A Coding School That Runs
Like A Software Company

Africa Code Academy prepares students for real-world scenarios by structuring class-time just like a software company. Meaning, students are referred to as ‘Devs,’ teaching assistants are called ‘Project Managers’ and the lead instructors are called the ‘Engineers in Residence’.

And because it’s a software company—it’s all about the product.

Learn to SHIP

Devs start by learning software engineering  fundamentals with an emphasis on delivering solid code.

Mentor Future Students

After graduation, devs will have the opportunity to turn around and become project managers at the school.

Start a Business

Devs will also have the opportunity to join the start-up accelerator where they’ll learn skills to create their own business.
