- Review of The Coding Boot Camp at UNC-Chapel Hill- 11/13/2018Sheila Ward • Course: Full Stack Flex - Part-Time • Campus: Chapel Hill • Verified via LinkedIn
I attended The Coding Boot Camp at UNC-Chapel Hill beginning May 2018 and ending Nov 2018. I enjoyed this experience tremendously; however to me it was very tough. I had been a programmer for 20 years, but then got laid off and knew that I needed some extra training on newer technologies for the future. I did the "Full Stack Developer" track. My recommendation is that if you pick up on things very fast, this will go well for you. If you have a background coding in IT, that will help. I struggled because I'm a "smart" normal person (not a genius), and I needed a little more time working with the technologies in order to get good at them. But of course, we only had 6 months. The instructor was very nice and very knowledgeable about everything. He did speak with an accent, but it was not too difficult to understand (he is from Turkey). I thought the price was very reasonable compared with some I had checked into. But if you decide to do this, make sure that you GET A TUTOR, especially for the back-end. You will probably need it. I spent as much time and more than a full-time job doing this. The frustration was when I got stuck on something and needed help. Usually the TAs will help out before, during, and after class, but on slack it was hard to find someone who could help. And I lived over an hour away.
Response From: Boot Camp Team of UNC-Chapel Hill Boot CampsTitle: Community TeamWednesday, Nov 14 2018Thank you for your review, Sheila! We're so glad you enjoyed your student experience and received continual support from our instructional team. Like you mentioned, this is a challenging, fast-paced program that covers an extensive amount of course material, requiring students to devote additional time outside the classroom. We commend you for your hard work and for tapping into all of the resources available to you. We understand that getting prompt assistance via Slack isn't always possible, but you've provided great advice for future students to take advantage of our free tutor network, TA assistance, and office hours. Congratulations on graduating, we are rooting you on as you move forward!
- Boot Camp at UNC is AWESOME!- 6/1/2018Anonymous • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Flex • Campus: Chapel Hill • Verified via LinkedIn
Overall, WOW! What an experience. I literally changed my life! Trilogy has been awesome and everyone in the process is so supportive. You NEED TO PUT THE WORK IN! This course is FAST, HARD, INTENSE, and IN DEPTH! But, if you are willing to put the hours in every single week (30 - 40+) you will succeed and be on the way to new levels of personal and career success and opportunity. I just finished the boot camp and would totally do it again! In fact, I loved it so much I begin TA'ing for the program next week! If you want to take a chance at a better life and want to push yourself to put the work in and learn the technologies presented in class the decision to take the boot camp is a no brainer!
Response From: Lisa Shemancik of UNC-Chapel Hill Boot CampsTitle: Student Success ManagerFriday, Jun 01 2018Way to go, Anonymous! This program is definitely challenging, fast-paced and in-depth, but like you noted, if you are willing to put in the additional hours of hard work and practice, you will be able to succeed! We commend you for your dedication and long hours of study. Congratulations on graduating and thank you for returning to TA for us! Best of luck in all your future endeavors.
- Fantastic Experience- 5/25/2018Amy • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Flex • Campus: Chapel Hill • Verified via GitHub
I just graduated from the UNC Coding Bootcamp about a week ago and it's one of the best things I've ever done for myself. The class was HARD, no joke, when they tell you the pace is fast, believe them...it's FAST!
However, if you hold on for the ride and just embrace it, you will come out at the end with a huge foundation of knowledge. I've talked to several developer friends who are very impressed with the material I've learned (the volume and also the fact that the material is actually relevant and currently in high demand within the industry).
My instructor was great...personable, knowledgable, funny, easy to talk to, he was always available to answer questions or re-explain a concept. He really made the class fun...I always looked forward to it. Plus, we had two TA's in our class, and I had a personal tutor I met with on Zoom every week (included in the program). I also really loved the connections I made with my fellow students, we bonded quickly and were always helping each other out as well. Plenty of resources were made available when we needed extra help.
I am not yet an expert (I had zero experience with web dev when I started), but I have a really solid foundation now. There are concepts I need to review again, I need to keep learning, but there's A LOT that I know how to do and that feels amazing!
This experience will be what you make of it...you will need to put in a lot of work outside of class time. Everyone is different, but I would have had a very difficult time keeping up with class if I had been working full time. Do yourself a favor and get a head start with webistes like W3Schools.com and freecodecamp.org...especially if you're a newbie. That is something I wish I would have done, it would have really helped to atleast be familiar with terms and concepts before day one.
The only not great experience for me was career services...but again, this is what you make of it. We never got a chance to meet the career people in person and that doesn't work with my personality. I felt they were removed and not really a part of the whole experience. Because of this, I didn't participate fully in this aspect of the class. I'm sure if I had tried harder, I would have gotten more out of it...but I just never felt a connection with those folks, so it wasn't all that helpful to me.
Overall, I am 100% glad I took this class, zero regrets. I have gained SO much knowledge, met so many great people and I know that I have the skills I need to get a job I love and earn a great living!
Response From: Lisa Shemancik of UNC-Chapel Hill Boot CampsTitle: Student Success ManagerWednesday, May 30 2018Congratulations on graduating, Amy!

- A true full stack education- 5/22/2018Joshua Bohde • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Flex • Campus: Chapel Hill • Verified via LinkedIn
The Coding Boot Camp at UNC-Chapel Hill is an excellent program to cultivate the skills needed to become a full stack web developer. Entering the program with no prior coding experience, as I did, can be challenging. But, the program offers many different elements to assist you, including a throrough curriculum with engaging instructors, accessible teacher assistants, helpful one on one tutoring and approachable student success and career services to help transition you into your new career. It is a very supportive environment, that if you bring the passion and dedication to learn will help you flourish.

- Learning the Full Stack- 5/8/2018Philippe Dixon • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Flex - Part-Time • Campus: Raleigh • Verified via LinkedIn
I came into this program with only a small amout of prior programming experience. And that mostly came from online courses and sites learning on my own. After a lot of research into other programs in the area I settled on the UNC boot camp and I'm glad to say I'm not disappointed. I began the course barely able to put up a simple web page and left writing and deploying stand alone web applications complete with server code and a database. It's a thorough curriculum that will not only make you competent in full stack web development but also give you the tools to continue to grow and learn new technologies that arrive in the ever changing world of software development.
Response From: Lisa Shemancik of UNC-Chapel Hill Boot CampsTitle: Student Success ManagerThursday, May 10 2018Congratulations on completing the program, Philippe! We really appreciate you taking the time to leave a review, it was a pleasure to have you in our course. We’re thrilled to hear you had such a positive experience, as it’s our goal to provide a comprehensive learning experience for all of our students, ranging from those individuals who may have more experience to novice self-starters. This is an immersive and challenging course, so we commend you for all of the long hours and hard work you put in - it definitely paid off. We wish you all the best as you continue on your new career path!
- Pursuing this program is key.- 5/7/2018Bowen Brinegar • Software Engineer and Teaching Assistant • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Flex • Campus: Chapel Hill • Verified via LinkedIn
It's a great program for those that have had an interest in techology and have never pursued it. If you are a logical or design kind of thinker this is a program in which you can thrive. There is an awesome intrusctional staff and management team behind the program.
Available resources are: 13 hours of Code for 6 months with an industry leading teacher and teaching assistants, 1 hr of included 1on1 tutoring once a week, video guides for class review, and step by step solutions to complicated web application assignment, to just list a few of the benefits.
If you are looking to become a full-stack web developer, this course will provide you with all the tools you need to suceed. That being said, at the end of the day it is up to you to find the passion. The bootcamp with take over and foster it from there.
Response From: Lisa Shemancik of UNC-Chapel Hill Boot CampsTitle: Student Success ManagerTuesday, May 08 2018Hi Bowen, thank you so much for your review! It’s terrific to hear you learned so much from our curriculum and course instruction. Our instructors and TAs are truly passionate about what they do, so hearing they supported you during your journey makes their hard work truly worthwhile. We also think our entire team is awesome!
You are completely right in that it is up to the individual to use their passion and dedication alongside the boot camp's resources to fuel your success; great job of taking advantage of all the materials we offer to supplement your instruction - this was excellent advice for future students. We hope you're proud of all you accomplished and wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors!
- Excellent experience!- 5/7/2018Daniel Kim • Front End Developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Flex • Campus: Chapel Hill • Verified via LinkedIn
The phrase "Nothing good comes easy" describes this boot camp experience perfectly in that the amount of effort and work required to complete this boot camp was not easy but it was definitely worth it in the end. I could not have asked for a better instructor and supporting instructional staff that helped me develop the technical skills I needed in order to land my current dream job.
Big thanks to Trilogy and UNC Chapel Hill for providing this awesome boot camp experience where people, like myself, can learn valuable skills that are highly marketable.
Response From: Lisa Shemancik of UNC-Chapel Hill Boot CampsTitle: Student Success ManagerMonday, May 07 2018Congratulations on graduating Daniel! Like you mentioned, although this program is challenging and requires students to commit additional time and effort to master the course material, it's definitely worth it. It's great to know our market-based curriculum taught you the necessary coding skills and that our instructors and TAs provided plenty of support along the way. Our mission is to always assist and encourage students to be successful in this program and beyond. We love getting reviews like yours, as our team works hard every day to help fulfill this vision. Congratulations on your new dream role, we applaud all your dedication and commitment as you go forward!
- Couldn't Have Done It Without Them- 5/3/2018Maria Wong • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Flex • Campus: Chapel Hill • Verified via LinkedIn
Attending Trilogy's Bootcamp was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I had tried numerous times on my own to learn to program unsuccessfully. Within six months Trilogy took me from a novice to a professional full stack software developer.
The most valuable aspects of the program are the highly-researched curriculum focused on relevant software technologies, challenging weekly assignments creating full applications, experienced teachers and teacher assistants who are enthusiastic about the material and work hard to make sure students fully understand the concepts, and a student success manager who is dedicated to ensure students succeed and have a great experience throughout the program.
The program teaches a lot of material in a very short amount of time, but it is manageable and you are even able to work full-time while completing the program. I recommend the Bootcamp to anyone who wishes to come out with the confidence and skills needed to build full-stack applications from scratch and to learn new technologies quickly.
Response From: Lisa Shemancik of UNC-Chapel Hill Boot CampsTitle: Student Success ManagerMonday, May 07 2018Amazing! Thank you, Maria. We are thrilled you had such a positive experience with our program, successfully learning the fundamental concepts of full-stack web development. We are happy to hear our curriculum helped you gain in-demand industry skills and that you felt challenged in the hands-on coding projects. We know the importance of quality instruction and select team members that are experienced and passionate about student success! As you mentioned, this course is fast-paced; as such we commend you for all of the hard work and additional hours you put in to complete the boot camp. We can’t wait to see what you will accomplish with all the knowledge you gained and wish you the best of luck with your future goals!
- Life changing- 5/3/2018David • customer service engineer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Flex - Part-Time • Campus: Raleigh • Verified via LinkedIn
Honestly its a lot of work and can be intense at times. They call it a boot-camp for a reason, but its so much more than that. I refer to more as in immersion in programming. If you're looking to go into something that will challenge you and frustrate you every day computer programming is the career for you. The boot-camp helps you get used to not knowing anything and learning how to leverage resources outside of class like you would have to work on a real-world project. Plus it helps that shortly after I graduated I got a full-time job making more money than I ever have in my life.
Response From: Lisa Shemancik of UNC-Chapel Hill Boot CampsTitle: Student Success ManagerThursday, May 03 2018Congratulations on completing the program, David! We know this is an immersive and challenging course, so we commend you for all of the long hours and hard work you put into the program - it definitely paid off! We pride ourselves on our proven curriculum, teaching students how to learn, and giving them key foundational skills across a variety of programming topics. We are so glad to hear you had such a positive experience. Thank you for your review—We wish you all the best as you continue on your new career path!
- Worth the Investment- 5/2/2018Paul Zavattieri • Software Engineer I • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Flex - Part-Time • Campus: Raleigh • Verified via LinkedIn
Short and simple version:
Great boot camp. It's tough, there's a lot of material, and it will require a lot of discipline and work on your part. That being said, it'll take you from 0 to professional entry level developer in 6 months if you put in the work into two areas: 1) Learning/practicing the material, and 2) building your professional presence. In my opinion and experience, it is worth the cost and time. I secured a Software Engineering job less than 1 month after graduation. Prior to the course, I had 0 dev experience.
I'm a skeptical person. I definitely had my skepticism about paying for this course and wondering if the investment would pay off in a job in 6 months...seemed too good to be true. At the end of the day, it's up to you and your effort/drive as to whether or not the investment will pay off. I have a few friends from the course that are now successfully in dev jobs - so this definitely will prepare you for dev roles and companies definitely do hire boot camp graduates. LinkedIn recruiters will reach out to you frequently once you get towards the end of the course. To me (I was in finance prior to my career change), any investment where I can completely control the rate of return is a great one. If you have the drive and desire to put in the time, I highly recommend the UNC Coding Boot Camp.
Response From: Lisa Shemancik of UNC-Chapel Hill Boot CampsTitle: Student Success ManagerThursday, May 03 2018Hi, Paul, thank you so much for your review! Our entire staff - instructors, TA's, Student Success Manager, and Career Services team - are all incredibly passionate about education and changing our students' lives. We love hearing the in-person classroom experience was helpful, as we know how valuable it is to collaborate with classmates and learn to work as a team on various projects.
As far as your advice, we couldn't agree more. You are completely right that this is a rigorous course that requires discipline and commitment; it takes hard work and long hours outside of class, so we applaud you for mastering the material and building some amazing web apps! Not only are we proud of all you were able to accomplish in the last six months, but we are amazed at your dedication during the job search that ultimately led to your new career change. Congratulations on your new Software Engineer role! We wish you great success moving forward.
- Intense and Worth It- 5/1/2018Steve Hulme • Program Manager • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Flex - Part-Time • Campus: Raleigh • Verified via LinkedIn
I am a March graduate of the UNC Coding Bootcamp. I took the Bootcamp in order to return to my "roots" as a software developer, after 20 years of project and IT Professional Services management. I'm glad I took this Bootcamp -- it is head and shoulders above the alternatives.
The Bootcamp's strong points are these:
- Training in current software frameworks and technologies.
- Excellent, well-written, and challenging exercises and homework.
- Hands-on development. Instruction is emphatically not "death by powerpoint". You will write a lot of code!
- We had a terrific instructor, one of those rare individuals who was born to teach. Our instructor has extensive experience as a developer and as a manager of development teams at a major corporation. That experience, plus enthusiasm and the ability to explain complex topics, made class presentations compelling and enjoyable.
- TA support. There were, usually, 3 TAs -- all veteran developers -- for 32 students. Thus (and including the instructor) we had an 8:1 student/faculty ratio. As a result, it was easy to get help and that help was given by people who know what they are doing.
- A Student Success Manager (SSM) who worked very hard to ensure each of us had a great experience. Our SSM was always available, responsive to questions, and committed to our success.
To conclude, this is a professionally run and supported Bootcamp that provides a quality educational experience, focused on currently-relevant software technology.
If you fully participate in every class and do all the homework you will acquire solid software development tools. To become a true software developer you must do additional reading and research, as well as gain on-the-job experience, but these requirements are true for any profession. The Coding Bootcamp will give you the tools you need to progress down your professional path.
Knowing what I know now, would I take the Coding Bootcamp again -- absolutely! I am very grateful to the Instructor, TAs, and our SSM for their help and dedication to my success.
Response From: Lisa Shemancik of UNC-Chapel Hill Boot CampsTitle: Student Success ManagerWednesday, May 02 2018Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review, Steve! It made our team's day to know that you enjoyed our boot camp and received the necessary support from our instructors, TA's, and Student Success Manager. It's terrific to hear that your experience in the program helped you further advance your previous programming skills. Our entire team is passionate about what they do, so receiving feedback like yours makes all of their commitment truly worthwhile.
We’re constantly updating our curricula and student feedback is an important part of keeping our course material up to date, so we really appreciate your input. We couldn’t agree more that the program depends solely on what you’re willing to put into it. You’ve definitely worked hard, so we congratulate you on your accomplishments! Congratulations on completing this course and we wish you all the best as you move forward in your career!
- Great choice- 9/8/2017John-Mike Marquardt • Sr Engineer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Flex • Campus: Chapel Hill • Verified via LinkedInThis was a very challenging 24-week course, but also very rewarding. The UNC coding bootcamp is the best way to experience an overall full-stack understanding of modern web development while also still working full-time. We used all of the common tools (git & github, slack, trello, heroku, sublime/atom) that developers use right from day one. While fast paced, we incrementally built our knowledge and skills in a very digestible timeframe. The opportunity to be a part of a cohort in a classroom with excellent supportive instructors and staff is invaluable to learning. I learned more in 6 months of bootcamp than I did in two years of MOOCs.
Response From: Ilyssa Rosenzweig of UNC-Chapel Hill Boot CampsTitle: Student Success ManagerFriday, Sep 15 2017You rock John!
