Why attend

Focus, no distractions

Focus away from distractions, accelerate your learning. One week to focus on just one thing, learning React. Like-minded people, experienced instructors, comprehensive curriculum, and an amazing place.

Learn by doing

Learn by doing, move fast and break things. We want you to code as much as possible, and make mistakes in a safe environment. You will practice everything we explain in our project-based hands-on training.


Our experienced instructors will do code reviews and they will give you individual feedback. Instructors will guide you to think of the best way to solve a problem.

Collaborative environment

You will work in teams and pairs. You will have to explain what you do and how, rather than just doing. Explaining is a great way to learn and consolidate new skills.

The place

Code, collaborate, learn and live all in a single, beautiful and comfortable place (up to 19 people).
