    Incredibly effective program

    Enrolled in App Academy's software engineering bootcamp last year.

    Course was very informative and covered all the topics one would need to get a career in software engineering.

    Through the help of their interview prep materials and guidance, I was able to pass an interview and got a software engineering job in Asana. Would recommend to anyone looking to shift to a career in software engineering!

    Best coding Bootcaml

    I can not say enough about how grateful I am to app academy for giving me the tools, knowledge, and networking power I needed to switch from working in special education to software engineering. 
    From the day to day course and lectures provided by experts in the field who answered question after question (yes the same question lol) with patience, to fostering great coding skills and collaborative coding by proving daily pair boarding opportunities with other clas...

    Challenging and Rewarding Experience

    I joined App Academy's remote program without knowing much about web development. The main stacks I learned were Ruby on Rails/React/PostgreSQL and MERN. Our daily sessions were almost all similar, with lectures in the morning and pair programming on labs in the evening. Instructors were there to help us with questions and issues. Expect A LOT of information each day. I finished the program with 3 projects for my portfolio. For the job hunt, I received help with my resume, technical inte...

    Fulfilling, Challenging, Worth-it

    App Academy is great. They truly prepare you for the workforce. However it's a very tough course and not for everyone. You need to be extremely self motivated - you cannot just sit through this course. You need to be actively working and coding throughout to get something out of it. That being said, I highly recommend it!

    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'...

    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.

    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...
