Avg Rating:4.85 ( 359 reviews )

The Tech Academy offers several full-time and part-time technology bootcamps that can be completed online or in-person at their Portland, Oregon campus. The Tech Academy offers bootcamps in computer programming, website development, cybersecurity, and front end development. The immersive experience aims to create well-rounded technology professionals, and also gives students the option to take the course at their own pace. There are also no set starts dates or rigid scheduling. Students can enroll at any time, study from anywhere and choose whatever study schedule they would like.  

Their bootcamps cover topics including computer science fundamentals, programming basics, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SQL, C#, Python, Bootstrap, jQuery, React.js, project management, Agile, Scrum, MVC, version control, and more. Each bootcamp also includes a Live Project where students gain real-life experience to add to their resume as well as job placement  assistance. 

None of The Tech Academy's bootcamps require any tech background or experience. To apply, applicants need to take an IQ test with logic-based questions (to ensure applicants can read, write and perform basic math), followed by an in-person or phone admissions interview. The final part of every The Tech Academy bootcamp is the Job Placement Course which covers interviewing skills, resume writing, where to find tech jobs, and gives students access to job placement staff who assist students in landing technical positions. 

The Tech Academy partners with Academy of Learning and Launch Life.

    In a more detailed sense, I learned a new programming language (for me anyway). Learning the syntax was good and it was very beneficial to see how PHP and HTML/CSS interacted with each other. I haven't spent any significant time on my own (prior to TechAcademy) learning how web pages are requested/made/sent, so this was great to see the server-side of things while learning deep fundamentals of programming in general via a specific language. Things like conditional statements, loops, and programmer defined functions will be essential concepts of any programming language, and this course gave me a great foundation in understanding those.

    The core concepts of programming learned here in this course transcend the programming language being used. So most of what I have learned, even if I don't do a lot with PHP specifically in the future, is 100% transferable to knowledge that can be applied when thinking about the process of creating code (programming) in general and when utilizing a different programming language. For me the big take away in this course were the little "best practices" advice given throughout the videos. Learning about good shorthand syntax to use, being made aware of poor shorthand syntax to avoid, being shown little thing that help keep code organized and readable while developing, and seeing multiple ways to accomplish certain tasks are all part of this best practice section that I really took to heart.

    The program that Erik and Jack have created here at Tech Academy is truly one of a kind and simply brilliant in its execution and distribution of knowledge. Even though I will doubt myself along the way, I know that all the resources needed for success, (and then some), are all available to me. I have been a little shy about asking for help when I hit a wall in my first week, but I feel more confident with the knowledge that even the veterans of the industry still have questions similar to my own. And that there is a strong network of people that will catch me when I fall and guide me with instruction when I am struggling to grasp a concept or start treading water.

    Thank you for this review! That's actually a common response from those doing the program. Erik actually designed the curriculum in such a way to give students the foundation they need in different areas like computer basics, front-end development, databases, and object-oriented programming that give you the firm foundation that you need as a developer. I hope you're building upon that foundation today!

    Ahhh Javascript! :) Before taking the course, I had a limited amount of familiarity with Javascript and its syntax. I feel like I gained a lot of practical knowledge about the jQuery library from taking this Javascript course. I really enjoyed going through the hands on tutorials in the videos and doing the exercises -many Aha moments for me! It let me see the bigger picture of how powerful the Javascript language is. The exercises also provided just the right amount of challenge to allow me to spend time reading through documentation and figuring out the intricacies of jQuery. Overall, I learned to appreciate jQuery more and look forward to working with it more as I want to specialize in front end engineering in software development. Can't wait to learn other Javascript frameworks in the future, and I think this course provided a strong foundation in doing so!

    When I first heard about the Tech Academy’s claim of 100% job placement, I thought that it must be some type of scam. I quickly emailed the school and scheduled a tour to check things out. Once I came through the door, I realized that my fears had been entirely misplaced. It was readily apparent from talking to Erik that this was not about getting him rich quick, but about teaching students the skills that they needed to get a job that fit them.

    I learned a lot more in the five months that I’ve been at Tech Academy than I expected to. I was sure that there was no way that I would be able to cram in all of the information in the curriculum in such a short time, but I did. The way that the courses are structured, with each building on the content of the previous, keeps everything that you’ve learned active in your brain and easy to recall when the next thing that you’re learning requires you to know it.

    Where the program really came to life was the Live Project. I didn’t think I was at-all ready when I started it (are you starting to notice a trend?), but after two weeks of working on the project, I knew JavaScript and jQuery inside and out. In addition, I got to be introduced to working in a team using the Scrum methodology, which has proven to be a very attractive skill to prospective employers.

    The instructors have been very supportive in my education. They’re always there to answer any of my questions and to give me a nudge if I need motivation. The lab-like environment that the school operates in has been very beneficial to me, personally. It has enabled me to do things at my pace, sometimes breakneck speeds and others at a slow but steady crawl.

    Lastly, the school has been phenomenal about helping students to find jobs. They conduct weekly interviews with the students to see where they are in their studies and in the job hunt, and always offer to help with anything that the student needs. Also, Danny, the job placement director, has been very proactive about sending out my résumé to companies that he thinks would be a good fit for me. I ended up getting a position with a great company the day before I finished the program.

    My experience with Tech Academy has been extraordinary and I would highly recommend the school to anyone who wants to pursue a career in the software development field.

    I was very pleased to make it through this program and land a job shortly after, exactly as intended/advertised. The curriculum was easy to understand and well thought out. Every exercise built upon lessons learned in previous exercises so you always felt prepared with the knowledge to accomplish your goal. The instructors were professional, friendly, and knowledgable and really understood how to steer you toward the solution rather than hand it over freely. Overall, I had a great experience and definitely recommend the program to others. FYI, I went in with no professional computer background.

    When I joined The Tech Academy a little over 5 months ago I did not know what to expect.  I came from having a little knowledge of programming in C#/XAML working on the Windows 8 platform.  I have to say that trying to teach myself C#/XAML was fun but I did not have a broad range of knowledge it was more like building a foundation a room at a time with big gaps between rooms.  After attending the school I really feel that I have a much higher understating of developing, and my foundation is so much stronger where I feel like I am ready to get a developer job.

    Programming is not, read a book and become an expert, it’s a constant learning and following tech. I enjoyed my time at the Academy learning and helping fellow students.  Technology moves very fast therefore as a student I encourage each and every one of you to follow tech news like your job depends on it, (It kind of does).  If you want to learn one thing and hope that it will never change, being a programmer is not the right career for that.

    What makes the Tech Academy great is their focus on two fundamentals of any job in tech:
    1) Having an understanding of how computers work on a big picture level andhow that relates to programming and software development.

    2) Having the ability to work through problems on your own in order to become a problem solver. That second fundamental essentially sums up the responsibility of an IT professional; getting paid to solve problems.

    However, The Tech Academy's commitment to instilling a foundation in the first fundamental is what separates it from other programs.

    I graduated with a degree in Philosophy and wanted to pursue a career in Data Science. I knew that I needed to learn how to code, and tried to teach myself. I found myself struggling and realized it was because I didn't have that fundamental understanding of how computers work. 

    The Tech Academy gave me that fundamental understanding that most software developers learn from a computer science degree. Instead I learned it in a couple of weeks for a fraction of the cost of a 4 yr CS degree.

    A great tennis player needs an experienced coach to teach them proper technique, and plenty of practice to master that technique. The same is true about programming. The truth is that no boot camp will make you into a software developer; only you can by practicing how to solve problems on your own. However, The Tech Academy teaches you the fundamentals of how to
    solve problems. 

    I highly recommend this program to get you started in the Tech industry.

    I recently got a job as a data analyst for a start-up and know that I would not have got the job had I not enrolled in the Tech Academy. Enroll in the Tech Academy and within a few months you will have separated yourself from other candidates for a job by learning how to code, and most importantly learning how to solve problems.

    So how to begin...Frank Lloyd Wright once said 'You can't make an architect. But you can open the doors and windows towards the light as you see it.' Wow, how true. The Tech Academy has opened a new door for me in my life. Working in the restaurant industry for many years had become mundane. To be honest, I had lost much of my drive to really learn and think and that's one of the greatest gifts that The Tech Academy has given back to me.

    The Tech Academy has given me the building blocks to learn and the positive environment to grow my confidence in a new field. The progression of the courses from Computer Basics through Mobile Development were seamless, with each course allowing me to grow quickly from a good foundation to completion and what I like to call 'a light bulb moment.'

    I can't thank the staff enough for the help and encouragement given to me throughout my time at the Academy.
