## 1st Piscine in December 2020
42 Bangkok is a coding school like no other, completely free of charge and open to all with no prerequisites. You only have to be at least age 18 to apply. It offers full immersion in a program built to find and create the best programmers. Where people who code meet other people who code.
At 42 Bangkok, everyone deserves a chance to chase their goals and should be as free as they can be, without any limitations. We are dedicated to creating a place where financial walls no longer block education. That is why we want to let anyone from anywhere get training courses of quality in computer programming – for free.
42 Bangkok will take you on a leading programming journey at the cost of nothing.
The curriculum consists of a computer and you, that is it!
Get prepared for fun ride in the programming world, surrounded by others with the same interests and same goals.
I like all the people with different backgrounds from all over the world. I don’t have to feel inferior because my background was not in programming. And even people who are really good at coding don’t discriminate against you and are willing to help you.
42 opens a lot of opportunities because you learn more about yourself, what you can do, what you can handle. 42 taught me, don’t be afraid to fail, and to stand up and continue to go. Even if you fail you can still feel confident and it gives you some power. Knowing that everyone in your field has made mistakes before has taught me to not take it personally if I make a mistake.
I think it would have to be the piscine, and the PHP piscine I did about web development. You just get back to where you came from, which is knowing nothing. You have to be lost and go find out what you are doing by stumbling around and making a lot of mistakes. I think the piscine was the best part of 42 because you are really motivated to get into this place. I was coding 14 hours a day and completely disregarding my normal life.
