Congratulations on completing the program, Janet! We are thrilled you had such a positive experience learning valuable web development skills. You are correct that individuals will have to dedicate the minimum 20 hours outside of class, sometimes more, to truly master the topics. We designed every facet of our course, from the pre-work to the main curriculum, to help students ranging across various proficiency levels. As each class builds on the previous one, we work to give students the foundation the need to master additional programming languages and concepts post-graduation. It's great to hear you felt confident with every passing week! Our instructional team is passionate about teaching, so we are happy to hear they reassured and supported you whenever you needed it. Thank you so much for your review and for recommending our boot camp. We are cheering you on as you go forward!

Amazing, Hanna! We are so happy to hear you enjoyed your boot camp experience and constantly felt supported by our entire team. We know the amount of commitment necessary to balance life and the fast pace of the program, so you should be immensely proud of the hard work you dedicated!

Our topics are introduced at a higher level in class, after which students are expected to dive in and gain a deeper understanding outside of class. Like you mentioned, this ultimately helps individuals learn how to problem-solve and self-teach, key skills needed in a developer’s career, so we are happy to hear you feel fearless when it comes to jumping into new technologies post-graduation. Thank you for your review and congratulations on completing the program! We wish you all the best in your future endeavors.

Thank you so much for your review, Graham! You are definitely right in that we start slowly, with the intensity of our program ramping up to advanced, full-stack topics very quickly. Each lesson iteratively builds on the last, and there are no shortcuts to focusing on the basics at first. As such, we are thrilled our instructors and TAs were eager to help and were there to support you. You should be proud of the hard work and long hours you dedicated to learning the course material. Thank you for leaving useful advice for potential students, that is great input! 

We are glad to hear our career services team was responsive and insightful. While we do not secure direct employment for students, we work to empower them the best we can with the necessary tools and support for entering the job market, including resume support, 1:1 coaching, and technical interview training. We hope you found these to be helpful. Our program's professional development is designed to provide flexible support, however, it does require students input and is dependent on each individual's career needs. We are constantly updating our career services curriculum and continuously work to provide students with the assistance they need to be successful, so we truly appreciate your feedback. I'd love to hear from you directly to see what else we can do at this time to reinforce your employment search. If you'd like, please reach out to me at (804) 616-3270. Congratulations on graduating, we wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors!

Thank you for your review, John! We understand this course can be challenging for those with minimal programming knowledge. It is our goal to provide a beneficial learning experience for all of our students, ranging from those individuals who may have more experience to beginners. During the admissions process, we do our best to emphasize the importance of individuals studying on their own before class commences, even more so for those without previous exposure. As such, our pre-work is designed to cover all basic proficiency levels; a useful resource for those with previous knowledge, refreshing what they might already know, as well as preliminary course material for those without experience to get an introduction. We are constantly modifying our pre-work material in order to best prepare students for the challenges they will face during the boot camp, so we truly appreciate your input.

We are also continually working on ensuring students properly understand the latest technical terms, both before and during the course. We understand you would have preferred more allocated time for technical discussions and interview training, and are constantly refining our career services to best help students prepare for the job search, so we thank you for sharing this feedback. We do offer a monthly online tech interview workshop to which all students are invited to attend. Our next upcoming session will take place in June. If you would like additional information, please feel free to reach out to your Career Director.

We do believe that building your professional network is an essential function in furthering your goals and do our best to foster a collaborative atmosphere among classmates. Did you find this to be helpful when it came to sharing projects? We highly encourage our graduates to focus on relationship-building throughout the course (both within the classroom and beyond) as a way to maximize their networking and land the right role. Your Career Director was able to provide you with 1:1 Career Coaching and additional resources for your specific needs. The student experience does not end upon graduation and we hope you are finding our continued professional development support to be beneficial in the early stages of your job pursuit, especially as there is still upcoming career services curriculum yet to be utilized! I'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 employment search. Please reach out to me at (804) 616-3270. Congratulations on graduating, we wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors!

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your review, Sahir! You are definitely right that this program takes perseverance and passion, and we applaud you for all of your hard work during this program. We’re glad to hear that you liked the structure of this course and that our instructors gave you the support you needed. The in-classroom experience is designed to provide students with face-to-face instruction, opportunities to collaborate with peers, and access to maximum assistance and support.

We understand you would have liked to learn more about IP, XHR, and other high-level architecture. As you noted, because we teach such a wide array of technologies in a short amount of time, our curriculum focuses on providing a high level, hands-on understanding of the course material with the goal of individuals expanding upon this knowledge outside of class. However, we are constantly evaluating our curriculum and we use student feedback and market research to make changes regularly, so we truly appreciate you sharing this insight so that we can continue to ensure we're teaching the most in-demand skills. Congratulations on your first job offer! Our career services do not end at graduation, and we look forward to continuing to work with you 1:1. We are proud of all you have accomplished and wish you nothing but the best in your future endeavors!

Thank you for your review, Aaron! We’re happy to hear you had a positive experience learning valuable coding skills through our program.

Our professional development services are built on the principle of empowerment. We regret you did not find value in some aspects of our career services. We strive to set clear expectations and provide individualized support through technical interview training, portfolio reviews, resume/social media profile support, and more. Did you find these to be helpful? We recognize that students come from different professional backgrounds and as a result, we constantly refine our career services to best help individuals prepare for the job search. I know Aubrey Somberg, your Career Director, is still ready and willing to provide support! We have recently extended the scope of our coaching capabilities and believe you will find these advanced components to be a better fit for your vocational exposure.

Our instructors and TA's are incredibly passionate about helping students throughout every step of the way, so we’re happy to hear you felt that level of support. We’re thrilled that even with your existing programming background, you found the course challenging and were able to develop new skills.
