Students are immersed in their learning with daily lectures, pair programming, weekly presentations from full-time instructional staff who are seasoned industry professionals, one-week project sprints, and more. Code Fellows graduates work at Amazon, Microsoft, Zillow, Expedia, XBOX, NIKE, Amazon, Starbucks, Nordstrom, and over 800 other companies.

The modular style of the Code Fellows program allows students to test into the course level that is most appropriate for their current skill level. In addition, the modular class structure allows students to choose the schedule and timing that meets their needs.

Code Fellows believes everyone should have the opportunity to succeed. In reality, many qualified candidates aren’t pursuing careers in a technology-related field because they are discouraged somewhere along the way. That’s why Code Fellows offers scholarships to help individuals who come from underserved and underrepresented backgrounds find rewarding careers in tech.

They are committed to breaking down systemic barriers and ensuring all people are treated with respect and dignity. They are united with their staff, students, alumni, and partners in the fight against systemic racism and injustice.

Code Fellows supports both domestic and international licensing partners through its Powered by Code Fellows program. Through this program they form strategic partnerships in markets all around the globe to help individuals transform their lives through education. Along with vocation-specific, continuously evolving curriculum and teaching materials, they invest in the success of their partners by providing marketing material, training for instructors, guidance and support on promoting, launching, and running courses, and more.

Code Fellows partners are respected organizations in their industry who want to bring tech training to more individuals. Some of them include Oregon Department of Education, Apprenti, CSNP, Luminus Technical University College, and Cayman Enterprise City.

Code Fellows also offers a tutoring program and platform to both students and non-students, technical instructor certification, and corporate training.

Plus, Code Fellows has been certified by both Washington State and Federal Veterans Administrations to accept the GI Bill.

"Professionally enriching, personally transformative!"

If you're brave and willing, these folks will take good care of you and help you discover, then channel your inner software engineer. After you've learned the skills, it's not over! They'll almost hold your hand and teach you how to secure gainful employment in your software area of interest, through every step of the process.

I've done my research and I have not yet encountered a coding school that does it all. They're even pandemic-proof! The level of support and aiding technologies available to students did not diminish catastrophically when COVID-19 hit. These folks pulled it together and were able to continue the same great curriculum and tutoring with few limitations... other schools nearly went out of business!

Got some solid experience and serious work ethic, but feel obsolete? Looking to change your mind, and consequently your life for the better?

Join Code Fellows with a simple phone call and stop delaying your success.

Worth every penny!

As a student who also dealt with a transition to remote learning, the choices made by code fellows to encourage a campus and collaborative, even in a remote environment, has been impressive. The online campus always have student and staff around working on various things and you can always see someone you recognize from another class.

This has been a great experience and I highly value my time here. I would not have chosen any other bootcamp to prepare me for the new tech environment.
