    Experience of A Lifetime!!!

    So I found out about this bootcamp in June of 2018. Then, in July of 2018 I gave Penn my lifes savings and set out on the experience of a lifetime. The intake process was straight to the point.

    Coding Bootcamp

    Coding bootcamp has helped me in numerous ways. It was a wonderful journey to learn the different concepts of programing technologies seeing how fast technology is growing. Before I go further I would like to say Hats off to the teaching team, they are excellent and was always ready to help. They were amazing and they took their time to guide me into understanding the concepts and they have good knowledge of the subject. It has helped me to go deeper into learning and understanding the fun...

    Great Course

    TL,DR: Penn LPS Coding Boot Camp is a great opportunity to quickly learn a great deal of material and recieve help when needed from qualified instructors and TAs.

    I went from knowing next to nothing about web development to being able to create Full Stack applications on my own. It was certainly an intense experience and a number of my cohort dropped out because of the break-neck pace but it is manageable if you ask for help when you need it, remain disciplined with time manageme...

    Great Thus Far

    At the time of this review I am about 9 weeks away from graduation. As the title mentions, my experience has been great up to this point.

    Some of the hightlights so far are great academic support, setting and location, administrating staff, and classmates. Our instructors and TA's really seem to have a vested interest in our success, they often make themselves available after hours. The Pennovation building is spacious, conveniently located in the city, with lots of parking. Some...

    The Instructors and TA's we've had have all been fantastic and extremely knowledgeable about the material. I'm 4 months in and looking back to October when I started I can't believe how much I've already learned, even if sometimes I think I'm lost. The pace is definitely as fast as advertised, but the staff makes sure not to move onto a new topic without answering all questions.

    Penn LPS Coding Boot Camp

       My experience at Penn's Coding Boot Camp has been great. The course structure is outstanding. Students are not graded through tests and quizzes, but through homework. The homework is set up in a way where students can apply the skills you learned in class, proving that you can do this, despite the fact you are just seeing the material for the first time. 

       Since I take the part time class, times range from 3-4 hours, but classes don't feel that long because we are always doi...

    I totally recommend this class.  I had zero coding experience before I enrolled. The skill yet that I have learned and the base it gave to me learn other languages was amazing!!!  My biggest issue was that I was unable to communicate with devs at work let alone understand what they were doing.  This course provided me such a good base to work from.

    I had basic knowledge about MySQL before I joined the bootcamp. Whole program covers a lot of information & knowledge that you need to know to become a junior developer.

    Instructors are very experienced and detail orientated. All the people in the class are motivated to learn, so it is defnitely better than lock yourself in your room and figure out everything on your own.
