Edwin

"I was working for more than 10 years in the Stock insurance industry as an administrator. I realised that the scope for growth was limited. I approached my HR manager to see if they will fund my studies in coding as I have always desired to move into coding. As the company used Java, the HR manager approved me studying at a leading Java College, Code College. I attended one week in class per month with study leave and was working the rest of the month, while doing my assignments after hours. When I completed I was immediately moved to the Java team and my salary increased dramatically after that! This was a life-changing course for me!"

Jolanda

"I was working in product support of an HR software supplier for 10 + years and I was very unhappy at being under-utilised for so long. I decided to study while working and opted for the 5 days per month in the classroom and 3 weeks assignemnts after-hours. It was very tough because I was a single mom and I had limited time. I took a bit longer to complete everything (18 months) but I enjoyed every minute of it. I found a job in a leading IT company as a .NET developer after I did a small conversion course recommended by Code College - from Java to .NET"

Xolani

"I was brought up by my mother, a domestic worker who worked for a very supportive family. I was able to go to a good school and I was quite interested in Maths at school although I was not an academic- superstar - just average. I knew I could not afford any studies, so I applied for funding based upon my good Maths marks in matric. Code College sponsored me and I did the Java Bootcamp, paying it back only after I found a job. I must mention - this was my life-changing experience and I can only recommend it! I am now a top developer in one of the big 5 banks and I am earning a six plus figure salary per annum."

Neo

"I was 18 years old just after matric when I enrolled in the Java Bootcamp. I was a good student and was deligeted that my parents would send me on this course, instead of to University because we could not afford university. I worked hard and networked with my friends to get the most out of my studies. I got a job in my 11th month at Code College, as a Junior Java Developer at one of the big banks, and I have grown into my career! I can recommend this course because it is hands-on and prepares you for the employment world!"





Frequently Asked Questions

Programming refers to the process of creating instructions (code) that a computer can understand and execute. It involves writing logical and structured sequences of commands to solve problems or perform specific tasks. Programming allows us to build software applications, websites, mobile apps, and more. At its core, programming involves translating human ideas and logic into a language that computers can interpret. It requires a combination of problem-solving skills, logical thinking, and creativity. In essence, programming empowers individuals to create technology and leverage computers to automate tasks, process data, build interactive experiences, and solve complex problems. Learning programming opens up opportunities to pursue careers in software development, web development, data science, artificial intelligence, and many other fields where coding skills are in high demand.
