I went through Codeup's inaugural Data Science class from Feb-Jun in 2019. I have a couple of key points to take note of: The instructors - As a whole, the instructors have a kind of passion that is different from any other learning environment that I've encountered. They genuinely want to help you get to the answer without just giving it to you. They care about you and how you learn, which can be tough with a very diverse group of students of all age groups. Zach is an absolute phenom and Codeup is lucky to have him. The curriculum - This is a fast-paced course -- as all bootcamps are -- where you'll be given time in class to get the basics, but will be expected practice and learn outside of class. This course touched on most of the major points that are needed for an aspiring Data Scientist, and with the ones not covered, they were at least introduced. Overall, I had a wonderful experience with Codeup - the staff is absolutely fantastic with the little things. They were just as helpful during the final stretch as they were in the admission stage. They really love helping people and it's hard to fake that. If you're looking for a career pivot or just to supplement your current knowledge with something else, Codeup is a great choice. 5/5 stars in my book!
Codeup is the fastest entrance into the tech arena and completing this program will open doors that would be otherwise inaccessible. Their reputation is outstanding because they only take the best. They push you hard because that is how the skills needed for success in this field are acquired, and they guarantee their results because they know their program works. The promises made to me were not only kept, they were exceeded. Choose Codeup if you want a transformational experience and an assured digital future.
Code up has been a great place for me to learn from real experienced people who have shave years off your learning curve.
I graduated from Codeup a year ago today. Allow me to share my thoughts: Prior to becoming a software developer, I was working as a biologist at a local food testing lab. The pay was horrible, the career path was virtually non-existent...it just wasn't a good place to be in any sense. I gained interest in Computer Science, so I started taking a few college classes on the side. But when my financial aid was pulled, I had to consider alternative solutions to get me where I wanted to go. Enter Codeup. FROM THE BEGINNING, the Codeup staff went above and beyond to help me decide if this was a good fit for ME. As a new dad and someone financially struggling, I had concerns. But the Codeup staff stepped up to the plate and helped to walk me through what my time here would look like. At one point, I had a one-hour phone call with the then-VP of Operations to voice my concerns and get my questions answered. And after all was said and done, I decided to take the plunge. I won't lie: this program is difficult. You will be challenged. You will be tested (literally). But you're going to grow, a lot. You will gain a ton of knowledge, and you will be taught valuable skills to help you best utilize that knowledge. Codeup will prepare you to enter the Tech Community as a fully-functioning developer. And if you're transitioning into this industry with practically no relevant experience or background in tech, this is a fantastic option. My one and only hangup: cost. If you're someone that's in a situation similar to mine, the cost of the program was a pain point. However, some things to consider: 1) I was not a veteran/military, so I had to pay out of pocket (they accept GI Bill, which works out spectacularly if you ARE transitioning military); 2) I planned very little regarding financial stability prior to entering the program. Spending a few months to save would have helped tremendously; 3) more money is spent on a formal education that DOESN'T guarantee a job at the conclusion of the program. Codeup has extremely talented people dedicated to helping you find a job, often before you even graduate. THEY KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING, and they're awesome at it. Bottom line: if you're looking to enter the Tech Community as a developer of some kind, Codeup can help get you there. They are huge at setting you up for success, and sometimes that means the application process can be a bit 'extra' to ensure they can do that for you (looking at you, Previous Google Reviewer). If you're coming into the industry with little to no knowledge or experience, Codeup is a great option for you. If you're transitioning out of the military and need an avenue into the industry, Codeup is a great option for you. If you hold a Computer Science degree and want to supplement it with some practical real-world application and need a career jumpstart, Codeup is a great option for you. 'JUST...DO IT' -- Shia LaBeouf
