- Tough, but so very worth it- 1/3/2020Drew Russell • Full Stack .NET Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Immersive • Campus: Greensboro • Verified via GitHub
I came into the course with passing knowledge of front end web development, but it was nothing near the level of what is taught in the course. This is a boot camp not a laid back college style class. You will be pushed, you will wonder if you're going to make it, and in week 12 I looked back at my week 1 code and wonder how I ever wrote code that rough.
Jason / Antonio (main instructors) and Greg (TA) are both knowledgeable and, more importantly, approachable. In addition to teaching the requirements they also make themselves available to help with any tangents a student might go on.
While there are no group projects or group work collaboration between students is encouraged. Students who are further along are encouraged to assist other students, this both saves instruction time and reinforces the knowledge of the student doing the teaching.

- This Place Is The Real Deal!- 9/26/2019David • .NET Software Engineer • Graduate • Verified via LinkedIn
I can't express how amazing this bootcamp is. After having a terrible experience with another program, I felt that I would never be able to successfully pursue this type of career, but Coder Foundry changed that for me. The staff here is so friendly and inviting, and they truly care about your success. Their support goes far beyond just teaching the cirriculum here, as they spend so much time focusing on developing your career and finding placement for you. I wasn't even able to complete the course because they found a position for me! They really went above and beyond to ensure that I got hired. They believe in what they are doing and will push just as hard as you do for your success. I won't lie, it is not an easy feat, and it certainly isn't for everyone, but if you put in the effort and truly dedicate yourself, wonderful things will happen. Coder Foundry can make dreams come true!
- Great program, great people- 9/18/2019Derrick • Software Developer • Student • Course: Full Stack Immersive • Campus: Greensboro • Verified via GitHub
Fast Paced. You'll be expected to attend class every day. A normal day will consist of around 1-2 hours of "lecture" where you'll go over how to impliment a particular feature, how to improve code you've already written, or some computer science theory stuff. After that you're open to work at your own pace and ask questions when they come up. You'll need to be able to manage your time appropriately to deliver on a weekly basis. For reference, I was driving 2 hours there, in class 9:00 to 5:00 (with a lunch break), driving 2 hours back home, and then working on my project deliverables at home for around 2 hours. Some people will have to spend more time outside of class, others will have to spend less. You need to have the discipline and motivation to do whatever it takes to succeed.
Awesome Staff. My instructor also created videos that he shared with us during his lectures so if you need to go over something again you have the luxury of going over it as many times as you need to for it to sink in.
Weekly Results. You're expected to finish project deliverables on a weekly basis. Mondays are interview days where you'll do a mock interview about the previous weeks delieverables. In the mock interview you learn how to talk about the code you've written, so it makes you very comfortable when the real interviews start to come up. Every week I felt I was getting better and better at what I was learning.
Employment. In regards to job placement, they have tons of connections with companies looking for developers. We even had demo days where we got to show some of our projects to potential employers which lead to interviews and job placements. By week 10, 7 of the 22 students either had interviews lined up or were already offered jobs.
TL;DR - Best investment in myself that I ever made. If you're serious about trying to make a career in web development this is a great place to put you on the fast track for it.
- Xamarin One Week Review- 11/19/2018Jim Black • Course: Xamarin Mobile Development One Week Workshop • Campus: Greensboro • Verified via LinkedIn
Antonio was a great instructor for this one-week boot camp on Xamarin Mobile Development.
This was my first experience with CoderFoundry and first Mobile Development training and I was quite impressed. The instructor is well educated and/or experienced in Xamarin Mobile Development and the surrounding technologies including MVC and WebApi. The class was all hands on, no lectures and taking notes. Detail reference material was handed out and was very helpful. All development projects were real-world sample projects that we worked with and added features to it, expanded it's abilities or tweaked the UI.
As with any leading-edge technology training, we had our fair share of issues that slowed or delayed training, but nothing too serious. Most of these issues were caused by NuGet package updates that were unplanned since the previous month when this course was taught. Well, these issues are occurrences in .Net developer’s everyday life and you need to know how to understand or debug the problem, research and update the correct NuGet packages.
Being a seasoned Microsoft .Net developer, I had hoped for more in-depth coverage of Xamarin Forms and all its controls, but to attract a broader range of students with different experience levels, the class also included training/review in WebAPI and SQL to access the data for the mobile app. Other classes within an hour and a half drive offer the same similar curriculum. Overall the class covered a good basis to begin Xamarin Mobile development to grow from.
My employer had an existing Xamarin iOS application that I need to take over maintenance and development, Antonio also helped me learn how to configure my Mac and Visual Studio on my laptop to work together. THIS was a great help.
I would recommend this class to any Mid-Level or Sr. Level developer that is needing to or wanting to expand their development onto mobile devices.

- Fantastic Course!- 9/13/2018Brent Davis • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Immersive • Campus: Greensboro • Verified via LinkedIn
Coder Foundry is an amazing course that teaches current and up-to-date information that can actually help you get a job in the current market. The hands-on approach used there makes it much easier to learn. The course is difficult, but the teachers are all very well experienced and eager to help every step of the way, even helping outside of class hours if need be. They also do fantastic work with the job placement service at the end of the course. I would recommend Coder Foundry, just a fantastic course overall!
- Great course taught me a lot!- 8/13/2018John Mahoney • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Immersive • Campus: Greensboro • Verified via GitHub
During this course they taught me a lot of knowlegde that is used in the industry. While the course is hard it's well worth it. The teacher was great! He was very helpful thoughout my entire time there. Overall this is a very good course that I would reccomend.
Coder Foundry is an excellent place to learn a new career in programming. Before enrolling in to Coder Foundry, I was working two jobs and was still struggling to make a decent living of just paying the bills. I knew I needed a change and desperately was still looking for a way into the computer technology industry that I had been trying to get in to since I graduated from college with a Bachelor's degree in the field of Computer Science. When a lot of companies would look at my resume and see an educated track record but no hands on experience using what I was taught, Coder Foundry trained me hard by teaching me the hands-on approach of creating code for fundamental real world job experiences to not only prepare you for how it works in the real world but also to be better equipped to succeed after obtaining that job. Coder Foundry has changed my life for the best possible chance at not just getting a career that I love but planting the fundamental pieces to grow stronger than the compeition. Although the work load can be strong and feel overbearing at times, to counter this the class size is fairly small. This gives you time to be addressed individually if neccessary during critical points in the session. While the instructors have different strong points, both are great at helping you learn the key points you need to understand to become better at your skill in programming. No instructor is too busy as well. They both are ready and willing to help you, during reasonable hours of course, at any time if something is troubling you or you just are having a hard time understanding something. But upon completion of this program, you will leave for the better, and be the best equipped for the opportunities that come afterwards.
- My Coder Foundry Experience- 5/9/2018Meghan Combs • Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Accelerated • Campus: Greensboro • Verified via LinkedIn
In general Coder Foundry is pretty wonderful, however in my review I do want to mention things I'd like to see improved.
What I loved:
- Because of the depth Coder Foundry's teachers went into when it came to developing, I'm very comofortable with C# and Object Oriented Programming concepts. I can now gab about them with ease in an interview
- The passion of the teachers at CF and staff at the adjoining company, Core Techs, is commendable. I always felt valued and listened to as a student, and the teaching methods were stellar (Jason and Antonio ROCK!)
- Having a visible portfolio with well thought out projects really helped me show off my skills as a back-end developer and a creative person (my background was in art history). I know it helped me land the position I have now at a great start up in Raleigh.
- Unfortunately I was part of a cohort whose education stopped mid-way through the course. CF was forced to close for a few months due to funding issues, however they did re-open in February. I elected to return to CF, but had to restart at the beginning of the course. This was actually beneficial because I could perfect and solidify what I had learned. Where improvement was needed was at the end of this new curriculum, which became hodge podge. I had to start and restart projects because the focus of the instructor would change. I would've liked a continued consistency in my learning experience.
- I wish they would've gone into more depth with important information developers need to know, like HTTP, how the web works, SQL and data manipulation, and languages like Angular and AJAX, which are consistently asked for by employers.
- I wish they would've added a team project. Several companies have asked me about working in a team of developers, which I unfortunately do not have, as our projects were always individual. Maybe the Bug Tracker could be a full team effort in the future?
If you're considering a coding bootcamp, just make sure to do your research on what companies are looking for. Coder Foundry is a great way to learn .NET, C#, and other Microsoft technologies, but is the company you want to work for hiring for that? That being said, Coder Foundry does teach you how to THINK like a programmer, so even if the languages they teach aren't spot on, you'll be able to learn what you need on your own after learning the basic concepts of programming. Overall, I would recommend Coder Foundry. It is a good company with great people. It can definitely get you where you need to be if you're changing careers.
- Life Changing!- 5/4/2018Reid Thompson • Software Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Immersive • Campus: Greensboro • Verified via LinkedIn
I drove 1.5 hours every morning and again every night to attend. This was easily worth every penny for the tuition and my gas. Never before have I looked forward to Mondays.
Programming is not for everyone, but anyone can do it. This course was 12 weeks of constant information, constant programming, constant breaking things, and constant fixing things. Yes, the work day was 8 hours long (9-5), but to get the most out of it, myself and most others continued working afterwards and on the weekend, but any job in this field is going to be like that. It's a field with constant growth and updates, and as developers you have to be leading the charge if you want to stay relevant, and this course helps with that.
In addition to actually teaching the languages, Antonio (our instructor), taught us how to ask the right questions. You're never going to learn everything about every programming language. There's too many, and they're all too robust and vast, what's more important, and what Antonio made sure to point out on the first day, is having good resources and knowing what the right question to ask is.
The curriculum was fast paced, but it was carried out in such a logical way that everything built on the things we did before. The first project was just getting us familiar with the Visual Studio IDE while having us begin our online presence. The second project introduced the meat and potatoes of what we were doing. The third and fourth projects were garnishes and fine dining presentation (to continue the metaphor). That's not to say the second project was the hardest. I'd say the third one was, but that's because we were cut loose. We had been given the tools, the rest was up to us. If we had questions, Antonio was available during class time and after hours as well, but the better option would be to ask our peers or start building and using our pool of resources.To Antonio's credit, if you asked him a question, you were not immediately given an answer. You were guided to the answer. How else are you going to learn something?
Lastly, the job assistance is real. Throughoiut the course we had mock interviews to prepare us on how to showcase our apps. Additionally, we were taught the basics we needed to be able to handle any of the interview questions. Class vs Interface? I got you bro. Abstract vs Concrete class? Got you there, too. Need me to reverse a string or write a fizzbuzz method? Yep, I can do that. Overloads and Overrides? Let me give you examples of both.
All of these questions are common interview questons or whiteboarding problems. All of which we could do (assuming you paid attention, but then... why wouldn't you?)
Further, we were sat down in front of employers as early as week 8. The job placement wasn't even really supposed to start until after graduation, but the hype was so real for Coder Foundry thanks to Natosha that we had opportunities for jobs very early.
I might sound like a fanboy, but this school helped turn my life around. I was a bartender before coming here. No coding background what-so-ever. Now I'm a software developer. It really is incredible.
