  • zae

    I wouldn’t recommend this program. Most of the staff are pretty rude, especially Ijeoma. She is the worst staff member ever. She takes everything so personal and is a liar too

  • mlkrgr

    Some of the staff is actually pretty good, some of the staff definitely could use some help in terms of teaching ability especially once it gets out of the very core basics of programming. It’s a great class to get started in programming, but not something that you can get out and code a great looking website or app from scratch unless you are doing a lot of studying outside of the program.

  • If you werent happy with this bootcamp, maybe you should try personal mentorship with a professional ruby developer like me. I have no experience with these people directly, but I teach a lot of students from other bootcamps.

    If you want to learn something more than ‘beginning ruby’ (in other words skills that will get you a job) you can find me at

    I aso release a screencast a week at
