      I wanted to do a Coding Bootcamp and realized there was one in my city just around the corner. Bogotá Bootcamp offered full time education in a classroom with no more than ten students, which meant a lot of room for me and my classmates to have direct attention from the instructor. The languages taught are very marketable skills, in the bootcamp we did not only learn how to code, but how to market ourselves for job prospects in terms of interviewing and online presence as developers.

      In the Bootcamp I came a cross people from different countries, the instructors come from the USA and had classmates from Germany, Ecuador and Rusia, which was an unexpected opportunity for me to get to know people from abroad.

      I had  a great time in the Bootcamp, I would recommend it to anywone willing to become a fullstack developer.

      I have a  degree in Mechatronics Engineering and I always wanted to focus my career in software development, that's why I decided to join Bogota bootcamp and it has been among the best decisions I've made in my life.

      I've learned more in one month at Bogota Bootcamp than I did in one year                                  of teaching myself how to program. 

       

      Granger the course teacher gives you the confidence to ask him anything during the course and the feeling of never being alone or behind the group because he is always aware of your progress and making sure that everyone in the course is at the same level. 

      The bootcamp has a very orgnanized curriculum with topics from the programming bases to the most popular frameworks like React, Granger also gives you a lot of freedom in choosing technologies or developing projects that you want to practice or learn and due to his experience as a fullstack in New York He has the ability to support you in the different technologies that you choose, this makes the experience of each one totally personalized and for me was amazing be avaliable to focus in what ever i would like to learn.

      I also had the opportunity to meet and be day by day with very experienced developers, who work at the Bogota devshop which are the nicest people in the world, who were always willing to teach me something new or show me some of the real projects that develop in the devshop.

      My experience in the Bootcamp was so pleasant, they filled every one of the expectations I had of them, they even got me an interview with a great company and they gave me the opportunity to work on a real project at the end of the bootcamp ( how cool is that ! ).

      Granger and Nicolle were always willing to help me in whatever they could, that's why i really recommend Bogota Bootcamp to everyone who wants to become a great developer and have an incredible experience in the process.

      To be perfectly honest, I did have a few reservations about coming over from Australia to study at Bogota Bootcamp. However, a few phone calls with Grainger and Nicolle, and I was on board.

      They offered a flexible payment plan and really helped me get settled in to Bogota. Nothing but good things to say on that front.

      As for the course itself, it is a smaller operation than some of the more established names out there, but I can only see that as a good thing. We had a small class size of about 6 or 7 and each one of us got a good amount of personal attention.

      Grainger really has a knack for teaching and mixing that with his background as a full-stack developer in New York, we all learned a massive amount in a short period of time.

      My Ruby on Rails progressed from 0 to a decent level, as well as my knowledge of JavaScript (+ JQuery, React etc...). But I think even overriding that is my understanding of programming logic.

      There're a lot of programming languages out there, and we spent a good amount of time throughout the course focusing not just on the languages, but on the logic behind how we can achieve what we're trying to do.

      Final point - we got the chance to study next door to Bogota Bootcamp's other operation which is Bogota Dev (an actual development agency). So we'd routinely grab coffee or have lunch with experienced developers, hear about their projects, and sometimes they'd even help with ours.

      The whole operation is a great community.

      Very thankful to Grainger and Nicolle for this entire experience.

      Some background me: I am student studying in the U.S. and majoring in computer science. I study theorical courses about computer science in university and want to learn more about coding in a practical way. That's the main motivation for me to attend this bootcamp in the summer. 

      Learning expereince: Granger, the teacher and founder of this bootcamp, is a professional progammer working in New York City before. He is not only knowledgeable about full stack development but also a greate teacher who uses a very orgnanized curriculum and explains things very clearly. In addition, the small class size is very small. There is only six people in total for this bootcamp, which means that I can get personal attention from Granger. I found this very helpful especially when I was working on individual project and needed assitance. 

      The environment at bootcamp: I really like the environment of the bootcamp. Coming to Colombia for the first time, Nicolle and Granger gave me much help in turns of finding a host family to stay with and checking in with me. In addition, everyone in the bootcamp is so friendly.  We have lunch, go to gym go hiking to lake Guatavita and dance together on weekend. I really enjoy the company and love the friends that I made in Colombia.

      In conclusion, I really love my expereince in this bootcamp. I learned a lot about full stack development(I made a game, a personal website, a group project and a individual final project) and enjoyed my time in Colombia.

      I thought long and hard before registering for a boot camp. I wanted to go somewhere else and focus on learning Ruby on Rails without breaking the bank, and that's exactly what I got. We spend the day, from 9 to 5 working really hard. We just finished week 7 and so far, we've covered Ruby, Rails, css, html, git, javascript. We've learned how to use Json, we started ReactJS, and we are not done yet. I like the fact that, as a preparation for the job market, we have to work on practical problems from a programming standpoint. The teacher is dynamic and good communicator, and the program is well-organized. Like in any bootcamp, you will not be an expert in 10 weeks, but you will gain plenty to have enough self-confidence to get your foot in the door.

      Este bootcamp me permitió adquirir habilidades de programación en un muy corto tiempo y mejorar mi perfil profesionalas y  aumentar las oportunidades para mi vida.

      Una de las cosas más importantes  que aprendí en este curso fue la de afrontar problemas de la cotidianidad  y resolverlos por medio  de la programción y hacerlo con una mirada global  utilizando las mejores herramientas y habilidades.

      El desarrolló de las clases y las metodologias  me parecieron  muy creativas y como Clombiano pude practicar mi ingles , hacer nuevos amigos de diferentes partes del mundo hacer proyectos junto a ellos.

      Excellent bootcamp, we started with the basic in programming and the subjects gets complex week by week, now I have the knowledge to create my own websites and deploy them in the internet. 

      The instructor has lot of experience in web development and knows how to explain complex stuff in ways that are easy to understand.

      The course so far has been an amazing learning experience. The instructor is not only a highly skilled web developer, but also a great teacher. The class size is small which means that you can get better individual attention and get your questions answered, or even get some help when you just cannot figure out something on your own!

      The course takes you from the very basics of programming all the way to building multiple full-fledged web apps with all the bells and whistles, even for complete beginners (either in programming in general or in the world of web development). Highly recommended.

      There is not a better option in Bogota, as simple as that, everything is 100% personalized.

      Even before you get into the Bootcamp itself Nicolle and G are already working on the best way to make every single student feel comfortable and make the best out of the Bootcamp. 

      And after the Bootcamp is finished they will keep working along with you to make sure you find the best job. 

      100% recommended!

      My experience in Bogota bootcamp was very good. Granger is a very good teacher, very patient and willing to give you help when you really need it. All BD staff is very cooperative and attentive to help you with any requirement. The content of the Boot Camp is very wide and useful, and although the course is so short, it gives you the necessary tools to have a very broad vision of the programming and to be able to create a decent web page.

      Bogota Bootcamp its the best choice u can make if u want to become hireable.

      The program structure its oriented such in that way, also if you don't get hired quickly, your coach may ofer you an intership, which gives u so much learning oportunities and also money reward.

      Granger and Nicolle are and admirable couple, they take care about us as a stundents so you keep up to date if u have issues coming to a class or something like that.

       

      I enjoyed the bootcamp a lot, got a job offer on my first interview while i was taking classes what is awesome. I forgot to say that price is more than affordable, its very cheap for what it worth.
