    My App Academy experience...

    Everything about this course was great - It was fun working alongside other students, the teacher assistance was great, but not incredibly hand holding.

    Don't go into this course thinking it will be easy - it won't be. You will work 40+ hours every week continuously learning new material, so at times you may feel a little overwhelmed. Don't worry if you feel this way - it all comes together in the end.

    Javascript is an incredible first base language to learn and luckily it'...

    Software Engineer

    If you're considering joining a bootcamp, choose App Academy! While the curriculum is rigorous and intense it is worthwhile. I graduated from the 24 week online program and my skillset now includes Javascript, Python, HTML5, CSS3, React.js / Redux, Flask, Express.js, Node.js. PostgreSQL, SQLAlchemy, Sequelize, Git, and other tools. There were times throughout this program when I thought becoming a software engineer and learning all I know now would be nearly impossible... but here we are...

    Software Engineering 24 weeks

    App Academy was a great experience! I learned a lot throughout this experience and could not have done myself. I learned from my instructors as well as my peers. The bootcamp is hands on focused. After learning a new technology you have to apply it immediately and it crystalizes the information better. Overall, it takes a lot of hard work and determination to go through it but you learn a lot!

    App Academy was amazing!

    App Academy was a great experience to behold. Coming from a background in accounting, I had little experience in coding but I was capable of learn multiple languages and how to code in just a short time span of 3 months. App Academy had attentive instructors who really cares about the students and were welcoming and helpful. They have an exquisite curriculum  and many materials to learn. The students and colleagues were also fantastic and I am happy that I met them. Overall I would recom...

    10/10 Would highly recommend.

    As someone with zero background with software engineering / coding, I thoroughly enjoyed and learned a lot from their well-crafted curriculum. The course is quite rigorous, and the instructors are super attentive. Everybody is super welcoming and willing to help one another out - instructors and students alike. I look forward to the job search and applying the skills that I have acquired over the last few months.

    Great Bootcamp! Would 100% reccomend/

    The instructors explained lectures in a timely and orderly fashion. The curriculum was well-crafted by team of highly-respected professionals. Every day, I could not have been more excited to arrive to App Academy, as the lectures were paced appropriately and staff were welcoming. Learning how to be a full-stack engineer was amazing. Meeting great colleagues was enjoyable. At anytime, I could always ask staff for help, as I looked up to them. It was my honor to be here. I'd like to thank...

    Software Engineer

    App Academy was an incredible experience, start to finish. The staff did an amazing job teaching me completely new things I had not learned prior. Every day was something new and there was plenty of chances to practice all of the material. I highly recommend this program to anyone scratching the surface of the coding world!

    Hard, but worth it.

    Disclaimer: I did the 16 week program, but it was online rather than in person due to Covid.

    For me, App Academy was a great experience. From great instructors to amazing cohort mates, the people are what made the journey fun and enjoyable. When I started, I expected to be pretty much isolated from the rest of the world for 4 months coding. However, App Academy's friendly instructors and my fellow cohort mates made the physical isolation feel like nothing as I would log in every d...

    Fullstack Software Engineer

    I enrolled in the Fullstack Online Immersive 24-Week program in December 2021 and graduated 2022. My time at app academy was full of interesting and compassionate people that really understood the material and weren't afraid to tell me what was need to grow. My only regret is going online!

    Intense, but worth it

    I attended the 16 week App Academy program starting in December and graduated in April. I started with a little bit of knowledge on coding. However, the course progressed very quickly through that. While it may feel overwhelming at times, the TAs were super helpful and always available to help. The assessments aren't terribly difficult, but definitely need to be studied for. My fellow classmates were great people and willing to help. A majority of the class was spent learning Rails, Java...

    Definitely Recommend :) fire emoji x7

    Finding self studying hard? Don't know where to start with coding? A bootcamp may be for you! App Academy has an amazing support system, whether it be the mod leads, the TAs, to your own cohort mates. It is fast-paced though, and if you don't study or do the homework, you will fall behind. It's for your own benefit, anyways! Now that I'm in job search, I can full-heartedly say that my career coach is absolutely amazing and super helpful. A tip I would give is to start practicing DS&A...

    App Academy is hard, but very doable

    I completed the 24 week software engineering online program.  It was hard, but if you do the homework and study the practice assessments you will be fine.  It was quite a ride, and there were times when I wanted to give up, but I got through it and now am in the job search portion of the program.  App Academy teaches you how to learn effectively and efficiently.  We had one week where we learned python and then two weeks later we built a full stack app using a python backend.
