- Remote Fullstack Course absolutely life changing- 9/21/2020Jared Valle • Entrepeneur (Self-Employed Owner) • Graduate • Course: Full Stack .Net Back-End with React Front End • Campus: Los Angeles • Verified via GitHubBefore the course, I had always had an interest in programming. I have always dabbled in a few languages but the way things connected eluded me and I had no idea how to solve even the simplest programming task. I did the Remote Fullstack course and now I am literally about to publish the first web app ever, and I did the programming for the frontend, middleware (c#.net) and the backend. I feel extremely confident in my abilities. The instructors have a big emphasis on self-learning, so be aware that you will not have someone giving lectures or holding your hand the whole time. But you will learn the process of troubleshooting complex programming issues and digging through documentation and programming. The teachers are always there to help give guidance and feedback along the way. 100% recommend!
- Sabio Changed My Life- 9/15/2020Richard Comeau • Associate Software Engineer • Graduate • Campus: Online • Verified via LinkedInI was in the military for seven years and had a job lined up that would allow me to finish my degree in Management in Information Systems. It was a great plan- till COVID 19 hit. A lot of things changed, and the job I had lined out at separation fell through. I decided that I need to make a hard pivot and make a change. I looked through my VA benefits and found that I could receive funding for technical training. I explored my option, and while researching, I found Sabio. I did an info session and quickly decided to put all my chips into this career path.
You do a free Pre Work course that ensures that you have the base level skills to do well in the program. At the end of the Pre Work, you do an assessment. If you do well, you are chosen and accepted to participate in an incredible and intensive program.
Ensure that you have all your personal affairs inline because for the next three months, it is 12 hours days Monday-Friday and an 8 hour day on Saturday. You'll be pushed to learn a great deal of stuff in a small window to perform challenging tasks. It sounds like a lot because it is. However, do you want to change your career into a high paying job with a bright future? Then it is worth it.
At a certain point in the program, you will develop an application for an entrepreneur. They'll have demands and needs that you'll have to fulfill. Doing work for an entrepreneur is great because you are now essentially working as a contractor on a real product and working in an Agile environment.
There is assistance during and at the end to get into employment. Just because you finish the program doesn't mean that your time with Sabio is over. They continue to engage with you. There are other opportunities to listen to speakers, enroll again for certifications, and be surrounded by dedicated programmers. Sabio Nation is incredible.
I got my first job as an Associate Software Engineer position 11 days after graduation. This position provides for my family and puts me on a path for many different opportunities. I can't express the amount of gratitude I have for Liliana and Gregorio. I went from no options after the Navy to being a desirable worker in the tech space.
- Don't Make the Same Mistake- 8/13/2020Jacob Washington • Student • Course: Full Stack .Net Back-End with React Front End • Campus: Orange County • Verified via LinkedInFor those of you looking for a quick summary, Sabio is... a bust. You're lured in with excellent marketing, a plethora of well produced testimonials, and, if you're like me, the rap video starring the school's cofounder and CTO is the straw the breaks the camel's back. "This is the perfect coding school for me," I thought. But, just like a damsel awaiting her prince in shining armor, my expectations were too high.
Things started off well. I was a VA student using my VOC Rehab benefits to cover tuition, and Liliana and Gregorio were eager to have me on board. They made exceptions for me, allowing me an extra month of Prework and access to the Irvine campus while it was supposed to be closed (Covid-19). I found myself a bit frustrated with the Prework process and lack of access to live instruction, but they assured me that once I was in bootcamp, my instructors would be available to guide me as much as I might need. And so I pressed on through the Prework, taking them at their word, passed the entrance exam with only one incorrect answer, and was excited to start the bootcamp that following Monday.
Monday came, and I was ready. I'm the type of student that's eager to jump in, is the first to speak up when asked for input, and I'm not afraid to encourage and support peers who need encouragement and support. I'm confident that if you asked any person in my cohort (C88), they would agree that, up until the final month of training, the characteristics I've assigned myself are true. But slowly, along the way, I grew increasingly discouraged, and as much I've tried to find my own fault in it, I cannot, at this point, deny that Sabio's failure to provide patient, positive, and meaningful instruction, as well as their tendency to intimidate and bully student's who're unhappy with their pedagogy, ultimately drove my discouragement to disillusion.
The first time I spoke up, it was too late. It was July 6th (nearly 4 months into my time at Sabio, counting Prework), and I sent Gregorio a private message on Slack, detailing my growing sense of despair. Instructors on the Q did not take the time to ensure I understood a solution to a problem, rather they solved it for me or gave such vague guidance that I found myself more confused. On the Q, instructors frequently seemed bothered by my questions and lack of understanding, and I was met with condescending tones often after waiting an hour or more to even ask my question. The Wiki (online reference guide for code) was more a collection of code snippets, rather than something I could turn to for deeper understanding of things I needed to grasp. I felt, strongly, that while others may have been able to work through these barriers, I was "slipping through the cracks." And those were my words to Gregorio. I pleaded for the instruction that I needed, deserved, and used invaluable time and resources to attain, and the response I got? "I told you so."
Gregorio went pointed me back to the orientation videos in which he tells you to prepare for feeling like you can't do it. But if he'd at all took the content of my message seriously, he'd have clearly seen that I was confident in my ability to make it, confident that I could learn the skills they claim to teach and confident that I would be, in less than a years time, a Full Stack Developer with no prior background in tech. But rather than asking that his instructors be more patient, rather than asking that they adapt their attitudes and approach to teach briefly, to support a student who wanted to learn skills they possessed badly, I was told that I should drop the course. "Listen," Gregorio said. "If you're not confident that things are going to work out by now, then you should just drop the course." He went on to explain all the ways in which he felt I failed as a student. I didn't ask questions well. I didn't make sense of the Wiki the way I should have. I shouldn't have been so sensitive to the instructors passive-aggressive, dismissive, and belittling tones, because people in tech have strong personalities. I felt ambushed. I felt defeated. I felt that in asking for help, I would receive it. And instead I was scolded and rebuked. But I'm one to always put a positive spin to things. I tried to see it from Gregorio's perspective, and convinced myself that should I head his advice, I could still come out of Sabio with the knowledge and ability to creative beautiful, responsive, scaleable web applications and land my first gig as a Web Developer.
Fast forward to August, I've headed all of Gregorio's advice, and find myself essentially in the same place. My graduation date is set for the 14th, and I can build components in React, but not build a React App. I can tell you what I need to build an API on .Net, but I can't actually build it. The only place I truly felt like the training clicked, was in building databases in SQL, and that's really not much more impressive than learning to count to 10. And so, when Gregorio sent me an email on August 11th asking why I hadn't been very active on the slack channels or morning standup meetings, I told him that I had not made progress. That I felt disappointed in the quality of instruction and training I received, and that all the same issues I'd said were contributing to my sense of despair in July had consisted, and prevented me from completing my training with satisfactory competence.
And that's when they really let me down. Without my knowledge, Gregorio and Liliana contacted my Voc Rehab counselor, requesting that I be removed from the program. They claimed that I had communicated to them that I could no longer participate in the program, something that was not remotely true (particularly as there were 4 days left for my cohort). I confronted them in an email which CC'd my counselor, informing them that their claim was not factual, and clarifying for my counselor what was actually said. I then received another message from Gregorio, separate from the string in which my counselor was CC'd, which claimed I was in violation of Sabio's attendance policy, and that they had grounds for dismissal. I reviewed the policy, found that I was not in fact in violation of it, and responded to Gregorio asking that he explain what exactly qualified me for dismissal. I asked that he ensure any further communications include my counselor, to ensure that no further accusations were made without proper representation being present to witness. I never received a reply, and the next day, with 2 days of training left, my access to Sabio's training site, as well as my cohort's slack channel and all other lines of communication, were cut off. I emailed Gregorio asking that he clarify whether I'd been dropped from the program or not, and again did not receive a reply.
Tomorrow is my graduation from Sabio. I participated for the entirety of the program until my access was blocked. I contributed to the "Client Project", and my work can be seen on the site still. They'd already sent a copy of my Certificate of Completion to my counselor, and yet, I've been dropped from the program. This, without any explanation or further communication from any person at the school.
I truly hope that my experience here has not been anyone else's, and that if Sabio is successful, it's because they've recognized their flaws and corrected their course. I do not recommend this school to anyone, though at one point I even helped them promote the school on my personal social media. Sabio was, by far, the worst decision I've made in my academic and professional career to this point. Do not make the same mistake I did.

Response From: Liliana Aide Monge of SabioTitle: Co-Founder & CEOWednesday, Sep 02 2020Our program is intensive, which is why we call it a coding bootcamp. We offer Senior Instructors from Monday - Friday all day from 9am - 6pm, and often on Saturdays, our Co-Founder and CTO, Gregorio will also help students.
We understand that during COVID alot of students are eager to train with us in-person, on-campus like we have done for many years; however, the health emergency does not allow for that.
These are all very difficult times for everyone, and everyone at Sabio is still working full time schedules, while juggling the pandemic, kids at home, and loved-ones that may be unwell.
We provide all of our students with 100% support and assistance, no other program in the nation offers the type of contact hours with a Senior Instructor as we do, and we build amazing products that help you launch our career in tech. C88 graduated less than 2 weeks ago, and already 5 people have found meaningful employment, and many more will continue to do so.
We understand the program is stressful, and we are a technical training program that is condensed. You already explained that you were with us much longer than the typical student. And we can accommodate various schedules; however, we cannot tolerate that our faculty and team members be spoken to with flagrant redistrict.
We stand by all of our training materials, as we are a Candidate for Accreditation via the Council for Occupational Education, and BPPE re-approved our 5 year license in Feb 2020. We also go through audits via the VA. We know that our program is top-notch, albeit intensive.
We wish you nothing but the best, and know you have learned a lot during the many months you were with Sabio, and wish you luck in your career journey.
Sincerely, Liliana Aide Monge
- Full Stack - ASP.NET with React- 3/11/2020Caitlin Stobie • Software Engineer • Graduate • Course: Downtown LA ASP.Net // C# Full Stack With React • Campus: Los Angeles • Verified via LinkedInI graduated two weeks ago and already have a job as a full stack software engineer for double the income i was making before! The staff is so helpful and accommodating and make the whole experience worthwhile. I learned so much, made some lifelong friends, and had fun all the while. I also received the women in tech scholarship and could not be more grateful to Sabio for all of their help getting me ready for my new career journey.
- Sabio Works- 3/7/2020Brian • Web Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development at Antioch University • Campus: Los Angeles • Verified via LinkedInI came back to the United States after 4 years abroad with no job prospects, no idea what I was going to do, and zero programming experience whatsoever. I found my way to Sabio and just over 6 months later I had 4 job offers and literally went from 0 to 60K. But make no mistake, learning full stack web development from nothing is not easy. It takes a tremendous amount of time, hard work, dedication, and determination. Show Sabio all of the above, and the entire Sabio community will support you for your entire web development career. Sabio delivered exactly what it promised. Sabio works.
- Best Experience Ever!- 3/7/2020Umiko Hewett • Full stack Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Weekday - REMOTE • Campus: Online • Verified via LinkedInThis is not just another online class. Sabio was there 100% of the way to help you on this coding journey. The instructors are knowledgeable, ready to help and is always full of great advice. Even though I was remote I was still able to get valuable instruction and help when I needed it. Everyone at Sabio is comitted to your learning experience and success and that is a wonderful feeling knowing that they care and want you succeed. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to be a part of this program and I have a coding family for life! Thank you Sabio!
- Best decision I could have made!- 12/27/2019Joseph Valdez • .Net Developer/ QA Engineer • Graduate • Campus: Los Angeles • Verified via LinkedIn
Sabio is the best investment, in time and money, you could possibly make for yourself! The course is very rigorous but as long as you give it your best effort you will be alright. Gregorio and Liliana run a great program and all the instructors are top notch. There isn't any hand holding throughout the cohort. The instructors are not there to give you the answers to all of the problems that you run into but they are there to guide you in your journey to figure them out for yourself. This is where I feel that Sabio is the greatest at. Anyone can learn to code but the difficulty lies in learning how to understand problems and solving them in the most efficient way possible.
After graduating from the cohort and many interviews and rejections you do start to wonder if you have the skills you need to get that dream developer job. Well do not worry because you undoubtedly do. The support you get from everyone at Sabio is amazing. Even after graduating I was able to get on zoom calls with my instructor, Danny, and he helped me with a problem I was running into. Now just a month after graduating I have landed a job in career field I would not have thought possible just a few months prior. So do yourself a favor and give Sabio a chance, you won't regret it.
- Best prework!- 11/1/2019Hipolito Nunez • Fullstack Developer • Course: Full Stack Node.js with React • Campus: Los Angeles • Verified via GitHub
I had the opportunity of attending two coding boot camps before I was offered a coding job and would like to compare and contrast two coding academies, Sabio and Hack Reactor. Sabio, As per https://www.coursereport.com/schools/sabio is a 5 stars coding academy and Hack Reactor a 4.5.
Sabio is an outstanding place to learn for several reasons, Sabio is small (they do have campuses in LA and Irvine) so you get a one on one approach directly from the founder or from one of the instructors. During the precourse, they provide 3 hours of one on one assitance with an experienced instructor and since the school is small some days you have an instructor for 3 hours providing exclusive assistance with your prework and you also get a promptly response in one of their slack channels.
Their prework is pretty awesome, you solve individual problems that connect to an API (Appliacation Programming Interface) that will let you know immediately when you have solved each specific task. The entire prework was developed and updated by the instructors evidence of their coding knowledge. The prework is organized in components and each components has a video explaining the concept and each component.
Hack Reactor was purchased by galvanize and is a pretty fancy rich school with lots advertizements so their classes are so big that you get the feeling that you are just a number. Their prework is a bit ambigious, you submit it and never hear from the instructors, they don’t have xoom conferences until you pass the prework, so you are really on your own during prework. Their slack channels do provide assistance but most of it come from other students.
Overall, I recommend a small school that can give you attention and is not a beurocratic juggernut.
- Highly Recommended- 3/28/2019Derek • Software Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack .Net Back-End with React Front End • Campus: Los Angeles • Verified via LinkedIn
Owners/Instructors: Gregorio and Liliana are the hardest working business owners I know. While they expect developers to be coding 70+ hours/week, I can almost guarantee you Gregorio and Liliana are working even harder researching what tech stacks are in highest demand to best prepare Sabio students for landing a job, partnering with non-profits and entrepreneurs for real projects for their students to work on, and being in contact with current students and fellows, helping in every way they can to support them in the job hunting process. The instructors are the best in the industry, providing the right amount of instruction and mentorship to help you become a good developer.
Format/Classes: PreWork gets you ready for cohort, it's face-paced and challenging, but like anything else, if you are willing to do the work and follow the instructor's coaching, you'll get through it with no problem. Cohort simulates an actual professional development environment with student developers working on real-life projects for entrepreneurs and non-profits. The website our cohort created is published and the user base is growing. This real project and my contributions gave me all I needed to sell my skills and experience during the interview process and helped me land a job earning $75,000 shortly after graduating from Sabio (note: Getting a job soon after graduating is in no way a guarantee, as Gregorio and Liliana have no control over how you spend your time. If you're putting in 5 applications a week, don't expect a job offer right away. Keep in mind you're going against every other job seeker in the region for these jobs, so play the numbers. I averaged 50 applications/day every single day until I had an offer. It takes discipline--that's something you have to find in yourself--and confidence--which you should also find in yourself when reflecting on how much you've learned over such a short period of time and the contributions you made to your project.).
What separates Sabio from other bootcamps? First, I don't see Sabio as another bootcamp, because bootcamps typically don't prepare developers as well as Sabio. In my first role coming out of Sabio, the word "bootcamp" never came up during the interview process or even when I started until my team started to get to know me and wanted to hear where I learned to code. The guy who filled my position before me had more than 5 years experience as a developer, and the fixes/features I had to finish that he started were full of indications that he frequently ignored industry standards (like triple-nested loops in SQL), and the senior developers on my team constantly complement the simplicity and cleanliness of my code and applaud my coding standards... all practices that Sabio taught me and prepared me for. When employers ask me about my lack of experience (less than 2 years) when applying for a job asking for 3-5 years experience, I confidently tell them, "I understand other developers may have more years experience than I do, but I'm confident that if you put me up against them, you'd see that my skills and practices are competitive with theirs." This confidence comes from the best industry practices that Sabio grills into us.
Impact/Result: Before Sabio, I was stuck in an entry-level purgatory, never making more than $50,000/year without working a ton of overtime. I found Sabio while looking for a coding bootcamp that accepted the GI Bill, did my research and found Sabio to have the highest credibility, which was more important to me than any promised results that a lot of bootcamps offer. Three weeks after graduating from Sabio, I had an offer for my first developer role, a Junior Software Developer making $75,000/year with full benefits. That's 50% more than my previous highest salary. Six months later, and I'm getting interviewed for jobs in the $85,000 to $95,000 range, and some even in the six-figure range. Less than 1 year from graduating...
Thank you, Sabio.

It can be a rather difficult choice to spend a significant amount of money and time in a coding bootcamp program. Let me tell you that it is a choice that I am happy made. I had my doubts about going to a trade school but there are skills here that you simply will not be taught in a university.
Then the bootcamp begins.
It is very difficult for thos that have litte experience in web development to adjust to the technologies that they will learn. Some will laugh, some will cry and some will curse at their computer. When you have questions you will put yourself on the queue. You HAVE to try to solve your own problems but if you are simply stuck, that is when the instructor will answer your questions. The instructors are reluctant to help if you are asking very basic questions that can be answered with a simple stack overflow search.
The instructors are extremely knowledgeable, especially Gregorio. They may not answer your questions all the time but they do know what they are talking about.
One of the things I enjoyed about this school the most was the family atmosphere. Liliana and Gregorio (owners) truly have your best interest in mind. That is one thing that I immedately felt when I visited Sabio and met instructors and owners. You can ask them for advice on many things related to tech, jobs and more. The slack community that you will be a part of is full of positive people, new job leads and tech questions/answers.
I am a few weeks out of Sabio and I have received an offer from a lead that I got in the Slack channel that an alumni posted. Just put your head down, do the work and keep moving forward no matter how hard things get.
If you're on the fence about joining Sabio, you will not regret it. TRUST ME. You will learn the tech that you need to be a pro in this field and you will advance much faster than if you tried learning this stuff on your own.
- Excellent program!- 3/28/2019Miles • Software Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack .Net Back-End with React Front End • Campus: Los Angeles • Verified via GitHub
If you’re looking for a career change or want to get to grips with coding Sabio is a fantastic investment. I had a wonderful experience at Sabio in Culver City, where I met some brilliant people and learnt copious amounts of new skills.
During pre work you learn the fundamentals of web development for four weeks and are required to take an assessment at the end to see if you are prepared for labs. In labs you dive further into the material that you have learnt and are exposed to more advanced concepts and challenging tasks.
For the cohort itself, there are two options, .NET and node. I decided to go with the .NET route as it gave me the opportunity to learn another programming language with expert instruction, I thought that if could get through the bootcamp I would be able to teach myself Node afterwards when I come out. The program sets you up extremely well for the job market, it teaches you the fundamentals and the latest technologies that you will need to succeed as a software developer. We had fantastic instructors for our project that made the entire learning process very enjoyable and manageable. We would do daily scrum meetings and the classroom environment was always clean and accommodating. The bootcamp is demanding but if you are motivated, enjoy learning and want to get into the tech industry then this is a wonderful opportunity for you. There is also financial help that you can get, I managed to get a scholarship for the program which helped me immensely. This time last year I was considering checking out the bootcamp, after learning so many new skills, making new friends, working with some brilliant minds and with numerous offers for interesting work over $65 000 a year I am extremely pleased that I did.
Thank you to Gregorio, Liliana and all of my wonderful instructors that made this possible for me!
- Consistency Is Key- 3/26/2019Devonte gabriel • IT Software Engineer • Graduate • Campus: Los Angeles • Verified via LinkedIn
Let me start off with a thank you to Gregorio and Liliana, because of these two I was able to attain the skills necessary to change my life for the better and support my family effortlessly. I started the course through Antioch University because I'm a military veteran my GI Bill paid for the boot camp. the class environment was normal you sit in for a lecture with your computer open and code along with the instructor while you learn the basics. every day in class builds on what you learned the day before so it is best to always be coding so that you can build on what you know or do more research into it. after about three months of that, we took an exit test (code challenge) over the material learned. the next phase was the cohort which is structured to imitate a work environment. at the time I was there we were expected to code for at least 70 hours a week and yes that sounds like a lot but it is worth it at the end. we had a scrum meeting in the morning when we came in and one in the middle of the day for progress. the instructors are very helpful and they are all approachable if you have questions. what I appreciated the most was that the instructors never gave the answers when you ask them for help instead they tell you how to find the answers so the next time you are stuck you know what to do. that's not to say they don't help because they will if they point you in the right direction and after 20-30 minutes you're still stuck they will begin to drop more hints but the goal is for you to learn how to work through your code and learn to debug code properly. Sabio is like a family to me the people I met through the camp and the alumni are super helpful they pass job leads to you and they will refer you to there recruiters if their job is hiring. we all keep in touch through slack and as alumni, we are always welcome to come back if we want to be in an environment that promotes coding. It is easily a no brainer if you have the Time and want to change careers or get deeper into the developer scene Join the Sabio family
