    Long overdue review, amazing school

    So Austin Coding Academy means a lot to me as they marked the beginning of me taking my coding education seriously. The support and community is amazing which really helped me stay motivated. I learned so much in such a short amount of time, and the connections I made helped me get my foot in the door with contract work and internships, then finally a salaried job. The tutoring is very generous and an amazing component of this school I didn't see being done elsewhere. The curriculum is a...

    Let's talk about the location.

    By now I am sure you have already read reviews about the quality of the teachers and the curriculum. I can confirm they are both outstanding. However what I want to share to about the location, the downtown Austin location to be exact.
    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 own...

    Why I'm Glad I Chose Austin Coding Academy

    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 ...

    I have a new career!

    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.

    Software Engineer

    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 ...

    Great people teaching cutting-edge skills

    ACA is simply the most bang for your buck out there. I'm lucky to have had the opportunity to go through their 3-tier program. I recommend it to anyone interested in learning web development!

    Great Community & Growing

    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 w...

    Working ACA grad

    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 b...

    ACA helped me get a job!

    I took Austin Coding Academy's JavaScript Full Stack course. I began the course in January of 2017 and graduated the following December and could not be happier with their program. 

    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....
