It is purely down to Israel Tech Challenge that I am now working as a full-time Web Developer. My previous professional experience had nothing to do with tech, so for me to be able to come for 5 months, work hard, and find a career as a web developer is a truly incredible turn of events! The staff are super friendly and well-educated and the program is takes place in an awesome location. I'd definitely recommend it!
I highly recommend the CTO program they have connctions with industry partners such as PayPal, Check Point, EMC and startups such as Dapulse.
I echo the sentiments of the review left on 1/18/2017. One which I would have taken very seriously, had I seen another like it.
Plain and simple, would never recommend.
If there are graduates, particularly Americans, who feel that the education provided by ITC was anything other than a disorganized waste of time, please respond. (The French seem to have a very different idea of what it means to work and learn efficiently.)
Anyone can agree to appear in a company-produced video because they figure it will help in the long run to be a good sport about things, as he or she seeks out employment in a relatively small tech community. It's another thing entirely to write a hearfelt review extolling the educational benefits of having attended ITC for several months.
It seems that in previous cohorts, students were at least granted the freedom to go on interviews and learn as they pleased, for example working through the problems in Cracking the Coding Interview together prior to the job and intership search. Now things are dictated to students.
As much as I wish ITC to succeed, the bootcamp cohort W16-17, was one of the worst organized academic experiences I have ever had. This bootcamp had one teaching assistant for 26 participants. Lecturers were average and did not have much interaction with students and slideshows always seem put together at the last second full of typos and confusing content. Administration while claiming to care, does little to address lack of resourcing. The administration also does little to organize the day efficiently, and never adheres to schedules. All in all this organization is cheating participants of their money, would never recommend.
