Code 42 is a computer-programming training program, which provides its curriculum completely free-of-charge to its students.
The program started in Paris, France in 2013 with the aim of improving France's technology sector by developing more qualified technical candidates within France.
The coding education program is offered in the USA and France intended for students aged 18 to 30, and training takes place over a period of 3 to 5 years. Students are not required to have a degree or a specific technical background and the program is entirely free. Admission is determined through a series of rounds of tests to lower the competitive applicant pool down to only the most qualified candidates. 42 revolves around project-based "peer to peer" learning to better teach information techn...Read more

Fullstack Academy is a great experience. Founders David and Nimit are clearly incredibly thoughtful individuals who truly care about the students coming through the program. They are value-driven, and are interested not just in making money and churning out code-monkeys, but in having a positive impact on the field and society. (This comes across through their interest in projects that work for social good, for instance, as well as establishing from day one that the exclusionary environment often endemic to coding culture is *not* part of Fullstack.) Instructors are passionate, extremely intelligent, and come from a variety of backgrounds (some were CS majors, others were self-taught and then worked in industry, others were themselves graduates of the program). The curriculum is engagin...Read more
The pros are you exposed to a wide range of tools and applications to be able design a responsive websites.
The Cons would be, there is less assistance on required software setups or none on some of the relevant softwares for the course. For instalnce, at different stages of the course I was expected to work on Sublime Text, Codelobster, Balsamiq Marup language, and Bootstrap which i have no clue what to do about it.
42's piscine is brutal, and it should be. It is a month where you learn how to program in C without using the standard library. Yes, I know this sounds weird, and senseless. What is the point of half-learning something? Well, the point of the 42 piscine is not creating "full stack engineers who are ready to hire and make professional WordPress websites in 4 weeks" because: A) there are plenty of those schools out there. B) It is nice in theory, but being a one trick pony is not beneficial to anyone in the long run. And C) Because this bootcamp is not just a coding bootcamp, it is a filter for students who want to get into the 3-5 year long program to see if they can do it, and if they actually like programming (how many times you go into college wanting to be a doctor and finish doing ...Read more
I could not speak more highly of this program, and I know that many of my classmates felt the same way after we graduated.
I have never felt more involved in or more rewarded by an education program in my life. You are taught extremely useful technologies in a very pragmatic way. Students that fall behind are given ample help. There are multiple teachers, you can ask the staff (all developers) for help, and each class has a group of 10 or so TAs made up of students that just finished learning the same skills and concepts you are inevitably going to struggle with.
Finding a job was very easy after completing the program. They have several staff members that will actively help you. I moved to Pittsburgh and was given a ton of assitance, despite the distance.
Could not reccomend ...Read more
During my time at the bootcamp, I thoroughly enjoyed virtually all the lectures and workshops - instructors were very clear and knowledgeable about the technologies they were teaching as well as engaging and amiable. They also had a passion for seeing their students succeed that eclipses what I see at even an Ivy League institution. Ther...Read more
rst of all, I can definitely say that Fullstack provided me with everything, and more, to land a coding job and be a successful coder. A power-packed curriculum taught by brilliant profs, plus an extensive and innovative course on having great coding interviews, landed me a job very soon after graduation. But many other coding schools can teach you similar things. What sets Fullstack apart is the sheer personal attention and supportive, friendly environment they create. I'm still in touch with so many alumni and the team at the campus and everyone looks out for each other. It's not one of those schools that spits you out, lands you a job, and forgets you, in other words. You're always a part of it. If that's what you're looking for I highly recommend it.
