What Boot Camp Alumni Are Saying:

  • “I chose to attend the boot camp because I was entering into a technical role and was hoping to get some base level knowledge to provide context and provide a foundation for my technical career. The boot camp gave me exactly what I intended. I was able to leverage the education to obtain a raise and promotion and I have a better understanding of our application and how it works. I feel with the skills and knowledge I obtained in the boot camp, doors have opened for me to move toward many different positions in the technical landscape.”

    Hallie W.
  • I chose to attend the program because I wanted to be a developer and didn’t have the two and half years it would take to finish my bachelor’s to not be working. Plus, I appreciated how much hands-on experience the program offered vs. traditional CS programs. It has impacted my life incredibly. My husband is going to be able to quit his job and take a turn being a stay-at-home dad while I get to work in a wonderful position from home with a great team at a fantastic company making $48,000 more per year than I ever have.”

    Rachel A.
  • “The program was great! I learned a lot, but more importantly I learned how to learn development. You don’t need to learn every programming language, you just need to learn how to learn them, and the basics of development. My instructor Lori was fantastic!”
