    Amazing community and quality education

    I participated in the Backend Engineering program with Turing and had a fantastic experience. The instructors throughout the entire program were excellent - knowledgable, supportive, and kind. The curriculum was great, and notably more comprehensive than what other schools offer. There's a real focus on building not just the technical knowledge of web app creation, but also the familiarity with industry tools and practices - specifically working collaboratively on group projects using Gi...

    Backend Engineer

    Turing was more challenging and more rewarding than I could have imagined before experiencing it. The amount of support throughout the entire experience was exceptional. There will always be someone who's ahead of you in learning and that's alright because the community you're in with your peers, mentors(who are alumni themselves), and instructors are always willing to support your learning. There were folks who had to "repeat" sections of school and it wasn't something looked down upon ...

    Turing is an excellent choice.

    Turing provides a high-quality, well-rounded tech education.  In addition to learning specific coding skills, students also spend time learning about high-level tech concepts, job hunt strategies, networking opportunities, industry best practices, and how to be a valued, empathetic team member.  Key concepts include Test Driven Development and Agile Workflow, among many others.
    In terms of developing coding skills, instruction is delivered by knowledgable and practiced teachers who us...

    Software Developer

    Turing is equal parts challenging and rewarding. Be prepared for very long hours, challenging coursework and a strong, multifaceted support structure. Be ready to challenge your own assumptions, confront your biases and reflect on your own habits. Turing is as much about personal growth as it is about learning to develop software, which is what makes it so unique and rewarding.

    Front End Developer

    I came from an engineering background and decided to attend because I had heard the success stories. I learned a TON and have already almost doubled my salary at my first developer position. It's definitely a marathon, so be prepared for some exhausting nights! Ultimately it's worth it though because I feel that the tools they provided have completely prepared me for my future in web development.

    Incredibly challenging & incredibly rewarding

    I landed at Turing after considering 3-4 other schools. What drew me in was the thorough curriculum, the length of the program, the program options, and the community. The length and thoroughness go hand in hand - with Turing being ~2x as long as most other programs I came across, it's inevitable that there will be a wider breath and depth of learning opportunities. Being able to choose between the front- and back-end programs means going even deeper, while also having the option to expl...

    Best Boot Camp Out There

    There is really no comparison in terms of the quality of education in boot camps. 

    So many boot camps are 3-4 months and generalized with frontend and backend. There is so much to learn about both that I feel like you could never do a deep dive into anything at one of those programs. You would barely even scratch the surface of anything. Turing makes you dive into frontend or backend for 7 months making you a strong candidate with the necessary fundamentals to learn the other side...

    A Recent Graduate from Turing

    Turing is an amazing experience. I started the Front-end program in November of 2020 and graduated earlier this month, June 2021. I won't lie: it's really hard. But it's doable and you will absolutely leave feeling like you know how to program. Here are some major takeaways:

    You cover a lot of material in a short amount of time, and you implement everything you learn in various projects. 
    You learn industry best practices as well as i...

    Comfort zones are a beautiful place but nothing ever grows there

    TL;DR your experience is what you make it :D
    I came to Turing after 7 years as an elementary educator with minimal programming knowledge and no technical experience. I started the front-end engineering program in January 2020. Turing also offers a back-end engineering program. I attended one module in person before the school switched to a fully remote model. 
    I chose Turing because of the strong in-person community, length of the program, as well as their mission to foster inclusi...

    Fantastic Program

    Turing is hard, very hard but that is by design to help you be the best developer possible. The challenge is designed to help you learn and help that material stick. It is also designed to help you learn how to learn, so that once you are on the job you have the tools to keep learning and improving. The instructors and the staff are all fantastic. They support and guide you the whole way. The community and network is even better, you'll be hard pressed to find a better group of people. T...
