      I am currently halfway through the Bootcamp and am loving it.  I am a full-time musician and have lots of downtime when I am touring and work an odd schedule when I am playing locally.  I wanted to find another career that I could do on the side but am now looking for a full-time position. I have a child going into kindergarten soon and am looking for a career with a more regular schedule, but that also challenges and stimulates.  What attracted me to coding was the creative and logical nature of it.  It is similar to music in many ways.  I love software and, over the years, have had many ideas for websites and apps and wished I could create them myself.  I have wanted to take a Bootcamp for a few years, and after losing most of my work to the pandemic, I decided this was my opportunity. This class has far surpassed my expectations.

      I was skeptical going in, and it has wholly delivered so far.  The staff is fantastic, and I have been blown away by the support and culture.  My instructor, Maryus, is great. His knowledge, perspective, and attitude toward coding has taught me so much—just a great learning environment.  The class teaches coding in a real-world work environment, so it feels like you are getting work experience through the projects and homework.  We have been learning about project management and workflow.  These are things I didn't expect from the class.  If you are thinking about doing the University Of Oregon Bootcamp, I highly recommend it.  Be prepared to work extremely hard and put in hours.  Also, be ready to feel completely satisfied with what you are getting out of it.

      I completed the Full-Stack Flex - Part-Time bootcamp at the University of Oregon in 2019 and want to share my review of my experience. 

      Why I selected this program:

      I chose this bootcamp over some other options in the area mainly because I was looking for a part-time program. I work full time in a technical role and I was not looking for a career change. My motivation for taking a coding bootcamp was not to get a job as a web developer, but rather to refresh some coding knowledge I had learned in college about 10 years ago and to bring the value of that refreshed knowledge to my existing role at my company. It was also very helpful that my company offered to pay for 50% of the cost of the bootcamp (any bootcamp) in exchange for finishing the program.

      Why I wish I had not selected this program:

      Some red-flags showed up for me early in the process that in hindsight I wish I paid more attention to them. The used car salesman-like pitches of the program I was getting from the people calling me to enroll in the program was one of the early warning signs that this program might not be right for me, but I figured they are a new program and were just trying to gain some traction in the area. Since this was something I had been interested in doing for a while anyways and my company was footing half the bill I let them convince me that this was the right program for me. I wish I had done more research into just what the little tiny print “Powered by Trilogy Education Services, a 2U, Inc. brand.” at the bottom of the bootcamp’s webpage meant prior to enrolling.  

      The pre-work they give you before the course starts was another warning as it seemed to lack any substance, but I figured it was still too early to gauge anything. The pre-work was to watch a few YouTube videos and to install some software on your computer. In hindsight I wish they provided some lessons on going over the basics of terminal navigation, going through the basics of variables, etc… real basic coding 101 type things. 

      The first week of our class was in disarray as the instructor wasn’t able to jump into the first lessons because he had to teach people how to use their computer to do basic things like create and rename files using terminal, navigate between folders using terminal. These were all things that, in my opinion, should have been covered in the pre-work! We had several weeks to complete the pre-work at our own pace and it was a perfect opportunity to provide lessons with exercises to teach people how to do this sort of thing so that the class could get off to a good start.

      A few weeks into the program I had a check-in with the student success manager where the intent was to find out how I was feeling about how things were going so far. I was very candid and expressed the concerns I was having about my expectations that the quality of the program would be a little more polished than it currently was. They let me know they were sad and disappointed to hear that I felt that way. They did not have another check-in with me again for the rest of the program (5 months). 

      Overall the curriculum throughout the entire program was disorganized, underdeveloped, outdated, and poorly designed. The group projects were unstructured, unguided, and were my least favorite part of the entire program (my classmates were awesome, though!)

      I did finish the course and I did receive a certificate proclaiming I completed a bootcamp from the University of Oregon, but I do not feel that I left the program with the knowledge or skill set that would be needed to land a job in the field. I strongly feel that this program did not offer any advantage over following one of the myriad of online programs which are not only cheaper, but have more structure and offer better curriculum.

      I am, quite frankly, surprised that an institution like the University of Oregon would lend not only it’s name, but it’s reputation to a course developed by Trilogy Education Services. After my experience with this program I will not pursue any program offered by University of Oregon. I simply do not trust that they perform due diligence in reviewing the curriculum or quality of the programs they put their name on. 

      If you are considering bootcamps as a way to get into software development or as a way to learn how to code you simply need to look elsewhere. There are so many options available in this day and age that are much better than what is being offered by “University of Oregon”.
