    I'm surprised about the high ratings for this course. I paid $10,000 to work with very little help or guidance. I would suggest if you are interested in this course to save money and check out an udemy course first. You can find many with the same curriculum that craft academy offers and also have a community connected with them so you aren't alone while completing the online course.
    It's nice how wide the curriculum is. You do learn about other areas in a developers career but it's not enough to justify taking the course in my opinion. 
    They say the have a money back guarantee but it is near impossible to qualify for it, so be weary.
    The instructors seemed to have favorite students and didn't want to help the struggling students which is the opposite of how a class should run.
    Now I'm out a ton of money and it feels like I paid to just get yelled out and be confused and lost for 12 weeks. 
    There is also no help in finding a job. The "help" they give is a meeting on job interviews and the questions you may be asked in said interviews. 
    I'm bummed I had such a bad experience with this course but I feel they gave up on me halfway through.It
     made me never want to code ever again and I don't think I will ever try to get back into coding.

    After 16 years in the same industry I decided that it was time to do something else. I fell for Craft Academy since it was hands on programming from day one. I enjoyed the setup with pair programming because it gives you a good practice to work with different people, share ideas and help each other out. Even though I was informed before I started that it was going to be hard I could not imagine how hard it turned out to be. At the end things started to fall into place and I realized how much you can actually learn during 12 weeks and you see the results.

    I am glad I joined otherwise I wouldn’t have had the chance to meet this great group of people and coaches.
