"horrific Experience -- a scam, a sham and outright fraud."
I had the unfortunate opportunity of enrolling in the "Android Bootcamp." The instructors were awful, and the entire class of students ultimately found it necessary to sign a petition, demanding that owner, Charles Ashley, provide a full refund or some... Read More
Based upon my personal experiences with Cultivating Coders, I'd admonish potential students to stay away from this scam -- i.e. Cultivating Coders.
And the good thing is that there's another coding Bootcamp in the Albuquerque region, which has been operating for many years. It's called "Deep Dive Coding." It's taught in partnership with CNN. You can find all of the details at the following website: https://stemuluscenter.org/. Compare the "Deep Dive Coding" Bootcamp's website which provides extensive and exhaustive info. about the Deep Dive Coding Bootcamp, with the Cultivating Coders website, http://cultivatecoders.com/ which provides zero information about the Cultivating Coders Bootcamp.
Moreover, while Cultivating Coders Bootcamp charges $8000 for 8 weeks of instruction, "Deep Dive Coding" charges $6495 for 10-12 weeks of instruction. In addition, unlike students who complete the Cultivating Coders Bootcamp and who are typically unable to secure post-Bootcamp employment, the Deep Dive Coding Bootcamp enrollees on ave. earn $45000 per year after completing their Bootcamp. Perhaps this is why Cultivating Coders refuses to publish or otherwise make known to anyone either (a) what proportion of graduating students have been able to obtain employment as web developers, or (b) even the median salary among graduates of Cultivating Coders Bootcamp.
To obtain a feel as to the many differences between Cultivating Coders Bootcamp, and the Deep Dive Coding Bootcamp, I'd urge you to visit the respective web pages.
This is what I know. I completed the "Android" Web Development Cultivating Coders Bootcamp, and I'm close to 100 percent certain that zero graduating students have been able to obtain employment in web development. Just prior to the "Android Bootcamp," Cultivating Coders held a Bootcamp at the Albuquerque Chamber of Commerce. I was told by a reliable source, but cannot independently confirm, that zero graduating students were able to secure employment as web developers.
Interestingly, Cultivating Coders makes it clear that it provides absolutely no post-Bootcamp employment assistance. In fact, Cultivating Coders even acknowledges in writing that it provides absolutely no post-Bootcamp employment services. On the other hand, Deep Dive Coding provides a host of employment services for it graduating students.
I will remain anonymous since I'm not particularly interested in finding myself the victim of the pettiness of Charles Ashley -- I've already experienced it..Comment
