    Fantastic experience

    TLDR: This course is a fantastic investment. You will learn what you need to know in order to get hired as a junior dev immediately upon graduation, as long as you are appying yourself.  

    The long verison: 

    I was in the most recent cohort, Jan 2018-April 2018. I had an excellent experience. Trip and Tom are awesome teachers. Trip was our main instructor and he is REALLY fantastic at explaining difficult concepts, and clearly puts a great deal of thought into how he delivers...

    Great Overall Value

    This is a great program - especially for individuals with little to no coding experience looking to change their career.  I started as a former high school teacher with only a few free codecamp lessons under my belt.  I'm thankful to share that this training taught me what I needed to know to secure a position in software development shortly after the course concluded.

    I have no regrets about choosing this program.

    Here were a few things that helped me ...

    Want a great tech education?

    Cutting-edge true full stack education. Tom and Trip are outstanding instructors.  As a recent graduate, I could not be happier with the JRS Code school experience!

    The best way to learn to JavaScript

    Having struggled to find the time and motivation to learn coding skills on my own, I decided to try a bootcamp to fully commit to a career change.  The JRS Coding School was the perfect experience for me. Going in with little JavaScript experience, by the end I felt proficient as a junior level JavaScript developer.  The teachers of the course, Tom and Trip are great at imparting their knowledge in accessible ways. Having the course from 9-5 really helps you commit to learning how to code,...

    Highly Recommended for Both New and Experienced Devs

    I highly recommend JRS Coding School not only to those who may be thinking about a career change, but to experienced web developers who have not yet had a chance to work with full-stack JavaScript, the future (now present!) of web development. 

    Whether you're a back-end dev proficient in server-side rendering (PHP, Ruby, etc.) and looking to get your feet wet in client-side rendering apps; or a front-end coder looking to expand your skills across ...

    Best coding experience around

    Tom and Trip are wonderful programmers and even better individuals. They lead with passion and the kind of knowledge and experience you rarely find in a coding school. As a developer with experience in various code school environments, I 100% stand behind their method and endorse the JRS Coding School to anyone who may be interested in learning code from scratch or looking to dig deeper into client-side and server-side applications.

    An amazing learning experience. Money well spent!

    JRS helped me kickstart an entirely new career.

    As a bit of background, I had a Master's degree in Human Resources, and spent five miserable years working in that field.  Finally, I'd had enough, left my job, and started at JRS in January '18.

    It turned out to be an amazing decision.  I'd argue that those months were some of the most fun (and fulfilling) months of my life.

    Our typical day went something like this:

    Show up mid-morning (9ish) ...

    An Amazing Program!

    My experience at JRS Coding School was everything I'd hoped for out of an emersion program.  I had very little programming experience before going to the school and I came out with enough knowledge to get a full time job in the software developement field.  The instructors went above and beyond to help us learn, and they have a passion to further the industry and stay on top of the direction it is heading.  The frameworks and technologies we were taught are some of the most sought out in t...

    Awesome Learning Experience

    Prior to starting JRS, I would have considered myself an absolute novice when it came to software coding and development. After 12 weeks of an intense yet absolutely enlightening full-stack development immersion, I consider myself confidently qualified to pursue any entry level software development position. I could not have asked for a more patient, knowledgable, and effective duo than Trip and Tom at JRS. I endorse JRS without reservation; what sets JRS apart from the rest, is that they ...
