Emily’s Words

I have taken a couple courses. I’ve only, I think, completed one Udacity course. And I’ve just, kind of, started a couple of Coursair courses. And, it’s like night and day, for sure. Honestly, the number one thing, I think is the teachers. I think that the most difficult thing about online courses is that, not only are the teachers not available, to communicate with, ask questions about, but I think also, teachers on Coursair, it’s really hard to be engaging when you’re through a screen. And, I think the instructors here do a fantastic job of being extremely engaging. I’ve never been an expert in any programming language. I know basic Java, basic JavaScript, basic R. So, I think that you don’t need to be an expert in any programming language. I definitely think you need to have, you know, made something with a program language before. Just so you know the basic components of it. I think this boot camp is actually really well designed for a lot of different people in different situations. Someone in my situation, I’m looking to escalate and incrementally improve the stuff that I already do at my job, I think it’s been really, really effective at doing that, I think it’s definitely, it could be, it definitely could be effective for someone in a position, looking for that career change, looking for, looking to explore. It does a good job of being appealing and applicable to a wide range of backgrounds.
