I've been a tech recruiter in Silicon Valley (with companies such as Facebook) for many years and I must say that if you've been wanting to start a career in web development while wanting to explore new cultures, there's no better place to be than the Spiced Academy. Spiced has some of the best curriculum and teachers focused on critical thinking/fundamental skills needed in both interviews and when on the job. They'll help you go from knowing very little about the digital world to securely programming your own ideas in less time than a typical college internship. After graduating, they'll help you to successfully navigate the exploding Berlin tech scene.
Lastly, Spiced is a great way to get introduced to a new city and make new friends. There are hosted meetups, hackathons, and happy hours to get to know one another and the larger community. If you're looking for a reasonably priced entry into a new career in a fun, vibrant, international city, the Spiced Academy is the place to be.
I am an architect but a couple of years ago I became very interested in computer science and coding. I decided it was something I definitely wanted to learn, but I couldn't find the will to do it by myself online, nor the time to take a university degree.
After reviewing several bootcamps both in the US and in the EU, I finally found the right one! Much better than anything in London, Barcelona, Madrid... Why?
- First of all, they have a great professional team. Everyone, from the CTO to the teaching assistants will be there to help you and give you advice.
- Second, they have a great curriculum: for the first time in my education life I was learning actual USEFUL stuff. Things companies require the moment you start applying for a job. And it's not a few weeks, it's actual months, so we go deep into everything we learn.
- Third, they have a great space in Berlin, really beautiful offices full of light, space to work, a really nice kitchen...
- Last, but not least, the price. It's an investment, and it's much cheaper than all the american bootcamps, and quite well priced among the europeans. If you work hard on it -and they'll make it easy- you can get a job after graduation in a matter of weeks!
Looking back, I can say it was one of the best choices of my career. Completely worth it!
Spiced was an important step for me, both as a person in a new city and as student in a new profession. They really helped me get into the swing of things quick and craft an atmosphere that fosters co-operation among students to help them crack down on what they do not know. They even let me have a payment plan so the fee wasn't that steep.
I really felt welcome there and the unavoidable feeling of being dumb when learning something new was easily absobed thanks to Julia, David and Matt - my teachers who will always have a soft fuzzy spot in my heart.
Big Thumbs up!
10 outta 10 would code again!
I always wanted to learn how to code, made several attempts with online coding schools but never got very far. Therefore after long considerations, I finally decided to enrol in a coding bootcamp. I can only say I have not regretted my decision for even one moment.
I still remember the first time I met Shilpa, the Director of Programms and Community at SPICED, for the first time after she gave me an appointment to check out SPICED HQ.
She was so friendly, so was Frederik, SPICED CEO and Founder, and David, CTO and Head Coach.
Day in day out, we programmed and built awesome apps using the lastes frameworks, libraries and technologies. All what I can say about that is you have to be prepared for an instensive 9 hours of programming every day that you wish you had before (if you are really willing to learn). In my experience, I would spend three months in an intensive bootcamp rather spending, at least, tripple the amount of time watching free online courses, even paid ones! I did that before I went to SPICED and I wouldn't say that it was a waste of time, but It was so easy to forget! At the bootcamp, they wouldn't let me leave the class before I understand what they were trying to teach me. That was for me a BIG PLUS becuase it showed me how much they care.
Ok wait a minute.. did I say "they"? Who are they?
Well, I already mentioned David but there are also 2 teachers/assistants.
First is Julia, SPICED Teaching Assistant & Developer. One of the most experienced array-fan developer that you will ever meet!
You'll know her more once you meet her.
Oh, and make sure to be on time or she would like to have a lil chat with you over a cup of coffee. Ask me about that. Well, let's face it > you are being serious and you want to learn? you be on time. Period. That proved me, again, how much they care about their students.
Second is Matt, SPICED Teaching Assistant & Developer. Matt is more of a friend than a teacher to me. His skills are just beyond mind and I am proud to say that he taught me once! He, David and Julia make just a great team. I have been taught by masters!
Shilpa did an awesome job in workshops she led at SPICED. She taught us lots of useful tips of how to create our CV as developers (should be unique), make our cover letters (because you have to) and along with Matt, how to organize our LinkedIn profile. Basically, everything you need to be job ready.
I would really recommend paying them a visit and check the school out. You'll know what I am talking about once you are there!
As of Jan 16, I am in my 6 weeks period of programming a
My experience at Spiced was one of the best experience in my life. Four months full of challenges. I meet very smart classmates and teachers, who have a great impact in my life.
In my Demo Day I was offered to work for a company that I'm working for right now.
I always wanted to live in Berlin, and I decided to join SPICED to increase my job prospects.
The staff are great, the curriculum is tough but I think it has to be in order to get the jobs I want!
All in all I was very happy and couldn't be happier to recommend SPICED.
I was a participant in one of their courses which was on July 16.
They are so profisional when it comes to teaching. They have very qualified instructors.
Their courses are intensive so if you have to be prepared to spend your time wisely.
By the end of the course, they offer Job Assistance. Do your best and your job oppurtunity is their for you once you finish.
My advice is to pay them a visit and experience that by yourself.
