My overall experience with Constructor Learning was great. I had no degree or any programming knowledge before the Bootcamp and I don’t even speak German. A year later after the Bootcamp, I got a job as a Software Engineer Intern at Adobe.

FAQs

What’s the non-technical interview?

Lasting 20 minutes in-person or over video call, it gives us a chance to get to know you, your professional experience, motivation and goals for participating in the program.

What’s the technical interview like for the Full-Stack program?

Regardless of coding experience, each candidate must pass a coding challenge. The potential student will receive an email with a list of explained JavaScript exercises and tutorials to complete within 10 days. A date and time will be set and the candidate will be asked specific questions over video call by an instructor on what she/he has learned during this time.

How many students are there per class?

To maintain a high level of interaction and instruction, each class has an average of 10 to max. 20 students (in-class).

Is the duration of the Bootcamps long enough?

Absolutely. For the Full-Stack and Data Science programs, 12 weeks of intensive practice (40 hours in the classroom with an additional 20-30 for course work per week) will give you what it takes to step into one of these fields.

What coding level do I need?

Many of the Full-Stack participants are beginners with some or no experience. We are more interested in your motivation and drive to succeed, from the interviews, pre-work, to completing the program.

I’d rather participate from another location. Can I attend the program remotely?

Absolutely. For those interested in this option, please select it on the application form.

Is there a difference between the in-person and remote option?

None at all. You’ll be joining the in-class participants for the same program and follow via our live stream platform. You’ll get the same attention from our staff as if you were on site.
