We have three incredible bootcamps running in Iraq and Turkey
We don’t just admit individual students to our program; we curate a community of passionate developers from diverse backgrounds.

ERBIL BOOTCAMP '16
In partnership with Flatiron School, Re:Coded offered a 10 month full-stack web development bootcamp to refugees and displaced youth. Students also learnt English language training and soft-skills to prepare them for the job market. During this pilot program, Re:Coded was incubated at New York University's Center for Global Affairs.
SUMMER INTENSIVE '17
In partnership with IOM and the US State Department, Re:Coded ran an intensive 4 week summer coding bootcamp focused on game development for youth aged 12 - 18 years inside Qushtapa Refugee Camp, one of Iraq's largest refugee camps. The program was designed to educate and inspire youth with the skills to pursue academics and careers in STEM.
CURRENT RE:CODED FELLOWS
Meet the next generation of technology leaders
I'm from Erbil, Iraq. My favourite thing about programming is how it requires you to think outside the box. I love the fact that in programming, pretty much everything's possible, you just need to put your mind to it. As a developer, I'll always want to learn and grow in this field as it's constantly changing. I hope by the end of this program, a community for developers will exist where we can inspire others to code and can help each other.
I’m 22 years old from Damascus, Syria. I want to learn programming because I believe it's the future language. It’s amazing when you see your program running as well as you expected on your device - you feel that you did something good and you are ready to do it again! It's very joyful for me to be a Re:Coded fellow and it’s motivating and inspiring to be in this environment. Read more about her story here.
I was born and raised in Al-Hasakah, Syria. I am now learning to code as a Re:Coded fellow and I also volunteer for NGOs where I support children with special needs and those who have lost their parents in the war.My vision is to improve my coding skills so I can change careers. I’ve never attended anything like this where we are expected to learn on our own and then apply these skills in the classroom! Read more about his story here.

I’m originally from Raqqa in Syria and I moved to Turkey in 2013 because of the civil war. I participate in Re:Coded’s bootcamp, which really opens doors for people who have no clue about coding. When I think about the amount of usage of technology on a daily basis and variety of applications we can use, it makes me think that these tools can actually create a real change in people’s lives.
