    The career pivot that went beyond my expectation

    Honnestly before doing the bootcamp I wasn't sure what I should expect from it, either some more technical knowledge on my resume which would have been valuable (for a career Web- related)  or enough skills / confidence / pleasure to start a new career. 

    That was the later. 120%. 

    The curriculum (React / Vanilla JS / Node ) where we solely focused on Javascript was one of the reason I choose this bootcamp over the other ones in MTL. Why ? because I trully believe it off...

    Well worth the investment

    Decode is the perfect fit for anyone looking to get a job as a junior web developer. Everything about the course is relevant and practical. 

    When it came to job applications, Kevin was outstanding in coaching me through the process. He is extremely well connected in Montreal and which is a huge advantage for decode students. I was fortunate enough to land a job a few weeks after graduating.

    To make the most of your experience, I would strongly suggest you follow many of...

    Learn by doing

    DecodeMtl does exactly what it promises. It is a high intensity bootcamp, where they will provide all the necessary tools and resources for you to come out as a competent web developer. They provide you with great instructors, resources and teaches you by making you write lots and lots of code. I am a software engineering student and had a fair bit of coding experience before joining the bootcamp (not in JavaScript though). So naturally, at first I was worried if this course was too basic for...

    Relevant and Effective

    I had a solid experience with Decode despite having very little programming experience. The stacks that were taught are extremely relevant in my opinion. I landed a job as a Wordpress developer after graduating, and with my experience in sales and management, I feel comfortable leading a team of developers.

    Pros:

    -Intense and gruelling; best way to learn

    -Project-based (you're writing code all the time and producing original applications)

    Great experience.

    Good experience. A high value was taken from only 8 weeks of the Bootcamp. Good assistance, and job application support.  Great location and overall coding vibes.

    Big promises, actually delivered.

    I was skeptical about bootcamps in general. Comp sci students take a minimum of three years to be ready to apply for software development jobs.

    However, the 8 week program really gave me enough practical knowledge to be able to do well in the position I'm in now (funded, high-growth startup). To my own surprise, I passed the technical interview "with flying colours". Most comp sci graduates finish school with really good theoretical knowledge of how to build algorithms and the li...

    ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐, would decode again

    TL;DR - Before Decode, I had no experience with coding. 10 weeks later, I had a job. 

    If you're considering DecodeMTL, I would highly recommend it. There is seemingly endless ways of learning web-development, but for me Decode made the most sense.

    Decode is an intense two months, but if you throw yourself into it, you will be in a good position to succeed afterwards.

    Everyday, you have tutorials for several hours in the morning, and ...

    Awesome Bootcamp!

    My experience at DecodeMTL was extremely rewarding. I would recommend it to anyone who is looking to launch their career in web development, regardless of your background. The class size is small and very dynamic. You will learn a lot and work a lot - expect to spend your days and evenings there. If you are looking for an easy pass into learning how to code, this is definitely not it. Decode will teach you everything you need to know, and have a really good support system with the TA's, bu...

    In-Depth Bootcamp Review

       HOW THE BOOTCAMP WORKS 

       In the full time version, you study Monday to Friday, with about 8 hrs of class/instructor help per day. You start with short lesson, somewhere between 1 to 3 hrs of lecture. You are then assigned a workshop which is usually due before the beginning of the next class. There are also a few major projects to complete. While projects are assigned, workshops are not assigned. So at any given time, you are expected to be doing either workshops or projects,...

    changed my life

    When they say the course is intense, they are not kidding around. I do wish they were a bit more organized and cohesive between the instructors but over all the experience helped me to grow as a person and I did learn a LOT of new information. 

    However, I would have to say that the best part for me was definitely the career services after the program had ended. I worked with a woman named Penny and she really made me feel supported and heard. She went above and beyond to make sure...

    Hard but worth it!

    Prior to this course, I had never written a single line of code. I think most people in this course would definitely agree that the course is hard! It was one of the most difficult things I have ever done in my life. However, it was well worth it. The instructors are incredibly supportive and if you're giving your best, they are with you every step of the way. While it was a lot of work I could see myself learning and building on previous skills. What I ended doing for my final project w...
