    Great experience

    John and Jean truly care about each and every student in the program. They make an effort to create an inclusive learning environment and offer accommodations for anyone that needs it. I had zero experience coding before this and they were able to teach me so much in 12 weeks!

    The best/scariest decision I ever made.

    I came into Academy needing to learn a new skill and start a new career path. I had absolutely no coding experience and on exiting feel confident in my abilities and excited to keep learning and growing. The instructors and TA's were the kindest, funniest, and most supportive people I could have asked for. While any boot camp experience is daunting given the speed at which they move, Jean and John have a way of guiding students that reeeeeeeeeaaaaally makes it all not only manageable, bu...

    One of the best decisions of my life

    Having gone in with zero coding experience I think this is such a great program, they teach in a way that I think anyone could learn this, I have already recommended the school to several of my friends and plan on staying involved as much as I can.

    Life Changing

    It was exactly the career step-up I was hoping for. Better even. After Academy I started a career in software development alongside folks with 4-year degrees and/or a few years experience. Any company interested in agile development should be interested in hiring Academy grads. Because the iterative learning process benefits the individual as well as the process. Each class studies the most relevant technology and irons out challenges of the class before it.

    Coding boot camp

    The camp consisted of .Net, Ruby on Rails, and HTML Js.  This camp is also fullstack, meaning learning sql was a must.

    Absolutely great

    John and the rest of the team are amazing. They demystify the coding work really fast, and got me more comfortable coding than I could really have imagined. Course load is rigorous, but they make the effort to make sure it will change your life without de-railing your life. 10/10

    Brain Kicked On!

    I received a better, quality education in 12 weeks at Academy Pittsburgh than I did in four years of going to college. I have the confidence and skill set to approach any problem with a positive mindset that I just have to keep chipping away and it will get solved.

    For anyone looking to radically transform their own life and finally feel like you belong in a learning environment, I highly recommend Academy Pittsburgh! If I could leave more than five-star ratings, I would.

    Great Experience

    I think the instructors do an amazing job of teaching a wide breadth of material effectively in a short amount of time. They make themselves readily available both during and outside of class hours if you need any additional help. One thing that I felt was really beneficial is that instead of focusing on learning just one language, Academy teaches you how to code in a way that allows you to quickly pick up any language thrown at you. The vast alumni network is very supportive. I was able...
