What is 42?

42 Berlin is a coding academy that is changing what it means to learn. We educate students up to masters level and are open to beginners and advanced coders alike. Following the methodology of the #42Network, we take teachers out of the equation and ensure you truly thrive by means of Peer-to-Peer learning. This means that your fellow coders become your team rather than your competition, and you will learn the soft and hard skills needed to be both the student and teacher of the world around you. We practice radical inclusion and diversity; when you’re with us we ensure there is a constant feedback loop where your voice is always heard.

 

And the best bit? None of this will cost you a penny. Yep, our wonderful partner allows our NGO to provide you with high quality education and facilities, cost and bureaucracy free!

Why Choose the Major Tech Hub of Berlin?

There are other 42 campuses in Germany, so: Why choose Berlin?


During the last decade, Berlin’s creative scene has exploded. Berlin’s appeal to global talent makes it truly dynamic and a major tech-hub. With around 500 new tech startups per year, its startup scene is sky-rocketing. Berlin hosts numerous incubators, accelerators, and co-working spaces. All of these technologically-driven companies offer plenty of opportunities to kickstart a successful career in IT! Every 42 campus is built on the same foundational ethos, but daily functioning and specialised facilities are unique in each location. Our Berlin campus will offer you features you won’t find elsewhere. Located in a city where the hustle and bustle is unmatched.
