Academia de Código
Founded in 2015, this Portuguese-born social impact startup is focused on reprogramming lives through the empowering teaching of code.
Strongly committed to snatching talented minds out of unemployment && || dead-end jobs, they currently host a regular 14-week intensive && immersive full-time full-stack programming bootcamps in 4 different campus within the Portuguese territory (Lisbon, Oporto, Fundão && Terceira Island) and are about to expand it overseas (namely to Cape Verde and Brazil).
Their regular programming bootcamps welcome n00bs of all ages (over 18) && backgrounds – graduates or not – as long as they are willing to fully and passionately commit to becoming professional – and happily employed – junior full-stack software developers within a very short period of time. Students are guided throughout the course by a team of instructors who have themselves formerly been pupils at the bootcamp. Their teaching methods are peculiar && their passion for clean code is only surpassed by their love for amazingly talented people that society has disregarded.
In each one of their campuses, different financing/sponsorship solutions are offered to help talented candidates that cannot advance the bootcamp’s fee. Its specific terms and conditions are listed on their site’s (www.academiadecodigo.org) FAQs.
