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

There will be 2 Piscines during the summer.
To register to a Piscine, you must first complete a check-in. The next available check-ins will be in the Spring 2020.
Online check-ins will be available on both check-in dates only for applicants who are able to start their studies this fall, and their reason for not attending the check-in is out of their control or it is unreasonable to assume that they would attend it in person.
