With so many bootcamp options and different types of learning, what makes Bloc so special? Since our inception in 2012, we’ve relied on feedback from the industry and Bloc students to make our programs better.
We want to share five reasons why Bloc’s Web Development Track is the best coding bootcamp on the market:
1. 360 Support: more than mentorship
360 support is our secret sauce here at Bloc. We offer something none of our direct competitors have: equal levels of emphasis on various support channels. This includes Bloc’s mentors, our student success team, and our grading team. Learning how to code is hard and it’s not going to be a walk in the park. We’re confident that 360 support is the best way to tackle the challenges you’ll experience as a student.
360 support includes expert instruction & guidance, accountability & structure, and community. Through this, students have access to career workshops, group sessions, mentorship, and live Q&A.
2. Career service support for life
Bloc has Career Prep Curriculum woven into our programs so you start building soft skills early on. We want you to be prepared and confident once you’ve completed the program. It also gives students the ability to start their job search sooner. Just this past year, we’ve had multiple students get jobs before completing the program. In addition, you’ll get Career Service support for life.
3. 130+ code reviews to help you master your skills
You’re not going to start and end this journey alone. Throughout the program, you’ll have assessments and checkpoints where you’ll prove out what you’ve learned. The code you submit is thoroughly reviewed by a professional developer with feedback included. With over 130+ code reviews, you’ll leave Bloc confident in your skills and your ability to write and explain code.
4. Personalized paths: better job opportunities
If you do a coding search for top programming languages for 2019, you’ll get a ton of different answers. Which language is the best? Depending on where you’re at in the world, some programming languages are more popular than others. That’s why Bloc has created personalized paths where students can choose which path to take based on languages popular in their job market. At Bloc, you’ll be able to choose between Express and Node.js or Ruby on Rails.
5. Flexible pace without sacrificing support
We strive to provide the same caliber of education in a part-time program as a full-time program. Now, Bloc allows students to pick their pace based on the time they’re able to dedicate to the program. No matter what pace you choose, the support remains the same: the same amount of mentorship, group sessions, and live Q&A.
