    A way to change your life.

    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. B...

    Great Experience

    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 st...

    So Worth It!

    I had tried other bootcamps before enrolling in Eleven Fifty Academy, and despite all of the work I did, I never felt fully prepared to enter a new career in UX. After graduating from EFA, I felt 100% ready to tackle a career in UX head on, and I knew I had the skills necessary to succeed. What made EFA different was the hands-on, real-world experience I was able to participate in. It gave me an excellent start to my portfolio, which the curriculum focuses on building. The format of the ...

    Great place to skill up

    I had a great experience here. Once I got in contact with them they were quick to get me placed and in the classes. Class was effective and hands-on at the right times,, and I was able to get a job pretty quickly out of the cybersecurity program. Couldn't recommend it more! And the career services are so vital, it would be worth going here just for the network alone.

    Jump into a career in tech

    Eleven Fifty Academy in Indianapolis, Indiana gave me the tools and connections I needed to jumpstart my career in tech. I participated in the part time Javascript course because I was interested in learning how to build websites. That initial interest has evolved into a tech career. I graduated from a small liberal arts college in 2016, but was not 100% sure what career was right for me. I enjoyed a job working in marketing and media relations, but I wasn't fully satisfied.

    Job Ready!

    I cannot say enough about my time at Eleven Fifty Academy. I went in with almost ZERO programming experience and ended being able to write a complete program from beginning to end. The EFA instructor team is amazing! Everyone was always very available for questions and gave effective feedback when needed.
     
    But it's one thing to learn programming, it's a totally other  hurdle in getting a job after graduation. The Career Services team is stacked with total pros in the business and ...

    Web Development Program

    I enrolled in Eleven Fifty Academy's part-time web development program back in August-- and, I'm so thankful that I did! I've had several people approach me to ask my thoughts on the program. Here's what I've shared: 

    1.  The biggest thing I appreciated about this program is that it provided me with the foundational knowledge on how to go about building a full-stack application. When you're just starting out on your journey in becoming a developer, it can be overwhelming to decide...

    What a Great Experience!

    Before joining Eleven Fifty Academy for their part time Web Development program I was working in the world of Television Broadcasting.  This job industry like others is becoming a victim of downsizing to cut costs. While witnessing this trend I decided to enroll in something that could change my future.

    I heard about Eleven Fifty Academy online via random Facebook ads and have looked for free options as well as the price tag was the only factor that was keeping me back from applyi...

    Eleven fifty taught me the field work, and landed me a stable job

    I went here just wanting to get a stable job in the field without any field experience, and only knowing the fundamentals of some languages. At first it was pretty intense, but if you pull through and stick with the course you learn the languages and stacks, as well as what to build when you start bridging to other languages. I loved the teachers, they were all awesome, and helped me every step of way through the course. They teach the fundamentals, then dive into the complex stuff you'd...
