FooCoding: Newcomers is a course in software development run by the Foo Café Foundation. The six month program gives immigrants and newcomers the skills they need to work as fullstack web developers in Sweden.
Our ambition is to integrate people struggling to find work in Sweden into the world of tech. Professional programmers volunteer to teach the course.
The Foo Café Foundation works with graduates to connect them to our network of company partners. We arrange speed datings and meetings between students and companies looking to hire fullstack developers.
Together with HackYourFuture in Amsterdam, we have developed a curriculum suitable for our students and the demands of the Swedish tech industry.
Since the start in 2017 we have supported five classes and all of the graduated students have a job.
Next FooCoding: class in Stockholm will start around September/October.
You apply to the course through the FooCoding: webpage.
We believe in being socially responsible. That’s why we are so strongly committed to this project. But in all honesty - running FooCoding: is a costly dedication for us. We need sponsors to be able to continue our work.
