About us

WE SEE CODING AS A CRAFT. Hacking things together is easy; producing elegant, maintainable, robust software is hard. Our students see themselves as artisans, striving to write high-quality software using state-of-the-art techniques. WE LOVE PAIR PROGRAMMING. Pair programming is a key part of the Makers Academy experience. The code produced by a pair of developers is of a higher quality and we learn better if we pair on a problem. WE USE AGILE PRACTICES. Our students experience working in agile teams throughout the course, learning to collaborate, deliver to tight deadlines, resolve conflicts, and efficiently communicate with each other. WE LEARN BY DOING. Our students appreciate that listening to entertaining lectures is fun, but they will only learn the hard way: by writing code themselves. They aim to spend almost all their time at Makers Academy building software, not listening to others telling them how to write code. WE DRIVE OUR OWN LEARNING. One of the main skills of a software developer is the ability to learn. At Makers Academy our students learn autonomously while being surrounded and supported, but not lectured to, by professional software developers. Makers Academy's reputation rests on how well our graduates can learn and progress by themselves. WE LOOK AFTER OUR HEALTH. Makers Academy is a bootcamp, so it will require all of your emotional and physical reserves. Our students do not neglect their well-being, because they know that sound mind, sound body and peak learning performance go together.
