    The course content and layout was perfect, with each topic perfectly setting you up for the next. With classes in the morning and coursework to complete in the afternoon you had plenty of support to help you in your journey, by the end of the course I expected to know the basics, yet my abilities have far surpassed that! I now have successfully gained a position as a Graduate Software Developer and I am so grateful for the whole team at Epicode.

    Life-changing experience. Extremely intense six months that give you the knowledge and practice you need to change your life and become a professional developer. The quality of the teaching is top-class. The curriculum is cleverly put together, which you confirm when you start looking for a suitable job: you learn what companies are after. More than anything, the sense of community and the helpfulness of everyone involved are extraordinary.

    Are you looking for a change? This might be just right for you!

    I was a little sceptical at first but I had totally changed my mind after finishing the course. You might be a good self learner with uncountable resources on the internet but the experience is incomparable. Working in a team with coding is totally different from working alone. There are many ways to implement the code and you will learn a lot from others.  The schedule is really intense if you have no prior experience in programming before. You also get invaluable support after graduate in networking and job seeking.

    Let me start by telling you that you get the best out of this bootcamp if you put a lot of effort into it. The 6 months of learning will be crazily intense, they will be throwing at you a lot of theory and expect you to put it into code, and at the end of every module you will need to build software using the tools you have studied about during the previous weeks. The teachers and the people in charge of helping you landing the job afterwards are all young and energetic, and they take their job really seriously. Fellow students and alumni are gonna be an actual resource for you during the course. You will make great progresses, personally I felt like there was some backlog because there really is a lot of stuff to learn, but if you are willing to spend a couple evenings or a weekend to catch up, or ask your teachers for some help understanding something, they will provide you with everything you need to master the topic. The rest is up to you: put in the time and you will see how quickly you'll be able to use complex and sought after libraries such as Sci-Kit Learn, Pytorch, Flask, Streamlit.

    Stay hungry, stay foolish - Steve Jobs
    I strongly believe in this and which made me change my career path by joining strive school (now EPICODE Global).
    Embedded software engineer turned Frontend Developer.

    It all started around August last year, my husband introduced me to Strive school, As he knew that I was interested in learning new technologies, especially Frontend development.

    What I really liked about Strive School is its level of dedication to making its students learn and understand the concepts of web development. I really liked the course structure as it literally replicates any full-time job with the support of highly smart teachers, teaching assistants, and tutors whose only goal is to make their students succeed.


    On the other hand, what I am personally proud of myself is the level of dedication that I could put in during those last 5-6 months to learn and understand the technology.
     I have seen myself not leaving my spot at home for hours until I find the solution to the problem at hand. 
    I always believe that if we find something which we love doing it might seem like work to others but for us, it feels like a play. And this is what exactly I noticed happening to me. 

    I am very proud of what I have accomplished by joining Strive School (now EPICODE Global) to learn "Front-end Web development".
    And now I can say myself as a Frontend developer

    Kudos to Strive School (now EPICODE Global) team. I hope that you guys will keep up the same level of quality and commitment for the next months and years to come.

    I did the Fullstack web development. From start to end my experience was amazing. Best teachers I ever had. Each one is specialized in one area and they know well what they’re doing. I can say I never been so focused in class as I did in Strive, the way the day is split with live lectures in the morning and homework in the afternoon makes it very engaging. I 100% recommend for who is starting. I just suggest you practice a bit of javascript, html and css before, not much, just have some notions. 
    Apart from coding, the job hunting assistance from specialized coachs was crucial to me finding a job. Now I can say I’m very happy in my new beginning with this new job as a fullstack developer.

    Strive School is the best when we talk about BootCamps. It’s super-intensive, well-structured, organized and supportive in every aspect of their training. From zero knowledge to Professional level in an interval of six months, quite unbelievable but true because of their organized structure, professional teachers, great management team and capable tutors always read to help and assist. I would recommend Strive School to anyone who really wants to succeed and become proficient with his/her skills.

    Strive School has been one of the best choices I have made in my life, at first I was kinda skeptical that I would've been able to learn all that stuff in only 6 months, it's been sometimes hard, but the results were great, I started with a bit of coding knowledge, so I wasn't a complete beginner, but even if you're starting from 0 you can do it

    After an internship and a little freelance internship i was struggling to find a company that could teach me 
    the state of art technology for web development. 

    By luck I found strive school, the company that act as the missing piece in the chain of an 
    IT industry that hardly need a vital supply of competent web developers.

    Personally the experience done here is one of the most valuable asset of my resume, and i gonna explain why:

    - The time and dedication spent here are all dedicated to your skill development,
       where in a company , ( when they train, and the company-tutor is competent ) is still a half effort and not always full of 
       transferable skills.

    - The curriculum, the structure and career section are tailored for being a fit for Europe market , 
       it's a the best way for reach remote positions in international teams. 

    - if you have some little experienced like me but not that much for cover real lead roles, 
      you gonna have here the opportunity to start gaining Project-Management, Mentoring and leadership skills in a
      not-critical context, thing that is very rare to experience in a conventional context.

    - this curriculum also lends itself adequately for a freelance activity in the case it's your desired goal 

    - Thanks to the strive's growing network of companies and reputation, 
      you are likely to be hired in shorter times, with less interview steps and in respectable and compliant companies.
      More than career service the real asset long term gonna be your connections done here, 
      expanding your opportunity-awareness and opportunity-hitting  surface areas.

    - Thanks to the Income Share Agreement model, 
       Strive gonna be always interested in making you successful and rightfully payed, 
       your success is strive's income and reputation.
       Is to say also, that the terms are a "fair bet" and 
       cover all the scenarios needed for qualify them as Positive agreements,

    Even I had previous experience in software development I learned so much in strive. At the end of the course, they also help to find a job and I think that's the most important thing. 
    After graduating I find a great job in a month with the help of strive. Currently, I'm working as a frontend developer at inoviagroup.se 

Thanks!
