Glad I found this website because anyone considering UofT's coding bootcamp should keep looking! This is Trilogy education basically renting space at UofT. NO CERTIFICATE WAS GIVEN even though it was advertised. Classrooms were sub-par. Instructors weren't even from UofT but from Trilogy education. I have no idea why UofT continues to endorse this program. Don't waste your time and money here.
