Training Software Engineers with David Yang and Nimit Maru



“Javascript is like English – it hitched itself to the most powerful horse in the history of mankind, the web, and it has really exploded since then.”

Fullstack Academy is a 13-week immersive program for students to learn software engineering. Their flagship course focuses primarily on Javascript and the associated frameworks used to build real-world web applications.
