Congratulations on completing the course, Joe! Our instructors and TA's are incredibly passionate about helping students learn hands-on full-stack web development, so we’re happy to hear they were so helpful and attentive throughout the program. We understand you would have liked additional reading materials, and we appreciate this feedback as we're constantly updating our curriculum.

It is our goal to create a positive and collaborative classroom environment, designing group projects that best simulate real-world experiences students may encounter. We regret you struggled with a disruptive group member and want all students to leave the boot camp feeling positive and confident. If you would like, please contact me directly at (612) 424-8605 so we can further address any concerns you may have. Once again, congratulations on your hard work and dedication. Thank you for your review and we wish you all the best!

Thank you for sharing your experience, and congratulations on completing the program! We're happy to hear you found our boot camp team to be friendly and helpful.

From your review, we understand your instructor might not have met your expectations when it came to learning React. We do hire industry professionals with a minimum of three years of experience as active practitioners in the field. Each individual is vetted by the University of Minnesota and trained in instructional best practices before being introduced into the classroom. However, we know that not all teaching styles will resonate with all learners. The student experience is our priority and we actively monitor instructor performance through weekly student feedback surveys on instructor clarity, engagement, and knowledgeability.

As a boot camp, we know that the curriculum is fast-paced and challenging while covering a wide range of topics, and we do our best to make this clear to prospective students. Topics are introduced at a high-level in-class, after which learners are expected to dive in and not only gain a deeper understanding of the concepts covered, but practice their skills outside of the classroom. Each lesson builds on the last and we find that as the curriculum progresses, most participants feel increasingly confident in the knowledge they've gained. This methodology helps individuals learn how to problem-solve and self-teach—crucial abilities needed in any programming role. To help students through the rigorous curriculum, we do offer several means of support including office hours, Slack, and free tutoring sessions. Were you able to find these beneficial?

The core concepts in our curriculum were engineered using extensive market and employer research, but we are constantly optimizing our course as the industry evolves. We know that technology is ever-changing, so we want students to graduate with the necessary skills to quickly learn new frameworks and languages on their own. Our team is continually updating our course material and instructional support to ensure students have the best learning experience possible, so we truly appreciate your input.

Our career services team is built on the principle of empowerment and we strive to continuously support students throughout their job search. We regret you did not have an opportunity to fully participate in the career assistance experience of the course. While we do not secure direct employment for our learners, we work to empower students with the necessary resources and support they need to enter the workforce. Our professional development curriculum includes 1:1 coaching, resume support, portfolio reviews, and more. Were you able to utilize these resources? Your job support does not end upon graduation; you're still able to reactivate your career services support today and gain access to a range of continued strategies and coaching.

It is our goal for all students to leave the program feeling not only confident in the skills they have gained but also equipped for success as they step out into the industry. We would love the opportunity to speak with you further about how we can supplement your learning or career search at this time. If you would like, please reach out to us at (612) 424-8605.
