    Fantastic stepping stone towards a career

    From the beginning of my time at San Diego Code School, I was welcomed by a helpful community of aspiring software developers and a knowledgeable industry veteran in Michael Roberts. The way the course is setup was perfect for me. It encourages cooperation between classmates and Michael acts as a fail safe in case you are completely lost. This really teaches you to be resourceful and able to learn new things individually which is a skill required in this industry. Additionally, Wesley wa...

    Oh, you were looking for the boys club for incels?

    I've been asked by numerous students via LinkedIn, Slack, and text message to write a review of my experience because they “know [I’ll] be honest,” “don't need the ‘employment services,’” and they are afraid to share their true experience for fear of retaliation and/or ostracism, yet want prospective students to “know what they are getting into.” I hadn’t written anything to date because, honestly, I couldn’t find myself caring too much about speaking up for the people who watched what hap...

    I am sorry you don't feel you were treated fairly. I wish we had an opportunity to speak before you withdrew from our program.

    San Diego Code School is committed to equity for all of our students especially those that are women, minorities, LGBTQ, or have special needs. We are proud of our diverse student population and that of our alumni. As you are aware, we conducted an investigation of each of the claims you made while you were enrolled and found zero evidence to support your allegations after interviewing all of our students.

    The mean spirited language you used to describe your experience and other people demonstrates your level of passion but doesn't represent the truth. You are still not willing to give the most basic level of courtesy and respect to our students and staff that are working hard every day to create new opportunities.

    Based on feedback you gave us while you were in our program we made a lot of effort to provide you and all of our students a quiet space to study, a variety of lighting (although most students prefer less overhead light), and on several occasions, we discussed how to go about locating ample free public parking within a two-minute walk to campus. We are always eager to listen to feedback and to make the experience for all students as supportive as possible.

    We wish you well. I still believe you can transition into a technical role if that is what you wish. I would be happy to discuss further with you directly.

    Helped land me a job

    Great curriculum, good instruction and excellent career services. The support you get from the instructors and the other students are perfect. The course is rigorous and hard but will get you prepared for a job. The best thing I learned was communicating about code which was hard to do with self-studying. The school holds career fairs every month and I was able to land a job from one of them. I'm grateful for Mike and Margaret and all of my fellow students for a wonderful experience.

    Great school that will provide the value of an expensive coding bootcamp without the super expensive price tag. The school for the price is honestly a steal. You will get as much as you put into the curriculum. Definitely not a bad investment.

    I heard about the code school from a friend who had already graduated from this program. I mentioned to him that I was interested in programing and software engineering, so he told me to look into San Diego Code School. I did some reasearch that night and found their website where they advertised a 16 week full stack web development course with additional career services after the program. I signed up, went through their application process and joined the next available cohort. Going into ...

    The best code camp in San Diego, hands down!

      Why is San Diego Code School (SDCS) the best code camp in San Diego? The cuttting-edge technolgy stack you will learn, the access to a career network, the intimacy of the classroom- with instructors that are able to help you in real time in those moments you feel stuck, the camraderie of fellow students who share your goals, instructors who want you to get that job and not just stand on the other side of a transaction, and a unique North County location. Simply put, SDCS delivers a 'codi...

    Learned a lot!

    When I was researching coding boot camps in San Diego my friend recommended working with Michael Roberts since she had completed his curriculum and got a job. That gave me confidence in San Diego Code School and in their program.

    I just graduated, and looking back, it’s been a challenging yet great learning experience. The curriculum covers the most popular tools for building a full stack application, like JavaScript, React, Redux, Node.js, Loopback as well as GitHub, CircleCi. T...

    Helped me code and land a job!

    Before taking the program I tried to learn to code on my own through a couple high school classes and self-teaching. It was not working and I realized I really needed help because I would only code for a while and then give up when it got tough.    Fortunately, I went through the program while it was in beta and the price was very affordable. I felt that I got a lot of support from staff and fellow students, so ...

    SDCS helped me re-launch my career

    I have a background in computer science, but hadn't worked in the field for a long time, so I needed to refresh my tech skills before re-joining the workforce.  Initially I studied on my own through online courses, but realized an in person learning environment would be better.  Thankfully I heard Michael Roberts speak at a Javascript meetup and within a day or two I met with Margaret and Michael and realized SDCS was just what I needed.  I signed up immediately and dove in.

    A great experience

    I did the 16-week full-stack Javascript program and came in with little to no experience, just some code academy, and free code camp stuff. I had a great experience overall, my main concern was the general hubbub I hear about boot camps just wanting your money and not caring about you or your outcome. I found that to not be the case at all at SDCS. Michael and Margaret are VERY invested in how you are doing and progressing during the course and with your continued growth and job placement ...
