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.
We will start with the basics, and using a computer, you will write your first lines of code before moving on to more complex coding exercises. It won’t be necessary to have any previous programming experience. We simply ask that you know how to use a mouse and a keyboard.
Throughout this bootcamp experience, you will try and you will fail, over and over again. However, the good news is that this trial-and-error process is necessary in order to find solutions to problems that you once thought impossible.
You will learn by doing it this way (by yourself or in a group; without teachers; without lessons), that it works.
The “piscine” is a type of training in-and-of-itself, so if, in the end, you do not move on to the next level of the challenge to become a full-time student at 42, you will still be rewarded with the knowledge that you have received throughout this competition.
So what are you waiting for? Grab your towel, and let’s go to the “piscine!“
