Avg Rating:4.43 ( 529 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.

    As the title would imply, this review is based on my boot camp experience. The bootcamp curriculum is intense and extensive. Your cohortmates are your team and if you try to deal with the struggle alone, you will fail or give yourself a head of grey with no sleep. It is also a crystal clear example of "you get out what you put in."  I had a great cohort and will look back on my bootcamp experience fondly. The work was hard but I worked harder and I succeeded. Plus there is free coffee and other snacks.

    I am an IT professional who wanted to pivot my career a bit my getting a better foundation in programming.  After researching various schools, I felt that Coding Dojo would be the best match and I think I was right.  I had tried to learn some programming, such as Python, on my own and always struggled to get past the initial steps.  Being in a classroom environment really helped me and I feel confident with the foundation I now have.

    All of my instructors were great and all willing to meet and discuss any area I was having a problem with.  I also know as an alumni I can swing by and pick their brains on any personal projects I have questions on.

    I thought the curriculum was very good.  Yes, some of it was a little outdated, but this was often called out to us.  The parts that were outdated usually had to do with some installation instructions where the original source had been changed.  I know they try to keep up with this and if you mention it the instructors will help.  Also, if you find something out of date PLEASE report it.  There are ways right on the curriculum page to do that very easily.

    As far as job assistance, this is an area that I think the student must take the lead on.  In my Dojo in LA the job assistance person is great and available.  However, I noticed a HUGE number of people did not schedule one-on-ones with her, which was a mistake on their part.  I have had multiple one-on-ones with her and I know her guidance has helped with improving my resume, cover letters and LinkedIn Profile.  No, getting a job is NOT automatic if you pass the course, there are multiple factors, and everyone's experience is going to be difference.  If you need guidance, CALL THEM.  They'll do what they can.  The rest HAS to be up to you.

    The best part of the course was my classmates.  I am still close to them and they made it fun.  They also helped me a lot.  It is a TON of work and I might have dropped without them.

    If you do this, put the hours in and grind.  It is easy to fall behind, but if you want it, put your head down and work.  And follow their 20 minute rule.  Struggle for 20 minutes on a problem, if you can't crack it, ask for help.  Do NOT fall behind over pride that you think you should figure out something yourself.  The course is too much information too fast, you have to keep it going.

    I would definitely recommend this course.  It's expensive, it's hard, there is NO guarantee of a job when you're done.  But for me it was worth it and I am glad I have the skills and foundation in full stack that I now have.

    Overall, I liked my experience with Coding Dojo. There are pros and cons to it, but a good place to start in the IT industry if you are a beginner.

    Career Services: At the time of when I signed up, I was promised career services but we did not have a designated career service person to work with until one of my cohort mates was accepted for that position the week of graduation. I think going on Indeed and LinkedIn everyday and searching for jobs is more beneficial, but it depends on if you need help on your resume or job profiles. 

    Coursework: The is tons of good information on the platform but I think some of it needs to be updated and in the beginning there are videos, but as you get into the full stacks there aren't so much which isn't helpful. Usually, there is 1 lecture a day, but sometimes you can have two depending on how fast you need to get through the material. Don't expect to complete every assignment because some of them can take a longggg time depending on your skill set. If you are a true beginner like me, you're more at a disadvantage because it is a lot of new information to take in, however I think this is a good place to start your IT career. It's fun completing a full stack project, but unfortunately due to the schedule and pace of the course you can't get in the nitty gritty of everything. Also, some of the assignments are individual and others you can do as a group which is always fun! I think there should definitely be more videos as a reference and an example of how to build something than just reading material. 

    Instructors: All of my instructors were friendly and easy to get along with. They were very helpful if you were stuck on a project and willing to stay later to help students. However, with my cohort they were short-staffed and my instructor had to take on two cohorts and split his time between groups which was difficult if you were stuck. Also, the instructors have lots of meetings which could take a 2 hour chunk of their time away from helping students. But overall, they gave the attention and help I needed to make it through and they are all very knowledgeable of the material. They present it in an easy way and record the lectures to refer back to or to build along with them.

    i really did enjoy this bootcamp and learned more than i ever thought possible. If you put in the hours like they say and work long days and devote all your time to this you will be successful. I would highly recommend this bootcamp for someone with little to no experience who wants to break into the tech world. The entire time we had ta's available to us to help us with anything which was amazing to have and they really make a huge difference. They do not always have them so if you are going to sign up i would make sure that there are ta's otherwise maybe rethink it or wait until they do. the instructors are great but when theres 30-40 people and only 3 instructors who are not always going to be sitting waiting for you at their desk it can be a lot harder. so just make sure they have the ta's because they helped out so much and make things go a lot better. 

    Also i would suggest that they update their platform on java. every other stack was great and i have zero complaints and really enjoyed it but their java stack they have needs a little work and i would talk to people currently in school and see what they say about it and if it has been updated before signing up or making any commitments to it because thats one thing that was a bit frustrating. besides that everything else was great and if those two things were fixed i would recomment this course to every person i know or met who is looking for a bootcamp to attend.

    Some Alumni don't even have a job after 9 months graduation. The only good thing is the time with my cohort. No job guarantee. You're on your own after 14 weeks. Not even a call from career service. They just want your money. Stay away from it. It's a scam.

    I decided to join Coding Dojo's onsite program at the Orange County location wanting to learn how to program. I feel that after going through the program, I was able to get solid foundation to learn more languages and frameworks after leaving Coding Dojo. At the Orange County location I learned three full-stacks: Python, C#/.Net, and MEAN. I feel that the onsite program was a better fit for my learning style. The Orange County locations instructors and teacher assistants are passionate at what they teach and go above and beyond the curriculum teaching us best practices at programming on the job. I feel that atmosphere is a great place for learning because everyone there has the same attitudes and goals and they are willing to help eachother out solving problems. I would recommend anyone to join the Coding Dojo especiially if they are willing to put the work and show up. Everyone can improve going through this program.

    Coding Dojo has been a great learning experience for me. I just graduate in Coding Dojo today and I am so glad that I meet a lot of people with same passion in learning. When I come here, I only have a little experience, but thanks to the instructors and cohost that I can complete the course and graduate. They teach so much in a short amount of time for three full stacks and make sure you really committed into learning and understanding the material. I really surprised how much I learned from this boot camps. This is better than any college in just 3 months, I learn how to seriously work on project, how to focus on the thing that we need to learn, learn to work with my cohost for group project.

    Thank you Coding Dojo!

    By far the most valuable thing that I got out of this bootcamp was removing my own personal doubts about my ability to transition into this field. 

     

    [My background]

    I had a little bit of coding experience before coming to Coding Dojo. I minored in CS in University and I took a few courses (both in person and online) over the years. Before the bootcamp I also tried applying to a few software related jobs but of course heard nothing back or was rejected. Due to my lack of CS major and lack of any real experience besides a few university/online classes, I've never had confidence in my ability to get into the software industry.

     

    [Review]

    Part1:

    Coding Dojo REALLY changed everything. As I was going through the program, I gained more confidence and of course, more practical skills. At the time, I could not see my progress but looking back, it was remarkable how much stuff the program taught and how much stuff I managed to learn in such a short amount of time.

     

    Part2: Time commitment

    I truly dedicated all my time for 14 weeks to this bootcamp. Through the first 2 stacks of the program( 8 weeks), I was spending up to 16 hours per day at the bootcamp (from 7AM to 11PM),  from Monday to Friday. I also went to the bootcamp on Saturday for about 5 hours and studied at home on Sunday for another 5 hours. In total, I spent around 80-90 hours per week dedicated to learning programming. During my last stack(the last 4 weeks), I dialed back the hours I dedicated to learning programming and focused a little bit more on the job hunt process, which mainly consisted of practicing algorithms and working on my online presence and reviewing past stacks.

     

    Part3: My approach/mentality while attending the bootcamp

    Your success at this bootcamp and in your job hunt depends on how much work you put in. My mindset throughout the bootcamp was that I was going to no-life the 14 weeks and completely dedicate my life to this program. I told myself, if I don't get a job after this experience, it won't be because lack of effort on my part and that I  would not quit or give up half way like my previous attempts at landing a job in this industry.

     

    Part4: The bootcamp environment

    The environment at Coding Dojo was a tremendous help for keeping my mindset and not burning out. Almost everyone was focused on not only learning, but also helping each other. I loved every second of it. I highly recommend the on site program because there's so many resources you can take advantage of, especially the other students. The instructors were very knowledgeable as well and offered some great advice for my job search. After graduation, I went back every single day for about 10-12 hours per day until I landed my first job about 1 month after graduating. Talking with other alumni and being in such a focused environment allowed me to much more productive than trying to do the job hunt from home.

     

    Part 5: Career Services

    As for career services, overall they are very helpful. I got a job 1 month out of the bootcamp because career services connected me with my current employer. They also helped me polish my resume and LinkedIn. Without their help, I would not have a job right now. I'm very grateful for their help.

     

    [Final thoughts]

    I think you should not choose a bootcamp based on what technologies they teach because I think every reputable bootcamp will teach relevant technologies. What sets this bootcamp apart from others is they teach you how to learn. They give you the confidence that if you ever meet an unfamiliar technology, you know you can learn it in a short amount of time.

    Before enrolling in coding dojo, I was unemployed having just left a sales job. I’ve always wanted to learn how to create apps and websites because I believed I had a lot of ideas but had no way of turning them into something real. That’s when a friend of mine advised me to investigate coding bootcamps so I could learn coding in a concentrated curriculum so I could land a better job than what I was doing before, and I could also learn how to create apps. That’s when I came across coding dojo and having gone through the program I am able to say that I now know that I have the tools to create what I put my mind to and that if I have any trouble with anything, the instructors here are always up to helping you work out anything that you may be having trouble with your code. If you’re looking for something to change your career/life I’d highly recommend learning how to code and Coding Dojo is amongst the best at teaching you how to do that.
