    Incredible experience, more than I imagined!

    I was traveling for work and I wanted to make a career change to be closer to home and spend more time with family.  I decided that software development was the path I wanted to take.  I heard about Momentum from a trusted and respected friend who is in the industry and has worked with people that were involved with the program.  

    I spoke with members of the staff before joining who were honest and genuine about what to expect and some of the challenges I would face and how they w...

    Full Stack Immersive Course

    When I started looking for a bootcamp, I thought no matter where I went I would be in, learn, and be out. I was wrong! Momentum has been the best experience and I could not have chosen a better bootcamp. I've been telling everyone I know to sign up! From the moment you start speaking with admissions, it is a human experience! You feel the care they have for your success. The program is fast-paced but if you are willing to put in the work- it pays off. With a recent graduation I have alre...

    I can't recommend Momentum enough!

    I thought the amount of time spent learning valuable programming languages and frameworks was appropriate, the coursework was rigorous, yet extremely apt and applicable to entering the tech industry, the instructors were amazing, super knowledgeable and supportive throughout the program, as were (and still are) Momentum's student experience manager, their director of career services, the rest of my amazing teammates, and the extensive, supportive alumni network. I thought the overall atm...

    Great support & instruction staff, strong local network

    I am very happy I chose Momentum as my software development bootcamp. I was deciding between Momentum and a larger national bootcamp to attend in the Spring of 2020, after the initial quarantine from COVID-19. While I attended Momentum's Full Stack program, I received first class instruction and support through SLACK and zoom, not just from program staff but from various alumni as well. Here are some of the reasons I would choose Momentum again:

    Well-Tailored Program with Dedicated, Genuine Staff

    Quitting your job to start a new career is daunting, to say the least. I was considering code schools, but I was not feeling confident any of them would be worth my investment. A local developer suggested I look into Momentum, and those feelings quickly changed.

    I am so glad that I invested my time and trust in the Momentum program! Here's why: 
    - Their curriculum is tailored to the needs of the local dev community. (They even have an advisory board whos...

    More than learning code

    One thing that really sets Momentum’s Immersive program apart is the network of software companies that are receptive to advising or hiring new developers. At the same time that I was learning new web development skills, I was meeting members of Momentum’s Advisory Board, visiting offices of local companies, and talking with past graduates about starting their careers. As a career changer, this was a huge value for me, as I was able to start getting an idea for where I wanted to take my ca...

    Part time team 2 experience

    Completing the part time full-stack program was one of the best things I could have done to prepare me for my new career in software engineering. I was very nervous about completing the program while teaching elementary school full time, but my instructors were really flexible to help make it work. I’m excited to start a new career knowing that I have the right skills!
    Great instructors and mentors! Accommodating and compassionate for students with dis...

    Momentum accelerated my job preparedness

    Before joining Momentum I tried learning software development on my own. In the immersive course I learned more in the first few weeks about git and JavaScript than I could have hoped to learn after months of self teaching. The rapid pace at which I’ve taken on new skills and developed projects has boosted my confidence, and now that I’ve graduated I’m continuing to receive career support from the Momentum team and alumni network while I search for my first role. I truly enjoy coding, an...

    Worth every dime!

    I'm very happy I chose Momentum for their immersive coding program. It was an amazing experience that took me from complete novice to competency. I'm currently working in my dream job, and look forward to growing my career. There are very few opportunities to change your entire career in three months. I highly suggest you take this one.

    Great place to learn and grow

    This course is a challenge and you will be pushed everyday. It is like a work out but for your mind. The curriculum is transferable and the skills you learn will carry on with you to your next position.  

    I’m currently working in cloud services which uses a lot of different technologies than what I studied at Momentum. However, because I leaned the basic principles to software development and gained researching skills I was able to quickly learn at my new job.

    Excellent education + Powerful networking

    I was new to the area, and looking to make a career change into the Triangle’s Tech scene.  Code school is a pricey proposition, but Momentum’s job placement guarantee and stellar reputation made the decision easy.  

    I got a solid education in HTML, CSS, Javascript, Python, Django, API design, agile methodologies and MINDSET.  Industry leaders spoke to us about a range of topics.  We were given opportunities for meaningful networking weekly, and given a personalized job plan.  Du...

    Immersive Course - Front End Path

    The immersive course solidified my understanding of programming and taught me how to be an independent developer. Prior to attending Momentum, I had a basic understanding of HTML, CSS, and Javascript that allowed me to build very basic static websites. Momentum furthered my knowledge of front end development by introducing me to Node.js, React.js, and how to interact with APIs. They also taught me how to use Git effectively among many other things that improve your quality of life as a dev...
