    Life Changing

    I'm very happy with how the experience turned out. It was pretty much everything they said it would be and I'm very happy with how much I learnt and how much I've improved in many aspects, from coding to teamwork and self-criticism and critical thinking.

    Life changing

    The 14-week boot camp from Academia de Código allowed me to make a career shift from Mechanical Engineering to the IT space. This was exactly what I needed and it did overcome my initial expectations. If you don't feel like you're having any progress in your career, just go for it!

    Best decision of my life

    As I said to some recruiters, I had the best midlife crisis ever. 
    I worked in a call center for almost 10 years when exactly 3 years ago I decided to change my life and enroll in <Academia de Código_>. 
    I was afraid that my 42 years old was somehow an obstacle to hiring, but the truth is that after 15 days of the finished course I had the best contract I had seen so far. 
    In addition to the ease with which they teach technical knowledge in a very short time (3 and a half ...

    Got the code, got the family.

    After you get in you're <AC_> for life, they make you learn step by step #noSkiping and you get the how things are made knowledge.
    You get more than just plain "how to code", you get a community that backs you up all the way.
    Loved it!

    Way aheads of its time

     Within less than 2 months after finishing I landed a job.
    The bootcamps require you to give 200% of your life during those 3 months, but it's definitely worth it. They push you to the limit, all the while maintaining an amazing informal and casual relationship with the class.
    They give you the tools to succeed, but the work needs to come from you.
    The mentorship is great, even if you doubt yourself throughout 90% of the time. In the end you get an amazing feeling of achievement...

    5*

    Before starting the bootcamp, I was looking for a better job, doing something I probably liked.
    After finishing the bootcamp, I am doing what I always dreamed of.
    I am in a job that provides all the challenges I wanted for myself, accepting different daily tasks, learning new things every day and being better than myself the next day.

    The bootcamp I had @ <Academia de Código_>  not only prepared me for my current job, it also provided friends for life, new experiences ...

    Hard as nails, but totally worth it

    You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll live and breath code, all for an awesome payback of doing something amazing and rewarding. I now have fun doing something I really enjoy, getting a respectable income and having my opinions and suggestions heard.

    Life changing!

    This is one of a kind life changing experience... hands down, no bullshit,  straight forward and as simple as this.
    You get to experience the most intense, fast paced, detailed and specialised training program, focused in computer programming and computer science, but you do this while in the most creative and emancipating environment you can dream of.

    It's something you never seen or tried before, and I can guarantee, you will never experience it agai...

    I was, once upon a time, an unemployed Clinical Analysis Master's graduate.
    Then I learned how to code, and I never looked back.

    Now seriously, there are many reasons why I think anyone jobless, with quick thinking, an interest for technology and an eternal thirst for knowledge should apply for this course: The syllabus is really strong. You will learn to read the Code as if it was a natural language. It will quickly take you through the 1s and 0s of the old ways,...

    Best experience!

    Just possibly the best thing that ever happened to me!

    I have a degree in Biology but I struggled to have a consistent, well-paid job.
    After some back and forth in my life, I found this incredible and supporting family called <Academia de Código_>.

    The Bootcamp is very intense but it manages to make you a great problem solver.
    The syntax is just syntax, I think the best outcome is their ability to make you think for yourself, gain confidence, and that makes you ...
