“I attended Helio from Feb – May 2018. I was in the full-stack immersive class. The class provides all the information on all the current technologies that are being used in the Salt Lake Area. Our instructor went through all of the coding languages that we were learning quickly and provided several placed to learn more and improve skill. In class, we were given the basics and expected to put in time after hours to dig deeper and improve our skills. We spent the first 8 weeks learning the current stack being used and the last 5 weeks are spent creating projects for our portfolio. During the last five weeks, we are allowed to customize our learning by asking what we are looking for in order to complete our project. The career assistance was amazing and gave great advice on how to write a resume, dos and don’ts of interviews, and mock interviews. Great place to learn to code and had an amazing experience but you get out what you put in and takes work but well worth it.”
My experience with Helio Training has not only been a transformative one, but, one that has opened my eyes to the possibilities that exist in the world of technology and software development. Having taken the course, I am now proud to say I have successfully applied the material I have learned to advance my career and find meaningful employment in a fast-paced and innovative technology company. The instructors are of an incredibly high caliber and deliver instruction in creative, effective, and understandable ways. The instructors and mentors are always highly available and enthusiastic when assisting students on solving the issue at hand. Ultimately, my experience with Helio Training has been nothing short of incredible – I would, without hesitation, recommend Helio Training to anyone wanting to add pursue a new, challenging, and meaningful opportunity in life.
The instructors’ experience is invaluable. Many bootcamps focus on relevant, but older standards (Angular). The instructors at Helio have an incredible scope of cutting-edge industry standards (Redux, Polymer, node.js API’s, Docker Containers). They also teach the latest updates and the purpose behind the build for programs like Angular. There are pros and con to both styles, but entering the industry through Helio will make you incredibly valuable to a forward-thinking employer.
Of all the technical trainings I’ve attended over my 10+ years in Quality Assurance/Engineering, I would rank the Coded UI training near the top when considering clarity, breadth of content, and immediate applicability to my daily job.
Helio Training helped me to become a developer, I studied web-development by myself for a few months, but I always felt like there was something missing, and I did not see myself as a developer. I took the part-time after-hours class, and it was great! I now wonder how much more I could learn and evolve if I had enrolled in the Full-time Immersive class. The teachers are able to code live in front of the students and pause to answer questions that students may have, delivering a stronger understanding than can be gained by watching videos. Overall Helio is a great place to learn, improve your coding skills, and bring them to a level where you feel confident.
This bootcamp has given me more direction on what to learn rather than teaching me everything I know. I wouldn’t have attained the level of knowledge I have now without the push from Helio. Helio has been amazing and taught me a lot but it also gave me a guide of what to teach myself and how. If you’re looking to have everything taught to you look into a four-year CS degree. But if you want to learn everything quickly understand that you need to work harder than you ever have before then a bootcamp from Helio is best. Helio has been amazing to me and I would recommend it to anyone thinking about pursuing a web development career.
“I chose Helio because of it’s awesome reputation. I chose to go into UI/UX because I’m also pursuing a graphic design degree, and they go hand in hand. The online experience was great, I was able to fit it in my schedule perfectly. In times where I wasn’t sure what to do I was even able to come down to the campus and have an advisor or instructor help me. Helio has been a great experience.”
