Take one year of your life and gain sufficient knowledge and skill-set to be efficient as a junior software developer. What is most important, you will get tools and experience in how to acquire more knowledge on your own later on, simply through the internet, to further improve yourself if need be. You will also learn how to work on specific projects in teams of 4-5 people, as this is a practice oriented course. You are also provided with the essentials and help from mentors to master theoretical background for the relevant technologies.
If you ever seriously thought of working as a developer but never really dared to start, this is the right place for you. One year of hard work that pays off multifold.
The environment is great, pleasant and very friendly. I liked the non-frontal approach to education, it was very effective. Apart from hard skills, I think the most important parts were the soft-skill sessions. It helped a lot, not just to be a better worker, but to be a better person. This school has really all the elements, what needed to start a good carrier as a programmer.
TL;DR: you want to be a software engineer / developer but also want to improve your soft skills, meanwhile at the same time you want to have fun? -> you are looking for Codecool!
If you want to learn software engineering this is the best place you can choose! The course starts at a beginner level -as no developer background is necessary- and you make your progress to advanced levels of programming and not to mention that you make friends meanwhile.
The atmosphere is fantastic, the people you work with everyday are very friendly, helpful, open-minded and you can find a lot in common with them. I have to mention that this is a practice-oriented course, which means that there is an A and B week. On the A week, you are home - yeah, I mean really, you stay at home, but you are always welcome in the office - learning and progressing with the curriculum and put it in practice with a fun little practice task. On week B you are in the office with your team working on a larger project (usually a few weeks long) in sprints. You work in a team of 4 which is changed every 6 weeks or so to make you adopt to the changing situation and to experience what it's like to work with others. On every friday you present what you have acomplished during the week to the others and the mentors.
The mentors are always there if you need any help! They are very experienced and wise people, who always try their best. Mentors try not to tell you the answers directly but make you realize what the problem is, where it is coming from and what could be possible answers. They sit down with you, help you with the research and solving the problem.
About my background: I changed to Codecool from a university because I wanted a more practical knowledge, made this step and I did not regret it, not even once! I would recommend Codecool over any university in Hungary if you had enough with theoretical knowledge and want to put your skills into practice.
Oh about skills, have I mentioned that at Codecool they placed great emphasis on soft skills also? Growth mindset, transparent communication, feedback sharing, you name it, they got us covered.
I'm very well satisfied with Codecool.
