I just completed the UNH Full Stack Web Development Bootcamp and it was a very positive experience. I have 20 years of developer experience working at a large corporation, but I felt stale in my job and wanted to learn some newer technologies. This bootcamp really did the trick as it re-lit my passion for coding, so I am really glad that I took the course!
When I was deciding if I wanted to enroll or not, I had 2 issues that I worried about. One was the time commitment, especially committing to every Saturday for 6 months. The other was the instructors; I wondered if UNH could get qualified instructors because some of the technologies are so new that not a lot of people have expertise with them.
The time commitment is significant - I spent about 25 hours a week during the first half of the class, and about 40 hours a week during the second half of the class on class time and homework. But it is for a finite amount of time so it is do-able. Make sure you are prepared to put in the time, because you get out of the course what you put into it.
The instructional staff was excellent so I worried for nothing on that one. The Instructor and Teaching Assistants were all knowledgeable and able to communicate difficult concepts to a class with a wide diversity of backgrounds. Also, they encouraged collaboration rather than competition between students, so that made the whole experience a lot more fun and was a huge benefit to learning. If I had a question on homework, I could put it out to the class and someone would help within a few hours, either another student or the teaching staff. And this collaboration reflects the open source culture and a real work place, because wherever you end up working you will probably be part of a team, so to learn how to operate within a team is an important skill.
UNH partners with Trilogy Education for this Bootcamp. Although the program is new to UNH, Trilogy has been doing it at other Universities for a long time so the curriculum is pretty well nailed down. It is very fast paced and challenging and you learn a lot of information in a relatively short time. However, you don’t learn Java in this course. It is misleading for UNH to mention Java in the course description because we only spent 3 hours on Java. You could easily dedicate an entire bootcamp to learning Java and object oriented concepts, and if that is what you want to learn this is not the right program for you.
There is a career services component to the course also, since most people will be looking for a job when they complete the bootcamp. I found this helpful because I haven’t looked for a job in about 15 years, and the job search process has changed in that time. There is a Trilogy career curriculum which I found very helpful. However there was a lot of turnover in the career counselors, so that was a disappointment because you were working with strangers and never really had a chance for them to get to know you. I would rather have had 1 or 2 people helping me, rather than the 5 or 6 different career counselors that we ended up having, as a result of turnover.
I thoroughly enjoyed this course and got a lot out of it. I have already recommended it to friends and mention how great it is to everyone who asks.

We are very proud of our instructional staff and their passion for helping students succeed, so we are happy to know that you had such a great experience with them as well. Like you mentioned, UNH has partnered with Trilogy Education Services, a continuing education program manager that provides a proven and innovative curriculum to more than 30 top universities. This partnership allows our students to learn about the latest technologies in an environment that fosters lifelong learning and collaboration among peers. We are constantly evolving our curriculum to cover in-demand languages, and often times, we will make changes based on instructor and student input, such as diving deeper into one of the other technologies covered in the program, instead of what the original curriculum may have outlined. We do understand wanting to have spent more time on Java, and we sincerely appreciate you sharing this feedback, as that helps us to continue improving.
We are always working to ensure that our students have the best career services experience possible and are able to connect with the career staff on a personal level, so we do regret the change in career counselors your cohort experienced. However, our career services don’t end at graduation, so we would love to know how else we can support you as you continue the job search. Please feel free to call me directly at (603) 389-2051 so we can further discuss any additional needs you might have. We wish you all the best as you continue on your new career path!
Great experience. The curriculum is solid (and always being tweaked and tuned to make it better and keep it relevant). Scott, our instructor, was always clear, knowledgeable, and helpful. It was made clear upfront that your success is up to you and you will be expected to spend a lot of time outside class, practicing and learning additional material on your own, but they always point you in the right direction and offer plenty of support. Tutors are available and staff is accessible online.
It was hard to gauge exactly what career services would entail beforehand. You're given guidance on your resume and online profiles along with some interview prep. Our final projects were presented in a "tech fair" format, which was attended by a few industry reps. At least a few students landed a job before they even completed the course.
Overall, very satisfied.
