    Data Analytics and Visualization

    I felt that the Data Analytics and Visualization boot camp at UT Austin is a very well designed, comprehensive program that covers the Data Analytics field well and is designed with data industry's needs in mind. 

    It covers over 25 different tools, technologies, and languages. Each topic starts with simple code/examples and builds up to difficult problems. The pace is fast but TA's are always there to help you as soon as you face an issue, during the class. The lectures are recorde...

    Feedback for new and potential students

    I wanted to move from academia to industry so that I can work as a part of a team on a daily basis. Because I hadn't had prior experience in industry and took a 1-year break in 2016, I couldn't easily land a developer position in early 2017.

    I decided that I wanted to change my career path and get into web development.  My background was electronics and I wanted to do more software where I could could use creative problem solving instead of "make this thing that's broken work like it used to." I looked around and read a lot of reviews for numerous boot camps and in the end, I picked this one because:

    Life Changing Career Move

    I applied for the UT Coding Bootcamp over a year ago because I wanted a career move, something that would be intellectually challenging and would constantly involve problem solving. I figured development would be a good move and being fresh out of college it was looking like I would have to go back to school for another 2 years to get a bachelor's or master's in computer science. That is when I stumbled upon the "educational bootcamp" world. After looking at a few other bootcamp schools, I...

I wanted to transition more into development and still wanted to keep my full-time job.

    If you have no idea where to start in the world of web development, this program is great for teaching you the basics and learning some industry-used technology.

In projects especially, challenge yourself because these will be seen by potential employers.

    I 100% recommend. I went in blindfolded and had no idea what to expect from this course. I have zero knowledge in the IT world and wanted a challenge. This course is so well put together and its materials are very beneficial. During bootcamp I learned about Penetration Testing, Network Security, Networking, Linux, Ethical Hacking, Cryptography and other useful material. Please consider taking this course!
