    quid pro quo

    This program will change your life if you put in what it asks from you. If you're passionate and driven about doing this over what ever else you might have been, you'll get very far. I had a clear idea of where I'd have liked to be but wasn't sure if I had the proficiency to get me there. That's where the program/instructors at ZCW came in. You're given an understanding of the fundementals for starting to develop software but the foundation and work ethic required is something you...

    Life Changer!

    Throughout my life, I have been all over the place when it came to my career. I was in college then the military and back to school. I got to a point where I needed to focus on my passion, which was technology in general. I've always been tech savvy but I wanted to direct that passion towards a career I can be proud of as quickly as possible. After taking a few online coding classes, I started searching for coding boot camps and most of them are located in New York or in California. I even...

    Best program to start your career in software development

    There’s a lot of bootcamps out there, but Zip Code Wilmington stands out among them all, because everyone there is laser-focused on getting you a job after you finish the program.

    The school’s statistics for getting a job after the program are true. My class finished on April 27th, 2018, and the vast majority of us got a job with the school’s financial partners within the first 2-3 weeks after graduating. They’ll teach you everything you need to know technically for your job inte...

    Life Changing

     

    Coming into a program like this can be overwhelming and sometimes even discouraging without putting in the amount of time and work that is required in order to be successful. But the key is to break through and overcome your own barriers. Staying positive and committed not only to the program but to yourself in every endeavor you take on in life will be the drive you need for success. Not only will you learn the basics and core fundamentals of programming at ZCW, you will constan...

    A Fresh Start Made Possible and Practical By Zip Code Wilmington

    Zip Code Wilmington students come from all walks of life, with varying levels of experience with technology/coding, a myriad of prior jobs/careers, and call many different places home, but they all have at least a few things in common; they are, for one reason or another, looking for a fresh start in an industry with almost limitless possibilities, one that has been and will continue to grow exponentially with a high demand for employment; they have a passion for technology and hunger for ...

    Let Me Tell You A Story...

    There's plenty of other reviews here talking about the program itself, so I'm going to take a slightly different tack.

    It's March 1, 2018 as I write this. I'm preparing to sleep so that I can wake up and go to work tomorrow. Like 150 million other Americans. It's really no big deal- unless it is. Two years ago I was starting a part-time job that paid pennies over minimum wage. No insurance, no hope of advancement, and no other opportunities. Yet, I was thankful because I was, in ...

    Best decision ever

    When they said this is a hard program and you will work 100 hours a week, they are not joking. It's very challenging but it's all worth it in the end. During this program, you will learn a lot of practical skills that you can apply on the job, which you might not even get that experience by going through a 4 year college. You will succeed if you spend effort to truly understand and learn more in depth of the class material on your own. Instructors are really helpful, also don't hesitate to...

    Life Changing!!!

    I found Zip Code Wilmington by accident. I have always had an interesting in computer programming, but felt that I wasn't smart enough or capable. When I found Zip Code, I thought it was too good to be true. A bootcamp that actually cares about your success and not your money. Zip Code makes it a point that you will learn programming tailored towards what the current job market wants as opposed to typical "book-learning." I met some amazing people through this bootcamp and have changed my ...

    Best Decision Ever!

    Zip Code was a hard and intense program, but for where I am now and the new friends I made, it was well worth it! The course is designed with corporate partners in mind, they are 100% career oreinted (they will not stop connecting you with job openings as long as you stay commited with them!) and the teachers are supportive, fun, and masters at what they do. If you are feeing intimidated, thats normal! It is a hard program, but its not impossible. From someone who almost say no to this exp...

    Exceptional

    As a graduate from the most recent Java Bootcamp cohort, I can absolutely say that Zip Code Wilmington helped change my career and life. Not only did the program help me find a job in software development, but it also gave me the confidence to succeed in it. Although I still have much to learn (over many years I hope!), Zip Code Wilmington gave me a great foundation.

    Are You Ready?

    This course is hard. I enjoyed the community and the resources that were available to me while in the program. Being a visual learner, I would have liked to start with design patterns and then learn the technologies. The instructors do not hold your hand through this course so to be successful and truly retain all that you will learn over the 12 weeks you must be very vocal. Ask a lot of questions. If you clam up when you feel stumped then you'll get left behind quickly. This isn't for the...
