      I completed the Full-Stack Intensive course at Wcoding this year from January to March. I'd considered a number of different options to get my foot in the door to software development, like online courses and other popular bootcamps. Wcoding stood out for me because of their curriculum flexibility and small class size. If you aren't sold by being just another statistic to a lot of the big bootcamps out there, and you genuinely want a more tailored and personal learning experience, I recommend Wcoding. I liked that even though my class was varied in terms of existing knowledge and background, the teacher was still able to challenge us in different ways and further our learning. The final team project was a really good experience for working effectively within a team and creating a fully functioning app from start to finish. Importantly, although you'll get lots of support from the mentors, you'll only get the most out of the course if you take the initiative to push yourself and stay disciplined throughout - as in don't expect to be spoon-fed!

      I think the best thing about wcoding is the team there. go to their site to check the people out your self. Having direct access to people who are so experienced (esp Alex and Marie) was incredibly helpful. They are in Korea but the coding bootcamp's in english which was another plus for me. As an american citizen I was able to get the entire thing done in the span of the 3 visa-free months so it basically felt like I took a travel vacation to become a fullstack developer. I guess the cons are that I had to come back to the states so I couldnt take advantage of the career prep stuff and their network. but I kept in touch with them and they hooked me up with a job at one of the international startups in seoul (there are so many!) so i ended up comig back here.  
      Be warned that it definitely isn't the easiest thing you go through. But the small class size and the personal help and the fact that I was traveling a different country made the whole thing a lot of fun.
