      If you are looking to break into software development, I feel like this course is an excellent option.  The instructors, TAs and student success manager all seem genuinely interested in seeing the students succeed.  No one sugar coats the reality of this course and field - you must put in the hard work to succeed.  However, this course provides the instruction and structure for those who want to put in the hard work and become a software developer.

      The course was structured, pretty good lesson plan, a mental challenge and a coding workout.  Started good, engaging in the middle, but the last 3 to 5 weeks were very disappointing.  It was as if the curriculum director took personal time off with c#(c-sharp).  Students and instructors were both dog paddling in the deep end, barely covering anything useful.  This was really the only disappointment.  We still have one more lecture and final projects.

      I would recommend the course to anyone interested in a career in application development.

      Thank you for your insight, Robert! We're happy to hear you're enjoying the boot camp structure.

      Based on your feedback, we understand you would have liked to cover C# more comprehensively. During your cohort, we hosted a special "regional" week for module four of our curriculum. Based on extensive student input, our instructional team's insight, and regional demands, we restructured our lesson plans around this popular language. We understand that not all teaching styles will resonate with all students, but we pride ourselves on teaching students how to learn so that they can build a strong foundational skill set to master additional languages and frameworks following graduation. Our course material is constantly being optimized to align with market demands, so we appreciate your feedback.

      It's our goal for all students to complete the program feeling equipped with the knowledge and resources they need to be successful. If you would like, please reach out to us at (615) 200-1138 to discuss any other ways we can assist you at this time. We commend all the hard work you have dedicated thus far and are rooting you on toward graduation!

      Before this bootcamp, I was taking online video courses on the basics of front end web development and putting in around 10-15 hours a week, and getting some real skills that felt like I could actually take this hobby and make it a career. All of those hopes went down the drain when I saw what employers are asking, even of an entry level junior dev. 

      I wanted to find a bootcamp that would enhance my front end skills and drag me out of my comfort zone and into the scary world of full stack development.

      And boy was it uncomfortable. In the best way possible.

      Looking back 6 months and seeing the breadth of knowledge that myself and my fellow developers have gained, I can say without hesitation that this bootcamp was the right decision for me. 

      Despite the financial and employment hesitations I had before committing to this class, I am coming out on the other side confident that I have real marketable value and will be able to make a fun and fulfilling career out of web development. 

      If you are considering this or any other bootcamp, know that for every hour I spent in class, I spent two or thee outside grinding on homework, projects and additional content. It is difficult to balance work, life, class and homework. It is frustrating at times. You will have doubts. But if development is something you can spend hours doing and still don't want to quit the next day, then take the dive. 

      I'm so thankful that I did.

      Shout outs to all of the teaching staff, both instructors and TAs. They led us through a difficult and jam packed course with a sense of humor and humility that kept us grounded.

      I toyed with the idea of applying to a coding bootcamp for the better part of 2 years before I came across marketing materials for the Full-Stack Web Development Bootcamp at Vanderbilt. Finally, with the newfound responsibilities of fatherhood and some encouragement from my family, I took the plunge. 

      It was the right decision. Without a doubt. I'd say that I wished I had started a bootcamp sooner...but it wouldn't have been this one. 

      I came into the bootcamp at Vanderbilt with a career history primarily composed of filmmaking, acting, and photography. No academic background in computer science or the like. The Full-Stack bootcamp was organized and taught in such a way that I was brought up to speed despite the lack of formal training. 

      If you're considering a coding bootcamp, I cannot recommend this program highly enough. Every part of the process has been excellently handled, from enrollment and administration to impending graduation (just three weeks away!). Instructors are knowledgeable, professional, and eager to help, as are the TAs who assist them.

      They are there to help when you need it -- and you WILL need it. Make no mistake, this course is doable and 100% worth it, but it is a challenge. There will be times when you feel like you have no idea what you're doing. But the instructional staff and Student Success Manager will help you get through it, if you're willing to put in the work on your end. 

      Finally, what really sold me on it when I enrolled was the Career Services team. I'm just now getting really into the weeds with Career Services as graduation approaches, but I can already vouch that they are truly there to get to know your needs for the job search and help you navigate it. 

      All in all, the Vanderbilt bootcamp has changed my entire life for the better and is helping me move into a totally new career field in a way and pace that I could not have done on my own. It's hard work, but if you want to make a big change, that's what it takes. Take the plunge.

      This Bootcamp course has opened an entirely new world for me. After spending 5+ years in the automotive industry, I am about to embark on a brand new chapter of my life in a brand new industry (new to me).  During my time in the Development Bootcamp, I've learned I have quite the knack for network and application security. I'm now contemplating taking the cybersecurity course as I love the way the program is set up. 

      The Bootcamp itself is extremely fast-paced and not for the faint of heart. This course will push you to your limits and test everything you think you know about yourself. If an aggressively fast-paced program is what you like, You will love this program. It is grueling but so very worth it. You will spend many hours outside of class coding to the point it may feel like that is all you are doing. You'll be better for it in the long run. Personally, my Instructors, TA's, and my SSM have been a HUGE help for me. Even falling behind on homework at one point, the support didn't stop. I have loved every second of this course and strongly recommend it to anyone seriously thinking about taking a Bootcamp.

      Career Services is a wonderful tool to use if you need a job, you just have to put in every amount of effort you can into it. No one reminds you about turning things in for it or really talks about it in class, so it is entirely upon you to keep up with the Career Services side.

      Since entering the IT field as my second career, I had been struggling to find a path to pursue. After a couple of years of using free materials and tutorials, I decided to set my course on development and make the investment of participating in a structured boot camp. For me, the structure, in-person collaboration, and guidance from experienced developers were very appealing. The Vanderbilt University Coding Boot Camp proved to be the right decision. The instructors and TAs were very supportive and encouraging. The curriculum was challenging yet attainable, and the career services staff provided valuable insight into the hiring process and what recruiters and technical hiring managers are looking for.

      My cohort, in particular, was extremely diverse in terms of age, ethnicity, background, and technical experience. Throughout the course, we learned, grew, and sometimes struggled together. Along the way, I ended up fostering some great relationships. In terms of the instruction, my teachers not only taught the provided curriculum with clarity and detail but also provided their personal anecdotes and interactions with the technology. On many occasions, my instructors would teach the class extra concepts and technologies if there was interest and if time allowed. Overall, I would highly recommend this program to anyone considering making a career change or wanting to plant themselves into the developer realm.

      This course is built in a way to give you the concepts and understand programming  but as well push you to have to put in the hours to actually learn. If you want to just come to class and expect to know how to code ... Sorry you won’t find that any where  but if you are willing to put in the hours you will definitely walk away with ability to continuously learn new technologies  post graduation. I ended up landing a job that required me to do about 30% of coding throughout my daily task and it is amazing. This class was by far the hardest thing I’ve done maybe even harder than my entire undergraduate degree but well worth it if you are willing to put in the time outside of class. I quickly learned that I wouldn’t enjoy having to code every day in the job force but definitely enjoyed being able to use my dev skills in any job. This knowledge pushed me ahead of other applicants and allows me to be very effective in my new role. Only thing I burned out near last month or so of classes.  but it’s because of having to learn new technologies in my new role while also packing all of the new technologies through Vanderbilt. All in all if you’ve been wanting to try a bootcamp I can definitely say well worth it take the risk and grind hard once your in!

       Unlike some of my classmates in the Bootcamp, I had just graduated from a local university with a bachelor's of science in computer science shortly before our class began. My prior academic experience of programming has given me a unique perspective on the effectiveness of the curriculum, and I am very happy to say that I'm a true believer in the program. As someone who has never programmed before, the skills and knowledge you develop in this program with JavaScript will be applicable to learning further programming languages on your own as you expand your skillset. One of the best things about this curriculum is it is prepares studentds to become self-learners in the field of programming. I'd also like to encouragre any recent computer science graduates who are interested in the program to sign up as well. It is an excellent, and cost effective, way to continue your education if you're having trouble finding that first job. Also, throughout this experience, the staff has been absolutely wonderful; TAs, Instructors, and last but not least, our amazingly compassionate Student Success Manager. She wears her passion and empathy for her students on her sleeve. The TAs and Instructors are knowledable, personable, and invested in seeing you succeed.  In conclusion, I would like to wish anyone reading this the best of luck with this program, and encourage all to take a chance on it.

      If you think that this will be a place where you can learn at you own pace and have everything explained in detail, you would be incorrect.  The class goes at break-neck speed. As someone who vacillated between being self-taught and going through a bootcamp, I will encourage you to do this bootcamp.  

      You will still have to be self-taught.  You will spend numerous hours outside of class learning the material.  The benefit of this bootcamp is that you will have your code reviewed by experts in the field and have other peers that you can learn from and support each other through this experience.  You will learn best practices for writing your code and how to digest documentation that is written in "geekspeak." You will also learn the material at a faster rate than you would on your own.  The deadlines and homework will also hold you accountable for your learning. Let's be honest very few people exist that will be so self-disciplined to spend all this time learning for 7 months on their own.  The group projects will also give you real-world experience coding and using code source control with others to achieve a common goal. Also as a newbie, I want you to know that some, if not most of your classmates will have previous coding experience and work currently in field, so do not compare your learning speed to that of others.  

      Since not only the instructors but as well as the TAs are  currently in the field, they can help you know what to expect when you enter the job market, help you define an area of focus, and review and prepare for your interviews.  The instructors and TA are also very supportive and will spend many hours outside of the normal office hours assisting you and answering questions. One on One tutoring is also available.  You will build a network of people and knowledge that will assist you in your job search.

      This has been an amazing experience, the instructors are very knowledgable in their fields and are willing to go the extra mile to help you. The course work is challenging and it does require a number of hours outside of class to get the most out of the program. 

      The Success Manager had been a great help to talk to, she has helped me work through some of the issues surrounding the bootcamp (job search nerves, impostor syndrome, etc.) and is always around and available.

      Lastly the Career Services team has been fantastic in their presentations and information that they provide to help us with our searching. 

      Overall: worth the investment.

      Vanderbilt's Full Stack Coding Boot Camp has been an amazing experience. The instructors are extremely informative, patient, and available when it comes to helping the students. Tutoring is an option, as well, so the support is always there. We also have a great Student Success Manager who is available to help with any issues that may affect our progress, such as life events and personal needs for learning. The curriculum has been designed to help students learn skills that are currently in demand, and the career services allow the students excel in the job market, as opposed to being somewhat competitive. The career aspect of this program is important to me, as I was laid off from a tech start up and will be looking to start a new career in coding soon after graduation. I am confident in the skills I am learning and the amazing support behind me.

      I left my job after a buyout so I found myself looking to make a career change at age 55. I was googling bootcamps and Vandy's popped up. As a previous RN & perfusionist at Vandy, I knew that it would be a great place to go. Knowing myself and the way I learn best I also knew I would stay on track better with going to a physical school & having deadlines instead of trying to learn on my own. It was absolutely the best choice for me, I love the friends I've made and my awesome instructors and TA's. At halfway through, I have no regrets and am learning soooo much in every class. It definitely was out of my comfort zone so I want to encourage others to persist if interested and don't let fear stop you. If I can do it you can as well, it just takes grit and persistance and it does eventually sink in and get easier!

      Taking the Full Stack Web Development bootcamp has been the best decision I have ever made. This bootcamp has been challenging, It requires a lot of hours to practice and understand what we learned in classes because it moves quickly due to being a bootcamp The support from career director, TA's and instructors has been amazing. In the last 6 months I have learned a lot and I'm so happy I chose to study here.
