Our mission is to use coding and digital skills to enable inclusion and employment, and as a catalyst for social innovation and diversity.
We are a combination between a coding bootcamp and a leadership course, based in Beirut. Our aim 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 the youth in Lebanon. Our courses are open to everyone but primarily targeted to youth, who are not currently employed, with little academic background, and otherwise marginalised from society (incl. refugees).
Core Web Development 6-month Course
Our Core Web Development course offers a free, intensive 6-month programme to become full-stack web developers (front and back end), digital project managers & many other digital professions which are in high demand today. Apply now.
Computer Literacy 2-month Course NEW
Our latest course (launching April 2020) offers a free, 2-month programme aimed at marginalised youth who want to learn basic computer skills for employment and business purposes. Apply now.

At Codi, I met a large number of people from my fellow students in the cohort, to teachers and guest trainers. Each of them helped me learn more about programming and its challenges as well as helping me achieve a clearer perspective about my plan and goals in life. I worked on a great number of projects that are aimed to help people and formed long-lasting friendships at Codi.
I have completed the course at Codi and really enjoyed doing it.
I will forever cherish the experiences and skills that I gained from this bootcamp. I feel so fortunate that I had everyone at Codi to assist me in finding new job opportunities and preparing me for my first job. I don’t know where I would be without their support and guidance!
The course was very informative and provided some thought-provoking questions for me to ask myself.
Codi really helped me figure out what direction I wanted to go in in the future and now I have a job as a Software Developer!
Joining Codi was a life changing decision in my career. What distinguishes them is the diversity in the learning process. You aquire a variety of skills from programming, career tips and employment, whilst all working in a very friendly environment. Receiving job offers post graduation is an indication of a successful bootcamp that can kickstart your career. When you become a Codi member, you are not part of a workplace, you are part of a family!
Codi helped me understand how software development works. Thanks to Codi I am more confident now in planning the software projects, understanding the lifecycle of these projects, and assessing the possible risks revolving around implementing software projects. This all helped me get a job offer from my dream company even before I graduated!
Joining Codi was a total game changer for me. Codi is the whole reason that helped me enter the game development world and fulfil my dream of becoming a game developer. I truly thank you Codi for creating such amazing opportunities for us.
Apart from the main part of the course, we also learned people skill such as how to deal with customers and we participated in many workshops such as entrepreneurship. My own personal favorite workshops were about bank Audi and finance and how to do a speech in front of a large group of people.
Being a part of the Codi-tech family was a very beneficial and rich experience for me. It offered me opportunities to express myself, learn, gain knowledge and develop my personal and professional skills.
Codi changed the way I thought and provided me with the ‘complete package’ I needed, to pursue my career in the web development field.
Codi’s environment is so flexible and encourages independent learning. They encourage us to ask questions and help each other as a team.
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.
