After finishing a full-stack web development bootcamp, I felt lost and was definitely not ready for a job in the web development world. Since then, I knew that bootcamps were not meant for me, but then I was going through Facebook and saw this ad for being a beta test for this new course that Practicum had. In my mind, I was skeptical. I already knew how bootcamps worked and how all they care about most of the time is to make money without caring whether the students learn or not, but I decided to give it a try; after all, it couldn’t hurt, and I was a beta test. I’ve decided to enroll and learned more in 2 weeks than I did in 2 months in my other bootcamp.
You’re not just reading and asked to do something that you have no idea how to do, you get to practice all that you’ve learned. The other great thing is that while you are learning, you are also learning Agile methodology, which is used for most companies out there. The tasks can be difficult and challenging at time, but you have a fantastic community and a tutor that is always willing to answer your questions. Reviews can seem too picky at times, but in reality, code reviewers are trying to review your code as an actual company would.
Thanks to Practicum, I could definitely say I am way better developer than I was when I came out of my other bootcamp and thanks to them, I now feel confident enough to enter the field.
