    Full Stack Coding Boot Camp

    As a former project manager and data practitioner who was around highly technical people, I developed a strong interest in better understanding and sharpening my technical skills to be a  more active member with a stronger say in the building process of the product. 
    Hence, I decided to join the UCLA Full Stack Coding Boot Camp. I looked into many options before making my decision and selected UCLA because I was looking for a good curriculum, strong academic supp...

    Do NOT take this course...Do NOT make the same mistakes I made.

    Trilogy people are EXTREMELY helpful, always there to help you  - literally calling you two, three times a day to ask if you made your decision and if you were ready to pay for a deposit...Always helpful until you pay for the class and no longer can get your refund.

    We are promised TAs who will be avaiable to help...they were not. I was in the Tue/Thu class and we were not lucky with our "help." Meanwhile M...

    Thank you for sharing your experience, Viana-Stine. Our entire team is passionate about enabling student success, so we regret to hear that your boot camp experience did not live up to your expectations.

    Like you noted, UCLA Extension has partnered with Trilogy Education Services (TES) to offer The Coding Boot Camp at UCLA Extension. UCLA Extension 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 UCLA Extension and TES are truly dedicated to transforming students' lives and aim to be fully transparent about this relationship throughout the admissions process and course.

    We have a multi-step admissions process to ensure that students are set up for success. During this time, we encourage participants to ask any and all relevant questions. Our enrollment agreement and admissions process do strive to make the refund policy for the program clear, noting that refunds are not possible after the drop period ends. We understand that you were unhappy with these policies and regret any inconvenience it may have caused.

    Throughout our courses, we monitor instructor performance and analyze levels of engagement in the classroom, providing feedback to help them further develop their teaching skills. We understand that instructors and learners are not always a perfect match, but we do take any raised concerns extremely seriously. Our instructors and teaching assistants work to facilitate a productive and collaborative environment for all participants throughout the entirety of the course. We sincerely regret that you felt your instructional team did not provide satisfactory support and never want any of our learners to feel discouraged from continuing their work in our boot camp and beyond.

    We sincerely care about all our students and would welcome the opportunity to further discuss how else we can support you at this time and help meet your expectations. If you would like, please reach out to us directly at (310) 955-4093.

    It didn't work for me i hope works for you

    I took this course from January to July 2017, the instructor was Omar Patel. At the time I was working as a retail manager and thinking to change my career. I thought this is a good chance to learn how to write to code, and chance to get an entry-level job on the tech field. It starts well they send us a homework package for the start I believe I did the ok job since I never write code before, then it started to be more complicated as expected. My problem with the course they only did 10% ...

    Thank you for your review, Kevin. We're happy that you enjoyed the initial content of the course but regret to hear the overall program did not live up to your expectations.

    Like you noted, UCLA Extension has partnered with Trilogy Education Services (TES) to offer the UCLA Extension Coding Boot Camp. UCLA Extension 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 UCLA Extension and TES are truly dedicated to transforming students' lives and aim to be fully transparent about this relationship throughout the admissions process and course.

    We vet our instructors carefully, hiring practitioners with a minimum of three years of experience in the field in lieu of traditional professors in order to simulate real-life working environments. Throughout our course, we analyze both their performance and levels of engagement in the classroom, providing feedback to help them further develop their teaching skills. Each instructor works to facilitate a productive and collaborative environment for all participants throughout the entirety of the course, however, we understand not all teaching styles will resonate with all students.

    We serve a mix of individuals ranging from beginners to professionals, and many of our learners do enter the boot camp with no prior experience. Due to the challenging nature of the course, we strive to provide additional assistance through free tutoring, office hours with instructors and TAs, optional one-on-one sessions, supplemental resources, and more. We strive to respond quickly to any concerns and conduct weekly surveys and office hour sessions to provide a voice for all of our students. We sincerely regret that you felt your instructor and TAs did not provide satisfactory support and never want any of our learners to feel discouraged from continuing their work in our boot camp and beyond.

    We would love to speak with you personally to see if there is anything else we can do at this time to reinforce your learning or support your job search through career services. If you would like, please call (310) 955-4093.

    The course material is very interesting and the way the class is structured is pretty good, it takes your hand with baby steps even if you have no background about coding or engineering. The instructor "Omar in my case" stressed about the concepts way more than the technology used which is very helpful as you can venture in any language you want on your own.

    I would extend the period where we learned ES6 and React but either than that I think the course's pace was pretty good for...

    Full Stack Web Developers Coding Bootcamp

    I debated whether to attend the UCLA Coding bootcamp for 2 years before finally pulling the trigger and attending. As a UCLA alumn with a B.A. in Psychology and a 14 year background as a web designer and Wordpress Developer (non-coding), I figured that the bootcamp would be a natural evolution of my skills and would give me a better understanding of development and the further ability to create more meaningful and useful applications.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to leave this detailed review, David! We know this is a challenging program and it takes hard work to balance the curriculum, so we commend you for your dedication and commitment to learning the fundamentals of full-stack web development.

    Like you mentioned, it's important to complete the pre-work before the first day of class.

Our instructors are truly passionate about what they do, so we're thrilled you found them to not only be knowledgeable but great support systems.

    We truly appreciate you choosing our boot camp to make a career transition and have to agree that being motivated, detail-oriented and patient will take you far in the field. Congratulations on graduating, we truly love hearing from our students! We wish you great success and are excited to see what you will continue to accomplish.

    Great Program for Determined Students

    I took the part-time bootcamp online. I think the remote aspect of it made completion more difficult for many of my peers, as a majority of the original students did not finish the program. 

    If you're taking the program part-time alongside a full-time job, it can be incredibly challenging to balance work, personal life and the program's demands. This program takes a lot of support and understanding from family and significant others to see through completion.

    Intense & Supportive!

    The UCLA Coding Bootcamp provides an in-depth introduction into all the lanuages and tools you will need to pursue web development. If you are someone who needs to hear information, interact with educators and have structure to jump start your learning I highly recommend this course. Please note that the course is very classroom, homework and project based (no testing). This is beneficial because it will prepare you for the inevitable collaborative, team-intensive professional environment ...

    Full Stack Flex Program - Good experience in class.

    The class was great. There were times where I felt the class was moving way too fast - but for the most part it moved at a steady enough pace. I learned quickly not to dwell on a topic for too long if I wasn't fully grasping it to avoid falling behind on new/current topics.

    One negative thing I felt is that some students tended to hog TA Help time and/or questions/answers during class which made it difficult to get a word in sometimes. Also some of the conversations between stude...

    How I became a Web Dev

    When I first decided to look for a class to sign up for, I didn't have a good idea as to what I actually wanted to do. I did some research and found UCLA coding bootcamp. After some debating, I signed up and never looked back. After the first week, I already learned a lot more than I ever knew before. As class went on, everyday brought more challenges with lots of help that was just a question away. We would jump from one activitey to then next. If there was ever something that I didn't un...

    Highly Recommended (Full Stack Web Development - Full Time)

    Prior to choosing a program, I researched a number of options. What gravitated me towards choosing this one was both the price point, as well as the content of the curriculum. For a much lower price compared to other bootcamps, in this course you learn tools and technologies both for front-end as well as back-end development. Not only that, although the full-time course is much more rigorous and you have less time to digest the material, working through solving problems with others and mak...

    In hindsight, I'd choose this program again

    In 2017, I was married with three children, and expecting another in April. I commuted from the easternmost part of Los Angeles County to UCLA in order to do the part-time Full Stack program in the evenings. I attended on Monday and Wednesday evenings and on Saturday mornings into the afternoon. 

    Before making the choice to attend The Coding Bootcamp at UCLA Extension, I considered a few other bootcamps by visiting, interviewing, or researching them.
