    Overpriced. Not your ticket into tech.

    It was incredibly overpriced. The career service advisor I was assigned missed meetings, didn't communicate and didn't care. She asked if I had LinkedIn even though I sent her my LinkedIn before the first meeting (the only one she showed up to).

    FreeCodeCamp taught me more, and did it more effectively. I can't emphasize enough how disappointed I was with their curriculum, career services, and support in general. A TA I met with gave me false information multiple times and I eventu...

    this is a BOOTCAMP

    As an individual coming from NO computer background what-so-ever, I want to  share my experiences.

    First of all, I have a great support system at home that allowed me to focus 100% on this course for 4 months. I was able to take a recourse to prepare me for the full-time program. 

    The first month was HARD. I thought I was going to give up. The assignments are fast, and I spent all of my free time studying. It was difficult not to compare where  I stood to others in my class...

    College life was not for me.

    Bootcamps / trade schools  are a great alternative to College, especially if you are uncertain on what you want your career or life to be. Coding dojo provided me with all the resources I will need to be successful in the course. I got to work at my own pace or work ahead. They have a structure for attendance and assignments, so you wont feel like you don't know what to work on next or where to be. Each instructor has their own way of teaching, some might work for you others might not, b...

    Triple Stack for the price of One!

    To each's own, with a grain salt, If you need to see an entire application built from start to finish Dojo has a demanding curriculum that will take you there.  It took me years after college and running my own team that exposed my shortcomings of building an entire application from all directions (web/mobile).

    I am nearly 40-years-old, dropped out of college while attempting to pursue a CS degree, then opted to build a tech start-up from scratch as Founder/Investor.... all have f...

    The Dojo was instrumental

    I really enjoyed my time with Coding Dojo. It is quite astonishing how much information and programing knowledge I was able to pick up in 14 weeks. I attended the online full-time boot camp and I am incredibly happy that I did. I think this is a great idea for anyone looking to learn programming. You do need to put the effort and time in just as with any other new skill in order to really get the most of out it. I had a great cohort that I was able to connect with and learn from. The ins...

    Advise for new developers

    I was 32 years old when I decided to enroll in a coding BootCamp, so its never too late to start a new career you'll be passionate about. Coding Dojo is an intensive thorough program! Your coding journey doesn't start the first day of class. It begins the moment you are accepted. Strongly recommend that as soon as you gain access to the platform, you start doing the pre-work/algorithms. I can't stress this enough! On average, I would study 60-80 hours a week (including some all nighters ...

    A wonderful choice

    I loved my time at Coding Dojo! My instructors always were quick to communicate and created a lovely environment. The platform was well organized and user-friendly. There are many ways this school creates community, between the Dojo Hall and discord it would be hard not to make friends. Both students and TAs go above and beyond to help you gain a deeper understanding of the material or help through any problems you are struggling with. Shout Out to Zack, Adrian, Cameron, and Justina I wo...

    Best Decision

    Coding Dojo was the best thing I ever did. The way the material was presented not only by the instructors and teaching assistants; but the learning platform was well detailed and easy to follow. The staff of the bootcamp created a positive environment that made it very easy to get up in the morning and log onto the zoom meeting. All of the support was there, and I felt I was definitely set up for success.

    Great bootcamp is you're willing to put in the time & effort.

    As the title says, if you're willing to put in the time & effort, Coding Dojo is an amazing bootcamp to get you started in a Software Development career.  This probably applies to Software Development in general, but since Coding Dojo offers 3-stacks(not all 3 are required), it definitely is not something you're just going to be doing on the side, or when you have free time.  Having graduating from the 3-stack program, I can tell you that if you actually put time aside to study the m...

    Coding Dojo Review

    Pros:
    --The sheer BREADTH of tech you work with in Coding Dojo is quite exemplary: HTML, JavaScript, CSS, TypeScript, Bootstrap, Python, Flask, MySQL, MongoDB, Mongoose, Node.js, React/Express, Postman, jQuery, JSON, Ajax, Java, SpringToolSuite, SpringBoot, APIs, AWS, Azure, and there is so much more nitty-gritty I could name here for each stack. (Note: I took MERN. Some students take MEAN, which is Angular over React, or C# or other stacks, and some take or have taken Python which us...

    Fast paced bootcamp

    I had a great time in the program and felt supported by the community. The instructors are patient and willing to take time to help you learn. I went in knowing almost nothing about coding. While the program can be difficult as it is fast paced, it is extremely rewarding and you will learn a lot in  your time there.
