    Coming to TrueCoders I’ve learned that you will have a wonderful learning experience. Teachers that help you along the way even if you’re stuck on an assignment. I recommend everyone  to come and learn about coding here. You will never feel dumb but will be pushed to learn more and obtain new skills daily.

    One thing that I continually reminded myself of throughout the course, was “trust the process”. I perpetually felt out of my depth in the early stages, due to how intense it was and how much information I was trying to fit in my brain in such a short space of time. 

    As time went on though, things got easier and started to make more sense. This was helped by lead instructor Michael Doyle who was extremely patient, respectful and genuinely wanted to see his students succeed. 
    There are only a few things I would change.....Better assessment of student's skills prior to the class starting.  For instance, students with very little coding knowledge should definately consider the 6 month evening class. Also,  I spent countless hours outside of class studying on my own with youtube videos. 

    At the beginning of the 9 weeks, I never anticipated being in the position I would be at the end of it and completing a final project  with people that I genuinely enjoyed working with. To all the True Coders staff and my fellow students, thank you.

    I have been to multiple bootcamps to learn programming and I can say with certainty that TrueCoders is my favorite because of the teacher and the learning environment. Micheal Doyle is a great teacher because he is able to explain challenging concepts simply. In addition, Micheal encourages students to collaborate and help others. This in turn creates an atmosphere that is suited for learning and growth.

    TrueCoders was worth going through. We learned a lot of different and helpful concepts and they were always there to help whether it was job information or one on one time. It was definitely worth doing because my knowledge has expanded, and everyone there cares about you. But there are several things I would change with how they go about this. Also, PLEASE take what I say from the perspective of someone that has a difficult time in school (slow learner), new to coding, and has difficulty with creativity.

    1. The 1 on 1 time (after class) is only 15 minutes, which is difficult to understand a concept you're struggling with in that amount of time. It can rush the teacher and the student and sometimes I felt just as lost coming out of it.
    2. After learning one (sometimes two) concepts a day, we would only be given one exercise per concept to put what we learned into practice. I feel there should be more daily exercises from the beginning that would help us learn how to navigate through all the variations that can happen with each concept. We did have weekly challenges after several weeks of class that did this to a degree, but I think having challenges start from the beginning will be more helpful... so that if someone doesn't understand a concept early on, then it can be fixed sooner rather than later.
    3. I felt lost on how to come up with new code on my own to practice my skills and concepts that I learned. Often, I felt that the best way I could do this was by finding Youtube videos and spending a lot of time outside of class trying to figure it out on my own. I understand that a lot of learning is trial and error and looking things up for yourself, especially in a 9-week program, but I did pay a lot of money for someone to teach me how to code, and I often felt they would lean on the fact that I can look stuff up for myself and self-teach. Not to say this isn't a good thing for some students, just not for me.

    Overall, I would give TrueCoders  3 1/2 stars, because this is a place that does care about you and will do a lot for you if you ask, and you do learn important things to help you with code and job hunting. However, I felt like I could have been trained better and less stressed if the above was fixed in some way.

    I was enrolled set to start another coding bootcamp, and having to withdraw.  The setback was a blessing in disguise as I found this bootcamp.  Everything was 5-star from the instructors to the director.  It is truly ran in excellence and lives up to the TrueCoders name.  Even if you have never written a line of code in your life, you can be successful here.  All of this for the $3595.  Great Bargain!!!!!
