- Coder Academy review- 2/8/2019Mike McCallum • Past production assistant • Student • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: SydneyJoining this bootcamp was probably the best decision I've made in my adult life. I was in limbo thinking of changing careers and did not know if I could actually learn coding after already doing a degree in University. Let me tell you I was completely wrong and that this course was so worth it. The instructors here are amazing and very knowledgeable. They are trained to teach people that have never written a single line of code. After 6 months I can confidently say I am a programmer and can't wait to start on this new career journey.
- I made the leap - so should you- 2/7/2019Hamish • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
I vividly remember jumping on course report around 7 months ago, looking for some inspiration. I was keen to do development of some kind, but I barely knew how to turn a computer on at that time. I couldn’t believe some of the courses that told me I’d go from zero to developer in a month or 2. Then I stumbled across Coder’s 6 month course and thought I’d give it a crack.
Yesterday marked the last day of class, and I’ve got to say, I’m wildly impressed. Having slugged away for 5 years in university, where you’re just a student number to them, and you get cut off as soon as you finish your last exam, the classroom feel Coder has managed to achieve is phenomenal. Garret (the lead educator) is one of the best teachers and guides I’ve ever had. He’s always keen to learn, so you’re always getting up to date material. The patience he has makes you feel like it’s a 1-on-1 class at times. The support and good times don’t stop there. The rest of the staff will always checkin, make you’re fine, and have a laugh. All this makes the learning experience exceptional, and I can say that not only can I turn a computer on, I can also create real world web apps!
My advice to anyone taking the time to read this essay - commit. It’s 40hrs/week plus self-guides learning. If you’re like me, and had been living the traditional student life up til now, this will be a shock, BUT, if you get stuck in and put the effort in, the results will astound you.
My last note, when searching myself, the money was something that turned me off slightly. I actually ended up doing some calculations and realized that my whole uni degree (bachelor of business) had 864 contact hours, where as Coder has 840...and uni cost a hell of alot more than this!
- A change in direction- 2/7/2019Sinan Canselen • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
I started CA Bootcamp to start anew. I was studying marketing in Istanbul Bilgi Uni., I had a passion for coding and I came here to explore it. And my exploration has been massive. Even though the learning process in such a short time is quite hard, Coder Academy's experienced and good staff will deliver on their promises.
This course has changed the path of my life, it thought me how to think in means of coding language and computer logic. And I believe it thought me how to self learn and keep updated to any coding language other than C++.
I would recommend this to both domestic and international people who are passionate about coding and looking to take on the course where they would get to do their passion for the rest of life this is your kick starter.

I am happy with my decision to do the coder academy fasttrack bootcamp. I have learnt alot over ther past 6 month, when I started i had very little knowledge of coding and now can build my own working websites and applications.
Would definitely recommend!!!
- Amazing Experience- 2/7/2019Ivan • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
- Awesome Learning Experience- 2/7/2019Santosh Poudyal • Student • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
Going through 6 months of web development course was a great learning experience at Coder Academy for me. Switiching my career to a Developer, I need a solid understanding and foundation on coding which i got through this 6 months course.
The best part is the one month intership where you get to apply what you have learnt. Highly recommend the course.
- Coder Academy Review- 2/7/2019David Ramsdale • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
- Worth it- 2/7/2019Xian • Student • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Melbourne
Most of us were career changers so all of us had actively chosen to put our lives on hold to attend CoderAcademy. You'll find yourself going to school with people who really wanted to be there, and that in turn kept me going when I was down. The teachers wanted to see you succeed and most of them stayed back to give extra help to those who needed it. There were lots of highs and lows, a really intense but overall great experience and it flew by in the blink of an eye.
- A great decision- 2/7/2019Beth : ) • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Brisbane
This course is great if you aren't sure what you want to do. The instructors not only teach valuble content but also share their coding and industry experiences. They bring in mentors that are kind and willing to get involved with our journeys as well. Completely organised everyday and quick to adapt to any changes these instructors are Rockstars. You have to be prepared for hard work and daily information overloads Overall if you're interested 6 moths goes insanely quick when you are a part of a great cohort that accepts you and encourages growth.
- DO IT!- 2/7/2019Michelle • Graduate Developer • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Brisbane
I have loved being apart of the Coder Academy family. It is an incredibly supportive and fun community to be apart of and learn in. I have done previous study at a university, but it does not compare to the personal relationships formed between students and educators, the application of real life practical skills as well as having mentors and connections within the industry that you get from Coder Academy. It is definitely worth it and I would encourage anyone and everyone to look at Coder Academy to kickstart a career change into the tech industry.
