Starting from the absolute zero, we guide you step-by-step and our only assumption is that you're a complete beginner with a determination to break into the tech world.
Two weekly video calls with your mentor where you can clear out any questions you have about your homework or the material in general. They're amazing for inspirational career advice too.
On weekends we hold hackathons where all teams and their mentors get together online and work on a real-life project, as a real-life distributed team. Getting ready for remote jobs y'all.
A buzzing Slack or the more informal Facebook group. Whatever your preference of a channel is, you can ask your questions, share your struggles or your wins with the UmaHub family and be sure to get support.
We'll teach you the full skill set for creating a modern 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).
In the "CasualCoder" and "Apprentice" program you can study in your own time. Our intensive "DeterminedStudent" program, on the other hand, lasts for 3 weeks and you would need to dedicate an average of 1 to 2 hours per day during the week plus 3-5 hours for the hackathons on weekends.
During the week mentors will be releasing video lessons covering new concepts in a fun, beginner-friendly and easy-to-follow way.
Every lesson has one or more exercises you will need to solve and send to your mentor as homework.
We're strong believers that soft skills nowadays are just as important as the tech skills. That's why we made sure to include lessons on career development and work in remote teams.
Open office hours with mentors are held twice a week. During that time they're available online to answer any question you might have related to the material.
Every weekend the class gets split in teams of 3 and they work on a project together with their assigned instructor in remote pair programming sessions.
Pair programming is not easy even for experienced developers, but if you start doing it early, if you learn the basics of positive communication, you will be a much more desired team-member in any team.
And doing all this remotely adds yet one more level of complexity, but we still achieve to make it enjoyable for our students, by giving them a solid training beforehand.
These sessions are very close to real-life work and it's where you will learn the most, so make sure you come armed with questions!
