    I had a very positive experience with the UNC Web Development Bootcamp.  Like many other students, I didn't know quite what to expect; however, the Bootcamp exceeded my expectations, particulary with the instructional staff and overall curriculum. 

    My instructor was fantastic.  He was able to teach to both novice and experienced developers alike.  Not only did the instructor present the material in an engaging way, he always refered to instances in the real-world where the concepts would apply.

    The curriculum is mult-faceted, which was my favorite part of the bootcamp.  The lessons cater to new programmers, however, they also provide additional depth for programmers with some background.  While a novice developer will benefit tremendously from this course, I would recommend that anyone interetested in the bootcamp look into basic javaScript concepts first.  I had some previous development experience, and this allowed me to grow substantially as a developer during my 6 months with the bootcamp. 

    The TA's were also fantastic.  They were all patient and knowledgeable, and provided great real-world insight into the material.

    Overall, I would recommend this Bootcamp to anyone looking to level-up as a web developer and javaScript programmer.  Note - to succeed, even with some previous experience, the program requires a substantial time commitment.  I would absolutely do it again!

    Since I had no previous experience in coding, it has been a truly invaluable learning experience for me. The course was very organized, well-focused, and designed in a manner that learning is not limited. However, this course is very challenging and fast phase. Instructor was very engaging and made the class enjoyable which made significantly stress-free for the newbies like me. Additionally, the professionalism and the support being extended by the tutor and the admin team was really great, and I am thankful to them.

    This coding bootcamp is a great way for learning JavaScript-powered web devlopment.  My instructor was excellent at conveying the material, and the exercises felt very well thought out for coming to grips with a lot of improtant concepts.  As someone who went in with virtually no programming experience, I was very happy about how much I felt I was able to learn and achieve in just six months, and highly recommend the program for anyone looking to get into this line of work.

    Buyer beware!  I had a terrible experience in this BootCamp. The TA's in my class were weak at best.  One of them quit a month into the camp, the other one had to be let go.  They routinely sat in the back and talked about personal matters or would go against class teachings. Mainly, they were just not helpful in completing assignments or learning the subject matter.  Job placement is a joke with this program as well.  One of the TAs was just a student from the last class who didn't find a job.  We finally got some good TA's, but it was halfway through the class.  

    Then there was a problem in my initial group project where a student was abusive to me and other teammates.   I reported the problem to my instructor and to class organizer several times, both of whom told me to tough it out, and it was in my best interest to power through.  I ended up learning nothing on that project and losing a lot of confidence.   It put me further behind.

    Our instructor and the curriculum are really good, but all the other needed support is lacking.  No one in my class who was working full time was able to keep up and its even harder to keep up when the class is run this poorly.  I ended up giving up on this class and am just working through the curriculum at my own at my pace at home.  I have a lot of IT experience, so this is actually working much better for me!  In summation, its not a complete loss, but i definitely don't feel i got the value promised.

    Thank you for your review, Paul. We're glad you enjoyed our curriculum and found our instructor to be knowledgeable and supportive. We regret to hear your time with your initial TAs did not meet your expectations due to staff changes. We do monitor instructional team performance through weekly feedback surveys and classroom assessments, and we are glad that you found the newer TAs to be more helpful.

    While we do not secure direct employment for our students, we empower them with the resources and support they need to prepare them for the workforce and the job search. Our team strives to be clear about the scope of our career services from the beginning so that students understand how they can maximize this aspect of the program. Our career services curriculum includes 1:1 coaching with a Career Director, technical interview preparation, portfolio assistance, resume support, a project demo day, and more. We do take student feedback like yours seriously, and continuously work to provide students with the support they need to be successful.

    Group projects are intended to simulate experiences that students may encounter within a team of web developers in the real world. We strive to recreate a collaborative atmosphere found in many professional web development positions and recognize not every individual effectively learns in this manner. Unfortunately, in any workplace, you may not always be grouped with like-minded individuals and we regret you had a sub-par experience with your teammate. We take any reports of abuse or mistreatment most seriously, and it is never our intention to make students feel as though they should remain in a situation they are not comfortable with. We were happy to address all your concerns and believed, based on our previous conversations, we had provided the necessary support and assistance you requested, moving forward with a tailored study plan to best fit your needs.

    It is our goal for all students to successfully learn the material in our curriculum and leave the program feeling confident in their skills. I have attempted to check in, but have not been able to reach you. I would love the opportunity to hear from you personally and see what we can do to provide any and all additional support you might need at this time, making sure you are able to successfully finish out the program. Please contact me directly at (919) 425-0055 so we can further discuss your concerns.

    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.

It's tough, challenging, and can be overwhelming at times, but the sense of accomplishment that you get when overcoming these obstacles is one of the best feeling in the world. The classroom materials are excellent, and the instructors and staffs are extremely helpful and passionate about their job; always willing to go the extra miles to help their students, even late at night. The technologies that I learned are very relevant to the job market's demand, and compared to six months, my skills as a developer grow tremedously. I feel very prepared to face the job market after graduation.

    For anyone looking for an honest opinion about the UNC coding bootcamp....I finished in December 17 and will give my opinion.  The curriculum is created by trilogy and is used at many bootcamps they host.  It is good and there are great examples provided for each subject, but it is just an overview of each topic. You learn enough to have a basic “working” knowledge of each language.  You must take that and go deeper into the languages yourself. This is really at any bootcamp because there is so much taught in a short time.  Overall, I was happy with the academic portion of the class.  It was challenging, but I had great teachers.....HOWEVER.....if you are like me and many of the students who take this course with the intention of finding a job after....I MUST WARN YOU......the career services is completely aweful....they promise a lot of things throughout the course and very little of them happened...... I hope that they improve this for the students sake....but as of now....CAREER SERVICES IS A JOKE.....you would be better off not even using them.....This has been my experience and that of many of my fellow students....

    Our instructor mentioned on the first day that the people who do best in the class are usually those who spend the most time outside of class studying and doing homework assignments and projects. Although it is true that with this course you get out of it what you put into it, there is a great deal of support from the instructor and the teaching assistants. You aren't left alone, and if you are struggling with a concept they will work hard to make sure you really understand the subject matter. For example, they don't just help you debug, they will explain the underlying reason for the bug (often not at all obvious) and make sure you have the tools to better find bugs in the future.

    The most pleasant surprise for me in taking this course was how much the instructor and TAs loved the subject matter and wanted us, the students, to really understand it.

    The curriculum is intended to prepare you for real programming work. It does teach you how to create a full website, from the front-end to the database.

    I worked full-time while taking this course, but I had some advantages in having past experience as a software developer (and with computers in general). I think that if computer programming is completely foreign to you, it would be better to take this course without working full-time at the same time. But if programming and computer science aren't completely foreign topics, it's possible to work full-time and take this course. Either way, be sure to get plenty of sleep.

    My overall experience with the boot camp was a great one. It was a lot of hard work, but I learned a ton in a very short amount of time. More so than the knowledge learned, the confidence built from working hands on to create apps with course technologies and experiencing first hand how much can be learned with enough focus and dedication was the greatest takeaway from the course.

    Additionally, working with the other classmates and the networking that spawned from that was of huge benefit.

    Finally, the instructional team for our class was excellent. Nick, Ryo, and Leo saw us through many challenges, and I felt that their enthusiasm for the course materials and our growth as students was a big help during more stressful sections of the course.

    When choosing a coding bootcamp three major criteria should be taken into account: does the staff genuinely care about student success, is course content valid for career aspirations, and does the course's curriculum effectively leave students with skills needed to be effective in a professional environment? 

    The Coding Boot Camp at UNC Chapel Hill delivered on every level.  Course management was engaging and took time to engage with students and their career aspirations. Course instruction was very knowledgable on topics covered in class and presented the course information effectively. Teaching Assistants went out of their way to support students whenever assistance was required.

    Personally, I was fortunate enough to land a full time position at a local SaaS company before the course ended and felt more than prepared by the course.

    I have nothing but positive feedback to provide from the course and recommend it to anyone considering enrolling!
