      Learning how to use and interpret big data can significantly boost your career – but you don’t have to quit your job to learn. Data Science is not only one of the most sought-after and progressive disciplines in tech, it is also among the most versatile. The skills it offers can be put to use in such fields as law, medicine, insurance, marketing, consultancy, human resources, and many more. Your classes will last three hours on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday, complemented with a full day of teaching on Saturday. You will learn about the theory and the mathematical foundations of Data Science, and from there, progress to its practical and commercial applications. The bootcamp equips you with the precise skills necessary to interpret and exploit the data generated by business interactions online (or, to get your computer to do it for you!). A thorough induction in machine learning, a field of artificial intelligence, is also provided.

      UX/UI Design offers excellent opportunities for career changers and people with a tech and/or design background alike. Anyone can learn the necessary skills and reap the benefits it brings–stable high earnings, the comforts of remote work, and a guaranteed future-proof career path. But most people who try entering this field lack certain key skills that allow them to take on more responsibility within a company or project. That’s where UX/UI Designers often fall short–especially in the Startup world. That’s why we created this Bootcamp. It goes much deeper and further than just learning UX or UI design. It also teaches you how to strategically manage and plan the whole design process, giving you more flexibility in the job market and a higher salary. This Bootcamp will equip you with all the skills you need to become a ready-to-hire Digital Product Designer from scratch. It goes far beyond the theory, with a uniquely practical approach to learning that breaks with the formula of the traditional Bootcamp: You’ll build a portfolio starting from week 1. Where other Bootcamps attempt to train you for the reality of work… we actually let you do real work. You’ll be given specific tasks each week and work together with your classmates as a Design Team. Then, you’ll get serious feedback on your work. Our junior instructors will take the role of Product Owners, your lead instructor will act as the CEO, and your classmates will be your co-workers. All feedback sessions will be set up like an honest Product Owner to Designer meeting – just like in the real world.

      The goal of this 15-week full-time program is to turn you into a fully operational Full-Stack Web & App Developer. Graduates of this course typically find employment as Junior Developers within a very short time frame. The lessons taught cover a diverse set of technologies such as HTML, CSS, Javascript, React.js, Node.js, APIs (REST, GraphQl), and databases (SQL/NoSQL). For the first 12 weeks, you will study remotely on our virtual learning platform together with your classmates – led by professional instructors. The big finale is your stay at our Campus Berlin – accommodation and meals included. You will live and code together with your classmates, preparing your final portfolio project. During the pandemic coming to Berlin is still recommended but optional. Alternatively, you can participate online too.

      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 26 weeks with 2 one-week breaks in between, 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 26 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.

      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.

      We are sorry that our bootcamp did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately, you did not provide any contact information, so we can neither assign which group you were in, nor contact you directly. Therefore, we ask you to contact us at info@wbscodingschool.com and give us a chance to improve our bootcamp.

      But in advance, I would like to clarify that our courses have been carefully designed for beginners and its success has already been confirmed numerous times by our students and alumni.
      The pace is appropriate for a bootcamp - a lot of content is taught in a short time, but all important content is repeated steadily, so that at the end of the bootcamp beginners are able to apply as juniors in the relevant fields.

      I attended online bootcamp full time. Unfortunately, I haven't had a good experience with WBS Coding School. Unfortunately, I can't agree with what is written here as reviews. Maybe curriculum and content of the lessons were o.k.  But overall the class instruction was not satisfactory. 
      I talked about this with other fellow students in my class and they think like me too. Compared to other classes, the instructor is constantly unavailable and the questions of students remain unanswered. You always had to study and work on your own. Students are left alone most of the time. You paid such a huge sum of money for the course, but accordingly all of the lessons during the bootcamp were not even sufficient and even miserable. Job assistance is also just as meager and unhelpful. probably this school does not treat its students with hearts. That's sad. WBS Coding School could have done better with their students. 
      A pity for all the money and the spent times. At the end, after the bootcamp you have to learn a lot more for yourself in order to find a job, because the bootcamp didn't bring you much in the end

      We are sorry that our bootcamp did not meet your expectations. Unfortunately, you did not provide contact information, so we can neither assign which batch you were in nor contact you directly. Therefore, we invite you to contact us at info@wbscodingschool.com and give us a chance to evaluate when you did not receive support. 

      In addition, however, your review contains some factually incorrect statements, which we would like to comment on as follows. 
      Our lead instructors work with their students every day. The days start at 9 am with a joint stand-up meeting followed by either a lecture, workshop or one-to-one meetings. The lead instructor's help can also be requested at any time during group work in the afternoons. 

      Moreover, participants can request the support of junior instructors and mentors at any time. A booking system via Calendly is available for this purpose. In addition, all trainers and mentors, as well as every team member of the Coding School, can be contacted at any time via Discord.

      600 hours of new knowledge input, collaborative pet projects, and intense practicing periods... All made possible and guided by WBS Coding School and their super cool staff. Frankly, I don't have any other coding school to directly compare my experience with, however, I really wanted to endorse their program here since I went "from zero to hero" thanks to them. Doing the part-time Web Development course with WBS was my personal highlight ever since the pandemic broke out. Prior to the official start of the course, the school provided all participants with so-called "primer" exercises on HTML and CSS which helped us get into the mood. Later, we were introduced to our instructor who would (virtually) stay right by our side as lecturer, coach, and source of knowledge for the entire time of the course. Every new week was filled with new content, valuable real-life insights, and challenging exercises. For my part, investing in myself at WBS was worthwhile all along. Towards the end of the program, we were all offered special career services, too, making sure we all had our CVs updated and our interview skills ready for the tech world. And what can I say, right after graduation I landed my first full-time job in the software sector. Kudos to WBS Coding School for their inspiring work and for helping me kickstart my career in tech!

      The program is basically a crash course where you can achieve knowledge of the overall front end and back end architecture. The program is compact and includes learning as well as job preparation in 3 months. WBS has competent instructors who make you ready for the job market. Pros are even if you are a beginner you would end up knowing a lot about the technologies involved and igniting the interest. Cons are you would not be 100% job ready unless you put your own effort to get into depth in each area, which may take additional time.

       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!
