Avg Rating:4.77 ( 811 reviews )

Nucamp is a part-time, 22-week full stack web and mobile development bootcamp in underserved communities across the U.S. and online. Nucamp offers a hybrid learning experience where students learn online during the week, and meet in-person with their instructor and classmates on the weekends. Nucamp is on a mission to make quality education affordable with the low cost of online learning paired with the motivation and support offered by in-person bootcamps. Nucamp also offers a 4-week introduction bootcamp teaching the fundamentals of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, as well as a 17-week front end web and mobile development bootcamp. 

There are up to 12 students per class, and one dedicated instructor. Students learn languages such as Javascript, HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, NodeJS, React, React Native, and MongoDB. Students will work in smaller teams of two to four to collaborate throughout the course and receive important feedback. By the end of the program, students will be capable of taking a project from its inception to developing a Minimum Viable Product (MVP) and move it to a large-scale implementation.

Admission is open to all. To apply for the bootcamp, complete Nucamp's online registration form.

    If you are on a budget and you would like to transition into a new career, this is the course I would recommend. I personally, don't do well with learning on my own, especially with something I've never had any knowledge of. They gave a good structure to follow and I ended up learning more than I did watching Youtube videos. There is a con that comes with the course, unfortunately. For example, the instructor stated that he would be available to help and to just message him. I have messaged him multiple times on different platforms and didn't receive a timely response. That would be my only criticism of the program but I honestly think the positives outweigh the negatives. If you are interested in learning HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, I would definitely look into this cheap alternative.

    Chance really took the time throughout the week to check in on us while we were going through the lessons.  He pushed us to think outside the box and always stress research to find the problem.  I really felt that I have learned a lot in the past four weeks to really take time to step outside yourself and take a breath if you cannot get the solution right away...it is usually staring at you right in the face.

    I loved this course! It was perfect for me. I tried one day of another course before this, and I really prefer nucamp's format. The videos are an ideal length for you to learn a new concept without being overwhelmed. They each have a corresponding exercise for you to really cement the concept in your mind with hands-on building. The one class a week on Saturday is a great schedule, with a brief review and then a hands-on project every week. The instructor is very responsive to questions throughout the week, as are the other instructors from other cohorts on the main Slack channel. I never expected I could make such a good-looking website by the end of 5 weeks, and look forward to learning further skills and eventually the backend component as well.

    I have truly enjoyed my NuCamp experience this far.  I am not in a position in life where going back to school or a fully immersive bootcamp is an option.  My instructor and the student  community have been extremely helpful, and I am looking forward to the next step.

    The flexible schedule helps me learn how to code at a time convenient for me. Price is also a another major factor. NuCamp provides those features to learning code and it is very accommodating to my personal circumstances. I am very happy I chose NuCamp.

    Spectacular program at an unbelievable price.  I took time off from software engineering and had to put my toolset back together before I could return to the field with the confidence necessary to believe I can do the job.  Nucamp pushed me hard but rewarded me with much more than I paid for.  As someone who used to hire engineers, I know I'd give graduates of this program extra points just for being smart enough not to have paid a fortune for schooling that usually does.  They don't sacrifice quality in any way to remain so reasonably priced.  It's almost too good to believe -- but it isn't.  It's just an outlier with a mission to give back more than it takes.  Bravo Nucamp!  I couldn't have been better served...

    Nucamp is a good alternative  to other expensive bootcamps. It still covers necessary materials, and directs you to the right direction. The whole week students study and practice online. On Saturdays there is a four hour workshop in which the instructor wraps up the material for the week which is very helpful to discuss anything regarding the material. If students have any questions during weekdays, they are still able to contact their instructors via slack mostly. Overall, I am happy with Nucamp. They also have career services which I did not use so far because I am not at that point yet.

    Nucamp is definitely a self-learn program that expects a lot of time and energy, but the fast-paced process and scaled difficulty of the program, as well as the "learning by doing" focus make it a wonderful bootcamp. It is not for the faint of heart, but if you are willing to put in the time and effort, Nucamp is probably the best advanced bootcamp for the price you will find (especially with its flexibility of online or in-person courses and with the frequency of cohorts available).

    I chose nucamp because it would give me a step by step guide of what I need to know to land a job and provided structure regarding what information was important and what wasnt.

       My review for the Web Development Fundamentals course was generally positive, with some caveats. It does give you a nice intro to the 3 basic programming languages of web development(HTML, CSS, javaScript). Overall, the value is decent for an introductory course. I might consider other educational options before diving in further.
        Here's what I liked: My teacher was very knowledgable and generous with his time. I appreciated having a structure of material to learn, moving towards a goal(I feel this can be hard to establish for a raw beginner). The Slack community is awesome(provides exposure to developers at/above your skill level and other instructors not assigned to you to help you through problems). Can't say enough about the positive community. The extra resources provided to you with each lesson(this just really saves you some Googling, but I appreciated this). The price and commitment level is more than reasonable for someone who doesn't know if this is for them. 
        Here's the not so great: The online materials are no better than freely available online resources(maybe worse than some in terms of clarity). The course is a bit rushed and could easily be 1-2 weeks longer to give you enough time to get the basics of this skill. The collaborative coding aspects are not as emphasized as I believe they should be, as working directly with is an essential skill to master when learning to code. You will likely be working on your projects for much of the weekend if, like me, you want them to come out looking good. This isn't really pointed out when you sign up, so plan for that. Also, I found daily hourly commitment needed was understated to understand the material presented. I had to do a lot of supplemental reading, just to get my head around some of the concepts. The CSS portion of the program is particularly cursory, so you will definitely need more instruction in this area(even to get the basics).
