- You CAN do this!- 12/5/2016Jazmine • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development at Antioch University • Campus: Los Angeles
I’ve been eagerly waiting for the day to write my Sabio Success Story!
I was just like you, scouring Course Report and carefully weighing my options. Because I was living in San Jose, Sabio had stiff competition against bootcamps in the Bay Area. I had a list of top 5 schools and after serious consideration for each one, Sabio turned out to be THE BEST all-around coding bootcamp.
I had absolutely no technical background prior to attending Sabio. I have a BA in music and was working for a symphony in the Bay Area. Understandably, I was met with skepticism from people who saw me as a musician. But I thought, “Why not?”
It was March 2016 when I first signed up for Codecademy and even heard of HTML. Liliana checked in with me several times before I moved down to LA and made sure I had a head start before PreWork.
I started PreWork in July and performed well enough to move on to the 12 week intensive in August. 2 weeks after finishing the program, I had a job offer! Thanks to Gregorio’s guidance, I increased that offer by 6k and now I’m earning 20k more than the job I left 5 months ago!
The best advice I can give when deciding on a bootcamp is to DO YOUR RESEARCH! Know what you’re looking for and what your values are. My top priorities were the quality of the education and the support. I couldn’t find any other bootcamp that had reviews as consistent and positive as Sabio’s. Their online presence was hard to ignore. And now that I’ve gone through it, I too can echo that Sabio delivers THE best education and support you can ask for.
Sabio has been there for me in more ways than just learning how to code. Whenever I felt incapable or inadequate, I could easily ask Gregorio or Mike for a chat about how I'm feeling. Being a woman I was concerned about inclusiveness. I’ve read horror stories of women at bootcamps being subjected to less than ideal learning environments. Take comfort in that Sabio keeps a high standard of respect in the classrooms. Whether you’re a woman, POC or LGBT, you’re more than welcome here.
I’m so grateful for Gregorio, Liliana, Mike and my Cohort for believing in me more than I believed in myself. And making sure I didn't fall behind or get sucked into my own self-crippling doubt. Like I’ve said and so many others, Sabio is there for you 100%. You’ve come to the right place.
- Get out what you put in- 12/3/2016Yushi • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Weekday Training (12 weeks) • Campus: Los Angeles
Sabio has a great program that will teach you core principles and give you a solid foundation for coding. I felt it was true that the more I put my effort into the program, the more I got out in return.
The instructors were always invested and did their best to answer any questions or concerns I had. It made me feel comfortable about learning new concepts which helped me keep motivated throughout the entirety of the program. I appreciated the learn by doing approach, with my instructor giving helpful advice and pointers to challenge my thinking.
One of the aspects of Sabio that I truly appreciate is the sense of community and the support for students, even after graduation. My instructor was happy to help me and give advice on my job. It really is reassuring knowing that you get more out of this program than just the skill of programming.
Thanks to them, I've been able to keep up at my new job, despite having to work on technologies that I was not familiar with. It shows that you come out of the program with a solid foundation, and support when you need them.
- You have chosen.... WISELY- 12/3/2016Jenya • Full Stack Web Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Weekday Training (12 weeks) • Campus: Los Angeles
Let me start by saying that I was, am, and probably always will be a skeptic.
What this means is that, when I was stuck in a job I detested 6 months ago and considering escape routes, I didn't actually, truly believe this would work. I wanted a career where I would be challenged and could learn new things constantly. Tech seemed like the logical choice, and a boot camp seemed like the simplest, fastest way to get there, but it seemed wildly unbelievable to me that a 12-week program would get me industry-ready.
I picked Sabio because their statistics were fantastic (and unpadded!) and because I would get to work on a real project with a real client rather than a variety of small, inconsequential assignments. The skeptic in me didn't allow me to get excited about everything else they promised - continued support, a truly caring community, incredible instructors... So I focused on the concrete, quantifiable promises instead. I committed to this because I was desperate to get out of where I was, but all the while I doubted that this would seriously work.
Prework started - 1 month of 15 hours/week instruction to prepare us for the real deal. We learned the foundations of front-end and middle-tier development, enough that we would not be useless when the actual 12-week program started. The instruction was more than good enough to penetrate through my never-did-this-sort-of-thing-before barrier. I got great guidance and learned a ton, but throughout the prework process I was still skeptical. Sure, things were going great, but there was no way that I would really be able to get a career at the end of all this...
And then the 12-week program slammed me in the face so hard that I didn't have the time or energy to be skeptical anymore. Sabio expects 70 hours a week from its fellows, with you absorbing and applying insane amounts of material every hour of that. The challenge exceeded anything I had ever done before. I was tested physically, mentally, and most of all emotionally, and my skepticism was melted down into a puddle of insecurity that I found myself splashing around in all too often. I wasn't doubtful anymore - I was freaking POSITIVE that I couldn't do this.
But I was also surrounded by 5 others who were going through the exact same thing. My cohort was full of extraordinary people from all sorts of backgrounds. It was a pleasure and a privelege to do this program alongside them, and I'm eternally grateful for their putting up with my insecurities and helping me when I was lost or confused. Furthermore. my instructors Mike and Gregorio were some of the most intelligent, patient, and caring people I've ever worked with.
In fact, the entirety of the Sabio community is incredible. Those promises that I had discounted in my initial decision due to my skepticism were more than fulfilled, and they turned out to be the core reason I would vehemently recommend Sabio to anyone even vaguely considering it. You will be surrounded by other people going through the program, awesome instructors, graduates, and founders, all of whom actually, seriously care about your success and will do their damndest to make sure you do well.
Ultimately, I made it through - all of us did. I learned more in 12 weeks than I thought possible to learn in a year. I scored a fantastic job with a company I fell completely in love with, and at a great salary to boot.
I'm still a skeptic, mind you - there's a small part of me that still wonders if one of these days I won't wake up and realize it was all a really cool dream. But until that happens, I am happy as hell with my decision.
- Best. Decision. Ever- 11/18/2016Brenden • Front End Web Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development at Antioch University • Campus: Los Angeles
Before I decided to enroll in Sabio’s 12 week program, I had already selected another bootcamp on the other side of the country that I had every intention of attending; then I found Sabio. Stumbling upon Sabio’s website was completely accidental, but after perusing the website, I decided that attending one of the weekly info sessions couldn’t hurt. I attended an info session and spoke to Gregorio about Sabio’s program, and the thing that stuck out to me the most was that each class is given the opportunity to work and collaborate on a real app for an actual client. While most bootcamps I had researched were touting a curriculum that would result in a portfolio full of smaller exercises, Sabio grads were leaving the program with real work experience and a working app to show to potential employers.
And so, on a whim and a gut feeling, I decided to attend Sabio as part of Cohort 21, and 12 weeks later I became a fully employed front end web developer earning significantly more than I had in my previous career.
The program is tough and the hours are long, but with the help of the ever patient Sabio instructors who are ready and waiting to help with any and all questions that arise during the program (of which there will be plenty), I found myself rapidly acquiring the skills necessary to becoming a full fledged developer. Ultimately, Sabio is focused on helping you become a fully employed developer, and towards the end of the program we began focusing on finding jobs and preparing for the inevitable technical interviews. Because Sabio’s instructors are professional developers with many years of experience, their insight and knowledge proved invaluable during the job hunting process, and after receiving a job offer less than a week after the 12 week program ended, I can say beyond a shadow of a doubt that that wouldn’t have been possible without the help of Sabio’s instructors.
Quite possibly more important than Sabio’s curriculum, and more significant than the opportunity to build a professional app, is the Sabio community. When you enroll at Sabio, you don’t just sign up for a 12 week program, you sign up to become part of an invaluable community of developers; a resource that will continuously prove it’s worth long after the 12 week intensive program ends. If I have questions about a problem I’m trying to solve at work, I know I can look to the Sabio community for insight, feedback, and support for even the most elementary or mundane issues.
Discovering Sabio was a perfectly happy accident that ultimately lead to an overall better career and lifestyle for me. If you’re considering going to Sabio, or still weighing your options, do yourself a favor and go to Sabio (or at least an info session); you will not be disappointed.
- Definitely worth it!- 11/13/2016Jimmy • Software Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Weekday Training (12 Weeks) • Campus: Orange County
I went to the info sessions of a few different bootcamps but it was an easy choice to pick Sabio. The biggest reason for me was that at Sabio, you work on a real product for an actual client. I think it is much more impressive on your resume compared to having a calculator/tictactoe project or whatever.
The program is great. You learn full-stack development, and the languages you learn are highly sought after. I had Aaron and Varr for instructors, and they are awesome. There’s a lot of stuff to learn and you will definitely have lots of questions. They’ll patiently answer your questions for however long it takes for you to understand. The cohort size is small so there is lots of one on one time.
It doesn’t end with you just graduating, or after you find your first job. The Sabio community of instructors and fellows is there for you if you have questions about code, work, or anything. Sabio continues to provide workshop events to help with your professional development.
I was at a job that paid OK, but was not something I really enjoyed. I was definitely apprehensive to walk away from a steady paycheck to jump into this program in an entirely different field. From zero experience in programming, I was hired 3 weeks after graduating. I’m enjoying the code, and at a higher salary to boot.
- You get what you put in.- 11/13/2016Nancy • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Weekday Training (12 Weeks) • Campus: Orange County
My story is a little different from most who went through the program. I was already an established teacher in a great school district, with good pay and benefits. After 10 years in education though, I wasn't as excited to come to work each day like I used to and if I couldn't put my heart into what I was doing anymore, I wanted a career change. After looking at many different options (masters, doctorate, other certificate programs all related to education), I knew I didn't want to spend 2+ years just to try out a career that I may or may not enjoy. Fortunately for me, I was able to connect with a software developer who worked at my school. Upon finding out that he was a music major that transitioned into programming through a bootcamp on the east coast, I started looking into bootcamps offered in SoCal.
I researched many different bootcamps, but in the end chose Sabio because of the extended prep period (Phase 1). While most other programs offered a 2 week intro period, Sabio offered 4-6 weeks of part-time prep time with an instructor to make sure you are actually interested in coding, you get along well with the instructors, and you really are ready to pull the plug on your last career. There is a coding test at the end of Phase 1 to make sure you have the fundamentals and dedication necessary to be successful in Phase 2, their full-time 12 week program where you are paired up with a real startup company to build their prototype.
I absolutely loved my two instructors at Sabio, Varr in Phase 1 and Aaron in Phase 2. Both are extremely knowledgeable, patient, and just kind, well-rounded people that are pleasant to be around. I was the only female in the cohort but that is pretty typical in a male-dominated industry. My cohort and instructors were great, and fostered a collaborative learning environment. Don't be afraid to get on the queue for the one-on-one time with the instructors, even if it's just for them to clarify what you need to do for the 2nd or 3rd time until you can wrap your head around the task at hand. They are there for support. That being said, you will definitely have to put in 70+ hours a week. As Aaron said many times throughout the 12 weeks, "If it was easy, everyone would do it." The more work you put in, the more knowledge and practice you'll get out that would better prepare you when you are ready to interview for jobs.
My cohort of 8 people all got hired for full-time positions within a month of graduating from Sabio! I chose Sabio because of their longer prep period for true beginners, hands-on experience on a real life project, interview prep, and supportive instructors who do whatever they can to help you as long as you pull your weight and put in your hours. I've already recommended Sabio to my brothers, who are interested in career changes. I recommend going to Sabio's info sessions to see for yourself what the program is all about.
- Sabio is family- 11/12/2016Dhara Patel • Web Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Weekday Training (12 weeks) • Campus: Los Angeles
Why Sabio --
Not too long ago, I decided I wanted to learn to code and become a part of the fast growing tech industry. I was working as an accountant at that time and to put it lightly, I despised it. Every morning I would wake up dreading going to work. I was always intrigued by programmers and even did some tutorials on my own.
Though I had heard of many coding bootcamps, I was hesitant to go through one because I was unsure whether they would provide the skills necessary, in what seemed like a short 12 weeks to land a job as a web developer. Rather than shutting the idea down completely, I did A LOT of research and attended numerous info sessions. I was skeptical up until I attended Sabio’s info session. During this info session, I was impressed by how confident the instructors were about teaching anyone to code, if you were willing put in the time and effort. Having very little knowledge on the subject, this really stuck out to me. They spoke about the amount of students that get hired as web developers once they leave the program, which is just about everyone who is looking to find a job in this field. They told us that Sabio provided professional development opportunities even after the bootcamp was over, so you as a web developer could continue to grow and learn. Though these were great factors already, it was the moment they mentioned that they bring in real clients who have an application that needs to be built. This is what their students work on during the 12 weeks of the bootcamp. I am a kinesthetic learner by all means, so when I heard this during the info session I had made my decision.
During Sabio --
During this 12 week period, you are focused on learning the full spectrum of web development, from front end to back end. What I appreciated most during this process was that there was also a focus on developing your problem solving skills, to get you to think like a developer, which is essential in this line of work. This program like most great things, is difficult and grueling, however you are given the tools and support system (Sabio and your cohort) to help you conquer these 12 weeks. If you submerge yourself into this new world fully, you will come out a winner!
After Sabio --
Long after you have completed the bootcamp, Sabio will be there for you. It’s amazing to me just how much they invest in each of their students, even if you’re no longer going through the actual bootcamp. Whether it’s for a big career decision you are facing, or a small debugging issue that you just can’t seem to crack. They also give you a community filled with alumni who have gone down the same path as you, who you can connect with and learn from or perhaps even build something with. Once you’ve chosen Sabio, they are your family. As for me, I am currently employed and doing something that I finally love, all thanks to Sabio. If it weren’t for them, I wouldn’t be where I am today and I am so grateful to have made this decision!
- stay on the grind- 11/2/2016Tyson • Course: Full Stack Weekday Training (12 Weeks) • Campus: Orange County
Real clients with real app ideas + awesome instructors + cool work environment + free coffee + free beer.
Yes, it is exhaustive, I was putting in 70hrs+ each week, but I was fortunate to have a supportive and really really funny cohort to pull me through while keeping me entertained. Shout out to my main instructor Aaron for always believing in me even though I was having a hard time believing in myself if I can do this coding thing. Coming from a science background was a complete 180 turn. Fortunately, Aaron was there every step of the way to guide me in the right direction without actually giving me all of the answers. He understands that everyone goes at their own pace and caters to us in different ways that challenge us and help us get better rapidly. The patience on this man has no boundaries. I asked him the same question multiple times and he just has a way to tell you to get your shit together without making you feel like shit. You will get shitty days where you will question what the heck you are even doing, but you just have to believe in the program and push on.
I found a job in less than a month after bootcamp and was given the salary that I asked for. Thank you Sabio!
- embrace the challenge- 10/27/2016Nico • Junior developer • Graduate • Campus: Los Angeles
What I appreciated about Sabio was the no nonsense environment. Don't waste our time and we won't waste yours and vise versa. Sabio teaches skills and sometimes more importantly concepts that are crucial to the web development world. These ideas serve as foundations for you to learn new skills with ease. Over all I would say the course is difficult. It is a bootcamp and it is demanding. The reward really pays off when possible employers test your skills and are impressed with your knowledge and comprehension of web development. The only advice I would give future students is to fully prepare for and intense 12 weeks. Other than that, It is definately a course worth taking if you want to change your life.
- The Investment of a lifetime- 10/27/2016Don Weis • Web developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Weekday Training (12 Weeks) • Campus: Orange County
Plain and simple, this program is worth every penny spent towards getting the skill necessary to enter the workforce head on.
I was introduced to Sabio by a friend of mine that had been looking for bootcamps after I was laid off from my job of 6 years making 15/hr.
I went to the orange county meet up with another friend in a similar situation and we sold on sabio by the amazing orange county instructor Aaron. He supplied us with every detail we needed to know before taking the plunge into the intensive program.
after going through pre work at the culver city location and passing the assessments. we transition to Newport for our cohort and instantly meshed with the team that had already been working together down south.
the program gave everyone the tools they needed to pick up the skill set very effectively. Aarons one on one time was guided specifically to each person's needs and helped everyone crush their goals one after the other.
With the amazing teamwork that was built on top of Aaron's foundation of knowledge, there was no stopping us, and we delivered an amazing MVP to our client after an immersive 3 months.The time flew by and we were well prepared to enter the job market.
While I Felt confident in my skill, I was a little nervous about my opportunities being someone with ZERO programing experience before Sabion, and no college degree to fall back on, but within 1 month. Everyone including myself were hired out of our cohort because we stuck the the plan that Sabio puts in place to effectively get a job.
I was able to find a job that payed me much more than my last job, with a atmosphere and location right where I wanted with only 6 months of pedal to the metal work.
TL;DR - Sabio is 100% worth it and you would only be hurting yourself going somewhere else.

- Best choice of my life- 10/26/2016Joe • Backend Developer • Graduate • Campus: Orange County
i had a good career in business as an account executive, but chose to change to programming and I am so thankful to have found Sabio. I took the class in OC with Aaron, and let me tell you... this guy was an amazing instructor. He really pushed me to the limits and never was irritated with me. Beyond that, we had amazing cohort, and everyone was helpful and got along great. It was one of the best experiences of my life. If you study and do what Sabio tells you, and you try your best, YOU WILL GET A JOB. Sabio also truly cares about you and wants you to succeed. It's the best Bootcamp ever. I was able to learn a brand new stack for a take home project for a job I wanted, I crushed the project and now I'm hired making 85k, straight out of the Bootcamp, no prior experience, no computer science degree.
Best decision of my life. Sabio really is amazing.
- It's not just a coding bootcamp.- 10/25/2016Ai • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Weekday Training (12 weeks) • Campus: Los Angeles
I did a lot of research before I chose to enroll Sabio and I don't regret my decision. My experience at Sabio was simply amazing. I not only learn how to code, but also build a great relationship with amazing people. I loved the culture and this is another thing that differenciates Sabio from the other coding bootcamps. Gregorio and Liliana are very considerate and hard-working, they are always there to support with any needs and they try their best to make the program even better. The instructor was very knowledgeable, patient and encourging, and he was always there to provide hands-on support. I couldn't ask for more.
The curriculum is well structured. You start from the pre-work where you learn the basics of programming language and this helps you a lot when you get into intensive 12 weeks program. Another great thing about Sabio is that you get to work on the project for a real company. They apply industry standard practices so you get the feel of working as a developer in the real world.
The intensive program was definitely challenging, it required 70 hours of coding a week, and there were tons of information to absorb in such a short period of time. But it really pays off in the end. I've graduated 3 weeks ago and am already working as a full-time web developer. I am so happy with the outcome and excited about building my new career!
