    Solid Career Foundations

    I was formerly an entirely self-taught developer who was in his third year of his data science career when I decided to take this bootcamp. I had been working as an analyst since 2019 after graduating with a BA Psychology and self-teaching R, but when I got a more senior engineering position, I decided to take the UCSD Extended Studies Data Science and Visualization bootcamp to shore up my fundamentals and gain valuable new tools to add to my repetoire.

    So far, that has been a fan...

    UCSD Extension

    My overall experience is to much to express, but it came with the combination of stress, persistence, and confidence. I recall the first month on learning the starting code languages and it was actually hard to understand, but now when looking back and getting used to the repetition of seeing it each week and understanding how other languages tie well together with it made it easier by time. Even when I got stuck with each unexpected error, I gained the persistence and motivation and tel...

    The Right Choice!

    Upon applying to the coding bootcamp (full stack flex - part time), I did not know what to expect.  I knew that I had an interest in coding and was hoping to eventually change careers into this field.  But I had seen mixed reviews everywhere on different bootcamps. Initially I kept wondering if I made the right decision to go into a bootcamp, as well as if I made the right choice in bootcamps.  I was nervous, scared, and continued questioning myself on this decision even into the first f...

    As with any learning the amount you get out of a program is proportional to the amount of effort you put into your program. This course is designed for people that can be self-directed in researching and learning new code. You have to be curious about tech going into this field, because the ability to research the obscure errors you may encounter is vital to your success in the program and in your new career.

    A challenging and rewarding experience

     UCSD's Extension Bootcamp for Coding will be a highlight that I will remember for the rest of my career.  I just graduated in September 2020 as a part time student.  I came into the background with a slight background in HTML and CSS, and I read a book on basic Javascript concepts prior to starting class.  Having that knowledge prior to starting the program was IMMENSLY helpful because it allowed me to stay one step ahead of whatever the next topic was.  The first month was m...

     I decided to participate in this Bootcamp because web development has always been a passion of mine. I have been self-taught for years, but there are some things that are better learned in an environment like this. The best part of this experience has been the collaboration between the students and the instructor and the TA's.

    Awesome Course

    I got a ton out of this course, I'll try to highlight some of the best and worst things.

     

    Pros:

    1. Top tier instructors. These guys know their stuff and are always extremely helpful. They even began to take pride in us and our coding towards the end lol.

    2. TA's have your back. I remember before the class started someone asked something like "how patient are you guys if I can't learn fast enough?" a TA replied "I can stare at a wall for 12 hours and...
