    Before I started I had no knowledge about programming, besides a few lines of html. 3 months later I am confident enough to say that I am a iOS developer. 

    We started with an introduction in Swift, Apple's new language. This took about a week and was just to learn us the basics of the syntax. Then we started learning Objective-C with help of a great book and even better teachers. The first weeks I was a bit nervous and I couldn't believe that at some point I was gonna be able to write a solid line of code myself. It was really hard. But when we started our own project, I realised how much I've learned. After the first project, building an app, we started another app for an actual client. At that point I realized I knew so much already. 

    The teachers at The App Academy are the best. Extremely patient and they know what you are going trough when trying to figure something out. They help you with everything. The curriculum is also great, thanks to the projects, which take over 7 weeks, you learn a lot about working with clients and solving real coding issues (you will have a lot of coding issues). Also youwill learn what you need when you get a job, for instance Git and UX Design.

    Besides all that, The App Academy helps you with finding a job, thanks to their great network. Roughly 3 months ago I was a cook who could make "Hello World" appear in html, now I am a iOS developer with two actual working apps.

    I have an Honest and different opinion.

    One of the worst programs I have ever attended in my life. Very poor material delivery. The teacher we had had no experience in teaching. When things went wrong in learning, they blamed it all on the student and kicked him out of the course. While the problem was in: they had no plans on what to do with students who fell behind. They gave me a book, and inforced me to keep reading by myself for 3 consective weeks. It was obvious from the first week my progress was slow, but they did not address it in the begining, they left the problem to escalate. Then they created more problems with me to make me want to leave.

    I do not recommend this Academy to anyone.
