    I graduated from the online part-time program just last week! I got to learn the Python/ Django stack which only in 4 months I feel so competent at it. Though, of course there are always new things to learn and always room for improvement. I think that without the bootcamp I would not be able to learn all these things in such speed. I highly recommend it, though you need to know that it is quite intensive and it will require a lot of effort from the student (as it is always in any kind of learning environment). The curriculum is very well structured and in the online program I could follow the lectures at my own time, which I consider a very positive point.

    I just graduated online bootcamp at Coding Dojo. It is very intense and challenging program. I started with zero knowledge in programming and in 16 weeks I can build a website as a full stack developer. I’m very impressed with this program. If you are ready to put time and effort every day and complete all assignments, you going to have amazing results. I would definitely recommend Coding Dojo.

    Coding Dojo truly takes you from knowing nothing to being able to build a web application utilizing both front and back end languages. They teach you crucial aspects like OOP and database usage WITHOUT giving you all of the answers. This was frustrating for some students but I think this helped us become better developers. It forced students to utilize research and outside sources to figure out problems. This is truly what it is like in the industry, therefore it makes you a better dev. 

    That being said, there were some hiccups as they transitioned to fully online (started at the beginning of Covid-19) but they did give additional resources and retakes to courses to accommodate the issues. I would have preferred 2 languages (more in depth) than grazing over the 3. (Feels like grazing but you do gain ALOT of knowledge) But either way, I do feel confident in multiple languages.

    I really feel like coding went from a bunch of crap letters and symbols to a breeze. I feel like I can learn anything when it comes to coding now. The instructors and staff are very caring. They work long after hours to help you. Your cohort mates are generally very friendly and ready to help too. It really teaches you how to learn how to code not just to learn how to code if that makes sense.

    I had my eye on the Coding Dojo for several years before making the leap to enter the program. It is a huge commitment to dedicate 14 solid weeks of your time and resources to learning 3 full stacks. But if you've ever seen Coding Dojo testimonial videos pop up on your YouTube feed from alumni talking about how awesome the program is, then you've seen and heard the truth! Without question, entering this program was the best decision I have ever made for my career. The Coding Dojo creates an intensive, immersive learning environment with an unparalleled curriculum and pedagogy. In my opinion, there is no better way to learn. The platform is built to stretch you but not crush you, and the classroom (even virtually) is interactive with ready access to your instructors. There are plenty of bootcamps, videos, and learning modules available out there, but if you're truly serious about making a career change, I highly recommend the Coding Dojo. I believe it will save you time, money, and actually get you where you want to go.

    I attended from April 2020 to August 2020 and had a good experience! The instructors are very knowledgeable and are very willing to help you whenever you need. They make things fun! It's very fast paced and a lot of hard work but it's worth it. You definitely get what you put into it, so if you don't show up or do all the readings and assignments you may not do as well as you'd like. Only complaint was having a guidance counselor for getting into the process claim to be there for me, but blocked me and ghosted me the second I got my loan figured out. Other than that, the instructors are amazing.

    As a recent graduate of the Coding Dojo i highly recommend it for anyone interested in learning the basics of web development or wanting to switch career paths into the tech field of computer programming. They teach 3 full stacks which will vary depending on your local and what languages companies are using in your area. I did the 14 week online course due to the imprecations of the current pandemic, while it seemed daunting at first i settled into a nice routine after the first couple of weeks. The teachers and teacher assistant's are readily available to help you at times where you feel stuck. Overall I enjoyed my experience greatly and will be further pursing more knowledge of the subject matter and hopefully a career in the field.

    As a recent grad of CodingDojo, this was a great tool to get me up and running with full-stack development within 3 1/2 months. Coming into the program with little experience, the course takes on a generalist approach to three full-stacks. I took Python, MERN, and Java, and each stack gets you up and running building a web app from end-to-end as fast as possible, and from there on, the sky is the limit for what you can do with fundamental groundwork they give you. I was able to leave the program with 3 full portfolio projects that, with the aid of the curriculum and guidance from the instructors, I was able to build far past what I thought would be possible for myself in with only a month of work per-stack.

    Coming out of this, I feel well prepared not only for a job in the industry, but also to continue to refine my own skills based on the groundwork already established.

    I took the online part-time Python full-stack course at Coding Dojo, and just graduated last week. 
    I had a great learning experience through their portal and with the help of the instructors. I originally took the course to learn python for scripting in audio/visual control applications for customization. I looked around at other boot camps and settled on Coding Dojo because of their pricing, and their live teaching; many of the other camps simply gave you access to their learning portal. I had some experience with code academy, so the first few weeks of html and css were more or less review and expanding on what I knew. Michael Taylor was an amazing asset through and bumps or misunderstandings I had throughout this part of the course. Once we hit python, I had some trouble switching gears so quickly, but again, Michael was available to help where the lines weren't connecting. We then spent a month on Python and Django, getting exposure to the back-end programming. This is where things started to click more for me. All the free online courses I'd taken were solidified in my mind during this month 
    I really liked the one on one meetings, where I could compile a list of things to discuss, and then go through my list with the instructor. Their Mattermost channel also had TAs available much of the time, if I ran into anything in the moment. Drew and Matthew were great at pushing me to understand the issue instead of just giving me the answer.
    When we got to the last month, focusing on Projects and Algorithms, we switched instructors to Matthew, who was also very helpful. The change of mind going from one language to another was the hardest part. 
    We did a solo webpage project and a group one in the span of 5 weeks, which made me learn a lot of new techniques, including Bootstrap and Bulma. I think the most valuable thing I learned through this whole thing, is how to learn in this field. Much of the content can be learned from the programming languages documentation, and this camp allowed me to be in a position to understand how to do that, and what the gears of a website look like and do. 
    Even though I tried to get at least 20 hours a week in of studying and practicing, I got closer to 15 most weeks, which was enough to get me to pass, but now I'm going to go over all the optional material and reinforce everything I've learned. They give you access to the portal for another 6 months after graduating.
    The only cons were that, I came across a couple areas in the curriculum that weren't super up to date, but I know they were updating things while my camp was going on, so hopefully that's fixed. I also wish you had access to the platform for longer after graduation, since the price for the course is pretty high, but I'll get as much as I can out of these remaining months that I have access. 
    I feel like you definitely need to be a proactive learner to get the most out of this program. Having the Coding Dojo team there to guide and answer questions along the way were extremely helpful.

    This was a fairly intense 4-month online course that combines teacher instruction along with self-teaching. The program is well put together and the more you put into it the more you get out of it. Not being on campus, you are expected to figure some things out on your own but they have a good system for reaching out to instructors, TA's, and other students for help. The instructors are great and make sure you know they are there to help with as many 1 on 1 meetings that you need to get you through. They follow up with a great Career Services department that is very proactive in preparing you to look for a job. I would definitely recommend Coding Dojo to anyone interested in getting into programming.  

Thanks!
