Due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, the Gaza Sky Geeks Code Academy must be adapted to be delivered at least partially online. To allow for the Code Academy team to plan, design, and test our content to ensure we can uphold a quality program in these new circumstances, we have delayed the start of our new cohorts to September 2020.
The application will remain open during the coming months until the 31st of July, and interested folks are encouraged to apply. We will update this page and our applicants with information on the adapted program as our plans develop.
Palestine's code academy
The GSG Code Academy is Palestine’s first immersive, 6-month career accelerating web development bootcamp with a flagship campus in Gaza City and second campus in the West Bank city of Hebron. This program is for anyone truly serious about putting in the time, effort, and determination to become a junior web developer ready to work in a tech company. A university degree or prior technical experience is not required. The goal of the Code Academy is to accelerate the growth of globally competitive coding talent in Palestine. We believe that by helping Palestinian youth build high-tech and modern skills to participate in the exponentially growing tech sector, they will have a sustainable and long-term pathway to high-quality employment.
The next cohorts of the Gaza and Khalil Code Academy will hopefully begin in Autumn 2020. Thus, application’s deadline will be extended until July 31st, 2020, and can be accessed using the links below.
