Basic information

A képzés végére junior szintű programozói tudást szerzel, valamint sok-sok gyakorlatot valós projekteken és különböző technológiákban. Végzett hallgatóink az alábbi területeken helyezkednek el:
Backend
Frontend
Desktop
DevOps
Full-Stack
Mobile
Embedded
Data Science
Quality Assurance

MILYEN HOSSZÚ A PROGRAM?
A képzés teljes hossza nettó 4 hónap, plusz 2 hét szünet. (Heti 5 nap, napi 8 óra, hétfőtől péntekig)

MENNYI IDŐT VESZ IGÉNYBE?
A képzés időtartama alatt szinte mindet. :) Nem kertelünk: ha négy hónap alatt szoftverfejlesztővé szeretnél válni, akkor az komoly elköteleződést jelent. Az oktatás maga hétköznapokon reggel 9 és délután 6 óra között zajlik, viszont sokszor előfordul majd, hogy az iskolai munka otthoni előkészületeket kíván meg.

A képzés mentori keretrendszerű oktatási formában zajlik. Ez a gyakorlatban azt jelenti, hogy csupán az órák 10 százaléka lesz klasszikus előadás, a többi mentorok által vezetett csoportmunka. A képzés teljes időtartama alatt feladatok megoldásával folyik majd a tanulás. Az első két hónapban bevezető, gyakorló jellegű feladatokkal dolgozik a csoport, az utolsó két hónapban pedig a partnercégektől kapott valós projektekből vett mintaprojekteken.


A képzés folyamán azonban nemcsak a kódolásra koncentrálunk, hanem nagy hangsúlyt fektetünk az olyan soft skillek fejlesztésére is, mint a kommunikációs és prezentációs készség, illetve az együttműködés, csapatjáték. Fontosnak tartjuk, hogy hallgatóink könnyedén megállják a helyüket jövőbeni munkahelyükön, ezért két, teljes állásban erre dedikált szervezetpszichológus foglalkozik velük.

A kurzus teljes hossza alatt tréningeken és coaching alkalmakon vesznek részt, illetve péntekenként egyéni és csoportos prezentációk keretében számolnak be a mentoroknak és a partnereinknek az aktuálisan elsajátított tudásukról.

Képzéseink néhány havonta indulnak, neked pedig mindig az aktuálisan soron következőre van lehetőséged jelentkezni.

A következő kurzus indulása: 2018. május 7.
Jelentkezési határidő: 2018. március 25.

Felvételi eredmények: pár nappal a felvételi utolsó lépcsője után, legkésőbb április 6-ig

A felvétel folyamatosan zajlik, tehát minél hamarabb jelentkezel, annál nagyobb esélyed van bekerülni! ;)

HOL LESZ AZ OKTATÁS?
1062 Budapest Andrássy út 66., 2. és 3. emelet

HÁNY FŐT VESZÜNK FEL?
Egy tanulócsoport létszáma 15-21 fő.
Egy kurzus alkalmával 3 csoportot indítunk.

A képzésben való részvételnek nincsen semmilyen klasszikus képzési előfeltétele. Az egyetlen dolog, ami nélkül biztosan nem tudunk felvenni, az az ANGOLTUDÁS.​

Miért fontos ez?

Azért, mert a képzés tananyagának nagy része angol nyelven érhető el, illetve péntekenként a demók/prezentációk is angol nyelven zajlanak. A nyelvvizsga nem kötelező.
Ami előnyt jelenthet a felvételinél, de nem kritérium: ha már van egy diplomád, legyen az bármilyenha már próbálkoztál önállóan kódolással, esetleg részt vettél valamilyen online kurzuson ... és fontos, hogy életkori határ nincs. :)

A képzés sikeres elvégzése után segítünk munkát találni. Az elhelyezkedésre nem vállalunk garanciát, de aggodalomra semmi ok: a nálunk végzettek 96%-a programozóként dolgozik! Jó, ha tudod: a partnercégeinknél ugyanazon a felvételi folyamaton mennek végig a hallgatóink, mint a bármely más iskolapadból érkező juniorok.

A Green Fox Academy által kiállított oklevelet, amely igazolja majd, hogy sikeresen megfeleltél a kurzus követelményeinek, és letetted a záróvizsgát. Fontos tudnod: a képzés nem államilag akkreditált, így nem állíthat ki akkreditált bizonyítványt. Ezen nem is tervezünk változtatni, mert az akkreditációs folyamat nem tenné lehetővé, hogy mindig a legfrissebb technológiákat taníthassuk nektek. Mi abban hiszünk, hogy a megszerzett tudás igazi értékét az mutatja, hogy legkiválóbb hallgatóink azonnali munkalehetőséghez juthatnak.

1. What kind of skills will you acquire?

By the end of the course you will have junior level programming skills and lots of experience in different technologies. In the second half of the course you can specialize in the following areas.

  • Back-end
  • Front-end
  • Full-Stack
2. Why programming?

There is a huge demand for programmers both nationally and globally due to the enormous technological advancements of recent decades. Also, coding is more and more becoming 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.

3. What kind of teaching methodologies do we apply?

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.

4. What kind of preliminary qualifications are required?

Participation in the course requires no conventional preliminary qualifications. One thing you must have, though, is at least an intermediate level of both spoken and written English. This is very important, as in the English-speaking class the syllabus will be presented in English, and students' demos/presentations will also be expected to be given 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.

5. Where does the course take place?

It takes place on our premises at Václavské náměstí 11, Praha 1.

6. What happens after the course?

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 can deepen your coding knowledge for 10 more 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 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.

7. What kind of qualification will you receive?

You will receive a certificate issued by Green Fox Academy, confirming you have completed the course and passed the final exam. Please note: the course is not a state-accredited education course, and therefore we are not allowed to issue an accredited diploma. We have no plans to introduce accredited diplomas because the accreditation process would restrict our abilities to teach you the latest technologies. 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.

8. How and on what terms do we help you find employment after the course?

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 of Green Fox Academy's hiring partners through us. Our partners offer a gross salary of a minimum 40 000 CZK per month.

Become a Junior Software developer

Syllabus

The course is split into three modules, with each module focusing on a different technology.
Upon application you can add a preference order of Project module specializations, however, your assigned specialization depends on the following. (Regardless, with the knowledge you acquire you will be able to learn any other technology on your own in the future.)
  • our hiring partners' current needs
  • your application and exam results

1. Foundation module

The Foundation module focuses on the basic concepts of different algorithm implementation while using programming languages. It also introduces students to all of the necessary tools for creating programs, including editors, IDE-s, command lines, and version control systems, such as Git. The curriculum is mostly language-independent and focuses on the universal building blocks of programming languages, such as expressions, loops, conditions, functions, and data structures. At the end of the module, participants should be able to create a simple 2D graphical game that consists of a tile-based maze and a character, that can be controlled using the keyboard.

You can complete this module only if you do not necessarily want to become a developer (yet), but you would like to progress in your current career by obtaining programming skills. It is recommended for digital marketers, IT recruiters, project managers, business analysts, and for instance, UI designers.
Detailed Foundation module thematic

Main Topics

  • Command Line
  • Version control
  • HTML, CSS basics
  • Editors
  • Git, GitHub
  • Expressions
  • Control flow (loops and conditions)
  • Functions
  • Data-structures (arrays, lists and maps)
  • File handling
  • Modules and imports
  • Unit tests
  • Drawing
  • Object Orientation
  • Game Project

C#

This module will help you learn the basics of C#.  All of the exercises and materials are based on this language. It provides a strong foundation 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.

Following paths:

  • Easy: ASP.NET
  • Moderate: Full-Stack JavaScript

2. Orientation module

This module allows you to dig deep into specifics of the technological field. Depending on the path you choose, you will either learn web development on the server and/or client-side, or hardware-related development. During this period, you will start using technologies that are applied in real-life development activities. The path options are very different from each other, meaning your choices are limited. However, if someone is particularly talented, we allow them to choose a less-related path if they wish.

Upon finishing this module, you will be able to look at ongoing development projects. In case you do not imagine yourself as a developer, you will be able to work with programmers easier, what is an advantage at fields like project management, data-driven HR or founding your own startup.

Join this module directly (with a monthly or modular subscription) if you already have experience in programming, but not enough to get a developer job, or you would like to freshen your knowledge up. For this you will have to take the final exam of the Foundation module.

Detailed Orientation module thematic

ASP.NET

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.

Main Topics

  • C# delegate and lambda expressions
  • .NET Core
  • LINQ
  • SQL
  • ASP.NET
  • Razor Templates
  • MVC
  • ORM
  • REST
  • Bootstrap
  • Azure

Following paths:

  • Easy: Back-end
  • Moderate: Front-end, Full-stack

3. Project module

In the last period of the course, participants are split into 3-4 person groups, and each group is assigned with a project that has to be delivered by the end of the module. Participants learn the technologies on their own, but Green Fox Academy, of course, provides guidance. We consult with our clients regarding the technologies they currently use and incorporate these technologies into our projects.

After the course, until starting your new job you have an option to deepen your coding knowledge for 10 more weeks through working at our co-working space, Húli. Here you will face circumstances that are customary at your future workplace, therefore you can experience the everyday joys and struggles of an IT professional.
Detailed Project module thematic

Back-end

These projects are strictly back-end applications, written in C#.

Main Topics:

  • Token Based Authentication
  • Async structures
  • Complex database structures
  • Data migration
  • Hosting
  • Continuous Integration
  • Design Patterns
  • REST API
  • Unit/Integration testing

Front-end

These projects are strictly front-end applications, written in Angular 2+ and React, which are two of the most popular JavaScript frameworks. These applications are connected to the back-end applications provided by the other teams.

Main Topics:

  • Angular 2+ / React
  • Async structures
  • Advanced DOM
  • Token Based Authentication
  • Continuous Integration
  • Design Patterns
  • Unit/Integration testing

Full-Stack

These projects are developed in JavaScript from beginning to end, both on server and client sides. They help students in becoming knowledgeable about both sides of web development, however, not quite as deeply as the other paths that focus on either.

Main Topics:

  • Angular 2+ / React
  • Async structures
  • Advanced DOM
  • Token Based Authentication
  • Database structures
  • Continuous Integration
  • Design Patterns
  • REST API
  • Unit/Integration testing
The following chart summarizes what kind of technologies you can specialize in during each module, and what sort of options there are after completing them.

Columns are the modules in their respective order. Light green options are easy to continue with, dark green options are harder, and we only recommend black options to our most advanced students.

Why is selection process so important?

Not everyone can change their careers in just 4 months. A short phone conversation is not enough. We thoroughly examine applicants' cognitive abilities, their motivation and reactions to practical basics coding tasks. We want to minimize the risk of accepting people who are unable to withstand the intensity of the course and the challenges of career change. We select only those we believe we can handle. We provide a 100% job placement guarantee because we know that after choosing the right candidates, we have taught them everything they need to become junior programmers. After completing the process, you will learn not only wheter we have accepted you or not, but you also receive valuable feedback.

During the course, you will be communicating especially with our own organizational psychologist Katarina Grujičić, who will guide you through it and you will be meeting her during soft skills training throughout the course. Specific steps of the selection process vary depending on the type of course you choose but don't worry, we will guide you through it.

Trainings, coaching sessions

Becoming a developer is half a success without soft skills

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.
