"...Additionally, the Barcelona Code School program is legit. And the price point can't be beat. You will learn the top coding languages to date and once you put those on your resume and LinkedIn you will have recruiters calling you. They teach a really great course, I know this because I compared them with similar bootcamps in Barcelona but also in California. Best of luck!"

"Barcelona Code School has a great curriculum and structure. The teachers are definitely the most incredible assets. They complete each other, allowing you to grow in many ways. You are able to learn in every step of the process, as much as you want, they are there for you, they are very inspiring and supportive. They give you a personalized treatment, respecting your background, your pace and your goals.

The atmosphere is cozy, integrative and fun. The batches have small groups of students which allow us to connect easily, supporting each other and expanding our network. There we are also able to exchange experiences with the ux/ui designers, which is a plus. I had a great time. I am very thankful! Learn JavaScript is not easy at all (at least not for me and my sociological mind! ), but with this guys, this challenging journey can also be fun! Definitely worth it! I highly recommend it!"

"I took the Full Stack JavaScript Bootcamp to understand better what my partners were doing at work. I knew it was going to be a challenge, it's a lot to be taught in such short period, and I wasn't excited about it at all. Happened that through this school I became fond of programming, and now I feel like working with it too. I wish I had done this before.

The course goes very fast, as expected. Most of the time we were doing exercises and that gave me a certain fluency in programming even I was surprised about. Being frustrated sometimes was inevitable so I gave up trying to be good at anything while learning, I just took notes and tried to absorb as much information as possible in that period. Do not think they will explain every single detail, there's no time for that. Somethings just work, I took notes and reviewed it later by myself on my time - every night and weekend. The extra effort definitely paid off, I was complimented in my exercises and even managed to help other classmates.

George and Stefano, my lecturers, have wide experience in teaching international students. All explained in clear English and step by step. Both made the perfect combination for me as a student. Super George has many years of experience to share and Saint Stefano understands well the student's point of view, they could find the best way to help me get over my obstacles and grow.

They keep on updating their material to better fit today's needs. It's an unforgettable experience, amazing people, and the investment pays off itself in no time. I learned enough to be able to start working but also to continue learning by myself. The course definitely reduces the struggle of learning coding."

"The course motto really caught my attention. It seemed a bit too much, but definitely very bold

It was intense, fast and I only noticed how much I had learned in the last week when I was writing the code for my first Mobile App.

I was in the Jan-Mar 2019 Full-stack JavaScript Bootcamp and coming from a completely different background (I'm a bachelor in Sciences with major in Biomedical Sciences) I have to say that it was hard in the beginning. I had to study a lot, including after classes and during the weekends, but it is totally doable. The projects are interesting, there are a lot of exercises to keep on training and the support that they all gave me made a huge difference!

Now, as a Junior Developer they are helping me with all that I need to find an internship/job.

I'm grateful for the awesome job that George, Antonello and Margarita did and continuing doing."

"I attended the bootcamp from January to March 2019. It was a great experience where I learn from experienced people but I also had fun.

Before starting I didn't know how the course would be but it surprised me how much I learn in just 9 weeks.

What motivated me to choose the school was the curriculum they offer with the possibility to learn not only about web apps but also mobile apps.

If you are starting the bootcamp you should know that it is a tough course because you learn a lot in such a short time and you have to work hard doing all the projects and exercises but then you will be happy with all you achieve.

Sometimes when we learn new things I was concerned because it was too much information to work with and I felt like I didn't understand the point but then in the practice time I realised that I got all the concepts and I was able to work with it. Also we had a great support from the teachers.

We attended different activities as a group and we were invited to 4YFN and Mobile Congress which was a huge experience.

George, Antonello and Margarita had done a really good job!"

I attended Barcelona Code School, Aug - Oct 2018 and was very happy with the experience. I had previous programming and Javascript,HTML,CSS experience, and had been trying to teach myself web development. Because of this I had been slightly concerned that these sections would move too slowly for me. However, with the video lectures to supplement the live lectures, I could go at my own speed. I also found that, even though I knew a lot of the material, the 8 hours a day of class was amazing ‘practice, practice, practice’. I felt much more solid afterwards and certainly had some knowledge holes filled in. Having the experienced teachers helped me learn fast. I was new to backend programming and even though there was a lot of material, I felt like I came out at a much more experienced level. There’s still a LOT to know and a lot MORE to learn, but that is the nature of this industry – so get used to it!

I chose Barcelona Code School because they had a focus on REACT and REACT-native. (I live in Barcelona) I wanted to learn these because they are the IN-DEMAND skills right now in Boston (my previous home) – plus I knew they were pretty cool. I had tried to teach myself REACT too, so I had a start, but there’s nothing like having a teacher. The other code camps say they have a one evening special workshop in REACT if people are interested, but how could that be enough? The course is taught all in English and the teachers were very helpful in answering all my questions so that I understood the concepts and techniques.

I had been thinking about code school for many years, but the cost of any code school seemed high. I tried to teach myself, and plodded along, sometimes getting blocked for days on what I knew were stupid problems that could be solved by someone with understanding in 5 seconds. Then this year, I watched some kids graduating from university and realized that they hadn’t tried to ‘teach themselves BIOLOGY’. You could do it, but it would take 100 times longer. Teachers are important! So I finally decided to enroll. I wish I had done code camp 5 years ago. I would have been working all these years making up the tuition cost in a month or 2 (I was in the USA).

Barcelona Code School was perfect for me in that it wasn’t too long and wasn’t too expensive.

Plus, I love having access to the videos and class notes, so I can go back and look things up and review. (Which I needed to do to take lots of job application technical tests)

After the course was done, the school sent my name out to recruiters and I got LOTS of calls. I have had many interviews – and have some good possibilities. I am currently in serious talks with 3 excellent companies.

So, I am very happy with my decision to go to BCS.
