You’ll arrive at 9.00 in the morning and leave at 17.00 every day.

This skillset will help you become a fully rounded developer. You will learn HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Java and much more.

    Designed for students with absolutely no prior programming knowledge, you will learn to code and become a Front-End “MERN Stack” Developer (HTML, CSS, Javascript, Vue, and Bootstrap to name a few), and “MERN Stack” (MongoDB, Express, React and Node.js). Because the program covers both front and back-end programming, after 500hrs, you'll become a full stack developer, ready to land a job in the opportunity-rich world of tech. This program is aimed at anyone that wants to get their coding career started. “MERN” is an acronym for four tools: MongoDB, Express, React, and Node.js. These four tools, when integrated together as a stack architecture, allow you to perform certain back-end functions without having to learn a whole new back-end language. While traditional back-end languages like Java remain very popular both with developers and companies, “MERN Stack” is growing in popularity and is a vital addition to the coder’s toolset.

    I'm about to finish the Java Developer course where I've had the opportunity to implement some technologies that I already knew, such as HTML, CSS and Javascript, together with new knowledges related with Back-end absolutely new for me (Java). Until now I had just developed webs with Wordpress and made some little exercises with HTML, CSS and Javascript, but I had never implemented all these technologies together in real projects like real life, so this is the best point of Ubiqum for me: you work like you will do in a real company. Mentors are nice and help you when you are blocked (some more than others ;D) and they help you with finding job process. This is the other strong point in Ubiqum: you don't leave the school until you have the job. This school compromise was the point why I decided to sign up into the course. In resume, if you are looking for entering to web development sector, Ubiqum will make it easier for you.

    Hi,
    my name is Luca Bellarosa and I recently finished the course on Data Analysis and Big date at the Ubiqum Code Academy in Barcelona, starting from October 10th of 2016 and ending on February 10th of 2017.
    The course is very dense and since the beginning you are asked to solve issues in real case scenarios, while at the same time learning new software, concepts, and programming.
    Even if intense, the methodology employed by the academy, the so-called "learn by doing" approach, helped me to fix in my mind the new concepts of machine learning, R programming, and forecasting that I was discovering on a daily basis. Weekends were used to round off my knowledge of machine learning by studying the resources that are available to all the students.
    During the course you are required to report on your findings on a weekly basis, and this helps you further in fixing the concepts in your brain.
    The presence of a mentor that stays with the students during all morning helped me to solve many issues that inevitably arose during the course, without feeling the social gap there is between a student and a professor: this point is very important to me.
    Moreover, after the first month you start to make some coaching sessions to help you get rid of insecurities and to ease your entrance in the job market.
    Finally, the academy itself helps you with the CV and Linkedin and by hiring another company specialized in job finding in order to maximize your chances to find a job.
    The main problem of the course, in my opinion, is that the agenda is incredibly dense to be just 4 months, but I recently found out that they increased the time of attendance to 5 months, so this is not an issue anymore.
    All in all, my opinion about the course is very positive, and it promotes a way of learning definitely more practical and long-lasting.

    Quizá al principio choca su metodología Learn by Doing, quizá frustra, quizá te supera, pero una vez te haces con ella entras en una dinámica de aprendizaje continuo. Los mentores ayudan mucho y son una figura esencial en esta aventura. Nada malo que añadir.  Me lo jugué todo a una carta y elegí el As.

    It was a surprise for me to understand that Ubiqum was not only a boot camp, it was also a way of life. Ubiqum has undisclosed inner faculties that I did not even know were inside of me. It was awesome to develop all the skills and to acquire the knowledge to become a true Data Analyst with a team I will never forget, and to have grown for these months with all the companions and projects I will never leave behind.

    La realización del curso de Data Analytics y Big Data en Ubiqum me ha permitido iniciar y desarrollar con entusiasmo mi trayectoria como Data Analyst a través de la realización de diferentes proyectos de gran interés para las empresas desde el día 1 de curso. Durante la realización de estos proyectos he aprendido codificar en R de manera fluida y me ha permitido conocer el análisis de datos tanto desde una perspectiva técnica como desde una perspectiva de negocio. Además, el aprendizaje obtenido gracias a mis compañeros ha hecho que esta experiencia sea aún más enriquecedora.  Este tipo de formación es ideal para desarrollarse como profesional y como persona.

    He realizado el curso de Html, Css y Javascript. Con respecto a ello puedo decir que el curso esta muy bien estructurado para seguir la metodología que te proponen, el "Learn by doing". Dicho método consiste en eso, aprender poniendo en práctica lo que el programa y mentores te proponen. En consiguiente, los resultados obtenidos dependerán en gran parte del estudiante y el empeño dedicado a sacar adelante el trabajo. Como recomendación para Ubiqum les recomendaría incentivar la disciplina, por lo demás, muy bien. Buen ambiente, excelentes mentores y un equipo profesional dedicado 100% a ti.

    Not worth the money. 
    The place where the course is held is ok and nice and you have acces  whenever you need. Other than that I have no positive things to say.  
    The actual course content  is full of problems and broken links and feels like it's not up to date to the current trends in the sector.  Second although the mentors are very nice people it feels like they are not prepared to teach and have a hard time explaining the content especially if you ask questions that are about adjacent subjects or more in depth questions.  Also the time they spend with you is VERY limited no actual classes and you have to do everything on your own which at times is very frustrating. 
    The better part was the career program which helpe  with the curriculum and such and was actually very helpful.  The downside is that they don't have connection with companies to actually place you. 
    Over all I don't recommend this course. Very expensive for what it is.

    The only honest thing I can say about this place that it shouldn't exist. It's a complete scam, for 7000 euro. No real teachers, the're students there lol. The confluence doesn't work, full of mistakes. The mentor watched video games all day behind his computer,  doesn't care about anything. You are left unattended, they just take your money for you to sit in a room there and to watch Pol being lazy lol. Course is not done in 3 months, you have to stay longer, they cheat on how they advertise. And they lie about a lot, it's quite unrealistic. I hope it gets shut down.

    on beginning it was very good, they make a high professional presentation.

     

    Later, they came out with an 1:1 copy of a content from https://de.khanacademy.org/ and  a tutor who is very poor in language. She had no qualification in education, maybe a professinal but not someone who can educated others. 

    At all between read a book and practice and them is just one diffrence the price. A book cost you 50-100 dollars but Ubiqum  milliers dollar.
