Coding Bootcamp Students Tell All

Being the lead instructor at We Can Code IT continues to be a gift. This month our first cohort graduates, and I am proud to say that I would hire each and every one of them. I am constantly amazed at their stamina, can-do attitudes, and their generosity in letting me know they also appreciate me and my team for facilitating their computer science learning.

One day, a couple weeks ago, I came home to a special gift. My coding bootcamp students had emailed me a testimonial of their experience in the program. Wondering if we actually care? Wondering if you will feel out of place at our coding bootcamp? Curious about if you'll get what you need out of the program? Take a look at their testimonials and the images below to see for yourself.

[testimonial_slider][testimonial title=”Testimonial” id=”1431891005-1-25″ name=”Jasmine G.” quote=”Before coming into the first day of class, I was worried that I would be the only person that didn’t know ANYTHING about computer science and coding. I was relieved to know I wasn’t the only one, and even if I was it would be alright. With the lessons being taught at a slow and steady rate, I was able to ask all the questions I had and get answers. Mel is the only teacher that I’ve had who is constantly supporting each student and helping them achieve their full potential. Each student excels in a different area, and with the way the class is set up, each student can teach and learn from one another. Joining this class was the best decision of my life because I have learned something that will help me have a career, not a job.”] Click the edit button to add your testimonial.

She has a wealth of information that she enjoys sharing with the class while also allowing each individual to move at their own pace. It is a privilege to be able to learn from someone who wants to pass on her knowledge of coding and is truly invested in each student.”] Click the edit button to add your testimonial.

She has a lot of energy, a great attitude and is more than capable of juggling many things at once. She is patient and has very high emotional intelligence. Rumor has it, when she meets with employers, they want to recruit her to work for them. What does that say about her? A lot!”] Click the edit button to add your testimonial.

She is so personable and fun to have as a teacher, which really lessens the anxiety of learning something completely new. Her patience and drive is unfaltering, making it apparent that her number one goal is to make sure her students learn and have them be prepared to be the best that they can be by the end of the 12 weeks.”] Click the edit button to add your testimonial.

The slideshow below shows our coding bootcamp students at different stages of their learning. Throughout the accelerated training in computer science, they learned web development using HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Bootstrap, and jQuery. They learned object oriented programming in C# / .NET, Web Forms, MVC, SQL, and even how to connect and use APIs.
