"Juno helped me make a career change and get hired as a front-end developer during the COVID-19 pandemic!"

Long story short: Juno helped me make a career change and get hired as a front-end developer during the COVID-19 pandemic!

In university I studied anthropology and French. I planned to work in academia, but after completing a Master's degree in anthropology... Read More

While working at the call centre, I enrolled in the part-time introduction to web development course at Juno College in October 2019. I had dabbled in building websites in the past, and I wanted to see if a career change into web development was the right move for me. I chose Juno because of the great reviews online, as well as for financial reasons: if I enrolled in the 9-week bootcamp, the cost of the web development course would be deducted from my bootcamp tuition. At the time, Juno was also the only bootcamp that offered the option of an Income Sharing Agreement, i.e. having the cost of the bootcamp deducted as a percentage of your pay when you are hired as a developer.

I really enjoyed the web development course, so after much deliberation I applied and was accepted for the bootcamp beginning in February 2020, as well as the 2 week full-time JavaScript course running just before it. I quit my job at the call centre, and my journey began! After having taken three courses at Juno so far (Web Development, JavaScript, and Bootcamp) I can say that I am absolutely thrilled with my experience. Here are some of the highlights:

-The course materials are cutting-edge, easy to understand, and constantly being updated. As a Juno graduate, you have access to the course materials for life, even as they continue to be updated!
-The instructors are all fantastic. Experienced, knowledgeable, patient, funny, understanding, friendly, engaging, and passionate are the main adjectives that come to mind.
-The Career Services team really knows what they are doing. During and after bootcamp, they provide tips and guidance on how to get your first job as a developer. This process is very thorough, and I was really impressed by how they hold your hand through becoming part of the tech community, building a personal brand, and successfully marketing yourself to stand out to employers. Similar to the course materials, they are always looking for ways to improve and give their graduates an edge in the job market.
-The community of students, alumni, instructors, and Juno staff is super friendly, welcoming, inclusive, and all-around great. I made so many new friends!

Three weeks into my bootcamp, COVID-19 struck and all Ontario schools closed. Initially Juno proposed that we immediately continue classes remotely, but there was backlash from many of my classmates who had concerns about the quality of a remote bootcamp and their ability to take part from home. Juno listened to this feedback and decided to pause bootcamp for three weeks, hoping that the crisis would blow over by then. Unfortunately the pandemic situation worsened, but over the three week break Juno prepared a seamless transition to remote learning, and have since made significant accommodations to do right by their students. The three weeks also gave us as students more time to prepare for the new reality. This is just one example of how accommodating Juno is, how they can nimbly make changes and improvements when necessary, and how they always put their students first!

My last day of bootcamp was May 15th 2020, and in July of 2020 I was hired as a Front-End Developer at Greenpeace Canada! It speaks volumes that Juno College was able to help me achieve this even during a pandemic, and I am forever grateful. I look forward to taking more courses at Juno as I continue to level up my skills :)

"Quite the disappointment"

My experience of the bootcamp wasn't great. And some of my cohort I've spoken to agree. Prospective students need to be aware that HY emails students to encourage us to leave a review on the bootcamp review websites for a chance to win a $$ gift card... Read More

The Pros:
- HackerYou has a strong reputation among the tech companies in Toronto that want to hire recent bootcamp grads and front-end devs. You'll learn that some don't.
- They really dive into HTML, CSS, design principles, accessibility and Responsive Web. Most bootcamps tend to skim through this, but HY actually ensures you have that foundation. This is their biggest strength.
- Highly enthusiastic alumni
- Beyond bootcamp, taught by Simon was incredible

The Cons:
- We did not cover JavaScript (for web development) during the bootcamp. There was at most 1 day of lessons on vanilla. The curriculum skipped right to jQuery and React.
Those of us bootcamp grads with JS-focused jobs taught ourselves outside HY or were extraordinarily lucky.
- Overly positive culture discourages criticism of the program and results in an increasingly weak bootcamp. This is the downside of cheerleader rah-rah alumni.
- Huge turnover and administrative changes during my cohort meant a weaker bootcamp than in previous years. Heather, the CEO, was described as a sort of secret weapon, but she is much less involved in the bootcamp than before, and it shows.
- All of this would be ok, if not for the much praised career support being so surprisingly mediocre. It consisted of the spreadsheet and instructions of how to apply for jobs, and any discussion following centered around those instructions. Most of my friends in the class say that HY had little role in their job search process. It's like they gave up on our cohort or were too oblivious to notice the huge cracks. There are several examples of this which I won't get into because I don't want the cult to figure out who I am.

HY bootcamp is considered the best front-end program. The reality is that all the other reputable bootcamps are full stack. It's the only game in Canada for front-end, but that does not make it a five-star program. I wouldn't discourage anyone from attending, because it does help. But know that you will have to do a lot of learning and hustling on your own, to a level that is heavily downplayed in the marketing.

Hey there - thank you for sharing your feedback. I'm sorry that the experience you had with our bootcamp wasn't what you hoped it would be. I appreciate having your review on here, though, because sometimes we are asked why we have so many positive reviews... Read More

It sounds like you were able to find employment despite your dissatisfaction, which I'm happy to hear. Thanks again for sharing your opinion, it will help other potential students figure out the right questions to ask when they're deciding which bootcamp to join.

"Nine life-changing weeks"

HackerYou was the solution I needed. I took the part-time web development fundamentals course, which fit my retail store schedule, and then quit my job when I got into the bootcamp. Just a month and a half out of bootcamp I got a fantastic job as a web developer.

At HackerYou we learned industry-relevant languages, best practices, and tools that I use at my job every day. Even since my cohort ended in January, HackerYou has updated its curriculum with the most popular Javascript topics and latest tools for accessibility.

I loved that there was no massive lecture hall, no old professor teaching an outdated curriculum, and no competitive atmosphere. This school is welcoming and fun, something I didn't think could help me learn as much as I did. The instructors and mentors are top notch: they are as committed to every student's learning are they are their well-being. They will push you to do your best, but make sure you're taking care of yourself.

I also made amazing friends and invaluable connections all over the tech scene in Toronto from HackerYou's extensive network of alumni (who remain heavily involved in the HackerYou community - that says something).

My team at work is 100% HackerYou graduates and I wouldn't have it any other way.

I literally owe my career to this school, and highly recommend even trying out a free workshop just to see what it's like!!
