I was accepted in the last cohort. I had three friends who were older than were not accepted. I asked them why and they told me they were too old. I would think was against the law.
Now the course is no where near bootcamp level and they do not give you enough hand holding, plus it is C#, come on really.
They do get you a free or paid interenship though. I think you could do this on your own though, just by searching Att etc.
It is only like 1.5 days a week for three months. You could get more on Codecademy in One day, all day if you wanted.
I wouldn't both because it is a waste of time. I refused the 15k salary offered me for an internship.
Exactly like the title says, great for the price. Which is 0! Thats right, this bootcamp is completely free. Basically what to expect in EpicU is spending time in class watching beginner C# sharp videos with a mentor on hand. You will watch the video, do the challenge either in class(if the challenge is simple) or at home(if its a little more complex). The mentor is there so you can ask questions after watching the videos. There isn't much hand holding in the bootcamp. Occasionally you can get some assistance outside of class but for the most part you are on your own to study and figure out the homework assignments. I would definitely try to make friends in class as they will become great resources when doing your homework. This program is very very new so they are still working out the kinks and the best way to teach. After attending the bootcamp I was able to find entry level employment so that is a plus. If you show up and show eagerness and willingness to learn in and out of class then you will be successful.

How do you get a job after coding bootcamp if you have no relevant, real-world work experience? Only 1.4% of bootcampers have worked as developers in the past, but most career-changers have little – if any– client experience when they start looking for a developer job. Some bootcamps help students overcome this hurdle by offering opportunities to work for the bootcamp itself, or with real clients through projects, internships, and apprenticeships. These opportunities can give students substantial experience to add to their portfolios and resumes, and kickstart the job hunt.Continue Reading →
