    Student

    I took the intro to Python course and it was fantastic. It gives you the basics to pick up the hard skills that are required in the python language. Greg (lead instructor for full-stack dev) was a fantastic instructor who is very passionate about showing multiple sides of the concepts and problems. He also helped throughout the course on the challenge problems which was FANTASTIC despite the class being a free intro course. Also, Kai (head of admissions) was very helpful in providing the...

    Intense, challenging, frustrating - and rewarding

    I did not graduate from this bootcamp since I got (and accepted) a great job offer about 3 weeks before my course ended. However, I did complete phases 1 and 2, the bulk of the curriculum, so I can speak (only) to that. Phase 3 is mostly independent work, working on your solo and group projects.

    The best thing about this bootcamp is the size of the cohorts. It's very small, it feels like a family and you get to know everyone really well. not...

    Exactly What I Needed

    I was a somewhat non-traditional student at Byte in that I had a fairly extensive professional background in software development (PHP web applications & iOS) and I was looking to modernize & expand my skillset rather than learn development from scratch.

    The small class size, personal attention, and focus on student-designed projects meant that they were able to tailor my experience to my needs. It is a very challenging introduction to Python, but the support is there for ...

    Python Full Stack

    Coming from Banking & Finance background my objective of joining the course was to understand the tech side & develop holistic perspective of Fintech sector. 

    Attending class & assignments after a long gap was not an easy task, but was made easy due to the program structure of foundation followed by full stack. 

    The course content is industry aligned, faculties knowledgable & helpful. The greater emphasis on hands on assignment has helped me learn the nuance...

    A steep learning curve

    I am part of the Python Full stack Bootcamp. It's been an intensive couple of weeks since I started it off. The first phase covers a lot of basics in Python such as data models, data structures, modules, file operations etc. These foundation concepts have helped me understand the language from a better standpoint. 

    The Byte academy has developed a highly effective curriculum. The assignments and hands-on sessions during the class help a lot in understanding how to write effective c...

    Get the hands experience you need

    After, graduating from college, I felt that I didn’t have the hands on experience that a lot of companies are seeking. Byte Academy not only gave me the full stack development skills; they also gave me the finance education that allowed me to find and thrive in the FinTech industry. Upon leaving the bootcamp I found a position as an python developer in a startup company, called Enso Financial in the fintech industry. After, the company saw a successful acquisition, I left the c...

    Course: Summer Full Time - Python Full Stack - Phase 1

    As coding becomes ever more important of a skill to learn, the options of places to learn them have also expanded. Searching for a course which focuses on Python and exciting applications, Byte Academy's Curriculum stood out to me by far as the most exciting, beneficial and lucrative.

    I attended byte academy over the summer of 2017 as part of the summer bootcamp and i have to say Im glad i did!
    Located in the heart of Manhattan in an amazing office building , byte academy from the get-go  gave off a real professional and academic feel to it, which i felt added hugely to the whole experience, as it gave me a true kick of inspiration and drive to hopefully turn the skills learnt from the course, into a job which would place me in a location very similar.

    Learned a ton

    I took the bootcamp earlier this year and learned a lot. The small cohort size worked for me. Our instructors Nikhil & Jeff were very good. Nikhil is especially good on the fintech concepts - seems he has a lot of experience.

    I graduated early this year. Our cohort had two instructors. One who worked at JP Morgan and the other at a startup. Between the two the fintech course was well covered, and I learned a lot. Would do it again any day
