    Changed Everything

    I was in cohort #2 and Project Shift really changed my life, I have never been so happy to go into work because I’m really doing something I love, at a place I love.

    I graduated with a degree in Psychology and was working in Real Estate when I discovered Project Shift. After speaking with Aaron and Sean I moved to North Carolina from New York to start my new journey. Within 2 months of graduation I was hired!

    Could not have done it without you guys!

    A Rewarding and Challenging Experience

    I would like to start off by saying that this was one of the most challenging seasons of my life. Coming in with hardly any software experience, I knew there was going to be a steep learning curve. However, Aaron, Sean, Morgan, and the TA made this curve achievable. Project Shift not only taught me how to become a programmer but also how to learn and to keep learning. The approach is so much different than what I have heard about other courses. They actually care about the whole person and...

    Exactly what I needed.

    When I started looking at bootcamps, Project Shift immediately stood out to me. I was very excited about their selective admission process. I was confident that if I was accepted I would succeed.

    Before I started, I was a bit worried that 3 months would not be enough time to get job-ready. The precourse work prepared me for what was a very fast paced curriculum. I worked many weekend and evening hours to make sure I got as much as I could out of each lesson. The curriculum builds a...

    You will learn, if you choose to.

    Like some of the other reviewers, I have not taken part in Project Shift, but I was in Aaron's first bootcamp Tel Aviv, both as a student and later as an instructor (note, I do not work or have current plans to work with Project Shift in the near future).

    As a student I learned a ton from Aaron - he's got a real knack for explaining concepts at their core level - even if he doesn't understand something to its fullest (which is rare, but happens) - he will do the ...

    Great Choice

    Project Shift is a great software development fellowship. Days are long (9am-5pm, M-F), and weekends are busy (eval projects pretty much every weekend), but after 12 weeks, you will be amazed at how much you learn. The instructors care about creating junior developers who have the tools to continue learning, and can contribute positively to a team/company.

    There are two aspects of this program that I especially liked. Firstly, the career development and mentorship components are...

    So glad I found this one...

    I have 2 bachelor's degrees from highly regarded universities and an extremely academic family (PhD's all around); so quitting my life and opting for code school instead of grad-school was a hard sell, both to myself and my friends and family.  Still, after years of thinking about it, looking into various coding programs, I decided to go for it.

    I did A LOT of research on my program options, but chose Project Shift for a few reasons:

    1. small cohort - they cap each one ...

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!...
