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

PHENOMENAL Rice Boot Camp!

starstarstarstarstar
Pros
One of my favorite aspects of the course was working on real-world group projects in a collaborative environment (integrating Git/GitHub along with Slack). Each project was extremely challenging, especially with tight deadlines. Without a doubt, Rice opened many doors for me while researching my group projects. This included meetings with a professor, lawyer, city council member, movie director, and the county flood control district. The final project presentation on the last day of class proved to be incredibly rewarding for me. The boot camp gave me the confidence to use data science terminology and methods known by professionals which has greatly enhanced my marketability. I also developed a great comradery with my new network of fellow classmates.
Cons
Currently, I am a mentor for the Rice Data Analytics and Visualization Boot Camp. As part of the first group for this program, mentors were not directly available to our class. However, the dedication of the teaching staff largely made up for this missing component in the inaugural cohort.
Through reading an excellent review article on the front page of the “Houston Chronicle” business section, I first learned about the Rice University D ...arrow
