Netcentric Academy

Skyrocket your coding career.

Teaching means life-long learning

The Netcentric Academy was launched in 2015. A results-focused training programme, its aim is to raise every participant up to the expert and productive level of Netcentric developer. 

The Academy is led by outstanding technology thought leaders with a focus on designing, optimising and implementing digital marketing platforms built on Adobe marketing Cloud.

Our experts help you advance your understanding of key technical areas, learning everything about AEM, enabling you to work on real life projects and understanding how to build, de-bug and deliver AEM solutions.

About Netcentric Academy

The Academy training programme is designed for web developers who want to advance their coding skills. Taking place in Barcelona each year, it’s eight-week of intensity - a developers bootcamp -  in which you’ll first learn all the basic development skills before working on a project through which you’ll showcase your achievements to the organisation.

Once you successfully complete the programme, you’ll become a full-time employee at Netcentric - unleashing you into the world, better trained, with more experience and ready to face any challenge.

Theory and practice combined to enhance learning

The Netcentric Academy is an entry point for people wanting to kickstart their development career with the end goals of not only joining Netcentric as a full time employee, but also playing an active role in one of our AEM projects.

Among the many things you’ll learn in the first week of the programme, we’ll get you started with who we are and what we do. Then you’ll be given an introduction to JIRA - our internal bug tracking and project management system - after which you’ll learn about the Adobe Marketing Cloud and how to setup Adobe AEM.

The second part of the programme you will be taught both theory and practical assignments on topics such as:

  • Jenkins
  • Development workflows
  • AEM development
  • CSS
  • SASS
  • Frontend workflows
  • Javascript
  • Search
  • QA
  • Touch UI
  • Responsive Web Design (RWD)
  • HTML5
  • Sightly
  • Accessibility
  • Web Performance

Finally, during the last part of the Academy programme, students are grouped together and tasked to deliver a business solution tailored to the needs of a client - working alongside existing Netcentric employees. So not only do you learn how to code but you also learn how to develop holistic real-world business solutions.

Hear from our recent graduates

Academy Graduate: José Vidal [Front-end Developer]

I applied to the Academy because I wanted to gain professional experience and continue learning. I learned about the tools we have available for creating solutions for clients, as well as coding best practices, to create projects that are able to both scale and which deliver. For me, the Academy was a great opportunity for learning how to work on professional and agile projects that are built with best practices in mind. I recommend the Academy to anyone who is interested in learning how to work in a modern and professional web development environment.

Academy Graduate: Ines Akrap [Front-end Developer]

I started Netcentric Academy just a month after getting my Master’s degree and hoping to get some experience and learn how things work in the real world. And I did. Not only did we get to learn how things are done in Netcentric, what technologies are used and why, we also got to know a lot about company itself. Doing our own project gave us a chance to show our creativity, resourcefulness and teamwork to deliver the best possible solution in just few weeks. I would recommend the Academy to all those who are just starting their developer careers, as well as to those who would like to try something new. I guarantee you will learn a lot and have fun while doing it.
