    Disorganized and Unprofessional

    Those are the words that I would use to describe the experience that I had as a Full-time .NET student at Coding Temple. I can't emphasize enough how disappointed I am and was during my time as at this "school". 


    The Layout of the School
     I don't really know where to begin with my dissatisfaction with Coding Temple. I will start with the bizarre physical set-up of the school itself: it's very similar to a college fra...

    Ripal Patel of Coding Temple

    Campus Director

    May 09, 2017

    We've attempted to reach out to "A." to resolve some of their concerns in an amicable manner. In the interim, we feel that it is important to acknowledge that, for several reasons, we did not meet the expectation of a student that enrolled our full-time .NET Class.
    Specifically, the Coding Temple team would like to address criticism about the level of professionalism demonstrated by our instructors, our facility, our curriculum, and our expectations of enrollees.
    One of our goals at Coding Temple is to balance the demanding pace of the course material with a relaxed learning environment.
    After several hours of intensive instruction, we often encourage students to utilize our lounge area to play games or to converse with fellow students or instructors.
    To this end, we furnish a full-size ping pong table, several video game systems, a dartboard, and board games for students to use during designated break times.
    At the time of this writing, I will note that we do not, in fact, have a fooseball table, though we may consider adding one in the future.
    We also frequently have music playing in the lounge, but actively monitor the volume so as not to distract from class activities.
    Given the construction and size of the facility, this can create noticable amount of noise.
    As such, we strongly discourage students from playing ping-pong or engaging in loud activities during lectures, and we feel that the noise levels during lectures are in line with a typical office environment.
    That said, each student will have their own subjective tolerance for ambient noise and chatter.
    We encourage all of our prospective enrollees to visit our facility prior to enrolling in our courses, which should provide a sense of the environment and pace of instruction.
    We briefly interview each prospective student to get a sense of aptitude and to undestand their expectations.
    Ultimately, we try to advise each prospective student on an appropriate way to become a software developer - in many cases, we've suggested alternate materials and courses that are aligned with their aptitide and expectations.
    As "A." points out, it is possible to teach yourself to code using freely available online tutorials, and some of our prospective enrollees may also benefit from a more traditional learning environment that moves at a more relaxed pace and spends more time on each topic.
    We ask each prospective student about prior experience with computer programming, and clearly outline the commitment of time and effort required both in and out of class by each student.
    In the case of reviewer "A.", there was a clear miscommunication on both of these issues.
    Moving forward, we've modified our enrollment process to make sure that such miscommunications do not happen in the future.
    We'll continue to examine our process for evaluating applicatants to make sure that we meet the expectations of everyone who enrolls.
    Per the organization and delivery of the material, we've spent a great deal of time creating a scaffolded curriculum that builds toward overall understanding of the concepts of full-stack web development.
    We feel that the terms, concepts, and tools covered in our provided curriculum and used during class are adequate to teach the skills required.
    As reviewer "A." points out, there is an abundance of online learning material that can be extremely helpful in supplementing the instruction and materials provided by Coding Temple,
    Students may benefit from differentiated instruction or explanation not provided by Coding Temple.
    One of the challenges of teaching web development is the constantly-evolving ecosystem of technologies.
    Our instructors are constantly updating and refining materials to keep topics relevent, and to create materials to differentiate content based on individual student aptitude.
    At the conclusion of each course we actively solicit feedback from students to understand where we can improve our course materials, and instructors put in a great deal of effort outside of instruction hours to provide the best curriculum we can.
    In conclusion, we take this sort of feedback seriously.
    We want each student to have a positive experience at Coding Temple.
    As this review clearly indicates, we did not meet the expectations of "A." in terms of learning environment, level of professionalism, or course material.
    We are attempting to address the concerns as we've outlined, and we're confident that that changes we are making will have a positive impact on the experience of our future students.

    Very Recent Python Alum

    Six Months ago, I found myself on this very site reading about Coding Temple as well as other bootcamps hoping to learn more about this interesting new avenue. I had dabbled in HTML/CSS, but had nearly zero experience when it came to actual programming. I decided I wanted to change that. Before long, I was booking a visit to head down to Coding Temple's office in downtown Chicago to check it out and learn more about the programs available.

    Full-Time ASP.NET MVC Bootcamp

    While researching coding bootcamps in Chicago, Coding Temple stood out to me because of the focus on the Microsoft .NET stack, small class sizes, and positive Course Report reviews.  I signed up for the Winter cohort after attending a Meetup, where I was able to connect with several alumni and the course instructor to get my questions answered, and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made.  As someone whose only prior experience with coding was some HTML/CSS and a sing...

    .NET course Review

    I was part of the full time/full stack .net course. Since the beginning it was a challenging course but the instructors are there to answer any question you may have; the classes are small so you can get the most out of it. The thing that I loved about the course is the hands-on experience, the chance to create your own projects, so you can see what you really know and what you need to study a bit more. It was really well taught; to the point that someone who never had contact with coding ...

    Javascript Part-Time

    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 gre...

    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 repo...

    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.
