I have Codeup to thank for my new skill set and my new job. The program was difficult, but I learned a lot in a short amount of time. The curriculum is very good, and the instructors care about your success.

During the course, you build a portfolio that includes four web apps and a website. They help you with your resume and LinkedIn profile, and you have access to Geekdom and Geekdom events during the course, which is a great networking opportunity. There are lunchtime speakers every week from...

From what I've read, developer bootcamps often run for weeks and cost appropriately escalated sums of money. I say that taking a week-long course in-residence at Eleven Fifty Academy in the Indianapolis area is the sweet-spot of boot-camping. I don't think I would have opted, at this point in my life, for weeks of do-nothing-else intensity at a huge money outlay. Having gone through the Intro to iOS Development in Swift programming language, naturally using Apple's Xcode integrated development e...

Hack Reactor is the best software engineering program out there, and it's not even close. I wanted to learn programming as fast as possible and HR was (and still is) the best opportunity available. Attending HR has been one of the best decisions I've ever made in my life. A lot of people say that in their reviews because it really is true. If you manage to get accepted, you should go.

You will learn A LOT, just by being around so many smart people, but there are 2 main things you will definite...

I came into Epicodus, physically, with nothing. However, I did come with a passion for coding and a desire to learn. It quickly turned into the best experience I could possibly have. It is exemplary in teaching you the skills needed. This is shown even moreso in how Michael has continued to offer cohorts for students that fall into disciples other than the typical RoR and JS setup. He truly wants to play it to what the market needs and is best for the students.

My class was very successful. Eve...

My name is Richard and in October of 2014 I was a Shift Supervisor at Starbucks. I graduated from Coding House in December of 2014, now (January 2015) I am a fulltime software developer and making roughly 3-4x what I was at Starbucks, and of course, I’m only getting started. By March I will have completely paid off the expenses of Coding House and everything from there on out will be pure profit. It is with this in mind that I endorse Coding House, because for any flaws the fledgling bootcamp ma...

Why did I choose We Got Coders: After a thorough research of course providers it turned out they are the only ones offering a job placement upon successful course completion. Also the groups are smaller so you get more face time with your tutor (do not underestimate the value of this).

What to Expect: - This is the real deal, your pathway to become a Web Developer, the curriculum and Dan (your tutor) go the extra mile, you will be more prepared than the rest out there. - Long working days (al...

I rarely write reviews about products or services I purchased. However, I am making an exception for Epicodus because it was such a positive and amazing journey for me. I searched all the programs available at the time (late '13) and Epicodus was the only 4 month program, by far the longest and also cheapest program out there. I knew that i needed at least 4 months to learn programming. While I do I have a BS and MS in Information Technology, i was by no mean a programmer. I was s...

I attended Nashville Software School during cohort 3. I was looking to re-enter the workforce after years as a stay-at-home dad. I found the experience to be fun, challenging, and rewarding in various ways. After graduation, I worked at the school as a TA while picking up contracting work on the side. Now, just 17 months removed from being at home with my kids, I am employed full-time as a Software Engineer.

My experience with NSS has been a tremendously rewarding one. It took a lot of hard wo...

I am a graduate from the second cohort of NSS. I entered the program with a Bachelors Degree in Music and work history in Healthcare. I had zero development experience upon entering the program. Since graduation, I have been fortunate to obtain gainful employment with an agency and two start-up companies.

NSS was no walk in the park. It was immersive. It was challenging. It required a great deal of time and energy. But, as with many things worth doing in life, you get out of it what you put in....

I went to Epicodus after working in a few different unsatisfying careers and thinking I might like to code. Of all of the bootcamps I researched, Epicodus seemed to provide the best value in terms of knowledge gained vs. price, not to mention it’s situated in the heart of the “Silicon Forest” of Portland, OR, a city buzzing with techies and tech companies.

The environment differed from any other formal schooling I’ve been to in that the onus was definitely on me, the student, which is as it sho...

I was on the course from September to December 2014. I had three of the most fun, intellectually stimulating months in recent memory when I was on the course. I loved my cohort, the teaching style under Enrique's leadership was well-suited to my learning style, and Makers provided a focused, work-like environment without which I never would have learned to code. The CEO, Evgeny, is very receptive to criticism and promotes a culture of openness within the company, among both the staff and the stu...

Really couldn't be better. Provide a very good grounding of the industry and tech. They don't hide anything from students and make it very clear that learning to code isn't as simple as a 12 week course, and instead focuses on lifelong learning.

There isn't much handholding, which is exactly the right thing. The emphasis is on the individual learning how to learn, which is extremely important given the constantly changing landscape of the industry.

Staff extremely helpful, respond to feedback ...

I came to Epicodus with a graduate degree in the arts, and a desire for a more prosperous career and lifestyle. My time spent at Epicodus was worth every second, and their job placement team is unlike any that I’ve experienced before in academia. Epicodus’s dedicated staff checked in with us weekly, kept us informed of new job postings and network opportunities, provided empathy, and helped us stay positive. Thanks to this amazing and supportive team, I landed an sweet new developer job with a c...

Attending (and surviving) Epicodus has been one of the greatest accomplishments of my life. I arrived knowing HTML/CSS and how to make a simple if/else statement -- nothing more. I was definitely driving the strugglebus for the first two months of the program. It's hard work, don't let anyone say otherwise. You have to work for it if you want it, but that's why Epicodus is so great -- the instructors and the owner, Michael have built a very supportive environment. Epicodus is designed around pai...

Hi all, I would like to get some early feedback on my little side project called datajones. In a nutshell: You take an office document and insert placeholders. For [[example]] like [[this]]. Upload this document to Datajones, and I will create a basic input form for you. Use this form to collect data and create PDFs out of them. You can customize the generated forms in various ways, to boost your productivity: Modify the layout, change the input types of your fields, add auto completion or default values. The forms will work on most mobile browsers. With features like image uploads or offline storage. At the moment it is just used for on the fly proposal generation, but since it can handle images and the internal graphing power of openoffice/libreoffice, I hope this could be useful to more people. Thanks in advace for your feedback.

If you're just getting started with programming or struggling to learn it on your own then Epicodus is definitely the way to go. Without prior coding experience working a full-time job, it was quite a challenge to get myself going on programming. After a few months of wrapping my head around with Javascript and Ruby, I realized that in order to accelerate my learning process and make it more fun I needed to collaborate with other self-learners like me and make my studying full-time. Here's where...

Great bootcamp school! Active community of alumni and coders now exist with this school in Vancouver.

I took the bootcamp about 10 months ago. After about 2 months of finishing the bootcamp I nailed a steady long term gig at over $50 an hour. Roughly 90% of my fellow grads secured good work after graduation. If you work hard, it's true that these bootcamps really pay off.

Techendo is the best place to review, share, and connect with the startup community online.
