Tech Track


👋 We’re a tough track on web development, frontend applications, and data visualization. We’re 👩🏽‍🎓 students, 👷🏽‍♀️ industry, and 👩🏽‍🏫 teachers combined, in one location, where everyone learns. We start October 8th and end November 23th.

We work from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m, every work day, for six weeks, in a lab setting with 40 students and 2 teachers. Every 2 weeks a new course on a particular topic.


Our students already know Bash, Git, GitHub, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, databases, Node, and npm. Not only that, they’re digital designers focussed on fixing problems for actual humans.

In this track we focus on frontend frameworks, such as React and Vue, and data visualistion, mostly with D3. This enables students to make their ideas for the web into reality. Though the subject matter is technical, attention to user experience and interaction design is, as always in our programme, stressed.

Feedback from last year:

“Top notch university education combining the strengths of online and offline learning in one valuable course. By far the highest quality course I had in my studies. Led by Titus who is inspiring, motivating and just in general an awesome person.”

“I learned so much […] There’s something awesome about sketching a concept of a data visualisation and then being able to build it yourself.”


“The course was engaging. Both novice and experienced developers were challenged, and both levels learned from each other”
