      I had a great experience with this program! I just want to say thank you to Aly and the team for being patient and helpful with me and helping me get through!

      This is a great learning platform, where you will be surrounded by a group of people that actually care about your educational experience. I had a close working relationship with my counselor who helped me through the learning process.

      Great program both professors were well knowledge & cared about their students. Many different subjects to learn about & to go over. Over 50+ labs, not sure the exact number, practice exams for each subject, online lecture videos, & live professor classes weekly. Would recommend to a friend or family member.
      Michael my coach and Aly my Academic Advisor both have been great help.
      Thank you so much and strongly recommend.

      Very expensive for what you can either learn for free on YouTube or learn much more from creators on Udemy. Video classes where very repetitive and if you can’t make them and need to watch the video you are out of luck if the teacher didn’t show the entire code on the screen. 
      I emailed the teachers asking for the code or for future videos to take a second and scroll the whole screen for those watching the videos and never heard back from anyone. 
      The job placement department practically doesn’t exist, I heard from them two times in about two months. 
      The person who is supposed to help with interviewing took months to reply stating “somehow your email got placed in my spam folder”. 
      During the courses I asked for help, the helper joined my zoom session left after about 30 seconds and told me to share my GitHub repo and he would look at it later, he didn’t. 
      I got him to join my zoom session again a week later the same process occurred but after the second time never heard from him again. 

      This bootcamp has been a complete disaster, I’m certain it has been better for other but my experience has been horrendous, I am currently trying to contact customer service and speak to them about many options including refund policies. 

      From my experience I would not recommend, save money and learn from a better place.

      Hello
      I just wanted to report that this school is very deceitful and is not worth attending. I am a student who graduated successfully and the job placement is non-existent (which is a school that states 100 % job placement or refund) I am still waiting for a response on my refund but may have to sue them. Again do not waste your time with this school. They are also very non-transparent. 0 stars!

      Quickstart boot camp is really affordable and flexible. I am taking the web development boot camp and my  instructor is Krishna. He has great experience in IT field and his way of  teaching is excellent.  Also my academic advisor , Moses Effendi is  really helpful.He replies to the emails quickly,try to understand the issues and helps in resolving that as soon as possible.Overall this boot camp is really good and is a great step for beginners to learn programming languages.

      Prior to joining this bootcamp, I had no technical background. I was working in the field of Customer Service in a Call Center but working over there made me realize I wasn't learning anything new and that is when I developed the idea of acquiring a new skill. After much research I decided to select the Florida Atlantic University's Bootcamp for Web Development through Quickstart.

      For someone who had no prior experience in the field, this bootcamp seemed perfect for me. Right from the Enrollment process, till the point where I connected with my Academic Advisor, it was all smooth sailing. These guys even provide support through an instructor that is available on a need basis. I would specially like to thank my instructor who, according to me is one of the most learned mentors I have worked with. Zsolt truly went above and beyond to help the whole class out. With his help and a little combined studies, I was able to quickly get started and work through the curriculum and build my knowledge along the way. I have learned so much during my time in the Bootcamp, all the while feeling supported, through bi-weekly mentor sessions, weekly self-paced, and one on one support when needed. I have just finished the bootcamp and I am looking into possible opportunities for my official career change. I would recommend this course to anyone that is looking to get into web development.

      I signed up for Quickstart's Full Stack Web Development program, and was lied to almost immediately; The program brochure they had sent me listed three (3) weekly live tutoring sessions when in reality there were only ever two (2) per week. When I had asked about this while requesting a refund, they told me not to mention this fact as it would "hurt my chances at getting a refund." I travel for my job throughout the week and was relying on the weekly Saturday sessions to help catch up and discuss if I fell behind because of work.

      Moving into the actual content of the program, it is hilariously vague and outdated. So much so they had to "re-vamp" their content for 2021. They had attempted to administer this course without giving any serious attention to JavaScript, one of the key components in understanding Web Development. Despite being listed as a course module, instead we were given a paltry slideshow and a PDF to a JavaScript textbook which we were given SEVEN (7) weeks late (more on that later). The React/Redux modules have almost zero meaningful information to actually understand them, and the MySQL/PHP modules and videos date back to 2011/2012. Not exactly the cutting edge of content as they promised. The second half of the course falls flat completely.

      By far the worst part of this company is their utter lack of support and communication. They have no problems ignoring you for weeks on end. I was missing two weeks worth of courses from the website (necessary to the project that was upcoming), and it took two weeks for them to appear, literally on the due date for the project that required them. When I asked how I could possibly catch up now that I was three weeks behind on content through no fault of my own, they shrugged their shoulders and said sorry.

      This severe lack of communication is endemic and present in every person I've spoken to at Quickstart. Every one of them will leave you in the dark and then completely forget who you are when you try to get in touch again; I had asked staff member Moses about going through a refund process in December and I got a call from him randomly in late January asking how I was doing with the coursework, with him seemingly confused that I was asking for a refund. He had completely forgotten I had even asked.

      If you pay in full for the course, you are promised a new HP laptop by Quickstart. This was promised by my coordinator Alex. This is not written ANYWHERE and I had to follow up for weeks in order to actually get one.

      After talking to Moses about a refund, I was then sent over to Sam who after weeks of ignoring me said I'd be getting a refund! Except he had me confused with someone else who had paid in installments, as opposed to paying in full. So even the sales team in charge of actual administration work is hopelessly incompetent at solving your problems, will promise you a refund and then say "never mind we had the wrong person."

      Last and certainly not least was our instructor who would come into sessions unprepared, sometimes spending the entire 2 hour lecture on debugging and configuring rather than course content (occurred multiple times). He didn't administer our JavaScript textbook until seven (7) weeks after it was supposed to be distributed. He was unorganized and impatient towards students with technical issues or general misunderstandings.

      Now after literal months of negotiating a refund, they have offered me this; The chance to re-enroll in their re-vamped bootcamp. Except this would mean that all of my existing credits would be wiped and I'd have to start at zero again, taking the full 6 month period to complete.

      If you've read this far, please for your own sake save your money and AVOID QUICKSTART! I had only signed up for this course because it was backed by Texas A&M Kingsville and had no idea Quickstart was not truly affiliated with them (I've had zero correspondence with anyone from Texas A&M). These people will take your money and run away with it. If I can save at least one person from falling into their trap it will have been worth it.

      I was in the same cohort as Andrew Dunnam and can verify his experiences. Also, I have a plethora of emails detailing how uncommunicative and uncaring people at multiple levels of this company are and am more than willing to share them with whoever asks.

      Great program for any beginner in coding. Highly recommended. 

      I was a laid off oil & gas engineer who decided to take a leap into the software industry. After doing my research everywhere, QuickStart best fit my options. 100% online, at your own pace, with assistance as needed, not too expensive. As a student, I felt like I was able to keep myself in a system to where I  was able to learn from the basics and build my way up to more complex languages. 

      I just completed this course and am currently looking forward to see what life has to offer!

      Please do your due diligence before attending their bootcamp, I paid over $6000 and spent my entire bootcamp being ignored by the instructor and multiple quickstart employees. It was so bad I had to use youtube and purchase courses on udemy to grow an understanding of how to code. I ran into issues and fell behind by weeks because when I asked for help directly or on the help board no one responded. I would not tell anyone to take this bootcamp, you are better off learning by yourself because that is what they made me do. I paid over $6000 to be ignored and learn very little from their courses. Please, do not use this service, I do not want to see anyone else fall into the same situation I am in.

      P.S.
      The job guarantee is only if you have a bachelor's degree, but they do not tell you this. They will tell you about the job guarantee program, but will fail to mention needing a bachelors, do not fall for the trap.
