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.

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
