Taking this course was one of the best decisions I've ever made. The course work was clear and concise. The instructors were all incredible, both from their knowledge of the subject matter, and their passion to teach. And it doesn't end at graduation. The folks in Career Services are with you every step of the way, in the search for a new career. With their help, I was able to dive into a new career within weeks of graduating.
I moved to Ohio to attend We Can Code It during the Fall of 2016 and it was definitely worth it! Anybody could enroll into this boot-camp, regardless if you don’t have any experience with programming. They do offer grants for some students if they fit the requirement which is helpful to some. My friend recommended me to go to a coding boot-camp because it was an alternative route of going to college, she was totally right about that! Depending on which campus you attend, Cleveland or Columbus, the campus will teach you the fundamentals of C# and .Net (Cleveland) or Java(Columbus). The instructors were kind and helpful to me and to the other students as well. We learned about what essentials of being a full-stack developer like C#, .Net, HTML, CSS, jQuery, SQL, and many more. It was defi...Read more
I joined the 2016 accelerated 3 month program June of 2016 after my father told me about it. I had been trying to teach myself to code hoping to change careers. We Can Code IT took me from hoping to doing! Despite utilizing a number of resources my transition was very slow on my own, but the program provided the structure, guidance and expert staff to make my transition a reality. Many people have asked what's the biggest difference between teaching myself and joining the camp. My answer is, before I was hoping to become a software engineer and now I am one! Any one can learn to code but without the expert guidance and support of We Can Code IT I'd likely still be randomly taking different online courses with no clear path to employment. Instead, the guidance of the WCCI staff and the s...Read more
This is a really good program. In the bootcamp you go through and learn full-stack development in the .NET framework. Specifically it's building web applications through an ASP.NET MVC framework. It's fun but also very technical. There are times where you may think that it isn't for you and there are times when you feel so thrilled that your code compiled correctly after an eternity of errors. It'll come to be the norm in your new career.
Amazing network of classmates who are all on pretty much the same level as you. There is a great incentive to work together and you develop a good network for after you finish your program of lots of people will soon be in the IT field as well.
Supportive instructors. The people who are teaching you are definitely there for you and want yo...Read more
This is a no holds barred experience. The bootcamp covered so much content which gives you many skills to take forward into a developer position. The structure could be more integrated for a more complete experience with regards to job search and networking. The cohort members were very diverse. I would love to see more of an individualized plan for students to meet their different learning needs. I believe a regular progress report on mastery of individual coding skills would have been helpful for tutoring and smaller group or peer to peer instruction. The location created additional cost for students being downtown Cleveland with parking. I think this should be rolled into the price of the bootcamp. Overall, you walk away with a knowledgebase of many different skills such as Agile, C...Read more
I have heard so many great things about We Can Code IT that made me want to join the bootcamp. Although I am a new student and haven't yet graduated, I know I made the right decision to attend. The class is challenging, but I feel well prepared for each new challenge I am presented with. The main reason why I chose to take the bootcamp was that I have been interest in learning coding for a while, but was not able to motivate myself to learn so much on my own. Having experienced the bootcamp for just a few weeks, I can already say that it is invaluable to have such experienced instructors leading the class as well as classmates to discuss problems with. I look forward to learning much more and starting a new career as a developer.
I just completed We Can Code IT's full time 12 week program. I found it challenging, but I'm quite a bit older than most of the other students. I'm changing careers and I'm hopeful that my We Can Code IT Certificate of Software Engineering can help me get a fulfilling job in tech. I've already talked to a lot of employers and recruiters and I have my first interview scheduled for later this morning.
I enjoyed working with Shana during the application process (and she was always helpful and available throughout the program when I needed help with anything). Mel is an awesome instructor. She really cares about her students, too. She's crafted a solid curriculum and her deep knowledge and passion for development shows. Lauren is a great instructor, too and she really has a talent for mak...
Mel is a superb instructor who is able to explain the information in different ways if you don't get it the first way it is presented. One big plus about this program is learning Computational Thinking. I am not cognizant of other programs teaching this.
You will learn Agile project management, is an iterative approach to planning and guiding project processes. It might be used in your workplace and having exposure now will benefit you later. Again, this is another skill I haven't heard being practiced in bootcamps.
Mel has heaps of patience, a great sense of humor, and works well under pressure... Because we were the pilot program, many things were not in place, like a syllabus ;) I think this was good in one way - for us - the students. For those of us who like structure and k...Read more
