Avg Rating:4.84 ( 237 reviews )

The Tech Academy offers 5 full-time and part-time technology bootcamps Portland, Oregon; Seattle, Washington; Denver, Colorado; Salt Lake City, Utah, and online. The bootcamps include a software development bootcamp, a data science bootcamp, a C# and .NET bootcamp, a Python bootcamp, and a web developer bootcamp. These boot camps cover topics including computer science fundamentals, programming basics, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, SQL, C#, Python, R, 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, and job placement  assistance. The immersive experience aims to create well-rounded software developers, 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'd like.  

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 interview. None of The Tech Academy's bootcamps require any tech background or experience.

The final part of The Tech Academy course 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 also offers corporate training.

The Tech Academy is in partnership with Concordia University.

    The Tech Academy gained my attention through online searching and reviews. I hope to return my experience so others starting their search can use my experience in their decision. 

    I have an over-time job, full-time family, and part-time college; so I enrolled in the online boot camp. This allowed me the flex needed in my schedule. I was allocated adequate time to complete each course topic. Topics helped to reinforce lessons learned during parts of my computer science degree. The biggest difference between CS classes and The Tech Academy is the Tech Academy took the learning out of a mundane classroom style environment and put me into a functional job oriented program. It felt like I was learning for an occupation! I was provided plenty of help when I became "stuck" in problems, and yes you will too. The course is challenging.

    The Tech Academy topped off the course with a real project. You cant that from a general CS degree. This was a work-related experience that can be used in your search for a job. Going beyond relative learning; Tech Academy provided training interviews and help in job placement. The Tech Academy was one of the main reasons I was able to stand out in the hiring process of the AF Cyber Command. Definitely relative training and experience.

    I went into this bootcamp having had some experience with coding in the past and with a grasp of some of the concepts and thought processes requisite for coding. I found that the beginning of the course, taught by Erik Gross, was engaging, easy to follow and interesting (I was... engrossed... if you will). Much of the middle of the course is videos made by someone else at the Tech Academy which were also informative and helpful, but didn't carry quite the same quality.

    When the curriculum moves to C# and ASP.NET, you are forwarded to a video series at DevU.com, which you could easily purchase yourself for $80 or so. During the curriculum--learning the different languages--I don't think the value is in the material itself, it is in the support and the environment. When you get stuck or have a question, there is someone to ask about it, be it another student if you are studying locally, or one of the instructors (of which I think there are plenty and they're all nice, smart and approachable). There are a ton of tutorials online to teach you what you want to know, what you're paying for here is support and accountability.

    When you finish the curriculum, you go into two weeks of the Live Project. This part, I thought, was really cool. It is essentially an internship in which you are working on a product in a team with a project manager. You will take little chunks of work and do them in a real-world-ish environment. When you get stuck, you need to fix it--either by asking for help from the team or working through it. At no point do you feel left out on a limb, but you will get experience working through things on your own.

    Finally, you enter the Job Placement section in which you watch a selection of kind of redundant and common sense videos (though they are probably not common sense for many of the less socially inclined students which is why I think they are included). You will read advice on creating a resume and cover letter. After you do that, you'll receive copy/pasted advice on refining them. You'll get added to a mailing list and you'll receive dozens of emails per day containing job listings, some (but few) of which are relevant. The value in this step that I could find is the mock interviews. The placement Director is great at taking you through what to expect at an interview (in fact there are weekly roundtables throughout your time there in which you can do both softskills interviews and technical interviews: I recommend attending all of them).

    In all, I think it's a good experience and worth the money. If I suddenly found myself in the owners' shoes, here's what I would change: 

    First, the in-house curriculum is rife with little errors. None of which affect the students' understanding of concepts at the end of the day, but they're distracting and they sap the students' confidence in the program. 

    Second, I would overhaul the job placement program which felt very under-resourced to me. The Job Placement Director clearly knows what he's doing, but I think his plate is too full to offer the kind of hands-on attention that would be a true value. Looking for a job is, for many people, completely demoralizing, and if you had a weekly meeting in which you discussed which specific jobs you're targeting and how you're building your skills, etc, I think it would feel less lonely and less daunting. If the daily emails students received each had a short preamble specifying which of the listed jobs are good jobs to apply for, I think the emails would feel less like a jumble of wires to be untangled and more like a helpful starting point.

    Finally, I think the transfer between the curriculum and the live project, and the live project and the job placement section could be smoother. When I finished the curriculum on a Monday, I was told that the live project was on hold for the week and to come back in a week. When I finished the live project, it took me a week and a half or so to get feedback on my resume and get started in earnest with the job placement. This was a little frustrating when I was burning $750 a week or so while jobless. I think the student care dept should be looking ahead at when a student is ready to finish a section and make sure that he or she will be ready to make a smooth transition and have expectations clearly communicated.

    All in all, this place is filled with great people and this was a positive experience for me, and I know this place is getting better constantly. If you're thinking of starting a new career in coding, this is a good place to do it.

    Hi Travis! Thank you for the comprehensive and insightful review. You make a number of valid points in here, all of which we have since taken care of:
    1. A few months ago the C# and MVC Courses were both made fully original and are a massive upgrade to the prior content. In fact, at this point our entire curriculum is original Tech Academy Content.
    2. The Job Placement Course has now also been made fully original and contains all of the best and most successful actions taken by our graduates to get jobs.
    3. The curriculum has been overhauled for typographical errors and has been fully rectified.
    4. The transfer between curriculum to live project has been fully rectified. The solution taken correlates to the suggestion you made.

    As you mentioned and as you can tell, we are constantly upgrading our curriculum to make it the best experience possible. Thank you for the feedback, and best of luck in your career!

    I started the Tech Academy with a certain level of understanding in HTML and CSS. I left fully confident in my abilities, and with a new job as a web developer. The courses are designed to drive you towards being a full stack developer, teaching the proper ways to work in this field. Even if the job you get doesn't use the languages taught, the methods that you learned will apply, and you'll be able to pick up anything that much faster.

    My overall opinion:

    If you are a self-motivated individual who is willing to put in the time and effort, this is an excellent program that gives the foundational knowledge and job search support to enter into a software development career.

    My detailed opinion:

    I chose The Tech Academy because I wanted to switch from a non-technical career path to development. Even though I live in the Portland area, I chose to complete the course online as it allowed me greater flexibility in my schedule. The Tech Academy had a great on-boarding process so I was able to jump right in. The curriculum was comprehensive and I appreciated that it went beyond just learning a coding language. We also learned how a computer functions and runs a program, how web applications are rendered, how code is compiled, and the basics of project management. My only reason for giving the curriculum 4 stars instead of 5 is that it would have been useful to also cover unit testing. 

    The instructors were excellent and did a great job of answering any questions that I had. They always replyed promptly to e-mails. The job assistance was also very helpful, especially the opportunity to do a mock-interview with the Job Placement Director. Having no experience interviewing for a technical position, the encouragement and feedback I received during the mock-interview was invaluable in building my confidence.

    I had a terrific time while being involved with The Tech Academy! Through the bootcamp course, I went from having no coding experience to understanding the fundamentals of several programming languages,such as; C#, SQL, JavaScript and web development languages. I thoroughly enjoyed having the opportunity to learn from the course provided and having the ability to contact instructors with any concerns/questions that I had. My only suggestions for anyone interested in attending is this: 1)Make sure you contact instructors with any concerns. My experience with this has always been positive. 2) Try to dive a little deeper into some of the concepts that are mentioned throughout the course. Since this is only a "bootcamp" then you will need to apply some effort into looking into some material yourself to fully comprehend.

    I found my experience at The Tech Academy to be challenging yet very fulfilling. I was surprised at my ability to learn the concepts, facts, and nuances, for each language and I believe it's because of The Tech Academy's approach to teaching. As a remote student, I feel the system was a bit more challenging because I didn't have anyone to discuss questions or concepts with and sometimes I had to wait hours to hear back from the remote instructor because of my schedule- that still worked out fine but I think there is a major advantage to being on-site and having other students and/or instructors to communicate with. That being said, I really got the most out of the Live Project. It was suggested that the Live Project really brings it all together and I couldn't agree more. The Tech Academy pushes students to be active in the industry and network, take on projects, etc to prepare students for their new career. They have it down to a science and it's proven over and over again.

    The Tech Academy provides a well-rounded full-stack format for learning software development. After completing the courses, one has a solid foundation of fundamentals and can use this as a basis for learning additional coding languages and programming concepts, as needed, for any future job position. The courses are self-paced in a very positive environment. There is a tremendous amount of support resources available, including instructors, technical support, weekly soft skill and technical round table forums for interview preparation, an outreach specialist, a job placement director, meetups, and guest lectures. 

     
    The Live Project was a rewarding and insightful process. It helped to advance my coding and research skills and allowed first-hand experience with agile methodology and team collaboration. These are all very valuable skills to have for any software developer role.The job placement course was comprehensive and helped provide the tools needed for applying to and obtaining a job. Even after completion of the program, job placement support continued until I was hired.
     
    Though the courses take self-discipline, hard work, and dedication, the knowledge and experience gained were well worth the effort!

    I choose the to enter a coding boot camp because I wanted to re-invigorate my coding skills. I had learned some coding in school, but when I entered the work force, I didn’t have time to keep up with the latest languages and technologies. I believe that programming languages are the new literacy.

     I looked at several coding boot camps and I choose the Tech Academy for four reasons, 1) Self-paced; I could move through material quickly, if I felt I already have a good grasp of the material and I was able to linger and do exploratory study if I felt I needed more depth. 2) There was a central location I could go to and live instructors to help in case I had problems, for me the central location helped keep me on track and focused. 3) rolling enrollment and I could start any time. 4) There was a live project course, so I was able to get a sense of how software development works.

    In the end I was happy with my choice, I filled the holes in my knowledge and I have strong basis for continued self learning.

    I attended The Tech Academy, first as an online student and, later, as an onsite student in Portland, OR. I did not complete the Job Placement course so I am not officially a graduate even though I have completed all of the actual "learning" at the school. 

    **PRO**

    • The staff are all extremely friendly and personable. 
    • You can complete the program online or in-person at your discretion. 
    • The program is self-paced, so you can complete it very quickly if you dedicate yourself to putting in long hours.
    • The tuition is lower than most bootcamps. (It was $7,000 when I attended.)
    • There are weekly group sessions to practice your soft-skill and technical skill interviewing.

    **CON**

    • The curriculum is not very deep. I learned very little in my time there that I had not already learned at Teamtreehouse.com.
    • There is no sense of "community". Everyone is studying individually at their own pace so it is difficult to brainstorm/commiserate with other students. I came to realize that I very much missed the cohort style of learning that is present at most bootcamps.
    • As I mentioned above, you cannot "graduate" unless you complete their job placement course which is a somewhat heavy-handed, micro-managed process where you are required to submit a daily report on your job-hunting activities in which I chose not to participate. 
    • The feedback on your project submissions is mostly limited to "Nice job. You passed." without giving any good constructive notes on what you can improve upon in your code.
    • There is NO pair programming at any point.
    • There is NO instruction on software testing. This actually hurt me in a recent phone screen interview where I had to admit that I had no exposure to software testing.

    In summary, The Tech Academy is a decent option if you are looking for a low priced school, have spent little time engaged in self-study and are comfortable working solo. If I were making the choice again, I would attend a "traditional" cohort-based bootcamp. 

    It pains me to write such a negative review because the staff at The Tech Academy are genuinely nice people. I simply feel obligated to offer a true accounting of my personal experience at TTA.

    Hi Ted,

    Thanks for your review! I'm sorry you didn't have the greatest experience at The Tech Academy. I think you're totally right in that the traditional lecture-based, non-self-paced school would have been a better option for you, since it sounds like that was more what you were looking for in the first place.

    Each language we teach could, and does, have an entire bootcamp dedicated to learning that one language. So, we wouldn't go as deep into JavaScript as a bootcamp entirely dedicated to teaching JavaScript. The product of The Tech Academy is a well-rounded junior developer, who has a strong foundation and understanding of core development fundamentals including databases, web development, scripting languages, etc. who by the end, can get a job in software and continue to learn and have a lasting career.

    Yes, students do study independently at their own pace. But especially for students who are studying in-person at one of our campuses, there's plenty of opportunity for collaboration and interaction. The weekly soft skills interview roundtable meetings, weekly technical interview roundtables, Wednesday brunches, Friday Tech Talks, and the Live Project at the end of the program all provide opportunities to build camaraderie.

    The Job Placement Course has been completely revamped since you did the program. On this course, we've taken all of the most successful actions and advice from our hundreds of graduates who have gotten jobs, and we put it all into the course. You're welcome to take it now for free. We'd still love to help you in any way to get a job.

    I'm sorry you feel you didn't get adequate feedback on your drills. I will look into this and get any needed correction done on this.

    As mentioned earlier, there is the live project, where student collaborate on a 2-week sprint, working together and developing in an agile environment for a real client. While you're working on the main part of the curriculum, when requested, you are paired up with someone else to work through difficult projects. But paired programming is not the norm throughout the whole program.

    You're right that our main curriculum doesn't cover software testing. However, we do have an optional course that you can take that does cover that. Also, the new Job Placement Course covers the Technical Interview in greater depth, which is another reason you might want to jump onto that. :)

    We'd still love to do anything possible to help give you a better experience and land a job, so feel free to reach out to me personally at vpforquality@learncodinganywhere.com and we can see what we can do.

    Earlier this year, I was laid off from my recurrent temp position of 5 years.. sounds ridiculous, I know, and I had had enough. A former co-worker of mine in the IT department suggested that, since I was interested in software but had no technical background whatsoever and didn't know where to start, that I find a coding bootcamp if I was serious about making the switch. After researching my options, I ended up choosing the Tech Academy because they had a remote option for students, as well as a flexible work schedule. Fortunately for me, I knew ahead of time that I was going to be laid off, so I was able to begin the program while working, up to the end of my tenure. I also selected the Tech Academy because the price was very reasonable for the services they offer, especially compared to their competitors.

    Since completing the program, I will be starting a new job as a junior developer this week, and I'm so excited. The Tech Academy's guidance along the way made changing careers much easier than it would have been had I tried to accomplish it alone.

    I completed this bootcamp and I now work as an instructor at a different bootcamp. I spent about half my time learning online and half in-person.

    It's nice to be able to move at your own pace yet still have real people grade your work. If you're not going to put in more effort than what is asked, you may not have the best experience because the courses are short and only teach you the basics. If you enjoy diving deeper into a subject then this shouldn't be an issue for you. Expect to put in more time than what is stated if you want to walk out of the doors job-ready.

    This biggest negative for me was the lack of any partnerships or reputation with local businesses.

    Hi Jake, 

    Thanks for your review! I'm glad you enjoyed the self-paced aspect of things. And that's awesome you're a teacher at another bootcamp now, well done! You're totally right in that we don't teach absolutely everything about each language you learn. You learn enough to be able to get a job, then on-the-job experience really builds up the expertise, which I'm sure you're doing now on a daily basis. I believe there must have been some type of misunderstanding on the partnerships or reputation with local businesses. New Relic has hired 8 of our graduates and regularly asks for more, and we just sent a handful of our graduates to Summit Wireless for paid internships in C# Developer roles. That's just to name a couple. No, we don't guarantee a job, but we certainly do have strong relationships with various local businesses. Our Job Placement Director (jobplacementdirector@learncodinganywhere.com), Aaron Frichtl, is the person who can point you in the right direction. And if you're looking at moving back into the area, I'm sure we could help give you some direction. I'm glad you're working in the industry now, and hope you have a great career in the future!
