This program is available in part-time and full-time schedules and offers a variety of coding languages and computer skills. The programs offered through UCLA Extension include a full stack web development program and cybersecurity program. UCLA Extension is one of many Trilogy university coding bootcamp partnerships throughout the United States. Students enrolled in the program will graduate with a web development or cybersecurity certificate from the University of California Los Angeles, and the program offers career services and portfolio building opportunities.

My bootcamp(located in Woodland Hills) just ended today with a big project that was seen by a DEV manager from a start-up company and also from a tech recruiter. All in all I’ve learned a lot in 3 months: front end and back end web development that allowed me to create web apps from scratch. Clark the instructor is very good at teaching: he will explain concepts clearly and gave us many exercises to practice what was being taught at the time. He kept the class moving at a very fast pace since we had a limited time to learn so much material in 3 months: we had three projects to do in the bootcamp, as well as two homework assignments due weekly. The pace was very intense; I would normally stay up nightly til 2am to get my assignments done. We also had two TAs in class, Paige and Josh, who helped us with any questions that we had.
I am very glad that I took this bootcamp. Even though I felt overwhelmed at times, I also felt that I got a lot of help, support, and encouragement along the way. The post-career support is great too. They will give you feedback on your resume, LinkedIn profile, and Github profile, as well as coach you on in-person interviewing. One person from my class already had an in-person interview for a full stack developer position, and the next day he got offered the position.

The pros of attending the Coding Bootcamp at UCLA Extension were that it was a good value for the price. Will I make that tuition back in income. Yes. It was a 6-month part-time program that worked along with my Full-time job. There is access to education from across the nation, from other faculty members and students attending bootcamps by Trilogy. The program allowed me time to do homework, build applications, and to solve problems. The teachers along with the career development personnel and the program managers were qualified. I also enjoy the alumni support and the community of graduates.
I also have benefitted from the amount of materials that I still have to review such as videos, a slack forum full of links, powerpoint presentations, classroom lectures, and coding homework and exercises.
I was able to finance the cost of my tuition through Sallie Mae and through UCLA Extension, which was something that I preferred to a private lender with higher interest rates.
I don’t really have any cons. I think that any problems that I had getting hired were personal problems. All of the advice I received was great. They never overpromised anything. I thought they actually underpromised and over-delivered.
