    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 have always been interested in computer programs in general, but did not begin to become academically aware of these programs until senior year of high school. I was enrolled in a class that covered the coding language of C++ during my senior year for two months before having to drop it because I was enrolled in too many college classes while in high school. Upon graduating from Berkeley High School and becoming a student at Santa Barbara City College, my incentive toward reaching my goals in computer science seem to become unreachable due to the rigorous requirements presented to attain the undergraduate degree. In search of how I could adjust, but still explore my interests and expand my knowledge in the computer science field, I was introduced to Sabio's Full Stack Web Development Program. Yes, it is long hours, but fortunatly, Sabio's has very supportive, understanding, bright, and patient staff to help push you along with the rest your cohort.

    From the moment I started prework until I graduated from my cohort, its nonstop guided learning. There's always professionals there to answer your questions and give you feedback on your code. They prepare you to be in the job market, resume help, mock interviews, and all. I got a job as a developer 3 weeks after graduation. And the community you're apart of after you graduate is very generous about helping you out and with job postings.

    First off I want to mention that the owners Liliana and Gregorio care for their students. They have a sincere motivation behind their business and I witnessed this numerous times when graduates would come visit them or at our graduation ceremony where you could just see the sincerity, the heart. Great People.

    In regards to the program:

    Sabio offers professtional experience and I can't think of other bootcamps that do the same. I mean you literally are working with a client to build a web application with a team of developers (your other classmates). The Instructors, actual Lead Developers with over 10 years of experience each, offer incredible guidance and help you learn to solve problems independently and collaboratively. I was a Barista going in and around a month after my graduation I obtained .NET Developer position. Gregorio, in particular, offered crucial advice for applying for jobs and how to self represent yourself, a skill many developers may lack.  Also, you gain access to a thriving community of developers who all love to Code, Code, Code. Oh and I can't forget, you get the BEST hoodie ever at the end!!! Awesome program!!!

    Sabio is  an amazing program, both Liliana and Gregorio really care about their students. I had the great fortune of having Gregorio as an instructor and I seriously have never met anyone more dedicated and commited to his craft! The bootcamp is tough and there were many times that I felt like i was in over my head, but I always felt like i could count on my team to help. 

    I took the .NET course, finished at the end of June and it only took me a month to land a job as a Junior Developer.

    I completed Sabio's ASP.NET program in Culver City in June, and I have just accepted an offer for a development job at the end of July. The program gave me a strong base of development knowledge and I truly feel like I've been through a software project's full life cycle. The instructors are highly knowledgable and ensure that the curriculum, work level and instruction is tailored to every student's skillset. Experienced students will be consistently challenged while beginner students will leave with a firm foundation in fundamentals that will ensure they enter the industry.

    I really don't have anything but good things to say about Sabio. When I was researching bootcamps, their name obviously leapt out to me due to their consistently excellent reviews, and I have to say that they totally lived up to the hype. The co-founders, Gregorio and Liliana, so clearly put the student experience at the forefront of everything they do and it will pay dividends for you if you put forth the effort they ask of you.

    Background: No coding experience whatsoever (my computer literacy was average at best), never made more than 30k in my life, did not graduate from college. February 2017, I quit my job to begin my 3 month Sabio journey. June 2017, 2 weeks after i graduated from Sabio, I started working as a temp making more than double what I've ever made in my life. July 2017, I was brought on as a full-time employee at a financial investment company in downtown LA (this came with another pay raise).

    For me personally, the 3 month course was an everyday struggle and I wouldn't have had it any other way. Sabio instructors simulate the real world environment by not holding your hand through problems. If you're stuck, they will guide you in the right direction and allow you to struggle through issues rather than just giving you the answer. That approach forces you to interact with your classmates and vastly sharpens your research skills.

    A couple of weeks before graduation, focus shifts to job search. Sabio provides all sorts of tools and resources to find a job as well as a strong community to fall back on. The number of people that are willing to go out of their way to help you really shows the strength of the Sabio community.

    5 months ago I was working at a place I did not want to be, with no degree feeling like I was stuck. Today, I'm coming up on my 2nd month working as an Application Developer at a major financial institution and it's all thanks to Sabio.

    Best decision I've ever made!

    My life has changed for the better because of the decision I made to enroll in to Sabio's program. 

    I was a community college student looking to transfer to a four year university as a computer science major. Faced with the prospect of spending another two years studying to get my career started as a developer, I felt frustrated and wanted a quicker path to achieve my goal. So I researched some of the coding bootcamps in my area and ultimitaley decided to attend a Sabio information session. At the session, I met Aaron Gibson -- who eventually was the instructor for my cohort -- and noticed that he was very passionate about helping people become programmers. I also liked the fact the Sabio's mission is to open up the world of software development to historically underrepresented groups. Aaron's passion and Sabio's mission (and their amazing reviews) were the determining factors in choosing Sabio over other programs. The pre-work session was a great way to dip my toes into the world of programming. The instructor for pre-work, Varr Willis, was an immense help during that time of my life, and I credit him with much of my current success. The bootcamp itself was tough, but because of my wonderful instructor, my cohort mates, the support the Sabio provides, hard work and determination, I was able to successfully complete it. 

    I was offered a job a week after completing the program, and started my job the week after that. Now I'm a Jr. Web Developer working accross all tiers of development, and I'm making twice as much money as I was making before.

    Sabio was the best decision of my life. Sabio will teach you the skills you need to succeed as a software developer. And Sabio will get you that dev job you're looking for. Rest assured, this is easily the best coding boot camp in southern California. But beyond that, Sabio will become a family like you've never had.

    When you sign up with Gregorio, you join a community of software engineers exactly like yourself. New to the industry and hungry to learn. Immediately, you have 300+ connections and friends who are looking out for you. To help you through tricky spots, and even to find a job. Sabio grads are a tight-knit bunch (whether we're rolling a hackathon or not); you couldn't ask for stronger support as you begin your new life.

    If you're looking for results as well as team of people who will care about you both during and after training, go to Sabio.  You'll never stop thanking yourself afterward.  

    Before Sabio, all I had was a "job" and no way of moving up or out.  Now I have a successful career as a developer and a whole future before me.  Not only that, I have all of Sabio behind me as I take this journey.  The only thing I regret is not doing it sooner!

    I want to tell everyone about my experience AFTER I graduated from the bootcamp; your cohort experience will probably be different than mine, but I am absolutely positive that your experience after bootcamp will be the same.

    I struggled after graduation -  in many different ways - but I had great community get me through it. I was reassured that the learning and support didn’t stop after bootcamp, and I’m so glad that holds true today. You have unlimited support from the community, a team to join at hackathons, and a ton of opportunities to learn new tech at exclusive Sabio meetups.

    As I said before, your experience during bootcamp won’t be the same as mine, but I do want to give a piece of advice:

    Do not expect to be carried through this process. You have to push yourself. Sabio is there to support you, not hold your hand until you find a job, and they will give you ALL the tools you need to succeed. If you’re not being pushed, you have to push yourself.

    I did not have Gregorio as an instructor, but I have no doubt whatsoever that he has your best interest at heart. He really cares about his students. I think just having him on your side is worth the $$.

    PS I have a software engineering job and I like it :)

    I began teaching myself the basics of the .NET stack using the online platform Pluralsight.  However, soon after due to a looming company layoff at my previous employer, I was placed in a position where I needed to make a quick decision whether to continue my current career path or pursue a new career in web design.

    Eventually, I decided to make my move into web development.  I heard much about coding bootcamps and the potential they held but knew little about the specific camps or the differences between them.  I visited one and still felt undecided.  However, when I attended the Sabio orientation and experienced a very down to earth, no BS feel from Gregorio, along with what seemed like very appealing, realistic statistics regarding their previous cohorts and success, I decided to take a chance with them.

    The pace moves very quickly, beginning with the pre-work.  It definitely helps to have some background learning prior to coming in, as it helped me move through the program.  However, I knew plenty of people entering with little to no prior knowledge, and they made it through just fine.  It is very important to trust the system that was designed, as it is easy to feel anxious and overwhelmed, especially near the end.

    Regardless, I can happily say that I finished my first week in my new position as a web developer, which I was offered one day prior to the end of the program.  The program works, and it definitely does teach and solidify the necessary concepts in web design to help land your first position.  I eagerly recommend that any person looking for a new start and is interested in programming or web development to give this place a try.  Have a little faith, trust the system, and you will be rewarded.  The people running this camp are very experienced and knowledgeable and are working tirelessly in your best interest.  A great investment, and I would happily do it again.

    Previously, I worked as an accountant, but didn't enjoy the work itself and wanted something more technical and challenging. I had completed some Codecademy courses (which I would recommend to anyone prior to enrolling in a bootcamp - not everyone is going to enjoy coding), and I found myself coding in my free time just for fun. It was time for a career change, and I have no regrets looking back. Bootcamps aren't just a replacement for attending college, they're also a great way to change careers if you went to college for the wrong thing.

    Pre-work can be a bit of a pain to attend and isn't the most exciting, but it's important information. It's a totally different format than the bootcamp itself and more of a necessary evil than anything else - it is not representative of what you will do the rest of your time at Sabio. By learning those fundamentals prior to the bootcamp itself, you can hit the ground running and jump straight into the project-based structure of the course.

    The bootcamp is structured like an actual workplace where the entire class will work on creating a project together for a local entrepreneur, and I would absolutely say the format of the class put me at an advantage going out into the workplace. You can expect a teacher to be onsite ~9-6 Mon-Fri acting as a lead developer, but you should also expect to stay a couple additional hours to work with classmates.

    Sabio's goal is to make a full stack developer out of you, so typically work is divided into verticals. You pick an area that interests you, such as FAQs, and build the front-end, middle-tier, and back-end. Once you complete that, you pick another vertical, and the class builds an entire company in this manner using either Git (or TFS for .NET) to collaborate. Expect to meet with the entrepreneur a few times throughout the course to discuss his / her needs for the software and to give several presentations to other students about what you have been making.

    As graduation approaches, you'll start doing practice interviews and whiteboarding code to become more comfortable in interviews. Sabio will occasionally bring in potential employers to campus to interview students. I was the first MEAN cohort, so Sabio didn't have as many connections in the job market for those positions as .NET. They still did a good job of posting job opportunities and recommending employers, but .NET cohorts do have an advantage when looking for jobs. I would expect Sabio to have established a good amount of MEAN stack connections by the end of the year now that the first cohort has graduated and the second MEAN cohort has already begun.

    It took me around 4 weeks after graduation to find a job, but it's one I'm very happy with in both salary and job responsibilities. Had I been less picky, I probably could have found one a bit quicker, but you should plan for it to take around a month to find a job.

    All in all, I loved my time at Sabio and would still choose them if I did it all over. I feel like I'm a better developer than most people graduating with C.S. degrees, and I'm confident going into the workplace.


    TL;DR:

    • Complete a few Codecademy courses to decide if you enjoy coding before enrolling in ANY bootcamp
    • Don't form an opinion on Sabio based solely on pre-work
    • Expect to work 10+ hours a day (with much of it on campus)
    • You'll make a really cool project as a team that employers love
    • Everyone will actually work as a full stack developer (if you're in one of the full stack cohorts)
    • You'll learn practical knowledge and be able to beat C.S. grads in coding tests
    • Sabio has a great network for finding .NET cohorts jobs and a growing network for MEAN cohorts
    • You will feel like you've already held a development job by the time you start your first official job
