Where our graduates work

Requirements

What you will need

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.

What you will not need

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.

What does the course teach

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 directly helpful in getting the job done and most up-to-date, 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.

Teaching methods

A bootcamp is more than just an online course: it’s a full-immersion in an interactive learning environment in which you and other students will be as closely supported as you will be actively challenged.

 
Learn by doing

Work on concrete projects based on real-life problems. Expand your skills with each new project.

Interactive online seminars

Learn to write code in live, instructor-led seminars alongside your fellow students.

Part of our world

Gain access to our virtual platform, and network with both pros and fellow students at any time of the day.

The Primer

Prior to the beginning of the bootcamp, we will give you access to our Primer. This is an introduction to the basic concepts you will be dealing with in your classes, including a thorough preparation in HTML and CSS, and it is designed to be interactive and inclusive of exercises. The Primer is mandatory for all students, as we want to make sure that everyone will hit the ground running.

Concepts & Tools

This bootcamp will focus on a targeted selection of tools intended to work in synergy with each other to turn you into a versatile, powerful web developer. Once you have mastered the basic toolkit for programming (the console, Git and GitHub), you will learn programming languages like HTML, CSS and JavaScript for Frontend web development, and Node.js and SQL for Backend web development, among various other technologies.

WEB DEVELOPMENT INTRODUCTION

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.

How Our Application Process Works

Our application process is designed to guide you, gently but clearly, into the course you want to take. Just follow these three steps:

Application FORM

(2 min)

Fill in our Application Form with your personal details and get immediate access to the coding challenge.

CODING CHALLENGE

(20 min ~ 60 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!

INTERVIEW

(30 min)

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.
