ASIA DEVELOPER ACADEMY
3 months full-time coding course / 6 months part-time
*Disclaimer: our promise isn't an over-promise!
ADA does not promise the illusion of producing Zero to Hero (proficient) coders, which we think is bull*h@t without ample time, training and practical experience. While others may claim to perform magic in mere weeks, we're not that brave, plus genius coders are super rare... Instead, ADA takes you from Zero to Competent in due time!
Graduates of ADA will steadily and surely learn the semantics of code to be able to pick up new and ever-evolving programming languages (or frameworks) easily later on in life, on top of learning how to troubleshoot code. They will possess the skills to develop their own applications with a focus on first building a strong foundation in problem solving, which is key to building competence, confidence and independence, wherever they go.
Our Mission and Belief
ADA, read as a word (not an abbreviation) in Bahasa Malaysia, means "GOT" or "HAS" in English. Our core mission in building this programme is to actively harness the finest coding talent in Asia to serve the ongoing digital revolution and bridge the obvious over-demand, under-supply skills gap many corporations, institutions and companies are facing today. We know there is talent out there to be discovered, planted and nurtured. And we aim to bring it on: Asia ADA Coding Talent!
