    I took the Javascript Part-Time course in the fall, and I have to say that it was one of the best decisions. I feel like I learned more real skills that I would use working in the 10 weeks than I did in my 4 years of undergrad. Coding Temple is very focused on hands-on experience which I think was the key in learning so quickly and in-depth. They are also very good about helping find a job after you graduate which I think makes them stand out from other bootcamps. Great school and also great people that run it.

    I found Coding Temple during my search for a career change. Programming is something I have always wanted to do, so I decided to give it a shot. Overall I had a great exerience at the Coding Temple. There is a great environment and the small class size really allows the instructor to be available whenver you need him. Joe was extremely knowledgable and professional. Ripal was very helpful with job placement. Several recruting companies came in to meet the class. I was actually able to find a job the following week of Coding Temple. I would recommend it to anyone looking to get into coding!

    I took the full time/full stack .net course which is a 10 week class.  From start to finish I found the course extremely challenging but also rewarding, and importantly each class assignment turns into a project for your portfolio.  Most importantly though not only did I feel ready to take on the technical aspects of a job as a developer, Coding Temple leverages their resources with the tech recruiting community to help find your first position.  I graduated the course on Thursday and reported to my first full time paid developer position on Monday just 4 days later. The skills, portfolio, and recruiting prep you receive at Coding Temple I believe sets them above other competitors.

Joe is a great instructor to have because he helps you a lot during class and after class with your assignments/projects if help is needed. The job help is extraordinary, they get you fitted into the right job field you wish to desire as best as possible. Everything they teach at Coding Temple is in depth. There's alot of group assignments and alot of indivudual asssignments. A very friendly environment and a great place to be, I'm glad I made the decision to apply for Coding Temple and you should apply as well! You wont regret it.

    Coding Temple was a truly amazing opportunity. The focus on .Net and the smaller class size really sets it apart. The curriculum is in-depth,  well taught, and really practical. They're also great about connecting their students with recruiters and advocating for them. I booked a coding job less than a day after I finished. Also, they make themselves available to you post graduation as you progress in your career. This can be an invaluable asset if you want to brush up on a technology, prepare for an interview, or are just looking for advice from a senior developer. One of the best choices I've ever made.

    The .NET course was really helpful and learn a lot about different concepts and used various tools throughout the course. The instructor is really good at teaching different concepts and good at explaining how each concept works for all languages. He was also good at helping out with hands on concepts and work with strudents one on one to help understand the concept better. We build many different applications throughout the course. I worked on building a e-commerce application for a clothing line. There was a lot of different pair programming and group that was involved at Coding Temple, which I really enjoyed. I would recommand anyone that wants to learn .NET.

    I attended a beginner SQL course. The course was very interactive as well as informative. jennifer the instructor did a very good job at making sure everyone was following along and understanding the material being taught. The course moves at very good pace allowing students to rasp the material very well. Also during the course there was a breif presentation by robert half who demonstrated how much of a dmeand there was for people with skills in SQL, also they remained after the course to provde help with students looking for jobs. I would definetly recommend taking a course or attending a workshop at coding temple as they have very skilled teachers, and their strong focus on helping their students get placed in the work force after graduation.

    I was a student for Coding Temple's first cohort and I can defnitely say that it was a valuable experience. The instructor, Hitesh, was an expert at all the topics that were covered and was able to answer every student's questions and provide us his insight from his career experience. The class size is kept under 8 students so everyone has their indivdual attention and learning needs accomodated for. There are multiple projects assigned throughout the course that forces you to take a "learn by doing" approach; projects that are then available to add to your portfolio of development work.  Since it was a part-time camp with an intense amount of topics that needed to be covered, the instructor also made himself available outside of class to assist anyone that needed additional help. Coding Temple provides you with all the resorces and infomation needed to develop your skills to be fit for an entry level development role. The experience was nothing short of superb.

    I attended the introduction to C# event through Meetup this weekend and it was much more informative than I expected for a free workshop.  The presenter/instructor, Avi, that taught the workshop was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.   

    My main intention for attending the workshop was to see if I would fit in the 12-week course that is coming up in January and I was assured that my very limited understanding of programming would be just fine.  I'm looking forward to future workshops and hopefully being accepted into Coding Temples next course.

    Coding temple is a very great way to start your computer science experience. And if you have experience than you can also get master at it and expand your knowledge on various topics... Location is best .. Close to union station or you can take cta trains too. Teaching and organizing staff are awesome. They will work with you at your on convinent time. They will do everything that they possibly can do to help you like skype help, out side school help and also they can meet you up in near by location. Instructor will give you real life example to explain you what is exactly your are require to do in this field. They will also train you for interview and also they will train you at your best.  It requires more time outside of on campus classes but at the end it will pay of good:)

    The Coding Temple Live Online program changed my life and career in just ten weeks. Derek was a fantastic professor that cared about all of his students. The class sizes at Coding Temple are small, which made it easy for someone like me that did not have any coding experience before this course. I am very happy that I decided to take Coding Temple.

    Coding Temple was hands down one of the best decisions I have ever made. I think that everyone gets a little bit of hesitation before they sign up for a coding bootcamp. The typical "I don't know if this will work out, should I do this or get a degree?" - but let me tell you something. I have a job at Draft Kings now.

    Could I have gone to college and get a full blown degree? Of course. But I would have been no less than $140k in the hole. Coding Temple was only $12k. And even then, I don't believe I would've gotten the same hands on experience that got me a job at one of the greatest sports companies out there.

    This program is not for the weak. It's 10 weeks, accelerated, there's a lot of projects you have to do. You go in for 7 hours a day and come home with another 3-4 hours of homework. Coffee becomes your new best friend. At the end of the day, though, this solution worked best for me. I have 2 kids at home, and while being a Dad and going to college is possible, it's difficult. You'll never know what'll happen, and 10 weeks FT simply worked better.

    Connor is an excellent instructor, a real salt of the Earth kind of guy, and he loves sports! We often chatted about the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB during break time while  playing ping pong, which he's very good at. So if you decide to take this course, that might be worth practicing too, haha.

    Kirsten is a sweetheart, she checks up on you to see how you're doing before, during and after the course. Don't hesitate to ask her for help in your job search, or asking her to be a reference, she's more than happy to!

    If you're looking to take a Coding Bootcamp in Boston, this is the one.

    Coding Temple is worth the time and money. Already working in a "technical" field, my learnings at Coding Temple were applied almost immediately. 

    For someone like me, who likes to have a little extra practice and one-on-one interactions with my instructor, Coding Temple makes this possible.  The instructors were always available, which really helped to fine-tune the skills i was learning.  I'm extremely happy with my decision.  If you're thinking about it. ...go for it!

    I can't speak highly enough about my experience with Coding Temple!  I graduated with a background in communications, and really wasn't happy career-wise. I felt very stuck professionally and monetarily, and knew i wanted to advance in my career, but didn't know what to do.  My only regret is not enrolling at Coding Temple sooner.  I'm so pleased with my choice, and coding temple was instrumental in helping me find a new job post graduation!

    I started the coding temple this past summer in the Python/Data Science full 10 week course. Prior to this I had no coding experience whatsoever, knew very little about anything to do with software development, and really could not tell you the difference between a mac and a windows. I started the class with Derek Hawkins as our instructor and he made it very easy to navigate through the course and learn the basics without getting overwhelmed. From then we delved into various harder concepts as we almost covered a language a week. This is where it is up to the student to decide how much he or she wants to get from the class as I truly believe if you put in the work you will be rewarded. If you try to take shortcuts and not complete the material and work on the projects on your own time you will fall behind and it is not easy to catch up. Towards the last few weeks of class, Ripal was of great assistance in helping with resume building, connections, and ultimately sending jobs that were good fits for us as students. He works for you until you successfully get a job and that I believe sets this coding experience different than the others. Everyone at the coding temple looks to help YOU and make sure you get the chances you deserve after putting in the time to learn the course material. I recently got an offer from a top financial client in which I am forever grateful for to the Coding Temple.

    I knew that in order to advance my career I needed to add data science to my skillset to make myself more marketable and valuable . After spending 10 weeks at Coding Temple, I could not be more than happy with my decision.  Although temporarily leaving my job to advance my career was difficult, it was well worth it.  About 5 weeks after graduation I was able to get a new higher paying job that essentially would pay my investment in Coding Temple in 6 months.
     
    Ripal was extremely helpful in getting my foot in the door with a few different companies that looked suitable for me.  Just having that piece of mind that someone is working to do everything they can to help you land your next job is worth it.
     
    This curriculum moves very fast and at times it's very frustrating when you are stuck on a project, but figuring it out on your own or with one of your cohort classmates is very rewarding.  It feels like real world experience  Do not expect to take this class and for it to come easy.  I put in at least 15-20 hours a week after class during the last weeks for my capstone project.
     
    Overall from my experience as someone looking to advance their career,  I couldn't recommend Coding Temple enough

    I completed the .NET program at the Coding Temple in Chicago and was very pleased with my experience. It is a very demanding and quick moving program but well worth the investment. The technologies and languages I learned during this program made finding a job easier because they up to date with what is currently being used. The projects that we worked on, both individually and as a group, made an excellent portfolio, and our final project served to give me excellent experience working on a fullstack project. On top of the knowledge gained they also prepared me to find a job after the program. Through mock interviews, resume building, and bringing in recruiters and representatives from tech companies I felt that they really cared about helping all of us find employment after the program. Big thanks to Ripal in particular for this. All in all I think that this program is worth the investment of both time and money, and should definitely be considered by anyone who wants to change careers and needs a foot in the door,  or anyone who wants to get caught up in the field.

    I came out of UIC with and engineering degree. I always had an interest pursuing a career in the IT industry starting with my first semester of my junior year. I began to take more computer science classes at my university. I applied to many full stack positions and did not have much luck exept for a few out of state which was not exactly what I wanted.

    I then made the best decision of my life. I enrolled in the 10 week python course at coding temple. I learned more about coding at Coding Temple than at my university from my junior to senior year of college. I was shocked that I was learning so much in so little time. The team at coding temple was extremely helpful, they will always help you no matter the issue. If you need extra help they are willing to work out a time and they will not stop until you understand exactly what it is that you came in for, providing that one on one attention to each student. When it came to the end of the course they were more than helpful when it came to applying for jobs, interview prep, and resume building. 

    Before I decided to go through and commit to coding temple, I attended two of their workshops along with other coding bootcamps in the area. From the atmosphere and interaction I recevied from attending it became obvious to me that I must attend coding temple and stick through it till the end.

    Coding Temple has changed my life. I had very little experience prior to this course, so naturally I was nervous about learning all the knowledge needed in a 10-week time frame. Hitesh the instructor was nothing but amazing. He spent a lot of time making sure everyone in the course understood the concepts and we were able to apply the knowledge. The skills I learned at Coding Temple are far more than I think I could have learned from a 4-year program. Ripal does a great job in connecting us to the right resources after the course is completed. The course is really difficult and you are expected to put in over 50 hours a week in learning and applying the concepts. If you are considering a bootcamp, I strongly recommend Coding Temple!

    I recently attended an Angular JS workshop at the nerdery, that was hosted by Coding Temple.  Brian, a former student, did a great job giving an overview of the concepts & breaking them down step by step.  Having no previous knowledge of computer language, it certainly made me more interested in the industry itself.  During the workshop, coding temple did a great job leading by example, then actually having us apply the presented information in code.  After attending this workshop, I have been in touch with Coding Temple for the summer.NET course.  I'm really looking forward to the challenge and hopefully career changing journey!!
