Over the past few months we talked to about 100 candidates who were interested in our bootcamps and found six concerns that were repeated over and over again

Do you identify with any of these?


"I don't know if I'll be any good at programming."
"I'm very interested, but I don't know if I'll actually like it, once I start doing it."
"I can't just quit my job and do a 3 month programming bootcamp"
"I really want to learn to code, but it's so overwhelming, I don't know where to start"
"I bought an online course and I thought I was doing great while watching the videos, but when I tried to do an exercise I had so many questions and no one to ask for help."
"I want to do it, but I only want to study frontend development, I don't need to learn about Python and databases."

We created an online, part-time, mentor-led course, split in smaller (and cheaper) modules you can sign up for separately, choosing the one that you're most interested in.

What will I learn?

We'll teach you the full skill set for creating a static website and putting it online for the world to see. If you follow the lessons properly, do the homework and participate on the hackathons - you will be able to take on small projects for clients and create beautiful and simple websites for them, with that making the course pay for itself (and much more).

How does it work?

Online lessons

During the week the instructors will be streaming live lessons that will be later be made available as videos to all students.

Exercises

Every lesson will have one or more exercises you will need to solve. We will have one hour of "open office" hours where the instructors will be available online to answer any question you might have related to the material.

Projects

In the beginning of the course you will be split up in teams and you'll keep on working together until the end of the course.

Every team will receive the design of a website they'll need to make and put online by the end of the course. All the teams will get together every Saturday of the 3 weeks during the course and work on their project.

The instructors will be available during the whole hackathon for video calls and some pair programming.

This is where you will learn the most, so make sure you come armed with questions!

Deploying your website

The third and last hackathon will culminate with you deploying your project online. Congratulations! :)
