    YOU can code IT as well!

    As a former journalist and editor, I've always wondered how company names are created.

    When I first heard of this school, I was confused by the title: We Can Code IT, and I kept wondering why IT was all-caps. Did they forget a copyeditor? Did their caps lock get stuck in the down position? But then I realized it was a reference to the Information Techology industry.

    And it's an industry that I'm now proud to be a part of, thanks to the learning tools and skills I gained...

    You Get What You Give!

    I completed the boot camp in the Fall of 2018 and started a Web Developer job January of 2019. You can definitely find success through this boot camp! You learn A TON of information. You get what you put into the program. All the resources are there, but it's up to you to use them to learn and understand the material. 


    My advice is for anyone considering a software coding bootcamp:
    1. SHOW UP. Don't be late to class and pay attention! Try writing down ...

    Did exactly what they said they would do

    Went to We Can Code IT's full-time spring bootcamp from mid-January to late April 2018.  Enjoyed it far more than any previous academic experience, including both undergrad and grad school.  All three instructors were knowledgeable, relatable, and fun, and my entire cohort got along really well.   We all came together as a team to help everyone do their best and handle the huge amount of learning that needed to be done in only 14 weeks.  I was able to ask all the questions and get all the ...

    A Refreshing, Challenging, Coding Intensive

    My experience at WeCanCodeITwas not atypical, I'm sure.  

     

    Someone without a coding background is told that a coding is a solid, lucrative career change.  I walked in the doors of WeCanCodeIT unsure, yet with confidence that I could make a change to my life.  From end to end I engaged with friendly, thoughtful individuals who were ready to provide an education they believed in.  

    From week to week, I learned new concepts from industry professionals, applied them in...

    Fantastic Experience!

    I decided to go to We Can Code IT after attending an info session on campus. I met the instructor, Pete, and student success coach, Melissa, and they were both really transparent and friendly and made me want to to go there. 

    Pete was our instructor for the whole cohort. He was extremely knowledgeable about all of the course materials, but his teaching style is what set him apart.  He is very invested in each student's success, and is always available to help, even on slack late at...

    I studied at the Columbus campus and was apart of the part-time cohort. To keep this short and sweet I got a job as a Software Engineer 3 days after graduation. I am making double what I did as a loan officer. Worth every penny.

    WCCI Bootcamp

    I needed a career change in my life and heard about WCCI on NPR.  I went to a meet n greet, enjoyed it,  and shortly after I was at my first day of class.  I was in the part-time cohort at the Cbus branch and loved every minute of it.  The instructors were very knowledgeable and patient with the new students learning an entire new skill.  The pace is fast but not impossible...you will work hard.  They start with the very basics and work up to full stack applications and by the end of it yo...

    Attending a coding boot camp has launched my career in IT, in roughly 4 months total. If you work hard, are proactive in the job search, and use the resources provided you too will be successful after completing this program. It is very much "what you put in - is what you get out."

    We Can Code IT is an excellent bootcamp for anyone who is serious about learning to code.  I was particularly impressed with my instructors as they were able to move at a pace that was manageable for people who were new to coding, but also challenge others who already had some experience.  The curriculum and projects were also well-designed to accommodate various levels of achievement.  The instructors were helpful and encouraging and made the class interesting and fun.  I was pleasantly s...

    I'm so glad I attended the We Can Code IT boot camp. The instructors are very experienced, funny, and are good about paying attention to students' emotional needs as well as their technical understanding. Career services give the strategy and knowledge necessary to brand yourself as a business-of-one, and the confidence to ace the tech interview and pursue networking opportunities (which was what led to my job offer).
