Find the best bootcamp for you

Not sure if you're looking at the right bootcamps? Answer a few questions and we'll help you find top schools that fit your needs.

At this nine-week bootcamp, you’ll learn HTML5, CSS3, responsive design, design theory, jQuery, JavaScript and WordPress, plus all of the skills you need to run your own freelance business. To create the curriculum, the HackerYou team collaborated with developer Ahmed Omran. In addition to his developer background, he has a great background in education and documented the thought that went into designing the HackerYou educational experience.

The program runs for nine weeks, during which you’ll be at HackerYou HQ five days a week from about 10 am to 6 pm. The program has over 360 hours of class time where you will learn through hundreds of exercises, a major project assignment each week and an educational thread focused on helping you to develop the skills you’ll need to succeed as a freelancer. You will also get great personal attention. There are three instructors per course and a cap of 25 students.

The application process begins with an online application. Next, you can expect an in-person or Skype video interview with Heather Payne, HackerYou's founder and CEO. She'll chat with you to determine if HackerYou is a mutual fit. Next, you'll receive some case study questions meant to highlight the realities of life as a freelancer. Once returned, the HackerYou team will discuss your application and decide as a team to offer you a conditional acceptance. The acceptance becomes official upon your completion of the pre- course work and submitting a three-item portfolio of websites you've built.

HackerYou was founded by the team who introduced Ladies Learning Code in 2011, and to date it is the only programming bootcamp in existence founded and run by women. So, although it's co-ed, typically 70% of students are female. It's a great bootcamp for those who appreciate diversity and are looking for a social and collaborative environment.

  • Julia Miskey's review

    Anyone looking to begin their journey into web development should seriously consider HackerYou. I did the Web Development Fundamentals and Advanced Web Development courses in 2017 and my experience with HackerYou were remarkable from the get-go. Not only were the instructors and mentors super helpful, but I got to be apart of a great community! I hope to start the bootcamp in April. I would recommend HackerYou to everyone.
