Industry Experience


At Coder Academy, we're passionate about looking for ways we can encourage diversity in the tech sector. With so few women and other minority groups choosing Computer Science subjects and degrees, there is a strong need for confidence building via mentorship, role models, and an educational opportunity that translates into real world experience.

To combat the lack of diversity in the creation of the algorithms and technology that dictate many important aspects of our lives, Coder Academy is proud to offer one Diversity Scholarship for each intake of the GenTech Bootcamp. The scholarship will cover 50% of total course fees of $19,700. Scholarships will be judged on a creative submission, and finalists will be determined following an interview. Scholarship deadline is 14 days prior to course start date.

Pre-Class Assistance

Class doesn’t officially kick off until 10:00AM on Monday-Wednesday, but our educators arrive at 9:00AM every day to offer extra assistance to students who have questions from the previous day, need advice on a particular issue, got stuck debugging their code, or want help with their projects.

Daily Lecture

The day is split into a morning and afternoon session, with the morning portion kicking off at 10:00AM. The lead educator will introduce a new concept each morning by leading class discussions and/or walking students through coding demonstrations as they code along.


Coding Challenge

Each afternoon, students are given a practical coding challenge that reinforces the concept introduced in the morning session. That’s right - you will be coding every day! The challenge is supervised by the lead educator and teaching assistants, who are always available to assist and support students.

Code Review

To wrap up the day, students and educators reconvene to do a code review and partake in a closing discussion. Class technically ends at 5:00PM, but students are always welcomed and encouraged to stay as late as they need.
