"Those little 'ah-has' happened daily for me, usually after a meteoric rise in frustration. I do remember feeling like I was unambiguously better than when I started after figuring out how to write a ruby script that mashed up Nietzsche quotes with Nicki Minaj tweets."

— LAURYN, DBC San Francisco
Software Engineer at Autodesk

"Websites are something I use on a daily basis but always thought it was too complicated to understand how they really work. Once I made my own website, I realized that not only did I fully understand it but I could now build one myself. It was truly a life-changing moment."

Software Engineer at Adafruit

"The whole experience was great. The people were amazing. It was amazing to me how so many different instructors could work together so well in the same environment. Some are more formal, some more casual and brash, and others more classic and methodical."
