    Practical experience for all experience levels

    I joined Horizons without a technical background and not really knowing what applying for technical jobs entailed. A couple months in Horizons changed all that and gave me a whole new perspective on what it was like to be in the industry.

    Horizons starts off with the basics and ramps everyone up to a comparable skill level through detailed tailored courses. The TAs during the program were also an invaluable resource and guided students along masterfully during this period of time. ...

    A Genuinely Life-Changing Experience

    Oh man, I could write a whole novel about how much I loved my experience.

    Horizons has given me the tools to grow my skills and passion for technology and entrepreneurship in a way that I never anticipated.

    The summer of learning cutting-edge web/mobile dev, networking with amazing companies and fellow Horizonites, and bonding in a community of amazing students with like-minded interests (who have also gone on to intern at the best tech companies because of Horizons) gave m...

    The best Practice you can get

    At the university, you can gain a lot of knowledge but not much practice. 
    As a student of computer science and neuroscience, I learn a lot of theory but don't gain any practical experience. 

    The summer at Horizons allowed me to get relevant experience, meet top students in the country and make a lot of enthusiastic friends. Horizons is much more than just learning how to code. It allows you to build the right connection for the entrepreneurship world. 

    I would ...

    Horizons helped me unlock my potential

    Before Horizons, I was a typical business student with an interest in tech. Horizons transformed me into a leader with a strong grasp on technology and a powerful network. There are 3 key advantages I gained from Horizons: Skills, Network and Mindset.

    Skills:

    At Horizons I developed a strong competency in web development with JavaScript, and walked away with the ability to code my ideas into reality. I went from never writing...

    Giving me everything I needed to pursue my passion in tech

    As a business student and product design enthusiast, Horizons helped me complete my knowledge of software products and the tech space. The education, community, and opportunities propelled me in my work at my university as a leader of a software organization as well as my current work as a product manager at Atlassian. I would highly recommend anyone who is interested in tech, pursuing careers in tech, or seeking a stimulating and motivating summer to do Horizons.

    Horizons Fellowship Amazing Experience!

    When the engineering department at SMU sent out an email to its students about the Horizons’ fellowship opportunity, I was intrigued. For me, learning how to develop mobile apps has been a lifelong dream of mine. However, two years into college and I still had no clue how to do it.  I knew that I wanted more and perhaps I could find it at Horizons. After establishing that they would accept a 15 year old college student (if I could pass the test, etc), I decided to go for it! I ...

    Summer at Horizons

    Participating in the summer Horizons program was an incredibly rewarding experience, both in terms of personal growth and career development. First and foremost, the instructors provide a challenging and practical education in software development that I believe is a great supplement to or replacement for a traditional university CS degree. Most if not all of the other reviews will express the same sentiment. Additionally (and more meaningfully to my career path), Horizons gives students a...

    An unforgettable learning experience

    *Warning: this review is pretty (very) long-winded, so brace yourself

    The summer of 2017, right before my senior year of high school, I decided to take a leap of faith and jump on the Horizons bandwagon. For the first time, the program was opening its doors to high schoolers, so that in and of itself made my experience quite unique. Perhaps that also makes me uniquely qualified to address my fellow high schoolers, who may or may not be consider...

    Horizons CAN be life-changing

    Horzions School of Technology is similar to many "summer"/semester programs. The results gained are a lot on you. What differs comes from the potential.

    Horizons does a great job with how they work with you on a personal basis. Each person is unique and their program is shaped on their own, but the basic mold provided by them is already so advanced. The education is strong for people experienced in web development and those who've never coded in their lives. Though, the difficulty ...

    The Best Summer Ever

    The title says it all. Horizons was the best three months I have had and will be for a while. Horizons may be a coding bootcamp and you may go with the intention of learning how to be a full stack developer. But the coolest part about Horizons is, it will give you way more than that. It will teach you the most important skill one can posses as a coder. It will teach you "how to learn". It will give you so much confidence, that your learning will not be restricted to what you do in those 12...

    Door opening and well worth the cost

    I did Horizons last summer and found it to be well worth the investment. I had concerns before the program started about what could be learned in three short months, whether I’d enjoy myself during the program, and whether the skills I’d learn would be worth the cost.

    First, I was very surprised about how effectively put together the curriculum was and how quickly we could learn new material. Although I like to think of myself as someone who is motivated to learn on my own, I have ...

    Better than College

    I spent the summer in San Francisco learning at Horizons and I am still amazed at what an incredible experience it was! I learned practical skills at a rate that vastly outpaced that of my CS classes at UW-Madison. In addition to this, these were skills that could be immediately applied, unlike some of the non-practical skills that college CS programs require you to spend time on. Another thing that shocked me was how well Horizons instructers were able to teach students who had never prog...
