My experience with NYCDA was mostly positive. I had been studying code on my own, and realized I needed a boost, so I sought out coding bootcamps. Most were extremely cost prohibitive, but NYCDA offered an Income Share Agreement: That is, you only start paying for their service if you find a job that pays you more than $40k/year.
The quality of the instruction was so much higher than I could have imagined. Our teacher was fantastic. He was extremely intelligent, organized, caring and focused. You could tell that he had prepared each lesson thoroughly, which is very important when you are cramming a week worth of learning into a single day. The cohort learned rapidly in a really safe environment. Simultaneously, a success coach would check in with our progress and offer valuable enco...Read more
I attended this course with the motivation of some new opportunities. I met professionally excellent staff there. They were expert, patient, and kind. They didn't just let you what it is. They let you know how to know what it is. It's like they gave a key. With it, you would be able to open variety of doors to new worlds. Thank you, and be greater, NYCDA!
The pros of being a student at New York Code + Design Academy is that you're constantly learning something new everyday. Also a huge plus is that you get to be in a friendly environment where people are willing to help out at any time. The con about being a student is that sometimes when you're trying to learn and things aren't going your way it can be very upsetting and sometimes you feel like you will never grasp it.
NYCDA is an incredible program for first-timers. You start with the very basics and by the end you'll have developed a full-stack application (a few actually). The instructors/TAs that I had were very knowledgable and also very kind/patient. Emily and Clayton were very supportive in regards to job support; they did everything from reviewing linkedin profiles and resumes to bringing in many Philly-based tech people to speak to us once a week. Similar to all bootcamps, you have to show up on day 1 ready to do all the work (and do everything they ask of you! it's for your own good!) but in the end it's worth it. My only cons were we didn't really get into any sort of unit-testing/testing in general, but at the same time 12 weeks is a very short period to squeeze all of this information in!
NYCDA completely changed my life. I've spent over a decade working in bars and catering, barely scraping by, struggling to make rent. Now I'm working in my new career as a developer!
The course was one of the hardest things I've ever done in my life but also the most rewarding. I had Cam Crews as an instructor and he was amazing. He didn't just have us memorize code and spit it back out. He taught us how to learn. Going forward I know I'll never run into a challenge I can't solve because of the way Cam taught us how to attack problems and learn new skills.
I graduated in August and just got my offer in January. The five-month job hunt was longer than I had hoped, but the whole way through it I had my career advisor Nicole Arndt supporting me and helping me find new opportunities. ...Read more
I took this course in the beginning of the year, Dec. 2017 and I wish I hadn't. I'm not kidding, my experience was horrible.
Start off, the teacher Shannon was on vacation the first week so we got Brian Fountain to sub that week, cool, but then when he left and Shannon appeared, it all went down hill.
She was bad, knowledgeable, but a horrible teacher. Not very mature and was over-heard her FIRST day telling the school's admin, "I've never worked with a class so unprepared before." I guess she was expecting a seasoned class.
When confronted she simply blamed the school and left me feeling like a mistake had been made. Still, I carried on, simply because I had too. I already quit my job and made plans to stick it out.
I would like to say things got better, but they didn't....Read more
Hi everyone! I am a front end developer from Russia. Last summer I decided to combine business with pleasure, broaden my knowledge in UI/UX Design while improving my English. I read a lot of reviews about various bootcamps and chose the User Experience/User Interface Intensive at The New York Code + Design Academy. The New York City campus is located in the center of the Financial District, what I regarded as an advantage because it took me only about half an hour to reach the place by metro. Since the very first day, I was pleasantly surprised by the family atmosphere at the school, the friendly attitude of the staff, the comfort and coziness of the area and well-equipped classrooms. Our course instructor, Jimmy Chandler, is a great specialist in Interface design and a wonderful teache...Read more
The time that I spent at NYCDA was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I came to NYCDA in the hopes of switching fields from elementary education to the tech industry, and that change would not have been an option for me without NYCDA. The course was both rigorous and engaging, and the program’s learn-by-doing approach taught both necessary technical content and practical skills such as resourcefulness, logic, and analysis. The instructor was knowledgeable and helpful, and the staff cares about their students. After graduating, the staff has followed up with me regularly, offering job placement assistance. I have already worked a contract position in Quality Assurance, and, because of NYCDA, I can now look forward to a career in an industry that I find interesting, ch...Read more
Before I was web developer I was a vagabond hipster living in Brooklyn, pursuing art and making coffee for a living. It was not as glamorous as it sounds. After being fed up with my constant financial burdens, I pursued coding. I looked at many different bootcamps where I could learn this craft. I chose NYCDA first and foremost for the price. It was several thousand dollars less than other schools which was a huge advantage given my financial situation. Beyond price I found the staff to be personal and caring. They took time to meet with me. They didn't push me into anything I didn't want to do. They were honest with me. I liked that. When I enrolled in the full-time program I learned just how supportive the staff was. They learned each of our names, our qualities, our struggles; they s...Read more
NYCDA's Web Development Intensive is sometimes stressful, often frustrating, and 100% worth it. If your goal is to learn how to code, and to pursue a career in web development/software engineering, I couldn’t recommend NYCDA more highly. The instructors (I had Orlando), and Outcomes Coordinator (Krystal) work hard to put you in position to succeed, and to help you get the most out of yourself and the experience as a whole. Come ready to work, and this program is every bit as good as advertised.
I have taken classes a few other places and NYCDA is the best! I started out with Web 100 and then moved on to the Frontend class as well as Angular. I loved it! Not only did I learn a ton, but they helped me land a job post taking the classes and I'm still working there today. Every class is what you put into it, but not only are the teachers great here, but the staff is attentive, checks in with everyone and makes a point of ensuring that you are getting what you need to be set up for success.
Hi, I'd like to share my experience with NYCDA. I took the Web Intensive program there. It's much more involved than the 96 hours program you refer to. In my opinion, if you're considering a career change, the Intensive is the way to go; however if you only want to be familiar with the "tech side" of things, the Night/Weekend program is quite sufficient.
Regardless of which program you take, NYCDA is just a comfortable place to learn to code. The class size is intimate and the instructors are humorous and friendly, even when I was the 10th people to ask him the same question. Plus the partners there generously share their network that will help you tremendously in the NYC tech scene.
After the program I went on to become a developer and lead developer at different startups in NYC. Ye...
I'm an alum from both the evening courses and intensive. I was in finance before and now I have a full-time developer job with a startup.
The evening WebDev100 course is a great primer for anyone truly new to web development. It's honestly enough education to start building static pages on your own and even a delve into application/software development. If you're a good student and code outside of class (homework and extra credit), then you can actually convert the knowledge into paying skills.
If you want to accelerate your learning then take the WDI as it compresses a year's worth of education into just 3 months. To get the most out of the course you must study hard before/during and take every assignment seriously. I've spoken with other bootcamp alums (GA/FA/FS) and that ...Read more
NYCDA ignited my career in the tech industry. Before coming in i had no experience at all in coding other than two weeks of self teaching myself the basics of the new IOS programming language. I was sure about what I wanted, I wanted to code and I was not going to let anything get in my way.
I searched online for a coding school and came across The New York Code + Design academy's website, after reading the stories of their students and checking out the amazing work that they had done in class I had to chose NYCDA to help me learn coding.
I took the IOS Development course which was for beginners. What I loved most about the class was that it was small, this was great because the teacher would help anyone who needed help. I learned a lot throughout the 8 week course and got every...Read more
Joining the New York Code and Design Academy was one of the best decisions I ever made. I learned more in 16 weeks than I ever thought possible. The instructors, Nicole Bieber and Zach Feldman, showed me how to break down complicated programming concepts, one line at a time. My experience at NYCDA has helped me build a strong foundation for coding and given me the opportunity to meet and build strong relationships with other, like-minded coders. If you’re wondering about whether joining the New York Code & Design Academy is worth it, stop wondering — it is.
