PISCINE

[FEBRUARY 2020] As we are preparing to roll out the new 42 curricula, as well as make necessary upgrades to our technical infrastructure, we have decided to cancel our upcoming Piscines to allow us to make these necessary upgrades and changes to better serve all of our student population. During this transition period, we will be suspending the application/admission process until we finalize the roll out of our new curricula and complete our technical infrastructure improvements. During this time we strongly encourage all student applicants to consider applying to another 42 campus, or another coding school like Holberton, or MOOC, Open Classroom, Coursera, or Udemy to name a few. If you have any questions, or need any specific assistance, please reach out to us at contact@42.us.org

4 weeks of coding

Monday to Sunday, day and night

No previous experience required

Many students consider it to be one of the highlights of their student life: everyone around you shares a similar passion for coding and is facing the exact same dilemmas at the same time.
Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to come and spend 4 weeks, 7 days a week, day and night, coding your heart out with several hundred other candidates all hoping to earn the same prize: to be a full-time student at 42.

JUST TRY IT!

We start with the basics, and using a computer, you will write your first lines of code before moving on to more complex coding exercises. No previous programming experience required! We simply ask that you know how to use a mouse and a keyboard.

Throughout this experience, you will try and you will fail, over and over again. That’s the point: learning the trial-and-error process builds stamina, determination, and process skills that are necessary to be a software engineer.

Basic Training is done using the 42 style of learning: no teachers, no classes or courses, no books. You work by yourself and in groups, ask your peers for help, help your peers, and complete projects. Not convinced? Try it!

So what are you waiting for?
