- Opens doors to amazing opportunities- 2/24/2020Carlie Hamilton • Software Engineer • Graduate • Course: Flex Track Bootcamp • Campus: Brisbane • Verified via LinkedInI took part in the flex track at the Brisbane campus, and can not rave enough about it. Taking the course was the best decision I have ever made. It is highly practical and teaches you skills that make you desirable to future employers. This course opens doors and opportunities for you. Like anything, you get out of it what you put in.
I went from knowing HTML and CSS to being able to create fully functional web applications. Not only is the content practical, the assessment becomes your portfolio you present to employers. The course not only teaches you programming, you also learn and develop other core skills that will allow you to stand out in the workforce.
The staff at Coder Academy are supportive. Because of the small class sizes, they are able to pivot and teach you in ways that you need. Non academic staff also support you. They want you to succeed.
The course exposed me to many people in the industry and opened the door for me to get a part time software engineering role while studying, and also ultimately a full time position at the end of my course.
I can't recommend this course enough.
- From 0 to 100 in 6 months- 2/12/2020Nick Fletcher • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Brisbane • Verified via LinkedInMy time at Coder Academy has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I started the course with knowing a few things about coding and by the end of it I now know how to create apps with 100's of lines of code. The people i've met over my time at Coder Academy have been such a big help with my journey and i now call them friends. The staff at Coder Academy are also one of the major reasons why I loved my time at Coder, they helped me land an amazing opportunity doing an internship at an amazing company and i'm thankful for everyone at Coder Academy for making my 6 month journey amazing. I seriously recommend anyone who wants to take up programming to give this course a shot cause you will not be disappointed.
- Incredibly beneficial- 2/12/2020Ashley • Student • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Brisbane • Verified via LinkedInExtremely useful and practical course, taking me from a bartender with an empty Github to actually being in the industry with multiple projects under my belt. The instructors we're extremely helpful and positive and the other students we're absolutely the best. I can't recommend this course enough.
- from 0 to Coding Hero- 2/12/2020Alex Leybourne • Graduate • Campus: Brisbane • Verified via LinkedInCoder Academy has been one of the best things I have done in my life, from both an Academic and Social perspective. I would have never thought you could learn and do so much within 6 months of a fast-tracked course but here I am today with more knowledge and confidence than I could have imagined. Going from knowing how to scrape together a basic Html website to creating full web applications with amazing people. If you are thinking of taking the plunge to learn web development then I can't recommend Coder Academy Enough!
- So Practical So Learning- 2/7/2020Lukey P • Career changer • Student • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney • Verified via LinkedInThe experience at coder academy is, first and foremost, super practical. During the 5 months I've created a number of apps and am inspired to create more and more. As far as staff goes - The educators are wizards, student services are warm and fuzzy pikachus and my fellow aspiring Devs are kings and queens. Love em all
- Genuinely great experience- 2/7/2020Alex Kentwell • Student • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney • Verified via GitHubIt is one of the best learning environments that I have experienced through my studying over the years. The teachers are brilliant, friendly, and willing to answer almost every question you have.
The fast teav course is challenging, but also very rewarding.
One piece of advice I would give if you get in, is ask as many questions as you can while you are there.

- A great experience!- 2/7/2020Robbie • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney • Verified via GitHub
- Enrolling at Coder Academy changed my life. I was so apprehensive and nervous to call up and ask about the course but I don’t regret a single moment
Thanks to CA, I’m off to my first internship and excited to start my new career as a software engineer when six months ago I had never touched code in any capacity .
- An amazing learning experience!- 2/7/2020Ewe Lin Loo • Graduate • Course: Flex Track Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney • Verified via GitHub
- Good Stuff- 2/7/2020Angel Lopez-Andrade • Student • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney • Verified via GitHub
- Exactly what they advertised- 10/21/2019Scott O'Dea • Full-Stack Developer • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney • Verified via LinkedIn
6 months out of Coder Academy Sydney now, and have to say they delivered on everything they promised. Having witnessed 95% of the class now working as professional developers, I felt obligated to write a review.
Being in the industry now for a short time, it amazes me how impressed developers from a more traditional background are with the quality of coders coming out of the Coder Academy Bootcamp. A recruiter at my work now exclusively seeks out resumes from Coder Academy and has hired 5 people from the course.
The staff are friendly, the teachers experienced and the course seems to attract a dynamic range of great people from a whole lot of backgrounds who are keen to learn and connect.
I've made some great friends and no longer dread Mondays. What more could you ask for?
