I had a good experience with SMU's coding bootcamp. All the teachers and TA's are real helpful and friendly. I landed a new postion as a Jr. Software Engineer a month or two before class had even ended.
Response From: Netreia McNulty of SMU Coding Boot Camp
Congratulations on your new position as a Jr. Software Engineer! We're glad that you had such a positive experience with this program. It makes us proud of our team to hear that your instructors and TA's provided you with the help you needed. We're cheering you on as you move forward in your career.
I attended the SMU coding bootcamp from April-October of 2017. Before taking this course I had no knowledge of web or software development. To be honest, I was not tech savy in the slightest. Fortunately my instructors were highly knowledgable and passionate about coding. Matt Vella was my teacher and I never felt left behind with his teaching style. He made sure we didn't move on to the next technology/language until we understood the current lesson. In just 6 months, Matt and the teacher assistants, Megan and Tiffany helped transform me into a confident developer. I am excited for my new career to start and cannot praise this program enough.
Response From: Netreia McNulty of SMU Coding Boot Camp

When coding bootcamps started gaining popularity, we wondered if tension would arise between traditional universities and these alternative education providers. On the contrary, a trend arose and universities have now been partnering with coding bootcamps for a few years now. When the Department of Education announced the EQUIP Initiative in October 2015, these collaborations were formalized by the US government; but EQUIP is just one example amongst the myriad of strategic and independent partnerships between universities and coding bootcamps.
