    Best Decision

    In November of 2021, I decided to take UPenn's FinTech programming bootcamp. As a derivatives trader, I wanted the ability to work with data in a way I couldn't without knowing how to program. Little did I realize that I would get SO much more from this course. The instructor has been one of the most enlightening, energetic, and brilliant individuals I have ever met -- and I learned so much more than just how to write in Python. He broke down concepts like statistics, artificial intellig...

    The program was super! Very well organized with an excellent instructor and teaching assistance. Also, the additional help from the 1:1 tutoring really helped me get through the course. If you are interested in full-stack engineering, then I can highly recommend this program.

    There are a of things to say about this bootcamp. Although it's affiliated with Penn University, it's worth mentioning that it is run by Trilogy Education services. Despite this, you can still provide the UPenn name on your resume and Linkedin. The certificate will also be from the University of Pennsylvania.

The instruction team was absolutely superb - knowledgeable, organized, always available to answer questions during office hours (before and after class sessions).

    A fresh start!

    I expected this program to introduce a lot of concepts, programming languages, tools, and techniques but I did not expect the level of detail that would be covered as quickly as it was!  This program is very well planned and structured.  We did learn to jog before we sprinted, but we needed to keep running along to keep up!! 
    I’ve learned so much that I ran out of room on LinkedIn!!  This program challenges you to step outside of your comfort zone and to be a part of something and not...

    Graduate

    I came into this wanting a change in careers, I was no longer passionate in my current position and I felt I needed a change in my life path. So with very minimal coding experience (small amounts of html from when I was younger), I decided to take the plunge and it was the best decision I have ever made! Quincy was my instructor along with Dan every other Saturday. They, along with the AMAZING TA’s, had made my journey, although challenging, a little bit less frustrating and SO supportiv...

    Awesome!

    I came into this with literally no knowledge of the subject, just having computer service and gaming experience! I learned so much during the course and feel ready to join the workforce! The teachers and teacher assistants were top notch and I would definitely advise anyone to join this bootcamp! Having the UPenn name just adds it's own luster!

    Changed my life for the best

    I had zero coding experience before enrolling in this BootCamp. My husband thought I would be good at it and as a teacher (in my former life), I love to learn. Well, it turns out that this course changed my life for the best. Ed and Anthony were my instructors. Ed saw my potential and convinced me to pursue web development as a career. Well, he was right and I ended up getting a job as a developr at a large financial company a month before the program ended. I would not be as successful as...

    Exhaustive Program with detailed topics and snippets

    I was very skeptical about joining the bootcamp but joining Penn LPS coding bootcamp turned out to be a good decision. I am a seasoned Java programmer and this bootcamp gave me the chops to become a full stack developer. The curriculum was well designed keeping the lack of programming experience in students. The program encouraged me to go and explore new technologies and methodologies and better programming standards in the fast changing full stack world. It has given me the chops to coor...

    An excellent program!

    Prior to attending the program, I didn't have much experience with coding. And now, I'm so proud to introduce myself as a Software Engineer to people, thanks to this 24-week program. It was one of the most challenging courses I've ever taken but also the most rewarding experience I've done. With the assistance and dedication of the instructional staff and Bernard (the Student Success Manager), I know a lot of students in my cohort have also landed their dream jobs in Tech.
