Amsterdam needs (female) developers
Wild Code School offers full scholarships for women who want to learn how to code!
The choice for Amsterdam as the first Wild Code School location in the Netherlands is not a big surprise. After Paris and London, the metropolis of Amsterdam is the largest region in Europe for professional developers. And although it already accommodates around 215.000 developers, it still isn’t enough for all the big tech companies and startups in the region. They just need more developers.
The founder and CEO of Wild Code School is Anna Stépanoff, who has multiple degrees, including a BA from Harvard and a PhD from the Sorbonne. And as you might expect from a female-founded company, Wild Code School is very supportive of women in tech, providing full scholarships for women who want to learn how to code. The Wild Code School campus in Amsterdam offers five full scholarships for women wanting to start the programme in January.
By choosing the Wild Code School in Amsterdam, you’re joining a huge European network of alumni. This network offers great opportunities to meet new people and a professional network across tech companies in Europe. Wild Code School has its own in-house messaging system to talk to fellow students and alumni.
Fun fact; a class exchanges an average of 100.000 messages during their course, talking about tutorials, tools, hacks, jobs, or just deciding who is bringing what for afternoon drinks.
A year after graduation, 87% of Wild Code School students are employed as developers. Imagine that a year from now, you are working as a developer at one of the great tech companies in the Netherlands or abroad.
