Barcelona Code School offers a 9-week full-time Full-Stack JavaScript Bootcamp in Barcelona, Spain and online. Barcelona Code School's curriculum is focused on using JavaScript with Node.js, Express, MongoDB, React.js and React Native. This Java-Script-focused curriculum will maximize the demand for a student's skills upon graduation. Classes are Monday through Friday from 9:30am until 7:30pm with small group courses where students can receive one-on-one attention from their instructors and master their daily lessons. Located in a prime office space in the center of the city, students can focus on their coursework and excel in the classroom. Besides in-person bootcamp, Barcelona Code School also launched an online version with live streaming lectures and Q&A sessions, weekly online 1:1 sessions and continuous support for the remote students. 

Barcelona Code School wants students from all levels to feel comfortable when they arrive and prevent them from falling behind. Additionally, students will receive CV assistance to help them apply for their dream careers. They will also have access to the alumni network during the course and once they graduate to communicate with other members in the tech community. The school believes in life-long career support and assists students both before and after the course is completed.

Because an intensive, coding bootcamp can be overwhelming, Barcelona Code School organizes optional evening and weekend activities for students to provide brief physical and mental breaks. Activities include paddle boarding, rock climbing, and yoga. Nonetheless, they remind students to keep their studies as their main priority in order to succeed.

    Just finished BCS, must say there were some challenging days, but looking back time really flies and it's amazing how much you can learn in only 9 weeks!
    The course is very hands on, you have 1h break to clear your head and disconnect but apart from that it's full on 8h coding.
    Teachers are great, George is a true programmer who helps you understand the code, even if it's the fifth time he has to explain it. Stefano is great, full of energy and always available to help with any doubt or helping you see the light when you have no idea what is wrong with your code!
    The school is in a great location, I would say it's one of the only schools not in the 22@ district which is great, since it is very centric and well communicated. It's a small school, which makes it homey with a nice terrace to chill and have lunch. Groups are small and you can get a lot more one on one with the teachers.
    Coding is a never ending learning experience, I do feel that I have yet much to learn, but a Bootcamp will definitely get you on the right track and momentum. I feel confident to search for a job and start my career.
    Recommendations: STUDY AS MUCH AS YOU CAN BEFORE YOU START !!!!!!

    I've started this bootcamp because I was interested in the stack being used. The full stack and React Native was very appealing. 

     

    Before starting, be prepared to study. REALLY. Study after hours, weekends, nights...

    The beggining will be hard if you, like me, did not prepare with time with the pre course provided. Once you get going, the professors will be very happy to help. You will need to ask questions and be ready to think once you receive your answer. The answer will probably make you think more. This is good. Direct answers will not prepare you to learn how to think properly. 

    The material provided is properly written although I feel like a little more in depth information could be added. This is not really a problem because more in depth information is provided during the lectures. The material is mostly a basis for the lecture and not an encyclopedia.

    The school is fun and the staff is very helpful. The after course help finding a job seems to be effective. For me it is working fine with several interviews being offered. 

     

    I really recommend the school. Just keep in mind that you need to be prepared to actually study hard.

     I ` ve been thinking about following a bootcamp for a while and finally did it. It has been a great decision to
     follow the full-stack course at BCS.
     
    The course is intense but you can manage it with an effort. I`ve started studying javascript on my 
    own a couple of months before the bootcamp , maybe it helped me. In the end you use javascript during all the course.
    The technologies we've learnt were the latest like React or React Native. 

    The instructors and the team were affables and they know what they are talking about.When you get stucked there are 
    always willing to help and actually resolve your doubts.

    The course motto really caught my attention. It seemed a bit too much, but definitely very bold
    It was intense, fast and I only noticed how much I had learned in the last week when I was writing the code for my first Mobile App.
    I was in the Jan-Mar 2019 Full-stack JavaScript Bootcamp and coming from a completely different background (I'm a bachelor in Sciences with major in Biomedical Sciences) I have to say that it was hard in the beginning. I had to study a lot, including after classes and during the weekends, but it is totally doable. The projects are interesting, there are a lot of exercises to keep on training and the support that they all gave me made a huge difference!
    Now, as a Junior Developer they are helping me with all that I need to find an internship/job.
    I'm grateful for the awesome job that George, Antonello and Margarita did and continuing doing.

    I attended the bootcamp from January to March 2019. It was a great experience where I  learn from experienced people but I also had fun.
    Before starting I didn't know how the course would be but it surprised me how much I learn in just 9 weeks. 
    What motivated me to choose the school was the curriculum they offer with the possibility to learn not only about web apps but also mobile apps.
    If you are starting the bootcamp you should know that it is a tough course because you learn a lot in such a short time and you have to work hard doing all the projects and exercises but then you will be happy with all you achieve. 
    Sometimes when we learn new things I was concerned because it was too much information to work with and I felt like I didn't understand the point but then in the practice time I realised that I got all the concepts and I was able to work with it. Also we had a great support from the teachers.
    We attended different activities as a group and we were invited to 4YFN and Mobile Congress which was a huge experience.
    George, Antonello and Margarita had done a really good job!

    I attended Barcelona Code School,  Aug - Oct 2018 and was very happy with the experience.  I had previous programming and Javascript,HTML,CSS experience, and had been trying to teach myself web development.  Because of this I had been slightly concerned that these sections would move too slowly for me.   However, with the video lectures to supplement the live lectures, I could go at my own speed.  I also found that, even though I knew a lot of the material, the 8 hours a day of class was amazing ‘practice, practice, practice’.  I felt much more solid afterwards and certainly had some knowledge holes filled in.  Having the experienced teachers helped me learn fast.  I was new to backend programming and even though there was a lot of material, I felt like I came out at a much more experienced level.  There’s still a LOT to know and a lot MORE to learn, but that is the nature of this industry – so get used to it!

    I chose Barcelona Code School because they had a focus on REACT and REACT-native. (I live in Barcelona) I wanted to learn these because they are the IN-DEMAND skills right now in Boston (my previous home) – plus I knew they were pretty cool.  I had tried to teach myself REACT too, so I had a start, but there’s nothing like having a teacher.  The other code camps say they have a one evening special workshop in REACT if people are interested, but how could that be enough?  The course is taught all in English and the teachers were very helpful in answering all my questions so that I understood the concepts and techniques.

    I had been thinking about code school for many years, but the cost of any code school seemed high.  I tried to teach myself, and plodded along, sometimes getting blocked for days on what I knew were stupid problems that could be solved by someone with understanding in 5 seconds.  Then this year, I watched some kids graduating from university and realized that they hadn’t tried to ‘teach themselves BIOLOGY’.  You could do it, but it would take 100 times longer.  Teachers are important!  So I finally decided to enroll.  I wish I had done code camp 5 years ago.  I would have been working all these years making up the tuition cost in a month or 2 (I was in the USA). 

    Barcelona Code School was perfect for me in that it wasn’t too long and wasn’t too expensive.  (AND ladies – there are scholarships and fundraisers for women out there—www.f6s.com/futurefunded).

    Plus, I love having access to the videos and class notes, so I can go back and look things up and review.  (Which I needed to do to take lots of job application technical tests)

    After the course was done, the school sent my name out to recruiters and I got LOTS of calls.  I have had many interviews – and have some good possibilities.  I am currently in serious talks with 3 excellent companies. 

    So, I am very happy with my decision to go to BCS.

    The other guy who gave 1 star described everything very accurately. Under no circumstance enroll in this course. 

    Yes, you will learn but once again the best part of this course were the other (only 3) students that felt exactly the same way. The course is a scam and not even worth a friction of the price.

    On top of that the atmosphere is cold and unpleasant, the teacher is unqualified.

    Hi Wynona. 

    It really hurts our feelings to read that you are disappointed with the course. As we are always trying to find the best personalised approach to every student it seems that we have failed to meet your expectations. Maybe it was partly due to you not coming for a lot of lectures and not following the curriculum, ignoring your mentors suggestions, skipping the pre-course or simply our intensive pace and bootcamp format are not something you expected. 

    As we have proven job placements for every student who finished the course successfully and was looking for a job your claims about unqualified instructors sound absolutely unbased.

    The guy you are referring to never ever attended the course in the first place and simply started looking for excuses after receiving a full pack with materials, video lessons and recorded lectures, so he didn’t have a chance to experience the course and our teaching method.

    I just wanted to post some quotes from my emails/messages to you showing concern and availability to help and support you with the course, as we do care for every student:

    “Hi Wynona. 
    How are you? 
    Are you going to be back at school tomorrow? We need to go through the React Native section and bring you up to speed. ”

    “Hi Wynona, how are you? 
    Haven’t seen you at school for couple of days, is everything alright? ”

    “Hi Wynona. 
    How is it going? Any questions so far? ”

    “Hi Wynona. How are you?
    Could you please remind me when you are going to travel for a week? Was it the last week of the course on December 17-21?
    As we are starting React Native on Monday it would be best if you are here for this new material.”

    “Hi Wynona. How are you?
    I’m a bit worried about you skipping the lectures, especially now when we are doing react.js.
    Is there some issues/work?”

    “Hey Wynona, how is it going?
    If you want, we can have a session with you after lunch to go through some exercises or explanations to help you to catch up?”

    Etc., etc., etc…

    Regardless of all this, we are always here for you available to help with anything possible. 

    Thank you.

    The course learning instructions are weak. You will not learn much from it and you can not compete with other student from top boot camp code school. The program only last 9 weeks which is not enough time for you to master everything you need to be a good developer. If you looking to get a job after you complete the program, you will not find one because you don't learn enough for companies to be interested in you. If you read through the review, you'll realize the reviews are either fake or do not go into detail of the program - you don't get a good review that will give you a good idea of the school and what to expect.

    One example of why the learning instructions are weak is, It only tells you what to do but it doesn't go into detail as to why you should code it this way. The instructions are like notes and not real instructions that explain for you to understand. You also get video instructions but you just watch and follow what to do and no explanation as what and why we're doing it. If you have to create a real app yourself after graduation, you will be stuck and will not know how to do it. Some of the instructions are example code and it doesn't really explain the code and what's it's doing.

    Another example is some of the instructions are short such as MongoDB, HTML, and jQuery. HTML and MongoDB are only one page long of instructions. jQuery is a few pages but not enough to learn to confident with it. The courses that are longer do not go into enough detail. For example, in React discussion about props, it explains what props are with a few sentences and a code example but it did not explain the detail of props such as how to use props, types of props, how to pass props to from parent to child then to grandchild. You also won't learn how to define props to prevent a user from passing the wrong props type.

    You can get better instructions on Youtube for free. Save yourself money and go to Youtube if you thinking of joining this code school. You should do your research and compare the top code school to this school and you will see that 9 week is not enough time to learn. BEWARE! This school just want students in and out to take their money. If you try to cancel even after 3 days, you will not get your money back but only get credits. If you don't live in Barcelona, you can't use the credits because the available courses are in-person and the owner does not care that you can't attend and he won't refund you. Every code school will allow you to cancel with a refund but not this school.

    Hi Jaymes. 


    Once again, we are really sad by the fact that you are disappointed with our school. As far as I know, it's your second bootcamp which you didn't like. Let me just go through the things you mention to once explain how it works form our part. 


    As you mentioned, the course lasts for 9 weeks and it's been proved by our graduates from both, online and in-person formats, to be absolutely enough to get prepared for the junior developer's position. We have our alumni hired in 1-2 months on average after the job placement support starts. And we have companies which already hired our graduates coming back for more of them. Which shows that they are completely satisfied. 


    As you mentioned, we provide text materials with explanations and code examples + full length video lessons with us writing and running the code explained in the lecture. It allows students to not just read and try the code but also to actually watch how it is done and follow the instructor to fully implement new concepts in practice. And before they will have to create a 'real' app after the course, as you say, students are build fully functioning apps as a part of the course. One of them is a full-stack web app (example built here: https://e-commerce-.herokuapp.com/) and another one is a native mobile app (example built here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id1414985238). Both have the server, the database and the front-end parts. So after graduation they are already know how to combine all the bits and pieces into a working application.


    Speaking of the depth for the instructions, jQuery is a long time legacy part of the curriculum, kept there for those students who are willing to learn it for some reason. And it has 5 blocks, not 1. The mongoDB section has all the information needed and the process of building an app with mongoDB is shown in the complete video lesson. Same for the rest of the topics. We actually guide students through the entire process in our video lessons since this is a mentored course.


    The comparison of our curriculum to free tutorials is completely incorrect, since courses on self-learning platforms have much lower level of difficulty and do not prepare a student for a real life work. The exercises either too simple or have an option to see the solution, which is not going to happen in real life. We are preparing our students for applying for the jobs, not just learning programming as a recreational habit. 


    And the refund policy is explained right away on our website, since you get access to all the materials, video lessons, exercises, projects, and there is no way to 'return' it we have to use this policy. It is possible to cancel the participation and get full refund before the starting date of the course, but not after you got all the materials which are actually self sufficient to finish the program. 


    Once again, really sorry to hear that and hope you will find school which is more suitable for you. 


    Best regards, 
    George

    Marina Tudela is friendly and explains everything very clear. She teaches you how to really “get inside the head” of the user/customer. Muchissimas gracias Marina!

    I highly recommend Barcelona Code School! No matter which course you are looking to join BCS is the best! The instructors are extremely knowledgeable and passionate about teaching their students. I did the full stack course and have since landed a job as a project manager working with our web development team and as a web page designer. BCS helped me transition into a career that I love! I couldn’t be happier with where this course has led me. From the amazing instructors to the atmosphere this place has something to offer everyone! I enjoyed it so much I also completed the Wordpress course, which I equally enjoyed and plan to sign up for more in the future!

    I had been learning from various online resources for a few months before joining the bootcamp and if you've been doing the same thing you know it can be hard to find the right course to get up to speed, some courses do too much hand holding so by the end of it you dont really feel like you've learnt anything, some show you too little and give no indication of how you can use what you've learnt to build something which has real world use, I can say after completing the course that Barcelona Code School have struck the perfect balance, the course is interesting, the instructors are engaging, and the projects are cool. If you are thinking of taking the course and have no prior knowledge i would advise you to take the pre course seriously and start studying hard from that point as the course is far from easy, it is however manageable with the right work ethic and thourougly rewarding. By the end of the course if you are looking for a job Barcelona Code School are more than happy to assist you in anything you might need, less than a couple of weeks after the Bootcamp i already have three job interviews lined up. If you still have any doubts head over to their website and strike up a conversation everyone's really friendly!

    Coming from a totally different background , doing a bootcamp wasn't an easy decision for me.But this is definitely the best decision I've ever made during my 18 month life in Barcelona. I've always been interested in programming but never really took it seriously until this bootcamp. I found my real passion and I'm proud of myself finishing this super intense course with a few presentable projects. The instructors are very nice and always willing to help whenever you have a question, so don't hesitate to ask questions! They are always trying to make sure nobody is falling behind. The course is well organized and they are constantly improving the curriculum to make sure you can learn the most trendy and useful technologies. Anyway, don't waste your time here reading reviews, just go sign up for a course and start an amazing journey!!

    If you are looking to change career and get a job in tech I would definitely recommend the JavaScript Full-Stack Bootcamp at Barcelona Code School.

    The course is challenging and intense but the instructors are attentive and always on hand if you have any questions or doubts. For me the bootcamp approach was a very new learning experience but I did enjoy it and proud of getting through it. The projects are very hands on and a great way to test your skills.  

    Be prepared to work hard and don’t underestimate the course. However with effort and determination you will enjoy the experience and be amazed at how much you learn!

    George is a very serious about his course. As a good teacher he makes sure that everyone gets as much out of it as possible!

    I wanted to get overall insight into Wordpress and was happy that George had an answer to all my questions though they sometimes might have been a bit off-track.

    This course is hands-on and is ideal if you already have a website you want to make fully thought-out. If you work persistently between the classes you can actually get the whole website done in the three days!  

    Definitely value for money!

    My name is Goran and I'm one of current students at Barcelona Code School.

    I will try to describe you my impressions of JavaScript Bootcamp.

    I have some previous experience with web development so I have some knowledge of HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery. Problem is that knowledge is partial and was acquired ad hoc so I was hoping Bootcamp could give me a more solid foundation of that area and a systematic approach for acquiring required knowledge.

    This is my fourth week and by now I can tell that this course really fulfilled my expectations and even exceeded them. First, it gave me a good perspective at the field and put pieces at the right place. Then, it have deepened each particular subject to details many of which were unknown to me previously or not enough understood. Every lesson has its accompanying exercises and these exercises  are great because they further expand details of specific topic and allows you to see if you correctly understood something or gives you some another view of possible solutions to problems. I think you have to give the best to try to solve exercises by yourself but it's also nice that if you stuck you can ask for help from instructor or from other students. Solved exercises are reviewed by instructor and that additionally resolves possible uncertainties.

    Whole course is well organized and guided, there are several communication tools used. At start you get BCS account at Gmail and by that mail you are receiving all important information. Then you create a Slack account which is tool for more immediate communication, for getting answers to questions, to see code snippets, to see ideas and solutions of other students etc. 
    Then you have Trello for exercices review and discussions about solutions/projects. All learning materials are presented at DropBox Paper.

    Each live lesson is available at BCS YouTube channel and there you can also find shortened form of lessons so called screencasts.
    Since I'm employed and I can attend the course mostly in afternoon/evening hours I didn't know how it will function but it showed up that is not a problem because things are organized flexibly and I can attend lectures and do exercises/projects when is viable to my time schedule.

    You will also get a recommendations for additional resources like reading lists, suggestions for development tools or great sites like Codewars where you can practice your programming skills.

    Although I'm not physically present at School I can feel positive and motivating atmosphere, and school staff is always ready to answer the questions and adjust to possible demands as well as to give advice in which direction would be best to go.

    I thought the course was great and George was a brilliant instructor. 

    I came across this course in my search to fill some knowledge gaps. The cost was reasonable and reviews of the school in general were very positive. 

    I am not from a technical background, however the amount I picked up in 3 days was quite astonishing. Wordpress is so widely used, that it was great to come away with a decent amount of knowledge to be able to both build my own website as well as understand how to assess other websites and figure out what will and won't work on my own. 

    George took his time to explain everything fully but managed to keep to schedule and complete all of the modules of the course within the 3 days. I'd recommend this to anybody wishing to understand the basics of Wordpress and how to go about building their first website.

    I took a web development bootcamp because of the stack they teach. I looked for the bootcamp that teaches React and BCS appeared to be one of a few doing that. The approach they use is friendly for the beginners and they don’t leave anyone falling behind. With React we’ve built a mobile app during the course which was one of my goals and then a large final web app. I learned tons of stuff and it improved my freelancer’s skills dramatically. 

     
    The daily workflow is intensive and challenging, it’s all about writing tons of code and practicing with projects, no useless talks or useless lectures, everything is hands-on and very practical. The async stuff we did is mind blowing but once you figure that out you feel like a codestar. I’ve always been good with computers but this took me to another level. 
     
    Make sure to ask all the questions you have during the course because the instructors are super friendly and helpful. I also practiced on weekends even though some people didn’t. I think it helped me. Honestly, I didn’t think I’d be capable of learning the server-side and databases since I’ve never touched them in my life. Turns out it’s not that impossible. And I should mention the campus they have - it’s a really nice place, calm and quiet with a terrace and everything new.

    Hi!

    I've always loved programming, but made a carreer as a lawyer. This year I decided to give it a try. I needed a good programing school, but I didn't want to do all the things that they do in those huge cool coding schools, like going to the bar or whatever. So I found a school with less students, sure, where I could concentrate on learning without any stupid distractions. This is totally it. I mean I just don't have time to go to the bars, I'm to busy writing code. And now I'm starting to really get it.

    I found exactly what I was looking for. I couldn't be more comfortable as I've been learning coding from the very beginning. Sure, there are some other coding schools in BCN and I've been to almost each one of them but. I couldn't imagine myself in a group of like 20 people where everybody knows how to write a code except for me. Here I was among other 5 people and it was easier and safer.

    I don't know what am I supposed to say, really. The school is all right. I've chosen it for the location, to not to go far from home everyday. So the location is good, yes. What else. The course itself is practical. I immediately start to use new information on what I'm working on. The tutors - they're fine. So it's really all right.

    Good curriculum, very nice and professional instructors. The school is quite new, the group wasn't big, and I got a lot of attention and all of my questions were always answered, which was very important to me being a beginner. Great experience, would recommend to everyone!

    I was slightly skeptical first about being able to learn coding at all so I chose carefully and looked at all the options in Barcelona and frankly speaking it seems like there is only one focused on beginners with curriculum and approach that make sense. These guys are not trying to push everything possible inside the programme but compose it thoughtfully keeping in mind latest trends and us, students. 

    So when from the first day  of JavaScript when I realized that I am actually capable to write code I felt that I just rediscovered myself. That feeling when you build something and you can see the progress is incredible. 

    I am now not only can build apps but also the hardcore advocate for Barcelona code school and just can't stop to tell everybody how amazing the teachers are. And their campus is super cool. 5 stars.

Thanks!
