    Lack of respect

    I graduated from Code Fellows' iOS Development Accelerator in September, 2015. I did all coursework and attended all lectures. The way they graded us was a mess, and it was really not clear the "weight balance" between homeworks, projects and whiteboard tests.

    I submitted all homeworks and projects, and did not pass the whiteboard exam. Our instructor mentioned to us, that you would get the certificate if you passed the whiteboard exam. Great, so, he gave us a couple of minutes a...

    Game Changer

    Attended Code Fellows starting from their 201 class, all the way up to 401. I came into the courses with little to no prior experience to coding. However, I didn't find that many difficulties completing through the curriculum, mainly thanks to the wonderful staff. Everyone who works there were nice, open, and very easy to talk to. They all seemed to genuinely care for your success in coding.
    The curriculum is good. It's hard to judge how good it is as I have not experienced anything be...

    JavaScript track

    I started my journey at Code Fellows back in August 2017.
    I decided to enroll in the nights and weekends track and see how I liked it, I fell in love!
    The environment at Code Fellows is great, everywhere you look you see passionate developers, instructors, TA's. Everyone there has a simple goal to help you become the best developer that you can be.
    Now it's not easy, there are times where I felt like I was just not getting things and I would struggle to grasp things and the str...
