Web Apps Our Students Invented

With the power to code, students come together to build amazing app ideas as they explore technology, functionalities and features beyond our curriculum.

Please keep in mind that all students have completed Frontend Web Development with HTML, CSS & JavaScript and/ or React JS to be able to build these apps.

Frequently Ask Questions

What can I do at the end of the program?

Our graduates either start their own companies or work at some of the most exciting venture-backed startups. Some preferred to freelance and maintain the freedom to choose what they work on without committing to one single thing for a longer period of time. As a software developer, there's always something new to learn – either a new technology, a new way of doing things or just a new feature that you've never implemented before.

Unlike other courses that teaches you specific technology (making you only as good as what you learn from the course), NEXT Academy's Web Development Bootcamp was designed such that you would have learned all the right fundamentals to be able to build and learn anything new without dependence on anyone else.

Please keep in mind that all students must have completed Frontend Web Development with HTML, CSS & JavaScript as well as React JS before embarking on to this module.

What is the job prospect like for Web Developers? And how will NEXT Academy help me?

Software Developers in general are extremely in demand all over the world. There is currently a huge shortage of skilled software developers and this will continue for decades to come. Not just that, the rise of new jobs require some level of coding as well - e.g. data science, machine learning, A.I.

The shortage is caused by 2 reasons. One being fewer university students pursuing studies in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. The second and more important reason is how technology is being used to disrupt all industries from agriculture to transportation to retail. NEXT Academy has links with many technology startups across the region and will attempt to connect our talented graduates with the best startups.

Please keep in mind that all students must have completed Frontend Web Development with HTML, CSS & JavaScript as well as React JS before embarking on to this module.

I want to start a company. Will I be able to start a company after learning to code at NEXT Academy?

Yes and no.

Starting a company is hard. This is not a discouragement of entrepreneurship but a mere disclosure of the harsh reality of starting up. You will definitely be able to build your own MVP and save time and hundreds of thousands of dollars in hiring a freelance developer to build something for you. The skills you learn at NEXT Academy will also help you in hiring people you want to work with. And most importantly, at NEXT Academy, you will meet some of the brightest and most passionate individuals that you can collaborate with or hire.

Please keep in mind that all students must have completed Frontend Web Development with HTML, CSS & JavaScript as well as React JS before embarking on to this module.

Will I be able to work remotely as a software developer?

Software development is one of the best skills to have if you wish to work remotely. There are many jobs out there that permits software developers to work remotely. However, you will find it much easier to find a remote job after a few years of experience. There are certain cases where our graduates were able to find a consistent stream of freelance jobs that allowed them to work from home.

Please keep in mind that all students have completed Frontend Web Development with HTML, CSS & JavaScript as well as React JS before embarking on to this module.

Will I be able to work in any other country as a software developer?

Yes. It just depends on your citizenship and your desired country's work visa policy. It defers from country-to-country.

Please keep in mind that all students must have completed Frontend Web Development with HTML, CSS & JavaScript as well as React JS before embarking on to this module.

Can I freelance as a software developer after the program?

Assuming you are committed and you work hard during your time at NEXT Academy, yes, you certainly can. However, we advise our graduates to be honest about their level of expertise. There will be clients who are willing to hire juniors and will be more understanding. The last thing you want as a freelancer is a mismatch of expectations. But worry not, as a freelancer, you'll be forced to learn so fast that you will be pretty senior in a short period of time.

Please keep in mind that all students must have completed Frontend Web Development with HTML, CSS & JavaScript as well as React JS before embarking on to this module.

How much do software developers earn in Malaysia and around the world?

The salary rate for Software Developers in Malaysia depends on the industry and kind of company you are in. Traditional companies typically pay much lower. However, after our program, if you choose to work in a startup as a junior software developer, you can expect around 30% above traditional market salary rates. It's trickier to estimate if you have had prior working experience in a non-related field. In cases like this, it depends on the discussion between you and your potential employer.

Please keep in mind that all students must have completed Frontend Web Development with HTML, CSS & JavaScript as well as React JS before embarking on to this module.

Do I need to know anything before I learn to code at NEXT Academy?

Yes. You should have completed Frontend Web Development with HTML, CSS and JavaScript and/ or React JS.

What can I learn in 6 weeks? Is it enough?

6 weeks is an extremely short period of time. But as a yardstick, a world class junior software developer is someone who can build things independently of others and have the ability to learn new technology with ease.

Please keep in mind that all students must have completed Frontend Web Development with HTML, CSS & JavaScript as well as React JS before embarking on to this module.

How does NEXT Academy compare with shorter courses available elsewhere?

From the feedback given by graduates of other shorter courses, they learned nowhere near what they were promised. We are aware that a lot of academies out there attempt to sell people something that already appeals to most people's lifestyle and budget. They charge less and minimize the duration of their program to appeal to people's taste in order for their academies to be highly profitable. There are probably exceptions. But to achieve anything great, sacrifice is needed. There were no cases where great people achieve great success with minimal sacrifice. NEXT Academy has a strong track record of graduates achieving great results and is dedicated to continuing the excellence without wavering standards. Our program isn't designed for everyone and only the hungriest and brightest people tend to join us.

Why is the course so cheap?

Compared to similar bootcamps around the world, we are considered one of the most affordable bootcamps available globally that have churned out graduates who are currently working in startups, SMEs and MNCs locally or globally.

Compared to many coding courses out there, our course provides a high touch with mentors, the total learning hours are definitely a lot longer than the usual courses which are available in the market.

We wanted to make this bootcamp, which was inspired by bootcamps in Silicon Valley, accessible to as many as possible so that we can make an impact in the tech ecosystem within this region.

Why is the course so expensive?

Many coding courses charge less and minimize the duration of their program to appeal to people's taste in order for their academies to be highly profitable. Furthermore, many of these courses have low touch point with the mentors or instructors.

Our bootcamp was inspired by bootcamps in Silicon Valley. In fact, the founder went to a similar bootcamp many years back and was astonished by the quality of the teaching.

We wanted to make our bootcamp accessible to as many as possible. We are glad to see that many of our students who have transitioned into a tech career even though they started with no coding background. Some do not even have a diploma or a degree to begin with and now they are working in places side-by-side with other people who came out from an IT education background.

How are NEXT Academy's full time classes like?

It's unlike your typical class/lecture that you are used to. The state of our mass education system, built in a whole other and older era, has spoonfed us and taught us to be good employees in the past. Things have changed. At NEXT Academy, there will be minimal lectures and maximum hands-on/self-driven learning. You will actually need to think and be intellectually stimulated. Instructors are around all the time to guide you and for you to ask questions that you can't find an answer to. Our course material consists of coding challenges that are designed to help you learn to be a good independent software developer. It's the most effective way of learning.

How about learning to code online, by myself?

It's certainly possible. Our founder, Josh, was self-taught. In his words, "It made me very independent compared to many computer science college graduates." However, it usually takes a long time to learn on your own because of the steep learning curve.

Many students who came to us told us that while they have the discipline to learn online, they had no mentors to turn to when they are stuck. Which is why, our courses are very much focused on mentorship.

I can't afford your tuition, what options do I have?

We might have a solution for you! We offer an instalment plan for either a 6-month or 12-month period, with 0% interest. This is only for Maybank cardholders. Unfortunately, debit cards are not accepted.

Furthermore, you can check with your company if they are HRDF (Human Resources Development Fund) registered. All our courses are HRDF approved, employees working for companies registered under the scheme will be able to upskill without the need of funding their own education.

I'm already learning to code on my own, should I join NEXT Academy?

We have a vested interest to say yes. But you should decide based on your progress. The key differences between learning on your own and with us are the guidance you get from experts and having the social environment where you will have people to learn together and maybe even collaborate with in future.

Should I go to university and study Computer Science?

Again, this depends on your goals and which university in question. We get quite a few fresh graduates of Computer Science degrees from other universities coming to NEXT Academy. The reason why they came to NEXT Academy after earning a Computer Science degree was because they say they weren't taught what they wanted to learn in university. If all you want is to learn how to build apps, a Computer Science degree is great but not neccessarily the best way to get started. If you want deep understanding of systems and more, Computer Science is great. A CS degree will certainly make you a great developer as well. Also, if you wanted to pursue a CS degree, we suggest aiming for the best colleges in the world such as Stanford, U.C. Berkeley, MIT or University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign

Do I need any formal education prior to enrolling into NEXT Academy?

No, you don't need any formal education prior to enrolling into NEXT Academy but you have to fulfil the requirements stated.

I want to learn to code. What language or framework should I learn first?

Beginners are often fooled into thinking that learning a specific language or framework is the right way to learn technology. This is, however, completely wrong. But no one should be blamed for this because employers often post jobs such as "Java Developer", "C# Developers", "Python Developers". However, what the employers don't tell people is how they interview their candidates. It's never about the language but a candidate's ability to solve problems, learn new things and get the work done. And if you went to a real Computer Science university, the last thing they will ever tell you is how important a specific language or framework is. Instead of learning a specific language or framework, learn to think like a programmer and you can always learn any new language or framework easily. This is important because new languages and frameworks appear or change all the time.

I heard that we learn how to build web apps at NEXT Academy. What is the difference between web apps and websites?

There are many varying versions of this. But the general consensus in the tech community is that websites are static while web apps are dynamic. In layman terms, a website can only present one kind of information to everyone while web apps can present different information to different people. Think of websites as information sites whilst sites like Facebook/ Airbnb/ Quora are web apps. Web apps have the ability to identify you and serve content relevant to you. You can often log in or store data like write a blog post or upload a picture. An e-commerce site is also another example of a web app. Banks use web apps to power a lot of their end-user systems such as ATMs and online banking. Websites are great for bakery shops trying to tell people where they are located and have some pictures to show off their delicious cakes!

Can I build mobile apps at the end of the program?

Not immediately. But everything that you learn in the program will be used to build mobile apps as well.

There are 2 key things you learn at our Web Development bootcamp that will be carried over to mobile app development.

1. You learn to be a programmer. That means you now have the ability to pick up skills to build for anything from Android phones to iOS to self-driving cars.
2. Mobile apps often require web apps or (as some people call it) backend apps to support it. Think Instagram. You might think Instagram is a mobile app but behind-the-scenes, you need a "web app" or "backend app" to store the pictures, associate them to your profile, manage your followers and followings, serve you images when you open your Instagram app on your phone and more.

I heard a lot about Javascript, Go, etc. do we learn that at the bootcamp?

Yes. You will learn about Javascript in the bootcamp. You can learn Go very easily after you graduate from our program. Read our answer to "I want to learn to code. What language or framework should I learn first?"

What is the purpose of the pre-bootcamp call?

The pre-bootcamp call is conducted for us to get to know you better. We also want to help you find out if the bootcamp will be a good fit for you. Think of it as a casual conversation with us. Ask us anything during the call!

Upon registering, you will be prompted to schedule the call with us. It will be conducted virtually. You'll receive the call access link through email once you've selected a suitable date and time. Do ensure that you have a working mic and webcam beforehand.

Is there a due date for enrolment?

Intakes will close 1-week before the intake's start date. We recommend enrolling 2-3 weeks before the intake starts so that you'll have enough time to complete the prepwork.

I can't find a suitable intake, what can I do?

Join our Waiting List and we'll inform you once your preferred intake is open for registration.

Can I defer once I've enrolled?

No; once your learning duration has started. Yes; before your learning duration starts. However, under extreme situations with substantial proof, we will evaluate on a case-by-case basis.

Is this course HRDF claimable?

All our courses are HRDF (Human Resources Development Fund) approved, employees working for companies registered under the scheme will be able to upskill without the need of funding their own education.

How do I apply for the 0% monthly instalment plan?

Malaysian Maybank Credit Card holders are eligible for the 12-month 0% monthly installment plan. This can be done online.

Can I pay by cheque?

Yes, we accept payment by cheque, you'll have to come to our office to make the payment.
