Sabio is one of the best career moves I've made. I really can't thank Gregorio, Liliana, and the whole staff enough for the invaluable experience. Even after graduating, the job support was tremendous, and helped me land two full stack development job offers within a month of graduating. I am still in daily contact with the staff and the friends I made while attending Sabio.
About me: I came from a tech background doing QA, and had been wanting to become a software developer for years. It had been a long-term goal of mine that I’d work at on a daily basis, but it just wasn’t happening.
I tried making the transition into software development using self-learning for a long time, and felt like I didn't need guidance because of my prior experience. I was wrong.
In my experience, the curriculum and support that the staff provide cannot be replicated by self learning. I learned exponentially faster at Sabio than I had on my own. The topics go deep, and by the end of the program, if you put in the work, you will have the capability to make great applications. If you enjoy building things and making ideas come to life, the tools Sabio teaches are invaluable.
Why Sabio: I worked hard to get into another top bootcamp, and got in (I won't name-drop). I decided to join Sabio after only a few days of being impressed at prework.
I joined sabio for four reasons:
1. The instructors all have a ton of experience. Sabio has instructors who have decades of experience, while the other *prestigious* bootcamp I got into hires recent grads as head instructors. Seriously, look into it if you haven’t.
2. CIRR reports. Sabio has chosen to participate in third party audits, so they cannot fake their success numbers. Few other bootcamps do this, and this was a requirement for me.
3. Sabio won’t kick out students half-way through the bootcamp. And If a student needs to leave for any reason (family etc.), refunds are provided. Other bootcamps are not nearly as flexible. And some even kick out students half way through if they are not able to pass certain tests. Sabio tests you upon entry (after prework), and once a student gets into Sabio, Sabio sticks with them. They are extremely commited, even after the bootcamp ends. Which brings me to my fourth point...
4. Sabio cares. They stick with their students and really really care. They provide a tremendous amount of support even after the bootcamp. Applying for job can be stressful, and they are there for you, until, and even after you get a job. Graduates receive support from instructors and both founders even after the three month cohort ends. I really needed guidance after the cohort ended and it was more than provided.
All and all I did my research beforehand, but even so, I really feel like I lucked out.
My recommendation is, if anything, just check out prework. I wasn't sold until a few days into prework, and I'm so glad I stuck with it. Sabio's curriculum was a big challenge that I pushed though, and in doing so, it helped me overcome an even bigger obstacle in my life. Thank you

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.)
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!
- The leap of faith that isn't so scary- 10/1/2017Clark • Full Stack Engineer • Graduate • Campus: Los Angeles • Verified via LinkedIn
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.
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.

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 one—work hard, talk code, and forge bonds. Now go make something happen!
- Fantastic Program; Fantastic People- 7/25/2017David Laughlin • Web Developer • Graduate • Campus: Los Angeles • Verified via GitHub
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.
- Even after graduating, Sabio still delievers- 3/16/2017Kevin Reevers • Software Developer • Graduate • Campus: Los Angeles • Verified via LinkedIn
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.
- Long overdue!- 11/24/2020Ricky • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development at Antioch University • Campus: Los AngelesA little background, I attended Sabio a couple years ago after I separated from the Air Force after 11 years of service. I had taken a few lessons on Codecademy and knew that this something I wanted to explore as I transitioned careers. Although I didn’t want to fully commit to a CS degree just yet and decided that a bootcamp was the best option for me. As a vet, I was able to attend through Antioch University and utilize my GI bill benefit. I graduated with cohort 57, which was full of some awesome individuals that I looked forward developing with every day.My pre-work experience was a little different than most since I was going through Antioch. It consisted attending a class a few hours a week and learning the base level knowledge you need to do well in the program. The class was all veterans due to the fact that we were all using the GI bill. Our instructor Danny did a great job of teaching us what we needed to pass the entrance assessment you need to pass to be able to attend the actual bootcamp. I personally like that they have assessment prior to the bootcamp. It allows them to be able to weed out the individuals that aren’t really serious about the program or don’t fully grasp all the concepts you need to keep up with the intense workload ahead. This saves those individuals a lot of time and money, while ensuring a productive environment for instruction during the bootcamp.During the bootcamp you spend 10-12 hours a day, 6 days a week, learning how to become a full-stack developer while working on a real-world project with your cohort. Our instructors Dan and John were there between 9am-6pm during the week to instruct us and help us with things we didn’t understand. I can’t say enough good things about the instructors. They were very knowledgeable and helpful, but wouldn’t just give you answers and made you at least try and figure things out on your own at first. You might not realize it at the time, but this is vital to your success post Sabio. When you land your first job, the instructors won’t be there to help you through bugs and you’ll have to figure them out yourself. The experience I got working on our project was very similar to what I experienced at my first job post Sabio. Towards the end of the bootcamp they’ll help you with getting your resume together, applying to jobs, and preparing for interviews.My overall experience was nothing short of amazing. I went from not knowing how to code to receiving multiple six figure offers prior to the bootcamp ending. I will note though that I had an easier time than most in my cohort landing interviews and this was mainly due to the fact that I have a highly sought-after security clearance. I ended up taking a job as an associate software engineer at a great company shortly after finishing the program. I’m very grateful for Gregorio, Liliana, and all the instructors for providing me with the tools I needed to succeed in a career field that I have come to love.One final note is that Sabio will provide you with the tools you need to write your success story, but they can’t write it for you. You must put in a lot of time and hard work both during the program and after in order to succeed.
- Alberto AC • Software Engineer • Graduate • Campus: Los AngelesMy 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!
