- Changing careers while working full time.- 12/15/2020Andres Rueda • Full Stack Web Developer • Graduate • Course: Web Development Remote • Campus: Online • Verified via GitHubI highly recommend the Concordia Bootcamp, the curriculum is up to date to the latest releases of React (hooks, Redux, useReducer, etc) and includes many intensive workshops where you can learn while hands-on. Here you will learn not only the latest about the MERN stack but also the most important concepts of coding. Our teacher (Josh Comeau) has a lot of experience has participated in international conferences. I signed for a face-to-face program since all this was new for me, I have the idea it won't work in a virtual environment. However, due to COVID-19, we have to go virtual. I couldn't be happier. While the program kept its professionalism and the technical advisors support us in any doubts we could have during the learning process, we also had the advantage of learning from home, with no worries about losing my time on displacements. I doubted the program before I signed because it doesn't guarantee a practice or a job once it is finalized. I couldn't be wrong. The program philosophy is that success is only in your hands, but this will not prevent you to be accompanied in every step you have to do by the career service team, following their advice and working hard on my job applications I was able to land in a great position as a Full Stack Web developer in less than a month after our graduation.
- Best education I've ever taken- 12/6/2020Myra-Grace Salinas • Web Developer • Course: Full-Stack Immersive • Campus: Montreal • Verified via LinkedIn
- Ning An • Software Developer • Graduate • Course: Web Development Remote • Campus: Online • Verified via LinkedInAs a data analyst, I used to be very interested in coding, and thus got involved into some courses at various platforms, but none of them told me what exactly I was doing and what I can accomplish with the skills. The code camp made it. The daily lectures give you a big picture of a specific new area and some necessary information, while the daily workshops, designed with realistic context, are the mysterious world you dive into to show the value of your skills and to practice a real life as a developer. We all started toddling with the TCs and lecturers holding our hands anytime we need, but then you gradually found them more of gurus and collaborators, and you all work on building the same masterpiece, i.e. you as a confident developer. Same credit goes to the career service. The Job hunting process can be extremely frustrating. It's unlike the daily workshop which gives you instant feedback and a sense of achievement. Receiving auto-replies and rejections would be more like your daily life then. But the career coach is right there like a compass directing you to the right path and a lighthouse in the pitch-dark ocean cheering you up. Plus, you'll also start your tech network with your classmates in the cohort. Those cute ppl are your lifetime invaluable fortune.
- Worth the Investment- 11/4/2020Jordan Gabay • Technical Recruiter • Student • Course: Full-Stack Immersive • Campus: Montreal • Verified via GitHubI found this program through a co-worker of mine and once he told me about it I thought it was worth a try. I had no experience coding and took the 3 month intensive but this program provides the resources you need to learn a lot of languages and by the end you'll be able to stand on your own feet. The teacher and the TA's care a lot about the students attending and hold you accountable for the work that you do. It's almost impossible to fail since you're constantly learning and have people making sure you can keep up with the class. After the program you're presented with the option to use career services which will help you make your way into the workforce. I would take advantage of these opportunities if I were you! They don't guarantee you a job but give you the insight and practice that you'll need while working. I didn't accept a developer job exactly, but doing the program combined with my past experiences lead to me becoming a technical recruiter working closely with engineering and software.
Overall I'd recommend this if you're looking for your next career step or if you're looking to pick up software development as a means to compliment your current background.
- A Worthwhile Experience- 11/2/2020Kenny • Junior Developer • Graduate • Course: Full-Stack Immersive • Campus: Montreal • Verified via GitHubAfter learning by myself for 2months, I decided to enroll in Concordia in order to speed up my learning process. The team Concordia bootcamps team provides you with a lot of support and tools while you work on projects. I graduated with the confidence and ability to continue learning independently as a real developer. There is even a career-services program included that helps you find a job after graduation, which is how I landed my first internship.
- I joined this program with zero prior coding knowledge. It was the best experience of my educational life. The program is very complete and up to date. They thought of everything and whatever you learn, you learn from the bests. The entire team is so knowledgeable , nice, caring and helpful and even after your graduation they will support you both technically and mentally. After this program not only I changed my career also I found a lot of friends in this field.
- Une expérience qui en vaut la peine- 10/23/2020Myriam Mansouri • Frontend developer • Graduate • Course: Web Development Remote • Campus: Online • Verified via GitHubJ'ai décidé d'appliquer au Bootcamp pour en finir avec le cycle infernal de l'apprentissage web en autodidacte où on fait beaucoup de tutoriels en ligne mais peu de projets concrets. Et c'est ce que j'ai trouvé avec le bootcamp de Concordia, pleins de projets dans lesquels se plonger pour vraiment comprendre et expérimenter les concepts appris. L'avantage du bootcamp, c'est que dans ces projets on n'est jamais seul. Toute l'équipe du Bootcamp est là pour nous soutenir et répondre à nos questions. En passant, l'équipe enseignante est extrêmement sympathique et généreuse de son temps. Le service de carrière n'est pas en reste non plus. C'est grâce au job fair organisé par leur soin que j'ai pu rencontrer mon futur employeur. Malgré le contexte de la Covid, j'ai reçu une offre moins de deux mois après la fin du bootcamp.
All of the instructors were kind and highly knowledgeable. They pushed us to always do our best and challenged us to reach our maximum potential. The classmates were incredibly friendly as well, and I came away from the course being good friends with many. Working side by side with fellow coders in the class was another valuable experience. We would often be assigned group work, which was an excellent opportunity to learn teamwork and pick up different coding techniques.
The final project gauntlet was one of my proudest accomplishments. We were given two weeks to create a full-stack web application and the project was open to anything we were motivated to work on. It was independent work where we had to bring everything we had to the table. With the knowledge we had acquired over the course of the 3 months and the guidance of the instructors, everyone showed extremely impressive results.
At the end of the course, we were assigned a professional technical coach, as well as a professional career coach to help us in the job hunt. The career coach provided one on one meetings every week and helped with everything from looking over resumes and cover letters to mock culture fit interviews and moral support. The technical coach took on the technical side of things in conducting mock technical interviews, giving advice for the first week on the job, and looking over technical assignments from companies. Within a month of completing the course, I got an amazing job offer that I have since accepted.
All in all, Concordia Bootcamps was one of the best decisions I have made. I have so much high praise for all the instructors and the career coaches as they all were absolutely incredible. This course completely changed the course of my life and I can't recommend enrolling enough!
- Concordia Bootcamps 12 week full stack- 10/19/2020Lucas • Software Dev Intern • Verified via LinkedInI signed up to the Bootcamp with a bit of experience in html/css/js and a variety of libraries because i was looking to make the jump to the tech world and wanted to start off as a developer.
The program I did, entirely done remotely, was well structured and well organized. The typical day consisted of a lecture between 1-2 hours, followed by an afternoon where we were left to our own devices to go through workshops to consolidate what was taught in the morning. The workshops were intense but not impossible, and we always had access (and were encouraged) to call a technical coach when we hit a road block. The process of learning was entirely based on the amount of effort you put in even and although there were certain workshops that were impossible to finish in an afternoon (or evening for that matter) enough time was scheduled to allow us to ''catch up'' or ''go for stretch goals'' to ensure that we were all on the right track. The workshops all led to projects which built directly on the workshops themselves, those of us that did the workshops had a good idea of how to do most of the projects which closed off a module.
The final projects were the most interesting and rewarding and ultimately where i really got the sense that i knew how to code. We had to come up with the ideas and the implementation ourselves and while we did have guidance, no one got into the weeds with us. All in all a good experience.
Career-wise we had access to a career coach and a technical coach who helped us through the job search process. They dont find the job for you, but they do put you in situations that help you out. I accepted an paid internship less than a month after finishing.
- A new life in three months- 9/30/2020Marie • Graduate • Course: Web Development Remote • Campus: Online • Verified via LinkedInOur instructor started our bootcamp by announcing "you won't BELIEVE what you'll be able to do three months from now!" and I can absolutely confirm that he was right. As a novice coder (with only the experience of the assignment I submitted for my application to the program), within three months I learned enough to design and build websites and apps from start to finish, on my own. The instructor was enthusiastic and approachable and clearly passionate about web development. The technical coaches were a godsend and I hope that all of my classmates got to enjoy their knowledge and assistance as much as I did. The workload was heavy, but definitely manageable.
I signed up for this program as an opportunity to pivot my life and start on a new career track and not only do I feel confident to be entering the world of web development, I landed a job less than a week after completion of the program. That said, I didn't get to enjoy the full advantages of the career services support system, since I went through most of the interview process before our career coaching really kicked in (it really ramps up after graduation, and I started interviewing while the course was ongoing). However, I got one great consultation with my technical coach and career coach before my final interview for the job I accepted, and they were wonderful.
- Full-Stack Immersive Night & Weekends- 7/13/2020Theo Gjini • Full-Stack Developer • Graduate • Course: Full-Stack Nights & Weekends • Campus: Montreal • Verified via GitHubI wanted to make a career switch, the most efficiently and quickly possible. I would never regret my choice. I was able to do the bootcamp beside my job, it was a lot of personal investment, but totally doable. The exercises very rewarding, and the lessons very complete, gives you the skill to make real end-to-end web apps. The content is updated according to the industry (TA's and lecturers are professional developers). Less than 3 months after graduated, I landed a full-stack position. The support during and after the course was really great! We have two personal coaches after the graduation, to continue to improve technically and to help us apply to jobs.
I would totally recommend Concordia Bootcamps!
- Almost Impossible to Fail!- 6/22/2020Matteo • Front End Web Developer • Graduate • Verified via LinkedInIf you're looking to pursue a career as a Web Developer, I strongly recommend choosing Concordia Bootcamps. I happened to be a one of the students whose Bootcamp was disrupted by our beloved pandemic. Regardless, the staff at CB were quick to adapt to the crisis, doing everything they could to help students like me succeed. Though it took some adjustment, we moved to Zoom lectures, and had access to our Technical Coaches via Zoom (and a cool online queue app they made in their efforts to adapt to the pandemic!). It's evident that they're committed to their students, and genuinely want to see them flourish in the industry. I had little to no experience in real programming prior to the course, and worked mostly in an unrelated field. Now I'm starting a new job as a Front End Developer just 6 weeks after the course and couldn't be happier!
With that said, this isn't a walk in the park. It's a Bootcamp, and what you get out of it will be determined by what you put in. The structure of the course is divided into some theory, solo work, and some group work. The solo work will take up most of your time but there's always a Technical Coach available for when you're stuck. And technical coaches do care, they want you to succeed, so they'll avoid just giving you the answer, and prefer to give you guidance--just enough to help you think and solve the problem yourself. Be ready to struggle and problem solve, and learn to love the process, because the benefits that come from sticking with the struggle is one of the most rewarding aspects of the course (and of programming!).
After the 12 weeks of lectures and projects, comes the Career Services. CB pairs you with a technical coach, who helps you improve your coding skills, and a career coach, who helps you land that first job. Not only that, but the career services offer really helpful tools, webinars, and other support to guide you on your journey.
So, if you're willing to do your part--to do the hard work of learning, asking questions, being curious, and enduring through the struggle, it is indeed impossible to fail. Sign up!
