I just finished taking the Part-Time JavaScript course this fall and have found it to be an incredible experience that has really expanded my toolkit as a developer and solidified my love of coding/web development. I had previously taken the Web Development Fundamentals course at HY and decided that I wanted to learn some interactive skills and explore web development a bit more before committing to a career change, and I'm definitely glad that I did.

This course is very in-depth and does a great job of giving you a foundation in JavaScript, as well as various libraries, frameworks and developer tools. Although there was a lot to learn and every single class felt packed with content, the course was really well-paced, especially with the timing of the projects. You’re pretty much constantly doing exercises in class to solidify what you just learned, which is very helpful when dealing with something like JavaScript, where a lot of the concepts tend to be a bit more abstract and harder to wrap your head around immediately than HTML/CSS. This is definitely not a course where you can slack off and skip classes and expect to keep up, but if you really commit to learning and practicing the concepts introduced in each class, and use your projects as an opportunity to challenge yourself, you will come out with a really solid understanding of JavaScript and be primed to continue your learning as a developer - and hopefully have a few cool interactive sites/apps you’ve built to show off as well!

As pretty much everyone has mentioned, the environment at HackerYou is really conducive to learning to code. Our instructors were always incredibly knowledgeable, supportive and willing to help, while still encouraging us to think through issues we encountered and empowering us to think like developers and learn to debug our own work. I was fortunate to have some overlap in instructors for my Web Development and JavaScript courses and while I'm sad to no longer be learning under their guidance, I know that they will do an incredible job with all of their future students.

As someone going into the full-time bootcamp program this fall, I definitely feel a lot more confident knowing I have a solid foundation in JavaScript to build on. As other reviews have mentioned, I highly recommend taking this course prior to bootcamp, if that is the path you are interested in. However, regardless of your eventual path, there’s no doubt that this course will immerse you in the core concepts of JavaScript in a positive and productive learning environment, and set you up for success on your journey as a developer.

Before HackerYou I was at a bank, doing a job that simply wasn’t the right fit for me. But through it, I used Excel primarily and realized I could use a programming language called Visual Basic to make some macro. It was then I realized how coding isn’t as hard as I thought it was, and in fact I quite enjoyed it. On January 2018 I left my job, took the part-time beginner/advanced web development courses, then moving on to the full-time bootcamp.
I don’t think you can find a more supportive environment than HackerYou. I think Heather and her team has done an incredible job fostering the right culture and mindset. I believe almost anyone can succeed here as long as you follow the formula, and you’re not afraid to take that first step.

FAQ

  • I’m brand new to coding. Where should I start?

    If you’re looking to learn how to code, we recommend our part-time Web Development Fundamentals & Advanced Web Development courses. These are designed for complete beginners. You’ll start by learning the very basics of HTML, CSS, and responsive web design.  By the end of the Advanced course, you’ll be able to code a responsive multi-page website entirely from scratch!

  • Do you offer any form of financial aid?

    Students who complete our part-time Intro to Web Development course are eligible to receive a $1,500 scholarship if accepted to the Web Development Immersive program! Students who also complete Advanced Web Development are eligible for an additional $500 scholarship. On top of that if accepted to the Web Development Immersive, students who have taken any of our other part-time Intro courses are eligible to receive a $500 scholarship, and an additional $500 scholarship for taking the Advanced course. If you’ve taken both the part-time Web Development courses and another set of part-time courses – you can combine your scholarships and receive $3,000+ off the program. Other than that, we don’t offer any internal forms of financial aid, grants or scholarships. Our friends at Borrowell and Financeit do provide personal loans to HackerYou students enrolled in part-time courses and full-time courses, though!

  • Do you offer payment plans?

    Due to the competitive nature of our programs, we normally aren’t able to offer payment plans. However, if a student has a specific situation, we’ll always do our best to accommodate.

  • When is my tuition due?

    For all of our part-time courses, a deposit of $1000 plus HST is due immediately upon registration to secure your spot in the course. The remaining balance is then due two weeks before the program begins. Tuition MUST be paid in full before the program starts in order to gain access to course resources including course notes. For our Web Development Immersive, 50% of tuition is due immediately upon acceptance into the program, plus a $100 registration fee. The remaining 50% is  due two weeks before the program begins.

  • Does HackerYou qualify for OSAP?

    Not yet! Private Career Colleges must be in operation for 2 years before students are eligible to apply for OSAP. Our Web Development Immersive was only registered as an approved program under the Private Career College Act 2005 in December 2016. Please note that when we are OSAP-eligible, it will only be for our full-time program and not part-time courses. If you’re employed and interested in taking a part-time course with us, we’ve partnered with Borrowell, who offer personal loans to students enrolled in our part-time courses.

  • Is my tuition tax deductible?

    As a registered Private Career College in Ontario, we provide T2202a forms for students who complete the Web Development Immersive program. For students who completed this program before January 2017, we cannot retroactively issue T2202a forms. Unfortunately, due to our standing as a Private Career College, we cannot provide a tax form for any of our part-time courses, as they are not diploma or certificate programs. For more information on Ontario’s Private Career Colleges, check out the Private Career Colleges Act 2005.

  • Do you provide certificates upon completion of one of your courses?

    Students who complete the Full-Time Web Development Immersive program will receive a certificate. We do not provide certificates for our part-time courses. We’re happy to provide documentation of completion for part-time courses, however, if required by your employer.

  • Do you accept International Students?

    Yes, we do and have accepted international students to our programs in the past. Students applying to the Web Development Immersive with a non-Canadian postsecondary diploma must have their degrees assessed as equivalent to a Canadian postsecondary diploma or degree by a recognized assessment service. HackerYou does not require you to have a particular type of visa in order to attend due to the length of our programs. For more information, you can learn more about being a Visitor to Canada on the Citizenship and Immigration CanadaWebsite. If you wish to stay and work in Canada after the program, please note that HackerYou is unable to assist students in obtaining a Canadian Working Visa. We encourage prospective Web Development Immersive students to look into the process before applying to the program as to not delay your job hunt upon completion of the program.
