The Joy of Coding Academy Difference

Our students don't just read about technology or robotically follow tutorials, they apply their skills to real-world software projects. There's just something different when you're learning in a hands-on way. You know those critical skills that seem to live between the topics you find in books and courses, but that no one ever seems to teach about and yet are absolutely essential for your success.

Our unique hands-on learning approach prepares students with the fundamentals to help you become a self-sufficient & confident coder capable of earning six figures. Our students hone their craft learning from industry-leading experts in Full Stack, Mobile, DevOps, Secure Software Engineering, Machine Learning, Game Development, Data Science and AI.

A Note from Dr. Emily, Founder

Hi, I'm Dr. Emily, and I'm the founder of the Joy of Coding Academy. As someone with a PhD in Software Engineering and a former professor with over 50 internationally peer-reviewed publications, in my role as Program Director for Computer Science at Drew University, I graduated dozens of confident coders & six figure software developers who went on to amazing careers at industry giants like Amazon & Chase, as well as startups like Turo.

While a professor, I realized that teaching technology is fundamentally different from teaching subjects like math, history, or English. Tech changes. Rapidly. And that fundamentally changes how we teach. At the Joy of Coding, we teach our students to be confident AND adaptable, so that they can have their pick of future-proof careers.

The Student Experience

“Before I joined the program I took a bootcamp for software testing, I spent some good money on it and it didn’t work for me. When I got stuck, there was no one to help or explain to me. When I first saw The Joy of Coding, it sounded very welcoming. I love the idea of learning at Joy of Coding “work smarter not harder.” Dr. Hill is extremely knowledgeable and fun to work with.

She is always there when I have questions. I didn’t have much confidence in the beginning but she stands by me and encourages me in each step throughout the course.

She makes programming easy to visualize the road map and understand the process.”

Yong W.

“I spent £2850 on a Bootcamp with eight other people here in the UK. This course took 11 hours a day, 6 days a week and by the end of it, I didn’t know how to program.

I then spent another three months self-studying on my own and became overwhelmed as there were concepts I needed help understanding. Emily’s program is designed to teach you where you are at and on your level. I already have grasped more fundamental knowledge of programming than what I thought I could.

I am looking forward to the next couple of months working with her and with her program. It is worth it!”

Our Curriculum

What your next 6 months could look like:

Month 1: Mastering the 7 Basics Bootcamp

Learn to use functions and loops to actually solve coding problems in a single file using python, one of the most versatile (and employable) programming languages on the planet. Understand the role of arithmetic and logic in solving coding challenges to sail through your interview. Take advantage of lists, strings, while loops, dictionaries, and files. Share your progress by using git to post your first portfolio project to GitHub.

More advanced? Hop right into month 2...

Month 2: Advanced Problem Solving

Nail your next technical interview by showcasing your data structures & algorithms expertise. Learn to use data structures such as stacks, queues, dictionaries, multidimensional arrays, and linked lists. Appreciate algorithmic complexity with Big O by comparing sorting & searching algorithms.

At the Joy of Coding Academy, you don't just learn abstract theory, you will practically apply these concepts by implementing the data structures and algorithms to deepen your learning and further develop your problem solving skills. And yes, ace your coding interview.

Month 3: Explore Your Options

Not sure if you'd rather craft a killer front-end UI or build the next devops dashboard? At the Joy of Coding Academy, you get to customize your internship project in consultation with your career advisor so that your experience expertly aligns with your dream Tech Job. You have the opportunity to explore different tech career paths & internship projects before deciding what's best for you.

Month 4: Guaranteed Internship

Skip the no-experience job application process & go straight to the top of the file with a guaranteed internship. Work on a team for a client project that adds direct business value. Help create a student portal, customize yelp or facebook for a niche demographic, or design the next killer SaaS app.

Month 5: Junior Developer Promotion

Once you learn the ropes of how to be an effective team member on an actual client project, the next step is to transition into more feature leadership while you deepen your technical skills. Before graduation and going on the job hunt, every Joy of Coding Academy student gets promoted to Junior Developer.

Month 6: The Job Hunt
