Tech Skills

You will discover all aspects of website and mobile app development. The training focuses both on “frontend” and “backend”. Frontend consists of the visual elements that appear on your screen. Backend is the internal structure of a website or app. 

Soft skills

Today, businesses are looking to hire resourceful team players who are able to learn, keep up with technology and solve problems in a creative and clever way. That is why first and foremost at BeCode, you will learn how to learn, how to work as a team, how to manage a project from A to Z and how to see the opportunities in every problem.

“If you want to go fast, go alone.
If you want to go far, go together.”

We want you to become autonomous as fast as possible. That does not mean we want you to progress alone: to the contrary! 

The digital world as we know it is mostly built thanks to the opensource community. It is a space that exists because people decided to work together and help each other. Collaboration over competition is the new normal.

Likewise, at BeCode, you will be part of a diverse group of people, and together will learn to  become a team of professionals, fueled with the kindness and failing forward mentality required to take risks and learn – fast.

A thousand different stories

Don’t listen to us, listen to people who have followed our training!

“BeCode guided me to find my way in web development, to open up to working in a group and most importantly, be good at googling. I knew absolutely nothing before I started the BeCode, and now am part of an IT team in a software company.”

Marianna, Antwerp 2019

Precisely one year ago, the AI Data Science training started, offering me a breath of fresh air and new career opportunities. One year later, I would like to thank you for this terrific experience. I only keep positive memories of my time at BeCode : a new skillset, amazing new encounters and above all a reinforced self-esteem.

Claire, Brussels 2019

“My coaches guided me throughout the training and helped me overcome all the obstacles that I’ve had to face on the way. I’m forever grateful!”
