Frequently Asked
Questions

How will my typical week look like?

Every week, you will get a new study plan from your personal coach, which will consist of different skills, projects and coding challenges you can complete on your own time. In addition, you'll have weekly live session where your instructor will talk through a coding project, explain new concepts and answer questions.
Each week, you'll have multiple short calls with the rest of the study group to check in on each others progress and discuss potential roadblocks. In addition to the regularly scheduled sessions, you'll set up weekly 1:1 calls with your personal coach, where you can discuss concepts in-depth and talk about your weekly study plan.
Each month, we'll also host special community events, like Q&A sessions with famous developers or group hackathons.

Can I complete the program from anywhere?

Yes. You'll only need a computer with a microphone and a webcam as well as a fast and reliable internet connection. Ideally, you're in a European/African time zone to make sure you can attend live sessions and office hours.

Do I need coding skills to apply?

No, you don't. What's essential is that you're very motivated and have a strong interest in coding. While we'll work hard to get every student to the same level, the program has to keep moving, so your dedication is what matters.

Will the live sessions be mandatory?

No, they're not mandatory. We'll make sure to record all live sessions so you can watch them afterwards in case you can't make it.

Will you help me with hiring?

Yes. We provide career coaching and interview preparation. We'll do mock interviews with you and help you polish your online resume and portfolio, and facilitate introductions through our network.

How big will the cohorts be?

We're purposefully trying to keep our cohorts to around 10 people so we can fully support each student.

Why does this program focus on web development?

Web development continues to be the most in-demand area for junior developer roles. It also suits itself perfectly to our teaching methods and tools.

What if I already know how to code?

Great, you'll have a head start! Unless you already consider yourself a developer, you'll still get a lot of value from the program. You’ll still learn state-of-the-art technologies, best practices, development principles and workflows, and get help landing a job.

Can I really become an employable developer within 6 months?

Yes! As long as you stay motivated and spend around 20 hours per week, you'll be able to complete the program within 6 months. You'll still be able to finish the program if you invest less time on a weekly basis, but it will take you longer. Below you can see how long it typically takes students to finish:

20 hours per week — 6 months (to finish the program)
10 hours per week — 12 months

How does the program work?

The program is hands-on, but guided by instructors who combine teaching with their own projects and work. You'll develop your own projects, collaborate with fellow students, and practice on real-life projects from day 1. The best learning tool is feedback. There are no grades or exams, this is disruptive education focused on the real job market.

How much time do I need?

You should dedicate around 20 hours per week.

What kind of jobs will I be able to land after completing the program?

The typical job profile is frontend developer. Any website you visit and anything you see, click on, or otherwise interact with on it is the work of a frontend developer. As a junior frontend developer, you'll create the visible part of websites and web apps. You'll code the frontend and take care of debugging, too.

How much will I make in my first job?

According to Payscale, the average junior frontend developer salary is just under €43,000 per year. However, your entry-level salaries will depend on the type of company and the country you're located in. We’ve seen salaries range from €40k to €71k.

Do I need Mimo Pro to start Mimo Dev?

No, you don't. Mimo Dev is designed to be completed without using the Mimo mobile app, however, we think it's a great additional tool to practice when you're on the go. If you sign up for Mimo Dev, we'll give you free access to Mimo Pro as well.

Do you provide a computer?

We currently don't provide a computer to our students, so you'll need to have your own computer.

Can I cancel my subscription anytime?

Yes, you can cancel your Mimo Dev subscription anytime.
