Testimonials

Hear from our alumni about their experiences with Stack Education

This is a good opportunity to pick up coding skills to complement current professional background and experience. I learned a lot and my resume receives many more viewings now that the program is listed as recent achievements. The instructors are helpful, clear, and available. We as a class completed a cost of bug website development project that was overseen by a local software engineering company. They provided criticism and support. Key learnings include javascript coding techniques and MySQL database skills. Definitely worth the time and effort and I would recommend to people with varying backgrounds.

I am so thankful for all the help I got from Stack. I really sharpened my interviewing skills which definitely helped me a lot in the interview process. I would go so far as to say it was 75% of the reason I was hired-- I was able to communicate my story effectively. The hiring managers were also really impressed with the data science background. Stack really gave me a huge advantage in the process.

The instructors are very knowledgeable and able to cater to various skill levels and abilities. The curriculum is challenging, but students are given plenty of individualized attention on a regular basis making learning a breeze. Plenty of in-class practice time means that you are able to apply what you are learning in a practical manner. It is a short program, but does an excellent job preparing students to take on a variety of career paths within technology. Overall, I was very happy with my experience. It is a lot of hard work, but I always looked forward to every class.

The Stack Education Bootcamp at Framingham State University is a fantastic program! By putting in the time and practice needed to complete the assignments, the practical knowledge gained will enable you to create a portfolio showcasing your new technical skills. Instructors were always available before and after class for extra help and encouragement. The professional acceleration curriculum, guest speakers, and capstone project not only allowed a glimpse into what working at a startup was really like, but also offered many opportunities to build a professional network. The job assistance after completing the program helped facilitate the change I made in my career path and lead to the role I am currently in today. This program and experience opened up doors for me that I didn't even realize existed by giving me the confidence to venture into the high tech industry.

This is a great program if you're just starting out in the field of web development and you want to learn some hands-on experience with JavaScript and React. They help you get started using Git as a repository for saving projects and give you tips on how to get a job in the field. They also bring on guest speakers that you can network with who also work with web development across different industries. It was a fun experience to learn how to code and see what you can do with it but it was also great to find a group of like-minded people to work alongside with and gain new friends and mentors!

Definitely a good bootcamp to participate in if it's in your area. You will be given assignments weekly to learn the ins and outs of back end web development primarily, though there is some coverage for front end with HTML/CSS for making a static portfolio site. There is also a co op project done with an industry partner that you can definitely write about on your resume to show you have some experience in taking on real world problems. Instructors differ with each cohort but mine went above and beyond to get us to learn and continue learning even after the bootcamp by hosting coding meet ups at a local cafe frequently before COVID struck. If there's one thing you should do to make this experience worthwhile, it's to keep learning beyond the classes. Regardless of your bootcamp choice, you are only learning the beginnings of development. How far you go is on you after that.
