Hi Wynona. 

It really hurts our feelings to read that you are disappointed with the course. As we are always trying to find the best personalised approach to every student it seems that we have failed to meet your expectations. Maybe it was partly due to you not coming for a lot of lectures and not following the curriculum, ignoring your mentors suggestions, skipping the pre-course or simply our intensive pace and bootcamp format are not something you expected. 

As we have proven job placements for every student who finished the course successfully and was looking for a job your claims about unqualified instructors sound absolutely unbased.

The guy you are referring to never ever attended the course in the first place and simply started looking for excuses after receiving a full pack with materials, video lessons and recorded lectures, so he didn’t have a chance to experience the course and our teaching method.

I just wanted to post some quotes from my emails/messages to you showing concern and availability to help and support you with the course, as we do care for every student:

“Hi Wynona. 
How are you? 
Are you going to be back at school tomorrow? We need to go through the React Native section and bring you up to speed. ”

“Hi Wynona, how are you? 
Haven’t seen you at school for couple of days, is everything alright? ”

“Hi Wynona. 
How is it going? Any questions so far? ”

“Hi Wynona. How are you?
Could you please remind me when you are going to travel for a week? Was it the last week of the course on December 17-21?
As we are starting React Native on Monday it would be best if you are here for this new material.”

“Hi Wynona. How are you?
I’m a bit worried about you skipping the lectures, especially now when we are doing react.js.
Is there some issues/work?”

“Hey Wynona, how is it going?
If you want, we can have a session with you after lunch to go through some exercises or explanations to help you to catch up?”

Etc., etc., etc…

Regardless of all this, we are always here for you available to help with anything possible. 

Thank you.

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
