    Hello,

    I am a happy alumnus who just finished the data Bootcamp from the University of Toronto (UofT). Before, talking about the Bootcamp, let me give a brief overview of myself. 

    I have worked in the Data Science field for about 2 years and knew python quite well. However, the full stack and databases and public cloud, etc were relatively new to me. The biggest challenge was I was a new immigrant to Canada who landed here just before COVID  travel restrictions rolled out. Because of my lack of Canadian experience and partially because of COVID, none of the job applications seemed to reach employers. Quite accidentally, after searching a while on google, I ended up enrolled in this course and it was one of the best decisions in my life. 

    First of all, let me talk about the instructor - Ahmad,  who is well versed in every topic, ensured all the students in the class were brought to speed (especially, those students lacking coding background). He also conducted extra classes to teach the industry level cloud technologies. All his efforts are shown at the end in terms of the improvement we all had. He is not only very knowledgeable but also a great instructor who ensured the success of all his students. 

    Instructional team Krutheeka and Dami helped us not only with the materials but also provided the best suggestions and advice on projects. 

    We had visiting-instructors too, Yahya and Piro, who also ensured high-quality teaching, delivery, and provided valuable guidance.  

    Our Student success manager Kyla ensured students succeed in each milestone. She reached out to me on multiple occasions to check with me if I am doing well and anything is required for the successful completion of the course.

    Our Career Director Nathalie  connected with me from time to time to provide me with valuable career advice and support 

    Without them, my journey would not have been complete.

    Taking about the outcomes,

    I have successfully made a competent GitHub profile and portfolio which helped to have a strong online presence.
    All my career materials were reviewed and stamped as employee competitive, that helped to reach recruiters effectively.
    And the best part is to land a job just before the completion of the course. 

    I am very happy about the course and the outcome and encourage anyone to take it up and give your 100%. 

    Thanks,
    Bincy

    I graduated beginning of this year from Full Stack Web Development -Flex Part Time, it was a great experience. I could not have done it without the assistance of extremely talented and supportive instructing team in which I would take this opportunity to thank Edward Apostal. Ed has extensive experience in this field which he would share to the class to give us the real insight into current work model. He as held sessions and real time demos which were a great learning and helped me a lot over what I could have learnt from textbooks. He was always available to clear the doubts and would go extra mile to help and make us all quite comfortable. 

    Even after the graduation he would constantly inform us about any job opportunities he is aware of and also check on my team as we were working on a project for Next Level competition. I am very glad that I had this opportunity to learn from such an experienced and skilled person. Thanks.

    I wanted to change my career path towards Data Visualizations and Science. Found this course in line with my needs which is also affiliated from University of Toronto.  
    I had a wonderful experience in learning the fundamentals of Data manipulations and analysis using different languages like python, javascript, R, pySpark, etc, and associated libraries with these programming languages. I also gained extensive knowledge of various cloud and local databases and whole ETL process to save your project data safely.  I really enjoyed working on the assignments for 2 reasons : first, they were based on real data and real problems and second, though they were based on the knowledge you gained in class, these assignments are structured so that you go out of your comfort zone and so research of your own. Which I think is very analysed approach to increase the confidence in students.  
    Though the course duration is only 6 months, but they teach you a lot of things within only few weeks time and only enough time will be given to you to go through the details of a topic. But the best part is you can ask as many questions as you can and get a solution to your queries through offline channels also. If I have to give an advise, I would say, soak all information when in class or doing your assignments. Its very hard to not to focus on just one topic, but if you do you may fall behind. Do remember, there'll be ample amount of time and support still waiting for you after you finish the graduation. They are only giving you a platform to perform and then sky is limit for you to achieve.

    I graduated from the Full-Stack Flex bootcamp as of April 2020 and deciding to enroll and complete this course was one of the best decisions I have made for my continued growth in my field.

    The bootcamp had fantastic instructors such as Edward Apostal. Mr. Apostal was an excellent instructor because he taught the technology as a whole; teaching you how the technology works down to it's nuances. This was critical for my learning experience, as it prepared me to better grasp how to handle connecting all the pieces of a full stack application. This also provided me with a more well rounded understanding of how to troubleshoot problems as they arise.

    The Boot Camp is a 24-week, part-time web development course. The Full-Stack curriculum includes HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery, Node.js, Responsive Design, Heroku, Git, User Authentication, React.js, MySQL and MongoDB, among other skill sets.

    During the program students have access to resources inside and outside the classroom.
    - Teachers and Ta's are available before and after class and will often reply to you outside of scheduled hours.
    - There are tutors available if you need targeted assistance with a specific topic.
    - The course is always taking feedback and providing support.

    Aside from the core course syllabus, the boot camp also offers other services during and after the course such as:
    -  Career-planning services, which will orient you towards your career goals. 
    -  1:1 coaching with experts on how to enter into the industry. 
    -  Professional advice for writing resumes and presenting your professional identity.

    Joined the Cybersecurity bootcamp back in May 2019. With no IT background but just thinking about career change, did not know what to expect. 6 months later, thanks to the tirelessly support from the instructor, teacher assistant and Learner Success Manager, I have much clear idea which direction next. 

    The couse has coverd 8 major Cybersecurity domains. My favourite part was Incident response and Governence regulation compliance. It gave us not only the current insight of the indutry but the complete aspect of Cybersecurity. I would only wish we could have learn more about the Cloud security.

    Overall I had great learning experice and for sure recommand anyone who is interested in Cybersecurity.

    Joined the Cybersecurity boot camp back in May 2019. Having a full time job and personal responsibilities made the fast-paced course quite challenging. Having said that I found instructor, teacher assistant and Learner Success Manager extremely helpful to keep me focused on the course. 

    The course syllabus has covered the majority of 8 Cybersecurity domains. The part of the course that I enjoyed the most was penetration testing, home works with bonus questions, and hands-on labs. 

    In my opinion, cloud and wireless security was missing from the course; however, overall I am happy that I took the course.

    I joined Coding Boot Camp after finishing my undergraduate studies in Mathematics (statistics). By the time I graduated from this full-stack program, I have learned a lot regards for the full scope of web dev. I really like the instructor(Ed) that bring knowledge patient and passionate all the time. Also, the Ed 1-to-1 discussion make me feel that he actually caring his students. In the middle of the program, I started my full-time job (software deveopment related) and feel that under so much pressure. Great thanks to my instructor and Admin for helping me release the stress. Also, I am easily to get comfused while doing in-class exercise but finishing weekly assignments and group projects push me understanding the material better.

     

    If I have to be picky, I would suggest there will be more assignmnet supports for group project to assure I am able to deliver the best. Another future suggestions is that I hope there will be more time for introducing tech/tools (popular in the trend nowadays). We did some angular, react, java (basic syntax but not spring MVC as backend) but I look forward to seeing those materials a bit more since I am really interested in using spring framwork. But that is just a minor critque. 

     

    At the very last I would like to thanks again for this program not only for what I have learned but also I had some precious friendship. The learning environment is positive and supportive. I would also recommend my friends for the coding boot camp if they want to learn web development from scratch.

    I am a senior IT professional with over 20 years of experience in enterprise environments.   One of the challenges that I faced was the trend of IT digital transformation, emerging and disruptive technologies.  As open source tools became more popular and innovative it provided the flexible platform on creating applications and services.  As a result, I needed to learn these various software tools.  My challenge is that I didn't want to take single courses for each software tool which would be incredibly time intensive.  I was really looking for the training that a boot camp environment would provide to allow me to simultaneously learn all these tools.  As I was doing my research I came across this program and once I reviewed the syllabus I realized that this is what I needed to give me what I wanted in order to excel my career in this new digital age.  I evaluated how the scheduling would impact my current lifestyle and found that the hours and commitment was manageable.  This is why I chose this boot camp.

     

    I started this program in January 2019 and I was full of excitement! As I knew that once I acquired these skill sets, it would elevate my career. I quickly found that the program was quite intense.  In addition, the instructors were extremely knowledgeable.  My favourite part of this program is that everything we do is hands-on!  We don't learn just from theory but work on things as we go.  We did a lot of group projects that mimic real-life business cases, which made the program very relevant.  I really enjoyed the facilities and environment of the learning space that we were situated in as students.  It was very conducive to group learning--everyone was from diverse employment backgrounds, which made our skills really unique.  

    I truly recommend this program for any senior IT person like myself that are looking for a refresher, skill updates and those who are looking at data analytics.  This program provides you that one stop shop and the price is very fair!  My advice is to commit the time, attend every class, review the assignments as much as possible, and look for YouTube videos for additional learning on each topic, as this will help a lot!  If you put the time, your success would be unparalleled.

    Six months ago I started a ‘Boot Camp’ program in data analytics. The past six months have presented me with some of the greatest challenges I have faced in my academic career. My brain often hurt as I struggled to process complex coding algorithms completely unfamiliar to me. On many occasions I asked myself, “What am I doing here?” and “Why am I doing this?” but I only had to turn to the incredible support network provided by the course administrator, the instructor, the team of assistant instructors and my fellow course mates, and in every instance I was given all of the support and encouragement I needed to continue on.

    It’s truly incredible how much information was packed into six months. Every week there was a new program or language or library or module to tackle. The course began with work in Excel and moved to VBA. From there we delved straight into the python programming language and its various libraries, including primarily pandas and matplotlib. We developed APIs and went on to SQL. Our second term brought us to HTML and CSS. With front-end development completing our program’s journey we learned to code in javascript, d3 and visualize data using plotly. The entire process wrapped up with additional lectures, covering topics in big data, intelligent algorithms and machine learning, working with programs like PowerBI, Hadoop, and NLP.

    The course moved at an incredibly fast pace, and our regular meetings three times a week eventually began to merge into one seemingly long dataframe as we worked through our projects to reach our final day of presentations. At times I had to put my life on hold, and it will take me another six months to process everything more fully, but the tools are with me now, the foundation is laid, and I am prepared to take these skills with me on my journey going forward. I am now well-equipped to enter to the field with a complete set of analytics skills in my arsenal, armed with a Certificate in Data Analytics from the University of Toronto. It was a hard-earned effort, and I have no doubt in my mind that it will be well-worth the time and money I have invested into it. Thank you!

    Like many people, I felt stuck in my job. I was understimulated, felt underutilized, and not challenged. I knew I wanted to switch my career before I got further type casted. And I knew that I wanted to find a career that was in-demand and challenging. I enrolled in the Data Analytics Bootcamp at SCS because the curriculum was appealing and the class schedule worked with my work schedule. 

    I should preffice by saying that I had no idea how to code prior to entering this bootcamp; I had no idea what a for loop was, or how computing logic worked. I am currently 1 month from graduating and it is crazy how much I have learned from this bootcamp. So much so, that I can confidently apply for data positions because of how much this bootcamp has taught me and exposed me to. It not only taught me different syntaxes and how to use various libraries, but more importantly, it taught me how to learn (i.e. look up documentation and stack overflow). Between the super helpful TAs, the amazing classrooms, great instructor (shout out to Piro!), and approachable admin, this bottcamp was definitely one of the best decisions I have made in terms of my career.
