The time that I spent at NYCDA was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. I came to NYCDA in the hopes of switching fields from elementary education to the tech industry, and that change would not have been an option for me without NYCDA. The course was both rigorous and engaging, and the program‰Ûªs learn-by-doing approach taught both necessary technical content and practical skills such as resourcefulness, logic, and analysis. The instructor was knowledgeable and helpful, and the staff cares about their students. After graduating, the staff has followed up with me regularly, offering job placement assistance. I have already worked a contract position in Quality Assurance, and, because of NYCDA, I can now look forward to a career in an industry that I find interesting, challenging, and rewarding. Thank you, NYCDA

I decided to learn how to code in order to go in a new direction in my career. Moving to New York City was a huge gamble for me and at the time, I was not sure which bootcamp I should attend. The New York Code + Design Academy exceeded all of my expectations. Having no coding experience before, I'm still surprised that I am able to build a fully functioning web application on my own. For me, what made the experience unique was the culture of the school. It felt like a private school for coding schools where the instructors and staff treat their responsibilites at a personal level. The dedication and enthusiasm to teach and learn was contagious. I have no regrets and even plan on taking some evening courses with them!

I am an alumn of the third cohort of the New York City Tech Talent Pipeline Residency @ Queens College. It is a four-month program that provides exposure to professional opportunities in tech for computer science majors. Upon completion of an initial four week web development and job readiness course, delivered on-campus by an instructor from the New York Code + Design Academy, participants begin a paid internship at leading NYC businesses in web and mobile development roles and connection to job opportunities post-graduation. As a student tranisitioning from academia to the workforce, the process was grueling, arduous, and daunting. However, NYCDA made the experience just a little less painful. It was comforting knowing I always had someone to turn to (whether it be Amanda, Nicole, Maddy, Krystal, or any of their various instructors) throughout the various setbacks and rejections I inevitably encountered. They motivated and inspired me when I lacked the confidence to do it myself. The individualized, one-on-one attention that their career coaches provided allowed us to know where my strengths/weaknesses where. Too often, people in the industry turn a blind eye/ear to the people looking to enter the workforce. NYCDA took the time to listen to me no matter how busy they might have been.

To start with, I'm a real grad who now has a real full time dev job that pays a competitive market rate salary for my level of experience. Before I took anything at NYCDA I tried learning on my own for a few months on Treehouse, codeacademy, and even Udemy. I started with the evening Web Dev 100 course b/c I wasn't sure yet about the 3 month commitment. I loved the instructors and found the curriculum to be just enough to give me confidence that I could really learn this stuff. So i enrolled in the full time WDI. This was a much different experience with again GREAT instructors. The curriculum is very much industry standard but it gave me a taste of everything that I have been exposed to thus far in my 1+ month of real work. The JS/Rails instructors are extremely knowledgable in the their respective fields and truly passionate about teaching. All that won't mean much if you aren't serious about putting in the work and having the discipline to practice and study. Jeremy, Zach, and whole team are there to support you throughout the process and even afterwards if you need them. I had some very limited technical knowledge going in but there were other (now hired) students with much less. Practice a lot, read a lot, and use NYCDA resources for help and you will no doubt get better. Feel free to message me if you have any questions about my review.

I have taken classes a few other places and NYCDA is the best! I started out with Web 100 and then moved on to the Frontend class as well as Angular. I loved it! Not only did I learn a ton, but they helped me land a job post taking the classes and I'm still working there today. Every class is what you put into it, but not only are the teachers great here, but the staff is attentive, checks in with everyone and makes a point of ensuring that you are getting what you need to be set up for success.

I took Wed Development 100 last year. I had an idea and wanted to build it but had zero tech experience. A few of us were having trouble with the transition from learning HTML & CSS to JavaScript and the instructor held additional tutorials on the weekend... and made himself available at any time over email or skype. The course fee has been a great investment for me as once you're in, you're part of the community... they hold regular events and always there for you... from one of their meet & greet sessions I recruited a 3 person tech team from the WD Intensive course, built the MVP and ended up finding my tech partner through them. To this day Zach & Jeremy are still helping me out. Take a look at the website we're building bincika.com. We're getting ready to release it, so it's not fully operational yet. To give you context I designed the UX/UI for this (most of it) during the course AND was working full time... if you're willing to put in the time, you can achieve a lot. Good luck!

There are many ways to go about your tech journey, but NYCDA stands apart from them all. It‰Ûªs been less than a year since I have graduated from this school, but in that time it has expanded to several different locations. This growth is a testament to the type of value NYCDA brings to its students. One major highlight is the community that has been set in place by the instructors and employees. The environment is supportive and encouraging for a student to succeed in whatever it is he or she is working on. As a beginner, you can reach out to any instructor or peer and they will be more than happy to help you any time of the day with any issue. Another reason why NYCDA stands apart is because of the Career Services Team. After your coursework ends it‰Ûªs time to find an opportunity that is appropriate for your goals and the Outcomes Coordinator Krystal Kaplan has proven to me that she genuinely cares. She supported me after I graduated by helping me refine my resume, encouraged me during my search for employment and ultimately referred me for an internship which aligns perfectly with my goals. NYCDA is there to help you foster intellectual development in the field of tech and help you with your journey thereafter. The motivation to succeed ultimately comes from yourself, so have goals in mind and put in the work! Ultimately, I am very happy that I made the choice to pursue learning at NYCDA !

UI/UX Design 101

Hi everyone! I am a front end developer from Russia. Last summer I decided to combine business with pleasure, broaden my knowledge in UI/UX Design while improving my English. I read a lot of reviews about various bootcamps and chose the User Experience/User Interface Intensive at The New York Code + Design Academy. The New York City campus is located in the center of the Financial District, what I regarded as an advantage because it took me only about half an hour to reach the place by metro. Since the very first day, I was pleasantly surprised by the family atmosphere at the school, the friendly attitude of the staff, the comfort and coziness of the area and well-equipped classrooms. Our course instructor, Jimmy Chandler, is a great specialist in Interface design and a wonderful teacher whose lectures were cleverly structured and supplemented by activity tasks. It was really cool to chat with him about some new tech issues at the lunch breaks. Each week, NYCDA invited specialists in design to share their experience, ideas and new technologies with us. Meetings were held in a format of business lunch. Throughout the course, the school also organized extracurricular lectures in New York City museums. To supplement our work in the course, the Outcomes Producer, Krystal Kaplan, provided the most informative lectures on self-presentation, going through the interview process and creating the perfect CV. She met one-on-one with each student to give them tailored recommendations. With Krystal‰Ûªs help I managed to make important improvements into my personal website. This bootcamp helped me discover this new field and made me a full stack developer. Now I know the all methods of researching in design and how I can use them. I learned how to conduct interviews and how to test prototypes. I completely mastered the Sketch and several other apps for creating interactive prototypes. By the end of course I added three completed projects to my portfolio. Coming back to Russia I found a job at a global company. Apart from the professional benefits, I made many new friends. I want to sincerely thank all the people who were with me at that time - it was one the greatest experiences in my life!
