    What I got from the program was exactly what I was looking for. I started by taking the part-time front-end development coure and after liking it so much I chose to enroll into the web-dev program. If I had to do it on my own it would've taken me a year of self-learning to cover everything that was taught. One of the greatest parts of the bootcamp is that you get one on one help and can ask questions about anything in the industry, it'll help to steer you on the right path, as web development is such a big industry. The teachers and environment are awesome, open, and friendly. Would def recommed if your interested on starting a new career path in an major industry.

    I am currently in my 4th week of a nine week program at Bitmaker. This is the most difficult and trying educational experience of my entire life! I find It frightening and fulfilling. Intense and supportive, but overall I this school as my new home and I could not be happier with my choice to enroll. 

Thanks!
