Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need previous experience to participate in the programme?

No. This programme is for complete beginners. You will learn everything from the ground up.

I already have experience. Is this the right programme for me?

Maybe. We've had the experience from past programmes, that even people with some previous knowledge can take away a lot from the programme. This is because we explain the concepts in depth, and our experienced developers can answer detailed questions. To make the decision, ask yourself how well you know the following concepts:

  • Variables
  • Functions/Methods
  • if/else
  • Loops
  • Classes
  • Automated testing with JUNit 5
  • Optionals
  • Exceptions, reading/writing files
  • Java 8 Streams
  • Maps, Sets, Enums
  • Interfaces
  • Inheritance
  • Version control: Git and GitHub

Even if you've seen some of these concepts before, if you feel like you still need a more thorough explanation on them, and want to dive deeper into Java, this program might still be right for you.

Can I have a full time or part time job during the programme?

No. This course requires an intense 40h/week commitment. If you apply for the course, you confirm that you will be available to attend the course full-time.

I am not in Vienna! Can I take part?

No. The course will be held in Vienna. If you apply for the course, you confirm that you will be available to attend this 40h/week course in person at our premises in Vienna.

Will I be able to find a job afterwards?

Upon successful completion of the programme you will be equipped with all the necessary tools and knowledge to start an internship or trainee programme as a Junior Software Developer.

20 seats

I am not registered at AMS as unemployed (“arbeitslos”). Can I still take part?
