What Boot Camp Alumni Are Saying:

  • “Overall, I credit the program with my ability to pivot in life and start a new career. I didn’t know any code before the first day in class and now I’ve created a MERN stack application and have started a new job with an exciting company that feels invested in helping me grow. … The curriculum is a LOT to cover in six months, but I definitely couldn’t have covered all of those topics via self-study in that amount of time. Given the curriculum as a scaffolding, [the] excellent instruction, the connections I made with fellow students, and the time and work I put in outside of class, I had a very rewarding and positive experience.”

    Ashley E.
  • “I chose to attend the program because I always had an interest in coding, but had never been able to get the momentum to teach myself. The program was a great pace that pushed me just enough to keep learning, and taught me more code in six months than I ever thought possible. I now also have the confidence to teach myself the skills I will need as a developer. My instructor and TAs were incredible to work with, and helped me learn effectively. I definitely recommend the program!”

    Paul S.
  • “The instructor was wonderful, extremely knowledgeable, and every bit as generous with his time and attention to the students. The boot camp gave me a direction and a focus during those six months, and it helped me achieve my goal of adding real, tangible, marketable skills to my resume. It showed me that I was capable of applying myself, learning new things, and building a specific skill set that employers are looking for.”

    Frank Z., Jr.

  • “I chose to attend because I wanted to learn programming but also require a structured learning environment. The course exceeded expectations 110% and opened doors I never could have opened on my own. It has had a positive impact on my self confidence, earnings, and ability to learn new things. I am beyond grateful for the course, thank you.”
