    The Good:

    The curriculum was heavy and fast-paced - definitely the hardest schooling I've ever done. It grinded me in JavaScript which produced some pretty awesome projects. The instructors and TAs where pretty good and were always available to help for the most part.

    The Bad:

    Concentrated way too much on Node.js and ignored core web development languages like .Net, Python, PHP and more. The job assistance portion of the post program is lame. Help with resume and cover letter but after that it's all about you becoming a socialite and doing free work. Lots of canned responses that don't really help answer specific questions.

    The Ugly:

    Irvine is flooded with qualified Web Developers. Employers don't seem to care that you've attended a UCI bootcamp. They want 3-5 years of development experience with proven growth because they can get it - even for Junior Web Dev positions. The very few responses you'll receive back from applications will ask you about your experience in some technology you don't have - and it's different every time.

    Result:

    Save your money by learning HTML, CSS and JavaScript through all the free certificate courses out there. Start a website of your own to practice with and become better and fight to get someone to give you a chance as an intern or junior developer. Bootcamps are a dime a dozen these days and employers know it. If you feel you need to spend $10K+ to crunch out a few nice projects in short timeframes, then bootcamp is for you.

    Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback, Anonymous. This program is definitely challenging and fast-paced as you noted, and we're glad that you thrived in learning JavaScript and were able to use those skills to create impressive projects. We are very proud of the instructional team, so it's great that you had a good experience with them too.

    A100% positive student experience is our number one priority, so we appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts on our curriculum and career support services.

    We understand that you wanted to dive into languages like .Net, Python, and PHP, however, our course curriculum did indicate that those languages would not be taught in the program. Our curriculum is constantly updated to be in line with market demands, and currently, our regional specialization includes C#/ASP.Net. While we do not expressly cover .Net, Python, or PHP, our program prides itself on teaching students how to learn, so that students will have a strong foundation to easily learn other programming languages after graduation.

    Our career services are built on the principle of empowerment. We help to prepare our students for the job search process by providing them with the necessary tools and support that will not only help them in their immediate future as they move forward from our program, but also in the long-term development of their careers.

    The services we offer for career preparation are constantly improving, and our students' experiences can vary as we continue to evolve and implement feedback. Though we do not know when you completed the boot camp, our career services curriculum has always included 1:1 coaching with a Career Director, technical interview preparation, portfolio feedback, resume support, tech panels, and final project events where students gain insight and feedback from industry professionals. 

    During the program, we emphasize networking and encourage students to work on projects outside of class that can further their skills and improves their marketability. Our team strives to be clear about the scope of our career services from the beginning so that our students understand how they can get the most out of this aspect of the program.

    We regret to hear that you did not have an overall positive experience with our program, and we would like the opportunity to speak with you and determine what additional support we can provide you with at this time. Please reach out to me directly at (949) 214-4016 so that we can further address your concerns.

    I recently enrolled for the Coding Boot Camp at UC Irvine Continuing Ed in partnership with Trilogy Education Services. The enrollment process has been smooth so far and everyone has answered all the questions I have asked at both UCI-CE and Trilogy. I was at first skeptical about it since technically this is a Trilogy Education Service program that is run at UC Irvine along with many other Extension and Continuing Ed programs across the country. I did a lot of research and looked up reviews at all the other schools to see what the feedback was and almost all of it is good. The UCI program only started this year so there hasn't been a cohort to finish yet but UCLA has had good sucess so I would look at that program as I imagine it will be very similar to UCI's. There are also some good reviews and feedback on Reddit too if you want to look them up. The current instructors they have are getting great feedback from the current students from what I have heard.

    Like everything in life you get what you put into it, so if you aren't willing to do the work outside of the classroom I would look elsewhere. What really sold me on the program was the part-time 24 week program. I work full-time and the class schedule will work well with my schedule and family. There isn't any other part-time programs in the area that cover the Full-Stack, I only saw one other one that was a 10-week course and only covered the Front-End. I also like that spread out over 6 months instead of cramming it all in 12 weeks which is much better suited to my learning style.

    I'm looking forward to getting started on the pre-course work and diving in head first come September. I'll update my review a few weeks into the course.

    Congratulations on enrolling in our program! It’s excellent that we were able to answer all of your questions throughout the admissions process. We know that choosing a boot camp is a big decision, it makes us proud to hear that our team was able to provide you with the guidance you needed in order to make an informed decision. Also, It’s great that you took the time to research the experiences of past students. The student experience is our top priority, so we take feedback seriously because we want to ensure that our students have the best boot camp experience possible and we’re constantly improving to meet their needs.

    It's wonderful that our part-time program works for your schedule. It's designed for professionals like you, who require class times outside of work hours and on weekends. We’re excited for you to start the program, and hope you find it to be a valuable educational experience.

    As you mention, this program will require you to work hard to develop the many skills covered in the curriculum, so we’re glad you’re ready to dive in!  We can’t wait to see what you can accomplish with the knowledge and skills that you will gain, and wish you success in this program, and beyond.

    Make no mistake. This is an extremely intensive course (speaking of the full time course). You will work and study like crazy in and out of class.

    I believe the rewards are well worth it. I came to this class as an experienced non-web developer and learned a lot. I can't wait to apply it but first I'm going to spend a solid week or two reviewing everything I've learned. 

    The instruction team is top notch as is career support. The question is do you really want to do this? I suggest you visit Scratch,  a site that teaches kids to program. Get an account and try to create something simple. This is a UCI Coding Bootcamp pre-class assignment. If this frustrates you DON'T ENROLL. But if you keep at it and enjoy it, consider taking the next step.

    Amazing, Mike! You are correct that this is an extremely intensive course, requiring hard work and additional time outside of class to master the topics. We are so happy you enjoyed our instructional and career teams and were able to learn so much in a short time period. Thank you for sharing this advice for interested students looking to apply. Congratulations on graduating, we truly appreciate your feedback! We wish you all the best moving forward.
