      The part-time Full-Stack Web & App Development course is for anyone who wishes to expand their skills by studying in the evenings and on Saturdays. Spread over 24 weeks, workshops are held on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 18:30 to 21:30 (CET), and on Saturdays from 9:00 to 18:00 (CET). Within those 24 weeks, you will learn the fundamentals of a broad range of web development technologies, including HTML, CSS, Javascript, React.js, Node.js, APIs (REST, GraphQl), and databases (SQL/NoSQL). If you want to change your career path entirely and become a Web Developer, we recommend continuing with the optional on-site phase at our campus in Berlin. Combining the part-time course with the campus stay extends the educational scope to a level similar to that of our full-time course.

      Overall Experience:

      Job Assistance:
      There are quite a few coding classes and courses that I attended (after studying media information science I attended 6 additional courses when counting those with a duration of at least 3 weeks), the "Full-Stack Web & App Development" course has been my favorite so far for various reasons:
       
      1. "Boot camp"-style: fast-paced, intense, focused (750 hours in 15 weeks), I probably never learned more within 15 weeks.
      2. People: my small batch of fellow students (great people), helpful and friendly WBS staff.
      3. Instructors: The main instructor of our course is a coder by choice and a trainer by heart. Perfect match for the course, a great guy from Paris, even beyond his coding skills. Clever and very friendly co-instructors.
      4. Curriculum/Skills: modern, full-stack, immediately applicable.
      5. Guidance to teamwork: Autodidactically I would probably have chosen a different learning path (more on my own or with a small group) but the WBS did a lot better. Not only by guiding the first steep part of the learning curve to complex new technologies but also by focusing on teamwork early on. First group work took place in week 2 (remotely) and it really evolved a lot from there (collaborative planning/coding, teamworking on Github, project management). In my opinion, that's one of the aspects that the WBS Coding school did a lot better than other classes or courses I attended before.
      6. Hands-on: a high percentage of practical coding, groupwork as well as solo projects.
      7. Real-world: projects that you can add to your portfolio/repo, develop further and/or show to interviewers.
      8. Motivation: I feel motivated and eager to further develop the skills I learned in the boot camp. Any of them make sense, the selected stacks are more than an introduction to modern and scalable full-stack development. I'm curious how my fellow students will evolve their skills and I really enjoy staying in touch.
       
      More than that: it really felt like turning the struggles of a pandemic lockdown into an opportunity to feed my brain and meet new people. There was no ability to travel, fewer assignments, fewer in-person training opportunities, so I used my spare time to do a remote course with 3 weeks on campus and brush up my coding skills and network. Feels like the right decision, what a ride!

      I applied to WBS Coding School because of the special format of 12-weeks online and 3-weeks face-to-face on campus in Berlin. It was a great opportunity to have the freedom to learn from home or wherever in the world while enhancing virtual and international teamwork. 
       
      My first pretty good impression of the coding-test, which was mainly about checking the fast-learning-abilities and the friendly interview were proven during the whole Bootcamp. The staff is super nice, caring and helpful. 
      We were a small batch with a great and private learning atmosphere. Our instructor was experienced in many different fields and always available for support and feedback. It really felt like working with friends. 
       
      The online-learning-platform is easy to use and pretty helpful. The staff is continuously improving content and structure and takes feedback thankfully and seriously and tries to apply. 
       
      The tech stack we learned is up-to-date and fits well together. It is a tough and intense way of learning, but in the end all puzzle pieces came together and resulted in unique and cool final projects we presented on demo-day. We all were proud of what we were able to learn and code after 15 weeks. But of course, it is just the start :) 
       
      The time on-campus in Berlin was the best part. The location is nice, the food really good, the rooms basic, but nice and the staff is super friendly. It was great to have face-to-face-support for the final project and we could really focus while having a great time together.

      I enrolled in this bootcamp because I wanted to insert myself in the German job market as soon and as successfully as possible; coming from another country (Mexico) and having an unfinished bachelor, I felt in need of guidance throughout the process. Thankfully my advisor at the Job Federal Ministry pointed WBS Coding School to me. 

      The curriculum itself is ambitious and extensive but provides a rich overview of both the software development industry as a whole and Javascript-based environments in particular.  The fact that it's structured as an hybrid bootcamp (12 weeks online / 3 weeks on-campus) really help me progressively integrate it in my life, also, the 15-week duration was key in my decision as most bootcamps are just 9 weeks long and I thought it wouldn't be enough for me.

      The lead and junior instructors are really patient, knowledgeable and give their everything for you to understand the topics at hand. The staff is amazing and always welcoming. The job support is equally good workshops, guest speakers and personalized coaching. 

      Finally, but definitely the most enjoyable part of this journey: you'll meet amazing people. I had the fortune of having amazing classmates from different cultural and academic backgrounds, that fostered a really ideas-rich environments in which to thrive, and you can always count of them to help you through. After or 3 weeks in Berlin, I believe we ended up as friends for life, and I'm really looking forward to future collaborations with any of them!

      I started this bootcamp with especially a lot of confusion about coding. All these youtube videos, mini bootcamps etc really made me feel like the dumbest person ever. 

      While I was looking for a serious platform, I found out that at WBS school they were about to start with a Full Stack Web and App development boot camp. I previously did some other courses at WBS and they are really really good. So I went for the Coding Bootcamp with almost zero knowledge. 

      The course is fast paced but the teachers are incredibly patient! They make sure you keep up and they have for every student an approach that suits them best. I never knew that I would be capable of learning and creating so much awesome stuff, just in 12 weeks!!

      The highlight and the biggest advantage that WBS Codingschool offers is definitely the last 3 weeks on Campus!! No other school offers a real life experience like this!! Being in a fancy „Vegetarian-hotel„ for 3 weeks, with your classmates, teacher and coaches for 3 weeks working on your final project, that is just awesome!! The team spirit, the live-coaching, your teacher and other teachers available on site to help you in every step of the way; that is priceless!!!

      I made friends for life, created awesome apps and am much more confident about my capabilities.

      And as cherry on the cake, I landed a job one week before end of the course.

      I can only recommend!

      First thing you must learn reading this review, is that after studying in  WBS coding school  your life will change and you can’t live without coding afterwards. 
      I had an amazing opportunity to study there. I learned much more, than coding during 15 weeks.
      The teaching staff, structure of the lessons, career services and also the atmosphere ! 
      Everything was perfect for studying. 
      And now I am a Full Stack developer starting a new career in IT world. 
      My recommendation is 10/10.

       I chose WBS Coding School because of its hybrids format (12 weeks online, 3 weeks on-campus). I think it's a great concept, and it worked practically as well. It meant that I could actually do the bootcamp at all, since I don't have the money to pay for housing in a city for 3 months like a lot of bootcamps want. For bootcamps like that, you really just get people who have the money. WBS also had a lot of funding options through partners and the Agentur für Arbeit here in Germany, which is how I think a lot of people paid for the bootcamp. 

      The staff takes feedback very gracefully, and is very quick to react to suggestions or complaints. I always felt that I could give my criticism/feedback to basically any staff member, and I felt that they really listened. The community manager in particular was incredibly sensitive and really listened and took action on a lot of things. The career services at the school are also great, and I felt really supported. The on-campus portion of the course is also fun, the food is great, the housing is clean and private, and you can really focus on your projects. 

      The platform that the school built for the materials is easy to navigate, and felt like a good homebase. I also really loved our teacher, and felt like we really learned a good mindset for going forward. That said, the curriculum definitely needs improvements. The tech stack they've chosen is great and very modern, but the lectures and exercises leave something to be desired. They may fix this by the time I've written this, but it's worth saying that if you do this bootcamp, learn the basics of HTML/CSS/JavaScript really well, and take time outside of class to learn the concepts, otherwise you will be stressed most of the time. That all said, I definitely feel like we learned the concepts and were thrown into realistic situations to force us to learn and grow. 

      All in all, I would definitely recommend this bootcamp and absolutely feel like it was worth my time and effort.

      I really learned a lot in ths bootcamp. It was, orcourse, intense and exhausting but for all the right reasons. 
      Going from knowing nothing to creating full fletched useful webapps in 15 weeks, I honestly though that was too good to be true. But yet, here I am. 
      And I love the Demo Day. It's so nice to have a chance to show off your hard work to friends and family - as well as recruiters. But I also really like that I can see what new student are doing. It's just a lovely way to stay connected.

    Thanks!
