    Fantastic crew. Considering they all work for the college (CNM) and that this bootcamp is held to a collegiate standard, there is a certain level of vetting that takes place that you may not find at other bootcamps. For those taking a bootcamp towards an end-goal, here are my suggestions (please note that I have not taken the Java course) I suggest the PHP/Fullstack for CS Majors or Wordpress oriented peeps,

    the .Net for entrepreneurs/startups who want to "spin up" apps with a framework,

    and the Java for code-competent professionals that want to up their game, or CS students. Out of the gates each one will offer jobs at a different availability. Some have a huge gap between the Jr level and the Senior level, and some have a very strong mid-level range but few Jr level. Based on my observation, the PHP or Java course will compliment a CS degree very well; however, PHP offers more jobs than Java, but at a much lower pay bracket (Mostly Wordpress stuff). The irony is that PHP is easy to get into, but has lower paying mid-level availability when compared to Java. If you are code savvy, taking the Java may result in finally being worth decent money, but if you over estimate yourself you may come out of it not quite good enough. As I said, a CS degree would greatly compliment either of these. If you already know wordpress, the PHP course may be a solid bet because you will gain value in the wordpress sector by being able to create plugins, etc. The PHP course also seems to have the most "front-end", design oriented lessons as well. The .Net is a different story all together. It is part time and is far more "startup" oriented than the other two. It has some CS material, but the gist of the course is how to spin up a project quickly, easily, and it be able to scale. You don't even really need to know how EVERYTHING works (like in a CS degree), but rather how to IMPLEMENT something that works. I would compare this to "Ruby on Rails" but .Net being a much better framework than Rails in the long run. There are also tons of jobs as this is a Microsoft stack and every company and their mother needs more of these devs. At the end of the day, this is nothing more than my own observation and interpretation, and should not be the deciding factor. Contact the staff, talk to the professors, and you will quickly figure out which one suites you best. Point being, there is a course for anyone. In regards to my results. I doubled my income after this bootcamp and I was already paid decently well as a Software Tester. My current role is a Software Engineer with the US Govn't. I graduated PHP mid 2017, landed the job Dec, 2017, and took the .Net course after landing the job as my PHP experience wasn't as relevant as C#/.Net, but the transferable CS and fullstack knowledge from the PHP course helped me extensively with landing the role.

  • Awesome course!

    I moved from Tulsa to Albuquerque to go to this boot camp. The instructors and staff at the boot camp are amazing they all go above and beyond what you'd expect even giving up there free time to help you work through a coding problem. I went to the boot camp that started in July 2016 and I've been so busy working since I graduated that it's taken me 5 months to find time to give them a review. I worked as a welder before this boot camp. I didn't have much experience using a computer and in 10 weeks I went from sweating in a weld shop all year to sitting in an office with a beautiful mountain view and building websites for a marketing company.

    Very complete boot camp. They teach you several languages, instructors provide great support and create a great working atmosphere, ancillary staff did great work at providing student with everything we need to finish the course. During the course they update you about job opportunities and internships to take advantage of and being in a classroom full of proper with different skills makes the experience very holistic. As couple of us ended up in an internship before the boot camp was finished. I couldn't ask for more.

    I was lucky enough to receive a scholarship to Deep Dive Coding. I spent 10 fairly grueling weeks not being able to make my car payment while I attended this program. In the end it was worth it. The program does have its flaws but, hey, welcome to the real world. 

    Some advice to future students is to get familiar with Github, basic HTML/CSS/BootStrap, PHPStorm, API's, ERD's and what a Framework is. You will use past capstones to help you with your capstone. I am not sure what the future cohorts will offer training wise but here is my github and it may still prove useful.

    Try not to get frustrated. There are many guest speakers and a mock interview process. I rebelled against them initially but in the end took a lot from the experience as a whole.

    Like most things in life - you will get a lot out of it if you put a lot of yourself into it.  The difference between this bootcamp and learning to code online is this:  You are paying for the opportunity to have experienced professionals guiding you who can answer your questions and give you feedback in person.  It is truly a bootcamp that starts off relatively easy and then quickly ramps up in intensity.  The course is prepared to give a student the elements necessary to be a well rounded web developer.  The languages taught are sought after and relevant right now.  In addition to learning to code - students are introduced into the tech buiness community and coached on networking, given job search guidance, and regular check-ins to make sure you aren't getting overwhelmed in the process.  After bootcamp students come out with a beginning portfolio, and an arsenal of knowledge and tools to continue growing their web development skills.

    Overall, I had a great experience at Deep Dive - the instructors were prepared and helpful, the curriculum was challenging but not impossible, and the environment was conducive to learning. My only complaint is that the professional development portion of the bootcamp lacked preparation for freelancing, which is a likely outcome for a student new to programming.

    The best things about this bootcamp: The instructors created a very challenging but very supportive learning environment. All three instructors put a lot of themselves into the course, care a great deal about the students, and are expert coders. The instructors are wonderful people, and really good teachers.

    The coding assignments, the work-along demos, and the team-based capstone projects were extremely good. The instructors were very good at constructing and leading those sorts of hands-on coding experiences.

    The worst things about this bootcamp: In the first three weeks, there were way too many lectures, and students spent way too little time coding. On several days, lectures took the entire 8 hours! All-day lectures are not an effective way to teach, because most students can't stay focussed on difficult technical material for that long while being passive. I was surprised that the curriculum was designed with so many lectures, since the instructors are not very good at lecturing, but they are great at leading hands-on, active-learning sorts of exercises.

    The course is very intense, as it should be, and there is a lot of material to cover in 10 weeks. However, the time taken for passive lectures could have been greatly reduced by simply organizing each lecture (and by spending less lecture time on jokes and trivial asides).  Also, the instructors could have used a "flipped classroom" approach, where students watch online lectures (e.g. from Lynda) at home, and nearly all of the class time is used for active, skill-based exercises.

    TL;DR  I learned a great deal by attending this bootcamp. The course has serious flaws, but the instructors have the skills they need to improve the course.

    I enjoyed the DDCB experience, however, for someone will very little programming experience going in it was difficult. I was lucky to be on a team that had some programming knowledge before coming to the class, otherwise I would have been lost. The instructors were great, there were times though where the main instructor went off on stories that took up more time than they should of. The curriculum was truly extensive, but we are given so little time on some subjects that it almost didn't feel like learning, we were exposed to a language then we were expected to go do it. Yes, they do expect you to learn on your own using documentation but it was hard to get help when it was needed. You will be doing a lot of the work on the weekends and I do highly recommend it, but good luck getting any of the instructors to respond to questions. Our group all met together on Saturdays which was extremely helpful. If you can, encourage your cohort to do the same, I think I had one of the best cohorts out there. The job assistance was extremely helpful and even now that I have graduated I am still getting notifications of jobs and internships. Can I say that I feel ready to go get a job after this program? No. What I can say is that they have opened the doors to a whole new world of possibilities and have given me a foundation which to continue learning from. I appreciate all the insight the instructors have given me, and I loved how great the staff was in my time at the camp. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would have to give this course a 7/10. Great people, just not great for those barely starting their programming journey.

    DDCB is a valuable, challenging program that can get you started in the tech industry. Like other bootcamps, it requires full commitment in order to reap the highest benefits. The career assistance is excellent - I was employeed in a month after I started looking for a job. There are also alternative options, paid internships and similar portofolio building opportunities that DDCB provides in order to help students bridge the gap in experience so they can be employable. 

    The course work is solid and you'll be exposed to fundamental principles of programming. Your best bet is to learn how to learn. You can't expect to be spoon-fed, but if you're willing to put in the time and effort you can graduate with enough knowledge and a polished portfolio piece to get you started. 

  • Sub-par program

    The Deep Dive coding bootcamp does a good job of exposing you to a lot of technical information. The problem is there's ALOT of behind the scenes magic that you aren't exposed to or that isn't even hinted at during the course so when you graduate you're left scratching you're head on things like database connections and other issues that are extremely relevant. 

    Also, Javascript is the number one programming language on github and most highly sought by employers, but we spent less than half of a day learning Javascript and learned some Angular as we went along but with little to no formal instruction. PHP was the extreme focus of the course but is harder and harder to find jobs in, especially in the Albuquerque area.

    The lead instructor is great, except he goes on lectures and rants that no where near deserve the time spent on them in relation to the importance of hands on learning needed to leave as a competent web developer. The assistant instructor was almost worthless as a technical assistant, as she was proficient in only front end languages and even then seemed lost or had an inability to explain some concepts with any understanding. 

    The time spent on "guest speakers" and non technical related things amounts to ALOT more of the course than you would think, and keeps you from learning more technical issues later in the course when you are in deeper technical water. 

    Another big issue I had with the camp, especially in retrospect was that everytime you had a technical problem to overcome the instructor(s) would basically just fix the problem with little to no explaining overall. Also, the camp makes ALOT of assumptions about your technical background where it comes to programming. The problem is, many come into the camp with little to no background and don't get a thorough understanding of some pretty basic programming concepts. 

    Job placement or assistance seems almost non-existent unless you're friends or close to the people passing on the assitance emails and opportunities. I think the opportunites should be much less discrimantory and have heard from other graduates that they feel the same. 

    After meeting and speaking with many graduates and following their quest for employment in a casual manner, I'm sure that Deep Dive mispresents the employment numbers and opportunities that graduates have.
