"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....

But these students did not give up and handled it the second go around, becoming excellent programmers in the process.
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.
