    Most challenging experience I've ever had, would heartily recommend for remote learning.

    Viking is a black spot on your CV

    After a very long job search I came to discover in an interview that places who will hire people out of bootcamps won't hire people out of viking. Turns out that their poor standards and practices are widely known. If you are desperate enough to enroll with them make sure to leave their name off your resume in favor of just listing your skills and related accomplishments.

    Very little instruction or feedback is given in writing and is instead given verbally and is inconsistent between intructors.

    No one associated with the school has any background or skill in education or teaching.

    Most of cl...
