intense, but interesting
Every student pays the admission fee of €800. The remainder of your education cost (€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 work for these companies directly. If you are not hired within these 3 months, then we will bear the cost of your tuition fee.

Codaisseur is a proud partner of the Start&Code Program. Start&Code was founded by INCO in 2015. The program is financially supported by the JP Morgan Chase Foundation.
In 2019 INCO Academy will make scholarships available for 53 people with a non-conventional background. Each scholarship will cover €600,- of your admission fee.
Once accepted into the Codaisseur Academy, candidates are automatically considered for the scholarship if they qualify.
Our admissions process involves 2 technical exams and 1 interview (face to face or via Skype when you live abroad), which you'll have to pass to be accepted to our academy.
We believe that age should not be a determining factor in the application process. But we rely on future employers to recover your tuition fee (job guarantee). Therefore we do not consider applicants under 18 or over 50 for the Academy. The average age of our students is 30.
All of our classes are taught in English. You should be able to converse effortlessly in both technical and non-technical discussions, and read and understand technical materials.
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. We aim for teaching you technologies, tools, and approaches that development teams around the world are looking to implement. They just lack experience or capacity there. As a new developer on the team, you will bring in both. 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.
Learn to store, organize, retrieve, and aggregate data from the most advanced types of relational databases used in this industry.
One of the most popular programming languages around will be your 2nd language 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 you speed up your development. Professional code bases are fully tested, allowing for rapid feature development and refactoring without having to worry about breaking things unexpectedly.
APIs play a big role in the web development industry. Providing programmatic interfaces to applications allows communication between them.
NodeJS and ES6/7 Syntax
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!
Our classes begin every day at 9.30, 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 to get the day started. At 9.45 the teacher will give you a brief recap, and introduce the topic for the rest of the day. From 10.00 you'll be working on exercises and receiving short lectures from your teacher. 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 short project. Then at 16.00 you'll begin preparing for tomorrow, and, when 18.00 rolls around it's usually time to head home.
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 based on the objects we've outlined.
Throughout the duration of 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 development 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 but not before the first seven (7) days of training.
In week seven (7) there will be a final evaluation to assess your overall result in the Academy Program. Results from the evaluation will determine if you will 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.
By when do you need to pay the admission fee?
As soon as you sign your contract you will receive an invoice for the admission fee. The admission fee for the Coding Academy is €800,-. The admission fee is paid, in principle, by the Student, unless your admission fee is covered otherwise (e.g. through our scholarship program). The admission fee is due within 14 days of signing this offer or before the Academy starting date (whichever date comes first).
How do I apply?
First things first, you need to actually sign up, create an account. You can use your LinkedIn account or a regular email/password combination. Note that you can abandon the enrolment process at any time, no strings attached.
What are my responsibilities as a graduate during the job application stage?
During the job application phase you will be expected to spend eight (8) hours at Codaisseur and apply for a minimum four (4) position per week. The positions in which you apply for must correspond to the capabilities of a junior web developer.
