Avg Rating:4.7 ( 33 reviews )

4Geeks Academy is a part-time, 16-week coding bootcamp in Miami, Florida, Maracaibo and Caracas, Venezuela. “We breathe coding” is the motto at 4Geeks Academy because they understand that in order to become a developer, one has to become part of the coding culture. 4Geeks Academy provides a blended education model leveraging two proven formats: part-time training and flipped classroom. Students will learn full-stack development including JavaScript, Python, and NodeJS at home through video, animation, images, and infographics; and then class-time is used to debate, build projects, and mentor over practical exercises.

Students will have weekly mentorship meetings and have a 1:7, teacher: student ratio where an intimate setting provides the faculty with the opportunity to adapt to each student’s particular pace. Prospective students do not need coding experience to enroll in the program. Applicants can fill out a short online form and then meet with the 4Geeks Academy team to express interest.

All 4Geeks Academy students have access to flexible payment plans and a new network of advisors and partners that will help guide students throughout the job search process.

    I attended the Bootcamp provided by 4Geekx Academy. During the course, I had doubts if that was the right choice because it was everything new to me comfort zone 0. However, I did my best to learn every detail that I was being taught. Once the course was over I got the feeling that I knew nothing and of course though that I still had a long way to actually be a Junior Developer. 

    My feeling about it was just frustrating because as much more I passed hours studying much more concepts and programming languages there were to learn. It's like you open one door and there are 20 other doors to open after. The important thing was the support I've had, the support actually I still have from the school. They were there when I could not find the answer, that attention gave me the strength I needed to keep going and get a job. 

    I landed in a couple of interviews and in all of those I was couched in how to proceed. In other word these guys know what they are doing. I appreciate that I choose them to teach me how to code.

    I am a former student of this amazing school. I graduated from their first program at the downtown campus with a Full Stack Software Development certificate and it was one of the best decisions I have made. 

    Before graduation, I was able to secure a job (thanks to their fantastic career support). Now, I have recently branched out at started my own web development firm. This was all possible thanks to the teachers and staff at 4geeks. 

    If you are on the fence, I suggest you give their program a try. They have everything you need to be a successful developer as well as partner companies that you can interview with. Their job placement rate is SUPER high (over 90% I believe was the last statistic I heard) and they provide wonderful support to alumni. 

    Check them out, you defintely won't regret it.

    "The best part of 4Geeks Academy is the people that make the Academy and their knowledge"

    Comparing with other bootcamps.. what is unique to 4Geeks Academy is the personalized experience, with tutors and lifelong assistance. Small classes and everyday availability to answer questions is vital to learning quickly. 
     

    Python is taught in the Academy, where no other school does, which is a crucial language in today's world. 
     

    The job support that the academy provides is really amazing. They will be by your side all the way, from resume building, to interview training, until you get a job!

    I had no previous experience in coding at all, but I always felt passionate about technologies and designs, creative things. So I decided to become a web developer. I chose this school, first of all because of good price (I have a payment plan), and second – I liked the curriculum.

     

    I enjoyed EACH class, because we start practice from the first class and it never was boring, no boring lectures, no boring typing, just a lot of knowledge in practice and much more fun! 

     

    English is my third language, but I never felt misunderstand. Teachers explained everything very clearly. 

     

    After graduation I was actively looking for a job and after 2 months (which is not bad) I found 1 paid project and a start-up company with paid and non-paid projects. Which is very good for the experience! 

     

    And the best part of this school is that teachers still help me A LOT with my projects!!! I come to school once a week, or just text to the teacher and get quick respond and help. 

     

    To summarize, 

    This school gives enough knowledge to become a web developer and work by your own.

    Price is reasonable and the payment plan is good.

    Location is great too – right next to i95.

    And I like teachers so much, they are great!

     

    Thank you, 4Geek Academy for this opportunity to change my life <3

    Doesn't matter if your new or looking to sharpen your skills, great course with understanding, "hands on" teaching and guidance from basic coding, to more in depth modern language coding.  The teachers are great and empathetic to your needs.  The learning is very structured but also fun and creative.  Definitely a fast track approach but also designed to be taught on all levels.  Money well spent and would reccomend to anyone looking to pick up a trade for a lifetime!

    Antes de 4Geeks nunca había tenido contacto con la programación ya que soy Ingeniero Mecánico de profesión, y en esta academia la experiencia de aprendizaje fue excelente, posee un pensum/currículo muy completo, que te permite adquirir las herramientas necesarias para ser programador aunque tu nivel previo de conocimientos en el área sea nula. Los profesores poseen amplio dominio del tema y sólo se imparte clases a un número reducido de alumnos por aula de tal manera que la atención a cada estudiante sea casi personalizada. 4Geeks es una academia de programación que posee amplia trayectoria y su sede en la ciudad de Maracaibo (Venezuela) cuenta con excelente ubicación y un cómodo salón de clases. Recomiendo 4Geeks Academy plenamente a todos los que quieran hacer carrera como programadores, a quienes no tienen experiencia en programación, como en mi caso, pues van a salir muy bien preparados y a quellos que ya son programadores podrán perfeccionarse y estoy segura de que aprenderan cosas nuevas ya que en 4Geeks constantemente se actualizan con todas las novedosas herramientas de programación disponibles en el mercado .

    There is something about part-time that is clear: it has to be part-time for those having something else happening in their life. I just can't quit my job and learn software development. It's just impossible for me. The fact that these guys figure it out how to deliver a program like this on a part-time schedule, was great. Although we had to work a lot after hours, with the exercises and projects they sent. You may need like 8 up to 10 hours more of work. There is a moment when you can get even obsessed with the exercise, because you actually wanted to work and sometimes just didn't, so it required more hours of extra work.

    This is certainly a bootcamp in that it is an intense 3 month period of part-time coursework that leaves you sweating and exhausted just like a physical bootcamp.

    ​The overall experience was fitting for me as a father of a young child, husband and full time employee with on-call duties. The course was extremely challenging but quite rewarding due to the milestones given.

    ​Finally, the instructors and students were the lifeblood of this course, well beyond the actual programming and studying. They made everything easy to digest and quite fun to take in.

    ​Give this course a go and I would assure you that you won't regret it as long as you put in the work!

    I've been a programmer for 10 years but my work has been exclusively in banks, and this year I finally decided that I needed to change my line of work if I wanted to achieve what I really desired to do professionally. So for a couple of months I was searching for a course that enabled me to absorb the knowledge and learn first hand from people that had years working on my desired line of work (web development) and this course was exactly that. The amount of knowledge and tips based on real word experience is something I cherish immensely and I'm sure it will be really valuable on the next moves I'm going to make for my carrer
