Bloc is an online coding bootcamp and education platform that offers online bootcamps designed to help students secure a lifelong career in tech. Bloc was acquired by Thinkful in 2012 and has since helped many students build a lucrative tech career.

Bloc programs offered include a web developer track and web designer track in software engineering and UX/UI design respectively. Bloc online offers these development and design bootcamps to make learning real-world skills easier and more convenient. The types of programs Bloc offers will help students become job-ready designers and developers in just a few weeks, but be prepared for the Bloc bootcamp cost.

Bloc online web development costs $16,000 for full-time students and $9,500 for part-time students. On the other hand, students in the UX/UI designer Bloc program pay $12,150 for full-time studies and $9,500 for the part-time option. Full-time bootcamps require around 50 hours per week while part-time courses span between 20 to 30 hours per week and are self-paced learning-based.

Bloc payment options include month-to-month payments, an upfront payment, and a Bloc deferred tuition and living expenses plan. This coding bootcamp also offers a scholarship fund to provide financial aid to specific students. Bloc scholarships include the women's scholarship and veterans’ scholarship. Both these programs award $600 to qualified students.

Students who've completed Bloc programs have access to career services designed to propel students into a promising job in tech. However, there are no Bloc job placement opportunities since its parent organization, Thinkful, also has no recorded job placements.

If you’re considering enrolling in a Bloc bootcamp but are worried your current knowledge on the subject is lacking, Bloc offers bootcamp prep courses. Interested students can use the free practice questions and quizzes offered on Thinkful's website. Bloc bootcamp prep programs introduce students to coding and are ideal for students on a budget, as they are free.

Bloc online bootcamps are excellent if you want to break into tech. In this Bloc review, you will find everything you need to know about the Bloc admissions and application process, the varying payment options available, and what alumni are saying about the programs in Bloc software engineering and UX/UI design reviews.

I enjoy coding as a whole. It's extremely challenging and can be frustrating to learn. Probably the most difficult endeavor in my life. Keep in mind, my learning style is more of show me how you do it and then walk me through what, why, where, how, etc. and then I can eventually do the same with practice. With that said the material itself is fine for the most part. It can be confusing at times learning on your own through a computer screen and sometimes doesn't always fit my learning style....
Pros
- Great mentor - Curriculum is good for the most part and can be better understood through practice - Optional lectures/demonstrations are helpful and insightful into various aspects of coding such as creating a game, phone app, etc.
Cons
- Online Chat Assistants are not helpful at all - You will unlikely complete this course in 6-8 months which is how you get your refund guarantee - Bloc doesn't teach you everything, you will need to do self-learning via Youtube and Google...

I've been in this program for far longer than I should have been. Some of that is on me, however, nobody has reached out to assist me in completing the program which makes me think they're milking me for money. There is absolutely no consistency within mentors, assessors, graders, etc. Mentors don't always know what the curriculum is or calls for. Mentors don't help with students struggling with code because "it's not their job to code for you". They are nitpicky on every. single. assignment...
Pros
Some of the information and resources they provide are helpful and I've acquired skills I didn't have before
Cons
Expensive Inconsistency Unprofessional

More than just curriculum.

My experience with Bloc's Web Developer Track was outstanding. The curriculum focused on learning HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React, Node, Express, and more. On top of that, the support is what I believe really makes this program shine. From day one I was assigned a mentor that I had weekly meetings with. If needed I could reach out to my mentor between our weekly meetings as well. Mentor meetings were one on one and the discussion was always led by me and what I wanted to discuss. In addition to...
Pros
Mentor meetings. Mock interviews. Workshop sessions. Resume and portfolio help. Assistance finding employment.
Cons

Bloc was overall a great experience. I received a job offer upon graduating, but it took a lot of work especially during the pandemic. I think the most valuable aspect of Bloc were my weekly mentor sessions. My mentor helped me understand industry standards, articulate my design decisions to stakeholders, and job search more strategically. Without my mentor, I don't think Bloc would have been worth it. I also think Bloc is great for anyone who wants to switch into UX design, but can't afford to...
Pros
Mentorship Career help Design foundations A great portfolio
Cons
- No projects to work with engineers/developers - Group projects are optional, should be required since most jobs are looking for that - Some of the videos feel outdated/don't get to the point - Slow learning process, not enough hands on...

The curriculum is fairly good but there are some structural issues at Bloc. They are regularly updating the curriculum - which is great in theory. But there seems to be no communication of these changes to the mentors or assessors. More than once I went into a project assessment where the assessor was unaware of source material.
Pros
1. Curriculum is well written and typically has a logical flow. 2. If you get a good mentor, they can be really helpful. Especially during the job search. 3. Lots of flexibility in being able to complete the program at your own pace...
Cons
1. Passing portfolio reviews is completely dependent on the subjective bias of the assessor. If you make all the changes requested by assessor A and then resubmit and are graded by assessor B, you're likely to get a whole new set of change...

I wrote my first line of code in October 2018, and by early 2019, I realized that I personally would need a bootcamp in order to get me to the place I wanted to get to. I had expored a bunch of online courses, books, etc, but there was just too much out there to know what was valuable and what wasn't. I couldn't afford to quit my job and do a full-time in-person bootcamp, and the local part-time bootcamp didn't impress me for the cost, so online was my only option. After spending lots of...

-Weekly Mentor meetings -Workshops & Office Hours -Accountability → Graded Assignments, Capstones, Interviews -Clear curriculum to follow -Parallel Career curriculum -Constantly improving -Responsive graders -Active and supportive...
Cons

I attended bloc for UX/UI design. The curriculum is decent. They added more materials regarding UX research like empathy and customer journey maps at the end of the course. I didn't like that assignments were graded as pass or fail and didn't utilize a A -F or percentage grading system. I would like that to gauge the quality of my work. They have mentors u see every week. Make sure you have plenty of questions to ask them. Alot of times I didn't have questions and left the session early.
Pros
You complete 2 projects for your portfolio but optional projects can be done to pad portfolio.
Cons
I feel like there should be more emphasis on UX research and how to interpret data gained for

If you are up for a challenge that can be life-changing - go for it. I like the flexibility and the curriculum. BUT nobody is there to babysit you, the work is on you, and it is all hands-on. Be ready to dive in right away and allocate a lot of time to study. Bloc gave me a solid knowledge of tools, industry principles, and soft skills.
Pros
Mentors are the best Supportive community Like-minded driven people Awesome curriculum
Cons
Everyone learns at their own pace, for someone who is working full time, 8 months is not enough to do quality work.

Well paced, and adaptive to your learning speed. Overall good/great instructors that I had. The curriculum is quite cookie cutter, and at the time of my enrolment, drew a large amount of its material from (free) outside sources (ie: CodeWars, CodeAcademy, Code School). The glaring weakness (in my opinion) is the emphasis on trivial/inapt career support and preparation. As well as the forced requirement of these non-academic objectives in the roadmap. Success team also unwilling to issue...

Bloc is an excellent bootcamp if you can afford it. if you can afford it you will learn a lot that will definitely land you a job in the end. The only reason I gave 1 star for job guarantee is because I did not finish the course due to a financial complication. If you are like me and need to look for something on the affordable side, there are many other UX bootcamps you can look into that have other payment plan or finance plan options. My mentor was also very knowledgeable and helpful.

Bloc Thinkful was very helpful to jumpstart my career in web development. They focus mainly on vanilla CSS and in-depth JavaScript skills to create a solid foundation. A lot of jobs are looking for Bootstrap framework experience however, I firmly believe Bloc Thinkful does it well by having you learn the basics as to why each little CSS style does what it does. Using those frameworks with this background becomes more intuitive with practice.
Pros
Great skills to learn, user-friendly explanations for someone who hasn't coded before.
Cons
The full-stack projects can be very time-consuming. I was way ahead of schedule to graduate about 3 months in, however the projects took much longer than I had expected, graduating barely a month before the Bootcamp deadline.

What Projects Do Bloc Students Work On?

When Bloc was its own entity, Bloc projects consisted of a full stack capstone project. Bloc projects involved learning HTML, JQuery, ReactJS, and NodeJS beforehand, then using these software to build full stack capstone projects from scratch.

Since Bloc is now owned by Thinkful, the nature of the projects has slightly improved, as students work on advanced capstone projects tailored to their interests. After connecting one-on-one with a mentor, you will work together to customize each phase of your course to learn JavaScript or other programming languages of relevance or interest that will be utilized during your capstone project.

How do you successfully pass the technical interviews for Flatiron and Hack Reactor (Software Engineering and Cyber Analytics) ?

Good question. They are very different so I would recommend doing prep courses for both to try it out. However, then decide which specialty you're most interested in and go for those technical interviews. In preparation, definitely complete the prep course. The next steps for you should be to ask the admissions officer about the type of questions that are going to be on the technical interviews. What resources do they recommend you review to get accepted? What they think will...
