I finished the bootcamp a year ago and here's pros and cons:
You will learn a lot and will have hands on experience with coding
You will build a couple of small apps which will give you a good idea what you're gonna do in future.
In comparison to other bootcamps it's cheaper for the students
There is help available from teachers and staff, not always though
If you really want to be a junior developer and you already coded for a while and built some small apps this course can open doors
If you like to be in IT industry in general, Having done this course increase your chances

If you want to start learning web development and you want to do it fast, Codaisseur is the right choice. Don't expect it to be easy, expect to give 150% of what you got (yeah, you have it) , expect to push your boundaries, to learn a great deal of stuff, to meet interesting people and friends, to have fun and to appreciate Friday beers. The most rewarding thing will be your graduation.
The programe is being improved and changed according to the industry needs, you get to work on individual and team projects, even a real-life project on the last week of the academy and more important, your portofolio. One month and a week after I graduated, I got my first job as a junior backend developer.
Since the first interview at Codaisseur I knew it wouldn't be easy, and it wasn't.
It was intensive, hard and it demanded almost all of my time, but it was definitely the best choice I could've made. Codaisseur staff was always helpful and friendly, teachers master the art of coding, the whole program is well structured and always being improved. By the end of the academy I had quite a few projects to show on my portfolio. I kept coding and working on my own projects and 1 month after I graduated I got a job as a junior front-end developer.
Codaisseur offers a great atmosphere to learn. The bootcamp consists of small classes with like-minded people. You get some time to do projects together which makes you learn from eachother which is a good way to learn. The downside obviously is if you get behind just a small step, there's no real way of clawing back, unless someone is willing to explain everything properly again. The teachers are decent(they know what they're talking about), but could do with a bootcamp in teaching. Then again they're all geeks, so if you ask the right questions you usually get what you want to know. Communication-wise there are some problems. The reader that is used as a guide through the bootcamp could be a bit cleaner. Altogether it was a great experience, but there's lots of space for improvement.
When I first played with the idea of making a career switch from fashion to coding, I never imagined it would be such a smooth process. Don’t get me wrong, the bootcamp was a great challenge for me. But from the very start the team at Codaisseur has been tremendously supportive, to all of us. Their support gave me the confidence to push through and finish the bootcamp (with a bit of sweat and tears and long nights). I gained so much knowledge and experience. I always felt that the team was genuinely wanted me to so succeed. Their involvement in this sense was very valuable to me.
A few months down the line I’m proud to say I’m at the start of my new job in IT, within an organisation I feel very much connected to. Thank you Codaisseur for making this possible!!
If you feel programming could be your new gig, Codaisseur is definitely the fastest way to get there. And by getting there I mean:
- Gain >500 hrs of coding experience
- Learn to build your own web applications from the ground up using the latest frameworks and technologies
- Kickstart your career with hands-on coding experience with real life projects
All in all, it has been a worthwhile 2 months and I feel completely on track for a career as junior web developer now.
When I was looking for coding schools in the Netherlands, one single data point made me go for Codaisseur: not all of the students make it to the end of the 9 weeks. This is unfortunate on one hand because it sucks to be rejected. On the other hand, it means that at the end of the school you'll have accomplished a great deal and you'll be ready to start looking for a job in web development.
So don't make any plans for these 9 weeks, because you'll be at school during the day and you'll be working on assignments during the weekend. You'll be frustrated at times but you'll also get rewarded more and more as soon as things start making sense in your head.
I recommend the school 100% - just don't assume you can make it to the end without fully committing to it ;)

As mentioned, nothing comes easy. This is a bootcamp and if you are not aware of what a bootcamp is, please look it up. Hard work pays off and that is the truth of it. I have had good and bad days but the Codaisseur team has helped me through and through. There is no doubt about the level of this bootcamp and I was one lucky person to have joined a great team, which by the end of the academy had given me the feeling of having a family. Support is always available if you wish it and the job hunt has never been easier. After one month I have already landed a job to which I happily go everyday. Switching to Web-development was one of the best decisions up to this moment.
I've never had to work hard for anything in my education so far, high school and a bachelor degree were easy as could be with only studying the night before an exam. So I was completely unprepared when I suddenly had to work, and work hard for it at Codaisseur. They inform you before hand that it is hard work, but college said the same on my bachelor program. I learned some HTML and CSS before starting the program and that turned out to be a smart decision because they cover both HTML and CSS in one day and then move on. It was exhausting, complicated and they went fast. I spend my days paying attention and practicing and my train trips and nights reading, watching tutorials and practicing some more. I have to admit, I wasn't a natural at this, but my hard work, no social life and dete...Read more
When starting my journey with Codaisseur I didn't emagine I'd learn so much in such short period of time and at the end of the day also gain long life friends.
What I enjoyed the most during the 8 weeks academy were the passionate teachers and the informal good vibe that Codaisseur had to offer.
During the last week of the academy, we had given the opportunity to work on a real world project simulating work procedures with a client. At the end of that week you get the chance to demo the project (and celebrating the end of the course) in front of companies, friends and family.
After finishing the course a lof of job opportunities has been opened up for me. With the help and guidance of coaches (thanks Matt) from Codaisseur I've landed a job with in 6 weeks after ending the course.
This course is probably one of the harder things I have done in my life, but it is well worth it. They teach modern stacks using hands on experiences and best practices. When I started my new life in programming world, people were genuinely impressed that I knew as much as I did as a junior developer. I would absolutely take this course again. Highly recommend.
I took the course and loved it's intense pace and friendly environment. Then I graduated and got a job relatively quickly (in my case I wasn't even looking for one). So it is great for that.
I was one of the first courses (3rd I believe) and I stuck around because I was curious of how the academy grew and the new graduates (also because I kept learning even after I graduated). As someone who looked into the future of the Academy and experienced it firsthand, I saw how they cared and improved very rapidly from course to course, even day to day. Nowadays, they learn a lot more newer and updated things and the style has grown even more efficient and friendly than it was before.
I see a bright future in this academy and I recommend you be part of what learning should be l...Read more
When you start programming for the first time, things are really hard. There's so much information out there, and to not get overwhelmed is really hard.
At Codaisseurs development bootcamp, you get an package that's build for people who are starting. You get all the right information you need at that point in the bootcamp, which give you a clear path and the confidence to create something awesome.
The fact that you're with a group of other people who are working their asses off doing the same thing, is really cool. It's also really helpfull that post-bootcamp, that community of teachers and students is still there to help you out.
I loved my instructors, they know what you're going through and will help you when you get stuck. Not by giving you the answer, but by pushing you in...Read more
So, I had decided to strengthen my existing IT operations competences with some programming skills. As the saying goes: be careful what you wish for! This Codaisseur bootcamp definitely lives up to expectations, if you have experience with fitness bootcamps. This one takes you as far as you can go, making sure you squeeze every last "bit" out of yourself, until you start dreaming about code at the end of the week. Which I did! 👍
Programming is something I've had an interest in for a while, but I found that online learning didn't really get me to where I needed to be (employed!). When I saw the Codaisseur program online, I signed up immediately for the March cohort (after digging around online for any blogs about people's experiences on the course – and, yes, I kept my own blog too at leefreeman.xyz if you want to read in more detail!)
After completing the course, I found it quite easy to set up some interviews a...Read more
This was probably the best decision I ever made. I really enjoyed the boot camp. The teachers are great, and the curriculum includes all the basics and more. It's definitely not easy, but that's also its strength. It gave me a very strong foundation and an introduction to new technologies that are quickly gaining popularity, and then set me free to find my own place. You need to be motivated and willing to put in a lot of time to complete the boot camp. The more you put in, the more you get out of it. In return you get all the tools to become a great developer, and a network to back you up. If you expect to be handed a job at the end, this is not the place for you. But they will help you a lot to find one, and you'll have the freedom to pick the place you want to work at. With their hel...Read more
