Avg Rating:4.43 ( 524 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.

    What a rewarding and incredible journey it has been to earn black belts in Python, MEAN and Java at Coding Dojo! Coding Dojo is a unique coding bootcamp that teaches three full technology stacks in a single 14-week program.

    From the admissions advisors, to my instructors and also the teaching assistants who were available whenever we needed them, to my cohorts and the career specialists that have been incredibly supportive. I am a self-sufficient software developer with hands-on programming experience though the in-depth three-stack curriculum, our industry-tested learning platform, hands-on assignments, career support and much more. I feel ready and fully prepared to transition into a new phase of IT. I have the skill set to learn new languages quickly and I can create entire websites from front to back.

    Oh! and I have never been as proud of ME as I am right now...I did it! Thank you Coding Dojo!

    Took the Online Part-Time Bootcamp and had the best learning experience. I found the materials very helpful and comprehensive, everything was explained in such great detail. What makes the course of a higher quality are the assignments you have which strongly help you in learning by doing. There are the required assignments which when completed give you a solid understanding of the concepts, but if you want to dig even deeper you take the numerous optional ones. Don’t panic if you get stuck. TA-s are ready to help, weekdays or weekends you can always count on someone to help with your code. The instructors are also very friendly, positive and ready to help, but most importantly they are very good at explaining the material in the lectures. This course is designed in a way that makes the learning fun, I personally spent hours of studying without feeling tired, all I felt was the joy of learning new things. But the feeling of coming up with a real project at the end of such short time and showing it to your loved ones is indescribable. Coding Dojo also teaches you team working discipline which I think is a key concept of being successful at a job or in life. If you want an organized bootcamp in which you want to start coding or level up at it, Coding Dojo is the right place to go!

    I went from knowing nothing about coding to being able to design websites. The amount I learned in three months has helped me become a self sufficient developer who can teach himself new skills and learn as I work on new projects. Its not a silver bullet you won't go there and become an expert but as long as you put in the time during and after(can't emphasize after enough) the bootcamp you will get the opportunity to change careers. And career services really helped me market myself, building a resume, linked in profile and provide advice on companies.

    I had a great experience at the bootcamp! Before deciding to come here i was looking at a few other bootcamps in the bay area, mostly in Berkeley and San Francisco. From speaking with my friends in the field, they said the bootcamps in SF and Berkeley had actual connections with companies and would help you get placed into the programs if you fit the qualifications. Job Assistance was something that was important to me. However, when i spoke to admissions coordinator at Coding Dojo, she said that there would be some assistance in the way of how to interview, resume building, and how to job seek. This made me a little discouraged about Coding Dojo. However, ultimately I decided on Coding Dojo based on proximity to my home in San Jose and because it was FULL STACK. To my knowledge, Coding Dojo is the only full stack bootcamp in the bay area. This was key for me because I wasn't sure which side of software I wanted to be on (front vs backend), so I figured I'd go full stack to figure it out. The curriculum seems current based on the research I've done on current coding languages/technologies. The instructors are great. Each stack has an instructor that "specializes" in that stack. The instructors are well educated, seeming to know a little bit about everything on top of their specialties. They are attentive and helpful and guide you in the right direction if they feel like you need more information or education on a certain topic. Another great key aspect of the coding dojo is their focus on algorithms. Algorithms is key to get a job so at the dojo, we get practice every morning, sometimes twice if you ask for algo in the afternoon. This practice gives you practice talking out loud, problem solving and presenting your solution.  

    Towards the end of my first stack, a new career advisor was hired and straight away it seemed like more was being offered to job assistance. He's brought in recruiters and posted job fair and internship type opportunities pretty often. I would say at the start of the bootcamp, i would've given a 2 star review for job assistance, but now with the new career advisor, its a 4 star review for job assistance. I've recently been graduated for about a week and have had a lot of assistance from the career advisor. In about a months time, i could see the job assistance going up to 5 stars.
