4 weeks of coding

This is not another bootcamp. The Piscine lasts four weeks, including weekends, day and sometimes, night. You’ll be coding your heart out with other candidates, all hoping to earn the same prize: to enroll as a full-time student at Hive.

No experience required

We only ask that you can use a mouse and a keyboard. Everyone, regardless of background, will get hands-on tasks from day one, face the exact same challenges at the same time, and be pushed to collaborate with each other.

It’s not a competition

Collaboration is essential to succeed in the real world and so it is in Hive. Everyone will be in the same boat and there’s no need to compete. If everyone swims, we take everyone. If no-one swims, we take no-one. Statistically, about 1/3 of swimmers succeed.

Practical info

Piscines 2022 are planned to be organized normally on site at Hive Campus.

In case COVID-19 prevents us from organizing the Piscines normally, we will organize online versions of Piscine, Basecamaps as an alternative.
