- Better than a Bachelors...- 3/3/2020JD Fuller • Software Developer • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Boise • Verified via LinkedInJust for context on what I'm about to say, I have been through multiple training programs in both Civilian and Military organizations. I have completed a Bachelors and taken MBA courses through a reputable college here in Idaho. I have taken classes online and in person in multiple states and schools.
I can unequivocally tell you that the program at Boise CodeWorks is more valuable to your career outlook than 90% of the currently available programs on the market - traditional college included. Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of college and love to learn. I think everyone should have a wide scope of knowledge in multiple areas. I was the one in class who enjoyed taking gen eds because I love that environment. But from a purely value driven standpoint, you will leave CodeWorks with more job ready skills than you will from the majority of Associates, Bachelors, dare I say Masters programs on the educational market right now.
The market demands tech skills and Boise CodeWorks teaches those in demand tech skills.
What Boise CodeWorks is able to do that no college program has the ability to do, is pivot and move with the market. The team and CodeWorks actively communicates with local employers and develops, modifies, and evolves the curriculum for every single cohort. Let me state that again in a different way, each 13-week curriculum is different than the last in improved ways because the program is adaptable, or agile, to the extent that they can take what employers need and alter their course ever so slightly to provide the most IN DEMAND skills.
This is how education is changing. BCW is at the forefront of the new education model.
It's not all butterflies and rainbows. Boise CodeWorks is hard. It's very hard. But, that's exactly why it's worth it. Students develop and build projects from day one and they never stop.
I have read reviews and watched YouTube videos for hours about CS Degrees VS Bootcamps VS Self taught programming when I was considering a full time intensive program like CodeWorks. I reached out to former students, read blogs, read reviews, and consumed more data than most. I have done the homework for myself and at the end of the day, I trusted the team at Boise CodeWorks.
I'm glad I did.
I started the program as a hobby enthusiast of technology with a desire to learn and zero hard skills with programming.
Now, I'm a software developer. Is there still more to learn, absolutely. Will I continue taking more classes, you bet. Do you leave the program knowing everything, absolutely not.
What you will leave with is a repository of projects completed, a skill set and fundamental knowledge of software development at the professional level. I think it's key to distinguish between professional grade software and hobby coder. BCW teaches you how to program in a professional environment with real code reviews, peer coding, agile project management, real frameworks, and a highly relevant curriculum.
While it may sound like I'm drinking the BCW kool-aid, it's important to know that I do have one major problem with the course --- It was only 13-weeks long. I would gladly have stuck around for another 13-weeks to continue the upward learning curve.
I'm really only hitting the tip of the iceberg with Boise CodeWorks. I haven't even mentioned the staff or all of the amazing things they do.
So, feel free to connect if you have specific questions, comments or concerns - I would be more than happy to answer any questions you might have for as long as needed. It's an important decision and you owe it to yourself to do your due diligence.
Also, for added context, below is my Boise CodeWorks review on Google.

- Best decision ever!- 11/14/2019Katrina Fuller • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Boise • Verified via LinkedIn
Going to Boise CodeWorks has by far been one of the best choices I have ever made. Before going here I was teaching myself how to code on freeCodeCamp after work and on the weekends. After about 8 months, I felt that coding is something I am super passionate about and needed to find a school to really help teach me what I need to know to get into this field. This school does such a great job of teaching and helping you understand the concepts in such a short amount of time. It does get stressful but they know how to keep learning fun. The projects they have you make are really cool and great for putting on your portfolio. I am happy to have graduated, sad to be leaving the school, and excited to be starting my career! I would absolutely recommend Boise CodeWorks to anyone looking to become a developer!
- Best Decision I Ever Made- 10/4/2019Catherine Buergel • Software Developer • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Boise • Verified via LinkedIn
TLDR; Going to Boise Codeworks was the best decision of my life. The staff is amazing, fun, and knowledgeable. They help you with your job search. The curriculum prepared me for my job. I love my new career.
Attending Boise Codeworks was hands down the most (and best) life changing decision I ever made. When I decided to attend a coding bootcamp I had been studying on my own at home (nights and weekends) for several months. I had hit a wall and knew I was struggling to move forward without instruction or more time to dedicate to coding. I interviewed with several Bootcamps in my home city, and it became evident pretty quick that they were diploma mills. They made me promises that were out of their control, like guaranteeing success and job placement – this seemed like a red flag to me because they had no idea what I would be like as a student or if I would be good at coding. I started to look outside of my state, and I found Boise Codeworks online. I called and spoke with Brittany, and I am so glad that I did. She was amazing; she asked smart questions to gauge my skill level, she answered every question I had, she explained the curriculum, and she never made a promise she couldn’t keep. Instead, she promised that they would do everything they could to support my success and assist in job placement, but that it would ultimately be up to me to not give up. In addition to loving the curriculum and how the class was structured, I also loved the honesty and integrity that I felt coming from Brittany when we spoke.
When I actually arrived to take the course, I was terrified, but the fear faded within the first few weeks. Bootcamps are hard; they take a lot of dedication and patience while you learn how to code, and going into it can be intimidating. However, my fear was quickly replaced by excitement as I progressed through the course. The instructors are amazing. Mark, Darryl, and Jake all have a gift for teaching. They’ve mastered the ability to create a learning environment that is incredibly effective while maintaining a sense of joy and humor at the same time. They have seemingly unlimited patience (as well as extensive knowledge); I asked each of them questions on topics that I just couldn’t quite wrap my head around, and they continually found new ways of explaining it until I could grasp it without ever showing any sign of impatience.
As a student, I also knew that my voice was heard and that I would be respected – not only by the staff, but by other students as well. Zach did an amazing job playing the role of student advocate (among many other roles, like scrum master). He had an open-door policy and made it clear that we had a right to a respectful learning environment and he would ensure that any concerns or complaints were addressed and rules enforced.
Speaking of when it comes to an end: they prepare you for it. The staff takes the time to prepare you for the interview process in a holistic manner. You get practice doing whiteboard challenges; you have an opportunity to practice answering behavioral questions and technical questions; Brittany even gives you advice on building your resume, linkedin profile, and how to network. And once class officially ends, they continue to help you network and find your fit in your first new position. They definitely helped me find my first position, for which I am grateful.
Boise Codeworks is more than a bootcamp, it’s a community. I found myself excited to go to class every day and I was actually sad when it was over. I’m so extremely grateful to the staff for all of the dedication they put in to structuring and teaching their course; every single one of them truly does want to see their students succeed.
If you’re looking to change your career into software development through the route of a bootcamp, I have two pieces of advice for you: 1) Study before you attend. Make sure you like coding before you commit to it, because if you don’t love it you will struggle. Learn some basics before you start your class because I promise you will get twice as much out of it than if you go in knowing nothing. And 2) call Brittany at Boise Codeworks and schedule a tour. You won’t regret it.
- Life Changing Experience- 5/15/2019Caleb Sherfick • Software Engineer • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Boise • Verified via LinkedIn
The services CodeWorks provides are life changing. Not only did I learn a lot from the program, I also had an amazing time making memories with my classmates as well as the staff. Every day is a blast and the staff is knowledgeable and will help you work through roadblocks, increasing the rate at which you are able to learn. After graduation the staff still works hard for you. This proves they actually care about you and your success; at CodeWorks, you are NOT just a number. CodeWorks is one of the greatest influences in my life today, and I cannot express how grateful I am to have been given the opportunity to get into a career path I enjoy and start living a life I’ve always dreamed and knew I was capable of. I highly recommend you do anything and everything it takes to make enrolling in CodeWorks possible. If you take my advice, you’ll be thanking yourself in 13 weeks.
- Immersive CodeCamp- 10/24/2018Caitlin Brooks • Full Stack Developer • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Boise • Verified via LinkedIn
Attending the immersive course at Boise CodeWorks was one of the better investments in my career that I have ever made. Each instructor is interested and commited to the success of every student that is willing to put in the work. The effort that goes into teaching the material is equal to the effort of career prep and finding a new role for us to work in after our graduation. I highly recommend anyone who is interested to take the plunge and invest in attending Boise CodeWorks.

Going to Boise CodeWorks was the greatest decision I have ever made. I couldn't believe everything I was able to learn in just 12 weeks. It can be scary to drop your whole life and just focus on coding for 3 months but I promise it is so worth it. You can tell the faculty really cares and wants you to succeed as well as help you every step of the way.
- Great Decision- 3/25/2020Marco • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: BoiseThe CodeWorks curriculum provides students with the viable, software development skills required to enter the modern workforce. The instructors are world-class, the career services top-notch, and each staff member is genuinely invested in the future and well-being of each student that walks through their doors. A student isn't just an alumnus after graduating, they're considered part of the CodeWorks family.
- CodeWorks is life changing- 5/2/2019Steven Laurino • Software Developer • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Boise
CodeWorks is an opportunity to change your life. The program is designed and proven to jumpstart a career in development. In addition to the program, the staff is next level. Instructors are extremely knowledgable and Brittany does an amazing job of helping students get placed in jobs. The atmosphere is comfortable and encourages learning at all times. I would highly recommend CodeWorks to anyone interested in changing careers or starting a career in Software Development.
- Outstanding School at an Amazing Value!- 4/9/2019Don • Software Development Engineer, Clearwater Analytics • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Boise
For anyone wanting to break into the field of software development without prior professional experience or a computer science degree, enrolling in the BoiseCodeWorks Full Stack Immersive course is the best decision you can make. In just 13 weeks (plus a few weeks of guided pre-requisite on-line training on basic programming concepts), their superb cadre of instructors will take you from programming novice to a ready-to-hire junior developer. The well-balanced, hands-on curriculum will teach you all the skills you need to succeed in your first developer job and you will build a robust porfolio along the way that you can show off to potential employers. Additionally, they will help you build resumes, refine interview skills and learn how to connect with the developer community. And their support does not end at graduation -- they will continue to advise and support you in your job search and serve as your advocate with local employers. Best of all, at less than half the price of most coding bootcamps, this course is an AMAZING value. The staff is truly commited to helping their students succeed and to building up the technical talent in the Treasure Valley. This course was one of the best training experiences I have ever had and thanks to the incredible staff of professionals at BCW, I now have a job doing something I truly love!
- BoiseCodeWorks- 9/4/2018Weston Dockstader • Software Developer • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Boise
After I graduated from College with my B.S. in Computer Science I didn't know what I wanted to do or what to do next. Through a previous CodeWorks graduate I found and signed up for the Immersive course. This course was incredible, you get to learn so much and are building projects thoughout the program. All the teachers and staff are extremely knowledgable and helpful they really make the program something special. Your really get to learn how an idea goes from paper to screen and your not just watching you are going the process and really learning what it takes. I cant really express how much CodeWorks helped me find my professional direction and how happy I am to be CodeWorks alumni I really learned a lot and I'm proud of it.
- "Learning from a fire hose - Made doable"- 7/14/2018Cameron Sharp • Software Engineer • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Boise
That is how the Immersive full stack development course at Boise Codeworks was described to me.
There is a rush of information, but the staff at Boise Codeworks is with you every step of the way to ensure that you complete AND understand the course material.
You can expect plenty of hands on work to help you shake out where you are weak, but you can count plenty of support!
In addition to how you are doing with your coursework, Boise Codeworks regularly checks in with the class to see how everyone feels they are progressing to they can adjust the coursework as needed.
They work very hard to keep the mood up beat and fun and the hackathons are a blast!
It is hard work, and will require working after class, but if you work hard you will come out the other end of this course with all the skills you need to start work as a developer!
- Learned a lot and got a job- 4/20/2017Wolf • Software Engineer • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Boise
I would reccomend this course to anyone that wants to build full stack web applications within 12 weeks. I was a biologist that was getting too bored at my day job and started coding for fun. I got pretty good at writing functions, but took this course to be able to build full stack applications. Within the first few weeks, you are already building front-end apps. By the end of the course you have a portfolio of several impressive portfolio pieces because they have been built in accordance with industry best practices. You also will have experience in building apps in groups using agile scrum.
I was a student and then a TA at BCW. My advice from what I saw from students was to make sure that you love coding before you enter the course. If you have done FreeCodeCamp and used up the web's free resources to teach you to code, but you want to learn faster and be guided by teachers that are ensuring the best coding practices, this would be a great course for you. It's fast paced and a lot of fun.
The final week of the course is a career-development week. BCW hosts local tech professionals to give talks, lunch panels, and mock interviews. Some students even get hired from the mock interviews. If you take the coursework seriously and truly enjoy coding and are doing it in your free time because it is fun, then you'll have an easy time finding a job. I had a few offers in less than two weeks, most people find jobs within a few months.
If you have taught yourself to code for several months or longer and love it, then I'd reccomend this course. You'll get a lot out of it and have no problem finding a job.
- Great experience- 4/7/2017Jason
- Amazing experience- 3/31/2017Jaime • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Boise
I was really scared about coming to Boise CodeWorks. The idea of bootcamps in general was very intimidating to me and the idea of quitting my job to take the giant leap towards a career change had me petrified.
I had been studying code on my own for about 6 or 7 months, but trying to find the time to devote to programming while working a full time job (and night shift, no less) was really difficult. I knew that my current field wasn't the right fit for me though, so I decided to take the plunge and try CodeWorks.
I can say that this has been an incredible experience and that CodeWorks has enabled me to completely change my life and follow my dreams. The instructors are really knowledgeable and able to spend extra time with you if you need it. They gave extra challenges based on skill level. Everyone was really nice too. They also have an extra week focused entirely on helping you find employment, and the daily code challenges were good practice for thinking on the spot for technical interviews.
I took the Immersive Full Stack course and being able to devote myself to coding full-time allowed me to truly flourish. I am so glad that I went to CodeWorks, and if you're thinking about it, I highly encourage you to go and at least talk to them! You won't regret it.
- Awesome school!- 9/7/2016Connor Lee • Graduate • Campus: Boise
- Very useful course- 6/28/2016Sergey • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Boise
I had an amazing posibility to utilize knowledge in fron-end and back-end development in the capstone project. With every new step of development of the project I opened new ways how to use familiar technologies and learned new ones like Node.js, APIs and Twilio.
Jack, Tom and Matt are the best teachers in Treasure Valley. The always have right words to explain a lot of new things and help you when you need.
- Very much worth it- 5/16/2016Marcus • Student • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Boise
I attended the evening Web Development course in the fall of 2015. During our course we went over HTML, CSS, vanilla JS, jQuery, Angular, Firebase, Node.js, MongoDB, C#, Agile, Scrum, etc. The course was fast and hard hitting, but worth every moment.
We were constantly challenged by Jake and Matt to improve our code, whether that meant adhering to a coding standard, or always being on the lookout to find ways to improve what we had written. We had many projects that we were assigned to complete during the course, but the culmination was in a final project that was presented to the public and potential employers at our demo night.
The group I was a part of decided to create a site who's main feature was a live chatroom using Angular and Firebase. We were able to make a real-time chat application using the processes we learned during this course, something that would have taken us much longer had we not gone through BCW. Overall I would highly recommend BCW to anyone that is looking to get a start in this industry, and that wants to learn more about programming/development as well.
- It's Worth It!- 5/11/2016Sara • Student • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Boise
During the course, we utilized the skills we were learning to create a portfolio of numerous apps and games. Towards the end of the course we worked on a final capstone project where we were able to apply all of our new skills to a project that we presented at the end of the course at Demo Night. After the course I have gotten a lot of support searching for jobs. The teachers at Boise Code Works are well known in the development community in Boise and the connections they have with businesses are strong and they’re expanding as every new class is graduating.
The best part about Boise Code Works is the teachers. Their passion for web development is contagious and it’s apparent that they started Boise Code Works because they wanted to share that passion with the community of Boise. They are very patient teachers and have the not-so-common ability to take a complicated topic and teach it in a way that beginners can understand. They work really hard, often staying way past classroom hours working to make sure that all the students succeed.
Overall, I had an amazing experience at Boise Code Works. I didn’t have much experience with web development when I started and I was able to keep up with the curriculum and learn a lot. While it was a very challenging course, the community and teachers at Boise Code Works are supportive and they worked just as hard as I did to make sure I got the most out of the course. Going to Boise Code Works is one of the best things I have done for myself professionally and I would recommend it to anyone that is remotely interested in web development and wants to learn more.
- Amazing Course- 4/27/2016Ranjit A • Graduate • Course: Immersive Full Stack Web Development • Campus: Boise
Our group was able to do a nice project involving hooking up to the twitter API which we presented at Demo Night. As Boise's premier coding bootcamp, BCW is providing a valuable service by spreading technical education across the Treasure Valley and introducing people from a wide variety of background to writing code.
I couldnt be happier with the overall experience and highly recommended BCW to interested students. They have since expanded their offerings to a full stack immersive offering as well as a ui/ux offering. So, depending upon your area of interest and ability to commit time, there is something for everyone.
