    A Great Place to Start a new Career!

    I came to WeGotCoders after nearly a year of unemployment, trying to break into the tech world. I had just finished university (a degree in Politics, hilariously enough) and was feeling incredibly disheartened. 

    I found WeGotCoders while searching for opportunities in and around London and it was the perfect place for me to get going. After contacting Carrie (Recruitment) and discussing what I wanted out of the course and moving forward, I was invited to try and complete the codi...

    A life changing course

    I joined WGC with the aim of getting into a career I am passionate about, growing my skills from amateur to a professional level. Now that I have completed the course, I can happily say that they delivered, as not only we covered an incredible amount of knowledge but I got hired pretty much on the spot, at the end of my final presentation.   There was of course challenging aspects to the training, you will be coding everyday from 9am until late in the evening ...

    Does what it says on the tin

    Speaking from experience, this is a solid choice for those who are serious about becoming a full time developer. This course is not for the faint of heart, or for those on the fence about becoming a programmer. You will be coding practically all day, every day for 3-4 months. It is hard, and you will struggle. If you persevere however, you will end up being significantly better at programming.

    Thanks to this course, I landed a job only a week after presenting my final project. I'...

    Start your career in coding

    I looked at starting trying to change career in early 2017, having decided I wanted to move into web development I started doing online tutorials on codecademy and really enjoying it. However, I needed something to help bridge the gap between an amateur with no experience and becoming a professional web developer. I decided I would go through a boot camp to try and do this as quick as possible.

    I found We Got Coders through some quick googles and the premise sounded great. After ...

    High paced top notch development course with fantastic and fun teachers

    We Got Coders (WGC) came highly recommended to me by a prior graduate who rated Dan Garland’s teaching very highly. At this stage my knowledge of web development and web infrastructure was quite limited, but it was not completely new to me. I’d done several Codecademy courses, and went on the CityLit Introduction to Programming course (in Python) before deciding programming was the one for me. Practically I’d only ever built a couple of Wordpress sites and written a few very basic programs...

    Want a job as a developer? Do this course!

    I discovered WeGotCoders by chance while browsing the internet and the course really peaked my interest. I was super fortunate that it was located only about a 20 minute drive from my house so when they announced they were doing an open day for potential new students I jumped at the chance to go meet the people at WGC and see what it was all about.

    I was super impressed by not only the location and the house but also by Dan (the owner and lead instructor at WGC...

    Unfulfilled potential

    This course could have been absolutely fantastic, and I really wish it had been. However, I'll list the positives before getting into how it let me and some others down.

    Positives

    Lorin, the main instructor, is incredible. He will answer any question he can, or he'll go away and figure out the answer if he can't, then go through it with you. A natural teacher - friendly, hilariously quirky and uncompromisingly dedicated to the ...

    Life Changer

    I graduated We Got Coders in February 2018 and after less than 2 weeks I got a job.

    I decided to go to We Got Coders after a careful research, being the only boot camp that provides residential accommodation, out of the busy London, and most importantly covering a great area of Full Stack Web Development skills, it was my number one and only choice.

    I would like to make it clear that you will have to work really hard, the pace of the course is v...

    Highly Recommend

    This course was really fantastic.  As a female in my late 30s, I wasn't keen on a frat-house environment. And given my learning style, I respond best to small classes and personalised tuition.  I wasn't disappointed on either front.  The mansion is beautiful and quiet and our chef created delicious meals.  It meant that we were able to wholly focus on consuming the large amount of course work.  Most days I was doing 12 - 14 hours coding and loving it!

    The two instructors clearly ...

    If you're a woman and don't intend to take your boyfriend along with you for protection, you may want to go to Makers Academy instead

    I was put in a really awkward position when one of the instructors (an irresponsible, cradle-snatching, American man whose name my sister has suggested that I leave out of this review) had taken it upon himself to play matchmaker on behalf of a slow-witted misogynist who had also enrolled in the course. This instructor would use mealtimes as an opportunity to make inappropriate comments about my supposed compatibility with the misogynist in question, who was a drug-addicted trainee with th...
