Become a Full-Stack Web & App Developer within 15 weeks!
The goal of this 15-week full-time program is to turn you into a fully operational Full-Stack Web & App Developer. Graduates of this course typically find employment as Junior Developers within a very short time.
The lessons taught cover a diverse set of technologies which make for the perfect springboard onto the tech scene. As you acquire a deep understanding of modern web development, you will be primed to add more technologies, languages, and frameworks which will help you develop your career.
If you’re unable to attend full-time, please check our part-time Web & App Development course!
Many of the concepts you will learn will be new and unfamiliar to you. The material we’ll present you with will push you outside of your comfort zone. This is natural. Embrace it.
Our bootcamp is open to international students, and it is in English. You don’t have to be a native speaker, but you should know the language well enough to be able to follow a class, and communicate with your fellow students, without slowing everyone else down.
We offer this course in German too. Please find more details on the German course page.
Our virtual platform, where you will meet your instructors and study alongside your peers, is online. To join us, you will need a computer or a laptop connected to the Internet, along with speakers/headphones and a microphone.
Our bootcamp assumes no prior knowledge. The elementary aspects of coding will be covered in the primer, and the basics in the first few weeks. It’s fine if you’ve never coded before at all. Remember that every master knew nothing at the beginning.
Coding is fundamentally about building things, not about numbers or calculations. While it requires a measure of abstract, logical thinking, this is not the same as demanding any special intuition for equations or geometric shapes. Many of our graduates never touched maths since high school.
You are here to learn together with others, not to outdo them. A collaborative, friendly attitude is essential, and your only benchmark for progress should be yourself.
You will learn how to create websites and mobile applications (Apps) from the ground up. The bootcamp includes a thorough training in both the functionality and interactivity of software, as well as in its final design and presentation, providing you with an all-round range of skills (a ‘full stack’) that will make you qualified for work in virtually all fields of web development.
The focus of this bootcamp is more practical than theoretical, and we will cover those tools that are most up-to-date and most directly helpful in getting the job done, rather than those which are most ‘historically’ important. The final weeks will be dedicated to developing a real-world coding project in teams, in conditions similar to those you might expect to find in a real tech company, with the objective of producing something that you can immediately showcase to prospective employers.
Learn how to work efficiently with the Console and with Git, essential tools which will make your life as a developer easier. You will also pick up the basics of website design.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Get to know the basics of website design and turn a PSD file into code.
Git is an Open Source Distributed Version Control System which helps to avoid code conflicts between developers.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) enable external software to communicate with your program.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Structured Query Language (SQL) is a programming language for storing, retrieving and manipulating data stored in databases.
MongoDB is a popular NoSQL database, widely known for its power and scalability.
Create your own APIs to provide other applications with services and data on demand. Further deepen your knowledge in build tools and deployment of live applications.
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
Express is a powerful NodeJS framework, offering a variety of features that will allow you to write powerful backend code.
It’s time to put everything you have learned to use: build a full-scale project from the ground up, with teammates, in conditions similar to those you will meet in the tech industry itself. Design something for use in the real world, and showcase it in your portfolio once you start applying for jobs.
Before the bootcamp you will be given access to our Primer. Think of it as a ‘mini-course’, inclusive of exercises and full-time support by one of our junior instructors, intended to introduce you to the basic concepts you’ll be dealing with in your classes. The Primer takes 2 weeks and its purpose is to make sure each student has the core notions necessary to hit the ground running at the start of the bootcamp.
At the end of the bootcamp, our students are given the opportunity to present their final projects to our entire community as part of our grand Demo Day event. They can also have their presentation recorded on video, with a view towards sharing it with prospective employers. Click on the videos to see for yourself what their projects look like and what level our students have reached. Remember – in 15 weeks, you will be able to do the same!
During the course, the structure of the weeks will vary to adapt to the learning content of the moment, but in general this is what a typical week looks like. Please note that the course is also available in a part-time format if the following schedule is not suitable for you.
Learning software development on your own is tough. At WBS CODING SCHOOL you can count on the full support of your instructors and classmates. Each class has an assigned full-time lead instructor and additional teaching assistants in accordance with the number of students. There is always someone to help you when you need it.
Students who complete our course will be awarded a WBS CODING SCHOOL Graduation Certificate. The document testifies to future or potential employers the acquisition of precise coding skills in accordance with the selected course. Expect this to become a staple of your tech-related CV or professional profile.
Aspiring young programmer Justin Horn was disappointed by the way university prepared him for the world of work – but coding bootcamps turned out to be a completely different experience.
How long will it take you to start on your first job if you start learning to code today? A case-by-case approach.
Our pioneering hybrid concept offers a unique learning experience which lets you enjoy the comforts of remote study and reap the benefits of learning on campus, all in a single course. For those who do not wish to travel to Berlin, we also offer a more established learning protocol in the form of an online-only course, designed to set new industry standards and optimised to the needs of those studying from home.
For the first 13 weeks you will study remotely on our virtual learning platform together with your classmates. Live and interactive coding classes led by professional instructors, lectures, workshops, team coding challenges and much more – and you decide whether to join from home, from your family retreat, or from your favorite neighbourhood Cafe.
And for the final 2 weeks you can choose between coming to our Berlin Campus or continuing remotely.

Our application process is designed to guide you, gently but clearly, into the course you want to take. Just follow these three steps:
(10 min ~ 30 min)
Solve our coding challenge. The purpose of this step is to allow us to evaluate your level of coding experience, and of course to ensure we are enrolling motivated students. If you find yourself struggling, just send us a line. We’re here to help, particularly if you’re inexperienced!
Time to get to know each other! Schedule a 30 minute interview with one of our Admission Managers and introduce yourself. We’ll want to know a little bit more about you, particularly what makes you get up in the morning and why you want to learn to code. You can also ask any questions of your own, or clarify anything you’re still uncertain about
Get in touch with us, and we will be more than happy to answer all of your questions.
We will get back to you as soon as possible.
