    Berkeley Cybersecurity Boot Camp

    UC Berkeley Bootcamp is a great launchpad for people looking to explore a career in the tech industry. The class, instructors and TA's are the best. It only takes a few hours of the your evenings and early morning of your Saturday. The class flew by quickly and I learned everything needed to take the SEC+ exam plus even get a job in the industry

    Data Analytics Bootcamp 2022

    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 environm...

    A starting point

    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.

    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.

    Full stack flex program

    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'...
