Hands-on Approach

Learn by doing

A Life of Learning

Full of challenges

When you join our program, you will immediately experience that the courses are very intensive. There is a lot to cover in just 10 weeks and the only way to learn everything is by doing. We are very aware of that. Hour-long lectures are not part of this course. Instead, we mix short lectures with exercises.

Continuously challenging you to find things out on your own before we show you our solution forms you into a well-equipped developer. Even after graduation, your life will be filled with learning, and that will never go away. Technology is always in flux, and the best gift we can present you with during this course is that of excellent learning skills.

Professionalism & Agile Workflow

The other gift is professionalism. Working as a developer on a team demands fine-grained communication skills, and knowledge of the right tooling and processes. Our teachers come from a long history of managing development and product teams. The companies our graduates work for often benefit from the processes and collaboration skills you will learn, giving you that nice edge that makes you valuable to hire. But there's more!

  • Planning
  • Wireframing
  • Data Modeling
  • Testing
  • Code Reviews
  • Continuous Integration
  • Daily Standups

Cutting-Edge Technologies

The latest and greatest

Skills you acquire

Proficient in complete stacks

This is where you as a fresh developer in a new job at a new company will benefit most. 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.

During this 10 week intensive program, you will learn to build complex websites and even multiplayer games with databases, APIs, and modern front-end technology. Our curriculum is based entirely on Full Stack JavaScript. Furthermore, your project workflow includes code reviews and quality assessments, standard practices such as TDD, basics of product development, UX design, Domain modeling and team collaboration using standard tools like Atom, Git, Github, CI, and Slack.

Student Testimonials

Iris Bunewas a student

After taking the DIY approach for some time, learning PHP, I got the opportunity to enroll in a 5-week Web Developer Bootcamp at a really cool company in Amsterdam: Codaisseur. I finally had the chance to focus on what I really loved without distractions. For an entire month, it was a 10+ hour rollercoaster for 5 days (sometimes even 7) a week. I loved every second of it! It was not easy to learn how to code on my own but needless to say, this bootcamp was a dream come true. The best part of it all, I found an awesome job within a month after f...

Katarzyna Cabońwas a student

Really liked the academy - teachers are competent and ready to answer any question, program is extensive and covers the latest on web development. Without the course I wouldn't be able to achieve and learn so much in such a short time.

Jiri Swenwas a student

It has brought me a lot in terms of realising my own power as a developer. Not only do I now feel comfortable with the technologies we were taught as well as learning other webdev technologies that have a similar structure, but I feel as though I can get into / start any programming project and 'will figure out how to do this with enough Googling' etc (rather than facing a massive wall of 'not knowing what to do next'). Apart from this skills like coding in a team and applying for work have also been really valuable to me as this was my first e...
