The hands-on coding programme that will transform your career.

We teach you how to think and work like a programmer. We'll introduce you to the modern technologies you need for full stack web development, and by the end of our programme you will be able to build applications and prototypes - independently and in teams.

Programming is a mindset as well as an ability — Joshua Vial, co-founder



Remote | 6 weeks full time

Foundations is an accelerated, challenging experience. You will study remotely, taking on weekly challenges, and having weekly check-ins with tutors. It is vital you have reliable access to the internet throughout Foundations.


Auckland, Wellington, or Online Campus
9 weeks, 60 hours per week

The 9 week Bootcamp is a completely immersive experience. Expect to be busy and focused. Most students commit about 60 hours per week to lectures, assignments, challenges, and side projects.

You will be guided by teachers who are passionate about helping students master the principles of software development, and you will learn by solving coding challenges in pairs, solo and in group projects.

We know the time commitment is intense so we offer mindfulness and long lunches to combat fatigue, and we are committed to supporting your emotional and physical wellbeing.

Human Skills

Weekly deep dives and check-ins

While we train you to be a junior developer, we equally emphasise teaching collaboration and interpersonal skills. Most web development is done in teams and requires effective communication with designers, project managers, and clients.


2 weeks, after Bootcamp - 50 hours

Our careers sessions will help you develop the skills to land your first dev job and grow your career. Topics include effectively job hunting, CV preparation, and skills for interviewing. Careers sessions are recorded so graduates can review them when preparing for a big job interview. Graduates can also work 1-on-1 with an industry recruiter to help with their job seeking efforts.

Tech Stack

Dev Academy focuses on JavaScript and TypeScript, both essential in the current job market. Our students are also equipped with the skills to pick up other coding languages. Other languages and frameworks we explore include React, Redux, RESTful APIs, HTML and CSS.

We prepare you to be a full stack developer by giving you opportunities to work in teams, use industry tools, facilitate simple agile processes, and deliver technical and non-technical presentations just like you would in the industry.
