    A lot of people ask, "Why go to code school? All of this information is available online, there are so many great tutorials… Why spend all this time and money just to learn content that’s all available online?”

     

    Based off of this logic, you could learn rocket science online too.

     

    One of the most invaluable parts of attending DigitalCrafts was not learning the content itself. It’s true. You can find all this stuff online in tutorials, documentation, videos, walkthroughs, etc. What you will not find is the community and atmosphere of learning that you enter into every single hour of every single day; you and the others in your cohort will be in an environment that encourages learning and discovery - every single hour of every single day. You will have access to a wizard of an instructor that can help you debug your code - every single hour of every single day.

     

    You can see where I’m going with this. When you attend DigitalCrafts, you’re not paying for content to be shoved into your brain; you can get that anywhere. You’re giving yourself access to a learning environment like no other. Every day for four months, you will be immersed in an environment that allows you to stretch your technological and creative brain muscles, where there is no hindrance of other distractions or subject matters. For all intents and purposes, your job while attending the course is to learn how to code. How awesome is that?!?

     

    This brings me to my next point - The greatest thing you learn in DigitalCrafts is not the stuff you’re learning; it’s learning how to learn effectively in a fast-paced, constantly evolving atmosphere. With many software development/engineering jobs, employers aren’t necessarily looking for someone who knows every single technology the project uses. They’re looking for someone who can learn. At DigitalCrafts, this process and ideology is instilled in students from the get-go.

     

    Now, I know I said it’s not about the content, but, let’s be real, it does matter, and the DigitalCrafts staff have done their homework in that regard. The curriculum is relevant and on top of trends, but also provides the foundations needed to understand how the latest and greatest technologies work.

     

    I will be honest - if you’re not 100% invested or are not interested in software development, don’t take the course. It won’t magically change your view or interest. But if you do have an innate desire to learn, a fascination with technology, and are willing to put in A LOT of hours of learning, debugging, and coffee, this course is for you. And if this course is for you, don’t think twice!

    I just graduated from DigitalCrafts about a week ago. While I have taken classes on and off, I have no college degree, and have worked in the restaurant industry for around five years. I wanted to do something more with my life and after some free online classes, programming seemed like a great direction. I was tired of taking college classes that didn't interest me just for required credits, so after doing some research, a bootcamp looked like a great alternative.

    Looking at the website and during the application process, I came in thinking I would be learning a lot of python, since I had taught myself some and found it interesting. During an interview with the team, they mentioned python is just used to introduce some core programming concepts. We spent two weeks in python, then moved to javascript the remainder of the bootcamp. This is a web development course, so make sure that is what you are interested in.

    I also took the comptuer science elective course, which I think was very important knowledge to know in general, but not super applicable to writing code in javascript. After graduation, you could be getting a job writing in languages other than javascript so having the computer science knowledge will be a good start.

    DigitalCrafts was a great experience all around. My instructor, Chris Aquino, is not only extremely knowledgable about the material, but is a wonderful teacher, which can be more important at times. The student services and operations teams were always there to make sure I was productive and comfortable, and constantly giving me opportunities to connect more with the coding community and potential employers. I feel extremely confident about finding a job that I can create a career out of.

    DigitalCrafts was a great experience for me overall. I was a true beginner when it came to coding and computer science, I started coding about 2-3 months before the first day of class. Those 2-3 months I felt like I had learned a solid amount through self teaching, but it was absolutely nothing compared to the amount of knowledge I have gained through this four month course. Paul who was the teacher for our cohort did a fantastic job and is very knowledgable in all of the topics covered and more and there wasn't a single problem that I had that he could not solve. That is where I believe the value of the class truly lies. When you are trying to self teach yourself coding (especially if you're a true beginner), then you will inevitably run into many problems and get stuck often. While you could try for hours to push through the problems, sometimes you just won't be able to figure out the problem. Having someone who can clearly explain to you what the problem and solution is really does help a lot and I feel like that was very beneficial to accelerate the learning process. Also, having a structured course outline that covers many of the skills that are in demand in the job market was great too, as I would have been pretty lost trying to learn these topics on my own and may have take well over a year to do it on my own. I think DigitalCrafts is an exceptional school and in my opinion the best investment I have made in my life up to this point and I am feeling great about what the future holds for me with my newly gained skills.

    After years as an academic, I decided it was time for a career change. So in September 2017, I began DigitalCrafts 16 week full stack immersive bootcamp in Houston, TX. By any measure, I was an absolute beginner when I started the program. Nevertheless, DigitalCrafts comprehensive curriculum, excellent instructor (Paul Bailey), and top-notch job-support team provided everything I needed to gain the necessary skills to land a full time job as a JavaScript/Node.js developer before the course ended.

    If you're considering enrolling in a coding bootcamp. Look no further than DigitalCrafts.

    This was a great program from the admissions process to the instructor, to my peers, as well as career support. DigitalCrafts is an upfront organization that clearly sets your expectations of what you're getting in to from the get go, lots of hard work, and an intense curriculum, but a very experienced and knowledgeable instructor (Paul was amazing) that has your back. There is no job guaranteed at the end, but Jake, Max, Katy and Jason will be there to support you in your job hunt. 

    Some advice: The class is intense. There will be days, maybe weeks, where nothing will make sense. Keep cracking at the exercises and learn to use google and stackoverflow effectively. Do all the pre-work! If you have no coding experience try Free Code Camp even if you are planning on enrolling. If you have programming interests outside of the curriculum now is the time to pursue them; take advantage of the instructor's knowledge to help you overcome those inevitable obstacles. Be open to feedback, as DC is certainly open to yours. They want to see you succeed! 

    I'm three weeks in to what feels to be a great job after a roller coaster of a hunt, and couldn't be happier. I'm obviously still learning, but the foundation of skills DC has taught me has already been immediately applicable to my job and allowed me to begin contributing from week one.

    As someone who was in the middle of getting a CS degree, I decided to take the leap and join DigitalCrafts to jump-start my development career. At first, I was a bit wary of taking the leap and putting my degree progression on hold, however after finishing the program I can happily say it was a move I do not regret at all. The amount you learn in the 16 weeks is almost incompressible, but the way everything is arranged makes the flow of learning very smooth. Everyone there is ready and willing to help and Chris, our instructor, was great. Made the material fun and gave us enough freedom to learn the way we wanted to. Very few things in life can change your life for the positive in just 4 months, If me, 4-months ago, saw me, now, I wouldn't believe the things I know to do. If anyone is even interested, I would say schedule a walk around the campus with DigitalCrafts and see for your self. It is an experience I am more than happy have taken. Also, the Atlanta Tech Villiage is a great area to have school, the environment feels great and you really get a vibe for the start-up industry.

    DigitalCrafts' has exceeded my expectations, I couldn't have asked for a better coding bootcamp experience. As a true beginner, the amount of knowledge that I have aquired over the past 16 weeks is astounding. It has allowed me to secure a full-time job as a Software Developer before graduation. So far, 50% of my cohort has secured jobs before Demo Day! 

    I chose DC due to their local, down-to-earth business model. The founders, Jake and Max, are very involved in the day to day. This lends a more personal feel to the program, and after 16 weeks, everyone here feels like family. In addition, the school is located at Atlanta Tech Village, which provides a great environment for learning and networking. 

    In regards to the curriculum, the only thing that I didn't enjoy was Python. This is strictly due to a lack of interest in learning how to code in that language. However, the CS elective uses Python for coding algorithims, so the skill did end up being handy. I am front-end JavaScript focused, and this program provided more than enough opportunity to sharpen my skills.

    Choosing a software development program is a very involved decision, but the team at DC makes it easy. If you are looking for the best bang for your buck, and a program that will be highly involved, DigitalCrafts would be perfect for you. You get out what you put in, so work hard and have fun!

    As testimonials go, I'd like to share how I came to this juncture and the helpful hints I learned along the way. Before I commited to DigitalCrafts, I researched dozens of coding bootcamps. My reccomendation is for you to do the same. Pick up the phone and call them. That's was the beginning of my relationship with DigitalCrafts. From there, I met to discuss my goals and reservations. DigitalCrafts answered candidly and supportively. I was actually interested in attending a earlier cohort but reached a mutual understanding that the cohort I ended up joining was the best financial decision for me. 

    Another huge decision was the location. The Atlanta Tech Village is the fourth largest tech hub in the country and constantly connecting students with the heart of tech culture and opportunties in Atlanta. It's a creative space for entreprenuers and business to come together to create amazing things. Rooftop louges, nap rooms, a gym, free coffee and beer certainly don't hurt either! 

    If you're like me, that's not why you're paying for the in-person experience though. You benefit from lecture, one on one explanations and working on teams to achieve ambitious goals. Hands down, this has been my favorite part of my DigitalCrafts experience. You will come to appreciate the vast amounts of knowledge you have to learn from your instructor and may be surprised to discover what you can learn from your peers as well.

    I didn't give DigitalCrafts exclusively 5 stars because there is always room for improvement. Knowing the team as well as I do, this speaks to their core values and philsophy. It's Mom-and-Pop style bootcamp experience. The key to doing well in this or any bootcamp is understanding that you get out of the experience what you put into it. DigitalCrafts can't magically turn you into a software engineer but they can give you every necessary tool and instruction needed to become one. 

    If you decide you're interested and get accepted, I can't emphasize enough how imperative the prelimenary course-work is. Do not make the mistake of blowing these assignments off. They are necessary preparation and a good indicator of what you can expect in the first weeks of the course. When you're in the thick of it, remember, it's a marathon, not a sprint. If you're up for the challenge, DigitalCrafts may be for you!
