Learn from a pro

The Web Application Development course is led by Edward McCaughan.

With a degree in robotics and electrical engineering and several years of experience as a web developer working on real-life applications and projects, Edward brings both an excellent theoretical understanding and practical experience to the course.
Following a stint at a UK-based IT agency, he moved to Berlin in 2010 and joined Betterplace, a Berlin-based company supporting non-profit organizations of all sizes in their fundraising and operations, where he built out and optimized the Ruby on Rails-based application backend and platform.

Edward has been teaching basic and advanced Ruby on Rails courses since 2013, and is a mentor at Rails Girls Berlin.
As a Maker-Of-Stuff and well versed hackathon participant, Edward brings a focus on practice and great sense of humor to all stages of the course from start to finish.

Experience Berlin

Berlin is a city with a rich history and a colorful present, and very easy to get comfortable in for international visitors. With the recent startup boom, you'll feel right at home.
We'll be happy to help you find accommodation in Berlin, if Airbnb, Wimdu and 9flats don't do the trick, and will link up participants interested in sharing a larger apartment.

As an EU citizen, you can generally live and work in Berlin freely. Citizens of many other countries such as the United States, Canada and Israel can enter and stay in the EU for up to 90 days without a visa, which will suffice for the course. (The German Federal Foreign Office has more information on its website)
Please make sure you know the requirements for your specific situation and contact us and the German embassy in your country when in doubt. Also let us know if you need assistance with German-language forms or requests.

Note that you will generally not be allowed to take on any kind of work in Berlin during your stay. However, should you seek a position in Berlin after the conclusion of the course and get hired, you will find that many employers are able to assist in the process of getting all necessary documentation for a longer-term residency as a non-EU citizen.
