    A Most Adult Decision. A Most Excellent Decision!

    I was working a dead end job, dreading each day, and unable to decide how to break out of my situation. After a lot of research, visiting campuses and speaking with employees, graduates and others in the industry, I narrowed down my choices to two major bootcamps in Toronto. 

    After visiting the prospective campuses, the decision to attend Lighthouse Labs (LHL) was pretty simple. LHL ensures each student has the basic skills to succeed via testing prior to accepta...

    Extremely practical curriculum

    Attended the Web Bootcamp in 2016. Course and teachers were excellent. I have been a fulltime web developer since gruaduating and use the knowledge I gained from LHL daily.

    I have since recommended another person to sign up, which he did and also loved. He graduated and has been developing for 2 years now.

    Would do again in a heartbeat.

    Proud Survivor

    I graduated from Lighthouse Labs' Web Development bootcamp in 2018 and would eagerly recommend it to anyone looking for a solid start in programming and/or building web applications.  My experience coming in was limited to a little tooling around in HTML and some very basic programming decades ago---nearly everything I encountered was essentially new to me (I'd been working as a technology teacher for six years prior to enrollment, so I was comfortable with the hardware, but was more of an...

    Intro to Front-End with JavaScript

    I'm amazed by just how much I got out of this relatively short class. After 6 weeks of coursework and lectures, I feel like my comfort with HTML, CSS, and JavaScript has grown by leaps and bounds. I had great instructors and the coursework has mostly really well thought-out.

    Best iOS Bootcamp

    A very intense and demanding bootcamp, but probably also one of the best learning experiences that I have ever had. The material is current, with a good mix of theory and practical assignments. The intructors and mentors were very knowledgeable, approachable, and helpful, and the people in career services were truly amazing.

    Launched my career!

    Like with anything you do in life, you're going to get out of this course exactly what you put into it. The hours can be long, the self-doubt can be high, but at the end of the day, you get to spend 10 weeks immersing yourself in as much knowledge as you can soak in. Are you going to be an expert developer at the end of the program? No. That's not the intention. The intention is to get you to a place where you can confidently apply for your first Jr. Developer role (or maybe a hybrid if th...

    Learnt how to learn

    Its been nearly 2 years since graduating from lighthouse labs. We learnt mainly ruby on rails then. I have not touched Ruby on rails since, but what I took away from this bootcamp was learning how to learning. Learning how to ask the right questions, this skill has helped me in every development job I had.

    LHL Remote Program

    The curriculum is amazing and I absolutely learned everything I hoped to and more. Doing the remote program does feel like you're a bit 2nd class to the in-person cohorts. Particularly in terms of the hiring and job seeking support. I'm still seeking my first position after finishing the program and I haven't felt as supported as I thought I would be. Remote means you have to take a lot into your own charge. Keep that in mind if you're considering a remote program.

    Lighthouse Labs really sticks out of the crowd

    To be honest Lighthouse Labs wasn't in my radar when looking at coding bootcamps in Toronto. I went to each of the better known bootcamps first, and after all my initial meetings to inquire about the program, I was told that it was an "interview" and they were "impressed" by me, and said I will receive a $ discount for their respective bootcamp programs. However, Lighthouse Labs was different. After my initial meeting with them, they proceeded to give me a GRE-like test which I had 15 minu...

    It is a great experience

    My background is in electrical engineering and I attended lighthouse labs web development bootcamp. It is highly intensive and at the same time. highly awarding. The first week I felt overwhelmed but I talked to one of our mentors who was a Lighthouse alumni as well and after that chat, I felt much better and felt that others have the same feeling and I am not the only one who feels under pressure. That made me more confident and I continued my practice to the last minutes of the bootcamp ...

    Very good curriculum

    I had a very good experience at Lighthouse Labs, and believe it was worth the price of admission for myself. Having a strong background in programming going into the bootcamp, it was not too intensive, however, it gives you an opprotunity to add intensity depending on how determined you are to learn and improve. This meant adding my own stretch goals and milestones for some projects, and Lighthouse Labs allows you to be surrounded by experienced developers that can assist you along the way...
