    Part-time was great, Full-time would have been better!

    I have worked in customer service and operations my entire career, zero coding experience.  I was skeptical I was going to be a coder, but with intense focus and determination this program delivered.  I worked full-time and have 2 children.  Even with my husband picking up nearly everything, there were still many late nights and a tear or two when I became overwhelmed.  The hardest part was finding the uninterrupted time for practice and assignments while trying to balance life. If I had...

    If you have the time and the grit, this will get you there.

    I actually attended the 24 week Part-Time Web Development Course.

    Due to Indiana CARES Act Scholarships I was able to attend Eleven Fifty Academy 100% for free, but I can honestly say after the fact that it would have been worth it if I had paid full price. Eleven Fifty allowed me to launch from a completely unrelated field into the tech industry. I had done some code studying on my own before attending ( with free online resources) which helped tremendously with the fast pace at ...

    Worth It

    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 mos...

    Developer/Instructor

    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 b...

    Life Changing

    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 w...

    Eleven Fifty Cares.

    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 h...

    Learning How to Learn

    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.

    Great Staff

    The instructors and Learning Assistants are all awesome. They take the time and effort needed to help you really understand. Also, getting help after hours in Help Queue is invaluable. The Career Services team bends over backwards in order to place students into new careers. Their connections and hard work are one of the best parts of this boot camp.

    Simply Life Changing

    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!

    Best Experience

    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.

    Truly Valuable Experience

    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, fosteri...

    Software Development Program

    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.
