In all honesty, it was very tough. But overall, it was an amazing experience!... Read Less
The staff are incredible, there's no doubt about that. There are too many people to name, but I have to give a special shout-out to my teachers, Justin and Javier.
In the end I found a job through Codeup's hard working placement team. Though it took five months to land after graduation, they definitely fulfilled their job placement guarantee in my case. At the time of enrollment most students won't be thinking what the market conditions are by the time they graduate. Unfortunately, it's been a tough market for new grads. I would keep that in mind when determining a course of action in the job-seeking phase. On the other hand, if you are willing to relocate then that opens up many more opportunities.
As far as the curriculum goes, though it is definitely robust, I think there could be some minor areas of improvement. To be fair, the curriculum regularly gets updated which I think is great.
On a final note, if you're in the San Antonio or Dallas area and looking to join a coding bootcamp, I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a better option! Codeup definitely gets my recommendation :)
P.S. Full disclosure, I went through the program while it was fully remote. That format seemed to work pretty well for me, though I believe Codeup has resumed their regular in-person format by now.

From day one we were told that we would only get out of this course what we were willing to put into it; Something they reiterated at every new technology learned. Still, they offered one-on-one tutoring for those who needed it, and were always active on slack even late at night where I would sometimes be stuck on an exercise that I couldn't finish in class and needed to reach out.
In addition to learning the technologies used in the industry, we also learned about the 'best practices' of the Software Engineering world, and mindsets and strategies to help us tackle the challenges placed on us during the class; The most important ones - in my opinion - being
"Never be too proud to ask for help",
"Taking a break is the easiest way to keep yourself from burning out",
"Learn your team's strengths so you know where to go when you need help and their weaknesses so you can help build them up",
and - Most importantly - "There's very few wrong ways to solve a problem."
Even when COVID-19 hit and on-site operations were halted in the interest of public health, We moved our courses online, extended our timeline (1 extra week to make sure we were adjusted for remote learning), and even adjusted our start times to make sure everyone was in the best position to continue learning.
I came out of CodeBound with a job offer I graciously accepted and have been leading my own development team since Day 1.
And for some of the other reviews left here; I came into CodeBound not knowing anything more than some basic HTML and CSS and now I'm pioneering functionality on a multi-million dollar project all thanks to the knowledge of my instructors and the first-hand, real world experience obtained as part of CodeBound.

The curriculum was challenging and kept me engaged, but the hands-on projects and supportive community made it a fun and fulfilling experience. Not only did I secure a certificate in fluency of Bootstrap as a result of completing the program, but I also gained confidence in my abilities and a solid foundation for future growth in the field. I highly recommend Nucamp for anyone looking to break into tech or upskill in web development.... Read Less
