Disclaimer: when reading bootcamp reviews, remember that its graduates are motivated to leave higher reviews because it gives credence to their graduating institution. Path: Full-time, 10-weeks (May '22) Disclaimer out of the way, this bootcamp is really quite good. The instructor I had was knowledgeable and patient. The program is generally well organized, meaning you're unlikely to fall out due to technical problems or confusion over what's due when. Despite getting through a monstrous...
Pros
- Knowledgeable & capable instructors (obvious disclaimer: I only experienced one) - Course reflects current trends in tech needs and (like the industry) is being continuously updated - Practical and one-on-one help with resume,...
Cons
- The career coach is ferocious and obviously motivated, but there's absolutely no interfacing with interested companies. All applications are on you, which is hard to do while in the program due to how busy it keeps you. They hold out on...

You'll learn a ton if you put in the work.

I had a great time during my experience at Coding Temple, if you get Brian as your teacher consider yourself lucky. He's a great teacher, very patient and can teach difficult concepts to a brick wall. It is a lot of work, so make sure you have the time. You'll have homework (nearly) every night on top of a full day of class, and your weekend will be filled with a project covering all the topics of that week. I had a little programming experience going in, self taught mostly but nothing too...
Pros
My instructor was great, classmates were fun, and I really enjoyed the online course.
Cons
Nothing comes to mind.

I took Coding Temples bootcamp, and a couple of other one's over the past couple of years. In my opinion Coding Temples had: Poor instruction - my instructor was clearly not a subject matter expert and he spent sometimes 45 minutes debugging his own errors. This was a huge waste of class time. Poorly prepared - in my opinion (and that of many other classmates), he clearly barely if at all prepared for class. This led to a lot of wasted time (organizing himself during class) and we lost...
Pros
I did like most of my classmates.
Cons
Poor instruction Complete lack of instructor preparation

I worked in Mortgage Lending before studying to work in tech. I chose the self paced because it would allow me to keep my job while I was studying. The self paced course includes videos to guide you through the material and instructors on standby for private one on one sessions to go over any questions on homework or other concepts. By the end of the program I felt like I had what was expected for an entry level position as well as the drive to continue to learn further. The instructors make it...
Pros
Great instructors Engaging content Realistic scenarios presented Career assistance
Cons
None - The course is all online which means you can do it on your own time and it has the benefits of an in person course because instructors are ready and willing to help.

I didn't want a program that was set up as a bunch of videos to watch with no real support. I could get that from YouTube. So when I was researching the different bootcamp options out there, I liked that Coding Temple offered an instructor. Most did for full-time/in-person courses but CT also offers instructor support in their Self-Paced program. The instructor was extremely helpful when I ran into issues or needed a bit more explanation on various things we were learning. The assignments were...
Pros
Self-Paced instructor support. Slack channel with other self-paced students for collaboration and networking. Easy to understand instructional material & videos. Alumni Support for post-gradutation.

I came into Coding Temple (their first cohort) as a high school graduate at 18 years old. I had never programmed before. Coding Temple took me under their wing and showed me the effort/discipline it took to become a software developer. They ensured I had the tools and resources to succeed and provided support to me after I graduated. Thanks to the Pros at Coding Temple I have developed websites in the start-up sector, software in finance the industry, and for small businesses.
Pros
-Very Flexible: Open to working with me on core concepts around the clock to ensure I was understanding the material -Knowledgeable: Understood the material they were teaching and had industry experience with the technologies they...
Cons
-At first I did not understand the difficulty of programming and the effort it would take -At times I did not know how to ask for help (go ask for help they want you to do well!)

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.
