    Changed my life

    Before attending Coding Temple I was working in operations management. The pay was great but the job was mundaine and stressfull. I was attending school part-time and working towards getting a degree. A good friend of mine approached me and asked if I "wanted to become a software developer after taking a 10 week course at these new schools called coding bootcamps". I immediately told him that it was a scam and told him that it sounded too good to be true.

    Intrested at what my fri...

    Better than my college classes

    Prior to Coding Temple, I attended some college classes and did some self-learning on the basics, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, even some SQL. I had a job in tech support using some light HTML and CSS, but I really wanted to get more into development. I wasn't getting the one on one attention I needed in college classes, and they weren't teaching us the newest technologies. I did a TON of research before choosing Coding Temple. The main thing for me was the .NET stack, which is very popular in th...

    Exceeded my Expectations

    After I decided to do a coding bootcamp, I went to 5 diffferent schools and asked questions, sat in on classes and researched them heavily. After speaking to Joe, the .NET instructor, I decided this was the place I wanted to be. I went from not having any coding background to being headhunted by recruiters for developer roles. But this isn't a get rich quick scheme. The classes are challenging and you HAVE to put in the work. Just showing up is definitely not enough. You must work on proje...

    The best Boot Camp ever

    Last winter, I made the decision to attend the Coding Temple. After 10 weeks of study and few months of work, I have realized, that this was one of my best decisions.

    First of all, the atmosphere in Coding Temple is amazing. You don't feel like you are just a student. You feel that you are the part of the family. You feel that peaple around you, your teachers, Ripal, another students ... , they really care.  They support you. They answer all your questions. The...

    An Ideal Learning Environment

    My experience with coding and web developing was little to none before I started the Full-stack Python course at the Coding Temple. Now seven weeks into the course, and I can't believe how far I've come. The Coding Temple creates the ideal classroom environment by keeping class sizes small and allowing for plenty of hands on teaching from friendly and highly knowlegable Instructors. The course moves very quickly so this is quite important. The Instructors will answer every you ask but if y...

    Worth every penny

    I attended Coding Temple's full stack development course this year and  found a Software Engineer 1 position less than 2 months later!

    I do have a background in programming, I was in college as a Computer Science major for 1 year before dropping out, plus some visual basic experience in high school. If you have no programming experience going in you will do just fine IF you treat the 10 weeks like a full time job 40+ hours a week.

    We had an amazing experience with coding temple at the University of Illinois at Chicago. They came to teach the students a workshop which was a great tool for any student in this generation. Majority of the students were unaware of this skill therefore it gave the students a proper insight and better understanding of what programming really is.

    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

    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.
