    Full Stack Development Immersive

    Overall a very positive experience. I came in with next-to-nothing prior knowledge of coding and development. The course seemed to move extremely fast and I questioned whether I was retaining much. But once the project phase began and the education was put to developing applications I was amazed at how much I had learned in a short period of time. The instructors do a great job the curriculum by covering as much as possible in the limited time while still giving you time to understand it. ...

    Solid program.

    It was a great experience. You have to be ready to study and work a lot. It is really what you put in what you get from the program. Byte is rapidly growing and expanding. Their instructors are very good and smart. 

    My only criticisms are:
        - I believe it is more of a full stack program than a fintech program. They have finance lectures and they are good but I did not see a connection between the coding and the finance. 
       - More emphasis on the prep work (I underst...

    Intense but good

    My experience at Byte Academy was intense. I had to work hard, and probably learned the most in the short duration that I was there. It all paid off though. I was quite happy with the final project that we completed in my cohort and was able to get a great job within a month of graduating. Thanks Tom, for all your help with my final project and with preparing me for job interviews.

    I guess it is quite true that what you'll get out of Byte is what you put in. If you're ready to wo...

    Small Cohorts

    I loved the small cohorts at Byte Academy. Our cohort had access to a few different technology instructors as well as a finance instructor. Also, we had teaching assistants available to help. I entered without much of a background in coding and was able to learn a lot in the 3 months that I was there. The small cohorts and the many different instructors had a lot to do with my learning. 

    The focus is on learning by doing. I think this is very useful since I needed the encourageme...

    Great instructional camp for beginners

    Summary: Great for beginners. Do the prework. The smallness is both a positive (hands on instruction) and a slight negative (small network of fellow students and alumni through whom to find jobs). Great at teaching you the basics and how to learn. The phase 3 project is an awesome opportunity to build skills and build a portfolio showpiece. Python is great for the finance industry, academia, and data heavy projects. The career services aspect is a little lacking, and needs more structure.<...

    Awards for reviews

    What will people do for $500 from amazon? Post nonsense reviews on this site! Read the reviews for this school and see which ones you believe in. I am quite troubled when people spam review sites. 

    I graduated from Byte Academy and now have a job at a tech company building finance products. I was quite happy with my experience. I learnt a lot and it was 3 months well spent.

    Past Reviews

    I am seeing the past critical reviews that were put up this month and I am quite astonished. My experience at Byte Academy has been quite good and I don't know anyone from my cohort who will agree to these last few reviews. I would encourage everyone to visit and speak to current students and teachers.

    Byte Academy

    I am happy to say that joining Byte Academy is one of the best decisions I have made. I am a current student, not graduated yet. The program consists of 3 phases and by the end of the course every student will become a fully qualfied web developer. After completing 2 of 3 phases successfully, I can say that the curriculum is well designed to transform highly motivated individuals with or without prior programming experience into full stack developers. 

    Instructors are not only hi...

    Best Boot Camp. Great choice.

    I come from a computer science background. I graduated college in December 2015 and joined Byte in January 2016. I wanted to be a stronger developer so i wanted to join a boot camp. I was pretty skeptical of where I wanted to go, and I remember reading the reviews on this site, and becoming more skeptical, not knowing if Byte would be a great experience. However, because I wanted to learn python/django I went with it and joined byte.  Jeff was my instructor for the three phases; he was a v...

    I learned more than I expected.

    After attending four different boot camp meetups in NYC, I decided to attend Byte Academy for one reason: Billy (lead instructor) was the most intelligent person I met at any of the schools. I also met a former student (Adam) who seemed very bright and passionate about programming, who sold me on the culture: enthusiastic, kind, and driven. I'm glad I attended the meetup and met Billy, because at the time, Byte Academy was *not* at the top of my list -- their website lacked polish, their s...

    I am glad I signed up for Byte Academy. My cohort was small, so I was able to get a lot of attention from the instructors and teaching assistants. Quite amazed with the great student-teacher ratio. I really needed the individualized attention, so thanks to everyone who helped me along the way!

    The program was tough. I had no programming experience before joining. I found myself spending extra time trying to keep up with the rest of the class. However, the late nights definitely p...

    Great bootcamp

    I initially chose Byte Academy because of the unique technology stack that it teaches. Most bootcamps are more front-end oriented and my intention was to learn a language that will be powerful on the back end. Byte Academy teaches full-stack web development around Django framework. We have been writing Python code every single day. I really like the structure of the program. Every assignment was challenging and fun. We covered a lot of various concepts such as recursion, b-search, objects ...
