Get help picking a bootcamp

42 is a free coding bootcamp that originated in France. The school has a large campus in Fremont, where students must pass a four-week ‘Piscine’ coding challenge before attending full-time. There are no instructors at 42—instead, students learn online and with the help of their peers. Free housing is also available to some students, and the program is entirely tuition-free.

    Hi there, I can only comment on the “Piscine” intensive basic training program. It is indeed very intensive. It is also very social. I spent about 100 hrs a week in the lab and lived on campus (almost necessary to pass… don’t go if you can’t get into the dorms, even if you live in the area... Read More

    I currently attend 42 School @ Silicon Valley and I can’t speak highly enough about my experience. I attended the 30 intensive program in March and continued to the 3-5 year program starting in mid-April. The curriculum is self-paced and dependent on peer-to-peer learning, so it may not be a great... Read More

    Prior to attending the Piscine, I had approximately 2 months coding experience, from some online courses in Javascript and C. I think it helps to understand a little bit about the C language before starting the Piscine, but that being said, my experience helped me through maybe 2 or 3 days during my... Read More

    If you’re thinking about joining 42 I’m not going to flat out tell you to avoid it, but I will tell you to read all of this so you aren’t going in blind. If you get accepted for the Picine you will code for 26-ish days. You’ll be learning terminal commands for the first two days and then ... Read More

    I was a student at 42 for over half a year (around 7 months total). I am a student with Autism, and was having mental health problems which were greatly precipitated by the harrassment I experienced there from other students. Utlimately, I was basicallly kicked out of 42. The school took me to court... Read More

    I’m now an alumni of the 42 Paris School. I started the test called the piscine in March 2017 knowing nothing about programming. 1 year later I started receiving so many interesting job offers that I didn’t need to finish the program. This school not only teaches you how to program, it gives yo... Read More
