We are constantly impressed—and inspired—by our learners. From their long hours of hard work to their life-changing success stories, we could not be more proud of everything they have accomplished on their journey through our coding, data analytics, and cybersecurity programs.
We know that choosing a boot camp is a big decision that can change the course of your life, so who better to get advice from than participants who have been right where you are? Read a few testimonials and reviews below.
Like many people, I felt stuck in my job. I was understimulated, felt underutilized, and not challenged. I knew I wanted to switch my career before I got further typecasted. And I knew that I wanted to find a career that was in-demand and challenging. I enrolled in the Data Analytics Boot Camp at UofT SCS because the curriculum was appealing and the class schedule worked with my work schedule.
I should preface by saying that I had no idea how to code prior to entering this boot camp; I had no idea what a for loop was, or how computing logic worked. I am currently one month from graduating and it is crazy how much I have learned. So much so, that I can confidently apply for data positions because of how much this boot camp has taught me and exposed me to.
It not only taught me different syntaxes and how to use various libraries, but more importantly, it taught me how to learn (i.e. look up documentation and stack overflow). Between the super helpful TAs, the amazing classrooms, great instructor (shout out to Piro!), and approachable admin, this boot camp was definitely one of the best decisions I have made in terms of my career.
As you rapidly pickup tougher and tougher skills every week, your understanding of software becomes stronger, and you can carry out larger tasks both inside and outside of school. When I write code and project plans for the employers I have met so far, they are baffled at how I’ve picked up such a clear and broad understanding of project development in only three months. In addition to the academic support, the career support is so motivating and helpful in guiding this change in lifestyle from non-developer to Full Stack developer.
I want to thank everyone at Trilogy and UofT SCS for enabling me to enter the richest and most exciting job market and granting me difficult but rewarding challenges to refine my skills.
Yes! This program is tough, if you are not willing to put the effort into studying like any other university program you will not succeed, it is not called a boot camp for no reason. But, with saying that, if you are willing to put in the effort for this course the instructional staff and everyone involved with this program is completely hands-on and willing to help you succeed! Not only are the instructors knowledgeable (about way more then just what is taught in this course), the TA’s and the tutors genuinely want you to succeed! If you are looking to transition into this field they also have a career services team that helps you get into tip-top shape for the job market! I am currently only half way through this program and I have already received multiple job offers! I would recommend this program to anyone who is serious about making a change in their life, it is truly life changing!
Basically, you get what you put into it.
There is no specific bootcamp that will make you a master of any language in 6 months. By taking this course you will develop the skills to develop web applications using today’s technology. You will learn how to teach yourself which is a required skill of any developer. You will also learn how to work with other people of varying skill levels. It gets you ready to enter the industry.
I’m taking the remote course and it is fantastic. My instructor has been coding for 20 years. The career services aspect of the course is very good. Again, you get what you put into it. If you want a computer course with little practical experience I suggest taking that course, spending way more money and seeing how it goes in four years.
I recommend this course for anyone with a passion for developing web applications. If you have taken any time learning on your own and found it a little overwhelming, I highly recommend signing up for this course as it will make everything clear and less cloudy for you and you will find your progress accelerating at a rate that will provide you much satisfaction.
