    I enrolled in the data science and analytics program. Overall, I had a great experience. My instructor, Devang, was really good. He was always willing to spend time with students, whether it be going over difficult concepts or talking about neuroscience and AI. He's very approachable, and doesn't make you feel less of a student if you ask "dumb" questions. The course itself is very fast: one minute you're learning Python, then it's SQL then Python then Front End then Machine Learning. I wish there was more time dedicated to Machine Learning, specifically Neural Networks. However, the class gave me a SOLID foundation where I now don't feel intimidated in trying to learn a new library or language or package, or any other tool. The biggest thing I got from this class is the CONFIDENCE to pick up a new tool and run with it. In terms of time spent, even though it's a part time course I basically treated it as a full time commitment. There is so much learning beyond the homeworks and activities for you to do. 

    The area that can be better is the job assistance. One thing I've seen in other boot camps is guest speakers from companies or alumni talking about their path and roles; Once the data science program solidifies, GT should absolutely invite past alumni who have data science/analytics roles to speak IN CLASS about their experience, commitment, outside learning, i.e. what they did to get that new role. As the student, the onus is really on you to get that new position but it would certainly help to know the expectations that come along, and the time commitment required. I've also seen other bootcamps with a job checklist, where the student reports on a weekly basis a schedule of jobs applied for and feedback received. More networking opportunities during the course would also be great! The demo day was really the only opportunity GT provided for networking, and we were mixed in with the other non data science cohorts. Most of the employers that attended were looking for web devs so that was a bit of a bummer. You are allowed to attend other demo days, but only as a networking student. In my cohort, a few of us got jobs right before or soon after graduation. Although I'm now a TA for said course, in the end I do feel confident I will get a job.

    We appreciate your review, Haroon! We're glad to hear you had a great experience and gained the confidence to approach and master new data tools — we also think Devang is pretty great.

    We understand you would have preferred guest speakers or alumni to come in and speak to the class, as well as additional networking opportunities. Related to this, we received student feedback from your cohort that prompted us to transition in-person speaking events to an online format, where individuals can access and review any and all recordings following each live session. We enjoy connecting alumni with current participants who are attending the program and do host a "Share Your Story" webinar, where previous learners relay their own boot camp experience and lessons learned. Did you find these resources to be useful? Your experience does not end on graduation day, as learners are supported with a range of professional development assistance for 90 days after graduation. If you would like to connect with your Career Director for any continued one-on-one support, please reach out directly at (404) 719-5481.

    We're constantly refining our career services curriculum to best equip participants as they step out into the industry, so we truly appreciate your feedback. Thank you for returning to TA for us and congratulations on completing the course! We wish you continued success in all your future endeavors.

    I took the full-time full-stack web development cohort in Fall of 2018, taught by Jacob Lamont and two wonderful TAs, Connor and Cody. I walked in with some knowledge of how HTML worked, and that was pretty much it. I walked away with a confirmation in knowing that I wanted to pursue programming, specifically in data analytics, which was something I was originally interested in before taking this bootcamp. I am now taking a few online GT class in data analytics and the lessons I learned in this bootcamp is invaluable to what I am learning now.

    Sure, I won't be able to directly apply the web development skill that I acquired in the new direction that I am taking in data analytics, but I learned many programming skills and how to be in the mindset of being a programmer. Jacob stressed many times that it's not knowing and utilizing one specific language but being to able to apply the baseline programming knowledge in order to carry out the task in any given language that you would need to use. I skipped a few Python and R prereqs to take the classes I am taking now, but the base that Jacob helped me establish has been a lifesaver. You will learn this lesson and many others in the bootcamps offered.

    The biggest plus to this bootcamp was obviously the instructor and the TAs. The instructors are hugely knowledgeable and experienced in what they teach. You will gain three (or four, if you use their tutoring system) hard working and passionate coders who take your learning very seriously. If you are stuck on an issue, they will stay and risk missing their bus (!) and help you out. They are incredibly accomodating people as well.

    I would recommend anyone who are interested in learning how to develop websites with a full-stack mentality to take this course. To be honest, I would recommend it if you weren't even looking to be in the field. I took so much away without even interested in the field.

     As a business owner, i looked for ways to add value to my business and provide better services to my customers. I wanted to better understand my customers and leverage data to make informed decisions. GA tech data science gave me the tools to do so and more, it exceeded my expectations.  I was very nervous at the beginning as i had no programming experience, OMG! I cannot believe I made it successfully! This is why I give this bootcamp a 5 stars review:

     The curriculum is RICH and relevant to the data science industry yet very challenging. Challenging is an understatement for someone with no prior experience in the field. But the instructional staff, the TA's and the support system around the students are always available to help. My favorite part of the program was working in teams for projects with other students. Students are from so many different industries and background, that working together made me discover different approaches to tackle projects, solve problems and put in practice what i learned. I will definitely miss the projects. Everything was not perfect as we had challenges with scheduling and changes in the course content at times which was frustrating. Overall the staff handled these issues well and i  definitely recommend Georgia Tech Data Science and Analytics Boot Camp. Just make sure you can put in the work and the time if you want to join, also seek help when you need it.

    6 months ago I found myself lurking this website for opinions of prior students that found success in this course. I wanted to know, what you want to know, and that is simply.. is it worth the time and money. As a new graduate (Feb.2019) of GA Tech Coding Bootcamp, I can assure you its worth it! 

    I came into the program with prior coding experience, HTML, CSS, Javascript, JQuery (basics). This helped me for sure, but you're not required to have any prior experience coding to be successful. I sat alongside students that had never coded before, and they are now capable of building full stack web applications.

    The curriculum is well thought out, very detailed and challenging. We covered the MERN stack, which is MongoDB, Express, React, and nodeJS. We also covered HTML, CSS, Javascript, Jquery, SQL, Heroku, GIT and much much more.

    You get out what you put in, while the staff does a phenomenal job introducing you to various coding topics. You will have to dedicate time to study and complete homework/projects to get as much out of this course as possible. They stressed networking with classmates to form study groups and lean on each other to be successful. I've met some really incredible people during my time at the boot camp.

    The staff at the Ga Tech Coding Bootcamp are really amazing people. They are patient, kind, engaging, and always willing to help you with anything! From the instructors to the TA's everyone there is incredibly supportive. Career services are optional,  I encourage anyone attending to opt in. They offer assistance with resume building, social media sites such as LinkedIn, and interview sessions. They also offer post-graduation support.

    TLDR; I just graduated the GA TECH CODING BOOTCAMP. I had the most amazing time learning to code. I met some really amazing people while I was there! I can build some really cool full stack websites/web applications. I came back to the same site, I initially started my search to tell you to GO FOR IT!

    I moved from Haiti to the U.S. in 2015. In Haiti, I worked as a computer technician, and I always had an interest in technology. My natural knack for languages combined with my interest in tech lead me to programming. I started taking some courses on Free Code Camp to grow my programming skills. But, I soon realized that if I wanted to find a job as a software engineer in a new country, I needed to formalize my skills and experience.

    I saw an ad about the GA Tech Coding Bootcamp, and I was immediately interested because of GA Tech’s outstanding reputation. Getting a Full Stack Flex Web Development Certificate from GA Tech ended up being one of the best decisions I’ve made. I was able to secure an internship, which led to my first job, and now I work as a full-time software engineer for a major company in Atlanta, GA.

    The program exceeded my expectations. The instructors and TAs were excellent and very invested in my success. The program focuses on all the core coding languages, including the MERN Stack. We completed a total of three projects that became part of my portfolio of work examples. I really appreciated the in-person learning environment. And, students who are struggling can receive a tutor. I’ve seen students completely turn around and make huge progress with the help of a tutor.

    This is a program where you have every opportunity to succeed. It truly requires an investment on the part of the student to put in the work, but you have an excellent support system along the way.

    As someone who went into this bootcamp looking to switch career into software development, I knew nothing about coding.  So I really didn't know what to expect. 

    Therefore upon graduating, my sumary for the course is

    1.The course is a great way to learn about the field and get you started in web development. They pretty much set a solid foundation for you to spring board into your software career. 

    2. You will need to spend more time than you think to do your hw and learning new materials.

    3. The instructional staff for my course was very knowledgeable  and provided great support . 

    4. In terms of finding a job, the career services available was a valueable resource that helped me become more competive for your job search. But like finding any job, it will likely depends on how active and willing you are to pursue oportunities.

    The amount of coding experience I have gained is invaluable and cannot be substituted by any independent learning. The boot camp excels in giving students plenty of hands on experience, but there isn't a whole of explanations of how things are working in the background. There is a whole of information to digest and I guess that's where the independent learning comes in. I'm not sure how I will fair looking for jobs, but judging by the amount of boot camp graduates and feedback from my classmates I am assuming it will be quite difficult. I wish there was a job placement guarantee or something along those lines that way the students aren't left with no direction to run to.

    We appreciate your review, Zack. We're glad to hear you gained invaluable coding experience and benefited from the hands-on projects!

    We understand you would have liked to spend more time delving into the background explanations. Like you mentioned, the program is fast-paced and designed to cover multiple topics in a limited amount of time. Because of this, subjects are introduced at a high level in-class, and you are absolutely right that individuals are expected to dive in through independent learning after class — not only to gain a deeper understanding but also to practice their skills. Each lesson iteratively builds on the last, and we find that as the curriculum progresses, participants feel more and more confident in the material.

    It's true that the job search is difficult and requires hours of effort on the part of our learners. While we do not secure direct employment for individuals, we do work hard to prepare them to step out into the job market. We help participants become employer competitive through a variety of resources and tools, including technical interview training, portfolio reviews, resume/social media profile support, online Tech Talk panels, and one-on-one meetings with their Career Director, as well as instructor-led office hour interview prep sessions.

    We are committed to making sure our learners feel confident in their skills upon graduating, so we'd love to hear from you directly to see what else we can do at this time to best meet your expectations. If you would like, please reach out to us at (404) 369-3107. We wish you all the success going forward!

    I got a promotion in January of 2018 and was excited to be taking over the development of our proprietary back office system that we had been outsourcing for many years. Since I was already tech savvy and just needed some guidance and a good foundation for Full Stack web development I started doing my research. I looked at all the different opportunities there were in Atlanta for a boot camp and landed on GA Tech's Part-Time Full Stack Web Development boot camp. Of course, I was weary as some can be when it comes to boot camps. You never know what you may end up with. I can tell you this, I am already looking at enrolling in a secondary boot camp through GA Tech because the experience I had in my part-time full stack boot camp was just that amazing!

    First off, let me just say boot camps are not for the faint of heart. If you are not serious about learning a new skill to advance your career or start a new career, boot camps are not for you. If you are serious though, this is your bootcamp. It takes dedication, sacrifice and focus to make it through this bootcamp. But you are not doing it alone. 

    My instructional staff consisted of 2 instructors and 4 teaching assistants. It was intimidating at first having these 6 individuals with so much knowledge and there I was almost clueless except for some very rudimentary knowledge of HTML and CSS. However, the light and airy demeanor my instructional staff had from day one really eased the intimidation. They showed they really wanted to help us learn and succeed at these new skills we were learning. Never once did I feel that I was incompetent due to the reactions or comments from the instructors. The instructional team really excelled at creating a safe and inviting environment for learning. The instructors had complete control and extensive knowledge of the content in my course. They also showed us they were human and even top developers that have been in this field for 10+ years still had to research things when issues arose. It is an ever changing field and almost impossible to remember every single rule and exception in programming. The way the instructors structured the course material was also very helpful for my learning. 

    We started with HTML, moved to CSS and then got into the fun stuff, JavaScript. They told us the course was not going to be easy and boy were they right. Every week we had to create a new web application. We worked on our HTML skills from day one and then added CSS. After that, every assignment involved us building on our HTML and CSS skills while still learning more and more JavaScript. Every week was a new challenge and a new topic that we were able to build on. Because each assigment built on the last we had the repition of building a web application from scratch helping engrain the basics in our habits. As the weeks went by it all got easier and by a third of the way through I felt comfortable enough to begin trying new things on my own. They empowered us by teaching us in this manner. We, as students, were empowered and knew enough and had best practices in place to start venturing out on our own and succeed in our independent learning. 

    Once we had learned the basics of JavaScript and gotten into intermediate JavaScript we were on to more exciting technologies. Non-relational databases, socket.io for live messaging apps, relational databases, APIs and css-frameworks. It was a full immersion in a strong and well rounded web development curriculum. After so many weeks of hard work it was fun learning new things and finally seeing it all work together to build a true full-stack application. Then we finally got to the JavaScript React.js. This was where it got really fun and decent bit easier. 

    If you are on the fence, go ahead on hop off and choose the GA Tech bootcamp. If you put the time in and fully immerse yourself you will not regret it. The instructional staff truly cares about the success of their students and wants each and everyone of the students. If someone fell behind slightly our instructors were there to help us get back on course and start succeeding again. I can't reccomend this program enough. Enroll, put in the time and hardwork, and I can promise you will not regret it. One of the best decisions of my life. The content and lessons I learned in this boot camp will stay with me forever. I understand programming now but also how to aproach teaching myself new material after completing the course so I can continue to grow.

    Some background: I have a bs in industrial engineering and masters in business and healthcare administration. My career has been heavily focused in analytics, yet I've only scratched the surface - heavy excel models, crude database solutions, and some sql/reporting. For years, I knew I wanted to dive deeper into statistics, programming, and tools. Fast forward to the GT Data Science & Analytics Bootcamp. This course was the perfect career move. We covered every topic I was interested in, and I left with skills I would not have developed otherwise. I'm now proficient in python, tableau, sql, machine learning, and other development. Coupling these technical skills with my career trajectory enabled me to land a position at a prestigious Atlanta consulting firm. Without this bootcamp, I would not have even been considered for the position. If you want to sharpen your career... sign up.

    Jacob Lamont, our lead instructor was beyond great. He was extremely knowledgeable and was able to very clearly explain very complicted and complex concepts. The material covered is very difficult but if you put in the time you will be very successful in this course. The full time course was very fast paced and I put in about 35-40 hours outside of class.

    You get out of this course what you put in. You are given so many resources to help you succeed. Work hard and it will pay off, trust me! Go to office hours everytime you have questions and the instructor and TAs will be there to assist you. Go home and re-work the activities in class and hammer the material into your brain.

    MY BIGGEST TIP: GO TO DEMO DAY AND PRESENT YOUR PROJECT(S) AND NETWORK AND KEEP CODING AFTER GRADUATION

    I can't stress this enough. I was able to land a full time job within 3 weeks of graduating because of both of these. Connect with industry professionals, send personal follow-up Emails the next day to them asking to come in and shadow the company. Go in to shadow with a laundry list of questions and you might impress them so much they offer you a full-time job. I never stopped coding after I graduated and come to find out that was one of the deciding factors a lot of hiring managers look at.

    I loved our instructor, and the TAs were usually helpful. The course itself was valuable as we learned a lot.

    But the program has a hideous connection with Atlanta software businesses. The demo day was pathetic, as we were promised fifty businesses, less than half of which actually showed up, and of those, a strong majority were former camp attended. And most of those were at companies no longer hiring.

    Five months after the boot camp our cohort of 24 attendees has only five with a fulltime programming position. Most of the rest have given up looking.

    I am a graduate from the first graduating Ga Coding Bootcamp class (Sav Campus). Highly recomment this course. I am a self taught developer, I did not graduate with a CS or IS degree, but I've been programming ever since I left college 5 years ago. And this was a great way for me to sit in an academic environment and learn terminology and develop a better understanding of why things worked a certain way. You also, have unlimited resources and experienced teachers that are willing to help you. We covered serveral programming languages during the 6 months, as well as learning how to program for the back-end. I work fulltime as a web application developer and i'm a mom and I live about 45 minutes from SAV. So if you are worried about dedicating enough time, you can do it, because I did and its worth it. Its been about a year and a half since I took this course, which means it has more than likely evolved since I went through, and I still refer back to my homework and use the lessons that I learned. I would defintely take another coding course if one ever comes available.

    One tip create back ups of your backs ups! 

    Since everyone wants to hear a con i'm going to give you one. 

    • Before leaving the class make sure you know how to go live with a application for the real world. We did a lot of stuff locally and published to heroku to present. But majority of the time, (outside of this class) you are going to have a web hosting provider with a shared server or VPS, make sure you learn how to package of an application and deploy. And deciding on what kind of web hosting account to deploy your application that supports your programming language. This is what I struggled with the most after the class. Its was like hey I can build these great applications, but how do I publish them to an assigned domain name.

    I can't say enough good things about my experience.  It was the hardest class I've ever taken, but also the most rewarding.  

    I only wish that finding a job with just 6 months of bootcamp experience was easier.  Be prepared to spend a significant amount of time post bootcamp adding to your portfolio and finding ways to get experience that might find you a job.

    We learned about the MERN stack (just stating in case the curriculum ever changes). If you're looking to take a course and just get handed a job at the end, don't take this class. This course covers a ton of information very quickly and despite effort from the instructors you will not be spoon fed. You have to put in a ton of effort both outside and inside the course. It'll be tough, and even when the course is over you need to continue to put in time to learn a lot of computer science basics as well as apply to jobs. If you're willing to put in the effort, this course is a great starting point and will allow you to learn code in a friendly yet challenging setting.

    I did a lot of research before deciding on a boot camp and finsally decided on GA Tech's. 

     

    Having done my research, I definitely went into this expecting to be challenged, frustrated and exhausted. Man, was I right! I packed an insane amount of information into my head during the program and was completely amazed by just how much I learned, A big part of which was just how much I had left to learn.

     

    Thankfully the program is really focused on teaching you how to learn code, where to find answers when you need them, and (most importantly) how to think like a developer. Just be prepared to put in the hours!!

    Review: This program was so much more than just an certificate, I am very grateful for all that I've had the opportunity to be part of. Georgia Institute of Technology is without a doubt one of the world's greatest institutions, so a certificate with thier stamp of approval is a no brainer investment! Overall the program was very challenging although the rewards are limitless. I would highly recommend the full stack flex program to anyone looking to advance their career or simply get thier foot in the door to a very hot industry! 

    Results: As an alumni I've recieved tons of hits from recruiters and three offer letters to date, all just 3 weeks after graduation. In addition to this I'm equipped with the needed foundation to confidently advance my career in many directions and I've also picked up a few cool startup ideas! 

    Tips:  Lets face it, as anything worth having in life this will not be easy! Do not make the misconception that simply completing the bootcamp will get you a job, as once the program is over is when the real work begins! You will be given a strong foundation the tools needed to succeed, from there the choice is yours as to continue to push to learn, stay active, and network.

    This course is excellent. The curriculum is well paced and challenging enough to force you to figure things out on your own and help you develop skills to critically think through problems.

    • daily challenges that will build confidence in yourself
     
    I took the 3 month accelerated course and it was extremely challenging. I didn’t come from a computer background which at first was a scary feeling. The instructional team is always there to help guide you when you feel like you don’t get something. They teach you how to find answers on your own and help you gain confidence in yourself.

    I attended the part time bootcamp from April 2017 through October 2017.  After an interesting career path, I found myself in IT (chased medicine, worked in International Business and Education).  I wanted to do more than just troubleshoot a problem and then hand the logs off to the vendor, so I looked at development.  After a few failed attempts to teach myself I decided to look into a bootcamp.

    I chose Georgia Tech's program becaue at the time, it was one of the only one's offering a comprehensive part-time program and I couldn't afford to leave my job.  Additionally, I'm a Georgia Tech alum so that the school would attach its name to a program stood out to me.

    I feel the program adequately covered the material needed to work with the MERN stack.  Also, the staff express the importance of continuous learning.  You'll come out with an understanding of how the tools work, but since tech is constantly changing, you'll also learn how to keep up.

    Side Note: I felt confident enough it what I've learned to come back is a TA for the course.
