    The instructional team is excellent. The instructors do a good job explaining complex subjects and are there for you to either help with your code/homework or just hear you out and share their experiences. The success manager is also kind, friendly, and willing to listen to students. 
    However, before enrolling in this Bootcamp, just know the curriculum comes from Trilogy. I strongly recommend reading reviews on Trilogy Bootcamp (especially on Reddit), and you can make your own opinion on it. 
    The curriculum is outdated, and you will spend half of the course learning Web Development from the early 00s. (For instance, writing code with vars, jquery, etc.)
    They will only teach you React (one of the most wanted front-end libraries) about four weeks before the end of the Bootcamp. Learning Redux, for example, is very important, and I saw that as a requirement for many job postings. But they don't teach you that.
    With that being said, I know a lot of graduates don't feel ready to find a job because they spent half of the course learning Web Development that is no longer used.
    Projects 1 and 2 are nearly irrelevant to your job search due to the fact that they use outdated front-end technologies that companies don't typically utilize anymore. 
     A month after graduation, only one person in my class had a job because they already had experience with a technology that we did not even learn during the Bootcamp.
    The Career services are a complete joke. They take three weeks to give you feedback on your material. On demo day, there are hundreds of students to present and not enough industry professionals to watch the presentations. Some people didn't even have the chance to present their project because no employers were in their room to see it.
    The amount of money you pay is absurd compared to how much instructional time you get. Classes last only 4 hours a week and 2 hours of office hours. 
    I would recommend shopping around on other Bootcamps if you have no prior coding experience to try and see if you can get more hours in class. 
    Pair programming (another milestone that companies love for candidates to have) is almost unexistent. While in class, you have about 12 minutes to solve each challenge in pairs, and sometimes just installing everything you need for the exercise can often take half of that time.
    I spent, give or take,  40 hours a week on Bootcamp material,
    and it is very disheartening to see on job descriptions that much of this time could have been spent learning more modern technologies.
    While I understand that Vanilla Javascript is the foundation for modern frameworks, some of that could have been covered during the pre-work. The curriculum could have been catered to what matters the most to industry professionals.
    In summary, please do your research before signing up with any university whose curriculum comes from Trilogy.
    It isn't easy to know what is important for job searching when you have no prior coding experience, so hopefully, my review will help other students. I recommend reading job descriptions of the career field you desire to see what is in demand and then find a Bootcamp/program that teaches that material.
     And last but not least, try to choose one that will provide more instructional time each week.

    Thank you for your review, we appreciate your feedback. We're glad to hear you benefited from the support of our entire boot camp team although regret the entire learning experience did not live up to your expectations.

    Like you noted, UNC-Chapel Hill Digital and Lifelong Learning has partnered with Trilogy Education Services (TES), a 2U, Inc., brand, to offer The Coding Boot Camp at UNC-Chapel Hill. UNC-Chapel Hill Digital and Lifelong Learning is deeply involved in the curriculum, instructor selection, and outcomes of each of our classes, and routinely meets in conjunction with TES to monitor the learning experience and performance. Both UNC-Chapel Hill Digital and Lifelong Learning and TES are truly dedicated to transforming participants' lives and aim to be fully transparent about this relationship throughout the entire learning experience.

    We not only strive to equip individuals with a robust academic framework, but we also work hard to help students develop strong problem-solving and self-teaching abilities: two qualities necessary in any real-world role. Our curriculum is based on extensive market research, teaching in-demand skills that learners can use to enter the current field. We also provide supplemental resources throughout the course and host structured review sessions to increase academic understanding of core concepts and frameworks. From your review, we understand that you did not feel this learning approach was sufficiently beneficial for you and we appreciate your input as we are constantly working on optimizing our program offerings to ensure individuals are learning the most valuable skills and concepts.

    Job seeking is difficult and takes hard work on the part of the participant. Our professional development services are built on the principle of empowerment. While we do not secure employment for learners, we do provide more than 75 hours of professional development, consisting of resume and portfolio reviews, virtual tech panels, technical interview training, and more.

    We are committed to students feeling confident in their skills upon leaving our boot camp, so we'd love to hear from you directly to see what else we can do at this time to best meet your expectations and reinforce your learning. If you would like, please reach out to us at (919) 425-0055.

    I enjoyed every part of this class, even though at times it was frustrating, it was totally worth it. The team i had: Zach, Tim, and Carl, were all great and attentive instructors. It isnt called a Bootcamp for nothing, its fast, brutal and painful. Would i do it again, hands down yes. Everyone is there to support you and make sure you succeed! No downsides.

    Great Experience! Even though it was stressful at many (most) times, the support from the instructor and TA's where outstanding. They were always there to help. Even if you were completely lost, they made every effort to get you on track. Over the corse of 6 months, everyone really did become a bit of a coding family. 

    This was a fast paced corse, and an excellent opportunity to add a whole host of new skills to my resume. My goal was to be able to add on to an existing skillset and be able to get myself better prepared for a possible career change. As intense as the corse was at times, it really did go by very quickly. I went into this with absolutely zero coding ability. I still have my work cut out for me, but things are not nearly as daunting anymore!

    I'm truly looking forward to implementing my new skills and see what it brings!

    I did not have the experience that many bootcampers have expressed.  I expressed concerns many times while taking this course.  The standard response I received was "Don't worry it will all come together in the end".  Although I spent many hours studying and researching topics, it did not all come together in the end.  I would recommend spending $10.99 and purchasing the Udemy course Web Developer Bootcamp by Colt Steele.  When this course is complete purchase the Advanced Web Developer Bootcamp by Colt Steele for $10.99.  There are many courses on Udemy to learn Web Development.  When you finish Colt's classes you will have a very clear understanding of Full Stack Web Development and save thousands of dollars.  One final note, everyone who attended the UNC Coding Bootcamp in my class received the Certificate of Completion, even those who had many classes absences and did not complete all the assignments.

    Hi Anonymous, thank you for your feedback. From your review, we understand you may have not had previous coding experience and do not feel that you were able to successfully master the material. We designed our curriculum to teach individuals across varying proficiency levels, from those with more knowledge to true beginners. Before starting the boot camp, all students are provided 30 hours of pre-work, and we do recommend that those without prior experience spend extra time on free online tutorials in addition to the pre-work.

    Upon starting the course, we begin by covering the basics, building a solid foundation on which students can continue to expand. Each lesson iteratively builds on the last, and we find that as the curriculum progresses, students feel more and more confident in the material. We strive to make sure students are clear before enrolling that they will also need to spend 20-30 hours a week studying outside of class to be job-ready by graduation.

    Because we know this is a challenging course, we do offer several means of support. Our instructors hold office hours before and after every class to provide 1:1 support, along with weekly walk-throughs to expand upon upcoming topics and reinforce prior concepts. Our free tutoring network is also always available for those who request additional assistance. All classes are also recorded so that students can access and refer back to any lesson if they need to review the material further. Were you able to take advantage of these resources?

    We work with all of our students' when it comes to unexpected situation-specific absences. In these instances, individuals are still able to fulfill their program responsibilities by watching class videos, attending tutoring and remote classes when possible, and submitting outstanding homework and projects. Once these conditions are met, students are able to successfully graduate and receive their certificate of completion.

    We sincerely care about our students, and it is our goal for all individuals to complete the program feeling equipped with the knowledge and resources to find the right tech role. If there is any other way in which we can support you at this time to ensure that you feel confident in your skills, please reach out to us at (919) 425-0055.

    I waited until I was close to a year removed from finishing the program so that I could write I very honest and not emotional review.

    I will preface this with I had an amazing experience and I landed a great job at one of the top companies in the Triangle. Trilogy's strength are great and their weaknesses are terrible. One of there weaknesses is their non-existent acceptance criteria. Most people in the class did not complete there pre class assignments and I would say 10-20% should not have been allowed in for the simple fact that they had such little experience that they were so far behind from day 1 and they never had a chance to catch up. It was not fair, they were set up for failure and wasted their money. For the people that were prepared we hit the ground running from day 1. The amount of learning that takes place is in incredible. My Teacher and TA's were amazing. They cared about our success and they worked very hard. I still keep in touch with all of them. The other co-hort going on at the same time did not have as good of a teacher and TAs and they had a much lower success rate. I thank God that I got the teachers that I did. Our Student Success Manager (not to be confused with career services) was great as well.

    Trilogy does give you a very fair expectation of how much work this class is going to take and how much time is necessary in and out of class. I would say maybe 25% of the capable students actually put in the amount of time Trilog suggest 20-40 hours outside of class. There was a huge difference between those students and the ones that didn't. I put in on average 30 hours outside of class with a Full-time job so it is possible. The curriclum was great other than you spend 2 weeks learning .net and C# impossible and a waste of time. Also, the part of class where you are learning while doing the final projects is also impossible (testing and algorithms) because the final project is expected to be in React which nobody had a grasp on so everybody is giving all their time and effort into completing that.

    The two biggest negatives outside of the lack of acceptance vetting is that students who did not put in effort and did not complete there projects or homework assignments (but did turn them in) graduated with the same certificate that people who busted there ass did. Not fair to either group.

    The career services did nothing for me and I tried to engage and work with them. They also never gave anyone an honest expectation of how much work was going to be required after class for them to find employment(continuing ed, interview prepe, resume / portfolio / networking). Our career service person was also negative and was never completely forthcoming. At one point she was encouraging me to learn PHP and word press "becuase there is high demand there" which was here being lazing and pushing blame back on me. She also told me I should expect a job for less that half of the salary of the job I ended up taking because "low starting salaries" in my area. I would say out of the 40 - 50 people in my cohort I am one of 3 that I know of that found full time role as a developer in 6 months. A few got lesser roles still in IT or partime / contract and To be fair there were several people that got promotions at there current employer and I am sure the knowledge gained from the program had something to do with that. YOU WILL NOT BE HIREABLE upon completing the class, but you will be on your way if you continue to put in the same amount of work you did while in class. 

    My conclusion is I LOVED the class, but if you do not have a little bit of a self taugh background and the drive to put in 40-50 hours a week into this during and after the class you are wasting your money. If you expect career services to do anything other than send you crappy jobs listings to apply to (that often don't match the skills from class and all you classmates are also getting and applying to) you are wasting your money.

    Be honest with yourself before spending your money this is not a silver bullet and there are no short cuts.

    Hi Anonymous, thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We're thrilled to hear you had an amazing student experience and landed a great job at a top company. Our instructors and SSMs love hearing about the transformative impact they've made on students' lives.

    We appreciate your personal account on how we can continue to improve the program. In the time since your graduation, we've taken significant steps towards enhancing many of the areas you mentioned with a specific focus on career services. These updates have been met with positive input, and we're continually working to get better.

    For example, a recent career services change we've made is to offer more in-depth assistance to our 'Seven Milestones to Become Employer Competitve.' While we do not secure direct employment for our students', this comprehensive approach prepares and coaches individuals to find the right role for them through: technical interview training, portfolio reviews, resume/social media profile support, online Tech Talk panels, and one-on-one meetings with their Career Director starting approximately one month before completing the course and continuing for up to three months post-graduation. As you mentioned, it's crucial for individuals to continue developing their skills, particularly after concluding the course. We believe this approach, along with our students' hard work and commitment, will truly supplement their job search.

    We understand you would have preferred for some of your classmates to have more experience and prior knowledge. We designed our curriculum to teach individuals across various proficiency levels, and do have a multi-step admissions screening process. During this time, we evaluate individuals to ensure they are aware of the extensive time they will have to dedicate to their studies and are truly committed to their boot camp journey. Upon being accepted, students are provided with 30 hours of pre-work and we recommend beginners to spend additional time on free online tutorials.

    Once classes begin, our instruction centers around teaching students' how to learn. This strong foundation equips individuals with the necessary skills and capabilities to continue learning new concepts on their own. Since our program is fast-paced and challenging, we continue to assist our students' through weekly tutoring, office hours, and personal guidance with the help of our SSM. We truly appreciate your insight, as we seek to continuously improve our curriculum.

    We know the amount of hard work and dedication it takes to complete such an immersive course and commend you for all your achievements. At this time, we would welcome any other helpful suggestions you may have. If you would like, please reach out to us directly at (919) 425-0055. We wish you all the success moving forward!

    I started the bootcamp in February of this year, but even before that there was a lot of people reaching out and making sure I was fully prepared for what was ahead of me.  From career services to instructors, everyone was extremely outgoing and helpful, I never felt like them helping me was not a top priority. The course itself was extremely challenging and almost 100% hands-on learning. I had tried to pick up programming in the past, with little to show for it, but after only 6 months in this bootcamp I've learned more than I thought was possible.  I have nothing but good things to say about this program and have already recommended it to friends so that they can experience what I have as well.
