Wild Code School

Avg Rating:4.95 ( 67 reviews )

Wild Code School is a 5-month, European training program teaching in-demand digital skills through a blended learning approach. Wild Code School was created to train digital professionals to adapt to the changing work environment. The teaching style uses a combination of e-learning, in-class training, and hands-on projects where students master agile project management methods and other collaborative tools. Students are taught web development languages and application frameworks that vary from program to program. For example: PHP/Symfony, JavaScript, AngularJS, Vue.js, React or Java and Android.

Wild Code School is open to everyone, regardless of previous academic achievements and prior computer skills. Individuals interested in joining the program must first complete a series of exercises on the school’s online platform, Odyssey. These exercises are meant to give applicants a better idea about what the job of web development entails. Once the exercises are completed, applicants will be invited onto the campus where they will discover the school's teaching approach over drinks and food. They will be able to ask questions to the staff as well as current students. The final step is an interview.

To help ensure job placement for their students, Wild Code School provides customized support. Students will be able to interview with partner companies, get HR advice, and partake in job “dating sessions.” 87% of Wild Code School graduates are employed one year after graduation.

    Great school, great support from trainer and manager! They make sure we're comfortable and satisfied with everything. The methodology is so amazing you can never get bored. We're already making progress in such a short period of time, it's impressive how fast we're learning things and putting them into practice with real life web development projects. It's a really intense 5-month course, but I'm sure I will be qualified for any job opportunities that'll come up when I finish the course. Would 10000% recommend Wild Code School Dublin to anyone!

    I got admitted to Wild Code School Amsterdam's first batch 2020 Web Devp course, 2 days into it and I feel this is the best thing that has happened to me in a while now. The admission process involved an online challenge followed by 2 interviews. The tech interview with Ashleigh (from London) and the personal interview with Edo, our campus Manager went really well, giving me a fair idea that chosing Wild Code is going to be one of the best decisions. We are 2 days into the program now and I already feel that this was one of the best decisions I have made. Their blended learning approach works really well especially for those who are back to studying something after a long time. The gamification of learning is highly motivating ( you get challenges and quests after each topic) and makes the whole learning process fun. What makes them unique is the 5 months duration compared to a lot of 10 to 12 weeks bootcamps you see in Amsterdam city. The campus is located in a central location right off the famous Rijks Museum, making it is easily accesible. We have a no socks policy, and have to agree that it does help is better coding ;-)!! I would highly recommend Wild Code School to anyone around Amsterdam looking to change their career path and get into Web Development. The Curriculum is latest and I am really looking forward to successfully finishing the course to start as a Junior Developer.

    I've just been admitted into the Wild Code School program in London and I must say the admissions process was really smooth! Carolina was a dream, and she radiates positivity. The admissions exercises were difficult, but not too difficult, and the motivational and technical interviews were easy to schedule in and complete. I spoke to Alexis during the technical interview and he was very kind and patient. I haven't started the classes yet, but I can't wait to get started!

    Few months ago I decided that was the rigth time to make a change in my career, I started doing some workshops in the tech area and immediately love it, so I decided that I want to engade in a bootcamp. From my research one that got more my attention was the Wild Code School. I got in touch with Ana, the Lisbon campus manager, which explained me more about the school, one of the things that motivated me the most was the fact that we'll have a final project for a real company. After that the process was really fast.. I just have to follow the applications steps: online code class, the challenge exercise, the technical interview with Alexis and the motivational one with Ana.

    I'm looking forward that the adventure begins.

    When you're first entering Wild Code School, you won't only join a School, but you will belong to a huge community (Wilders).
    Wilders are former and current students / teachers / staff, and always are happy to help / share their feedback.
    Bootcamp format is known as something intense, and to be honest, it is. You have to give from your personal time, and be devoted.
    But WCS(Wild Code School) staff is so generous, benevolent, and kind, that every lesson looks like a game, something fun.
    As a part of Dev Web course, i can't find any drawback to our beloved Teacher, who always take his time to make sure everyone got the point.
    We (dev web students) belong to a particular state at the moment, because of Covid, and we started a "remote" session.

    My main fear, regarding current Covid, is not to find an internship after our course.

    TLDR : WCS is a great school, where you can learn, develop, and upgrade your (in)existant skills. Don't worry even if you have 0 knowledge, teachers (and WCS) will always adapt to your "skill" level, and make sure to give you the chance to become a real working Developer

    A la Wild Code School, on nous enseigne à la fois le métier de développeur, mais aussi à être autonome : on apprend à apprendre ! Cette méthode pédagogique est idéale pour le métier de développeur, et permet de poursuivre sa montée en compétences tout au long de sa carrière. Le rythme est très intense,  et nous force à nous dépasser, à donner le meilleur de nous-même. L’ambiance est très conviviale et bienveillante. La Wild Code School est une  très bonne école que je recommande vivement !

    They take care of their students collectively and individually, granting them knowledge, comfort, help and emotional support.
    They laugh with you, challenge you, encourage and care about you, your integration in the school and your future.
    Even during projects, the trainers do their best to get to know your personality and your strengths, so they can pair you with what they think could be the best companions for these coding adventures.
    I'll be forever glad to my trainers and campus manager.
