    Best Decision

    I am graduate of the Software Engineering Intensive June 2018 program. Because of this program, I was able to successfully pivot careers and get a Front End Engineer position a month after completion with zero past coding experience.


    What I love most about NYCDA is the community, which is perhaps the most important asset you can have as someone new to tech. It's a very laid-back yet still incredibly ambitious and dedicated group of people at NYCDA. You will not...

    True Passion

    True passion and focus for the students was unmistakably genuine with the two professionals I interacted the most with.

    First, my instructor Cam not only went above and beyond the baseline criteria  needed to get us through the course but also promoted immense support and critical thinking. He was always patient, professional and taking his own personal time (as much as he could) to help. He would even put together additional mini lessons if anyone was stuck on a concept or chall...

    Unparalleled Dedication

    NYCDA completely changed my life. I've spent over a decade working in bars and catering, barely scraping by, struggling to make rent. Today I signed an offer letter to start a new career as a developer!

    The course was one of the hardest things I've ever done in my life but also the most rewarding. I had Cam Crews as an instructor and he was amazing. He didn't just have us memorize code and spit it back out. He taught us how to learn. Going forward I know I'll never run into a cha...

    Would do it again

    I had a great time during my Web Developement Intensive course! My instructor David was amazing, as was our TA Ro. The cirriculum tought me the basics of what was needed to become a professional web developer. More importantly, I learned how to think like a programmer, and how to learn programming concepts. I'm currently a React Native engineer. React Native wasn't a part of the cirriculum, but I felt confident in my ability to learn because I had gotten so much support and learned the fun...

    Summer 2017

    I took the New York Code + Design Academy intensive coarse this summer and it was the best experience I have ever had in a schooling environment. My instructor Casey was incredible, always willing to work through frustrations and difficulties until I fully understood why something was not working the way I had intended. I would recommend this coarse to anyone who is interested in learning code, here you will not only learn full stack web development, but even more importantly you will lear...

    Opened the door to so many opportunities!

    I am an alumn of the third cohort of the New York City Tech Talent Pipeline Residency @ Queens College. It is a four-month program that provides exposure to professional opportunities in tech for computer science majors. Upon completion of an initial four week web development and job readiness course, delivered on-campus by an instructor from the New York Code + Design Academy, participants begin a paid internship at leading NYC businesses in web and mobile development roles and conn...

    Awesome Experience!!!

    I personally had a great expierience with Nick he was very knowledgable and was very good at explaining how to develop websites and explain how different applications of code work with web development.

    Josh was also very goo dat connecting us (as students) with the community and potencial employers.  It made me personally feel very good that I actually found work in coding before I even graduated and he helped me look up potencial questions that they may want to ask me.

    A great experience

    I attended the Web Developement Intensive course and had a great experience. The curriculum was fast paced, but our instructor was good enough that he was able to challenge those who were catching on the most quickly, while spending more time with those who were not. 

    I only wish that there was a little more emphasis on pushing our websites to production. We only spent a short time on that, and after the class was over, I struggled remembering/solving problems that I encountered ...

    Web Development Intensive Sep - Dec 2016

    I would like to share my personal experience after taking course. Before that, I had no programming skills and my field of activity was not related to technologies. Nevertheless, I decided to change my life and take an intensive course in web development, which I do not regret, and moreover, I am very grateful to NYCDA. I liked very much how everything is organized in the academy, from filling out an application to graduation and job search. I am especially grateful for the help of my inst...

    A worthwhile investment

    I took this class with a career change in mind - I wanted to become a full-stack web developer - and I was actually hired by a startup before the class was even over (initially as a freelancer, brought on as a salaried employee a few months later). It's important to put this in context - I had been working as a self-taught web developer for about 2.5 years before starting this class - I had a pretty solid grasp of the basics and could build simple apps in a LAMP stack and hack my way throu...

    Best choice I've ever made!

    When I decided to do a career change and learn web development, choosing from the various bootcamps and programs in NYC was a bit daunting. Choosing NYCDA was the best choice I've ever made. The school is small and warm, and it truly does feel like family. David was my instructor, and I can say that he was really supportive and was always available to help and provide resources whenever I asked. Krystal is a fantastic success coach and really took the time during and after the program to m...

    UX Immersive

    TLDR:  Don’t enroll in UX programs at NYCDA,  they are great sales people but awful teachers.  

     

    I recently withdrew early from the UX immersive program.  I have never been more disappointed with an experience at a school, which is why I felt compelled to write this, even after receiving a full refund.  Keep in mind that I left a good high paying job for this program, and I can’t immediately find another high paying job.  So I have lost income and greatl...
