Founded by 19 year old CEO Yahya Bouhlel. After spending two summers in Silicon Valley working in startups, participating in hackathons and meeting successful entrepreneurs like Sam Altman (YCombinator), Eric Migicovsky (Pebble watch) and Jeremy Rossman (Make School)

Yahya was inspired to create a coding school in Tunisia that has the spirit, energy and creativity of Silicon Valley. He organized the first summer camp during the 2016 summer and it was very successful..

More than 200 students participated in our programs. Yahya is now working on developing Go My Code and making it the best technology school in Africa for those who want to build their own startup, start a career in technology or become a freelancer".

The mission of GoMyCode is to help these people understand technology and use it to pursue their dreams" Yahya Bouhlel, Founder&CEO of GoMyCode

MISSION/VISION

Empower our students to build their own startups

We aim at giving our students the opportunity to work on a product from design to monetization. This will allow them to face all the challenges that we can face when building a real-life startup. After attending our school, students will be prepared, inspired and motivated like never before to start their own business.

Empower our students to start a career in technology

Traditional schools are obsolete. Technology students are not prepared for a professional environment and lack a lot of practical knowledge and techniques. What is more, other-field students want to kickstart a technology career and don't find effective accelerated programs. To all students, we say, we are here to help you do what you love and pursue the career of your dreams.

Empower our students to work as independent freelancers

For our educational system, the word freelancer does not exist. However, studies predict that in 2030, one engineer in three will be a freelancer. Freelancing is already considered as a career choice. How to start freelancing ? How to make money ? How can I progress ? We answer all these questions and teach you the technologies you will need to kickstart your journey as a freelancer.

Instructor system

GMC is self learning based. However, we use instructors to accelerate the learning curve of our students. More than that, they are make it happen captains. They help our students learn best practices, create their products and finish them. They are also the ones who transmits our values of determination, passion, curiosity, respect and tolerance to students.
