    Hi, my name is Jonathan and i attended the Rutgers Boot-camp.  The Rutgers Jersey City part-time program has a great support system. Kevin Ferguson the lead teacher is very knowledgeable and works in the field he is teaching. When i attended we had two great TA's Francisco and Kristen De La Rosa. They were always there to help; they even would respond to me on off days, not just office hours. The student success manager Christie Nadratowski, really cares about us. She would always check in on us, send funny meme's to us on slack, and most importantly, she listens and i feel she truly cares about us. The program is a bit fast paced but every class is recorded and you get to keep those when you leave and the team are always available for help. I truly recommend this course for beginners and also for those who already have experience. This course is for everyone.

    I worked as a manager for a call center for about 9 years. With a wife and a child coming along during that time, it became harder financially for us, and I considered a career change, but I felt stuck at the job and didn't know how to go about it. In August of 2019 I had received a brochure on Rutgers Coding Bootcamp, and I became interested as I researched more about the industry, but I almost let it get away from me when I found that the class schedule couldn't work with my work schedule.

    Come September, our office closed down and I was laid off. This ended up being both a blessing and a curse: I was out of a job, which is never easy, but it opened up the opportunity to take the jump into the Bootcamp, so I registered for the part time Full Stack program from December to June.

    This was one of the most challenging and thrilling experiences I've had. I learned that I REALLY enjoy the logical process and problem solving that comes with coding, and it felt natural for me to implement. The struggles were very real, but it made the victories so much sweeter. I made a lot of good friends along the way, and despite the fact that COVID 19 came and interrupted our lives, it didn't stop me from pushing forward to finish the course. By the end, not only have I felt incredibly accomplished, but I discovered that this was something I knew I was meant to do.

    For anyone taking the bootcamp, my advice is that, just like anything that we are learning for the first time, it's going to start off as a frustrating experience because no one knows anything. What's great about the bootcamp is that you will have a LOT of support: on top of your instructors and Teacher Assistants, you'll have Student Success Managers that will help guide and encourage you along the way, especially when things get tough. Tutors are available in case there's something you don't quite understand. Career Services help to make sure that by the time you're done with the bootcamp, you're ready to jump back into the job hunt. Take advantage of all of the services that are offered to you, because everyone there is working hard to see you succeed. And believe me when I say you'll feel incredible once you've overcome the challenges the bootcamp throws at you - probably the best kind of rush and excitement I've ever felt. Last but not least, don't give up - try and try and keep trying. You'll be so surprised at the progress you've made. Just know your expectations about the course - it is NOT EASY. Knowing that can help you mentally as you reach your goals.

    Good luck to everyone! This was a wonderful experience for me and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to do something different in their lives.

    So I took the data science course, I'll say what we were taught was some what relevant but my class specifically was always behind, eventually they replaced the professor in the middle of the program and we ended with different educators for each weekends. This put a lot of people behind, or original educator should have been replaced earlier not when we were in the middle of a new language. I ended up not showing up anymore since I had to do all the work on my own anyways. The TA's were awesome I well say. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone, save your money it's not what your looking for. I ended up getting a job in automation but that's because I taught my self the information I needed, not even a language taught in class ( C+). Tldr: waste of money, better off saving that money and self learning. Wish my class could get there money back a lot ended up dropping out.

    Thank you for your feedback! We regret your bootcamp experience did not live up to your expectations.

    From your review, we understand that you were not satisfied with the instructional support you received. Our program has an intensive, multi-part vetting process for instructors, requiring a minimum of three years' experience as an active practitioner in the tech industry — however, we understand that not all teaching styles resonate with all students. In order to ensure quality instruction, we measure our instructor success based on participant feedback, video audits of their teaching, and classroom assessments.

    Like you noted, your cohort did experience an instructional change and we worked hard to ensure students would have the best tools and instruction to be successful during this time. We strived to make these changes a seamless transition, but we know instructional changes can impact the learning experience. We're glad to know you felt supported by your TAs. 


    It's our goal for all individuals to feel equipped and confident in their skills upon leaving our program, so we'd love to hear from you directly to see how else we can reinforce your knowledge or support your current role. If you would like, please reach out to us at (732) 430-2144.

    As Oracle database developer with many years of experience, I took decision to upgrade my skills with latest technologies for data analysis and machine learning. I am fully satisfied and feeling confident with my decision after completing the course. The course is perfectly designed to get full hands on with concept wise activities. In additionn to great teaching of concepts, the course is equipped with full of class actvities, home work assignment and multiple projects at various levels. I got full confidence each week of the course after the class activities and home work completion on topic that is covered during that week. As student we need an extra effort during this 24 week period to be in class and reviewing the topics each week to be in pace with course. This course really helped me a lot to apply the new technologies in my current work and gave me lot of confidence for future.
    The Instructor , Teaching Assistants ,Student Success Manager and everyone involved from enrolling to graduation day are excellent with full support and response that you need all the time. I strongly recommend this course for those who are looking for career in latest data analysis technologies. Thank you for all the staff for Great Offering that is proven as successfull programme for many students.

    I started the bootcamp with a vague understanding of basic Java and experience with HTML that I hadn't used in years, and three months after graduating I landed a MERN stack job making $65k/yr.

    I did not really utilize the career assistance, so I can't speak to how effective or ineffective it is.

    I signed up to this bootcamp just in the hope of learning something new and make myself familiar with the latest technolgies but I came out with so much more. I was looking forward to each class, each homework and each project throughout the course, the curriculum is quick paced and that is what keeps us on our toes and make us give our 100%. The short deadlines, the late nights, the group projects everything was worth it. The instructors were amazing, extremely knowledgable and encouraging, the TAs always helpful, the student success managers always there to give a ear whenever we had issues. I graduated feeling a lot confident about myself and my coding abilities, I would recommend this course to anyone who is up for challenges and have a zest for learning!

    I entered this program very green and very nervous. I had little experience coding and was embarking on a new career in a new field. It's truly incredible all that I have learned and accomplished in six months. My instructor, tutor, and TAs were wonderful - so patient and smart - even when I felt stressed I never felt alone. I entered knowing only HTML and CSS. Now I can build a server and React app - amazing! My confidence has soared and I have made a family in my cohort that I am forever thankful for. I am excited to start my career in web development and I have the strength and support of the Rutgers Bootcamp to thank for my preparedness.

    If you're thinking of registering my advice is - DO IT! 

    If you're enrolled my advice is - install the slack app on your phone so you're always up to date with shared resources and support, take advantage of the free tutoring, and make time to stay for office hours. 

    You CAN do it! And there's so much help if you need it!

    Working in HR for 6 years in different industries, interviewing hundreds of people, I think this is enough for me to understand "You'll need this in the future", "this", I mean, the developer mindset. Take a look at the "Zen of Coding", you will understand why a programmer mindset can help you in lots of ways ----whether it is a challenging software problem or “hacking” other aspects of your lives like travel planning or winning the game in Dave & Buster's or relationships.

    I got a management degree (yep, not a science degree) and zero experience in coding. But all these "disadvantages" did not stop me. Because when I thought deeply about the kind of work I truly love, I realized I’m happiest when I have my head down, solving problems. And taking Rutgers Bootcamp Program is a great decision I made to help my career change. I’ve never pushed myself as a learner as much as I’ve had to in the last year. I learned:

    • Languages: JavaScript, HTML, CSS, SQL.
    • Frameworks/Libraries: React.js, Node.js, jQuery, Handlebars, Express, SCSS, Responsive Design, Bootstrap.
    • Software/Engines/System/Deployment: MySQL, MongoDB, Git; Heroku, Netlify.

    And most valuable part of this program is you will learn how to "learn" and how to destructing the assignments. I want to give a shout-out to instructor Alex and TAs (Andrew, Z, and Brian). 

    So if you’re at that career change crossroads to become a programmer, scared to take the leap—take it. It’s never going to get easier, but it will get less scary as soon as you take that first step. This program is definitely the first-step worth taking.

    Prior to taking the Bootcamp I was creating websites using Wix/shopify/weebly etc. for clients and wanted to understand more about what went into building a website and hosting the site myself. I used to dabble in code back in myspace days so when I saw Rutgers was having a part time bootcamp I jumped on the opportunity. I liked the fact that I could still work my fulltime job and attend the course. 

    Compared to other Bootcamps I saw online Rutgers was close to my work/home and a name I trusted. The class goes over different languages like HTML, CSS, Javascript, jQuery, Bootstrap, ajax, MySQL and more. All of these languages will be helpful to know through my Web Dev journey and I am greatful I have had such a great experience learning the basics of these programming languages. 

    My professor Alex Rosenkranz and all the TAs (Brian, Z, Andrew), are always working with you and push you when you want to slack off. I had a great experience everytime I went to class.

    I would (and already have) highly recommend Rutger's Coding Bootcamp to friends/family/strangers.

    After only 2 thirds of the bootcamp, I landed a job as a web developer at the United Nations. Many, many of my colleauges landed jobs at Amazon, Chase and became React Developers and Software Engineers at some big names companies. The support you'll receive is beyond exceptional, the materials will really prepare you to the real job market needs and demands. Excellent experience. Excellent support during and after bootcamp. 

    Here is a video about me that Rutgers Coding Bootcamp has done: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ID0NSHBZa4&t=1s 

    You can receive a support from the CEO of the company, an amazing guy with intelligent outspoken and humble personality. Amazing team. I loved each and every one of them. I don't know what's amazing about them but you feel that all of these people are gathered around you for you to succeed. They push you to succeed and they go above and beyond what's needed to make sure that you are receiving a second to none quality of education. 

    Do you need a bootcamp?

    Absolutely yes. Retooling is a must in todays day in time. Every 4-5 years you must retool and sharpen your skills to stay on top of the fast changing technology. 

    Can any bootcamp provide the right retooling to you?

    Absolutely Not. I have done my homework very, very well before signing up to Rutgers bootcamp. I have collected data about each and every school in the NYC-Jersey region and I didn't choose Rutgers bootcamp for a random reason. I used to live in CT and I moved my entire family to Jersey to attend this very bootcamp and not any other one.

    I took this bootcamp six months after getting my undergraduate degree in Mathematics because I didn't have the skills I needed to the job I wanted. This was after declaring that I wouldn't go back to school for at least 2 years! I am so happy I went back on that declaration! The six months that I spend learning coding were so fun! I learnt so much and had a phenomenal support team. The skills I learnt in the bootcamp help me greatly in my current job (which I absolutely love doing!) and I'm so thankful to my instructor and my TAs for all the help they provided me!

    I was looking for a career change and decided to go into programming after my research in many career options. Rutgers Coding Bootcamp had the best learning and career pathways and i do not regret a dime i spent with them. 
    My instructor was the best and so are the other instructors.. They all have an open door policy and with a great learning and teaching environment so you do not feel left out. I learnt so much and when it came to opportunities they offered it to me as it came.
    They provide you the materials and the rest is for you to work hard to put it together. That encouraged me a lot and boost my confidence to. They have internal opportunities such as teaching assistants and tutoring that helped individuals like me to return a teaching and learning favor to others. 
    I owe my knowledge and current job to the career services team who provided me with the tools i need to succeed on the job market whether looking for a job or going through an interview process.
