The knowledge I gained in this bootcamp could have taken me a year on my own; the guidance through the program is delicately designed to help fresh grads know what they are missing to become professionals. The emphasis on continuous learning can change the mindset of whoever takes this course, not to mention the brilliant guest speakers who deliver tech talks about a variety of computer science work related topics. Finding a job after finishing the program was made easy, due to the exposure we had as students to companies and to the excellent skills we were able to add to our resumes. In summary, SEFactory is the 1-3 years of experience that employers ask for.
There are many pros for joining SE Factory but one stands out of the rest, and its the ability to learn how to learn. We where constantly thrown projects that we didint know much about and urged to step up and solve it on our own. The projects would then become subject to code reviews, done in front of everyone so all would learn from each other. Emphasis on coding style along with efficient approaches to solutions . In no way did our instructor really step in to help us with specific technologies, he always worked with us on an abstracted level where we would have to generate the solutions for ourselves. We where given assignments that are meant to enhance our abilities and skills to cope with the growing market. There is a massive gap between what an individual learns in university an...Read more
SEFactory has been a life changing experience for me.
SEfactory has taught me crucial coding skills and problem solving techniques that otherwise would have been hard to acquire all by myself. I learned about coding standards and different technologies, webservices and building a website fully from the ground up. SEFactory sets up it's students with the knowledge starting from the OS level and reaching the front end of web development.
It has helped me majorly in finding a suitable job and a clear career path.
Without SE Factory I wouldn't be able to pursue my career in computer science.
Now I am a full stack web developer with potential to learn anything i would like to just because i learned how to learn, i learned how to start , where to look .. isn't cool to increase our learning capability!?
3 months were enough for me to be this person who look for new challenges , new opportunities with a self confidence.
Thank you SE Factory!
SE Factory was the best thing happened to me ever,
I changed my mind about everything, not just bits and bytes.
SE Factory program is great, they teach everything anyone needs to be a part of the real world
I think it is mandatory after graduating from university.
I got a BS degree in Information technology and computing but that wasn't enough, in every job interview i was asked for experience, after several interviews i got frustrated and i thought i won't have the chance to get a job in my major so i started working in several other domains, but i was sure there was a way!! SE-Factory was it.
SE-Factory will not teach you a programming language, it will teach you how to think and how to tackle problems for finding the right solution regardless of the programming language you are using. In the end if you know how to solve a problem you will find and learn the syntax to write the code easily (google is your friend! :) )
SE-Factory taught us that with the right mindset we can achieve our potentials and more.

First of all we can safely assume that with a 90 percent hiring rate among there alumni sefactory does not have one con !
There are many pros that I can think about. I will be listing a few .
-Besides the tech enhancement that you actually receive from this program, sefactory as well provide there students with a great cultural and inspiration enhancement where the instructor of the program implants the idea of perseverance needed to succeed in any given task at any field.
-It provides with the tech enhancement that you need to reach at least a really great junior developer position at any company in the region.
-It establishes connections that you would have needed years to acquire in a short period of time.
Sefactory is great success story in enlightenig the young developers ...Read more
Challenging & fun, with an exponential learning curve! An amazing experience that changed my mindset and made me gain self-confidence which was reflected in every job interview that took part after the bootcamp.
I eventually ended up staying at the company I worked for after receiving a new title as a direct result of the boot camp.
This newly acquired mindset made me get out of my comfort zone and explore options that were never considered before.
I believe that going through such an experience makes you realize your ability to keep adding to your skills set, success stories, and ultimately your career!
I now truly believe that I`m capable of acquiring any skill whenever needed."
During the 14 weeks I have acquired the skills to adapt in rigid environments and solve problems in a very limited time. My perspective for software development has changed, I have become more efficient when it comes to my computer and development in general. To put it in few words, through this boot-camp I learned how to learn. Recommend anyone who is interested to improve and take it to the next level to join.
Imagine going through 3 months of condensed work and you become someone very knowledgeable of his domain if you are a fresh graduate, I studied computer science and didn't believe I'm going to work in the tech domain for the lack of experience and knowledge I had, after completing the Bootcamp I was offered a job in a well-respected company as a UX/UI engineer. Big thanks to SEFactory for the opportunity they offered, the mindset it taught me, it is priceless.
I advise any fresh graduate who is looking to build his future to join this Bootcamp.
SE Factory is a life changing experience. It's not just about the languages, frameworks, or even the concepts you learn. It's about the discipline and discovering your true abilities; you learn how to learn efficiently, and everything else falls under this. Other than the technical side, we went through a series of hands-on workshops to hone our soft skills and remain up to date with current coding standards, workplace ethics, and emerging technologies. All done to prepare us for the workplace, which paid off extremely well as all of us who graduated received multiple job offers in the first week after graduation, and were employed in the second week.
After getting my Computer Engineering degree I felt empty after few weeks of doing nothing, so I googled game development, installed unity engine and went into a wonderful journey.
That journey was fun until I realized that I need to support myself by getting a real job. This is where I started to think that SE-Factory might be the best start for my career path.
For our first day in SE-Factory, we had to write few simple scripts with bash with a ridiculous deadline. I didn't have any previous experience with bash, which made me go through some stupid mistakes like putting spaces between = while assigning variables, and such. I had mixed emotions anger, confusion, anxiety and enjoyment.

The program was one of the best experiences of my life it changed my personality and the way I tackle problems.
During this program I filled the gaps that I missed in the university. Where we used to focus on the theory rather than on the technical skills that is required in the market. Many topics that I learned in the bootcamp I was familiar with before. But there were always something new to learn so I can say I gained a certain depth of understanding in all the topics from front end to back end and databases and cloud and the whole cycle of development.
The program was not only a technical journey but also a self exploration journey. We used to do check-ins In the morning where we used to talk about certain problems we are facing how we are feeling and repeat that at the end o...Read more
