    Ruby on rails and much more

    The program was very hands on as we learned to build an application right at the beginning of the course.  I learned a lot in the course and it has given me great confidence to start my career in technology.  I personally learn best with a teacher next to me hence I had a great time learning from a teacher who has a tonne of industry experience. The live-in program also have me valuable time and space to learn without distraction.  Would recommend it, highly!

    Penny - CC

    Penny she is an awesome career coach. When I was getting no replies from the employers, she boosted me and help me to be on track. For my first interview I was panicking and reached out for help to Penny, and she was kind enough to allocate some time for me and prep me for the interview. She is very encouraging and motivating and have the right career advice for you. Thank you so much for your efforts and help Penny.

    WebDev Bootcamp Review

    9 weeks ago I left my job and the UK and headed to Finland to attend this course to learn full stack web development. Upon arriving at the airport I was greeted by Torsten and Raisa and they made me feel instantly welcome. We travelled to the house in Fiskars and I started exploring the small, peaceful village before returning to the house for some much needed rest in anticipation of the first day of lessons.

    Torsten is an excellent teacher, he is patient, knowledgeable and has ...

    from Rails Girls to a developer

    It all started with Rails Girls Tampere in May 2016. WebDev.camp had a presentation there about the opportunity to become a web developer in just 8 weeks, living in the beautiful Finnish countryside where participants can focus on studying and learning how to code.

    Although I had worked as a software test engineer for almost 15 years, I had never done any coding. I have always been a tech savvy person, but I have never been good with mathematics and I thought p...

    Learn to code in nature

    At WebDev.camp we had the amazing experience of working on an open-source app that will be genuinely useful to people in the Ruby community. We learned Ruby, Rails, Javascript and how to use Github, as well as CSS, HTML and Haml. We worked extensively with APIs in our app and learned about different methods of deployment. It makes such a difference to work on real problems, and it was great to be able to look at and work with real open-source code right from the start of the course, as wel...

    A life changing experience at Web Dev Camp

    Since I was a child I have always wanted to build something that count. Like Paul Shane Spear says, I know that “As one person I cannot change the world, but I can change the world of one person.”

    My story with programming started this year when I finished an on-line course of foreign language. Because is hard to learn by yourself I used an application for more help. I was amazed how a team of programmers, scientists and coaches can create an application with such gre...

    Study Web development Through TAMUK

    I am happy with my decision to join and complete the bootcamp at Texas A and M. I learned python, Django, HTML/CSS, JavaScript, MONGO-DB, and React JS. I challenged myself through quizzes, projects, and homework. I found support with my classmates and my mentor. The material covered in the bootcamp is verifiable and well researched. I was able to seek help with YouTube and with other tutors if I needed it. I have learned to be more patient with myself and to be consistent through the boo...

    Learned a ton, can't wait to put it to use

    The web dev program is great but not as an absolute beginner. Its honestly best to go in with as much knowledge as you can because this program will help you put that to better use. Of course, Covid-19 definitely changed how the course performed which is understandable but over all it was a great experience to go through. My instructor, Farish, was extremely helpful in that he does not have a huge ego leading the course and in also helping students. The T.A.s were also extremely helpful....

    Review from a computer science graduate

     

    Teaching: WebDev Camp is obviously very different from university teaching methods. Firstly, we worked straight away on a 'real' solution. There was no 'faffing about'. Secondly, the feedback loop is much quicker as Torsten is always present to answer question when we are too stuck. At the same time, there is enough room to think for yourself and learn by yourself - which is a good skill to have. You also get to develop a lot of your people skills as you work and live together ...
