Australia-based Polycademy is an academy for web application entrepreneurship. We turn ideas into reality. We help aspiring tech entrepreneurs and people looking to change their career, to build their dream app by teaching them how to do it in 11 or 21 weeks.
We’re the first organisation in Australia that provides full stack education from web design, front end development to back end development. We also help integrate the students with mentors in business and software development fields.
Students in Polycademy don’t come out with a certificate, but with an actual live usable product. You are meant to have an idea for something you want to build, and our courses are catered towards this kind of purposeful...Read more
|Description||The 11 weeks express involves of 15 hours per week instruction time plus 6 hours per week free time. That equals 231 hours of value. The class size is limited to 15 students and we recommend you to get into a team of 2 or 3. During after hours, the classroom will be open for you to chill out and meet the other students. Our three philosophies at Polycademy is Minimum Viable Product (MVP), Agile Development and Flipped Classroom. MVP means designing your product so it is minimum enough to launch quickly to get market testing, and viable enough to make your product distinct from competitors. Agile Development is about rapid and flexible incremental iteration to code. Rather than memorising the whole corpus of programming in 11 weeks, each week is a milestone in which parts of your product will be deployed. Flipped Classroom means that before class an online ecosystem of materials will be provided to you. During class we'll keep it practical by spending time discussing models, cutting code, and deploying applications to the cloud. We'll be arranging your team with a mentor who will volunteer their time to coach your team on the entrepenurial or development process. At the end of 11 weeks, a careers/pitching fair will be opened. Tech employers and investors will be invited to check out your work. If you are from overseas, an Australian tourist visa will give you enough time to stay in Canberra to complete the 11 week course. The student visa is not suitable for Polycademy.|
