Hi Jaymes. 


Once again, we are really sad by the fact that you are disappointed with our school. As far as I know, it's your second bootcamp which you didn't like. Let me just go through the things you mention to once explain how it works form our part. 


As you mentioned, the course lasts for 9 weeks and it's been proved by our graduates from both, online and in-person formats, to be absolutely enough to get prepared for the junior developer's position. We have our alumni hired in 1-2 months on average after the job placement support starts. And we have companies which already hired our graduates coming back for more of them. Which shows that they are completely satisfied. 


As you mentioned, we provide text materials with explanations and code examples + full length video lessons with us writing and running the code explained in the lecture. It allows students to not just read and try the code but also to actually watch how it is done and follow the instructor to fully implement new concepts in practice. And before they will have to create a 'real' app after the course, as you say, students are build fully functioning apps as a part of the course. One of them is a full-stack web app (example built here: https://e-commerce-.herokuapp.com/) and another one is a native mobile app (example built here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id1414985238). Both have the server, the database and the front-end parts. So after graduation they are already know how to combine all the bits and pieces into a working application.


Speaking of the depth for the instructions, jQuery is a long time legacy part of the curriculum, kept there for those students who are willing to learn it for some reason. And it has 5 blocks, not 1. The mongoDB section has all the information needed and the process of building an app with mongoDB is shown in the complete video lesson. Same for the rest of the topics. We actually guide students through the entire process in our video lessons since this is a mentored course.


The comparison of our curriculum to free tutorials is completely incorrect, since courses on self-learning platforms have much lower level of difficulty and do not prepare a student for a real life work. The exercises either too simple or have an option to see the solution, which is not going to happen in real life. We are preparing our students for applying for the jobs, not just learning programming as a recreational habit. 


And the refund policy is explained right away on our website, since you get access to all the materials, video lessons, exercises, projects, and there is no way to 'return' it we have to use this policy. It is possible to cancel the participation and get full refund before the starting date of the course, but not after you got all the materials which are actually self sufficient to finish the program. 


Once again, really sorry to hear that and hope you will find school which is more suitable for you. 


Best regards, 
George
