"OCCS helped push me towards an exciting career in Web Development"

I really loved building Legos as a kid.

So in early 2017, I decided to take the plunge and leave my job working in marketing and digital media to become a web developer. I was really intimidated at the beginning -- there were a couple of guys in the class... Read More

I can't talk enough about what OCCS offered me -- a chance for a new career and new ways of thinking. Everyday I get to go to work and build metaphorical Legos on a computer... and be well compensated for it!

"One of the best."

When I first started my journey into being a web developer I was completely wet behind the ears. I knew people who had coded and heard lots about how Coders make good money, but had no idea what I was getting into. I self-started by taking a few free... Read More

I decided to speak with some of the people I knew in the Tech industry about coding. No matter who I asked I kept getting the same response; “If you want to learn code and make really good money, get really good at JavaScript.” I scarcely knew what JavaScript was, so I started digging and researching. I found some random resources through online courses, but they barely scratched the surface on the JavaScript iceberg. I needed the bootcamp experience. There were plenty of bootcamps to choose from: some were 6 months, some were 3, others taught Python, and others C# or some other random languages. I was completely lost on which to choose, but because I remembered what I heard from my Tech friends, I narrowed it down to the ones that focused on JavaScript.

In my hours of searching an ad for the Orange County Code School caught my eye. I immediately noticed the school offered web development with a focus on JavaScript and promised to transform new students having no JavaScript knowledge to “job ready’ coders in 3 months. What a promise! I decided to show up to an information session and that was when I first met Ron Perris. Ron is the director of OCCS and the reason it's one of best bootcamps. At OCCS, Ron takes personal responsibility for the success of the students, every single one. The school has a well deserved 100% student employment rate thanks to Ron’s infinite knowledge and mentorship of each cohort.

When I first started in the camp I was a terrible coder, I wasn’t prepared for the onslaught of information. I had no idea what was going on, couldn't keep up and I struggled on a daily basis, but I made it and am so glad I pushed through! At OCCS Ron shows you the best practices and because he's been in the industry for so long, he's one of the best teachers JavaScript has to offer. You aren't getting random instructors that come and go, or previous students who become the new instructors. Ron's school has a tried and true philosophy that if you put in the work, it is a guaranteed formula for success. OCCS is the best JavaScript boot camp in the OC region to date. The lasting benefits that extend beyond just the three months of code camp are Ron’s industry expertise, his professional contacts and his relentless mission to get all his students a job as a coder, that makes the school worth every penny. I have my job thanks to Ron and every day I use things I learned at OCCS. I don't think I would've gotten that elsewhere. Just be prepared to put in the work.

Coders in the Tech industry use the analogy of drinking water from a firehose to explain the coding bootcamp experience, and they're right. Although it was tough, looking back now, I am so glad I made the choice to do it. Today I'm a full time front-end developer at a local startup, working on exciting technology on a daily basis. I am also a teaching assistant at UCI’s coding bootcamp. I would not have made those connections if it weren't for Ron and OCCS. All that I learned there, the coding skills and the skills of learning how to adopt the right mindsets, are invaluable to my foundations as a successful coder. Mostly, I'm grateful to have found a career I'm passionate about where I can make good money, that's not an easy thing to accomplish these days. OCCS helped me get there.

"Fantastic Program"

I had written 0 lines of code before I came to this school and I walked out with a job in hand doing full stack development.

For those that have some experience i overheard a classmate say "I've taken 2 years of Javascript courses at a local school and... Read More

It was a fantastic experience for me.

Whatever you might expect you should expect to write a lot of code. 9am on day 1 Ron walked and and simply said "Ok, you're going to write a lot of code in the next 3 months, let's get started", and off we went.

I found the instructors to be super knowledgable and super helpful, they always got me to think about my code and a new way. I was always intimidated to write code but they helped me be ok with knowing that the code I write is going to break, that's part of the process.

Like any school, you get out of it what you put into it. Show up, work hard, embrace mistakes, embrace the unkown. I don't really feel like I'm going out on a limb to say that this is the best code school in Orange County.

Thank you Ron and Tim.

"Learn to Code and Get a Job"

Prior to going to Orange County Code School I had been interested in a career as a computer programmer but just could never find the time to teach myself to code. I had no college education and the thought of going to school part time for a computer science... Read More

It’s probably important to mention that Ron is not there to be your best friend, he’s there to teach you how to code. If you’re looking for someone to tell you you’re doing great moving along at your own pace as you’re falling behind...OCCS is probably not for you (future employers probably won’t like that either). Ron did not spend a ton of time worrying about people’s feelings but he definitely taught us how to write JavaScript. It’s not easy learning how to program in three months, and after the course is finished there will be plenty more to learn, but if you think you are capable of picking things up pretty quickly and are okay with putting some work in outside of the hours you spend in the classroom, then OCCS will be a good place to begin learning to code.

During the course we worked on three projects, each of which expanded upon features we had used on the last and added various new technologies. It is pretty neat watching your skill set grow from project to project and feeling your confidence grow in your ability to write working code. By the end of the course you should have no problem creating a complex and functional web app.

Beyond learning to how to code and use various tools which are important in the day to day work of a software developer one of my favorite aspects of the program was getting to listen to Ron’s stories. He has a ton of experience in the industry and through talking to him you will definitely pick up some interesting knowledge about the field that will be good to have as you enter your career as a developer.

One last thing, make sure to attend your demo night! You never know where your first job as a programmer could come from and I was lucky enough to receive mine from a company I met at our demo night. There were a few people in our cohort who did not attend the demo night and who knows what opportunities you might miss out on by making that decision. OCCS was a life changing decision for me and I would recommend it to anyone who REALLY wants to learn to code, and is ready to dedicate themselves to making that happen.

"OCCS - Best Decision Ever"

OCCS has a rigorous three months of coursework. They teach all of the latest technologies and skills required to be successful as a Web Developer. The instructors are there to teach and challenge you to be the best you can. They teach you everything you need to know, and also give you the freedom to learn and grow your knowledge yourself. During my time there, I learned multiple programming languages, many new technologies and over a dozen frameworks.

You don't graduate from OCCS when they are done teaching you, you graduate once you get a Job. OCCS provides leads to you after you finish the course to help you get a job. While I ended up finding my job myself, OCCS gave me three leads with companies to help me find a job. They help you prepare your resume and LinkedIn, and prepare you for your interviews. They will give you strategies on best ways to find a job.

Two weeks ago I started my job as a Front-End Web Developer. There is still alot to learn, but I feel prepared thanks to my experience at OCCS, and I am making twice as much money (not an exaggeration) as I was before attending. More Importantly, I enjoy what I am doing. Orange County Code School was the best decision I have ever made, and I recommend it highly to anybody looking to become a Web Developer.
