"I'll be straight-forward: attending IOC's Web Development Bootcamp last December was one of the best investments I've ever made in my career. It's only been 2 and a half months since I attended IOC's bootcamp, and I've already launched my freelancing business and am working with 3 clients. And this is just the start." - Angels, Spain

"The knowledge Tina and her team bring to the table are second to none. With their support and the amazing community you build during and after the bootcamp, I started with very little knowledge of HTML and CSS and by the end of the program completely learned how to build modern websites." - Lynn, UK

"This program is unlike any other out there. It's in-depth and practical, and you walk away confidently knowing how to build websites but also how to strart a creative agency offering web development. The value the team provides is honestly incredible" - James, Australia
