"Good time, Great Experience"

I was in the part time program while working 40 hours a week. I enjoyed the program but felt that I wasn't pushed as much as I had been in traditional learning environments. If you are person who can easily sit back and watch and not put in the effort... Read More

"A fast gateway to tech in an outdoor lovers' paradise"

I had a great experience at Montana Code School! The dev community in Missoula is welcoming, quirky, and growing fast. For me, it was an ideal place to start a career in tech. My background is in creative writing and small-scale food businesses--nothing... Read More

Pros:
-Located in Missoula, MT. Lots of skiing, biking, hiking, mountaineering, climbing, etc., plus a vibrant arts & culture scene. The tech community here is very quality-of-life/work-life-balance oriented. Low cost of living compared to more urban areas.
-Curriculum is flexible and, to some degree, self-directed. If a student is interested in learning about a particular technology, there's ample opportunity to explore it in-depth in a uniquely supportive environment.
-Networking, job support, and blooming job and social tech community in Missoula, MT.
-Small cohort size and engaged teachers. MTCS provides great peers and instructors.

Cons:
-Located in Missoula, MT. Most job support/networking opportunities are most useful within Montana.
-Curriculum is flexible and, to some degree, self-directed. For students looking for a lot of structure, this might not be the bootcamp.

"Work."

I have mixed, but overall, positive feelings about my MTCS experience. I spent several months preparing for the program, which allowed me to learn at my best during the course. It was great working with like-minded and motivated people towards a common... Read More

Finding a coding job with 3 months of experience is tough. Finding one in small town MT is really tough.
I struggled for months to find employment, applying to basically every company in town. I didn’t feel supported with my hunt at first, but after I reached out, the school was very helpful working with me on ideas and networking. Ultimately, there aren’t many programming jobs in Bozeman, and between MSU and the MTCS, there are a lot of people vying for them. Employers also seem skeptical overall about boot camps. I eventually ‘settled’ for an industry job that doesn’t utilize my coding skills, though the background certainly helps.

My teacher was as good as I could have possibly asked for. He was extremely knowledgeable & patient, and truly cared for his students and their success. He did a fantastic job and I was extremely impressed and have a great level of respect for him.

Ultimately, I learned a set of skills that I am still trying to turn into my career, and did it in a manner that worked for me. I would recommend the course, but only to individuals ready to put in serious work before, during, and after on their personal development, and only with an awareness of the Bozeman job market realities.

"From Noob to sofware developer in 3 months"

When I first started attending the Montana Code School I had a vague idea of what being a software developer intailed and no idea how to write even one line of code. By the end of my three months I was proficient in over 10 different coding languages... Read More

"Great Experience. Set me up for Success."

I attended code school and within a month got a job in the field at a local CMS based firm. Unfortunately MTCS didn't teach any negotiation skills so I wasn't ready when they said "we need a senior developer out of you in 2 weeks." I found another job... Read More

"MTCS gave me the confidence to pursue a career that I had previously felt was out of my reach, and afforded me the opportunity to meet my future employer and other technologists in the community."

Code school is a great way to jump start a new career, maybe even get a job, in just 3 months (or longer for part-time). It's encouraging to make the journey alongside others in the same boat as you. Having a professional available to guide you through... Read More
