The demand for software developers has never been greater

Now is your opportunity to become one. It's all about having a voice in the digital age.

Change your career. Become a Programmer.

But don't expect this to be your typical college style classroom - that would be uninteresting and unproductive. You can expect lectures, challenges, projects, collaboration with other students and instructors, guest speakers, and a whole lot more. It's the way learning should be - interactive and interesting.

Build creative and interesting things that people can use.

Why just consume technology when you can create it? We will show you how to harness the power of code to build products that were once only ideas.

Learning programming does not need to be scary.

Learning from reading books and watching videos is great, but wouldn't it be nice to have a mentor who could answer your difficult questions? We want to empower our students and give them the skills that employers are looking for the most.

Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions we have received.

  • What is Coder Vox?

    Coder Vox is a 12 week immersive programming bootcamp located in Austin, TX. The course teaches PHP, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Git, and other tools used by professional web developers.

  • Who should apply to Coder Vox?

    Coder Vox was created with two groups of people in mind. The first group consists of people who want to become employed as software developers, but may not necessarily have the technical knowledge to do so. The second group consists of people who want to become tech entrepreneurs, and want to be able to build prototypes of their ideas. In both cases, Coder Vox empowers their students by teaching them programming fundamentals that are essential in becoming a proficient developer.

    You should also be someone that is hard working, enjoys problem solving, and likes to build things. You don't have to be a genius, but you should be the type of person who doesn't gives up easily when you become frustrated. We're here to help you learn, but we also want you to be motivated and passionate as well.

  • What is the cost of the program? What kind of financial assistance do you provide?

    The tuition cost of the 12 week full time bootcamp is $9,980.

    Coder Vox is partnered with Earnest to help students who need help paying for their tuition.

  • I don't have much experience with programming. Should I apply?

    Absolutely! If you are someone who is committed and has dabbled enough to know that you really enjoy programming, you'll do fine. We're here to help you.

    If you are new to web development, check out this presentation we gave at a recent meet up, which is titled "How Web Apps Work." It will give you an overview on how websites and web applications are created:

  • What is PHP?

    PHP is a programming language used for web development. It's also the language that you will be spending roughly 75% of your time learning when you join Coder Vox. Fun fact: in 2004, Mark Zuckerberg used PHP to create Facebook when he was in his dorm room. Applying for a software engineering position at Facebook requires knowledge of PHP.

  • There are tons of books, videos, and tutorials that teach programming. What makes Coder Vox different?

    There is plenty of material that teaches the mechanics on how to write code. However, there is a difference between writing good code and bad code, and being a self-taught programmer means you won't receive feedback on what you're doing. It's also easy to get frustrated when you are stuck on a problem, and become distracted and give up.

    At Coder Vox, you'll be able to raise your hand and have your questions answered by an experienced software developer. You will also be surrounding yourself with other smart and ambitious classmates who will work with you and help keep you accountable.

    Also, we recommend you check out our main instructors Quora post: What are the best ways for a complete beginner to learn programming?

  • Where is Coder Vox located?

    The Coder Vox office is located at 8500 Shoal Creek Blvd #201b Austin, TX 78757.

    We are minutes away from the Domain and the Arboretum in an office park with plenty of free parking. There are also lots of amazing restaurants and coffee shops nearby, such as Hopdoddy, Korea House Restaurant & Sushi Bar, Epoch Coffee, and Madam Mam’s. You won't have any trouble finding a good place to grab lunch on your break.

  • What does the Coder Vox office look like?

    Check out these photos. We did our best to create a fun, relaxed environment that is conducive to learning. We also provide a fully stocked fridge for our students!

  • What will I learn at Coder Vox?

    You will learn the programming languages, tools and technologies that are frequently used in modern web applications. We want you to be able to build products that are meaningful and creative.

    In addition to raw technical skills, we will also teach you how to learn and think like a programmer.

  • After I apply, what are the next steps?

    We will email you and set up a time to speak with you (either in person or on the phone) regarding your goals, expectations, and level of experience. We'll also answer any questions you have regarding the program. We want you to get to know us as much as we want to know you.

  • Is it really possible to become a programmer in 3 months?

    Remember, you're going to be putting in a lot of hours into learning during those 3 months. Will you become good enough to get a job? Certainly, that's our goal. Will you be an expert? No. Becoming a skilled software developer takes years of experience, much in the same way it takes years of practice to become skilled in playing the piano or basketball. However, with three months of hard work, you'll be ready to take on a junior level developer position.

    For more insight, check out this interview with Roger, our lead instructor.

  • Am I guaranteed to get a job after the program?

    No, but we'll do everything in our power to help you get one. This includes assisting you in building your resume, going through mock technical interviews, and getting you connected with local tech companies. There is a very real shortage of tech workers in Austin, so there will be many companies that will be happy to talk to you.

  • Why are you focusing on PHP? Why not Ruby?

    Ruby is a great language, and Ruby on Rails is an amazing framework for building web applications. With that said, there are a few reasons why we are focusing our curriculum on PHP.

    The market for PHP programmers is large, and many different companies work with PHP. It's a well established and mature language with a large number of community supporters, and is flexible enough to build all varieties of applications. Facebook, Yahoo, Google, and many other companies use PHP.

    In fact, PHP is the most popular server-side programming language for websites, and has increased in usage in recent years. More importantly, this means there are more jobs available for PHP developers than Ruby developers. If you search for programmer positions on Indeed, you will see that companies hiring PHP developers generally outnumber companies looking looking for Ruby developers.

  • What companies are using Coder Vox as a talent pipeline?

    Coder Vox is partnered with a number of companies that are looking to hire talented people to fill their software developer roles, including Poetic, Astonish Design, NeedTo, CoachTube, StockMark.It, and Handpicked.

  • I'm coming from outside of Austin. Do you offer assistance in relocation?

    If you need a place to stay for the duration of the course, get in contact with us and we will do our best to accommodate.
