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

Amazing Bootcamp Experience! Very Satisfied!

starstarstarstarstar
Pros
Learning the algorithms, the way it works, and how to implement it really added a huge value, because I was able to walk into meetings with non-IT folks and explain data science fluently. DSD helped my data science become my language. DSD is very affordable and not as time consuming as the other, much longer bootcamps.
Cons
No career assistance, but I've also heard from other friends that career coaches aren't that useful because at the end of the day it really boils down to the individual. I also feel that the program was a little too short, one week was virtual and the other week was in person, I wish both weeks were in person.
I attended DSD in Summer 2017 right after my high school graduation, I had a pretty good fundamental understanding of data science and the R language. ...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

Worth the time and effort.

starstarstarstarstar
Pros
- Great selection process - Great instructors, friendly and very knowledgable - Most of the hiring partners were top-notch, from promising startups to well-established tech companies.
Cons
- One or two hiring partners that were too early in the startup life cycle and seemed that really didn't know what they were doing. - It happed to me, getting to the last stage of the hiring process with a major company to be told that they were cancelling the position. I know that was true because they reached out to me about 3 months later offering it to me, but I was already working in another place. I know most of this is not under their control, but it is worth mentioning as it is part of the experience.
I did a lot of research before deciding to apply, at that time there wasn't much information about them besides their webpage and their alumni reviews ...arrow
