Avg Rating:4.93 ( 241 reviews )

Founded in Portugal in 2015, <Academia de Código_> is a social impact startup that offers 14-week intensive and immersive Full Stack Programming Bootcamps. Students are guided through the course by a team of instructors who are graduates of the bootcamp. <Academia de Código_> describes their teaching methods as "peculiar" and aimed at training students to write clean code.

<Academia de Código_>'s immersive programming bootcamps welcome beginners of all ages (over 18) and backgrounds (degree not needed) as long as they are willing to fully and passionately commit to becoming professional junior software developers within a short period of time. To apply to the bootcamps, prospective students must complete an online computer science 101 course, submit an online form, complete an online JavaScript tutorial, excel in a JavaScript code challenge, and attend online a workshop day that will be similar to the student experience during the bootcamp. 

At each campus, different financing/sponsorship solutions are available to help candidates finance the bootcamp. Terms and conditions are listed on the <Academia de Código_> website.

      A/C packs in a lot of content within 14 weeks, this means that there is are a lot of subjects to go through in a short amount of time, leading to the experience being exhaustive. However, A/C does cover everything you'll need to know to get started. No, you won't master anything - yet - 14 weeks isn't enough time to master one framework, let alone two languages, different paradigms within said languages and a whole bunch of frameworks. That being said, it's exactly the right amount to start a new career, because the resilience needed, the knowledge gained and the technical and inter-personal skills that are worked on along the bootcamp are more than enough to become a solid developer, which is the basis required for future growth. Learning is a process and A/C sets you up with everything you need for success.

      In short, it's worth it if you can tough it out. The staff is amazing (both teaching and support staff) and careers are easily launched from there. Go for it.

      A brutal experience....with all the meanings associated with this word...
      Academia de código taught me everything I needed to know to became a programmer. They taught me how to think like one, how to talk like one and how to face challenges like one...
      There were hard and painful times...but then again, growing always is. I am very grateful to be part of such a special group of people and for the time I spent learning to code.
      Investments in knowledge always pays the best interests....And I am very happy I've invested with them.

      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.

      In 14 weeks, from not knowing a single line of work to a fully prepared full stack dev.
      They promise and they deliever. Of course, you need to put in time, hard work and a good ammout of patience.
      But if you are willing to you'll never forget your experience at the Academy.
      I started working 2 weeks after the bootcamp, and I felt fully prepared when I start working.

      Everything you read is true. This does change your life,

    Thanks!
