Instructors and Teaching Assistants
Our instructors are really special people. Not only do they have professional experience and are masters in their respective subjects, but most importantly, they love to teach. They are there to learn from you as much as you will learn from them. The Teaching Assistants stay with you the entire length of the course and team up with the instructors to provide you with the necessary guidance to reach the finish line.

Senior Front-End Developer at Onedot AG
Llorenç was a Venture Capital analyst before he discovered coding. He then attended App Academy Development Bootcamp in San Francisco and became a full time developer. Apart from his job as a developer, he has been teaching and mentoring students in several coding bootcamps in Barcelona. He is currently in love with React and Redux.
Front-End Engineer at Ginetta
Colin is the ultimate bootcamp instructor: gourmet chef by trade, Python expert by profession. Colin has spent the last 10 years mastering the art of full-stack development through "learning by doing" and various commercial projects. A big fan of live coding and not slides, he is well-versed in a multitude of programming languages in addition to Python.
Ever since Daniele coded his first game while in high school, the passion for programming has never let go of him. After his MSc in Physics at ETH, during which he completed various Data Science projects, he has continued to follow his passion for coding, first working for an IT consulting company and then joining Propulsion as a student and now as Web Developer.
Although Ian's background is in Business and Finance, he started with fixing computers as a side business. He then decided to venture into programming by taking the Full-Stack Course at Propulsion. Having more than 10 years of experience in GNU/Linux along with his newfound skills in Full-Stack technologies, he is proudly the TA for Propulsion.

Class Structure and Campus Life
As a student at Propulsion Academy, get ready to go big! You will be immersed in a boot camp-style environment so expect to devote 40 hours in the classroom per week (with an additional 20-30 for course work) for lectures, exercises, and hands-on projects.
Unlike a traditional computer science education which is heavy on theory, our instructors give you a brief introduction of the concept at hand and then it’s straight to the exercises. It’s at this point that you become a “Hacker” by using any and all of your problem-solving skills.
In this process, you are not alone. The instructor is there to help and so are the teaching assistants. The magical part of the experience, however, is the bond you form with your fellow classmates who face the same challenges as you. Everyone works together to achieve the same goals and the relationships you form last a lifetime.
