Free courses will not get you hired.
But really expensive ones won’t either.

How to Start

Finding your path is harder than ever. The amount of information is
overwhelming. You never know where to start.

What this means for you is:
You might feel alone and swamped
You are wasting time

What to do

In the beginning, you google for answers. This is why everybody
learns what’s the most popular. In IT “popular” is usually competitive & underpaid.

What this actually means:
You are making it harder for you
You are doing what’s less profitable

Benefits

Teamwork (Your team has tasks to complete)
Code Review (Senior Developer checks your code)
Peer Review (Your team mates help you by checking your code)

Frequently asked questions

Who is the Academy meant for?
For all drawn to and familiar with  computers, especially:

- Junior Developers who already work in other technologies.
- Junior Developers who know RoR and are looking for a job.
- Students who are serious about their careers
- All others starting their adventure with IT
Will I work by myself or in larger groups?
Because developer work and functions perfomed it rely on both independent and group work, the entire program of the Academy was created so that participants could experience both independent work and benefit from the support of the entire group.
What language is going to be used during learning?
As English is used primarily in day to day tasks of every developer, all materials, tasks, hints and the entire app interface is in English. The tasks and story are in text form and the mentor's solutions are videos.
What will I be doing? / What will be my tasks?
The whole experience of the Academy is unlike any other, the assignments are somewhat up to you.

Throughout the course, you will make your own fully functional application.
But each of your decisions about how to implement the current task and each line of code you write has a direct impact on what your next task will be.

There will be people at the end of this program having the same applications but each of thier experience and steps they had to take will be unique.
Can I show the App I have built to someone else?
Of course, you will be able to make the application available online immediately after the first sprint, but during this training program we do not learn the front-end, so it is only up to you how your application will look.
Will I learn front-end and backend?
No, the app only has a basic graphic interface and the focus of this Academy is mainly back-end.
How does the Academy look like?
Participants interact and learn through simulated employment conditions, that is:

- Learning exactly like the work of a Junior Developer
- User story and acceptance criteria, i.e. the story context and the scope of tasks assigned to be performed.
- each task has learning materials and hints that are to guide but do not solve the task.
- Peer Review i.e. you show your code to someone in your group to help you either
- Code Review, you give your code for review by your Tutor / Mentor as if you gave it to your Senior Developer.

Everything during the program is designed to best reflect the experience of working as a Junior Developer.
