3 Steps to success
Envision your APPs and PLAN your 12-week program
Ideate your apps using mindmaps and then derive milestones, issues and a roadmap. Set up a GitHub Project so you learn the skills to lead a developer team. Lastly, discover which frameworks best suit your apps and which skills you are going to learn when. You will gain a lot of clarity and a crystal-clear path to achieve your goals.
build your apps from prototype to v1.0 and strengthen your mindset
With a solid plan, you iteratively build your apps first as simple prototypes, then to Minimal Viable Products (MVPs) you can share with friends and family. Finally, you deploy your apps to the cloud. Weekly mindset calls and code clinics as well as an archive of more than 250 group coaching calls are rich resources - both in terms of knowledge and emotional support.
publish your code and celebrate yourCertification
In 12 weeks you can earn the exclusive PDM Certification. Unlock new career paths by proving to your new employer your dedication to your craft. Your coach will make sure that you learn all it takes to build your apps and reach your career goals.

Robin Beer PDM & PDI Coach
Robin studied physics and started a PhD in energy systems analysis before joining a startup as founding engineer in which he ideated and implemented the first tech stack. Robin loves the IDE of VS Code to write clean code via test-driven development. He prefers to iteratively develop apps with streamlit and FastAPI to create MVPs of startup ideas. Therefore, he leverages frameworks like pulumi for infrastructure-as-code and prefect for orchestration - leveraging Python for the entire toolchain.
Christo Oliver PDM Coach
Christo has been a data architect and engineer delivering data platforms and solutions for 16 years. Long before Python arrived in the data world, he started seeing its potential and taught himself how to use the language and apply it to data projects. Python now plays a significant role in his work, and he has gained extensive experience in how to apply it in real-world projects. Throughout his career, teaching and presenting training has been an important part. He is excited to share his knowledge and industry experience with students to help them with their Python projects.
Ryan PDM & PDI Coach
Ryan enjoys lounging on the beach with his wife, a good book and his two daughters – busy at play. You know what else Ryan loves? Coding! Especially coding in Python. He enjoys teaching it, talking about it, reading about it, the podcasts… one might say it’s a bit much. A lot of Ryan’s day is spent either developing new tools, or maintaining the codebase for his Django SaaS app. Other than beaching or coding, Ryan does manage several businesses, plays a bit of pickle ball, and teaches robotics and coding to kids all over The Bahamas.
Erik O’Shaughnessy PDM & PDI Coach
Erik O’Shaughnessy is an opinionated and friendly Unix system programmer living the good life in Texas.

Hugh Tipping PDM & PDI Coach
Hugh has nearly 30 years experience in the technology industry from the early days of the Internet all the way to the latest practices in Cloud engineering, and holds a degree in Computer Science. As a proponent of automation, Infrastructure as Code, Test Driven Development and CI/CD software development workflows, Hugh believes in making computers work for people rather than the other way around. In the realm of Python, Hugh is a fan of FastAPI, Pytest, and Django, and uses Python to build tooling for AWS (Amazon Web Services) via boto3. “Security shouldn’t be an afterthought.”
Will Frey PDM & PDI Coach

Will currently is located in Seoul with his wife, two dogs, and cat.
Michael Abrahamsen PDM & PDI Coach
After studying computer science, Michael began using Python to bring an injury prevention product to market. The product uses biomechanical data from motion capture systems to predict injuries. In the process, he became a full-stack developer using Python, Django, and Flask. Michael continues to build products using Python and contributes to multiple open-source projects in the Python ecosystem.
You may ask yourself the following questions before you join the program. Just reach out to us, if you have another question.
What Python level do i need to have to enter pdm?
People that join PDM typically have an end beginner / intermediate level with their Python + developer skills. If you are unsure if your current level is sufficient to do PDM at this time, reach out to us and we’ll happily assess your skills together. If you are brand new to Python + development, check out our Pybites Developer Initialization (PDI) program first.
How much time do I need to invest per week?
We always say ~10 hours a week. As the effort will be so focused (working on apps, dedicated coach with targeted feedback) ~2 hours a day will give you favourable results. If you join the program, you get a free productivity course to help you make time.
When can I start the program?
Enrollments happen every Monday upon payment and signing of the program terms.
Is there a refund policy?
Yes, we have a 7-day money-back guarantee. If you feel the program is not right for you within the first 7 days, you can request a full refund, no questions asked.
I Don't have APP ideas, can I start anyway?
No worries, we’ll have you run through preparatory docs and training as part of the onboarding sequence, but we’re happy to flesh out some app ideas before joining as this is critical to your success in the program. We usually schedule one follow up call after the first strategy session to work on this with you so we can hit the ground running.
