- Full Stack Web Development- 8/30/2021Chris • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development - Part-Time • Campus: Salt Lake City • Verified via LinkedInI began my teaching myself some programming languages but quickly realized that I didn't have a lot of direction. There is an infinite amount of information on the web and no clear path on where to begin. I chose the University of Utah Full Stack Web Development bootcamp based on the reviews and career services support offered.
This bootcamp proved to be invaluable to my growth as a web developer. The amount of support offered is incredible, from the instructors, TA's, tutors and 24/7 Ask BCS learning assistants. You never feel like you are going at it alone. Learning how to code is hard, sometimes very hard. However, the support that the bootcamp offers, in addition to learning along with your classmates is great!
I would recommend this bootcamp to anyone who needs structure and direction. It is rigorous so be prepared to spend 20-30+ hours per week outside of class learning. And understand that the learning doesn't stop when you graduate.
Response From: Boot Camp Team of University of Utah Professional Education Boot CampsTitle: Community TeamThursday, Sep 02 2021Amazing, Chris! We're thrilled to hear you had a positive boot camp experience and not only benefited from the support of our entire instructional team but also of your classmates. Like you said, the program will require extensive time outside and inside of the classroom so we commend all your hard work. Congratulations on graduating and thank you for your review! We wish you all the best in your future coding endeavors.
- Cybersecurity boot camp- 3/26/2021Robert Fisher • Applicant • Course: Cybersecurity - Part-Time • Campus: Salt Lake City • Verified via LinkedInCourse was very helpful and educational. Instructors and teacher aids were always willing to help and make sure the material was understood. When I signed up for the course I was promised assistance with a job search. This has proven quite fruitless. While my career counselor is awesome and very helpful......there are literally no cybersecurity jobs posted on the job board. If there are any, which is rare, they are usually out of state. I spent the 12k thinking I'd have a career in Cybersecurity. While I appreciate all that was taught to me, the job search is thus far fruitless with little to go off of. They did offer assistance and provide valuable feedback on my resume to get me employer-ready, but with no jobs posted on the board and no leads given to the career counselors, it's not very helpful at this moment. This could change and I am hopeful it will. You will learn much, but the Cybersecurity job board is currently non-existent. I have stayed in contact with some of my classmates and many of them are in the same situation. Spent 12000 and still at the same job they were at when we all started 1 year ago. Hopefully, this changes. You need to get some actual cybersecurity jobs posted and get your career counselors some leads. Until that changes, I would not recommend signing up.

We had a great learning experience. I had a great teaching team includin TAs who has many years of experience in web development and ux design. The fellow students were motivating and it was all like a team effort for the past 6 months. I learnt the user research methods, usability, ideation, wireframing and prototyping. Actually understood to how to consider users and stakeholders when designing a product and thus giving a successful product.

- Full stack web development- 1/18/2021Jon Jessee • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development - Part-Time • Campus: Salt Lake City • Verified via LinkedInI saw an ad for this bootcamp about 2 months after completing my military service and saw it as a perfect fit since I did not want to return to school full time but also wanted valuable experience that would help me land a good job. For any other veterans, they do also accept the GI bill which was immensely helpful. Even though the course can be rather intense at times with the fast paced learning, it was a great experience and I learned a lot more than I could have imagined at the outset. The instructional staff was absolutely incredible, they were always available to help me with any of my homework or projects and were very knowledgeable in each subject we covered. Additionally, the career services team was exceptional and attending their optional meetings really helped me develop the materials and skills that I needed to feel more prepared for the job search. I would highly recommend this program to anyone who needs a flexible schedule and wants to learn a lot while developing a solid work portfolio.
Response From: Boot Camp Team of University of Utah Professional Education Boot CampsTitle: Community TeamThursday, Jan 21 2021We appreciate your review, Jon! Thank you for choosing our program to make a significant career change. Like you mentioned, this is a fast-paced course, one that will require extensive time and hard work. It's great to hear you took advantage of the available resources and reached out to both our instructional and career services team for additional assistance. Congratulations on graduating and best of luck as you move forward!
- Full Stack Web Development- 11/9/2020Dilan Li • Graduate • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development - Part-Time • Campus: Salt Lake City • Verified via GitHubI had a very good experience with this bootcamp. The instructor and TA were very helpful and knowledgeable, the class had a friendly learning environment. There were a lot of times that our instructor stayed after hours just to sort out the problems the classmates had. I graduated from this program feeling confident about my skills and if there are something I do not know to to approach, I now feel confident that I have the skills to find the answer. The three group projects we had during the bootcamp was also helpful in terms of working with other developers to build a larger project. The pace for this course is a bit on the faster end but therefore left me a lot of materials to learn on my own after graduation.
Response From: Boot Camp Team of University of Utah Professional Education Boot CampsTitle: Community TeamFriday, Nov 13 2020Amazing, Dilan! We're thrilled you had a positive student experience and found our entire instructional team to be knowledgeable. It's great to hear you feel confident in your newfound web development skills and benefited from collaborating on group projects. Congratulations on successfully completing the program, we truly appreciate your review! We wish you continued success in all your future endeavors.
- Full Stack Web Dev. Boot Camp- 8/7/2020Natalie • Student • Course: Full Stack Web Development - Part-Time • Campus: Salt Lake City • Verified via GitHubThis boot camp was very educational. I was brand-new to the majority of topics being taught but was still able to learn the curriculum quickly. The composition of the course is fast-paced, even for part-time students. This can make it challenging, however, the free tutoring offered is extremely beneficial to your learning experience. There is quite a lot of support offered if you need to take advantage.
The dynamic of the course was set up in such a way that accounted for almost every possible obstacle that could come up. I was not supposed to take this boot camp online but ended up having to make the switch due to extenuating circumstances (thanks, COVID 👍). Although the learning experience was altered at times, I still gained the same knowledge as I would have in the classroom.
My primary instructor was fantastic and really made a difference to the class's success. Each class was equipped with two teaching assistants and they also worked very hard to make sure everyone was understanding the material. The class also has a personal student manager who acts as a point of contact for all students. Overall, this structure is most benefitting to students because they have multiple outlets for assistance if needed. They check in with you personally to ensure all students are having the best experience and succeeding to the fullest.
I did not personally partake in the Job Assistance portion of the course but I did notice that it was highly detailed and organized. I imagine it would be helpful to anyone who wanted to use that opportunity. Even without this unique resource, you still finish the course with a profoundly better understanding of web development and plenty of other skills associated with it. I would recommend this course to anyone who wishes to gain web development skills quickly but still learn enough to complete a wide range of projects afterward.
Response From: Boot Camp Team of University of Utah Professional Education Boot CampsTitle: Community TeamMonday, Aug 10 2020Way to go, Natalie! We truly appreciate you sharing your boot camp experience. You're completely right that this is a fast-paced program and as such can be hard to keep up. Like you noted, though, taking advantage of all the available resources, including tutoring, can help you stay ahead and understand complex concepts.
Your cohort did experience a disruption due to COVID-19 that resulted in your studies transitioning online for the health and safety of all students. We're thrilled to know this unplanned change was delivered successfully and that you benefited from our online format.
Our program is designed to enable student success throughout every step of the way, so we're glad this resonated with you. We take pride in being responsive and fostering a collaborative classroom environment.
We look forward to helping you close out the boot camp and commend all the hard work you've dedicated thus far!
- Bootcamp review- 12/29/2019Jeremy Atwood • Junior developer • Graduate • Course: Full Stack Web Development - Part-Time • Campus: Salt Lake City • Verified via LinkedIn
When I attended this bootcamp it was a great experience, and I meet a lot of people that have greatly helped me in my persuits, and learning experience. The staff and advisors were an amazing resource to have and I highly recommend that people utilize their assistance. I wish I would have utilized the assistance much earlier on in my class, because with out that assisstance I would not have been able to graduate.

- I'm a new person- 10/26/2019Jared Wight • Full-Stack TA and Tutor • Graduate • Course: Full-Stack Flex - Part-Time • Campus: Salt Lake City • Verified via GitHub
The title says it all. I have worked food jobs my whole life and because of this bootcamp, my salary has doubled. The instructor Jonathan is super invested in helping and encouraging everyone further thier career. After putting my heart and soul into this bootcamp, I feel confident I understand and code in JS and other web techs as well or better than someone who has a degree and years of experience.
The camp did great at introducing us to new material without sacrificing lots of time and busy work like colleges.

- Stellar Support and Course- 7/31/2019Daniel • Graduate • Verified via LinkedIn
Not only was this course recommended by multiple people to me, but it was already in partnership with a well-respected University. I had Q as a teacher for the majority of the course and I absolutely loved his mentorship and industry experience. The same was true with all of the instructors within the course. Plus, the TA's were just as helpful and friendly. I feel like I have already gained an extremely strong network.
On top of this, having access to the entire career services team over the course and after into employment I felt like everyone always had my back. Their industry knowledge and support definitely helped me flourish.
Response From: Boot Camp Team of University of Utah Professional Education Boot CampsTitle: Community TeamThursday, Aug 01 2019Thanks so much, Daniel! We're thrilled you benefited from our entire boot camp team's ongoing support and encouragement—we also think Q is pretty amazing. It's great to hear you had a positive student experience and developed a strong network. Congratulations on successfully completing the course, we're rooting you on in all that you do!
- Great Course!!!- 7/29/2019Kayla • Web Developer • Graduate • Course: Full-Stack Flex - Part-Time • Campus: Salt Lake City • Verified via LinkedIn
I took the Web Development Boot Camp through the University of Utah and I have nothing but great things to say about my experience. The course was 6 months and there is no doubt about it that 6 months was brutal and challenging and broke my brains some days, but it is a boot camp and I went into the program expecting that. Despite the hardwork and late nights of studying and coding, I loved it! I loved that I was learning exactly what I needed to to give me a career that I would love. I can not say enough good things about how supportive and engaging the instuctors, student support staff, and TA's were. They were always so willing to help you with an issue or find a new way to explain a challenging concept. In all honesty I would say that it was the best academic support I have ever had. On top of all that I genuinely enjoyed the course, made new friends and built my network and now I am a full-stack developer and that is all thanks to this amazing course that helped me get there. I would recommend it to any person who has a desire to learn coding and is willing to put in the effort and time :D
Response From: Boot Camp Team of University of Utah Professional Education Boot CampsTitle: Community TeamTuesday, Jul 30 2019Way to go, Kayla! Like you mentioned, this is a challenging course and will require an extensive amount of time to mastering the material both inside and outside of the classroom, so we commend all your hard work. It's great to hear you felt supported by our entire boot camp team and made lasting connections with your classmates. We truly appreciate your review and recommendation. Congratulations on graduating and all the best in your future endeavors!
- Full Stack from Zero To Hero- 2/22/2019Khris Watters • Developer / Systems Administrator • Graduate • Course: Full-Stack Flex - Part-Time • Campus: Salt Lake City • Verified via GitHub
The U of U full Stack Coding Boot Camp is a great solution for anyone who wants to learn coding. As it is a full stack course you learn everything that you need to run the front end and the back end of a website which opens some fun and interesting doors into non-web developer uses.
This course is a very fast paced. you will spend 13-17 hours in class every week, your homework will take between 4-20 hours to complete every week, and as for myself I spent 5-10 more hours studding supplemental material for the course. So, given the pace of the class you really cannot fall behind and must have a lot of time available. That said it’s worth it.
One note on Job Assistance provided by the Course. When I took the class the career services portion was not very good. Trilogy and the U of U have spent considerable time and effort making it better and now when you come out assuming you do all that is recommended you will be very competitive.

- Web Development- 2/22/2019Liliana Quinley • Graduate • Course: Full-Stack Flex - Part-Time • Campus: Salt Lake City • Verified via LinkedIn
I was thinking over and over on how to Started Bootcamp since I had Zero knowledge on computer science. It turned out on an amazing experience itself. I learned so much in so little time. The instructors and TAs care a lot about students, they were very helfulf and understand that not all of us were able to process the information in the same way. It was may times were I was lost but fortunatelly there is a lot of help with the program. It is very important to meet the homework deadlines to not feel overwhelmed at the end of the program. It is very rewarding to see all hard work is pay off and reflected on my final project. Then I could realize how far I could go in just 24 weeks.
