I was part of the Summer 2018 Full Stack Web Dev Bootcamp and really enjoyed the experience. I wasn't sure I'd be able to re-train at this stage in my life (being ancient at the age of 31) but the trainers were very patient and the course really well structured. It was challenging, of course, but I got through it and learnt this entire new skill set in a crazy short amount of time. There was lots of support available throughout the course and probably just as much support now having finished the course months ago. Timing was unfortunate for work placements as there weren't many companies hiring when we graduated but it didn't matter, I was still able to find a job within about 4-5 weeks of completing the course (and the first 2.5 weeks of that I wasn't looking or applying as I was getti...Read more
I would recommend the DevelopMe bootcamp to anyone who is committed to becoming a web developer, and willing to put in a lot of hard work, keep asking questions and really make the most of all the support available here. The course is very intense, even if you have been through all or most of the preparation materials, but it is a brilliant, well-structured way of learning vital skills, and ultimately getting started in the industry.
The syllabus is regularly updated with new technologies based on current trends, and we were taught for 1-2 weeks at a time by a professional developer specialising in a particular area like React Native or GitHub. There is a lot of support available - instructors and teaching assistants are always on hand to answer questions and point you in the right d...Read more
The Coding Fellowship is not just for career changers, it’s also a great opportunity for self-taught developers to update their skills and to keep up with the industry standards. It’s an intense and challenging 12 week bootcamp that requires hard work and full commitment, but at the end you will be rewarded with job interviews and great opportunities to really start your career as a developer. Bristol is full of great tech companies, which makes this bootcamp even better, as DevelopMe is well known and valued in Bristol’s tech scene.
Within 3 months you will learn the most important skills to become a web developer. The content of the bootcamp is well designed and the instructors are just amazing, always available and willing to help you with any questions you might have. As the clas...Read more
I absolutely loved the Develop Me 12 week bootcamp and would recommend it to anyone who is interested in a career as a web developer.
The course was definitely intense (and there were times where my brain felt like it was melting!), but it's such an achievement to learn as much as you do in 12 weeks. I would never have dreamed that I could go from knowing virtually nothing about coding to getting a job as a junior developer the week after the course finished!
I loved having different teachers for each part of the course - this gave us a variety of teaching techniques and exposed us to different insights into the industry. All the teachers were amazing, really passionate about teaching, and created a supportive environment in which to ask questions. Having a teaching assistant as...Read more
The Coding Fellowship was overall challenging, rewarding and incredibly fun. It gave us a broad range of skills that were invaluable for a future in web development.
The course was very well structured and continually updated so that we learntthe most relevant content for going into industry. The modules were one to two weeks each and were taught by very experienced professionals, all of whom were amazingly knowledgeable and always willing to explain anything. The class was small which was a good environment to learn in and as well as the instructor there was always a teaching assistant available to help. It's very apparent that the whole course was very well thought-out as we had weekly quizzes, feedback reviews and assigned a mentor who was always willing to meet up and give any ad...
The Coding Fellowship has more than met my expectations. I’m impressed that we are taught by different instructors each of them with many years experience working with the technology that they are teaching. Not only that but they can all teach as well, which is obviously important that they have the ability to articulate complex concepts to other people. I have found all the instructors very knowledgeable and inspiring.
I also feel that a lot of hard work has gone into the curriculum as it teaches the latest core concepts of the language or tool and you then get a chance to code and put into practise what you have learnt. It is set at the right pace. The curriculum has been tweaked and fine tuned with every cohort, so it is now difficult to suggest any improvements, which is somethin...Read more
If you're looking for a direct route into web development then the Coding Fellowship is definitely for you. The course teaches you the latest web technologies and best practices which you can use to build fantastic projects, all whilst collaborating with like-minded people looking to get the most out of the experience.
The teachers are all industry experts and genuinely care about your learning experience. The people there are amazing and a lot of work is put in to ensure the course content remains up-to-date and relevant. Develop Me keep the cohort size small which means you are well looked after, you are never without support from either your teacher, teaching assistant, mentor or fellow students.
The support does not stop when the course ends, you are matched with a number of...Read more
I am currently one week into my new job that I secured after completeing the 12-week Bootcamp courrse in Bristol with DevelopMe and I couldn't be happier.
Choosing to study on this Bootcamp was the best choice I ever made, and I feel so lucky to have got on it. The people who run DevelopMe_ are really good people, they work hard to get you the best placement possible, and always have your best interests at heart.
The course is definitely very intense, but I loved every week, even when I struggled which was most of the time. We had a different teacher for each subject, which was normally every 1-2 weeks, and they were incredibly intelligent, knowledgeable and accomplished professionals in the industry. I felt very lucky to be getting their expertise and advice each week.

The course was very stimulating and challenging. All the teachers are experts in what they do, approachable and more than willing to help. Oli and Pete, the course directors are very supportive and helpful. I just started my placement two weeks ago and I’m loving the work and excited to continue learning. DevelopMe has been a great experience in my life.
Coming from a Tech Recruitment background I was looking for a way to get into the world of Web Development and coding but with very little idea of how to go about it. The Coding Fellowship provided me with exactly what I was looking for.
As a 34 year old teacher and musician looking for a new direction, the Coding Fellowship was attractive as it promised a focused, streamlined route into the web development industry. Having increasing time commitments, a year long course seemed an impossibility, and unjustifiable without the eventual promise of work and a return on the investment.
If you are willing to put in the time and effort, the DevelopMe_ 12 week coding fellowship is a brilliant entry into the field of web development.
The fellowship provides a technical toolbox that will prepare you for entering the industry. Knowledge and skills relating to programming languages, frameworks, version control, accessibility, CMS’s and responsive web design are developed while working on projects.
Support comes in all forms; form the course instructors and fellow students to your own mentor all of whom kindly offer their guidance at any point night or day!
The real bonus of this course is the opportunity created by DevelopMe_ to interview for a 3 month placement. The interview experience is invaluable and the placement enables you to contextualise the skills and kno...Read more
Having dropped out of uni, not liking my degree, I thought a coding course would be the best option, partly out of interest and partly to find a career direction. Even if you don't have any experience, by the end of the course everyone felt they were confident when it came to programming/coding. I couldn't of wished for a better cohort of teachers and students. This is an intensive course, so be prepared to work, but the results are rewarding. I would definitely recommend developMe to anyone who wants to get into the industry.
If you're looking to get into web development starting from scratch, this is the course for you. It has excellent tuition, a great and varied curriculum, and sets you up with a paid placement at the end of the course to gain that invaluable experience needed to kick start your career. This is a very intensive course, and if considering enrolling you should be prepared to work extremely hard over the 12 week period out get the best out of it.
Overall, this has been a great experience and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to get in to web development.
Oli & Pete have really thought through all the elements of this course to ensure that its members feel supported in their entry to the 'real-world' of web development: the mentoring system; the weekly feedback; the work placement; and the fact that each course tutor was currently working in their chosen field and therefore able to offer genuine insight into contemporary 'pro' tools and tricks, meant that despite the course's relative brevity its effectiveness at preparing its students for a career in web development has felt incredibly strong.
Would thoroughly recommend to anyone looking to move quickly into this field!
If you're interested in becoming a web developer and are ready to work hard this course will suit you perfectly. I came into this course looking for a total career change so I could start working in a new and interesting field. I had zero experience in web development but knew it would be something that would suit me. The course is intense and fast paced but if you focus and put in some hard work you will get a lot out of it. The teaching was delivered by industry experts and was of a high standard. There were plenty of opportunities to ask questions, get advice and we got lots of material to work with. Pete and Oli, the course directors were always there to help and I found that they were incredibly supportive and helpful when I needed a bit more guidance. After three months of intense...Read more
Upon completing the coding fellowship I feel very confident that I made the right decision. The course has delivered everything I wanted and more, All the instructors were very knowledgable, approachable and more than willing to help.
The course directors Oli and Pete know how intense the course can be and regularly check up on you, and make sure you’re heading in the right direction, they’re also constantly looking for feedback which shows they really care about you as a student and the course overall.
The location and studying environment couldn’t be better, with the opportunity to take a time out on the ping pong table when you need switch off for 5 minutes.
Enrolling on the Coding Fellowship course is without a doubt one of the best decisions I have made. I feel confident in approaching new subjects and my problem solving skills have improved drastically. All the tutors are friendly, approachable and highly knowledgeable. I would recommend this course to anyone looking to make a positive change in their life.
