| ||Anonymous ||Having come into the program with almost 0 experience, it has been rewarding. However, that being said there are some drawbacks that need to be mentioned first. The course content is not detailed and more often than not links for extra reading is provided, which, considering the cost of the course, is unheard of. This isn't to say that it is unintelligible, but it would be nice to have a fully broken down explanation of a concept, as more often than not the content does not show the whole picture, and you will find that the concepts that go over your head in the start (which happens a lot!) will start to make sense later on in the course, though if explained at the time it could have been helpful. And while the instructors are accommodating of questions, they blow through the content, which may or may not be their own fault -- just the way the system is set up. The point of projects is to get the whole class up to speed, and is usually where one will solve most of their doubts of things learned thus far, however many doubts revolve around fundamentals that create easily avoidable problems, even after project 1 (total of 4 projects). In retrospect Through this course what I realized is that they are simply teaching you to *learn how to code*, and promotes a culture of self-learning alongside communal learning, which is mentioned on day 1.
If you want to learn how to code and begin your journey in tech, *and find a stable job with decent pay* (the ISP of this and all tech bootcamps), look no further.
my advice to someone interested is this: be prepared to do a lot of learning on your own, and when things get tough, don't quit. You get what you put into it, and if you work hard and diligently, you can become a great developer. But that isn't to say that things can't improve. |
