    The overall quality of this Bootcamp is excellent as it delivers what it is supposed to. The best part about it is the quality of most TAs is very high and they are eager to help us when we encounter difficulties. Some areas for improvement in terms of the pace of the topics should be modified as the amount of time needed for learning CSS should not be the same as learning React.

I appreciate that all instructors help me with their professional knowledge and the career coaching team with their sharing and encouragement. Without all of your help, I wouldn't be able to find my current job and start a new chapter in my life. I would recommend this opportunity to you guys, the chance to make your dream come true.

    When I first enrolled in this program to expand my skill set, I knew it would be intense, and although I had a basic understanding of what it entailed and the new skills I would learn, nothing prepared me for the journey I was about to embark on! I mean it in the most wonderful way possible when I say this. 

    I was impressed by the outstanding level of support and expertise from our instructor and TA's. Not only did they teach it to their students in a way that fosters deep understanding, but the curriculum itself was thoughtfully constructed to ensure the success of their students. I am now very confident in using my newfound skills in the workplace, and taking this boot camp has only served to enhance my marketability.

    At every stage of the learning path, I never felt alone. Our instructor, TA's and classmates became my cheerleaders and greatest supporters. Our Student Success Manager would frequently check in to prepare us for the next unit while ensuring we weren't falling behind and addressing any challenges we would encounter. 

    During and after completion of the boot camp, the Career Services Team stepped in to help me on the next leg of my journey, providing invaluable resources, advice and coaching.

    In conclusion, this boot camp is one of the best decisions I have ever made and would highly recommend it to anyone considering a career change or pivot.

    I decided to enrol in the bootcamp when my previous employer laid off the majority of its employees due to the ongoing pandemic. I had been with the company for almost 10 years and decided that it was time for a change. I took a chance and reinvented myself and pursued a new career path in web development.

    The bootcamp was an intense 6 months of learning but at the same time went by really fast. The instructors were very knowledgeable and my classmates were easy to interact with even though it was all online. There were many times where I felt overwhelmed with the fast pace of learning but it was good to know that you could seek help from tutors, teaching assistants and office hours.

    If you're considering enrolment into this program just be prepared to work hard and stay committed to your goal. If you lose focus and fall behind it can be a challenge to catch up. I recently graduated on November 24th and will be starting a new role as Node JS Developer within the upcoming week.

    I started with no experience but applied myself to this bootcamp and can now say with confidence that I'm a Web Developer!

    How/What led me to apply to the Boot Camp:
    I have a stable job and descent earnings at a company that I have been working for almost 3 years. When COVID hits, we started to working from home everyday and locked down at home since last year. Life became less fun and I wanted to learn a completely new skill set that will potential leads to new career opportunities even business is not doing great where I am working at. It will give me more career options and light up my life as I have something to look forward to besides my daily work.

    My experience / favorite aspect of the program:
    I enjoy learning online materials and attending the zoom classes with full preparation (including completing class activities ahead of time). Since this is a online class and is different than in-person class with less peer interactions, doing class activities in breakout room would be my favorite time, as we finally get to connect with other classmates during class.

    Any advice for other prospective students:
    If you're interested, well, come in prepare - as in, attend every class with preparation or complete required course modules ahead of time, knowing directions or answers in resolving class activities. This course is intensive for people who can make time every week from their busy schedule to study and complete assignments (especially when you don't have a coding background). Course fee may not be as affordable, yet the experience and knowledge you'll take away with you for life is priceless.

    I would just like to take a couple minutes to comment on my experience with the UofT Full-stack Coding Bootcamp.

    Let me start with some personal background.
    I originally went to school for Accounting, I had acquired a career in the finance/accounting sector of a steadily growing company. I worked really hard with a lot of late nights and burn out without being able to move forward. I was eventually let go and decided to take this opportunity to re-evaluate my life and career goals.

    After talking it through with friends/family, I decided to take the leap and see what would come of a total switch in career path. 

    First off, speaking with the admission advisors was exciting and they were immensely helpful.
    Coming into the course I was still very nervous. But ever since the first day, the instructional staff have been so great and helpful with making sure we stay on track and offering help through all hours of the day/night if needed. 

    Even though the boot-camp is very fast-paced, and can have some late nights, the support/help is so great.
    I'm very happy that I took this leap and I'm so excited to see where it will take me.

    I highly recommend

    My total experience with bootcamp has been exceptional, mind blowing and in fact I don't have any words to explain for how beneficial these programs are. As an immigrant to a country like Canada, these programs provide a stepping stone or an open door for career enhancements, for someone who is struggling to get a job, these courses will give you a competitive edge. The staff is thrilling, Kyla has been very helpful, Ali was my instructor and he knows how to get the crowd in learning state of mind, he knows how to pull everyone to the topic. Neil is another person who goes beyond his reach to help you. I will give this course a five ***** rating

    I have worked in sales and marketing for 25 years and thought I was done with further education.  But, in recent years I have felt disconnected and dependent on a younger generation to get tasks done.    I was hesitant about the time commitment and scared that I was a techno dinosaur - but the course is setup to be a supportive learning environment for everyone.   I feel the knowledge and skills I learned will keep me relevant and were worth the expense.  I have a new perspective on sales and marketing and a renewed enthusiasm for the workforce and continuing education.  I feel confident I can make strategic actionable plans for any business.  For new students, I encourage you to stay on top of your homework and truly use it as an opportunity to deep dive into new areas - you don't know what you don't know until you put yourself in a position to learn.

    I came with little to no knowledge and skills of the industry standard software being used today. After the 6 month course, I am confident in my abilities to explain cybersecurity, networks, offensive and defensive techniques, and how to harden a network against incidents and breaches. The price might be steep for some people but this pushed me more to learn the material, keeping patient with troubleshooting and utilizing the career services that are provided for me during and even after graduation. For those that are looking for a career change and looking for a more tech related field but have no experience, this should help you in knowing that the conceptual knowledge is a lot bigger part that needs to be understood compared to the technical side. As long you use logic with the knowledge you have, you will be able to execute the technical side of it because it will always be there.
