By the end of the course you will have junior level programming skills (in C# or Java). In the third module of the course you can specialize in the following areas.
There is a huge demand for programmers both nationally and globally due to the enormous technological advancements of recent decades. Also, coding is becoming more and more of an essential skill, like speaking English. We suppose that anyone can learn to code, and the most dedicated can get to a level in only a couple of months, with which they can land a more than well-paid job.
Our goal at Green Fox is to create an environment that is similar to the one, in which you will find yourself when you start to work afterward. So our teaching methodology focuses on solving challenges. Our students work on tasks in the first half of the course, and on the development of complex projects in the second half.
Work takes place within a mentoring framework. In practice, this means that only 10 % of the time is taken up by lectures. The remaining 90% consists of individual and group-work, led by mentors.
We apply the blended classroom methodology, meaning traditional classroom techniques are mixed with digital solutions. There are video-based materials that are to be processed individually by the students, followed by mentor supported individual and group-work.
Participation in the course requires no conventional preliminary qualifications. One thing you must have, though, is knowledge of English language. This is important, as the study materials are in English. No proof of having passed a relevant language exam will be required.
Although not required, it will be to your advantage during the admission process if you can prove you have a degree of any kind, have tried coding, or have participated in any online course.
If you choose on-campus course, it takes place on our premises at Václavské náměstí 11, Praha 1. In case of the online class you can join from anywhere, where is a stable internet connection.
After graduation, we will help you find a job. Green Fox students go through the same selection process as any other candidate for junior programmer positions. Until starting your new job you will deepen your coding knowledge for a further 10 weeks through working at our co-working space, Húli.
We believe that the knowledge you will acquire in our course is job-ready and to prove this to you we offer a Placement guarantee: if you cannot find a job in IT within 6 months after successful graduation, we will refund you the full amount of your tuition (or waive it if you chose post-payment). Please find more details in the student contract.
You will receive a certificate issued by Green Fox Academy, confirming that you have completed the course and passed the final exam.
Please note: the course is not a state-accredited educational course, and therefore we are not allowed to issue an accredited diploma. We believe that the true value of the skills you will acquire at Green Fox Academy is proven by the fact that many of our students are hired just a few weeks after they graduate.
Students who successfully complete the course will be helped by our recruitment team to find employment as soon as possible, but please bear in mind that finding a job could take several months.
Feel free to find and take up employment anywhere, however you are only allowed to accept job offers from Green Fox Academy's hiring partners through us. Our partners offer a gross salary of at least 35 000 CZK per month.
This module will help you learn the basics of C# or Java. Java is one of the most popular languages in the world. All of the exercises and materials are based on this language. It provides a strong foundation for Java back-end or Android development late on, although it is possible to switch to any other technologies.
Foundation module in C# provides a strong base for .NET back-end, as well as desktop and mobile developments on Microsoft platforms. However, it is also possible to subsequently switch to any other technologies.
Spring, one of the most popular web frameworks in the Java realm, will help you learn the basics of building back-end applications that run on a server. It's a good foundation for learning about back-end development, Android development and DevOps. At the end of the module, the participant should be capable of creating an interactive web application that can be connected to a database.
The .NET framework in C# will help you learn the basics of building back-end applications that run on a server. It's a good foundation for learning about back-end development and DevOps. At the end of the module, the participant should be capable of creating an interactive web application that is connected to a database.
These projects are strictly back-end applications, written in C# or Java.
"For me joining Húli was the best way to get prepared for a real work environment as a future developer. I've learned a lot from the received feedback and it helped me to improve task by task. This experience was a big advantage at job interviews too. They were really interested in our Húli workflow and the way I managed my time during sprints. It was a big plus that we worked on a big code base and got a sneak preview on how things are on a real world project."
What is in it for you?
There are multiple benefits, including:
Is there a deadline to join?
You can join any time after you graduate, so it's fine to go on a week or two vacation before you start working in Húli.
What is expected from you?
You have the following responsibilities if you decide to join Húli:
Can I work from home?
Yes! You can work remotely, but you must still be available on Slack and must be able to join the meetings online.
Can I join a project with a different technology than I learned previously?
Yes! You're welcome in any project with any technological background.
No traditional entry prerequisites are required to participate in the course. But one thing you have to know is English. This is very important during the course, as the study plan is in English. No language test is required. Apply even if you are not fully sure of your language skills. We will tell you during the selection process, if your English is sufficient or not.
Although this is not a prerequisite, the advantage during the admission process can be:
- if you find all important information about the course you are applying for,
- if you have ever tried to program or you have attended a programming course.
The whole selection process will take about 2 weeks. It depends on your time possibilities and the currently free capacity for the interview/simulation.
If you are ready to change your life, submit your application!
The first thing you will need to do is to simply submit your CV.
The next step in the selection process is to complete an online cognitive test. All you need is a good internet connection, a computer, and a convenient place for concentration. All instructions will come in the email. The test itself takes up to 20 minutes.
Within a few days, you will receive an invitation for a video interview or an interview in person. The interview part is focused on your English language and presentation skills. The video interview is an option when meeting in person is not possible in the upcoming days. It takes approximately 10 minutes in front of your web camera. All instructions will be sent to you via email. If you applied for a scholarship, you will also be asked to send a brief motivation letter that should explain why you requested the scholarship and why it should be granted to you.
After successfully passing the cognitive test, the applicant is invited to participate in a coding simulation.
Don't worry, the simulation is tailored for programming beginners. You will only need a well-charged laptop, stable internet connection and good mood. ;) Depending on the mentors' and applicants' availability, the simulation can be conducted during a personal meeting or via a remote session.

During the course, however, we focus not only on coding, but also on the development of soft skills, including communication and presentation skills, stress management, collaboration and teamwork. In particular, we feel it is important that our students feel confident in their future workplaces, so each class at Green Fox is allocated a dedicated psychologist. Students take part in training and coaching sessions as needed, and present their knowledge to our mentors and / or our partners in individual and group presentations.
We are in strong cooperation with our hiring partners and we develop our syllabus based on their needs and that’s why we are sure that the knowledge you can obtain at Green Fox Academy is IT job-ready.
To guarantee this we go even further: if you can't find a job in IT within 6 months after successful graduation, we refund the 100 % of your tuition fee (or forfeit it if you chose post-payment).
For your successful placement we need your efforts as well, because you will go through the same selection process as any other candidates for junior programmer positions. It means that we will expect you to participate in all interviews organised by us, as well as to actively search for and apply to jobs after your exclusivity period is over. Please find the rest of the conditions in the student contract.
Until the age of 30 he happily worked in the hospitality industry, and then he realized that it wasn't possible to balance this with his personal life. He decided to make a radical change and as usual it was a woman who was behind it. His girlfriend it was, who, as an accountant, carefully calculated that IT held the best future for him. Words were spoken and Ondrej Foral retrained as a junior programmer.
He has always been drawn to computers. “After vocational technical school I learned a bit of Python and Pascal. I also played with Arduino,” Dan Hájek starts telling his story. He was well suited for university, for one of the technical fields. However other interests prevailed in the end and he found himself at afaculty of arts. Yet his love for programming had not left him and thus he decided to take a short cut to become a junior programmer.
Mother and father are both programmers and finally their son became one too! From the age of eight, Ondřej Hlušička knew what he would one day be, but as usual, the path of life is not always straightforward. It led him through the complaints handling department of Amazon and an endless number of mistakes. "Every problem has a solution and I enjoy looking for it. It's the same in coding," he laughs.
