    I chose to go to DigitalCrafts because I knew a few successful people who came out fo the program. The program is fast paced. Once it starts , you hit the ground running. Some people need more time than others on extra studying , especially the prep before starting the program. I suggest anyone going to DigitalCrafts thoroughly go through the prerequisite work before starting. You'll have a much easier time where you can use the full potential of the program. The teachers are extremely knowledgable and want you to succeed. Veronica was the name of my teacher and she was so impressive and so engaging. They have Developers In Residence , to help through out the classes and mentorships for those seeking extra help. Not to mention after hours help for when you need it. 
    After graduation there are learning tools and LOTS of help in the job search. They really want you to SUCCEED!

    I had a great experience at Digital Crafts. I self-taught for a while and learned a lot but had no direction as to how to apply and connect the different things I was learning. At DC I learned how all these different languages and frameworks work together and got a really well-rounded understanding of software development. My instructor, Veronica, was really great and SO knowledgeable. I made some really great friendships with my classmates and got very comfortable working in teams on projects and pair programming - a very valuable skill when looking for jobs down the road. Highly recommend!

    I have a background in construction and building, but had no experience in software. After attending DigitalCrafts online bootcamp I came out confident in the job market and with a tool belt filled with the latest cutting edge technologies and languages! My instructors really cared about my success in the course and were always willing to stay after hours to make sure I wasn't lost. Don't get me wrong, bootcamps are really hard, especially for someone with no background in software, but it's not impossible. DigitalCrafts is there to help you navigate through your new way of thinking in the tech world and will do everything in their power to ensure you are well prepared for the job search after.

    Overall a great and challenging experience. Coding in itself can be very daunting and seem almost impossible to figure out, yet over my 26 weeks at digital crafts I learned not only how to code but how to keep learning. The teachers were knowledgeable and human, by that I mean they understood that we have our own lives and can't always make time to code.

    I just graduated from the online flex full stack bootcamp.  Was pretty good.  I'm definitely a better developer now than when I started (I already work in the field), and they provide a lot of support for job search.  Would recommend.

    Curriculum:

    Job Assistance:
    I graduated from Digital Crafts in July 2020. I went into the cohort with very little coding experience and just completed the pre-requisites that were assigned before we started instruction. I started my first job as a software developer on August 5th, 2020. So Digital Crafts did supply me the tools and instruction necessary to actually get a job as a programmer. 

    Things I liked:
    My instructor was Mr.Azam and I really enjoyed being in his cohort. His teaching style was great for learning how to code. He would give you the basics and let you struggle with the code and figure out how to make it work on your own before asking for help. I believe this set me up for success in my job because I now have to figure every issue out without any external help. Also Mr.Azam did a good job teaching via zoom even though we planned on doing an in person class. 

    The material I learned was exactly what I am using every day at work. I work in React, Firebase, and node.js. The material they teach is relevant and modern. 

    Career week really helped me set up a decent portfolio and resume to have me confident enough to apply for jobs. Expect to spend hours job searching as they can set you up but you still have to do the searching. I found a job in the last week of class but I also spent 5-6 hours a day applying for jobs. 

    Overall I recommend Digital Crafts but expect to do a lot of work yourself as at the end of the day you get out of it what you put in. 

    Things I didn't like: 
    My only negative thing to say about Digital Crafts was I paid for a full-time in person course. Due to Covid we were unable to go in person until the last few weeks of my cohort. I felt like I didn't get my full tuitions worth as I was looking forward to using the facilities at the physical location and learning in person. I understand it is not the fault of Digital Crafts that covid restricted our in person studies, but I feel as though they should have discounted the price of everyone who was in our cohort. As we weren't provided exactly what we originally signed up for.

    Full curriculum that touches all aspects of the coding experience! You'll learn various languages like Python and Javascript while touching on frameworks like React, Node, and much more. They'll teach you to build real world application that you actually deploy! The staff is great and they're always one message away. They have people who can help you with building a resume, finding a job, further help outside of class time, and much more through Slack, a communication platform. The environment is engaging and you never feel left out, regardless of your skill level. All instructors and DIR's (developer in residence) are happy to help with any problems you face. 

    The community you have doesn't go away after you graduate. You'll be moved to an alumni channel where there are always people there to help and designated recruiters finding positions for you. The amount of help you get goes far beyond graduation and that was the best aspect of DigitalCrafts for me.

    Coding Bootcamps are not an easy thing. I had a great experience at DigitalCrafts. By the time I graduated my classmates became family. I think getting through the struggle together made us a lot stronger. If you are thinking about doing stop, take the decision to change your life. My recommendation is to do the pre-work mainly in Javascript and Node.

    The statement "culture eats strategy for breakfast" means that no matter how good your strategy is, it will not work without a good culture. DigitalCrafts has both strategy and culture. The curriculum is valuable: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React, Node, Express, AWS. By the time you're done, you'll be manipulating the DOM, (or the Virtual DOM if you work in React), wiring up backends to create interactive data-based websites, and deploying your work on the internet. You will get the content you so desperately need.

    But with DC you'll get a lot more. The people at DC make the difference. They know you. The instructors and teacher assistants are extremely supportive. Our instructor was dedicated to helping each student get to the next level, and I saw DigitalCrafts make hard decisions that demonstrated their commitment to student success.

    I had no prior coding experience except the coursework provided (by DigitalCrafts) prior to starting the class. The course is by nature fast-paced. You learn a lot in 4 months but by the end I felt I had a pretty good grasp of software development and had a great base for further growth as junior level developer. So much of this is just learning how to structure certain things and how to think about a problem and go about solving it. Once you have that ability you can easily pick up additional skills and techniques on your own. Having someone there to be able to easily point out, correct, and explain mistakes you make in the process early on is a big help vs trying to pick it up on something like an online course where you're by yourself. Class was 3 hours in the morning with a 1 hour lunch followed by 3 hours in the evening with nightly homework the first few months that tapered off as we got into project building later in the course.

    I was full-time online due to the covid pandemic and classes were taught via Zoom. Students had the option to go into private rooms on Zoom after a lesson to get clarification on the topic previously covered if needed.

    Pros
    Covered a wide range of topics that are relevant to what is in demand in the industry today with a curriculum that is regularly updated. Instructors very helpful and time was provided outside of class to review what we learned with one of the other instructors.

    Cons
    Course is fast-paced but that's the nature of the learning model and any bootcamp style coding course. We spent a few weeks covering Python at the start but after that we primarily used JavaScript for the remainder of the course. I felt like Python could have better used (or more often) along with Javascript.
