Agile Skills & Competencies


The Full Stack Developer program is a full-time 6-month course, designed to develop the technical skills needed to become a Full Stack Developer, and to help learners adopt a growth mindset to future-proof themselves in an ever-changing digital economy. A Full Stack Developer is a person who has the skills to do back-end development work (coding, databases design, and programming) and front-end development work (design and UX/UI).

Led by an on-site team lead, learners engage in project-based experiences delivered both online and in the classroom. Participants 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 Arcurve, Benevity, ATB Financial, Telus, and Clio to ensure learners are acquiring in-demand transferable skills, while also building their resume and expanding their network.
