    Overall, this program is what I expected going into it. It is definitely fast-paced but doable. The lessons are meant to be challenging but feel rewarding as you learn. My class was grateful enough to have a really awesome instructor who really knew the material well. Him along with the TAs were really supportive. The only downside to this program was the career services support side. We were told we would have meetings with them and they would be reviewing our career-related submissions. That really hasn't happened for me or my classmates.

    Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us! We're glad our entire instructional team has been so supportive and that you have found the lessons to be rewarding in spite of the challenging material. 

    From your review, we understand that you have not felt as supported by our career services as you had hoped. We do offer in-depth job support by helping participants achieve the 'Seven Milestones to Become Employer Competitive.' Depending on which week your cohort is currently in, there could still be a substantial amount of career services curriculum to be covered. The curriculum includes career coaching through monthly office hours, bi-monthly one-on-one meetings with your Career Director starting approximately one month before the end of the program and continuing for up to three months after, an online Tech Talk panel to network with local industry professionals, a Project Demo Day designed to showcase your final project, as well as nearby professional tech networking, and online workshops to assist learners in becoming Employer Competitive. We hope you've been able to utilize some of these resources and believe you will find the upcoming material to be helpful. 

    We’d love to hear from you directly to see what else we can do at this time to help you feel equipped for success. If you would like, please reach out to us directly at (215) 310-5477. Thank you for your review, we wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors!

    I learned a lot in a very fast amount of time despite being afraid that I might not be able to. The instructors I had were super helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. You really get a good overview of a bunch of different technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, APIs, React, Mongo, etc.) & also you ‘learn how to learn’ when it comes to tech so if you need to ever learn something else on your own, it will be a lot easier. The people you meet are fun & great to work with. Also, you have a lot of freedom with the assignments as far as the themes and topics, which makes them very satisfying to complete. As long as you pay attention in class & always ask when you need help + take the work seriously, I think it’s a great choice.

    Considering the cost and the time spent, I told myself to think of this as more of a semester in school. It was intense and fast paced. Someone without much background will need to put in more time than expected. I did the flex option but I think you need to be able to commit a full time schedule to learn the harder concepts. The online formatting could have been better without cold calling on students to answer questions. However, the instructors are open to help as much as they can.

    Thank you for sharing your review! You're completely right that this is a fast-paced and challenging course, one that will require learners to put in extensive time outside the classroom. We're glad you found our instructional team to be supportive and commend all your hard work. We wish you continued success in all your coding goals!

    The course and instructors are great, and the only negative is career services, which are automated and lacking; I had assumed there'd be more hands-on guidance or in person meet-ups.

    Currently in the program. My initial fear was whether or not I would be able to find a program that also allowed me to have a full-time job. I'm currently working in a tech field but wanted to move into programming and after doing some research found this program. I feel as though I'm learning a lot and will be prepared to job search when I finish the program.

    I signed up for this course not knowing exactly what I wanted to do with my career or my future. After graduating college with a degree in Religion, this course helped me find careers that I didn't know were options for someone like me. I have a comprehensive and diverse portfolio, I feel like I am a competitively eligible web developer, and I have learned more than I had ever hoped.

    If I'm honest, I'm floored by how thorough the instructors have been and how much we all have learned in a few short weeks. I highly recommend this program to anyone looking to change or supplement their career.
