In just three months Trilogy’s Full Stack Coding Boot Camp and its accompanying career development service helped me land my dream job in the software development industry after years of only receiving frustrating rejection letters. The program is very intense and relentlessly pushes each student, regardless of experience, through exposure to a [broad] range of information, expert instruction, and personal assistance. To be able to raise your hand in the classroom with a question or seek out personal code review while learning software is truly a special experience. Without a doubt, tremendous value has been created through this program. Best decision of my life? Best education money can buy? Maybe, and definitely an all-time game-changer for my money.

After staying home to raise kids for 20 years, the boot camp provided a fast track to bring my programming skills up to date.

I’m very grateful for the experiences that I have had in this program. I have grown in confidence in who I am, have found great purpose and passion in the work that I will be doing, and have met people that I believe will be friends for a long time. The program is very blessed to have Norma and Netreia steering the ship. I know I made the right decision in the program that I chose, and I could not be happier with where I stand in my knowledge and skills.

I was laid off from my design job on June 1, 2017. I was looking around for what to do next, thinking of either web design or graphic design. I found the SMU Boot Camp online and liked that I could learn coding skills so I could use my design talents for the web. The impact has been great. Everything is on the web. And now I have the skills that employers need. I found a job less than four weeks after graduation.
