    Full Stack/Web Development

    I decided to pursue this career path because I wanted to make a career change and knew where I wanted to go but did not have the skills. I hold a Computer Science degree but the coding I learned in college years ago did not stick. After researching bootcamps I felt that there was an opportunity to better learn coding and make a career move. This was such a great experience! I learned new skills and feel that I can take them to the workforce and succeed. I enjoyed the challenges and proje...

    Full-Stack Web Development Course

    I entered this program a beginner in the field of coding. I am a 47 year old pastor who was looking for something new. I hoped to gain skills to start a new career or to supplement the work that I already do in ministry. I am just past the halfway point in my course, and I have made a huge amount of progress toward those goals.
    I chose the Vanderbilt program for several reasons. First, I am a graduate of Vanderbilt with a bachelor's degree in music and a master's degree in Divinity, s...

    Vanderbilt University Digital Marketing Boot Camp

    I chose to join the digital marketing world to gain a better knowledge and understanding about the impact and influence social media, and other online platforms, has on our daily lives. For about 3 years now, I've been running social media accounts for several small businesses with an occasional email blast, and that's pretty much it. I know there is so much more to digital marketing than just Instagram and Facebook. So I joined Vanderbilt University's Digital Marketing Bootcamp to furth...

    A great stepping stone to a new future

    I decided to pursue a career in Tech after many years in the service industry. When I learned about this coding bootcamp I signed up almost immediately and knew it would be a great investment for my future. My favorite aspect of the program is how much we covered in the 24 weeks, and the amount of support I had when running into issues and tackling a new learning curve. If you're thinking about joining this bootcamp, I say DO IT, but be prepared for long hours and lots of brain-bending l...

    Loved every minute of it!

    Learning how to code can be daunting. Where do I start? All of this content online is overwhelming. Coming from a background in retail these are the things I would ask myself when I was going the self-taught route. I tried to teach myself how to code for a few months and when something got hard or I didn't understand a topic I would constantly change up tutorials and never make any progress. Then I came across the Vanderbilt Bootcamp on a google ad and it piqued my inter...

    Great Intro to Full Stack Development

    This course lasted 6 months and was a firehose of information. If you can keep up with the rapid pace, you will learn the basics of HTML, CSS, Javascript/JQuery, Node, Express, SQL, MongoDB, Handlebars, React and programming fundamentals. There is not much in the way of in-depth instruction for each of these topics, but you will gain some small experience in each. By the end you will have a portfolio of web pages to display your newly gained skills. Teacher support is generally good with e...

    Got my money's worth ... and then some.

    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 supp...

    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.

    full stack dev course

    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 ...

    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!

    Full Stack Flex Program

    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.
