    The full stack program will equip you to utilize a myriad of software development tools used by industry professionals to develop, debug and design dynamic web applications; conducting both front-end and back-end development, application program interfaces (API’s), back-end data stores such as relational database management systems (RDMS) and team development strategies. The course will prepare you to perform the duties of a typical entry-level Full Stack Web Developer. A Full Stack Web Developer is a programmer with a technical skill set that allows them to perform in client side, server side/middle tier, and backend-database development environments. Their main tasks are to develop, design and debug software that runs in a cross-browser environment served out of a web server backed by a database server for data persistence. The course will allow you to be substantially knowledgeable in the Software Development Life Cycle (SDLC) from concept to finished product and the ability to specialize, if they choose, in anything from front-end to back-end development technologies. You will obtain the knowledge and skills to develop relational databases and work with data that is not stored in a relational manner. They will interact with their own API’s and third party API’s. They will also be exposed to many User Interface and User Experience (UI and UX) () design concerns while building an understanding of how to gather customer and client requirements. They will be fluent in performing quality assurance testing and fundamental security concerns. Specifically, the course will produce a programmer/developer that can work with many of the most popular design patterns, third party APIs, libraries and technologies including but not limited to: HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Bootstrap, MVVM, MVC, AngularJS, jQuery, Ajax, Inversion of Control, Dependency Injection, Principles of Object Oriented Design, Data Structures, Data Access, Database Design and Architecture, GIS, SMS, SMTP and RESTFul Api Design. Sabio focuses on a single, group based project that exposes you to the full Software Development Life Cycle as experienced in a team practicing Agile/Scrum project management and development principles.

    I honestly wouldn't be where I am today without the help, guidance, mentorship and leadership provided to me by Sabio. The daily instructions and random mini lectures provided to me by my instructor played such a key role in my success. Sabio's phililosophy isn't just to help you figure out how to do something, but to also understand the 'magic' that happens behind the scenes. That is why I was able to do so well during my phone screens and interview processes. Being able to articulate intelligibly things like JavaScript event loops, or what asynchronous / synchronous functions are, why use one over the other or what happens during the request/response life cycle like model binding or what data models are really helped validate me to my current employers that I'm not your typical junior developer. I guarantee that's one of the big reasons why I was hired. My transition to this career change was a very progressive one (although that wasn't a huge contribution towards my success, I worked alongside a cohort mate of mine who used to be in paralegal and within a matter of weeks after graduating from Sabio was able to find a great Frontend position working for a well known PC gaming company). I used to be in IT support - over 6 years, and I felt that I had peaked professionally. Suddenly what I used to love, just didn't give me the satisfaction and fulfillment it once did, so I knew I needed to change. I'm a U.S. military veteran and fortunately for me I was able to apply my veteran benefits towards Sabio because of their partnership with Antioch. Now, problem is I'm a person of routine, and taking risks is not something I am comfortable with. I needed so much reassurance before taking that big leap, which i ended finding through my extensive research and I'm so glad that I did. I increased my salary by over 30% and am now in an industry that I love, all thanks to my experience at Sabio. If you're like me, over the age of 30 and are seriously considering another career, particularly in the Web Application Development space, check out Sabio, ESPECIALLY if you're a veteran and still have a few months of benefits left. Don't just take it from me though, do your due diligence and research the other hundreds of bootcamps out there. Picj a fee top performing ones and check out their processes in person. Go to their info sessions, if possible sit in for a few hours during their normal instruction days and see what the class day to day is like. Speak with instructors and students alike, ask questions and see which environment resonates the most with you. Sabio, for many reasons ended up being my choice and I don't want to sound like a broken record with this page's ongoing theme but best decision of my life. You really do get out of it what you put into it and for me, i could NOT be more happier with the choice that i made.

    Here's my story, right after high school I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with my life. So I decided to become a server (since they make decent living off tips, sure why not?). After being a server for four years and complaining on why food took so long to come out of the kitchen, I went and became a chef for the next 6 years.

    So how and why did I decide to go into software development? Well, one day my computer got a virus. My roommate at the time luckily was really into technology and had a linux USB and told me to install it. After I installed it, my virus went away and my computer was working again. But now my laptop was a Linux machine. How TF do I use this thing? So I googled, and learned Unix commands and Linux CLI I started to feel like some hacker everytime I inputed 'sudo apt-get update'. My terminal just went crazy. But I never delved any deeper than just being exposed to the software. But I really enjoyed technology. (I never wrote any Bash shell scripts, but I'm sure I definitely can now, if I wanted to.)

    I then found out my friend did web development and asked him how he got a job doing such things? I asked him if I needed a degree. He looked at me like I was silly, "No, man! If you want to be a developer you just F'in do it!" He gave me some websites to study off of; which I did for the next two years and built some minor web applications. At this point I felt very comfortable with javascript, html, and css. I knew how to use a for loop, while loops, if else statements, ternary if else, arrays, js objects. I felt pretty good about myself. But was I ready to go out there and apply? I wouldn't be a full stack developer. No.. but as cocky as I was(still am, guilty as charged :P), I wasn't ready.

    So I looked into bootcamps. Found a few, but I felt something from Sabio. I felt like they actually care. Unlike other bootcamps, I feel like its a pump and dump. And that gut feeling I got about Sabio, really was true! You will learn everything you need to know to get out there and be confident. I know what I'm saying sounds cliche, it's not! LOL I'm super serious! I was super fortunate to have Jeremy Ramos as my instructor! I'm not sure what that guy doesn't know, but he definitely knows coding like a beast.

    By the time you graduate, you'll be passing data back and forth in your sleep. I definitely recommend Sabio! I recently graduated August 2017 and got an offer in October. I don't have a degree. I came from a completely different industry. And here I am. I'm going to start my second week of work tomorrow as I type this. 

    Ever wanted to be a software engineer? Stuck at a dead end job that you can barely support your family with? Or just want a more exciting job where everyday is a challenge of solving a new puzzle or two? Then I recommend you become a software/web/application (what have you) developer/engineer! And there's not a better start than starting with Sabio!

    If you're anything like I was, you have zero experience writing code and don't know where (and if it's even a good idea) to invest your time and money learning to do so. I had plateaued in my previous career and was looking for something that could offer me more, both in personal satisfaction and financially. Working in tech seemed like a far-fetched idea – I had always assumed you had to be some sort of genius to do so. The fact is, you don't. 

    Sabio starts you off two to three times a week in Pre-Work. This is where you learn Javascript and C# fundamentals. This is also the hardest part of the camp (though, it's not technically part of the camp) as you have little to no experience coding, and might struggle to build momentum and keep positive. I was surprised to learn that most people attending Pre-Work had already quit their jobs and committed to these sessions full-time. I couldn't afford that and was still working 40 hours a week. Having one foot in and one foot out, I wasn't allowing myself to fully digest the information being presented. Thankfully, when it came time to take the assessment test, I was able to demonstrate enough skill to enter the official camp. This is where you really start to shine.

    I mean, you have to. You're writing code all day every day. And that's the beauty of it. On top of that, and one of the reasons why I ultimately chose Sabio, is that you're working on a real-world product. Your cohort is paired with an entrepreneur and his/her pitch, and over the duration of the camp you're developing an MVP (minimum viable product). Your instructor will assign you tasks in various parts of the tech stack, and week after week your product will slowly begin to materialize. You'll be amazed at what you're able to accomplish in such a short amount of time. I believe this to be a huge testament to not only the curriculum Sabio has developed, but the instructors Sabio has chosen to mentor the students. I firmly believe that just because you can do something does not mean you can teach it. My instructor (shout-out to John Lee) was always really good at providing overall context, some direction on what to research, and then sending you off to work through it. 

    I'm sure this review echoes a lot of others in this forum. If you're even remotely considering a bootcamp as a means to a career change, I say do it –– it'll change your life. And if you're even remotely considering Sabio as your bootcamp of choice, the best thing you can do is go to one of the info sessions. There you'll meet Gregorio, one of the co-founders, who shoots straight from the hip and will answer any and all of your questions. It was after attending one of these sessions that I knew Sabio was for me. Gregorio is very passionate about breaking down barriers, building community, and getting you to the place you want to be if you're willing to put in the effort.

    ** if you have your life together this review is not for you but feel free to read it anyway**

    In the years before sabio I had hopped from path to path, never fully satisfied with where my life was headed. I had studied accounting, fashion, communications, and felt like i was starting to run out of options. I hated college, and when I got a job in a field I thought I would really enjoy, I hated working too. So I quit my job and was feeling completely and utterly stuck, until I saw a particularly terrible movie in December 2016, where a character in the movie said "Do your self a favor and learn how to code". So I thought, hey I'm not doing anything, why not? I took a code academy module on javascript and had so much fun solving problems with code. Long story short, I found Sabio and their glowing reviews online and about half way into one of their info sessions, I decided that I was going to go to code bootcamp. 5 months later I have a job as a web developer and I couldn't be happier. Was it easy? No. Would i recommend it to everyone? No. Would i do it all over again? Absolutely. I've made life long friends and i honestly truly wake up so happy every morning because I get to do something that i love everyday. I just want to say thanks so much to Sabio, to my Cohort, and to Jeremy, my instructor,  at the Newport Beach campus for everything they've done.

    Summary: Would wholeheartedly recommend. Best investment in myself I've ever made; well employed with a fantastic organization. 

    Most enter into a coding bootcamp looking for a second chance, plain and simple. Whether it be to increase earning potential or seek a more interesting field, the core theme that unites the Sabio community is the fact that everyone who comes through this bootcamp is striving for something better. And Sabio's commitment to this community is apparent from the way it operates: (1) hiring senior level developers with a propensity for mentorship to be their instructors, (2) professional development courses after graduation to continually expand skills while employed, (3) extensive job support via resume building and challenging mock technical interviews, and (4) encouraging of fellows to provide curriculum feedback in order to evolve with changing needs. 

    Holistically speaking, Sabio was the most complete bootcamp I found when stack ranked against the others I had vetted. From the foundation building prework to the live project experience gained from working on a real proof of concept for an entrepreneur, this bootcamp had already outshined most in the area. However, it was the community Sabio breeds along with their proactive job support after graduation that had won me over. The founders and instructors sincerely care about your success and that's evident in the way they communicate to and guide you. Ultimately though, it's up to you to leverage the knowledge and experience at your disposal to grow yourself; as the old adage goes, "you get out what you put in". Sabio has been a second chance to myself and many others and as such, should be treated as onework hard, talk code, and forge bonds. Now go make something happen!

    Short Version: Top-tier school, incredibly supportive community. I had full-time work within 6 weeks of graduation at $40/hour. Highly recommend!

    I spent a while visiting bootcamps before commiting to Sabio. It was one of only a handful of bootcamps that didn't seem a little fishy (e.g. hiring recent grads to teach). Throughout my experience with them, Sabio's program was exceptionally well thought out, explained, and executed. The staff and instructors were uniformly excellent, both in teaching and in creating a supporting community. The mistakes in the program were minor, and when they occured the Sabio staff recognized them and discussed with us how to improve the experience. 

    The part-time prework gives you a good chance to sound out the school and its vibe before making a large commitment, and if you're like me and don't have prior coding experience, the prework gives you an idea of whether you like doing it. The coursework itself is very rigorous (I did the .NET course). It's a full commitment during the 3-month cohort period, so I'd only do this if you're able to put most everything aside for 3 months. I was well prepared by the work itself though. When I got to my first contract gig after Sabio, at an investment bank downtown, they decided I knew what I was doing better than the project lead, so they fired him and put me in his place. Along with two other Sabio grads we were able to get the project back on its feet and approved by management to continue.

    Sabio does a very good job of transitioning you at the end of the course into job hunting mode. They give you a lot of confidence that it's doable and they actively follow up with you during the job hunt to help you improve. It's during the job hunt that the strength of the community really shines through. There are a ton of people there willing to help and the community of graduates is large enough that you can get a good number of leads through it (that's how I got my first job). I had full-time contract work within 6 weeks at $40/hour and was offered employment after another six weeks at $80K. Even once I was working the staff kept communicating to see how things were going and help when I got stuck.

    Summary: I would recommend Sabio in a heartbeat to anyone who can make the 3 month commitment. Really, you just don't find places like this very often.

    It's now been three years since graduating from Sabio, and through the frequent professional development courses, they have been a tremendous help in advancing my career. From fireside chats with the top in the industry (Github, Facebook, and Snapchat just to name a few)  to introducing new languages and methods to improve my skills has been a tremendous help. I'm already enthused for what they do with just becoming a developer, but with introducing use cases for implementing Docker and useful ES2015 tips they continue to show that they value my success long after graduating.

    My experience at Sabio was extremely fruitful in more ways than one.I fortified my technical skill-set that I have long sought to enhance, created life-long friendships, and joined a family of alumni that have already been very supportive.

    I had the pleasure of having Brijesh as our Product Lead - he is an All-Star. He has an unwavering commitment that I personally experienced working with him on our project. He was readily available, always pushed us, and definitely put in the hours as we got closer to the finish line. Without a doubt, there will be moments (maybe many) of "What am I doing?", but keeping one foot in front of the other, leveraging your resources, and ultimately plugging in the hours will get you through.

    I hope many others can benefit from Sabio as I did!

    Sabio provided me clear instructions and guidance when learning to code. Starting I hadn't written a single line of code before (outside of their prerequisite courses). With Sabio I learned how to develop the fundamentals of making an application. From HTML basic front end technology to advanced algorithims in real world applications. My experience with Sabino led me to working for an incredible mortgage tool company with strong knowledge and career experience on how to create incredibly dynamic applications. Sabio ensured before I entered the work environment I was proficient in many subjects including development to interview prep and resume writing. 

    What I took away from Sabio(tech): 
    Experience working as a full stack developer with the city of Los Angeles. 
    .NET / C# server side programming as well as request response methods. 
    Javascript front end programming 
    HTML and Bootstrap design and implementation. 
    SQL server programming and database storage.
    jQuery front end manipulation.

    What I do in my career as a software engineer now:
     .NET / C# server side programming as well as request response methods. 
    Javascript front end programming 
    HTML and Bootstrap design and implementation. 
    SQL server programming and database storage.
    jQuery front end manipulation.

    It has paid out incredibly for my life and led me to an amazing career, if you are a veteran, the perks are even more substantial both while in school and as a veteran developer.

    I was a part of the pilot program, VETTECH, which gave me the opportunity to take part in this bootcamp. Starting from the very beginning with prework, I had a little knowledge of HTML and CSS going in but the amount of information I learned that I had not known beforehand was astounding. Once you have your seat in the next cohort, that is where the real challenge begins. I do not think I was fully prepared to be working 12hrs a day for 3 months straight. I believe this was the most challenging part aside from  the mass amount of knowledge getting thrown your way. All of it was well worth it as I managed to get my first job in the industry about 1 week after I graduated. I  am super excited to start my new career and am thankful to the Sabio staff for providing such great training.

    Pros:
    -Great wealth of knowledge from all of the instructors
    -Plenty of resources from their wiki and trello boards
    -Instructors are helpful and there when you need them
    -During the job hunting portion, I was absolutely lost and they helped me stay on track and get my LinkedIn good to go
    -Continued support after graduation

    Cons:
    -I am not able to think of any as I had a great experience. I learned a lot, whether doing research or hopping on the Q. Just remember, you get out of it what you put in.
