"Operation Spark is a well organized coding Bootcamp that has given many people in South Louisiana a new career."

It sounds like the other reviewer on switchup could not complete the Bootcamp phase of the course, and they feel OP Spark slighted them. That biased opinion takes away from individuals (of all backgrounds) who have worked very hard and completed the program.... Read More

I am currently in the job hut phase of the program. And like it is mentioned on the website, the instructors will not forget you during this phase. We are currently meeting once a day and reviewing our application process, interview training, and personal projects.

It is a tough time for many industries, including web development. But I am proud to have been through this program and made myself a software developer. Mainly because my previous career was oilfield, and my growing philosophy about renewable energy being the future was conflicting with that career.

I would highly recommend Operation Spark to anyone with a passion for changing their career to Tech. Be ready to work hard and to 'learn how to learn'.
