       Within less than 2 months after finishing I landed a job.
      The bootcamps require you to give 200% of your life during those 3 months, but it's definitely worth it. They push you to the limit, all the while maintaining an amazing informal and casual relationship with the class.
      They give you the tools to succeed, but the work needs to come from you.
      The mentorship is great, even if you doubt yourself throughout 90% of the time. In the end you get an amazing feeling of achievement.
      Also, after finishing they don't "dump" you. They almost take you by the hand and give you instructions on what to do after in order to enhance your probability of landing a job. This, to me, was a huge plus.
      There's no magic. Just hard work.
      I can't recommend the bootcamp enough. Even during remote they kept the most iconic parts going and the teaching didn't take a hit. My bootcamp was 80% remote 20% live.
      And, of course, you make amazing and longlasting relationships along the way.

      Before starting the bootcamp, I was looking for a better job, doing something I probably liked.
      After finishing the bootcamp, I am doing what I always dreamed of.
      I am in a job that provides all the challenges I wanted for myself, accepting different daily tasks, learning new things every day and being better than myself the next day.

      The bootcamp I had @ <Academia de Código_>  not only prepared me for my current job, it also provided friends for life, new experiences and in addition to having great tutors, they were always a great support during the bootcamp.

      Would do it again!

      This is one of a kind life changing experience... hands down, no bullshit,  straight forward and as simple as this.
      You get to experience the most intense, fast paced, detailed and specialised training program, focused in computer programming and computer science, but you do this while in the most creative and emancipating environment you can dream of.

      It's something you never seen or tried before, and I can guarantee, you will never experience it again, it's something you do and changes you forever... it goes beyond the coding, it completely changes your life.

      The skills you will learn, what you will achieve, what you will become after the bootcamp is a new enhanced you.

      And the people behind this, the pure brilliance behind each and everyone of them, it's like they are unique stars that somehow got carefully aligned to boost you and leverage all the things you didn't know you had, turning you from the rough piece of carbon into a specialised shiny diamond.

      <AC_> has the best bootcamp ever, EVER.

      I was, once upon a time, an unemployed Clinical Analysis Master's graduate.
      Then I learned how to code, and I never looked back.

      Now seriously, there are many reasons why I think anyone jobless, with quick thinking, an interest for technology and an eternal thirst for knowledge should apply for this course:
      • The syllabus is really strong. You will learn to read the Code as if it was a natural language. It will quickly take you through the 1s and 0s of the old ways, so you better understand how the Code evolved into the modern languages of today (Java && JavaScript).
      • The road is full of challenges and discoveries. You will constantly have the limits of your abilities tested. But don't worry if this sounds scary. You will always have by your side trustworthy Padawans (instructors) to guide you through.
      • You will obtain knowledge that will turn you into an independent and ever-evolving Je- I mean Coder.

      On the career side of things:
      • You will be prepared for interviews. During the bootcamp you will be doing presentations, test your tech knowledge and improving your CV to better suit the needs of your future employers.
      • There are opportunities during the bootcamp for employers to contact you directly and you will be prepared accordingly.
      • Last time I checked, the percentage of employed graduates was around 96%.

      What are you waiting for? Change your life. Do or do not. There is no try - said a green wise wizard.
    • Best experience!

      Just possibly the best thing that ever happened to me!

      I have a degree in Biology but I struggled to have a consistent, well-paid job.
      After some back and forth in my life, I found this incredible and supporting family called <Academia de Código_>.

      The Bootcamp is very intense but it manages to make you a great problem solver.
      The syntax is just syntax, I think the best outcome is their ability to make you think for yourself, gain confidence, and that makes you capable of learning, and overcoming any struggle.
      This is much more than just a regular Bootcamp, it makes you a better person overall and gives you the tools to thrive in software development, you just need to have the guts and the will to take it and make your own path.

      The best decision I ever made. It is really intensive, you breathe coding all day long during 14 weeks, you will need willpower avoid quitting in the first 2 weeks, but it will be 200 % worth.

      You will learn how things work, you learn how to do things from zero, you really know what is happening behind all the abstraction that the different frameworks and libraries use during the boot camp. Design Patterns and good practices are present every day in every lecture.

      Beyond all the programming concepts, you will make a new family with other Cadets, with the Master Coders and all the people from Academia de Código.

      After the 14 weeks, you will be a new person, you will know your strengths and weakness, and most of all you will be ready to get trough any challenge you face in your life.

      Don't think twice and apply for the boot camp ... thank me later.

      If you want a course that will change your life, not only professionally but also personally, this is the course for you! 
      You will meet amazing people and learn, not only how to program, but also how to think and how to go through the obstacles ahead of you. But, pay attention, all of this with a lot of effort and dedication on your part!
      After 14 weeks, you will be reborn as a new person with a new family and with a lot of knowledge and practice that will help you enter the labour market.

    Thanks!
