Following the two-week Genesis program, the selected candidates who become participants are considered fully qualified to take part in the following 14-week Odyssey program. A new theme is introduced weekly, and deliverables based on specific requirements are due at the end of each week. The program is fast-paced and highly demanding on many levels. It is a combination of individual contributions and team work. There are no traditional lectures or classroom teaching, although hands-on guided learning resources are provided. You will be teamed up with a coach who will be in charge of assisting you during the entire course of the program. On some weekly projects you will work in teams composed of 5 to 6 other participants. For other weeks, you will be assigned individual challenges. Some projects include a workload that will simply be too hefty to be handled by one individual, and it will have to be broken down and distributed among team members. Collaboration during these assignments will enable you to contribute to the success of a team and will most importantly develop your ability to trust others and get the most out of your teammates to deliver quality solutions and maximize your ranking.
When it comes to time commitment and the imposed schedule of the training, it is impossible to provide a precise number of hours per week because of the nature of the program. A participant with past experience developing and using the technology we chose might be able to produce quality deliverables within 30 hours, while someone entirely new to these concepts might need to invest up to 80+ hours of work. We put a special emphasis on commitment: CodeBoxx is a boot camp, an intensive one, and it will require focus and dedication. You will be transformed in many ways once the program has completed. You will have to dedicate 100% of yourself to the program for its entire duration.
Obviously, we took that specific reality into consideration when we designed our state-of-the-art classroom. Various functional areas are at your disposal to allow you to get the most out of your presence and optimize your performance and productivity. Special efforts were made to allow you to focus on your tasks. We provide individual and collaborative workspaces, a kitchen, an entertainment area (ping pong, televisions, consoles, foosball, virtual reality, etc), as well as a rest area with beds and work tables that have all been designed for your comfort. You also have access to our meeting rooms and our auditorium where our conferences and presentations are held, as well as the gym located within the building.
