I started my journey in web development 3 months ago. I’m about to finish the Basic Algorithm Scripting and I’m looking forward to keep working towards the Front-End certificate. I created one website on Wordpress for a friend and I am not sure how to build my career as a web developer from here (my main goal is to work for NGO’s and Non-Profit organizations).
I started to think of going to a Bootcamp because I feel like I am not progressing fast enough and I feel like I need the community and intense work of a Bootcamp to help my studies and experience.
Do you have any thoughts about Bootcamps in general and Hack Reactor’s Bootcamp specifically (which is the one that I was thinking about, because of the scholarship that they offer because I don’t have the budget to pay for it myself…)
Any thoughts/reviews/ideas/suggestions would be very much appreciated!
Paid boot camps, worth it or not?
Hi @veredrec, I have experience with Hack Reactor so I might be able to help.
Are you from the US? Also is the scholarship new?
I would love to hear about your experience! Yes, I live in the US, and I’m not sure about the scholarship but you can find some information about it here: http://www.hackreactor.com/scholarships
Do you recommend a Bootcamp in general? Do you think that there are better ways to study? I feel like it might be too intense but at the same time, I guess that’s what makes it different…
I’ll send you a DM with more info.
Hi @tropicalchancer ! I’m currently about to enroll in Bloc, mainly because of the flexibility. However, people are saying that to without some sort of collaboration to simulate a real world working environment on a team - Bloc’s value will be significantly lowered.
Absolutely. Shoot me Direct Message and we can chat about it there or Skype! I remember how overwhelming it was to apply so I don’t mind at all.
