I came to the Disruption Institute after working for some years as a Fine Dining Chef. I struggled initial to keep up with the curriculum as I was out of my old study habits and I had no prior experience in computer programming. Disruption Institute Founder, Mike Gelphman was very sympathetic with my plight and he took me aside to figure out how he could improve my experience.

I did the Disruption Institute the first year. Since then I have been able to build a fairly successful career in iOS development. I would say you get out of it what you put in. As with most things, if you don't put in the work you won't get much out of it.

Applied for DI late 2014. Received a call for an interview Spring 2015. Compared to other popular Coding Bootcamps, DI webpage is not very forthcoming with information.
Received an interview early 2015. It was fairly decent. When I got accepted in Disruption Institute. I received a couple of links to non-related DI sites for pre-work. I was so excited to finally feel like my career was going to change. I was never held accountable for the pre-work that I completed. The program was very fast pace, but I didn't feel like the teachers and instructors were really focused on my learning. Program starts, I find out the creator of the program (Micheal) has no programming experience. Ok, that's fine, I said to myself. There were 3 different teachers for each day of the week.
