Review: ”It is definitely worth the investment in yourself and your future!”

I came into this course not knowing much about coding and I am leaving a very capable full-stack developer. It is amazing how much we were taught in such a short amount of time.

Like others have said here though, you will only get as much out of the class how much you put into it. Plan on spending around twenty hours a week outside of class working on assignments and reviewing what was taught in class. If you are not willing to do this you will probably struggle.

The program offers many resources to help you including office hours, tutoring sessions, and supplemental videos on coursework. My experience with the instructors an TAs was great – everyone was willing to assist you and wanted to see you succeed. In addition, the comradery amongst students was invaluable. I’ve already been offered freelance JavaScript work. It is definitely worth the investment in yourself and your future!

Whether you have years of experience or none at all, this course will help you open your mind to a different way of thinking. At times, it will be challenging and stressful, but luckily there are several outlets for support.

From day one you are introduced to your Student Success Manager, who is truly there during every step of the way to help guide you through the course. The instructors and TAs are great and easily available to assist with any obstacles you may encounter.

Even though you will spend a lot of time frustrated…the satisfaction of figuring it out will become addictive! You will learn that there are multiple ways to work out any problem. You will not only be learning how to code – you will learn things about yourself and what you’re really capable of. I’d recommend this course to everyone!

Review: ”I'm excited about the possibilities that await after this boot camp and would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a life-changing experience.”

I had very little experience with coding before I started this bootcamp and I was worried about returning to school after so long, but the support that’s available for students is amazing.

I’m so thankful for my instructors and TAs. They were very responsive and available whenever I needed help, even just beyond academic support. The entire team and Yuri, our Student Success Manager, were all emotionally supportive.

The course is fast-paced and packed full of information. There is a lot of material to internalize, process, and use on your own so feeling stressed out becomes second nature. However, I can’t believe I came this far in five and a half months, creating the full-stack web applications I did. I’m excited about the possibilities that await after this boot camp and would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a life-changing experience.
