What Boot Camp Alumni Are Saying:
  • “Once the pandemic happened, it was a clear sign that now was the time to refocus my career aspirations. ... After doing some tutorials online, I decided to sign up for UCLA's coding boot camp, and I'm very glad I did. I got to meet some great people, exercise my brain in learning new ways of thinking about things, and ultimately jump start a brand new career for myself.” - DJ H.
  • “My experience in the program was wonderful! ... Much of what I'm able to do and understand, within the world of programming and engineering, is due to having completed the boot camp (considering the similarities between programming languages). I attended the program as a means to kick-start a career change and gain a leg up in my path toward a BS in Computer Science. So far, so good.” - Steven J.
  • “I chose this boot camp because I wanted to update my knowledge about web development and create a strong portfolio, and get a job at the end of the program — and everything worked well.” - Ahmed O.
  • “My experience in this program was so enriching. ...I originally intended to use this program as a supplement to my Computer Science degree. After learning the fundamentals, … my computer science class has been so much easier for me. [S]hortly after boot camp, I was hired as a student developer … and have built so many web applications that are used by many students and faculties in the university. I'm very grateful for the experience in the program.” - Jemma T.
  • “I chose to attend to gather important skills needed in today's society. I also wanted to be able to create my own schedule and freelance in making and maintaining websites for friends or clients. It's the best decision I've ever made in my life.” - Hannah F.
