Students will participate in a school-based mentoring methodology where only 10% of class time will be used for instruction. Throughout the training, learning will be based on completing assignments.

After going through the application process and getting accepted into Green Fox Academy, I realized that I would not have been a good fit for the program.
I think it is a good fit for many, but certainly not all coders.
The application process began with submitting a resume and answering some questions, as well as choosing what kind of payment option you prefer.
The cheapest one is a prepayment plan that comes with a contract declaring you will work at least six months for one of their partner companies. You are basically guaranteed to get a job from one of them, and you have to take it. If you are really looking for a job, then that could be a good thing, however, you are bound by the contract to accept a job offered by a partner company if it offers at least a certain base s...Read more
I decided to learn at Green Fox Academy because I always wanted to learn programming, but it wasn't so easy by myself, and I already heard that the school is really good. The first 2 months of the education is really hard, it pushes you to your limits, but you can really learn the basics of programming, and the mentors help you understand the concepts. The psychologists help in processing this learning environment also preparing you in soft skills you will need in a developer environment.
The course is really well structured and in the end of the course it gives you really good problem solving skills in programming.
You will meet a lot of people with similar mindset, and you can find really good friends throughout the course who will also inspire you to improve yourself more.
My story started about 1 year ago when decided to change my career. I was looking around the market in Hungary, and I got info from my developer friends (working in big IT companies) about Green Fox: they all heard about this school, got excellent reviews, so finally I made the decision to start this bootcamp. In the beginning it was extremely hard for me to beleive that I would able to be a develeper, and deep dive into programming. At this point after 3 months, starting from level 0 (never ever wrote a line of a program before), I am able to write a webapp, and understand basic concepts in Java. However, it is extremely stressful at be beginning, the positive athmosphere was created by GF staff always let me get over the difficulties. The material provided was extremely wel...
If you choose to study at Green Fox, you will possibly face the best form of yourself. You will learn something (a whole lot actually) new every single day, while stepping over your boundaries again and again. And while doing this, you will most likely enjoy your days as well.
The course itself is well structured. It includes the fundamental knowledge of your chosen programming language, before jumping into more complex problem solving. So even if you start from absolutely 0 (like I did), you still have a high chance to finish the course successfully if you keep focused and work hard every day.
The only reason I put the word 'hopefully' into the title is that at the time this review is written, I'm still an attendant, so I don't know anything about my future employer. But I'll kee...Read more
The Green Fox Academy is one of my best time of my life. The course is not only opens the door to software development, but gets to know yourself much better. Everyday is dynamic and fun. The team really looks after your development, helps in a way so you can learn to learn and change. They are always open and helpful! The course has many trainings with psychologists, where you get to know yourself and others much better. Everyday the mood in the classes are great, inspiring to code and study. You push eachother to learn more, code more, and improve. If you come to the academy you are going to make a lot of new friends, and great experiences. At the end you are going to become a confident coder, who knows how to learn new technologies in a short time alone, and work in a developer en...Read more
I've graduated at GF a year and a half ago. Since then, I'm working as a software engineer and using C++ and Python during my daily work. I'm pretty sure that I'm one of the most thankful GF alumni member, because that's been a dream of mine for long years. The practical knowledge we picked up in 4 months was up to date and gosh, that was a lot. 2 years ago GF was a bit smaller. It was like a family, so I'm especailly thankful to Tojas, Aze, Aniko, Kata, Evelin, Petra and Barbi. They were the ones made us feel home in A66 for 4 months and showed us that learning can be fun and very active at the same time. Thank you Green Fox Academy.
My goal was to get a better understanding about coding. I was not sure in the beginning if I want to get a job in the industry or not but the guys at Green Fox were able to show me how creative and fun programming can be. Exhausting, but very positive experience, highly recommended!
Dear Switch Up,
I am here to make sure this great bootcamp gets the attention what it deserves.
To cut my story short, I ended up choosing Green Fox Academy as my "trainer" academy. The decision has been affected by things like :
- fair prices
- good location
- young but reliable history. What I mean here is few of my developer friends are working in the sector for numerous years now and all of them heared about GFA and said the companies they are working at hiring individuals from GFA as they are well prepaired. Their knowledge regarding the field they chose is reliable and their ability to learn and adept new concepts and enviroments are greater than others as they were focusing on this skill during the training.
- provide knowledge about HOW TO learn new features,instances ...
When I decided I want to be a software developer I din't know where to start. GreenFox guided my first steps in the programming world and taught me all the basics one needs to know to start a coding career. The course is intensive and if you don't handle stress well you should prepare yourself, but it's worth it.
They deliver what they promise, but there might be changes during the course, usually to increase efficiency. They also deliver soft skills trainings that can be valuable when you start to work.
The company is well known and admired among employers.
