With 2 Paths for Beginners and Intermediate Coders

Learning coding can be tough. Navigating the different formats and languages you should start with. Getting stuck for days trying to find that rogue semi-colon causing a bug in your code and only Google to help. Committing the time to learn when you can’t take time off work, off studying or off a busy life.

We get it. That’s why our course is different. We focus on taking you from 0 to 1, and hold your hand the entire way to launch your coding career on your terms!

With flexible payment options and with all classes taught evenings and weekends, you get maximum flexibility to learn and apply practical coding skills on your own terms.

Our alumni have switched careers, launched businesses, got promotions and hired their team. Join the largest community of coding enthusiasts in the MENA region and start your coding journey today!

TESTIMONIALS

Alumni Reviews

The Astrolabs part-time Coding bootcamp is focused and current, teaching sought after skills around fullstack JavaScript. I never imagined that I’d be able to build a complete MERN stack application in 8 weeks, whilst still working full time. This bootcamp delivered beyond my expectations and cemented my desire to pursue web development.

Sajid Akhtar

Technology Director, Data Science Practice - Publicis Media MENA

For a beginner like me, the course was eye-opening and very interesting to learn. Instructors are helpful, knowledgeable, attentive to class needs and clear in explaining different types of codes and details. Very happy to be a part of this course and definitely need to keep learning.

Mustafa Aljuaidi

The environment was great. Instructors were super helpful and did everything in a timely manner, very flexible at all times. Everything I learned during this boot camp was very helpful to get me started on the process of learning web development and gave me just the right fundamentals and knowledge to move further and learn even more.

Troubleshooting our problems and walking us through them. Helping us every step of the way. Never leaving questions unanswered.

The best thing was that I learned about coding and creating a website from scratch within 2 months. All the sessions conducted were informative and not only did I learn, I also applied what was taught in assignments and group projects.
