Avg Rating:4.41 ( 543 reviews )

Founded in 2012, Coding Dojo is a global technology education company that offers three full stack coding bootcamps, full-stack part-time programs, as well as courses on data science and other emerging technologies. Coding Dojo has campuses in Arlington, Berkeley, Boise, Chicago, Dallas, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Jose, Seattle, Tulsa, and online. Students can choose to learn one, two, or three of the industry’s most in-demand web development languages, including Python, Ruby on Rails, MERN, Java or .NET Core. An online option is also available for students who don’t have access to campuses. In addition to an extensive curriculum, students collaborate with peers, join interactive lectures with their instructors, work with career services, and have access to Assistant Instructors during lab sessions. Students experience building dynamic web applications, solving job-relevant problems, learning to think like true software engineers, and discovering how to become a self-sufficient developer.

To apply, candidates answer questions via an online form, schedule an interview with a Coding Dojo staff member, then if accepted, must pay a deposit to secure their place. There is no coding challenge or technical assessment, but depending on the program, students may take a placement assessment to see if they need to enroll in Programming Basics (a free ramp-up course) prior to the bootcamp.

Since 2012, Coding Dojo has endeavored to help individuals from a variety of backgrounds and skill levels transform into professional developers who go on to be hired by startups and companies like Amazon, Apple, Expedia, Microsoft, JPMorgan Chase, DocuSign and Skytap. Coding Dojo also offers career services, including one-on-one sessions with a career advisor, open forums with industry leaders, and comprehensive job preparation.

Coding Dojo welcomes Veterans and accepts the GI Bill at selected campuses, and provides various scholarship opportunities for qualified students.

    Coding Dojo was a great experience. The Instructors were easy to work with, knowledgeable and the platform contains a lot of content. Out of all the schooling I have done in the past this was the first time that I was waking up in the morning looking forward to going to class. Even though I was self taught in python and JavaScript I found that through the Coding Dojo I was filling in a lot of the gaps in my knowledge that I missed on my own. Coding Dojo also gave me a great overview of different technologies that I would not have, on my own, learned. I highly recommend to anyone looking to get into the field.

    This review could've been 5 stars review but here is my story:
     
    Ok program but after two weeks I found that the program wasn’t a good fit for me. I contacted customer service on 10/25/2020 to look into a refund. I spoke with Luke and I asked if I could get prorated amount back of 85% tuition refund. I was told they would look into it and get back to me but in the meantime to go ahead and keep taking the classes. I then received a call from Nicholas Moralez, a different representative there, who told me that Luke was wrong and that they could do the 85% for me without issue and he disconnected me from the program, I lost all access, and the financial team will process a refund for me. At this point I was very satisfied, but then today I received a email from Nicholas’s supervisor, Amanda, who then said Nicholas was wrong and that I would only get 75%. I felt this was unfair because I was already promised the 85% refund and lost access. I sent her an email about my concern and tagged Nicholas on it. He then called me and was very rude, laughing when I told him that I didn’t think this was fair. That extra 10% is a lot of money and this situation shouldn’t be laughed about. I’ve had horrible customer service before but I’ve never felt like this when getting off the phone with a representative.  He then said he would see what they could do but so far all I see them trying to keep from making their previous promise all so they can try and hang on to every little bit of money they can. To me this makes me feel like this company is only focused on what money they can make now and have no regard for the customer, or even consider any future business they would receive from me, friends, coworkers, or any positive review I may have given them, written or verbally that may have resulted in future students.  But now I don’t think I closure send anyone there if they are going to be treated like garbage if they have a concern. I will continue to comment further as the situation progresses, after I was laughed at I didn’t want him to be the one to follow up with me so I asked for a higher supervisor to contact me regarding the issue or at the very least Amanda. He didn’t seem to take my request seriously so we will see. More to come as situation progresses.

     Meaningful growth requires challenge and stress.

    The self-taught road was challenging but not as challenging and meaningful as my experience Coding Dojo Bootcamp.

    But was it worth it? Let's see.

    Spending 100k on a degree when you can get into the same field with just 10k sounded very attractive. It wasn't until right before I finished the camp, I realized the same resources/information, and people willing to hoop on zoom with you and teach are available for free or far less.

    • The inexperienced teachers ( aka previous graduates ), 
    • Unresponsive career service team,
    • Learning platform shutting down, and 
    • The lack of attention to detail with updating and managing the content we were learning from was very disappointing.

    But with all that said, it was still fun! Some of the teacher's eccentric personalities over zoom made my mornings, I loved fast pace learning along with the building projects, and I also made some good friends.

    So was it worth it?
    For me, it was not. even after the scholarship knocking the price down to 9k. 

    For 14k there's an option to get:
    1. 3-months rent
    2. Three $12 full-stack courses and on a discount day on Udemy or another course site.
    3. One $12 or free Youtube Algorithm & Data structure course
    4. Join coding communities and pay 100 for schedule time or even free sessions with the experts you meet.
    5. and many more free resources and content update and taught by a trustworthy professional working in the field direct

    But don't take my word for it. Until you experience it for yourself, how could you ever know?

    Regardless of whether or not it was worth it, I'm grateful. I enjoyed learning with all of my teachers and classmates!

    I am a recent Alum of Coding Dojo. I completed the bootcamp less than a week ago. First I would say that you get out of it what you put into it. I was apprehensive about coding bootcamps but Coding Dojo put my fears to rest. I had some experience in coding but not much. After the first week at Coding Dojo I knew that I made the right decision. The curriculum is challenging and fun. There are plenty of assignments to keep you busy  and for those that come in with more experience there is quite a bit of optional material. The instructors were phenomenal and were always up to date with current industry standards and tech. I would recommend Coding Dojo to anyone who is wanting to learn coding and is looking for a challenge.

    During this 14 week immersive bootcamp I gained a great, wholistic overview of what web development entails. The program is certainly time intensive- in addition to 2-3 hours of lectures per day the assignments and readings require more like 60 hours per week, but you truly get out of it what you put in and if you commit yourself to this program you'll find by the end you've gained a great taste of what web development is all about. Personally I came from a tech background so I was somewhat familiar with the terminology and tools; for students from non-tech backgrounds, I'd highly recommend spending a bit of time before the program getting familiar with the terminology through the prework and online tutorials. Devoting at least a week to the pre-work is essential to making sure you start out on a solid foot. Luckily the online course material is very helpful and thorough even for true beginners.

    I found the instructors and team of TAs to be very helpful and accessible despite the pivot to a fully online program. Although completing this program doesn't mean you're guaranteed a job upon graduation, you'll gain the tools and resources to grow your development skills even after the course concludes.

    They offered no job connections, even for those of us that graduated at the top of the class. The instructors were all previous dojo graduates with 0 real work experience.

    It's a dense program that takes a lot of time and effort to be committed.

    I feel I have learned a lot, but I also feel the program length is not sufficient to gain enough confidence to start a career.

    There was a good amount of support when it came to having questions addressed. Also, there was an expectation for us to do much independent research.

    I chose Coding Dojo, because the price was right. Quite a few other camps I looked into were very expensive. Coding dojo had many options on curriculum as well. The learning platform was very great and intuitive. It did have access issues at times, but it never lasted too long and there was always someone there to help. The community and instructors were great, very genuine and nice, and most of all patient. I am glad I went, and will continue to study from this platform. I do wish I would have been able to do the on campus and be fully immersed in the camp but due to the pandemic, it was not an option. As for the job portion, I felt that I could have been better. But honestly the way that it's setup is, you only get what you put in. And nothing much can be done in the short 4 months. You are already drinking from a firehose. The job search is a process, and you really have to build on your skills and become stronger as a developer. The career services are also very helpful and very knowledgeable. Just dont go in expecting a job right out of the camp. With all that said I would highly recommend anyone go here. I've read many of the reviews prior to myself enrolling and it was daunting thought for sure. But here I am writing a review! So just give it a shot and invest in yourself.

    i just graduated from coding dojo 1 week ago . 
    i learned so much in these 3 months and i cannot believe that i actually finished it. 
    this is a fantasy journey and i had wonderful time during these 3 months with all my classmate, instructors and TA. 
    a huge shout up to their instructors, i met these awesome people and they have provided very clear and detail lectures to me . 
    imagine a zero coding background people like me, now i know how to build projects. 
    i've gone through Web fundamental (HTML, CSS, Basic JS), Python, MERN, and Java. 
    thats a lot to learn and better have the right expectation that you will need to spend at least 8-16 hours a day in order to go through everything .
