The Program
01
40-60
Hours

Trainees work intensively full-time for 40-60 hours per week to complete the work schedule. This full-immersion forces you to rapidly adopt a developer's mindset and increases your learning - ultimately helping you get hired.

02
All Ability
Levels

Our content program is suitable for all abilities - from zero to advanced coding experience. We will teach you everything from the basics of web development to the most advanced workflow techniques used at modern technology firms.

03
Career
Oriented

Our rigorous curriculum focuses on real-world and career-oriented skills so that when you complete the program you will be equipped with the techniques and tools needed to seamlessly fit into a dev team at a technology firm.

04
Code
Reviews

We believe that the best way to learn is through code reviews. All trainee project work is code reviewed. Having code review feedback mechanisms for real-world work is vital to accelerate learning in the second half of the program as we prepare you for being hired by top-tier employers.

05
Project
Work

We believe that self-initiated project work is fundamental to becoming a master developer. This means hours of screen time and hard work. Our platform provides structure and feedback mechanisms for you to rapidly improve your skills.

Our Mission

We believe that the internet has fundamentally changed how students can learn. Content is free but living is not. Instead of paying teachers we are paying the trainees to get through our learning content and help each other in the process.


We believe that money should never be a barrier to learning and that with the right motivation and funding, anyone can learn new skills and make a better life for themselves.
