    So let's start with the awesome stuff- the teaching team I had was awesome- our lead instructor, John, was amazing and really did everything he could for us to get jobs and learn the material. He was approachable, he was good at his job, he was knowledgable, and he really had a passion for teaching. Likewise, the TAs were excellent- Tamara and Mark did everything possible to help anyone- even if it was just being a sounding board or being available all throughout the weekend to help with homework. Teaching staff- awesome.

     

    My problem is with everything else honestly- I feel like this "bootcamp" wasn't really used to it's full potential. When I signed up there seemed to be some sort of evaluation process, but ultimately when I got to class, it was obvious they jus let anyone in- this slowed down the class, and while I feel like I got a lot, I feel I would've gotten way more had it not been for people who honestly didn't care enough to do the hard work or were just not cut out for the job. 

    My deepest disapointments with the company managing the bootcamp though (it's not managed by UCF, which they only tell you after you start), were the managment and the "career services". 

     

    Career services was a joke- it felt like a tacked on fig leaf that the company added because other bootcamps offer it. They would send out "career advice" you can find on google easily and have useless Zoom sessions on Friday nights or during class. John the instructor actually did way more for us in terms of career services (even though that wasn't his job, setting up mock interviews, and even meetups so we can network more easily. 

    Then there's managment- the first thing that seemed iffy to me was that our Student Success Manager was a student only two cohorts ago, she became a TA and then an SSM within about 6 months- doesn't reek of confidence. I would habitually write long reviews about what I though could improve in the class in our weekly surveys, and never got any replys or notices any changes. One time, after a major incident I will elaborate on later, I had a belly full to say about it but all I wrote was that the surveys felt like shouting into the void so I wasn't going to spend my time. This was the first time I recieved any sort of comment on my survey replys, which seemed rather odd- basically all the constructive critisism is useless but only saying I think you're not doing your job prompts a "let's have chat about how you feel?".

    The incident, which probably pissed me off more than it should've, happened in the last third of the class, I think. For the entire course of the class the tone in class was very casual, with some swearing and innapropriate jokes. I don't feel like anything was out of line and anyone was harrased, and honestly most tech companies I had worked with (I have been in the tech scene for about 10 years) had a similar tone, if not cruder. Some of the joking was made during the showcase for our second projects, when one of the projects, a mad-libs app, was shown. Now, there were like two potential employers in the room, who were invited without lewtting us know mind you. Apperently that, combined with the conversational tone we've had in class and on Slack combined with a (pretty tame) meme I had made and posted on said Slack required an official reprimand. It started with the SSM, who for the entire time she was sitting in on the project demos was disrespectfully on her computer, calling us an embarasment. and continued with John, who seemed uncomftrable and like he was made to do this, saying we were stupid, immature, and this will not be tolerated, and then taking responsability for the casual tone we had in class.

    This enraged me. If you feel the tone is too conversational- that's fine, come out and say "guys, you're being a little innapropriate let's tone it down". But I don't feel immature, I don't feel stupid, I've had professional high paying corporate jobs, I've sat across the table from C and V level executives at major companies- and they all speak that way and they all like to have a good laugh, specifically internally within teams. Calling us an embarassment was a tone def move that mis understood the point of the class- either to teach things in the easiest way possible- making a comftrable enviroment being part of it, or preparing us for tech life- which is totally as innapropriate. I think it was completelty misshandled and we were treated as elementary school kids must less adult, paying, customers. 

    I can keep going but you get the picture- overall- amazing instructor and TAs, tone def company that does the minumum it feels is required from it.

    Title: Community Team
    Tuesday, Jul 10 2018
    Hi Shahar, thank you for taking the time to share your personal experience. We are glad to hear you constantly felt supported by your instructor and TAs - we also think John, Tamara, and Mark are pretty amazing! We strive to foster a collaborative environment among students and do include an admissions screening process to make sure that those individuals who enroll in this course are truly committed to their success. We understand you would have preferred more involved classmates, however, our mission is to help as many hard-working, aspiring web developers as we can, across a wide range of varying proficiency levels.

    We regret the management portion of the boot camp did not meet your expectations. The UCF Division of Continuing Education has partnered with Trilogy Education Services (TES) to develop the UCF Coding Boot Camp. TES is the leading workforce accelerator in the United States and is partnered with more than 35 top universities to support their skills-based learning program efforts. We strive to be transparent about this partnership by noting it on our website and during the admissions process. Both UCF Coding Boot Camp and TES are extremely passionate about enabling student success.

    Our Student Success Managers (SSMs) work hard to ensure every student feels valued and supported throughout every step of the way. On the first day of class, your SSM introduced herself as having been a former graduate of the boot camp, in an attempt to connect with and reassure students of the potential challenges they could encounter in the weeks to come. In addition to the 13 years of experience as a freelance web developer, your SSM also had several contributions to the Open Source community prior to attending the course. We take student feedback seriously and are aware that your SSM continually reviewed all provided feedback, as well as implemented any necessary cohort changes. We understand your SSM did share numbers of recent commitments to the full-stack repo and sincerely hope you found these to be helpful, however, we are constantly working on improving our responsiveness to ensure students are being heard - so we appreciate you sharing this insight.

    We seek to empower our students and foster a real sense of community in a relaxed, yet still respectful and appropriate environment for all, regardless of age or prior experience. During your cohort's second project, our team, including your instructor, noticed a lack of professionalism that was evident in the conversational classroom tone you mentioned. Both your instructor and SSM acknowledged the change in classroom culture, and we can confidently say that while effort was made to make students aware of the need for more professionalism, no demeaning or insulting language was used toward the students. The instructor's sentiment about a lack of professionalism was purely toward the classroom culture and the need to make a change, and not reflective of nor directed at the students personally. We apologize for any miscommunication in this regard. While we are aware of certain industry norms that are prevalent in the workforce, as an institution of higher learning comprised of people of all backgrounds and personalities, we strive for courteous and positive classroom behavior, one that individuals can carry with them into their own job roles. We regret the incident proceeded to this extent, but do believe our team was looking out on behalf of the entire cohort's benefit. We are constantly striving to ensure our students have the necessary support and camaraderie they need to be successful, both during and following the boot camp, so we thank you for this feedback.

    We know the amount of hard work and dedication this immersive course requires and commend you for all your achievements. At this time, we would welcome the opportunity to speak with you directly to learn how else we can support you at this time. If you would like, please reach out to us directly at (407) 454-9823. Congratulations on graduating and we wish you great success going forward!

    The cirriculum of the course was very good. I learned so much throughout this program and was promptly able to apply it to my current job as I went through the course. The support provided in the cource from the instructor to the TAs was exceptional. The carrer services however I felt could've been better and more active during the course.

    Congratulations on completing the course, Monica! We are thrilled you had such a positive experience learning robust web development skills that you were able to apply to your current job role - amazing! We’re happy to hear you enjoyed the curriculum, our instructors, and TAs.

    We designed our current career services around previous feedback we received indicating that students would generally prefer to have their support come later, once they've settled into the rigorous course material. This approach made sense as students would also have had enough experience with their new skills to begin the job search utilizing our career-ready tools. That being said, we also try to integrate our professional development services where possible throughout the program with flexible and optional online events, Project Demo Days, behavioral interview training, technical interview training in the classroom or office hours, and several important milestone training sessions that will build a foundation for establishing an individual's career. This is all part of our career services but based on your feedback, we believe we should be better at explaining how and why we support our students the way we do. We are constantly refining our career services to best position students for success, and feedback like yours helps us to do that. We truly appreciate your review and wish you the best of luck in all your future achievements!

    I'm going to start by saying I don't know how to compare my boot camp to others, since I only attended my own and I haven't taught or assisted any others.​

    I can say I consider it a good experience overall.  The curriculum was well designed and the pace kept enough pressure to keep you from disengaging or slacking.  The staff was well chosen and we had support and encouragement come from a lot of different directions.  We were well supplied with videos and resources to help us.  We did have some glitches with staff change or staff vacations, but those in charge kept us covered with good people all the way through.

    I recently finished the 6-month part-time full stack dev course at the Lake Mary/Sanford campus. The primary question somebody would have (that I had) was "Is this for me?" I will try to answer that with the following use case examples:

    Currently working in software development but not in a technical role: (This is myself since I've been a product manager for 10+ years.) Taking this class has already benefitted me greatly in my day-to-day duties as a product manager. I would recommend it for anyone in a similar role. Understanding what your dev team is doing and is capable of doing and being able to have more productive meetings will make you a better product or project manager. Your skills set will be more desireable in the marketplace. 

    Computer Science Student or recent grad: Definitely worth taking this class. From what I've been told the C.S. degree work is heavy on theory but not so much on coding especially in modern cutting-edge languages. Many of the TAs were computer science students who graduated from the bootcamp. 

    Looking for a career change: Much of the class is comprised of this use case. Definitely take some online tutorials on codecademy and whatever else you can find to see if you even like coding at all. It's probably not anything like you imagined it to be (it wasn't for me at least). If you find that you enjoy the challenge then go for it. 

    I got exactly what I was hoping to get from the UCF coding bootcamp and more. The instruction and support are outstanding. On the admin side Ricky and Jodi are your pillars to lean on so use them. I can't say enough about the high quality of my instructor (Howard Salter) or our TAs. This is crucial: Take advantage of the FREE weekly 1-on-1 tutoring. It's free and it helps to have someone to talk it out with. Even with all the help you will have to do much of the learning on your own; learning how to teach myself new material is the key thing you will learn in this class. At least it was for me.

    Thank you for your review, Jacob! It's great to know our market-based curriculum taught you valuable coding skills that were helpful in your current job role. Like you mentioned, this course is a comprehensive learning experience benefiting individuals across a wide range of proficiency levels, ranging from those who may have more experience to novice self-starters who are seeking a career change.


    Our entire staff is incredibly passionate about education and we couldn't agree more that Ricky, Howard and the whole team are all pretty amazing! We're thrilled you utilized our free tutoring and put in the necessary additional time outside of class learning the course material, as we pride ourselves on teaching students how to problem-solve and self-teach, a key developer skill. Congratulations on graduating and we wish you all the success going forward!

    I attended the UCF Coding Bootcamp from January to July 2017. 

    I came to the bootcamp after 12 years of being a mom and homemaker, and although I was from a technical background, such a long time of being out of touch had made me practically a novice.

    The course work is very challenging but if you are diligent, you can surely be successful. It equips you with a lot of latest technologies, but most importantly it teaches you the skill to learn and grasp new things. It instills that confidence in you.

    My instructors were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. No question was ever left unanswered and they had unending patience. Our TA's were always by our side, helping us when we were stuck, troubleshooting, but most importantly, pointing us in the right direction, enabling us to figure out things by ourselves. They even conducted extra study groups, so that we had all the support we needed.

    I made awesome friends at bootcamp. The work was intense, but there was a team spirit that is so very encouraging. The group projects helped me during my interview process. The group presentations taught me proper techniques to showcase my work. 

    Our Career Director Amber is simply superb. She is very intelligent, patient, perseverant and knowledgeable. She analyses each candidate individually and her suggestions are tailor made accordingly. She was always available when I needed her and always extremely encouraging. Her energy is infectious :)

    Ricky, our student success manager is a great motivator and always ready to help.

    I felt like I was a part of a big family and that they always had my back.

    Immediately after I finished my bootcamp I had to take a 2 month break due to personal reasons. But when I was ready to start looking, the whole team was right there beside me, and I got a job offer within a month.

    One of the best educational experiences of my life and highly recommended !!

    If all you are looking for is a solid base knowledge of full stack development, I have nothing but good things to say for the instructors and TAs of this program. They were all knowledgeable and helpful in every aspect of the course. They were all invested in helping you grow and make you into the best developer you can be. They encouraged you to learn and pushed you further than you thought you could go. A wonderful experience.

    Now for the bad side, if you are looking to get a job right after completing this course then I suggest that you look elsewhere or at start with some free learning on other sites. The career services give you basic tips on pushing your resumes, hokey advice for researching interviewing advice and the majority of career advisors seem to have the wrong personalities for someone whose job it is to get jobs for dozens of people. Anything I have gotten after the course was completely from my own efforts.

    I wish this program could've been everything I wanted it to be but sadly it fell completely flat on the career side and soured the experience of a solidly designed course.

    Took the full-time class starting in May and just finished in August. All I have to say is that it's intense, yet very very rewarding. The full-time curriculum went by rather quickly but Bob, Josh and Justin did an excellent job in explaining key concepts and provided guidance along the course. Bob is a knowledgeable and interactive instructor. He kept us engaged and made seemingly boring information very interesting. Both Josh and Justin did a great job in helping us out with projects, homework assignments, answering questions and explaining information. This course is a lot of work and your success is dependant on your work and your efforts. Give it 110% of effort, ask questions, stay motivated and you'll reap the rewards. Go for it. It's an amazing experience.

    I recently graduated from the UCF full stack coding boot camp in August. This boot camp literally changed my life, I had no coding experience before I attended this camp and was very nervous coming in. Reading the curriculum was very nerve wracking for me as I had no clue what most of these terms and "languages" were. But going in to the first day, my AMAZING instructor Bob and his TAs assured us all that we are in this together and will learn step by step. They make sure nobody gets left behind, but I do want to say one thing about getting the most out of this program. The TAs can only do so much for you, and can not always be right by your side for each assignment and homework. You have to put in the extra time and work outside of class. You can not just go home and start watching tv and forget about programming. You have to go home, do more research and practice, practice, practice. If you do that throughout the camp you will come out as one of the top developers in your class and be fully job ready for the real world. It is not an easy course, but it is not impossible either, it is an amazing opportunity that I would recommend to anybody interested in the tech industry.

    I recently graduated from the UCF Full Stack Coding Bootcamp in Aug. 2017.  I took one programming class in college 15 years prior but never pursued it much after that.  I researched all the different options before signing up and most of the others have gone out of business since then and the reason for that is as follows:  From the first day to the last day we were full steam ahead.  We covered everything associated with full stack development.  Within a couple weeks I knew I was in over my head and asked for help.  The T.A.s, the instructor and even the UCF Coordinator swooped in and got me set up with a tutor who was another student in a different program who was further ahead than us.  This is what made all the difference.  They really did want to see me succeed and help out where they could.  They checked in regularly and helped me focus on what I needed to improve.  I couldn't be happier with the experience and I do think it was worthwhile.  They have a really good partnership with the university and plenty of people rooting for your success.  Now its up to me to put it work.  In terms of what this bootcamp can offer - they go over everything from HTML, CSS, JavaScript, NodeJS, React, PHP, MySQL, MongoDB, and a few others.  If I could recommend one thing it would be to come in humble and ready to learn because the amount of information can be very overwhelming but with a little effort and asking for help this could really change your life for the better.  Put in the time and use every resource they offer.

    I recently graduated from the UCF Coding Boot Camp in August 2017. I came to the course expecting to learn new skills and to meet other excited software developers. The Boot Camp exceeded my expectations in every way. Bob, Justin, and Josh are all very knowledgeable and extremely motivated to help students engage with the material. Would recommend to anyone seeking to pivot to a new career.
