I have nothing but positive things to say about my experience working with Code the Dream. I was drawn to working with them on a website creation project because of the mentoring and skill-building side of their mission, and I would work with them again in a heartbeat due to the stellar professional services that I received. The website is brilliant, and the process of working with Alex was smooth, responsive, and efficient. She guided me skillfully through the key choices in the design process and used excellent judgment to come up with solutions. The final product is beautiful to view, easy to navigate, and full of great information. It exceeded my hopes and expectations, which I credit fully to Alex and Code the Dream.
"Developing the site with Code the Dream (Alex Rodriguez in particular) was great! It was my first time working to develop a site and they were very responsive and patient while working with me and our team. The site looks great, is being used frequently, and I'm able to make edits as they are needed, because of their training."
“Code the Dream is always a pleasure to work with. Their team is extremely knowledgeable which makes the development process smooth and seamless. Their work is always top-notch and you can tell they want to put together the best product for you and your users. They took our feedback well and are able to brainstorm solutions with us when needed. The team was available for meetings and back and forth emails to help problem solve once they launched the NCMA’s Virtual Exhibition Subscription. It was comforting to know that there is a reliable team support the Museum’s goals. ”
EFWM staff has really enjoyed working with Code the Dream on the development of the Vamos Outreach App. We appreciate the support and kindness of everyone involved. Since starting to use Vamos for our outreach visits to farmworkers in Eastern North Carolina, it has already increased the effectiveness of our outreach efforts. We will be using the web app to plan our outreach, and we use the mobile app to locate labor camps, track our visits and donations, and make notes about anything that needs attention. Thanks to the app our work is more efficient and productive.”
The development of this app was such an exciting process! It was fascinating to follow these murals from the beginning concept drawings done by the artists, Cornelio and Cecelia, to the unimaginable engagement Code the Dream has made possible through this app. I never could have anticipated how much fun it would be to watch the creative minds at Code the Dream bring people from the street into the galleries of the museum! Everyone involved was extremely mindful of the integrity of artists’ work and the underlying messages they were conveying. Congratulations to the team and huge thanks from the North Carolina Museum of Art for all their hard work! We love when our work reaches beyond the walls of our buildings and into the lives of people across the state. ”
We were so impressed with the website that Chris and Alex created for the Face Mask Warriors! In about 24 hours from our kick-off, we had a new look and feel to our website that aligned really well with our mission. It became a key resource for our members to find resources on how to donate masks and for front line workers to request masks for their organizations. They have been efficient at making new changes, like adding a map of facilities that need masks or volunteer sign-up forms. It has truly been a pleasure working with Code the Dream! "
Code the Dream has done a fantastic job building a web app that our users are using every day and are loving! I've been extremely impressed with the speed, cost, and quality with which they've built Upstate. They've also been very flexible and will pull in other developers to help when we need more development work. This has been very important for helping Upstate manage its resources and plan development time and costs. Their entire team has been so easy to work with and I look forward to continuing my work with them"
What I loved about working with Code the Dream to develop the Second Chance Driving website is that we got a high quality, user-friendly product and excellent customer service provided by mission-driven young developers who shared our values of advancing shared prosperity. The website is changing lives, just like Code the Dream."
The Code the Dream team was exactly the developers we needed to move our idea to the next level. They are customer focused and willing to try ideas that push Software as a Service (SaaS) companies. We are proud to be their launch customer for commercial software."
Working with Code the Dream has been really fun and a great learning experience for me too! Alejandra, Andrea, and the team are really responsive and fun to work with. We needed a new web presence and had been using WordPress - they delivered a tidy and energetic site that's really comfortable to maintain but flexible too. I'm excited to keep collaborating with them and grow the web presence of our work with their support and creativity!”
The North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence (NCCADV) has been leading the state’s work in improving healthcare services for survivors of domestic violence for the past few years. NCCADV began working with Code the Dream to build an online toolkit where healthcare providers and domestic violence advocates can access all of the resources that we’ve developed. We appreciate all the work that Code the Dream has done to make this possible. This toolkit will help improve healthcare and safety for survivors in North Carolina"
It has been such a pleasure to work with the team at Code The Dream. Snatcher Inc is a start-up company, and during our journey to launch we have experienced many challenges and setbacks, that oftentimes interrupted completely the website. Code the Dream was more than patient with us and continued to work with us until they created a wonderful website for my company. We are forever grateful for all of their diligence and hard work, in making our website a success. Thank you Code the Dream!"
Code the Dream has developed a very much needed app for farmworkers to find resources based on their location. They are very quick to respond to questions about the app and are continuously suggesting ways to improve the user experience and are in communication with us on a fairly regular basis. The app is revolutionizing the way workers are empowered to seek resources and the way organizations can provide and give service referrals."
