    For over two decades, technology has been changing what organizations look like and how they do business. Across countries, industries, and organizational functions, the impact of digitalization has been immense. However, after 2020 and the global pandemic, there is no doubt now that the future will be driven in a big way by software and coding. Earlier, organizations were waking up to the need to hire web developers, software engineers, and other technology workers to eventually digitalize their organizations. Today, firms are looking to hire many skilled coders to leverage the power of technology for continued business relevance and profitability. One of the most sought-after roles is that of a full stack developer. These coders handle entire product buildouts, including development on software that the client interacts with (front end) and the coding and structuring related to servers (back end). Full stack developers deliver value, agility, and flexibility to an organization’s infrastructure. Previously, developers worried about industry trends and graduating on time to meet them. After 2020, given the surge of positions, the only obstacle to getting hired is the time taken to qualify. With the accelerated MIT xPRO online learning program, this is no longer an issue. The MIT xPRO Professional Certificate in Coding is an immersive full stack coding program offering personalized feedback, live daily office hours with course leaders, and the opportunity to develop a GitHub portfolio for potential employers.

    I would describe this Bootcamp as a: some knowledge and self-taught Bootcamp.

    Professionally,  I have a degree in BS Computer Science and I've been a software engineer for over a decade, focusing more on technologies like Java.

    I decided to take this Bootcamp because I wanted to learn new technologies and I wanted to force myself to complete it but I would say that even though it is described as a 0 experience/knowledge needed if you have some experience or knowledge it would be the best because a lot of the information is left out so you can research it and if you have no clue what to look for, it could be really frustrating.

    On the positive side, modules are pretty interesting and they have slack groups where you get to meet and work with your classmates so you can also start building teamwork skills that are needed in the real world.

    Finally,  they also have some sessions to help you to find jobs and how to get better at interviews so that can be useful for those ones looking for a change in their careers.

    The program gives a strong foundation to become a full-stack developer starting with no experience in the subject.  If you put the time & effort, study the lessons and the additional materials, attend to the live office hours, engage with your classmates & facilitators, and practice what you've learned, you really acquire the skills and knowledge to create great websites/apps

    So in January this year,  I started researching about which industries had more jobs than the right candidates to fill the positions. 

    Coding came up tops so I begun another research on the best institutions to learn how to code. Two days after I had started my search, I started seeing banner adverts of this course on social media. I scheduled a call with a course advisor who was so helpful and answered my questions in great detail. I joined the live information session on this course and after reading on the course instructors and what they have achieved in the coding fraternity, I immediately knew i wanted to study at MiT. 

    The course is very demanding, It's designed in a way that makes you do a lot of research on the curriculum. The course work requires between 15-20 hours per week to complete. There are weekly assignments and quizzes which must be submitted in order to complete the course work for the week. 

    The course is in three parts, the first part is web development which teaches how to layout a website, design it and create a logic for the site. At the end of each part, there's a project that every student must complete as part of the course work. The projects helps you practice what you've been taught.

    The Next Tech platform which is a program we use to submit coding assignments is very opinionated and often leaves you frustrated when its not accepting your code. DO NOT GET FRUSTRATED, if you follow the instructions, next tech will accept the code for submission.

    The best part of this bootcamp for me is the learning facilitators. Three facilitators meet with students 3 times a week at different times. The learning facilitators are so helpful and take their time to explain the concepts. They are like our number one fans and always look out for us. They have Q&A's during their office hours, interact with students on the course platform and are quick to reply emails.

    I'm 20 weeks into this course and though I know I have a lot of learning to do in the area of coding, I often look back and realise how much I have learned about coding. The course also provides mentoring services for its students, as well us prepare you for your job search.

    If you are a self learner, this is the course for you.

    This course is highly professional. I like about having quizzes and guided exercises to work on throughout each module. Professors explain in a practical way, working also on practical examples/exercises. I find also the support/facilitators system working perfectly and giving full and quick support to all students whenever it's needed. Plus, there's plently of office hours videos, where learning facilitators take you through some exercises and some particular coding situatrions/cases.

    When I was planning to join this boot camp, i was littile hesitant since I had a very littile Expierence in coding but faculty, office hours and  course material definitely made it easy to learn and grow in this program. I highly recommend this program to with no coding background people too. They teach from basics and slowly everything will stay making sense.

    In my opinion this course is great for students who work well independently, basically self-taught learners.  If you are looking for a lot of one-on-one attention/help, the VIP treatment, holding your hand to help you early on in your learning this probably isn't the course for you.  There are no classes really, just recorded video some of which is hit or miss (this is why this course is NOT $30K, because it is mostly recorded video).    You get 3 hours of live office hours (which is kind of like a class) a week from one of your learning facilitators (LF) (not an MIT professor...they made the recorded videos).  The LFs are developers who are working in the field now which is great!  It depends on the each LF how you can interact in the live office hour.  Some let you use audio, some only text chat (all on Zoom).

    I like the pace of the course.  It's not rushed like most bootcamps so you can really dig into subjects and gives you time to catch up.  The way material is presented is let's say...different.  It took me a little while to figure it out but what the course likes to do is give you a preview of what we are going to learn BUT they don't really say it's a preview.  So it's easy to freak out but DO NOT FREAK OUT!  Especially the FIRST WEEK.  They threw a ton of JavaScript at us on the official week 1 (the first week or two is just setting up your environment and learning your way around the terminal.)  One huge tip I can give is don't freak out when you get to week 1 because everything they throw at you they will go over in the subsequent weeks (and you have to definitely do some outside study/practice).  Because this course is 32-weeks you have tons of time to study/catch up but you definitely have to put in the work.  Just like anything in life, you get what you put into it.

    The LFs are great and if you reach out to them they will get back to you but don't expect on-demand answers.  The fastest answers are Google of course but also your cohorts.  One of your cohorts will probably create a Slack or Discord server where everyone can help each other out.  If no one does, take the initiative and create one because the course does NOT have an official Slack channel like most bootcamps.  This course uses Canvas which is just a website email...so that can be very slow.  Tech support I believe is with Emeritus in Singapore so it can take 12 hours to get a tech issue reply (like if you are having trouble submitting an assignment.)

    Overall I think this course is great bang for the buck but if you want 40+ hours of live class you are going to have to look elsewhere and shell out some serious cash.  If I was going to pay $20K to $30K I would want my class IN-PERSON because I would get a lot more out of it and it would be easier to form relationships with staff and cohorts.

    One huge piece of advice is that I think no course can teach you everything.  Do not expect that.  You have to do a lot of things to learn this material.  Read docs, watch YouTube videos (a little, don't go crazy with it), read articles but above all else...practice, practice, practice!  BUILD PROJECTS! Don't just copy other peoples projects.  MAKE YOUR OWN PROJECTS!  Or improve the projects you coded along with.  My mistakes, struggle...that's how you learn.

    This course has been a game-changer for me. I've been curious about coding and after doing lessons on Khan Academy, I decided to take the plunge into a boot camp program. I looked at quite a few different options, but this one stood out to me for a few reasons.

    First, the schedule is flexible enough to manage with an unusual work hours. You work at your own pace with new content each week, and the QA board and office hours allow you to ask questions and get feedback. Second, the cost was surprisingly affordable compared to my local universities, and payment plans are also offered. Lastly, MIT is a big name in STEM schools, and it shows in the curriculum. If you want a school that's got some weight behind it and aren't afraid of a challenge, this program is a good choice for you.

    I've learned a tremendous amount about JavaScript, HTML, CSS and we are now covering React. I came into this program very green and it hasn't been easy, but the knowledge and skills I've gained are priceless.

    For those who are interested, I would highly suggest reviewing the core concepts prior to enrollment because it can be overwhelming and some concepts are very abstract if you don't have a background in it. But overall, I believe this course can provide the necessary skills to thrive in a development environment.

    Coming from customer service and retail, I had my try at self learning from other free online materials. This bootcamp has been a good stepping stone into learning software development. Difficulty may depend on personal interests and learning style but overall not too difficult that you can't make it. Instructors are there to help and class size is great for networking. Overall, glad I chose this bootcamp over my other choices.

    I choose this bootcamp for the name recognition of MIT, the broad coverage of the curriculum content, and the reasonable price tag. I could hardly be happier. The content is current, organized effectively, and the lessons are structured in such a way that you you don’t spend the whole time doing a ‘code-along’, but instead understand the problems you are solving as new technologies are introduced. 

    Before this course, I tried to learn the cornerstone web technologies, HTML/CSS/JS independently and struggled to really comprehend web development. Im the first two weeks this course taught me how to use these technologies in concert to finally get everything necessary for this cornerstone of foundational knowledge. 

    I find my fellow students to be extremely engaging in slack/discord chats to work through problems and help troubleshoot when there is an issue for the individual learner. However, the program support and learning facilitators are on top of their game and give comprehensive answers to student question, including why the challenges presented are constructed the way they are. Speaking of the learning facilitators, I responded to one of the weekly surveys expressing my discouragement that I didn’t feel as if a particular week gave me enough to work on as I finished the content extremely quickly. Assuming the surveys were being skimmed for data and not actually read, I thought that maybe the issue I brought up would be ignored. However, I received a direct message from one of the learning facilitators who offered me additional material and supplementary things to study. He even ended up offering me quite a bit of guidance/feedback on a project I put together to help reinforce the concepts I learned in the class. The only downside I’m experiencing is that the program is not self paced and is targeted to those not trying to study full time, ideally working a full-time job concurrently with the course. However, the 32-weeks of steady pacing in the course helps to reinforce the concepts without progressing before comprehension is achieved.

    I'm currently enrolled in the Full Stack Web Development certificate program, almost halfway through. 
    I have a background in engineering and business, but had not coded for ~3 years before starting. 
    The program has impressed me thoroughly thus far. The curriculum is thorough and practical - I talk with current web developers and have found that what I'm learning is sometimes more advanced than what they frequently do. 
    I also appreciate how the course is structured, and that at the end I'll have a github with many valuable projects. 
    If you enjoy remote learning and aren't afraid to get your hands dirty (every once in a while I have to use Google to solve an issue I'm facing), I'd highly recommend this program.

    I am currently enrolled in MIT x Pro Full Stack with MERN and am loving it! This is my first extensive course on coding and it is a challenging yet very well put together course with support and video learning! I think it is well worth the initial investment and can help you learn valuable skills to transfer to a future employer!

Thanks!
