    I have waited a long time to write this review because I didn't want it to reflect badly on me while I applied to other bootcamps.  But my 1:1 interview was so disheartening I thought I should finally write it now that I've attended another bootcamp, graduated, gotten an apprenticeship, and finally have a contract extension offer.

    The application process from start to the first 1:1 interview was about 2 months, and the overall process took 3 months.  I applied in March of 2020 and...

    Expectations Meet Reality

    Ada Developers Academy ( ADA ) delivers what it says it does. You will receive a top notch education in programming, computer science fundamentals, and preparation for whiteboard style interviewing. You will not be charged tuition and you will receive a stipend at the end of each month of your internship that is the equivalent of 35 hours a week at $15 an hour. Taxes will not be taken out of your check as your role is that of a contractor. Most of your class will have job offers befo...

    It sounds like Ada used to be a high-quality school that genuinely cared about its students, but it’s gone downhill fast. I wish I could give negative stars for all the gaslighting and wokewashing. I feel so bad for all the women and gender diverse folks who were hoping for a compassionate school that could help them succeed, but left feeling used and borderline traumatized. Their are tons of people supposedly there to advocate for the students, but when it comes down to it, the bottomli...

    Life changing.

    It's hard to imagine where I would be right now if I hadn't been lucky enough to be accepted to and subsequently complete Ada. The year in the program could be brutal, particularly the classroom period, although the internship certainly came with its own challenges too. But the payoff has been huge in so many ways—intellectually (the job I have now is 1000x more interesting and enjoyable to me than any past job I've had, hands down), financially (I make in the low 90s—not a figure I think ...

Women have historically been left out of tech careers and education – only 21% of undergraduate computer science degrees were awarded to women in 2019. But bootcamps are different – women make up 36% of coding bootcamp alumni, and while the industry hasn't quite achieved gender parity, the percentage of women improves year over year (41% in 2020!) and continues to outpace the percentage of wo...

Women make up only 24% of the tech workforce, and this number could shrink to 22% over the next 10 years. The US isn’t just lacking women in tech, there’s a general shortage of tech talent: universities only graduate about 52% of the technology workforce needed to satisfy a growing job market. Without alternative education funnels like coding bootcamps, which are particularly conducive to wom...
