React in Flip Flops is a knowledge-and-action-packed training course. Here, you and your team will learn more in a week than in months of self-study.
But don't take my word for it. See what previous bootcamp participants have to say about their experience:
Our format: 4 days of training and 2 days of hacking and building projects.
Over the first 4 days you will learn the best practices for building web applications with React in a series of presentations and coding labs.
The last two days will be a mega-hackathon. Working in teams, you will apply newly aquired knowledge to build a fully-fledged React application.
The bootcamp will kick off with a trip to the heart of the Gran Canaria and the sand dunes of Maspalomas to give us a chance to get to know each other better. To recharge our batteries in the evenings, we will take surfing and yoga classes, visit the Old Town for a tapas night and chill out together at the beach-front restaurants.
You will be surrounded by like-minded people and world-class experts who will always be there for you to help whenever you get stuck. Our bootcamp is a unique opportunity for you to focus on learning, make friendships that will last well beyond the bootcamp, and move your knowledge to the next level.
We created the most developer-friendly space in Las Palmas where your team can focus, learn and strengthen the team. With all distractions taken away, they will:
We will take care of your developers from the moment they arrive to Las Palmas until the last day of the bootcamp. We will spend long hours working. To recharge the batteries, we'll sample local tapas in the Old Town, do some surfing or body boarding, and go hiking in the heart of the island.
Your developers will return refreshed, with loads of bright ideas and a set of new skills, ready to use the newly-acquired know-how in your company's next project.
To me this is the most effective way of learning, by focusing 100% on React, combining training with practical implementation and a final project to combine all the new knowledge!!!

With plenty of accommodation, a bunch of coworking spaces with fast WiFi, amazing beaches, excellent surf conditions, and a mild climate, why wouldn’t we want to have a coding bootcamp in Las Palmas?
According to Weatherwise, Las Palmas has some of the world’s best weather with plenty of sunshine, and mild temperatures. The city also has a significant lack of tourist compared to the south of the island.
Soppa de Azul is different from any other co-working spaces. It is a magical place and an art gallery full of sculptures and paintings. This is where we are spending most of the day learning to code!
This unique space for creative people is located just 200m from the beach front, shops, a food market and restaurants. It offers not only desks to get your work done but also lecture room. Alecs, the owner, is a fascinating person, a painter and an entrepreneur - extremely helpful and responsive.
We'll meet at 8:45am to grab a cup of coffee and the class starts at 9:00am. We'll cover 2 topics before lunch and then cover another one or two in the evenining depending if it's a day with a longer break or not. Each topic will consists of the lecture and a following coding lab, when you will put into practice what you've learned. Instructors will assist you if you get stuck and will help you to move forward with the project.
By booking the camp you get:
Although the bootcamp starts on Monday, you may arrive already on Saturday if you want to join the hiking trip to the heart of the island and visit the Maspalomas' sand dunes. It's completely valuntary but the stunning interior of the island is a must-see. Check the video from our last trip..
We don't offer accommodation. Everybody has different expectations when it comes to sleeping arrangements. You can find a lot hotels, hostels and airbnbs on the Las Canteras beach front or a few hundred meters away from it.
