Meet Marc-André, one of the first students of 42 Québec. At 30 years old, he decided to go back to school after seeing a publication about our computer science training on LinkedIn. We were curious to know more about his background.
Meet Sébastien, a student from the first cohort of May 2021. He learned about the campus in his early thirties from a staff member at the Centre communautaire et résidentiel Jacques-Cartier in Quebec. We were interested in learning more about his background.
Born to code
Some people may already know that programming is what they want to do in life, but others may not. At 42 Québec, we offer you the chance to find out. The Piscine is an opportunity to explore computer programming for a month and decide if one wants to commit to a 3-year training program.
An important thing to remember is that we do things differently. That attracts different kinds of people, from all walks of life. But they all share the same goal of learning, contributing to the wonderful 42 community we have today.
