Event description


Get Prepared for the March 19th Web Development Immersive

If you are considering becoming a Galvanize Web Development Immersive student, this part-time course will give you the guidance and support necessary to decide whether our program is a good fit for you, and it will give you access to the study resources and instruction necessary to set you up for success. Think of it as a way to dip your does in the programming waters before committing to a career change!

Why take this part-time course?

New to programming or feeling misdirected by self-teaching? This program was developed for you! With a curriculum designed to give you the fundamental building blocks of JavaScript, this part-time course is intended to help you determine if the Galvanize Web Development Immersive program is a good fit for you. We do this by providing curriculum and instruction that will be foundational to your programming journey.

If you complete the course successfully, our hope is that you will know:

  • some new programming skills;

  • whether you enjoy programming;

  • how much work you need to do to be successful in our Web Development Immersive admissions process!

NOTE: Successful completion of this part-time course does not guarantee acceptance into the Galvanize Web Development Immersive program, although our goal is for it to provide the necessary building blocks to do so. Part-time courses do not offer career services.

What You’ll Learn:

By the end of this part-time course you will learn:

  • JavaScript Basics -- variables, conditionals, loops, and functions.

  • Intermediate JavaScript concepts like scope and higher-order functions

  • How to optimize your computer for software development

  • Problem-solving skills, debugging

  • How to Think Like A Developer

Tuition Discount:

100% of this part-time course payment can be used as tuition discount for our Web Development Immersive in the following cities: San Francisco, Seattle, Austin, Boulder, Phoenix, New York. For these cities, candidates must enroll in an Immersive that begins within 1 year of the completion of their part-time course(s). Candidates can take the part-time course in any city. If you have taken another part-time course already, we'll credit 75% of the cost of both part-time courses towards your tuition discount.

Tuesdays, 6:30pm-8:00pm - Optional Office Hours and JavaScript Meetup

Prerequisites: None.

• Bring your laptop and power cable.
