How does it work

Forget everything you know about training, we have developed a unique, highly effective way to get people coding.

  • We create an Outline outlining what technologies you need to learn to become a Full Stack Developer
  • There are no classes or lectures, just coding (we know this is scary, but our instructors know how to get you started even if you have never coded before)
  • You come up with projects you want to build
  • You build projects to learn how to code, and the projects follow the languages you are learning. First languages you will likely learn are HTML, CSS & JS, this means that the first project you will build will use these languages.
  • Our instructors guide you and give you feedback on your code
  • You work with a number of different instructors to connect and learn from multiple people from the industry
  • You build up an impressive portfolio of fully built out projects
  • We help you preparing for your job search
  • It takes between 6-12 months, depending how quickly learn and how much time you commit.

Examples of previous talks: "Day in life of a Verafin Software Developer", "How it works at Mysa" or "Intro to Blockchain and Cryptocurrencies".

Frequently Asked Questions.

Can't find what you are looking for? Try these FAQs or Schedule a free consultation.

What am I actually paying for?

You are mainly paying for the 1-on-1 coaching session, during which we provide you with code review, industry insights, and direction to complement your training. We also curate the resources we think will get you to your goals quicker and provide you with 24/7 troubleshooting for when you get stuck.

What technical knowledge is required to join the program?

Nothing really. Curiosity for technology and being comfortable with your computer and browser.

How big of a commitment is this?

We believe you need to dedicate at least 15 hours a week to practicing to see results. You can stop at any time. There is no long-term commitment.

Do you offer a certificate for completing the course?

We do not believe certificates are a good measure of technical skills. You shouldn't either. Instead, we focus on you building a real portfolio of live projects that "wow" others.

How does the payment work?

You can learn more about how payment works on this page.

What if I pay upfront and need to withdraw from the program?

We want to provide an accessible education, so if your situation changes we are happy to provide a refund. The refund is calculated by taking your initial upfront payment and then taking away the number of attended sessions multiplied by$250.

So let's say you paid $6,000 upfront and want to withdraw after having 4 sessions (about 1 month in), you would receive a refund of $5,000.

Have a different question?

Schedule a time with us here and there we can answer any questions or explain how the program works more in depth.
