    I am currently enrolled in The Coding Boot Camp at UT Austin in the full stack developer program, and I'm about half way through. When I started the boot camp, I had prior coding experience in front-end languages like HTML, CSS and some JavaScript. I wanted to enroll in a boot camp to further my knowledge and gain confidence. I am so glad I did! The activities are hands-on and really help you gain experience that you need to know. The instructor and TAs are all very knowledgable and ready to help. To get the most out of the boot camp, you really need to put in time outside of the class to solidify the concept, test and debug the code, like a real developer. Overall, I highly suggest this boot camp to any who are looking to learn to code and are ready for a challenge!

    This program has been and continues to be a wonderful experience. The instructors are very knowledgeable on the topics as well as industry trends. As a class we have covered a broad range of information in a brief amount of time. This class is challenging with a full time work scheudle but speaking from expereince, it can be done. A suggestion to future students; look into online resources for graphic design princples as well as coding basics dealing with CSS/HTML and JavaScript. I came in with no experience on these topics, I am still doing well in the class, but having some background knowlege would have been useful. Once again wonderful program, would highly recommed to anyone interested in pursuing UX/UI.

    My name is Yared Shewarade who is originally from Ethiopia and currently, I am living in Austin, Texas. I have been working as Data Manager for Tufts University- ENGINE research project. My passion was to be a professional Data Analyst. I was looking for a great school that can soak me up with knowledge and skills. Finally, I got a very great school that is the University of Texas at Austin (UT). I am glad I choose the University of Texas at Austin for Data Analytics and Visualization program.  I have carried very valuable skills for life. It is a very great school for teaching and preparing students for any job, challenges, innovative and cutting edge. I had the best education and experience of my life. Their education system is excellent, the curriculum is fantastic, and the career services is exciting. The instructor and TA’s are the most excellent, experienced, knowledgeable, caring and they are a good value. They were always making sure you understood what they were teaching you before moving on.  Student Success Manager, Career Services (Career Director and Profile Coach) are extremely accessible and helpful something not to be found anywhere. They are always there to support you in your job journey and if you need any help.

    I recommend UT to everybody who wants to make a difference in Data Analytics and Visualization. It is a very great school and has a wonderful curriculum with best career service that is ideal.

    My name is Shay, i am 30 years old, one day i decided i am going to be a programmer because i love the idea you can create things from scratch by writing a code, so i watched tons of youtube videos, tutorials, guides, and i even started to write few lines of code by my self...it felt amazing, i felt i have to take it to the next level because i realized no matter how many hours of videos ill watch or how many quizzes ill do i am that type of person who needs to sit in a class with a real teacher and real people, so i started my searches about what is a boot camp and how does it work, and of course what would be the damage(money), i grew up in Israel and still struggling with my English and my broken accent  and i thought it would be a problem, today, after halfway into the course i feel thankful that i choose learning programming at UT Austin boot camp (they have a branch at Houston) 
    The Instructor is very intelligent and you can tell he is one of a kind, the TA's are so helpful, trust me while you are going through this complicated path "the programming world", you want educated people around you, in class you are making a lot of connections you get to know different people with different backgrounds.
    before i signed up the Bootcamp i knew to write like 40% HTML and a little bit of CSS, today i know to write 
    -HTML
    -CSS
    -Bootstrap
    -Materialize
    -JAVASCRIPT
    -JQUERY
    -API
    -JASON / AJAX
    -Node.js
    -Express.js
    -mySQL

    many times it wasn't easy, you need to spend hours on Homeworks and redoing activities, but i learned one important thing, in life whatever easy to do has no value, because its easy to do, everyone can do it, whatever hard to do has a value, because its hard to do, not everyone can do it.

    I am only halfway to the end of this boot camp, so there is a lot more to learn, guys...its a life-changing move, just do it.

    I enrolled in this bootcamp because I own a web based business but knew nothing about coding.  As my business grew I knew that I needed to learn how to code.  I began the bootcamp with no prior coding experience.  After trying to teach myself, I realized that the bootcamp was the way to go.

    The resources to teach yourself are out there on the internet but it's hard to know where to begin.  The bootcamp curriculum is laid out in a way that gradually teaches you the building blocks of programming with the end game of being able to teach yourself effectively.  I think of the bootcamp as a way to overcome the initial learning-curve-road-block that was holding me back.  

    I am extremely pleased with the program.  I got exactly what I needed out of it, got over the road block and now I am capable of pursing whichever coding direction that I need to. For example, for my final project I built a website in a completely different language than what we learned.  We learned JavaScript, but the bootcamp taught me how to learn, so I learned Ruby and did my final project in Ruby.  

    The bootcamp requires a lot of time & effort.  The pace is fast and the homework is hard.  Between commuting, class time, homework and further study I easily spent 40 hours a week.  And I still wish that I had more time to devote. I highly recommend doing the day's activities before class instead of during class. Immerse yourself. Listen to podcasts. Read industry news.  

    You get what you put in.  All graduates are not equal.  Put in the time and you'll get what you need to out of the program.  

    The teaching staff for my class was exceptional. I enjoyed getting to know the other students and learning with them.  I would recommend this program to anyone interested in learning how to code. While I did not pursue the career counseling opportunities, I do believe them to be effective.

    I am a graduate from the UT Austin Data Analytics and Visualization bootcamp and I am very glad that I made the decision to take this bootcamp. The instructors and the support from TA's and everyone else on the staff is top-notch. 

    • The curriculum is well planned and deals with real-world, business related topics.
    • By the end of the bootcamp you will have a portfolio, with examples ranging from custom visualizations to machine learning.
    • Support from the stafff as well as tutoring available.
    • Cover topics in Python and Javascript which are in high demand.
      • D3.js, Leaflet, Pandas, Matplotlib
      • API's, JSON, Flask apps
      • Tensorflow, Keras
    • Career Services does their best to help students network they were consistently reaching out with different meetups and job openings in the area.

    The course is not easy. You will need to have enough time to dedicate to homework and activities, but, if you do your work and trust the process, you will come out with the tools needed to start your career as a data analyst/developer. I am very thankful for the whole staff and the work they put in. 

    Shoutout to everyone in the program!

    If you are prepared to spend the out-of-class hours needed to really understand the fundamentals of what they're teaching, the Full Stack Boot Camp is phenomenal.

    That cannot be stressed enough--there's no way any boot camp could teach you everything you need to know about full stack development, but having direct access to such amazing instructors, TAs, and student success personnel several times per week is incredibly helpful.  When you look back after graduation, the sheer amount of material you cover from start to finish is staggering, but all of it is delivered at a pace that keeps you constantly challenged, yet never overwhelmed or unable to make progress.

    It starts out relatively simple, and quickly ramps up into concepts that both frustrate and educate in equal measure.  But if you put in the time to really understand why you're struggling (and use the resources available to you--TAs, office hours, instructor questions, etc.), the material that the course teaches will help you in every area of development.

    Personally, I used it as a transitionary program to move from the technical department to the development department at my company. I was in development meetings by the second month of the course, and I already understood the concepts of what my development team was speaking about, and wasn't lost on explanations or implementation of the application...and I still had four months of the Boot Camp to go!  The things you learn right out of the gates are 100% relative to current web application development, and the staff does an amazing job of attempting to adjust the curriculum when they are notified of weaknesses.

    That validated everything they were advertising, in my opinion...I already knew enough to work as a functioning developer at roughly the 1/3 mark of the course.  The lessons got more complex and we introduced new libraries on a weekly basis from there, but overall, it was extremely beneficial, and exactly what I was looking for.

    My only recommendation would be to allow a little more flexibility in parts of the curriculum (perhaps do not use one specific templating engine, but allow the students to choose from the multitude of them that are out there, for example), but I could see how that could quickly go off the rails with TAs and instructors that are already operating at max capacity with the current libraries that it uses.

    I have already recommended the course to some co-workers who have asked about making a similar transition, and will continue to do so in the future.

    This program will take you from 0 to a 100 in no time the phase is super fast but the instructor and the TA's will make sure you keep up, the study plan updates in a daily basis, Jim (the instructor) is engaged in real life technologies and will drop invaluable knowledge on many aspects of this field, you will feel that he is concerned in your evolution to the next levels, sometimes you will feel like he is a human Wikipedia for web developement, UI, and UX. I highly recommend this program as long as you are willing to put the effort. It carries a big name with big results.

    When I heard about UT Data Analytics Boot Camp I got very excited because of its flexible schedule and comprehensive-up-to date curriculum. 
     
    I came from applied industrial mathematics background which requires lots of coding. I felt like I had to improve the skill sets that will lead me to find a better job in the data-driven industries. So, I took T/Th/S classes and I enjoyed them all very much. 
     
    UT Data Analytics boot camp offers you everything to improve yourself. If you are a hard worker and self-driven individual, this boot camp is just right for you. 
     
    They will teach you Python, JavaScript, D3.js, Leaflet.js, Machine Learning, HTML/CSS, and more based on the demands of the data-driven industry. 
     
    The projects and the homework are challenging but also helps you to improve yourself. 
     
    The instructional team is top-notch. They know what they are doing. The instructors Jeremy, Robin, and TAs Ted, Joe, Neelesh, and all other were very helpful and friendly.
