Programming for A Better Future

Our mission is to use coding and digital skills to enable inclusion and employment, and as a catalyst for social innovation and diversity.

The programme is combination between a coding bootcamp and a leadership course. It is based in Beirut and its mission is to get marginalised youth to participate in the growing needs of the local ICT and software sector.

Free School of Programming

Codi is a free school of programming for people who have a passion for digital and want to build a career in technology but cannot pursue a traditional university education. It is the first training centre to foster digital and technical skills for this youth in Lebanon.

Intensive 6-months Course

Codi, based in Beirut, offers a free and intensive 6-months programme to become full-stack web developers (front and back end), digital project managers… and many other digital professions which are in high demand today.

Open to Everyone

This programme, certified by Simplon.co, is open to everyone but primarily targeted to youth, who are not currently employed, with little academic background, and otherwise marginalised from society (incl. refugees).

Codi’s program is absolutely awesome. It’s the best and fastest way to learn full stack web
development and switch into a career in this domain. In 12 weeks, I learned far more than I was
able to teach myself over a year. The curriculum, the structure, and our amazing teachers make
this one of the most effective code and business learning experiences out there. And the fact
that I can now code my own product or idea from scratch, becoming my own developer,
emphasizing on best practices and clean code, is absolutely amazing. A big thank you for Codi,
for helping us and giving the Lebanese youth hope for a better future.

I’ve always been interested in computers since childhood, so I enrolled in Computer Engineering at the university.
After spending 3 years in the university and being jobless, applying to Codi was the best decision I have ever made.
Getting accepted into the program was the luckiest thing that ever happened to me.
In the course of less than 4 months, even though I’ve relearned most of the things I learned at the university, Codi gave it more value, because it’s in actual projects and not just pen and paper.
I’m not saying universities are useless, but for people who can’t afford to go or didn’t have the chance to stay in one or left for whatever reason, Codi is the best alternative since you learn here what you would at the university.
I also had the opportunity to meet people from different backgrounds, with no previous knowledge of coding, from different walks of life who are now capable coders.

I feel so blessed to have found and joined the Codi bootcamp.
Before joining Codi, I was finishing my 4th year in university doing BS in computer science. Joining Codi was a big challenge for me, because I had to learn to manage my time wisely.
At Codi you learn that code is not the must important thing when building software. Gathering information from the client and being on same ground with them is the most important thing. We learned using the methodology of Read-Search-Ask and because of this, I must admit that Codi changed my way of thinking. I believe that everyone can write code that machines can understand, but less people know how to write readable code. At Codi, we are succeeding in doing this.
