The process to get into the bootcamp is an extensive one that took a month to get through, with simple tech interviews, a pre-course, as well as a front end website you have to complete all before you join the actual bootcamp. I will say these were a... Read More good filter to determine whether you are actually set out to be a software engineer and have the mindset of constant learning under timelines and pressure (I say that but i had a classmate that couldn't access a 2d array in his 4th week of the course)(he dropped out soon after). So is the 3% thing true? I doubt it tbh (This also ties in to my other points later). As for the course itself, its divided into two parts with the first part being a daily learning/exercise driven ciricculum and the second being a project driven one. As for my thoughts on the ciricculum, the teaching style, and finally whether its worth the hefty price tag (they've recently increased it so its really really expensive now): The course itself, while is up to date with recent trends in the tech world, could feel a bit rushed. At the end of the day, you only have 1.5 months to go over a HUGE amount of learning objectives - with front-end frame works, backend frameworks, and data structures - it can be extremely overwheming. If you fall behind in the important bits of this course, you will feel like you are drowning because the course is a learn-by-doing kind of teaching style. You only have lectures for 1 hour AT MOST at the start of the day giving you a brief rundown of the concept, before you have to do the given exercise of the day. While there are instructors to help you, they often just run you through the entire solution to the exercise at the end of day/topic (yes you have help support during the exercise but they only try to point you to the right direction). This sucks sometimes. Becuase, if you come from a non-technical background, getting flooded with minimal teaching material while being thrown into the deep end and then being given the solutions after 2 days mean YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND IT before you move onto the other stuff. Or else, you will fall behind and simply not get your money's worth for the course. So in order for you to maximize learning, it requires 1. you absorb materials easily and quickly 2. PRAY you have good coursemates that can explain you some of the concepts that you might not understand. As for the second half of the course, its quite good. No complaints there. You do three projects and those go on your cv. Job search is also amazing as you have job support right after you graduate. Mireria Soler, she is the GOAT and deserves all the pay rises in the world!!!!!! TLDR: Is it worth it? I got a job within 1 month so I guess it's worth it now? But if you're short on cash, Ima be real, you should skip this one and use the CRAZY AMOUNT of free resources online.

"Very enjoyable, coding is fun and speedrunning your way into the industry through this bootcamp along a dozen others was a great experience."
Coding is very accessible to anyone. There is no shortage of resources online. But learning it in this environment felt definitely right for me personally.

Being able to bounce ideas off the others and always have a second or third brain nearby whenever I'd run into wall made for great learning environment.
Codeworks helped me change my career and i had an amazing experience with the instructors, teaching assistants and working with other students. The career / job search support was also helpful as i was able to get a job as a dev after a couple of weeks....
