    A waste of time and money

    I do not recommend this school to anyone. The availability and attention of the mentors is limited and they are consistently overwhelmed by the high number of students. Additionally, issues with bugs and errors were present in a significant portion of the curriculum. The cost of the program is excessive and the promised accreditation from the Ministry of Education has not been delivered. The job guarantees and partnerships with companies advertised by the school are not reliable, and if ...

    They deliver, even if everything is sugarcoated

    About me:
    This section is just so that you can gauge if what I wrote below applies to your situation. I learned programming mostly on my own and only became a Codecool student because I found I needed help in getting a job. I also followed the courses of another company (Scoala Informala de IT <- would not recommend), but this was after I had a decent understanding of the Java programming language. I started learning Java at about 32 years old, and I joined Codecool when I was 36. ...

    Dissapointment

    Am amanat mult scrierea acestui review, ma gandeam cum sa fiu mai concisa, mai obiectiva si cum sa includ tot. Dar mi-am dat seama ca poate niciodata nu o sa reusesc. Drumul meu cu Codecool a fost lung, a insemnat multe si a avut un impact puternic (atat pozitiv cat si negativ).

    Am mai scris un review pentru Codecool la sfarsitul anului trecut pe Google, nu mai tin minte cuvant cu cuvant ce am scris dar era numai de bine. Am scris ca a fost cea mai buna decizie, aceea de a face ac...

    Unprofessional, they only have excuses and no solutions [Codecool.Romania]

    The first attempt to enroll in Codecool Romania Bootcamp was last summer. For two months, since being accepted as a student, I asked for a contract almost every two weeks or so but every time they postponed sending one. Just a week before the Bootcamp should have started, they emailed me a copy. The excuse they used for the delay was totally unprofessional: "We did not receive the contract from the law firm". I received this excuse on the 9th of September, the day that should have been t...

    Great School

    I used to go to Eötvös Lóránd University Computer Science division for 3 semesters before CodeCool. What I learned there during that time was taught to me and every other student in the first 3 months in CodeCool. As opposed to university, in CodeCool you are not required to spend your valuable time learning unnecessary, useless information, but only the things you actually need to know for you to become a software developer. You will be forced to work in teams of 2 - 5 people therefore ma...

    Life-changing course into IT

    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 the...

    Best school in my life!

    All the needed knowledge and skills in a friendly and motivating environment. Thanks to the concept of mastery based learning your progression is flexible and give chance to work in your own pace. Transparency, courage, fun and quality are real core values that you can experience every day.   If your financial state worries you it's a perfect choice, because you've got the 1/4 of the time for trying out the school only for 20 000 HUF and if ...

    Outstanding!

    Codecool is a fantastic place to start to learn the basics and the intermediate level of programming. During the course, I learnt a lot about different languages like python and java, had to use some of the best tools for application development, and they gave me confidence to share my ideas with a team, or to speak in front of audience. When we are graduated in the school, we are almost immediately started to work for a company with two of my former classmates. Before Codecool I worked in ca...

    Life changing course

    If you want a real practice oriented course during which everyone is commited to improve your soft skills (communication, presentation, conflict handling, teamwork etc) as well, choose Codecool. During my studies I not only developped programming skills but also became more confident and determined about my professional life. It gives a relavant, up to date knowledge and all the support (hr, network, interview preparations) to help you to get a software developer job. It really was a lifechan...

    Best educational methodology & great mentoring!

    I've started Codecool after 2 university degree's (BA and MA in psychology) and the strangest thing I realized is that Codecool offered me more during 1 year than 5-6 years of university. Just to name a few: a lot of practical experience in realistic projects; information about the opportunities in the job market, tons of problem solving and soft skills.
