How has the curriculum/course changed since App Academy started?

It’s changed a good amount! The biggest change was the switch from a 9 week course to a 12 week course. The 9 week course gave students a fantastic grounding as software engineers, but left the job search process informal. We decided to extend the course to 12 weeks and add a 3 week job search curriculum that helps students build their resume/portfolio/github, dives much deeper into algorithms/data structures, prepares students for whiteboarding coding questions/interviews/negotiation and generally formalizes the job application process. Apart from larger changes like this which happened in the first few cycles, the curriculum continues to evolve as we integrate feedback from students, graduates and hiring managers.
