Lambda School X Paystack Bootcamp by thatareaguy: 11:01am On Apr 29, 2019

Lambda School partners with Paystack to pilot Africa expansion. Candidates from Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa can apply to receive a world-class full stack developer education - at no upfront cost.

We're thrilled to announce that we've partnered with Lambda School to provide a world-class full stack developer education - at no upfront cost - to 10 candidates from Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa!

During the program, Paystack will pay for membership to co-work spaces wherever students are, so that they have access to reliable electricity and internet with which to excel at the program.

After the program, students have the chance to be hired by Paystack, and we'll also introduce students to the many Paystack merchants (including many of the best companies in Nigeria) who're looking for development talent.

What is Lambda School?

California-based Lambda School trains people to be software engineers with live interactive classes, at no up-front tuition cost. Instead, students have the option to opt into an Income Share Agreement where they pay a fraction of their future income. This is no mere code camp, though.

Lambda School provides an immersive 9 month training in full stack web development, delivered via real-time online classes. The expert curriculum is designed and taught by instructors from Google, Apple, Blizzard, and many more from some of the best technology companies on the planet. In many cases, Lambda instructors literally wrote the textbooks others teach from. And if you get stuck at any point, there's instant, one-on-one help whenever you need it.

Lambda's quality of instruction is matched only by its strong focus on the employability of graduates. 86% of Lambda graduates are hired within 180 days of completing the program, and it's no exaggeration to say that the Lambda has quite literally transformed the lives of hundreds of people.

Lambda School launched about two years ago in the US, and recently opened its doors to students from the European Union. And now, in partnership with Paystack, Lambda School is accepting applications from for the first time from students in Cote d'Ivoire, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and South Africa!

Why Paystack x Lambda?

Paystack and Lambda share a lot in common. We're both alumni of the Y Combinator Accelerator and we both raised funding from Stripe, the payments giant whose mission is to increase the GDP of the internet.

Most importantly, both Paystack and Lambda School are obsessed with figuring out how to give everyone the tools they need to build their dreams. While Lambda does this by removing barriers to a career-changing education, Paystack does this by providing growth and payments tools to help businesses in Africa scale. Although we come at it from different directions, we're united in our desire to amplify human potential, and we're excited to join forces to work together to do exactly that.

TLDR
* 9-month full stack boot camp with no tuition. See the curriculum here.
* At the end of programme, you could be hired by Paystack.
* You'd have to pay a portion of your salary if you get a job after the programme. Otherwise (if you don't find a job or can't reach the minimum income level), you don't have to pay anything.
See the FAQ for more.

Okay, I am sure that youre a Nigerian and u understand the sum of data dis will consume. Hence if i may ask, whats the average sum of data someone will consume in a week for the training and whats the cost analysis... Mind you, i understand the benefits quite well and im willing to go into this if only i can understand the cost of data and timing. I have applied for user experience and im hoping to be admitted... Kindly drop your contact as i will need you to be my mentor... Thanks for your understanding and time.

It's very saddening I'm learning about this late. I wanted an opportunity like this, but then, it's gone.
I await further or future admissions.

I applied but got a regret response from them just yesterday. I caused it. I submitted my application twice.

I don't think the final selection has been made yet. Anyone who applied already knows whether he/she proceeded to the next round of consideration though.
