Infinum Academy is a program where you have the opportunity to learn the foundations of modern software design or development. We say foundations, but you can actually learn a lot, depending on how much effort you put in. All courses are split between lectures, one-on-one mentoring sessions, and home-assignments.
So it starts, school bell ringing. We meet two times per week for 2-hour live classroom sessions. We cover the theory, but most of our time together is dedicated to practical assignments. You’ll receive all the necessary materials before each lecture. Think code samples, readings and other bits and pieces we see fit.
There is a lot of talking and yelling in the process of creating software. Important e-mails are sent out every once in a while, and you’ll also be getting access to our super-secret Slack group. So there’s some typing involved as well. We go above and beyond to keep you well-informed, and don’t worry, we were just joking about the yelling part.
There’s a person ready to answer all of your questions and concerns, and a shoulder to cry on when you get stuck with something. You meet with your mentor once a week. You can discuss design, the code you wrote, homework, or just talk about life. Mentors are always available on Slack or via e-mail, so feel free to bother them as much as you want.
If you thought this was the place with no homework, you were wrong. Except here, homework is fun. You get to apply everything you’ve learned in class and build a real-world app from the ground up. For development courses, homework is reviewed using pull requests. Designers just tend to sprinkle some glitter to see if your work shines.
Be a show-off
Infinum Academy is an educational extension of our app-building business founded in 2005; recognized and awarded by the community. To top it off, we’ve been approved on LinkedIn as a university with our very own page. So go out there and brag all about your diploma. To your friends. Or your mom.

“I had high expectations, but I learned even more than I expected! No college course covered the topics we did at the Academy, so it was a really insightful experience. Learning new and useful things in a relaxed atmosphere with top professionals, what more could I want?”
“I really enjoyed the lectures. We covered all the latest technologies and that would take me ages to learn by myself. My mentor was amazing, always explaining everything in detail. If you want to learn a lot and get ahead of others, definitely apply!”
“I didn’t expect we’d go through the whole process so thoroughly. Everything we had learned we put into practice. Infinum Academy also helped me gain a competitive advantage when applying for jobs later on. I would recommend it to everyone!”
“The knowledge and support our mentor provided were astounding, be it through his engagement in classes or the homework assistance. I learned about the technology I otherwise wouldn’t even hear about at the university. I already told all my classmates about it!”

“Our mentor was amazing. Not once did he say we had to do our homework, but that he wishes we would. That encouragement! He was present throughout the course and made sure to adjust the topics and courses in a way that we all could collaborate and finish the course.”
“I would recommend the Academy without any hesitation! I mean, I would even love to attend another course if it’s possible, maybe an advanced one? It’s a great reference for my career development in the future.”
“The only thing that would make this experience better is if it lasted longer! That way, I could spend even more time with my mentors and colleagues. The highlight of attending the Academy was all the shared knowledge and skills, which we can now use to improve our projects.”
“I had zero Android-related experience before Infinum Academy. I have learned so much through the classes, that I’ve managed to build an app. I mean guys, I have an app now! Impressive or what.”
“You learn things the right way through real project examples. You get homework after class, and we would all do it together and help each other out. That’s a good team spirit! Mentors always gave us some tips & tricks that can be a time- and life-savers.”
“Methods we used in the Design course helped me focus on users and their interaction with a product. We experienced the whole process, from initial concept to pitching, and got a lot of tips & insight into tons of useful resources along the way.”
“All the parts of the digital design process were explained in detail, and you can’t get that with online tutorials. The whole point was learning while having fun and designing your own app. I would recommend it to everybody!”
“I heard people saying this is cool so I wanted to try. The most valuable thing I learned is atomic design, it’s a clear system that is applicable to every project I do, and I still use it in my everyday work.”
Time to be picky
If you like technology, this is the perfect opportunity to learn more. Our lecturers and mentors are excited to teach you, the courses are hands-on, and we’ll even let you do homework and eat Domaćica from our offices.
We’ve been building software for over 15 years. With more than 500 projects behind us, we figured we’re doing something right. Our teams of 240+ people have polished their skills creating apps for renowned world brands, and we want to share that knowledge with you, dear reader.
Why? We noticed there’s a gap between theory and practice. That gap needs closing. More people should learn how to make amazing stuff with technology. That’s why we want to teach you how we do work, mistakes to avoid, things to google, and when to pop the champagne.
If you came all the way to the bottom of this page, you probably want to learn something. Go for it, choose a course that tickles your imagination. Wink wink.
