I had been a hairstylist for fifteen years and had absolutely zero tech experience, but had been curious about it for about five years--especially seeing how my friends in the industry were thriving financially. I liked that the program was fully online but that there were scheduled, structured classes along with flexible scheduled group work time, along with work that you did on your own schedule. The program not only sets you up for success tech-wise, but the career support and staff in general are invaluable. Between the technical training, the full-stack projects you build, the experience you get working with actual clients, and the interview and resume coaching, you really are positioned to land that first job within the first few months (or sooner--I had many cohort-mates that landed jobs while they were still in the program!). It took me about five weeks of interviewing after I graduated to receive two job offers. I accepted a position at a small software consulting agency in Minneapolis and happily celebrated my one-year anniversary at this month. The work is incredibly social and creative, and the risk was absolutely worth the reward. It's rare to leave a career of fifteen years and experience a significant increase in income with your first job in the new field, and my annual raise after one year was right around 15%! I can work from home as much or as little as I like which is a HUGE plus, I love the flexibility. If you are considering a bootcamp and want to land your first job in the Minneapolis area especially (their connections to the job market here are so valuable, although I think they would set you up for success no matter where you are located), Prime is absolutely worth the investment.

It's hard to believe that I am already halfway through The Full Stack Coding Boot Camp program! The journey so far has been nothing short of transformative, and I'm honored to share my experience.
The decision to pursue a career in coding wasn't an easy one, but it was undoubtedly one of the best choices I've made. Having recently graduated from the Data Analytics and Visualizations boot camp at this same prestigious university, I found myself at a crucial juncture. The fast-paced evolution of technology and my desire for a dynamic, challenging career led me to explore coding as a viable option. The Full Stack Coding Boot Camp stood out to me as a comprehensive and immersive program that aligned perfectly with my goals.
My experience with The Full Stack Coding Boot Camp has exceeded my expectations in many ways. The curriculum is not only relevant and up-to-date but also delivered in a way that fosters a supportive learning environment. The hands-on projects and collaborative nature of the program have been instrumental in solidifying my understanding of coding concepts. The mentors and instructors are incredibly knowledgeable and always ready to provide guidance, making the learning process both engaging and enjoyable.
One of my favorite aspects of the program is the emphasis on real-world applications. The practical skills I've gained, coupled with the simulated work environment, have significantly boosted my confidence in tackling coding challenges. The sense of accomplishment after completing each project is unparalleled, and it's these moments that make the program truly rewarding.
To prospective students considering The Full Stack Coding Boot Camp, my advice is to embrace the journey wholeheartedly. Be prepared to put in the effort, stay curious, and don't hesitate to seek help when needed. The coding community at the boot camp is incredibly supportive, and there's a wealth of resources available to ensure your success.

The structure of the courses is easy to follow, and the combination of exercises and instruction, along with a weekly workshop, is perfect for gaining traction quickly in the age of remote-first learning. That being said, the help of the instructors is always there when you need it, but the online modules are so thorough that I rarely found myself asking for it. I could not be happier with my choice to enroll and I highly recommend Nucamp's bootcamps, especially to those like me who prefer a more independent approach to learning!
