What you'll learn

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, 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.




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. Most students commit about 60 hours per week to lectures, assignments and challenges. You will be guided by teachers who are passionate about helping you master the principles of software development, and you'll learn by solving coding challenges in pairs, solo and in group projects.

It's intense so we offer mindfulness and long lunches to combat fatigue and study from home days. In our Auckland campus, one day a week will be studying from home. In Wellington we have been offering hybrid study which is some days from home and some from the campus. If you have questions about this, get in touch.

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.
