Introduction to Javascript

Before learning the concepts of backend web development, you will spend three weeks getting familiar with the fundamental concepts of JavaScript, which includes basic syntax and data structures, working with array and object methods, ES6 syntax, asynchronous programming, etc.


  • Flow control
  • Arrays & Objects
  • Algorithmic thinking
  • Async programming

What you will build

After learning all those skills listed, you will be able to build various software applications, primarily focused on web development and scripting:

  • Understanding flow control arrays objects and algorithmic thinking, you can build dynamic web applications using JavaScript, build simple games, and handle user inputs, and events
  • Data manipulation and analysis tools such as simple data parsers and filters.
  • With async programming knowledge, you can build applications that interact with various APIs

Backend fundamentals

Writing backend code requires an intimate understanding of REST and the request-response lifecycle. You will start with how to build and run a local server with API endpoints using Node.js and Express.js, handle GET, POST, and other HTTP requests, perform validations and return a structured response before moving into more advanced topics.


  • Node.js & Express.js
  • SQL and other databases
  • CRUD and data models
  • API documentation

What you will build

This is when you really start adding the interactive elements that allow you to build genuine projects. Those skills will expand your capability to a wider range of applications and projects.

  • Creating full backend stack for Web applications using  Node.js & Express.js and Databases.
  • Build RESTful APIs to expose the functionality of your applications to other developers.
  • Live data Dashboards and real-time collaboration tools.
  • E-Commerce Platforms: develop simple e-commerce platforms that allow users to browse, search and purchase products.
  • Social media alpha platforms that allow users to share content and follow other users implemented with authentication, Nodejs, and database skills.

Backend Advanced Concepts

This is when it really starts to get tough, and all your logical sense and problem-solving skills will be tested. To build anything beyond small projects, you will need to master automated testing, learn about security and authentication, and we will even teach you how to deploy backends on cloud providers, such as Heroku and Amazon Web Services.


  • Authentification & Testing
  • Typescript
  • Architectural Design
  • Cloud Computing

Expanding your capabilities with the above skills will allow you to build more sophisticated and scalable applications

  • Secure web applications with authentication mechanisms such as OAuth, JWT, and Single Sign-on (SSO).
  • Typescript Application to write more maintainable and less error-prone Javascript code.
  • Utilize your testing skills to build applications using Test-Driven Development.
  • With your knowledge of Cloud computing, you can build serverless applications using platforms like AWS, Lambda, and Azure.
  • Task Management system that uses one of the latest frameworks in backend - Nestjs.

Capstone Project

Students work in teams of 4-5 guided by a trainer and apply their technical skills to design and build a responsive website which they showcase to prospective employers upon graduation.


  • Teamwork & collaboration
  • Communication
  • Project Management
  • Time management

What you will build

The capstone project encompasses idea generation, planning, teamwork, development, Agile practices, and presentation skills. Participants collaboratively design, code, refine, and showcase a project, acquiring practical experience in software development and project management, thereby preparing them for real-world challenges.

  • Capstone project

“I loved the Capstone phase! It really felt like we were working professionally for a client and presenting our project on graduation day in front of my family and friends made me really proud. I think that’s where they really understood what I could do with these skills”

From bootcamp to breakthrough, a unique framework I mastered with Re:Coded catapulted me into a job where my skills shone from day one. It was there I led a major project, guided by the strong foundation and the mentors I found through Re:Coded, making an impact that resonates throughout my career.


Transitioning from learning UX/UI design in the bootcamp to applying it in a real job has been a transformative journey for me. The skills and techniques I gained from the bootcamp have been crucial in comprehending and resolving user issues, making every day an opportunity to elevate my skills as a designer. In fact, my very first project directly led to me securing a full-time position. The bootcamp's extensive network and supportive community have proved to be an invaluable resource for me.

Marwa aman

Re:Coded didn't just teach me design; it helped me discover my path, turning my passion into a profession. The bootcamp enabled me to forge the connections and confidence that led me to a role I love, where I make a real difference.

Marwa aman

I still can’t believe I started working as a software developer in less than a year after I started to learn coding. I have a lot to learn in this position and I’m definitely happy about that. Absolutely, it wouldn’t be possible without Re:Coded.

"I have always been drawn to the creative process. I believe that good design has the power to improve people's lives and make complex systems more accessible, and I am eager to continue learning and growing as a designer."

"I made small squares using the wet mud [in the garden], with just the right amount of water to keep it rigid. Then they turned into mud persons with personalities and their own chairs and cars and houses. That’s design. That is my most precious memory of knowing that upon aging, creativity and design were to become my sense of life."

I have come to discover that my preconceived thoughts of the job market are completely flawed. One of the, if not the most lacking skill I lack is software development.This is exactly the sort of skills and knowledge I need to boost my value and help me grow.

I am planning to be a full stack developer because I enjoy writing codes and to increase my opportunities in finding a job. I also would like to meet new people and join communities of programmers, share experiences and learn from them.

Who is this bootcamp ideal for?

Maybe you’re trying to learn coding on your own but struggle to tie it all together. Maybe you’ve studied computer science but never really learned practical coding. Or maybe you feel stuck in a job that takes you nowhere and has this sense that learning how to code might exactly be the challenge and accelerated reboot you need. Not to mention in an industry you know is shaping our world and your future. Well, this coding bootcamp is for you!

Our curriculum to include a 4-week introduction to Javascript to make sure our backend bootcamp is accessible to people without advanced knowledge of coding. It does still require a love for logic, and any coding experience would be considered an asset, but not required. So you can jump into this bootcamp without a whole lot of experience - you just need the motivation to learn. 

Is it really free?

Yes! Like every other program at Re:Coded we are kindly supported by our donors. In the application form, you will be able to see which donor is supporting your bootcamp.

Why should I apply to this bootcamp instead of learning on my own?

Learning on your own is great, and we love it ourselves. But a bootcamp gives you something else. Instead of browsing around to learn bits and pieces whenever you can find time for it, a bootcamp gives you structure and support to take a leap forward in no time. 

A Re:Coded bootcamp also gives you something else. We want to support your leadership and collaboration skills by teaching you the fundamental soft skills essential to employers when they're looking for people to join their team.

Often the community among students, support, and soft skills training are among the things our students point out as truly unique and valuable parts of our bootcamps.

Who are your typical applicants?

First of all, you need to fit our selection criteria (see above), but apart from that, we aim for 50% women in our bootcamp to help support gender diversity in tech. While we do get quite a few applicants who graduated from computer science, engineering, and with other natural science degrees, we have had plenty of applicants who have learned coding on their own and quite a few who had such diverse backgrounds as teachers, bus drivers, etc. 

We prioritize people who are un- or underemployed.

Will this bootcamp help me find a job?

While nothing is ever guaranteed, we had a job employment rate of over 85% for our graduates depending on the program. We know that there’s more to getting hired than having a great portfolio and technical knowledge, and our curriculum includes built-in career development, so you can enter the job market confident and prepared. Not to mention that our Career Services team will support you for 6 months to help you land the job of your dreams.

What kind of job would I be able to land?

Common job titles of Re:Coded web development graduates include junior backend developer, backend developer, and full-stack developer, depending on your skills. Graduates have been hired at some of the top startups and companies across the region, and you can check salaries and current job opportunities on Glassdoor.

Will I earn a certificate?

Yes, if you complete the curriculum, participate actively in the live online classes, finish your assignment and fulfill your commitment to your classmates, you will receive a Re:Coded certificate at the end of the bootcamp.

‍What is the class schedule like?

Our live online classes are typically spread out over two nights during the week and a half day on the weekend. The exact time of the classes will be shown in the application form.

What does the selection process look like?

The selection process is highly competitive with hundreds of applicants for each bootcamp so it’s important you take the time to write a compelling application and explain why this is the right learning experience for you.

The application process is divided into three phases: the first phase is the application form where you get the opportunity to tell our team about yourself and explain your motivation to apply - it might take around 30-40 minutes to complete. 

If you meet the requirements of the bootcamp and you’ve submitted a great application, you’ll be sent a homework challenge to complete as well as a psychometric and logic test to measure your growth mindset, critical thinking skills, and level of perseverance. 

The final phase of the selection process is an interview with our admissions team to assess whether you’re the right fit for this course. 

In the end, we select between 35-70 people for a bootcamp depending on country and donor.

Why do you care so much about a student’s motivation to apply?

Going through a bootcamp is a big commitment. To your classmates, your trainers, and not least yourself. 

This bootcamp could be your ticket to advancing your career in the tech industry, but we won’t lie - there will be times when it’ll be tough. It’s a high-paced bootcamp experience, and you commit yourself to your classmates when collaborating on important projects.

We want to make sure we find the right candidates who are not only able and willing to go through the whole bootcamp but also to succeed when you land that dream job of yours.

Who shall I contact if I have questions about the Admissions process?

We’re doing our best to make your application process the best possible, but surely there is always room for approval or you might just have a question about your application.

Our Admissions team is always happy to answer any questions you may have! Please reach out to
