- Challenging, Rewarding, Great Investment- 8/20/2020Dana K. • Graduate • Course: Full Time Software Development • Campus: Milwaukee • Verified via LinkedInA year before I began the bootcamp, I had graduated with a degree in IT, during my studies I had decided that I wanted to go into software development. However, I had only had one class on Java and trying to teach yourself code and software development while working full time is not a viable plan.I had been casually looking at DevCodeCamp for about 9 months but was always afraid to pull the trigger and quit my job. When Covid hit and I began feeling unsafe at my current job, I decided it was time. It was by far the best investment I have made.I’m sure it was a challenge to move from classroom based to a fully online program during this time and replicate the same feel. However, they did a great job of keeping you connected as a class and always feeling like you had the support and help you needed. The instructors were available in an instructor’s chat and if they weren’t able to answer it over chat, they would hop on Zoom to help you solve your problem.You are immediately immersed in the world of software development from day one. You receive lectures, hands-on training, and develop problem solving skills. From the very beginning you are taught to think like a coder, you are given some information but to complete the projects there is a lot of research and problem solving on your own. You are encouraged to try and solve the problems yourself but are also encouraged and expected to ask questions if you are stuck. It provides you with a lot of real-world experience as you begin to enter your new career.After graduation, you are provided job hunt resources such as technical interview practice, resume review and much more. As someone new to the field, upon receiving my first request for a technical interview I immediately reached out for some help and Mike T developed a mock technical interview for me. I am happy to report that a month and a half after graduation I received a job offer.If you are having hesitations, I promise that this program is a great investment that sets you up for success in the future.
- Challenging, Rewarding Work!- 8/13/2020Danielle D. • Junior Quality Assurance Analyst • Graduate • Course: Full Time Software Development • Campus: Milwaukee • Verified via LinkedInI went into devCodeCamp with zero coding experience and 3 months after graduation, have received my first job offer as a developer! I have always been interested with tech, gaming, and computers maybe slightly more than the average person, but all of my career experience was in the customer service industry and medical field. I decided to look into this bootcamp because an old friend of mine had graduated from the program a few years back and spoke highly of it. I am so very happy that I took the leap to make a change for myself! The program is challenging and moves fast, but the instructors are there to support whenever you feel like you are "stuck." The curriculum does push you to start thinking like a developer right away and gets you feeling confident about self-learning. The instructors have done a great job with all the information and experience fit into the program without being overwhelming for someone who has never programmed before. My particular class had experienced the in-person campus as well as going remote about half-way through due to Covid. My unsolicited advice for anyone ready to invest in themselves with this bootcamp would be to dive in to the projects, ask as many questions as you can, and remember to give yourself breaks when needed!
- A very rewarding experience- 8/13/2020Michael Backes • Graduate • Course: Full Time Software Development • Campus: Milwaukee • Verified via LinkedIn- The program at devCodeCamp has a very well thought out and holistic curriculum that gives you the programming knowledge you would expect while still building up other practical skills you need as a developer(working in and managing groups, using Scrum/Agile practices for meetings, time management and timeboxing, etc.).
- The lectures are very clear and give you the information you need without being overlong.
- The instructors make themselves very easily available to provide help and guidance when you need it, though as you become more capable they will expect you to handle most things on your own so that you will not become over-reliant on others and run to your manager for advice on every snag you encounter.
Overall, the experience was both very informative and very enjoyable and I would recommend it if you are looking for a path to a new career.
- Covid times were fine- 8/13/2020Tony Seichter • Full Stack Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Time Software Development • Campus: Milwaukee • Verified via GitHubdevCodeCamp was great. In the past, I have tried to teach myself to program multiple times. After a day or two I would lose my drive, or get bored or frustrated, and walk away. Now I am a full stack developer.
At devCodeCamp, the pace was really engaging. They started us with basic syntax and logic puzzles, to shape up our brains into program logic mode, and after a week of that we hit the ground running making simple command console games while we learned about methods, classes, and data structures.
I was in the first remote class, because Covid. I was pretty concerned because I knew I wanted the classroom environment to keep me focused, but it ended up great, morning lectures got me out of bed and working, and the format worked really well, no raised hands or waiting for instructors to be available, we just dropped a message in the instructor group chat and they were always ready to help.
I want to give a shout-out to the instructors, They were the best. I have one memorable morning where I couldnt sleep and got up at some crazy early time in the morning, pulled out my code. I was having a problem, threw a question in the instructor chat, and pivoted to a different part of the project figuring I would hear back in a few hours, maybe 7:30 at the earliest. Nope. It wasn't even 5 in the morning yet when an instructor popped on and pointed me in the right direction to solve my difficulty.
Another time I pasted hundreds of lines of code to the instructors and just said "its not working" and David jumped in and started digging though it asking me a couple questions that told me he was definitely doing his best to find my bug. The instructors are dedicated and want the students to succeed more than I think some of the students themselves wanted to succeed.
We did a lot of solo work, some group work, and it was a grand old time, if frustrating. I think that frustration is just part of programming.
My biggest advice going in is never be afraid to take five, go outside and throw a ball at your dog, or take a few minute reddit break. I had quite a few naps. If you can't manage and shed frustration you're going to burn out. But come back to the code till it works, if you leave things broken over night it can be hard to remember what you were doing.
Get in there, have fun with it, but remember it's a $17,800 course, treat it like you're in a cubicle at a hundred dollar an hour job, you will succeed and make more that in the first year out.
- Wonderful Instructors, Great Program- 8/12/2020Christy Yang • Graduate • Course: Full Time Software Development • Campus: Milwaukee • Verified via LinkedInI went to DevCodeCamp with zero experience and by the end of the course I felt really good about where I was and where I was going. The instructors are absolutely wonderful. They are super helpful, always encouraging students to ask questions and extremely welcoming. No one is discriminated nor is left out of the one-on-one hands on learning experience from these instructors. All the guidance I received was very positive. When I felt myself struggling, it’s like they knew the right steps to take to help me understand and move forward in a way that is sort of personal to who you are and how you learn. I attended DevCodeCamp a little before the pandemic hit and ended up having to go remote half through the course. The change worked for me and I never once felt like the one-on-one experience and teachings disappeared. It actually felt like they reached out more frequently to make sure we were all doing okay. Three months after graduation, I received a job offer. Mind you, this is during a pandemic. The school helped me with the job that I got and I could not be more grateful for all their help and assistance. devCodeCamp changed my life and if you’re looking for a bootcamp to attend, look no further.
- Great Experience, love the instructors!- 5/13/2020Aaron Madison • Software Developer • Graduate • Verified via LinkedInAbsolutely awesome experience, would recommend to anyone looking to break into the Software Development field. Their curriculum is very in depth and fast moving, everything works together to bring you to a deep understanding of the stack their working in. The instructors are awesome, it's a perfect mix of serious knowledge and fun wittiness. The in class environment is great, the building is very accessible and easy to work in. Overall an amazing experience for anyone who is looking for a new career, or just looking to pick up some programming skills.
- Awesome Experience- 5/11/2020Justin Haldeman • Graduate • Course: Full Time Software Development • Campus: Milwaukee • Verified via GitHub
- Experience- 5/9/2020Victor Meza • Graduate • Course: Full Time Software Development • Campus: Milwaukee • Verified via GitHubWorking closely with instructors that actually cared about your projects. My personally assigned instructor Michael H, took all the necessary steps to in-depth explain programming principles, good writing conventions and conceptual background of some algorithms and data structures.
For our personal projects Michael T. Helped tremendously, helping guide my decision making and project direction when things inevitably got complicated. While at times some concepts were difficult to grasp; the instructors made an effort to go over the concepts again in a different way to really ensure we're ready to implement them in the real world.
While at times, it was frustrating they would have limited involvement; the skill of learning how to research on your own will set me up to learn endless programming languages, with the added benefit of having them as a support team for concept that are increasingly difficult to grasp.
- Any experience to Software Developer- 5/5/2020Jeff A Cate • Graduate • Course: Full Time Software Development • Campus: Milwaukee • Verified via GitHubNot what I was expecting but definitely worth the work. Their process of retraining the mind to think like a developer is pretty impressive. Including whiteboard challenges into a fully immersive and intense agile environment gets you ready for whatever the future holds.
- Look no further!- 1/10/2020Amelia Szymanek • Graduate • Course: Full Time Software Development • Campus: Milwaukee • Verified via LinkedIn
The best advice I received before my course began was to fully immerse myself into the program because the time flies when you're at devCodeCamp. By choosing to immerse myself and soak up as much information as possible, I know my time spent here was worthwhile. I cannot believe the amount of personal growth I experienced throughout the course. I am grateful for the instructors and leadership for their support throughout the course.
- Check this place out!- 1/10/2020Andrew Szymanek • Graduate • Graduate • Course: Full Time Software Development • Campus: Milwaukee • Verified via LinkedIn
The instructors and VP are very much interested in your learning and success. They provide assistance even outside of normal work hours if you are working on a project and trying to meet a deadline. I came here as a veteran using the GI Bill and the process to use that resource was absolutely seamless. I can't say enough good things about this place, so please give this one a look!
- Great experience- 12/10/2019Jake Gambino • Full Stack Engineer • Graduate • Course: Full Time Software Development • Campus: Milwaukee • Verified via LinkedIn
Summary: I went from working in janitorial work for almost a decade, with minimal development/coding experiences to accepting a job at a Fortune 500 company as a Full Stack Engineer. The instructors are great. They are relatable, accessible, and generally fun to be around.
The funding options seem to be very flexible, especially with the ISA option (income share agreement). My plan was to attend devCodeCamp back in late 2017/early 2018, but I couldn't make the funding work. When they introduced the ISA as an option, I returned and am very glad I did. With the ISA, they only get paid if I get paid over a certain threshold and there are limits (both in time and amount).
The program was challenging and engaging. Every time I felt like "I got this! No problem!" we would get a new assignment and I'd be right back to "I guess I have no clue what I'm doing." It's a constant up and down as you are introduced new topics. And make no mistake, there are a LOT of areas covered.
After graduation, the support was excellent. When I received my Associate's Degree (in a different field), it felt like I graduated and got thrown to the pits. This was NOT the case at devCodeCamp. In the month it took me to interview/accept a position, I was in constant contact with the individuals involved with the program, including being able to stay in the classroom and continue working/applying for jobs.
The environment they cultivated is truly impressive. It's collaborative, challenging, and there's never a dull moment. It is hard work and some weeks will require you to work beyond the normal class hours (looking at you, capstone projects), but it is worth it. With my new role, I will be almost doubling the salary I was earning just 16 weeks ago (12 for program, 4 to find job).
