"Not what it says"

It's not what it says, be careful when you join this program, It's all FREE resources, plus the projects that it says that you are going to build, are the classic projects like 'tic-tac-toe', 'TODO-APP', you even do tictactoe twice... I suggest that you... Read More

"I am here to downgrade this misleading average rating"

Wow, I'm really surprised that Microverse rating is 4,6/5, I was expecting to see something more realistic like 2 or 3 at most.

I must say, my first impression about their program was really good, I didn't know that companies that would teach you first... Read More

But in fact when you find out the truth about the program it is too late. Once you complete your first month, you already owe them $15,000. No matter what you did, whether if you finish the program or not you just have to pay for it, even if you leave and pay for another courses, it doesn't matter. The only way to not owe this huge amount is not working with tech ever in your life.

It is too late to quit the program when you figure out that the only honest thing about it is having coding partners to help holding you accountable.
The material you will use to study is TheOdinProject and other FREE STUFF on the web.
The people that will review your code are OTHER STUDENTS, JUST LIKE YOU.
The mock interviews are with OTHER STUDENTS.
When they say they guarantee you will master the topics in the course, THEY LIE. I finished Rails curriculum knowing that there was a lot more to study.

The best decision I took in my life was simply quit and continue studying on my own (as if I wasn't already doing that).

$15,000 for free material on the web is a joke. I wouldn't ever have started this program if I knew the truth before.

The course is too long, which is great overall. But is a weak point to those who have financial problems and cannot study 8 hours / day over several months due to work or other issues.

"Microverse is the best thing that has ever happened to me."

I am 6 months into the program right now. I have learned so many things in these 6 months. And I have not paid a single cent yet. It's true - we don't pay Microverse anything until we get a job that pays us $1000+/month.

Microverse has truly changed my... Read More

Did Microverse teach me all this? No. I taught all this myself. Microverse provided me the tools and resources to teach myself. The Student Success team constantly motivated me to move forward. My stand-up team and all of my coding partners held me accountable each day to make progress. I collaborated with coding partners from all over the world and made 30+ projects in HTML & CSS/ RUBY/ RUBY ON RAILS/ JAVASCRIPT/ REACT& REDUX.

Most importantly, Microverse taught me how to learn.

At Microverse, we teach ourselves because when you land a job you need to learn their culture, their codebase, their best practices, their documentation. There won't be any "teachers" or "classrooms" where you would sit and take note of these things. You need to teach yourself. Of course, there are people who would help you. That's why we have mentors, TSEs, and most importantly Student Success.

Microverse has a dedicated career service team that works with you throughout your job search and just like you, they don't stop until you land a job.

Lastly, I have seen many negative reviews here. Before you give them much thought, ask them to reveal their names, ask them to own their reviews, ask them to take responsibility for what they speak and not hide behind their screens and spread spam.

"At Microverse, I only not mastered software engineering skills but also mastered the needed soft skills that puts me on the spotlight of my potential employers."

Every organization has its of the BAD and the GOOD. With those bad and good attributes in mind we choose to affiliate ourselves with some and then leave others behind based on what they offer. Because I'm with Microverse, I chose to write a review as... Read More

PROS
1. Microverse does charge you any fee when you enroll. You only enter into an Income Share Agreement(ISA). You pay 15% of your monthly salary(>= $1000) until you settle the school fee of $15000 USD.
2. For Microverse, the ISA applies to everyone regardless of your geographical location or your race.
3. Microverse has a dedicated career coaching team that helps her students to find their dream jobs. As at the time of writing this review, 80% of the total students who have completed the curriculum got employed within three months. Other students are in their various stages of interviews.
4. In Microverse, all the students take a compulsary professional skills development curriculum alongside the technical skills curriculum. This is meant to groom the students well so that they fit in well at their workplaces. These include conflict resolution, how to write technical articles, the best way to introduce yourself to your potential employer, time management, etc.
5. In Microverse, every project or assignment that you do must be review and approved by the at least one Technical Support Expert(TSE) if the project is a mini project. If the project is a capstone project be reviewed and approved by at least three TSEs. Both approvals are based on the minimum requirement set down by the school. These and other things are done to avoid any technical skills acquisition backlog and also motivate the student for their current achievements.
6. In Microverse, you start using all the tools used for collaborative coding. For instance, Git and GitHub, Heroku, etc from day one you start the course. This makes the students become proficient in using these tools before joining the labor force.
7. Above all, the program is a mastery learning, which means, you progress as you master the modules in the curriculum. Your mastery is of the each module is determined by the mini projects and the capstone projects that you build.

CONS
1. The program is a full-time program. There is no arrangement for part-time. That being said, if you plan to enroll in Microverse, you cannot be working at the same time attending classes.
2. Microverse does not have lecturers who deliver lessons from a certain location for the students to listen to or take notes. Student only follow a curated curriculum for the students to use.
3. You must have a high speed internet connection in order to enroll in the course.

"The only thing this school really offers is accountability by partnering you up with another students."

Pros

- Everything is automated , i haven't interacted... Read More

The review of paying 15k for the odinProject is as spot on as can be.
From day one all i've been doing is following the OdinProject and a few other FREE resources.
All TSE do is point things out that are wrong with your code, they don't even tell you what you can do to improve.

"Very expensive odinproject links"

If you're thinking in starting at microverse, allow me to save you some money, go to theodinproject.com and follow the lessons there.

At microverse when you start, you'll be assigned a mentor, which is another student, usually with no knowledge in programming,... Read More

The so called code reviews, are also done by other students, and here the same applies, limited knowledge and experience.

No teachers to teach, just links to theodinprojects. This is the most expensive way of paying to go to a free website.

If you don't want to pay 15K for a quite useless curriculum, go to the odin project, hackerank.com and exercism.io. That is all you need.
