You’ll learn quicker than you thought possible. Our model transforms beginners into full-stack web developers. Through effort, community support and training, we help beginners with little or no technical background reach a level of proficiency that allows them to get paid and continue learning on the job as junior web developers.
Check out our program
At Dev Academy we don’t have grades, degrees or traditional lectures. Our program immerses you in a world of code and supports you through a whole person approach. It is designed for your technical mastery, your awareness of self, understanding of others and your well-being. You’ll do yoga twice a week and have check in sessions regularly. You’ll work closely with mentors and teachers and your peers – who will be diverse in age, experience, and background. Diversity is integral to your success as a programmer, as it is to the world at large. The new brood of global web developers are highly engaged in creative, dynamic and collaborative teams and so it is our job to equip you with the skills and understanding you will need to thrive in these environments.
Why be a web developer
There is an insatiable amount of work for web developers in New Zealand and worldwide. We’ve teamed up with some of New Zealand’s leaders in tech to help fill that need. We introduce you to potential employees and stick with you until you find your first web development job.
