Like a thesis, our students’ Capstone Projects are the proof of the pudding. They spend the last two weeks of the program in an intensive project mode simulating a real-world environment and synthesizing all the skills learned at Codeup. The Capstones are a collaborative group project that challenge students to complete complex work on a short timeline in a diverse team. Through daily instructor standups, group and individual work time, students complete an entire work product.
In the Web Development track, students invent, design, build, and present original and fully-functional full-stack web applications. These applications synthesize front-end design to back-end functionality. In the Data Science track, students work collaboratively to find, work with, model, deploy, and present findings from a large, real data set. They simulate pitching a stakeholder on an action that will impact their business and telling that story.
Capstone projects are deployed for our Developer Day. Here, students showcase what they’ve learned, put their skills to the test, and grind, grind, grind! If you’re wondering what you’ll learn at Codeup, the Capstones are it!

Codeup has an awesome staff that is fully behind you and your success. I came to Codeup knowing absolutely zero code, and left so excited to continue learning. They not only teach you the fundamentals of coding, but connect you with people who want to hire you. Liz Cole
