Bob Dennett

At a time in my life where I was ready for a big change, I came to LEARN, and it was the best decision I have ever made! Everyone from the staff to my classmates were nothing short of top notch thank you all so much!

Drew Haines

I am a software engineer and the founder multiple software companies in San Diego. After consistently taking LEARN interns, I can honestly say LEARN is one of the BEST places to learn programming in San Diego. They set you up with the right software tools and practices that took me YEARS to learn on my own. I seriously know computer science graduate students that don't know the stuff they are teaching.

Greg Foreman

Through a concrete curriculum, extremely strong network, public speaking opportunities, and intensive job prep LEARN helped me land my first job as a developer within a week after my internship. Even after graduation, LEARN continues to provide me with tools to get out of my head and get into the world and make an impact through extended education opportunities at meetups and various networking events.

Justin Hatch

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…view more

Caitlin Johnson

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

Randy S Tseng

Doing a career switch is no easy feat but LEARN made it such a smooth process.  I was able to find an amazing job as a software developer right after my internship and although it's more of an atypical outcome, the fact that such a possibility exists shows just how legitimate the LEARN program is. I absolutely do not regret my decision at all!

Young Hsu

LEARN was a great opportunity for me to make a career pivot at a crucial time in my life. Really thankful for the instructors who taught a good curriculum as well as fostered a supportive community. The internship program that LEARN offers was instrumental in helping me get my foot in the door!

Lindsey Handley, PhD

Our small business, ThoughtSTEM, is a partner of LEARN. As partners, we provide 1-month internship experiences for LEARN students after they learn Ruby/Javascript for 3 months. It's been a fantastic partnership - LEARN students have been excellently proficient after only 3 months of coding education and they always contribute positively to the projects they work on with us. We've had two groups of LEARN interns so far who worked on: (1) designing back-end software that…view more

Emma Castor

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

Steven McFarlane

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

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

Michael Bastos

These guys are doing an awesome job training developers who use critical thinking in everything they do.

Christina Buster

The community at Learn! is extremely supportive and helpful throughout the bootcamp as well as you enter the job force. It is an amazing environment!

LeaAnn Bradford

I attended LEARN academy from July 2016 to November 2016. I looked into the various bootcamps here in San Diego and the internship that is part of the curriculum set LEARN apart from other bootcamps. I can't say enough about how awesome my experience was. It was very challenging, but at the same time it was manageable.

David Donahue

Even after finishing LEARN Academy's web development boot camp, the owners, instructors and staff welcome us alumni back with open arms. They have an open door policy when it comes to using the space and resources to work on freelance or personal projects as well as career services to help with resumé writing, employment searches and interview prep. This is a place run by people who truly care about your success!
