    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.

    Student(2017 July to 2018 March)

    The curriculum is great, staffs are great except the instructors. We were 36 students and by the time we reached our term4- only 23 students left as most of us didn't want to give up. 

    If you your instructors names are Michael or Luke, do me a favour, just run away. They do not worth your time,let alone $$.

    If you still decide to pursue the course, do not forget use your census date(every term ,they have to by law provide you a date,you have an option to leave the course).

    Course is ok, instructors are defenitely NOT.

    Coder Academy's fast track coding bootcamp is perhaps the only bootcamp in the world that you can do with government-sponsored student loans. The only catch of that is you have to be qualifed Australian citizens or residents to reap this special benefit. It is by far the most appealing thing about this bootcamp. 

    Overall, the experience was excellent with the just the perfect mix of student for this particular cohort of graduates. The tutors provided good mix of help and guidance without too much spoonfeeding. Some bootcampers that rely on too much spoonfeeding for their learning could not catch up and they could have been filtered earlier during the interview process.

    Mentors that gave talk to the group throughout the course were 50:50 hit or miss. Most of them were only interested in promoting themselves. 

    The arranged internship process was a disaster and it caused many people in the cohort unnecessary grief. As the bootcamp program grows larger and the intake size increases, their promised guaranteed internship opportunities will dwindle, at least the good ones. Next batch of students should plan ahead and plan strategically for their job hunt after graduation – preferably weeks in advance before graduating.

    I completed a bootcamp with Coder Factory and I can say I am a new person! 

    Being fairly new to code apart from what I had learnt from Uni, I had the opportunity to learn 2 stacks with Ruby on Rails along with the MEAN stack and reactjs which I have noticed everyone is looking for. 

    The teachers were very knowledgable and interactive with the class and we all were able to work together giving our own ideas and a good contribution. I had completed a Masters a while back and touched on more than basics of code in Java and some HTML, it seemed like I had completed a course just to do homework and come out with no real idea about development and made my views on development a weak career choice! 

    As I started to look for work it became very hard for me and it seemed like there were a whole heap of opportunities out there, just I wasn't right for the picking it seems. Luckly a friend had told me about Coder Factory and what they do and that he had also gotten a job at the end of it. 

    I had a look around at other courses and there was one that seemed similar, but then Coder Factory is an accredited course and the background on the teachers was very impressive.

    All in all, the course taught me about Agile, to build web applications, to read and problem solve someone elses code (in the past I had no idea what I was looking at!) and 2 tech stacks along with a range or commonly used tools, libraries and frameworks. 

    I had only just started with a well renound organisation and after my second week I have been offered a position after my internship. 

    So all I can say, thank you Coder Factory, you opened my eyes to the real world of development and I have a strong passion for the industry and know I can do anything in the future.

    These guys have the right hint, they're accredited, they are the right time frame as well, 6 months, to let the mind to not only accept but also grow on the skills one would have learnt. They kept everyone engaged by introducing them to relevant and influential leaders in the industry (much needed) all whilst practicing technology that is not easy but technology that is relevant.

    I found the lecturers well praticed and organised, they know what theyre doing in the competitive environment, the consistency of the lecturers helped the students communicate and connect well with the teaching style and content.

    All aspects of the web were covered and education was encouraged at every single point throughtout. They are the future of programming bootcamps in Sydney, they're honest, outcomes driven and content/quality focused.

    Dan, Pete and Raman have done a good job kicking this off the ground and the sky is only the limit for these hustlers.

    I would recommend them 100% for anyone looking to become a good programmer with a job, rather one that just lands a random job.

    All the best guys!

    PS: No one comes out "good" in three months, especially after a 0 base. Any bootcamp that sells that...well you know what they're selling

    These guys are the most disorganised bunch of misfits i have ever delt with.

    I could not be more unimpressed with this chop shop.

    They profess the "best instructors in the industry"

    Every instructor this was their first course teaching.

    Promises, promises, promises.

    The material is nothing more that what can be obtained online for free!

    They try to give the big sales pitch but they just want your money.

    Once you are in they have a like it or lump it attitude.

    Save your time and money.

    Do not do this course.

     

     

Thanks!
