Overview

During the 11-week academy, you will become a professional in modern web development.

We offer a broad curriculum where you will learn all about HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Databases, Security, APIs, and how to build cutting-edge web applications using popular frameworks and libraries. Our academy aims to ensure that you will be hired as a junior developer within 3 months of graduation. In the unlikely case that you are not hired within this timeframe, we waive your tuition fee.

All you have to do is pay an admission fee of €800 and your future employer will pay the tuition fee of €11520. Previous technical experience is not needed to join the academy. However, applicants must pass a technical exam and an interview to be accepted.

Start Dates & Costs

Our payment plan is very simple.

Every student pays the admission fee of €800. The remainder of your education costs (€11.520) will be paid by the company that hires you. After graduating from our 11-week course, you'll have a 3-month job search period. You will choose where you want - and don’t want - to work and you will be hired by these companies directly. If you are not hired within these 3 months, then we will waive the cost of your tuition fee.

Scholarships

Every year, we offer 53 students a scholarship.

Codaisseur is a proud partner of the Start&Code Program founded by INCO in 2015. The program is financially supported by the JP Morgan Chase Foundation.

In 2019, INCO Academy made 53 scholarships available to students with a non-conventional background. Each scholarship covered the admission fee.

Once accepted into the Codaisseur Academy, candidates are automatically considered for the scholarship if they qualify.

Requirements

No technical background needed!

Our admissions process involves an exam and an interview (face to face or via Skype when you live abroad) that you'll have to pass to be accepted into our academy. During the interview, we will assess whether you are a fit for the Academy.

No technical background is required. We believe that a strong motivation and dedication are the biggest drivers for success and that by selecting ambitious students, the overall level of our academy improves.

All of our classes are taught in English. You should be able to effortlessly participate in both technical and non-technical conversations and read and understand technical materials.

Dutch proficiency is nice to have, but not required.

What You’ll Learn

During this 11-week intensive program, you will learn to build complex websites and even multiplayer games with databases, APIs, and modern front-end technology.

We teach you the latest and greatest technologies most senior developers have not even worked with yet – or at least not as intensively as you will during the academy. We aim to teach you technologies, tools, and approaches that development teams around the world are looking to implement, but sometimes might just lack experience or capacity for. As a new developer on the team, you will bring both these things to the table.

These are the technologies & tools we teach:

HTML5 & CSS3

HTML brings structure to the content of a web page, while CSS brings styling. We cover all the latest of HTML5 and CSS3, including building responsive pages and flexbox.

Programming & Algorithms

Learn to write code by describing data structures and work with them using functions, recursion, and by controlling the flow of your program.

SQL Databases

Learn to store, organize, retrieve, and aggregate data from the most advanced types of relational databases used in the industry.

JavaScript & jQuery

One of the most popular programming languages around will become second nature to you during this course. JS allows you to write client-side code that can be run by web browsers.

Test Driven Development

Learn to write code to automate testing your code. This helps speed up your development. Professional codebases are fully tested, allowing for rapid feature development and refactoring without having to worry about unexpectedly breaking things.

Building APIs

APIs play a big role in web development. Providing programmatic interfaces to applications allows for communication between them.

NodeJS and ES6/7 Syntax

NodeJS is becoming very popular in web development because it allows us to write JavaScript on the server side. The ES6 and ES7 syntaxes breathe new life into this old, quirky language, making it fun and efficient to work with.

React with Redux

React allows us to build next-generation web applications. Advanced single-page front-end applications are in high demand these days and you will learn how to build them, as well as manage the data flow with Redux.

Service Based Architecture

Build clusters of small API services to serve as a back-end for your React applications. Learn to manage data and flow with hooks and middlewares.

Realtime Multiplayer Games with WebSockets

Realtime web applications allow us to build intuitive applications, advanced functionality, and... multiplayer games!

Native iOS & Android Apps with React

Web development? What about App development? Learn to use your React skills to build not only web apps, but (native) mobile apps as well!

Example Projects

OHMMMM

OHMMMM

"Meditation and kids might not sound like a match made in heaven. Kids between the ages of ten to fourteen lead busy and active lives, it’s a time of fast transition and emotional & cognitive development. Where can they get some rest and some quiet time with all of that buzzing? Ohmmmm is a game that makes meditation fun and engages kids to slow down and relax."

Real World Project

Typical Day

A typical day at Codaisseur will look something like this:

Our classes begin every day (Mon - Fri) at 9.30, but most students will arrive a little earlier and grab some coffee to get the day started. At 9.30, your teacher will give you a little warm-up exercise, followed by a brief recap at 9.45, after which they'll introduce the topic for the rest of the day. From 10.00, you'll be working on exercises and your teacher will give some short lectures here and there. At 12.30, it's time for a much needed break: lunch time! Class resumes at 13.30, usually with a short lecture, after which you can work on a project. Then at 16.00, you'll begin preparing for tomorrow and when 18.00 rolls around, it's usually time to head home.

We always make sure to have plenty of coffee ready ☕️

FAQs

Is the Academy Program graded?

Not in the traditional sense. Whilst group work and collaboration are fundamental aspects of the program, you are evaluated throughout the Academy by way of individual assignments. These individual assignments help us to assess how well you are grasping the material being taught.

Throughout the Academy Program, you will be evaluated no less than two (2) times:

An interim evaluation will be conducted within the first half of the Academy program. If your level and/or progress in the opinion of the teacher is insufficient or seriously lagging compared to the rest of the class, you will be informed, with further discussion regarding points to improve on. Should a subsequent evaluation determine no or unsatisfactory improvement, this may be grounds for removal from the Academy Program.

In week seven (7), there will be a final evaluation to assess your overall results in the Academy Program. Results from the evaluation will determine if you graduate from the program.

Any time after the interim evaluation and before the final evaluation, we may run spot evaluations if we have concerns about your progress.

When do you need to pay the admission fee?

As soon as you sign your contract, you will receive an invoice for the €800 admission fee. This fee is paid in principle by the Student, unless covered otherwise (e.g. through our scholarship program). The admission fee is due within 14 days of signing the training contract or before your respective Academy starting date (whichever date comes first).

How do I apply?

First things first, you need to actually sign up, basically create an account on the Codaisseur website. Use a regular email/password combination and confirm your account via email. Note that you can abandon the enrolment process at any time, no strings attached.

What salary can I expect?

Salaries for your first contract range on average between €2,300 and €2,400 bruto. On top of that, your employer(s) pays off your training directly to Codaisseur. In situations where the employer is not paying for your training, the average salary is between €2,500 and €2,600 bruto.
