LEARN provides you with all the tools that you will need to launch your career in web or software development!  That isn’t to say that you can just glide through the program, you will have to work hard to capitalize on these resources.  After my program I felt like I had everything I needed in order to start a job or independently continue my education.   In my opinion it teaches you how to go about learning, which will be an ever present aspect of your career.  Most importantly, the LEARN family will always be there to lend a helping hand.

I could easily write a review on how many different languages, technologies and frameworks I encounter on the bootcamp but I would like to comment on depth of course. You learn so much more than just code. You develop as a person because you are pushed in so many ways. You’ll learn how to present, collaborate, challenge and communicate. You’ll be taught by dedicated and engaged teachers who have the interpersonal skills to make complex subject easy to digest. You have access to a brilliant week of career development which is so key in landing your first job as a developer, as you’ll soon realize it not just how well you code that will secure you your first role in tech. You are pushed hard with coding independently but conversely you have access to developers with decades of knowledge and “know how” so you never feel stranded. I have made friends for life on the bootcamp through the collaborative nature of the course. It was a key chapter in my not just my career, but my life.

There are a lot of things to learn and experience while attending LEARN Academy. One of the best things I learned was that the opportunities provided are a direct reflection of what you put into your own experience. That is, the staff at LEARN are there to be your advocate and they can help guide you along your journey to becoming a solid developer, but you have to want to go on the journey. There are a lot of ways to learn code; however, the support you get within the LEARN community is found only at one place, LEARN Academy. The curriculum is flexible and tailored to what you and your cohort need. The professional development and internship opportunities are fantastic and will give you the edge when pursing a job. There are even meetups and guest speakers to expand your network and give insight into the local tech community. It might feel intimidating at first, but everyone is there to see you succeed. I entered LEARN Academy thinking I knew what to expect, but what I ended up gaining was beyond anything I could have predicted. Yes, you’ll learn how to code extremely well, but LEARN also will help you develop the most important thing, yourself.

I am very grateful for the education I received from the top notch staff at Learn Academy. They taught me the foundation of how to learn and think code which set me up for success in the present future. I highly recommend Learn Academy to those who aspire to transition into the dynamic field of computer science.

Being at LEARN Academy not only kept me motivated to cram months and months of full stack development knowledge within a short period of time, but the staff and leadership shared past experiences and lessons learned as a developer, offered mentorship, and provided access to the invaluable network within San Diego. I cannot thank LEARN Academy enough to allow me to switch from being a healthcare management consultant to a data engineer within a few months, which ultimately allowed me to achieve my goal of being within the software industry and actually making a difference. While I am done with my boot camp experience at LEARN Academy, I know that I will keep them involved in my current and future plans and help them continue their amazing efforts within the San Diego community.

I came to LEARN to disrupt my mid-career boredom. There were a few bootcamp-style options, but I was drawn to LEARN for several reasons: the unique internship aspect of the program; a commitment to diversity I saw in their staff, alumni, and community involvement; their place at the center of an active tech community; and the fact that, because they are local, they would be in touch with the needs of San Diego employers. I’m over 40 and approach all new situations with skepticism. I started LEARN waiting to find out that it was all a sham, that I’d been taken for a ride, or that the level of learning was nothing I couldn’t find in a few YouTube videos and I am SO happy to say I was wrong. All of what drew me to LEARN in the first place proved to be true. The educators are so passionate about the success of each student, as is the management – they have a reputation to uphold in this community, and that start with putting well-prepared program grads into the workforce. Beyond the tech curriculum and the amazing educators, two extremely valuable pieces of this program are the Career Services and the Internship. Students have real interviews with real companies, no smoke and mirrors. And the professional development portion of the curriculum combined with ongoing career services advice is WAY more than I ever got from NYU.

LEARN provided me a path to level up from passionate hobbyist to developer. More than that, my time at LEARN was empowering and gave me confidence in my ability to succeed as a software developer.

Jenny Pletner

Attending Learn Academy was one of the best experiences of my life! Learn provided the education, support and encouragement I needed to realize my dream of becoming a software developer. I am proud to be part of the dynamic and inviting community that Learn has created!

LEARN was absolutely instrumental in getting me to where I am today. Before I attended LEARN I was stuck in a marketing job with little opportunity for advancement and days full of busywork. Now, I am a junior engineer at the beginning of a (hopefully!) long and productive career. My employment outlook is significantly brighter: I have a better job that’s more fun and engaging, pays better, is more stable, has more room for internal growth and advancement, and values my personal and professional growth. And should I ever choose to leave it, there are tons of great opportunities in the industry to move on to other organizations doing exciting work with an ever-evolving technology stack. Changing careers was a big and scary step, and it isn’t easy, but LEARN has consistently supported and empowered me to make this change, and that support continues today, more than a year after I graduated from their program.

A year ago, I was a wedding planner. Today, I am a software engineer at a Fortune 500 company. People laugh when I tell them that…like they think it must be a joke. Let’s be real: it does sound like a joke. But it’s 100% true, and that is in large part due to my experience at LEARN. Go to LEARN. Gain an education. Leave with a family.

When I applied to Learn, I was struggling, as an older woman, to find a job. At Learn, I found not only technical instruction but also general professional guidance for entering industry. In particular, the internship (and I could say a lot of things about how hard they work at getting you an internship with the right fit) gets you into the workplace and builds confidence (and a goodly number of those internships turn into jobs, as happened to me). The level of commitment to students is exceptionally high, the instructor to student ratio is outstanding and the curriculum both well thought out and highly flexible. I highly recommend the program. It has, quite literally, been a life changer for me.
