See What People Have to Say About LEARN academy

Mina Chuong

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

I definitely think and believe that if I did not attend LEARN I most likely would not have ended up at my current company. It was such a perfect fit career, goals, culture, and even location wise. I give many thanks to the staff for really knowing how to pair the students off with intern companies. The curriculum was definitely, at times, rigorous, but it's mainly because of how little time you have to really…view more

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!

Jeff Olen

As part of the first Learn cohort I was uncertain of what to expect, in retrospect it was the best decision I could have made. Quite aside from the great curriculum, the experience was awesome. The sense of belonging and camaraderie made all the difference. Many thanks to Chelsea and Rob!

Carrie Johnson

Learn was a great experience and really taught me the fundamentals. I was able to take what I learned and land the career of my dreams. LEARN truly is a community that empowers its students to be great.

Debbie Espino

LEARN was the best decision I've made EVER! Quitting my full time job was the hardest part, but once I realized how much there is to learn, and grow, it was literally the best decision I've made. I had a career in a non-technical background and tried to learn something totally new. It was my turn to take my career into my hands and physically change it for the better. You can go to code…view more

My time at LEARN Academy was one of the best experiences of my life honestly. I came into it expecting to be good. But it ended up being great! I knew it would be challenging, which it was. I knew it would be hard at times, and it was. And I knew it would be a lot to take in, in such a small amount of time, and it was. LEARN Academy and their instructors…view more

Josh Smith

We worked with some interns who graduated from LEARN and were absolutely floored by how incredible they were. Even though LEARN is ostensibly a Ruby on Rails and JavaScript bootcamp, the women who interned with us managed to pick up an entirely new language *and* a framework in the span of just a couple weeks. And then they went on to be really productive in both!

If you are looking for a career change, have invested some personal time exploring the field, and are ready to take action - LEARN Academy is the place for you. My time at LEARN was great and I have no regrets. I would not be where I am today without the school so I am forever greatful for this.

Bryan Oster

I made the decision to pay the tuition and get through the 16-week JavaScript Web Developer Coding Bootcamp at LEARN, and see what’s what. Why? Because I knew that it was something that I wanted to do before I left this Earth. I’m not (too) old, and I’m not sick, but if not now then when? When I’m 70? Sure, maybe, but stars had aligned and it was time. So I pay, and I go,…view more

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!

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

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

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
