Presentation

Factoría F5 is the exclusive partner of Simplon in Spain.
Created as a non-profit association, it opened its first coding school in Barcelona early 2018 with 20 coders learning full stack web-development.
A couple promotions later, it now plans to open three new coding schools in Madrid, Bilbao and Gijón by the end of 2019 !  In the years to come, Factoría F5 wants to build a national network of coding schools in Spain creating alliances with major players of tech and social areas and cooperating at European level.
Simplon inclusive bootcamp model is a highly relevant answer to major social and economical issues in Spain.
​​​​​​​It is especially meaningful for assessing specific challenges such as youth unemployment and gender and accessibility gaps.
