    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.

  • Great Class!

    I really enjoyed the environment and the intense pace. The teachers were all great and dependable. We covered many topics in a short period, but I never really felt too rushed.

    I came to Codeup knowing absolutely zero code, and left so excited to continue learning. They not only teach you the fundamentals of coding, but connect you with people who want to hire you. I found a job a week after leaving Codeup to work for an awesome startup. Codeup has an awesome staff that is fully behind you and your success. They have successfully created an awesome learning atmosphere that creates a great network going into the coding world.

    I graduated from Codeup in 2020. The curriculum is great and the instructors were super helpful, but do not put too much faith into the placement team. Within the six months after graduation, I never received an “in-field” job offer and they’ll push your cohort to the side once a new class has graduated. Even though I attended every monthly meeting, met the number of weekly GitHub commits and weekly job applications, I was passed up on better opportunities that were given to students who didn't push a single line of code since their Capstone.

    Dimitri Antoniou and the Codeup Placement Team falsely stated that I received an “in-field” job offer through the Codeup Apprentice Program. The program is a 3 month contract with an employee partner and if they feel that you’re a fit, they might extend an offer for a permanent role. It is not guaranteed that the company will extend an offer. I did not receive a verbal or written offer, instead I was sent an auto email from Gusto- a payroll service, and was pressured by Codeup to provide my banking information. I did not feel comfortable giving this information before receiving an offer because I wanted to review the offer before accepting. Due to their constant pressure, I withdrew my application. 

    Do not count on getting 100% of your tuition refunded if you end up without a job. I was only refunded 25% back and that was based on their false claims of receiving an offer. During my exit interview with the Placement Team, they were belligerent and condescending. If you get any sort of offer and decline it or you withdraw your applications from an unfit employer, Codeup will claim you do not get a refund because you were unwilling to work with the Placement Team.

    Whether you found the job on your own, used a local grant partner or if you took a job that isn't related to the Web Development field- the Codeup Placement Team will try to take credit to meet their quota of hired students.

    Very political, like stupid political. Uses students who love code and learning takes there suggestions without giving correct feedback. Also will try the hardest to get money, if you check any of the offered scholarships from they school itself it never goes to the student. It ONLY goes to codeup. So you dont see any scholarship money really hit student hands. The grants and twf will cover the most of it. And just know they open doors and teach you the basics at bare minimum. Why review anonymously? Because the staff can't handle any negative feedback and are vindictive as high school students.
