"The Best Bootcamp Out There!"

This was the best decision I ever made! I was currently in a dead-end sales job and not happy with where my career was going. I decided to take a leap of faith and do a career pivot into Computer Programming. I have now found the passion that has been... Read More

Pros: The course is full of knowledge and you might think you are drinking from the fire hose but it is well worth it!!!! Trust the process! The Instructors are there to help you no matter what, so you will not be suffering in silence! The money you are investing is worth it x5!

Cons: My cohort was during the Covid-19 pandemic so it was all virtual - which was still amazing! But if you're not used to online learning - that might be a challenge - but the instructors and the team are there to help you and they made it just as wonderful! The only thing i would have to say is that I wish they offered a hard copy book of the material... all the material is online - but for myself I need a text book in order to make notes in.

"Skill Distillery"

Being a software developer was the top option I wanted to pursue as I was getting ready to transition out of the military. I wanted to attend a program that is veteran-friendly and teaches technologies that are highly sought after in the industry. Skill... Read More

The program was designed to not only teach you how to code, but also teaches you the ability to learn new technologies. It’s also designed to train you how to collaborate with other developers using tools to help you be succesful at your work. Not very many bootcamps teaches Java, because it’s a hard language to learn in my point of view. But, they really make sure that everyone doesn’t get left behind. Another good thing about this program is that they help you prepare for the Oracle Certified Associate Java SE8 Certification. I didn’t get to take it because I was one of the strugglinG students, but the fact that they offer it, is a great deal itself.

The instructors were very knowledgeable and they were definitely industry experts. They have dedicated instructors for each technologies, but whenever I needed help with a topic, even the instructor from a different topic was willing to help out. Like I mentioned earlier, I was one of the struggling students in our cohort, but I got all the help that I need, from the TA, classmates, and instructors. This was definitely a great experience for me.

"Skill Distillery Rocks!"

I attended Skill Distillery in 2019 shortly after leaving the military. Everything about the experience exceeded my expectations from the first day of class through graduating and getting my first job as a developer. The instructors are amazing and the... Read More

The program is intense. It's not easy, and is not for everyone. You need to have the aptitude for this kind of work to be successful here, and they will help you decide if you are a good candidate during the admissions process. You will begin coding on day one, and it doesn't slow down. They call this a boot camp for a reason! Between class and homework, plan on putting in at least 60 hours a week.

I was amazed at what my classmates and I were able to produce in this short time. You will write literally dozens of small projects while learning Java, JavaScript, SQL, and HTML. You will also design and build two fully functional web projects for the midterm and final. A week or two into the course, I watched the class ahead of us present their final projects and I remember thinking there is NO WAY I could build something like that. A couple of months later I was even more amazed when I did.

You might be thinking this sounds great, but can you actually get a job coming out of a boot camp? In a word, YES. Some of my classmates had interviews prior to graduation. I had a substantial commute to/from class which left me no free time, so I decided to wait until graduation to start seriously applying for jobs. I sent out maybe 15 or 20 resumes. Within days of graduation I had a promising phone interview. That lead to in person technical interview two days later, and I had a job offer before the week was over. I have been working at this company for over a year, and can honestly say it's the best job I've ever had.

If you are motivated, disciplined, and not afraid of drinking from the fire hose, Skill Distillery can offer you the express lane to a career as a developer. Give them a call. You will be glad you did.
