    SDG is the best gift I have ever given myself.

    I'm a former firefighter turned small business owner that had zero tech experience before SDG. I first learned about SDG while searching for coding schools in Florida. They were offering a test drive class at the time so I decided that would be a good place to start and see if coding was for me. Well, that class left me wanting more and I fell in love with the staff so I knew I would be attending their academy. 
    The academy is tough. I commuted to school every day which made the long ...

    Graduated a dveloper

    I came in knowing pretty much nothing about web development and came out a competent developer.  All of the staff members are supportive and awesome.  If you are thinking about becoming a coder, this school will get you there fast.

    AMAZING

    I moved to the St. Pete/Tampa area from Cleveland, Ohio with intentions to go to some sort of bootcamp and I am glad I decided on SDG. I came here knowing no one and no real career path, connections, or deep knowledge in web development. From the very first time meeting the staff here to any time after post graduation SDG staff is there to help, make you laugh, and continue to teach.

    This place truly creates a family like bond in 12 weeks. The training i received completely chang...

    In 12 weeks to change your life!

    I heard about Suncoast Developers Guild from a friend of mine who has been a developer in the area for years.  I was working a robot-zombie job and I desperately wanted out of it.  I started looking into their program, and their job placement percentage, and what I would need to do to be good as a developer.  I had taken one summer course in C++ when I was a teenager, and nothing since.  

    Once I was accepted, I threw myself into the pre-work, because I wanted to be very good at t...

    Great school, Great program.

    Coming from a small amount of coding experience, I was worried I would be overwhelmed with the course load. The instructors and staff at SDG were incredibly helpful in allowing me to succeed in the full stack web development program. They provided useful job search resources and answered any questions I had about homeworks and assignments. I also appreciated the sense of community among fellow students during my time in the bootcamp.

    SDG - a wonderful place to start your new career

    Coming from a background in graphic design, I was often able to work on the creative content for websites and digital advertising for clients in a very limited capacity. I always dreamed about crossing over into web development, but often found myself stuck in markerting and advertising roles, afraid to make the switch. 

    When I finally came across Suncoast Developers Guild, I was ready, but apprehensive about making such a big career change. Looking back from the other side of th...

    Amazing Experience!!!

    I got laid off and decided to take a chance on Suncoast Developers Guild Academy and was one of the best things I could have done. They Full-Stack course was a challenge but they helped you all the way. One of my favorite parts was the field trips to actual tech companies  and the guest speakers

    Jumpstart your new career

    In 2015 I wanted to learn how to program. I am 100% satisfied with how my career has gone since I enrolled and took a leap of faith. I have kept in touch with many of the students I graduated with and we have all progressed beyond my expectations. If you are on the fence I can tell you that this program will really help to change your future. I really wouldn't be where I am at today without this program. Thank you!

    Career Changer

    Great experience with great results. However, it isn't easy. Far from it!. Study and do as much pre-work as possible before the course begins.  You'll be working nights and weekends in addition to the program if you want to be effective. You'll have to dedicate your life to this so be sure to be sure. Get ready to learn at a blinding pace and be challenged. If you follow the SDG team's instructions you will have a high probability of entering the world of development. This program is 100% ...

    SDG, an incredible stepping stone in the world of web dev

    From the first time I stepped into SDG for my interview with Jason and Toni, to the day I walked out as a graduate, SDG felt like home. Even now, two months later, I know that SDG is a friendly and welcoming place, whether I need help with a code problem, or just want to hang out.

    The staff is incredible. I truly believe that the instructors are world-class developers, and I feel truly grateful to have had the experience to learn from them. They continue to be an extremely valuab...

    I would do it again in a heartbeat!

    I’ve been a Daycare administrator since I can remember. Always passionate about computers and looking for a career change, one of my best friends recommended me the Suncoast Developers Guild bootcamp to speed up the process of learning to code. I wasn’t even sure what that meant when I decided to start, lured by the lifestyle and promises a career in tech can offer. 

    I had to commute from Sarasota every day and I wasn’t sure if I was going to last the entire 12/Week process. I ev...

    Prepare to learn

    From JavaScript to resume writing, the SDG does it all. During the 13-week course, I went from never having written a line of code to now being able to construct functional web applications. Every lecture is tailored to what the current class needs to focus on to become successful developers. 

    My experience was different than most as I commuted from New Tampa to St. Petersburg daily. I will recommend living closer to ensure success but it is possible as long as you are a very ded...

We all know that veterans make great coders: discipline, collaboration, and technical skills are all synonymous with the military. Until 2017, the GI Bill, which covers education benefits for veterans, was slow to cover code schools, accelerated learning programs, or online education. However, with the enactment of the Forever GI Bill in August 2017, it's becoming easier for coding bootcamps ...
