    Awesome Learning Experience!

    I attented Eleven Fifty Academy's Full Stack JavaScript cohort of December 2018. I cannot thank enough the shool and staff for this incredible learning opportunity. This is one of the best decisions I've made in my life. I was able to gain the skills to pursue a career I'm passionate about. Since day one the entire school was very supportive and made sure all the students had everything they needed to succeed (including snacks, drinks and lunches). 

    It is a very fast paced progra...

    A catapult into software development

    I cannot speak enough benefits for Eleven Fifty Academy as a resource for anyone motivated to make a career change into software development. I originally expressed hesitancy while considering EFA, although a precursory visit to the facility to meet current staff and students convinced me of the extensive resources available to current and former students.

    Pros:

    Eleven Fifty's greatest benefit is teaching students to grow independently. The program may begin with some h...

    Amazing Program!!

    I have a tendency to be verbose so I'll try to keep this somewhat brief- just rest assured that the topic of my recent career transition is one I could gush about nearly endlessly.

    I was interested in pursuing coding for a few years before attending Eleven Fifty, but thought I would have to put a lot of time and money into going back to school and getting a CS degree. The fact that I was able to break into the tech field in just twelve weeks? It feels like cheating, but I couldn't...

    JavaScript Bootcamp

    The value you a student receives from this program is amazing.  You have to put in the work, but the instructors and staff will make sure you understand all the key concepts and go out of their way to help.  Additonally, they put an emphasis on helping graduates land a job.  I highly recommend this to anyone interested on learning how to code.

    JavaScript Graduate

    The 12 weeks spent with Eleven Fifty Academy was challenging, exhausting, and exciting. I came into the program having done my research, so I knew it would be difficult and fast paced; but whew, it was crazy fast. The first 2 weeks had my head swimming in symbols, characters, numbers, and words that had me questioning if programming was for me. Slowly those words, numbers, and symbols began to make sense and that is when the excitement comes.  

    The instructors are knowledgable, a...

    JavaScript 12 week

    I came to Eleven Fifty as part of a career change which was a risk for me. Before coming to the school I was fully employed with an advanced degree in my former field. However, I was miserable in that career and Eleven Fifty was a great chance to change.

    I came to the school with the only coding experience being the weekend course and pre-assigned work. If you are on the fence at all take a weekend class and see. I found there was zero difference in the environment and quality of...

    Update EFA saved my future!

    I wrote a review recently about how amazing the school was and the only hang up for me was being an out of state student and not being able to continue because of financing. Well the president of the school called me and offered me a way to continue my education despite my trouble with the loan servicer I had. I don't think they understand how much they changed my life by doing this. I have never met school administration that went above and beyond for their students when they didn't hav...

    Take a chance

    Just starting out in my tech career, I knew one of my early goals was to earn certifications. With EFA I gained so much more than that; I gained a new community! If you’re unsure about checking them out, definitely take a leap of faith.

    Eleven Fifty Academy is a great place to learn and change to a new profession.  I wanted to get into the cybersecurity world and found a certification program to be the best course for me.  Two things that pulled me towards EFA:  1)  They had a shorter and more focused program.  Some IT certification programs go for 6 months or more and prep you for 12+ certifications.  EFA went for 3.5 months and prepared me for 2 industry specific certifications.  Doing the math there it shows that EFA...

    UX/UI

    As a graphic designer, I definitely benefited from the course. I learned how to use a few new applications for prototyping and the guest speakers they brought were really insightful. The coursework is at your own pace and was flexible with my full time work schedule. I would suggest this course to any designer wanting to learn a new area in their industry.
