    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.

    A year ago I was really unhappy with where I was in my life career-wise: I felt highly unfulfilled and bored working as an executive assistant, making a few dollars above minimum wage despite having a college degree. I decided to do something about it - I wanted a job that was more challenging, well-paying and in-demand. I decided to do programming, and looked into bootcamps in LA. 

    I decided to go with Sabio because they offered federal financial aid through their partner university, as well as a very welcoming environment (Sabio is very much into promoting diversity in the industry). 

    Pre-work at Sabio was a wonderful experience. Pre-work wasn't easy, but Sabio staff is there to make sure that you are being given the proper attention or help that you need to succeed. The instructors, Nicki and Jitin were so knowledgeable, patient and friendly. If someone was struggling or falling behind, they always made sure to help and guide that person so that they could keep up with the coursework. 

    Bootcamp was also a great but even more challenging experience, and that's how it's supposed to be. I was part of the first ever Node cohort at Sabio, and it was a really good training ground that prepared me for the real world. With every module or task that is assigned to you, you are encouraged to figure it out on your own and get it done in a timely manner. The instructor is there to help you and give you guidance, but don't expect to be spoonfed. Aside from giving you the hard skills that you need to succeed in the industry, Sabio also hones your problem-solving skills and self-starter attitude. 

    Sabio also dedicates some time for interview prep. The last two weeks of bootcamp are mostly dedicated to honing your resume, practicing hard and soft interview skills, and job-searching. With Sabio's connections we were able to do mock interviews with a few actual recruiters and developers, which really helped us prepare for actual interviews. In my case, I was able to land a full-time software developer job within 6 weeks. 

    I'm telling you, it's worth it. If you are thinking of making a career change into development, I suggest attending an info session at Sabio right away.

    If you are somebody who isn't happy with his/her current financial situation or want a change of career into something that is in demand, a career in web development might pique your interest.

    During the fall of 2016 I wanted a career change because I wasn't having much luck pursuing the job I wanted and if I wanted to make any real money, I had to obtain a Master's degree. I decided to stray from my current path and find a new opportunity. I remembered hearing about a career in coding and how it was a trade in demand. I did some thorough research to see if this was something that I could possibly pursue. After doing some research, I narrowed down my choices to 2 schools. One was a completely online course and the other was Sabio. Though the online course was several thousand dollars cheaper, I felt I wouldn't be able to discipline myself if I were to study at home. I attended one of Sabio's info sessions and was pretty happy to see that I wasn't the only person in the room. I listened carefully to what Gregorio (co-founder) had to say and was immediately sold. I studied on my own time, took the pre-work, passed the assessment in 1 try and moved on to the bootcamp.

    The following three months were pretty stressful because we were tasked with learning new things on a daily basis. There wasn't a lot of hand holding and we were expected to try to figure out problems on our own. Our instructor (Mike) made sure to assist us if we were ever blocked from completing our task. Though we did get assistance, he rarely blatantly told us the solution to the answer. My guess would be, it would defeat the purpose of this bootcamp if somebody just told you the answer to everything. There are times when you'll feel like an idiot for being stuck for so long, and you will eventually doubt yourself. Inevitably, you WILL begin to compare yourself to your peers as some people appear to have a natural talent in this. But, it is crucial to know that everybody has his/her own pace of learning. Just because you are exposed to the same content, doesn't mean it will click the same for everybody. With that said, the most important thing (in my opinion) is having your peer's back. There may be a time when you are stuck and maybe your instructor has a jam packed schedule in front of him. Your only means of help are your peers and the internet. Luckily all my peers were super awesome people and we all got along. It is important that you have a good relationship since you will be stuck in a room with these people for 12 weeks for at least 9-10 hours a day.

    As the program begins to wrap up, your cohort will naturally begin to freak out. Our freak out weak was...week 9? People will begin to doubt their ability and whether or not their knowledge on the code will suffice in getting a job. Nevertheless, keep your cool, and trust the system. Sabio knows what it is doing. You may not know it, but there is a lot of knowledge in your head by week 9 that you may not be aware of. By that point, some things will just be second nature to you. Be sure to try to keep your weekly hours at 70 hours of code per week. They tell us to do that for a reason. If you are ever feeling concerned, you can always talk to your instructor or Gregorio about your problems. They are heavily involved and invested in each and every one of us. I wasn't the strongest developer in the team and I managed to land a job as soon as the program ended. As long as you put in the effort and can honestly tell yourself you tried your best, things will work out for you at Sabio. For current and future Sabio fellows, when in doubt, trust the system. Seriously, trust the system.

    I think the major difference between Sabio and other bootcamps is the fact that Sabio doesn't treat it's training like coursework. You get to work for a real company in an environment that is essentially the same as a professional work environment. You do some "excercises" in the first 2 weeks to get some basics down, then go straight into practical coding after that. You work all day (9-7pm), do stand-up meetings in the morning, and tackle practical coding challlenges that are demanded by the product you are designing. It's pure gold.

    Now, as some others have noted, it is a bit rough around the edges. The prework is chaotic and sometimes the classes are structured in ways that don't seem to be very well thought out. 

    There is a vast difference in quality between the prework and the actual cohort. VAST. The cohort is amazing. It challenges you, it can give you experience working for a real startup company and it forces you to put in the raw hours neccessary to learn coding for real.

    I feel like the prework would probably serve as a deterrent for most people. It was for me. Don't be deterred! Do the prework to see if you have a personal aptitude for coding, not as a demo of what the Sabio experience is like. The prework is not like the cohort. Do the cohort, you won't regret it!

    Hi, 

    My name is Anna and this is my Sabio story:

    Ever since I was young, I was told that I was to go to medical school and become a doctor. When you are told to do something so many times, you begin to think that that is what you want too. It wasn't until last year, that I figured out that medical school was not for me. Coming to that decision was very difficult for me to tell my parents, and even harder for them to accept. However, I knew it was the right decision for me.

    Long story short, I was talking to a developer friend and after deciding that this was what I wanted to do, he gave me tips to start learning on my own. But very quickly I realized that I would more help than that. So I began my research into coding boot camps. I checked many different boot camps and went to info sessions. Sabio was the last boot camp info sessions I went to (save the best for last, I guess). 

    I was very impressed with their curriculum and their approach to learning, which was very different than the typical boot camp. What sold me was that I would get to work on a real project for a real start-up company and get real-world experience. No other boot camps came close to delivering this unique experience. 

    Eager to start, I joined their 6-week pre-work in Irvine. There we learned the basics (HTML, CSS, Javascript) along with some C# and SQL. Make sure you do the "homework" and pay attention in class because this is going to be the foundation of the rest of Sabio. 

    It might seem like a long time now, but the 3 months that you are in Sabio will fly by. I was so blessed to have the classmates and instructors that I had, because we had a blast (C28!!!). The instructors are very skillful, caring, and patient. I felt confident that all my questions were answered in a way that was tailored to me. Not everyone learns the same way and my instructor definitely knew how to teach in a way that was easy for me to understand. Make sure to put in the time!! When they say 70 hours a week, they are not joking around. Put in the time now and you will be greatly rewarded. No matter what, trust in the system. Rely on your classmates and instructors during the 3 months. They are there for you through thick and thin. They become your second family. 

    And so, a week before graduation, I turned down my first offer and a week later accepted my first programming job. Although I had my doubts, once I got that acceptance letter, I knew that I made the right choice. Right now, I am working as a Jr C# Developer, and I am so happy with how Sabio changed my life for the better. On the event that you need help at work, your Sabio fam is there to answer any questions you have(you have access to it for 5 years!!). New to the tech world, but not unarmed, I am ready to expand my horizons and conquer the industry!

    Sabio is great. Like all the other reviews say. I was skeptical going in, but I start my job as a software engineer next Monday making $15k more than before (coming from finance/writing background). So the proof is in the pudding. That said, it's not a magic potion. They provide support, motivation, tools, community, resources. It's up to you to bust your ass and get the knowledge you need. This is not a diet pill, this is not a psychic hotline, this requires discipline and (if you're doing it right) it should be super hard.

    Highlights:
    -My instructors, John Darragh and Jitin (and Vic Campos) are the best and they know their stuff.
    -Gregorio's no bullshit style sets the tone for the whole organization and if you're taking notes, you'll leave the program a more effective, honest communicator.
    -Training in the .NET stack
    -Prework through Antioch was kind of a mess but Gregorio was responsive to any/all of my concerns.
    -The actual text and video training materials are unpolished but the content is solid.
    -You're not just pushed through and thrown out. If you value your membership in the community, you will get value in return.
    -It doesn't try to wow you with life-sized jenga or beer pong (this is a plus).
    -Diversity is a priority.
    -The instructors are real-life professionals and want to see you succeed (full disclosure: the *prework* instructors sometimes are Sabio grads, but they're good).
    -More disclosure - Antioch credits, as far as I can tell, aren't going to count as coursework toward a CS degree elsewhere (universities want you to take their courses).

    Sabio isn't a "slick" place, but in my book that's a good thing. It's just a few people working extremely hard (like to an unhealthy degree) to provide the highest quality training available.

    Why not full stars? Because like most things in the world, there's room for improvement. Like I said the actual training materials need polish, some safeguards need to be put in place to prevent potential instructor burnout, class size tends to flex above target numbers, and overall organization (scheduling, communications, structure) could be more efficient (and should be focused on ahead of growth). That said doing this was probably the best decision I've ever made.

    I finished Sabio's .NET program in Feb 2017 and it has been one of the best decisions that I have made. I spent my first two years out of college working a job that I did not enjoy and I decided to learn how to code. I first learned of Sabio through Course Report and I was impressed by the consistent positive reviews from past Alumni. After looking into other programs and going to two Sabio info sessions, I decided to enroll in the pre work course that would prep me for the bootcamp.

    The pre work course work was very helpful, they really make sure that you learn the basics before starting the 12 week program. The staff was very supportive and I was able to pick up the material with their help. Building a web application for an actual business gives your resume a boost and increases your chances of employment. Gregorio and Lilianna provide support and make sure that you are well prepared for your job search/ interviews. They are very invested in the Sabio community and reach out to alumni after the program + host meetups/ events.

    I know it might seem impossible to learn the coursework in a short time frame, but if you trust the system it will be very rewarding. It took me 20 days, after finishing up the program, to land a full time developer position. I just wrapped up my third week at work and the material that I learned at Sabio has all been applicable to my current position. I would recommend Sabio to anyone who wants to learn how to code.

    If you have the dedication to learn how to program, Sabio will provide everything else necessary to make you a hirable tech professional. 

    Key points regarding my experience and all you need to know about Sabio:

    1) I had no technical experience prior to Sabio ... I didn't even know what a div was.

    2) The entire process of choosing Sabio, doing the prework, battling through the cohort, job hunting and starting at my new job was about 6 months. 

    3) Sabio provides help through the entire process.  Gregorio, Lilliana, and all the instructors have your back.  They know what it takes to get hired and make sure you are on track for success.  You really start feeling the Sabio fam vibe when you are enter the second half of your cohort.

    4) I felt challenged 100% of the time.  I was always stressed, confused, and baffled by code but that's the name of the game when it comes to programming. 

    5) I applied for hundreds of jobs and within 3 weeks of ending the cohort I received a full time offer (75k) working as a web developer for a popular television broadcasting company in New York.

    The Sabio process works.  If you are ready for a new career in tech, Sabio is a safe bet.

    My situation and sentiments are pretty much a composite of the 100+ (positive) reviews posted on here before mine but certain parallels are worth repeating. For one, my concern that Sabio was the right boot-camp to help me transition into a career as a working developer.  Second, for me it was a gut wrenching decision to drop out of the workforce losing months of income.  I’m still not sure how other people are able to afford the time because it took a lucky combination of things aligning themselves just right and me wanting it bad enough to make it happen.  And on top of all that I was going to have to spend a very sizeable wad on the gamble that this investment would pay off.   Sure enough it did. 

    Before considering taking the plunge into a boot-camp I romanced the idea of a free online open source web development education to become a professional developer. Free online resources are plentiful and helpful. Using them I took significant steps in my level of understanding programing and web development concepts relative to where I started. The available open-source education materials although great were not enough to truly connect the dots for me in preparing for a job in coding or give me a true working comprehension of full stack development.  In fact, you will still find it necessary to constantly reference online resources over and over even as a working developer. No doubt it’s possible to achieve a free open source education but it’s extremely unlikely that you will be able to do so in the amount of time it takes to get though Sabio.  Doing it on your own would probably take a couple of years at best and with no supportive network to show for it.

    Obviously, there is no guarantee that you will find employment but your chances are great. There are intangibles you will get out of Sabio beyond just learning to code that are necessary to become a professional developer. Through it all I was challenged and pushed to dig deep within myself to not only to make it through the boot-camp but to get the most out of it that I possibly could and I loved it all.  Sabio reinforces a practice of coding cleanly, working amongst peers with a minimum level of professionalism, resume building and interview prep. By the time you start applying for jobs you’ll be coding with the kind of confidence that will dictate a great amount of worth in the market place.

    The Sabio community that Gregorio and Liliana have cultivated is an invaluable support structure to not only help you get to that first rung on the latter but to keep you connected, curious and inspired to achievement more. I cannot believe how fortunate I was to find this special organization and how it has led me to a rewarding career that also excites me.

    I found Sabio from this coursereport website when I was looking for a bootcamp.
    I went to the info sessions of two other bootcamps.
    I chose Sabio because you get to work on a real project. Not student projects.
    This will make a huge difference when you apply for a job.
    Sabio teaches you evertyhing you need to land a job.
    You will be coding over 60+ hours a week. The program is intense.
    Not because it is hard, but because you need to code for long hours everyday.

    If you do exactly what they ask you to do, you will be ready to get a job.
    Don't worry about what other people is working on.
    I thought that I was missing out something important. But that was not the case.
    You will work on a number of features of the real website development.
    And, you will get full stack experience from front-end to back-end.
    Don't get stuck on anything for more than two hours.
    Put youself in the queue and ask the instructor.
    I wasted a lof of time trying to do it myself. I thought I wanted to be independent.
    But you don't get to learn a lot that way. You don't get to work on a lot of features.
    You need to work on as many features as possible to show your skill set during the job interview.

    They help you build the well-formatted resumes. A couple of my interviewers really liked it.
    Those companies were the ones that gave me the offers.
    They prepare you well with interview questions.
    They do a few mock interviews with you which include whiteboard interviews.
    They go over a few sample codes which may show up in the interviews.
    They bring in Sabio graduates to share their experiences.
    After you land a job, you get 5 years of professional support from Sabio.
    So, you are not alone at your workplace. I plan to use this support well in my real job.

    My job search began two weeks before the graduation.
    During the two weeks, I did a lot of phone interviews and went to a in-person interview.
    At fisrt, I was scared to taking phone calls and goint to interviews.
    Gradully, I became better and better at being interviewed by companies.
    Within a week after the graduation, I got a job offer.
    Two days later, I got another better offer and closer to home. I accepted the second one.
    Thank you, Sabio, my instructors and my Cohort!

    I found the Sabio program when I was looking for bootcamps that accept the Gi Bill. At the time, there was only 2 schools that accept the Gi Bill. Sabio was a choice I selected because it was located in Los Angeles and it had the best reviews on course report. 
     

    Overall Experiece: 

    The program is designed to get you a job. Sabio teaches you evertyhing you need to learn in order to land your successful first job. You will be challenged in so many ways. You will learn a lot because nothing can replace this fully immersive experience.

    Instructors:

    The staff treats everyone with respect. All the instuctors bring a unique and positive experience to the campus. Sabio treated us like we were at a birthday party. I mean we had like 4-5 pizza parties throughout the bootcamp. Even our own instructors bought donuts and pizza for all of us. 

    Curriculum:

    The program is designed to be intense. You will be coding over 60+ hours a week, in fact, you might be dreaming of code while you sleep. You cannot get complacent. You need to be dedicated, determined and the desire to win. 

    Job Assistance:

    Sabio will build a perfect resume for you. They also, provide you with industry tips and tricks for job opportunities. They also have a huge network in tech space. For example, I got my first job after finishing Sabio in a week.

    "So what's the catch?"

    "There is no catch. You'll have to put in all the time and effort. You'll work for it, trust me"

    That's what Aaron said to me the first time I went in for an info session. I was just like you, looking at course reports to see which bootcamp was right for me. I didn't know if it was worth it, I was skeptical of a school that had almost 100% positive ratings (ironic I know) but $15000 was a lot of money to ask for. But in the end, I saw that Sabio was different from the rest of the other coding bootcamps. They teach you real, enterprise level programming skills. You also work for a real client on a real application. There is no BS here. You are getting real work experience because Sabio does it by the book. 

    Again, there is nothing given here. Everything you do must be earned. If you do not show up and give it your 100% you will not gain anything. This is all or nothing, 3 month sprint that gets you up and ready to go out and apply for a job. I was scared they wouldn't deliver about half way through, thinking it was all scam and thought I had wasted my money until this past week where I got my offer. Look, these guys have been in the business for 10+ years and they really know what they're talking about. When they tell you to do something, just do it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. If you trust the process and give it your all, you will see results. I landed a job out in LA after applying for 2 weeks and I'll be starting next week. It honestly has not hit me yet but I can tell you that I see why Sabio is the best rated bootcamp in Southern California (soon to be Seattle). 

    I thanked Gregorio for all his hard for after I got my offer and you know what he said to me? Not, "you're welcome for Sabio!". Nope. He said "you are a product of your own hard work". This man is definition of humble and would not take any credit for success he had a huge part in. Thank you Aaron and Varr for answering all our dumb questions and taking us through this crazy journey. And thank you Sabio for changing my life. I hope this was helpful and if you are thinking about getting into programming via bootcamp, you cannot do wrong with Sabio. Good luck.

    After doing much research and attending info sessions, I finally decided on Sabio! I went in for an info session on a Wednesday evening and I was surprised to see Gregorio the CTO and Co-Finder of Sabio there to speak to us. I was definetley expecting a recent graduate like other bootcamps. After hearing him speak to us and answer our questions with so much passion and straightforwardness, I knew I was signing up with Sabio!

    I had no computer science or coding background knowledge at all. Sabio provides prework courses to get you up to speed with the basics for the 12 week program. I found the prework classes very helpful. After 2 months of prework on Wednesday and Thursday nights I felt more confident and prepared for the program. 

    As for the program itself, go all in! It's a bootcamp, so it's intense. There will be a lot of debugging and time spent on google and stackoverflow but you are learning so much even when you think you are not. Once you've exhausted your options, get in qeue and your very knowledegable instructor will give you the bit of info you need and point you in the right direction to find the answer you've been looking for. 

    The community at Sabio is second to none. Six months after graduation and employed, I still get emails/slack from Liliana and Gregorio asking how things are going. I know they are there if I need them. 

    All in all, I definetley recommend Sabio! It was a life changing decesion, and I'm glad I made it. Those long days coding will pay off!
