Sam Sale

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...view more

What mattered to me the most were the people. I found out about LEARN from attending an SD Ruby Meetup. One of the people, Rob Kaufman (co-founder of LEARN) was giving a talk that broke things down in a way that made it easy for me understand how parts of Rails functioned. That was huge because at that time, I did not have a clear idea of what Rails was. I think it also says...view more

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...view more

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...view more

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...view more

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...view more

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.

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.

Vincent Grato

The team appreciated how Tyler was responsive to code reviews and internalized feedback because of this he grew quickly as a 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!

Russell Rees

We enjoy working with LEARN students not only because of their eagerness to become better developers but also because we value their highly diverse backgrounds and experiences.

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.

Rebecca Colavin

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...view more

If you're looking for a challenge and you want your career to be a creative outlet, this bootcamp is a good jumpstart into the inventive world of computer programming. LEARN academy will introduce you to the popular technologies used by many companies (Git, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, Bootstrap, SQL, RSpec, Ruby, and Rails) and give you the space to create webpages and web applications with motivated peers. A big plus with LEARN is that they're...view more

I had been programming as a hobby and to help in my profession as an internet marketer for several years and wanted to switch to programming as my career. After a lot of searching for a bootcamp to help with this change in career I found LEARN in San Diego. It appealed to me for a few reasons. I wanted to move back to the San Diego area where I grew up, the bootcamp focused...view more
