Full Stack Developer Program
Online & Onsite
The Full Stack Developer Program is a full-time (6-month) course, starting September 2018, with a focus on developing the technical skills needed to become a Full Stack Developer, in addition to helping learners to adopt a growth mindset to future-proof themselves in an ever-changing digital economy.
Led by on-site team leads, learners will engage with project-based experiences delivered both online and in the classroom. Participants will learn to state and analyze complex problems, uncover assumptions, collaborate with peers and distinguish between what is known and unknown to drive effective systems development.
We collaborate with industry leaders like Benevity, ATB Financial, Telus and Clio to ensure learners are acquiring in-demand transferable skills, while also building their resume and expanding their network. With the help of a dedicated coach, we work with learners to build a customized plan for their skills.
Learn to think like a developer, not just code.
In-demand development languages (ie. front end, back end, database) are taught through the lens of real-world projects. With work-readiness as a focus, EvolveU provides learners with engaging, project-based online and in-classroom learning experiences that blend both technical and non-technical skill development.
