What is unique about App Academy?
Founder and CEO of App Academy, Kush Patel came up with something unique than what was existing already to train people to code. App Academy offers a commission based program that allows you to learn for free. Yeah! you heard me right, you can learn for free. Doesn’t that sound too nice to be true? But yup it is!
App academy allows you to learn to code for free and you pay them only once you are hired. You pay them back from your first year salary as a commission. So this way, you do not need to invest a huge amount of money at first. This has been working out really well, coz people are afraid if the tuition or training will really work for them, will they be able to grab a job? But that won’t be a case here! As you pay only after you get a job.
Not just this there’s more to it! They don’t enroll anyone and everyone in this course. They have app academy coding test and interviews to select students.
Wait! Don’t start yelling at me. You must be thinking, when you say it’s for beginners, so how do you expect a beginner to crack the interview?
App Academy coding challenge & test
Okay here’s the deal, they assign you some tasks or projects to complete as a part of app academy coding challenge and also provide you with materials to follow and use to learn from and complete the tasks. What I can think of it is, it’s just to test how dedicated and excited you are to learn with them. Are you willing to practice things, experiment them and learn form it? Then this course is for you!
The program runs for 12 extensive weeks where you learn this coding skills and work on real life projects. Once you are done, they also help you to land a job by guiding you with what’s important and what’s not!
