Refugees Code is a course on Front-End development and Web Design, under the umbrella of Madrid For Refugees, that aims to boost the work and social integration of asylum seekers in their new country: Spain.
The course consists of weekly lessons, exercises and projects. Materials are shared with students in advance and every week they are required to read, watch videos, and process the content along with some related exercises. Twice a week there are lessons where doubts are solved and exercises reviewed. Besides, students are encouraged to ask questions to our available teachers through Slack, a professional messenger app. There are also a set of complementary masterclasses to support the course and provide the students with wider knowledge on the methodologies used in the tech field.
It is provided by volunteer teachers that are highly qualified professionals in the field and are well integrated in the tech scene in Spain and Madrid.
