There aren't many cons to my experience at the Montana Code School. I loved everything about it: the participants from all walks of life, the instructor whose been developing software for 20+ years and (most importantly) the development of real life skills that have helped me in bounds and bounds. This 12 week immersive course really challenged me to think, and learn a whole new field that I never otherwise would have been able to do if I was trying to learn on my own. The relaxed nature is great, and the agile methodologies that were employed taught us many new approaches to developing and working collaboratively on a project. In addition to that, the students were able to have a say in what we wanted to learn and, thanks to having the top instructors in the state, we were able to...Read more
I was a part of the very first code school cohort. The beginning was disorganized and the I had trouble following the instructors who were also new to teaching. But as the course carried on I became exposed to the tech industry, I learned the latest language, React and also was learned about the latest workplace methodologies, Agile and Lean. Once finishing the course, I had established a support network of fellow coders, employers, and entrepreneurs. I got interviews and completed internships, found my strengths and have excelled. I am very grateful for the experience I had at the Montana Code School. It gave me experience in the startup business and the tools to begin a career.
At the time that I found the Montana Code School, I was looking for a total career change. The code school allowed me to totally submerge myself into web development, without the commitment of returning to a 2 or 4 year program. You are taught the leading industry technologies, along with Agile and Lean programming methodologies.
I successfully learned the essential fundamentals of program development to propel me into the technology sector. This program assists it's students with career placement post graduation via their network of local employers; as well as, providing the proper tools to set yourself up for success with career counseling services.
You also have ample opportunities to attend local networking socials & technology related events in your community. I would hig...Read more
Within 30 days of graduating from Montana Code School, I landed a job working locally in Bozeman on the website of a national retailer.
Montana Code School prepped me for real-life experience in the job market. When I interviewed, the Lead Developer was impressed with my knowledge of the full stack stating, "I surprised you understand what goes into end-to-end of web development. I've known people with 5 years experience that do not have a wholistic understanding of web architecture."
MCS was tough, there is no way around that. There will be days that are frustrating, but once the concept "clicks" and you get to see your work come to fruitition it is extremely rewarding. Working in a project-based, collaborative, fully immersive environment not only accelerated the learning cur...Read more
