    Very Helpful and Effective Bootcamp

    Everyone involved at Tech Elevator makes it very clear they care about you and your success the whole way through. From when you start to the day you get a job, they are there every step of the way. All you need to do is try and put in the effort and they'll carry you the rest of the way. You'll make good friends and trust me when I say everyone is probably feeling the same nerves and anxieties as you. Just reach out to your classmates or instructors and you'll get the help you need.

    A valuable experience

    I had an amazing time studying at Tech Elevator. The program prepared me not only on the technical side but also in the soft-skill aspect as well. Although there are limited options through matchmaking, the career team of the program worked diligently to get me placed in a job. Overall, I strongly recommend it.

    Tech Elevator: Launching My Tech Career

    If you're considering a coding boot camp, check out Tech Elevator. I went from a web novice to a confident junior developer in three months, and it was an awesome journey. I had previously dabbled in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript with the Odin Project and FreeCodeCamp, but I entered the program with minimal experience.  Our instructor was amazing, their passion for code was contagious, and their expertise felt bottomless. No matter how stuck I was, they were always ther...

    Everything you need to become a developer!

    This bootcamp did everything I had hoped for and more, both on the tech side and the job-support side. As a former desktop developer, it was a great refresher for relational databases, plus it checked all my boxes for topics I was dying to learn: OOP, C-based languages like Java and JavaScript, HTML, CSS, how to be Agile, how to code unit tests, and how to use Spring to complete the magic of API calls that make web applications work. Our instructor was incredibly knowledgeable and always...

    From High School Math Teacher to Junior Developer in 14 Weeks

    I still can't get over how surreal this whole experience was. First of all, the other thirty-something students in my cohort were amazing. Everybody was so nice, helpful and got along so well that it really made it quite sad to leave the bootcamp at the end of the three months.

    Additionally, I learned that I REALLY loved to code. I thought this might be true given that I started teaching computer science partway through my 16-year career in education (and generally enjoyed it), bu...

    Great overall experience

    I thought the curriculum was well designed and gave me a very solid understanding of fundamental programming principles. The access to in person instructors one on one daily was very valuable, as well as the connections with hiring partners (though there were limited offerings at matchmaking for my cohort).

    Amazing and Practical Technical Experience

    Tech Elevator is a fantastic program! With their combined technical and career instruction, I was transformed into a complete novice in coding to an employed Software Engineer before I graduated. I believe anyone, with the right attitude, can complete this program and become extremely prepared for a life in tech. The instructors were insanely compassionate, and my instructor in specific was a Tech Elevator alum herself, so she understood our position excellently. Only consider this if yo...

    Tech Elevator is for Any and Everyone

    Tech Elevator was an incredible experience. The teaching staff was incredible and it is obvious they are passionate about educating people. The support staff is also incredible, from to bottom the entire staff is always available to offer whatever support you need. One of the things that made me feel compelled to write this review, is that during my cohort I face some rather tough personal challenges. Still, I never felt that additional stress because it was obvious I had the full suppor...

    A Life Changing Experience and A Lot of Information

    I joined the boot camp straight after high school. I have always been a hard worker and a dedicated person who had his life goals set years prior. Although there was a lot of new information every day, I believe I received the help and instructions I sought which then helped me succeed overall. I had zero interviewing experience so going through that I had a lot of practice with the pathway director(s), also had my elevator pitch perfected by the time we stopped presenting them. I had St...

    My time at Tech Elevator was one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life. Not only does their staff want you to professionally succeed, they care about their students as well. It's hard to believe how much I was able to learn over the 14 weeks. The instructing staff is extremely knowledgable and will always go the extra mile to make sure you are learning and understanding the concepts. The pathway staff is always hard at work trying to weed out more opportunities for TE grads. The ...

    Well Worth The Money

    I was really hesitant about putting so much money down to join a Bootcamp but I'm really glad I did. The proof of how good this boot camp was is how quickly I got hired which was one month after graduating and the pay was great, way more than my current job. I can't praise this school enough. I went in with a lot of pre-prep and learned a great deal when I entered and the best tip I could give would be to learn by yourself for a couple of months, get familiar with the curriculum, and the...
