    Best Option in Tokyo

    Code Chrysalis is a fast-paced, well-rounded bootcamp for anyone looking to break into the Software Engineering space. I couldn't have asked for a better curriculum, given the short amount of time common with most bootcamps. There is also room for students to pursue their own interests, tools and, technologies. I would encourage you to make the most of this opportunity because, what you get out of it is truly what you put in. If you want to come out of this bootcamp qualified for full-st...

    The C stands for Community

    I was in a real rough patch in 2020. I got cancelled from a job before I could sign a contract due to sudden Covid hiring freezes, I got put on ice from the part-time job I found because the eikaiwa closed due to covid. by June I lost pretty much everything save for my 2m x 4m room. I Spent most of my savings on a move to Tokyo for the hope of growth and instead was a week from packing my bags, calling it a failed attempt and going home.

    Taking Code Chrysalis gave me an opportunity.

    I'm Filipino currently living in the Philippines. Before taking code chrysalis, I dropped out of college at my 2nd year of Physical Therapy due to personal issues. However, that didn't stop me from wanting to learn something new, I decided to teach my self a bit of code for months on and off because it can get unmotivating at sometimes. When I realized I needed to change because it's not going to work, I decided to take the Foundations class. I figured that this will not only give me the...

    Getting in wasn’t easy. Going through it was much more difficult.

    Trying to handle a different tech each week - all with the lack of sleep caused by the work on the previous sprint and the preparation for the next public talk about a framework/library/language that I never even heard of just a month before. 
    It was tough. 

    And I enjoyed every single moment of it.

    Being around so many brilliant, like minded people that share the same goal. A collaboration that created an unparalleled environment where you get no other option...

    Career change in 40s

    I have had a variety of jobs over the past two decades, none of which were technical. Nor were my previous studies  technical in nature. I was working in regional Queensland and I had become interested in coding. While I had done some some self study, I lacked a coding community to learn from and gain direction from. 
    After researching a number of bootcamps in America, Australia and Tokyo, I chose to attend Code Chrysalis due to a balance of reasons. Cost, time, ...

    The three things make Code Chrysalis superb. I guess.

    Code Chrysalis is an excellent coding bootcamp. There's no doubt that the course curriculum itself is outstanding. You can learn software engineering with the Bay-area latest style while living in Japan. It teaches you to become autonomous.

    However, since a lot of ex-students have already written about the application process and what the immersive course is like, I'd like to share the three best things about Code Chrysalis beside the course itself.

    Now it's your turn, be happy!

    I was working for many years as a software engineer in Japan but it was not so challenging. So I wanted and decided to challenge absolutely different things with international people. Luckily I found Code Chrysalis which is perfectly matched to me.

    Code Chrysalis gave me many different kind of experiences, not just learning and working with international people but also key things to be an autonomous expert (includes body relational exercises). All I have done here were so valuab...

    Not exaggerating: Code Chrysalis was life changing.

    I am an American born and raised with some background in Shanghai. After graduating college as an Electrical Engineering major and working at a stale job for a year, I decided that I wanted to do something more challenging and more in demand so I started learning programming in my spare time. I was looking up coding bootcamps when I saw a news article on Code Chrysalis and found that it was a bootcamp in Tokyo. It has always been my dream to work in Tokyo so I thought this was literally th...

    From Ballet to Coding (Can you imagine?)

    A year ago, I was a professional ballet dancer, who did not even know the difference between software and hardware. Now I am working as software engineer at the startup in Tokyo. Can you imagine?

    It was last summer when I joined Foundations Course of Code Chrysalis, one-month curriculum of JavaScript for an absolute beginner. I was very impressed by the depth of teachers' understanding in JS - but more than that, I could not believe they are just the graduates from CC's three-mon...

    Changed my career

    Before I discovered Code Chrysalis, I was working as an English teacher for an elementary school in Japan. I really enjoyed my job, but there was no chance for me to progress. As such, I didn't really feel like I had a career at all.

    I discovered Code Chrysalis in July of 2017, when I attended a meetup called 'Intro to JavaScript'. It was my first encounter with coding, and I immediately knew it was something I enjoyed. I spend around 6 months learning by myself, before successfull...

    Uncomfortable Being Comfortable

    After working as a DBA for many years I had the unique opportunity to spend the time to learn some new skills. I had some options for this, but I will always be glad that I chose Code Chrysalis. The technologies we learned (JavaScript, Git, Express.js, Node.js, GraphQL, REdis, Kafka, the list goes on) more than met the expectations of what I wanted to learn, but what I hadn't expected was learning a new mindset.

     

    The immersive course isn't just about learning how to write ...

    Become an international Fullstack Engineer from Japan

    I have graduated from the immersive program on June 2018.

    The reasons I selected Code Chrysalis from a lot of similar programs in Japan are: 

    1. JavaScript: The program uses JavaScript as the main language because JavaScript is the only language work in web browsers. 
    2. Fast-learning skill: Engineers are expected to have a lot of knowledge and experience, here you experience like a drinking water from a fire hose. You cannot avoid getting this skill.
