    Education Version 2.0

    Okay, okay, I get it.  You're looking at these reviews and you're confused.  There's great reviews, good reviews but with a lot of caveats, bad reviews, etc.  I'm trying to look at this from the approach of someone considering the program, and it all seems pretty overwhelming.

    I'm here to help.  I'm going to focus less on if Bov Academy is a good program or a bad program.  In fact, I'll get this out of the way: if that's what you're looking for, it's really good.  End review.  <...

    I had no idea I was about to get so many great surprises :)

    A bit about me

    I was an above average employee in an IT firm with more than 5 years of experience in my field before I joined Bov Academy. One very fine day, as I was researching upon a few articles for my work at my job, when I stumbled upon this very good article on http://javascriptissexy.com. 

    There was this side note about Bov Academy (called Modern Developer at that time). Though I couldn't check it out at that time due to my deadline to complete ...

    Truly, it is the education you need

    I have received about three emails so far, with an average of 8 questions about Bov Academy (BA), which I replied to. I thought I should write my review here as well to help anyone else who may need some information about BA.

    Me, before joining BA

    I was working as a Teaching Assistant at a University, facilitating courses on Website Design and Databases. I was covering the absolute introductory basics in these courses. I wanted to teach the advanced top...

    The best thing that happen to me

    I am developer with number of years in the field. My latest skills is a backend developer utilizing Java language and technologies. I wanted to learn and work as Modern Full stack web developer. I have finished several MOOC courses. However, I did not get any knowledge. I was trying to educate myself, but have been overwhelmed by information and could come with reasonable plan. I have found Bov Academy (Modern Web Developer) and never wanted to look back. It is the best thing that happen t...

    For someone who wants to make a career change.

    This program is perfectly fit me. I have a fulltime job and I want to make a career change and advance to Web Development industry. I can spend 2-3 hours a day and spend whole weekend to study.

There are many exercises for you in each chapter and end of chapter you will write one full length article for what you have learnt. It's really tough, but you will gain more knowledge and have a deep under...

    A life changing experience and an unmatched curriculum

    Bov Academy puts in place a curriculum that sets it apart from other traditional schools, bootcamps, and "learn to code courses". Thus, setting its students apart from the rest of the crowd. From the structure, courses, and projects you work on, everything is there to ensure you become the best programmer you can be. Not only did I learn the technology and gain the knowledge offered by the Bov Academy staff, I gained the confidence and tools needed to become a very proud engineer. Ev...

    Getting Better

    When I came into the program I didn't know much about JavaScript or HTML/CSS for that matter but I wanted to pursue a more rewarding career. I ran into the program as I was studying some JavaScript and saw that it was a much cheaper option compared to most Bootcamps for the amount of material that is covered. The courses have been mostly great with a few hiccups but feedback has been taken into account and has been made better.  The bottom line is this, Bov Academy will teach you the thing...

    Beyond the crappy bootcamps.

    I haven't graduated yet due to my serious time constraints and I am a member of the first cohort. I came in not knowing ANYTHING. We have a wide variety of people in our cohort in regards to skillsets- from newbies who want a structured path to follow, to senior developers who need to fill in the gaps in their knowledge. Technology moves fast and you must always be learning, always reading, and expect that the duration of this course pales in comparison to the duration of your career, ...

    It's not for everyone.

    I’m a student of BovAcademy. I began officially on January 2016. I will be referring to the program as BA henceforth.

     

    The Start of BA

    The program experienced delays at the beginning since not everything was ready, but I accepted that as I was one of the first cohort willing to test out the program and give feedback so that it may grow to become a top-tier coding program. During this time, most of us were ready for a fun-packe...

    Takes time, but it's worth it.

    The program is pretty comprehensive. I originally signed up for the Advanced Front End Engineer track, but I have now signed up to continue in the Backend Developer track as well.   I have been a front end dev for over 15 years, and am taking this course to fill in gaps I have not learned on my own. I highly recommend this course, and actually have referred a coworker into the program as well. From what I know about bootcamps, most I h...

    Thorough curriculum and supportive staff

     

    Before I begin, I want to say that I am a member of the first cohort of Bov Academy students. As members of the first class of students, we have naturally experienced many of the growing pains and frictions one might expect from a new, untested program. I am more forgiving of the program's flaws considering these circumstances.

    The curriculum is unbelievably thorough, and, in my opinion, is really what sets Bov apart from other sc...
