Thanks for your review! WE CARE MORE AND DO A BETTER JOB!!!!! 😜 

But in all seriousness, thanks for your honest feedback. We're sorry that your experience didn't live up to what you were expecting. If you feel you didn't get the value that you paid for, please get in touch with us so we can make it right (http://www.codefellows.org/contact).

We love seeing students get great software jobs that change their lives. Our Code 201 - Code 401 curriculum is built for this purpose. 

The modular structure of our classes provides students a way to take the shortest possible path that works for them. For those with programming experience, this means testing into Code 401. We created Code 201 after hearing from many students who are starting from scratch and prefer in-person classes to unguided self-study or 150 hours of assigned pre-work.

Because Software Development is more than just knowing a programming language, Code 301 advances students' skill sets in application architecture, team collaboration, and industry best practices in front-end web development. We’ve seen and experienced how hard these skills are to pick up in independent learning. 

Our recent cohorts have roughly an 80% passing rate, and we're working on collecting and publishing more data on student results soon (see our current alumni stats here: http://www.codefellows.org/student-success-stories).

Career changes like this are a big step and require a significant time investment, so our student support extends beyond the in-class time. Code 401 is where we have the time and space to really explore professional workflows and modern stack-specific standards. Grads are ready for entry-level Software Developer roles, and we provide the ongoing resume review, interview training, code challenge practice, networking skills, and curated job leads, and supportive community needed to land and excel in a new career. 

Thanks again for your feedback, and best of luck in your coding journey. Our doors are always open to our students.

Wow, this is so awesome! Congrats! 

Thank you for taking the time to come back and share about your experience—even though I’m sure you’re busy with the new gig. Success stories like these are why we do what we do. Seriously: There are hi-fives and fist-pumps around the office with every single placement report that comes through. It’s daily motivation for us!

Once you feel settled in, come on back for a visit! We’d love to hear how your new career unfolds.

First off, thanks for being a student with Code Fellows and for sharing your candid feedback about Code 301. Our students' feedback is valuable to us and we appreciate your honesty as we continually work to improve our program. 

We're sorry that you didn't have a good experience in this course, and that you were negatively impacted during the roll out of our new curriculum. Our full curriculum is designed to take people from beginner to career-ready is as short a timeframe as possible, and unfortunately this intense pace doesn't work for everyone. Although four out of five students in Code 301 so far are ready to progress to Code 401 by then end of the 4-week course, some need more time and training to solidify new or more complex topics before they're ready to start Code 401. 

If you have any concerns that you'd like to talk about, please feel free to come in and talk to us so that we can make it right. Our doors are always open!

Thanks for sharing your honest feedback about the Code 301 course. I'm sorry that you didn't receive the value you were expecting in this course. 

At Code Fellows, we love Treehouse and Codecademy, and frequently recommend those resources to our students before, during, and after our courses. Our students often tell us that they learn more deeply when they have in-person help when they are stuck, can tackle projects with pair programming, partake in live code reviews, and receive personalized instruction. 

For those considering studying online, we highly recommend also attending in-person meetups and taking time to connect with and learn from software developers who have been in the industry for a while. Previous Code Fellows students are also welcome to come back and use our coworking space. 

We wish you the best in your ongoing learning journey. If you'd like to come in and talk about any other concerns you had about your time at Code Fellows, please let us know!

Thanks for your review! We're glad to be a part of your ongoing journey. The new program is modular for this very reason. It's awesome when programmers can jump straight into our advanced courses. While some students opt for Code 201 and 301 to get up to speed, we love that there are so many quality resources available for developers who are ready to dive into JavaScript development. Congrats on your new job and feel free to stop back by the campus to say hello!
