SPICED Academy is a coding bootcamp based in Berlin. We offer 12-week, intensive programming courses designed for people that want to become high-performing software engineers. We believe that anyone with the grit and motivation to learn to code can do so. Our rigorous courses accelerate learning and help our students be ready to excel – confident, prepared, and empowered.
We want to encourage a diverse range of people to get excited about technology and its possibilities. By giving people the tools, resources and skills needed, our goal is to inspire people to see how coding can help them to make a meaningful impact upon the world.
We’re committed to empowering our students. We want each individual to leave SPICED with an exceptional self-starter attitude and creative problem-solving skills. Each graduate will be a team player, ready to make an impact not only on their next job, but society at large.
The collaborative culture at our coding academy fosters valuable team skills that set our students apart from the competition. We also collaborate with best-in-class companies, educational institutes and industry experts to provide the best learning experiences, ideas and insights.
