The Journey Though Coding Bootcamp | Reflections from Dr. Teresa Vasquez
Dec 5, 2017

Second, when the learning gets tough, students can pause and reflect on how far they’ve come. We asked Cohort 21 student, Dr. Teresa Vasquez if we could share her blog and she graciously agreed.

But five years ago, none of that existed...well we had a website with a few blogs that read more like social media updates than blog posts, but there were no reviews or graduates to talk to.
