    12-week intensive Bootcamp

     This is the hands down best bootcamp that exists. We get access to not one or two, but four experts in the field! The course is very well structured, teaching the material the morning and spending the afternoon working on projects to solidify the leanings. During this time, there are always 3 instructors online ready to answer questions, provide further explanation, and guide when we get stuck. This way we get the perfect mix of learning independence, without getting stuck on problems f...

    Concordia Bootcamps 12 week full stack

    I signed up to the Bootcamp with a bit of experience in html/css/js and a variety of libraries because i was looking to make the jump to the tech world and wanted to start off as a developer. 
    The program I did, entirely done remotely, was well structured and well organized. The typical day consisted of a lecture between 1-2 hours, followed by an afternoon where we were left to our own devices to go through workshops to consolidate what was taught in the morning. The workshops were in...

    A new life in three months

    Our instructor started our bootcamp by announcing "you won't BELIEVE what you'll be able to do three months from now!" and I can absolutely confirm that he was right. As a novice coder (with only the experience of the assignment I submitted for my application to the program), within three months I learned enough to design and build websites and apps from start to finish, on my own. The instructor was enthusiastic and approachable and clearly passionate about web development. The technica...

    Full-Stack Immersive Night & Weekends

    I wanted to make a career switch, the most efficiently and quickly possible. I would never regret my choice. I was able to do the bootcamp beside my job, it was a lot of personal investment, but totally doable. The exercises very rewarding, and the lessons very complete, gives you the skill to make real end-to-end web apps. The content is updated according to the industry (TA's and lecturers are professional developers). Less than 3 months after graduated, I landed a full-stack position....

    Works as Advertised!

    I enrolled with Concordia Bootcamps after leaving my previous job to pursue an interest in programming, and the entire experience was pretty much everything I could have hoped for. In a matter of weeks I went from having almost zero coding knowledge to being able to design and create entire apps and code the servers that ran them.
    My cohort started out with everyone attending a physical classroom (remember those?) but had to go online about halfway though our course because of the pan...

    Almost Impossible to Fail!

    If you're looking to pursue a career as a Web Developer, I strongly recommend choosing Concordia Bootcamps. I happened to be a one of the students whose Bootcamp was disrupted by our beloved pandemic. Regardless, the staff at CB were quick to adapt to the crisis, doing everything they could to help students like me succeed. Though it took some adjustment, we moved to Zoom lectures, and had access to our Technical Coaches via Zoom (and a cool online queue app they made in their efforts to...

    Good experience for career change

    I really enjoyed the program and it helped me on the career change. I have the working experiences on other industry and will like to reset a new start after moving to Montreal.  I have some experiences on programming. This program guided me into a modern framework  of web development. The skills and knowledges learned are very transferrable to other programming language and framework. The lectures and workshops are well designed so that the students can learn and then practice. The day ...

    Supercharged career booster

    I've been a self taught programmer for close to 10 years before taking that chance of attending the "Full-Stack Immersive" bootcamp. Maybe I should have done it sooner... Or maybe it just was how my path had to be. If you think about attending too, just make sure you are ready to work hard as hell! It is a 8 days a week training. And over night, you will dream about console logging variables to find what exactly is "undefined". So my best advise to you is you should plan on doing nothing...

    I loved it!

    I loved my experience at Concordia Bootcamps!   I had a great teacher (*Jacques, you are the best! Thank you for everything!*), and I loved our TCs (*Micah, Richard, Michael, I already miss you guys!*) :)   Everyone was very patient and did their best to explain everything to us. It wasn’t only coding support but also a psychological one.   During the Bootcamp, I had tons of homework...

    nice experience

    I didn't have much expectation when I signed up for the program. I have a business background and I just simply want to learn more about web developement. But it was a good suprise. The class is well organised and the professor is amazing (Jacque you are the best!!!!!) TC is great and everyone is driven. of course there is room to improve but everyone is listening and try to make it works better. 

    I switch to a web developer career after this program which is unexpected but again...

    Yes you can become a developer within 3 months

    After over 3 years working as an industrial engineer I decided to become a developer. It was hard for me to imagine how we could become a developer in 3 months but I decided to trust decode and see what would be the result after working hard all summer. And surprisingly all the teaching tools provided were so well thought out. Even though the rhythm was fast-paced I felt that it was a perfectly timed course. The instructor Jacques is passionate and really smart, he knows how to communicate a...

    Successful career change

    I joined the bootcamp because I wanted a career change quickly. At first, I was a little skeptical about the program but on my first day, I was already impressed by Jacques’ (head of education and instructor) knowledge and teaching approach. Personally, I would have appreciated a little more documentation to support the theory learned in class but that is probably just me. The teaching assistants were also very highly skilled and to see them so passionate and efficient at their job was v...
