My name is Jaime Montero, and just like you reading this post, I was trying to find out some information, feedback or reviews about this University of Miami Coding Boot Camp. I didn’t find much, but in the end, I decided to give it a try.

BEST DECISION EVER!

My personal experience through this Coding Boot Camp was excellent, and that’s what I’m sharing here.

I graduated in October 2018 from the full stack web development program, started in May 2018 (6 Months).

Halfway through the program, I decided to offer my services as a web developer; built two websites for free and then I got a paid client. At this point, three months are enough for you to start building beautiful websites, building up a portfolio, and hopefully getting your first clients.

Before graduation, I got an offer from the company I currently work at.

The program covers a lot…I understand, “a lot” is a very broad and abstract term, but, I mean it, A LOT; from the very basic HTML to functional React web applications, from your command prompt to data manipulation and databases, from your first lines of code “Hello World” to dynamic, interactive, responsive and potentially profitable $$$ real-world projects.

Career services are great, they will absolutely help you to become employer-ready-competitive, to be more noticeable, and most importantly, they will guide you through the job search process.

Instructors are experienced, very knowledgeable and fun, they’re in the industry, usually in different fields. which is great, and you get to learn a lot from them.

Thanks to this University of Miami Coding Boot Camp my life has changed for good, it’s incredible how six months of hard work can transform everything, I got hired by a great company, in a role that I really enjoy and most importantly, where I’m able to apply everything I have learned.

This experience is just the beginning of a career full of awesomeness, professional growth and tons of lines of code. SUPER RECOMMEND!

You really have to take it seriously, put the hard hours, study, practice, practice, practice, practice a lot, research, network, go the extra mile!

The UM Coding Boot Camp was definitely an experience in which many lessons were learned. First of all, the curriculum was extremely challenging for all the students—even for ones with prior experience. Even though the fast pace of the course was the predominant obstacle most students faced, it did allow students to learn all the information covered.

The majority of the data taught had remnants of JavaScript; therefore, anyone wanting to undertake this course would be best served to know a bit (then eventually a lot) about this language.

With that said, even though we were all faced with a roller coaster of emotions due to the demands of this course, our guardian and Student Success Manager was absolutely amazing with her never-ending support, leadership, and understanding. Without her, most of us would probably not finish this course, myself included.

Our instructor was absolutely fantastic, very knowledgeable and always willing to help. Last but not least, our TA was always there for us, providing a helping hand and so gracious.
