So be prepared to give it all you got. I did and couldn't be happier with what I've learned.
"An amazing and professional experience with amazing instructors and students"
4 Months ago I was at a point in my life that I knew I needed a change. I just didn't know I needed THIS change. I am the kind of person that does their research. I read a lot about bootcamps and how they compared to the current market of available jobs,... Read More and what recruiters in this field thought about graduates. Honestly, not all of the reading was positive. One of the biggest issues was the material that these classes covered and the lack of information retention. That was one of the major reasons I chose this program. Skill Distillery certainly understands what the current job market is looking for. They picked the languages and materials they did to insure you are successful. The instructors genuinely care about you and your future and want you to succeed. The materials they cover are exactly what you need to drink through a firehose to land that job as a software developer. The best part is how they teach it. They aren't just teaching you a coding language. They are teaching you how to be that programmer that is versatile and capable of continuing to learn new things when you finish the school. I feel empowered to apply to jobs and succeed. I've done a lot of things in my life, military, law enforcement, masters degrees. Never in my 37 years have I ever met a team of amazing instructors of this caliber. When they say they care, they mean it. When they say trust them and their process, you should. The emotional rollercoaster of learning this level of material is real, but I never felt alone or unsupported at any level. I never felt like I was frustrating an instructor or my fellow classmates by taking the time to ask the questions I needed to. In addition to all of this, I made some amazing friends. The students I reached out to that were having the same issues and quickly became life long friends and colleagues. If you're looking to make that leap this is the place to jump from.
I graduated from the March - July 2023 cohort. The course will be a full time job including homework assignments on a majority of weekends that will take up at least 2-8 hours depending on the assignment. They offer TA hours on Saturday morning which... Read More are very helpful in building an understanding of what you learned that week and building it into your weekend homework.

"If theres a question....Skill Distillery has/is the answer!"
Skill Distillery set the bar for what to expect in any course moving forward. Still amazed at all the material that was not only covered but retained in this 16 week course. This course took individuals (some with absolute zero coding background) and... Read More produced competent developers with instructional overview of: Java Fundamentals JDBC, JSPs, JPA MySQL SpringBoot Angular/Typescript HTML/CSS ...and much more 1. The staff was ALWAYS available to assist and provide guidance. Additionally they are all passionate about teaching and making sure the students truly understand which made learning that much easier 2. The level documentation and reference material given is outstanding, haven't taken a course that even comes close. 3.

This course required dedication and personal accountability, but if you can do that, the end will more than justify the means and pay huge dividends.

Read More the staff from teachers to TA's are extremely passionate about what they do and truly care about each individual in the cohort. As for the knowledge I gained in the 16 week Java Full-Stack bootcamp, I believe that everyone in the cohort was set up for success from day one.
