How do we teach?

"Human beings are not ideally configured to understand logic, they are ideal for understanding stories."

- Roger Schank

Our software development program is unique because we teach the skills necessary to perform the job from the first day. We call our courses with mentors in what we call "deep immersions" because, from day one, our students immerse themselves in an authentic role, in a real-world setting, with all the complex challenges of the industry. Our programs focus on a rich and engaging story in which students receive a realistic role in an organization, work to achieve real goals, overcome real challenges and explore the opportunity to make real mistakes and learn from them in a safe environment. Along the way, your mentor provides resources, tools and constructive and critical information about your work when you need it.

The participant will begin education in the area of software development, learning in addition to the development of front-end. In the role of Front-End Developer, will work on the "client side" of websites, web applications and mobile applications, developing the code with which users interact. After learning Front-End Development, you can choose to take your skills to the next level.
