Their regular programming bootcamps welcome n00bs of all ages (over 18) && backgrounds - graduates or not - as long as they are willing to fully and passionately commit to becoming professional - and happily employed - junior full-stack software developers within a very short period of time. Students are guided throughout the course by a team of instructors who have themselves formerly been pupils at the bootcamp. Their teaching methods are peculiar && their passion for clean code is only surpassed by their love for amazingly talented people that society has disregarded.

To apply to their regular courses, prospective students must complete an online computer science 101 course, submit an online form, go through an online JavaScript tutorial, excel in a JavaScript code challenge, and attend a workshop day that will be similar to the student experience during the bootcamp.

In each one of their campuses, different financing/sponsorship solutions are offered to help talented candidates that cannot advance the bootcamp's fee. Its specific terms and conditions are listed on their site's FAQs.
