Codesmith

Avg Rating:4.9 ( 485 reviews )

Codesmith offers full-time (12-week) and part-time (38-week) immersive software engineering bootcamps in Los Angeles, New York City, and online. Codesmith is a selective, need-blind program focusing largely on computer science and full-stack JavaScript, with an emphasis on technologies like React, Redux, Node, build tools, Dev Ops and machine learning. This program enables Codesmith students (known as Residents) to build open-source projects, with the aim of moving into positions as skilled software engineers. Codesmith Residents become engineers, not technicians, through a deep understanding of advanced JavaScript practices, fundamental computer science concepts (such as algorithms and data structures), and object-oriented and functional programming. Codesmith helps residents develop strong problem-solving abilities and technical communication skills – valued capacities in a software engineer.

The Codesmith admissions process involves a written application with optional coding questions, a nontechnical interview, and a technical interview. Codesmith offers a number of free resources for preparing for the admissions process including in-person and online coding workshops, a 2-week online prep course (CS Prep), and an online JavaScript learning platform (CSX).

Codesmith offers an extensive hiring support program that guides Residents through whiteboarding, advanced technical interview practice, resume and profile development, and interview and networking strategies. Support continues upon graduation with bi-weekly check-ins and, after offers, negotiation support. Overall, 25% of graduates receive offers for Senior Engineer positions and above, and about 70% receive offers for Mid-level Engineer roles.

    I want to start off my review with a quick preface. If you are looking for an easy way into the world of software or web development then this most likely won't be a good fit for you. It takes a tremendous amount of work throughout. Before the program, during the program, and after the program (where some would say that this is where the real work starts). Your mileage may vary depending on your initial experience and innate affinity for coding and problem solving, but there is simply no way to avoid the effort that is required for this transformative experience. 

    I started off with absolutely zero prior experience in coding and began with first learning what a variable is and what we use them for. After a period of self-studying, I wanted to take my learning process to the next level and came across Codesmith by pure chance. What immediately stood out to me was the great sense of care that they had for their applicants and the Codesmith community. What really sealed the deal for me was going through all the free resources that Codesmith provides that I felt were a great benefit in helping to solidify my understanding of the basics. After watching some of the javascript hard parts videos led by CEO Will Sentance, previously obscure and confusing concepts started to click. I was hooked and knew that this was what I was searching for. 

    From that point forward my learning process and exposure to coding took off. Everything was geared around getting through the technical interview, which for me was quite difficult. The technical interview IS difficult, but it's not without reason. If applicants aren't able to demonstrate the level needed to enter the immersive programs then it really isn't in anyone's benefit for that applicant to be accepted as once the immersive starts, the brakes are few and far between, and the level of difficulty increases exponentially. Believe me when I say that Codesmith is not trying to trick anyone during the technical interview nor does it require any esoteric knowledge. It's simply testing if the applicant has a good understanding (not mastery) of a lot of the fundamental concepts in javascript that serve as the building blocks for what is to come in the immersive. If you are struggling with the technical interview, reach out to people in the Codesmith community. They truly do care and want to see you succeed, but the effort and dedication from your end HAS to be apparent.

    As challenging and exhausting as the full-time immersive was, it was an incredible experience that I wish I could do all over again. Never before have I been with a group of people so focused and passionately working towards a goal for such an extended period of time. The struggle and pain that we went through as we were hit with wave after wave of difficult concepts and frameworks/libraries really helped us to bond and form a close connection (they are still my friends to this day that I confide in). You really do start to get a sense of working as an engineer when going through different group projects, especially when you get to the production project phase and start mapping out your workflow with your team members. The sense of pride that you feel when you create something from scratch at the end was such a rewarding feeling as you work under a deadline with your team members. The anxiety that I felt when going through the program and not understanding everything was subsided by the constant support from the staff and fellows. 

    When you wrap up the technical side of things, you start getting into the job hunt phase where you learn how to finally work towards leveraging the skills that you've acquired towards a full-time job as an engineer. Most people would say that this part is actually harder than the technical portion as the job search process is quite volatile. There will be a lengthy trial and error process and no matter what there IS a level of luck involved as well. But those that prepare WILL be able to capitalize on the opportunity when they eventually come across it. You will be able to go through the entire application process at Codesmith, from developing your profile and resume, to how to optimize your LinkedIn profile,  to how to write cover letters and sell yourself as a credible engineer. Codesmith also has advisors like Eric K, who have been in the industry and are a tremendous benefit to helping you navigate scenarios that you will encounter like negotiating your salary and benefits, discussing your narrative and background, and how to portray yourself as a competent engineer so that when you do come across these situations you are able to recall to the experience provided to you!

    To wrap up....
    I have been on both sides at Codesmith.  As someone that went through the full-time program, and as someone that works for Codesmith. I can truly say that there is no subterfuge, Codesmith genuinely cares about this process and helping people to achieve their goals and to fulfill their motivations for going through this rigorous program, whatever they may be. The effort required is tremendous but all in all, I can say without hesitation that it's worth it. The community that Codesmith has developed here is second to none, and it's why I wanted to work for Codesmith. I wanted to be able to give back to other applicants going through this process just like how when I was applying to Codesmith there were so many people that reached out and helped me to get through everything. Life as an engineer/developer is one of continuous learning and improvement, and if that's what you're looking for I truly believe that Codesmith is a great way to get started. The outcomes and salaries may seem very enticing, and rightly so. But more than that, it's this valuable skill that you are acquiring that will be in demand and dominate our society for years and years to come.

    My Codesmith story pretty different from most, but it has the same happy ending.

    I come from a more technical background than a lot of people who come to Codesmith. I studied mathematics in college, taught math and science professionally, and was already comfortable with the basics of coding. To top it all off, I wasn't even very interested in web development, I wanted to work in Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence and was looking for a way to enter into that field.

    Something about the culture, philosophy, and pedagogy of Codesmith drew me in, and I joined. It was an excellent decision.

    During the program, I found ways to take what we were working on and make it interesting to me. I spent more time focusing on databases and algorithms, and focused my projects around things that related (however tangentially!) to Machine Learning.

    Right after I graduated, the pandemic hit, and Codesmith hired me on to help deliver some of the lessons remotely and to help maintain their website. The managers at Codesmith knew my interests, and were kind enough to let me spend a significant amount of time developing their Machine Learning curriculum.

    After I left at the end of 2020, I was able to build a web app that leveraged computer vision that I could show off to companies and demonstrate my interest in Machine Learning.

    After a few months of job searching, I was able to find a perfect position for me – a software role developing tools for a machine learning team at a startup using computer vision to help diagnose cancerous biopsies.

    To be clear, I'm not saying Codesmith will turn you into a Machine Learning engineer. What I got from Codesmith wasn't some specific set of skills or special knowledge. Instead, Codesmith provided me exactly what I was missing: the ability to spearhead a publishable project from ideation to deployment; experience working with a team of engineers on a project for extended periods of time; familiarity with the tools that professionals use; war-stories to tell of uncovering and overcoming daunting technical challenges. In short, Codesmith developed my engineering maturity.

    If you too lack engineering maturity, and have the determination to work through the long hours and challenging curriculum, then I can't recommend Codesmith enough. I don't know what you are trying to achieve, but if you are creative and hard-working, you can leverage the catalyzing environment of Codesmith to make it happen.

    What's brilliant about Codesmith is they don't just teach you languages and frameworks. About a third of the program is dedicated to actually building an open source developer tool that other engineers can actually use that will impress potential employers. This is a step beyond where most programs leave you and is critical to their graduates' success -- it gives you a huge leg up and something fascinating and deep to talk about in an interview.

    I came in from a completely different background and only learned what JavaScript was half a year prior. I was no doubt intimidated by the rigorous curriculum, watching engineers only weeks ahead in the program write applications I never believed I could in that period of time. Soon enough, I was at the same level. 

    I faced challenges when it came to applying for jobs. That part of the process can be rough and is a psychological battle as much as it is a test of strategy and skill. Codesmith walks you through in very practical terms how to apply, and their strategy is great. But ultimately, graduates will come up with their own strategies and use Codesmith's as a springboard. In the end, what got me through was that Codesmith instilled a belief in me that I could do it, and that conviction, while sometimes quite small, carried me through. I eventually received an offer to the same generous tune of their average graduate outcomes, which I did not believe could happen.

    You absolutely have to put in the work; applying to jobs will come easier to some than others. Know that you're embarking on a challenge. But as far as there being a better program out there for launching you into a Software Engineering career, I'll believe it when I see it.

    I participated in CSPrep, the two week part-time pre-bootcamp prep program, and am eagerly preparing for the bootcamp itself.  Codesmith is incredible for a few reasons.  First their approach which involves building a complete, rock-solid foundation including understanding what is going on under the hood with the javascript engine using diagramming of the callstack, thread of execution, execution context, and memory, and precise technical language is great.  Second, instruction is interactive and socratic and I can attest, as a current teacher, that the instructors know all of the good teacher moves.  Finally the culture of everyone struggling through hard learning and not looking up code, pair programming and answering each other's questions and being kind and generous and supportive made me feel at home and overcome imposter syndrome.  Codesmith is a community it is hard NOT to want to be a part of.  This is a mission driven organization that has genuine educational motives at the forefront.  I <3 Codesmith!

    Codesmith is an environment where knowledge is built upon hard work, indeed, but most importantly, kindness. In all my time there I never received but words of encouragement, inspiration, and guidance. Every instructor and volunteer seem fully committed to you understanding  why  code works the way it does, not simply gimmicks or fancy tricks.
    The curriculum is filtered  through best practices, truly modern approach, and updated technical background, so you hit the ground running on your way to land that first job. Most importantly,  you learn to incorporate new developments on JavaScript into your toolbox, to remain on the cutting edge of both the industry and the top echelon of professionals.
    My appreciation of the profession and its growth greatly improved upward by the long hours invested in  the course, but the results speak for themselves, the accompaniment I've received inspires me to work harder everyday to accomplish my life goals and make my instructors proud.
    Truly, I can not recommend every course offered by Codesmith enough, there is where your hard work produces generous fruit.

    The best investment I ever made, the people in my cohort alone are worth the money spent. Now imagine that, coupled with the intense immersive curriculum and the power house instructors, AND the leader of CS - Will S is an actual human being that's so down to earth, real, extremely helpful, and actually cares. 

    This is a no brainer, it's the real deal, I landed a role shortly after graduating and I got more than what I was asking for. When does that ever happen in life?! 

    If you have the funds or can get the funds, stop thinking, CodeSmith is the answer.

    Pros:
    - Great Curriculum: CS Prep teaches you the Hard Parts of Javascript and prepares you for the technical interview of the Codesmith Immersive. It provides a great starting point for students to understand the field of software engineering, as you pick up tidbits of wisdom while progressing through the course. Their supporting materials were also organized and helpful. 
    - Community: My cohort had an amazing community. Many of the students would constantly talk and joke through the Slack channel and Zoom chat. There were minimal difficult personalities, and the vibes were generally good.
    - Accessible Instructors:  All the staff at Codesmith are very responsive and supportive. I really appreciate how easy it is to communicate with the employees and find help on whatever problem you have.

    Cons:
    - Expensive: CS Prep lasts about two weeks, but there is only class four days a week (three hours on weekdays, six hours on Saturday). In my opinion, $875 is expensive for the amount of time spent learning, but the price does roll over if you get into the immersive. To me, CS Prep is not worth the money unless you are for sure planning on joining the Codesmith Immersive.

    I, like many others who attended Codesmith, was hooked the first time I attended JS: the hard parts. The approach to learning CS was the exact opposite of the dusty, archaic book-learning of computer concepts I experienced in college. It was not long before I signed up for the immersive program. I won't mince words: this program is spectacular. Attending the CS immersive was a highly formative process in which I learned how to learn. Codesmith is not a program where you can turn your brain off, hop on the conveyor belt, and expect an offer from IBM at the end of the process. It will challenge you. Your brain will contort in ways you hadn't thought possible. But in the end, if you've given it the diligence required, you'll come out with the mind of a highly capable software engineer.

    Of course nothing can be perfect-- there are some issues that might be present in any (albeit quite successful) startup, and it must be said that this is likely not the best path for everyone. But I can say without a doubt this was the right choice for me, and I had no qualms in recommending the program to a friend who starts next month.

    Codesmith's immersive program was an unforgettable experience.  Not being given the answers to everything is quite uncomfortable, and can be quite overwhelming at times, but couldn't think of a better group of people to go through it with.  The level of commitment and empathy shown by everyone from the instructors, to the residents, and hiring support made it all the more worthwhile.  
        
    The CIRR data speaks for itself, it's just whether or not you choose to believe it.  I'll admit that I was pretty skeptical the first time I saw the reviews.  Having gone through it all and meeting these wonderful people, I'm proud to be one of the testimonies that feels lucky to be a part of it.

    I enrolled in CS Prep with the intention of preparing for one of the immersives at Codesmith later this year. I wasn't sure what to expect going in but it was a great experience overall. The whole class (~30 people) was super supportive and encouraging of everyone. Our instructor, Sophie, was really knowledgable and seemed really invested in helping students and making sure they succeeded in the curriculum. I will add that going in I was surprised by how much pairing there was (every day), but I found it a valuable experience and the final project was a blast. I definitely plan to try to get into one of Codesmith's immersives after this positive experience.

    I attended Codesmith after graduating from another bootcamp bc I didn't feel prepared to find a job at the level I wanted. As w/any endeavor, it's up to you how much you want to invest in your future, in time, energy, commitment, and community. Codesmith provided everything I could have asked for, and so much more. They don't just help you, they support you, for a lifetime. I found a great job after graduating, as did all of my classmates. Even more, having graduated 2 years ago, I recently needed help through a difficult time in my life. I knew I could turn to Codesmith for support, and of course, they were there. The people at Codesmith, the community they foster, and the spirit they engender, are radically empowering, perpetually nurturing, and practically innovative. A wonderful life changing experience!
