Description

Codify Academy is a part-time online coding school for beginners. We’re the only coding bootcamp that is family owned and not funded by outside investors (we actually started with a $25 ad in craigslist). Without investors who are motivated by money we can focus on individual student success.

 

Our classes are for people who want to work their butt off to change their life, not the trust fund kids, not people already making $100k+ that are bored, not the people who think it would just be fun to try coding, that's not who we are. 7 years ago we were just 3 broke guys that needed a leg up and somebody to believe in us.

 

Now it's our chance to believe in you.

    Background: Before joining the bootcamp, I had experience in creating basic websites with HTML and CSS. I took this course hoping that I would learn JavaScript as I failed to understand it via self-study.

    Codify Academy (CA) is a 16-week part time coding bootcamp. They focus on teaching front-end development (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) and is a cheaper option among the many coding bootcamps available. CA’s classes are part hands on and mostly self learning. Basically, how much work and time you put in is what you will get out of this bootcamp, which is essential no matter which bootcamp you take. I recommend learning the basics of HTML/CSS/JavaScript via Codecademy or some other free online course to see if this is something that you are actually intreseted in. Programming can be fun and exciting but at the same time really really frustrating, and if you are not ready for the struggle that comes with learning to code you may have a disappointing experience.

    The curriculum is fast paced, especially since it is a part-time course. 4 weeks HTML and CSS, 1 week Bootstrap (CSS Framework), 1 week jQuery (JavaScript Library), 8 weeks JavaScript, and 1 week Angular (JavaScript Framework). The last week is job prep and graduation. From most of the other classes that I have seen a lot of people stop doing the homework or just stop coming in general. This did not happen in my class so it’s a case by case basis. I think the reason for this is not being prepared for how much work and time you will have to put in on your own.

    The teachers (mentors) are for the most part pretty good. Most of them are previous students who have graduated and some of them have previously or are still working as professional developers. With saying that, the information that is taught in general, is going to be the same no matter who is teaching. The only difference between the mentors is their teaching style.

    Job placement is lower than I expected compared to what was stated when signing up but a lot of that again is mostly due to the effort of the individual student. The front-end development market is very very competative and it’s going to take a lot of grit to keep pushing until you get a job. The awesome thing about that is once you finally get a job… You’re in!

    I applied to about 25 different places. Most of them didn’t reply, a few sent denial emails based off lack of real world experience and received one response that led to an interview. I didn’t get the job unforetunately though sometimes previous Codify graduates who have been hired ask Codify for a few students that would fit a role at there company. This was my situation, I had an interview and received a job as a front-end developer at Streamlabs.

    TLDR: Codify is a great Front-end development bootcamp for the price. If you want to learn more you will have to pay triple the amount of Codify’s cost for a different bootcamp. With Codify you will come out able to start thinking like a programmer but only after you put in the time and effort to get there. Mentors are great and are almost always available to help. If you need a career change Codify is an exellent chocie!

    In a nutshell: great front-end bootcamp if you have personal responsibility and commit to doing the work and studying & learning from the coursework.

    This is a part-time course (1 day a week for 3hrs in class, the rest at home), teaching you the fundamentals of front-end web development, including HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Bootstrap, Vue.js and more. You will come away armed with the experience, tools and knowledge to build functional, responsive modern websites and a complete portfolio of projects to show off to employers.

    The mentors are friendly, very helpful and want to help you succeed. Additionally, the team works to ensure the material being taught is up-to-date, with new videos & guides constantly being created.

    My experience was overall good. I really had to fight to get hired in the bay area especially since I had no previous experience. I know Codify is fairly new and there are some issues that should be addressed like, an equal amount of great instructors(They have a few awesome teachers) and more help with job placement. I choose Codify because it is one of the less-expensive coding schools in the bay area and true you can learn on your own for free, Codify definitely give me the tools and support to land a job.

    I saw Codify Academy’s ad on Facebook and I called the number then scheduled an appointment. I interviewed with Matt and was touched by how down to Earth he is. I felt from the moment I spoke with Matt that these guys were genuinely out to help people step into a new world of coding.

    When I signed up and started Codify I thought I was just going to get some Mentors that just teaches me how to code but I was wrong. Codify offered me a lot more then just that, the Academy offered me a “NETWORK” of people to help me out in anyway I needed.

    I remember I went to one of the open office hours and I was having a hard time with the pre-work. I didn’t know what HTML tags were, didn’t know how CSS worked, Codify gave me a insight of what programming can do. I had sat down with Chris, not only did he helped me out but he also had a personal conversation with me about life. I still remember the conversation like it was yesterday.

    I was in Isaac’s class, he had the ability to include students that felt left out in class. He always had a smile on his face no matter how tough the situation. One of the best traits about Isaac was that he had the ability to draw in his students and make them want to engage in class activities.

    In conclusion Codify Academy has taught me a lot of things about life and about coding. Codify has a huge network of support for its students. It doesn’t matter if you graduated this year, couple years ago, or just getting started, Codify always welcome everyone with open arms. Codify will forever hold a pace in my heart no matter where I go and end up at. I have met a lot of amazing people there and will continue on to do so.

    If you’re hesitate to sign up, don’t be. I would say see Codify for yourself, you can read all the reviews and draw up SOMEONE ELSE EXPERINCE but you won’t really know how you’d feel about it unless you try it out for yourself. I was really nervous and skeptical myself but in the end I’m glad I took that step forward and went to Codify Academy. I encourage who ever is reading this to give it a try.

    Codify Academy is an amazing coding bootcamp. You will learn a lot about Front End development and how to get from point A to point B in just a few months.

    Their Front End program is really straight forward, simple, easy to learn, and great mentors.

    I definitely recommend codify academy for anyone who wants to get into the coding industry. You will learn a lot and be able to absorb different type of languages.

    When I first started out I was really rusty with html and css but I didn’t give up. After the 4th month, I started to realize that I am coding like a real developer like I’ve been doing it for years.

    Thank you Matt & Issac

    Codify Academy is a great place to start learning web development with no prior knowledge or experience. Before enrolling as a student I had some programming experience through college and a little knowledge of JavaScript but wasn’t sure how to apply any of these skills. Codify helped with putting my foot in the door and introducing me to tools that I could learn plus add to my skillset. The first day jumpstarts you right into building your first web page and the classes thereafter guide you along for how to style your page, add functionality, and use best practices. I guarantee if you put the time and the effort into following the class materials, building the projects that are assigned, and dedicating 10-15 hours a week to learning and practicing on your own, you will not only be proficient in front end development but gain a better understanding of how the web works, a problem solving mindset, and the most efficient way of how to go about building web pages and web applications for a variety of projects. Also, if you are ever stuck on something or have a hard time grapsing a certain concept, reach out to any of the mentors, TA’s or former students. They will gladly help you with whatever problem you need to solve, question you have, or guide you along the best path for your project.
