|Description||Our unique part-time UX Design bootcamp is 22 weeks long. The first two weeks are an online course that you can attend from anywhere and the last 20 weeks are in-person at our campus in Boulder, Colorado. The in-person classes are held every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 6pm to 9pm and every Saturday from 9am – 5pm. WHY LEARN UX DESIGN From innovative new apps to tech giants, businesses of all kinds and sizes need competent UX designers. As a UX designer your role is to craft amazing experiences for customers, and since UX is so fundamental to the success of any business, these skills are in very high demand! BECOME A PROFESSIONAL UX DESIGNER At CodeCraft School, we believe that UX is the foundation from which you build effective solutions to business problems. Understanding the customer experience will help you and your client make the best decisions for their product or service. Throughout this intensive 22-week bootcamp, you will learn about the entire UX process from a seasoned industry professional. The program covers all the phases of the UX workflow, including user research, user testing, defining problems, solving problems, wireframes, design briefs, prototypes, and mockups. We will explore and gain experience with prototyping tools, such as InVision, Sketch, Axure and others. As you learn you’ll put your new skills to work on a variety of projects that will expand your knowledge, build experience and create a body of work for your portfolio. You’ll graduate from the bootcamp ready to take on a role as a junior UX professional. WHO THIS BOOTCAMP IS FOR UX design can be viewed as the “human” side of the technology. It’s an ideal career path for anyone who wants to be involved in tech, but not as a pure coder. Some key attributes of a great UX designer are empathy, curiosity, problem solving, and being able to communicate complicated concepts clearly to others. This program is perfect for individuals who have existing expertise, professional backgrounds, life experience or a degree that can be a foundation for your new UX design skills. User experience is a practice that borrows from and lend to a variety of other disciplines. For example, if you’re an experienced graphic designer struggling to stay relevant in the job market, adding UX design skills makes you extremely attractive to employers because of the way you can leverage your design/aesthetic experience into your UX design projects. This holds true for coding, product design, psychology and more.|

I recently graduated from the full-time full-stack web development program at CodeCraft. I had selected CodeCraft mainly because it was conveniently located to me and it was a lot less expensive then other bootcamps. I was very new to programing but Erty really did make a huge effort to meat everyone at their individual levels. With that said, I can not stress how important it is to have a good solid understanding of programming before coming into this course. Erty is a great teacher but the course is very fast paced if you are new to coding.
I am so happy with my decision to attend CodeCraft. To be honest I mainly picked this school because it was cheaper, conveniently located, and they taught the MEAN stack. What I did not expect was the exceptional quality of the teachers and staff, and the genuine care they have towards each student's success. Erty was our main instructor and I was really blown away by his talent for teaching. He is so passionate about the coursework and makes the learning experience, as challenging as it can be, fun and exciting. He was always patient and willing to take the time to help, no matter how long it took. The assistant teacher was great as well, and they do about as much as can be done to help prepare and assist you in getting a job after the cohort. I can't say enough good things about my ex...Read more
As with any program or course that lasts only 10 weeks, be prepared to challenged in a BIG way. Erty, the lead instructor, and Sarah, the assistant instructor, do an impeccable job of teaching the important basics of the MEAN stack. They stay after-hours to help get you to a point of understanding material that may not have sunk in during class. Oftentimes, as a student you feel like you are constantly at the firehose doing everything in your power to understand, digest, assimilate, and wrap your head around the curriculum, only to feel you are getting further behind. I don't know how many times I wished for 30 hours in a day to get caught up, take an online course to fortify my knowledge, learn more about was taught in class, etc.
My suggestion is don't apply to this program unless ...Read more
CodeCraft's instructors and staff are excellent and really care about preparing their students to be successful. The only reason the Job Assistance category only got 4 stars is because there was some turnover during our program in those positions, but I have been really please with the services provided now that they found a great replacement.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time at CodeCraft. I got exactly what I wanted out of it, to gain the skills and knowledge to enter the job market as a web developer. The teachers are fantastic. The staff was very involved in making sure my experience was great. Not only did they teach us to code, but they also did a great job of preparing us for the job market. They had HR specialists and recruiters from the Boulder area come in as guest speakers, for practice interviews, and resume workshops. They are still in contact with me about career opportunities and meet-ups. The staff at CodeCraft is always striving to get better and always listens to their students about what they want and need.
My overall experience was phenomenal. There is no comparison between CodeCraft and any other programming course that I've taken. I've been programming for about two years now, and never got the education and experience that CodeCraft provided. Previous classes that I've taken have only taught syntax, and I already knew much of that from free online classes. The school taught me more than just coding, however. I learned how to work on a development team, how to structure code properly, and how to develop a minimal viable product in a short amount of time. The small class size made it very easy for the teachers to help with any questions the rest of the class and I had. The teachers themselves were extremely knowledgeable and could empathize with the problems we were having, not just answ...Read more
I graduated from CodeCraft Part Time program and I highly recommend it. It fit in great with my full time job and even though I wished I had more time outside of class to code, the class times were very informative. I loved the value added items - headshots, resume assistance, etc. And PIZZA. Being the part-time program, we didn't get as much love (i.e. guest speakers) but our instructor made up for it. Dave was awesome.
My time at CodeCraft was a terrific experience. The instructors were top-notch and the curriculum hit on everything needed to be competitive in web development today. The course was agile and up-to-the-second as we took a deep-dive in to Angular 2's latest release-candidate. A premium is placed on learning how to think your way through problems and, as someone who came in with no background in programming, I really appreciated that aspect. They did lack some reference material and cut the time spent on Mongo and databases a tad short but, as evidenced in my own cohort, I'm sure improvements are being planned as I write this. They've also recently hired a career services professional who has already gotten results and will pay large dividends for that program. I'd recommend the 10-wee...Read more
I completed the fourth co-hort of the CodeCraft Full-Stack program. I highly recommend it. Not only do they directly teach the hard skills you need, they teach you how to teach yourself, which is so important in the ever-changing world of technology. It's a great fast-paced curriculum, and they support you in rapid-learning. They are light on documented materials, which they acknowledged, and they improved even during our cohort and I suspect will be up to snuff for the next group. For job assistance, they made a key hire as our program was coming to an end, and started producing results for people.
CodeCraft's part-time full-stack bootcamp was such a great experience. The five month, part-time bootcamp made it possible to maintain a full-time job throughout the course - making a fullstack bootcamp financially possible, while the part-time curriculum made it possible to truly understand the content before moving on. I started the course knowing nothing about programming and graduated with a complete app, build from scratch! Such a great experience, and would definitely recommend it - for both the curriculum and the price!
CodeCraft's 10 week Full Stack Developer Course was invaluable and the staff is amazing. The instructors are gifted in adjusting their teaching styles to accommodate the math-minded to the visually-creative-types. Having a more visual learning style, this was a concern going in to the cohort and I was amazed how our instructor, Erty, was able to easily switch back and forth with his explanations. The instructors and assistants will not give up until you have that *aha* moment providing extra one-on-one time and many many resources. They are very available and encourage students to schedule as much office time as you might need. The program is updated frequently based on the newest technologies released and is customized to each students' interest, skill level and learning styles.
