      My 12 weeks at _nology were incredibly enjoyable, and I have come out of it with so many more skills than when I began. The course is structured really well, and the engaging methods of training are super effective at getting the best out of every single person on the course.

      The overall working atmosphere was a massive positive. Everybody is happy to help everybody else, and there is a real emphasis on making everybody the best developer that they can become in the 12 weeks. Collaborating as a group is much more enjoyable than everybody keeping themselves to themselves. The course is hard work, but the team environment makes it much less stressful (as do the regular social events!).

      The coding ability that everyone possesed by the end of the course was amazing, especially given that no prior experience is required. The 12 weeks begins with covering the fundamentals and the basics of programming through lots of small, fun coding challenges. By the time the more complex stuff comes up, everyone has been given a real confidence boost by the trainers. Working on genuine client projects towards the middle and end of the course gives valuable experience. Throughout the entire 12 weeks, the trainers were always willing to put in the extra hours to help with any coding issues that anybody had.

      Soft skills are also vastly improved. One of my personal favourite activities across the whole course was delivering a TED-style talk to a small group. Soft skills are super important in any industry, not just tech, and _nology certainly filled me with much more confidence when it comes to soft skills.

      Overall, you will leave _nology feeling like a well-rounded and confident developer, armed with plenty of valuable skills to start a career in tech. It is not an opportunity to be missed!

      I attended Nology London campus (January - April 2020). Entry criteria was super lenient. During the assessment day, you build a small game and coach would asses your problem solving approach. Pre-course was based on some videos on Youtube. I did not receive any feedback for pre-course technical tasks.. Though, before joining the course I were told to have a  mentor. 

      In my cohort, we  only learned Javascript  and React. whereas, the course outlines I received, included  REDEX and Angular too. Maybe it is a marketing tool to advertise  more tech tools and later teach less.  Later on when I raised this point;  nology management came with a reason that they keep on changing the course content as per industry requirement. In that case, you only email course content that will be covered on campus Teaching less tools mean you should make a refund to trainees. 

      About teaching quality, I liked Matt and Shea teaching style. I found them very flexible and patient with trainees. You can ask hundreds of questions to Matt, his approach will always be with a smile. The best thing, I noticed about Shea. He pays equal attention to all the trainees. However, the lead coach teaching style was bit disappointing. He is an excellent developer but not a good coach. He has a tendency to give an impression if you are a  least and most favourite trainee, that is the worst thing you want to face in an intense bootcamp. He was reported to HR for his unfair treatment to a trainee. Nology HR is quite professional. They took the matter so seriously and investigated the matter. As a result, the coach had to apologise to trainee. The reason to write this here is, in case if he does it to any trainee in future. Nology should provide him some soft skills training.

      My Cohort was so lucky. We had two trainees , Andy and Dhiren. They joined the course with excellent understanding of JS, React, Python. Both of them were super helpful. I would like to say, a big thanks to them.

      The job support was extremely disappointing. At the end of the course, we were allocated  Opus recruiters and funny part is, non of the recruiter contacted me. There was supposed to be a recruitment day at the end of the course. Unfortunately, no employers committed their presence and it was canceled. There were 15 trainees in my cohort. Nology found jobs for 3 trainees. In later months, two trainees found a job on their own. To my knowledge, presently 9 of us are still looking for a job. The course was job guaranteed. Only one trainee received a refund. I must add, poor hiring partner network. 

      It took me months to decide if I should write this  review or not. As i wanted to forget about nology and taking as a life learned lesson but  unconsciously, I  was blaming myself as a selfish person. Today, I got the courage to speak about it. I joined nology by reading some outstanding graduates reviews.  Later on I found, some of them they work for Nology. 

      A small tip to join any bootcamp, is to contact their graduates on linkedin and know their opinion about a bootcamp. It is only my opinion about Nology. Please you do your own research before joining the bootcamp. 

    Thanks!
