    This program prepares a rookie developer (with no experience) to be able to understand and navigate any codebase as well as a take on a new tech stack without being intimiated. The curriculum will prepare you to learn 'how to learn' so that whatever job comes your way you can confidently tell the recruiters if their specific stack isn't on your resume not to worry. You will learn the skills that are part of all programming languages and although you may not know the symtax yet, you can read the code and explain whats happening. The tech stack being taught is valuable and has given the foundation needed to interview even during class, and many of my classmates had job offers before the end of the cohort. 

    Areas of improvement for this bootcamp lay within preparing students a bit more during early aspects of class in relation to their career search. There are early career checkpoints, but its not a emphasized much in class so it does not feel as important or 'required' -- with this its easy to get stuck in the code working on keeping up with the schoolwork. If it could be integrated into the teaching points a bit more I see students taking these career assignments more seriously. That may be more a reflection on me as a student rather than a fair critique. Replacing handlebars with more React.js or React Native is the one curriculum downfall. It has value, but React is so intense a bit more time with that seems like a greater value than what handlebars provides in relation to jobs in Phoenix.

    Although I initially started this course with a background in programming, I felt like I was missing something when it came to my skillset and knowledge of development. I decided to enroll in the Full Stack Bootcamp course through the U of A and I have to say it was one of the best decisions I've made. Throughout the course I was exposed to a variety of new subjects while also reviewing some familiar ones. I enjoyed the stack that we were learning in this course because it is on par with what a majority of companies want in a developer today. My instructor and TA's were wonderful and tremendously helpful in enhancing my skillset and even helping me land a new job as a Software Engineer. I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to change their professional career, or even someone who wants to enhance their development skills.

    I would say that my overall experience was pretty good. My instructor and TAs in the class were extremely knowledgeable in the content presented. However, I do think that the curriculum could use a bit of an update. Considering that React is such an important and in-demand framework, I was surprised that there was only two weeks to focus on this. There were other frameworks that are included in the course that I really haven't seen employers looking for, particularly Firebase and Handlebars. Although it might be different in other parts of the country, these don't seem to be prevalent here in Arizona. Also, even though I took the 6 month course, you will need to spend on average an additional 20-30 hours per week to be successful. This course isn't for the faint of heart. Finding material to supplement what you are learning in class is essential to understanding the concepts in class. Finally, career services is a bit of hit-or-miss. My career services director, Mark, is great. He is really positive and has a lot of great tips. However, the profile coach that I had didn't give me anything that I couldn't glean from reading the career services rubric. From what I have heard, this is a piece of the program that they are focusing on improving. At the end of the day, though, getting a job after this seems like it will be as much hard work as getting through the course (I just graduated a little less than a week ago). I do think that career services will be there to support me along the way, but that will probably have to be a review for another time.

    Thank you for your review, Matthew! We're thrilled to hear you had such a positive student experience and felt supported by our instructors and TAs. 

    You are absolutely right that our boot camp model is rigorous and we cover a great deal of knowledge in a limited amount of time. We understand you would have liked to spend more time covering React.js, and we truly appreciate your feedback as our curriculum is updated frequently to ensure that it is competitive and that we are covering the latest market skills. We do our best to communicate to students that because we cover a full-stack, topics are introduced at a higher level in class, after which individuals are expected to dive in and gain a deeper understanding.

    Like you mentioned, our career services are built on the principle of empowerment, and finding the right position requires hours of hard work on the part of the student. We're confident you will find our post-graduation job support to be valuable — and we also agree that Mark is great! It's our goal for students to feel prepared for success in the job search after graduation, so we thank you for your insight. Congratulations on completing such a challenging course! We would love to speak to you personally and ensure you are properly equipped for the career search. If you would like, please reach out to us at (520) 917-1930.

    This bootcamp very much changed my life and the way I feel about myself. I was a data analyst for 8 years prior to going through the program. I didn’t hate my job, but I didn’t feel passionate about it. The company I worked for was downsizing and I could feel my time there was limited, so I decided to learn a new trade that seemed much more interesting to me. I had no prior experience aside from dabbling on Khan Academy or Codeacademy.

    I graduated in January of 2018 and can proudly say I have just hit my 90 day mark as a Front End Developer, all thanks to what I was able to learn through the UofA Coding Bootcamp. I look forward to going into work every day where I get to build stuff and solve complex puzzles for a living! I am so excited every time I get to explain what I do to new people I meet. I have truly found my passion in life.

    This program is absolutely meant for people who are self motivated. The hours are tough. You will be spending 10+ hours in the classroom every week, and if you want to be truly successful you also need to devote ~20 hours a week to homework and activities. It is difficult and tiring, but so worth it that at the end of my 6 months, I signed up to do it all over again as a TA.

    The program will provide you with all the materials you need to become a developer. There is an incredible level of support from the instructor, TAs, and student success manager to help you achieve your goals, but it is ultimately up to YOU to make sure you are putting in the time it takes to practice the skill.

    Now that I have seen the process from both sides (student and TA) I can honestly say that the people who run this bootcamp truly care about you and your success. The friendships and connections I have made through this program will impact me for a lifetime. My life will forever be better because of this experience.

    Way to go, Nicki! We are so incredibly happy to hear you hit such a momentous milestone as a front-end developer and truly found your passion in life. You are definitely right that this course is challenging and in order to be successful individuals will have to devote additional hours outside of class to master the concepts and exercises. It truly is up to you to put in the work, so we commend you for dedicating the necessary time and turning to our entire team for support - we love encouraging and guiding our students throughout every step of the way! Thank you for returning to TA for us and also being an important participant in our students' success. Congratulations on graduating and we appreciate you sharing your experience!

    I am a current student of the Part Time, Full Stack Flex program in Gilbert.The program has really uplifted me personally; it's been a great opportunity to build mastery. The curriculum is great, covering a wide range of topics, and I believe any student of web development should be able to find something they love to do in this course. The experience is also immersive. I've spent a minimum of 20 hours/week outside of class coding every week of the past 4 months. My skill level has grown at a terrific rate due to the availability of many projects and prompts to attempt as well as the rigor of the curriculum. Fair warning: I had dreams about programming for the first month of the course, I was so immersed. It was a tough adjustment, but it's been well worth the investment. 

    The instructors and TAs are really great -- they're open and available for questions and support every step along the way. Additionally, there is a team of people who provide career support and advice, as well as a Student Success Manager who is there to offer advice with work-life balance, professional development, and also coding! This program is very challenging and moves at a fast pace, and yet I've never felt unsupported. With 2 months left to go, I'm excited to finish and saddened to see the time going by. I was encouraged to start applying for jobs while still in the program, and after searching for a week, I'm being approached for interviews. I strongly recommend this option for anyone who is comparing boot camps or weighing their options for changing careers to web development.

    I graduated from the Coding Boot Camp in April 2018, and I highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about changing your life. As a matter of full disclosure, I returned to the class as a TA and am currently employed here. My opinions are my own and do not necessarily reflect those of the school; my employment certainly does not affect the objectivity of this review. Simply put, you will get out of this course what you put into it. Look at the other reviews here and elsewhere; you'll see the difference. That's certainly not to look down on anyone or to reflect poorly on them, but this class is intense, fast-paced, and demands extensive self-driven study and review outside of class. That's not something everyone can do. I would often put 30-40 additional hours after class - in addition to the 10 hours in class - per week. When I went through the class, I had a full time job, a part time job, and a family. My wife was pregnant through most of the class, and we moved the week before graduation. I finished the course with straight A's and was offered a job immediately after graduation, thanks to the portfolio show hosted by the school. They had us display our final projects to potential employers. Now that I'm at my new job (paying nearly double weekday my previous employer paid), I can see they wanted me specifically after seeing my work. You can do this. If you're serious about changing the course of your life, I'd highly recommend it. The support staff is singly outstanding. I didn't have any issues with TAs leaving, and all 4 of mine were absolutely top-notch. The teacher is so exceptional, I asked if I would be welcome as a TA, partially because I wanted to continue a professional relationship with him. I wish they had spent more time off React instead of introducing Java - that's a tiny gripe in the grand scheme of things.

    I learned a lot about programs that I would not have been exposed to otherwise. However, a big chunk of the bootcamp was focused on JavaScript and Geomapps? Stuff that you most likely don't need to know as a Data Scientist. I can make a website but I can't explain machine learning to you. There is very little emphasis on actual statistics. 

    Also, the "career assistance" is an automated bot that does not actually assist you in reviewing resumes and getting a job. This is probably one of the best selling points of the program and it's not even a real person.

    Finally, they don't teach you how to code. They "give you the skills so you can learn to code by yourself", which basically means that you become an expert at googling everything they are supposed to teach you. They brushed over things like loops and functions without dedicating the time that these concepts deserve. Honestly, I wish I had read a review like this before enrolling in this bootcamp. Your 10K is better spent at a different course!

    Thank you for your feedback, Fernanda. We're glad to hear you had the opportunity to delve into new programs, but regret to hear the boot camp as a whole did not live up to your expectations.

    Our course material is based on extensive market research, teaching in-demand skills that students can use to enter the current tech field, but we understand you would have liked to spend more time focusing on other technologies and concepts. 

    Like you mentioned, the curriculum is introduced at a higher level in-class and individuals are expected to continue building on that knowledge outside of class. As the curriculum progresses, we've found this methodology to be effective and witnessed students not only become increasingly confident in their new knowledge but also gain essential problem-solving and self-teaching skills: two essential qualities necessary in any real-world role. We're constantly optimizing our curriculum to ensure individuals are learning the most valuable skills, so we appreciate your input. 

    We have a dedicated career services team who strives to provide comprehensive professional development assistance. While we do not secure direct employment for our students, we do provide more than 75 hours of professional development, consisting of resume and portfolio reviews, virtual tech panels, technical interview training, and 1:1 meetings with their Career Director. Were you able to benefit from these resources?

    It's our goal for all students to complete the program feeling equipped for success, so we would welcome the opportunity to speak with you and determine what additional assistance we can provide for you at this time. If you would like, please reach out to us directly at (520) 917-1930.

    I was accepted to four different programs that I was deciding between before I chose to earn a certificate from the University of Arizona Data Analytics Boot Camp. My other three choices were: a Master’s degree in business analytics at the University of Arizona in Tucson, a Master’s degree in business analytics online through Arizona State University, and an online certificate through Harvard University (including a $10,000 scholarship). I asked for advice from some people who work in analytics at the hospital in my community, and both of them recommended the UA Data Analytics Boot Camp because they said the hands-on, in-person learning of this material would be more important in this industry than my other options. This option involved a huge commitment for me because I commute 2 hours each way to attend this class in person.

    I chose to study data analytics because of my interests and some previous work experience in marketing research. I worked for Information Resources, Inc. in Chicago, IL, more than a decade ago. I really enjoyed our testing of new food products in grocery stores and analyzing that data. For family reasons, I quit that job but always hoped to return. However, as I saw the increase in the availability of data, I realized that to work in a similar field now, it would be best to learn how to analyze this vast amount of data with new tools.

    My favorite aspect of the UA Data Analytics Boot Camp are the resources available to us. Our instructor, Mark, is excellent! We have talked as classmates about the fact that we’ve never gone to him with a problem that he wasn’t able to solve, often very quickly, too. Though he uses a PC in class, I’ve been able to use my Mac for everything, and he’s able to help people with both PCs and Macs. He is very knowledgeable about the topics, but what’s even better is that he loves what he’s teaching. I can’t help but get excited about it, even after my long commute! We also have TAs in class who are willing to help, and access to online tutors, which I’ve taken advantage of. It's helpful to have other classmates to ask questions of and to learn from right there in the class. Finally, there are so many resources available through Career Services. I have participated in many helpful online webinars and have received feedback on my brand statement and resume, with more to come including LinkedIn and Github.

    My advice to prospective students is to consider how much time you can commit for this 6-month boot camp. The title “boot camp” is very applicable because we cover the material very quickly. New material and new assignments are flying at us on a weekly basis, and the only way to absorb it is to spend enough time outside of class to apply what we’re learning. I have two part-time jobs while in this boot camp, but I seem to have more time to spend than some of my classmates, and that’s helped me. In addition, I’ve talked with two students separately (one from my class and one from another section) who told me, without me even asking, that the thing they regret most is not having more time outside of class to really dig in and learn this material. In one of the Career Services webinars, two previous graduates mentioned they spent about 30 hours/week outside of class. It was helpful to know that in advance.

    It's great to hear you're benefiting from the support of our entire instructional team—we also have to agree that Mark is pretty amazing.

    you will learn how to write code.

    So... check it out. I just finished the bootcamp last week. I'm like a freed hostage with Stockholm syndrome. 

    Long story short, it's expensive in relative terms (IMO), super fast-paced, and is one of those things where the effort you put in determines what you get out. When you sign up, they kind of beat that into your head (EFFORT) and, of course, you think you'll be fine and then holy shit you're on the bullet train to data town. But, if nothing else, you come out not as an expert in anything but you'll know how to use a cubic ton more tools than you went in with... 

    I'd taken numerous college level programming courses in the past so I understood programming concepts (OOP, etc) going in and it didn't really help. Pace is fast as fast. Like, fast. I cannot stress this enough. Fast. I also have toddler twins and a full+ time job. So I had to manage the fuck out of my schedule. My wife hates me but not because of the bootcamp but because I'm the type of dad that would commit to that kind of bootcamp. 

    BUT teacher and TA were top notch. Really good. My cohort was a cool group. All kinds of skill levels and backgrounds. 

    If you have a longing to like know tech stuff and you're around data or want to be around mounds of data, while expensive, I would literally be shocked if you regretted the bootcamp. Huge investment of money and time. Huge potential payoff for those of you without toddler twins and a wife who hates you for your lust for knowledge. 

    Good luck. I'd say God Speed but you don't need any more fast.

    I entered this course as a complete beginer. Within the first few weeks I was really wondering if I had made a mistake as I am a very slow learner when it comes to computers. I have confidence in my overall navigation of a windows or mac computer but as far as programing and reading code my only previous experience was copying and pasting code customizing my Myspace profile. Needless to say, I was very intimidated for a good portion of the course. From the first time I requested information about the school on their website to the moment I was handed my certificate was a very smooth experience. During application I was never bombarded with phone calls asking if I was ready to make a payment or felt pressured in any way. The career coaches you speak with in the begining are genuinely interested in who you are and what your goals and are there to give you a honest opinion as to whether this course would be a good fit for you or not. All in all I felt like I had real real resources and not a sales person there for me which is very important when you are about to spend a large amount of money for something you essentially have no knowledge of.

    Upon starting the course the environment of the classroom was very comfortable, everyone is there to learn and you all have one thing in common, this mental obstacle course you're both about to start! I feel as though I made very valuable connections because you grow together with people when you share a common goal and along the way you get frustrated and discouraged but then theres the joy you feel when you resolve the issue! We were all very different people with a common goal and we all learned alot together. When you leave the course you have people to connect with who can endorse you, inform you of other job opportunities, give tips or simply reminisce about the program together! The point being is you leave with  a connection of people in a industry you are trying to enter, this to me is something that money cant buy and is a very valuable thing you get out of this program.

    The course spans a wide range of material and is a very fast paced. This is as simple or complex as you want to make it. The time management aspect for me personally was the hardest part. You are learning at a fast pace and you have alot of resources but at the end of the day this program is teaching you how to build a website and everything behind the scenes, there is no other way to approach this than to know going in that this will not be easy, you have TA's with unlimited patience but they do not go home with you or constantly remind you to do your work, they're there if you need them but this is about you learning for yourself. Even if you show up physically but not mentally, you are doing yourself a disservice. I say this because I was there. This program is a gold mine but you have to do your part. 

    Leaving the program I learned much more than coding and programming languages. This program taught me to be adaptable when it comes to learning something new, to not get stuck in my ways and that its ok to make mistakes. When you are in a certain job position for almost 10 years you become stagnant. I felt like a complete idiot at times and learned how to explain my problems in a simpler more effecient way. I learned a great sense of responsibility and accountability which is something that was missing from my life. These are all things money cant buy and I can honestly say this course is now the reason I walk a little bit taller in my job because now I knoweven though I have not mastered the material we covered in the course, if I continue to learn and learn code as if school never ended I will not be stuck at my job for forever. This is a feeling that I did not have or think I could ever have in my life. This program was worth way more than what I payed for it.

    As I am now a graduate I cant comment much on the job market or career services much but I speak with a very happy and helpful career coach weekly who is encouraging and informative. I still communicate and am up to date on al the events that will be happening and still feel connected to the school. The TA's were all excellent and I aspire to be like them as they were supportive, fun and just all around great people. I am going to miss the friends I made at the U of A coding boot camp and encourage anyone who is thinking about doing this to do it. Truly a magnificent program that will forever be a turning point in my life.
