I attended the Make School summer academy in Tokyo. It was the most amazing experience I've ever had. When the summer academy starts the instructors teaches us the fundamentals of computer science.
At first it might feel difficult when you start learning but once you get hang of it it becomes really fun learning how to make an app. During the summer academy instructors taught us Swift to make an iOS app for iPhone.
The most wonderful thing about Make School is that they teach us product design so that students can know what app they want to make and the instructors gives students very clear advice to improve their app ideas.
Make School instructors encourages students to make things and they encourage students to be passionate about something they like.

Make School believes in learning by making. From the very first day you will start building apps and as you learn more you will build cooler apps. You will get a chance to work with other bright minds in a hackathon, where you and your team will build an app from scratch. You will also be challenged to come with an original app which you will ship to the App Store and present to a huge audience on demo day. Attending Make School is really cool and you will learn a lot, actually it will change your life and put you a level up in the tech playing field.
As someone who just graduated highschool, I figured I would go to make school and start doing something with my life. With my huge ego I decided not to go in the explorer track even though I had basically no coding experience. I jumped right into the games track and within a few days we started working on the tutorials that were based around copying other games. They were easy, but for someone who knew almost nothing about code, it was a lot to process and I felt like I fell behind. After 2 weeks, when we started to work on pur own projects everything started turning around. With the help of the awesome games instructors and the tutorials and internet as resources I was back on track in no time, and by the end I finished and shipped a game I am quite proud of. Awesome stuff. Lots of goo...Read more
Make school ended a week ago and I truly miss it. What I love the most was the community of peers, we were all at different stage of our programming journey. Ranging from experience, beginners to complete novice and this common passion brought us all together. The instructors are fantastic!
In Summer Academy, you can learning with your new friends. The instructors are all around and provide sessions and support for you. I'm a beginner in design mobile APP, this academy helps me build experience quickly. I think it's powerful and helpful that you can get different good advice at the same issue from different instructors.
I attended the 2015 Summer Academy and it changed my life. Before the summer academy, I had average background in CS from online courses. The outcome of the academy wasn't just iOS development; as the course content is free and open-sourced. We learned product development from idea to shipping. The instructors are top engineers who are fun and great people. I made a lot of friends there whom I am still in touch with. I gained a lot of experience talking to investors and entrepreneurs. Now, I am a Junior CS student who works part-time as a Mobile Developer at Toptal.
I attended the Make School Summer Academy in 2015 with codeacademy tutorials as my only coding background. The academy paved a way for me to get into programming, and I'm now working at a game development company. The instructors are really helpful and I made friends that I still keep in touch with to this day. Overall a fantastic summer experience!
Some of the pros were:
1) My classmates/the generally positive atmosphere: everyone was super supportive of each other and eager to learn; I never felt like I needed to kick into competitive mode around my fellow summer academy students
2) Our instructors were so helpful in making sure we stayed on track. I received advice on all topics, ranging from how multithreading works to tips on overcoming stage fright during a pitch.
I can't really remember many cons, other than that the tuition was a little steep. It would also be awesome to see some front-end/back-end development summer academy tracks in the future.
Yes, Make School is the future of computer science higher education. And yes, it is debt free. And yes, it has spectacular outcomes. But you already knew that by visiting the site....So, I am going to say some of the unique aspects Make School provides over any college or bootcamp!
First of all Make School is not a bootcamp. It is a college program that delivers on providing significant depth into topics but also breadth! There is a huge focus and expertise in iOS development, but there are opportunities to explore and dive deep into iOT, full stack web development, backend, scripting, AI, design, and many many more technical classes!
While technical classes are great and essential to landing a great development gig - they are not everything...and many schools and bootcamps fr...Read more
