    If you are considering to pay $7,000 to invest in your education and change careers, you might as well understand what you are actually getting for that money. My goal in this review is to be as thorough and objective as possible, so as to give you, prospective student, a clear understanding of what you are honestly signing up for. Looking back, the hype of the reviews here was not a true representative of the actual bootcamp experience. What disappointed me more was the politics that are being played on DecodeMTL course report. A perfect 5 star from all reviews…really now?
     
    Job placement rate?
    Even if an education or experience isn’t as good as it seemed at least on paper or based on reviews, if they can give you a job within few months, it is still a good decision as you can pay off the $7,000 very soon and get your money back and upgrade your career. Unfortunately, DecodeMTL can’t deliver honest placement rates. As a matter of fact, once you are done with the program there is not much help, they have no hiring director that will assist you in finding a job. The job assistance you get is basically you having to email and call everyone that you can and hustle desperately to try to find someone to finally consider you and hire you. It's not an easy or enjoyable or streamlined process. It seems the Montreal market isn’t the best for developers and there is not enough jobs to go for everyone. Moreover, the average salary of those who do get hired are between $35,000-40,000, far less than other coding bootcamps ($50,000-$60,000) in the country and in the US. Then there is a great number that are just trying to find a job and disheartened and don’t want to write a review.
     
    Curriculum
    I don’t think anyone feels competent to use the term full-stack web developer for themselves when they are out. The Decode team is warm and welcoming and I really enjoy some of the friendships I made there, but I joined DecodeMTL to learn to code... not to make friends. The instructor Ziad is knowledgeable and the co-founder Kevin is a great guy, but that being said, teaching yourself will save you money and emotional distress. The program is Highly underdeveloped. There are great resources online you can use that are equivalent, if not better, to the DecodeMTL program. 
     
    Conclusion
    For me, I don’t have a job, but the experience was good, although it wasn’t even close to the Hollywood movie that CourseReport reviews may have made it seem.

    This review is basically a copy of one from a coding school in Florida. We are not sure about it's validity.
