"Good experience"

My time with Techtonica was a good experience overall. If you are a women or non-binary individual I can not think of another program with the benefits at the same level as Techtonica. You get six months to learn and understand what it means to work in... Read More

"An awesome journey that I already miss."

Techtonica was a difficult but amazing journey. You learn A LOT because Techtonica not only teaches you a full stack (PERN: Postgres, Express, React and Nodejs) but you also learn how to work in a tech environment by learning how to communicate, learning... Read More

Techtonica was an awesome experience! While it was very challenging and sometimes I had major impostor syndrome, it is set up in a way to really help participants work through challenges and be successful. The staff is awesome and always make themselves... Read More

"An opportunity that can't be missed!"

Being a part of Techtonica has changed my life. I gave up coding 2 years ago because I wasn't making any progress and then last year in 2021 I decided to give it another chance and came across Techtonica. I now have built full-stack apps within 6 months,... Read More

"Life changer"

This program is intense but beautiful. I went in expecting to of course learn Javascript, but came out with so much more. We learned the PERN stack, how to collaborate with others, how to work with github, the terminal being ur friend and not your foe,... Read More

"From knowing only how to write loops and functions to creating full-stack applications!"

I started coding just half a year before joining Techtonica. My coding experience was limited to writing loops, creating functions, and solving some algorithms. I had never created any applications and didn't know what front-end, back-end, API and databases... Read More

"So glad I found out about this program when I did."

I spent years trying to save up money to get into a program. When I first heard of Techtonica, it was the first time I saw a program that seemed to genuinely care about representation and equitable efforts to get underrepresented groups into Tech. It... Read More

"Constantly Growing"

There was a major overhaul and lots of improvements this spring. If I had to say one thing about the program, its that you can see your feedback make a difference. Even though we're in the virtual form, Techtonica feels like a very people/team culture.... Read More

"Forever grateful for this experience."

When I applied, I honestly wasn't expecting much of this program and had little trust that it wasn't more than a scam, but I needed a change in structure. College moves at way too slow of a pace when you're a low-income, single mother living paycheck... Read More
