Are you interested in technology? Do you want to find out if programming is right for you? Or do you want to try what a bootcamp looks like? Learn the basics of programming and build your first web application from scratch with the help of our professional materials.

Who is this course for?

For everyone! We are constantly looking for ways to use our expertise during #StayAtHome, so we’ve decided to offer a free online programming training for those who can’t work during the current situation and those who want to spend their time at home efficiently and gain skills of the present and the future - programming.

The course will not only improve your CV, but it can also be a gateway to a new career for those who are forced to change their jobs. We believe that the programming profession will remain in demand (30,000 IT specialists were missing in the Czech Republic in 2020).

My link for page or video doesn't work
Probably there will be a problem with the browser. We recommend using Google Chrome for the course. We have noticed problems especially with Microsoft Edge or Internet Explorer, which are not very suitable for such activities. 

Questions about the Coding Camp

Does training really start from scratch?
Yes, we try to operate the course with the minimum possible entry limit, which currently means the following:
1. You have a computer with stable internet connection and microfon (web camera is nice to have, but not necessary)
2. You can speak English, at least at conversational level
3. You will be available ideally for 3 weeks every weekday from 15:00 to 19:00.

Is it really free?
Yes, our main goal with the course is to give as many people as possible the opportunity to try programming in the time of coronavirus pandemic, whether it be self-improvement or even the foundation of a new career.

Are there any limits in applications?
No.

What if the participants can join only for a part of the 4 hours/day?
You can give a try if you have big motivation. :) As the courses will start from scratch, the participants probably won’t have any programming background, so probably only those who are really motivated and committed to programming will be able to make up for loss of several hours. Videos are recorded, so you can watch them anytime, also you don't have to join other on Discord, but you can practice anytime you want.

Out of the 4 hours per day how many more hours will I need to spend on homework?
It's worth dedicating to half-one hour a day for homework and practice.

Are the training materials still available after the course for the participants?
Yes, the prepared videos will be available also in future.

How will the course look like? Is it interactive, do we need microphone, headset or webcam?
On some days there will be interactive teamwork in the given time slots between 15:00 and 19:00, so it's nice to have a microphone in addition to your computer. Webcam is not necessary to complete the course, but it can help you to get to know each other better during the project and it can also support the teamwork.

What kind of laptop do I need for the course?
This laptop would preferably have at least a dual core processor and 4 GB of memory. The operating system can be Microsoft Windows, Linux, or Mac OS. You can also work from desktop PC.

Using a corporate laptop might have some limitations. In particular, what programs may be required to attend the training? Do I need to install any programs to my laptop?
In the first week, you probably won't need anything other than the Discord desktop app, and later these interfaces will come in handy:
https://desktop.github.com/
https://code.visualstudio.com/

Could you give us a little more information on the thematics? How complex projects will we work on? 
You're going to cover 4 topics in the first 2 weeks. For each topic first you can get the overall picture by watching a Material Review.. After that you'll join your study group to solve the so called workshop exercises. Each group of students will have the opportunity to help each other and reach real solutions through teamwork. You can always ask questions and give feedback to the other. Since the training is completely from scratch, so we’ll really focus on the basics, there will be no frameworks, but at the end of the project you’ll need to have a deeper understanding of the basics of Javascript and jQuery.

Are there any exams at the end of the course?
No.

Do you provide any certificate at the end of the course?
No, at the end of the course you will be enriched with the first self-developed web application and lots of practical knowledge :)

Do you offer headhunting service after finishing the course?
This 3-week course is rather designed to find out if programming is right for you as a career path. In such a short time, you will not be able to acquire the knowledge you need to find a job in the labor market. If you are already sure that you want to work in the IT field in the future, we recommend our Full-time or Part-time course, which you can study on-campus or even online.
