Our Awesome Jumpstarters

Our jumpstarters are people who learned technology from various backgrounds like computer science, self-taught coder, software engineer, entrepreneurship, software architect and cybersecurity! We work on a peer-learning model and they have successfully learned to code, worked professionally as developers and play a pivotal role in keeping the community tight.

1. What is the end goal?

As a full-stack developer, you can design, develop and deploy customizable web applications for both desktop and mobile web browsers. You can even start freelancing and working remotely! You will be equipped with the skills to build a variety of products including social media platforms, Software-as-a-Service products, complex marketplaces, and complete inventory management systems.

2. I have no prior coding experience, can I still join?

Definitely! Our web development course is tailored to be beginner friendly. Do take note that your own effort is also expected on top of our weekly meetups.

3. Any hidden costs?

Zero hidden costs! None at all. We only charge a fixed fee and recommend all free open-source tools.

4. Do I need an idea for an app?

You don't need an idea to start! But if you do have one, the jumpstarters will help you refine and iterate during your time together, as well as help you take in and synthesize user feedback.

5. What is the mentor-to-student ratio?

We allocate 3-5 mentors to each group of 10. That's a 1:2 mentor-student ratio. In university it's 1 lecturer to 100 students. In bootcamps it's 3-5 mentors to 30 students. We keep our groups small to ensure each student gets the feedback and attention they need to build and launch their app.

6. What do I need to participate in the learning groups?

All our learning groups are remote, students join us from all over Southeast Asia! You will need a computer with an internet connection (recommended 1.5Mbps up/1.5Mbps down). We also recommend a mic and a web camera so you can participate in each session - most laptops have these built-in.

7. What if I need help when I'm trying to learn by myself at home?

Feel free to contact your mentors anytime via Discord/Whatsapp any time at all throughout the week! We provide unlimited mentorship and guidance.

8. Will there be opportunities to meet up with other people in the community?

Of course! We frequently host online/physical Townhall Sessions where the community come together, network and build projects together. This can be a perfect opportunity for everyone from The Hacker Collective community to network and meet people from other groups!

9. Are the sessions recorded?

Yes, all our sessions are recorded and learning group members are given access to them to review between classes.

10. What is your refund policy?

We operate on a strict no refunds policy. Our team and jumpstarters take time to create a community for each participant so that you get the most possible out of your time. If you have experienced life extreme circumstances and will be unable to attend, let us know as soon as possible.
