    Software Engineer Intern

    I attended App Academy in 2020, and had an overall positive experience. The main things that I got out of App Academy would have to be computer science principles, a strong and large network, and the confidence to go out and learn on my own. I am currently in the midst of my job search and I can largely attribute the attention that I am getting and what I know thanks to App Academy. Some things that can be worked on would just to make sure the curriculum is constantly being reviewed so t...

    App Academy Grad 2020

    I attended app academy from July 2020 - Nov 2020, so the entire course was conducted via Zoom. The curriculum was intense and required me to essential dedicate my entire day to coding besides eating and sleeping. The teachers were helpful, but could have had a few more due to the high demand of questions amongst the students. I found a role in Feb 2021 due to a referral. Biggest tips would be to make friends and create study groups so you could rely on one another to motivate and help wh...

    A great program

    I would highly recommend App Academy to anyone who is wanting to switch careers. The TA's are very helpful and in my cohort the other students were very supportive of each other. It's a difficult and stressful program, there are assessments every week or two and you need to pass them to stay in the program. It's very fast paced because there is a lot of information to cover, and there will always be more to learn, but I think one of the most important things you learn to do at App Academ...

    One of the most valuable experiences I've ever had

    App Academy provided me with the structure I needed to learn the foundational skills necessary to become a software engineer. Their admissions process is rigorous for a reason - they need to select great people to be a part of the bootcamp because we have to pair program everyday. I thoroughly enjoyed closely working with new people on different projects and met a lot of talented individuals who had a lot to offer. You can surely learn all of this material alone, but definitely not at th...

    Full-Stack Software Engineer: In Person

    It is a very immersive experience with exposure to different technologies and practicing what we learned through trial and error through projects. Learned a lot once we started individually doing full-stack projects, testing what we learned, and expanding our initial understanding of the topics and concepts we learned through video lessons as well as guided lectures. Personally, I learned way more and at a faster pace than I could have on my own. I really respect that they don't just tea...

    Software Engineer

    AppAcademy was one of the best experiences of my life. I've met some amazing people in my cohort and the instructors were amazing. They helped me improve my coding skills dramatically and  I was able to create some amazing project I never thought I would ever be able to create. Although the bootcamp is very intensive, I wouldn't trade this experience with any other from another bootcamp.

    Amazing Project based curriculum

    App Academy was an amazing experience, a place where i grew in my knowledge of languages and experience using fullstack technologies at an insanely fast rate. This was not something i could have done alone, and the structure App Academy had allowed for me to learn new languages quickly by being hands on and not just reading theory. I think for those looking to learn practical experience in coding and learn how to actually create something to grow their experience, this is the best bootca...

    Well-structured curriculum

    App Academy is a great starting point to coding if you need structural guidance and strict time management along your journey. But after all, it’s on you to decide how would you like to learn.
    Pros:
    • The well-structured curriculum consists of 11 weeks of lecture+pair programming projects, 2 weeks for a fullstack project, 1 week for a MERN group project, 1 week for a JavaScript Project, and finally 1 week of career quest lectures and pairboarding time...

    Great Start to Your Programming Career

     After attending App Academy, I can truly say the experience was something else. App Academy is a fast paced bootcamp that teaches you several technologies and languages. Some pros and cons will be listed below

    Pros: The structure of the entire course is well put  together. I believe they did an excellent job teaching Ruby, a language that reads almost like English, in order to allow students to transition into a programming mindset. Pair programming everyday allowed students to g...
