    I thought the bootcamp was overall good. I feel that I learned a lot, and in fact I am going to be TAing for the next session. My only piece of feedback, and something I plan on bringing to my session, is that there should be a little more stratified challenges. I get that it is difficult to cater to each individual student's skill set, however, I think it would be beneficial to the students on both ends of the spectrum to have a little bit of bonus material, to challenge the students who are excelling and to reinforce concepts for students who are struggling.

    This boot camp is definitely something you have to really think hard about. If you are serious and willing to put in 30+ hours of work AFTER class this is it for you. There is just so much information that you learn that it would be impossible to only use class time to learn. One great thing about this boot camp is the support they offer after the camp is over. You are allowed to keep the curriculum for an additional  year so you can go back and re watch and learn things over again. Overall, I would recommend this boot camp to anyone one who is willing to put in the hours.

We look forward to helping you finish out the course and truly appreciate your review!

    The course is extremely fast. That is to be expected. The course I took goes over Excel/VBA, Python, Pandas, Matplotlib, Javascript, HTML, CSS, and end with Machine Learning. This is an overview but it covers a lot in 6 months. The TA and Instructor I had were extremely helpful when I became stuck with either the homework or when we jumped to a new topic. They answered the class's questions and applied their real-life experience to tie what we learn back to the real world.

    The full time coding bootcamp has been one of the worst experiences of my life.  I've studied around the clock and can't up with the pace of the class.  $12,000 and 3 months down the drain.  The instructors and staff are all very nice and helpful, and I definitely have learned a good amount during the first few weeks.  The pace is way too fast.  They should have a much more rigorous acceptance test.  There's no way I'm qualified for this.

    Thank you for your feedback, Mike. We're glad to hear you're benefiting from the help of our instructional team but regret the boot camp is not living up to your expectations.

    You are completely right that this is a fast-paced and challenging program, covering a wide range of knowledge in a limited amount of time. Each of our classes are designed to build upon the last, and we do find that as the course continues, students begin to feel more and more confident in their skills. From your review, we understand that you do not feel this learning approach has been sufficiently beneficial for you and we appreciate your input, as we're constantly optimizing our curriculum and program offerings.

    We do have a multi-step admissions process to ensure that participants are set up for success and do our best to make it clear to learners that this program takes incredibly hard work and dedication, requiring many hours outside of class on self-study and projects in order to master the topics covered.  

    We are committed to students feeling confident in their skills upon leaving our boot camp, so we'd love to hear from you directly to see what else we can do at this time to best meet your expectations and reinforce your learning. If you would like, please reach out to us at (858) 519-8997.

    The power of data is remarkable and I've grown excited for because of this bootcamp. Frankly this course was exactly what I needed. I had recently finished a general MBA and did not select a concentration, I bet if that school had this bootcamp I would have chosen it for concentration. The program was rewarding because it taught me a new kind of discipline, a new way to learn, and challenged me to change my habits for the better. The curriculum covers an incredible amount of content and opens doors to other parts of data and coding. I'm very proud of myself, which doesn't happen often. If you have the time, the time, the effort, and enjoy logic, take this course. The Instructors are passionate about this subject and want you to succeed. Thank you Peter and Alan.

    I am about half way through my boot camp and have learned so much but nearly not anywhere near all of what we've been taught. The boot camp is really fast so my advice is to really commit to it so that you can take full advantage of your time in school. Go over each and every activity a couple of times after class in between trying to soak up all of the  resources the instructor and teaching aids give you. 

    At this point, our instructor has been encouraging us to start applying for jobs and he's been taking the time to do mock interviews with us which is an awesome value added resource in and of itself. As much as I'd love to start applying, I am still trying to catch up with what we're learning so like I mentioned above, you really have to be committed - because even if you are, the content may or may not come easy for everyone. If it does, great. If you're like me where it takes a bit to sink it, you're going to have to really put in the time.

    I am a 2018 graduate of the UC San Diego Extension Data Science and Visualization Bootcamp. This course is great if you want to jumpstart a career in programming or just expand your skillset. The curriculum is well designed and updated regularly to keep up with the current technologies used in the industry. The bootcamp is fast paced and could be difficult to keep up with if you are completely new to programming. Although not necessary,  I would recommend taking a little time to learn some coding fundamentals before starting the course. You'll need 20 hours a week to study at minimum. The more you put into it the more you’ll get out. Everyone on the staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. The structure of the class and the opportunity to work with other students on group projects were invaluable to my coding experience.

    I've taken this course from May - November 2018 part-time, and I must say, it has changed my life completely. From barely having much coding knowledge, this bootcamp has taught me ins and outs of becoming a web developer and provided clear instructions and career services to achieve my goals. I've also gotten a chance to work as a TA for this bootcamp, and I realized that this course constantly changes to provide students with the most current technologies and tools, which is awesome!

    I have been a teaching assistant for the program since February 2019. The program exposes students with the latest web technologies and effectively prepares them for the Job Market in San Diego. Upon graduating from the program, I have been able to secure a full-time job within 4 months. The career services and teaching staff team has been instrumental in my success in the program. I believe that the true value of the program comes from the dedicated support staff. Coding is hard for someone with no prior experience. I was only able to make through the rigorous program due to the support not only during class but also post-graduation support. Continuous support and consistent number to students returning to contribute to the UC San Diego Extension Boot Camp have helped build an invaluable community and network of support. Ultimately, if a student dedicates themselves, they will find success through the program.
