I enjoyed the content.

While a majority of the content was reiterated from the General Bootcamp, I did enjoy a second review of that information. I thought the introduction to WordPress, and the development stack that we use, was very good; I really appreciate the external sources given for Word Press. My primary criticism is that the quizzes are a little brief and unfinished, and the completion of the course isn\'t entirely identified as opposed to the General Bootcamp. With that said, I realize that this is all actively being developed so it\'s not to say that those issues are unwarranted. Regardless, this was a great course and introduction to the Web team.

Almost a carbon copy of the general boot camp except for the WordPress tutorials which are pretty helpful.

Overall the course is very informative but a bit redundant. The Youtube videos are a great for this field.

Great job overall on the website. Some of the information like emails needs to be updated on certain pages. Also, when sending welcome letters, they should include a direct link to the appropriate boot camp for example web dev, or social media, etc.

The Bootcamp for Web provides you with a foundation to be successful at utilizing the already existing tools, policies and structure created by interns and program leadership, helping to enhance the internship experience.

It is great to have an idea of what the expectations are as a new intern. This course was definitely helpful to get up to speed with the web team. Other than the unexpected glitches and bugs from now and then, the overall idea and content is excellent.

The Web Development Boot Camp is fantastic! The Wordpress resources are very valuable. Even though I\'ve worked in Wordpress before, these videos helped me become much more confident!
