Savvy Coders

Avg Rating:4.88 ( 50 reviews )

Savvy Coders is an online coding boot camp offering the following classes: Full Stack Development, Data Analytics + Python, and Cyber Security. Classes are held Monday through Thursday evenings (for Full Stack and Data Analytics) so students won’t have to give up their day job to attend the boot camp. The boot camp is taught by industry software developers, and the class size is kept small to ensure students receive one-on-one interaction with instructors.

In the Full Stack Development bootcamp, students will learn the basics of full-stack development through a comprehensive curriculum that includes the creation of a capstone project that will be presented at the end of the course to companies that are currently hiring coding talent. By the end of the course, students are proficient in HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, Basic Markdown, interacting with the DOM, Git, Github, Agile, Firebase, UX/UI, Node/Express, MongoDB, and Heroku. Savvy Coders knows that soft skills and branding are just as important as learning how to code, so from day one, communication skills are fostered and enhanced. Students learn how to put together a comprehensive resume and LinkedIn profile. Elevator pitches and introduction stories are created and practiced, and students become comfortable discussing themselves and their projects.

Students learn how to put together a comprehensive resume and LinkedIn profile. Elevator pitches and introduction stories are created and practiced, and students become comfortable discussing themselves and their projects.

In the Data Analytics + Python bootcamp, students will begin by knowing just the basics of coding and/or data analysis techniques to become fully qualified for a Data Analyst position. Unit 1 of the program focuses on Python and SQL. It includes a deep dive into Python data types, debugging, turtles, modules, recursion, functions, algorithms, tables and strings among others. Unit 2 takes the Python and SQL knowledge gained in Unit 1 and applies it to large data sets to extract information and explain it in a clear and concise manner. Using Pandas, Numpy, and other data visualization techniques, students will prepare and present a Capstone Project to demonstrate the knowledge gained during the course. In addition, throughout the cohort, students will meet with our placement team to work on a resume and LinkedIn creation and interview techniques, as well as develop other job-seeking skills. Students will be given a voucher to take the Desktop Specialist Tableau Certification Exam and will complete a Python Certification through the University of Michigan.

The Cyber Security bootcamp is taught at an accelerated pace, so that after 24 weeks, students can tackle many of the basics needed to start them on a path towards a career in Cybersecurity. Every class will focus on what one needs to know (and nothing they don’t). Classes are instructor-led in either a small, in-person classroom or virtual classroom. 

Applicants must submit an online application and then be interviewed by the admissions team. Scholarships are available. Interested students can attend a free crash course to get hands-on practice coding and to see if Savvy Coders would be a good fit. All students complete prerequisites before the start of the boot camp. 

Savvy Coders supports the goal of becoming a coder and provides information and introductions to partner companies both during the boot camp and after. Graduates of the boot camp receive a certificate of completion.

      I am a recent graduate of the Full Stack Web Development boot camp. I have nothing but positive things to say! From the teacher aids, the teachers, and all of the administrative staff, everyone has it together. The boot camp was not easy, but I learned more than I ever thought possible in that amount of time. I highly recommend!

      Overall, I had an extremely beneficial and rewarding experience with the Data Analytics curriculum. I think the class is a well thought out introduction to concepts like data gathering, cleaning, and presentation in addition to SQL, Python, and Tableau. 

      I believe the irreplaceable value to the course is in the job placement - the mock interviews, networking, and the developing of basic skills needed for good interviews. The exposure to companies looking for new talent through the mock interviews was, for me, of surprisingly high quality and a valuable learning experience.

      I loved every bit of my journey with Savvy coders. From the personal touch with Dez, to me  scrambling and reaching out to teacher assistants after I accidentally deleted my project to Laurie giving her personal touch to our resumes and still keeping in touch after graduation. Not one question I had was left unanswered. If you’re looking for smaller class sizes and a bunch of great ppl that want nothing more than to see you succeed then this is the program for you!!💜

      Deciding to attend Savvy Coders' full stack web development was one of the best decisions I have ever made. 
      The 2-week pre-work they ask us to complete was an excellent preparation for the 12-week intense and immersive online boot camp that paves the way for understanding the concepts throughout the course.  This is a full stack web development where we are introduced to more than required content of what is needed to become a Junior Full Stack Developer. Agile certification is a part of the curriculum. The course involves pre-structured curriculum,  homework assignments, and capstone project in addition to mock interviews, demo day to showcase our project, and white boarding sessions.  Capstone work enabled me to explore various topics taught in the class and is the best way to practice our skills. All the instructors and TAs are so helpful. Job Assistance provided by Savvy Coders is the best and the encouragement provided to each and every student by the whole Savvy Coders team is exceptional.

       This is a great bootcamp for someone who is wanting to learn how to code. This bootcamp was challenging but provided you with the assistance to make sure that you are successful. We learned HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to create our capstone project. In addition to that we learned how to navigate through GitHub, and Git Bash. Overall this cohort was very challenging but was well worth it in the end when you get to see things actually come together.

      This course is a great introduction to the developer world.  In 12 weeks we were introduced to HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.  In addition we were taught how to navigate through GitHub, and Git Bash.  Node.js, Heroku, Netlify, MongoDB and Firebase are all used to help bring together a capstone project that is then used to help get you hired in the dev world.  The material isn't all you learn.  You are also introduced to many people in the dev world through meetup groups, and through mock interview days.   Several days are dedicated to showing yourself off to prospective employers who give real world feedback on your capstone project and on how you interview.  This is NOT an easy course, but 12 weeks of coding information delivered to you in (currently) an online format.  The staff work with you and provide you with everything that you need to successfully complete the course.  You will get out of this everything that you put into it.  If you want a challenge, and are interested in a career in dev, give Savvy Coders a try.  Our cohort had a change in instructor that did impact our lessons and curriculum hence the lower stars, but I have great confidence that will improve as that is readjusted to fit the needs of employers.

      I just graduated from the Savvy Coders Full Stack Web Development Boot Camp. It was a 12-week immersive boot camp, during which we learned JavaScript, HTML, CSS, Node JS, and Express. We learned how to make a Single Page Application using vanilla JavaScript, a Firebase or Node/Express Database, APIs, Axios, and Navigo. During the program, we each built our own web application (mostly outside of class) using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, then we each converted our projects to a Single Page Application.  This was a great way to showcase how much we learned both inside and outside of class during this short but intense 12 weeks!  

      At the end of the course, we had the opportunity to present our project to a group of potential hiring managers, HR Recruiters, and Developers. It has been less than a week since I've presented my project, and I've already landed multiple interviews!

      Each time we have an interview set up, we are encouraged to call our career coach, who is great at prepping us for the interview. She has been helping us since the beginning of the boot camp - from revamping our resumes and LinkedIn profiles, to helping us search for jobs, to prepping for interviews, and more. 

      As a total beginner to coding, I had to dedicate a lot of time outside of class to really comprehend the material learned in class, plus all of the additional material I had to teach myself to make my project come to life... but in the end, it was SO worth it. I was learning a whole new career in only 12 weeks! It had to be intense to be successful in such a short period of time. 

      I absolutely recommend this program to anyone interested in Web Development. Be prepared to put in the time and work really hard for 3 months! If you can commit to that, you will have the support system you need behind you to ensure you are successful.

      Elaine and Dezerae from Savvy Coders believed in me and helped me get into the program. That already impressed me. 

      My name is Johan and I just recently graduated from the Savvy Coders Full-stack web developers bootcamp

      I lost my job last year, but when I started looking around for a new position, I realized that my skill set does not match what the market is looking for. I learned a lot through self-studying, but needed more structure and guidance to get where I wanted to be. Savvy Coders offers this and more! 

      The Savvy curriculum is up to date and ever evolving to teach the latest technologies. The staff is knowledgeable and very helpful in teaching coding and career skills. The emphasis is on helping students become well rounded developers that know how to problem solve and find the answers to difficult issues. While the course material is extensive students are constantly reminded that there is always way more to learn, that they should keep digging deeper, and never stop learning new technologies and tools. 

      Bootcamp is not a walk in the park. Student should come well prepared and ready to work very hard. Daily commitment and perseverance are essential for succeed. At a minimum student need to know how to use a computer, have a solid understanding of computing in general, and have a good command of their OS. Preparing in advance on subjects like HTML, CSS and basic JavaScript is strongly advised. 

      The commitment of the Savvy Coder staff does not end in the class room. They are dedicated to coach and prepare students to enter the job market. Through sessions on resume writing, project planning and presentation, students are prepped to present their capstone projects to potential employers on Demo Day. And while every cohort is closed out with a career planning session on job hunting, the advice and council of the Savvy staff will always be available to alumni. I absolutely love that! Once you join Savvy Coders, you are part of the community for life if you choose! 

      Personally, joining Savvy Coders was a smart career choice and great life decision! I can highly recommend the Savvy Coders web developers bootcamp to anybody who wants to improve themselves and learn new coding skills.
