Coder Success Story
From Cleaner to Web Developer at Hismile
"Coder [Academy] is honestly life changing.
I went from being unfulfilled as a cleaner to working as a full time web developer at Hismile and literally waking up for the past year thinking, “I can’t believe my life”; it’s the most fulfilling career I think anyone could have."
Reinvent your future with Australia's original Accredited Coding Bootcamp
In 2015, Coder Academy swung open the doors of Australia’s first coding bootcamp, inspired by the popular Silicon Valley bootcamp format.
Today, Coder Academy is a place for change-makers who believe ‘it’s never too late’’. We’ve helped hundreds of students radically change their lives by learning to code, sometimes without previously touching a line of code or even owning a laptop.
Take Jess, who used to work in hospital admin and, since graduating from Coder Academy in 2018, went on to do a 3-month traineeship with Mantel Group, after which she was hired permanently as an associate software engineer. She is now a senior software engineer with the same company.
We’re the real deal and we have real success stories. It’s why you won’t see any stock images of fake business-y people pointing at blue lit screens. We have a strict no stock image policy, so any person you see representing our brand, we know – by name.
