Our teaching approach
What we teach
Aside from technology, our students learn how to think like a programmer by solving problems and work in teams. These fundamental skills prepare our students for their first jobs as web developers.
Our curriculum is an open-source project. It is continuously updated and adapted to the latest cutting-edge technologies. Anybody - teachers, students, or a random contributor - can open an issue or pull request to suggest improvements.
Who are our teachers
All our teachers are skilled developers, with multiple years of experience. They teach in their free time on weekends and in evenings. Our teachers work for a range of companies, from start-ups to major corporations.
We like to refer to our volunteers as 'mentors’, as they provide support, guidance, and advice to our students in addition to technical expertise.
What it means to be a teacher
Most of our teachers commit to teaching in-person for four hours each Sunday. Our curriculum is organised into modules (topics) of three weeks each. Teachers are typically assigned to teach a module in pairs, as well as providing feedback on students’ homework. During the week students receive online support, with over 40 skilled developers on stand-by.
