    Web-Development Bootcamp

    Before I started this course, I had a decent understanding of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. I believe this really helped me in this course. This program offers a wonderful introduction to the world of web development. However this is a huge time commitment, the recommended 20 hours is not enough, I personally spent closer to 30 hours a week. I learned a lot though. I was able to land a job within a month of graduating, and most of my friends in the class had similar success. ​

    A Great Learning Experience.

    The Full-Stack Web Flex Part-Time program is an outstanding introduction into web development. The material covered is extremely current, the instructors are incredibly knowledgeable, and the teaching assistants are really capable to meet the students’ learning needs. The balance between material on the front-end and back-end of web development is good and students graduating from the program, who have put in the time to really study the material, are well prepared to pick up new material ...

    Best Decision

    This course was everything I'd hoped for it to be. There is a lot of material in the course that were all relevant to current technology. So you know what you're learning is relevant to today's standards. It's impossible to learn everything about a specific language. However, the course gave me the tools to continue learning on my own and excel in the field.

    Well worth it !

    After a year of taking online courses to improve my skills, I decided to totally commit to a 6 month Full Stack Web Development course. It was the right decision for me! The course is loaded with information about many relevant topics that web developers need to understand. There is a lot of information presented in each class so consistent attendance is critical. The instructors and TAs are very knowledgeable and helpful. But, be prepared to put in a lot of study and coding time in order ...

    Best investment I’ve ever made

    I graduated the KU bootcamp last July and was hired as a back-end web developer shortly after. The bootcamp changed my life. I made so many new friends while I was learning new skills and have connections for a lifetime, and it was really engaging to be there in person vs doing an online coding course or bootcamp. To me, the reputable certificate, the connections and the engagement made it well worth the money and time to go vs teaching myself at home. Their content and resources covered m...

    Kansas University Coding Bootcamp

    Kansas City Coding Bootcamp is an excellent choice for students who want to jump into Full-Stack Web Development. The first day was a classroom building exercise to bond with each other and network with one another. It was great I made quite a few friends in here that I have been learning with since the beginning of the course. The structure of the curriculum is on a higher difficulty and can be daunting. The resources that are available to you are top-notch and all of it is available to y...

    Decent Class, Good Material, Great Teacher..... But

    I'm going to be completely honest with you. Because I wish someone would have written a review like I am going to write for you and I hope it will help you make your decision, 

    I enrolled in the KU Cyber Security Bootcamp in Mar2022. I had a career that i was unhappy with before (I'm 37 years old) i enrolled. I was always smart with computers. Not like in the coding and technical way but I can work my way around a computer without having any technical schooling. Btw the class is $...

    Thank you for your review. We're sorry to hear that the boot camp did not live up to your expectations.
    As you mentioned, the course is designed to cover a broad range of topics in a short period of time. We do our best to communicate the commitment required to succeed prior to enrollment, telling prospective learners that they should expect to dedicate at least 20 hours to coursework outside of the classroom. We also offer additional academic support to ensure that learners understand concepts covered each week. From your review, we understand that you were not able to take advantage of these services due to personal circumstances. 
    The boot camp allows learners to learn through hands-on lessons and projects in an environment that mimics the real-world work done by cybersecurity professionals. While the materials may not resonate with all students, we aim to provide a high-level overview of relevant industry topics so learners can walk away prepared to enter the field. The final project is your opportunity to apply the skills you've learned while diving deeper into a particular area of cybersecurity.
    Prior to enrollment, we communicate course expectations to prospective students, as we know taking a boot camp is a big commitment. In addition to covering the refund policy, our admissions team makes it clear that while we cannot guarantee job placement upon program completion, we do work with students through the Career Engagement Network. We regret to hear that your studies resulted in your decision against pursuing a cybersecurity career.
    We welcome the opportunity to speak with you directly to learn how we can assist you at this time. If you would like, please reach out to us at (913) 439-1919.

    Long Read But Thorough

    I signed up for this course because I wanted to learn development and this course is taught at a state university (though not through the university).

    My experience:
    Day 1 and you jump right in. You have about an hour of introduction and then you get your machines set up. This was supposed to be done before the class, but was either not done correctly by the students or they ran into issues. The aides and instructor went around the room and helped to set everyone up. The sam...

    We appreciate you sharing your experience! Great advice for prospective students — completing the prework is a great way to get a grasp of the foundations prior to beginning the program. We are happy to hear that you learn a wide-range of new skills, benefited from the hands-on projects, and felt job ready at the end of the course.

    From your review, we understand you were unhappy with your career services experience. Like you mentioned, while we work hard to prepare learners to step out into the job market, we do not secure direct employment. We help individuals become employer competitive through a variety of resources and tools, including technical interview training, portfolio reviews, resume/social media profile support, and one-on-one coaching with their Career Director. We hope you were able to benefit from these resources.
     
    We're constantly refining our professional development curriculum to best equip participants as they step out into the industry, so we truly appreciate your feedback. We’d love to hear from you directly to see what else we can do at this time to help you feel equipped for success. If you would like, please reach out to us directly at (913) 439-1919.
