Tucker Mullen

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

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

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!

Joshua Cumpian

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

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!

Natalie Reinicke

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

Kristen McCloud

LEARN did require quite a bit of self-study outside of the classroom, but they gave a good foundation for learning to code. The guaranteed 1-month internship was invaluable, as it gave me great real-world experience that led to a full time position immediately after. Although I transitioned into design, I still use the fundamentals of code I learned at LEARN to communicate with developers every day. It’s a huge reason why I was able to…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

Jezreel Go

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.

Dante Moore

Learn Academy is a fast-paced program for getting practical experience with many different relevant technologies in a short amount of time. The immersive portion happens quickly,  students are exposed to Git, data structures, and we were pair programming daily through the day's projects. The curriculum is structured for layering in new technologies, and before you know it, you're familiar with relational databases and doing a deep dive into the inner workings of Rails. The instructors…view more

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. ANNNND... University takes 4…view more

Evan Powell

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

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!

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
