Code of Conduct

Our manifesto

Codecool creates support unities for young people by launching them on a coding carieer.

We do this by:

  • We promote self-directed learning. We provide one-on-one mentoring , for those who need additional support.
  • We believe that hard and soft skills are equally important, thus, we help our students develop both.
  • We encourage teamwork and maximise multimodal learning: workshops, coding dojos, QA sessions, team meetings, retrospectives.
  • We treat students as colleagues to enable a smooth transition to working in a professional environment.
  • We implement an ** incremental approach** to learning.
  • We believe that real craftsmanship _ is an invaluable professional asset, that's why we aim for a **generalist_** skill set.
  • We provide knowledge in trending technologies.
  • We act transparently by giving and requesting feedback , measuring progress and setting realistic goals.
  • We demonstrate real life problems so the Codecool graduates will have experience with real clients, real projects, money, honey 🙂

Core values

What is expected from everyone?

  • Be Inclusive

    We welcome and support people of all backgrounds and identities. This includes, but is not limited to members of any sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, social and economic class, educational level, colour, immigration status, sex, age, family status, political belief, religion, and mental and
    physical ability.

  • Be Respectful

    We won't all agree all the time, but disagreement is no excuse for disrespectful behaviour. We will all experience frustration from time to time, but we cannot allow that frustration become personal attacks. An environment where people feel uncomfortable or threatened is not a productive or creative one.

  • Choose your words carefully

    Always conduct yourself professionally. Be kind to others. Do not insult or put down others. Harassment and exclusionary behaviour aren't acceptable. This includes, but is not limited to:
    - Threats of violence. - Discriminatory jokes and language.
    - Sharing sexually explicit or violent material via electronic devices or other means.
    - Personal insults, especially those using racist or sexist terms.
    - Unwelcome sexual attention.
    - Advocating for, or encouraging, any of the above behavior.

  • Make differences into strengths

    We can find strength in diversity. Different people have different perspectives on issues, and that can be valuable for solving problems or generating new ideas. Being unable to understand why someone holds a viewpoint doesn’t mean that they’re wrong. Don’t forget that we all make mistakes, and blaming each other doesn’t get us anywhere. Instead, focus on resolving issues and learning from mistakes.

  • Don't harass

    In general, if someone asks you to stop something, then stop. When we disagree, try to understand why. Differences of opinion and disagreements are mostly unavoidable. What is important is that we resolve disagreements and differing views constructively.

  • Be Confident
