Holberton launches Summer Coding Camp!

Holberton is launching it’s inaugural Summer Coding Camp! This is a 3-week Summer Coding Camp for 15 to 18 year olds where students will not attend class but will be learning through  building their first website, following our progressive education methodology focusing on learning by doing.

Over the course of the camp, tech companies will tour their offices to students, in addition to collaborating with current Holberton students and mentors, so that our campers will gain exposure and keen insights on what it takes to become a professional in the tech industry.

GRAMMY award-winning artist NE-YO is part of the mentor team, he recently joined the school’s Board of Trustees to help attract underrepresented groups to software engineering. NE-YO will be reviewing our campers’ progress personally.

Following Holberton’s mission to make high quality education accessible to the most, the 3-week camp is totally free and can even accommodate for those who cannot afford transportation and food.

The coding camp will cover the basics of HTML, CSS and Javascript. Students will learn to build their first website and personalize it to their taste. Mentors from Silicon Valley Tech companies will come to the school to coach them and give feedback on their performance during the demo day.
The camps starts on June 26th and applications are now open! If you want to support this initiative, please help us spread the word!
