A Dev’s Full Stack degree.

MONDAY-FRIDAY

You will have live lectures Monday to Friday from 8 PM EST - 9 PM EST. These will be taught by an industry veteran in a maximum class size of 30 students. These will be focused and extremely interactive classes that get you ready for your weekly lab and monthly projects. Your instructor will also hold weekly office hours to help you with any questions you may have.

SATURDAY

Every Saturday from 7 PM EST - 9 PM EST , you will get together with your lab group for 2-hours and complete weekly lab exercises that will help you conceptualize the week’s lectures and get you ready for your monthly projects. These lab sessions will be led by a lab instructor who will be doing a demo at the start of each lab and be there for any questions you may have.

SUNDAY

Build A Dev places a high emphasis on getting you ready for technical interviews. We understand how difficult they are and how daunting they can appear. However, with 2-hours of prep every Sunday from 7 PM EST - 9 PM EST , we are confident you will be an interview whiz by the time you graduate. Learn patterns and techniques to solve any techncial question and practice from our curated guide of interview questions. As you get closer to graduation, we will start doing mock interview prep with you and whiteboard exercises so you can build your confidence and land your first job as a developer!

PROJECTS AND CAPSTONE

We have exciting monthly projects that will help you cement all the technical concepts you have been learning. Add unique and challenging front-end, back-end, and full-stack projects to your portfolio and land your first developer job. Finally, participate in building your capstone project in the last two months of the program with 2-3 of your fellow peers and showcase your full-stack mastery. This will serve as the final piece of the puzzle before you graduate with Build A Dev’s full-stack nano degree.
