Locations: Online, Geneva, Madrid, Barcelona
Course Description:

Train yourself in the skills needed to analyse large amounts of data automatically and find patterns that improve business decisions in any field of professional activity.

This program is aimed at absolute beginners who are considering a career in data analytics or to use it as part of their existing skillset.

By completing this program you will be able to:
- Analyse data sets and determine what additional treatments are needed to work with them.
- Define business hypotheses that can actually be tested by processing the data.
- Understand and apply algorithms to perform data mining or create machine learning models.
- Present conclusions to both a technical and business orientated audience.

Part Time - Web Development with JavaScript

  • Cost: €4,700 - €4,700
  • Duration: 10 weeks
Locations: Online, Barcelona, Madrid, Geneva
Course Description:

Designed for students with absolutely no prior programming knowledge, you will learn to code and become a front-end developer by learning anf applying front-end technologies (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Vue, and Bootstrap to name a few), and “MERN Stack” technologies (MongoDB, Express, React and Node.js). Because the program covers both front and back-end programming, after 3 months (500hrs), you'll become a full stack developer, ready to land a job in the opportunity-rich world of tech. This program is aimed at anyone who wants to get their coding career started.

“MERN” is an acronym for four tools: MongoDB, Express, React, and Node.js. These four tools, when integrated together as a stack architecture, allow you to perform certain back-end functions without having to learn a whole new back-end language. While traditional back-end languages like Java are essential in the corporate world and for large-scale software development, MERN Stack is a very solid alternative for the initial stages of startups and boasts a huge demand on the market.

"Ubiqum review"

Interesting Program, I wanted to do this for a long time.

For me personally, it was very difficult, though, since I didn't have any previous coding experience and started from scratch.
The first project (soccer website) requires some, at least average... Read More

I think there should be a more individual approach to teaching and learning since all people are different and understand things in different ways.

Otherwise I like the friendly staff, knowledgeable mentors, and a relaxed atmosphere.

In terms of the office itself: It doesn't really fit the course, it's very loud, both outside thanks to the traffic and inside due to the coffee machine, it's also hot and the air feels very heavy. Still no air conditioning which was promised a month ago. The chairs cause back pain after sitting for a couple of hours.

P.S.: I wish all the best for the future of Ubiqum.

"My Experience With Ubiqum"

Hi there,

My story starts like many others who attend coding boot-camps - I was working at a job I didn't enjoy and I felt very strongly that I could do so much more. After some consideration I saw that there were many programming boot-camps available... Read More

After I decided I wanted to make the career switch to Web Development, Ubiqum immediately stood out to me as a first choice. In particular, I was able to register for a 5 month course that included not just front-end work with HTML/CSS/JavaScript, but back-end work with Java as well. I wanted to be able to call myself a full-stack web developer, and I wasn't confident I could do that in the 9 week programs offered by many other boot-camps.

Even if other boot-camps did offer substantial 5 month courses, they'd have a hard time comparing to Ubiqum's quality of training and care.

The first time I spoke with someone from Ubiqum I was surprised by how sincere, attentive and caring they appeared to be. I assumed that was normal for the first point of contact at a school, and may not be the case with the other staff and mentors. I was very wrong! From the very beginning each and every person at Ubiqum I've worked with has been not just incredibly helpful and knowledgeable but personally invested in my success. I couldn't have been more impressed.

With the incredible support of the staff and mentors at Ubiqum I've gone from coding plain HTML / CSS web pages in the first few days to suddenly working with JavaScript to manipulate JSON data fetched from a live API, to making my very own Vue web-app from the ground up using a Firebase back end, to designing a game in Java using a back end I've written myself. While you're never finished learning when it comes to programming, I can't state enough how much I've learned in a short amount of time and how confident I am in my skills thanks to Ubiqum.

It should be worth nothing that none of this comes easy. The program requires hard work, dedication, patience and perseverance. Programming comes more easily to some than it does to others - Yet thanks to Ubiqum's mentors taking such a personal approach to working with students instead of just offering one-size-fits-all solutions, anyone who walks in the door here is capable of taking great strides into this extremely challenging field.

I'm always skeptical of online reviews. If you'd like, I'd be happy to personally answer any questions you might have. You can reach me at BrianMJWood@gmail.com

Deciding on a programming boot camp is a difficult process, but I can't recommend Ubiqum enough. The phrase I keep using with my family and friends who ask about my experience is that it's "honestly one of the best things I've ever done for myself."

Do it for yourself too!

"My experience at Ubiqum Code Academy"

If you want to change your career drastically and enter the amazing world of IT I think the best place to start is Ubiqum!
Why?
1. Because you will learn things by doing, which is vital in development/coding: you will develop 3 real-world projects from... Read More

2. Because you will have a very flexible, personal paying method. You can pay the remaining 50% after getting the job! And even it seems to be very expensive you won't have any financial difficulties while paying, they make it really easy for you!

3. Because you will work with agile methodologies, which is mostly used in the majority of IT companies. You will work in a really nice international environment with people from different countries. You will have helpful mentors and coworkers.

4. Because the programs here are aimed at job placement and you will have the support of Ubiqum´s HR Manager during the applying period whenever you need it, even after finishing the job-support week!

Good luck!

"Ubiqum Code Academy Review (October 2018 - April 2019)"

I took the course coming from a non-technical background, knowing almost nothing about coding. After 5 months of full-time courses in Ubiqum, I can say that I am quite confident in working on real-life data projects, especially coding in R.

The methodology... Read More

I would definitely advise the bootcamp for people who want to quickly get to a decent level in machine learning projects. If you are more interested in Data Engineering, this may not be the ideal program for you.

Pros:
- Well structured curriculum that gets harder and more real
- One month final project with a company
- Really helpful mentors
- Contacts with companies in Barcelona for job support
- Learning from others in your cohort

Cons:
- Lack of personalized code review sessions
- No SQL in curriculum (they are planning to change this point)
- No deep learning
- Some data is not from real-life examples. Would be better to have all projects from real-life challenges.

"Not For Everyone, But Great If It Clicks"

I came to this program with 1 year of experience in C++, albeit a year of experience that took place a decade ago. With that in mind, although I couldn't qualify as a pure beginner, I came into Ubiqum with no experience of front-end or back-end languages... Read More

Today, Ubiqum has given me the foundations of HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and Java, along with a few modern frameworks. It's blisteringly fast paced and pretty much everything I could have hoped for. If you're confident that this is the kind of career path you want to take and willing to stare down the screen when problems arise (and they will) then the course is well worth the money. If not, however, it's a simple fact that the structure and lesson-free nature of the program will probably be demotivating. Members of my cohort certainly feel this way and all I can say is that what you're really paying for is a constructive learning environment, not a university degree.

In short, it's perfect for the kind of person who has started and enjoyed a lot of online tutorials, but never finished them, or carried on in the long term.

Here's a brief pro and con list, for good measure:

Pros:

-The tutors are honestly the best aspect of the course, and the ability to ask precise, detailed questions when encountering problems makes all the difference.
-Having a community of like-minded people, all in similar positions in their lives (mid-career changes, etc) makes the whole process feel much less daunting than learning alone at home.
-Putting in the hours, just like you would at a real workplace, also has the advantage of giving you confidence that you could actually integrate into a real office.
-Jost, the career advisor for the Berlin program, goes out of his way to find you opportunities and projects that suit your long-term goals. If you want to walk out of here with real world experience, he'll make it happen.

Cons:

-Although the tutors are the best part of the course, they're also still human, and there should be more than two per course. I mean this not only as a student, who would occasionally find that there was no one available to help for hours on end (this is particularly true on induction days for new cohorts), but for the tutors as well, who end up sharing three people's amount of work between two.
-Again, if you aren't someone who actively learns in their spare time, or is capable of picking up entirely new skills very quickly, it's possible that the course will be frustrating, if not outright overwhelming. You get to work from day one and it never slows down. For me, this was great, but if you fall behind once, it can feel difficult to ever catch up.
-Some of the course materials are out of date and effectively useless, which means that tutors need to adapt or create new projects. Their's is a heroic effort, but it suggests that those at the top aren't half as reactive as their employees. Everyone would benefit from faster, more decisive leadership.

The “Learning by doing” is a quite different method, and at the beggining you can feel unsecure and a bit stressed. But after just a couple of months you can see yourself doing stuff that you didn’t even imagine.
