Are you ready to focus 11 hours a day, 6 days a week, for 12 weeks? This course is the heart of the Codeworks system, and is mainly divided in two sections. The pre-course (remote, 8 weeks, part-time), and the main course (on-site, 12 weeks full-time).
For the main course, during the first half you concentrate on theory and advanced programming. The second part is dedicated instead to applying all you’ve learned, and use it to build complete products.

I came to Codeworks to learn coding and apply it in future start-up development, but I didn't expect anything that happened in the following 3 months. The program is incredibly intense and makes you give the best of yourself every single day, it requires perseverance and self-discipline to go beyond your personal limits, to go out of your comfort zone and to reach new levels. Codeworks is not an easy course, but its one of the most rewarding things I have ever done. At the end of the 3 months you realize that you are doing thing that you were even afraid to imagine before starting and that you are fully able to implement amazing projects yourself. Another very relevant thing that is given to you by Codeworks is the ability to get used to fast and intense learning, which gives you the capacity to pick up quickly any new tool, framework and even programming language after the course itself. Apart from the content of the course it has two other components that make your experience in the bootcamp so outstanding: the people and the atmosphere. The people who you meet at Codeworks are exceptional professionals, developers, entrepreneurs and leaders. They inspire you to go forward every day and most importantly thay become your true friends who support you and make you laugh even on the toughest day when every line of code that you write breaks. They are also the ones who make the atmosphere in the bootcamp so friendly, informal and comfortable, that makes you want to stay longer and enjoy all the time spent at their amazing office. Long story short: it is an incredible experience that I would recommend to anyone who wants to not only learn coding and become a full stack developer capable of almost anything, but also to make friends, achieve new horizons and live 3 amazing life changing months in Barcelona. Codeworks is the place to be!
I was on my first year of University studying Computer Science, working part time and already with another degree, when I decided that I didn’t want to spend the next 4-5 years studying and working in some job that I wasn’t enjoying. I found Codeworks and it is exactly what I needed, a 3 month immersive course where I could learn how to code properly and convert ideas that I had into actual projects.
As most of the students before taking the big decision I was skeptic about joining Codeworks. Now I can say I was very lucky that I did it. Not only changed my professional career but also I met new friends, and granted me access to a vast network of tech companies and possibilities. Right now I'm working remotely as Software developer for a company which was the goal when I started. I also have to say that it's not easy, you have to give your 100% and more during 3 months. Leave everything behind and prepare for being pushed as never before. School is monday to saturday from 9 to 21h, but most of us stayed longer or arrived earlier, there are so many things to do that time goes faster than any of us can imagine. Also the instructors where amazing, and very professional, years of experience to our service. If I have to say what was the best, I'd say that working in a professional environment, developing real projects using the tools that you'll use in a your next job. So don't doubt it, apply and work hard to get in!!
Codeworks is a life changing experience. It’s not only a course, it’s a family and a network of gifted/talented people. The bootcamp is very demanding and helps you reach limits of yourself you couldn’t imagine. You can discuss with the teachers about everything… like some kind of app you want to create and they can guide you. Arol is the mentor that you might spend a lot of time with and probably one of the best programmer you’ll meet in your life. We had so many great time and his knowledge is kinda infinite :D Weeks before the end of the bootcamp they start helping you on finding a job (if you are not willing to create your startup, if so they also help you that way). To be honest right now most of the students found something before the end of the bootcamp, and the max right now was 2 weeks after the end. Your teammates are also very talented people… Before the bootcamp : make sure to do the pre-course with attention, it doesn’t get easier after lol. It will help you a lot during the algorithm part at the beginning. During the bootcamp : just make sure to finish every sprint on time, follow the planning and be sure to finish the task before sleeping. You still have sunday to catch up but every delay can be risky. Invest yourself 200%! Ask as many questions as you want to the instructors, sometimes they won’t answer you because they want you to find by yourself, and its the best way to learn, the answer will be printed in your mind if you find it by yourself. About the concurrence i’ll be honest : all the other bootcamps are just a way to discover programming, at the end you dont even know the other possible frameworks etc. I’m pretty sure students in other bootcamp in barcelona at the end of the course won’t even be able to do the pre-course for codeworks on their own, and that’s true for a lot of other bootcamps in europe. Only in the junior part (6 first weeks) we learn how to use : node.js/express/koa/polymer/angular/react/meteor and a bit of python/c++/ruby, for the databases : redis/mongodb/mongoose/mySQLand thats just the headlines. You learn them and after you are able to choose which one fits you the most according to your project. During the senior part (6 last weeks), you apply what you've learnt and you create 3 apps ! The last one is a complete MVP with all your team. I learnt how to pair program thanks to codeworks and is very powerful experience ( and thats how they do in the best IT companies such as twitter etc). My choice was either Codeworks or HackReactor, both of them makes you a king if you invest yourself and your energy at 200% during 3months. I choosed codeworks because i wanted to be in a small team (not a big size bootcamp), be able to ask questions as much as i want, i also wanted to be able to come back in my hometown during the week break (week 7) and because the lifestyle in Barcelona is completely booming! Codeworks is worth the invest !
Before applying to Codeworks I interviewed five different bootcamps. Yes, I interviewed them, five of them. When provided with my set list of questions Alessandro (co-founder and CEO) replied with all the right answers. The experience I was looking for was to learn, work, and live as a Software Engineer/Developer. Codeworks delivered! I can now confidently say that I am a Software Developer.
Background: I'm 27 studied Finance, International Business, Entrepreneurship at Santa Clara University in Silicon Valley. My interest in coding began as I worked in international trade, an industry reliant on government legacy systems which has been slow to adapt new technologies. Codeworks offered a very intensive curriculum that was very practical in nature. By the end of the course, we completed building 3 applications & I fell like I have developed a complete toolkit to be able to progress my knowledge outside of the course. Prior to attending the course, I worked through online tutorials and coding challenges, but it was the course and mentorship that tied everything together so I could actually build something.
