Before the class starts, students must complete "Phase 0," a series of prework exercises. Graduates of Dev Academy will also work on Agile Development, Test Driven Development, JavaScript...

    Enjoyable, but...

    The course itself (teaching React at the time) was somewhat intense but enjoyable, the instructors were friendly & helpful, and fellow students contributed to a positive atmosphere.

    Regrettably, the job placement segment in the final week was a big letdown, being little different from what you get at a jobseeker's pep talk at the social welfare department. If you still haven't found a job after several months, you're basically left hanging. Even more so when you're neurodivers...

    You need previous coding experience before starting EDA course

    I didn't enjoy this course at all. I think you need more previous coding experience than EDA staff let on in their interview with you prior to starting the course.

    The pace of the course is overwhelming too and the hours you have to put in (weekends included if you've had no prior coding experience) are super intense and leave you broken and mentally unwell. I wouldn't do this course if I had my time again!

    The Human Skills is pretty cheesy. It's hard to make some reall...

    Not worth the price tag

     

    This course is way over priced for what is offered and be wary of their advertising. They count graduates employed by Dev Academy (on a casual basis as tutors) and grads employed in jobs unrelated to ICT as 'employed'.

    Unless you have previous coding experience then you're unlikely to come out of this with the technical skills and theoretical knowledge required to secure an entry level dev role. <...

    Way Overpriced for What You Got

    With the wave of 'learn to code' being the skill set that's encouraged in the future, we have seen a trend of bootcamps jump onboard and promise to turn you from zero to hero in the space of 18 weeks, but I would warn people to not just jump on the bandwagon whilst you spend a dump truck of savings ($11k and up) for these courses.

    Personally I think it's a very risky thing - spending $11k of hard earned money on a course that's has no governmental oversight or auditing of curricu...
