The course was super difficult but enrolling was one of the best decisions I have made. I have learned so much and now I'm ready for my career as a developer.
It was an intense 10 weeks of coding. With a lot of hurdles to overcome. Sometimes I feel that we can use a little bit more of tutoring and guidance. But overall the academy provides you with strong enough knowledge base to land a job as developer. I found a job after 2 weeks of graduation, and so far I enjoy working at this company. So, thank you everyone at Codaisseur!
I loved the course and can honestly say I've never learned so much so fast. My one suggestion would be to have a day spent on the command line and maybe some more time explaining set-ups, as this was something I ran into stupid issues with a fair amount. That being said, maybe there isn't a better way to lay this out in the time frame available. Thanks so much!
It's a great experience to pursue the Codaisseur Academy, you learn a lot from the experienced team, and you get to sharpen your skills with the great guidance you need.
It has brought me a lot in terms of realising my own power as a developer. Not only do I now feel comfortable with the technologies we were taught as well as learning other webdev technologies that have a similar structure, but I feel as though I can get into / start any programming project and 'will figure out how to do this with enough Googling' etc (rather than facing a massive wall of 'not knowing what to do next'). Apart from this skills like coding in a team and applying for work have also been really valuable to me as this was my first experience with these things. The reason I gave it 4/5 and not 5/5 is that as a programmer that was more experienced beforehand, I feel like I paid money for some parts that I didn't really need (i.e. the first 2 weeks didn't learn me very much as they really went over the basics and, like, the coaching in the final stage I only needed a bit of in the beginning); and I dunno, just a lot of the other candidates probably got more out of it in terms of improvement because they underwent a much larger skill jump, and could make more use of the coaching that was available).
When I was looking for coding schools in the Netherlands, one single data point made me go for Codaisseur: not all of the students make it to the end of the 9 weeks. This is unfortunate on one hand because it sucks to be rejected. On the other hand, it means that at the end of the school you'll have accomplished a great deal and you'll be ready to start looking for a job in web development. So don't make any plans for these 9 weeks, because you'll be at school during the day and you'll be working on assignments during the weekend. You'll be frustrated at times but you'll also get rewarded more and more as soon as things start making sense in your head. I recommend the school 100% - just don't assume you can make it to the end without fully committing to it ;) PS. I got a good job offer within 30 days from the end of the school.
I really admire the way Codaisseur crew train people in order to attain their dream. I acquired heavy hands on experience and loads of good friends throughout my journey at Codaisseur.
Codaisseur is very hard. But it's times more returning on your time and efforts investment! For less than 5 months I was able to make the professional transition from business to development, meaning that I did went thru academy and found a paid job as a full-stack dev for less than 5 months - INSANE! Codaisseur is the best thing that can happen in your professional, and maybe even more important, in your personal life!
I'm very satisfied with this experience. Although I had working experiences as a developer, I learned and enjoyed a lot of new things for web development and, of course, I met great people. Thank this I made it possible to continue my career in Holland. So, it was totally worth it.
As mentioned, nothing comes easy. This is a bootcamp and if you are not aware of what a bootcamp is, please look it up. Hard work pays off and that is the truth of it. I have had good and bad days but the Codaisseur team has helped me through and through. There is no doubt about the level of this bootcamp and I was one lucky person to have joined a great team, which by the end of the academy had given me the feeling of having a family. Support is always available if you wish it and the job hunt has never been easier. After one month I have already landed a job to which I happily go everyday. Switching to Web-development was one of the best decisions up to this moment.
I am so impressed with your whole team and operation. Not only is the business itself a fantastic model the course was great. The fact that you turned me ( codingSkill = null ) into a developer in 10 short weeks is a true testament to how fantastic you guys really are. Although I have a long way to go and there is always room for improvement I honestly have no constructive feedback for you other than keep doing what your doing. The teams energy is awesome and you can be really proud of what you have achieved.
Good teachers, learned a lot, and helped me find a job. What more to say?
Well structured course, good teaching approach, good teacher. Maybe some fundamental concept is treated too fast (OOP for instance), but generally you learned very important and useful concept requested by the job market.
It was one of the most challenging experiences and all worth it. It was stressful but the people of Codaisseur are very understanding and helpful. I will never forget this experience and O regret nothing. Would do it again in a heartbeat.
Academy delivers what it promises, but some approaches to teaching code seem ineffective to me (homework you expected to do by the example which is too complex for your level). If you don't have programming experience you would definitely benefit from additional materials on react/redux basics
Codaisseur is a very life changing experience, during the weeks I spent at Codaisseur I got to work on very challenging projects and met many interesting and like minded people. Finishing Codaisseur has given me the opportunity to move and start my dream career a in a new country right after graduation.
It has been a great experience and the best way to become a Developer. Codaisseur is full of nice, smart and social people. The bootcamp is intense but it is worth it, even if you do not manage to get through the whole bootcamp, the knowledge you get during those weeks is amazing. I just landed my first job as a Full Stack Developer and I cannot thank enough everyone at Codaissuer for helping me get here.
If you're interested in becoming a developer as quickly as possible and you're willing to put in the effort, you won't find a better opportunity than Codaisseur's web development academy. The curriculum is constantly evolving, the content is high quality and relevant, and the instructors are extremely passionate about teaching. The whole Codaisseur team is knowledgable and supportive, and you'll be joining a growing family of staff and former students, all of which are professional developers.
I absolutely loved my codaisseur experience. I learned so much and challenged myself. Our class was great and the teachers were informative and helpful.
Best experience ever. Always dreamed to become a developer. Codaisseur Academy has made this dream come true. Very educational, interesting and above all great experience.
Codaisseur Academy was an amazing journey. In two crazy months, full of hard work I learned more then I thought I am going to in such a short period of time and with no previous experience. Just one month after finishing the academy I got amazing job opportunity. The program is well structured and team is great and very supportive. If you want to place a job in web development, you should definitely take Codaisseur course since it provides you with enough knowledge to do so in just two months!!
Codaisseur gave me an excellent preparation on some of the most used technologies in the market, also a great first taste for working methodologies and collaborations. In an intensive and immersive way that definitely prepare you for the real world.
I cannot imagine myself being in the position I am in now without Codaisseur!
I learned a lot and made good friends. Group projects were very interesting and prepare you well for a career in the industry. The teachers are all very different and that makes it interesting. You really need to assimilate new things fast because the next day, you will probably go deeper in the subject. It's very important to stay focused and motivated. Especially the first weeks, because this is the base of the rest of the bootcamp. The real-world project was really nice to do as well! I think in the future it would be nice to support graduates even more on the job search, with a real recruitment platform for example. But it was a very good experience! I highly recommend it!
Nice people enjoy every moment at this school. Colleges and tutors are awesome. But I wouldn't recommend it to people with no coding experience. The Bootcamp is very intensive and hard to go through but worth it
Intensive training during a short amount of time. Be prepared and work hard, and you will achieve the unexpectable!
Great well thought boot camp and support afterwards.
The academy has a great balance between getting pulled out of your comfort zone and support. Even though sometimes I felt a little lost and overwhelmed with all the new tech I was learning, at the same time Codaisseur reminded me to rely on my capabilities and be confident to solve any problem.
I always wanted to get my own start-up going so that's when I took a leap into the world of coding by doing some online courses. This was a great first introduction but there was still the challenge of building on what I had already learned and utilise those skills the current job market. That's where Codaisseur came in; at Codaisseur I learned so much by just doing. Furthermore, I was provided access to a great network of start-ups looking for developers and have since landed my first developer job.
Really liked the academy - teachers are competent and ready to answer any question, program is extensive and covers the latest on web development. Without the course I wouldn't be able to achieve and learn so much in such a short time.
After the bootcamp I can say that I learned more than just programming. I learned that with focus, dedication and commitment almost anything is possible! Thank you Codaisseur!
If you want to join Codaisseur get ready for a hard time. But it is definitly worth it, you will learn a whole lot in a short time.
Most challeging and exciting experience! The course is truly very intense and for 10 weeks coding is your only activity. I landed a job in 3 weeks after graduation and I can honestly say that applying to Codaisseur was the best decision!
I've never had to work hard for anything in my education so far, high school and a bachelor degree were easy as could be with only studying the night before an exam. So I was completely unprepared when I suddenly had to work, and work hard for it at Codaisseur. They inform you before hand that it is hard work, but college said the same on my bachelor program. I learned some HTML and CSS before starting the program and that turned out to be a smart decision because they cover both HTML and CSS in one day and then move on. It was exhausting, complicated and they went fast. I spend my days paying attention and practicing and my train trips and nights reading, watching tutorials and practicing some more. I have to admit, I wasn't a natural at this, but my hard work, no social life and determination paid off. After 2 months I graduated and am now a super happy developer. I love it so much, next to my day job, I try to find some time to work on own projects as well. I can build stuff from scratch that didn't exist before I made it. How cool is that!
There are times where I found it super frustrating and tedious, but I did have prior experience. I found the later parts of it invaluable. Especially teamwork and realising I could help more junior developers. I really enjoyed my time here and made wonderful friends.
It was an amazing learning experience, and I met many good people who are now my friends and community. 100% recommend!
Beforehand I never suspected that you could learn so much in such a short amount of time. Everybody you meet is eager to learn as much as they can and it motivates you to keep up and keep going. In a few weeks you feel a very positive group cohesion arise. What it comes down to is that, after Codaisseur, knowing I still have a lot of knowledge to gain, I feel ready to start this journey as a professional Developer.
Apart from a couple of bumps -- like mentioned previously in the feedback -- in general I believe the Code Academy is a very good way to get yourself in the starting blocks of a career as a developer. The curriculum is solid, the teachers are very good, and (although I've only experienced it for a couple of weeks) the support to land you a job is awesome. For me, Codaisseur gave me the crow bar to open up doors at IT companies, for a developer position.
The code academy at Codaisseur was a life changing experience from the beginning. From the codaisseur staff to the team spirit of the mighty 23 as well as intense learning, the whole process was intense and constructive. It has been a strenuous but inspiring ride. Thanks everyone!
The academy was super awesome. The trainers, reader and the projects are amazing! Amazing: - Trainers and the material. - Cool assignments and projects - The location, facility and Mo :-) - The workload -> 5 days + 1 day assignment is reasonable. - The post-graduation period with the 7C's and evaluation meetings. - All motivated students. Some points that could be a bit better: - Spend a bit more time on TypeScript. More and more companies are looking for TypeScript developers. - The Spotify Assignment was never examined, while we spent at least one day working on it. Tip: always give feedback, even if the examinators are busy. - The location, facility and Mo :-) - The workload -> 5 days + 1 day assignment is reasonable. - The post-graduation period with the 7C's and evaluation meetings. - All motivated students.

It was an amazing experience. And I'm more than grateful with you guys. It is amazing to think that I'm currently working on a position that i always wanted. One of the best decision that i have ever made.
I have met amazing people: both Codaisseur team and my fellow students and had an awesome time learning! The 10 weeks were filled with new knowledge and skill, emotions, fun and new challenges ever day. And it all finished with success!
