"Intense and rewarding challenge!"
I researched all the available boot-camps in the Austin area taking the intro classes for all of them. There were 4 main areas where ACCs program stood out from the rest:
1. Trial class - Although there was a small fee associated with it vs free like the... Read More
"Fast and consistent learning"
IronHack has exceeded all expectations, the knowledge I have acquired has been consolidated and I am confident in putting everything I have learned into practice. At first I was afraid to bootcamp because of the value of the investment and in the end,... Read More
"A fast paced and challenging class"
My time at the ACC Web Developer Bootcamp was the most fun I've had learning thanks to the great instructors and mentors that were always available when I needed help, and always gave me more to do when I asked for more.
I came into the class with only... Read More
I highly recommend this bootcamp to anyone who has the time and dedication to seriously learn, the hours in class work around a normal working schedule but the time you have to put into it to properly learn make this a second job, do NOT take this class if you just want to pass and get a new job, only take it if you truly want to learn.
"I had a great experience. I like that the course was spread out a little longer than most."
Bootcamps are a crush on your brain and your time no matter what. What set ACC apart in my eyes was the longer class length. Most try to cover in three months what we did in almost six.
There is no way you could retain that much information in a three... Read More
"A great deal of learning in short 6 months"
I got my Bachelors in Computing several years back. Before the bootcamp, while I was running my small real estate rental business, I felt it was the time to learn the foundational coding skills needed to develop full products. As it will help me run my... Read More
The experience of going through the ACC bootcamp was amazing! Especially the project in the last four weeks where we were able to develop a fully functional web app and see how software teams work. Working in a team with an assigned instructor was the perfect way to combine everything I had learnt into the right mix of knowledge, problem solving and breaking down complicated requirements.
While this may not be the perfect program for everyone, it does cater to those who have no prior programming background to those that have some light skills in web development.
The instructor team did a great job facilitating this program and I’m really thankful for this experience!
"The instructors really care and I learnt a lot"
I looked at the various coding boot camps in Austin, the syllabuses, their instructors profiles and most importantly the schedule.
Only at the last moment during my online research, I noticed that Austin Community College also offered a coding bootcamp... Read More
I found the trial class very informative about the program and did meet Jon, Piyush and Sevy, the instructors. Jon Michael, a mentor (TA??) also stopped by. I was very thrilled to see the dedication of the boot camp staff. The material covered at the trial class was quite a lot and sometimes I felt a bit rushed. However, it was all good, since the instructor provided copy of the materials and I was able to learn the materials, and did manage to complete the home work challenge. The fact that they gave a home work challenge was a good sign, as it would weed out those who were not really interested in the program, or not up to the task.
I attended the boot camp. It started off a bit off wobbly, as there were some students who were having issues setting up their computers and development environment. However, Piyush's technical talents came to the rescue and the issues were all ironed out.
They provided detailed self learning assignments and home work projects for each week from Week 1 till Week 16 or 17 (I don't exactly remember). The self learning was a bit too much, as it took a lot of time completing. However, I found the projects very useful in applying what I had learnt. Eventually I learn how to speed-learn from various suggested sources, as well as find out what I should be learning and what I could postpone till later.
What did it for me at the ACC software bootcamp was the dedication of the instructors. They do this because they obviously love to teach and help. I was able to ask technical questions from them over the Christmas break. I also got help over Christmas eve. They would ask to me to join a screensharing session and help me work through my issues. This factor alone makes this the best progrm you can find around here.
I whole heartedly support this program. I wish I could go and teach here, so I could work with these wonderful folks, but I have other aspirations ;-)
Go try the trial class and decide for yourself.
"100% scam - Dont give them your money"
There is nothing offered in this course that you can't obtain for free off of the web. The instructor exclusively refers to W3schools and other sources like Udemy as reference material. The program provides zero reference material of its own. In the end... Read More
"Not For Everyone"
If you are working a full time job and looking to learn new technologies in a well thought out, structured, and organized curated course... THIS IS NOT IT.
Granted, you will learns from the self-learning which is usually provided via other well established... Read More
The first site of issues with this course was the lack of organization the first real day of class. Intro into basic web authoring that was very alarming by the poor execution of the instructors and the lack of confidence which was a huge disservice to the students. But it's not all of the instructors fault, as this is the brain child of the creator - Piyush, who may know and love the course material but has no ability to teach effectively.
Do yourself a favor, take your time, find a good online course and resource. Repeat and use the information you are learning daily over and over again. And you will not have wasted over $7,000 to sit in a class with slides with no context, minimum information/instruction and instructors who obviously aren't all on the same page (some not even working or worked in the industry).
"A real bootcamp, taught by real humans"
I am so, so glad I decided on a whim to attend this bootcamp. I couldn't decide between the Austin Community College bootcamp and the one taught by UT Austin, so I went to the ACC "pre-class" to meet the instructors and learn more about the curriculum.... Read More
I definitely think that you should attend the pre-class, if you're on the fence about joining. Actually, if you have $80, do it anyways - it's super fun. And know that this class might not be the best for people who like to follow a rigid, pre-determined schedule. But if you're all right with putting your trust in these instructors, I highly recommend letting them lead you on this wild ride with them. I'm so glad I followed my gut and didn't pay twice the price for the UT Austin version.
