One of the things that best speaks of software development as a profession is the number of people who speak of it as a decision that changed their quality of life. It’s easy to see why: unlike other jobs, there is a demand for people who know how to code. The code is not something that is going to be obsolete in the next few years. On the contrary: we are going to need more and more people who know Java, C++ or Python. Learning development is now an increasingly popular decision for this reason.

The biggest problem, of course, is that many of the people who come to or want to learn development don’t have: the time to devote to a four- or five-year degree, plus the resources for an undergraduate degree in college (some haven’t even finished to pay first). The alternative in these cases are intensive courses such as the Holberton School, a software development academy that has created a program focused on people acquiring the practical skills they need, in a reasonable amount of time, without having to pay while they study and with the opportunity to go out and work in companies that give them their first experience.

Again, as the objective of these programs is to train those interested in programming quickly and effectively, it is an intensive program with a full nine-month curriculum and nine additional months to access the specialization curriculum. Are there requirements to apply or is some prior preparation required? You just have to be of legal age, there are no special requirements for entry, and it is independent of the socioeconomic status of the applicant.

This cohort begins in September 2022 and there is little time left for registration to close. The training is immersive and intensive, which is why you require an availability of no less than 60 hours per week. If you are a woman and you are in the departments of Chocó, Valle, Cauca and Nariño you will be able to access the scholarships available to learn software development that will allow you to receive 1SMMLV during your participation in the program.

Holberton School has a blended methodology, which makes it easy to study from anywhere in Colombia. Their payment model is also unconventional with the possibility that they can choose between different payment options to access the program according to their needs. For example, you can start making your contributions once the training is over and as long as your income exceeds 2.5 SMMLV by 2022. From that moment on, you must share 17% of your gross income with the academy for 42 installments. You will be able to pay for the training in monthly installments after completing the first 9 months of training. Or you can opt for a loan with 36 monthly installments.

Real stories from holbie software developers

The academy has about 90% employability. This is reflected in success stories in which its participants have managed to find employment in positions as software developers in national and international companies such as Globant, PSL, Endava, Encora, Ayenda, Bancolombia, Davivienda, Banco de Occidente, Mercado Libre, Rappi , Skillshare and Torre with average salaries above 4 million pesos.

For example, there is the story of Rubén Oliveros: a developer who, like many people, came from Venezuela looking for work and today is a developer of Neostella for Bancolombia. Rubén started in Colombia, like many others, he came to Colombia looking for work opportunities, with jobs in the construction area or call centers. He eventually found Holberton and thanks to the training system it offers he found the perfect opportunity to enter the world of technology and positively change his quality of life.
