What you'll learn: During this 9-week intensive program, you will learn to build complex websites and even multiplayer games with databases, APIs, and modern front-end technology. We teach you the latest and greatest technologies most senior developers have not even worked with yet – or at least not as intensively as you will. We aim to teach you technologies, tools, and approaches that development teams around the world are looking to implement.
A typical learning day (Online platforms added for remote learners):
Refreshing the knowledge you gathered the day before, so that you can start the day all pumped
Check-in (Zoom or Discord)
Taking attendance and starting the day together
Live coding session (Zoom)
This is where you go through what you will learn that day. We believe in learning by doing, but you need to be familiar with the concepts first, this is what you will have during the live coding sessions. We don’t send you out to the wild world of coding without any previous support.
Learning by doing (Reader)
After the session, it is your time to learn by processing through our reader. Don’t worry, we don’t let your hands go here either. Our reader contains little instructional videos as well and our teachers will be available to jump in and help.
When you get stuck (Slack/Discord)
No need to worry about this either, because if you feel like you have a unique problem that you cannot seem to solve, you can always have a call with one of the teachers, share the screen and find and get rid of those nasty bugs together.
Group projects (Discord/Slack)
The learning by doing does not stop at your own screen. We believe in the huge added value of group projects and that is why you will have to cooperate in some weeks. We will assign you a group of 2-3 classmates and you will have to develop a cool app together. Teachers are available to help the whole time, but you can learn so much from each other that we do not want to take that chance from anyone.
During the whole day (Discord)
As expressed many times, we know that providing the proper channel for asking questions any time is vital. Therefore the teacher of the day will be available the whole day to answer your questions and you will even get a chance to listen in on what your classmates are asking.
Requirements: Our Academy starts with the one-week Admissions Training Camp. No technical background is required to join. At the end of the week, you'll be evaluated on your motivation, progress and technical skills to determine if you continue in the No Cure - No Pay or Pay Upfront model. We believe that a strong motivation and dedication are the biggest drivers for success. The Admissions Training Camp is a good indicator of how you’ll perform for the rest of the Academy. All of our classes are taught in English. You should be able to effortlessly participate in both technical and non-technical discussions and read and understand technical materials.
When can you apply: Anytime! A new class starts every 3 weeks, so when you apply via our website, you can choose the best starting date for you based on your availability and preferences.
