Event description

Description

Join us as we inspire the next generation of Australian technologists and creators! Coder Academy’s new GenTech Bootcamp is a unique, alternative, industry-focussed, higher education pathway to a career in coding and technology for 17-25 year olds.

The GenTech Bootcamp not only teaches essential coding and technical skills in a highly practical way that involves hands-on building of applications every day of class; our educators also focus on developing computational thinking, critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration both in class and during the 1-month industry experience component of the course. Students can choose to fast track into their second year of an IT or Software Development degree at the top universities with practical skills under their belt, or use their newly acquired, relevant skillsets to secure an in-demand career as a Junior Developer anywhere in the world.

This event is designed for school and university graduates ages 17-24, but open to anyone wanting to learn what steps they can take to pursue a career in the tech sector. Hear from industry experts from fashion, music, FMCG, tech, and more in the presence of likeminded individuals.
