Cons: this is a part-time course, so if you require babying/handholding every step of the way, this may not be the best choice for you. If you are an adult and will take responsibility for your success & education, then you'll have no problems completing the course.
Other than that, and not an actual "con", since this is...Read more
I have a lot of friends who are web developers. Some of them graduated from other boot camps and others taught themselves. One of them went to codify and told me all about their program.
I have a family and couldn't afford any other boot camp. I needed to work to pay rent, which is why i went with codify. I'm so happy i did. I work as a developer now making almost 3 times what I made at my last job.
From what I gather, most boot camps can help you get hired if you put the work in, you just have to find the right one for you. If you work full time, then codify is your best option. They're serious when they say their course never ends. Matt's helping me get my second developer job right now, and I'm aiming for 6 figures!
The codify team is great and if you put in the work you're ...Read more
To start, I am a grad and I was just hired for my first web developer job!!!
I'm super pumped to get started and can't thank the codify team enough. Everyone put in so much time with me I felt like part of a family.
Here's basically how the course works:
1. You prep for class by watching videos and reading (I'd recommend coding a bit too).
2. You attend class and learn to use what you just studied in real world applications. If you don't prep, it's hard to follow along, a mistake I made once.
3. You start applying for jobs when you feel ready, this could be week 1 or week 16, it's up to you. But the mentors will push you to apply earlier which I would recommend now that I've gone through the hiring process. They're not kidding when they say the sooner you apply the soon...Read more
I don't even know where to start, but I will say this, I don't recommend this school to anyone. You can learn the same materials, on Team Treehouse or Udacity for significantly cheaper with a much more organized curriculum, and better career support. I made a mistake for going to this bootcamp. It was a waste of time, money, and effort. The career service is a complete joke. There was none. There's no guidance whatsoever in this department. The materials that you can learn is not at all enough to land a front-end developer position. Maybe, at one point, this school was great, but from my experience, it didn't live up to any promises that were made on their website: "You'll craft your portfolio, resume, cover letter, linkedin. You'll learn how to properly apply and interview with one on ...Read more
Codify provides students with in insufficient material to completely prepare students for a full time developer role. The curriculum never touches on data structures or any algorithms which many junior developer roles require knowledge of and test during technical interviews. The weekly projects given are also too simple and aren't great projects to add to an online portfolio to impress recruiters. Many of the mentors/TA's there have little to no experience as a full time developer. There were many times during my classes where the lead mentor would have to google simple css/js questions asked by students. The job support is also mostly moral as you will not find many connections with real developers through Codify. They suggest using a template to create your online portfolio when you...Read more
My experience was overall good. I really had to fight to get hired in the bay area especially since I had no previous experience. I know Codify is fairly new and there are some issues that should be addressed like, an equal amount of great instructors(They have a few awesome teachers) and more help with job placement. I choose Codify because it is one of the less-expensive coding schools in the bay area and true you can learn on your own for free, Codify definitely give me the tools and support to land a job.
Codify Academy is an amazing coding bootcamp! Their system really works only if you're willing to put in the time to learn. They will help get you there from point A to point B. If you get stuck, they will help you remotely, over the phone, and even in person until you get it. I started out rusty with the basic html and css but toward the end of fourth month, I started coding like I've been doing for years.
Thank you Matt & Issac!
My dive into development was tough to say the least. Like a lot of beginners I struggled with self teaching and was deterred by my lack of a computer science degree. Words couldn't describe my relief at finding Codify Academy, they offered the structure and discipline I was missing and put me on track to becoming the developer/designer I am today. Like many other San Franciscans I lacked the resources and ability to enroll myself in a FT bootcamp in the city. I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that I wanted to be a front end developer but at the time there was no bootcamp that offered exactly what I needed; Until I found Codify Academy. Their part time program and guaranteed financing are what brought me to where I am today.
I was lucky enough to have Brian Jenney as my instructor an...Read more
I absolutely loved my journey with Codify and it helped me reach my goal. I started Codify as a Student and loved it so much that I decided to become a Student Mentor after my course ended.
We got a lot of cool projects to work on , which helped me gain hands on experience and I could showcase all these awesome projects in my portfolio. The classes are very interactive and a lot of fun! Just within a week after my course ended, I had three offer letters. They gave me proper guidance to crack the interviews and also helped me choose the job.
The best part about Codify is that you keep connected even after your course gets over. It's like you become a part of the Codify family. They have so many workshops and 'magic hours' open for current and alumni students which helps one stay upda...
I'm sure we can all agree that we were nervous and unsure about attending a Bootcamp before we got into it but my experience with Codify Academy was nothing short of amazing. I was still in the beginning stages of my C.S classes in college and always knew that I wanted to be a full-time dev but didn't know how to get started. C.A was able to provide me with the direction and support to help me understand what I couldn't on my own. The mentors were great - they created the perfect atmosphere for people who had never been exposed to code which made it easier for everyone to understand the content. Next to the curriculum, I feel the most valuable thing that they taught was the ability to learn something new and being able to apply it to something else. *This is a message to all of those wh...Read more
I just finished this course and the experience has been fantastic. Before I joined Codify I researched different bootcamps and I needed a school that was flexible to my work schedule and Codify delivered. I was offered all the tools needed to succeed. Everything we need is made available to us and me having absolutely no prior coding experience before, to now I feel a whole lot more confident of my abilities and have a plethora of projects finished and my portfolio that is looking very snazzy! I am amazed of what is possible now and it is all thanks to Codify Academy!
Matt has built an incredible company with his brothers, and his ability to teach others (in a positive and engaging fashion) is wonderfully infectious- he gets the best out of his students. Towards the end of our coding Bootcamp, Matt was our career counselor mentor and provided us with invaluable game plans to ensure our job hunt success after the program. Codify Academy feels more like a family than anything else and that’s a testament to the owners’ visions.
I worked hard every single day, constantly pushed my limits on projects, built a portfolio of 10 websites/apps and had interviews by week 14. Life Changing Experience at the Best Bootcamp Price in San Francisco. What are you waiting for?
Codify Academy has been an amazing experience for me. A little about myself when I started the course I was 21 years old working dead end jobs that required little skill. I felt I was doomed to stay at these jobs until I complete my bachelors in business administration which will still take me 5 years from now. I was feeling the need to learn a new skill that will give me a high pay & find something that will challenge me instead of repetitiveness. My search ended when I ran into Codify.
I came to the SF office where the course was going to be taught to meet the instructor & get a general sense of the course & concepts I would be learning. They asked me if I'm up to the task & put in the time to learn what it takes to be a front end web developer. I said "I was ready to grab the bull...Read more
Two years ago I was a student, and twelve weeks in I got a position as a web developer, changing my life and career trajectory in ways I never imagined. The other people who stuck out the course also got jobs and are happily employed as devs in the Bay Area as well. The course is project based and you spend a lot of time making projects at home (think about 15 hours a week or so).
If you like lecture based, theory heavy CS type course work then this is not your bag of skittles (I just made that saying up) but if you're looking to get job ready as a front end dev and are self-motivated then I would totally suggest the course.
I now teach part time (still full time web devving 9-5 M-F) and have seen the school improve their program, create a formal jobs program and dramatically re...Read more
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.
