    Codify Academy

    My experience was overall good. I really had to fight to get hired in the bay area especially since I had no previous experience. I know Codify is fairly new and there are some issues that should be addressed like, an equal amount of great instructors(They have a few awesome teachers) and more help with job placement. I choose Codify because it is one of the less-expensive coding schools in the bay area and true you can learn on your own for f...

    Waste of money

    Codify provides students with in insufficient material to completely prepare students for a full time developer role. The curriculum never touches on data structures or any algorithms which many junior developer roles require knowledge of and test during technical interviews. The weekly projects given are also too simple and aren't great projects to add to an online portfolio to impress recruiters. Many of the mentors/TA's there have little to no experience as a full time developer. ...

    Codify Academy review

    In a nutshell: great front-end bootcamp if you have personal responsibility and commit to doing the work and studying & learning from the coursework.

    This is a part-time course (1 day a week for 3hrs in class, the rest at home), teaching you the fundamentals of front-end web development, including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Bootstrap, Vue.js and more. You will come away armed with the experience, tools and knowledge to build functional, responsive modern websites and a complete por...

    A Real Review

    Background: Before joining the bootcamp, I had experience in creating basic websites with HTML and CSS. I took this course hoping that I would learn JavaScript as I failed to understand it via self-study.

    Codify Academy (CA) is a 16-week part time coding bootcamp. They focus on teaching front-end development (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) and is a cheaper option among the many coding bootcamps available. CA's classes are part hands on and mostly self learning. Basically, how much wo...

    Front End Developer

    I saw Codify Academy's ad on Facebook and I called the number then scheduled an appointment. I interviewed with Matt and was touched by how down to Earth he is. I felt from the moment I spoke with Matt that these guys were genuinely out to help people step into a new world of coding. 

    When I signed up and started Codify I thought I was just going to get some Mentors that just teaches me how to code but I was wrong. Codify offered me a lot more then just that, ...

    I'm a developer!

    Codify Academy is an amazing coding bootcamp. You will learn a lot about Front End development and how to get from point A to point B in just a few months.

    Their Front End program is really straight forward, simple, easy to learn, and great mentors.

    I definitely recommend codify academy for anyone who wants to get into the coding industry. You will learn a lot and be able to absorb different type of languages.

    When I first started out I was really rusty with h...

    Amazing experience, worth every penny!

    My dive into development was tough to say the least. Like a lot of beginners I struggled with self teaching and was deterred by my lack of a computer science degree. Words couldn't describe my relief at finding Codify Academy, they offered the structure and discipline I was missing and put me on track to becoming the developer/designer I am today. Like many other San Franciscans I lacked the resources and ability to enroll myself in a FT bootcamp in the city. I knew beyond a shadow o...

    Student

    I absolutely loved my journey with Codify and it helped me reach my goal. I started Codify as a Student and loved it so much that I decided to become a Student Mentor after my course ended. 
    We got a lot of cool projects to work on , which helped me gain hands on experience and I could showcase all these awesome projects in my portfolio. The classes are very interactive and a lot of fun! Just within a week after my course ended, I had three offer letters. They gave me proper guidance ...

    Great course, great mentors!

    I’ve entered the program without any coding background. I've always been interested in this but, I had no idea where to start. One day my friend told me: “You should try Front-End, it’s in demand and it’s fun and interesting”.  I saw Codify ad on Facebook and called them right away. 16 exciting weeks of learning - and I graduated! I’ve learned basic skills that are essential in becoming a web developer. They teach you how to learn on your own, because coding is a none-st...

    Great Start to Web Development for Beginners

    Codify Academy is a great place to start learning web development with no prior knowledge or experience. Before enrolling as a student I had some programming experience through college and a little knowledge of JavaScript but wasn't sure how to apply any of these skills. Codify helped with putting my foot in the door and introducing me to tools that I could learn plus add to my skillset. The first day jumpstarts you right into building your first web page and the classes thereafter guide y...

    It was Awesome!

    I just finished this course and the experience has been fantastic. Before I joined Codify I researched different bootcamps and I needed a school that was flexible to my work schedule and Codify delivered. I was offered all the tools needed to succeed. Everything we need is made available to us and me having absolutely no prior coding experience before, to now I feel a whole lot more confident of my abilities and have a plethora of projects finished and my portfolio that is looking v...
