    Intense and life changing.

    This was one of the most intense experiences I have done - but one of the most rewarding. Filled with amazing fellow boot campers and caring and knowledgeable coaches. If I could go back in time and experience it fresh again I would - I really feel I have been set up to succeed in the tech field.

    School of Awesome

    An excellent course (and it really isn't about code!) team work, problem solving and a new future. You will learn the basics in programming (HTML JS CSS NEXT JS REACT and much more!) mostly you will worked in teams living the agile approach. There is a chance to work on projects and demo the work you do to real employers. They support you with a job. You really couldnt find a friendlier bunch of people. It is hard work and it will be difficult at times but wow it really is the best thing...

    Best life changing choice!

    The staff is just amazing.
    Coaches, admins and whoever else. Everyone has a great vibe and they really put their heart in it.

    I cried when the official course ended.

    I believe the curriculum, and the way it's presented, is strong, but, more importantly, it's the way we "learn how to learn" that makes the difference. After this bootcamp, I just feel confident picking up any role and any language because I know I will be able to feel comfortable with it in no time.

    School of Code rocks!

    This bootcamp is much more than just a coding course, they teach you everything from computational thinking to how best to learn with your learning style, how to work effectively in a team and give feedback. We were building full stack apps in less than a week by then end and I had zero experience when I started. I can't recommend them enough. I'd love to do it all over again just for the fun and experience.

    Dynamic, Growth & Collaboration

    I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the bootcamp and I wish it could've been longer! Coding is, of-course, a challenging subject; but the coaches did an excellent job with good pace, clear explanations, and endless patience. The structured format not only enhanced my technical skills but also fostered significant interpersonal growth. This course introduces you to people from diverse backgrounds, providing a refreshing and enriching experience. Weekly collaboration with new teammates and hac...

Each person is valued and encouraged to learn quickly by the structures that are in place. Mistakes are encouraged and viewed as learning opportunities. The course is intense and each week at least one new topic is covered. There are also mindset sessions, talks from industry and p...

    Top quality for 0 cost

    I loved every second of my time with The School of Code, and I was very fortunate to have been chosen for a place on their 14th bootcamp. They provided such a fantastic opportunity for networking and upskilling; it's incredible to think that we pay nothing for it. I have gone from knowing basically nothing about coding to having a firm grasp of the entire software development lifecycle. It has ignited a new passion in me, and I am eager to continue my learning journey professionally and ...

    Life Changing Experience

    For anyone out there who is unsure whether to get themselves out of their comfort zone, learn new things, and work with a group of like-minded individuals – go for it. I applied to The School of Code late 2022 and just completed the 16-week bootcamp (March – June 2023). It was a life-changing experience. I am currently in the process of applying for roles and the post-bootcamp support has been really supportive so far. I am confident I will find a role for me to continue my learning jour...

    The school of code is not for the weak minded.

This is a challenge like no other. The days will be hard and will require sacrifice. But if you are lucky enough to be accept into the school of code, they will be your best days. You will learn to become comfortable being uncomfortable....
