    This is a great course!

    I just completed the ops201 and ops301 courses, and the experience has been fantastic. The curriculum is very intense and very in depth. This program explicitly focuses on applied skill rather than teaching to a cert. It will get you a long way toward preparing for your Comptia tests, but that's incidental to learning the practical work itself.
    Coming out of the 301 course I can confidently set up networks, VPNs, configure Active Directory, write complex setup scripts in bash, PowerSh...

    You get what you pay for!

    I did a ton of research before deciding on what boot camp to attend. As an employed graduate of Code fellows I can say that I more than happy with the time and money spent. Code fellows not only taught me how to be a software engineer but also taught me how to be successful within the industry and be an asset to whoever I get to collaborate with. 

    I had no experience with any language of code and basic computer knowledge. The way the curriculum is setup the pace was challenging bu...

    Join the Code Fellows Family

    If you are considering the Code Fellows program, I encourage you to apply. Through the six month program, I learned more valuable material than I did in a four year college. For people new to the tech world like myself, getting through the course was not an easy task. The program was a gruelling process, filled with sleepless nights and frustration, but the light at the end of the tunnel is well worth it. My understanding and progression of software development was exponential and I am e...

    Software Developer

    I joined the bootcamp to learn technical skills to augment my interest in data research and quality improvement, and ended up making a complete career transition into this industry. Codefellows provided a challenging, incremental and fun environment to learn. And along with great instruction, they have an extremely supportive network of graduates and industry recruiters that were able to assist me in making this transition successful.

    An Ideal University Alternative

    I was always under the impression that the university route was the only route. After three and a half years of pushing my way through school with it losing its luster each year I was eager to find a new path. When I discovered Code Fellows it was immediately clear this was the way to go, and I was not wrong! I was surrounded by instructors and staff who cared about their students. I learned more than just how to code, but how to learn how to learn. Aside from the silliness of that state...

    Fantastic time at Code Fellows

    I came to Code Fellows knowing some Python related mostly to data science and making text adventure console games. I expected to learn about Web Development and at the end feel proficient enough to build my own sites and understand the modern web better. I got a whole lot more out of it than that, the instructors I had were absolutely top notch and so knowledgeable, I feel like I learned so much information in such a short time I'm still surprised at the things I can accomplish now.

    Great Experience

    I just graduated from Code Fellows, in Seattle WA. 6 months ago, I barely knew what a boolean was. Now, I'm a Full Stack JavaScript Developer. I learned so much during my time at Code Fellows, that I really don't know where to start with this review, other than to say, if you are looking for a bootcamp to attend, you owe it to yourself to check out Code Fellows. It's difficult, rewarding, and well worth the time and money.

    Professionally enriching, personally transformative!

    It was time for a career change and I knew I wanted to get into software but the impostor syndrome was a blocker; I never thought I could learn it without going to a 4 year university. I attended an info session and learned that this is a real technologist institute, with a large, dedicated instructional team. The leaders of this organization are well connected at the Big Four and they have a profound understanding of what they're looking for in candidates these days. The game has change...

    reinventing your life

    In a day and age where everyone is offering services to teach you how to code and how to get a job in the Tech industry, many prospective students are wary. But let me tell you that at Code Fellows, they work to prepare you for the actual environment you will be put in in the tech industry.  I came here without knowing anything about code and I left being able to write full stack applications in a variety of frameworks and languages, customized to what employers are actually looking to h...

    Rewarding Experience!

    Before I decided to take courses at Code Fellows, I read so many reviews about each bootcamp. Finally I chose Code Fellows and I started my first course in August 2019. I just recently graduated with a certificate in ASP.NET Core C# in December 2019. The whole curriculum was very intense yet it was very rewarding. Here is why I love Code Fellows:
