    Incredible

    I could not have believed that after 14 weeks I would be working as a Software Engineer. A good foundation for the working world. My classmates also had good success finding jobs afterwards.

    Do Not Doubt It

    Tech Elevator is something that seems too good to be true. I personally dont think I would had believed it myself until I had seen first-hand someones life change for the better in 14 weeks. After personally seeing someone go through the process and graduate Tech Elevator and earn an outstanding job, I decided to take the chance and I do not doubt it for a second. Tech Elevator teaches you technical skills, improves your professional development, and surrounds you in an overwhelmingly supp...

    Worth the expense

    If you want a job as a programmer, this is probably your best option, except for actually getting a degree. The technologies covered in the curriculum were a good selection for full stack web development for the most part. I believe they have added more discussion of front end JS framework recently. The classes are taught by experienced instructors, not TAs, which is what makes Tech Elevator stand out, and experienced tutors are always available.

    Tech Elevator - a review

    A little about me. I did my undergrad in biology thinking I would go do some research. I was feeling uninspired, but still felt some pressure to make a decision about what to do. It's no doubt that I'm a procrastinator, so after a long time (about as long as this long essay) I decided I wanted to be a software developer. Once I had my mindset, it was no big deal. I joined Tech Elevator in August 2017 and, after graduating, I've been working happily ever after as software dev for almost 4 m...

    Prepare to learn

    Tech Elevator is a bootcamp that helps you get the base knowledge needed to start your career in computer programming. The most important thing to remember is that you get out what you put in. I cannot stress enough to put in the work to learn the concepts, even if it means giving up something you enjoy temporarily. You may see your friends and family less for a few months, but the pay off will be worth it.

    The instructors are readily available during the day and throughout the n...

    Fantastic bootcamp experience

    Before starting Tech Elevator, I felt dissatisfied and under-utilized in a marketing role at a company with a toxic culture. I did some self-study of HTML, CSS, and other basic programming concepts online, but I got to the point where I didn’t know what I didn’t know. I interviewed at Tech Elevator and in learning more about them, I was impressed by David Wintrich’s experience and his vision for the bootcamp, along with the structured aspect of the career development program th...

    No Regrets!

    I chose Tech Elevator because of David Wintrich's experience. He was the architect of Pay.gov (the government's paypal), which deals with $10 billion every year. I knew he had to be good at what he did, and I knew that he had also hired tons of junior-level software developers. He's an excellent teacher and leader.
