To become a successful web developer, one needs to possess a mix of soft and technical skills. 

Soft skills are essential to navigate the dynamic and fast-paced tech industry. These include being an independent learner, possessing excellent problem-solving skills, enjoying learning new things, and having excellent communication skills.
 
On the technical side, a web developer needs to be proficient in HTML, CSS, JavaScript and, Ruby, UX and UI. And have a strong understanding of web development frameworks, APIs, and databases.

With these skills, a web developer can build responsive and visually stunning websites, maintain and update existing ones, and continually improve their craft to stay relevant in the ever-evolving tech industry.


You need to be 18 to enroll for the course. However, you can apply if you are 17 as long as you turn 18 before the start of the bootcamp.

At the end of bootcamp, you will have a junior developer level. This means you will be able to quickly prototype your ideas by creating web applications on your own. For instance, you will know how to include authentication to your web application (simple signin/signup, or Facebook/WeChat connect), add an admin back-office, include payment features, automate e-mails sending, and much more. You will also know how to quickly deploy in production and you will have learned programming best practices used by the best tech companies. You will then have different options at the end of the course:

  • Find a developer job (front-end developer, back-end developer or full-stack developer)
  • Find a tech-related job (e.g. product manager, solution engineer, operations manager, customer success manager, etc.) in a startup or a tech company
  • Continue your entrepreneurial journey
  • Become a freelance web developer

Web development course
You don't need any technical background to join our web development bootcamp. We expect 3 things from our students: be (extremely) motivated, be curious, be social. If this sounds like you, then we'll be more than happy to have you on board if you pass all the selection process.

Data science & AI course
The Data science & AI course requires some basic knowledge of programming and mathematics.

  • How much programming do I need to know? Well, you must be comfortable with data types & variables, conditions, loops, functions and data structures like arrays and dictionaries (also called hashes in some programming languages). If you know those topics in other languages than Python (like Ruby, JavaScript, C++, etc.), you have the right programming prerequisites!
  • How much mathematics do I need to know? In order to join our Data Science course, you also need a minimum level in Mathematics and to be familiar with concepts covered in high school's scientific section. We need you to be comfortable with functions, their derivatives & systems of linear equations. To get up to speed, some additional preparation work will be given to you before the bootcamp start to get a refresh of all these concepts as well as more advanced knowledge on linear algebra and statistics.

Data analytics course
The data analytics bootcamp is beginner-friendly, with no prerequisites required. What counts for us is that you’re motivated to start your new tech journey.

You will learn some concepts behind mobile app development. Let’s be clear: you will not learn iOS, Android or Windows Phone development. We really think these skills cannot be taught (honestly) in a few weeks. We prefer teaching you the basics of programming and web development for many reasons. First, these are the core skills of a software engineer, even if you want to dive into mobile development later on. Second, the web is the open platform you need to understand. Thanks to Responsive Web Design (which is part of the program), you will be able to create apps that will display nicely on mobile devices. You will also learn to create APIs that will be used by your mobile apps. It will then be very easy for any mobile developers to code your iOS or Android interface starting from the API you’ve built.

In most cities, the bootcamp is taught in English.

In French cities, the program is in French. You will have a 1h30 lecture in the morning in French, and a 1h30 live-code in the evening in French as well. So, if you don't understand French correctly, you won't be able to attend the bootcamp in France.

In some other cities (São Paulo, Shanghai, Chengdu, Tokyo) specific sessions are organised in other languages (Brazilian Portuguese, Chinese, Japanese). You can check the language of the next batch on the "Apply" page.

Extra info: all the challenges' instructions and written documentation are in English, so all students must have a good level and understanding or written English, even in cities where lectures are given in another language.

You can join our web development bootcamp even if you don't have any technical background. 

We believe that anyone can learn to code as long as they possess three essential traits: a strong motivation, an inquisitive mind, and a sociable personality. 

If you fit this description, we would love to welcome you aboard, provided that you successfully pass our admissions process. Keep in mind that you need to be 18 minimum to enroll for the course.

To apply, simply complete the application form on our website by selecting:

  • The course
  • The format (full-time or part-time)
  • The city you're interested in
  • An introduction of why you want to join us and information about your personal project (if you have one!)

This is a quick process which only takes a few minutes. We will then contact you to schedule an interview (either in-person or online) to understand your motivations in more detail and answer any questions you have about our bootcamps.

Mastering programming basics and relational databases is essential before leaping into JavaScript. Unlike typical JavaScript courses, we emphasize relational databases, crucial in real-world contexts. Learn HTML, CSS, Ruby, and SQL to construct data-driven apps. This foundation empowers you to conquer challenges and craft interactive web experiences. Our hands-on approach, spanning HTML, CSS, Ruby, Rails, and JavaScript, ensures flexibility across technologies. Our focus on learning and adaptability equips you to confidently tackle new languages and frameworks.

AI revolutionizes web development by enhancing productivity and fostering creativity. It automates repetitive tasks, speeds up testing and deployment, and improves security, allowing developers to focus on more complex work. This not only accelerates the development process but also raises the quality of web applications.

Additionally, AI empowers developers to innovate and create new products and startups. While AI assists in design and prototyping, the expertise of developers is crucial for building these solutions. Thus, AI and human creativity together drive advancements in web development.
