    Would surely recommend Code Institute to kick start your career in software development. Extensive support through out the course, to assit with learning challenges. The flexibility in terms of study hours, perfect if you have a day job and working to change career path. I would book tutor sessions as late as 10 to 11pm  and Guido would be happy to help, bless his soul. I truly enjoyed the backend side of development, building an api from the ground up and seeing your logic come to life.

    Pros:
    The course is done online, which means you can do it from home and in your own time. There is a supportive community available via Slack - comprising of other students, tutors, and mentors. The course itself includes text lessons and videos. The videos demonstrate how to use the language and provide mini projects you can set up yourself as you follow along. There are 4 Milestone projects that you have to complete, and the real learning happens while you are working on these. As mentioned above, there's plenty of support to help you get over the rough spots and reach your goal. Most importantly the Code Institute values feedback from students and continuously works to improve its course content.
    Students are kept informed of Events that may be of help to them and are given Career Support as they strive to find roles to match their new skills.
    Cons:
    I felt the JavaScript, dc, d3, and API videos were a bit difficult to grasp, and that they were missing basic foundation information that someone with no previous exposure to them would grasp on their own. This made the projects built using these a bit more daunting. JavaScript is not the same as other programming languages and I think it would help to have an initial video explaining the differences - e.g. assigning variables by reference, asynchronous behavior. As regards dc, d3 and APIs, again I think the videos need to start with more basic information explaining the concepts involved.

    The Course was focused in teaching the most relevant curriculum at a pace that both made you learn and challenged you ensuring you get the most benefit out of it. As the curriculum, the instructors were top class always helpful and knew how to teach. Additionally and quite importantly I may add, the after care support I find un-rivaled. All in all Code institute is invested in your future success as a software developer.

    After leaving a career in the Merchant Navy I found the Code Institute online and began researching careers in Software, from there I did the 5-day challenge and attended an open day here in Cork, after the open night I knew it was something I would pursue.
    Since starting in June the level of support received from the institute has been outstanding, the online Slack community of students, alumni and mentors is full of people waiting to help, the tutor support has been simply outstanding and the Student Care team is world-class. Coming to the end of the course I started applying for various roles and had help from Jane, the Director of Employer Engagement in the institute, where under her guidance I was able to secure a job starting in the new year, and I hadn't even finished the course yet! I've been in my new job now for 3 months and I love it. Jane's expertise was second to none and without her, the Code Institute and all its support I wouldn't have been able to secure what I can only describe as a perfect fit for me in a new role!
    If anybody is considering undertaking this course, I can only say "DO IT". It's an amazing course that not only teaches you an array of new skills but lets you take your past experiences/interests and hobbies and put them into projects that will essentially get you that job you're after!
    15/10 would recommend.
    Thank you to the Code Institute again!

    I'm currently nearing the end of my studies with Code Institute, and it's been an incredible journey! I'd never written a line of code in my life, and less than a year later, I'm working as a full time developer! The Hackathons are absolutely invaluable, I highly recommend them! They always have fantastic themes (including one where we were tasked to build a retro game), and you learn so much from doing them. Each team has a mix of abilities, so there's always something new to learn, either from more experienced teammates, or from teaching those who are less experienced. Honestly, I can't recommend it enough!!

    This is a flexible online coding bootcamp that allows career changers to get a university level qualification at the same time as building a large portfolio, getting agile development experience and guarantee job interviews with nearly 1,500 hiring partners. They also provide amazing support 24/7 and really helped me network with other developers. Most recently I took part in a Code Institute Hackathon which was in partnership with a large global tech recruitment company and had judges from lots of big name companies too. To get to work with various levels of professional developers really helped me develop professional development skills while on the course.

    Code Institute offers students the opportunity to learn code but also work on their own initiative in order to prepare students for the workplace. The slack community is an incredible community that offers help from students and alumni alike. The course material is constantly being enhanced and the course developers are really dedicated to maximising every student's learning opportunity. Another great aspect of this course is its hackathons which allow students to develop a project as part of a team and get some real collaborative developing experience under the guidance of an industry professional. The hackathons are a great learning opportunity because they present students with knowledge and skills beyond the course content and also give students a real feel for a working development environment.

    The course is really well structured and the fact the whole course content is available from day 1 is amazing. I have been able to progress through the course very fast and had nothing holding me back. The 1 to 1 mentor sessions for your projects are great. The mentor I have been given is amazing and is very clear when helping me with issues.  The community within Code Institute is very large and busy, the slack is full of amazing people and content.  The monthly hackathons are amazing! each one is very different and Interesting, I have been learning a great deal from my peers during these events.

    After only recently joining the course I decided to jump into my first ever hackathon! I got to experience what it's like to work in a team and plan out an entire project from scratch. This experience allowed me to better my skills as a developer by learning from other team members throughout the whole development process!

    I began learning in Code Institute's software development program in early 2021. It has been thorough and enlightening. I did not have much experience with coding before. In just a few short months, I'm able to create interesting websites with HTML, CSS3, and JS. I get to learn about multiple coding languages and if ever there are complications, I have great support. Along with the projects and study, we can partake in different Hackathons throughout the year.

    If you want to learn more about software development and coding languages, I would highly recommend this course. Even if you start with minimal knowledge, the materials are so understandable that you can complete it.

    The only positive thing they have is the tutors that are helpful and responsive. 
    The rest was handled terribly. This whole move from AWS to GitPod made me lose the project I almost finished. They could do nothing to restore it and eventually they just ignored this issue. In the beginning of my course, so that I was already frustrating.
    Following this, it has been 3 months since I submitted my final assignment, I heard no response on it and still no certificate.
    I contacted student care hoping this would get resolved and the issue is still not resolved by the deadline they gave me and no response to my email inquiries.
    I am at a loss of words about what a waste of money this course is. Especially considering how expensive it is. I regret wasting my own money and would never recommend this course to anyone.

    Hi,

    As you know, software development is ever-changing, and one of the biggest challenges that industries face is staying up to date with the latest developments in tech. When we became aware that Cloud 9 was going away, we informed our students well in advance. We also advised our students to move their code to a new GitPod workspace. Students were also advised to keep their code up to date in GitHub. 

    The responsibility was on students to do this, and if this was not done, we could not help after Amazon had deleted it. 

    While we do not know your identity, the information in your review resonates with a case we have worked on. In this case, we identified a once-off issue with our own assessment process. The subsequent investigation of our assessment issue resulted in a delay in that student getting their results, and for this, we apologise. 

    The student has now received their Diploma and transcript and their email was followed up as soon as possible after the aforementioned internal review.

    Kind Regards,
    The Code Institute Team

    I just received my certificate after a year of coding and studying. I know that they are a lot of coding tutorials and courses everywhere ... but the support, projects, and mentoring programs in Code Institute are the reason I can call myself a software developer...
    Not only that but the career support team are doing a great job as well to prepare students for the tech market.
    I highly recommend Code Institute for anyone wanna learn software development.
