    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 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!

    Sabio 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.

    I 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!

    A 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.

    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 has been one of the greatest professional and career choices that I have made. From the pre-work, being in the course, and graduating I have no complains about the program. This bootcamp is intense, challenging, and rewarding. While in the program I was able to find my first employment 2 weeks before graduating the program.

    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.

    This is a really good experience !  The instructors are solid and have great insight to the real tech world. I would like to point out that this is a coding bootcamp so the course can be  and should expected to be fast paced in comparison to a college environment. Before attending this course I had no prior experience in development and I was able to land a job in the middle of a pandemic. Sabio does have really great connections throughout the country from enterprise  to start ups that can put you in a positio to land that interview for the tech job you're lookin  for. For veterans,  you can utilize the Post 9/11 and Vet Tec. I used the Vet Tec.

    If you're reading this you probably have the same questions as I did. You probably are trying to pivot your career, or are trying to get a good one without getting into the atrocious student debt life. You've also been researching relentlessly on bootcamps. You're probably asking a variant of the following: "Is it worth all this money? All this time? My social life? Will I get a job after the program?" The short answer is yes. I wish I had enrolled way before. I got a job as a full stack developer in just over a month after graduating, and many got it before that.

    You will learn and do impressive projects that employers love to see on a portfolio. The instructors and the owners even teach you how to get the job at the end, what to do during an interview, how to talk to recruiters, etc.

    Yes, the hours are long and you will get frustrated while learning a difficult subject, but it is a worthy short-term sacrifice for your future. If you feel that you're ready for it, do not hesitate like I did, and enroll in Sabio!

    Bottom line: This bootcamp works.  I got a job offer within the first 2 weeks of graduation, and then even a better offer 2 weeks after. It helped me accomplish exactly what I needed to do: find my first dev job, and more: an amazing first dev job, so many valuable connections. 

    Sabio is effective because Liliana and Gregorio have established a tried and true process that just works: Prework, Lab, cohort (with the big project), interview prep, then post grad support. However, it's important to note that your experience may vary WILDLY depending on your campus, project lead, and your actual project.

    They start you off with 1 month of prework to get  everyone up to relatively the same speed. The basic skills you will learn are JavaScript, jQuery, HTML, and CSS in the first 4-6 weeks.

    Then, the actual cohort of 12-13 weeks (depending on the season) starts you off nice and easy, then leads to a deep dive into a work setting that mimics that of a professional dev once you start your big project, which takes up majority of the cohort. You will learn the meat and potato of full stack development: ReactJs, C# .NET, SQL, etc. There is great value in this setting because your potential employers will appreciate that you have experience in standard software development (GIT, TFS, Agile etc), giving you a huge leg up against other candidates.

    The Big Project: This is probably the main selling point of your resume. Sabio connects each cohort with an entrepreneur who needs an MVP. You get a project lead (one of the 3 Sabio instructors) and develop a real web application in a professional setting. For most Sabio fellows on the job hunt, the way they sell this "start up company" work experience is CRITICAL to impressing potential employers.

    As mentioned before, this is where some fellows may face problems. Personally, I was fortunate enough to have a great lead and a great project. Not everyone will be so lucky. Your quality of instruction and experience will vary wildly depending on your campus (each campus has an on site instructor), who your project lead is, and overall, your actual project. Your lead is not always the instructor from your campus. You don't choose your project lead or the project, so it's a bit of a Russian roulette.

    The last two weeks of cohort always seems to be experimental, and the quality here may again vary. For me, they provided valuable skills for interview prep which landed me 2 job offers.


    The instructors provide amazing, high quality post grad support. Liliana and Gregorio have many connections in the industry, and they will definitely help you out during your job hunt. Gregorio and my Project Lead Brijesh really showed how much they cared when they tended to all my questions and doubts.

    In conclusion, Sabio is the best choice for a full stack development bootcamp. That being said, just doing the bootcamp will not get you a job; 3 months will go by very quickly. It has its faults, but ultimately how much effort and dedication you put in will determine the outcome.
