I expected to learn a lot about web development from Coder Vox. My expectations were exceeded! I felt a little overwhelmed at first not having a lot of experience. When I expressed this to the staff, they were quick to put my mind at ease and help me get on track. Once they discovered that my talents were more geared for Front-End Programming, they tailored the course so that I could be the best Front-End guy I could be.
I chose Coder Vox because of its desire to help anyone who wanted to learn to code and because of the culture there. During my interview while applying to Coder Vox, I found that the people there were very friendly and welcoming, but also had a strong desire to help me succeed.
The environment at Coder Vox was both relaxing and serious. During class, the environment was serious, where people were determined to get work done. During lunch time and breaks, people would just hangout and talk or play video games. It was a place where people could come to learn and get work done, but also have some fun.
I really enjoyed working with the Coder Vox Front-End instructor. The instructors and staff at Coder Vox are very open and helpful. Whenever I had questions or concerns, they would personally address them. I really appreciated the efforts they made to make us all feel comfortable.
Coder Vox also did great at helping me in my job search. I had a great Developer job within a month thanks to the efforts of Coder Vox. The Coder Vox staff helped me to set up my resume in a way that was very attractive to potential Web Development companies. They were able to attract some of the top companies in Austin to come to the bootcamp and let us present our final projects to them. They sought out available openings in whatever area of the country we wanted to go that would be the best for each student’s skill set. By end of my job search, I had 3 offers to consider and at least 3 more that still wanted to interview me. As a student, Coder Vox was able to prepare me technically for my current position. By going to Coder Vox, not only am I ready to start my career, but I was able to land my dream job right off the bat.
Coder Vox was a great ride and I highly recommend them for anyone wanting to pursue a career in Web Development.
