GenTech Coding Bootcamp

  • Cost: 19,900
  • Duration: 43 weeks
Locations: Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne
Course Description:

Coder Academy's GenTech Bootcamp is designed for 17-25 year olds who want an accelerated pathway into technology. Whether you want to go straight into a Junior Developer career, or prefer to get a leg up before starting uni, this course was made with you in mind. Think of GenTech as the younger sibling of our highly successful Fast Track bootcamp.

GenTech could be for you if you...
- have recently left school and want a career in technology, but have missed out on training
- are a great problem solver & high achiever, but need to build confidence in 21st century skills
- want a fast track to a great career or to feeling super confident in STEM at university During our time working with schools, we’ve noticed that students aren’t receiving sufficient coding & stem training. (We’re working on it!) This means students like you aren’t quite prepared for computer science, IT, or engineering degrees straight out of school, which leads to high dropout rates - especially for young women.

GenTech was designed as an intensive year-long coding course to help these students build a foundation to succeed in a stem university degree, or if they prefer, to provide access to fantastic career opportunities as a junior developer.

HANDS-ON, ENGAGING LEARNING: Focus on honing your coding skills in a collaborative and inspiring environment with like-minded classmates.

MEET THE EXPERTS: Foster strong industry relationships through coder academy’s network. With access to contacts from top tier tech companies, students develop meaningful connections with expert educators, mentors, guest speakers, and industry partners.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT: Australia has a tight-knit developer community for students to get involved in. Set yourself apart by building valuable experience while you learn. Attend industry excursions, local hackathons, and other tech events.

IN-DEMAND TECH SKILLS: Graduate with the most in-demand, industry relevant set of programming skills in two technology stacks – Ruby on Rails & JavaScript MERN stack (Mongo.db, Express, React, and Node.js).

INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE: Unlike university, colleges, or other bootcamp programs, Coder Academy coordinates a structured one month cadetship in industry. To enhance student learning, a key component of the GenTech program is introducing students to experts from industry and getting them comfortable with what is expected in the workplace. Coder Academy brings in numerous mentors from big tech companies like Atlassian, Gumtree Australia, and Amazon Web Services, and more, as well representatives from startups and agencies. Outside of the classroom, students are encouraged to partake in community tech events like hackathons, Meetups, and excursions.

Unlike most education providers, Coder Academy is passionate about ensuring all of our students gain industry experience during the course of their study. During GenTech, students will partake in a 4-week long cadetship with anywhere between one and four companies in order to build connections, and better understand the demands and opportunities in the workplace. Students are matched with appropriate cadetship providers based on their career aspirations and performance during the bootcamp.

Subjects: CSS, Git, HTML, jQuery, MongoDB, PostgreSQL, Bootstrap, Heroku, Responsive Design, Ruby, User Authentication, Functional Programming, JSON, MVC, Software Testing, Test-Driven Development (TDD), Information Technology, GraphQL, Portfolio Design, Software Architecture, A/B Testing, Software Quality Assurance (SQA), UI Design, Ruby on Rails, React.js, AngularJS, Node.js, Database Design, Express.js, JavaScript, UX

"Overhyped/Expensive/No Job Guarantee/Horrible teachers"

I am a current student at the Coder Academy studying the FLEXTRACK program. The program is seriously overhyped; you can learn most of these concepts on Freecodecamp. The teachers are ok but tend to ramble while teaching. I honestly started the program,... Read More

"Best place to learn coding!"

I just completed the Fast Track Coding Bootcamp and feel my brain is about to burst from all the knowledge crammed into my mind but I can honestly say it was worth it.

After only 5 months of learning, I am already able to easily communicate with other... Read More

It was definitely worth the investment.

"Best decision and an awesome experience"

Undertaking this bootcamp was one of the best decisions of my life, and possibly the funnest six months of my life. It’s hard work and you have to show up day after day and put in some long hours. University was a lot easier. That said, the skills you... Read More

I had great relationships with the teachers here, they all helped me when needed, answered my questions (and looking back there were a lot) and presented the information in a way that is understandable. And if you don’t understand any concepts they will help you until you understand, as long as you ask.

All in all, I have rated this course 5 stars across the board because that is the way I feel about it. And I submitted this review with my name so feel free to look me up if you have any questions about the course.

"You Decide How Well the Experience is Going to Be"

Firstly, this is a coding bootcamp. What it means is that the program is tailored to help accelerate learning of an opinionated, tailored-made curriculum and help you develop a certain skillset.

In order to fully benefit from this program, you will need... Read More

Because the bootcamp helps solve a few problems in building your skillset:
1. It gives you a sense of direction. Some may disagree, but to get started, it is sometimes better to have an opinionated direction, regardless of whether that is the best one for you. It is better to have a focus, instead of reading many opinions and going many directions and ended up at nowhere.
2. It helps form a big picture view of this industry and knowledge base - which will help put learning certain things into context. I remember before the bootcamp, there were times doing some tutorials not knowing why I am doing it even though somehow I know its important. But despite that, when the going gets dry, it was easier to give up not knowing the context which that tutorial fit into my learning roadmap. But the bootcamp will help you with that.
3. The bootcamp provide you with a physical community where you can access to get help, be inspired and be encouraged. To me, half the reason I paid for the bootcamp is because of this. Some may argue that you can get community through meetups etc. But I can guarantee that this is very different. The friends you made will go a long way in supporting you in this journey in the future.

The instructors are generally quite helpful. The curriculum is being improved as time passed. I cannot comment on that because I have not been or heard about other bootcamps. But I supplemented the program curriculum with my own learning. So if there is anything that interest me but not taught by the bootcamp, I just pick those up myself.

To summarise:
- If you are expecting to learn everything well purely from the bootcamp and teachings, the bootcamp is not for you.
- If you are self-driven and expect the bootcamp to supplement your learning, you are going to get the most out of the bootcamp.
- If you are looking for a community to learn together, the bootcamp is for you too.
