42 Istanbul: Coding cultures, histories and continents

“42 Istanbul is part of the Türkiye Open Source Platform, founded in 2019, under the auspices of the Ministry of Industry and Technology. Its purpose is to fill the gap of talented software developers with a goal of 500,000 in the country by 2023. We have established a large front together with 21 founding members and 97 stakeholders from state, private sector, NGOs, universities, trade unions, and tech communities including Getir, Microsoft, AWS, IBM, SAP, and BBVA.

We have examined most of the alternatives and decided to cooperate with 42 because it’s the world’s most successful new generation coding school. It’s a revolution, not only because there are no teachers, but also because of the peer learning model. 42 in Turkey is perfectly matching the official strategy of the Ministry that aims to increase the number of software developers at a national scale and to ‘’Make Turkey a software development hub’’ in disruptive technologies.”

Sertaç Yerlikaya, Director of 42 Istanbul

Istanbul inspires everyone. It is not only a place for historical and cultural power but also a place for the development of science, industry, and technology. This is a big city with various challenges waiting to be tackled by software developers. It’s like a treasure!

Sertaç Yerlikaya, Director of 42 Istanbul

It’s Istanbul. It’s 42. It’s 42 Istanbul, the two best things coming together and making the best campus in the best environment!
