The structure of the program, spanning 12 weeks with classes from 9 am to 2 pm PST, was well-planned and conducive to learning. Despite being an online course, the curriculum was comprehensive, covering a wide range of topics essential for a career in coding. The flexibility of the schedule allowed me to balance my learning with other commitments, making it accessible to individuals with various lifestyles.

One of the highlights of my experience was working with fellow students on team projects. Collaboration was encouraged, and the camaraderie among peers was palpable. It was inspiring to see how everyone supported each other, sharing insights and knowledge to tackle challenges collectively. This collaborative spirit extended to our final capstone projects, where we brought together everything we had learned to create innovative solutions.

Overall, Actualize Coding Bootcamp exceeded my expectations in every aspect. Not only did I gain valuable technical skills, but I also forged meaningful connections and developed the confidence to pursue a career in coding. I highly recommend Actualize to anyone looking to embark on a journey into the world of programming.
