I am about halfway through my journey here in bootcamp. It has been a whirlwind! When I first started I did not understand the concept of stacked learning, but as I look back I can see it in action. I may not have really got certain subjects, but the next subject directly relates to it! This allows me to practice what I'm just learning while starting the process of learning the next step. If it sounds hard, it is. I came from a background where I never really had to try hard at school. It came...
Pros
Stacked learning. It is hard, but rewarding when you finally get the topics! Also it is nice to have everything be online right now. I have a desktop computer, and if it was in person I can't imagine being able to buy a laptop just for...
Cons
Failing. You will fail, and it will suck, but you have to keep going. This program really relies on you continuing to try. If you don't have that internal drive and your own "why" you won't make it. Sometimes it is hard to find TA or...

The instructors were friendly and helpful. The program was comprehensive and I feel like I learned everything I needed to be successful as a full-stack JS developer.
Pros
Instructors and other staff were friendly and always available to help. The campus is nice. You will not feel neglected in your studies.
Cons
There are no real cons other than the surrounding area has limited parking.

Code Fellows is indeed a coding bootcamp, but it's a lot more than just a place you go to learn how to write code. The program is robust in that it teaches you as much about coding, the industry, and "how to learn" as can be taught in 6 months! They do a great job of exposing you to different parts of the industry and different paths your career could take you. The community is genuine, supportive, and legitimately interested in your success. If you're anything like me 6 months ago, considering...
Pros
- Instructional staff (JB Tellez, Lena Eivy, Nicholas Carignan, Roger Huba were my teachers and they're fantastic) - Access to TAs and additional support - Career coaching curriculum
Cons
If I had to list one, it'd be the cost (although it's worth it, and you can explore scholarship opportunities)

I had the chance to be taught by great instructors at code fellows who had a solid experience on the late technologies and tools to be a full javascript web developer, it was a 6 months intensive course that really lift me up in my career and helped to give me guidance and encouraged me to get the chance to return back to my old passion which is coding. And now I'm proudly saying that I got the chance to be a software development TA and lots are coming of becoming an instructor or maybe looking...
Pros
The shortage of time which I would have got more solid conceptual wise speaking
Cons
Pushing my limits and getting me out of my comfort zone as well as not having a problem in trying and learning new things by my own

Glad I did it!

Code Fellows is an amazing place to learn software development. The Code Fellows staff takes care of their students, they provide a robust curriculum with tons of TA and instructor support. They were always ready and willing to answer any questions. Code Fellows has a great community of like-minded people that are great to work with and are always helpful. If you are on the edge about doing a bootcamp I saw do it, you will not regret, any bootcamp will be a great experience but in particular...
Pros
Community, curriculum, and the instructors.
Cons
Job Support was great however, I dropped a star for no cover letter support. (should only drop by a quarter star)

Boot Camp Coding

First off I would like to say that boot camp coding is very frightening at first. It can be very scary to take a new path into something that seems on the outside so foreign to you (if you have no coding experience). Now onto Code Fellows, right from the start Code Fellows was very warm and welcoming. I never felt out of place being a new student and everyone I met was there making sure of it. I had amazing support and help all the way through my courses and I wouldn't have changed anything...
Pros
Good instructors. Excellent curriculum. Well staffed. Clean and safe campus.
Cons
Online learning was rocky.

Cybersecurity Sequence Review

What can I say about Code Fellows. I was fortunate enough to given with an opportunity to take both coding side an cybersecurity sequence. Taking the Code Fellows for the second time, I realize how much the tools and knowledge that they provide to the student to be successful after graduating from the program. I want to echo highly on cybersecurity as it is current program that I am taking. The instructor, David Lee, has a passion and drive to teach student to his best of knowledge. He truly...
Pros
- Great amount of knowledge after taking the course. - Instructor willing to help. - Career coaching assignment to help you set a successful career in the future.
Cons
- Amount of hours you put in will definitely reflect at the end. - Would need to get good with dealing with ambiguity.

Hold on

Jump in and be prepared to eat sleep and breathe code every till you finish. Hold on and keep pushing forward, and you will be fine. Its like lifting weights and your trying to push out that last few reps and you feel like you cant do it but you push through the pain and complete it. Be ready to be involved every day class is and the weekends.
Pros
Information like drinking from a fire hose. You will learn alot in a very short amount of time. You will see progress quickly if you apply yourself. They offer tutors and Teacher Assistants in the live online lab so you will get plenty...
Cons
can feel very overwhelming, be ready to do 10 hrs a day on class, review, lecture, and most of that homework.

Whether you are in the middle of a career change or you are starting your career, Code Fellows offers a learning experience that is tailor-made for the current job climate. Being a vocational school allows for constant curriculum change that is best for what is needed most in the industry. Note that they do not guarantee immediate job placement, but the networking is phenomenal and certainly helps with the job search process afterwards.
Pros
Instructors genuinely care about their students and will go out of their way to help them learn the material.
Cons
This comes with the nature of coding bootcamps, but it is intense and it is a grind. Make sure you are able to dedicate your entire day and focus to the work. If that does not seem reasonable, then I recommend doing the night courses,...
