At last, we make it to the last week of the 3-month bootcamp. And with it, we finally get to learn what we’ve all been the most concerned about: how to land a job. After all, this is the main product that all the bootcamps are selling. …


This post is long overdue. It’s been half a year since I’ve completed the bootcamp and I’m happy to report the reason I haven’t been blogging as much as because I’m now employed at an amazing job working as a software engineer for Yahoo. I’ll wrap up the bootcamp experience…


We’re 10 weeks in now and our bodies are definitely feeling the struggle of the long days and non-stop work. Many in my cohort report that their friends and loved ones say that they look really tired on the weekends. Some others have experienced debilitating anxiety and suffered mental breakdowns…


Our thesis project, nimblecode, has begun development and I was proud of my team picking React when none of them really had any experience with it. We understood the risks, as most other teams played it safe and went with Angular. I was excited to build a full fledged application…

Five weeks into the program, we’re completely done with the “sprinting” section of the course. It’s pretty amazing that in only five weeks, I’ve become comfortable with a ton of concepts and libraries that I had only heard of before and never really understood what they meant. It was definitely…


I’ve finally made it through the sprint portion of the course. Over the last five weeks, we’ve been bombarded with new concepts, technologies, and frameworks faster than we’ve ever learned before. I’m sort of amazed of all I’ve learned so far in the program and how fast it all came…
