    Great Program & Great Value

    As someone who wanted to make a 180 degree career change and quickly develop marketable coding skills without breaking the bank, Parsity was the perfect bootcamp for me. From a top level perspective, it checked off a lot of the boxes I was looking for: fully remote learning environment with the flexibility to work at my own pace (and either full-time or part-time), continual mentorship and support from the staff both during and after the program, and insanely good value when comparing th...

    Career Changer

    Switching from teaching into the software engineering field was a daunting prospect but joining Parsity helped me transition smoothly.  Like many others have said Parsity has great hands-on practical activities and experiences.  You deeply learn the principles and apply them.  The program is rigorous but if you do the work you will succeed. This program really sets you up to succeed as a software engineer.  I gave four stars to job assistance because they are still growing in that aspect...

    UI Engineer

    I was part of the first cohort to attend Project Shift, now Parsity.  It was a great experience and has been one of the best decisions of my life. Even in its infancy, and with all its growing pains, which you can read in some of the other reviews, Parsity prepares an individual to be a software engineer.  The small class sizes is a key part of the success of the program, as well as the one on one mentoring and feedback on course work.  Parsity does a great job of balancing the amount of...

    An Amazing Experience

    After taking some Udemy courses and doing some 'self-learning' regarding coding, I decided to join a bootcamp to get more hands-on and practical experience. Parsity delivered that and more. From the very beginning, I was learning not just about how to build software but also how to use the skills I learned in the real world. The weekly evaluations were all enjoyable and helpful.

    One of my favorite things about Parsity is that it doesn't start at an absolute beginner level- one rev...

    A Bootcamp and a Half

    Parsity is more than a bootcamp. It's a software engineering school. You're not just going to clone someone else's app and put it up on the fridge for your mom. You're going to learn engineering principles and build your own applications that work across the whole stack. This is not an easy program, but I graduated exceedingly well prepared to show my portfolio and speak meaningfully to senior devs about how and why my projects worked. Two months out from graduation I had two employment ...

    Best decision I ever made

    I researched a lot of different programs before deciding on Project Shift, and one of the main reasons I went with them came down to a gut instinct. They seemed really genuine and invested, and it turned out my instincts were right. Everyone was genuinely invested in our growth. I went from having no technical experience, just an interest and a drive to learn and to change my life, and I came out of it with a new career that I love. I feel like Project Shift set me up for success, and I ...

    > 1 year out; still extremely satisfied with the program

    The experience at Project Shift was better than I expected & more than I could have known to ask for, and definitely set me up for success in this field. Over a year out of the program, I'm still regularly leaning on fundamentals that I was taught there, and it gave me the skills and confidence to dive into new technologies beyond the JavaScript that we were taught and to think critically across the full stack of a software application.

    A few highlights:

    If you're serious about making a career pivot, Project Shift is the place for you

    When I first started programming, I was only able to study on nights and weekends due to my job and the progress I did make was very slow. After about 6 months, I realized that if I really want to make this career transition, I would have to dive head-first and do this full time. I started looking into different software engineering bootcamps in the area but Project Shift was the clear winner for a number of reasons.

    Can't Say Enough

    I recently completed the Software Engineering Immersion Program at Project Shift and can't say enough about my experience there.  I had no coding experinece whatsoever and had no job expereince in the software world either.  I enrolled in the 3 month program and did the 1 month prep course prior to the program as well.  In just 2 months and 1 week after completing the program I received an offer at an incredible software company in downtown Durham, north of $70K with incredible benefits.  ...

    Turned my hobby into a full time career!

    It was during college when I frist got introduced to programming. I completely fell in love with it! Ever since I am always coding during my free time, just for fun. Although I did enjoy my time in college I had to stop my education due to financial reasons. One of the things I've realized as a computer science student is that computer science DOES NOT equal programming with that being said you can get a job in software development without a degree in computer science (I am no...

    Jumpstarted? No- ROCKETED a career change into software engineering

    I went to Project Shift with absolutely no tech background. My background was sales and financial planning. I was living in the Middle East when I heard about Project Shift. In April 2018, I flew to Durham and attended (My pregnant wife remained in the Middle East until we met up after Project Shift concluded).

    It was an absolutely amazing experience with Aaron, Sean, and Morgan. This course/fellowship requires a lot of hard work, but it pays off. At the end of week 8, I was hit ...

    More Than a Bootcamp

    I would do voluntarily do this program again just to hangout with Aaron and Sean in the fun learning atmosphere they created. The intimate class size and heart that they have for this program is not to be understated - I genuinely felt like I was a part of a family there, and still do as part of their alumni network. This is not to downplay the fact that this was one of the most taxing things I've ever done in a 3-month span. It is NOT easy, but the reward of how much I was able to learn a...

Schools and universities may be scrambling to figure out remote learning, but coding bootcamps have essentially been preparing for this since 2013. Online coding bootcamps already use Zoom video, Slack, GitHub, and VS Code Live Share for pair programming, online lectures, and to connect mentors and instructors with students. Of course, you can learn to code online – but it doesn’t stop there!...
