    Full Stack Web Development

    Overall, I can honestly say that the Craft Full Stack Developer experience was a great one. 

    I knew nothing about coding before joining this course and it was not an issue. The course begins with the basics, and at a pace that is completely maintainable. Starting with a prep month that is extremely necessary to help start building solid foundations. The instructors are always available to help throughout the day and can be reached at certain office hours later in the evening. I ne...

    Tough but good experience

    My experience at Craft Academy is not one I will soon, if ever, forget. There was much blood, sweat and tears that went into the program. That said, I had an amazing experience and feel that I came out prepared to go out into the workforce as a Junior Developer. You definitely get back as much as you put into it. 

    From the beginning, the coaches push you to be self reliant. At first I was frustrated with this approach, but now at the end of the bootcamp I am grateful that they so ...

    Not for everyone

    This boot-camp teaches you a lot about code but even more about yourself. It's important to make time, give it your all and keep up with the pace. If you do not you will not get the best out of this boot camp. You will not get extra help if you can't keep up. Remember that these coaches are not teachers they are coders, great people who love code and love to teach but in THEIR ways and methods - forget what you know from school. Most importantly - have realistic expectations, compare onl...

    So much more than coding

    This is by far the most well spent money and time I ever invested in myself.

    I expected in the beginning of this journey that I would somewhat know how to code when I was done with the bootcamp.
    What I didn't expect was that I would sit here and write this review and fully honestly say that I know how to build a responsive frontend that consumes an API, I can also build that API in a restful way and as the cherry on top I have good flow with version control and I know how to ...

    Full Stack Web Development

    When deciding on joining the bootcamp or not, I believe the most important thing to keep in mind is to really listen to the fact that you need to drop everything around you. The rest you can't really prepare for, just do it.

    A big chunk of the coding part of the course is done independently, or together with your programming partner, the hand-holding phase blows over pretty quickly. If you've grasped some of the basics before starting the ITP course even that's a big plus.

    Fast education to change fields

    This bootcamp is not for the weak, you'll be taught to be independent quickly through finding your own information och solving your problems which is something you do alot when codeing. It's a high intensity education where you get to know 2 programming languages in the course of 12 (16 if your count the part-time introduciton to programming course) weeks. The coaches support you but also make sure you stand on your own feet very quickly so prepare to not have that much hand-holding.

    Craft Academy - Full Stack Web Dev Bootcamp

    What is this?

    The process spans 16 weeks, starts with 4 easy going weeks and moves into 12 not-so-easy going weeks. Looking back, I would probably recommend that people try to learn as much as possible during the first 4 weeks as possible. Try to learn as much Ruby and JavaScript (look into ES6 syntax) as you can before the actual bootcamp begins. It will allow you to focus more on the concepts and the big picture instead of the details when they turn the heat up...

    Life Changing

    Okay, so if you're reading this you're looking for a change in your life. Maybe you want to change fields and work in tech, maybe you want to change city or country and open your horizons, or maybe you want to meet new people and create new professional and personal connections. Now you found CraftAcademy but you're a bit reluctant to spend almost 100k of your hard earned money on a new adventure. That was exactly where I was 4 months ago.

    And was it worth it, you ask? Yes, it wa...

    Most rewarding summer of my life

    Want to become a web developer in 12 weeks? The Craft Academy bootcamp is how to do so, if youre ready to bring on the challenge.

    Learing by doing is the motto here. Instead of spending hours and hours reading and talking about code and concepts, you will be thrown into the deep side of the pool and then you’ll have to learn how to swim. But not only does the course prepare you with pure coding skills - by taking agile methodologies into great account, you will develop and improv...

    Full Stack Developer Bootcamp

    Oh man! This bootcamp...

    This bootcamp was one of the most unique, intense and nerve-wracking experiences I've ever had. And I would do it all over again!

    I was a complete and total newbie when I started at Craft Academy. And when I say newbie, I mean that I could barely scroll up and down the page on my computer. I was curious about programming though and the idea of creating something out of nothing has always been appealing to me. I was at a point in my life when I r...

    Full Stack Learning - Bootcamp Style

    Craft Academy: A whirlwind, once-in-a-lifetime experience for any wouldbe programmer interested in a full-stack programming curriculum.  This no-frills course is designed to get you a career in the IT realm as fast as humanly possible.  It worked for me; I left this course 2 weeks early because I landed a job with a local Stockholm tech company as a Front End Developer.  They weren't looking for a junior, but because I had learned so much at Craft, they brought me in anywa...

    Full Stack Web Developer

    Craft Academy builds holistic software engineers capable of working and growing in the software industry. I joined Craft Academy right after graduating university with very little programming knowledge and experience. During bootcamp, we built products that enabled me learn as much as possible with regards to software development best practices, version control, TDD/BDD and many more skills while adhering to industry standards. It all did not make sense while at bootcamp (I was a bit of a ...
