    Enrolling in this boot camp was definitely one of the best decisions that I have made. Before I joined this boot camp I had been trying to learn web development on my own for a few years without much success. The problem was that I didn't know where to start or what I should focus on.

     

    The curriculum is really well structured, and focuses on gradually developing the skills you need as you become more proficient with the technologies that are being taught. There is definitely a lot of material, but it is manageable because you use many of the same technologies again and again and reinforce your understanding until it becomes second nature.

     

    I can confidently say that I have learned 100 times more from the 6 months in this course than my failed attempts of learning on my own. This course was definitely the jump start that I needed to enter a career in the tech industry and connect with people with the same mindset.

     

    Lastly, the support that I received since day one was amazing. Ricky from admissions was very supportive throughout the program. The Teaching Staff and the career director we're very knowledgable as well and were the key to turning my professional ambitions into a reality.

    I am a recent graduate of this program and I must say it was a fantastic experience all the way around! The coursework is well structured with clearly defined benchmarks and the curriculum is layed out such that you get a chance to learn the theory, see the code, and then apply that knowledge during hands on coding exercises. When I came into the program I had little to no knowledge of programming and had minimal experience with html and css. In 6 short months I learned the full stack and was able to successfully apply the concepts and knowledge in my final project. In addition to the instruction, the support staff including the teachers assistants, program coordinator, and career director are all easily accessible and are there to provide guidance and support to help you achieve your goals.  I had several offers of employment upon graduation and made a huge leap ahead in my career. I highly recommend this program to all!

    I enrolled in the inaugural class of the UCF Boot Camp. It has been the best school experience that I have ever had. I am very proud of what I have accomplished in this boot camp, but I would not have been able to do it in this short of a time without the support of my teachers, TA's and support staff. This boot camp is not easy, but it does give you everything that you need to get a great start to a career as a Full Stack developer. UCF has hired the best developers to teach this class, they have an amazing curriculum and they give you the tools that you need to succeed. Any time that you have a question, you can either ask it on Slack or you can meet with the TA's before or after class to get it figured out. 

    The development of the curriculum is really top notch, they have it down to a science, this is what you need to know in order to get a job as a developer today. Of course you don't learn everything that there is to know, this is a 6 month course after all, but once you get through it, you will know where to find the answers and how to it out on your own. 

    All of the staff have so much enthusiasm and help you get through and to realize how much you have accomplished. Throughout the boot camp you will develop applications that you can use for your portfolio, you will work in teams and on your own making applications that will look amazing and then the Career Director will work with you one on one to help you make a plan for your next step and build a resume, enhance your linkedin and how to really show off your portfolio. 

    The best advice I have for future students in this boot camp is to use all of the services that they provide, you have paid for, use the 1-on-1's with the TA's for help understanding concepts, show up early and work with your fellow students. This boot camp may seem like it will take a long time, but trust me, time flies and you will be graduating before you know it.

    I joined this course due to my background in analytics. The job market wanted me to know a few variations of the 10 offered in this course. I was excited to jump in and had high hopes.

    The first two weeks are lovely. There is a great lecture on data science and the world of data, you learn things you never knew about excel (even for the advanced excel folk like me), and then into VBA. That is the place in the curriculum where you have to make the choice whether or not to withdraw from the class or not for your refund. That is where the first red flag was for me. I made it clear I had zero experience with development and coding during my phone interview, and I was told that was fine. This is not fine. This is not a course for someone who has zero experience with either. After that withdraw period, you learn things that are nothing like excel or VBA, and I felt I wasn't given a fair preview of what I would be learning the rest of that course.

    There was not any communication prior to class on the structure of the course. We have class 3x a week for 3 hours, plus an assignment due weekly. Each assignment took me roughly 8-10 hours to do. That doesn't include the time I reviewed class material, (which was needed due to the fast pace of class), time with the tutor, or the time I spent practicing on my own. When I broke it down, I dedicated 40-50 hours a week to this boot camp, I was only told that 3 classes a week and 15 hours were "on average" required (which would have been 30 hours). 

    The TA's and instructors are SO INCREDIBLY HELPFUL. Willing to help with anything. However, with the help, a tutor, and dedicating all extra hours to outside course work, I still was struggling. With all that said, I cannot even begin to tell you how many times in class we were told to google code, google how to fix things, or google troubleshooting.

    Up until the very end, many students I spoke with after class regretted signing up and it was not as advertised. Wishing they would have learned it on their own. 

    In the end, I dropped this course. I felt as if I could have learned all of this in one year, via independent study with Google and Youtube, create a polished GitHub portfolio, and secure a data job without a certificate. This was even suggested during my research of this Bootcamp, and I should have listened. Most job requirements in this field do not require the certificate, just that you have knowledge or can show you have that skill.

    Thank you for taking the time to leave us your review. We're happy to hear you enjoyed the initial portion of the program and found our instructional team to be helpful, but we regret that the overall course material and pace were not what you were expecting.

    Our boot camp serves a mix of individuals ranging from beginners to professionals, and many of our learners do enter the boot camp with no prior experience in certain topics. We cover a great deal of material in a limited amount of time and understand that this is a challenging and rigorous course, true to its boot camp name. As such we do our best to communicate to prospective applicants and students alike the level of dedication and time commitment required, with successful students spending a minimum of 20-30 hours or more per week outside of the classroom on projects and additional learning (depending on each person's proficiency). From your review, we understand that you felt you were not fully aware of the time commitment and rigor.

    Like you mentioned, the curriculum is introduced at a higher level in-class and individuals are expected to continue building on that knowledge outside of class. As the curriculum progresses, we've found this methodology to be useful and seen that students not only become increasingly confident in their knowledge but also gain essential problem-solving and self-teaching skills—two essential qualities necessary in any real-world role. We're glad you were able to utilize our available student support resources, including in-person/virtual office hours and 1:1 tutoring.

    We sincerely regret you did not move forward with the course and would like the opportunity to personally speak with you in order to determine what additional support we can provide you with at this time. If you would like, please reach out to us directly at (407) 454-9823.

    The more there is a mixture between good and bad reviews the more you can verify they are not fabricated and genuine. Now I don’t necessarily want to say my review is one star but I had to catch people’s attention who wanted to apply to this program like me.I figured I’d write this review out of concern from a red flag recieved. First off, I want to say I can start a company called Starbucks sucks ass that serves coffee and can legally get away with that.My family got in contact with the associate dean of ucf. The dean said that he’s never heard of ucf coding boot camp. So just keep that in mind people. At first Joel from the data camp made me interested. But there was a lot of questions not exactly answered. I then talked to Susan h(won’t mention last name for privacy ). After talking with her the way she pitched it made it sound like a for profit useless degree like full sail, a college I attended. Their career service department sounds like it doesn’t have connections and uses google to find leads that you can find on your own. I am in a crossroads between this and finishing my second 4 year. Sorry for the bad review but just putting out my 2 cents. I can graduate from ucf with my comp sci major and start a start up like this company. I can slightly alter the name from the college and allude people that it’s assocated with ucf.

    Thank you for your feedback. Like you noted, the UCF Division of Continuing Education has partnered with Trilogy Education Services (TES) to offer the UCF Coding Boot Camp. UCF is deeply involved in the curriculum, instructor selection, and outcomes of each of our classes, and routinely meet in conjunction with TES to monitor the learning experience and performance. Both UCF and TES are completely dedicated to transforming students' lives and aim to be fully transparent about this relationship throughout the admissions process and course.

    Our admissions advisors strive to provide a comprehensive application process, beginning with an initial phone interview, followed by a timed, academic test and final critical thinking interview. During this time, we encourage interested participants to ask any and all relevant questions. We're continually optimizing our program experience, so we appreciate your insight.

    While we do not secure direct employment for our students, our career services are built on the principle of empowerment and provide more than 75 hours of professional development, consisting of resume and portfolio reviews, virtual tech panels, technical interview training, and 1:1 meetings with their Career Director. 

    We continually strive to make sure participants feel supported every step of the way. We would love to speak to you personally to see if there is anything else we can do at this time. If you would like, please reach out to us at (407) 454-9823.
