    Its not just about the finish but also the start

    Im a proud air force vet that was looking to learn a new skill. I heard a lot of good things about code fellows, but before I even reached the point of enrollment I was blessed to have a conversation with Teri. She blew me away with her knowledge and ability to answer every question I had lined up, but it was her compassion and sincere interest in my goals that put me at ease. She told me about the school, but also the beautiful world of code. She also introduced me to the 100daysofcode ...

    SO worth it!!

    The team of instructors, TA's, tutors, and administrative staff at Code Fellows provide a well-rounded experience in preparing anyone to become a qualified and capable Full-Stack Developer/Engineer. I not only know how to code: I know how to THINK like a programmer. I know how to work with other devs to build full-stack applications, even when that means utilizing entirely unfamiliar frameworks or concepts. I no longer approach new software concepts with an attitude of "I don't know" but...

    Best Job Prep, and Core Competency

    Code fellows really helped me prepare for the job market. While a lot of courses friends went through showed them how to code. Code fellows helped me understand WHY we code. They helped me understand that it's better to know HOW to solve the problem conceptually, than how to code the solution. If you know the concepts behind solving the problem, it doesn't matter what language you are told to solve it in, you will be able to solve it. But if you only know how to code the solution in one ...

    Stacked Learning BootCamp

    The Code Fellows experience was tough! They use what they call a ' stacked learning' technique where they constantly hit you with new concepts day to day. It can feel overwhelming. But after you go through it, you realize how much you've actually retained. I'd say it's pretty effective, although sometimes a bit stressful.

    Amazing Experience!

    Code Fellows is a great school built by honest, hardworking, feedback driven people who truly care about your learning experience. This is not a school that treats people like numbers to increase their ratings and revenue. They care about each and every student and understand that everyone has something beneficial to bring to the tech industry. 

    Understand though that this is a very rigorous program and it will be very challenging. This is not a bad thing though, because at the en...

    Honest Review from 2021 Grad

    I've waited six months post-graduation to give my honest feedback of my experience at Code Fellows. Not all coding bootcamps are created equal, and I hope this unbiased review helps you to decide whether or not Code Fellows (or a coding bootcamp in general) suits your needs. It may also be important to note that as of writing this (Apr 25, 2022) I have been a full-time software engineer for four months and my job is going very, very well. My previous background is a bachelor's degree in ...

    Code Fellows launched me into a new career direction!

    I attended Code Fellows in 2020 to make a mid-career switch to tech and am grateful for the experience I had. While the program was intense and the pace was fast, I always felt supported and encouraged. So far, I've worked at a startup and a FANG company and would not be where I am today without Code Fellows.
