Your application starts with two online logic tests: one lasts 4 minutes and the other 2 hours. No programming skills are required to pass. Choose a quiet location with a good internet connection and take the test. In less than 48 hours, you’ll know if you have moved on to the next stage
During Check-in, you will spend half a day visiting the campus of 42 Lisboa, getting to know our team, the learning method, and other candidates like you. Throughout the year, you will have several Check-in dates allowing you to choose the one that suits you the most.
This is the last stage before joining 42. The Piscine is an intensive 4 week bootcamp in which you learn a lot about coding, teamwork, and about 42. It is the most challenging phase of the process, and those who pass it should be proud: they’ve just guaranteed the chance of a lifetime.
At 42 Lisboa you learn by doing. There are no books or theories for you to memorize. Here you have challenges to solve, your own way, with the collaboration of your peers. This way not only will you learn the technique, but you will also become autonomous and proactive while developing your innovation and problem solving skills.
The 42 curriculum was designed so that you have the freedom to develop skills on the the areas you are most interested in. After learning the basics of coding, you are free to choose the projects that allow you to master the subjects of your preference.
We all have different rhythms. While some of us are highly productive at night, others are higher performers in the early morning. That’s why 42 Lisboa is open 24 hours, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, so you can work at your own pace.
The 42 method was designed to develop several skills. Besides solid knowledge of programming, through group work and interactions from the community, you will have the opportunity to build your confidence and try out new things, all thanks to the people behind you, ready to support you.
