As a recent grad of Coder Academy Sydney I can attest to the great reputation and reviews the course has. It has been influential on changing my study process, and has opened me up to a new world of learning and opportunity.
The course can be quite intense, and the immersion of a full 9-5 week coding is a great method of getting students in a mindframe of learning large amounts of content in a short period. There is a heavy emphasis on networking and industry skills, as well as a constantly updated curriculum ensuring you are studying the latest industry standards, which I believe is a great asset not afforded to traditional university students.
The internship at the end of the course is also both a great motivating factor during study, as well as an invaluable opportunity to get your foot in the door of industry and continue your learning in a supportive environment.
- It was really full on- 2/7/2020Wayne • Full stack developer • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
- A great experience for all.- 2/7/2020Phillip • Student • Course: Flex Track Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
- Career change ready- 7/25/2019Alex Baulderstone • Student • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
I’ve undertaken a bit of tertiary study and this was by far my favourite – and most challenging – experience. The curriculum is incredibly up to date, relevant to industry trends and best practices, and well designed. Although the pace is lightning fast, the deep immersion learning environment helps you learn at a speed you wouldn’t have thought possible; I feel like I’ve picked up more here in the last six months than I over three years at university.
The coursework is seamlessly integrated with industry relevant learning that is peripheral coding: git and version control, agile development methodologies, project management, and a whole host of other skills that make a great developer.
It’s a big commitment and you’ll get out of it what you put in, but the staff are passionate about sharing their skills, adept at teaching, and incredibly generous and supportive. Even if I was struggling with a concept I never felt out of my depth as I knew I had a solid support system to help me.

- Juanma • Student • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
I strongly recommend this course to everyone trying to enter the dev industry. The teaching techniques were so unfamiliar, original and innovative for a guy of the old continent, that it has been an eye-opening experience.
Moreover the staff encourages such a nice and supportive environment that it spreads through all the cohourt.
Better course of all my life.
- Best place to learn coding!- 7/25/2019Tyson • Full Stack Web Developer • Student • Campus: Sydney
I just completed the Fast Track Coding Bootcamp and feel my brain is about to burst from all the knowledge crammed into my mind but I can honestly say it was worth it.
After only 5 months of learning, I am already able to easily communicate with other senior devs and tech people in the community and actually understand what they are talking about.
It was definitely worth the investment.
- A lot better than my experience at uni- 7/25/2019John • Student • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
After a few years out of study and looking into getting a career in web development, I researched several different options. I initially enrolled in a master's at university, but after a few weeks of class and looking at the curriculum I felt that the content was too shallow and would not get me to where I wanted. So I looked into bootcamps, Coder Academy had a good curriculum and the length of the course felt appropriate compared to the other bootcamps.
Six months later, I have now completed the course and I can say it's the best educational program I've done, the content is very relevant and up-to-date and the environment is very friendly and supportive. I made a lot of good friends and learned a lot. So I would definitely recommend this course to people wanting to get into web development that want a more practical education or don't have the time to commit three years for a degree.
- Changing countries && careers- 7/25/2019Bruce McClure • Student • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
From a professional perspective:
CA has an incredible program that enables its students to enter into the web development world. I would highly reccormend this course. Some aspects to be made aware of are: the 6 month time period (anything shorter is insane), they help place you in an internship and finally it is acreddited which means you finsish with a diploma. The educators are well prepared and have extensive industry experience. The administative staff are professional and very welcoming.
From a culture perspective:
I moved to Australia a few days before starting this course. I made friends within the first day that will last a lifetie. There are few experiences that can compare to CA.
- What a Rollercoaster- 7/25/2019Ari • Student • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
It's insane to think of how much I've learned and how far I've come over the course of the past six months as a student of Coder Academy's Fast Track program (first half 2019). I went from not knowing how to code to having an understanding of two separate programming languages, html, css, and varioous web development frameworks. I still consider myself a beginner programmer, but Fast Track allowed me to jump start my career and set me on a path of lifelong learning with a strong nudge in the right direction.
If you're considering Web Development as a career path, I cannot speak highly enough of the Coder Academy course. One thing I will say is this - if you enrol and you want to make the most of it, you MUST revise what you are learning, continually. You will come far without revision, but if you truly wish to maximise your learning, then revise revise revise. Revise, and supplement your learning outside of class, and you will emerge from the course a confident junior level (or even mid to senior level) developer.
