    I got my Bachelor's in Business Administration, and was disappointed with the salaries when I entered the workforce. Not sure if this is the same outside the SF Bay Area, but I noticed a huge discrepancy between Computer Science and Data Analytics salaries versus Business/Marketing/Sales salaries. I knew I needed to learn those tech skills if I wanted to afford to live where I am going forward. Plus, I was always interested in technology, but wasn't young enough to grow up in an environment where women were encouraged to pursue careers in STEM. I feel like now it is a lot more common to see women in Technology, and I am happy to see it. 
    I am planning to move to a different department within my current company, which is a tech company. After I obtain my certificate I will be eligible to go for Product Management, Business Operations, Growth Analytics, etc. – there are a ton of applications for data skills. I've found that coding is a lot like math (a lot of f(x) stuff) so if you feel comfortable with math, you should definitely learn how to code. Everyone I know who works in technology loves it. Soon I will be one of them  :') 
    This bootcamp is definitely intense, so prepare to devote around 20 hours a week or more. Ask for help, the TAs and your fellow classmates are very helpful. There is tutoring available as well.

    In three decades of attained achievements and shaping experiences, this program has directly and indirectly impacted me in ways I could only have prayed for.  I am not just drinking from the proverbial fire hose of UC Berkeley vigorous curriculum. If this were the case, the greatest takeaway could be what's stated on the syllabus. This boot camp has been so much more. In its entirety, this experience will not only allow me a competitive edge as a cyber sec professional, but the brilliance/inspiration demonstrated by the instructors/assistants and success manager offered lessons in mental fortitude, gratitude, and compassion that extend to all realms personal/professional/academic. Some of my takeaways could arguably be attributed to the unique composition and timing of my specific boot camp, but by far, the potent constant, student success manager, Krishana Anderson, is an incredible mind and person that is willing, eager, able to help you maximize your experience as you get closer to your goals (just come driven to advance yourself because she can't do it for you).  Whether you never graduated high school or just finished an ivy league doctorate, this boot camp offers the knowledge, tools, and support to advance a path in IT/cyber security.  This is NOT empty rhetoric.  Feel free to reach out on LinkedIn to verify claims or ask more specific questions.  As evidence to my bold statements, my class enrolled brand new entrants to the IT space as well as industry veterans actively employed, and the course provides the content, structure, and support for BOTH groups and everyone in between. I am humbled, touched, and eternally grateful.

    Berkeley FinTech Bootcamp is one of the best way to start your career in FinTech industry. I loved the way they helped me in learning basics of coding with real life experiences in a form of case studies to be covered in weekly assignments. Teaching faculty is very cooperating and helpful, they pay attention to each individual to overcome his problem or doubts. I have made new connections and advanced my knowledge in the world of finance and technology. This 6 months course is amazingly designed to boost one’s confidence to start his/her career right after this Bootcamp. 

    I was quite reluctant few months ago while writing a code but now Im very confident and happy that I chose this program to transform myself in the world of FinTech. I highly recommend this course to individuals who are looking for a new start in their career.

    Firstly, this is not a beginners program as it is very fast-paced. I would recommend going on Udemy and buying programs from Colt Steele
    https://www.udemy.com/user/coltsteele/ and  Maximilian Schwarzmüller
     https://www.udemy.com/user/academind/ for $14.99 when they have a sale.  What is important is really learning what they teach and apply it to a project or 2 to get attention from recruiters and then practice coding challenges on leetcode and hacker rank. 
    Secondly, it does not begin to cover everything you need to know about Full Stack Development especially the backend stuff. You need to know systems design, deployment to AWS, Kubernetes, Docker, etc that are not taught here.  It is a lot of money to just gain the basics.

    Thank you for your feedback, Juliet. As this is a boot camp, we recognize the course material is fast-paced and challenging while covering a wide range of topics. It's our mission to help as many hard-working, aspiring web developers as we can, so our program is designed for individuals with varying levels of proficiency, including beginners.

    We equip students with a robust academic framework and begin by covering the fundamentals. Each lesson builds upon the last, helping students create a strong foundational skill set and learn how to problem-solve and self-teach—key skills needed in any developer’s career. This foundation equips students with the skills to master additional languages or frameworks following graduation.

    From your review, we understand you did not feel this learning approach was sufficiently beneficial for you and realize you would have liked to spend more time focusing on systems design, deployment to AWS, Kubernetes, and Docker. We appreciate your input as we're constantly optimizing our curriculum and program offerings.

    We would love the opportunity to speak with you directly to learn how else we can assist you at this time. If you would like, please reach out to us at (510) 306-1218.

    I decided to switch careers after a long stretch doing economic modeling.  I looked into options available and suitable and found the Berkeley Data Analytics Boot Camp.  It ticked many of the right boxes:
    • Broad curriculum that would give me exposure to a large set of tools.
    • 24 weeks duration, not too long and not too short.
    • Could be completed remotely 100%.
    • Recognized University in the tech industry.
    • Right price and payment scheme.
    • Career Services aimed to help me find a position within Data Sciences.

    Currently we are half way through the course and I am extremely happy with the program. The material is well structured and provides guided hands-on learning on the multiple tools and technologies.  There are also lots of support available.  There are multiple Office Hours where the Teaching Assistants (TAs) can provide support and answer questions.  It's also possible to request additional tutoring one-on-one sessions and even post questions to the entire class via Slack.

    The instructor Ryan, and the TAs are very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions. A few of the TAs have been through the Boot Camp themselves, so they are familiar with the type of questions and issues that we may have.

    I have also found some of the Career Services presentations very informative and have helped me feel more confident about my future.

    However, it's a fast paced course with lots of tools and programming languages presented.  I feel that I need to put in at least 20hrs/week are needed to get the most out of it.  
    One piece of advice that was given to us at the beginning was to stay ahead of the lectures, reviewing the online module materials ahead of the lecture and not letting much time pass before completing the week's challenge.

    Cheers,
    Jose.

    For me and my family, as new immigrants, the year 2020 was challenging, to say the least. It was a year of adjustments. Most people had to acquire new skills to get a job. For me, it was the year when I decided to make room for myself in my new homeland and become employable. I set out to self-educate myself through various online courses. However, what I missed was the experience of experts in the field that interests me. Also, the way of employment here is different than in my homeland, so I needed help with that as well. Luckily, I saw an ad for the Berkeley Tech Project Management Boot Camp, where they offered just that: instructors who are professionals and Career Services’ help with hiring. After reading the reviews, I realized that this is the right program for me.

    Now that I’ve passed half the course, I know I’ve made a good decision. Instructor William is an expert, very knowledgeable, and eager to help and answer all questions. His insight into day-to-day commitments, advice on difficulties, and possible solutions in the Technology Project Manager’s workday is very helpful. The knowledge and skills that I already gained in this program, helped me to present myself as more of an expert and embrace challenging and demanding roles in Technology Project Management. 

    This is a very challenging program, but also very satisfactional in terms of gaining new skills and knowledge that is in high demand. If you are someone looking for a way to change a career path, or even only to acquire a new set of skills, look no further than UC Berkeley. Always challenge yourself, learn as much as you can, it wouldn’t be waste of time. Don’t be uncomfortable to ask questions or get a tutor, there is a team of professionals watching your progress and wishing you success.

    The program does not hold back even from day 1. The prework gives an a small sample of what to expect throughout the course but the rigorous nature of the course would not be justified using words and must be felt. Proper planning and time management is necessary to complete this course and get the full benefit of learning all they have to offer. But at the end of the journey, there will be much that have been learned with your progress laid bare in front of you through the projects you've done. The job assistance does exist however at this present time, I have not been able to be immersed in it.

     As a 45 year old single mom facing re-entry into the workforce after taking a long break, my options seemed limited, yet as I researched what I would like to peruse, digital marketing seemed to be a very exciting prospect to me. I looked into many other courses available and could not decide which course suited my needs. Till I saw a Facebook ad from  Berkeley Digital Marketing Boot Camp and clicked to find out more. The curriculum seemed to be a perfect fit for what I was looking for and the course is  focused on getting into jobs right away. Compared to other similar courses available online, this program offer skills that are much in demand for a career in digital marketing. I signed up immediately. 
      It was a daunting idea  going  back to studying after a break of 22 years.  At first it was really nerve racking and I felt I had to learn how to focus, and pay attention. The online classes were also a challenge, but with our friendly instructor Franco and the helpful TA's  who made us feel at ease, online learning does not seem so hard. I also really appreciate the tutor I have been provided with, that extra help in clarifying topics I have doubts in, really is a lifesaver for me. I also enjoy the slack channel connect with fellow students. We really help each other on any doubts we may have and in the last few months we have a great camaraderie with each other. I look forward to attending my classes .
     Career services is also very helpful, they have provided many tools to be employer ready and I look forward to availing their services fully after the course is over 
    As a student I would advice others to really enjoy the process. Take the help of the tutors, Ask as many questions on slack. Also for me I am really enjoying the subject and I do try to read and research as much as I can. 
    I started this course with much trepidation, halfway through this course I am filled with hope, of widening Horizons and I look forward to a new beginning.
