MEET HEAD OF PRODUCT, NATHAN BENJAMIN
It might seem like an impossible task to learn how to code and become a developer, but I assure it isn't!
What is MERN?
“MERN” is an acronym for four tools: MongoDB, Express, React, and Node.js. These four tools, when integrated together as a stack architecture, allow you to perform certain back-end functions without having to learn a whole new back-end language. While traditional back-end languages like Java are essential in the corporate world and for large-scale software development, MERN Stack is a very solid alternative for the initial stages of startups and boasts a huge demand on the market.
THE SKILLS EMPLOYERS ARE LOOKING FOR
Responsive Web Design
In just 2 weeks you will have created your first website from scratch with HTML and CSS. Your task will be to design and code a website for a football league, test it to verify that it complies with the W3C standards, and make sure it works on any web browser, always with the personalised support of your mentor, who will guide you in the different processes of design, creation, and testing.
Soccer League Website
“I don't have a background in graphic design nor in programming but I love what I'm learning because there are no limits to what you can make.”
Open Government Website
You'll use Firebase and jQuery to add user interface elements and improve the design and functionality of your first project at Ubiqum.
100% Responsive Website
"As a civil engineer, I had no experience in programming, yet in the third project, after just 5 weeks at Ubiqum, everything seemed possible!"
In the fourth project, you'll develop a web app for the travel and hospitality market. The product, MYtinerary.com, allows local experts to create their ideal routes to share on the app. For example, you can create the perfect afternoon in Berlin, a 4-hour “MYtinerary”, or the perfect weekend in Amsterdam, a 36-hour “MYtinerary”.
You will create the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) based on the requirements defined by wireframes and associated user stories, provided by the Product Manager. During a total of 6 "Sprints", you will work according to the principles of Agile methodology, completing the tasks assigned to you and ensuring that your MVP complies with the established requirements.
With the ”MERN” stack framework, you will create your back-end setup with Node.js, Express, and MongoDB, before getting your front-end app started with React.
What you'll do:
- Build various dynamic user interface (UI) elements in React
- Set up a runtime environment in Node.js and Express
- Translate Agile-based business requirements and user stories into measurable business logic
- And much more

Meet the Mentors
At Ubiqum there are no teachers, instead, you'll have access to a team of mentors who are 100% involved in your learning process. These programming experts will be on hand at all times to answer questions, motivate you, and accompany you on each project towards your new profession as a programmer.
Start Dates and Tuition
We don’t want financing to be an obstacle. Let’s discuss your options!
You can pay 50% when you start the program and the rest when you get hired!
What is the completion rate and student satisfaction?
We are confident in our methods and content, demonstrated in the fact that we offer an employment guarantee which allows students to pay only half their tuition at the beginning of the course and the rest only once they’ve successfully secured employment.
What is Ubiqum Code Academy’s learning methodology?
Ubiqum uses an immersive project-based curriculum develop by experts from Northwestern's Institute of Learning Sciences. Our learning methodology focuses 100% on “learn by doing”. You will work on projects similar to those you’ll find on the job and complete them using the same tools used by professionals currently in Developer positions. A mentor will be available at all times to provide help and evaluate your work. We offer you a supportive and engaging work environment, where you can feel free to make mistakes and learn from your experiences. This will fully prepare you to think like a coder.
How much access do students have to the mentors?
"Mentors are full-time Ubiqum staff who are onsite every day. Typically, a student will have one 15-minute personal session a day, and this is complemented by "scrum", the daily stand up, and group code reviews facilitated by the mentors. They also lead guided discussions, or "spikes", around shared topics, such as complex problems that multiple students are working on.
