"Summary: great front-end bootcamp for those who are willing to take personal responsibility and commit to do the projects, and study!"

Pros: supporting, attentive & helpful mentors; always-updated study material, videos, curriculum, etc; arm you with the tools to succeed as a Front-End Web Developer. You'll learn responsive design, JavaScript, HTML & CSS, Boostrap, Vue.js among other... Read More

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 front-end only, there isn't any back-end stuff taught, s ono MEAN stack, no Python & PHP, no Rails, etc. This is *NOT* something to hold against them since they never promise or claim to teach these techs, just something to be aware of going in in case you are more interested in a back-end or full-stack role. Note: there are more front-end roles available in the marketplace so this is a fantastic bootcamp to choose, since you can always learn the other stuff later.

"The push I needed"

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... Read More

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 going to get hired!

"Hired After graduating From Codify"

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:... Read More

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 sooner you'll get hired.

4. They help you put together your portfolio, resume, cover letter, and all your online stuff (linkedin, github, codepen, etc.).

5. Then you start applying. If you don't get interviews they help figure out why. Once you start getting interviews, they help with interview prep. For me, they helped me with phone interviewing and in person interviewing both technical and not technical. If you're really worried about the interview process I know other students who paid for other professional help which worked well for them too. They basically doubled down on the professional interview help. If you have the money, why not right?

6. You get hired and celebrate like me!!!

That list looks easy but like anything worthwhile, it's definitely hard. Don't expect to just pick up JavaScript like learning a different skill. You need to put in at least 10 hours a week. If you don't you'll fall behind. I know students who didn't put in the time for whatever reason, and they're still attending office hours to try and catch up after graduation. It's great that codify offers that and I applaud them for that. But we all have 10 hours a week to do this, you just need to do it.

If you read this and end up going to codify you've made the right choice :)

"Don't go here"

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.... Read More

Here are my recommendations for you:
- Go through and actually complete HTML, CSS and Javascript on Codecademy first to get your basics and foundations
- Once you are done with Codecademy, check out Treehouse Techdegree or Udacity. They are only $200/month. 3 months = $600. Trust me. Their curriculums are way much more organized than this school. They have mentor support too! I wish that I knew about these two options before.
- A lot of bootcamps out there offer "Council On Integrity In Results Reporting", don't apply to any bootcamps unless they can provide you this report. Codify can't get you hired. Lots of people who graduated before me or my other classmates can't get any job after they are done.
- If you really want to go through a bootcamp, check out those tuition-guarantee bootcamps because they can get results! (Flatiron School, Thinkful, Bloc, Hackbright, etc)

"I'm a developer!"

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... Read More

"Amazing experience, highly recommend!"

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... Read More

I was lucky enough to have Brian Jenney as my instructor and he was fantastic. It was great to be taught by someone who had been exactly where I was, he understood the struggle of becoming a developer from the ground up (without the aid of a computer science background) and he was able to break down concepts for us in a truly digestible way. Were there a lot of drop outs in my class? ABSOLUTELY. We went from a class of 15 or so to maybe 3 or 4 people at the end. But that is a testament to the incredible challenge becoming a developer is and not to the integrity of the program. Coding is hard as hell! If anyone could it, everyone would. The curriculum they offer isn't necessarily about originality or a revolutionary way to learn code, that's just silly, they offer the necessary structure it takes to utilize online resources. And that's what being a developer is all about, knowing how to take the infinite amount of knowledge available on the web and applying it to your own stack.

It's tough from start to finish but you absolutely get out of it what you put in. I started my journey with Codify in October 2016, graduated February 2017, moved to New York City March 2017, and thanks to the skills I took away from Codify Academy, was employed by the fist Week of April '17. I now work as a UI/UX Engineer in Manhattan and couldn't describe how excited I am for the future of my career - all thanks to the amazing program that the Brody brothers put together. 10/10 would suggest.
