How do our students learn?

In 12 weeks' time, Makers is going to take you to a level where you can proudly take on the role of a junior developer. How do we do that?

We have a carefully thought-out curriculum which advances you in software development week by week. Students learn in peer-to-peer environments facilitated by experienced facilitators.

  • Students use a pair program for the majority of the day.
  • Daily workshops & code reviews are led by coaches.
  • Constant communication using online chat tools.

Our course is designed to give you the skills you need for working in a real development team. From day one you'll be participating in stand-ups, retros and pair programming. You'll also learn about TDD and agile and through the course you'll manage your own projects using different project management tools that align with these principals.

Much of the course will be spent with programming in Ruby, but the Makers students finish the course language-agnostic: meaning that they will be able to program in any language.
