Codify Academy, also known as CA, claims to be a “Part Time Program that Teaches You How to Become a Front End Developer in 16 Weeks”. But half-way through my time at the program, 6 out 12 of my classmates had dropped out due to the bad experience they were having. By the end of the course, only 4 of the 12 students remained.
With two weeks left to finish the course I decided to withdraw after they offered me and my classmate a “job” as UNPAID TA’s for their incoming classes. I had 2 issues with this.
1. This seems to imply that they do not value their own graduates worth if they do not feel the need to pay them.
2. The quality of of their mentors and TA’s. If I accepted the position, I could have been your TA with no computer science degree and zero teach...
I was in college for Business Administration when I started teaching myself frontend development. I was making progress with my self-learning but kept hitting roadblocks and didn’t have anyone to go to with questions. After reading about Codify Academy online and talking with Matt and Sam via phone calls and Skype, I knew it was what I had been looking for. I packed my bags, moved to San Francisco and haven’t looked back since. I am now a Web Designer/Frontend Developer at Vulcun, an eSports startup in the city. I look forward to going to work every morning because I get to do what I love and see real people use the things I design and build. I would not be where I am today without the ongoing support and guidance I got from Codify Academy.
- Codify is run by three brothers who started out as programmers themselves, so they have great hands-on experience.
- Price-point for course is relatively inexpensive compared to other bootcamps
- All textbooks are included in the price, as well as your first domain/hosting service for a year (where you will showcase your portfolio of sites/apps you build)
- They hold weekday evening workshops every once in a while and will often provide a meal then, as well as snacks (fresh fruit) during regular weekly meetings
- I would really like to give these guys a few more stars but I really can't . To start off, Codify is misleading and tells potential students that they are "ready to be hired" at the end of the 16 weeks. In reality, when applying for positions ...
Codify was the best decision I've made to advance career. After researching different boot camps for a little over a year and calling 5 different camps and asking my long list of questions, Codify stood out as affordable, flexible, and reputable. After attending the first class, Codify blew me away with their teaching style, support, and encouragement. Within a year, I doubled my salary and earned my dream job, working as a front end developer in the gaming industry. Best money I ever spent hands down.
Codify Academy was a great and intense 16 week program. For cheaper than what a semester at your typical college cost, you'll learn top of the line programming skills that will qualify you for multiple well paying front-end developer jobs as well as freelancing for people who need a flexible schedule. Even after graduation, mentors are readily available to help with interview prep and projects to insure your long-term success.
If you're serious about becoming a developer and career advancement, Codify is definitely the place for you.
There are a lot of bootcamps out there that teach web development. I say without hesitation that Codify Academy is among the best out there. They gave me the skills I needed to get a job as a front end web developer. The thing I liked the most was how available the instructors were when I had questions and damn; I had a lot of them. I definitely recommend them if you're looking to gain some coding chops.
They taught me how to code, they helped me get a job, what more can I say? If you're trying to figure out which program to take, make it this one. These guys do it all and have a great time doing it. If you're on the fence, get off and sign up before the next spots are filled.
If you're looking for a coding bootcamp that forces you to be on site and working in groups for 90+ hours/week and/or if your motivation to learn and grow derives from external pressure, then Codify might not be right experience for you.
Codify is all about what you make it. From 15hrs/week (minimum) up to 15hrs/day: you're in control of how intense your learning experience is going to be. I personally spent every minute eating, breathing and sleeping code. I got what i wanted: a job as a software engineer, with no prior coding experience.
The mentors are incredibly nice and cool dudes that really, really care about your future and what your goals are. They also help you out with extra projects you want to work on (i was working on a fashion app). You're not just another student i...Read more
This course was great. The delivered what they promised and much more. When I started I had been trying to teach my self coding for about 2 months. I learned more in the first week than I did the entire 2 months of trying to teach myself. Now I can make full websites from scratch. In terms of the job search they were super helpful. They consulted me after every interview, phone or in person. They critiqued my resume several times, and helped me find all the best avenues to apply on. I now have an awesome job, and am making a pretty penny too. I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn front end development.
