    I started the Software Development course in the peak of last years lockdown and I was definitely impressed with how seamlessly Eleven Fifty transitioned to offering online instruction. 

    The instructors were very knowledgeable and helpful, and everyone was willing to put in work when a question was asked that they could not answer. 

    This is an accelerated course, so you have to go into it with the drive and the willingness to work extremely hard, but this was one of the most rewarding experiences for me. I came in with zero coding experience and left with a specialization in .Net development and the confidence in those skills to look for an entry level coding position.

    After a fairly extensive background in IT (systems and networking), I felt the need to change course some and get into a new career path. I had always been interested in coding/programming/developing and had dabbled in it for years. When I first learned about Eleven Fifty Academy I was a little skeptical. After researching it some, I knew I had found an opportunity that I couldn't pass up. I took the full time course in software development and in three (3) months had learned enough to become readily employable and start in a great new career adventure. While you can learn this material from a number of places (and all over the web), one of the great benefits that Eleven Fifty Academy brings to the table is well-planned path to teach the main points of whatever course curriculum is chosen to get the student up-to-speed with what is needed to get a job and start a career. They also help guide and instruct on the skills needed to get a job, and, they teach you how to continue to learn on your own so you never stop learning.

    I came to Eleven Fifty with zero background in tech, let alone coding. I never excelled in science or math in my formative years, so I had never really considered a career in tech besides maybe a sales role. Eleven Fifty showed me I did not need to be a math whiz or computer guru to learn how to code. Learning to code is essentially just learning another language. I certainly was not the most talented student in my cohort, but by the end of the bootcamp I was able to build a full-stack web application from scratch using JavaScript. My newly learned skill opened up additional tech opportunities that have lead me to the position I am in today: a full-time tech role doing things I never would have thought I would be doing, within 1 year of graduating from Eleven Fifty, and loving it. I also know there are so many others that have come through Eleven Fifty with very similar stories and outcomes. If you are on the fence about enrolling at Eleven Fifty, let this be your sign :) .

    Throughout my whole experience at Eleven Fifty, I felt that everyone was on my side and invested in my success. From the Learning Team, to the Student Success advisors, all the way through to Career Services, I always felt like they had my back. I also love that EFA is dedicated to helping the community and the individuals who are part of it. They've done amazing things for Indianapolis and it's so great to see their reach expanding to other parts of Indiana and beyond. So glad to have had this experience.

    My personal experience was first trying to learn "code" on my own through online resources but falling short because I wasn't sure exactly what to research and the application that each language should be applied.  I decided I needed some guide-rails and chose EFA to produce this.  Not only was it an intense program, providing a ton of information, project-based challenges, but it was also clear that the learning team truly cared about the success of their students.
    The biggest take-away that I came out of the program was the ability not only to understand the fundamentals of JavaScript, React, and Nodejs; but how to really research and practice building.  Since I've gone through the program, I've seen how the program has not only changed, always taking past experiences and building a better system with it, but track for even more improvement coming.

    Eleven Fifty Academy has given me more than just an education but much needed direction in my life. This bootcamp provided me the tools and instruction I needed to explore my own interests inside the cyber-world. As well I was provided with direction toward advancement and a network of like-minded professionals both experienced and new to the tech world. The friendships and skills Eleven Fifty has helped fostered I believe will be invaluable to me going forward!

    This is sincerely the best tech bootcamp.  The instructors care and value the success of their students.  The curriculum was up-to-date and prepared me to be career ready.  The Career Services are amazing and help prepare you for interviews and a professional presence, as well as help you to land interviews and a job.  It was an overall amazing experience and I doubt there is a better school out there.

    I decided to attend Eleven Fifty Academy after losing my job in the restaurant industry during the height of the COVID pandemic, and I could not be happier with my decision. Not only were the instructors attentive and knowledgeable, but the coursework was up-to-date and covered just enough of the basics to make me hungry for more knowledge, without getting too much "in the weeds". The Career Services department did a great job of guiding me in my job search following the program, fostering a personal dialogue that helped me establish my priorities in an unfamiliar field, and their well-established network of connections was very valuable. Overall, I feel like I can comfortably call myself a Web Developer with the experience I gained in this course, and I am extremely excited to see what my future in the tech field has to offer.

    It is definitely not a walk in the park, but if you can stick with it you will learn a ton and have a solid foundation by the time you graduate. The coursework is rough, the instructors are wonderful, and the career center can't be beat. It really is one of the most fulfilling things you can do for your future.

    I was extremely impressed with everything that 1150 had to offer and brought to the table. I originally went into this course with zero knowledge of software development. Now I've been a developer for the past 2 years and one of the first in my company to be hired on full time without having a college degree. Now applications for my company say "A college degree, or a trade school equivalent". Simply put, Eleven Fifty Academy works and gives you all the tools you need to be successful. But in the end, it will come up to YOUR personal drive and commitment to making your dream come true.

    I felt stuck in my creative/marketing job and wanted to pursue something new so I could be refreshed. I didn't want to spend too much money or time in a traditional setting so I found that bootcamp was the way to achieve my goal. It had to be a reputable institution and I wanted an in person experience. I found Eleven Fifty, the school that filled all buckets. I'm so glad I did. I'm not joking when I say that every single staff member you meet is ridiculously driven to help pivot/jump start your career. They are kind, knowledgeable and well connected in the industry. My career counselor was sending me applications daily. They truly wanted me to succeed. They will help craft your resume and give you tips on interviews as well as connect you with someone in the industry. They give you all the tools resources and are your biggest cheerleaders. In the end, I got a job I absolutely love. I wake up ready and determined to conquer the day. I have Eleven Fifty to thank for that.
