The first attempt to enroll in Codecool Romania Bootcamp was last summer. For two months, since being accepted as a student, I asked for a contract almost every two weeks or so but every time they postponed sending one. Just a week before the Bootcamp should have started, they emailed me a copy. The excuse they used for the delay was totally unprofessional: "We did not receive the contract from the law firm". I received this excuse on the 9th of September, the day that should have been the...
Pros
Smooth application experience. No upfront tax. The 3 months are almost free.

My experience is, that codecool is a very supportive community where everyone can find their place, there field where they would like to work. For me especially, I thought only development exists but nothing else in IT. Then I discovered Consulting, where development skills are also needed, but social skills are also important. So Codecool helped me to find the best job opportunity for my personality, I am really grateful for Codecool.
Pros
- they helped me to find the suitable job - good community - learned how to work in Agile - learned how to work as a team
Cons
- I was in the whole year program , which was exhausting financially because I had no time to work, but it was my choice, just it is important to know, that you have to prepare enough money for almost a whole year. But that’s it.

Best choice of my life.

The overall experience of CodeCool was outstanding. Both the curriculum, the sections, the environment and the mentors were very helpful and efficient.
Pros
Starting from the beginning, teaches the from the basics. It pushes you to learn by yourself and be an efficient learner. Opens your mind. There is a very high focus on soft-skills. Workshops and feedbacks help the students to become an...
Cons
When I did the school there were only full-time 12 month long version what needed 100% present from the students. It was quite difficult to complete with a full time job. But there is a weekend course now, so it shouldn't be a problem.

Very good

The only thing this bootcamp can do for you is motivation. Everything you can learn here you can also learn online for free. It won't even be harder. Hugely overpriced. Lots of people from my year didn't receive any job offer after the course. Many companies won't consider bootcamp candidates and I'd highly recommend enlisting in IT Uni and saying you learned yourself. They used to be free if they didn't find you a job after the course but its no longer the case... I wonder why :P
Pros
-Helpful mentors might provide help quicker then YT videos -Will motivate you if that's what you like (think of it as gym card you will do it cause you paid for it) -Yeah... Still better then learning how to code at most Uni. And a lot...
Cons
-You could easily learn all the things from here from free online sources -Will probably not find a job for you -It will not be easy to find job after bootcamp -Lots of internal administration problems -12 months is estimated length of the...

Not worth the money just like any programming school - online learning for the win

Codecool was a good start to programming for me. Most mentors are really fine teachers and some of them are passionate about teaching. The course in Poland is hugely overpriced. It used to be free if they couldn't find job for you after the course but it's not the case anymore. Most people had to look for the job themselves after finishing the course. Codecool didn't care much for finding us a job even then can't imagine it's any different now. Any programming school is barely even worth...
Pros
Will give you motivation to learn. Mentors can help you understand things you could have trouble learning on your own.
Cons
You can literally learn all this things online. Hugely overpriced. Won't help you much with finding a job. Some companies don't like hiring people from boot camps.

From the first day I have really enjoyed learning in Codecool. We study what we use in practice with the most modern learning methodologies. The parters of the company recommend the technologies what the students should learn, so they can easily find a job.
Pros
We could learn about many relevant technologies and also we could practice them in an Agile environment. Soft skills workshops are held as well to improve our ability to work in teams.
Cons
My life is all about coding now, but I'm not sure if this is a con. :)

Codecool is a coding bootcamp where they don't really teach you. They grant you an english curriculum where you can find small tasks or big tasks either for every week. You have to do this alone or in teams. You have to go to school every 2nd week. So there are A and B weeks. A week, called Self-instructed week is a week when you're at home and you get familiar with new technology, tool or language. Then come the second week, the Teamwork week where you practise the previous week's knowledge in...
Pros
- Get familiar with every important technology and language. - Flexible. You have to be in school from 9 to 3 but if you want, you can also sleep there. - During covid. Many online health sessions, virtual pub sessions, and other...
Cons
- In the beginning, you may meet people who has nothing to do with programming but they will fall out.

My overall experience was good. I had both hard times and good times. I could manage to go atleast 10 interviews BUT they were all different from each others in tech stack. I studied c# but i went for a lot of java, and full stack interviews because there wasnt any c# jobs... so it was awful at the end.
Pros
My mentors were really friendly and helpful. If you don't know where to start your carreer path, it is a good alternative to start it here.
Cons
The partners werent really interested for me. So it was really hard to get a job. I think for this amount of money, you could go to a company for free, or hire a mentor.

Joining Codecool was best decision in my carrier

Before I joined Codecool I looked the market and checked all available options. I knew I was very demanding and looked for something that could keep me stimulated and motivated. After 4 month of search I decided to join Codecool to find that all my needs are meet.
Pros
They teach you how to learn yourself - with this knowledge you can never stop developing your skills even after finishing course, They have a modern mentoring system - you are encouraged to experiment and guided more than lectured, They...

It requires effort and initiative - if you prefer sit-and-listen approach they will not fit your requirements, It requires dedication - I am one of few students who were able to keep a full-time job during this school and it required...

Codecool Questions

Who started Career Karma?

Created 2 years ago

So Career Karma was started by Artur, Ruben and myself out of our own struggles career transitioning into Tech. Our journey took place in 2014-2015 and if it wasn't for the three of us doing it together we wouldn't be here today. Once we got our high paying jobs in tech and I was working as a Software Engineer ... I say an incredible opportunity for others like me who were trying to learn how to code on their own but failing to complete their transition. Three years into us...

How do you successfully pass the technical interviews for Flatiron and Hack Reactor (Software Engineering and Cyber Analytics) ?

Created 1 year ago

Good question. They are very different so I would recommend doing prep courses for both to try it out. However, then decide which specialty you're most interested in and go for those technical interviews. In preparation, definitely complete the prep course. The next steps for you should be to ask the admissions officer about the type of questions that are going to be on the technical interviews. What resources do they recommend you review to get accepted? What they think will...
