300 students started in the 2nd batch of kood/Jõhvi

During the 2022 application process, over 3400 people tried their hand at applying to kood/Jõhvi. After a successful Selection Sprint, we opened our doors to 300 new students, who started their 2-year journey on the 21st of November. 

The first day for the 2nd batch!

The 2nd batch joined our 1st batch of students, who are halfway done with their program already. Altogether, kood/Jõhvi has 500 students from all areas of life.

Who is the 2nd batch of kood/Jõhvi?

The 2nd batch consists of 300 new students from all around the world. We have people from 19 different nationalities! The average age of a student is 27, the median age is 26! The oldest student is 64 years old!

Statistics from the 2nd batch students

Gender-wise, 31% of the students are women, and 69% are men. Awesome to see so many women, let’s hope that the percentage keeps rising from year to year. 

The students divide into people learning full-time on-site and living in the school building with free accommodation. The other half of the students are studying remotely and use the school premises now and then.

What does the journey look like for the students? 

Well, in short, the two years curriculum will bring students to a level of mid to senior Full-Stack Developer. Students will go through a large variety of domains and languages.


  • 50+ projects (in Go, Javascript, Rust but also in C, C++, Ruby-on-Rails, PHP, Python…);
  • 3 language pools (Go, Javascript, Rust),
  • 5+ Branches (Specialisation)

kood/Jõhvi’s self-learning methodology aims to develop students’ ability to learn how to learn, how to solve complex problems, and how to be co-creative. And thus, creates an intelligent collective.
