The second phase of Galvanize consists of real-world project work. In this phase, students spend the majority of their day working with other classmates on a longer-term project such as creating a new webapp from scratch or integrating with an existing codebase. In the second phase, we also focus heavily on interview prep with mock interviews and lectures aimed to prepare students for the job search.
Occasionally there will be a guest speaker or lecturer presenting during lunch or at the end of the day to provide insight into what a day in the life of a practicing developer is like or to cover a specialized topic not covered in the standard curriculum.
