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!

Greg Sherrid

The LEARN academy interns were able to add genuinely valuable fixes and new features to the website within the duration of the internship. They exceeded our expectations, which is to both their and your credit.

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

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

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

Attending LEARN Academy was one of the best, most satisfying decisions I've ever made for the growth of my career. I spent a few months researching the coding bootcamp I wanted to attend. I remember scouring the internet for reviews on every possible bootcamp. Some seemed too focused on just shoving people through the curriculum or not being worth the money in one way or another. Online bootcamps seemed way too shady and disconnected from…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!

Kevin Kochanski

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

I went to LEARN academy in January of 2018 to study full-stack web development. I did almost all the prep-work, and by week 8 of the program I was putting in at least 15 hours a week outside of class. Nearly every week there was an evening event to attend to learn more about development. Sometime around week 7 some classmates and I attended and placed in a 12 hour Saturday hackathon. By week 11…view more

Vincent Grato

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

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.

Michael Bastos

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

Krithika Jagadeesan

It was a great experience, learned a lot about coding! But more importantly learned how to be a better programmer, to learn more programming languages in the future.

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.
