Local instructors and admissions team for an Information Session to learn more about our 24-week Web Development Immersive program. After we cover the basics of this course, we'll switch gears and let you ask individual questions about the course!

Our Web Development Immersive is for people who are serious about becoming developers. Over the course of 24 weeks, we'll teach you how to build and maintain a series of web applications using modern technologies (full-stack Javascript) and industry best practices.

This information session is the perfect place to learn a little bit more about what it means to be a web developer and start planning the next steps of your career.

Our immersive program is twice as long as the typical coding school because we do more than just teach how to write code: we teach you how to be a contributing member of a development team. Our unique setting in the Galvanize community of start-ups and tech companies is the perfect place to learn, gain hands on experience with real world projects, and expand your network.
