    I signed up for the bootcamp after reviewing several other options. My goal in the bootcamp was to enhance my data analytics skills and combine this with my extensive HR career. Overall the course was extremely challenging and with the amount of material that is covered in 24 weeks, it can be daunting. With that speed, the course isn't going to go deep with some of the more advanced material, but the core material like Python is well covered. One thing I liked about the course was how it builds upon the previous weeks. I found most of the homework helpful to learn and apply some of the concepts (VBA, data manipulation and visualizations) in my day job so that was a huge plus. Be prepared to spend 10-20 hours outside of class on homework and the projects in order to finish them, this course reminded me a lot of grad school in that regard. Overall the instructors were extremely knowledgable and willing to help. One area I had challenges with is career services. As someone who is not starting a brand new career, but looking to blend my current career with data, career services tended to give advice more suited to someone who is looking to ignore their current experience and force you to focus on "being someone new." Just my observation, but I am continuing to work with them in becoming their version of "employer-ready".

    Amazing, Jeff! Like you noted, this is a rigorous and fast-paced program that covers a wide range of knowledge in a limited amount of time. Each of our sessions is designed to build upon the last and you will have to dedicate extensive time both inside and outside of the classroom in order to truly master the material. We're glad to hear you enjoyed the homework and found our instructional team to be supportive. We're always working to optimize our boot camp offerings, so we appreciate your feedback regarding career services. Congratulations on graduating, we truly appreciate your review! Best of luck moving forward.

    The digital marketing boot camp was a great experience. It involves a great deal of time commitment but with the curriculum, it should be for 18 weeks! In the end, I have learned so much and will be much more valuable in the digital marketing world. The instructor/TA's are committed to help guide you through difficulties and even make time outside of class to respond to questions/concerns. I have 2 little boys and life is busy but I managed to make it happen! You can too!

    I have to start by saying that this program exceeded any expectations I had. Initially, I had my reservations before starting because there are many programs out there that promote similar skills but don't deliver. At UNC-Bootcamp, I learned things I wanted to learn and then I learned more technologies that I've heard about, but never ventured to work with. The instructors are AMAZING!! They are knowledgeable and it is amazing how much their skills, knowledge and experience helped me understand things that I have struggled for a while trying learn them by myself. The curriculum is well thought and it is design to make you successful and competitive in the real world. I most certainly be forever grateful with the people and the technology I learned.

    I graduated with a BS in animal sciences in 2016. After my graduation, I worked for a few years in food service and restaurant management before I was finally able to secure a job as a veterinary assistant. I’ve always loved animals and animal husbandry, and I really believed pursuing a veterinary career was for me. In reality, while I still love veterinary science, I’ve come to find veterinary jobs do not afford much opportunity for creativity or continued learning.

    While struggling under the realization that my dream job was maybe not really so dreamy, I found myself devoting more time to my long-time hobby, video game modding. As a few of my mods became popular within small internet communities, I found myself spending more and more time teaching myself game-specific coding languages and collaborating with other modders-- and eventually I had to ask myself, why am I only doing this as a hobby?

    I applied to the UNC Coding Boot Camp because I knew of past students (friends of friends) who had gone through the program and really thrived with it. The things that really attracted me to this particular boot camp were a) its affiliation with a major university in my area, b) the variety of financial plans available to make the program affordable, and c) its emphasis on teaching students to “learn to learn” and career assistance.

    I am at the halfway point of the UNC Boot Camp program and I am really enjoying it. The Boot Camp is the first academic program whose pace has felt appropriate for how I learn. I am not trying to brag: I struggled in high school and my undergraduate program with paying attention in many lectures because of repetitive review lessons, which meant I sometimes missed new material.

    The session I am enrolled in currently is virtual, which I really prefer since I am still working full-time as a veterinary assistant. Despite classes being held online, I feel like the instructional staff has done a great job in encouraging a friendly learning environment. The class has a Slack channel and students readily share resources and homework help there. I feel like I know some of my classmates in the Boot Camp better than I did classmates in my 4-year, in-person undergraduate program.

    Unfortunately at this point I cannot offer a review of the career services aspect of the Boot Camp. I have had a number of personal challenges during the course (health issues and an unplanned move due to septic failure), and my student success manager has told me to focus on the program’s academics for the time being. My SSM and instructional staff have been really understanding and supportive! That said, getting to this point in the program has required a huge (but I feel worthwhile) investment of time and work on my part. Depending on the week, homework assignments alone have taken me 10-30 hours, in addition to the 10 standing lecture hours. I am really proud of the homework I’ve submitted and will likely use some of them in a future portfolio, but it was really an adjustment for me to make sure I was setting enough time aside each week to work on the homework.

    I am looking forward to the remainder of the program and hope this review is helpful to others!

    The UNC data analytics bootcamp was really challenging and required a lot of hard work and diligence. Yet, the experience was positive and worthwhile because the instructor and teaching assistants were dedicated to us learning the concepts, solving the challenges we encountered and applying the knowledge we gained in a meaningful manner. In addition, the bootcamp administrators continuously provided us with the resources we needed to continue building on the material that was presented to us at a fast pace. Overall, it was a great experience and I feel well-equipped for my next career steps.

    It's a six-month program that takes 10 hours of in-class time and 20-40+ hours outside of class. You do not need to know anything about programming to succeed in this bootcmap. I was skeptical about this before enrolling. I can now say this is true after finishing the program. Putting in the hours and being determined to finish every homework/project is all you need. However, the more you know before the further you can push yourself during the program. The instructors, teaching assistants, tutors, career services staff, and administrative staff are supportive throughout. They went the extra mile to help you succeed even if your project went outside the normal scope of the program. I have been teaching in higher education for over a decade and this program has my full endorsement in terms of pedagogical practices, curriculum, and the dedication of the teaching staff.

    Disclaimer: I graduated right as the pandemic hit.

    The bootcamp is about as hard as you make it for yourself. In a class of 28, about 3 people dropped out and maybe 1 or 2 people failed. Even though the projects were really hard to get an A on, getting a passing C- was, in my opinion, too easy. Everyone who passes the course is going to have big gaps in their knowledge, but this is the kind of job where you have to keep learning anyway. They can't possibly teach you everything for every job. 

    Some of the material taught is more useful than others. While I thought the machine learning stuff was super cool, I've never heard of anyone that has gotten a job in Machine Learning with just a data analytics certificate. By the time I graduated, I had forgotten a lot of SQL and VBA but that's what I spend all my time on at work! Also, I didn't take the, "visualization" part of the course very seriously since I only cared about getting the right numbers but making the data look nice is actually super important.

    The job assistance afterwards was great, but again, you have to put in the work because they aren't applying to jobs for you. My career counselor alone was probably worth a huge chunk of $11,000 I paid for the course. I know a few people that passed the course, but almost a year and a half later don't have data analytics jobs and I can tell just by looking at their Linkedin profiles and Githubs that they haven't been listening to their career counselors. 

    I got an entry level job as a Data Analyst and while it doesn't pay nearly as well as I hoped, I'm a career switcher and this is the kind of job I was looking for. I'm glad to have a steady, work from home job during the pandemic. I don't know what percent of people that passed the class are actual Data Analysts now but it definitely took me around 6 months to get my job, so don't quit your dayjob.

    If you have no programming experience, haven't been to school for many years, and struggle even with basic algebra, I highly recommend you brush up for free on Khan Academy first.

    We understand you would have liked to spend more time focusing on previously covered technologies like SQL and VBA. We are constantly working on optimizing our curriculum to ensure students are learning the most valuable technologies, so we truly appreciate you sharing this feedback.

    Like you noted, our professional development services are built on the principle of empowerment. We know job seeking can be difficult—as such we're thrilled to hear you benefited from the ongoing help of our career services team.

    After a lot of research and comparing different programs, I enrolled in the Data Analytics Bootcamp at UNC. It was an amazing experience and I can't believe how much I learned in such a short period of time. For anyone who is thinking about taking this course: it's not going to be easy. It's extremely fast-paced and 10 hours of class + weekly homework assignments require you to spend at least 15 hours per week on it, but there were weeks I spent 25-30 hours on some very challenging assignments. That being said, I've done it all in addition to a full-time job and it all worked out.

    The other thing that is absolutely great about this course is Career Services. If you're looking for a job, this course truly helps you find one. If you're willing to relocate, there's a very high chance you'll find a job shortly after the bootcamp with one of the companies in their network. I didn't want to do that, but they still helped me a lot. They provide one-on-one sessions with a career advisor, resume reviews, help with writing cover letters, etc. I want to mention Robin Pajot in particular, who has done bi-weekly 30-minute sessions with me for over 3 months. She's was absolutely fabulous and really helped me getting more confident and more competitive. She went above and beyond to help me with my career.

    I highly recommend this course to anyone who's interested in getting skills in data analytics and programming and/or who's looking to find a job in data science or other industries.

    I have spent the last 6 months with such a great group of teachers, TAs, Tutors, and Career Services people that have helped me successfully graduate from this Full Stack Web Development program. I have felt supported by my teacher/TAs (Austin, Tom, Brendan) and my tutor (Maria) was absolutely AMAZING. My career services/leadership support has been and continues to be amazing as well (Thank you Robin, and Lisa). 

    I did not have any coding experience but really wanted to do something different and learn skills that were very in demand. Compared to other bootcamps, this one is a reasonable price point and you get what you pay for (exceptional teachers/support). It was really difficult and frustrating at times but overall I highly recommend this to anyone that wants to learn how to code/ get a job in coding.
