    Unfortunately I don't recommend program to anyone. I had high hopes going in but finished disappointed. Curriculum and class time very disorganized. Most of the time they asked you to figure it out on your own. They don't know how to teach and the assignments don't build on each other. You leave class with a weak foundation and a bare bones portfolio. I've learned more from videos on the internet than at Codeup. Also they pay students for reviews. So watch out. They are closer to a technology frat than an educational institution, since they are better at networking and parties than teaching. All the instructors and staff are wonderful people so no hard feelings. I just think skeptical people should know the truth.  It was the only bootcamp in town up until this year so take a look at the other options.

    Codeup is definitely worth the time and money. The staff really cares about its students, and are always looking to help.

    It is a great place to network because Codeup and Geekdom are the centers of gravitation for the San Antonio tech scene.

    If you want to learn about Coding, and Tech, Codeup is where to begin.

    Covered HTML, CSS in the first few classes and spent a majority of time learning Javascript. APIs, PhP and builders like WordPress were touched on. Overall the instructors were very helpful along with the staff. The class was fairly small making it easier to get your questions answered and have a bit of one on one time. They did their best to make the dullest of topics fun and interesting. It was well worth the cost for anyone trying to break into coding services.

    I went there after being unhappy and unfulfilled in my current situation. I went there during their Oct 2014 course. It was a great decision. A strong curriculum is provided, ample of time to study and stay after class to concentrate on your work or just do additional studying. It can seem a bit like being in college studying hard with a side of socializing. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a career change or just want to seriously learn the skills for web development

    I spent a few years as a computer science major, and I have to say that I learned more practical skills in Codeup than I did in school. 

    The instuctors are very thorough and helpful, and legitimately love their job. And best of all, within days of completion, I was getting interviews.

    If you are planning on doing Codeup, and have some coding experience, you might find some of the earlier sections slow. However, the instructors will be more than happy to point you to extra exercises.

    10/10, would definitely do again.

    I have been told by several Computer Science majors that I learned more in 16 weeks than they did in 2 years of university course work!

    I chose Codeup out of all the bootcamps in the country because they felt like an actual school - not a for-profit business - who honestly cared about my education and ability to effectively enter the programming career field. The instructors are incredibly dedicated to their students and are constantly improving the curriculum to cater to their students' and the markets' needs. And everyone involved in the program has such strong connections in the tech community that finding potential employers was incredibly easy; I had 2 job offers within a week of graduating, simply because they knew the program and respected and trusted those involved!

    I was very hesitant to change careers at first, but this has been a life-changing experience and I have absolutely no regrets. This was 100% the right decision.

    I will describe Codeup as an awesome experience. The instructors are brilliant, and the flow of the program was really great. There are also great social events in and around the school you can attend.
    I would highly recommend the program if you are serious about learning and have the discipline to stick through it. For anyone thinking of changing careers, it is one of the best decisions I have ever made.

    After years working as a business analyst for a software company, going back and learning the skills to go from 'Hey this is what we should make' to 'Hey this is a good idea lets start putting it together' is one of the most empowering things I've ever had the opportunity to do.   The work is not easy, but neither is the profession if you want to do it well.   I've been working as a full time developer for well over a year now and don't regret the decision.  Codeup had phenomenal instructors, a concentrated curriculum, and an intense program to help separate the wheat from the chaff.  I would do it all over again with little hesitation.

    Graduated from Codeup a bit over a year ago, I had little experience in Web Development and wouldn's have dared applying for a job in the industry. During the course we learned a lot about writing code, but most importantly, Codeup taught us how to learn on our own. To this day I still check my notes from class. The course itself was challenging and covered a whole lot. 

    Everyone at Codeup has been extremely helpful, the instructors were always open and insightful, not just dropping the answer but helping me find it myself. Codeup has become a community that I'm happy to belong to. They have made it clear that they are still there for me, in case I need help with some code or if I want to explore other job opportunities.  That means a lot to me! 

    I have nothing but good memories from Codeup. Recommended 100%.

    I was on the fence about attending a bootcamp and I couldn't be happier with choosing Codeup. Codeup was a fantastic experience. They do a great job of keeping the classes small and filled with smart people with very diverse backgrounds. 

     
    The staff is amazing and does a great job of creating a positive atmosphere. Teachers and T.A.'s were always available and very knowledgable.  They don't just teach you how to code here. They really lay out the groundwork on how to network, and be part of your local developers community. The lunchtime speakers and Meetups after class were always fun to take advantage of. I met a lot of great people and made as many friends.
     
    You will be pushed to learn a lot in a short amount of time. You have to be willing to put in the work to get anything out of this course!

    Codeup was an excellent experience.  The work is intense, but very rewarding and does a marvelous job preparing you to become a web developer.  I have a friend who is a 10-year software developer, and after looking at my portfolio, he told me that I am on the same level he was as a programmer after two years of self-teaching.
