"Women who Code" Scholarship Barcelona
Ubiqum Code Academy offers 10 technological scholarships for highly qualified employment. One Scholarship will be awarded each month from January 2018 to December 2018.
This course is designed to train women with no previous programming experience in 800 hours spread over 5 months and turn them into a Junior Full Stack Developer for use in any development project. If you don’t know anything about programming and are motivated to work hard for 20 weeks and start a new career, this is your course.
If you already have some programming skills you can also access the course, perhaps validating some modules, and you will learn in an orderly and systematic way the current techniques of application development.

The course by weeks
Your First Website
It’s essential you learn how to make websites work for all devices. In this module you will use Bootstrap and other frameworks to make your designs sing.
Build a mobile friendly web application (Battleships!), including a back-end game server to manage the games, scoring, and player profiles. Use Java and the Spring Boot Framework.
"To make a career you have to invest four years. They teach you a lot of things, and a lot of very little practice, but if someone is clear that they want to be a programmer, this is a much faster, more direct and effective way."
