I loved everything about this program. The teachers and mentors where amazing at breaking concepts down and gave me the confidence to start my career as a developer.

The course is definitely a challenge, but one I found exciting and even when I felt stuck there was always someone available to help out. The community around Lighthouse Labs has continued to be a motivating, empowering resource even five years out with their focus on continuing to support alumni education and development.

It was honestly one of the best decision I've ever made. I was in my late 20s and not happy at my job in the service industry.

I learn best under pressure and with a little guidance (and I have no self-discipline). If this sounds like you, then a bootcamp is definitely worth the investment. No coding experience required (although they give you a thorough pre-bootcamp test to complete before being accepted). The greatest asset that the bootcamp provided were the mentors who helped me in all of my projects. They answered all my questions, took the time to explain the concepts I didn't understand, and explained step-by-step along the way. This kind of mentoring is really hard to come by in real-life situations, so I'd take advantage of their knowledge while you still can.

The career support throughout Lighthouse Labs' network in Canada is also great and extensive. You can still reach out to their services after 5 years of taking the bootcamp so it helps if you plan to work in Canada.

A bootcamp is not for everyone, so please ask questions to alumni students to see if it fits your lifestyle. A bootcamp is a sacrifice and takes commitment to complete. "Learning to code" will not solve all your career problems if you don't work for it.

Also, I gave 4 stars in the curriculum because I wish I would have had more time with React JS. And I wouldn't have cared much for Ruby on Rails, but that's just a personal preference.

FAQ

  • Which should I take: the Intro course or the Bootcamp?

    Ask yourself: "Do I want to work as a professional developer?" If the answer is 'yes', then there is no question that the full-time development bootcamp is the program you need. The goal of our bootcamp is to transform you into a professional full-stack developer. You’ll come to understand coding logic, and learn how to think like a dev by building software from the ground up using industry-relevant technologies. Our program will provide you with mentorship, data-driven curriculum and a top-notch learning environment that will launch you into your first junior developer role. If the answer is 'not sure', taking our part-time course might be the best option.

  • Who should take part-time courses?

    Our Intro to Web Development, Front End Fundamentals with JavaScript & iOS Development courses are excellent for people interested in learning how to code; people interested in learning how to communicate with a development team; people looking to gain career skills to help in a hybrid role; and people interested in learning if they enjoy development before taking our Bootcamp.

  • What are my payment options?

    Once you are accepted into a cohort, your place in the program will only be reserved once we have received your non-refundable deposit. Deposits can be paid by credit card, and we are able to accept cheques, wire transfers, bank drafts, or cash for the remainder of your tuition. Your tuition is due 2 weeks before your start date.

  • Can I come to Lighthouse Labs as an International student?

    Yes, you can come to Lighthouse Labs as an international student! There is no additional tuition cost or restrictions for people applying from outside of Canada. We have had many students come to Canada for our Bootcamp on a visitors visa, however you are entirely responsible for making any legal arrangements for staying in the country. Lighthouse Labs is not able to assist in securing working permits, and your eligibility to work in Canada will entirely depend on you securing the proper documents. If you are able to obtain a working permit, you'll be able to take full advantage of our Career Services opportunities!

  • How does Career Services at Lighthouse Labs work?

    At Lighthouse Labs our guiding belief is that over 80% of training will be learned on the job, and the first year of working as a software developer can be seen as paid high-intensity training. Our dedicated Career Services team is here to guide our students into their new roles. They work with all students to identify their career goals, and help them jump from classroom into the real world ASAP to continue honing their skills.
