Barcelona Code School
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.

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!!
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!
- All the tips & tricks- 12/16/2017Saskia • Campus: Barcelona
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.
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.
- ULTIMATE WORDPRESS 3-DAY COURSE- 12/11/2017Sean • Campus: Barcelona
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.
- I liked- 9/7/2017Hanna • Designer • Graduate • Course: Front-end Web Development • Campus: Barcelona
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'm a True Coder now!- 9/4/2017Sasha • Student • Campus: Barcelona
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.
- It's just fine- 9/4/2017Jessika • Student • Campus: Barcelona
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.
