Our graduates said

"Green Fox was a very good opportunity for me to finally do something I had long wanted. I could learn useful things, and my life got a huge boost in a positive direction. I recommend it to those who are determined, never give up, and know what they want to achieve. It has also helped me become a part of a community of people with similar interests. After Green Fox I started working as a C ++ developer, and even though I learnt web development at the course, I was able to become knowledgeable in this technology, too."

"Green Fox was a very important period of my life, not only has it changed my career, but also my self-knowledge has grown so much that I can work in a new environment. It’s a very motivating place to go to make your brain get tired so that by going home you become more than you were in the morning. Green Fox helped me to get through the gates of the developer labor market, so that I could start a new profession I chose as my second career."

"After Green Fox I went to NOKIA and I feel I found my place. Thanks to the company I have a transparent career path, I regularly talk to my manager about my future. I got lots of good things from Green Fox to get started, both professionally and personally. It gave me marketable knowledge and guided me from start to finish. However, success also requires determination and humility at work. In fact, changing careers is like top-class sport: if you don't keep doing all you can do, you won't succeed."

"The best thing about Green Fox was the focused mindset of the whole course, the syllabus, the mentoring and the insights outsiders may not get. I used to write codes before Green Fox, but I couldn't find the focal points that the course drew my attention to. This was I exactly needed to make a career change. I was able to find a job right after the course, I haven't changed since then, because I feel like I've found my place."

Build your IT career. With us.

Their IT career stared 4 years ago. This is where they are now.

Basic information

A képzés végére junior szintű programozói tudást szerzel, valamint sok-sok gyakorlatot valós projekteken és különböző technológiákban. Végzett hallgatóink az alábbi területeken helyezkednek el:
Backend
Frontend
Desktop
DevOps
Full-Stack
Mobile
Embedded
Data Science
Quality Assurance

MILYEN HOSSZÚ A PROGRAM?
A képzés teljes hossza nettó 4 hónap, plusz 2 hét szünet. (Heti 5 nap, napi 8 óra, hétfőtől péntekig)

MENNYI IDŐT VESZ IGÉNYBE?
A képzés időtartama alatt szinte mindet. :) Nem kertelünk: ha négy hónap alatt szoftverfejlesztővé szeretnél válni, akkor az komoly elköteleződést jelent. Az oktatás maga hétköznapokon reggel 9 és délután 6 óra között zajlik, viszont sokszor előfordul majd, hogy az iskolai munka otthoni előkészületeket kíván meg.

A képzés mentori keretrendszerű oktatási formában zajlik. Ez a gyakorlatban azt jelenti, hogy csupán az órák 10 százaléka lesz klasszikus előadás, a többi mentorok által vezetett csoportmunka. A képzés teljes időtartama alatt feladatok megoldásával folyik majd a tanulás. Az első két hónapban bevezető, gyakorló jellegű feladatokkal dolgozik a csoport, az utolsó két hónapban pedig a partnercégektől kapott valós projektekből vett mintaprojekteken.


A képzés folyamán azonban nemcsak a kódolásra koncentrálunk, hanem nagy hangsúlyt fektetünk az olyan soft skillek fejlesztésére is, mint a kommunikációs és prezentációs készség, illetve az együttműködés, csapatjáték. Fontosnak tartjuk, hogy hallgatóink könnyedén megállják a helyüket jövőbeni munkahelyükön, ezért két, teljes állásban erre dedikált szervezetpszichológus foglalkozik velük.

A kurzus teljes hossza alatt tréningeken és coaching alkalmakon vesznek részt, illetve péntekenként egyéni és csoportos prezentációk keretében számolnak be a mentoroknak és a partnereinknek az aktuálisan elsajátított tudásukról.

Képzéseink néhány havonta indulnak, neked pedig mindig az aktuálisan soron következőre van lehetőséged jelentkezni.

A következő kurzus indulása: 2018. május 7.
Jelentkezési határidő: 2018. március 25.

Felvételi eredmények: pár nappal a felvételi utolsó lépcsője után, legkésőbb április 6-ig

A felvétel folyamatosan zajlik, tehát minél hamarabb jelentkezel, annál nagyobb esélyed van bekerülni! ;)

HOL LESZ AZ OKTATÁS?
1062 Budapest Andrássy út 66., 2. és 3. emelet

HÁNY FŐT VESZÜNK FEL?
Egy tanulócsoport létszáma 15-21 fő.
Egy kurzus alkalmával 3 csoportot indítunk.

A képzésben való részvételnek nincsen semmilyen klasszikus képzési előfeltétele. Az egyetlen dolog, ami nélkül biztosan nem tudunk felvenni, az az ANGOLTUDÁS.​

Miért fontos ez?

Azért, mert a képzés tananyagának nagy része angol nyelven érhető el, illetve péntekenként a demók/prezentációk is angol nyelven zajlanak. A nyelvvizsga nem kötelező.
Ami előnyt jelenthet a felvételinél, de nem kritérium: ha már van egy diplomád, legyen az bármilyenha már próbálkoztál önállóan kódolással, esetleg részt vettél valamilyen online kurzuson ... és fontos, hogy életkori határ nincs. :)

A képzés sikeres elvégzése után segítünk munkát találni. Az elhelyezkedésre nem vállalunk garanciát, de aggodalomra semmi ok: a nálunk végzettek 96%-a programozóként dolgozik! Jó, ha tudod: a partnercégeinknél ugyanazon a felvételi folyamaton mennek végig a hallgatóink, mint a bármely más iskolapadból érkező juniorok.

A Green Fox Academy által kiállított oklevelet, amely igazolja majd, hogy sikeresen megfeleltél a kurzus követelményeinek, és letetted a záróvizsgát. Fontos tudnod: a képzés nem államilag akkreditált, így nem állíthat ki akkreditált bizonyítványt. Ezen nem is tervezünk változtatni, mert az akkreditációs folyamat nem tenné lehetővé, hogy mindig a legfrissebb technológiákat taníthassuk nektek. Mi abban hiszünk, hogy a megszerzett tudás igazi értékét az mutatja, hogy legkiválóbb hallgatóink azonnali munkalehetőséghez juthatnak.

1. What is there to know about the Study loan and how can it help to finance the course?

Students who have enrolled to our Junior developer courses are eligible to apply for Study loan 1 and Study loan 2 at the Student Loan Center, given that they are between 18 and 55 and have a registered address, as well as, if they are eligible for a permanent residency due to their EU or EEA citizenships, or they are refugees, residents or have an immigration permit.

The freely disposable Study loan 1 can be spent on anything, and it is transferred to the student on a monthly or half-yearly basis, in about the two weeks from the application for the first time. You can apply for a monthly amount between 15,000 and 150,000 HUF. In case of our full-time courses the maximum is 5 months, 750,000 HUF and in case of our part-time course the maximum is 11 months, 1,650,000 HUF. The yearly interest rate is 1.99%, without any further fees. See details →

The interest free Study loan 2 covers tuition up to 500,000 HUF in case of adult education and can be applied for on or anytime after the first day of the course. The requested amount is transferred to the institution directly. See details →

If you choose the instalment plan you cannot cover the first instalment directly from a Study loan, as instalments are due appr. 2 weeks prior to the start of each module. Unfortunately you can apply for a Study loan on or after the first day of the course. Although you can cover the other two modules by Study loan 2 or even by Study loan 1.

If you choose the prepaid package you cannot cover tuition directly from the Study loan, because the whole amount is due appr. 2 weeks prior to the start of the course. Unfortunately you can apply for a Study loan on or after the first day of the course. In this case application for the interest free Study loan 2 would be inapplicable, however, you could still apply for a freely disposable Study loan 1.

If you choose the income-share postpaid package you can decide to make an initial pay-off before the end of the course, for instance, but not exclusively by making use of a Study loan.

  • If you make a payment of at least 500,000 HUF before the end of the course, for instance by the help of Study loan 2, the whole amount of the tuition decreases to 2,090,000 HUF in case of on-campus courses, and to 1,790,000 HUF in case of online courses.
  • Furthermore, if you make a payment of at least 1,250,000 HUF before the end of the course, for instance by the help of Study loan 1 and 2, the whole amount of the tuition decreases to 1,990,000 HUF in case of on-campus courses, and to 1,690,000 HUF in case of online courses.
2. What kind of skills will you acquire?

By the end of the course you will have junior level programming skills and lots of experience in different technologies. In the second half of the course you can specialize in the following areas.

  • Back-end
  • Front-end
3. Why programming?

There is a huge demand for programmers both nationally and globally due to the enormous technological advancements of recent decades. Also coding is more and more becoming an essential skill, like speaking English. We suppose that anyone can learn to code, and the most dedicated can get to a level in only a couple of months, with which they can land a more than well paid job.

4. How does the selection process go?

In order to join our course, you'll have to go through an application process, where we look at your motivation and test your cognitive abilities through some online games. It's necessary because we'd like make sure that you're going to be able to complete the course.

1. Application
Are you ready to change your life? Then submit your application! The same selection process applies to every prospective student, however, those who choose prepayment will be given priority.

2. Video interview
A few days after submitting your application we will send you a link to a video interview, where you need to answer some questions on your mobile or through a web camera.

3. Online test
Along with the video interview you will receive an online test that will help us evaluate your cognitive skills. You will be asked to use an online test that only takes 30 minutes. Don't worry, your IT skills will not be tested.

4. Interview
We will inform you shortly after you complete the video interview and the test if you have made it to the next round. If you are successful, we will schedule a personal interview to find out more about you.

5. Simulation
If you successfully pass the interview, there is only one step left: participation in an hour long simulated group class, where we check applicants’ digital literacy. Good luck! :)

5. What kind of teaching methodologies do we apply?

Our goal at Green Fox is to create an environment that is similar to the one, in which you will find yourself when you start to work afterwards. So our teaching methodology focuses on solving challenges. Our students work on tasks in the first half of the course, and on the development of complex projects in the second half.

Work takes place within a mentoring framework. In practice, this means that only 10 % of the time is taken up by lectures. The remaining 90% consists of individual and group-work, led by mentors.

We apply the blended classroom methodology, meaning traditional classroom techniques are mixed with digital solutions. There are video based materials that are to be processed individually by the students, followed by mentor supported individual and group-work.

In case of our online courses we use applications that should be familiar to the students, therefore there is no need to learn to use new platforms. For material reviews we mainly use Zoom, where you can share your screen. The rest of the time you work in smaller teams, each team is provided with a Discord room, where you can collaborate live on your work.

6. What kind of preliminary qualifications are required?

You're required to have completed secondary education to be able to join the VAT-free courses. Also you need to have at least an intermediate level of both spoken and written English. This is very important, as in the English-speaking class the syllabus will be presented in English, and student demos/presentations will also be expected to be given in English. No proof of having passed a relevant language exam is required.

Although not required, it will be to your advantage during the admission process if you can prove you have a degree of any kind, have tried coding, or have participated in any online course.

7. What happens after the course?

Until starting your new job you can deepen your coding knowledge for 10 more weeks through working at our internal development community, called Húli. Please be prepared, that finding a job in a totally new field can take up to 4-6 months.

In case you want us to help you find placement, you can buy our 'Career services with 50% guarantee' package until the end of the Orientation module, which costs 350,000 HUF / £ 850 + VAT. (Attention! Our course is VAT-free, but unfortunately you have to calculate with the VAT for this package.)

8. What kind of qualification will you receive?

As a registered adult education institute in Hungary, Green Fox Academy (Adult education permit number: E/2020/000006) issues a certificate that warrants that you will have fulfilled the requirements of the course and passed the final exam. This certification will make you eligible for taking a professional exam and thus acquire a qualification accredited by the Hungarian State. Our courses provide the necessary knowledge for taking the professional exam.

Syllabus

The course is split into 3 modules. You can learn through Java and Spring technologies, while specialise in Back-end development during our on-campus full-time and online part-time courses; and learn through JavaScript technology and specialise in Front-end development during our online full-time course starting in spring 2022.

Foundation module

The Foundation module focuses on the basic concepts of different algorithm implementation, while using programming languages. It also introduces students to all of the necessary tools for creating programs, including editors, IDE-s, command lines, and version control systems, such as Git. The curriculum is mostly language-independent, and focuses on the universal building blocks of programming languages, such as expressions, loops, conditions, functions and data structures. At the end of the module, participants should be able to create a simple 2D graphical game that consists of a tile-based maze and a character that can be controlled using the keyboard.
Detailed Foundation module thematic

Main Topics

  • Command Line
  • Version control
  • HTML, CSS basics
  • Editors
  • Git, GitHub
  • Expressions
  • Control flow (loops and conditions)
  • Functions
  • Data-structures (arrays, lists and maps)
  • File handling
  • Modules and imports
  • Unit tests
  • Drawing
  • Object Orientation
  • Game Project

Java (On-campus full-time and online part-time courses)

This module will help you learn the basics of Java, which is one of the most popular languages in the world. All of the exercises and materials are based on this language. It is a good language through which you can start becoming familiar with programming and the tech realm. It provides a strong foundation for Java back-end or Android development later on, although it is also possible to switch to any other technologies.

Following path:

  • Spring

JavaScript - TypeScript (Online full-time course)

Initially JavaScript is simpler than the languages mentioned above, but it does become more difficult as you go along. It is probably the easiest language for learning the foundations of programming. Its Object Oriented aspects are very different from other core OO languages, such as Java or C#. Therefore we use TypeScript, a JavaScript based language developed by Miscrosoft, for introducing object orientation in this module. This technology is best when you want to focus on front-end or full-stack development, but it is possible to continue on other paths, as well.

Following path:

  • Full-Stack JavaScript

Orientation module

This module allows you to dig deep into specifics of the technological field. You will learn web development on the server or client sides. During this period, you will start using technologies that are applied in real-life development activities. Upon finishing this module, you will be able to look at ongoing development projects.
Detailed Orientation module thematic

Spring (On-campus full-time and online part-time courses)

Spring, one of the most popular web frameworks in the Java realm, will help you learn the basics of building back-end applications that run on a server. It's a good foundation for learning about back-end development, Android development and DevOps. At the end of the module, the participant should be capable of creating an interactive web application that can be connected to a database.

Main topics

  • Java streams, lambda expressions
  • Gradle
  • SQL
  • Spring Boot
  • Thymeleaf
  • MVC
  • ORM
  • REST
  • Bootstrap
  • Heroku

Following path:

  • Back-end

Full-Stack JavaScript (Online full-time course)

Full-Stack will help you learn how to create web applications using JavaScript, including front-end and back-end web development using Node.js on the server side and vanilla JS on the client side. We intentionally do not introduce any front-end frameworks during this period. It is a good foundation for the Full-Stack, Front-end and DevOps specialization in the Project module. At the end of orientation, the participant should be capable of creating an interactive web application that is connected to a database.

Main Topics

  • Callback
  • Promise
  • Advanced HTML and CSS
  • CSS Grid
  • DOM
  • SQL
  • Node.js
  • Express
  • MVC
  • REST

Following paths:

  • Front-end

Project module

In the last period of the course participants are split into 3-4 person groups, and each group is assigned with a project that has to be delivered by the end of the module. Participants learn the technologies on their own, but Green Fox Academy, of course, provides guidance. We consult with our clients regarding the technologies they currently use, and incorporate these technologies into our projects.

After the course, until starting your new job you have an option to deepen your coding knowledge for 10 more weeks through working at our internal development community, Húli Community. Here you will face circumstances that are customary at your future workplace, therefore you can experience the everyday joys and struggles of an IT professional.

Trainings, coaching sessions

Becoming a developer is half a success without soft skills

During the course we not only focus on coding, but also on the development of soft skills, including communication and presentation skills, stress management, collaboration and teamwork. We suppose it is especially important that our students feel confident in their future workplaces, so each class at Green Fox is assigned a dedicated psychologist. Students take part in training and coaching sessions as needed, and present their knowledge to our mentors and / or our partners in individual and group presentations.
