This was definitely a booster in my professional career. I not only learned how to code, I joined one of the best communities of women interested in tech, with great backgrounds and willing to help you.
The material, challenges, support is always up to date, with relevant and current examples.
Professors work in great companies and are willing to share their knowledge.
I now work in one of the top startups in Barcelona and I am confident that Codeop had a lot to do with that.
I took the course remotely – and even like this, the community feeling they build is impressive. The attention of the teachers, TAs and other students is very personal.
CodeOp has a wonderful multicultural community and a great team willing to guide you from every step.
Having transitioned careers into starting from zero in web development felt challenging, but was well supported in a comfortable environment. The 11-week program bootcamp was intense and educational. Started the day with daily code challenges so you are constantly improving your code and problem/solving skills. Also having lectures, activities and getting some individual guidance towards your interests and career path. Teachers are very adept and patient, making you comfortable about asking questions and making mistakes, even providing one-on-one.
Although the students are widely international they could improve in providing solutions as for students that are non-European related to student visa, accommodation and work.View more
Then, I read my options for payment, and I enrolled in Student Finance as my first option, and I had the impression that it was so great to be true! In this part, I have to say, that is totally true, in fact, during the process, they explained a few times the deal and made sure I understood all the details and what were my responsibilities and benefits. Everything clear as water.
This was a big influence in my decision to take the full-time Bootcamp, so I made my decision and signed for CodeOp in full-time modality (online).
Since the first day, I learned a lot of things, about code and about myself. This journey is super intense, full of knowledge, and rewarding at the same proportion.
I feel grateful to CodeOp because they believed in me and gave me the opportunity to access its program and prove what can I do.
I hope that my testimony helps you, and if you need more information or want to know more about anything, let me know!View more
Given that all students are women, non-binary or trans, a big effort is made to create a safe, inviting space that allows all participants to overcome their misconceptions and/or impostor syndrome.
All in all, a great experience!
I did a part time remote course while also working full time. It was very intense and fast paced as one would expect a bootcamp to be.
I was looking for a suitable training in Full Stack for some time and I chose this specific programme for the curriculum and live classes. I was hoping to transition into tech, and I have found a job as a Front End Developer two months after completing the course.
It exceeded my expectations as I went in feeling a bit suspicious of the bootcamp experience, especially a remote one, but both the instructor and teaching assistant were very knowledgeable and helpful. Additional learning materials, code and all recorded videos are also available after the course (and I have used them to prep for interviews and continue to work on my projects). I was able to cover quite complex topics that were not part of the curriculum, simply because I wanted to learn as much as I can and have received additional advice/support when asked. All other staff members I’ve met were also nice and helpful people.
Career coaching was also provided, and I found it extremely helpful as I had no clue what to do with my LinkedIn profile, CV advice was also good.
I met some awesome people, learned a lot and got a new job so could not be happier with the course.
I did an in person course. Was one of the best experiences ever. The program is very complete. The teachers are great. The support not only in technical issues is what I found the best. Guidance, assistance, a career coach, the instructor, the teaching assistances… everything was a 10/10. I learnt a LOT. But also on campus mode made it easier to learn, in my opinion. Now I also have many new friends.View more
The part-time classes were supposed to be for people that work, but it was very difficult to keep up with everything while working (I only managed because I worked from home due to pandemic. Still, it was extremely difficult).
The worst part was the career opportunities. They promise they will help you find a job but it’s not really true. Maybe it worked before covid (organizing meetups etc). The only thing they do now is to send you some job offers on Slack. In theory, you can get your money back if you don’t find a job in 6 months. Forget about it. The conditions were not clear at all, the career advisor was unprofessional and quite useless. I did what I was expected, I didn’t get the job, and still, I didn’t get the money back.
Actually, the only people that found a job were the ones that didn’t work during bootcamp (and still, it took them much longer than 6 months).
In general, it’s probably better for people that don’t work.
To start with, the instructor was inexperienced and kept another full-time job, which translated into unprepared lectures that were really hard to follow.
The part-time bootcamp was sold to me as a great combination with my full-time job, which, turned into a nightmare as there was no actual time to keep up with the topics. I was able to dedicate the time required and finish the bootcamp due to the pandemic and losing my full-time job.
Before enrolling on this bootcamp I was promised that I will have the support needed to find a job after completion and get the full tuition refunded if I wasn’t hired after 6 months (with no conditions provided). Neither of those things happened. In fact, I was contacted by the career advisor when those 6 months were about to finish. She did not reach to give any career advice, it was clear that she wanted to make sure that I was informed that I wouldn’t get a refund as I did not meet the conditions (those were sent by email on the very last day of the bootcamp, email that went to the spam inbox, instead of having those in the contract, very professional). I couldn’t care less about the money, the most important part for me was that they didn’t show any interest about my job search until that time.
All the promises made at the very beginning was just pure marketing to get me into that bootcamp.
I wouldn’t recommend to anyone CodeOp.
