    Very good experience

    I received an excellent education from the Montana Code School. I began with a good understanding of variables, loops, conditional, and functions, and I was able to create very simple web pages. That foundation was perfect preparation. MTCS taught me web app development with React, Redux, Node, Express, and MongoDB in 3 months - material that probably would have taken me 1 year (or more) to learn on my own.

    Well Worth It

    I came into the program from a much different background and needed something to really jumpstart my knowledge of Web Development. This was exactly what I needed. I wouldn't have learned as much on my own as I did with this course. The daily Toy Problems, while frustrating, really got me to figure out how to approach javascript and think through the process. Being pushed on a daily basis really made me stretch myself. I'm glad that I took this course.

    Career shift

    At the time that I found the Montana Code School, I was looking for a total career change. The code school allowed me to totally submerge myself into web development, without the commitment of returning to a 2 or 4 year program. You are taught the leading industry technologies, along with Agile and Lean programming methodologies.    

    I successfully learned the essential fundamentals of program development to propel me into the technology sector. This program assist...

    I'm working as a web developer now!

    Within 30 days of graduating from Montana Code School, I landed a job working locally in Bozeman on the website of a national retailer.

    Montana Code School prepped me for real-life experience in the job market.  When I interviewed, the Lead Developer was impressed with my knowledge of the full stack stating, "I surprised you understand what goes into end-to-end of web development.  I've known people with 5 years experience that do not have a wholistic understanding of web archite...

    Learned so much

    I learned so much in this 12 week bootcamp that it made me question the classical ed. system. Why go to college if you can learn so much more, so much more cheaply in so much less time?

    Worth every penny, and all the time committed!

    This 3-month immersive code school was a perfect fit for me.  I had been introduced to coding and programming in my previous job, but really wanted a full-stack experience and education - without going back to the University for 2 years - to take to my next employer.

    In the first week you build a complete end-to-end app, and the depth and breadth of what you learn and build continues to grow from there.  The learning style is different from traditional schooling, in that you are ...

    mcs

    I would not recommend the school to students looking to get into a coding career; at least not one in Missoula. Job promises were implied, but upon graduating and looking for work, there are few to no jobs in Missoula and they do not seem interested in hiring Code School graduates. The community is really letting down all the students that have put in hundreds of hours of studying and coding, yet the employers response is portrayed as 'we aren't good enough'. If the community wants to grow...

    100% Scam

    My experience at Montana Code School was extremely poor. Our cohort was a mess from the beginning and the prospect of a career in the field afterwards is further fueled by their skewed numbers. The school claims a 90%+ job placement rate for graduates, which is false. The 90% doesn’t relate to job placement in the tech industry, but rather any job afterwards. I could flip patties at McDonalds and be considered part of that number.

    Furthermore the school has weak connections in th...

    This school talks a big game but delivers nada.  Spent close to $7,000 and 3 full months with promises of assistance in finding and being hired for a well paying job.  Again, nada.  Do the math.  average 10 people per class, three classes a session, these people are racking in the bucks with no accountability.  I am still looking for that "well paying job" that was promised.  Have spoken with a number of students from my class as well as prior classes.  No jobs.  Keep looking.  This isn't ...

    Worth the challenge

    Montana Code School is a wonderful experience. Although it is very challenging and intensive, it is very worth it especially if you are strong-willed and a good student.

    Life Changing Experience

    I absolutely enjoyed every moment of Montana Code School. Both instructors were great. I loved learning coding but I also enjoyed learning agile methodology and software development practices. It's a great well rounded curriculum.  My cohort was great. Everyone helped each other out--instructors were very much willing to spend extra time with the students. From my experience, what you put into it is what you get out of it.

    Regarding job assistance, the school has an in depth netw...

    Keep Looking

    One of the instrutors was great!  The other was terrible.  The school promissed to help students find jobs but no such assistance was ever given.  I had to attend a second boot camp to learn skills needed in the real work foce.  I would not recommend this school!
