  • Duration: 11 weeks
Locations: Amsterdam
Course Description:

What you'll learn: During this 11-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 for teaching you technologies, tools, and approaches that development teams around the world are looking to implement.

These are the technologies & tools we teach: HTML5 & CSS3 Programming & Algorithms SQL Databases JavaScript & jQuery Test Driven Development Building APIs NodeJS and ES6/7 Syntax React with Redux Service Based Architecture Realtime Multiplayer Games with WebSockets Native iOS & Android Apps with React.

A typical remote learning day:

Recap
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 e-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. Just like in real life!

Requirements: Our current admissions process involves 3 short tests (basic JavaScript, logic, and English) and 1 interview (via Google Hangouts), which you'll have to pass to be accepted into our academy. During the interview, we will assess whether you are a fit for the Academy. No technical background is required. We believe that a strong motivation and dedication are the biggest drivers for success. We believe that by selecting ambitious students, the overall level of our students improves. 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 once you have applied via our website, we will find the best starting date for you based on availability and your preferences.

Subjects: CSS, HTML, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, NoSQL, Test-Driven Development (TDD), React.js, SQL, Node.js, iOS, JavaScript, Android

"Join Codaisseur at your own risk."

I focused on wiping out the dreadful experience at Codaisseur from my mind when I received the email from the staff asking for good reviews in exchange for merchandise. Seriously desperate? Nothing good comes out of a bad structure. Class after class... Read More

"Overall it was a good experience."

Overall my experience was pretty good. The curriculum is geared towards having students be able to create a full stack web application at the end of the bootcamp. It works for most people and even though the pace is fast, it is manageable. The teachers... Read More

"Codaisseur emailed me, requesting me to write reviews for them. So, here is my personal experience."

When I received the email from Codaisseur asking us to write them a review, I was surprised. Why would a school ask their former students to write reviews for them? Their reason: they lost students because of bad reviews on Switchup. When I looked, scrolling... Read More
