Word comes from WeThinkCode_ that it’s launching a new way to win a place at its next Bootcamp tomorrow. Details are under wraps, but from what we gather there’ll be a Bletchley Park-style challenge posted to its Facebook page to complete – so keep an eye on what’s going on over there.

The Joburg-based IT college – which has no classes, no tutors but hundreds students immersed in self-directed or workplace learning programmes – is running the challenge to recruit would-be students for its May cohort. The organisation has always had a novel approach to recruiting students: instead of formal qualifications, you need to pass online aptitude tests and take part in a Bootcamp to show your worth. About 5% of those who take the aptitude tests get through to the Bootcamp stage, and a third get through to the fully-funded course proper.

If you’re looking for a career in software development, either keep checking that Facebook page in the morning or take the regular application challenges at the WeThinkCode_ site here.
