"Awesome Place to Learn"
I came to Velocity 360 after I had tried to teach myself iOS for 2 months and was beginning to lose my way. I had flip-flopped a couple of times on what I should learn and had truly wasted a lot of time because of the indecision. I was taking a "learn-by-doing"... Read More
I ultimately enrolled in the fulltime iOS course where we covered in the two days what I had tried to teach myself in 6 weeks. The instructor, Dan, encouraged us to learn from each other and work together to succeed (and fail) as a class - it genuinely gave me the sense of network and community I lacked when I worked from home and coffee shops.
Having graduated two weeks ago, I've already drawn interest from several early-stage startups in NYC and look forward to securing a fulltime role in the near term. The team at Velocity 360, especially Dan, have been instrumental in guiding me through the application process, particulalry in preparing me for technical evaluations and resume screens.
For the price-poiint and value of what I learned at Velocity 360, I'm confident I made the right choice over Fullstack Academy and Flatiron School. Truly appreciate all their hard work and dedication in helping me jumpstart my transition into tech.
"Cut out the BS and actually learn how to make real apps"
I'm a current student in both the iOS and Node/React weekend courses. I started off just doing the iOS course after hearing about it from a friend. I went to a demo and was sold. Dan knows exactly what the industry is looking for and thoroughly knows... Read More
This is the best learning I've experienced in my journey to become a developer. I've used all of the learn-to-code websites and tutorials you've probably already done yourself. I also attended a 12-week full stack-lite course to build up my skills, which got me a part-time job in the industry. But I'm looking to get that full time job.
In fact, I've already registered for the part time bootcamp for iOS + Node and I'm confident I'll get a job by the end of this program.
You are coding on day one. As another student pointed out, there are no long lectures about theory. You code along and things are explained as you go. And then you build the project again. And then again. And then another time. Instead of having CS-type lectures on what a loop is and then doing some obscure exercise which doesn't really help you understand a real-world application, you write a loop in your program that does something you'd really want to do for a real app. It certainly doesn't hurt to have some prior experience, but it's not that difficult to understand what's going on if you're a beginner.
We're accessing third-party APIs and even writing our own. We're creating real apps based on examples of what you would want to actually make. We're learning UI principles too so we can make apps that don't look like garbage.
And most importantly, we're focusing on technologies that are the future. Do you really want to graduate with 25 other Rails devs who are competing with you for entry-level jobs? If you go through these courses, namely the boot camps, you're going to separate yourself from the rest of the pack.
"Learn By Building"
If you had told me that I would be able to build a ReactJS/Redux front end, a complete NodeJS back end all deployed on Heroku, create my own REST API and create a mobile app with Swift 2.0 that consumed either a 3rd party api or my own personal api, I... Read More
At Velocity 360 you literally code with the instructor, code with your peers, and code on your own from start to finish. Takeaway: you are left with several projects for your github, not just one final project. It’s intense, it’s exhausting, it’s awesome! I couldn’t have asked for more.
"The Most Efficient Way to Learn"
I took the Node JS coding course to become more familiar with Node JS, as well as programming and applications in general. The course was highly technical yet relaxing and light at the same time. Coming from someone who has tried to learn coding on my... Read More
