"Opened my eyes to iOS and reconnected me with my programming roots!"

The pace is fast and the work is tiresome but at the end, you truly do feel like you've crammed years worth of learning into just a couple months. The teachers and other staff are always there to help and the co-working space is really helpful, too, and... Read More

Their job placement assistance seems to be quite aggressive, too, and they signed me up with a mentor who's proved very useful for me.

Is highly recommend it!!

"Provisionally recommended!"

Code Fellows was a great fit for me and prepared me really well to enter the web development world, but I would definitely caution that it wouldn't be a fit for everyone. I don't mean to indicate that I am exceptional (because I'm not), but rather to... Read More

"Learned to code. Got a job. Nice."

The tagline on the Code Fellows website reads "Learn to code. Get a job. Guaranteed." and that's exactly what happened for me.

I attended the first iOS Development Accelerator that Code Fellows offered in September/October of 2013 and it was definitely... Read More

From day one you will dive right into the code with excellent instruction and learn by doing. Within the first four weeks I had submitted my first app to the App Store, all the while doing daily homework projects to further grasp Objective-C, Xcode and Cocoa Touch. It's incredible how much happened and how much I learned in such a short amount of time while attending Code Fellows.

After completing the eight-week course I ended up landing my first job in just three weeks. Code Fellows had set me up with a mentor who I met and corresponded with on several occasions. My mentor gave me a ton of insight and tips to succeed and was an extremely valuable resource to have as I went out in search of job. That first job was a short contract assignment but it was a great way to take what I had learned and quickly start applying it in the job world and to help build my resume. After that contract ended I immediately began working as a full time developer for another company and I have been enjoying creating meaningful apps ever since.

I highly recommend Code Fellows to anyone looking to jump into development! It is extremely challenging, exhausting and sometimes overwhelming but the reward is well worth the effort.

"Great opportunity to change your life"

Classes and instructors were awesome. Learned more than I thought possible and cutting edge tech and techniques.
However, help with job placement after graduation was severely lacking. While I feel like it should be up to one's self to secure their own... Read More

"NULL"

I just finished the Code Fellows iOS bootcamp in November 2013.  The program was really interesting.  First of all, it's INTENSE.  It really pushes you.  At a fast pace.  But that's what the real world is like for many of these jobs.  They picked fantastic teachers to lead the class, though, both who come from outside companies and are very successful on their own.  ... Read More

We had guest speakers each week, the teachers are there for 1-on-1 assistance, and the building itself is made available to you 24/7 and is really conducive to getting things done - kitchen, bathrooms, lounge area and it's really close to stores and restaurants... very easy to spend long stretches of time in that area, and really focus on your tasks at hand.  They provide free breakfasts once a week and free collective lunches once a week, too, where everyone in the building co-mingles.  The startup accelerator Tech Stars is in the same building and the people who work at those startups and other companies in the building are really accessible (e.g. Apptentive, MobileDevHQ, BigDoor).

During the "Gold" half of the course, a lot of time is spent on job preparedness, specifically: we're linked up with personal mentors, a VC firm came in to do mock interviews and provide feedback, and several guest speakers talked about subjects ranging from resume construction to the interview process.  Having graduated, Code Fellows sent my resume to their hiring network and I have already gotten many requests for interviews from top-level, internationally-recognized companies.  I'm not in Seattle at the moment so I haven't been able to solidify anything yet, but from my experience so far I do think the program is very good at preparing you for and helping you obtain a programming job.
