Made inMontreal

How we started

Back in 2014, DecodeMTL co-founder Kevin was looking to solidify his programming skills. As an internet marketer, he needed to brush up on his web development for his professional development.

Frustrated with the out-dated offerings from current local institutions, Kevin emailed his old colleague Ziad about running a Part-Time Front-End Course.

Ziad had a passion for teaching, having mentored many people in the past, and jumped at the opportunity to put a course together. A few months later, DecodeMTL was born.

Why we do it

Traditional schools teach in old ways, and we knew there was a better way. We want to inspire and motivate people to reach their potential, to step outside their comfort zone, and ultimately pursue work they love.

We feel that large institutions only see their students as numbers in a database, for us, our students are our friends. Nothing makes us happier than seeing our friends succeed.

Our Values

  • Quality over quantity
  • Passion (Both in our staff and our students)
  • Don’t take things too seriously (You can learn and have fun at the same time)
  • Outcomes (Your success is our priority)
  • Creativity, innovation, and hardwork

The more successful you are, the more you need to learn and grow. Your commitment to learning has to be continuous and unrelenting.
