About Elewa Bootcamps
At Elewa we remember learning to become developers, for some of us it wasn’t even a year ago! It felt like we spent more time finding what we needed to learn and where to learn those skills than we did actually learning them.
What we found difficult was tying it all together into a unified skill-set. With the great variety of opinions and resources it felt impossible to figure out what was most important, or what we should learn first.
We believe that no one should have to study alone, and that everyone should have access to quality, open learning materials. Our instructors have worked hard to embed their professional experience into the design & delivery of this curriculum, we hope this helps you reach your goals!

The true focus of our course is how to think in abstractions, construct solutions, identify separation of concerns, divide work for collaboration, use pseudocode and other visualizations … In short, how to use code effectively. Skills like these are usually taught after students have begun to master their language.
From our experience and research we have learned that these skills can, and should, be learned at the very beginning of your programming experience. Perhaps even before you master your programming language! The fundamental skills we cover in this curriculum can be learned effectively programmers of any skill level.
We’ve designed our projects to be as instructive as possible. The code for these projects is very simple, and this is intentional. It’s much easier to focus on, and learn, these collaborative skills when you aren’t also trying to understand complex code and new libraries. Keep this in mind and you’ll find that you can learn a lot from these projects, even if you’re no stranger to programming.

"Elewa Academy April 2018"
Elewa Academy was a great place to learn computer programming in a small group. The teacher was very helpful and diligently helped all the students to learn the course material. The course was intense and challenging for someone with total beginner programming... Read More
A big plus in this course was the small group. We had 5 people in April batch and the group size stays close to that #. Also, the open source curriculum, which means you can see the material beforehand. Recommended course!

"Elewa Academy (April 2018 edition)"
If you are looking for a bootcamp, which will not only learn you how to code, but also think like a future programmer, then Elewa Academy is the best option for you.
During the bootcamp I learned how to:
- approach problems from an abstract point of view
- visualise the problem and then to transform the visualisation to pseudo code
- construct solutions and to choose the best of them
- working with project restrictions and how to manage actual resources .
Those are things that are very important for someone who want to became a good developer.
The curriculum of the Elewa Academy is public so if you have to find out what you will learning during the bootcamp don't hesite and check it out.
