Born to Code

Renowned School of Programming 42

Born to Code – this is the motto of the students at the renowned school of programming 42 Heilbronn and a goal they pursue with great enthusiasm.

The venue is a freshly renovated historic machine factory located in the center of Heilbronn. The special thing about 42 Heilbronn is its educational approach: At the school, the full-time students learn top soft skills and coding skills via peer learning, all without teachers, courses, or books. The focus is much more on self-organized learning.

It is also immensely important to the XEPTUM Group to support young IT talent. As such, the company is providing a XEPTUM scholarship to study at 42 Heilbronn. “People who have a clear goal in mind should not be thwarted by financial obstacles,” says Hans Tscherwitschke, member of the XEPTUM Consulting AG management board.

The first campus of the 42 School of Programming opened in Paris in 2013 with the vision of creating a new type of programming training institution with a unique educational approach. There are now over 30 such schools of programming worldwide with more than 10,000 students altogether. In Germany, an additional campus to the Heilbronn site is to be opened in Wolfsburg.
