    Coder Academy's GenTech Bootcamp is designed for upskillers, career changers and those wanting to return to the workforce through tech. Whether you want to go straight into a Junior Developer career, or prefer to get a leg up before starting uni, this course was made with you in mind. Think of GenTech as the younger sibling of our highly successful Fast Track bootcamp. GenTech could be for you if you... - have recently left school and want a career in technology, but have missed out on training - want to career change in tech - want to get into tech following a career break - are a great problem solver & high achiever, but need to build confidence in 21st century skills - want a fast track to a great career or to feeling super confident in STEM at university During our time working with schools, we’ve noticed that students aren’t receiving sufficient coding & stem training. (We’re working on it!) This means students like you aren’t quite prepared for computer science, IT, or engineering degrees straight out of school, which leads to high dropout rates - especially for young women. GenTech was designed as an intensive year-long coding course to help these students build a foundation to succeed in a stem university degree, or if they prefer, to provide access to fantastic career opportunities as a junior developer. HANDS-ON, ENGAGING LEARNING Focus on honing your coding skills in a collaborative and inspiring environment with like-minded classmates. MEET THE EXPERTS Foster strong industry relationships through coder academy’s network. With access to contacts from top tier tech companies, students develop meaningful connections with expert educators, mentors, guest speakers, and industry partners. COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT Australia has a tight-knit developer community for students to get involved in. Set yourself apart by building valuable experience while you learn. Attend industry excursions, local hackathons, and other tech events. IN-DEMAND TECH SKILLS Graduate with the most in-demand, industry relevant set of programming skills in two technology stacks – Ruby on Rails & JavaScript mern stack (mongo, express, react & node). INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE Unlike university, colleges, or other bootcamp programs, Coder Academy coordinates a structured one month cadetship in industry. To enhance student learning, a key component of the GenTech program is introducing students to experts from industry and getting them comfortable with what is expected in the workplace. Coder Academy brings in numerous mentors from big tech companies like Atlassian, Gumtree Australia, and Amazon Web Services, and more, as well representatives from startups and agencies. Outside of the classroom, students are encouraged to partake in community tech events like hackathons, Meetups, and excursions. Unlike most education providers, Coder Academy is passionate about ensuring all of our students gain industry experience during the course of their study. During GenTech, students will partake in a 4-week long cadetship with anywhere between one and four companies in order to build connections, and better understand the demands and opportunities in the workplace. Students are matched with appropriate cadetship providers based on their career aspirations and performance during the bootcamp.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Now I can read and understand serveral coding languages: HTML, CSS, Ruby and Javascript, I can make static websites as well as more complex web applications.

    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.

    With a strong network they even provide opportunities to intern at some great tech firms.
