- Veterans- 6/1/2022Do not feel safe to disclose • Student • Course: Full Stack Weekday Training (12 weeks) • Campus: Orange CountyI began with Sabio and was dismissed from Sabio in a matter of weeks. For starters, I'll state what is expected out of you so you have an understanding of that should you decide to proceed.
Hours are from 9am-9pm Monday-Friday and 9am-3pm Saturday. You will have a stand up at 9:15 to state what you have accomplished, what you will do in the next 24 hours and what your blockers are (any issues stopping you from proceeding in your work). Then after this meeting(about 10minutes), you are released to watch prerecorded videos of Gregorio (co-founder) explaining a concept, you are instructed to code along while he types like its a race(fast) and you are trying to type along and understand the concepts being taught. You will be given an assessment about each week after you passed the pre work phase and if you do not pass 2 within a 30 day window, then you will be expelled.
This sounds fair right? Well thats why they are so successful in being deceitful.
I was dismissed from Sabio about 6 weeks in for failing 2 assessments, and I was one amongst many. Not only were the assignments being assigned far too soon for us to grasp the material, but for those that had technical issues, illnesses, or any reason that you would not have been up to speed with the material that was out of your control, you were still required to pass the assessment or you get dismissed.
In my situation, I was given instructions to change my computer file paths in order to avoid future issues-as my instructor worded it. This only made my technical issues worse, but I wouldnt know that until later. I later "jumped on the "queue" (a phrase we use where we submit a question ticket and get a response in about 30-45 minutes for a zoom call to address a question) to fix the issue but the second instructor made it worse. I continued to have issues and reached out for help many times and when I expressed my concern that I would not be ready for the assessment because of the issue (which was caused by an instructor) I I was consistently told I was going to be okay. I was consistently told to get on the queue and my issue would be resolved, that I just need to ask more questions, however, I was still dismissed.
For Veterans : After learning more about others that experienced the same thing, I learned that Sabio takes advantage of veterans. They take their VETTEC, and then drop you and ask you if you'd like to use another educational benefit. It almost feels like they drained your credit card and then ask if you have another so they can drain that one too. There was another student before me that warned people against Sabio but I unfortunately got the notice too late. Please do not use your benefits at this school, once you are dropped, you cannot use VETTEC for another 18 months. Do more research, as you are doing now, and please do not make the same mistake I did and use your VETTEC or any other benefit somewhere else that is more creditable. There are many out there. It is not worth the housing allowance you will receive if you cant finish and then be unable to use the benefits for 18 months.
- In depth Sabio review!- 1/3/2022Johnathan F • Fullstack Developer • Graduate • Campus: Los AngelesOkay so I have been out of cohort for a few months now after graduating from Sabio and I've had a good amount of time to digest everything I have done in the past few months while at Sabio. I was looking for a in-depth review prior to starting the program and wasn't able to find much about the program as a whole so I will do my best to inform my future bootcamp grads what they should and shouldn't expect from Sabio! My review will be filled with my honest and transparent thoughts on the program. I will say I checked multiple bootcamp sites for reviews and almost every positive review could be found verbatim on another website which is still weird to me, but I'm not exactly sure how that works. Just know this review is from a real person that attended and graduated Sabio!
So after 3 intense months attending & graduating Sabios fullstack remote course I've decided to break down this review into what I consider the four main pillars of their program from my experience! The instructors, the curriculum, the final project & the beloved "Q" in no order. So after you have attended a info session and probably met with Gregorio or Liliana and been accepted into the program, you are now enrolled and waiting for the camp to start. Expect to hit the ground running on day one. They will meet with everyone and give you a roadmap of what to expect in the coming months. If you have no experience in developing like myself this program will be tough and frustrating but also equally rewarding. You will meet everyone from your cohort and get assigned your first tasks.
You will start out slow learning the basics of whatever stack you choose to pursue. For myself it was full-stack meaning I would be learning almost a new language, framework, or library every week. As soon as you start gaining a grasp on one thing you will be tossed into another section of their program to learn another thing! Get used to it because that's the reality of trying to learn code in a short amount of time. A lot of things I learned early in the program I had to come back and restudy later down the line just because some of the sections where just way too tough & fast paced for me to fully understand what I was coding. There will be endless hours of video you are expected to watch and at times it was hard for me to keep pace with the rest of my cohort. I advise you to lean on your classmates, many of them will be going through similar struggles and the more collective your cohort becomes the easier it will be to reach out and ask for help. I would hop on zoom calls constantly with them and we would discuss solutions to our problems. I would say the way the course is setup for you to learn is decent, some sections are far better than others. Some days we would get live instruction which always was awesome but it was never a consistent thing which I really disliked. It was always at random times & unexpectedly for the most part. And then some days you will spend most of your day watching videos trying to understand the reasoning behind the code and coding along, which can be tough at times! Overall looking back now I will say I'm happy with everything we were presented in regards to our development but expect some frustration and confusion due to different things out of your control. You need to realize early on you will not be a master by any means and many of the things you learn wont stick and that has much more to do with the time constraints then Sabio!
Keep in mind I'm writing this early 2022 so the way the program is run now may or may not be different when you go through. This review is strictly my PERSONAL experience. You can expect there to be at least 3 main instructors that share the workload of the cohort from answering questions on the Q, teaching classes, answering personal questions and holding standup. Stand up will be required daily where you check in with your cohort and instructors and give a review of what you have done the previous day what you expect to get done in the current day and a chance to present any blockers you may be having in regards to anything personal or within your code. At any given time throughout the bootcamp these same few instructors were responsible for multiple cohorts which range from 10-40 students. If you multiply that by the workload expected from them you will understand why I think this area of Sabio needs drastic improvement. Many times I was on calls with different instructors & their attitudes were condescending, their answers would be short and concise not providing me the guidance me and my cohort felt we deserved after paying such a large amount of money! If you are the type of person that likes to voice your frustration expect them to take notes of it and depending on what you said or how it was said it may cause you some problems moving forward. There were kids in my cohort who voiced their frustrations openly on our standup calls or our meetings and every last one of them was removed from the program for one reason or another. I recommend being very careful with what you say, not only for that reason but you may notice a different tone in the voice of certain instructors moving forward in the program. Me and my cohort discussed offline and agreed that everyone was not given the same amount of instruction, which in my opinion was caused by the heavy workload required from the instructors! They just didn't have the patience or desire that was needed to give every student the same amount of counsel which at times was severely needed! Overall they were nice people with very polished skills but there was just too many times throughout the camp where collectively the frustration was boiling over because of the lack of instruction from them! I had to hire a tutor and pay out of pocket to get a better understanding on certain concepts that I wasn't able to grasp with their teachings!
So essentially the Q is where you can expect to find yourself anytime you have a question or need guidance on a certain topic. They have requirements to get on the Q so don't expect to hop on there anytime you need help. The reality of this profession is you need to be a self starter and know how to source information and dissect it so you can help YOURSELF first before reaching out for help. The Q for me again unfortunately similar to the last section was just inefficient at best. They preach the idea from the beginning of the program to the end to "Get on the Q" and "Be efficient with your time" well the problem with the Q was there so many occasions where I would submit a question and it would sit in the list waiting to be picked up by the instructors for on average 30-75 minutes and I'm DEAD serious! In that time I would be attempting to research documentation online and find different ways to solve my questions aswell as reaching out to classmates, but the reality is you just need a certain level of guidance starting out in order for your learning to be structured as possible and the Q never did that for me. For the Q to function best as possible I recommend instead of having the same 3-4 instructors answering questions all day from different campuses all at once they need designated instructors for each campus tasked with giving counsel to select cohorts! If I was having trouble with .net one day and had 5 questions I needed help with, I could end up wasting 3-4 hours waiting on the Q while going down rabbit holes creating more problems within my code. It just wasn't effective and early on I realized that and thus felt the need to source outside instruction to learn as much as possible. They will tell you this is apart of their core learning principals to become self sufficient and all by design but you will realize early on that what they preach with the Q just doesn't live up to its expectations as is!
The final project for my cohort was nothing short of AMAZING! Sabio did such a good job of replicating a development atmosphere by forcing us to reach out to each other and come up with ideas collectively. Tasking us with many different objectives that would test our skills. We ended up building a website for a real business with real requirements from an entrepreneur. We met with him collectively and got a great understanding on what he expected and then afterwards what the instructors expected from us. It was the first time we were able to see the big picture and have a chance to connect all the work we had done. From building out API controllers to creating stored procedures in the database to building the frontend with react and working on the visual presentation to the customer. It was honestly such a great experience that gave us the confidence to leave the program feeling like we had completed something meaningful as real world devs!
My conclusion overall is Sabio was a good experience for me. If I were to go through the program again I would lean more towards one strict area of learning i.e the front end or back end opposed to learning a full stack and becoming a jack of all and a master of none. I learned many things that have propelled me forward into the early stages of my development career. Sabio showed me how to code and for that I have much gratitude. The best thing about Sabio to me is not the stages of learning code but the community they have built. There are so many people working in prominent positions that are willing to help you out just because you're Sabio alum! I will say truly there are a few things they can improve to make the overall experience of the program more enjoyable & orderly. I recommend if you are a new dev like I was to dive into some type of code before you start the program whether that's udemy, leetcode or any other awesome websites that can help you begin understanding the fundamentals of coding. It will boost your experience at Sabio. If you find yourself more passionate about one area of development like React and the frontend or maybe the middle tier act on that feeling! This is all about finding a lane in development and making money in the process. Cheers to an awesome 2022 and to all my future Sabio alum!
- So glad I decided to give Sabio a shot!!- 10/30/2021Martha D. Ayón • Web Developer • Student • Course: Part Time Full Stack Web Developer Program • Campus: OnlineCoding saved my life in so many ways and it’s all thanks to Sabio (School of Software Engineering) that I’m able to live a comfortable life financially while advancing my career as a software developer. After going to an information session I quickly realized that Sabio was a “good” coding bootcamp - legitimate in reputation in the tech industry and of course accredited, multiple scholarships, a deferred tuition program (which I feel speaks to their efforts in making the tech space more diverse for BIPOC & Latinx women in tech like myself), prepares you for the real-world by assigning you to a project where you gain job experience, etc. It seemed too good to be true so I did my research! To be honest I wasn’t exactly looking to switch careers, although I did want to gain more technical skills when the pandemic hit, but Sabio spelled it out so clearly and even provided statistics on the current demand for people with programming skills as well as their success rates with alumni. Unlike a lot of other coding bootcamps the CEO & CTO, Liliana & Gregorio, were readily available to answer any of my questions from day 1 (because yes, it is a big commitment when you decide that you are going to learn to code and switch careers!). Even though I didn’t have a background in computer programming the instructors are supportive, patient and demonstrate a deep understanding of computer science in general. I’m so glad I didn’t pass up on this opportunity and I have nothing but a deep sense of gratitude for all of the people who have helped me get to where I am, starting with Sabio!
- Fast Track Into Tech- 10/28/2021Koree Scott • Associate Quality Engineer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack .Net Back-End with React Front End • Campus: OnlineSabio is a fast-track into the tech world. Its more efficient than spending 4 years at a university studying computer science, having to take random classes and prerequisites before you can even begin learning about coding. It's more efficient than learning on your own and spending time going down all the rabbit holes and learning all sorts of random things that may or may not be useful when it comes to landing a job. Sabio tells you exactly what to learn and how long to spend learning it, after which you work on something tangible that you can show to recruiters to demonstrate your skills.
I took the full time program, and it is intense, something you need to be prepared for. The first half of the program is lectures and exercises, with assessments throughout to make sure you really understood what you've been learning. Instructors are almost always available for help with questions you may have. The second half is a real-world project that you will be working on that will rely on everything you've learned thus far. You'll be collaborating and getting hands-on experience with source control, two things you can't really get experience with if you learn coding on your own.
Myself and one other person in my cohort (107), both prior military, landed jobs before we even graduated. 4 months ago I knew little about coding outside of basic HTML and CSS. I'm now working for a big international tech company making $50+/hr. It is possible, it will just take a lot of work, and a little bit of luck.
- Conner • Associate Consultant • Graduate • Course: Full Stack .Net Back-End with React Front End • Campus: OnlineI got a job as a software developer no more than 2 days after finishing Sabio's coding boot camp. The curriculum has been well prepared for all types of learning, which includes videos, articles, exercises, lecture and one on one instruction. Weekdays you have access to instructors who are excellent at there craft from 9a-5p to help you through road blocks and understand the material better. At the end of the course you work on a startup companies web application that you can put on your resume as real world experience. Sabio does a great job of ramping you up from knowing next to nothing about software development to being ready to hit the job market. I have friends who have gone to Sabio and friends who have attended other similar boot camps and the value you get at Sabio is unmatched. From the help you get during the course and the quality of you learning, to when you are being prepared for interviews and the job market, to after you graduate and the additional services they offer past graduation choosing Sabio is and was an easy choice.
Attend an info session, reach out to the school, read their reviews. I highly recommend this school!
- Johnny • Software Engineer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack .Net Back-End with React Front End • Campus: OnlineMy experience here was awesome! I went from very little experience to working an incredible software engineering job in under 6 months flat. The course work is super thorough and the habits you build here are solid that absolutely prepare you for the real world of software development. They stick around to make sure that grads are taken care of and get into jobs that they are happy with. Tutoring and job assistance available post graduation!
- Not easy, definitely worth it- 8/31/2021Branndon Delk • Associate Quality Engineer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack .Net Back-End with React Front End • Campus: OnlineSabio is a great bootcamp for anyone willing to do the work. I did the full-time program which was 3 months long 9:00 am - 9:00 p.m. Mon- Fri and 9:00-3:00 on Saturday. And yes you are working the entire time except for your hour lunch break.
After completion of the program, they say it takes about 3-6 months to get a job in the industry, I and few others were able to sign offers before then but I would say they're generally correct about that assumption.
Now before attending Sabio I have never coded nor did I have any other IT experience, I was a machine operator after my time in the Marines making a few bucks over minimum wage in California, and now I have a job paying a little over 2.5x what I was making before.
The instructors do a very good job at explaining the material but I will say there are only 3 instructors that teach all of the cohorts at the same time, so you can definitely sense some attitude when they're explaining the same thing over and over again. I can't blame them for it really it's human nature but I do wish Sabio had more instructors just to give them a bit of a break.
- 2021 Remote Full Stack Review- 8/31/2021Scott Matsuda • Full Stack Developer • Graduate • Course: Part Time Full Stack Web Developer Program • Campus: OnlineI entered the program with minimal coding skills. By the time I graduated, I emerged with both the coding skills and general knowledge of software development to be competitive in the job market. And I also forged meaningful relationships and friendships with those within the Sabio community accompanying me on my coding journey.
As a recent Sabio graduate, I am now applying for developer jobs in the tech industry. Sabio has taught me the know how to navigate successfully in the job market as well as instilling in me the confidence to pursue employment relentlessly and efficiently. I will be accepting a role as a software developer in the very near future!
- 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!
