    I'm about a month away from graduating the 6-month variant of the Berkeley Bootcamp, and while I can't speak to landing a career out of the program just yet (fingers crossed), I can speak to the program itself.

    Overall, the structure of the 6-month program was a homework a week throughout the entire course and three group projects. The group projects were larger in scale and had two weeks devoted to them, with the first few being with "randomized" groups (or well, groups drafted by the professors to adequately match different skill levels).

    As far as the skills we've learned, it does feel like a tremendous amount I am leaving the program with. I went in with a very limited grasp of web development thanks to sites like CodeAcademy and Lynda, but have been quickly (or what feels quickly) been learning more and more complex things. By the time you learn jQuery, there is little stopping your front-end from really shining.

    Backend wise, the build up was a bit slower but still quite empowering. You start with node, scrapping the front end for a while and just dealing with backend computing, then servers, then databases, handlebars, scraping, etc.

    By the time the second group project came about, the ambition each group displayed and final product was leaps and bounds ahead of the first project, let alone our first homework assignment.

    Our instructor was/is excellent, very clear in teaching the material, but also ensuring everyone gets it. Nobody is really safe to just sit back and not participate. 

    Which leads up to overall point I think is important to stress -- you only get out of this what you put into it. I know it's a bit of a cliche, but it is important to note. Those classmates that did not participate struggled in later months. By the group project, working with some of those people was not always the best either. It's just the nature of the beast. But as far as your individual success with the program, you just have to understand that it really, really requires you to be involved 100% from the get go. Any slowing down and you'll have a hard time getting back.

    We'll see how landing a career goes in the next few months, but as far as the learning component of this program goes I have been incredibly pleased. I'd recommend it to anyone considering transitioning to a web development career or just improving their skillset.

    I decided to make a career change from architecture (construction) to full stack development, because technology intrigues and motivates me. The only coding experience I had coming into the bootcamp was from sites like codecademy, udemy, udacity, and edx. I taught myself some programming languages, but nothing in comparison to what I learned in this bootcamp.

    If you're approaching this bootcamp just to get a certificate, you won't make it. You need better motivation than that if you're going to get through the points of frustration you will experience during this course. Take this course seriously to give yourself the best chance out there.

    Some concepts may come easy, while other concepts may cause you issues. In the cases you need help, please feel free to reach out to your instructors, tutors, classmates, and any friends that you think could help you. But only reach out after you've tried looking for the solution yourself, and have come across a road block. Expect to put in 40+ hours outside of the classes for homework, research, review, and whatever else you need to do to stay on top of it. If you find yourself ahead in class, keep going. If you find yourself behind, catch up however you need to.

    The support from the instructional team and career services is always there. The instructional team has gone above and beyond to make sure we understood the material, but you can only do so much in such a short amount of time. It's up to you to read extra documentation, google a bit more about concepts, and whatever it is you need to do to stay up to date with the material.

    I hope you guys find this review helpful. I was trying to right a review that I wish I had when I researched which bootcamp to attend. Good luck!

    Congratulations on completing the program, Roper! We really appreciate your feedback.

    As you mention, this course can be challenging and requires that students commit an appropriate amount of time and effort to learning these valuable new skills. This is excellent insight for future students.

    It makes us proud to hear that our team provided you with the support and guidance you needed, even going above and beyond to make sure that you absorbed the course material. We applaud all of the hard work you put into this course, and we’re wishing you the best of luck in your future endeavors.

    I feel scammed knowing I took part in this program and want anyone considering to stay away ESPECIALLY BEGINNERS. There are plenty of better programs out there go there even if there more expensive, if these bozos offer an ISA ESPECIALLY STAY AWAY. That fact that they didn't at the time screamed 'we don't expect you to find a job so why bother offering this is a payment option'. Why so bad, there are cheaper schools that offer more especially in the current climate eg you can find a better curriculum on most coursea certifications. The instructors are top notch but they'll quickly lose touch after the transaction is completed. The job services, they do their best given the limitations but its hard to see the results given the placements of graduates. I found a job that has nothing to do with data analysis and am unlikely to make any traction in that field without a professional degree. This camp made no difference it should be at least half the price to make it decent. I don't know if its administratively bloated or the instructors are laughing to bank but the price doesn't add up. That being said while in the course everyone is available and does their best but the price doesn't justify the services. If I were gonna suggest an improvement add an internship with the admin company for an extra resume boost (just make up some chart assignments and deploy some code via github tasks).

    Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We're glad to hear you found our instructors to be knowledgeable but regret your experience as a whole did not live up to your expectations.

    Our boot camp serves a mix of individuals ranging from beginners to professionals. For our data analytics course, we do recommend applicants hold a bachelor’s degree or have at least two years of experience in business, management, finance, statistics, or a related field. For those without prior experience, we do our best to emphasize the importance of completing the program pre-work and exploring additional introductory learning materials prior to the start of the class. It is our goal to provide a beneficial learning experience for all of our students and we are constantly modifying our material in order to best prepare learners for the challenging nature of the curriculum.

    We strive to provide supportive guidance throughout the entirety of the program through office hours, teaching assistants, Slack, and our free tutor network, but we understand that you would have liked more enhanced support. Our main priority is and will continue to be the student experience and we want all students to get the support they need to be successful.

    You are completely right that our career services are built on the principle of empowerment. While we do not secure direct employment for students, we provide individualized support, technical interview training, portfolio reviews, 1:1 coaching, and more to help students become competitive job candidates. Based on your review, we understand that you have not yet achieved your desired job outcomes. We are continually optimizing our professional development assistance, so we thank you for sharing this input. 

    We sincerely care about all our learners and would welcome the opportunity to further discuss how else we can support you at this time and help meet your expectations. If you would like, please reach out to us directly at (510) 455-5867.

    I took the Full Stack Web Development Bootcamp at UC Berkeley Extension provided by Trilogy from May to November 2018. It was the online, partime program. Going into an online program, I expected mainly instructional material in form of texts without much social interaction. But the class was held in zoom with the option of small group work and was actually very social. Up front they told us that it was going to be fast pace and that one would need to put in a significant amount of extra study time to keep up. So it was! I was working only part-time at the time, but am very glad that I took the part-time program which gave me the extra study time I needed. The bootcamp does not really cover object oriented programming principals or network communication concepts and protocols, but it provides lots of practical knowledge, tips and tricks, lots of programming experience and creative room in assignments. I had taken several CS classes previously at a Community College, but felt challenged from day 1. I gained a level from which I can build my own applications now and enjoy doing so very much. Web Development is definetely the field that I want to work in and I am about to start hunting for jobs. Some of the career service workshops are helpful, but I find the greatest resources are the 1-on-1 sessions with my coach, and the feedback from the "milestones" coursework, where you write your resume, and set up your online appearance. The bootcamp is expensive, but overall it was a valuable learning experience for me.

    • The administratin is very disorganized. We are being cut off one or two lecture days short because they messed up the schedule.  They failed to update the curriculum to match the holiday schedule.  
    • We missed some materials.  Some materials were totally useless.  The materials weren't updated per the latest standard. The instructor had to rewrite parts of the code very often. 
    • Career service was a joke.  Took lecture time to talk about career service while knowing some students are not looking for career service. Wasted their time often. Office hours in the middle of business hours. Can't attend while we were at work. 
    • Only one instructor was good but whenever other instructors taught, the good instructor had to review the material again. 
    • A lot of the students were very behind. Tutoring service was very hard to schedule during the time students attend.
    • The web app interface looked like it was made 5yrs ago and it was not working when the class started.  Scary, coming from a code camp. 
    • They didn't pay for Slack so we lost old important messages from instructors.

    Hi Anonymous,

    We really appreciate you taking the time to leave us feedback about your experience. We know that your cohort had to make a small schedule change toward the end of your program, and we regret any inconvenience this may have caused. 

    Class schedules are subject to change, and on the occasion that a change is needed, this can affect lecture schedules in order to minimize the overall impact on the student experience and learning process. We also constantly update our curriculum, and as technology is ever-changing, this sometimes requires us to update our materials during the course of the program. We value our instructors' skills and their efforts toward keeping our curriculum in-line with the latest market demands.

    Our career curriculum often integrates into the existing class schedule because we strive to give all students access to our professional development services including career coaching, portfolio reviews, resume and social media profile support, and technical interview training.

    As you mention, our instructors come from a variety of backgrounds within the field of web development and will often have different teaching styles. Our classes are recorded for quality assurance, and weekly feedback forms allow us to hear directly from students to make sure they are on pace and receiving a favorable teaching experience. We also provide additional academic support in the form of free tutoring sessions, online and in-person office hours, direct contact with instructors and TAs, and optional one-on-one meetings with student support or career services team members that students can schedule at a time that works for them.

    We are sorry to hear that you had difficulty finding a time to attend tutoring sessions, and we'd like to better understand how we can accommodate you and other students who may have challenging schedules. We would also like to know how else we can equip you for success at this time. Please contact me directly at (510) 306- 1218.

    This class is a fantastic example of getting out what you put in. I had no experience whatsoever with programming prior to my enrollment in the class, and having completed the program I feel as though I now have a great platform from which I can learn programming on my own. The instructors and assistants were personable, knowledgeable, and excellent programmers, and the career assitance that I received upon completion of the program was great. 

    Coming from 0 experience I found it difficult to jump straight into a development role upon completion of the program, but I have no doubt that it is possible if one were to commit the requisite effort to do so. I took the class for the purpose of learning basic development skills and providing a platform from which to learn further, and that is exactly what I received. That said, the skills that I learned were nonetheless extremely helpful in bolstering my technical background (i.e. basic development skills are a fantastic resume booster regardless of whether or not one becomes a developer).  

    My only gripe about the program (if any) would be that there is a little too much time spent learning jQuery (a Javascript library that I've found to have little use in the programming world), but the concepts learned were nonetheless appicable to further learnings and the rest of the curriculum was excellent. 

    Overall, this is a great program for learning basic development skills. Be prepared to put in a significant amount of time outside of class if you're coming from 0 experience and want a development job right out of the program, but it is certainly possible!

    Be aware of this Berkeley coding boot camp. When you interested in the course and contact them, they will call you many thousand times. After you pay the deposit $2500 upfront, be aware that $1000 is no refundable, even you did not go your first day of the class. Also If you have any questions they don't want to answer you on the phone. They will block your phone number and you will directly into voicemail and never call into their admission main line. They reply email also very slowly like around 2 or 3 days later. They just want your money. After you pay your deposit they don't care about anything.

    Hi Anonymous, thank you for sharing with us. We take feedback very seriously and regret to hear about your experience. 

    Our refund policy as well as the enrollment agreement (EA) you signed when you paid your deposit does note that $1,000 of the deposit is not refundable. While we never want our students to drop from the program, we are transparent about the nonrefundable part of the deposit so that students are aware of how a refund would be processed if they choose to drop. By making clear the non-refundable portion of the deposit at the time of enrollment, we also ensure that students reserving a seat feel confident in their decision to enroll. This is important since that seat will not be available to any other student interested in the program.
     
    Our admissions and student success teams receive many phone calls and emails during the day, and do their best to ensure that they address each person’s concerns in a timely manner. We are sorry that you had difficulty getting answers to your questions. We can assure you that our staff does not block phone numbers nor intentionally ignore calls—student support is our top priority and we always strive to be responsive. Our phone calls all funnel in through one system and do not go to our advisors’ personal phone numbers, so individual callers cannot be blocked.
     
    We do apologize for any delays you experienced in email communication. It is our goal to respond within 24 to 48 hours, however, this is not always possible. We are constantly working to improve our response time to best serve the needs of both students and applicants.
     
    We sincerely care about our students and always want them to feel valued, supported, and happy with their experience in our programs. Please give our program director a call at (510) 306-1218 so that we can address your concerns further.
