The Bootcamp Prep program was exactly what I needed in order to pass the Fullstack entrance exam. It was not only informative but enjoyable.

Michael Romani

Getting to do pair programming with other beginners gave me tons of confidence even though I was definitely one of the most beginner beginners in the class. AND, not to mention, I was able to get into Fullstack about three weeks after the course was over, something I was not sure I was ready for at all prior to taking the course!

The deeper sense of understanding JavaScript that I received from the Bootcamp Prep course allowed me to approach my application and interview process with confidence.
