Congratulations on accepting your first position as a Jr. PHP Developer, Jacob!  We hope you're proud of all of the hard work you put into the program, and we're excited to hear that you're already jumping into your new career.

We constantly review and update our processes to ensure that we are offering our students a streamlined and first-rate educational experience, from admissions to graduation.  Hearing feedback like this makes all of our efforts worthwhile!  You've mentioned some of the most important aspects of this program for future students to know.  The group projects and collaborative atmosphere expose students to the type of environment that they can expect in a new career as a web developer, and we're constantly updating our curriculum to ensure that students are learning the most relevant market skills.

It is fantastic to hear that our instructors and TAs are providing our students with the support they need to firmly grasp the course material, and that our Career Services team is succeeding in helping our students navigate today's complicated job market.  We really appreciate your feedback and wish you the best of luck moving forward!

Hi Ali,

Thank you so much for your feedback, and congratulations on graduating! You’re right that this is a challenging program that requires many hours of study and practice outside of the classroom. We know it takes real commitment to balance life and the intensive pace of the program, so we’re proud of all the hard work you’ve done!

In order to assist students who are struggling with the coursework, our instructors and TAs are always available during class and through various channels like in-person and virtual office hours, email, Slack, and phone, to provide extra support in any way they can. It’s wonderful to hear that you found the instructional and student success teams to be skilled and helpful! We think they are pretty great, too.

We’re sorry to hear that your experience with our career services team during the course did not meet your expectations due to the promotion of your original career director. After his promotion, the career director did step back in to give additional assistance along with the CD from another campus, providing six guest speakers, two online career coaching sessions, three in-class sessions, and one company tour. 

We are happy that you had a better experience with the post-graduation career services and hope that you are now receiving all of the support you need to bolster your success. If there is anything else we can help you with to this end, please don’t hesitate to contact us at (407) 454-9823.

Way to go, Michael! Getting to see students grow throughout the course and go on to learn more than they ever thought possible is why we do what we do. You are so right that you’ll only get out what you put in—our team is there to support you along the way, but this is a fast paced, demanding program that takes long hours and dedication. Congratulations on all your hard work! You should be very proud of your accomplishment. We wish you great success going forward.

Hi Edwin,

Thank you for sharing your feedback. We know how challenging it can be to learn a new skill and we take your feedback very seriously. We’re sorry that you felt frustrated during your experience with our program. As this is a boot camp, the curriculum is fast-paced and designed to cover multiple concepts in an abbreviated time period. 

Many of our students do enter the program with no prior experience in programming, and this is why we provide in-depth pre-course assignments to help get students up to speed. In order to further assist students that are struggling with the coursework, instructors hold in-person and virtual office hours, and are also available via email, Slack, and phone. Our tutor network is also available for additional one-on-one help at no cost. 

Throughout our courses, we analyze instructor performance and their levels of engagement in the classroom, providing feedback to help them develop into the best instructors they can be. We vet our instructors carefully, hiring practitioners with a minimum of five years of experience in the field in lieu of traditional professors in order to simulate real-life working environments. 

We understand that instructors and students are not always a perfect match, but we do take any concerns raised very seriously. Our instructors work to facilitate a productive and collaborative environment for our students and are cognizant of their students’ progress throughout the course. We sincerely regret that you felt your instructor did not provide satisfactory support and understanding of your frustration. We never want any of our students to feel discouraged from continuing their work in our program and beyond.

After you expressed concerns about your instructor one month into the program, we did work to accommodate your request by switching you into another instructor’s class. We regret that you decided to stop attending classes a few weeks after making the switch. We last spoke on September 14 and we let you know that our team was available should you need anything else, and that still holds true. 

We would love to discuss your experience further and would appreciate the opportunity to provide any support that we can at this time to help bolster your success moving forward. You can reach me directly at (407) 454 - 9823.

Hi Randy, thank you for sharing your feedback. We are disappointed to hear about your experience.
 
Our program serves a mix of students ranging from those with zero coding experience to computer science students as well as graduates of other boot camps. For this reason, we begin by covering the basics, giving students a solid foundation upon which they will build throughout the program. We start slow and the intensity of our program ramps up to advanced topics very quickly. A key reason our students are successful is because we have a proven methodology for becoming a professional. Each lesson iteratively builds on the last, and there are no shortcuts to focusing on the basics at first.
 
During your one-on-one session on February 16 (week 2 of the program), we discussed your concerns over the curriculum and its pace. We explained this methodology and how the pace would ramp up quickly. You began classes with us on February 7 and your last day of attending class was March 2. Unfortunately, only experiencing the first four weeks of our 24-week program is not enough to see firsthand how rigorous and in-depth our program becomes once the fundamentals are covered—around week 6 and beyond.
 
In our March 2 discussion, we talked about the withdrawal and refund policy – noting that students would still be responsible for the remaining tuition and would continue to have access to GitHub, Slack, and the classroom as an “active non-participatory” student. On March 8, we spoke again and you confirmed that you were no longer going to attend and wanted to withdraw entirely.
 
While our program has an intensive vetting process and requires a minimum of five years’ experience in the field, we continue to monitor instructors to ensure that students are getting the best learning experience possible. We hire active practitioners in lieu of formal professors to best simulate real-life working environments. Still, we understand that not all instructors will meet our expectations or those of all students. In the case of your cohort, the instructor left the program and was replaced by a senior-level TA. Our chief curriculum engineer flew to your classroom to observe the replacement instructor on March 2 and validate that he was qualified and prepared. The feedback we received from the majority of the class was very positive throughout the rest of the program.
 
Finally, our curriculum is updated frequently to ensure that it is competitive and that we are covering the latest market demands in the region. However, minor errors can happen and some of the digital materials did show the previous year. We are confident that it did not impact the quality of our curriculum or its delivery to the students.
 
Our team takes feedback seriously and always uses it as a means for improvement. We sincerely wish you would have joined us throughout the duration of the program, allowing you to dive into the complex topics and experience the curriculum that we are immensely proud of. You are encouraged to contact me directly at (954) 900-6057 to discuss your experience further.
