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.

"Highly recommend!"

"Code Fellows changed my life!"

My learning-journey was difficult, but very doable; refining me significantly not only as a developer, but also as a human. Having not always felt "included" I found that Code Fellows 100% lived their mission: "We guide people from all backgrounds to... Read More

The curriculum is designed to get you in and get you set up with lifetime learning processes. After "learning how to learn" in a sense, I have added more languages to my tool belt. I enjoy being assigned tasks where I don't know the answers initially and have to take deep dives to familiarize myself with all the details and find exciting solutions. After 30 years in food service / restaurants and moving into tech, I am thrilled to be loving life and loving my career!

"Code 102 was the beginning of a life changing experience."

I have never had a background in tech. I worked construction, moved on to an aerospace machinist role, and most recently got my CDL and drove truck. I would always tell myself that I would get a "real" job when I figured out what I wanted to do. 14 years... Read More

Again, going in to that one week course I felt anxious, unprepared and assumed I wouldn't pass the final exam. The instructor, Brad, and our class TA, Vij, were so incredible the entire week. Brad presented the information in a way that anyone from any walk of life could grasp. He broke down the information in to easily digestible pieces so that we could actually begin to implement what we were learning right away. It wasn't all theory and lecture. He ensured that the class was an interactive learning environment, allowing everyone to take part in the learning, not simply observe. Both Brad and Vij worked patiently with each student to ensure that the information made sense and that no one fell behind. More than once during that week, they bother stayed late to answer questions and to work through problems we might have had. They would constantly offer encouragement when we were struggling and celebrated with us when we succeeded. It seemed obvious that they genuinely cared about our success, not simply our tuition money. I started this journey to create myself a new life full of anxiety and self doubt. After my experience in 102, I am so excited to tackle the challenges that are ahead. If I had tried to simply test in to 201, I might have been able to google my way to a passing grade, but what I received going through Code 102 was so much more than the knowledge to pass an entrance exam. It might seem like a small victory to some, but for me it was huge. It was the first time that I took a proactive step toward a better life instead of just assuming that it wasn't for me. So thankful for Brad and Vij helping me along on the beginning of my learning journey! If you're curious about a career in tech but you're not sure if you are capable then this course is a must.
