I was in the Android Development Bootcamp that ended on the 29th of March. All I can say is that the course poorly planned and terribly executed. I had reservations going in but I chose to believe the things Charles Ashely told us. Ultimately he let myself and rest of the class down and this course was largely a waste of my time.
Cultivating Coders is currently in the completion phase of their Android course in Albuquerque NM. Each student spend approximately $7500.00 -7900.00 for this course.
Charles Ashely was forewarned early on that the instructor was effectively not versed in Android technology, all the computers provided as part of the purchase totally failed in its ability to handle the software, the instructor was often absent, did not fulfill promises such as supplying comprehensive write-ups for material he did not teach, did not supply any (none at all) teaching material, no homework, no practice on what little was taught...the list goes on. Charles Ashely's answer to this problem was to present himself to the entire class to criticize the students for "being the worst class....hey, you came to me not the other way around".....
Weeks later, Charles Ashely still had not addressed the concerns. Finally and without any choice, our class signed a petition against him and the instructor (John Borden) asking for an explanation, a refund and / or solution.
Charles Ashely now wont even present himself to the class to at least offer an explanation. This is not a business person doing good for himself and others. Charles found a cash-cow and as long as he gets your money, the rest is not consequential. This is the impression he leaves. He has not addressed the class petition against him.
Make sure your contract allows you a refund in the event the same occurs to you. More so, attend a program from a well established entity and with a respected reputation.
Cultivating Coders and Charles Ashely are not worth the time or effort. Do not attend.
The first week I thought I would die..but the teachers really were receptive to my needs and took an active role into helping me build my dream site and my dream future...I now will have a chance to have a future where I can be financally succure and live a better quality of life. I now have a way to take my talents and reach the dreams and asperations that could never have been reached without this class...Thank You so much for believing in me=)
If you want to learn a skill set that will reward you with a great career, Cultivating Coders is the way to go. I plan to continue studying coding with the help of my mentors, Charles and John who I now call my friends.
Great intro course to coding! I went in knowing almost nothing about writing code. I came out with a firm grasp on building and launching responsive web sites. The teacher/student interaction was great. Help was always readily available even after hours! the networking also will be very helpful to my future as a web developer. Thank you John, Charles, Krieg, Chase, Dana, and Kyle for all the knowledge!
This is one of the very amazing an awesome bootcamp that i ever took. I now have the ability to work on some computer/ websites, knowing how to start one up from scratch an making it look the way that i want it to look I have some good skills in the backend of website building all thanks to this bootcamp. This is one job that i would have never seen myself in, but all thanks to my great instructors i now a Web developer.
I've really enjoyed taking the Cultivating Coders Bootcamp classes in Farmington, New Mexico. Learning about mobile and web developing curriculum has changed my life in a way that there are more opportunties than I have had before I graduated the course. I'm really thankful for this opportunity to help my family become financially stable. Also being able to take and share this knowledge of computer coding to my family members whom may be interested in the program is a true honor.
I strongly recommend the Cultivating Coders Bootcamp program for any individual who is interested in computer coding. It will change your life for the better, and more opportunities will be available.
Ahe'ee, thank you to the Cultivating Coders Instructors and fellow classmates for the love & support to get through the 1st 8 week coding bootcamp together, and for that I am truly grateful. .
I have to admit Cultivating Coders has given me the opportunity to learn web designing and development that i couldnt in my area due to lack of financial aid and courses offered in my area especially to Native Americans. It has changed my life in such a way that i will never forget the choice i made to learn these skills that i never thought i would learn.
I would highly recommend Cultivating Coders to anyone that wants to learn something new, interested or want a change in their life.
I believe i will stick with Coding throughout my future since nowadays coding is everywhere.
This was literally the best decision I've made in my entire life. I knew what coding was, but I was not familiar with it. Just due to the fact that I was never introduced to it. Coding is an art, and I'm a very artistic person. So I'm more than thankful that cultivating coders has given me the chance to and provided me an extraordinary skill set. I only plan to extend my knownlege in coding with the help of my amazing mentor's at cultivating coders.
The best career decision I've eve made.
This unbelieveable curriculum is fast paced but, full of much needed infromation. Cultivating Coders has the best instructors and support. Taking the leap and join the 8 week program has changed my life.
I was offered a postion with one of Cultivating Coders partners just a few weeks after my graduation. I would be crazy not to reccomend Cultivating Coders to any driven indiviual who is looking to take thier coding skills to the next level.
Cultivating Coders Bootcamp was everything I expected and more. The course curriculum was well thought out and implemented. The 8 week bootcamp was exciting, challenging, and rewarding. Learning the most I could during the 8 weeks provided a foundation where I can begin my career in web application development. I am grateful for being apart of the first graduating class of Cultivating Coders.
Totally blessed to have the opportunity to take these 8 week coding classes, it has open new doors to my future, not just for myself but within my family and community. Thanks for the knowledge you have passed on to us Gallup instructors, you guys are awesome!
