"Best choice I ever made."

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... Read More

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.

This course is perfect for anyone who has looked at some tutorials or challenges online and feels addicted already! It's definitely an advantage to study outside of the normal working hours too. Each week we'd be taught the most up-to-date practices and latest syntax in subjects such as HTML, SASS, JavaScript, PHP, Git, React, Redux and LOTS more. It was definitely the toughest 12 weeks and I've never worked so hard in my life.

But all the hard work paid off, DevelopMe_ set me up interviewing with 5 different companies, and I had a few offers which I had to choose between - I had never been in this position before in my former working life, and although really hard to choose, obviously I was so happy.

Now in my new job, my colleagues and team are so lovely and helpful, really generous with their time, and I feel as though DevelopMe_ has given me a life-long passion for learning.

From the first moment I decided to join this Bootcamp I've had no regrets I would recommend this course to everyone that is interested in getting into the industry!

"Best full-stack development course period."

I was looking for a way to get into web development and after deciding to forgo a three-year Computer Science degree (which would have been a lot more expensive and time-consuming) I decided to go for the DevelopMe full-stack fellowship after attending... Read More

Learning in a relaxed and creative environment of the Paintworks HQ, made the fellowship a breath of fresh air, as there are no stuffy lecture rooms and the class sizes are kept to a smaller, more cohesive groups. This allows for more attention paid to each student group and easier to collaborate and socialise with other students. The Job support has been great and I managed to secure an internship with one of DevelopMe's partner companies. As part of the fellowship, the mentorship programme matches up each student with industry specialists to act as mentors and help with any questions about the world of development and give career advice. The only thing that potential candidates need to be aware of that this is an intensive course and requires a lot of effort and extra reading to make the most of the material. It is recommended to attend one of the taster sessions to see what the course is about and get to know the tutors in person.

The fellowship has definitely been a life-changing experience and I recommend it to anyone looking to make a career- switch into the world of web development!

"A fantastic foot in the door!"

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.

The course covers... Read More

Outside of the classroom we were all paired up with an industry mentor who we were encouraged to meet on a fortnightly basis. These meetups provided me with a further source of learning and a person outside of the classroom to challenge me and help me to understand what I was trying to get out of the course and what I wanted from my future career. Furthermore there are a huge number of social tech meetups in the Bristol area that DevelopMe gives you a list of an encourages you to attend on a weekly basis. These gave us all opportunties to meet likeminded people and write code with others to advance our learning.

Now that I have completed the Coding Fellowship I am about to begin a 3 month work placement with a local tech company. DevelopMe set up interviews for all of us at the end of the course and took us through interview prep before we attended them. This support meant that I was well prepared for the interviews and ended up being offered a place at my number one choice. I would highly recommend the Coding Fellowship for anyone looking to make the move into the world of Web Development. Whilst the course is a substantial investement of both money and time I can honestly say that I would not be where I am today without DevelopMe!

"A springboard into the world of web development"

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,... Read More

The course was highly stimulating and challenging. The Coding Fellowship covers the full stack, with everything from HTML, CSS and Javascript to PHP and MySQL, content management systems such as Wordpress and Drupal and frameworks such as AngularJS and Laravel. The instructors included some of the most clear thinking and smart people I’ve ever encountered, who were able to challenge us conceptually as well as advise us more practically, drawing on their long experience of the industry. It seems that there is a commitment to remaining relevant to the industry as, comparing notes with previous and current students, the content of the course seems to change with each cohort.

Most impressively, the level of support that each of us received was of a quality that I’ve not experienced in education before. The class size was small which meant that the teachers were able to get to know us, individually and as a group, and pitch the content to our needs and strengths. We had weekly one-to-ones with the team and I felt that any feedback I had was welcome, encouraged and taken on board. We were also given industry mentors who were keen to meet and share their experience - a nice touch.

Aside from coding, we were given practice at the daunting world of technical interviews. Following the course, Developme organised four interviews with local companies, all of which I felt well prepared for and it seemed I was well received. I’m now three weeks into my first job in the industry and, although it’s a challenge and there’s a long road to becoming an expert, I feel well prepared and able to tackle the majority of problems put my way. Most importantly, I’m loving the work and excited to continue learning. The Coding Fellowship is without doubt a significant commitment of time, energy and money but is a decision that - I’m pleased to report - is proving to have been an excellent one.

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.

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 knowledge developed on the course. Being able to gain industry experience is undoubtably one of the major highlights of the fellowship.

In all, a fantastic opportunity that I would wholeheartedly recommend to anyone wishing to make a career change.
