- Go all in!- 3/28/2017Robert Mancera • Web Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development at Antioch University • Campus: Los Angeles
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!
- A REAL Real World Experience- 3/26/2017Edmund • Full Stack Asp.Net Web Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Weekday Training (12 Weeks) • Campus: Orange County
I'm sure if you are reading this, you were in a similar position that I was in 6-7 months ago. Either unemployed, or working somewhere you were unhappy. At this point, I am unimaginably and immensely thankful for the opportunity I was provided with at Sabio. Before further elaborating on my experience, I recommend to all of you to do your RESEARCH. Make the decision yourself. Most reviews on this site are positive reviews for the bootcamp that a person may have come out from because most experiences were positive. I didn't go to any other bootcamps, so I have no real comparison to delve into. However, I did do my own research and I felt that Sabio would be the best fit for me. Go to their information session. Speak with the instructor in the area and ask as many questions you may have. Go to other bootcamp info sessions and make the final decision for yourself. I am just going to give you my two cents on why I chose Sabio. It's long so TLDR is on the bottom.
Before starting, I had originally researched all the bootcamps in the OC area as I wanted to stay local. The thing that stuck out with Sabio is their no BS attitude. When you go to the information session, they tell you everything you want to know in regards to the job market, job expectations, hiring rates, their program, etc. They don't hire graduates directly to inflate numbers, and their program has constantly been adapting to the technologies and students that come through the course. The MAIN REASON I decided to go with Sabio is that you will work on a REAL application. Either a startup idea some client has, or like my cohort, an MVP for a client who already has a real business. I guarantee that you will not get the same real world experience, depth of knowledge, or opportunity anywhere else.
Prework was challenging. I actually had the disadvantage of deciding to start with Sabio a couple of weeks after the Prework had already begun. It took a lot of self-studying at home and catching up to pass the assessment but I did it! You need to make sure that you are ready to learn, ask questions, and study on your own. Do the homework, keep up with class, and you should be fine. I was lucky to have Komron AND Brijesh as teachers and they were amazing. Both are very smart and have tons of knowledge to share with you about what we learn at Sabio.
Once we started bootcamp, it was a whole different level of committment. When they say you need to spend 70 hours a week, they are not kidding. Obviously, this number comes down to YOU and YOU only. If YOU do not put in the time and effort, YOU will not come out of the program on the same level of experience and skill as someone who does not. Nothing can subsitute for the time and effort that you need to put into this program to get the most out of it. Be ready to do nothing but code. If YOU do, you will get a job, you will be successful, and you will learn a TON.
I had Aaron sifu as our bootcamp instructor C28! C28! He is the coolest, nicest, and down to earth guy you will ever meet. He is super patient with any question that you have, no matter how stupid. I also really love that he doesn't try to give you the answer, but always will go over with you the process you need to take to debug any issue. That way, you can learn to solve things on your own, and start becoming an independent developer. This, is a HUGE skill in itself as researching and learning on your own are invaluable skills in this industry.
Other things you experience during the cohort are agile/scrum methodologies, which really help to stay organized and communicative. You get to talk with the client every week, and get the real world experience of dealing with changing features, scrapping features, or totalling revamping certain pages to fit the client's needs. You also have the opportunity to work on different API's that exist out there, or work on huge features that the application requires. This is where PUTTING IN THE WORK AND TIME is important. The more work you are able to finish, the more work you can do, which results in more real world experience. You can work on MORE API's, more features, and more experience dealing with issues. This only gives you a step up on your job search.
The Job Assistance is also HUGE. This was actually the most important aspect of a bootcamp that I was looking for. The thing about Sabio that impressed me was that they fully prepare you for the last 2 weeks of the bootcamp to destroy any interview that you enter. Each day was different but you go over at least 200 interview questions, go in depth on harder questions/whiteboarding, interview practice, non-technical interview practice, resume reviews/changes, linkedin prep, learn Git and AWS, and more. I began 2 weeks ago, scared and unconfident, and now I have the confidence to go into any interview and be sure that the experience came out positvely. I started applying at the end of week 10, and had 5 interviews and an offer by the end of week 12. Now I am employed and ready to work. The job market is HUGE. When they say there are a lot of jobs out there, they aren't lying to you. You just have to be ready to show employers out there that you have what it takes and that you are better than every other person they are meeting.
I did not expect to have a job, even before the bootcamp ended. I am a proud, happy Sabio graduate.
TLDR: Great experience and totally worth the price. Do your own research, go to information sessions, and make the final decision yourself. I guarantee that Sabio will not let you down. The bootcamp was an amazing experience and it really requires the 70 hours a week they say. Put in the effort or you won't get the same experience out of it as someone who is. I got a job before the cohort ended, and now am a happy employed Sabio graduate. NATION!
- Best Decision- 3/25/2017Victoria H • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development at Antioch University • Campus: Los Angeles
I cannot think of a better decision I’ve ever made than deciding to join sabio. The consistently positive reviews I saw here 6 months ago convinced me to look into the program, and now I can get behind them 100%. I was reluctant to believe that I would be able to learn how to code with absolutely no coding background and was worried I might fall behind, but after one info session with Gregorio I was quickly convinced. Pre-work is super helpful and prepares you with a solid foundation to get started. The bootcamp itself was one of the best experiences ever. I never would have believed that 12 hour days for 12 weeks would fly by, but there was never a day where I wanted it to end.
Before starting bootcamp, I was really nervous about the intensity of the program. However, while it is very challenging and takes a lot of time and dedication, I never once questioned my decision to join or felt significantly discouraged. They maintain such a positive environment that I knew I would be able to overcome any roadblock I came across. The hands on learning style is tough, but ultimately really beneficial and satisfying. You are never handed any answers, but always given just enough of a push when you get stuck to keep moving forward.
The toughest part for me was the job search, but that was mostly just the fear of the unknown. We spent a ton of time at the end of bootcamp preparing for interviews which really helped me to feel more confident and comfortable with the process. It was also extremely comforting for me to have a whole team of people behind me that felt equally invested in me finding the right position. Now three weeks after graduating I have accepted my first position as a software developer where I will be making double what I made prior to sabio.
Gregorio and Liliana are wonderful people who have created an amazing and encouraging community that I am so grateful to be a part of. They care so much about what they are doing and sabio never feels like just a business to them. My instructor Mike is an incredible person and developer who was beyond kind and patient with us. We were also lucky enough to work with Victor who is amazingly dedicated and helpful. OveralI I am constantly impressed by the quality of intelligent and good hearted people that make up sabio’s staff. They are also all extremely accessible and maintain one on one relationships with each of us so nobody gets lost in the shuffle. Even after I've completed my training, I know that I can get in touch with any of them at any time and they will do everything they can to help.
I could not recommend sabio more. It is a life changing experience that provides the absolute best instruction, support, mentorship, and community.
- Get immersed into tech the right way!- 3/23/2017Phil P • Tech Entreprenur • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development at Antioch University • Campus: Los Angeles
Prior to retiring from the Marines last year, I had begun to dabble in tech as I launched a start-up in the SoCal area. Having not been a tech-guy AT ALL whatsoever.... let's just say some mistakes were made, and I learned the the value and importance of having not just a project-management background, but a development background as well.
My intentions coming into Sabio wasn't necessarily to get a job upon graduation, but to be able to fend for myself in the tech scene, and make a living as a tech entrepreneur. Looking back to the day I started pre-work, I can say with humility I'm a changed man! Not only are you immersed in coding all day, you get to see first-hand how project management and client relations are handled in a real-world environment. The projects we get assigned during the boot camp are actual platforms that mimic the way employees would work in an actual dev shop, with our instructor doubling as our teacher and project-manager. Having that type of experience right off the bat really made all the pieces come together to understand the dev cycle, user interface, all aspects of the design and architecture, and all the necessary steps it takes to properly build and launch a web-app. The instructors are high-caliber; coming from well-reputable companies and having years and years of experience in many avenues within the tech scene.
Having barely done anything on a computer other than use basic microsoft office tools, I was nervous coming here, thinking that this trade would go right over my head and I would be struggling to keep up with my classmates. Fast forward 6 months and I'm able to build fully-functional web-apps, navigate my way through algorithmic-problems, and I feel myself looking at things more so from an engineering standpoint.
If you're looking to get a job in tech, start your own company, or build your own apps, I highly recommend Sabio as your place to kick off. Not only did they give me the tools I would need if I was looking for employment, but they give you virtually endless resources to help you grow as a developer and land the right job. Your time with Sabio doesn't end when you graduate either; they keep all resources open to all graduates, and ensure everyone is moving in the right direction. They had countless employers and affiliates come visit the cohorts on a regular basis to offer free interview prep, resume building, and give us mock interviews to prepare everyone for the job market.
Also, they are super veteran-friendly and the course is covered 100% by the GI Bill, PLUS you earn 36 transferrable CS credits from their affiliate university. Can't say enough how impressed I was with the staff and the culture here at Sabio. If you don't believe me, check it out for yourself and I'm sure you won't be dissapointed!
- As Shia LeBouf once said, "Just Do It"- 3/15/2017Tracy • Software Engineer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Weekday Training (12 Weeks) • Campus: Orange County
Pragmatically speaking, I made an average of roughly over 25k a year last year and now make 65k with a 5 year technical mentorship to boot. If that didn’t get to you, read on.
Before going into this program I was working 3 odd jobs while going to a CC. Through the odd jobs, I'd met people in varying professions as I was in the midst of my indecision for what I wanted to pursue as a future career. Had met people from an array of fields ranging from musicians, managers, professors, accountants, and athletes; though those who'd always stood out were the developers.
Developers were quirky and had their little idiosyncrasies to them that made them stand out, though they all shared an underlying character of being able to adapt to change. Technology is an ever growing field and nothing is obsolete. To be a high quality developer entails having to constantly learn new concepts and functions while staying up-to-date with the tides of technological change. So, when you're starting out, have a solid foundation.
Sabio will give you that solid foundation.
If you've tried learning how to program on your own, you'd see there are a number of resources out there that range from teaching you the fundamentals of programming to the syntax and basic functions of a language; though they rarely, if ever, teach you the soft skills that programming entails.
Sabio gives you the opportunity to learn those soft skills, allowing you the chance to collaborate with a team.
If you’re looking for a good money maker, then look no further.
Sabio teaches you the .Net and now MEAN stack. Both of which are stacks where the money, is definitely, where it’s at.
The bootcamp pushes you to your limits. It'll allow you the chance to become well acquainted with the realm of professionalism. And chances are, you'll be with a group of people who may as well be just as experienced as you are in that field. Sabio gives you an opportunity that honestly can’t put into coherent words. It’ll have you feeling a flurry of emotions, make you feel uncomfortable in your own skin, and yet, give you a small push in the right direction towards your definition of success. And at the end of the day, when you get the guts to put your best foot forward, it’ll all be worth it.
My review may not be as detailed as the others on here though that hadn't been my intention. Its intent was to tell you readers looking for a bootcamp to invest in the unconventional and to: Just Do It
- Wendy G • Software Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Weekday Training (12 weeks) • Campus: Los Angeles
It's important to understand what Sabio is so you could understand what it isn't.
It's geared to help you land an entry level developer role (unless you're coming with some experience to learn more). If you're like me without a tech background, it means having Gregorio and the instructors help build a foundation for yourself to enter the field and teach you how to continue building on what you know. Your cohort instructor won't necessarily stand at the front of the classroom and lecture you all day. Instead, you're pushed to learn "on the job". You're given aspects of an overall product to build out and when you get stuck, you're encouraged to google for answers or ask your instructor by putting your name on a queue where you then receive one on one attention. I struggled a lot initially because I was someone who excelled in a lecture setting, but coding is best learned through hands on practice and you have to push through it even when it seems like you don't really understand all the pieces. If you're someone with a little more experience, they'll make sure you're challenged. Overall, you have a responsibility to put in the time and effort and communicate your concerns/struggles/goals with Gregorio, Liliana, or your instructors just like they have the responsibility to try and help you get to where they genuinely want you to be.
Sabio won't spoonfeed you the knowledge you need or get the job for you. You are the one that needs to put in the 70 hours/week. You are the one that will eventually be applying to jobs and studying for those interviews. But Gregorio, Liliana and your instructor will be with you every step of the way.
My job search data: I applied to 179 jobs in total (definitely on the lower end of what we were supposed to), I received 21 rejections, 10 in person interviews and countless assessments and recruiter calls. On day 90, I received and accepted my second job offer with a company that understood the value of a Sabio graduate. You may be the person that gets a job within a month of graduating or, like me, it might take you a little longer and that's okay. Job searching is a stressful complex mess and there are all sorts of barriers and factors. Keep at it anyway. On days when I felt like I couldn't do it anymore, I dragged myself to the Antioch campus so that Gregorio, Liliana and my instructors could keep pushing me. Trust their process and their wisdom.
Being a part of Sabio means being a part of a community that I've personally seen Gregorio fiercely protect. I deeply respect what he and Liliana are building here and can tell you that they are committed to help you succeed. They are readily available to answer your questions and are constantly improving their pre-work, lab and cohort processes. Without Sabio, I would've been stuck as a temp receptionist with a college degree and I owe them so much not just for the tech skills I've gained or my cohort I've grown to love but for helping me find the confidence I needed to keep going.
- Fraudulent job placement practices- 3/8/2017Dave • Applicant • Course: Full Stack Weekday Training (12 weeks) • Campus: Los Angeles
I did not like Sabio's deceptive practices regarding job interviews and resumes. They have their students work on a web development project from a random company that wants a website done. (They claim that they "no longer" receive payment from the company for this.) Then, when the students graduate, they are instructed to lie on their resumes and to list that they worked full-time as a "junior developer" for the outside company, and to never mention Sabio on their resume or in interviews "due to negative stigma associated with bootcamps." As part of this deal, the outside company gets the free website and agrees to play along and tell any future employers calling for references that the student was a good "employee." Obviously, this is a complete lie, since it was not the student's first "junior development job." Rather, they were a student the entire time, started from practically no knowledge of coding, and Sabio was using the web project as a training exercise. Sabio is telling their students to commit resume and application fraud, and to lie during interviews, and I'm sure many employers would not be very happy to find out about this later on. Also, what happens ten or twenty years from now when the student applies to a company, or a government agency requiring a security clearance, where an in-depth background investigation is conducted, and the future potential employer learns that the student's career was started with resume fraud? One only needs to do a Google search to find news articles about a company executive, etc., who was fired when their past resume fraud came to light. So, while this helps Sabio have good job placement stats, in the long-run it hurts students' future careers.
Response From: Liliana Monge of SabioTitle: CEO & Co-FounderWednesday, Mar 08 2017Dave,You are clearly upset and that is unfortunate. Your feedback, lack of mention of our actual training and inaccurate reporting of what goes on inside of our training leads us to concluded that you are the student we dismissed from our prework. We understand you are very upset and are sorry that we could not make it work with you. From the start we were very clear with you that we do not accept everyone into the program.We support your suggestion and invite people to do a simple search on Google or LinkedIn to disprove many of the statements that you have made. The information is out there, you just have to take a minute and look it up. For example here is one of our very real clients and projects: https://midineromifuturo.com.You will find our name, Sabio, all over the source code which makes it impossible for anyone to deny an association with us.There really isn't much more to say other than to invite anyone to visit with out CTO and co-founder in person or on-line. He is available every Wednesday evening and often spends up to 3 hours answering questions from people throughout the country. He does not leave until all your questions are answered. Obviously, you should ask anyone in the LA and OC metro areas about any of the above statements.
- Sabio gave me the tools to launch my Startup- 3/3/2017HECTOR BELTRAN • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development at Antioch University • Campus: Los Angeles
I can honestly say that making the decision to go through Sabio was one of the best decision I've ever made. After having spent the majority of my professional life in the car business, wearing just about every hat, I was not sure how I would adapt to being in an school type environment for 12 weeks. It turned out to be nothing like your typical school structure and that was part of the magic that makes Sabio work. This bootcamp has a really strong emphasis on a learn by doing approach as it is comprised of TONS of hours coding building a real application.
Before I came into this program I was not very computer savy but the beauty of this program is that you really can come from any walk of life and as long as you are willing to truely dedicate yourself throughout the course of this program you will come out of it with a long list of very strong capable abilities to help you get the job you're looking for or launch that startup you've been thinking about starting.
The truth is Sabio and its instructors really challenged the hell out of me to put everything I had into the program and although it was tough on my life at the time I really have to thank them from the bottom of my heart for helping me put things into perspective as to the reason why I was there. Afterall 3 months goes by in a flash and the rewards for putting in your ultimate effort will benefit you greatly once you're done with the program.
The last thing I like to mention is the community and mentorship. I've currently been working on my own application as I've chosen to go the entrepreneur route. If anyone would have told me I would have had this kind of support after cohort I would have totally said "c'mon please.. there's no way" afterall they already have my money why would anyone continue investing time/resources into me after the contract ends. I guess the car business made me way too skeptical and bitter. Lol. It turns out when you graduate from Sabio they SERIOUSLY STILL HAVE YOUR BACK. I can't tell you how amazing it is to have access to the Sabio community. From getting unstuck when you have a coding or build issue to ongoing professional developement. Boom! I hereby vouch for Sabio being the best coding Bootcamp ever!
(Insert Shia Labeouf "JUST DO IT!" GIF here)
Thank you Sabio!

- Sabio gard on why Sabio is awesome- 2/25/2017Dan Tutolo • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development at Antioch University • Campus: Los Angeles
I graduated from Sabio and was interviewed by Course Report:
What I would like to add to that is that Sabio has all the bases covered. For one, it doesn't matter how much experience you have becuase with their student/teach ration which is like 5-1 or 6-1, you get tailored instruction based on your level. They will give you what you can handle and will always give you enough to challange you and force you to grow, whether you have zero experience or 20 years in another IT field. I came in with three years of Oracle database and some C# and python experience and my instruction was tailored to focus on my front end skills. Yet, there were people in my class with zero experience who walked out at the end of the program as competent junior developers with the capabilities to wire up the full architecture for any web app event starting with the html/css/js, shttleing the data to the middle tier api endpoints and using services to insert or retrieve data from a db. So this means they could consider any backend, middle tier, front end or even full stack positions.
amazing post graduate support:
Not only are you well prepped for interviews including whiteboarding and being forced to talk professionally about your code and prepare a professional resume, once you gradulate the school is there to advise you on dealing with recruiters and will even review your job offers with you. Super hands on. But not only that, there are multiple Sabio channels on SLACK where graduates can ask technical questions and get prompt replies from Sabio instructors and other graduates. The network and support grows with each cohort and you will always be part of the Sabio family.
Whatever you do, espcially if you are vet and have housing allowace (because you can use your GI BILL at Sabio), make sure Sabio is on the top of your list for consideration!
- Kimberly • Web Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Weekday Training (12 weeks) • Campus: Los AngelesMaking the decision to join Sabio's developer program was hands down one of the best decisions I've ever made. After working as a producer/actress for several years, I was looking for a career change that would allow me to utilize my analytical and creative sides and earn a more money while doing it. When I started learning more about coding, it seemed like something that would check all boxes. So back in September, after reading all of the rave reviews on Course Report, I decided to attend an information session to find out for myself if everything was as great as folks were making it out to be. At the session, Gregorio did a great job of answering everyone's questions and by the time I left I was convinced that signing up was the absolute right move for me. I love the fact that they offer a pre-work class before you start the 12-week developer program to help you ramp up to building a real-world application. I started pre-work in October and the 12-week program in November. Considering the fact that they're teaching you the full stack, along with the various frameworks, libraries, and technologies that come along with that, the program was definitely intense and thorough. Our instructor Mike was amazing and did a phenomenal job making the concepts plain and encouraging us through each and every step of the process. Our cohort was also blessed to have Gregorio teach us part of the time,which allowed us to experience a different teaching style that helped all of us reach our full potential as developers. Even though we worked really hard, I have to say that my cohort was a ton of fun and we all grew really close. It's great having so many people rooting for your success and everyone looks out for everyone else's best interest. For anyone wondering about employment after successful completion of the program, I'm pleased to report that I got a job offer before the end of the program with a salary that I'm very satisfied with! I'm so incredibly grateful for Gregorio and Liliana's vision, hard work, and dedication to all of us. I truly thank God for the fact that going through Sabio's developer program has given me an opportunity to attain an awesome skill set that will help propel my career and dreams forward while allowing me to provide a better life for my family. If you have the opportunity to do the same, you have to take it because you will not regret it!

If you're reading this then it must mean you've taken the scary step in changing your life for the better. Brief history about me, I was in the finance industry for a long time and I wanted to make a change. I kept seeing how the world is now centered around technology and felt that I needed to be a part of this industy else I'll fall behind in life.
I was TERRIFED about starting a new career, and had a lot of doubt in my mind about making the move. The worse comes from family and friends and some will try their hardest to convince you that there's too many "unknowns" about this and to not make the move. But at the end of the day, it's your life, not theirs. If you're not satisfied with your career, don't listen to the doubters and make the move!
I attended an infosession (every wednesday) and was convinced that Sabio is the bootcamp for me. What set them apart from the others is they don't try to entice you with how much their graduates make or how "cool" their campus is or any other of that "sales talk" jargon. Gregorio kept it real and told you EXACTLY what to expect when you come in. And they offer extensive interview prep during the end of the bootcamp and 5 years of guidance and assistance after you graduate. No other bootcamp offered this and this sealed the deal for me.
There will be days where you feel overwhelmed, there will be days when you feel like everyone is smarter and faster than you, there will be days when you question yourself if you made the right choice. So how do you combat those feelings? It's really hard, but STAY POSITIVE. The instructors are there to guide you not only professionally, but emotionally as well. And they do a dam good job of it too. Do not be afraid to approach them with any trouble you have, they encourage it.
But don't let this scare you. This really is a "work hard, play hard" environment. Gregorio and the instructors do a great job providing that kind of atmosphere. Your cohort and Sabio will be your family for the next 3 months and you all will have a lot of fun. My cohort had 12 people in it and we all got along really well and had lots of fun coding together. My cohort ended late December 2016 and a lot of us are still friends after the bootcamp ended and more than half of us (including me) already have jobs.
So if you're still on the fence with Sabio, take the plunge and do it. I did and it was one of the best moves I've made in life. You gain credible professional experience and you make life long friends at the end. I would not trade the experience for anything. Thanks Gregorio, Liliana, John and Jimmy for everything!
