We begin by evaluating your current tech skills to figure out the best starting point in our coding program. If you're already familiar with JavaScript, you'll skip the intro course. Those assessed as ready may skip this phase completely.

Our program is hands-on and career-focused, designed to mirror a real tech environment. You'll engage in coding exercises, one-on-one mentoring, and collaborative group work, all aimed at solidifying your skills in essential technologies like JavaScript, TypeScript, React, Node.js, and MongoDB.

Our unique methodology has mentors and students acting as managers and coworkers, exchanging feedback and working together. This approach ensures you develop a strong, practical foundation to confidently tackle the industry's most sought-after skills.

Included in this phase

  • Full-stack development
  • Self-paced learning modules
  • Coding exercises
  • Regular 1-on-1 mentoring
  • Collaboration and feedback

Our principles - Forging new paths

We are determined to empower aspiring tech professionals by questioning conventional barriers and secrecy. Our approach is based on bold, unconventional principles.

  • Achievable. With the right plan, dedication, and our support, you can start a coding career in months, not years.
  • Streamlined. Most bootcamps are overpriced and overlong. We believe you only need key skills to get started.
  • Candid. Many industry truths go unspoken due to reputation concerns. We have open and honest conversations.
  • Empowering. Corporations have too much gatekeeping power over tech roles. We believe in empowering individuals.
  • Flexible. There are many paths into tech. We help you find the optimal learning style and pace.
  • Realistic. We provide a collaborative environment resembling real workplaces to prepare you for the industry.
