You see I was fortunate enough to have section 101 in person before the 2020 pandemic hit and we switched to online. It was truly a developers paradise.
The downtown location is inside the Capital Factory portion of the Omni Hotel. I believe they owned 2 or 3 floors. The main floor where the classes were held was by far the most impressive.
Upon entering I was met with a Star Wars themed layout, with different decorations, a Han Solo in Carbonite walkway rug, TIE fighters hanging from the ceiling, etc.
And the view...was...breathtaking. In particular at night, when gazing at the city of Austin lit up down below. This floor was also fully equipped with multiple lounge areas featuring couches, tables, microwaves, refrigerators, coffee makers, and even a tap. After my initial tour, the tour guide and I actually went back up and he poured me a beer from the tap. We talked while I watched developers nestled up in couches typing away on their laptops.
Also during my classes, there was construction going on as they were adding on more to an already impressive floor. ACA really put's their heart and soul into the downtown location.
- Why I'm Glad I Chose Austin Coding Academy- 6/14/2019Abby Gottlich • Associate Software Developer • Graduate • Course: Front End Track • Campus: Austin • Verified via LinkedIn
I'm so incredibly happy I chose Austin Coding Academy for several reasons. The staff is awesome. They are very personable and the class sizes are pretty small, so your teachers know who you are, your strengths, and what you need help with. They are up-to-date on all of the latest technologies. I had an internship during my time at ACA and there were some new things that I had learned in class that the senior developers at the company had not even learned yet. Class times are optimal. They don't have any courses (that I know of) that meet during regular business hours, so it's very manageable if you also work a full-time job. ACA also prepares you for your job search. They have an extra job placement course at the end of all of your coding courses that preps you for interviews and helps you get your portfolio site/LinkedIn/Resume looking good for employers. Finally, the curriculum is very challenging, but this is a good thing! You REALLY get what you pay for. I HIGHLY recommend ACA to anyone interested in starting a career in technology!
- I have a new career!- 5/24/2019Ronald Hajewski • Web Developer • Graduate • Course: Advanced • Campus: Austin • Verified via GitHub
I am a recent graduate of ACA's Full-Stack Web Development bootcamp. I learned essential skills to build web applications, design websites and most importantly - how to find work. I am now one week into my new job as a web developer.
If you're thinking about becoming a developer but not sure where to start, I recommend contacting ACA to sit in a few classes and see if it's right for you.

One year ago I was doing the same research as anyone reading this review. The questions I wanted answers to were: Can I do this? Is the investment worth it? Can I get a job after this program? The answer to all three is yes! As a recent graduate who has landed my first job in the field, I would make the exact same choice again with Austin Coding Academy. I am a career-changer who after years of job hopping was tired of not feeling fulfilled with my career choices. With the help and unwavering support of everyone on the ACA team, I now feel prepared to begin my new career. ACA provides all the tools anyone could possibly need to be successful in the program. The staff goes above and beyond to make sure students have every opportunity for success. Great teachers, great staff, solid curriculum, a sense of community, tutors for assistance outside of class, and help to find a job. What more could you ask for? ACA provides everything needed to acquire the skills necessary to move into a career as a developer.
- Great people teaching cutting-edge skills- 2/16/2017Zac Collier • Graduate • Course: Advanced • Campus: Austin • Verified via GitHub
- Great Experience, Life Changing- 6/17/2019Darwin Risser • Software Support Analyst • Graduate • Course: Advanced • Campus: Austin
If you are serious about changing careers, Austin Coding Academy will get you there. With the help of the fantastic teachers and other faculty at ACA, you WILL achieve your goals if you work hard and stay committed. This is not an easy program and you shouldn't expect to be successful if you aren't willing to work hard, sacrifice lots of free time, and struggle along the way, but if you commit to the program and follow the advice of the people trying to help you get a job, it WILL happen. I graduated at the end of April and had two job offers by mid June. All it takes is the right mindset and work ethic and you can do the same.
- Great Community & Growing- 6/6/2019Katie Macaulay • Web Developer/ Manager • Graduate • Course: Advanced • Campus: Austin
Austin Coding Academy is one of the most unique and wonderful education experiences I have had in my life. Before I started ACA I was a teacher for 9 years, and my mission was to (and still is) to express my deep loving commitment towards my student's success and advocate for their voice in the community and choices the school makes for them. Austin Coding Academy breaks the barrier between students, instructors, administration and the larger community to insure that students who take the effort to attend classes and commit to learning (even if they might not know how), are successful in finding a new career. Of those who graduated, all are finding new opportunities that are exciting and challenging to them in the Web Development World and getting paid well to do it! Most of my peers have become my greatest support and closest friends. ACA offers continuous support to students after graduation to help students from networking to interview advice, and has helped me create great connections. To sum it up: ACA builds community, grows and evolves with quickly changing Tech, and commits to helping each student be successful.
- Working ACA grad- 1/24/2019Laurie Hansson • Developer • Graduate • Course: Advanced • Campus: Austin
Attending ACA opened a lot of new doors for me. I was trying to break out of a series of dead end jobs and pursue something more. Development was a foreign subject to me, but I had a passion for designing and discovered that so much of coding is just as creative as it is technical. I learned the fundamentals of web design through the introductory course, and after pursuing internships & community events, I was able to utilize the knowledge gained through ACA to pursue my dream career before graduating. I highly reccomend this school.
- ACA helped me get a job!- 12/31/2018Greg Swan • Web Developer • Graduate • Course: Front End Track • Campus: Austin
The curriculum is constanly changing to keep up with the fast pace of the industry. As a developer, It's critical to keep up with new web development trends and technologies. ACA did such a great job of helpping me hit the ground running by teaching the same tech I'm now working with on a daily basis.
I cannot say enough about the quality of this program because I would not be where I am today without it. After graduating the program, the staff at ACA really worked hard to help me land my first development job. I've been in that job for almost nine months now and couldn't be happier. I would reccomend this bootcamp to anyone looking to learn the foundation of modern web development— ACA is good people!

If you are looking for dedicated people who are passionate about teaching programming and assisting you in every way, ACA is the right place for you...They will give you the right tools and show you the way to become a good developer. You’ll still be putting all the effort but the experienced instructors will always be there when you need them.

- Great learning experience!- 9/11/2018Karen Davis • Student • Campus: Austin
I entered the UX/Freelance track already having a background in web design. This track has helped me to improve my skills and bring them current. I have also learned new skills and applications that will definitely help me be more successful. The instructors and staff are great and I couldn't have chosen a better program to be in!
