BACKED BY EXPERIENCE

The Cal Poly Extended Education Coding Bootcamp is powered by Fullstack Academy, one of the longest-running and most successful coding bootcamps in the nation. The curriculum developers there have spent years in the web development industry--first as devs themselves, then as engineering managers for companies like Yahoo and Gilt, and eventually as owners of their own successful software companies. For the past five years, they’ve been using what they learned to educate the next wave of web developers--and now they’re bringing that expertise to the Cal Poly Extended Education Coding Bootcamp.
