Codeup took me from complete coding beginner to developing full stack web apps in 4 months. The network of industry connections you gain access to through the instructors and owners is also invaluable. I was hired as a PHP developer within 3 weeks of graduating from the bootcamp. Highly recommended!
I decided on Codeup because it's less of a time and financial commitment than getting a traditional degree, but you still get the benefit of in-person instruction and 1-on-1 help that you don't get using online tutorials.
I completed the part time front-end bootcamp in July of 2015. While my experience in the part-time course probably differs greatly from the full-time course, the main pro was that the course focuses on professional skills, teaching new technologies and languages that are popular and in-demand. It's invaluable to interact with people working in the field to learn best practices, tricks and expectations once you are out working on your own.
However, a major con is that it's a lot of learning condensed into a very short amount of time, and there's a lot of pressure ...Read more
The main con of attending this program, as with any other program of this type, is the condensed learning period. Learning to code is not easy (if it were, everyone would be doing it), and being pushed to learn so much within such a short period of time can be daunting. However, this brings me to the main pros of the class: the staff and support. At no time did I feel that the staff wasn't 100% dedicated to my success. Whether it was staying late to work with me, answering emails on the weekend or just taking the time to cover a concept several times, the instructors and support staff are there to make sure you succeed. It will be difficult, but you will live and in the end I'm sure you will find it a very rewarding experience. Whether you're changing careers or just trying to learn a v...Read more
Codeup was a great program to push my knowledge to the limits. The instructors are great and willing to help whenever possible. This is defiantly a school that you get what you put into it tho, if your not gonna study and practice the art of programming as taught in Codeup you will not be successful. I started in June and already had a job a week before graduation, if your looking for a start in WebDevelopment this is a great foundation to start.
Codeup was a very different course than what I was used to. Students are encouraged to interrupt with their questions (we were given a rubber duck to throw to get attention from the instructors). It's very fast-paced, and the instructors really enjoy teaching here. Their interest raised mine throughout the months I spent there.
I've attended college, yet I gained more useful information form Codeup in a few months than the years I spent at college. Not just in programming, but job hunting as well. In fact, my employers really liked the fact that I went through a bootcamp, because that was excellent preparation for their training.
Overall, I highly recommend Codeup to anyone interested in learning web development.
I spent a few years as a computer science major, and I have to say that I learned more practical skills in Codeup than I did in school.
The instuctors are very thorough and helpful, and legitimately love their job. And best of all, within days of completion, I was getting interviews.
If you are planning on doing Codeup, and have some coding experience, you might find some of the earlier sections slow. However, the instructors will be more than happy to point you to extra exercises.
10/10, would definitely do again.
I have been told by several Computer Science majors that I learned more in 16 weeks than they did in 2 years of university course work!
I chose Codeup out of all the bootcamps in the country because they felt like an actual school - not a for-profit business - who honestly cared about my education and ability to effectively enter the programming career field. The instructors are incredibly dedicated to their students and are constantly improving the curriculum to cater to their students' and the markets' needs. And everyone involved in the program has such strong connections in the tech community that finding potential employers was incredibly easy; I had 2 job offers within a week of graduating, simply because they knew the program and respected and trusted those involved!

** I attended Codeup in June 2014, the second class ever of the program. I was a junior in college during this time and decided to finish my last year after finishing Codeup. I have now graduated college and now work full-time as a web developer in Austin.**
The instructors, the curriculum, and the overall experience I had in Codeup was simply incredible. This course is expensive, but worth every penny.
If you're afraid of programming, thinking that it may be too hard, you're wrong. Coding is possible for anyone, as the instructors will demonstrate countless ways on ways to learn programming on top of their already-fantastic curriculum and learning process. The curriculum isn't perfect, nor do they claim it is. But all of the instructors are humble and are there whenever you need ...Read more
I will describe Codeup as an awesome experience. The instructors are brilliant, and the flow of the program was really great. There are also great social events in and around the school you can attend. I would highly recommend the program if you are serious about learning and have the discipline to stick through it. For anyone thinking of changing careers, it is one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Graduating Codeup has been life changing and nothing short of amazing! Although, I had a previous small taste of the tech arena, nothing on the same level as what I learned at Codeup. There were days when I struggled and even wondered if I had made the wrong choice with my career switch, I'm so glad that no instructor let me circle the drain and I never gave up! The curriculum, the instructors and support were top notch. The amount I've learned in 4 months is truly mind-blowing and the knowledge was quality, not just quantity. I realize now that approach the web with a different set of eyes and a different mindset. Not only do I view things as a developer, even when I'm not actively trying, my thinking has even undergone an transformation and I approach problems in a more pragmatic mann...Read more
I graduated from the first Codeup class back in May 2014. Like many of my fellow classmates I came in without a background in development, and was not ready for the brain melt that this course required. It was hard but totally worth the stress and hard work. The course consisted of a mix of instructor-led full class sessions, guest speakers, lunch talks, mentoring sessions, a couple of hackathons, after hours study hall (for students that wanted to catch up) and a final capstone project developed in a team of 3-4 people that we presented on graduation day.
Codeup instructors and staff are world-class and were there for us all the time. Since then I've been working as a Web Developer and loved every bit of it. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to start a new career in Web De...
I came to Codeup knowing absolutely zero code, and left so excited to continue learning. They not only teach you the fundamentals of coding, but connect with people who want to hire you. I found a job a week after leaving Codeup to work for an awesome startup. Codeup has an awesome staff that is fully behind you and your success. They have successfully created an awesome learning atmosphere, that creates a great network going into the coding world.
Attending this boot camp was an amazing value for me. The instructors are very passionate and knowledgeable about their subject. The community of Geekdom is an added bonus. Students are able to attend meetups on web development topics to expand their knowledge and network. At the end of the course, the staff is very helpful in finding you a job and give post curriculum advice on where to go next.
Overall, I would highly recommend it to anyone looking to start or change their career in a great industry.
I believe they have found the key to learning web development. Full immersion and knowledgable staff to guide the students down the path of becoming a full stack web developer. The curriculum is broken down perfectly, you learn basic principles right out the gate and that foundation is critical as the course progresses. I can not think of a better location they could have chosen to have Codeup at. The partnership between Geekdom and Codeup only enhances the program and I believe the success of their students proves that.
Before Codeup I was interning with a telecommunications company where I shadowed the lead PHP developer for 7 months. I got exposed to alot of programming and it put me ahead of the game, but I still wasn't confident in my abilities.
So by chance I stumbled upon Codeup on the web and saw that what they had to offer was exactly what I needed. The program is structured so that from day one you are coding and it builds off of core material so you have a solid foundation to learn from. By the end of the 11 weeks we were placed in teams of 3 and within 10 days created a mobile and web app to show off our skills to potential employers. The program was amazing and I along with 95% of my class are enjoying our new jobs as developers. I would and have recommended Codeup to many of my friends,...Read more
I took the LAMP Stack course. 12 weeks not 9. http://www.codeup.com for accurate information. Otherwise:
Worth the expense and time. The instructors are extremely supportive and very deliberate about laying a foundation of understanding before diving too far into specific technologies. The course is well designed with the clear intent of getting you to create full stack applications that will have employers taking you seriously as a candidate for employment. This bootcamp will only get better with time, especially given the dedication and involvement of the instructors.
