    Don’t do it

    I enrolled in the camp last year right out of college. To begin the recruiter was very pushy and persistent (Bill) and even though I expressed being very apprehensive about the program I  was constantly called and encouraged to enroll being told that it was for people like myself that had no computer science background. Onece I was in the program I could clearly see it was for more advanced programmers. I wasn’t able to keep up and wasn’t able to recieve much help due to the time differenc...

    Didn't think it would happen to me.

           I began studying Ruby so that I could apply to another camp; and about a year and several more self-taught skills later, I found myself on the phone with Coder Camps, since they were one of the only in-person camps in the Houston area. I talked to Christine, who made a very good connection with me and frankly made me regret not joining a bootcamp earlier. I looked them up, and mostly good reviews! She followed up at all the right times, we did more phone interviews, and within a cou...

    Learning so much!

    While I knew this 12 week course would be difficult, I had no idea how fast the class would actually go. We have a large class with a variety of ages and learning abilities. Our instructor goes the extra mile to make sure we understand. Thank goodness he has a sense of humor! Our classes are recorded so we can watch them again to review concepts that we might be struggling with. I have found that my extra effort in studying before and/or after class is making the difference to my understan...

    Terrible experience

    Many people think these boot camps are a golden ticket, they are not. Before I even showed up in Seattle, I had no unreasonable expectations.I am a self-paced learner, I had studied extensively before I showed up. I won’t go over career placement/counseling because I never expected a magic way into a job. You are the only person that can get you a job, network, build and be persistent.  I only expected the following. 

    1. A chance to code full time and get financing for the tuitio...

    4 weeks in online experience

    I'm currently 4 weeks into my 24 week online course. I just compleeted the first module whicch is scheduled for ending week 6. The learning modules are set up to thouroughly test each skillset before moving on. Obviously as with any online work-your-own-pace class you're far more responsible for your own understanding than if you were in class. That said there are always good links suggesting additional reading for each concept and as I said effective tests to sohow you where you lack unde...

    My welcoming to Coder Camps

    Today was the second day of my of summer boot camp experience. So far I'm enjoying the classroom enviornment  here on campus. The insturctor honestly does his best with giving person hands on attention, while being mindful of keeping the pace of the curriculum. Being new to coding I'm realising that the skill we take a lot of practice to truly acquire, but I feel like this bootcamp will be a huge assistance in exploring this journey.

    Recent Javascript Graduate

    I attended the Phoenix Full Stack Javascript course last spring, and I graduated in April. The class was very intense to say the least. This is a course for people who are serious about trying to make a break into the rapidly growing tech industry. The Curriculum is very fast paced, and certainly a need to study outside the classroom. The instruction was very fast paced and thorough, and the Instructor was very knowledgeable and always on point. As for the class Mentors, I can't say they w...

    Recent online grad, .net stack

    When you're looking for a .net camp, the options are a bit more limited than other tech stacks. Let's just say my company is heavily invested in the Microsoft stack.

    Chris Attaway and Brian Wood are really helpful instructors. They did a better job explaining things i had trouble with than the curriculum did, which leads me to my only real problem with the course. My biggest complaint would be the "sparse" curriculum in places. Some things weren't deeply explained, and you have t...

    A dangerous, undeveloped bootcamp

    This school is an absolute farce. I attended from September of 2016 to January of 2017 because our first teacher quite before the class was event a part of the way through, the second teacher wasn't actually familiar with Javascript, and the third teacher, while experienced, didn't actually know one of the frameworks we were to be taught (AngularJS). That last teacher I mentioned quit the school before my cohort was complete because of disagreements with how the course load ...

    Coder Camps is a great school. It's tough, but there are so many helpful staff, mentors, and students who are always willing to help. I highly recommend Coder Camps to anyone who is or has been interested in learning to code. I also highly recommend asking for Jason Jones if you're interested in applying for this school. A+ all around to everyone at Coder Camps!

    MIS major - transferred to Coder Camps

     

    Hey guys, a little about myself. I've studied management Informtation Systems at Texas Tech University. I'm 22 years old, and love everything about computers. I found that in my time at University I was extremely unprepared for practical implementation of my knowledge to the workplace.
