    My expierience

    My experience at the Big Sky Code Academy was great!  Starting out we worked through the basics of javascript and progressed at a nice pace.  Once we had javascript down we moved to react which was a lot to take in at first but with the small class size we got a lot of one on one time with the instructor to work through any errors or questions we had.  After we had the basics for a full stack app we did a few group projects and an entire blog on our own!  I learned valuble skills that are ...

    Big Sky Code Academy

    I am definitely happy with my choice to enroll in the Big Sky Code Academy. I decided to enroll in a web development boot camp after I felt static in my career and needed a change. Knowing I could not make moving to San Fran work, I started to look at my other options and was glad to find a boot camp right in my home town. 

    The instructors are super awesome and patient, which is imperative when learning so much information in a little amount of time. They are very dialed in to wh...

    Just what I needed

    I loved this course! The instructors are the most patient, friendly, and helpful people. My classmates were hilarious. I loved how we all felt comfortable being open about our strengths and weaknesses and being able to admit we didn't know or ask for help. Not only did I learn a lot of JavaScript, I also discovered where my talent lies with programming and coding. It was definitely a journey and not the easiest one at that. But the support of our team overwhelmed any of our doubts!

    Educational

    In the time I spent as a student at Big Sky Code Academy, I'd say the best way to describe it would be "educational." It was difficult, but it was also rewarding. To become a full-stack developer in 3 months involves a steep learning curve, but if you're willing to take it on, the results are pleasing in a way that only hard work can deliver. When I started, I felt like I dove head-first into the deep end, but when I finished I could understand concepts that at the beginning seemed like ma...

    Big Sky Code Academy: A worthwhile investment

    It's scary starting a new and huge endeavor like this, especially for a 20 something like me, fresh out of college with pennies to my name. I wasn't sure what the future held. I was worried things wouldn't work out.

    I can happily say that my worries were unfounded. A dedicated team took us in and got to work, molding a crew of computer illiterates into capable techies. 12 weeks of rigorous lessons flew by, and suddenly I had skills that could propel me into a successful career as...

    Available remotely and NO weekends!

    Benefits of BSCA’s bootcamp:

    GI Bill approved. BSCA let me use my windows computer even though the web development community “highly suggests” a Mac. I can’t afford a new computer right now. Remote-class format was the number one reason for taking this course. I had the option to travel to Missoula if I wanted face-to-face time with the instructors, but I never felt like I needed to take advantage of that. Other schools require ‘immersive weekends’ i...

    Big Sky Code Academy

    I'm very happy with my decision to join Big Sky Code Academy. The instructors are very knowledgable and patient which allows you to feel comfortable and have the hunger to learn every class. The first couple weeks they made sure we understood the fundamentals of JavaScript and progressed from there to using Vue, React, and Express. The curriculum is dialed in right now and is definitely worth your time if your interested in web development.

    Full Stack Java Script Course

    I took a full stack JS course from Big Sky Code Academy this summer and it was a great experience. I am a traditional Computer Science student during the school year and I found the course to be challenging and useful. I learned a lot and gained experience that I wouldn't have gotten in a traditional school environment. The skills they teach you are meant to prepare you for finding a job in the tech industry so you learn relevant, cutting edge skills that employers are looking for.

    Big Sky Code Academy - Java Script

    I took the BIg Sky Code Academy In the Morning Summer of 2017 and I abosolutly loved it. As a computer science major I have found this online clas very hands on and helpufl in terms of learning not only javascript but HTML, CSS, React, NodeJS and even a little bit of databases. For some one who is just starting out in code,  they will make sure that you are keeping up with the class and not falling behind. One thing I really admired in this bootcamp was that if you are having trouble tryng...

    I chose the right one...

    I am a non-traditional bootcamp graduate...three degrees...family...not in my 20's.  When I was looking into the bootcamp option I grew more and more skeptical as all of the articles out there share doom and gloom stories about people spending thousands for nothing.  So what did I initially do...I went the cheap route and subscribed to one of the many teach yourself to code classes.  After a few weeks of working with the platform I felt I needed more of a challenge so I ...
