What is it?
A Penguin Bootcamp is an intense 2 week programming course that brings our participants from Zero Programming knowledge to an internship level. You will experience 5 days of programming fundamentals, with 3 days of workshops culminating in a 3 Day hackathon where you build a product from scratch. The best part is that this product could potentially be your own startup.
The benefits do not just end there! After the bootcamp, you will automatically be part of the Penguin Talent Pool where you can be hired by one of our Corporate Partners. If you want to continue developing, you can be part of the Penguin Lab where you work on a real world project under the guidance of one of our Senior Developers. If that is not enough, you can create your own startup and Penguin will support you the whole way!

Coding as a School of Thought
We envision a world where education is self-sustainable, and where technology and humanity can work together in harmony.
Education today is preparing students for the past; it is time to prepare for the future. Today’s problems are global and complex and skills like divergent thinking, emotional intelligence and collaboration are needed to solve them. Code is the perfect medium to learn these skills, as they will help you build tomorrow’s world.
