We wish you all the best in your future endeavors and can’t wait to see what you do next! :]

Here are a few things the students said about their experience with the Bootcamp:

“Participating in RW Bootcamp is an amazing time when you’re learning a new approach to coding. Being a part of learning group is highly motivating for everyday code. No more postponing. Reading RW Discord is now my daily routine. Last 3 months flew in an blink of an eye. Even if I’m confused by some hard to understand topics, there’s always someone who can explain / direct me in an easy way what to do. Thank you all for being here with me!”
“As a beginner, I did not know what it would take to be ready as an Android developer. This bootcamp has really prepared me to start a career as an Android developer. I have gained so much skills and knowledge in such a short amount of time. You will enter this bootcamp as a beginner and leave as a developer.”
“Before starting this Bootcamp, I had zero ideas about iOS Development. I can’t believe that within just 13 weeks, I learned so many things. The curriculum is perfect for anyone looking for getting into the iOS ecosystem. The mentors are so much helpful and helped us in every way possible; they motivated us, taught us, and challenged us to learn more. Also, the fellow boot campers were so friendly and helpful. Overall, the environment was so encouraging that I can’t stop learning more and more. I wholeheartedly thank the RW team for this fantastic Bootcamp.”
“Having a background in computer science and teaching myself how to code after campus, I realized that I lacked essentials skills in software development during the bootcamp. I feel like I was hand-hold and taught how to code professionally by my bootcamp mentors. I’ve borrowed a lot from the bootcamp; “Don’t just write and patch code, understand code first before adding it into your application, structure your code well, write readable code to minimize on writing documentation, write test when necessary and finally share what you’ve learned with the community and much more.”
