Graduated yesterday with multiple offers, and doubled my income after taking a job in my home town as a software engineer.
My experience here was awesome. Ben really knew his stuff, and had a way of teaching that resonated well with the way we all learned.
I used the G.I Bill, and the free housing made it possible for me to come while still affording to keep my family home and housed.
Pro Tip: Listen to what Mary (The outcomes coordinator) tells you to do in your job search. It works. I'm proof.
There is definitely an element of doing stuff outside the curricculum, but I expected that. (there's no way anyone can learn everything about development in three months if all you do is the lecture stuff). Put in the work and you'll be fine. Those of us who embraced this did extremely well. It's safe to say that if you aren't that kind of person, you might want to think of making a different career switch.
Housing was super nice, no complaints there at all. It was a cut above my place back home.
If you're on the fence, make the leap. I'm beyond glad I did. Before this, I was a security guard working the graveyard shift for barely above minimum wage. I wish I was kidding.
No regrets at all.
1 star down for poor housing. Highly recommend the school if you are from Utah & don’t intend to stay in the free housing provided. I came from Arizona & was told that it was safe to park at the streets on my first day, but my car was broken into and my things were stolen. I was also involved in a hit-&-run while riding a bicycle as well. Very sketchy neighbourhood. Complaints were made but unresponsive.
Apart from housing, V school have the absolute best instructors, mentors and career advisors. They are willing to spend extra time and effort to explain the complexity related to coding rather than just asking you to Google. Instructor Ben makes sure that you understand the materials that are being taught, and explains the logic behind coding in a way that even a beginner can understand. The school is also open to students on the weekends as well, and sometimes instructors will be there to assist students who need extra help. I truly appreciate the instructors who have helped me learn so much in these 3 months. I could not have done it without the support of the instructors, and my classmates.
If I were to retake the course, I would have stayed somewhere else & attend school in-person so that I won’t have to worry about my car and maximize my ability to learn, especially since it is an intensive bootcamp.
V School teaches you the latest and most popular technologies and you get to have a few projects under your belt to show to potential employers.
You learn a lot of material in a short amount of time, so you need to put in the extra work outside of the classroom on your own time to really be successful, but the instructors will always be there if you get stuck.
The staff and instructors are some of the nicest and coolest people you'll meet.
I would not be where I am now with my level of knowledge without V School and I'm glad to have made this investment in my career!
I recently graduated with V-School’s February Cohort and have nothing but positive things to say about this school. Their entire staff are amazing people who ACTUALLY care about their students. No only do they care if you are learning, but they care on a personal level how you are doing. If you need anything at all, Chelbie is always available to help or listen.
What helped the most was having instructors who were always willing to help, even if it meant staying late or coming on the weekends for a review session. Ben, who was our main instructor, took the time to get to know us and invested his own time to ensure we were learning and also listened to feedback to see if there were areas he could improve. On top of this, he was like a personal cheerleader and support system for us. Bob, who also taught, would spend time with us on the weekend if we wanted an additional study group or review session.
In addition to the instructors, V School attracts other students and people who overall want to improve and learn. This created a perfect environment for growth without feeling dumb or intimidated.
Lastly, the languages and technology V school teaches is up to date and they were always speaking to the community and staying up on news to see if their programs would prepare someone for a career right away. Sariah provides weekly industry and career updates, as well as helps you find a job. They also are reviewed and work with Adobe for the Digital Academy Program.
If you want to learn to code, go through V School. I have made friends and built a family here that I can rely on throughout my career and wouldn’t have wished it any other way. :)
V School was the best decision I have made in my life, career wise. I was able to avoid the time and debt of a major college degree, and get started earning real world working experience. I am a bit of an exception to the rule as I was able to procure my first post school job starting the Monday after classes ended, however, I believe anyone who has a drive to make it and push themselves to be better will get the skills necessary to go out and become a powerhouse in the workforce.
Coding Campus is a great bootcamp. Although it had its flaws when I went and I don't feel like the instruction was the best it could have been, it prepared me and taught me what it takes to make a career in software development. (Since I attended they have worked out the kinks in their instruction) The instructors were very knowledgeable and the focus on getting you job-ready was very helpful. I was able to find a Web Development position after graduation, and for that I am grateful. The bootcamp is not easy, but it's worth it if you want to make a career in software development.
100% worth it, and would do it again.
This tools and languages was very useful for my programing life and I think will be like that in my economic life.
I'm about 3 weeks in but am very satisfied so far. My expectations going in were to learn valuable and relevant coding skills, build a network, and create a professional portfolio and resume that will guarantee employment afterwards. I have no doubt that these will be fulfilled based on my progress so far. The projects are difficult but manageable. There is plenty of assistance. The curriculum is clearly geared toward building a job-ready portfolio/resume. It is clear that the academic advisors care about your individual career path. I don't expect to be given everything, but am impressed with the facilitation V School provides. Highly recommended. I will post another review upon graduation.
They actually care that you learn the programs that they teach, and they will always take the time to teach you if you are falling behind. Weekends or holidays, it doesn't matter. If you ask them to help you out because you have a problem, they will do whatever they can to make sure that you are understanding the material.
I earned a degree from Brigham Young University in Communications (advertisign emphasis) and got to a point where I was simply tired of 1) promoting other people's great ideas (or even their terrible ideas) and 2) spending all my effort selling people things they didn't really need or want. I came to a point where I needed a change, and my previous interest and dabbling with code aligned perfectly with an opportunity that arose to attend the Coding Campus course.
The only reason I give the Curriculum (and hence the overall experience) one less star has to do with unexpected circumstances. A combination of changeups in the curriculum, one of our project's clients falling through, and my classmates starting to "check out" early led to a situation where the final week of class was less productive than we originally had anticipated. However, these factors don't seem to be the fault of Coding Campus as much as external factors that were out of their control.
I'm not working as a developer for Coding Campus' sister company Verisage, and although it's still difficult and my jounrey of learning is still very much at the beginning, when I look back at my knowledge prior to Coding Campus, I realize I alone would have never been able to spend the time and energy it takes to get my first job as a developer.
And that's what Coding Campus is all about - arming students with the knowledge and beginning experience they need to get a job as a developer.
It’s the curriculum and the community that shine at V School. While no 12-week course is a substitute for 1-2 years of experience, this curriculum provides a solid, professional-grade foundation for those seeking to make a career change.
The Instructors are knowledgeable and patient, and like everyone else in the V School community (including administration, career guidance, and V School alums) they have a genuine desire to support students and see them succeed.
v School helped me to change my life and I highly recommend this program to anyone looking at Bootcamps.
There is no substitue to the type of jumpstart that V school gave me. I was hesitant to spend money on school again as I had already received a 4 year degree, but this was so worth it. I have graduated from a program with a set of skills that are in-demand and valuable. The coursework is constantly being adapted and updated to current industry trends and practices, which was one of my big problems when taking tutorials. Along with learning a great deal in my 12 weeks, I am now apart of a community of fellow web developers that are warm and accepting.
Going into this program has been one of the best life decisions I have made.
I absolutely enjoyed learning how to code, this course has been extremely informative.
Also, the staff at V School are welcoming, helpful, friendly and always available to chat and ask questions if you need to.
I began my search for bootcamps not long before finding V School. I traveled from the east coast to Salt Lake City because they provided housing, were prepared to answer all of my questions, and reassured me that I was ready after completing my precourse project. I thoroughly enjoyed my time at V School. They are successful in creating a tight knit community of students and alumi. The provide access to the school space 24/7 which encouraged me to take full advantage of all they had to offer. Evenings and weekends were spent with current and former students learning coding and working on projects. They allow each cohort to . kind of mentor the next which was a definite plus! To be honest, you will get out of it what you put in. V School goes above and beyond to include you into the tech community within all of Utah and provides ample opportunity for you to grow as a developer. I would HIGHLY reccommend V School!
After more than 20 weeks of coding, finally I am v school graduate. The program that I was given was more intellectual than only being academic. This school with its curriculum and its instructors, with its style had altered my life to the better. Regarding the content of the course, I didn’t only learn how to code in java script and how to be a junior web-developer, but also how to have the problem-solving mentality, how to think logically and rationally, how to deal with everything as case and I get credits if I solve it, and how to get rid of all the fears. Also, regarding the way of teaching, this class thought me how to be dependent in my education and how to be committed to my education without having the stress of the grades and the stress of the exams. It taught me how to be not ashamed of having no idea about something I love to learn. The idea of vocational training and then certifying the students in Full Stack and making them eligible to work even if as freelancers amazed me and took me to the class every day at 6:00 pm though all the fatigue. It gave me hope and opened my eyes to a lot of change that needs to be done and can actually be done by commitment, patience, ambition, and creativity. This class is one of the best things that happened to me and I’m grateful that I had the chance to join this wonderful family.
V school for me as a personal review and my experience with them is a 5 star rated educational program where you learn how to think and become a real programmer and a better future developer and team member or leader. Its a family of production in all the ways
The addition of having housing arranged for me, was incredible, and one of the things that made V School the perfect choice. I didn’t have to worry about rent, or leases, or furnished/unfurnished. I just arrived in Salt Lake and had a place to stay and a transit pass to get around!
On the career front - V School will give you the tools you need to have a successful job hunt, and will support you fully in the job hunt process. They will arrange field trips to tech companies, have weekly tech industry speakers, and connect your with people in their social networks that might help you land that perfect job.
From day one V School has been the perfect choice, and I can’t possibly recommend them highly enough! This is a coding school that really does care about you and your progress towards an exciting new tech career!
I just started my 5th week, as a member of the February cohort, and so far I could not speak more highly of V School. I will reserve my full review of V School until i graduate, but as of right now my experience as been extremely positive.
THE STAFF/INSTRUCTORS - This is probably V-School's strongest suit. All of the instructors are extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. They all know the ins and outs of web development so any question you could possibly have, they will either know the answer or point you in the right direction. They never spoon feed you information, but at the same time are always ready and able to help when you are 100% stuck. As far as availability goes, they're always willing to help and take time oustide of class to answer questions.
THE CURRICULUM - Whoever designed this curriculum is a genius - it is very, very well put together. The exercises are all designed to strengthen the material you went over in lecture that day and all of the lecture material is up to date and easy to understand. The curriculum covers all the important information you could possibly need to know to truly UNDERSTAND the code you are writing and not just be a copy/paste coder.
DAY-TO-DAY - Every morning we start with warmups which are typically algorithmic in nature to get our brains in gear for the lectures and exercises that day. We typically receive multiple lectures every day by the instructors, each folllowed by its corresponding exercise. The exercises are intended to solidify the lecture material. At the end of the week, we are assigned larger projects that encompass and utilize several concepts to ensure we understand everything. The structure of our weeks so far, has really helped me gain a good grasp on the material.
CAREER DEVELOPMENT - We have received solid information, starting from week 2, regarding career development. On a weekly basis we attend lectures on things like resume and linkedin building. Additionally, we frequently have QA sessions with industry experts such as recruiters, UX engineers, ReactJS developers, and hiring partners. The amount of resources availale is honestly amazing.
MY ONLY REGRET SO FAR - is that I am a remote student. The free-housing that the in-person students get seems like an amazing perk and the ability to make friends with one another in person seems invaluable. That being said, everyone has been really friendly to me even as a remote student. My advice to anyone thinking about doing V school is to try and go IN PERSON if you can because I'm sure the experience is that much better. If remote is the only option though, like it was for me, then its still totally worth it.
To Be Continued when I finish...
I am in my fourth week of the program and I can truly say V School is freakin' great. The instructors are super dope and make sure you really get down the cirriculum. The learning environment is pretty cool and is really solid place to get work done, which allows you to really progress your coding skills. V School also provides you with job assistance and access to all of thier hiring networks, which was a real dealbreaker for me when choosing to attend. Overall, I've learned a great deal in the time I've been here, and I have confidence in finding a job after completing the course!

What was your background before you started at V School?
I’m 18 years old, and I came to Lebanon from Syria four years ago. I got my high school baccalaureate degree here in Lebanon, then I received a scholarship to study physics at the American University of Beirut. However, I’ve always wanted to learn how to code, so I started looking for other opportunities as well. A friend told me about V School– he had already applied and been accepted.
Can you share why you left Syria and moved to Lebanon?
By the time I was in 9th grade, the situation in Aleppo was terrible; we had two months without water, electricity, gasoline, or vegetables. So after I finished my 9th-grade exams, my father took us to visit my grandmother in Lebanon. When we tried to return home, the road back to Aleppo was closed and we haven’t been back since. We came to Lebanon with only one bag, so we started from zero.
Have you always been interested in learning about technology?
I’ve always been interested, yes. But in Syria, technology is not as well-known. In 7th grade, we started learning about technology, and how to use a computer. But using the internet in Syria is very expensive, very slow, and hard to get. Once we were in Lebanon, I started becoming more interested in technology. I found that I enjoyed breaking the computer, and working out how to fix it. And I started to watch video tutorials online.
Had you tried to learn any coding before you came to V School?
When did you start V School and why did you think it was a good choice for you?
I started at V School about 10 weeks ago. When I came for the first day, I saw how they treated each other like a family. In the class there are people who already knew some programming, and there are people who didn’t know anything. Whenever you ask for help, no one mocks you. I was afraid of people making fun of me because I didn’t know anything about programming, but V School accepts students with zero knowledge. On my first day, one of the TAs, Jamel, came and helped me. He encouraged me to keep attending class.
Being at V School has really had a positive impact on me. Right before V School, I was going through some difficult stuff, personally. But once I got to V School, I started getting out of my dorm room and meeting nice people, which has really changed my life. I was in a very tough situation and they changed me.
What was the application process like for V School?
We did an online test which involved a sequence and some problem solving. It was like a simplified IQ test. Then they sent through a message to say my application was successful and that I could attend the classes.
How many people are in your class? Does everyone come from different backgrounds?
There are about 40 students in my class. More than half of us are Syrians, but there is also a student from Iraq, Syrian Palestinians, Lebanese Palestinians, and the rest are Lebanese. There is a mix of women and men. I think I’m the youngest in the class. Most people are in their 20s and 30s. It’s really a beautiful mixture of people sharing our aims, our pains, and working together.
My classmate from Iraq was a medicine student who studied for three years but had to leave his country because of civil war. Because he cannot continue his medical education, he is getting another opportunity at V School. It’s different from his original major, but he feels like getting out of the house and attending tech classes might improve his life.
Who are your instructors? Is the course all taught in English?
Jacob is the main instructor; he’s American and explains everything in English. Haitham is our other instructor who translates everything Jacob says into Arabic. Then we have two TAs, Hiba and Jamel, who also help with translating. Some of my classmates don’t know any English, some people are bilingual, and some people are good at English.
It’s interesting because many other courses in Beirut require basic English language skills. But here at V School, my friend sitting beside me doesn’t know any English. V School’s slogan is that you can learn programming with an American instructor even if you don’t know English, which is awesome. Not knowing much English can be a problem for many Syrian refugees, even in universities. But Haitham and the TAs are always translating, so at V School it’s not a problem.
What is the learning experience like at V School — can describe a typical day?
We study six days per week for 20 weeks. On Monday to Thursday we attend class from 6pm to 9pm, and on Saturday we have class from 3pm to 8pm. They describe every single detail of the topic we’re learning; they go beyond the surface to describe and explain the depth of the programming language.
If there is a new concept to learn, Jacob explains the general idea first. Then he starts building simple code, and Haitham translates it to Arabic and explains it to others. Then Jacob asks us to build it on our computers. He gives us 10 minutes to write out the code on our computers, and see what happens. If we are struggling, then the TAs will help us. Jacob builds by adding methods to the code. At the end of the class, we get an assignment to do, and at the end of each week we have a project to do over the weekend and submit on Monday. The Project contains everything that we have learned that week.
What’s been your favorite project so far at V School?
I’m also working on my own project, which I think will be my final project. It’s an app for Syrian refugees. Many Syrians in Lebanon are not able to find work. When they contact local companies or try to work as freelancers, they don’t have the right skills. But if we look at the EU workforce, there is a growing demand for people with tech skills, and many jobs are going unfilled because not enough people have the skills, and the people who do are demanding high wages. So we are building an app to connect refugees with companies outside of Lebanon to work as freelancers. We are also launching a learning center to teach refugees digital skills like e-marketing, design, and coding, which will be located near the refugee camps in northern Lebanon. We will introduce refugees and underprivileged youth in Lebanon to our application. We’re hoping to launch in the summer.
What has been your biggest challenge so far in learning to code?
Some days, I’ve felt like I wanted to cry. Sometimes there are specific things about coding that you don’t understand, so you have to look for the answer. But when the code doesn’t work, and you start to debug the error and you can’t find it, you don’t want to have to ask for help. You want to depend on yourself, and that’s hard at the beginning. But now I’m not struggling with anything. The instructors and TAs also teach us how to Google things – some of us didn’t know to research things online. Jacob and Haitham have taught us how to problem solve.
What types of careers can V School graduates have when they graduate?
Mainly, you can work as a remote freelancer. The Arabian Gulf area requires a lot of web developing. We can find jobs– not necessarily full-time jobs– as web developers, code writers, or problem solvers. The logic we are learning behind the programming is much more important than the coding itself. It’s the logic of thinking about all problems in life.
What are your plans for the future? Will you stay in Beirut?
I am a first year student at the American University of Beirut right now. I want to continue my studies in nuclear research, so I will eventually have to apply to study abroad because I’ll need to be near a nuclear physics research center. But until then I will work part time as a web developer while I continue my university studies.
Why did you decide to study nuclear physics?
I originally applied for university as a medicine student, but I hated it. There are already a lot of doctors around the world, but nuclear is the future of the human race. Nuclear is important for power stations and energy in general. I’m double majoring in political science, and then I’ll continue with one year of international law.
Do you think eventually you’ll be able to combine your coding skills with your physics skills?
Of course! In the nuclear physics industry, you need technology. I can’t put myself in a situation where I don’t understand what a computer scientist is talking to me about. These coding skills are essential for my career.
With my nuclear physics, plus political science, plus coding studies, I feel I can reach a very good place in the world. I don’t want to be a regular student who graduates from a university with only a degree. I want to be somebody. I want people to say “Sendus did that.”
Do you think that coding bootcamps like V School could be an effective way to train other refugees?
Yes. Look at Germany after World War II: they didn’t have many functioning schools or universities, so the Germans started what they called “community learning,” where a group of people teach their skills to another group of people. Just like code schools.
It’s great that you can learn a whole programming language in 20 weeks, which can get you a freelancing job, when university graduates aren’t even able to get a job. One of my Syrian classmates can’t attend university, because he has to go to work to support his family, so attending classes at V School part-time and getting a job in 6 months is really awesome for him.
For the 60% of Syrians in the class who can’t afford university, V School is a great way for them to learn, and find work. One of the TAs, Jamil, was a student at V School, and now he is teaching at V School. I know that the other students and I will also find work.
Do you have anything else to add about your experience?
In addition to the skills, V School has been beneficial to me psychologically, socially, intellectually and educationally. I attend class for three hours per day, and I have a lot of friends who are supporting me, working together, doing group work, and ready to help each other. What companies like V School are doing is really amazing. They are giving really amazing chances to people who have lost hope, and in turn, I’m able to launch my learning center and help more people.
It’s that time again! A time to reflect on the year that is coming to an end, and a time to plan for what the New Year has in store. While it may be easy to beat yourself up about certain unmet goals, one thing is for sure: you made it through another year! And we bet you accomplished more than you think. Maybe you finished your first Codecademy class, made a 30-day Github commit streak, or maybe you even took a bootcamp prep course – so let’s cheers to that! But if learning to code is still at the top of your Resolutions List, then taking the plunge into a coding bootcamp may be the best way to officially cross it off. We’ve compiled a list of stellar schools offering full-time, part-time, and online courses with start dates at the top of the year. Five of these bootcamps even have scholarship money ready to dish out to aspiring coders like you.Continue Reading →
