"UX Design Mecca"

I just completed BCA's first UX Design Bootcamp. It was an amazing experience. If you're in an appropriate time zone, you can take this bootcamp remotely. I wasn't anywhere near Burlington and I still felt connected. Their biggest strength is that the... Read More

"A great experience that continues to provide help moving forward"

As a career changer, jumping into a course like this was a bit scary, and definitely a huge risk. Quitting my job, dropping a decent sum of money, and not working for three months is a big ask when you have kids, but the folks over at BCA were always... Read More

"Confidence building for those with some pre-existing JS knowledge"

I came into this program having "self taught" JS to myself. I'd used online tutorials and books but didn't have a lot of confidence in the things I was doing. This course helped me harness the confidence that I was able to do it. The course was very good... Read More

The positivity and welcoming nature of BCA is unrivaled.
If you need help with anything, these folks would go our their way to help you. That is invaluable.

"Awesome bootcamp experience"

I really appreciated the positive atmosphere at Burlington Code Academy. We were encouraged to have fun, support one other, take breaks, and experiment and grow in our own way.

The instructors we had were top notch and came with lots of real-world experience... Read More

The projects they designed for us were fun and challenging. Getting to work with other students through pair programming, peer code reviews, and the longer-term capstone project taught me so much because my eyes were constantly being opened to new ways of approaching a problem. It was also helpful in the job search to already have working full-stack applications in my portfolio.

I like the course’s emphasis on Agile development principles because so many companies use Agile. It made my transition to a new job in software easier because the Agile process felt familiar from my time at Burlington Code Academy.

The skills I gained at Burlington Code Academy allowed me to break into the field of web development and work every day at a job that I enjoy.
