For someone who is willing to give it his or her all, I would strongly recommend Hack Reactor's Software Engineering Immersive Program. I can confidently say that I finished the program feeling like not only had I learned numerous concepts that prepared me to work in the field, but also how to problem solve in situations that require grasping something new. The instructors were excellent, though much of the program's strength lies in its curriculum and how - during the junior phase - the...
Pros
-- The amount I learned particularly in the junior phase was incredible, and looking back I feel like those six weeks alone were the equivalent of at least a year in a traditional software engineering course. -- The senior phase projects...
Cons
-- The time commitment is intense, and as noted above, this won't be the right program for someone who isn't willing to put everything in their life on the back burner for three months (though, the second half of the program is less...

I chose Hack Reactor for a few reasons but a big one was the rigorous schedule that asks students to be working at least 6 days a week 9 hours a day. I knew that if I was going to leave my career I needed to come out of a boot camp with the best preparation I could get and I figured the more I can cram into 12 weeks the better. For me, the intensity was a plus and I was able to keep up with the material. The pace of the course is furious for the first 5 weeks as they introduce new material...
Pros
- Great staff and community - Help is available from 9 am EST - 11 pm EST - Learn in-demand tech skills - Curated coding challenges every day to prepare for job interviews - Work on capstones that mimic real job environment - Strong alumni...
Cons
- Program is what it is, it's fast-paced and if you start to fall behind you have to be proactive and put in extra work to catch up.
