Learn to code without quitting your job

There's no need to give up financial stability and quit your job to kickstart your career in tech!

Diana Blaum - Ironhack Germany



Entering the world of coding is a very exciting challenge. In fact, there are dozens of different programming languages. For example, developers use HTML and JavaScript to create web pages. Swift is a popular language for iOS developers. And Python is, well, pretty much good for everything. So you can create virtually anything with code, given the right knowledge.

Coding isn't difficult, but finding the right way to get started can be tricky. As with any new skill you want to learn, you need to have enough motivation and time to be able to successfully implement what you've learned someday. Especially for working professionals, this can be a real challenge. 

The thing about tech courses and bootcamps is that you learn everything you need to know to get started in the tech industry in a relatively short amount of time. That being said, we certainly do understand that not everyone can afford to quit their job in order to dive headfirst into a career change. 

Part-time courses - the perfect start for working professionals 

With this in mind, we have developed our part-time courses in such a way that they can be very easily combined with a job. For example, our part-time courses take place on two weekday evenings from 6:30pm to 9:30pm and Saturdays from 10am to 5pm. This allows you to take the first steps into your tech career without having to quit your job and give up financial security. Furthermore, our part-time courses (unlike the full-time program) span six months, giving participants a longer period of time to process and review everything they've learned.

The six-month program features lectures with live demos, exciting projects, and group assignments that encourage our participants to get out of their own heads and interact with other peers within the industry. The courses offer a balance of intensity, workload and providing skills that are currently sought after in the tech-field. Our goal is to give our students everything they need to start their careers in the tech industry over the course of 6 months. There is no need for any previous experience, what is more important is the willingness and motivation to start a new chapter and follow it through. 

Our alumni can confirm how enriching it is to participate in one of our bootcamp courses. In addition to all the technical skills and a strong portfolio of your work, completing the part-time program is also a great confidence booster. Moreover, you also build many new friendships and valuable connections within the industry throughout the entire period of time that will remain with you long after the program is over. Staying true to our motto - Once an Ironhacker, always an Ironhacker.
