      If you want to change your life and become a developer, this is the way to go.
      They really teach us a lot in those 14 weeks. Of course we don't learn everything there is to know, but they teach us the general concepts and also how to learn for ourselves.
    • Great Experince!

      This Bootcamp is the best, I not only learned how to program but I also understood the meaning of a family in a big group of different people. It gave me a lot of confidence to go find a job and they also give all the support on that part. And besides being a school, they are not a classical school, they are different, creative in all ways of teaching and they don't leave anyone behind, the teachers are amazing and all the staff. I can say it was the best and hardest experience of my life. The best "fast-learning" school in Portugal. 100% recommend it!

      Academia de Código is a big family thanks to their amazing team of instructors and their willingness to change people's lives. The best code teachers out there are all here. They make every subject fun and interesting and that's why I believe they are the best programming school in Portugal. I had misgivings before starting the bootcamp and it turned out to be the best decision of my life.  I got a job right away when I finished.

      The best 14 weeks where you live and breathe code. They help you earn softskils and put you in touch with companies to find work. It was spectacular one of my best experiences.

      I was skeptical about <A/C_> when I first heard of it. The more I looked, the more I got convinced it was the thing to do, but once I got there all my expectations were exceeded. Expecting it to be some boring classes like every other course I had taken, it is the polar opposite. You learn by having fun, when you make a question the answer is not immediate, you're pushed to think for yourself and find it. Apply your new learned skills in small projects every week, and then learn to work as a team with bigger creative projects and a final 24 hour hackathon, which will be unforgettable.

      Fourteen weeks that will change your life!

      When you decide to give a try do do this,  you have to get in mind that you are betting "14week of your life" for a WIN.
      My advice, enjoy everyday in bootcamp, it will be "f***ing" hard for everyone. Don't worry to be beind the others, worry about enjoy the everyday's learning.

Best of all, after these 14 weeks at <Academia de Código_>, you will be 100% ready to be placed in a well payed job doing what you love to do, code! 
      Thank you for the memories, friends and for giving me a chance.

      "I will never forget "

      I will never forget the family that changed my life.

      I am eternally grateful to this School. They taught me to code, but they also taught me to learn.

      Applying for this bootcamp was the best decision I ever made and my life has improved so much from this.

      I went from being a military with no prospect and no plans for the future to being employed at an awesome IT company. 

      I think everyone should do this bootcamp!

      For those interested in programming and looking for a change in their lives, this is the right opportunity. It will be tough and challenging, but hey, nothing that's easy in life would be really worth it in the end.
      You'll learn more than you think, make friendships for life and get a new perspective about the future.
      Even after the end of the bootcamp, the given support until you get a job is amazing. You'll never be alone.

    Thanks!
