The graduates


In times of digitization and transformation, digital skills are key for our work and daily life. Master21 teaches the digital language - coding - in a practical way with a touch of theory. Knowing basic skills of coding is freedom and makes independent. The codeweek gave me insights how to approach technical challenges and broadened my interest in tech.

This was the best damn course I did in 20 years. I absolutely loved the hands-on session which gave me the needed confidence to start coding my own ideas. Technical stuff doesn’t intimidate me as much anymore.

The bootcamp was a great stepping stone. I did not only learn a programming language but gained a general better technical understanding. It helped me grow professionally.

In a rapidly digitizing world, having some basic tech skills and understanding of coding is essential to understand the world we do business in and the people we collaborate with. Master21 provided me with a very holistic introduction to programming and the toolkit necessary to independently translate imagination into code.

We organized an inhouse workshop because we wanted our non-tech people to get a better understanding. Master21 explained a complicated topic simply, with an ideal mix between theory and practice. The teachers shared their wide knowledge with patience, passion and humour. What a great insight into the world of code.
