Hack Academy is set to begin a new programme from the 29th May 2017 to the 7th of October, 2017. This programme gives you the opportunity to become a full-stack Software Engineer in just 19 weeks and will enable you acquire the skills that would translate directly into getting tech jobs.
Alongside a 19 week in-class training, participants would also be given the opprotunity of a 6 months paid internship in top tech firms where they would also learn to work with client both at the local and international levels. This programme is designed to teach anyone with little or no programming experience to become a full-stack Software Developer by the end of the programme. All that is required is passion, determination and willingness to learn. Getting a computer-science degree is good, but it may not guarantee you an employment, because employers now require people with strong programming skills. At Hack Academy, up-to-date versions of recent open-source framework and industry trends in a way that you don’t generally see in university curriculum, are taught. By the end of the programme, every student should have gathered over a 1000 hours of programming experience and a portfolio that would be attractive to any tech firm in the world.
Hack Academy fees for this programme is a total sum of N300,000.00 (Three Hundred Thousand Naira). It is certain that before the end of the internship, the cost spent on the programme would already have been recovered, this is because an average full-stack software Engineer in Nigeria earns about N200,000 (Two Hundred Thousand Naira) per month, while those who land remote jobs with foreign companies earn an average of $5,000 (Five Thousand Dollars) per month.
