Life-changing education and door opener.

starstarstarstarstar
Pros
- A wealth of information and knowledge, in the course room and on the job hunt - Outcomes program, they won't guarantee you a job, but they do everything short of that and that is huge. Take their criticism with grace and humility, and learn how to not fit the mold of employers, but make yourself more marketable. They know what they're doing. Trust them! - Great facilities, great extracurricular events - Excellent alumni network and others who want to help you succeed
Cons
- This is not for everyone. The people I saw succeed were thirsty, curious, and humble enough to ask for help and not get stuck on problems longer than necessary. Do not carry any preconceived notions in, learn, learn, and learn more and better yourself.
Amazing learning experience, great help online and in-person whenever you needed it. Be prepared to be challenged, and be prepared to work hard. Worki ...arrow

Brandon Kervin - Alumni

starstarstarstarstar
Pros
Instructors have been in the industry for years. They know the trends of the industry and will teach you what’s hot in the market. Regardless of whether or not it will apply to your upcoming job, the learning skills you pick up will make new languages/tech stacks a breeze.
Cons
Maybe a little too high level. We learned a lot about the industry and what’s used, but only cut into the basics of Java/Javascript. Not to say it was detrimental to me at my first job as someone who had previous experience, but diving deeper into lower level concepts might help to improve technical interviews and results for the guild.
Amazing instructors. Corbin and Kyle taught me the ins and outs of what I needed to know as a developer and made my transition into my first job a bre ...arrow

NuCamp Web Development Fundamentals Review

starstarstarstarstar
Pros
1. Affordable 2. Built for working professionals, who cannot take time off, for a full immersion course. 3. Friendly 4. Up to date, streamlined material.
Cons
1. I am unsure of the job support that NuCamp provides, but you cannot get a job with the Web Development Fundamentals course, anyways. I will find out more, at the end of the Full Stack course. I think there primary focus is networking, rather than job placement counselors. But the affordability and targeting to working professionals, override any potential cons.
So I have an Associates as a Software Developer and a separate 45 credit certificate as a Computer Support Specialist. I have been working in Hardware ...arrow

Overall Good Experience but "Essentials" need to be redefined!

starstarstarstarstar
Pros
- Very comfortable stay (I would say over comfortable. I got a room with 2 queen beds for single occupancy. I would not mind to pay less and settle for a smaller size room and more functional stay during 7 days). - Instructor was a great guy to hang out with. - People are mostly friendly and helpful and the batch is small so Instructor does get a chance to work with everyone. - After course, camp fires, wine nights, dine outs, labs with camp fire and margaritas (shhh) and beach walks between the course were fun. - You could meet a lot of interesting people working in valley. We had people from Netflix, Intuit, Black Pixel, 3M and couple of them from Apple (though they were in stealth mode). Great bunch to network and hang around with.
Cons
- Pace - I found the program to be a little fast even with iOS programming experience I had. I highly recommend to go through the entire book upfront which is the main text that will be followed (BNR's iOS and Swift Guide) so you have enough time during the bootcamp to go into further details. You will learn the more if you do all the labs before coming to bootcamp and ask questions about exercises you were not able to do yourself or concepts you had problem understanding. If you have the programming experience, don't code along. Work for a week before the bootcamp starts. - Screen - BNR should provide a bigger and better screen. There was constant adjustment/focus/scrolling going on and I though it affected the flow of the instructor and was quite frankly very irritating if you think how much you are paying for the course. - Meals provided by the facility will get to you in 3-4 days. So plan to explore the surrounding areas and thats why plan to take your car along. Beautiful place to explore. - Connectivity is very bad. Could be an advantage as it keeps you focussed on the course and gives you enough rest but the rooms and facilities are ok for the price. - Biggest point I thought that they can work on is include more practical areas that are used in today's apps. I was surprised to see things like Push Notifications and use of Networking Libraries skipped. I would say these things are essentials rather than advanced topics.
When I did the bootcamp, I had about 7 years of Software Development experience out of which 3 years were developing iOS Apps with Objective-C. I took ...arrow
