- Avoid it- 2/5/2018Anonymous • Graduate • Campus: Sydney
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.
- Best bootcamp for Australian residents- 7/29/2017Anonymous • Web Developer • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
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.
- Intensive Bootcamp- 12/16/2016Anonymous • Junior Developer • Graduate • Course: Fast Track Coding Bootcamp • Campus: Sydney
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.
- They are the much needed pinch of salt- 9/5/2016Anonymous • Campus: Sydney
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
- Warning. Horrible. Overpriced- 8/31/2016Anonymous • Student • Campus: Sydney
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.
