Read More a regular 14-week intensive && immersive full-time full-stack programming bootcamps in 4 different campus within the Portuguese territory (Lisbon, Oporto, Fundão && Terceira Island).
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.
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.
Develop a full-stack programmer's mindset that will allow you to switch freely between back-end && front-end like a bo$$. Use the freshest production techniques in software development, in a uniquely creative and disruptive environment that is both highly stimulating and uncannily informal. Become fluent in programming best practices as you boost your mad development skills using the coolest frameworks available to mankind. And, above all, learn to learn! (Which is, basically, the most useful skill that can ever be taught to a programmer!)
After 7 years as a digital Marketing consultant, I felt a strong need to change my path. Academia de Código allowed me to do that. A strong body of instructors allied with a great go-get atitude was what I was needing to pursue a career as a programmer....

I'm glad to make part of Academia de Código bootcamp! It was one of the best experiencies of my life!!! Everyone turn it like a game, a game that it is interesting to play! It is amazing how you can turn a noob in a good programmer, in 14 weeks... tears... Read More and blood... but proud of it!!! Thank you!
A friend of mine knew I wanted to learn to program and kept telling me about Academia de Código and how I should enroll. I resisted for some time and eventually I gave in. For the next 14 weeks it was more than I dreamed, and I kept saying for anyone... Read More who asked (still do) it was the best decision I ever made. If anyone likes to program and just wants to learn how to, this is it. Not only will you absolutely will understand programming and how to learn any programming language, you will be able to do it in any circumstances, in any team, solo, remote and you won't be afraid of any challange. Trough these intense weeks, as it is natural in an enviorment where so many people have the same goal, I made amazing friends, found new gurus and had a change in my life for the better. If you want in, first step is to complete the n01r challenge, if programming is what you love, go for it.

The course is very immersive and intensive. For every1 that is looking for an opportunity in coding, this is the perect match for you! keep in mind before diving into this, make sure you love programming, because you will only eat, breath and sleep with... Read More this. The course is amazing, you get full support during and after the bootcamp with very professional people. Is a bit expensive, however 99% of the times, you got a job in the end of the bootcamp.
A/C packs in a lot of content within 14 weeks, this means that there is are a lot of subjects to go through in a short amount of time, leading to the experience being exhaustive. However, A/C does cover everything you'll need to know to get started. No,... Read More you won't master anything - yet - 14 weeks isn't enough time to master one framework, let alone two languages, different paradigms within said languages and a whole bunch of frameworks. That being said, it's exactly the right amount to start a new career, because the resilience needed, the knowledge gained and the technical and inter-personal skills that are worked on along the bootcamp are more than enough to become a solid developer, which is the basis required for future growth. Learning is a process and A/C sets you up with everything you need for success. In short, it's worth it if you can tough it out. The staff is amazing (both teaching and support staff) and careers are easily launched from there. Go for it.

Thank you for changing my life!
