Anonymous I did the full web development bootcamp in Victoria in 2018. It was a 10-week course at the time, but now I see they've increased the length, as they should. I struggled through much of the course but what is disappointing is I felt quite unsupported for most of the time. Victoria is a satellite location meaning we don't have teachers in-house but watch the lectures streamed from Vancouver. We were constantly being forgotten about by the teachers (they would start teaching without making sure we could hear, etc.). The teaching itself was very rushed. It was just watching a dude rapidly code for 2 hours. Needless to say, I didn't learn much from the lectures. The projects themselves were ok and they were very challenging, and while there are mentors there to help, the range of ability to help varied significantly. There were only 1 or 2 mentors out of about 6 that were knowledgeable and caring enough to sit down with you to work through something. I struggled and cried my way through. I am proud of myself for graduating from the program, but I felt grossly unprepared coming out of the program for any sort of developer job. LHL tells you you will feel like this, of course, but almost 2 years later, I still feel angry that the course was so rushed and I finished the course with huge gaps in my understanding. I am disappointed we were treated so poorly and not given more support. I am not quite sure where to go from here as I was not one of the people lucky enough to get a real developer job right out of the bootcamp, so I am out of practice and haven't built on anything we were taught. I desperately want to get a real developer job someday, but I am now grossly under-qualified for anything. I have resorted to going back to online courses to try to fill in the gaps in my knowledge, but it will take a long time to get my skills to where they should be to get a career in development. I feel like LHL took way too much money for what was offered to me at the time. I know they've improved some things since then, and I wish I could get a refund for the poor education I received in Victoria.
