Sabio coding student Derek tells all about what it's like to go to coding bootcamp, why Sabio is the right choice and what his next steps are.

My name is Derek Kraus and I'm from Seattle area. My background is very diverse. I did almost 11 years in the military as a medic after college. I got a bachelor degree in political science that I couldn't really use. And I was just kind of tired of entry level positions. And what separated Sabio, what stood out to me was they're very confident that you could get a job coming out of here. If you did well, the best part about going to Sabio so far is just the absolute immersion. You're not spending too much time learning theory, you're coding and you're working on a real project, which I think is going to be very valuable going into the workforce. Because I hear a lot of students coming out of college, they struggle in the interview portion, when they're asked, Hey, what projects have you worked on? Or What project are you most proud of, and they don't have any projects on their resume to talk about because everything is just theory that they learned that they're in a cohort, I would like to get a job, preferably, quickly. I'm really looking for a job where I'm working with a big team of people where I can learn a lot from different people's experiences. And then something that's kind of middle of not quite a startup, but not a company that's so solid that there's nothing new to work on. I'm just eager to learn a lot more about what I'm doing, learn how things that I've already finished on how I can go back and do those more efficiently and better views. sabio is great. I wish it was more than three months.
