You’re standing in the shower or maybe sitting at your desk when it happens — that million dollar idea. But then your dreams are quickly dashed when you realize that you don’t yet have the technical chops to pull it off. We’ve all been there, and there’s hardly a feeling that’s more disappointing to an “ideas person” than not being able to see them come to life.
TNW and General Assembly want to help you overcome that pitfall by offering two £1,000 scholarships to GA’s Front-End Web Development course in London.
Have any doubts that you can cram this much information into a ten week course? Benji Lanyado built his wildly-successful Reddit Edit site as a prototype during the school, and he’s now stepped up to Ruby on Rails for his next project, a platform for interactive storytelling. Oh, and he built Reddit Edit with zero previous code experience.
On top of the direct education you’ll also have access to GA’s office hours, online material and ever-growing list of alumni. If you’re looking for a change of scenery, GA also touts a growing network of over 50 hiring partners. You’ll be invited to all GA Happy Hours, three free classes or workshops and you’ll have the chance to return to GA as a teaching assistant after graduation.
Tuition for the course is £2,500 in full, but £1,000 will get you well on your way. All it takes is a visit to this site, and a creative, 200-word answer to these questions:
- What excites you?
- What inspires you?
- What gets you out of bed in the morning?
