Classes are entirely online! And through our Journey, we’ll go through weekly tasks and one-on-one mentoring and then, a big bang – the final hackathon, which will be launched in Notch Zagreb office – Ul. Republike Austrije 33
In the orbit with Crocube
Be a bright star for the first Croatian satellite that goes into orbit in 2024! Devcademy weekly tasks, as well as the final hackathon, will have a CroCube flag on it.
We’ll land in the Notch Zagreb office and introduce you to Devcademy Universe and your crew to the Agile Software Development mission. (You can also meet us online for this part of the Journey.)
Take Off Sprint
31.07. – 04.08.
You’ll travel through space and time of software development. Clean Code, Agile and Scrum, UI/UX, DevOps, and Git are some stars you’ll visit on this trip.
In Your Own Space Station
07.08. – 25.08.
You and your team will work on tasks and challenges and have a one-on-one with your technology captains. Ask anything you want, try anything that comes to mind, there’s no gravity here.
3, 2, 1… Landing!
Outwit our last challenge and develop a winning application for CroCube with your crew. And after you land, you know there will be a space beer party ready with your name on it!
We’re so proud!
So far, more than 100 students have participated in Notch Devcademy. Find out more about their journey from Devcademy students to today’s Notch employees.
“Last year during the summer holidays, I wanted to gain new experiences and expand my knowledge, and at the same time, I wanted to spend the summer at sea. Devcademy allowed me both. I learned a lot working on weekly assignments, and I could always turn to mentors who were available and friendly. At the Hackathon, I had the opportunity to experience what it is like to work in a team on a real project, and after graduation, I got a job at Notch.”
Tihana Oremuš, Software Engineer
“I consider Devcademy to be the beginning of my professional career, which makes it one of the most memorable events. The weekly tasks are not overly demanding, which is a great thing, and the highlight of the education was Hackathon. After successfully completing the weekly tasks, we test the acquired knowledge, and the winners of the Hackathon are provided with valuable prizes. But also, more importantly, an opportunity to become part of Notch – so I can recommend participation to anyone who wants to build a solid foundation for their future careers.”
Vitomir Marjanović, Software Engineer
“Participating in the Devcademy was an ideal way to take advantage of the summer. The weekly tasks were challenging enough to interest me, but also simple enough to easily fit into my summer schedule. The mentors followed our work and were ready to answer all our questions. As the most fun, but also the most challenging part of the school, I would definitely highlight the two-day Hackathon where we had the opportunity to understand the importance of teamwork, good organization, and a pleasant work atmosphere in application development.”
Valentina Križ, Software Engineer
“I was really surprised by the efficiency of the approach to education. Mostly because it resulted in my ability to create a functional and complete backend without previous knowledge. The whole process was pleasant and stress-free, with weekly tasks that can be easily mastered. I always had someone available for questions and there was always someone reviewing my code and suggesting where I could improve, so this experience contributed to my programming more than I expected. I liked that in the end, we had the opportunity to work in a team, an important aspect of the development of the application.”
Jurica Jurić, Software Engineer
After we receive all applications, we’ll make a selection of the best candidates for Devcademy: Space Edition. The chosen ones will then be given a small test. Top-notch individuals will be called to a short interview and then we ready to launch Devcademy: Space Edition.
For the Devcademy: Space Edition you can be anywhere in the galaxy! The whole program will be held online, but for the launch and Hackhaton we’ll also be on-site in our Zagreb office, Republike Austrije 33.
You don’t need to be a developer to participate in Devcademy, but you do need to know some basics of programming to be able to follow lectures and solve our space challenges.
