    The best coding bootcamp I could have chosen!

    I found Kickstart Coding’s course content, instruction, and involvement in my learning process to be really amazing. They totally exceeded my expectations every step of the way!

    After graduating from college, I really felt lost and anxious about not being able to find a job. I was looking for a coding bootcamp to review the knowledge I picked up in college and improve my skills. Kickstart Coding looked like it had a solid curriculum at a reasonable price so I decided t...

    Great curriculum and teachers!

    After spending years as a software project and product manager flirting with the idea of becoming a software engineer, I finally got up the courage to sign up for a coding bootcamp. I looked at many different options and chose Kickstart Coding because it provides excellent value and is staffed by people that are clearly passionate about teaching technology. I enjoyed the in-class lessons which are an engaging mix of lecture, live-coding walkthroughs, and activities. The homework assignment...

    Couldn't be happier with my choice of school

    KickStart Coding's Full Stack program helped me level up from a curious novice to a confident, advanced level Developer. I am more ready than ever to apply to jobs, and with the project work completed during the program, I now have a portfolio to prove my skills. 

    Michael and Steve are super easy-going and helpful dudes, they focused on making this program as inclusive as possible (even offering laptops for those without one), and as such, they were ready and happy to answer any qu...

    The best coding bootcamp experience I could have hoped for

    Kickstart Coding was a truly an exceptional course. It is far more affordable than many other bootcamps, and the part-time schedule allowed me to continue working full time while enrolled. Classes were always engaging and hands-on, with numerous activities to reinforce previous material and apply new coding concepts. Weekly homeworks fit perfectly with the curriculum, and final group projects provided a great opportunity to create something exciting in a collaborative setting. While the ...

    Great Option for Working Professional

    Kickstart Coding provided a great programming bootcamp experience and was a great option for me as the part-time course structure allowed me to continue with my full time job, while paying a fraction of the price of the other programming boot-camps in the area. 

    The classes were structured to be very hands on, with multiple instructors present every lecture to help as needed. All of the instructors were very knowledgeable and friendly. Class material was structured in a way that p...

    Most industry-attuned and most affordable boot camp in the Bay Area!

    When I moved back to San Francisco, I needed to update my technical skills to transition back into the tech industry. I researched several coding boot camps in the Bay Area and came across Kickstart Coding (KSC). Although Kickstart Coding did not have that many online reviews, I found out that Michael Bethencourt, KSC founder, is a former instructor of the coding boot camp program at UC Berkeley Extension prior to founding his own boot camp. I got interested and decided to attend one of th...

    I went from zero tech experience to Junior Developer in 4 months.

    I come from a zero-tech background. I wanted to build an app. Michael said he could teach me that, so I signed up.

    I’m not going to lie. This bootcamp was hard. For a tech newbie with a full-time job and family, the time commitment is intense. I was often frustrated. I cried, a lot. I secretly thought that I shouldn’t have been admitted to the course.

    But I came out the other end as a web developer – with a new job. That hadn’t even been my goal, and you couldn’t find a...

    Awesome Bootcamp

    I knew absolutely nothing about engineering and I walked out 4 months later knowing the latest and greatest tools in web development.
