- Great Support- 10/10/2018AndresRG • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
Coder Academy Fast Track is one of the biggest challenges I have faced during my professional life. Over the course you get to learn new technologies almost everyday, giving you the edge to become a proficient full stack developer. But all comes at a price, you need to be motivated, you need to be focused, you need to love challenges and you need to be a team player. Thanks to the teachers, the support staff and my fellow students, this journey has been hard, yet thoroughly enjoyable and very rewarding.
- Career change gamble success- 9/19/2018Isaac • Junior Developer • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Brisbane
Be me. Late 30s
Fed up with my shallow career path in woodworking, graphic design or 3d printing
I wanted something new
Not interested in 4 year degree. Ain’t got time for that shit. Gotta go fast.
Looked at coder boot camps and found one near me. Not many reviews, bit of a gamble.
Applied, got in and fell in love in the first week.
Intense classes, fantastic teachers and mentors. Taught me the skills to use in coding every day and helped me land a job 2 months before the course was over.
In a killer job and I love it!
Totally recommend it! Do it if you’re keen to hustle and learn intensely and want a job coding!
- Give me back my money- 5/7/2018Peter • Junior .NET developer • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
Teachers were as good as they can be for people that have no direction. They didn't even know what they were teaching the following day making it hard to keep up. The General Manager was useless as can be. After raising concerns she had told me it's my problem and to suck it up. Very unprofessional. I attained my own internship as their program isn't a part of the course anymore and I wasn't informed. This is just free labour now and I tell the host organisations to be very careful taking on interns as they could get into trouble from fair work and it is out of their control because of the lies Coder Academy sells to the companies. Beware, people, alot of money and time off a paid position for something you can learn on LinkedIn or Udeny or the many other courses available. There is a reason GA is number one in the market. They know what they are doing and following the rules and regulations of education.
- You get out what you put in- 8/15/2017Alex R • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
Coder Academy's Fast Track bootcamp was hands down the best educational experience I've had. All of the teachers were passionate, caring and skilled and the cohort as a whole was highly driven, intelligent and fun to be around. I've made some life long friends both in the teachers and fellow students.
Although the perfect balance hasn't quite been figured out the course as a whole does a great job teaching a combination of fundamental programming skills and cutting edge, relevant technology stacks. The work load is intense and rarely lets off during the 6 months, there's always something new to learn. The teacher's provide constant support but as the course goes on, they expect more and more self-sufficiency and individual problem solving. This was pretty confronting for a lot of students but really does prepare you for what life is like as a developer in the real world. If you need a lot of hand holding and aren't genuinely passionate about self-learning the course will be very difficult.
Coder Academy has very strong industry connections. The combination of weekly mentor visits, and a guaranteed internship gear you up for success and really help out with the job hunting process.
Overall I felt the course was comprehensive, practical, relevant and importantly, fun. A large portion of my cohort have already started work as Web Developers and at the end of the day that's what the course is all about!
- Fast Tracked My Future!- 3/30/2017Farhan Bava • Software Developer • Campus: Melbourne
I've joined coder factory leaving behind traditional bachelor degree where i was learning ancient technology that would hardly get me into workplace these days. Then came across coder factory's immersive boot camp which was recommend by my friend in industry, now highly recommended by myself as well.
Came into this course with technical support background and had no knowledge of software development and now pursuing career as software developer. During this 6 moth’s period learnt heaps and also gained work experience. Furthermore, the professors, lecturers and staff are, in my experience, fantastic!...
Overall, I have loved and enjoyed my time here at CFA and would recommend this course to anyone.
- Career Transformed- 2/19/2017Sylvia L • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Melbourne
I have recently graduated from a 6 months Coder Factory bootcamp and straight into the web development industry and I haven't stopped recommending it to all my friends and family. Searching for the right course to get into the IT sector as a developer took me 7 years in total, completing 3 Masters and a PhD but still not getting the relevant skills and confidence to get into the fast changing world of coding.
This short and intensive course is relevant and curriculum professionally done covering all the basic skills, latest concepts and framework to go out into the industry with confidence.
The friendly staff and teachers are always available to help in projects ensuring we are armed with the latest industry expectations of quality codes.
The knowledge gained, networking set-up, internship and confidence achieved within 6 months immeasurable. Great course, no regrets, highly recommended if you want your career transformed.
Thank you again Coder Factory Team.
- Life-Changing Experience- 2/19/2017Tanu • Student • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Melbourne
The Coder Factory fast track course was a life-changing experience for me, and really what I needed to make my dream become a reality. To begin with, the space is beautiful and conducive to creativity. The curriculum was in-depth, expansive, and pragmatic.
It's been a wild ride but I owe so much not just to the program, but the people Dan, Patrick, Ruegen. They were always extremely kind and helpful.
It was a fantastic jumpstart, super fast, engaging, at times overwhelming but overall awesome. I highly recommend this course.
- Yay for Ruby!- 2/18/2017Jodie Sullivan • Course: Web App Builder • Campus: Sydney
3 months ago I had never heard of Rails and had only done a couple of very simlistic Ruby syntax tutorials online. After completing this course I can confirm that whether you have a background in development or are a total newbie like me, Coderfactory caters for everyone. I can now confidently build a web app in Rails, use the console and git to my advantage and have met lots of great people along the way! Very friendly and helpful team .. highly reccommend Coderfactory as your next step to becomming a coding wizard!
- my experience as a graduate- 2/18/2017Byron • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Melbourne
I have recently completed the Fast track Bootcamp in Melbourne and recommend it as a great way of getting into the IT Sector.
Professional and Knowledgeable teachers, interesting projects and a comprehensive syllabus covering some of the most current frameworks.
Most students doing this course are focused and motivated to learn and do well. It is not easy but you do learn a lot and there is support for when you need help.
The internship placement allowed me to apply what I had learnt in class out in industry.
I found it a great way to kick start my career.
- Fast Track Review- 1/9/2017Carl Warburton • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
- CFA 6 months bootcamp- 1/7/2017Alex C • Student • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
Coming from an engineering background, I had no knowledge of any coding languages. The 6 months bootcamp in Coder Factory allowed me to get the necessary skills to be employable as a junior web developer.
Not only Coder Factory provides you with great support and mentors, the team also helps you find a job after the course. The one month intership helped me have a better understanding on how tech companies work as a team.
Coding is definitely the language of the future. Knowing and understanding the HOW behind all the tech that is around was life-changing for me.
- Great team, great support!- 1/4/2017Chi • Graduate • Campus: Sydney
Not just coding, teaching you how to learn and reskill yourself with a strong focus on getting you ready for the industry.
Great teachers with a fantastic support network with awesome mentors helping to build a professional network.
With a strong network they even provide opportunities to intern at some great tech firms.
