    Great School!

    This 6 month bootcamp took me from not knowing how to write a single line of code in HTML or CSS, to creating a full-stack mobile  trivia application that talks to ChatGPT through the OpenAI API!! So, I would say I've come a long way. You also meet great people along the way that will help you get a job! Highly recommend for anyone looking to get into the business!

    Great Experience

    Found codefellows through the vettec program. After trying a previous course I was hesitant, but glad I made the decision to enroll. The ops course builds your IT knowledge with a good foundation and adds on top of that each day. Would recommend to anyone looking to start a career in IT.

    A worthy Investment

    If you are looking for a cyber security boot camp, this is it. You may stop your search! I was someone seeking a boot camp just as you are and came across Code Fellows. I can’t believe all that I have learned just in the first couple of months. I am someone who has no prior IT experience and have made leaps and bounds in progress, such as learning how to take control of your home network, running virtual machines, RDP, and entry level scripting. I would highly recommend Code Fellows!

    Worth Every Minute

    I highly recommend Code Fellows to anyone looking to starting learning software development. I initially tried learning on my own, but I would always run into some road block that I couldn't surmount and would lose interest. When I finally took the leap and committed to the full time student program I did not run into any of those roadblocks, or if I did, I had the extremely talented staff and TAs there to help me resolve my issue.  Though the course if long, 6 months in all if you start...

    The course itself is not progressing

    I attended and graduated from Code Fellows in july 2022. And have had mixed experiences with my job hunt since then. As a school code fellows does a good job of teaching you software development and programming fundamentals. But the courses lack some really important things, like a focused detail on test-driven development, In the classes, this is covered in 2 days with a gentle touch, then you are just expected to do it for every challenge and project from there on out.

    Life changing experience!

    I started my tech transition from trucker to tech about a month before attending Code Fellows. I learned the basics on my own and was able to test into their 201 program, and attend 301 and 401 full stack JavaScript. I went from little knowledge in technology to a confident full stack developer with the ability to build, troubleshoot and deploy applications. I graduated in Feb of 2023 and I feel confident as I enter the job search.
